Royal Exile (The Valisar Trilogy #1)

by Fiona Mcintosh

From out of the East they came riding like a merciless plague--destroying kingdom after kingdom and the sovereigns who had previously mocked the warlord Loethar and his barbarian horde. Now only one land remains unconquered-the largest, richest, and most powerful realm of the Denova Set ... Penraven. The Valisar royals of Penraven face certain death, for the savage tyrant Loethar covets what they alone possess: the fabled Valisar Enchantment, an irresistible power to coerce, which will belong to Loethar once every Valisar has been slain. But the last hope of the besieged kingdom is being sent in secret from his doomed home, in the company of a single warrior. The future of Penraven now rests on the shoulders of the young Crown Prince Leonel who, though untried and untested in the ways of war, must survive brutality and treachery in order to claim the Valisar throne.

From London gaming-halls and English hunting-fields to European dungeons and throne-rooms, he is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours and (when he cannot avoid them) hand-to-hand combats. All the while, the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.

Royal Service: My Twelve Years as Valet to Prince Charles

by Stephen Barry

[from inside flaps] "Since the fairy-tale marriage of the dashing Prince to the blonde and beautiful Lady Diana in July 1981, followed by the birth a year later of Prince William of Wales, the public's fascination with Great Britain's Royal Family has continued unabated. And Stephen Barry, personal valet to Prince Charles for the twelve years prior to the Prince's marriage, was privy to more confidential information and closer to the day-to-day activities of the future monarch than almost anyone else. In Royal Service, Barry takes us into the inner workings of Buckingham Palace and reveals what it is really like to be a commoner living and working side-by-side with royalty. On the one hand, Barry maintains, "one is so protected working for the Royals that it can be difficult to function on one's feet outside." Royals are indeed different from the rest of us, and that difference is rigidly upheld: "However kind and friendly they are, in the end they are Royal." This candid memoir details those differences with clarity, humor, and affection. Filled with personal anecdotes, from intimate revelations about the "other women" in the Prince's life to the courtship of Diana, to particulars of the fabled honeymoon on the Royal yacht Britannia, Royal Service provides a never-before look through the Royal keyhole at the entire family. We join family picnics at Sandringham, go grouse shooting at Balmoral, and participate in the joyous family Christmas at Windsor Castle. We learn about the different relationships between family members, from the Queen and Prince Philip to the independent Princesses Margaret and Anne, and we get as well an exclusive look at Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in their unique dual relationship as mother/son and monarch/heir apparent Royal Service is also the poignant story of a commoner who came into the Palace as a footman in 1967 at the age of nineteen and only three years later found himself traveling around the globe with his Prince--from polo matches in Australia to the funeral of Anwahr Sadat in Cairo--and organizing the enormously busy workload of the future monarch. In sum, Royal Service is truly an "upstairs at Buckingham Palace"--a delectable, unforgettable portrait of Prince Charles by the only man who could have written it."

Royal Sisters: The Story of the Daughters of James II (Stuart Saga #6)

by Jean Plaidy

Two sisters change the course of a nation by forsaking the King-their own father. England is on the verge of revolution. Antagonized by the Catholicism of King James II, the people plot to drive him from the throne. But at the heart of the plot is a deep betrayal: the defection of the daughters James loves, Mary and Anne. Both raised Protestant according to the wishes of England, the sisters support Protestant usurper William of Orange, Mary's husband, who lusts after the British crown. Passive Queen Mary is subservient to her husband's wishes, while Anne is desperate to please her childhood friend Sarah Churchill, a bold and domineering woman determined to subdue Anne, the queen-to-be, and rule England herself. Intrigue and political drama run high as the sisters struggle to be reconciled with each other--and with the haunting memory of the father they have exiled. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Royal Society and the Discovery of the Two Sicilies

by Manuela D’Amore

This book illuminates a lesser-known aspect of the British history of travel in the Enlightenment: that of the Royal Society’s special contribution to the “discovery” of the south of Italy in the age of the Grand Tour. By exploring primary source journal entries of philosophy and travel, the book provides evidence of how the Society helped raise the Fellows’ curiosity about the Mediterranean and encouraged travel to the region by promoting cultural events there and establishing fruitful relations with major Italian academic institutions. They were especially devoted to revealing the natural and artistic riches of the Bourbon Kingdom from 1738 to 1780, during which the Roman city of Herculaneum was discovered and Vesuvius and Etna were actively eruptive. Through these examples, the book draws attention to the role that the Royal Society played in establishing cultural networks in Italy and beyond. Tracing a complex path starting in Restoration times, this new insight into discourse on learned travel contributes to a more challenging vision of Anglo-Italian relations in the Enlightenment.

The Royal Treatment

by Barbara Royal

An integrative and revolutionary way to treat your animals, combining holistic and natural medicine with the best of modern science. Dr. Barbara Royal is a passionate, dedicated, and innovative veterinarian with a unique approach to medicine. Her patients have included countless different species from German shepherds at her private practice, to baby owls in the wild, to zebras in the zoo. Her clients are the humans who live for their pets, much like she does. Her ability to lend a voice to sick or injured animals and carry out the best treatment for them is unmatched. An expert diagnostician with a background in zoo and wildlife medicine, Dr. Royal has learned that adhering to the teachings of Western medicine is often not the best way to fully cure her patients. With the clinical experience to know when to use surgery, medications, and alternative methods, plus an observant and empathetic understanding of the evolutionary needs of her patients, she individually tailors the Royal Treatment to ensure that each pet (and owner!) lives as happily and healthfully as possible. The knowledge she has gained from wild animals gives her valuable insight into the cat in your kitchen and the dog in your living room. Our pets have all evolved from wild species and adapted to domestic life in many ways, but their natural characteristics are genetically fixed. In order for our pets to meet their full health potential, we must be mindful of these natural nutritional, emotional, and physical needs. Applying common sense in this way, along with the support of medicine, nutrition, elements of Eastern medicine, and physical rehabilitation, fosters an animal's natural inclination toward optimal health and immunity. There is no placebo effect in animal medicine, and Dr. Royal has seen amazing results with her integrative approach, time and time again. A must-have for all pet owners, these pages shimmer with ingenious advice, insight, and scientific originality. But most of all, a veterinarian with heart comes through in every word. Dr. Royal empowers animal lovers to lift their pets into a realm of natural health and happiness that will be palpable from shiny coat to bouncy step. *** Learn everything you need to know about taking care of your pet naturally, including: * Functional nutrition and diet recipes * Commercial pet food: recognizing the good, the bad, and the unhealthy * How diet and protein levels specifically affect your pet's health and behavior * Judicious use of herbs and medicines * How to detect if your pet is feeling pain and where * Noninvasive, nonsurgical treatments for genetically flawed hips and other arthritic joints * How to know if your pet is happy * How to clean your dog's, cat's, or rabbit's ears--the right way! * Pet supplements explained * Which vaccines to give or not give your pet * Evolutionary insights into your pet's behavior * Getting your new puppy off to a perfect start * How acupuncture works * Geriatric wellness and end-of-life care . . . and more
