When I woke up next to a beautiful woman in Vegas, I saw an opportunity. A business opportunity. She pretends to be my wife for a year, and I get my family to keep their mouths shut about settling down. And she gets a payday that changes her life. Lucky girl. But I didn’t count on what came next. She’s different than anyone I’ve ever met. Unmaterialistic. Not spoiled. And there’s a kindness to her I’ve never seen before. Not to mention, the woman is sexy as hell. Pretending to be her loving husband in public is starting to blur lines in private. But I don’t believe in love. My past reminds me that it doesn’t exist. Only problem is, I was wrong. Amaya does believe in love. And hell, maybe I’m starting to as well. But it’s never that easy. This is book 2 of a trilogy. You will have to purchase book 1 and 3 to finish the story.

Who made an enemy of two ladies through an apple? Why did Tar Baby keep on sayin' nothin'? Which royal residence is built on thirteen thousand piles? These questions are part of the fiendishly difficult annual quiz that began in 1905 on the Isle of Man at a boys' boarding school.

Quizmaster Pat Cullen has prepared these devilishly difficult questions that will prove a challenge for even the most erudite of minds. The World's Most Difficult Quiz 2 is the ultimate trivia challenge.

This is a companion to The Creative Writing Handbook - now in its second edition. It is very much aimed at the individual writer, based on the idea that real writing comes from within and that writing is a craft, skill with determination, art with attitude. The book is filled with useful ideas and inspiring techniques for exploring and exploiting resources available, both within and without. It focuses on three major areas - the writer's roots (family, class and gender), the writer's resources (memory and language) and the writer's art (form and technique). Chapters focus on many topics, including how memory shapes a writer's material, the pro-creative force of words and the ambiguities of art and artfulness. Many examples of established writers' works are cited to give the fledgling writer much practical help.

Making Poetry Matter draws together contributions from leading scholars in the field to offer a variety of perspectives on poetry pedagogy. A wide range of topics are covered including: - Teacher attitudes to teaching poetry in the urban primary classroom - Digital poetry and multimodality - Resistance to poetry in Post-16 English Throughout, the internationally recognised contributors draw on case studies to ensure that the theory is clearly linked to classroom practice. They consider the teaching and learning challenges that poetry presents for those working with learners aged between 5 and 19 and explore these challenges with reference to reading; writing; speaking and listening and the transformative nature of poetry in different contexts.
