Earth girls might be popular...but they're definitely not easy. Sergeant Cat Moore has a little problem. Well, actually a big problem... When her base is attacked and boarded by an alien war group, she finds herself in the sights of their leader, Tarrick, a Latharian war-commander. Their captors might be ripped, hot warriors looking for that one special woman, but the women of Sentinel Five have this little thing against being slaves. Even if their leader is well on his way to stealing Cat's heart as well as her body... Because her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off. Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself… Like the fact he’s a freaking alien prince… The strong, not so silent, and ruthless type, Tarrick's duty as a war commander means little time for himself. With no women of their own, a base full of human women is a bounty he can't ignore. Nor can he ignore the little human whose voice called out to him across the galaxy, a woman he'll stop at nothing to make his own. Then a new player enters the arena. A dangerous rival challenges the K'Vass claim on Terran space and all it's women. Tarrick K'Vass can't afford to let any of the earth women be captured, especially not his little human, Cat. When she’s is taken, he'll do anything to rescue her. Up to and including starting an intergalactic war...

Fast-talking, and as hard-as-nails as any sailor, she navigates the most dangerous solar roads in the universe. Times are tough, but she gets the job done. Always. The last thing she needs is a delay, but when she runs across a stranded sailor she has no choice. The law of the roads demands she rescue him… even if he is the last man in the universe she ever wanted to see again. The husband she fell for, but ran from before their wedding night… She’s the one who got away. Now she’s uncharted territory… Kelwin Sayeed is a super-soldier without a war and with money to burn. His latest and most ambitious project, the solar flyer Artemis, was supposed to prove him worthy of the famously reclusive Solar Sailors, but instead a catastrophic computer failure has him at the mercy of the most hazardous road of all; Icaria. No sailor would leave another to certain death though, and he’s rescued by another ship. He expected a sailor born and bred to the roads, with skin wizened like beaten gold.

Once he has her in his bed, he’ll spend an eternity figuring out what makes her tick.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
The papers in this volume derive from the 31st Spring Symposium of Byzantine Studies, held for the Society for the Promotion of Byzantine Studies at the University of Sussex, Brighton, in March 1997. The papers in this volume, by a group of international scholars, explore the many different aspects of Byzantine perceptions towards their own humanity and the frailties of that humanity. Using evidence from archaeology, art history, and literary texts ranging from sermons to legal documents, these chapters reveal writings about love, both secular and religious; images of sexuality and sensuality; the law; and Byzantine attitudes to bodies and the senses.

Es darf nicht in die falschen Hände fallen. Und der unheimliche Skagra hat definitiv die falschen Hände. Er will das Buch. Er will das Geheimnis von Shada lüften. Und er will den Verstand des Doktors ... Douglas Adams starb im Mai 2001. Er ist der Autor von Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis. Gareth Roberts hat neun Doctor-Who-Romane geschrieben.
