Webster defines intimacy as "a state of being intimate or familiarity." It also describes it as "something of a personal or private nature." For couples like Perry and Brianna, Lance and Amber, and Chris and Melanie, intimacy is all about seizing every possible moment and keeping the fires burning. Newlyweds like Craig and Tamara and married vets like Ben and Pam prove that there's something magical about throwing caution to the wind and surrendering to your deepest desires. But as Colin and Leslie prove, intimacy isn't confined to a relationship or even a bedroom. Intimacy can be shared by anyone at any time, even co-workers on a desktop. And for those who may have traded a sweet caress for financial success, Jasmine and Brent have a special recipe for rekindling a dying a flame! These are but a few of the characters you'll meet on this journey, but one there's one universal thing that binds them; the pursuit of intimacy! So sit back, relax, and allow this tantalizing collection of erotic tales to engulf you in passionate desires and while you're here, enjoy a preview of my upcoming novel, Blood Ties.
Susanah Shaw Romney locates the foundations of the early modern Dutch empire in interpersonal transactions among women and men. As West India Company ships began sailing westward in the early seventeenth century, soldiers, sailors, and settlers drew on kin and social relationships to function within an Atlantic economy and the nascent colony of New Netherland. In the greater Hudson Valley, Dutch newcomers, Native American residents, and enslaved Africans wove a series of intimate networks that reached from the West India Company slave house on Manhattan, to the Haudenosaunee longhouses along the Mohawk River, to the inns and alleys of maritime Amsterdam. Using vivid stories culled from Dutch-language archives, Romney brings to the fore the essential role of women in forming and securing these relationships, and she reveals how a dense web of these intimate networks created imperial structures from the ground up. These structures were equally dependent on male and female labor and rested on small- and large-scale economic exchanges between people from all backgrounds. This work pioneers a new understanding of the development of early modern empire as arising out of personal ties.
