Lucy Baumgardner, working partner in a law firm in Philadelphia, works too hard. So says the senior partner, who just happens to be her father. When she´s forced to take a two week hiatus, she assumes two weeks of pedicures, massages, and poolside relaxation with a glass of wine won´t kill her. But things aren´t always what one expects. To her horror, city girl Lucy ends up stuck on a working ranch with no phones, cell service, or Wi-Fi. Her acute shock dictates she will not play cowgirl for two weeks. Making matters worse, Stace Levin, the very handsome owner/operator, does nothing to make things easy for her. Her days are filled with manual labor and one mishap after another, amusing Stace to no end. Surprisingly, he finds her not only amusing, but smart, stubborn, and very beautiful. Knowing it´s for only two weeks, Lucy slowly succumbs to the ranch lifestyle. Every day something happens to change her mind about the good looking cowboy, Stace. One day he´s a pompous ass, and the next, well...those inviting arms, and his generous warm lips and mouth can sure as hell change one´s mind about the guy. 1. Language: English.

´Such a brilliant idea! Drilling down into Victoria´s diaries Worsley gives us Victoria in all her infinite variety - queen and mother, matriarch and minx...I loved it.´ Daisy Goodwin, author, and creator of ITV´s Victoria ´The glory of this book is in the details, and the specific moments, that Worsley chooses to single out for mention, and in her cheerful voice as she leads us by the hand to the next window of Victoria´s life calendar.´ The Times Who was Queen Victoria? A little old lady, potato-like in appearance, dressed in everlasting black? Or a passionate young princess, a romantic heroine with a love of dancing? There is also a third Victoria - a woman who was also a remarkably successful queen, one who invented a new role for the monarchy. She found a way of being a respected sovereign in an age when people were deeply uncomfortable with having a woman on the throne. As well as a queen, Victoria was a daughter, a wife, a mother and a widow, and at each of these steps along life´s journey she was expected to conform to what society demanded of a woman. On the face of it, she was deeply conservative. But if you look at her actions rather than her words, she was in fact tearing up the rule book for how to be female. By looking at the detail of twenty-four days of her life, through diaries, letters and more, we can see Victoria up close and personal. Examining her face-to-face, as she lived hour to hour, allows us to see, and to celebrate, the contradictions at the heart of British history´s most recognisable woman.
Lucy Merritt has always defined herself by her body, whether dancing in a small avant-garde company or posing for art. But she has always felt as if something is wrong with her, as if something is missing. She has never been in love. Suddenly, in the darkness of the theater wings, a strangely affecting man enters her life. Matthew Norris, rich, handsome patron of the dance company, has decided that he wants Lucy for his own. He makes her an offer that both frightens and compels her, and they soon begin an affair characterized by only two requirements, beauty and truth. But how truthful are Matthew and Lucy? How much of Matthew´s strenuous brand of love can Lucy endure? And how long can their rigid Dom/sub relationship stay frozen in time, never growing, never moving forward?
