The Billionaire's Christmas: A Holiday Novella (The Billionaire's Deal Book 5)
The intensely steamy sequel to the bestselling new adult novel
The weather has cooled, but the passion between Kat Wilder and Blake Sterling blazes hotter than ever. Kat couldn't be happier ... except for one little thing.

She's looking forward to Christmas with her billionaire CEO fiancé. But the holiday plays a leading role in Blake's darkest memories, and he wants nothing to do with it.

So Kat makes a deal of her own. Give Christmas a shot this year. If it gets to be too much, you can get back in control with me. I'll be yours, completely yours, and you can do whatever you want with me. If you still hate it, we'll never celebrate it again.

Can Kat's love and submission transform Christmas from pain to pleasure for Blake? Or will they be forced to live without the season's joy forever?

The Billionaire's Christmas is a special holiday novella featuring Kat and Blake, the couple from The Billionaire's Deal.

Ego Is the Enemy

 “While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I’ve found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.” —from the prologue
 
Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.
 
Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his­tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con­quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.
 
In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.”

Colombia - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture
Colombia is a magical country, full of spectacular varied landscapes, rare ecosystems, succulent tropical fruits, salsa and cumbia music, and kind, fun-loving people. The modern culture is a synthesis of Spanish, indigenous, and African traditions, evident in the music, the food, and Barranquilla’s famous Carnaval. The country’s major cities are modern and cosmopolitan, with an international style and consumerism that makes them feel more like cities in the USA than Latin America. Yet, five minutes into the countryside, its distinct rural charms reveal a slower and more bucolic past.
 
In the collective imagination, Colombia is exotic, lawless, and dangerous—an illegal narcotics trade and the ongoing armed conflict have contributed to its bad-boy image. But things are changing, and there is so much more than that.
 
Entrenched social inequality has led to strife, manifest in the long-lived left- and rightwing rebel movements and a cycle of appalling violence that has saturated four decades with an undeclared civil war. And still, the Colombians are animated, lighthearted and fun—always ready to laugh and enjoy the moment. They have found strength in each other, in their families, and closest friends who are the cornerstones of their lives. 
 
Culture Smart! Colombia shows how the country’s rough geography and tumultuous history have shaped modern values and attitudes. It looks at the public realm and at life at home with the family. It introduces you to Colombia’s distinct and delicious cuisine, and reveals what people think about each other, their neighbors, and foreigners. There is advice on the safest ways to get around; on how business is done; and how Colombians communicate. Culture Smart! Colombia explains the intricacies of a culture that is both modern and steeped in tradition, international and regional, cosmopolitan and agrarian, very rich and very poor, and after more than four decades of undeclared civil war is happily emerging from tough times and getting ready for the future.

The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribes
The Unconquered tells the extraordinary tale of a journey into the deepest recesses of the Amazon to track one of the planet's last uncontacted indigenous tribes. In this gripping first-person account of adventure and survival, the author follows a 34-man team into the Amazon's uncharted depths, discovering the rainforest's secrets while moving ever closer to a possible encounter with the mysterious flecheiros - or "People of the Arrow" - a seldom-glimpsed tribe of deft archers known to defend their lands with showers of deadly arrows before melting back into the forest shadows.

While on assignment for National Geographic, author Scott Wallace joined the brooding and charismatic explorer Sydney Possuelo on a quixotic mission: penetrate the jungle redoubts of the Arrow People, gather crucial information about them, and return to civilization without contacting the tribe. As head of Brazil's Department of Isolated Indians, Possuelo seeks to protect the Arrow People and their rainforest homeland from the ravages of the advancing frontier. But the information he needs to safeguard them can only be gleaned by entering a world of darkness and danger beneath the forest canopy, to seek out the untamed tribesmen while at the same time trying to avoid them.

Drawing on lessons from anthropology and the Amazon's own convulsed history, Wallace uncovers clues as to who the Arrow People might be, how they have managed to endure as one of the last unconquered tribes, why they seem to want to have nothing to do with us, and why Possuelo fights so passionately to see that their wishes are respected. In this tale of high adventure and survival, we come to know the unforgettable Possuelo as he wages an uphill battle, risking his life to protect these mysterious people and the species-rich rainforests on which they - and all of us - depend.
