Walking away from Luke Thomas was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but the choice was out of my hands. I left Las Vegas a seventeen-year-old girl, afraid and alone, and returned about the same. I was forced into a situation I didn’t want to be in. Until that day. I haven’t seen him in ten long years, but one look at the man he became and that killer smile, and I knew I would never be the same. Luke Life goes on. I learned that valuable piece of information at a young age, but sometimes a memory creeps up and smacks me square in the face. Or more accurately, a person. The day my best friend walked away was the day I realized I’d never be the same. My life became work, family, and women, and I was doing great. Then she walked back into my life. One look at the grown-version of Sidney Rogen leaves me breathless and yearning for more. But love is never easy. And our love story isn’t perfect. In a heartbeat, one person can wrap around you so tightly, you’re entwined forever. That’s our love.

Twins are nature's living laboratories. Through them we are able to uncover new information concerning the genetic and environmental factors affecting who we are. Studies using identical and fraternal twins hold the keys to understanding our intellectual abilities, personality traits, social attitudes, and behavior. In Entwined Lives, Dr. Nancy Segal brings together cutting-edge information with illustrative case histories of twins and their families. In addition to the fascinating stories of identical twins reared apart and reunited as adults, Dr. Segal provides insights into the unusual language patterns of twins, how twin studies affect legal decisions, the role of fertility treatments in twin and "twinlike" conceptions, and more. This groundbreaking book explores the ways in which twins enhance our knowledge of human behavioral and physical development, while shedding new light on the nature/nurture debate and on the burgeoning field of evolutionary psychology.

Music and Painting in the Nineteenth Century

This collection of essays by musicologists and art historians explores the reciprocal influences between music and painting during the nineteenth century, a critical period of gestation when instrumental music was identified as the paradigmatic expressive art and theoretically aligned with painting in the formulation ut pictura musica (as with music, so with painting). Under music's influence, painting approached the threshold of abstraction; concurrently many composers cultivated pictorial effects in their music. Individual essays address such themes as visualization in music, the literary vs. pictorial basis of the symphonic poem, musical pictorialism in painting and lithography, and the influence of Wagner on the visual arts. In these and other ways, both composers and painters actively participated in interarts discourses in seeking to redefine the very identity and aims of their art. Also includes 17 musical examples.

The force of a soulful love is a constant reminder that you should never give up, nor let go, if there is even the slightest hope that someone who you have been told is dead, is very much alive. It all just relies on a link, a touch, a ray of hope that will entwine it all together. Do you go against everything you know to find the truth about a syndicate of criminals even if it means breaking the oath that you have stood by since you can remember? Ultimately, it all comes down to one small question that can change your life forever. Do you hold on, or do you let go, of the one person who really matters? Sometimes, what's left behind... will be impossible to forget. I realised that I had to be in a similar hospital to the one they had taken me too before, and in a storage room or something that had been emptied. I wanted to scream, but the cloth around my mouth left me unable. As far as that man outside my door would think, I was still out of it. I tried to move the chair by thrusting my whole body, but it didn't move so I guessed it was attached to the bench that looked as though it skirted the whole room. There was more to life than this, surely. There had to be answers to the questions hiding deep within me. I had always been able to find my answers. I just needed to work out how to put my finger on the clues and let them lead the way. Why was I there? Why was I so important? Why was Zavier? I had to think hard, because I know better than anyone that the answers rely on a link, a touch, a ray of hope that will entwine everything together. I just need those answers to become me, like they had always done in the past. I needed to be able to put the pieces of this sick puzzle together so I could understand what I was facing. Would I die trying? I wanted to be able to breathe again, freely, like I used to when I was a child. I wanted this weight of the unknown or whatever it was holding me down to lift from me and disappear into thin air... just the way all my hopes and dreams had done. I just wanted my life to be safe.

Arlene was a very spirited soul, but untypically for a soul who lived in the heavenly plane, she wanted to go back down to the earth plane, for an unprecedented visit. This was not allowed of course, it had never been done before, but she did not care...she was going to go, whatever her soul-mate Simon or the “Great Lord’s of The Council” had to say. Claire Denton lived with her husband Mark in the small town of Horsham in West Sussex. She had three grown up children and lived a very ordinary life. She was exactly the type of soul that Arlene was looking for. The only way for Arlene to succeed in her dangerous scheme was to change places with some poor, unsuspecting soul, and in turn send that soul up to heaven in her place. Claire Denton filled the brief, and her life would be the perfect foil for Arlene’s misadventures. So will Claire make it through her ordeal? Will Claire’s family find out the truth of what is going on? And most of all will Arlene get her just rewards and get what she deserves for ruining the lives of the souls all around her? Join these two women and the people who will do their best to get them back to their rightful places, as they travel through the different realms of existence, and see how they cope with what life and the other soul’s conjure up for them.
