Summary: He'd saved her life. Now it was payback time. Newbie at the famous Redstone Incorporated she might be. But Liana Kiley knew an innocent man when she saw one. Especially when he was the lawman who'd once saved her life, then captured her heart. Detective Logan Beck would do anything to keep Liana away from the corruption charges that dirtied his record and now endangered his life.

Fear and Temptation
  • Author : Terry Goldie
  • Publisher : McGill-Queen\'s Press - MQUP
  • Release Date : 1993

  • Pages : 271
  • ISBN Code: 9780773511026

Summary: Goldie skillfully reveals the ambivalence of white writers to indigenous culture through an examination of the stereotyping involved in the creation of the image of the "Other." The treacherous "redskin" and the "Indian maiden," embodiments of violence and sex, also evoke emotional signs of fear and temptation, of white repulsion from and attraction to the indigene and the land. Goldie suggests that white culture, deeply attracted to the impossible idea of becoming indigenous, either rejects native land claims and denies recognition of the original indigenes, or incorporates these claims into white assertions of native status. After comparing the works of Canadian author Rudy Wiebe and Australian author Patrick White, Goldie concludes by linking the results of his literary analysis to wider cultural concerns, particularly land rights. He shows that literary views of natives, both positive and negative, emphasize the same charac-teristics and he suggests that escape from this limited vision may open the door to solving the problems of native sovereignty.

Summary: In Allen's account of the Christian life, temptation offers us a doorway into the mystery of God. Far from trying to avoid the temptations of our daily lives, we need to recognize them as an essential part of our journey into the kingdom of God. Here our model is the three temptations Jesus faced in the wilderness: the temptations of material goods, security, and prestige. To face the reality of these temptations, even though we cannot overcome them, is to enter upon the spiritual life.

If she succeeds, he'll allow her back to New York. Temperance -- smart, passionate, as stubborn as her stepfather -- is determined at any cost to win her return passage. But she has taken on far more than she expected. James McCairn, Laird of Clan McCairn, is no cultured gentleman but a strapping, rough-mannered farmer, rude and brusque.

The Temptation of Paul Hindemith
  • Author : Siglind Bruhn
  • Publisher : Pendragon Press
  • Release Date : 1998
  • Category: Music
  • Pages : 419
  • ISBN Code: 9781576470138

Summary: This ground-breaking interdisciplinary study of Paul Hindemith's important opera Mathis der Maler draws together the three major sources that inspired the composition. Siglind Bruhn shows that only a recognition of the significant parallel in the lives of the composer, the Renaissance painter Grünewald on whom the operatic Mathis is modeled, and the main character depicted in Grünewald's masterpiece, Saint Antony, will open the doors to a full understanding of the composer's musical testimony. Bruhn begins by exploring the significance of the historical Antony within the spiritual and artistic traditions. Based on the interpretations of art historians and theologians, she then presents a fascinating reading of Grünewald's Isenheim Altarpiece and its singular importance for the opera. Turning to the opera itself, she examines the libretto as a symbolic representation of the dilemma in the lives of Grünewald and Hindemith and, finally and prominently, she interprets the music against the background of the spiritual plight that drives the plot.

Psychotic Temptation

  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2013-02-11
  • Category: Psychology
  • Pages : 170
  • ISBN Code: 1136157123

Summary: How can we understand the pull towards that which we fear: psychosis? In this thought provoking book, Abensour proposes the idea of a temptation towards psychosis rather than a regression, as a response to the hatred or denial of the subject’s origins. She shares her reflections on her psychoanalytic work with psychotic patients focusing on their struggle to achieve a coherent sense of a self that can inhabit a shared world. Abensour locates this struggle within the universal human struggle to achieve a balance between what we can and cannot allow ourselves to know about the reality of death and of our insignificance in the world.

Raphael has already pledged his heart to another woman. Peaches has been praying for a perfect family for a long time.

Longing, Weakness and Temptation
  • Author : Irena Avsenik Nabergoj,Jason Blake
  • Publisher : Cambridge Scholars Publishing
  • Release Date : 2009-01-14
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 305
  • ISBN Code: 1443804282

Summary: The themes of longing, weakness and temptation are relevant to every human and are interwoven with all fundamental ideals and values of the created, rational being. Temptation is all the more dramatic, the broader the perspective of recognition, the power of human longing and the sense of the difference between good and evil. This book is a summary of a study which compares and contrasts Slovenian and European literary works created under the influence of biblical source texts (Adam and Eve, Joseph from Egypt, Samson and Dalilah, etc.) and the works of other known and unknown origins (Homer’s Iliad, Goethe’s Faust, various versions of the myth of the Fair Vida, etc.). The ascribing of a text to a genre provides the interpreter of the text with a key intertextual framework and with a system of references to other books, other texts, other literary statements. The intertextual approach is obviously appropriate to the study of contents, symbols and forms of literary works. It shows how the source text continues to speak through the new work and how the new work forces new meanings from the source text. Later writers use important themes with a historical sense, when aiming toward a better understanding of authenticity of human existence.

Summary: In this excerpt from his acclaimed book Taming The Lion, highly successful trader, investor and former hedge fund manager, Richard Farleigh, reveals some of the secret investment strategies that he developed to succeed in the markets: "I believe that really good investors can avoid temptation. They have the discipline to know when there are no genuine opportunities and to not take excessive risks. In these situations, it may be useful to keep an eye on a variety of markets and to see if any price trends develop. These may signal when something is happening which is worth investigating. In these quiet times, be careful because even just wealth preservation is not simple because of taxes and inflation. Sophisticated retail products may appear good on the surface, but require close scrutiny. With a passive portfolio, management and brokerage fees should be kept to a minimum." Praise for Farleigh's acclaimed book, Taming the Lion: "Anyone who was able to retire at the age of 34, move to Monte Carlo and become a private investor must have made some smart investment decisions. Richard Farleigh did just that and he's sharing his secrets in this book." Money Magazine "Taming the Lion is a book about profiting from big themes. From humble beginnings in Australia, Farleigh made a fortune following powerful trends, the most effective and least stressful route to investment success. He knows how to write too." Telegraph "Overall I feel there is so much information in this book, it is probably one I will keep re-reading as I make investment decisions. I especially like the way it has reminded me that there are other asset classes to invest in other than shares and property and yet the same strategies are applicable." Investors Voice
