The Italian Billionaire's New Year Bride
The Italian Billionaire's New Year Bride - Scarlet Wilson Phoebe and Matteo are a mix of sweet, salty and sexy. Ms. Wilson has a talent for exposing the best of a character at the worst of times and still allowing readers to fall in love with them. The Italian Billionaire's New Year Bride is a modern nod to the legend of fairy tale angst with a bouquet of heart and a bundle of fantasy. Cheers to new beginnings and happy endings.

great book and great characters
Italian Affair - Annie Seaton Brianna's whole life had turned upside down when she recieved the two page letter from the Italian lawyer. Three days earlier and her plan to spend twelve months in Australia writting her psychology book was gone. The letter led her to her biological mother's grave in Sydney. Her birth mother had died and Brianna had never got to meet her. Brianna had went through an agency two years ago to try to find her biological mother all the agency had told Brianna was she ahd lived in Sydney. Afte rthat Brianna had followed the paper trail herself. the letter had arrived too late but she now knew her mother's name. The letter not only told her of Rosa's death but about her mother's cottage she had inherited in Italy and the bizarre conditions attached to it. Brianna had to be married to get the cottage. Then Brianna webt to see her mother's grave from there she went to the airport. She then left ehr backpack in the taxi and it had the letter from the lawyer in it. All Brianna remembered was the office was on Lepari Island. Brianna had to find someone to play the part of her fake fiance. Brianna had four days to figure that out. All Brianna really wanted was to find out about her mother and why she had left Brianna thirty years ago. Tom was waiting for his flight to Italy. Tom's days of working in an office were over - careful planning and wise investments enabled him to do that. Tom felt woman were trouble even though his two brothers had their partners. Phil met Brianna at the airporty Tom thought they were a couple but actuallty they were brother and sister. Phil had looked out for Brianna since his parents had adopted her. Tom had beem sucked in by Jill so he was off women. Tom and Brianna rode the ferry together to the island. Brianna told him why she needs a fake fiance on the way to the island. He also agrees to go to the lawyer with her to be her interpreter. Then Tom's brother calls him and lest him know his aunt and mother have talked and his Aunt Carmen planned on playing matchmaker and when he was with her he told Carmen he was engaged to Brianna. Tom tells the lawyer he and Brianna are being married the next day or she would have lost her mothers cottage. He goes with Brianna to her mothers home and it is not a cottage bit a villa and it is now Brianna's. Since their is two bedromms in the villa Brianna offers to let Tom stay there so it looked right as they were getting married anyway. I loved this book. It was gret and an enjoyable read, also a great romance. I liked how the relatiionship grew even though Tom nor Brianna wanted a relationship much less marriage. I loved how Tom kept his word even when it involved marrying Brianna who he barely knew. This had my attention from the beginning and kept in until the end. I didn't want to put it down. I loved the plot and the pace. I loved the description in this book of the sland, the villa and so on. I loved Tom and Brianna together they really help each other change in a good way and they both benefitted from each other. I couldn't foind anything to complain about in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Italian Affair
Italian Affair - Annie Seaton For Tomas and Brianna love and trust does not come easily. Brianna yearns for a connection to her past. Tomas is running away from his. Will a stipulation in a will prove a blessing in disguise? Between the beautifully descriptive nod to scenic Italy and the hypnotizing waltz of relationship of convenience to the wings of love, The Italian Affair is a delight that is not to be missed.

Tomato Soup is Lava: "Time Ages in a Hurry" by Antonio Tabucchi, Antonio Romani (Translation)
Time Ages in a Hurry - Antonio Tabucchi,Martha Cooley,antonio romani

Tabucchi’s notion of time (e.g., aging) is a weird one. I grew up thinking it didn't really exist, that it was just something us humans invented as a measurement, like cm or mm. But I also used to think tomato soup was lava. Time is the only God, because it behaves in exactly the way any self-respecting God should: it continues to do its thing utterly dependably, and ignores everything else. The problem, I think, is that our scientific knowledge of time is so limited that in any discussion, we can't avoid drifting into metaphysics, which doesn't really add to the discussion. Regarding "time" as an entity, I feel we are like a caveman looking at the Mona Lisa and wondering how it was done what it could mean. We simply don't understand the extent of what we're looking at, and, like every generation, fall into the familiar trap that, because we are the here-and-now, we are the cleverest there's ever been, so we KNOW the answer, when, in fact, we're not much smarter than all the thousands of generations before us. The generations who follow us will behave in exactly the same way.

 

 

If you're into Aging and the Notion of Time in particular, read on.
