I am an escort, that's who I have chosen to be. Not because that's my dream, mind you. My dream was the fairytale with Prince Erik. But the kind of fire we had was too hot and burned out as quickly as it started. It was an explosion of passion and lust that didn't... that couldn't have lasted. So I did the only thing I could do. And that was to stuff my dream so far down I'd never be able to find it again. But dreams aren't easy to forget. And do you know what the cruelest thing of all is? When you have had the fairytale for a few short moments, and it is swept from beneath your feet. My fairytale has turned to ashes and now I live with my decisions... Decisions that I know will haunt me for the rest of my life.But at least I have secured my sister's and my future... that should be enough, right?Yet... it kills me, and every night I think about what could have been... what should have been... something beautiful between my prince and me. And then one day, Prince Erik shows up in my life again.I hardly dare to believe it, but deep something inside tells me that maybe...just maybe, my fairytale can come true.

Prince Herscherik (previously the 35-year-old Japanese woman Ryoko Hayakawa) continues to fight against the powerful corruption in his kingdom and the puppet-master minister Barbosse. Now that he’s 5, Herscherik earned his own room and office among the other princes, his new base of operations. On the HR front, he gains a new ally in addition to Kuro, the former-spy butler, in the form of a delinquent but more-than-capable knight from a well-respected family, Octavian. As Kuro and Octavian clash, Herscherik is left to keep them in check as they further their cause to save Gracis Kingdom and its people.
Essays on the Transition from Medieval to Modern Thought
Author: Hans Baron
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Hans Baron's Crisis of the Early Italian Renaissance is widely considered one of the most important works in Italian REnaissance studies. Princeton University Press published this seminal book in 1955. Now the Press makes available a two-volume collection of eighteen of Professor Baron's essays, most of them thoroughly revised, unpublished, or presented in English for the first time. Spanning the larger part of his career, they provide a continuation of, and complement to, the earlier book. The essays demonstrate that, contemporaneously with the revolution in art, modern humanistic thought developed in the city-state climate of early Renaissance Florence to a far greater extent than has generally been assumed. The publication fo these volumes is a major scholarly event: a reinforcement and amplification of the author's conception of civic Humanism. This book includes studies of medieval antecedents and special studies of Patrarch, Leonardo Bruni, and Leon Battista Alberti. It offers a thoroughly re-conceived profile of Machiabelli, drawn against the background of civic Humanism, as well as essays presenting evidence that French and English Humanism of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was closely tied to Italian civic thought of the fiteenth. The work culminates in a reassessment of Jacob Burckhardt's pioneering thought of the Renaissance. Hans Baron is Distinguished Research Fellow Emeritus, Newberry Library. Originally published in 1988. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Volume 2 of 2. 'The Great War and the disbandment of the regiment' is a substantial record of service in many theatres of the war, in which the regiment's battalions saw service from the war’s outbreak in 1914 - taking part in the first battle of the Aisne and the 'Race to the Sea' - through 1915 when it was in the Ypres Salient and also participated in the ill-fated Gallipoli expedition and in Macedonia. In 1916 io took part in the Battle of the Somme - but was also employed in suppressing the Irish repubican Easter Rising in Dublin. 1917 saw the regiment in action in Egypt and the Palestine campaign, as well as Canada’s famous capture of Vimy Ridge on the western front. The end of the year brought the gruelling battles of Passchendaele and Cambrai. In 1918 the regiment withstood the German Spring offensives, before taking part in the victorious allied advance which led to the armistice. Prior to its disbanding in 1922, the regiment was stationed in the occupied Rhineland, in India and was on peac-keeping duties in Silesia, disputed btweeen Germany and Poland. This is a meaty history, which will interest anyone curious about Canada’s colonial regiments, and their role in the Great War. Volume II has eight illustrations and fourteen maps. Both volumes come with an index.
