A COWBOY ALWAYS GETS WHAT HE WANTS
Talk about a bad hair day. Louisiana beauty salon owner Charmaine LeDeux has a loan shark on her tail, and Raoul Lanier, the six-foot-three hunk of testosterone she thought she divorced, has just delivered a bombshell: They're still married!

It's hard enough for Raoul to play cowboy to a bunch of scrawny steer, let alone suffer the exquisite torture of living with the delectable Charmaine, who's declared herself a born-again virgin. What's a man crazy with desire to do?
With the moon shining over the bayou, this Cajun cowboy must sweet-talk his way into his wife's arms again...before she unties the knot for good!

René LeDeux's burned out by D.C. politics and only wants to build his cabin in peace. But if his wacky, matchmaking great-aunt has her way, Bayou Black's prodigal son will be hitched before the summer's over. And when Valerie "Ice" Breaux, René's high school crush turned nemesis, is abducted by René's activist friends, it starts to look like Tante Lulu just may get her wish.
Mon Dieu! It's bad enough being kidnapped, but did she have to land in the lap of the most irritating, sexiest hunk she's ever laid her eyes on? Now Val's stranded in René's remote cabin, besieged by irrepressible LeDeux relations, not to mention a dingbat duo out to save the swamp.
It's a heat wave, guar-an-teed! Val vows she'll give her heart to the Cajun bad boy when alligators fly. René swears to get the girl who got away. It's never been steamier in the bayou than with two people this red-hot with desire...and more than ready for love.
Non ! Sandra n'acceptera plus d'engagement après ce défilé à La Nouvelle-Orléans. Sa décision est irrévocable et toutes les protestations de son agent n'y changeront rien. Elle a beau être au sommet de sa carrière de top model, ce métier lui est devenu insupportable !

Psychologist Joy Nelson thinks things are bad when she finds herself training in the modern-day female Navy SEALs
program. But then her life takes a turn for the worse. Somehow she’s been thrust back in time to the cold
Norselands, being auctioned off as a thrall, or slave--a gift for a Viking warlord, who would be a perfect candidate

The advances of modern biomedicine have provided a sophisticated but somewhat mechanistic approach to health. It is a good approach to emergencies, but has fallen down in the maintaining and creating health. Dazzled by the progress of science, we have lost touch with the simple remedies and body wisdom that were once a part of every household. This Briefing suggests that Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) has a central part to play in the future of health care.
This book highlights the importance of security in the design, development and deployment of systems based on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), together referred to as SDNFV. Presenting a comprehensive guide to the application of security mechanisms in the context of SDNFV, the content spans fundamental theory, practical solutions, and potential applications in future networks.Topics and features: introduces the key security challenges of SDN, NFV and Cloud Computing, providing a detailed tutorial on NFV security; discusses the issue of trust in SDN/NFV environments, covering roots of trust services, and proposing a technique to evaluate trust by exploiting remote attestation; reviews a range of specific SDNFV security solutions, including a DDoS detection and remediation framework, and a security policy transition framework for SDN; describes the implementation of a virtual home gateway, and a project that combines dynamic security monitoring with big-data analytics to detect network-wide threats; examines the security implications of SDNFV in evolving and future networks, from network-based threats to Industry 4.0 machines, to the security requirements for 5G; investigates security in the Observe, Orient, Decide and Act (OODA) paradigm, and proposes a monitoring solution for a Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture; includes review questions in each chapter, to test the reader's understanding of each of the key concepts described.This informative and practical volume is an essential resource for researchers interested in the potential of SDNFV systems to address a broad range of network security challenges. The work will also be of great benefit to practitioners wishing to design secure next-generation communication networks, or to develop new security-related mechanisms for SDNFV systems.
