As far as Penelope Brown is concerned, marrying Lord Nevinstoke is the same thing as signing a business contract. Nevinstoke needs Penelope's substantial dowry to repair his family's estate, and, in return, Penelope will gain the titled husband her parents have always wished for her. Of course, before Penelope marries Nev, she insists he give up wine, women, and song-­well, two out of three-­and become a respectable man. The newlyweds head off to Nev 's estate with high hopes, but things take a disastrous turn once they arrive and discover the troubles that await them. When they finally begin to trust each other, they not only find inventive solutions to their problems but also quickly realize that they want more from their marriage than a business partnership. Rich in subtle characterization, deftly seasoned with danger, and tempered with just the right dash of tart wit and historical grit, Lerner's historical romance is to be savored.

*Grand Passion…or epic disaster? *Lord Nevinstoke revels in acting the young wastrel, until his father is killed in a drunken duel. Never one to do anything halfway, Nev throws off his wild ways to shoulder a mountain of responsibility—and debt—vowing to marry a rich girl and act the respectable lord of the manor. Manufacturing heiress Penelope Brown seems the perfect choice for a wife. She’s pretty, proper, and looking for a husband. Determined to rise above her common birth, Penelope prides herself on her impeccable behavior and good sense. Grand Passion? Vulgar and melodramatic. Yes, agreeing to marry Nev was a rare moment of impulse, yet she’s sure they can build a good marriage based on companionship and mutual esteem. But when they arrive at the manor, they’re overwhelmed with half-­starved tenants, a menacing neighbor, and the family propensity for scandal. As the situation deteriorates, the newlyweds have nowhere to turn but to each other. To Penelope’s surprise, she . . .

Penny Birch is back, and naughty as ever. In for a Penny continues the story of her outrageous sex life and also the equally rude behaviour of her friends. From stories of old-­fashioned spankings, through strip-­wrestling in baked beans, to a girl with unusual breasts, it's all there. Each scene is described in loving detail, with no holding back and a level of realism that comes from a great deal of practical experience.

When Lillian Summer Fairview's husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot mess. While Lil was busy being a proper Southern lady, Harlan squandered dang near the whole family fortune on lottery tickets.

But when Maggie discovers that Lil's restitution is ten times the amount she "borrowed" from the federal government, she's convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else's crime. And these gals will use every trick in their little-­old-­lady bags to prove it.

The gripping story of the twentieth century’s greatest struggle in the modest voice of a Canadian teenager in the RAF. In 1940, nineteen-­year-­old Howard Hewer dreamed of being the next Billy Bishop, of piloting Spitfires or Hurricanes over Europe. His dream was shattered when he was selected instead for a career as a wireless operator in Bomber Command. But he got all the adventure he signed on for. Hewer and his crews of 218 and 148 Squadrons flew important night operations over Germany and North Africa, dropping their deadly payloads and dodging enemy flak. And he was not always much safer on the ground. He survived the Blitz in London, a U-­boat attack in the South Atlantic, a fire-­fight with Italian troops near el-­Alamien, as well as chaste love affairs, fistfights, and beers with Boer rebels. Self-­deprecating, bittersweet, and alive to both the horrors of war and the friendships and courage of the men and women who fight it, is the unforgettable story of a young Canadian’s . . .

The analysis in this paper suggests that import and export volume elasticities are markedly lower in oil-­exporting Middle East and Central Asian countries than in non-­oil countries in the region. A key implication of this finding is that a real appreciation of the exchange rate in oil-­exporting countries would achieve little in terms of expenditure switching: an appreciation does not boost imports and non-­oil exports constitute only a small share of GDP and total trade in these countries. Therefore, while a real appreciation lowers the current account surplus of oil-­exporting countries through valuation effects, the contribution to lowering global imbalances may be more limited.

This mesmerising collection from World Fantasy Award-­winner James P. Blaylock offers seven brilliant excursions into one of the most idiosyncratic imaginations of our time. Highlighted by the acclaimed novella, "The Trismegistus Club" - a brilliant riff on the antiquarian ghost story - In for a Penny goes from strength to strength, taking us deep into the heart of a quirky, deeply engaging fictional world that no one but Blaylock could have created. Other high points include "Home Before Dark,­" which chronicles one man's first few hours in the afterlife. Its thematic companion, "Small Houses,­" recounts an aging widower's last few hours on earth. Both stories constitute deeply felt, lovingly detailed farewells to the things and places of this world. In "The other Side,­" a minor precognitive episode leads the hero to an obsessive fascination with the hidden mysteries of the universe. In "His Own Back Yard,­" a story worthy of the great Jack Finney, a middle-­aged man finds himself . . .
