Melissa Mitchell is going to be alone at the holidays, at least until her new friend Terri Coleman takes pity and invites her to the family home in rural North Carolina for an old-fashioned family Christmas. It sounds wonderful, and to top it all off, Terri has a single and very eligible brother, Richmond police detective Joe Coleman. Then Terri drops her bomb shell: the Coleman family is old-fashioned in more ways that one, and Terri has recently fallen afoul of her brother, who took care of the situation in the time-honored way. Could it happen again? There are issues unresolved between Terri and her brother, and Terri feels she needs to warn Melissa that no-nonsense Joe just might resort to spanking if he thought the situation warranted it. And that's not all: Terri's other brother and his wife are in a domestic discipline relationship, and are very open about it. As irritated as Melissa is that Terri has dragged her into family drama, Melissa also has a secret of her own: she's been fascinated with tales of old-fashioned over-the-knee-discipline forever, and the idea that that could occur in real life seems too much to believe. At first, the holiday celebration couldn't be better. Melissa and Joe feel an instant attraction, fueled by the fact that Joe quickly figures out Melissa's interest in what had recently happened to Terri goes beyond mere concern for her friend. But But Melissa has another secret, a dark terrifying reality from her past. Just when she feels the most safe, through an innocent mistake, the secret is revealed endangering everyone in the family. And Joe will do anything to protect his family…. Publisher's note: "An Old-Fashioned Family" is a steamy romantic adventure featuring the discipline of adult women. It is intended for adults only.

Author: Michael DePaul
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
The contributions in this volume make an important effort to resurrect a rather old fashioned form of foundationalism. They defend the position that there are some beliefs that are justified, and are not themselves justified by any further beliefs. This epistemic foundationalism has been the subject of rigorous attack by a wide range of theorists in recent years, leading to the impression that foundationalism is a thing of the past. DePaul argues that it is precisely the volume and virulence of the assaults which points directly to the strength and coherence of the position.

Whether your Thanksgiving is more sweatpants on the couch or turkey with all the trimmings, everyone loves a good tradition. From competitive yearly football matches (hello, Monica and Ross) to family arguments (again, hello, Monica and Ross) to repeating movies - or books. Louisa May Alcott’s "An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving" is like a warming cup of cocoa for the soul. In this holiday treat we follow a family preparing for their own Thanksgiving. There is of course, drama, spirited arguments and narrowly missed arguments, but at the end of it all a spectacular turkey with all the trimmings is ready and waiting. A heartwarming treat to get you into the holiday spirit. Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) discovered writing at an early age, where she often thought up stories about villains, ghosts, or damsels in distress. Driven by economic misfortunes, she worked several jobs but later chose writing as her sole purpose. She was a devout feminist and did not marry throughout her life. Her most famous works include the novel "Little Women", its sequel "Little Men", as well as "Good Wives" and "An Old-Fashioned Girl". Her masterpiece "Little Women" was made into a highly successful 2019 movie starring Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet.
