In recent years, dating and romantic partners have been recognized as important peer relations within adolescence and research in this area is just emerging. Peer groups and peer pressure are more well established areas of research into adolescence, with recent studies focusing on peer groups and anti-social behaviour. The book will be the first in a series of three that examines the latest research in key areas of developmental psychology, edited by Rutger Engels and Hakan Stattin. This volume will present four areas of peer research: the ‘deviancy training’ mechanism of peer influence; behavioural genetic analytical techniques in understanding peer selection; romantic partners as peer relationships; and in-school and out-of-school peers studies.

NEVER TOO LATE Collection 2 contains Books 5-7 of the Never Too Late Series under one cover. These laugh out loud stories will convince you that it really is never too late to find romance and love. DATING A SILVER FOX (Book 5) Lydia McCarthy doesn't want any man in her life, much less an incorrigible old flirt like Morrison Fox. Widowed since her forties, being single suits her just fine. She truly can't see any sane reason to risk her peaceful existence for someone who says he wants to make wine out of her one minute and then embarrasses her the next. Does it matter at her age that Morrie might be her last chance to find true love? DATING A COUGAR II (Book 6) Firefighter and eco entrepreneur Walter Graham II is tired of unhappily dating. He wants to date Jane Fox who can turn on his body and keep up with his brain. Unfortunately, the sexy older woman is using her formidable logic to prove any relationship between them is a bad idea. But once he gets his reluctant cougar into bed, Walter intends to give Jane’s amazing mind something more important to focus on than their age difference. DATING A PRO (Book 7 ) Her tendency to buck convention as much as Harrison did definitely made Doris worthy of a tumble. She wasn’t his first older woman so the decade difference in their ages didn’t bother him a bit. After all, it wasn’t like he was going to marry the woman. All he wanted was to share her lonely divorcee bed and maybe stir things up at the club with a few mix-gender golf games. He and Doris would both have some fun. The last thing Harrison expected was to find himself falling for the most inappropriate female he’d ever met.
"There is something at work in my soul which I do not understand..." Mary Shelley: literary queen of the Romantic era, deeply influenced by the Gothic tradition, and arguably the matriarch of the Science Fiction genre.
