Out of the Cage: When an enforcer goes on a task for the council, he discovers a duty that will impact the rest of his life. Adisa Derringer has worked for the Shifter Council for over one hundred years. After refusing a councilman’s orders, he narrowly avoids losing his enforcer position. Accompanying another councilman as his security is a second chance. Unfortunately, Adisa doesn’t agree with why the shifter leader is visiting the pack—to assess the wolf shifter alpha’s activities and perhaps remove him as leader of his pack. Adisa approves of the wolf shifter’s actions—discreetly fighting the scientists experimenting on their kind. The Shifter Council doesn’t see it that way. When Adisa is shown one of the rescued shifters—a massive wolf seemingly driven to the brink of madness by the experiments done on him—he realizes the feral beast is his mate. If Adisa must again go against a councilman’s orders, it may not be only his job he’ll lose. Can Adisa nurture the tiny spark of humanity he spots in the wolf’s eyes, or will he lose out on both their futures... and maybe their lives?

This book will tell all you need to know about British English spelling. It's a reference work intended for anyone interested in the English language, especially those who teach it, whatever the age or mother tongue of their students. It will be particularly useful to those wishing to produce well-designed materials for teaching initial literacy via phonics, for teaching English as a foreign or second language, and for teacher training. English spelling is notoriously complicated and difficult to learn; it is correctly described as much less regular and predictable than any other alphabetic orthography. However, there is more regularity in the English spelling system than is generally appreciated. This book provides, for the first time, a thorough account of the whole complex system. It does so by describing how phonemes relate to graphemes and vice versa. It enables searches for particular words, so that one can easily find, not the meanings or pronunciations of words, but the other words with which those with unusual phoneme-grapheme/grapheme-phoneme correspondences keep company. Other unique features of this book include teacher-friendly lists of correspondences and various regularities not described by previous authorities, for example the strong tendency for the letter-name vowel phonemes (the names of the letters ) to be spelt with those single letters in non-final syllables.

[Siren Allure ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, with M/F, shape-shifters, HEA] Vampire-hawks and wolf-shifters have two things in common-hatred for each other and dwindling populations. Both species are headed toward extinction. One vampire has the secret to survival-if he can get the lycans to cooperate. But when vampire Aidan Longshadow walks into the Wolf Den looking for the alpha, he's barely through the door before he's attacked. Hunter Black, a lycan enforcer, comes to his aid and questions him. Aidan offers to trade information about the murder of Hunter's mate for lycan blood. At first, Hunter thinks it's a trap, but Aidan convinces him that the answer to both species' survival may lie in their blood. Hunter agrees to secretly help Aidan in exchange for the killer's name, but he gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself falling for the seductive vampire. When the research goes awry, he's sure he's been used by the scheming bloodsuckers. But is Aidan the real enemy, or is it someone closer to home? Note: This book contains dubious consent. Note: This book was previously published with another publisher and has been extensively revised and expanded. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

Logan St. Clair made some bad decisions and fell in with the wrong crowd. After believing a fellow wolf shifter�s bigoted opinions, he helps attack their pack�s brand new alpha and alpha-mate€his male alpha-mate. They lose and Logan is exiled. To his shock, Logan is approached by another alpha, Kontra Belikov‹a bear shifter who leads a nomadic group of bikers. Even knowing Kontra is mated to a male, the allure of a new pack is too strong, Logan accepts. Most of Kontra�s pack-members are in gay matings, and Logan learns to be polite and accepting of those who are gay, even forming his own opinions. While Logan no longer loathes homosexuals, he never expects to feel attraction to a guy. That�s exactly what happens, however, when he meets Kai�s human friend, Tyson Grubler. He doesn�t understand it and fights it with every fiber of his being. Except, when Logan sees Tyson head into a club bathroom with a stranger, he loses control of his wolf�s possessive instincts. Logan tosses Tyson�s trick out of the stall and sinks his teeth into a very shocked Tyson�s neck. Realizing what he�s done‹started the bonding process‹Logan flees. Can he come to terms with what his wolf already knows‹that Tyson is his mate?
