Maris Sulle has been an outsider his whole life. He grew up with a secret that cost him everything. Ture has spent his life hiding from everyone around him while trying desperately to fit in. But in his darkest hour, Ture is saved by a hero he thought only existed in novels, a man every bit as scarred and mistrusting as he is and who has no interest in being dragged into another relationship with anyone. And when old enemies return to threaten them both, these two must either stand together or die alone.

How can one not be struck by the permanence of the experience revealed by the Martinist ritual? What is it that inhabits the Martinist temples that can be found neither in Freemasonry nor in the Order of the Elus Coëns? Is it not the dimension of the Heart, specific to this path that Papus was the first to describe as the Way of the Heart? Rémi Boyer suggests looking into the symbols specific to Martinism that characterize this heart axis. According to him, they illustrate how the ritual conveys a powerful sense of the freedom of our original nature. The Martinist orders constitute a living and influential movement carrying the principles and symbols of Illuminism. It is this expression of the complex and rich current called "Martinism" that the author invites you to traverse, in an extraordinary manner, in order to identify the way in which it can convey a path of awakening.

I wanted to change my life so I joined the military during a time when gays were not welcomed. While joining the military brought me out of a challenging situation, it was the beginning of a difficult journey. A journey I was able to navigate, but so many others were not so fortunate. Serving with Honor: Under a Cloak of Silence depicts the life of Dr. Lorenzo McFarland, along with three close friends, who served before and during the time of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT). This book answers that most interesting question of what it was like for gays in the military under DADT. In our own words we bare our souls and answer some of the tough questions not asked or answered before now. Questions like: Why join in the fi rst place? What was basic training like? How did we protect our careers? Would we serve again? We talk about exhaustive efforts creating elaborate webs to protect our secret. This book also depicts our patriotism and commitment to the military mission and this great country. Despite DADT, we served with honor and found great success.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents the electrifying conclusion to her powerful Circle Trilogy. Worlds have collided and centuries have elapsed as six people have brought their unique powers, their courage, and their hearts to a battle that could drown humanity in darkness… Her face, so pale when she’d removed her cloak, had bloomed when her hand had taken the sword. Her eyes, so heavy, so somber, had gone as brilliant as the blade. And had simply sliced through him, keen as a sword, when they’d met his… In the kingdom of Geall, the scholarly Moira has taken up the sword of her people. Now, as queen, she must prepare her subjects for the greatest battle they will ever fight—against an enemy more vicious than any they have seen. For Lilith, the most powerful vampire in the world, has followed the circle of six through time to Geall. Moira also has a personal score to settle. Vampires killed her mother—and now, she is ready to exact her revenge. But there is one vampire to whom she would trust her soul… Cian was changed by Lilith centuries ago. But now, he stands with the circle. Without hesitation, he will kill others of his kind—and has earned the respect of sorcerer, witch, warrior, and shape-shifter. But he wants more than respect from Moira—even though his desire for her makes him vulnerable. For how can a man with an eternity to live love a woman whose life is sure to end—if not by Lilith’s hand, then by the curse of time? “[Roberts] is one of the best writers in the romance world.”—The Best Reviews
