To Serve My Country to Serve My Race:The Story of the Only African-American WACS Stationed Overseas During World War II Brenda L. Moore
Three classic, must-read novels from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson´s The Protectors series, collected here in one volume for the first time! Forged in Desire When good girl Margo Connelly becomes Lamar ´´Striker” Jennings´s latest assignment, she knows she´s in trouble. And not just because he´s been hired to protect her from an underworld criminal. The reformed bad boy´s appeal is breaching all her defenses, and as the threats against her increase, Margo isn´t sure which is more dangerous: the gangster targeting her, or the far too alluring protector tempting her to let loose. Though Striker´s now living on the right side of the law, he´s convinced his troubled past keeps Margo out of his league. But physical chemistry explodes into full-blown passion when they go on the run together. Surrendering to desire could be a deadly distraction—or finally prove that he´s the only man qualified to keep her safe, and win her love. Seized by Seduction From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She´s a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her—the closer, the better—as she´s drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry. Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there´s no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar´s strength and skill. If he can´t risk the heart he´s always held in check, they´ll both lose for good... Locked in Temptation Police detective Joy Ingram´s connection to elite security expert Stonewall Courson is instant. Undeniable. Electric. But her commitment to protect and serve has always come first. Everything else is secondary—especially when she uncovers an underground surrogate baby-making ring. Joy can´t risk a distraction during the most important case of her career, not even one as sexy as reformed ex-con Stonewall. There are few things Stonewall values more than a strong woman. But when Joy´s investigation draws her into a deadly conspiracy that goes deeper than she ever imagined, he must convince her that he´s the best man to protect her. And while he puts his life on the line to save hers, the insatiable attraction between them becomes the one danger neither of them can escape. Titles originally published in 2017
1. ´´Jo Serves Brenda After the Bar´´: While out one night Jo saw a really sexy black woman sitting at the bar. She had long black hair and really long sexy legs. Although she was sitting down, Jo could see she was a tall lady and Jo liked that. Jo smiled at the woman and she smiled back so Jo approached her. 2. ´´Sammy Tricks Sophia´´: ´´Oh please, Sammy, you won´t say anything to my husband will you?´´ Sophia asked in a begging way. ´´Maybe I will; maybe I won´t,´´ Sammy replied, smiling at Sophia. Sammy walked slowly toward Sophia looking her directly in the eyes, and when she got close enough she put her lips to Brenda´s, she kissed her. 3. ´´She Punishes Her Cheating Husband´´: Jacob tugged on the restraints, but they wouldn´t budge. His wife Tina stood at the foot of the bed looking over him, smiling smugly. In a dirty fantasy, this might have been the dream scenario; his wife and another woman tying him to the bed and exploiting him until he begged for sweet mercy, but this wasn´t a fantasy. This was real life and it was happening after his wife had caught him fooling around with another woman. 4. ´´Jenna Makes Her Husband Serve a Shemale´´: The blonde had now begun to recover from being caught and sat up in the bed. She reached for her shirt that was lying on the floor and put it on. ´´Well, I better go, now, Stevie,´´ she said, tossing her long bleached hair back from her face. ´´I can see that you´ve got some things to talk about.´´ Jenna stared at the woman in outrage. ´´Stevie, I hope that you didn´t pay her too much. She looks a bit on the used side to me,´´ Jenna said tartly. ´´Pay me?´´ the blonde shouted. ´´Lady, who the hell do you think you are?´´ ´´I think I am the wife of the man that you were just playing with as well as the owner of this home,´´ Jenna shouted back. ´´Stephen, seriously, what were you thinking? We will have to burn the bed and everything else that this piece of garbage has infected. Of course, I would 1. Language: English. Narrator: K. Krutz.

The authors systematically explore the new range of ethical issues which have emerged in recent years, including the significant impact on approaches to ethical problems which resulted from the Sarbanes–Oxley Act, the financial crisis of 2008, and the move to replace GAAP with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The audiobook begins by investigating the nature and purpose of accounting and follows with a brief study of the nature and use of ethical principles in determining accountants’ responsibilities; it examines the ethical imperatives that bind professionals and the specific principles and rules that various accounting codes dictate. Next, the audiobook explores the major types of practices in which accountants engage – auditing, managerial accounting, and tax accounting – and the responsibilities associated with those practices. The new topics are addressed in a section which highlights the debates over the use of fair–value accounting and principles– versus rules–based standards. Ronald Duska is The Charles Lamont Post Chair of Ethics and the Professions at the American College as well as the Director of the Center for Ethics in Financial Services. He is the author and editor of several books including, Contemporary Issues in Business Ethics, Ethics for the Financial Services Professional (with Julie Ragatz, 2008), and Moral Development: From Piaget to Kohlbergm.

How can we evolve through adversity and change our lives? It is one of life´s great questions. In Evolving Through Adversity: How to Overcome Obstacles, Discover Your Passion, and Honor Your True Self, author Seconde Nimenya answers the above question and demonstrates that the best way to overcome adversity is to go through it. Through her own life story, Seconde explains how to apply this theory by what she calls the RRU (reflect, rectify, and unite) model. Her personal credo to evolve through all adversity and achieve any desired outcome is to take time to reflect on who you are, then assess your situation, rectify what you don´t like, and reinforce or unite what you do like. Seconde details her life story, from walking hundreds of miles to school across mountains to being struck by lightning and having to hide in the bushes when a civil war erupted in her native country. Then she underwent culture shock as she came to North America and realized how her cultural background both helped and hindered her in evolving into the woman she wanted to be. Seconde´s story serves as a source of reflection for listeners about their own lives. Listeners of this book will be inspired and empowered first to achieve their personal peace and then to help create peace in their communities and their world. They will learn how they can evolve past adversity; forgive themselves and others; and discover, love, and honor who they are.
