London 1814... Drake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love. Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn´t meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture. She´ll never fit in with the ton, especially if they discover she´s been pretending to be a man within the scientific community. As Drake´s family makes over Penelope, turning her from naive bluestocking to enchanting debutante, he is put upon to introduce her to society and eligible bachelors. Despite dance lessons and new gowns, Penelope is the opposite of poised and sophisticated as she stumbles from one mishap to the next. Why then, does he find it so hard to resist her? 1.

Polite Society doesn´t take Lady Anne Adamson seriously. However, Anne isn´t just another pretty young miss. When she discovers her father betrayed her mother´s love and her family descended into poverty, Anne comes up with a plan to marry a respectable, powerful, and honorable gentleman - a man nothing like her philandering father. Armed with the Heart of a Duke pendant, fabled to land the wearer a duke´s heart, she decides to enlist the aid of the notorious Harry, Sixth Earl of Stanhope. A scoundrel with a scandalous past, he is the last gentleman she´d ever wed... however, his reputation marks him the perfect man to school her in the art of seduction so she might ensnare the illustrious Duke of Crawford. Harry, the Earl of Stanhope, is a jaded, cynical rogue who lives for his own pleasures. Having been thrown over by the only woman he ever loved so she could wed a duke, he´s not at all surprised when Lady Anne approaches him with her scheme to capture another duke´s affection. He´s come to appreciate that all women are in fact greedy, title-grasping, self-indulgent creatures. And with Anne´s history of grating on his every last nerve, she is the last woman he´d ever agree to school in the art of seduction. Only his friendship with the lady´s sister compels him to help. What begins as a pretend courtship, born of lessons on seduction, becomes something more, leaving Anne to decide if she can give her heart to a reckless rogue, and Harry must decide if he´s willing to again trust in a lady´s love. 1.

She lives for passion. Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society´s rules: She speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London´s most practiced gossips...and precisely the kind of woman the duke of Leighton wants far far away from him. He swears by reputation. Scandal is the last thing Simon Pearson has room for in his well-ordered world. The Duke of Disdain is too focused on keeping his title untainted and his secrets unknown. But when he discovers Juliana hiding in his carriage late one evening - risking everything he holds dear - he swears to teach the reckless beauty a lesson in propriety. She has other plans, however; she wants two weeks to prove that even an unflappable duke is not above passion. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barrie Kreinik.

A Clinical Trials Manual From The Duke Clinical Research Institute:Lessons from a Horse Named Jim Margaret Liu, Kate Davis
Her Aunt Allegra said, ´´A young lady with a fortune is subject to all sorts of untoward attentions by the worst sort of vagrants.´´ It is a lesson Tabitha Timmons, a penniless spinster, has never needed to heed. That is, until she is left a vast fortune payable only upon her marriage to the very respectable Mr. Barkworth - a match that offers little chance of discovering exactly what her aunt means by ´´untoward attentions.´´ But the same can´t be said when the Duke of Preston happens along Tabitha´s path. He spies a rebellious streak in her that matches his own, and he makes it his mission to save her from such a passionless match, interfering in her life at every turn. All too soon, Preston - whose very name spells ruin - has Tabitha caught between the good fortune that guarantees her security, and his kiss, which promises an entirely different kind of happily-ever-after. 1.
