Le beau cow-boy semble décidé à la choyer pendant toute la durée de son séjour, et Nina doit avouer qu’après toutes ces années passées seule, une telle attention est un vrai baume sur son cœur meurtri. Même si elle ne peut s’empêcher de penser qu’Alex est trop parfait pour être réel, et qu’elle ne va pas tarder à découvrir ses véritables intentions... Son plus tendre secret Un pur moment de plaisir et de folie. Voilà ce qu’Amie a vécu entre les bras du sulfureux inconnu qu’elle a rencontré au cours d’une soirée de fête... et qu’elle était certaine de ne jamais revoir. Alors, quand elle apprend qu’il n’est autre que le nouveau P-DG de Diamonds in the Rough, l’entreprise où elle travaille, elle ne sait que penser. Côtoyer jour après jour cet homme aussi séduisant qu’arrogant risque d’être une véritable torture. Mais le pire reste encore à venir car, bientôt, Amie devra lui révéler son secret : elle est enceinte de lui.

Death of Arthur
Author: Elizabeth Moore Willingham
Publisher: Brepols Pub
The multi-volume project responds to long-standing lacunae in Old French text study and Arthurian scholarship, in that it aims to provide a linguistically and scribally authentic text of a single illustrated Arthurian manuscript; in this case, it is one that has never before been edited, collated, or translated. Since research on text, language, and manuscript may be impeded by editorial policies operative in older editions of medieval narratives and since viewing the manuscripts directly is often difficult or impossible, the editorial board set protocols for the Lancelot Prose of 229 editions that would address the need for authentic, accessible texts, packaged with ancillaries to address a variety of reading and experience levels. At the same time, the board wished to take into account the potential of electronic images to enhance scholarly work and teaching based on the editions. The idea of a strictly diplomatic edition was discarded in light of digital technologys ability to provide high-resolution images of an original that are useful for close private study and public viewing. Thus each edition provides a useful, portable, authentic reading of Old French Arthurian narrative that is supported externally by online electronic images and internally by a selection of wonderful illustrations and a variety of ancillary materials and essays developed through years of study and teaching based on Yale 229. The Mort begins with the return of Bohors from the quest of the Holy Grail and narrates the declining fortunes of King Arthur and his Round Table through the dissolution of the Table and the death of Arthur. The tale includes Morgains efforts to convince Arthur of Lancelot and Guineveres adultery, Lancelots battle to save Guinevere from burning at the stake, the dramatic discovery of Guinevere and Lancelot by Arthurs knights, the departure of Arthur from his kingdom to fight Lancelot, and Arthurs leaving his Kingdom, the keys to his treasury, and his Queen in the hands of the treacherous Mordret. In the closing folios, Arthur is mortally wounded by Mordret at the apocalyptic Battle of Salisbury Plain, and Lancelot returns to avenge Arthur against Mordrets two sons at the final Battle of Winchester. The book closes shortly after the death of Lancelot, with a rejection of the life of court and chivalry in favor of penance and spiritual fulfillment.
