RRP $15.99

This is a very simple book, written for those who just learned the basic rules of chess and are looking for a light, fast and easy to understand reading. / This book was written so that beginners of all levels can take a first step. Anyone can read this book, as some notion of the basic rules of the game are enough to understand it. Everything was done so that a nine years old child can enjoy the book alone, without adult help. / There is no theory. The book has only practical tests. / The book is based on diagrams, which work in pairs: on a page, a figure proposes a test; on the next page, another figure shows the response. Simple as that! / You do NOT need a chessboard to use the book: just sit down in a comfortable armchair and flip through the pages quietly (in an airplane, a restaurant, a living room, a taxi, a waiting room, on the subway or in your bed before sleeping). / You do NOT need to know the algebraic notation in this book: the answers are shown in the diagrams directly, by means of arrows. However, gradually this notation is presented because in the future you will read more advanced books that use it. / Attack and defense situations are here: so, whenever you are playing, in your turn you will be used to examine the chessboard in search of attacking opportunities and risks that require defense maneuvers. / Less is more! A book which is intended to be a first reading on chess must be small and must demand just a pair of hours. So, this book has just 130 pages and 60 tests selected and planned to induce a gradual learning process. / The problems are not difficult, especially the first twenty. It is expected that you can hit 80% of the book's problems, if not all. Gradually, very common tactical ideas, such as double attacks and discovered checks, will be presented naturally. On average you will take a minute per test. / At the end of the book, your vision of the game has started to improve, and so you can continue your training with other more advanced books (there is a list of reading suggestions for beginners on the last page of the book). / The only requirement is: never turn a page before you set your own guess! The book will only work if you actually try to solve each of the tests. / Thanks for your interest: I hope this book will help you to play well. / WARNING: this book is useful just for very beginners.

Archibald Salisbury, son of a viscount, war hero, and proficient in the proper ways of aristocratic society, has received orders for his most challenging mission: Genevieve, Duchess of Blakesley. How she inherited a duchy isn't his problem. Turning her into a perfect duchess is. But how can he keep his mind on business when her beauty entices him toward pleasure

It was impossible, unprecedented . . . and undeniably true. Genevieve is now a “duke”, or, rather, a duchess. So what is she to do when the ton eyes her every move, hoping she'll make a mistake Genevieve knows she has brains and has sometimes been told she has beauty, but, out of her depth, she calls on an expert. And what an expert, with shoulders broad enough to lean on, and a wit that matches her own. Archie is supposed to teach her to be a lady and run her estate, but what she really wants to do is unladylike-run into his arms.
