What Tears Us Down

release date: Aug 17, 2021
What Tears Us Down
Rhett Senova could charm a woman out of her panties and in the next breath, thank her mother for dinner. Smooth doesn''t even begin to cover his moves. But the hottest playboy in Arrow Creek wasn''t always this way. He had dreams of a one-woman future, and the cry of his firstborn brought him to tears. He never thought his wife would cheat on him with her boss. Each day is a feud over the dream home he had built for his ex and learning to raise his young son without the jaded lens now coloring his world. Starting over in his thirties isn''t on his agenda. Not now that he''s raised impenetrable walls. His ex left the sour taste of infidelity in his mouth, and he''s not sure he can trust anyone new. That is until he meets a vision passing through town and nearly gets mauled by her she-demon dog. Her sassy wit makes other women seem inadequate, along with those luscious curves and burgundy curls. The fact she hides beneath her tough exterior that she might be in trouble sends up red flags he''d be smart not to ignore. Using his charm to win over the pit bull is the easy part. The question is whether he wants to win over the guarded redhead too.

A Daughter of No Nation

release date: Dec 01, 2015
A Daughter of No Nation
As soon as Sophie Hansa returned to our world, she is anxious to once again go back to Stormwrack. Unable to discuss the wondrous sights she has seen, and unable to tell anyone what happened to her in her time away, Sophie is in a holding pattern, focused entirely on her eventual chance to return. With the sudden arrival of Garland Parrish, Sophie is once again gone. This time, she has been called back to Stormwrack in order to spend time with her father, a Duelist-Adjudicator, who is an unrivaled combatant and fearsome negotiator. But is he driven by his commitment to seeing justice prevail, or is he a sociopath? Soon, she discovers something repellent about him that makes her reject him, and everything he is offering. Adrift again, she discovers that her time spent with her father is not without advantages, however, for Sophie has discovered there is nothing to stop her from setting up a forensic institute in Stormwrack, investigating cases that have been bogged down in the courts, sometimes for years. Her fresh look into a long-standing case between two of the islands turns up new information that could get her, and her friends, pulled into something bold and daring, which changes the entire way she approaches this strange new world. . . .

The Ugly Woman of Castello di Putti

release date: Apr 01, 2014
The Ugly Woman of Castello di Putti
Returning to the world of Stormwrack where she set the tor.com story "Among the Silvering Herd," A.M. Dellamonica offers a new story that takes us deeper into this fascinating world, the site of her new fantasy novel Child of a Hidden Sea. The Fleet, integral to the governing of a world that is mostly water sprinkled with a number of islands, must deal with a unique form of magic, Inscribing, which is so subtle that its effects can sometimes only be known in retrospect. When a ship of the fleet visits an island where scripping is common, the crew members of the sailing vessel Nightjar are at a disadvantage when faced with local matters of which they know little or nothing at all. Strangers on the shore, indeed, they may enjoy the local customs . . . but also may attract unwonted attention that could cost them more than embarrassment or money . . . The Castello di Putti has a suggestive sound to it, but don''t be deceived. This is a story of civil strife, of culture shock, and ultimately of the risks and rewards of naval duty. Filled with Dellamonica''s fresh, inventive worldbuilding and the joie de vivre of a society in flux, it shows a side of Stormwrack very different from what she presented in the previous tale. At the Publisher''s request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

International Investment Arbitration

release date: Aug 28, 2013
International Investment Arbitration
Arbitration is the most common mechanism for disputes'' settlement in developing countries. Following the move to free market economies, arbitration will play an increasingly fundamental role in order to protect foreign investors in the Middle East and North African Region (MENA). This book examines the pulse and dynamics of international investment arbitration and the new era of mediation in state contracts in the region. The author explores the harmonization of international arbitration and the sensitive issue of le Contrat Administratif in Middle East civil law countries. The volume also discusses the pivotal role of international organizations such as UNCTAD and ICSID in codifying fair and prompt mechanisms for dispute settlement. Using Latin American countries as a prime example of how international legislative instruments serve international investment law principles and comparing Latin American experiences where appropriate, the book demonstrates how lessons can be learned in respect of alternative dispute resolution, international commercial arbitration and investor-states arbitration. It provides suggestions and recommendations for the future and includes useful appendices detailing recent worldwide trends, regional and international instruments in the arbitration world.

Child of a Hidden Sea
One minute, twenty-four-year-old Sophie Hansa is in a San Francisco alley trying to save the life of the aunt she has never known. The next, she finds herself flung into the warm and salty waters of an unfamiliar world. Glowing moths fall to the waves around her, and the sleek bodies of unseen fish glide against her submerged ankles. The world is Stormwrack, a series of island nations with a variety of cultures and economies--and a language different from any Sophie has heard. Sophie doesn''t know it yet, but she has just stepped into the middle of a political firestorm, and a conspiracy that could destroy a world she has just discovered...her world, where everyone seems to know who she is, and where she is forbidden to stay. But Sophie is stubborn, and smart, and refuses to be cast adrift by people who don''t know her and yet wish her gone. With the help of a sister she has never known, and a ship captain who would rather she had never arrived, she must navigate the shoals of the highly charged politics of Stormwrack, and win the right to decide for herself whether she stays in this wondrous world...or is doomed to exile, in Child of a Hidden Sea by A.M. Dellamonica.

The Cage

The Cage
The eerie thing about Paige Adolpha wasn''t how she turned up right when I was reading about her in the paper. It wasn''t her fame as the star witness in the local werewolf trial. What brought on the gooseflesh, first time I saw her, was she''s the spitting image of her murdered identical twin.
