Chains

When a novice tiptoes into the world of dominance, sparks of passion become dangerous flames. Struggling journalist Cleo Garcia was chosen to investigate the members of an exclusive club. Her first instinct is to turn down the assignment, but when her boss offers to pay medical benefits for her sick sister, Cleo finds the offer too good to refuse. When the party turns out more intense than expected, she leaves in a panic, and accidentally slides into the wrong car. . . For Marcus Everett, his secrets are his life, and he has no desire to lure people into it. He prefers they come to him, and in a way, that's what Cleo did when she slid into his car at one of his events. There's something familiar about her, and although he wants to use that knowledge to draw her into his world, he can't. It must be her decision. Secrets are shared, lines are drawn, and limitations are discussed before either of them realize who the other is, but by then, it's too late. Cleo is falling in love with Marcus. When forced to choose between her heart, her job, and her sister's wellbeing, what will happen when it turns out Cleo isn't the only one digging up hidden secrets? Chains is a riveting romantic suspense with lots of steamy scenes. It's recommended for audiences over the age of eighteen as some situations may be distressing for some readers.

Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work

Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work

All of us, as Canadians, are touched throughout our lives by some aspect of social welfare, either as recipients, donors, or taxpayers. But despite the importance of the social network in our country, there has been no single source of information about this critical component of our society. Even professionals in the field of social work or social services have not had a comprehensive volume addressing the myriad features of this critical societal structure. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work fills this need. Over five hundred topics important to Canadian social work are covered, written by a highly diverse group of social workers covering all aspects of the field and all areas of the country. Practitioners, policy makers, academics, social advocates, researchers, students, and administrators present a rich overview of the complexity and diversity of social work and social welfare as it exists in Canada. The principal finding from this project underscores the long-held perception that there is a Canadian model of social work that is unique and stands as a useful model to other countries. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work will be an important source of information, both to Canadians and to interested groups around the world. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work is available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.
