Bestselling author Debra Dixon takes readers on a tense and taut ride in this thrilling romance that's both sensual and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. With his last breath, the man who took a bullet to protect her sent Emily Quinn on the run. Armed with only a name and an address, Emily makes her way to a small town in Washington State, where an ex-Navy SEAL just might be able to help her disappear--forever. As the bad guys and the Feds close in, Emily will have to put all her faith in this stranger, a man who makes her pulse race faster than any man ever has. She knows she'll be damned if she trusts him--and dead if she doesn't. When Christian "Gabe" Gabriel first sets eyes on Emily, she's dressed as a nun. But he can see right through that habit to the frightened, beautiful woman underneath. His time in the military has honed his reflexes and dampened his emotions--or so he thinks. Because Emily has tapped something deep inside Gabe--and it's a temptation that may cost them both their lives. But what a sweet, sinful indulgence it will be. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: All Is Fair . . ., Bad to the Bone, and Rescuing Diana.

Hot Coal, Cold Steel: Russian and Ukrainian Workers from the End of the Soviet Union to the Post-communist Transformationsby Stephen Crowley
Well after the disintegration of the Communist Party and the Soviet state--and through several years of economic collapse--industrial workers in almost every sector of the former Soviet Union have remained quiescent and the same ineffective and unpopular trade unions still hold a virtual monopoly on worker's representation. Why? While many argue that labor is a central variable in the development of economic and political systems, little is known about workers in the states of the former Soviet Union since the fall of Communism. In a comparative study of two groups of industrial workers--the coal miners and steelworkers--at the end of the Soviet era, Stephen Crowley sheds light on where these workers have been and where they are going. Coal miners in the final years of the Soviet Union effectively organized and led strikes which supported the end of Communism, even though their heavy subsidies would be threatened by capitalism. Steel workers, in contrast, did not effectively organize and strike. This pattern has continued under the new governments, with the coal miners effectively organized and seeking protection from the worst consequences of marketization, while the steel workers remain weakly organized despite deteriorating economic conditions. Based on extensive on-site research including interviews with miners and steelworkers, labor leaders and plant managers, Crowley develops a detailed picture of the conditions under which workers organize. His findings have application beyond the conditions of post-Communist Russia and Ukraine to other societies undergoing fundamental change.
