Just weeks after arriving in Genesis Valley, Bear shifter Garrett Hoffman finds himself in the middle of all sorts of trouble. Tasked to mine the mountains nearby, he and the crew he's been saddled with have all the chemistry of gunpowder. As Alpha of the Ridgebacks though, it's his job to ensure they get the job done, without incident. But just when he thinks things are starting to come together, the Mining Consortium saddles him with an overseer. A human overseer. A gorgeous, full-figured, no-nonsense female overseer. Who of course, his bear decides, is going to be his mate. Over the past year, Emma Labelle has become used to shifters hating her, despising her and generally wanting absolutely nothing to do with her because of her job. So when the tall, muscular and absolutely gorgeous Garrett starts to flirt with her, she has no idea what to do. Her job is to protect the human population from the wild and unpredictable nature of the shifters. If her bosses found out she was falling in love with one, both she and Garrett would find themselves in a world of trouble that neither of them needs. When things come to a head, will the pair be able to do their duties and complete the jobs assigned to them, or will their feelings for each other put everyone they know in danger?

Gabriel is a Stone Bear-one of the the elite shifters trained by the Lionshead Mining Consortium to protect their precious goods. He's given up almost everything to be the best at his job, including the chance to take a mate. But after meeting his boss's new assistant, he can't help but wonder about the possibilities. Gabriel can withstand just about anything a shifter can throw at him in a fight, but when it comes to this strong, gorgeous, and witty woman, he finds himself weak in the knees. Could she truly be the one? Caia Rowan is tougher than she seems. Hired straight out of school to go through training as a police negotiator, she's seen her fair share of the ugly side of society. So when she's offered a job in Genesis Valley, the harsh lifestyle and brutal nature of its inhabitants doesn't faze her. But the tall, utterly intoxicating, and surprisingly well-mannered bear shifter she's partnered with has the butterflies in her stomach doing circus acts. As the pair investigate a series of odd occurrences within the Valley, they find that they can't ignore the tension growing between them. But one wrong move could cost them not only their jobs, but their lives. The darkness invading Genesis Valley is more perverse than either of them suspected, and it will take the power of their bond to burn it away. Can they survive the journey, or will the brash actions of one doom the other?

Darren Shaw never asked to be put in charge. But when his Alpha is forced to leave for several days someone must be left to run the crew. The position isn't what he expected, and almost immediately he's forced into a delicate balance of being the leader the Jade Crew needs, and pursuing his own interests with the amazing woman who has just walked into his life. The last thing Kierra Valcke wants is to be seen with a shifter. She's running for mayor of Genesis Valley and her campaign is strictly anti-shifter. Her heart, however, seems to have different ideas on what it is she truly wants. So when pictures of her locking lips with a steamy bear shifter are spread around town, she needs to decide what's more important to her, becoming mayor, or the man she may just be falling for. Neither of them can seem to abide by their own rules, and when the public discovers what Kierra's been up to, they may not be willing to forgive her choice. As she gets swept up in the mystery that surrounds Darren, his crew and the Valley as a whole, the pair are forced to test the limits to which they will go for each other, and for what they believe in. Can they withstand the growing darkness as one, or will the emergence of a new player in the game thwart their desire for love?

Enter the Alternative School is an in-depth examination of public school alternatives to traditional educational models in the US. This book analyses how urban education can respond to a system growing increasingly standardised and privatised. As an example, Central Park East Secondary School (CPESS), a public alternative schooling model, successfully served predominantly low-income and minority students. It also changed the New York City public school system while promoting methods that allowed educational institutions to make changes in the lives of their students. Written by a sociologist who was both a student at CPESS and a teacher at a school developed from the CPESS model, the book analyses education from a range of vantage points, assesses outcomes, and invites readers to consider the potential of alternative educational models to address the challenges of reforms that attempt to provide quality education to the low-income and minority students otherwise under served by public schools.

When the oldest dragon shifter in the world needed someone to rescue his granddaughter, bear shifter Raphael stood up and volunteered. He was sure it was a fool's quest. She had been kidnapped months ago, and it was unlikely she was still alive. By the end of it, he may end up the same. That doesn't stop him from agreeing to go, however, for one simple reason: It's the right thing to do. Besides, with things in Genesis Valley calm for the time being, all the other shifters were spending time with their mates. Karlie, granddaughter of the dragon Ferrovax, has spent the past nine months in a prison. A fancy, country cottage-style prison, perhaps, but a cage nonetheless. There were no bars on the windows and no chains around her feet, but she knew that leaving was out of the question. The cadre of bear shifters who watched her every move prevented that. When a handsome stranger appears at her window in the middle of one of the worst storms she's seen, Karlie has seconds to decide what to do. As alarm bells ring and guards come rushing, the stranger promises her safety and a way out of her prison. But she hasn't forgotten that blind trust was what got her into trouble in the first place.

America is drifting towards another collision with Asian countries. This book sets the situation in perspective by tracing the development of relations between them during the last two centuries. No longer needing allies as it did during the Cold War, the United States is now using its economic power to force them to open their markets to its exports and to move towards Western democracy. American pressure is making Asians appreciate what they have in common, and helping to overcome the divisions that have kept them dependent on outside powers. But collision is not inevitable. America has played a critical part in the transformation of East Asia. It still has much to teach, and it now has much to learn as well. By studying Asian experience, Americans can re-learn the importance of self-discipline, and face Asian competition without relying on their power and resorting to protectionism. APEC shows the way for the United States and other Western countries to benefit from the fast growth of Asian economies, and make the whole of the Pacific area more prosperous.
