The Battlefield:A Baptist Awakening Cassandra Carter
She´s pregnant without nookie. Someone slap her ass and call her Mary… A ´guest´ of the Lathar, Jess has become used to being at court, especially as it allows her to be close to a certain tall, handsome healer. But Laarn might as well not know she exists, far more interested in his tests and her genetic code than her as a woman… maybe. A hot encounter after a combat trial prove that Laarn HAS noticed her, more than noticed her. But before they can act on the attraction between them, Laarn is called away to the battlefield leaving Jess all alone at court. Not wanting to both any of the other healers when she feels unwell, Jess gets treatment from the automated systems in Laarn´s lab, only to get worse days later. She´s pregnant, without a sniff of between the sheets action and worse, there´s a bunch of fanatics loose in the palace trying to kill her and her baby… He aches to claim her, but saving his people must come first. To do that, he can´t waste time with a female… Lord Healer for the Lathar, Laarn must find a way to save his people from the plague that claimed all their women a generation ago. Now it speeding up and if he doesn´t do something, the Lathar will be gone in a generation. Salvation arrives in the form of humanity, descendants of a lost Lathar colony, who might just hold the key to reversing the damage to the Lathar genetic code. His scars mark his rank, but will they also lose him the woman he loves? Laarn never thought anything of his scars before. In his culture they mark his rank as the best healer in the empire, but he starts to cover them when Jessica, the delicate little human female who holds his interest, won´t look at them. He wants her, but his duty lies elsewhere until everything changes… Between a pregnancy, mating marks and a fanatic out to kill the woman he loves, can Laarn remain detached enough to do his duty… or will he give into emotion and save his heart?
5 brilliant action-packed modern war short stories that takes you straight to the battlefield! They were a group of eight men on the run if they could be called that. They were actually what was left of their company. Most of them had been killed, a few others had been captured. There had been three thousand men that came into the city of Jastapor after taking its boundary and some streets. Then, they ran straight into an encirclement that had cost them most of the army and most of their superior commanders. Sergeant Carter, Sergeant Miller, Sergeant Roland, Sergeant Crawford, Captain Butterfield and three new recruits found themselves separated from the army as the fighting raged on and they ran for cover anywhere they could find it. They had to find whatever was left of their army and join up with it otherwise, they would be tagged deserters...
They warned Elena Petrova, a journalist, to drop her story. She didn´t. They raped her. She didn´t give up. They killed her and buried her body where no man could find it. Unfortunately for them, one man did. Special Forces operative Zeb Carter is back. This time it´s personal. Zeb Carter discovers the woman´s body in a remote part of the country, while on vacation.

He shuts down threats to U.S. national security. In his business, back off is an order he issues.

For over a quarter of a century, award-winning journalist Henry Bradsher reported stories from around the world. In this lively and engaging account, Bradsher recounts episodes from a distinguished career that took him to the Himalayas, the jungles of Bhutan, Kremlin caviar receptions, China´s Forbidden City, and the battlefields of Vietnam. Throughout, Bradsher emphasizes the unpredictability of a correspondent´s life and the strains, perils, and privileges of standing witness to momentous world events. In Moscow he covered the downfall of Nikita Khrushchev, and he later suffered the KGB bombing of his car in response to his tenacious reporting. His incisive coverage from Hong Kong led Chinese officials to label Bradsher as ´´the most despicable´´ journalist. But after a power shift, they welcomed him as the first American journalist allowed to work in China in over a year. Bradsher predicted and reported Bangladesh´s independence struggle, and he worked in the Middle East, covering Egyptian-Israeli peace arrangements. Access to the events that shaped the Cold War also led to Bradsher´s meeting many world leaders, including Nehru, Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev, Zhou Enlai, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Anwar Sadat, and Menachem Begin. Although Bradsher´s reporting riled officials in Moscow, Beijing, and even the United States - prompting Henry Kissinger´s attempts to thwart the publication of his reports - history has proven its accuracy. Bradsher´s relentlessness in his own work accompanied a profound respect for fellow journalists worldwide who endanger themselves to keep the public informed. The book is published by Louisiana State University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Chester. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/073135/bk_acx0_073135_sample.mp3.
