Want more Ferrano alpha male hotness? Get to know Dario a whole lot better in this continuation story about the Ferrano family. Dario is Tommy's younger brother and after seeing his brother fall in love Dare's new motto is MAN WHORE NO MORE! Dare wants his happily ever after. But, after Dare comes home from his brother's wedding and celebrates his 25th birthday he gets a posthumous gift from his father, one that'll change the course of his life. *** Before my father died he arranged for my brother to get married, gifted him with a girl. After I saw the impact of that girl on my brother's life I joked with him that I wanted a mail-order bride for my upcoming birthday, joked about it with emotions about my now sister-in-law that I should not EVER have been feeling. My father joked back that he was already shopping around and would find me a perfect fit. At least I'd thought he'd been joking. But when I got home from my brother's wedding I found out that before Pop died he had gotten that ball rolling. He'd gotten things rolling in a way that could not be stopped and that was going to be a problem. A messy problem. See, my Pop was deeply involved in a human trafficking ring, one of the many involvements he'd neglected to tell me and my brother about as he prepared us to take over the family business. We never knew that what he'd had in mind for us was just the top skim off a cesspool of filth he'd been too happy to be wading in. We had suspicions but we had no clue just how filthy it truly was. A little less than two months before my birthday he had asked me what I wanted in a bride. "What's on your wish list, son?" Pop asked. "Beautiful. Redhead. But she has to want what I want from life. She has to have an insatiable sexual appetite but want kids and a picket fence, too." "How about if she's all those things because she does exactly what you tell her to do? How about if she's been schooled in all the ways to please a man in and out of the bedroom?" "That's too good to be true, Pop. Too bad such a woman does not exist." I'd laughed it off and our conversation got cut short. I'd always wanted a wife and kids. I wanted the picket fence and enough kids to start my own soccer team. But when I caught my fiancee cheating on me with the DJ we'd hired for our wedding my heart went cold and what my sister dubbed my 'man whore years' began. After seeing Tommy's life change because of falling in love I decided that maybe it was time to open my mind up to the possibilities of connecting with someone again beyond a one night stand. But when I got home from my brother's wedding, ready to start the massive job of cleaning up the family business so that I could move on with my life and think about finding my own happily ever after I found out that Pop had already ordered my mail order bride. And I couldn't cancel that order. She's waiting for me to pick her up near Bangkok. She's been told she has been sold and is going back to North America. She's about to turn 23, she's a beautiful redhead, and she's been in captivity for 2 years. There's no way I can accept this gift, keep a woman who was bought for me. I need to pick her up and set her free. Don't I? Warning: Explicit sex scenes. Profanity. Dark themes. This book's heroine is a sex slave that gets rescued. She's broken. The book does not spend chapter after chapter describing her abuse in detail but there is some explicit content related to her memories.

The Ultimate Look : from Drawing Board to Scrapyard
Author: William Wolf
Publisher: Schiffer Pub Limited
Over the years the B-32 has been described only in a small number of magazine articles and in a booklet that have generally given a superficial and incomplete account, maligning the bomber, fairly or not, as a mediocre design besieged with developmental problems and a lackluster combat record. Consolidated B-32 Dominator - The Ultimate Look: from Drawing Board to Scrapyard is the definitive description and appraisal of this neglected bombers development, testing, manufacture, and combat experience. The author used company design and production information, flight and test evaluations, along with previously unexplored Flight Manuals and Consolidated-Vultee Erection and Maintenance Manuals. From rare microfilm of original material and insights and personal narratives of the personnel involved, Wolf has gathered information on the pre-combat testing and all the combat missions of the bomber in the Pacific.
...embedded in the trunk of the scion of the godtree, it contains the essence of the maddest of the Ten Who Were Taken...The Dominator. Defeated by the Lady and cast from this world, all that was left of him was a foul trace of lingering evil. But the graveyard that was once the Barrowland contains more secrets than dead. All who would possess the power of the Dominator are drawn to the spike. A foolhardy band of thieves is the first to reach it, and a rapacious and malign spirit is unleashed on an unwary world. The forces gather, sides are drawn, and mortal men can only die as the Dark Lords battle for domination.
