LOVE BY NUMBERS is the story of April, a young career woman whose experiment to control her heart leads to unexpected consequences for her and the friends she draws into her complicated 'love square'. How to Fall in Love with Someone YOU Choose. (Why not, if you have a broken man-picker?) Choose an available, compatible guy-friend (who doesn't turn you off) and rewire your brains for a hot and heavy romance. 1. Get emotional while watching a sad movie. 2. Share a major adrenaline rush. 3. Be competent at something cool, but don't make a big deal out of it. 4. Have him provide food from the hunt (a good restaurant will do). 5. Eyegaze until it doesn't feel weird. 6. Fulfil each other's primary fantasies within reason and without judgment. 7. Sleep together like stacked spoons. Repeat the above until love and lust click in. Then send your love brain chemicals into overdrive by not seeing each other. That's when things really get cooking.
There are few topics more guaranteed to stir human emotions than romance. Whether you are in a wonderful relationship, have loved and lost, given up in frustration or are simply still looking, it's a fair bet that love, or the pursuit of it, is never that far from your thoughts. Success in finding the 'perfect' partner sometimes seem to depend ......

True-love facts about modern dating, marriage, breakups, and makeups, from the Guardian’s popular relationships advice columnist Is love blind—or does Cupid calculate? Luisa Dillner, a medical doctor and the entertaining “Love by Numbers” columnist for London’s Guardian newspaper, sifts through the latest scientific research to answer the questions of the lovelorn and the love crazy alike.

How can I get my boyfriend to stop flirting and start taking out the trash? Are office romances doomed? What’s the best way to mend a broken heart? Will any couple ever be able to avoid arguing in the car? For those curious about the chances of tempting someone to leave a spouse (50 percent of those approached take the bait) or if Web romances bloom in the spring (the peak times for online love are actually January, February, and September), Dillner is the perfect—and amusing—guide to the science of living happily ever after.

Nichts auf der Welt ist schwieriger als die Liebe. Das erleben Fermina Daza und Doktor Juvenal Urbino tagtäglich in ihrer mehr als fünfzigjährigen Ehe.

Während Fermina Daza an der Seite ihres Mannes, eines hoch geachteten Arztes, ein großbürgerliches Leben führt, bringt es Florentino Ariza durch beruflichen Erfolg zu großem Wohlstand. Er ist ein nimmermüder Schürzenjäger, im Herzen aber Fermina Daza immer treu geblieben, und noch am Abend der Beerdigung ihres Mannes erklärt er ihr erneut seine Liebe.Ein großer Liebesroman, eine Geschichte voller Lebenskraft und Poesie. „Ohne die reichen Bücher von García Márquez wäre unsere Welt entschieden ärmer.“ Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
As a behavioral scientist, Professor Nicole Hathaway’s work strips away the foolish mystique that surrounds the human mating dance. When her academic tome is treated as a viral “love manual” her ecstatic publisher books her to appear all over the U.S. and Europe. Worse yet, her quiet, managed life has been shattered by a series of incompetent assistants. And she’s certain this Lily Smith creature isn’t going to be any less a burden than the last assistant they sent her. Or the one before that. Or before that... Lillian Linden-Smith needs this job. With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for her blood for crimes committed by her “American royalty” parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she’s dealing with. It’s hate at first sight in this love adventure from the author of Above Temptation, Roller Coaster and dozens of other best-selling, award-winning novels.
After a buggy accident claims the life of her fiancé, Lydia Hershberger makes a fresh start in Jamesport, Missouri, managing a gift store. It isn’t long before she meets the young man hired to handle the bookkeeping—Caleb Bontrager, whose handcrafted cuckoo clocks are sold in the store. // And it isn't long before Caleb has made up his mind about her: bright and sparkly but not right for him. Alarmed by his attraction to her, he determines to settle down with someone more practical. Less sparkle. More logic. But he can’t seem to shake his feelings for Lydia. // When false allegations by the bishop back home catch up with Lydia and threaten to ruin her reputation, can she clear her name and find lasting happiness? Or will her sunny disposition fade away into heartbreak?

Sarah ist am Boden zerstört und sucht plötzlich die Nähe zu den anderen Nachbarn. Vor allem zu Jane und Tom, den neuen Bewohnern im Hochparterre. Sie helfen Sarah wieder auf die Beine.

"The poetry of Gaius Valerius Catullus survived antiquity by the slimmest of threads. This study concerns the controversial issue of whether the order of the collection was contrived by the poet himself. Love by the Numbers offers new and compelling evidence that Catullus shaped the work into an exquisitely interrelated whole. The aesthetic patterning is highly significant because it offers fresh solutions to long-standing problems of text and interpretation. The development of deeply learned philological analysis in the service of elucidating widely applicable human concerns makes this book a relative rarity in the field of Classics, a work of hard scholarship that informs a human sensibility toward matters of the heart."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Mathematik versteht man oder eben nicht. Der eine ist dafür natürlich begabt, dem anderen bleibt dieses Fach für immer ein Rätsel. Stimmt nicht, sagt nun Barbara Oakley und zeigt mit ihrem Buch, dass wirklich jeder ein Gespür für Zahlen hat. Mathematik braucht nämlich nicht nur analytisches Denken, sondern auch den kreativen Geist. Denn noch mehr als um Formeln geht es um die Freiheit, einen der vielen möglichen Lösungsansätze zu finden. Der Weg ist das Ziel. Und wie man zum richtigen Ergebnis kommt, ist eine Kunst, die man entwickeln, entdecken und in sich wecken kann. Die Autorin vermittelt eine Vielfalt an Techniken und Werkzeugen, die das Verständnis von Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft grundlegend verbessern. (K)ein Gespür für Zahlen nimmt Ihnen — vor allem wenn Sie sich in Schule, Uni oder Beruf mathematisch oder naturwissenschaftlich beweisen müssen — nicht nur die Grundangst, sondern stärkt Ihren Mut, Ihren mathematischen Fähigkeiten zu vertrauen. So macht Mathe Spaß!
H4Faith gives way to praise opening the door to eternity. This allows us to experience the order of life in a time base out of order world. Where there is order there's an absolute and fellowship with Jesus from His world, the King and giver of life. Things are not always what they appear to be. Are we following projected images on our minds or reality? To find meaning one has to search out answers. As Joseph stored grain for seven years, God has blessed me by storing up understanding for the times of famine in every day life. Living Your Live According to Connecting the Dots by Number was written for me to help me understand who I am and what God's plan is for my life. Writing this book restored sanity to my life by pushing out the dark lies of misperceptions and packing my mind with the light of God's truth in its place. Jesus navigates, I trust and follow. Now it is my desire to share my vision and help others to grow in His body (Love + Truth = Light), that they may face life's journey and deal with problems with a close relationship with God to see them through as he does me.
What is the formula to finding true love? Life is pretty perfect for Marsie Penny—she has great friends, a career she is passionate about, plus financial security. The one thing missing is a partner to share it all with. Frustrated by the online dating scene, Marsie’s created an algorithm to help find her perfect match. Could she have gotten her formula wrong, though? Her feelings for colleague Jason Ellis just don’t add up. Jason believes in love at first sight—which is ridiculous. And he doesn’t tick off any of her boxes…except for his charm, his warm smile and his cute butt. But all it takes is one heated kiss to make her wonder if she should rethink her numbers.
A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen's club. Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried - and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she's vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she's been missing. But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss - to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St John, the Marquess of Ralston - charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile. If she's not careful, she'll break the most important rule of all - the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love . . .
