Dating A Dragon (The Mating Game, #2): Georgette St. Clair
The Dragon Claims His Treasure (Starcrossed Dating Agency, #2): Georgette St. Clair
Plus-size Rebecca´s on a jaunt to another world. She had hopes of finding herself a nice, sweet shifter like her sister, but somehow she ended up being attracted to the big, fiery dragon - a dragon who isn´t looking for love. If only he didn´t have eyes that made her want to take her panties off and a body that sent her hormones into a coma, life would be a lot easier. Vikter Dragos is dying. His dragon couldn´t find a mate, and he´s at the end of his time. He´s fighting the attraction for a sassy, curvy human, but it´s near impossible to stay away from her. If only she´d been his mate, life would be so much easier. He´s losing control of his dragon and his emotions. With Becca around, his life just got more complicated. Becca´s in constant confusion over Vikter´s hot and cold attitude. One moment, he´s kissing her like the world´s going to end; and the next, he´s warning her not to get attached. Figuring out how to scale this dragon might take a lot more patience than she´s got. When competition arises and Vikter sees another wants Becca, he´ll face his feelings or risk losing her forever. Note: Hang on to your panties, folks! This book contains smokin´ hot sex (the fire-breathing kind), adult language (we like some freaky dirty talk), violence, and verbal smack downs. 1.

A young man is murdered for his prized pet fish. An Asian tycoon buys a single specimen for $150,000. Meanwhile, a pet detective chases smugglers through the streets of New York. Delving into an outlandish realm of obsession, paranoia, and criminality, The Dragon Behind the Glass tells the story of a fish like none other: a powerful predator dating to the age of the dinosaurs. Treasured as a status symbol believed to bring good luck, the Asian arowana is bred on high-security farms in Southeast Asia and sold by the hundreds of thousands each year. In the United States, however, it´s protected by the Endangered Species Act and illegal to bring into the country - though it remains the object of a thriving black market. From the South Bronx to Singapore, journalist Emily Voigt follows the trail of the fish, ultimately embarking on a years-long quest to find the arowana in the wild. With a captivating blend of personal reporting, history, and science, The Dragon Behind the Glass traces our modern fascination with aquarium fish back to the era of exploration when intrepid naturalists stood on the cutting edge of modern science, discovering new and wondrous species in jungles all over the world. 1.

Production and innovation activities are being re-distributed across the world. The BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are proving the major engine of global growth, being less impacted by the financial crisis than developed economies or able to recover more quickly. Asia in the Global ICT Innovation Network takes a close look at the information and communication technologies (ICTs) landscape, not only in two BRICS countries, India and China, but also in South Korea and Taiwan. The book documents the size of the ICT sector for each of the selected countries, and assesses their R&D expenditure and its place in the international innovation network. The selected countries play a major role in shifting patterns of international trade and global value chains. The countries offer different historical profiles, with reforms dating back from the nineties for Chindia and earlier policies for the dragons, with later reforms focusing on IT. The book accounts for their specificity, and emphasises the fact that the four countries have achieved impressive results in terms of economic growth. The ICT sector was a major contributor to this growth and led a pioneering role for other sectors. This title consists of three parts: ICT in emerging economies, covering China and India; the return of the dragons, covering South Korea and Taiwan; and Network knowledge and trade, covering regional networks of R&D centres, India as an S&T cooperation partner, Asian countries in the global production network, and Asia in the process of internationalisation of ICT and R&D. Provides a well-supported look at the ICT sector in Asia, an area where extant literature consists mostly in a scattering of articles in various and heterogeneous journals Focuses on innovation Speaks to a growing interest in the role of emerging countries in ICT innovation

World literature is often transposed onto screen and these new interpretations of literary works mostly change several features. This study investigates in a qualitative and quantitative analysis the changes which were made to the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf when it was transposed onto screen. After outlining the original poem and its most prominent topics and features (contents, structure, dating, religion, women and the myth of the hero), the same topics and features (plus others) are examined in the Beowulf films. Those are grouped in major, minor and marginal films and each group shows certain common features and tendencies. The major films with focus on contents and the most important characters constitute the central part of this survey. The study gives interesting results with regard to the changes of plot, characters, language and other features. It is, for instance, striking that several films concentrate on the first part of the story and omit the dragon fight completely, strengthen the role of women and consider heroism in a critical way.
