wo ordinary people. One extraordinary love, mixed with murder, legal corruption and espionage. Will doing the right thing cost them everything? Cowboy in Her Courtroom (Book 1, previously published as Incredulity) A romantic cowboy. A sunset kiss. Everything is perfect until he's charged with murder. Callie Fletcher just wanted to sit on the terrace of her favorite hot spot and watch the sunset over the Texas Hill Country. A table for one, a glass of pinot and the best view in Austin. When Dominic Jaxson, a gorgeous, wealthy cowboy, charms her into sharing the view, the sunset gets even more magical. Months of sunsets later, their affection blooms into love, with dreams of a future together. Never does Callie imagine that this caring and tender man might hide a secret or that he might be a criminal. But then he walks through the doors of her courtroom, charged with a crime. Murder. As a court reporter, Callie knows her way around the legal system, and she's certain Dominic isn't guilty. But can she uncover the clues to prove his innocence, or have she and her handsome cowboy shared their last Texas sunset? Renegade Romance (Book 2) A woman whose life is crumbling with every tick of the clock. A federal judge accused of corruption. A rookie undercover FBI agent sent to find the truth. Mercedes had found the perfect job and an apartment overlooking the San Juan beaches. No one would ever know the secrets she was required to keep in order to hold onto this perfect life. When she discovers just how little control she has and wants out, she decides she will turn the tables. But how? An ocean and thousands of miles away, the budding romance between Callie Fletcher, a Texas court reporter, and her very romantic cowboy, Dominic, continues to flourish. Love and life couldn't get any better for the two of them. Until the call from an old FBI acquaintance. Callie has the perfect set of skills necessary to uncover the truth of crimes lodged by Mercedes against her boss, a federal district court judge. And when asked to serve her country in this unusual way, Callie accepts without hesitation. Not so fast, says Dominic. He isn't happy that the new love of his life is putting herself in extreme peril. Notwithstanding Dom's concerns, however, Callie feels that uncovering the truth outweighs any risk put in her path. The two agree to disagree. Sort of. Are these unspeakable allegations true? Will the romance between Callie and her cowboy survive? Will Callie? Hand in Hand (Book 3) A father desperate to find his daughter. A woman's forgotten past and a captor who's always watching. Time is running out. Emily knows she's being watched. Being locked away like a precious toy is all she knows, but when faded memories start to surface, she decides to take matters into her own hands and find the truth. Unfortunately, her husband tracks her every move... and she doesn't know what, or who, to trust. Enter Callie and Dom. After recovering from a close call with a human trafficking ring, they step back in to help a new friend find his abducted daughter. But even if they find Emily, she may not let them help. The search leads Callie and Dom to places they never expected — in both their mission and their romance. Can they work past the tension between them to bring Emily back home, or will distrust pull them apart?

This is the first monograph devoted to manuscripts illuminated by the mid-fifteenth-century artist known as the Wavrin Master, so-called after his chief patron, Jean de Wavrin, chronicler and councillor at the court of Philip the Good of Burgundy. Specializing in the production of pseudo-historical prose romances featuring the putative ancestors of actual Burgundian families, the artist was an attentive interpreter of these texts which were designed to commemorate the chivalric feats of past heroes and to foster their emulation by noble readers of the day. Integral to these heroes' deeds is the notion of justice, their worth being measured by their ability to remedy criminal acts such as adultery, murder, rape, and usurpation. In a corpus of 10 paper manuscripts containing the texts of 15 romances and over 650 watercolour miniatures, the stylised, expressive images of the Wavrin Master bring out with particular clarity the lessons in justice which these works offered their contemporary audience, many of whom, from the Burgundian dukes downwards, would have been responsible for upholding the law in their territories. Chapters are devoted to issues such as the nature of just war and how it is linked to good rulership; what forms of legal redress the heroines of these tales are able to obtain with or without the help of a male champion; and what responses are available in law to a spouse betrayed by an adulterous partner. The book will be of interest to scholars of medieval art, literature, legal and cultural history, and gender studies.

In a poststructuralist study of thirteenth-century French historical texts, Gabrielle Spiegel investigates the reasons for the rise of French vernacular prose historiography at this particular time. She argues that the vernacular prose histories that have until now been regarded as royalist were actually products of the aristocracy, reflecting its anxiety as it faced social and economic change and political threats from the monarchy.

When ancient human remains turn up at the site of a new state water project along the Oregon Coast, he’s sure the lost tribe is real. Before he can examine the bones, however, a pretty female lawyer gets an injunction to stop him. Nila Willopah sees ghosts.

But when one of the ghosts latches onto his soul, Nila must set aside her fears and suspicions and once again enter the world of spirit communication to protect him.

Many English-speaking readers of the Roman de la rose, the famous dream allegory of the thirteenth century, have come to rely on Charles Dahlberg's elegant and precise translation of the Old French text. His line-by-line rendering in contemporary English is available again, this time in a third edition with an updated critical apparatus. Readers at all levels can continue to deepen their understanding of this rich tale about the Lover and his quest--against the admonishments of Reason and the obstacles set by Jealousy and Resistance--to pluck the fair Rose in the Enchanted Garden. The original introduction by Dahlberg remains an excellent overview of the work, covering such topics as the iconographic significance of the imagery and the use of irony in developing the central theme of love. His new preface reviews selected scholarship through 1990, which examines, for example, the sources and influences of the work, the two authors, the nature of the allegorical narrative as a genre, the use of first person, and the poem's early reception. The new bibliographic material incorporates that of the earlier editions. The sixty-four miniature illustrations from thirteenth-and fifteenth-century manuscripts are retained, as are the notes keyed to the Langlois edition, on which the translation is based.
