Ruthless Love by David Sutcliffe Summary

These poems explore loss through one man’s experience. His honesty will encourage readers to reflect on the losses they may have faced, and the vivid celebration of life will inspire us to cherish the people we say we love. The collection neither delineates the stages of grief nor is it a map by which we may discover our own precise location in the spiraling path of sorrow. Rather, it is an eyewitness account of many of the bizarre locations reached in the strange wilderness of bereavement.

A Ruthless Love Story by K.L. Hall Summary

When love leaves nineteen-year-old Loyalty Wallace with nothing but a pair of bruised ribs, she finds herself with $500,000 in stolen cash from her boyfriend, Whip, and a target on her back. She plans to use that money to escape her toxic relationship, but what she doesn’t know is the money she stole wasn’t his to keep. It was a loan from the Belmonte family, one of the most dangerous families in the heart of the Big Apple. Most children are taught not to play with their food, but Nevahn “Lourde” Belmonte was taught never to play with his money. He comes from a world of trappers and killers disguised as businessmen, so there are no college savings or 401K’s, only street money. As the only son of a street god, he’s next in line to inherit the million-dollar family “business” until his father throws a wrench in his plans. He must create a legacy, and he will not hand him the keys to the kingdom until he has a wife. With the lifestyle he lives, there’s no room for monogamy, let alone marriage. When Loyalty’s actions land her in Lourde’s presence, he’s immediately drawn to her fearlessness and beauty. She just may be the girl he needs to get what he wants. When given the chance, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. Over time, what was supposed to be just a “business” deal turns into much more than just six zeros scribbled on a check. In A Ruthle$$ Love Story, she will find out what it’s like to fall in love with a man whose reputation is almost as ruthless as his smile, and he will learn what it means to love someone unconditionally.

A Ruthless Love Story 2 by K.L. Hall Summary

In part one of A Ruthle$$ Love Story, Lourde’s only focus was proving to his father that he was worthy of the throne. Now that he knows Belmonte blood doesn’t run through his veins, he’s left with questions about who he really is. In the midst of all his family’s dirty laundry, he finds himself in love for the first time. When he loses himself, will he turn to Loyalty to remind him who he really is or feed into the ruthlessness he’s been immersed in all along? Loyalty’s entire life has been one emotional rollercoaster ride after another. Now, she’s just praying for the moment her feet touch solid ground and hoping she’s alive to witness it. All she wants is to be back by Lourde’s side, but soon learns that underneath the glitz and the glamour, there’s nothing picture perfect about the Belmonte family. Neenah finds herself bilious over her accident, which puts a strain on her relationship, mental health, and pregnancy. She’s determined to make things work with O’Shea and walk down the aisle, but Chanel just may have other plans. Her world is flipped upside down when a betrayal far greater than that of her father’s is revealed. What will she do when she finds out who the father of her best friend’s baby is? In A Ruthle$$ Love Story 2, friends become rivals as everyone lines up to see the Belmonte empire fall. With so many harbored secrets, who will make it out alive and who will be just another casualty in a war between families?

Ruthless River by Holly FitzGerald Summary

A stunning debut; a Departures original publication. The ultimate survival story; a wild ride—the wildest—down a South American river in the thick of the Amazon Basin; a true and thrilling adventure of a young married couple who survive a plane crash only to later raft hundreds of miles across Peru and Bolivia, ending up in a channel to nowhere, a dead end so flooded there is literally no land to stand on. Their raft—a mere four logs—separates them from the piranha-and-caiman-infested water until they finally realize that there is no way out but to swim. Vintage Original. Holly FitzGerald and her husband, Fitz—married less than two years—set out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival. On a small, soon-ravaged raft that quickly becomes their entire universe through dangerous waters alive with deadly animals and fish, their only choice: to continue on, despite the rush of insects swarming them by day, the sounds of encroaching predators at night. Without food or means of communication, with no one to hear their cries for help or on a search-and-rescue expedition to find them, the author and her husband make their way, fighting to conquer starvation and navigate the brute force of the river, their only hope for survival, in spite of hunger and weakening resolve, to somehow, miraculously hang on and find their way east to a large riverside town, before it is too late. . . .

Love, Justice, and Autonomy by Rachel Fedock,Michael Kühler,Raja Rosenhagen Summary

Philosophers have long been interested in love and its general role in morality. This volume focuses on and explores the complex relation between love and justice as it appears within loving relationships, between lovers and their wider social context, and the broader political realm. Special attention is paid to the ensuing challenge of understanding and respecting the lovers’ personal autonomy in all three contexts. Accordingly, the essays in this volume are divided into three thematic sections. Section I aims at shedding further light on conceptual and practical issues concerning the compatibility or incompatibility of love and justice within relationships of love. For example, are loving relations inherently unjust? Might love require justice? Or do love and justice belong to distinct moral domains? The essays in Section II consider the relation between the lovers on the one hand and their broader societal environment on the other. Specifically, how exactly are love and impartiality related? Are they compatible or not? Is it unjust to favor one’s beloved? Finally, Section III looks at the political dimensions of love and justice. How, for instance, do various accounts of love inform how we are to relate to our fellow citizens? If love is taken to play an important role in fostering or hindering the development of personal autonomy, what are the political implications that need to be addressed, and how? In addressing these questions, this book engenders a better understanding both of conceptual and practical issues regarding the relation between love, justice, and autonomy as well as their broader societal and political implications. It will be of interest to advanced students and scholars working on the philosophy of love from ethical, political, and psychological angles.

Personality Structure and Human Interaction by Harry Guntrip Summary

How has a theory of man as a social being to be formulated if we are to do justice to his individuality, to the subtle ways in which his love and hate compete within his relations with others and to the anxieties and resistances he shows when he seeks to change himself? To answer this question is the task which the author sets himself. After assessing Freud's basic principles, the author proceeds to make a uniquely comprehensive review of subsequent theoretical contributions to psychoanalysis with special emphasis on the work of Fairbairn and Melanie Klein. From a background of philosophy, theology and social studies, the author went on to take a personal psychoanalysis and to become a full time psychotherapist, and it is from this combination of wide knowledge and intensive work with people beset by conflicts in their relations with themselves and others that he evolves his views.

Hooked! by Yuwanda Black Summary

PREVIEW “I don’t mean to be harsh Kammille, but you mean to tell me that after four years of being in a relationship with you – and a year of being engaged to you -- that he wasn’t sure that’s what he wanted. I mean, y’all were living together already. It’s not like he was in for a big surprise. But he backed out, which says to me that he had no clue as to what he wanted from your relationship. And when a man doesn’t know what he wants, he’s likely to do all types of stupid crap -- like lose control over his finances and lose control over his sperm. This makes him non-marriage material in my book. I don’t care how fine he is, how much money he makes, or how nice he is.” “Well Omar didn’t have any children. And his credit was just a little banged up. It’s nothing that couldn’t have been fixed. People bounce back from bad credit all the time Liza.” “But few of them bounce back from indecisiveness – especially at his age. Not to beat a dead horse, but if he was in his twenties with ‘banged-up credit,’ as you put it, I could maybe see it Kammille. But Omar was 34 – long past when he should have had his shit together. And his pride should have made him not allow you be the sole signor on that mortgage. Good thing you didn’t need him to pay the bills. You’d be stuck with a big ole mortgage all by yourself. Now you’re just stuck by yourself. But that won’t last. One thing he did get right is that you’re an awesome catch!” Kammille didn't realize how prophetic her business partner's words would be when she planned her getaway to South Beach, Miami. It's exactly the break she'd needed after her engagement was called off a year ago. ### Landon’s eyes followed every delectable sway of her picture-perfect backside as she walked in front of him. Tonight was turning out to be a helluva lot better than his day. Kammille could feel his eyes on her. They were like an ass-laser, trained to hone in on exactly one spot – her backside. She felt heated, from the swell of her butt to the intimate crease between her thighs. She hadn't decided whether she was flattered or pissed off about where his impossibly gorgeous eyes were focused. “As this is our second meeting, I suppose the first thing we should do is get introductions out of the way. I’m Landon; Landon Shaw,” he said, extending a large hand across the table for her to shake. Nice to meet you, Mr. Shaw. I’m Kammille Howard,” she said, taking his hand, which swallowed hers. She liked the feeling. It made her feel feminine and protected. It’s all part of the game extremely handsome men like him played with women, she reminded herself; you'd do well not to forget it. ### “I’m not the kind of person who dwells on what could have been. I focus on what is. And right now before me is a beautiful woman ... one I’m going to kiss,” he forewarned, his strong, warm hand cupping her right jawline. “Resist me if you must,” he said, those penetrating grey eyes disturbingly close to hers, “but I could never live with myself if I didn’t at least try.” Before she could even begin to formulate how to control her ragged breathing, or still the blood coursing throughout her body, his exceedingly soft lips commandeered hers. It truly was like a proverbial match to a flame. It had been over a year since she had been kissed. And it felt so good. And he was so good at it. Kammille wrapped her arms around his waist, feeling the hardness of his cord-like strength as he pulled her to him, deepening the kiss. The force of what was building within her was crippling … crippling her ability to think, to form a cohesive thought, to resist … even a little. Shards of desire, passion, longing, loving and sheer lust made her forget all of her resolve about ‘men like him’, saving her intimate self for marriage, and her fears of getting hurt. The only thing she felt in his arms was raw, naked need.

The Robust Demands of the Good by Philip Pettit Summary

Some goods that we generate for others, as when we give them attention or help or encouragement, require us to provide that benefit under the actual circumstances where we interact. Other goods that we generate require not just that we actually provide that sort of benefit but that we are also poised to provide it, even should actual circumstances change in various ways. These goods demand robust and not merely actual beneficence. Thus to give you friendship I must be robustly, not just accidentally, attentive to your needs; to give you a virtue like honesty I must be robustly disposed to tell you the truth; and to give you respect I must be robustly committed to showing restraint in my dealings with you. In this original contribution to normative ethics, Philip Pettit charts the range of robustly demanding goods, building on his earlier work on the robust demands of freedom. He explores the rationale behind our concern for being able to rely on others to treat us well, not just for being lucky enough to enjoy good treatment. And then he traces the implications for ethics of giving a central place to robustly demanding goods. The lessons he draws teach us that there is a tighter connection between being good and doing good than is generally recognized; that it is harder to count as doing good than it is to count as doing evil; and that there is a serious issue, ignored in many ethical theories, about the basis on which we should deliberate in day-to-day decisions about what it is right to do. The book amounts to a radical rethinking of ethics in which many standard positions shift or fall. The association between being good and doing good casts doubt on the orthodox dichotomy between evaluating agents and evaluating actions. The calibration between doing good and doing evil explains the Knobe effect, so called, as well as explaining the superficial appeal of doctrines like that of double effect. And the investigation of how to be guided in deliberating about the right reduces the gap between the recommendations of approaches like Kantianism, contractualism, and virtue theory and their common, consequentialist foe.

The author's lexicon - The Language of Winnicott - has proved to be the definitive comprehensive guide to Winnicott's thought since it was first published in 1996, Winnicott's centenary Year. The twenty-two entries represent the major conceptualisations in Winnicott's theories and take the reader on a journey through his writings that span from 1931 to 1971.

Defining Psychoanalysis by Ian Miller Summary

The empirical baseline of today's psychoanalytic vernacular may be inferred from what psychoanalysts read. Contemporary information aggregation provides us with a unique moment in "reading" today's psychoanalytic vernacular. The PEP Archive compiles data on journal articles analogous to radio stations' "hit parades" of contemporary favorites. Defining Psychoanalysis: Achieving a Vernacular Expression provides a close reading of this contemporary assemblage, including three "strong" readings by Winnicott and two by Bion. It pursues the elements generated by these papers as an indication of contemporary psychoanalytic "common sense", our consensual building blocks of theory and practice.

Delly quickly sets her sights on one of her companions, the confident and well-bred Winn Cynallum. The job looks like nothing but romance and easy money until things take a deadly (and undead) turn. With the help of a bird-loving necromancer, a shapeshifting schoolgirl, and an ill-tempered reanimated mouse named Buttons, Delly and Winn are determined to get the best of an adversary who wields a twisted magic and has friends in the highest of places.
