When Lady Venetia Campbell is kidnapped at pistol point by her fatherâ€™s sworn enemy, Sir Lachlan Ross, she discovers the wickedly sexy Scot is even more intoxicating than she remembers . . . and much more dangerous.

Emma Brown is a happy-go-lucky child, content to work hard at school, and to play hopscotch with her friends on the pavement outside her house in the run-down Nechells area of Birmingham. As long as everything is alright at home with her Ma and Pa, her little sister Joyce and brother Sid, then life is good. But after Em's mother Cynthia has her baby she just doesn't seem to be able to cope. Her life-long friend and neighbour Dot helps as much as she can, but she has children of her own, and no man to hand; Cynthia's husband Bob, too, does his best, but begins to feel that he's losing the wife he has loved so much; and little Em just can't find enough hours in the day to do all the washing and cleaning. Soon, it seems, the only thing is for Cynthia to go and stay across the city with her tyrannical older sister. With Cynthia away, life only gets harder for Em. Her best friend Kate ostracises her, leaving only poor, stinky Molly Fox at her side, and when the Board Man comes to call, wanting to know why she's not at school, things are really bad. When Bob stays out later and later in the evenings, always the worse for wear, and spending too much time with a local very merry widow, Em decides to travel across Birmingham to fetch her mother home, but the mother she discovers is a far cry from the proud, upright and loving figure she has known so well...
The name we are given by our parents has a big impact on us. Throughout our life, from the playground to the office, other people will make instinctive and subconscious assumptions about who we are just from our name. We'll hear it spoken in anger and joy, it'll be shortened, lengthened and parodied, it will be loved and loathed. Finding a name that you like, that suits your child and that your child will be happy to carry with them for the rest of their life is not easy. The possibilities seem endless. So where do you start? Brilliant Baby Names has all the answers and will help you to take the worry out of getting your baby's name just right.
More than just an alphabetical list of popular names, Brilliant Baby Names is the ultimate guide to naming your baby. Whether you're seeking advice about how to choose a name, looking for inspiration in finding the perfect name or searching for help in handling disagreements or family expectations, this book can help. As you'd expect, the book is packed with 1000s of names to review. Each is listed with details on what they mean and their origin.
The lists are split into boys', girls' and neutral names to make the selection process as simple as possible. You'll re-discover traditional names that have been popular in the past; cool names where virtually anything goes; popular names that everyone's using; unusual names that perhaps you'd rather avoid; celebrity names that are on everyone's lips and famous names that the whole world will know. If you need more help or are looking for a namesake, you'll find extra inspiration in the lists of the 100 greatest names from cinema, literature, entertainment, sport and many more. As well as the name lists though, you'll find everything you need to keep in mind, and avoid, when considering a name for your child.
There's also detailed information on why choosing the right name is so important and how it may affect your child's opportunities in life. There's essential help and advice in handling and resolving any disagreements with your partner and managing family expectations. You'll find out what the law requires: when and how to register your child's name, how your legal name is used and what to do if you wish to change your child's name later.
So, when it comes to naming your baby, Brilliant Baby Names is the only book you'll ever need.
An isolated stone cottage with no mains water, invaded by mice, rats and swarms of insects, a place where giant snowdrifts sever the electricity supply and all connections with the outside world... This is what Lawrence and Christine Dyer face when they start a new life up in the bleak, rocky hills of the English Peak District. Wild creatures, eccentric hill folk, uncooperative farm animals and foaling Shetland ponies all have a part to play in this relating of triumphs and disasters -- all set against the incredibly beautiful backdrop of the hills and moors with their bold crags of dark millstone grit, their secret valleys of moss-carpeted forests and clear brooks sheltering shoals of trout.
