From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought… Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook. A man who I’d only just begun to move on from. A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about. A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy. Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare. Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done. But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client …was there?

This volume presents a timely, provocative and beautifully illustrated re-evaluation of how the issues of gender, identity and sexuality reveal 'naked truths' about fundamental human values and social realities, through the compelling symbolism of the body.

Naked Truths is the true story of a New Jersey grandmother who was arrested for taking innocent nude photos of her two young granddaughters. Through the telling of her personal experiences in the clutches of the criminal justice system and child protective services, she raises serious questions about crucial issues that concern all of us: issues of privacy and censorship; of freedom of expression and the erosion of our First Amendment rights; of overzealous and wrongful prosecutions; and of our frenetic attempt to protect children in a very threatening world, often sacrificing the very children and families they claim to protect. Naked Truths is about a modern day witch hunt where innocent people are caught in a trap meant to catch actual pornographers and pedophiles; where film processors are vigilantes for the state and where the justice system has free rein to create havoc with no accountability. Naked Truths will tell you well-kept secrets about: * Parental Rights You Thought You Had, * Illusions of Privacy That We Live With, * What Your Own Lawyer Doesn't Want You To Know, * Dangers Lurking in Child Protective Services, and much more.... .

Open the pages to 'Naked Truth' and you'll find yourself entering the mind of a young woman who sees the world similar to how each and everyone of you do, but explains it differently and intensely. Through the art of rhyming and poetry Jordan Sarah Weatherhead writes about things from timeless issues that affect everyone, such as love, discrimination, and self-discovery, up to things that are current or may only reach out to a certain audience, such as the war in Iraq, drinking, and sex. At times "Naked Truth" becomes dark and ominous, while remaining raw and real. This book offers a wide variety of poems which offer hope and encouragement. Whether it's a chapter about magic and myth or travel and nature or even deployment and long distance love, Weatherhead stays brutally honest and vividly descriptive, from beginning to end. No matter the chapter you'll find her poetry easy to read and even more so, easy to relate to. So open the cover and dive into a world where everyday life and challenges are explained in a way you've never heard before. Enter a world where no matter how low or down you may be in your life, you are not alone. There is always a brightness leaking under the door of a dark room. Always a perfect streaked arch ready to paint the sky after the clouds are done crying, and, things no matter how bad they get, will always get better. And this book will prove that.

As Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Fashion is a form of ugliness so absolutely unbearable that we have to alter it every six months.” And yet it serves to make us beautiful, or at least make us feel beautiful. In this book, Mari Grinde Arntzen asks how and why this is—how can fashion simultaneously attract us to its glamour and repel us with its superficiality and how being called “fashionable” can be at once a compliment and an insult. Arntzen guides us through the major figures and brands of today’s fashion industry, showing how they shape us and in turn why we love to be shaped by them. She examines both everyday, affordable “fast fashion” brands, as well as the luxury market, to show how fashion commands a powerful influence on every socioeconomic level of our society. Stepping into our closets with us, she thinks about what happens when we get dressed: why fashion can make us feel powerful, beautiful, and original at the same time that it forces us into conformity. Stripping off the layers of the world’s fifth largest industry, garment by garment, she holds fashion up as a phenomenon, business, and art, exploring the questions it forces us to ask about the body, image, celebrity, and self-obsession. Ultimately, Arntzen asks the most direct question: what is fashion? How has it taken such a powerful hold on the world, forever propelling us toward its concepts of beauty?
