In the year of grace 1308 Isabelle of France marries Edward II of England, becoming his Queen Consort. She soon discovers, however, that the king is not the man of her dreams but rather an unstable, erratic individual who prefers digging ditches and thatching roofs to running the country, coupled with a dangerous obsession for greedy and ambitious male favorites who do not like sharing the king's favors. Isolated and powerless in the English Court, Isabelle struggles to protect herself and her children as she slowly gains friends and allies. But how can she, a woman, prevent her adopted country from descending into the chaos of war between the barons and the king? And what is the meaning of the oubliette that haunts her dreams? Filled with meticulously researched detail, The Rogue Queen recounts the incredible true story of one woman who refused to accept society's limited role for her as it brings to vivid life the people and events of fourteenth century England.

In the explosive third volume of The Hundredth Queen Series, the queen of fire faces off against a demon of ice. Despite the odds, Kalinda has survived it all: Marriage to a tyrant. Tournaments to the death. The forbidden power to rule fire. The icy touch of a demon. That same demon now disguises itself as Rajah Tarek, Kalinda's late husband and a man who has never stopped haunting her. Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southern Isles. In Lestari, Kalinda's powers are not condemned, as they are in her land. Now free to use them to protect those she loves, Kalinda soon realizes that the demon has tainted her with a cold poison, rendering her fire uncontrollable. But the lack of control may be just what she needs to send the demon back to the darkest depths of the Void. To take back the empire, Kalinda will ally with those she distrusts--and risk losing those most loyal to her--to defeat the demon and bring peace to a divided nation.

The years when John Diefenbaker’s Progressive Conservatives were in office were among the most tumultuous in Canadian history. This book provides a fresh assessment of foreign policy in the Diefenbaker era to determine whether its failures can be attributed to the prime minister’s personality traits, particularly his indecisiveness, or to broader shifts in world affairs. Written by leading scholars who mine new sources of archival research, the chapters examine the full range of international issues that confronted the Diefenbaker government and probe the factors that led to success or failure and decision or indecision. This fascinating reconsideration of the Diefenbaker years challenges readers to push beyond the conventional and reassess the “Rogue Tory’s” record with fresh eyes.

This is the tale of a 23-year-old fairy who's gone Rogue. After graduating from Prince Town University with honors, she sacks her tame life in Fern Grottoe to live among the glumegs, or humans as they like to call themselves. Ari abhors the color pink, enjoys her liquor, breathes fire on occasion (even when she doesn't intend to!), and isn't afraid to take chances. Her world is a bag full of unexpected tricks where fairy jewelry, kaleidoscopes, tribal ponies and one ordinary piece of cake aren't what they first appear to be. Join her on her cobble-stoned journey of magic as she chases her dream of one day owning the neglected Mermaid Lagoon Lodge; enlists the wisdom of the castle-dwelling Dame Willowglow; fends off an evil, riddle-loving pirate bent on destroying her; and enchants the handsome, young glumeg, Sebastian, who just might be the destiny that she never knew existed... until now.
