LORD WEYBOURNS WEIHNACHTSWUNDER Wie warm und unendlich geborgen sie sich in seinen starken Armen fühlt! Tess schmiegt sich an ihren muskulösen Retter und genießt seine Nähe: Alexander Tempest, Viscount Weybourn, trägt sie durch die vereisten Straßen zum Arzt. Ein Zusammenstoß mit ihm hat ihr einen verstauchten Knöchel beschert. Doch zum Weihnachtfest beschert der adelige Herzensbrecher der schönen Bürgerlichen noch etwas anderes: eine Anstellung in seinem eleganten Stadthaus als Haushälterin - und verboten sinnliche Küsse unterm Mistelzweig! Die berauschend süß, aber im höchsten Maße unstandesgemäß sind ... LIEBESWUNDER MIT DEM EARL Hat er ihre Schreie gehört? Ein breitschultriger Fremder in eleganter Kleidung betritt die Hütte, in der Kate Schutz gefunden hat. Fast ohnmächtig ist sie vor Schmerzen, denn während draußen die Christnacht anbricht, kommt ihr Kind zur Welt! Doch Grant Rivers, Earl of Allundale, wird zu ihrem rettenden Engel. Er ist nicht nur Mediziner, sondern macht der ledigen Mutter auch einen Antrag, kaum dass sie ihr Weihnachtsbaby glücklich in den Armen hält. Kate sagt Ja - und schwört sich, dass Grant niemals erfahren wird, warum und vor wem sie in die Dezembernacht geflohen ist ...

When the married Isabella Robinson was introduced to the dashing Edward Lane at a party in 1850, she was utterly enchanted. He was 'fascinating', she told her diary, before chastising herself for being so susceptible to a man's charms. But a wish had taken hold of her, and she was to find it hard to shake...In one of the most notorious divorce cases of the nineteenth century, Isabella Robinson's scandalous secrets were exposed to the world. Kate Summerscale brings vividly to life a frustrated Victorian wife's longing for passion and learning, companionship and love, in a society clinging to rigid ideas about marriage and female sexuality.

Authors: Helen Deutsch
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
Type: BOOK - Published: 1996 - Publisher: Harvard University Press
By restoring the poet's image to view against the cultural background that branded it as monstrous, Deutsch recasts Pope's literary career, from his translations of Homer to his imitations of Horace, as itself a form of monstrous embodiment - a stamping of his own personal, disfigured image on fragments of the cultural past.

"In this sequel to the popular Cooking with Fernet Branca, Gerald Samper is back on his Tuscan hilltop and busily musing on the absurdities of modern life. His entertaining asides - on everything from publishing to penile implants, celebrity sportswomen to Australian media moguls - and his eccentric recipes form the comic heart of this literary romp. Marta, Gerald's nemesis in Cooking with Fernet Branca, is back, along with her penchant for the eponymous potent liquor and her talent for shattering Gerald's evening idylls. But she's not alone: Amazing Disgrace touts a cavalcade of memorable characters, including a foul-mouthed, one-armed yachtswoman, and sees Gerald jettisoned from his Tuscan hideaway into the trendy haunts of his native London."--BOOK JACKET.
