An orphaned waif blossoms into a Texas rose when the New York Times–bestselling romance author’s Americana series heads to the Lone Star State. Danny and Coley McGuire have nothing left to lose. In a way, the death of their alcoholic father came as relief, but after their beloved mother passes away, the siblings have only themselves to rely on. Danny has always been protective of his innocent, nineteen-year-old sister. And he hopes to find a better life for her in Texas with their aunt Wilhelmina. When they finally reach the Slash S Ranch, Aunt Willy welcomes them with open arms and happily transforms Coley from a shy, slouching girl into a charming beauty. But the rest of the Savage clan isn’t quite as hospitable. In particular, Jase Savage—with his ice-blue eyes and the livid scar on his face—seems set on ignoring her very existence. Coley isn’t sure why he’s so angry, but she suspects it has something to do with the scar his grandfather calls “the mark of Cain.”

In 1975, Marvel Comics revived the X-Men, a failed title which hadn't used new material for half a decade. It was a marginal project in an industry then in crisis. Five years later, it was the bestseller in a revived comics market. Unusually in the comics world, one man, Chris Claremont wrote the comic over seventeen years, from 1975 to 1991, developing new characters such as Wolverine and Storm, and taking themes from Freudian psychology, Christian temptation narratives, Existentialist philosophy and the language of sub-cultural identity. Marvel's Mutants is the first book to be devoted to the aesthetics of these comics that laid the foundation for the worldwide X-Men franchise we know today. Miles Booy explores Claremont's recurrent themes, the evolution of his reputation as an auteur within a collaborative medium, the superhero genre and the input of the artists with whom Claremont worked. Also covered are the successful spin-off projects, which Claremont wrote: solo Wolverine mini-series and whole new teams of mutant superheroes.

Singing in Mandarin: A Guide to Chinese Lyric Diction and Vocal Repertoire is a comprehensive guide to unlocking the mysteries of Chinese contemporary vocal literature. In part one, Chu and Petrus focus on diction and language, providing detailed descriptions and exercises for creating the sounds of the language. They take a uniquely systematic approach, fusing together best practices from international music conservatories for diction study, with those for Chinese language learning. Part two outlines the historical context of Chinese vocal literature, chronicling the development of the language and its repertoire over the last one hundred years. Audio files narrated by native speakers demonstrating the sounds are also included. Singing in Mandarin provides guidance for both novices and those with previous experience singing or speaking Mandarin and is the first book of its kind to help bring the fascinating and previously inaccessible treasure of Chinese vocal music to Western audiences.
