Book two in the Bodyguards in Love Series After a lifetime of abuse, Jared Grant was rescued by Brier Blackstone and taken to one of the safest places he knew, the bodyguard dormitory of the Three Partners Protection Agency. For the first time, Jared is surrounded by men whose job it is to protect, not hurt him. One of his protectors, Sebastian James, knows a little something about abuse. Once a victim of abuse before he and his brother were taken from an abusive household and put into separate foster homes, Seb learned to harden his heart as a way of survival. Now, the soft spoken and scared Jared threatens the shell Seb spent years fortifying. When Jared's tormentor threatens him from jail, it's up to Seb and the rest of the bodyguards to keep Jared safe until he can testify at his abuser's trial. However, the close contact might be more than Seb's hard shell can withstand.
Dr. Joe Connors and socialite lawyer Lucy Alcott come from two different worlds, two very different cultures. But will those differences keep them apart when their attraction is too strong to be denied? When socialite Savannah attorney Lucy Alcott entered the Hyatt looking for fun, martinis, and hot sex, the last thing she expected to find was Dr. Joe Connors. Joe is Lucy’s opposite in every way: he’s dark, she’s pale; he’s tall and reserved, she’s tiny and vivacious; he wears his compassion and deep spirituality on his sleeve, she wears designer bags and clothes.
That night at the Hyatt Lucy found herself not in the arms of a casual encounter but reaching out to a man who challenged the walls she had built around her heart—and when he gave her his number, Lucy knew Joe deserved a woman as warm and tender as he was. So she threw his number away. When an unexpected meeting six months later brings them together again, will Joe overcome Lucy’s fear of losing her heart, or are their two very different worlds destined to keep them apart forever?
Go to http: //cosmumps.org for a download of just the examples of the book. This book serves as an explanation of Cache ObjectScript and the MUMPS programming language. It is designed as both a comprehensive learning guide and a technical reference manual. This is useful to programmers of any level, whether you are new to the language or an experienced developer looking for more information on Cache Objects. The book starts with Basic Concepts whilst introducing simple MUMPS commands.
It then progresses on to System-Supplied Functions. Two full chapters are devoted to the discussion of the MUMPS Global Structure, the heart of Cache/MUMPS. Pattern Matching, Comparison Operators, File Processing as well as Testing and Debugging with Error Processing come next. More advanced subjects are introduced with Procedures, Structured, and Robust Code. Before moving on to Objects, Date Processing is thoroughly discussed. Starting with Chapter 21 Object Technology is introduced; Object subjects such as Classes, Properties, (Instance and Class) Methods, Data types, (List and Array) Collections and Relationships are incorporated. In addition, Embedded and Dynamic SQL is included for every Object Data Structure. The discussion of Object Technology is concluded with a table of Object Calls and finally the last chapter ends Good Programming Concepts." Taking over 12 years to write, over 500 pages and over 700 code examples make it the perfect desk-top reference, the last Cache ObjectScript and MUMPS book you will ever need. Paul Bradney (Futurecode Ltd.) writes: "I've been a programmer for almost 30 years now and I'm finding your book very intuitive in learning about Cache, in both the new stuff which I'm a bumbling amateur at and even learning features about stuff I thought I already knew. " Ed de Moel (Author 'M[UMPS] by Example'): "In short, with the little I have read so far, I would recommend this book for both new students of the language, and for people who are moving from a non-Cache implementation to Cache, as well as for people who are starting to use the object extensions in Cache." From "Richard F. Walters (Author 'M Programming, A comprehensive Guide'): . . . I highly recommend it for Cache users." Rob Tweed of (M/Gateway Developments Ltd.) writes: "This book is most timely. MUMPS, for many years the ugly-duckling of the database world, is having something of a renaissance, driven by several factors . . . There are a lot of MUMPS applications in the commercial world, quietly performing their day-to-day responsibilities in a reliable and scalable way, and the above factors mean they aren't going away soon. On the contrary, enlightened developers are realising that there are new and exciting ways now available for extending the capabilities and reach of these "legacy" applications. Modern, web-based MUMPS applications are capable of being at the very leading edge in terms of their functionality, UI design, performance, and scalability: it is a very exciting time to be a MUMPS developer. All of this means two things: (1) we urgently need a new generation of MUMPS developers to take over the support, maintenance and extension of those applications; (2) there's a lot of work available for young developers who are willing to learn about MUMPS. Mike's book is a new and modern guide for anyone wanting to find out about this fascinating language and database to which I've been hopely addicted to since the early 1980s and for which I've been an unrelenting advocate. It gently guides the student through the basics and provides a comprehensive coverage of the advanced aspects of the language. Importantly, it also covers the extensions of the technology that is specific to Cache. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn MUMPS, or anyone wishing to provide guidance to new staff that needs to get up to speed with MUMPS. Soli Deo Gloria"

The work of the American philosopher Wilfrid Sellars continues to have a significant impact on the contemporary philosophical scene. His writings have influenced major thinkers such as Rorty, McDowell, Brandom, and Dennett, and many of Sellars basic conceptions, such as the logical space of reasons, the myth of the given, and the manifest and scientific images, have become standard philosophical terms. Often, however, recent uses of these terms do not reflect the richness or the true sense of Sellars original ideas.
This book gets to the heart of Sellars philosophy and provides students with a comprehensive critical introduction to his lifes work.
The book is structured around what Sellars himself regarded as the philosophers overarching task: to achieve a coherent vision of reality that will finally overcome the continuing clashes between the world as common sense takes it to be and the world as science reveals it to be. It provides a clear analysis of Sellars groundbreaking philosophy of mind, his novel theory of consciousness, his defense of scientific realism, and his thoroughgoing naturalism with a normative turn. Providing a lively examination of Sellars work through the central problem of what it means to be a human being in a scientific world, this book will be a valuable resource for all students of philosophy.
