In Isabella Bradford’s enthralling new trilogy, three noble brothers—London’s most scandalous rakes—are about to do the unthinkable: settle down. Harry Fitzroy, Earl of Hargreave, is the first to meet his match and lose his heart . . . to a lady who’s not all what he expected. As the eldest son of the Duke of Breconridge, Harry Fitzroy is duty-bound to marry—and marry well. Giving up his rakish ways for the pleasures of a bride’s bed becomes a delightful prospect when Harry chooses beautiful Lady Julia Wetherby, the catch of the season. But a fall from his horse puts a serious crimp in his plans. Abandoned by Julia before he can propose, the unlucky bachelor finds himself trapped in the country in the care of Julia’s younger sister. Harry has never met a woman like Lady Augusta. Utterly without artifice, Gus is clever and capable, and seems to care not a fig for society. After a taboo kiss awakens passion that takes them both by surprise, Harry realizes he’d almost given his heart to the wrong sister. While London tongues wag, he’ll use his most seductive powers of persuasion to convince the reluctant Gus that she belongs with him—as his equal, his love, his wife. Praise for A Wicked Pursuit “The appealing characters, the emotional growth of the hero and the lively dialogue turn what could have been a predictable tale into a delightful non-stop read. This is a fine start to a new trilogy.”—RT Book Reviews “This story is every bit as delightful as those by my favorite Regency authors: Lisa Kleypas, Sabrina Jeffries, Julia Quinn. . . . I will definitely be looking for the other books in the series!”—Susana’s Parlour “A bewitching tale of a most accidental match.”—Shelf Awareness “Isabella Bradford’s experience shows with her charming, witty tale. . . . Wonderfully crafted, the next installments are sure to please as this one most decidedly did.”—Literarily Illumined “Bradford pulls no punches, which makes the story all the richer. . . . Period details create a believable world that fully immerses the reader.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers “I loved seeing the quality of the story come through. . . . Overall a hypnotic love tale to overwhelm, excite, and endear you. A rare treasure!”—Addicted to Romance “An awesome start to a new series and I can’t wait for the rest of it to come out. . . . I will definitely be going back and reading her Wylder Sisters series.”—Historical Romance Lover

A rare story without a hero depicts the unsaid desires of the human heart and the price he is willing to pay to fulfill them. Rooted in the current Indian sociopolitical bedlam, the book tells a tale of the inadequate education system, the unscrupulous political machinery, and chasm between aspirations of the unprepared youth and reality. The lure of boundless power and easy money corrupts even the most conscientious of men; when the youth of the nation tries to reign in the disloyal horse of anarchy, blood ensues.

Over twenty-five years in the making, this much-anticipated commentary promises to be the standard study of Proverbs for years to come. Written by eminent Old Testament scholar Bruce Waltke, this two-volume commentary is unquestionably the most comprehensive work on Proverbs available. Grounded in the new literary criticism that has so strengthened biblical interpretation of late, Waltke's commentary on Proverbs demonstrates the profound, ongoing relevance of this Old Testament book for Christian faith and life. A thorough introduction addresses such issues as text and versions, structure, authorship, and theology. The detailed commentary itself explains and elucidates Proverbs as "theological literature." Waltke's highly readable style -- evident even in his original translation of the Hebrew text -- makes his scholarly work accessible to teachers, pastors, Bible students, and general readers alike.

Imatation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Imatation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

How many have perished by an unlawful desire for pleasure, by an inordinate love of riches, by a wicked pursuit of honors! Long thou for naught, My Child, which may entangle thee in its toils, and afterwards hurl thee into the abyss.

THE most ancient special devotion of Christians is doubtless that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Son of God. The holy Sacraments and the other objects of devotion did not yet exist, when the Blessed Virgin Mary found her delight in worshiping the most Sweet Heart of her Jesus; already did Holy Joseph clasp that Heart to his bosom; even then were the Shepherds and the Magi, Simeon and Anna, the Apostles and the Disciples attracted to It and by It: they longed to show to It the affection and love of their hearts. But after Jesus had called upon all men to learn, “that He is meek and humble of Heart;” after He had drawn from the treasury of His Heart that best of all gifts, the Sacrament of the Most Blessed Eucharist; lastly, after He had willed that, upon the Cross, His Heart should be opened, and continue open, as a place of refuge for all; then was devotion to His Divine Heart wonderfully increased.

Would a man in his right mind chase a wicked woman who had abandoned him and their small son? Probably not. Not unless he was profoundly committed to being a man of integrity who determined to keep his word no matter what. Persistent Pursuit is the story of such a man. But it is more than that. There is a cosmic reality revealed in this book. Some might call it karma. Others would write it off as pure coincidence. Of course, a work of fi ction refl ects the world view of the author. The reader may disagree with that perspective. The question still waits for an answer. Does God really pursue the persons He created to prod them into a life that carries out His purpose?

For two decades, Davis Phinney was one of America’s most successful cyclists. He won two stages at the Tour de France and an Olympic medal. But after years of feeling off, he was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s. The body that had been his ally was now something else: a prison. The Happiness of Pursuit is the story of how Davis sought to overcome his Parkinson’s by reaching back to what had made him so successful on the bike and adjusting his perspective on what counted as a win. The news of his diagnosis began a dark period for this vibrant athlete, but there was also light. His son Taylor’s own bike-racing career was taking off. Determined to beat the Body Snatcher, Davis underwent a procedure called deep brain stimulation. Although not cured, his symptoms abated enough for him to see Taylor compete in the Beijing Olympics. Davis Phinney had won another stage. But the joy, he discovered, was in the pursuit. With humor and grace, Phinney weaves the narrative of his battle with Parkinson’s with tales from his cycling career and from his son’s emerging career. The Happiness of Pursuit is a remarkable story of fathers and sons and bikes, of victories large and small.

In this finely written study of demonology and Christian spirituality in fourth- and fifth-century Egypt, David Brakke examines how the conception of the monk as a holy and virtuous being was shaped by the combative encounter with demons. Drawing on biographies of exceptional monks, collections of monastic sayings and stories, letters from ascetic teachers to their disciples, sermons, and community rules, Brakke crafts a compelling picture of the embattled religious celibate.
