One of Daphne Wade's guilty pleasures is to watch the Duke of Tremore as he works, shirtless, on the excavation site of his ducal estate. Anthony Courtland is by far the most exciting and handsome man she has ever known, and she dreams of one day being able to speak with him without getting tongue tied. Anthony, meanwhile, only sees Daphne as a hard worker on his excavation team. He considers her a plain young lady and says so in a careless remark to a friend, unaware that Daphne is outside the library door, her heart shattering to pieces. So Daphne decides she will not be so silly any longer. She begins to be tutored in the social graces, forcing Anthony to see the beauty who has been right in front of his eyes.

Comedy and Law in America

Guilty Pleasures

Few people associate law books with humor. Yet the legal world--in particular the American legal system--is itself frequently funny. Indeed, jokes about the profession are staples of American comedy. And there is actually humor within the world of law too: both lawyers and judges occasionally strive to be funny to deal with the drudgery of their duties. Just as importantly, though, our legal system is a strong regulator of humor. It encourages some types of humor while muzzling or punishing others. In a sense, law and humor engage a two-way feedback loop: humor provides the raw material for legal regulation and legal regulation inspires humor. In Guilty Pleasures, legal scholar Laura Little provides a multi-faceted account of American law and humor, looking at constraints on humor (and humor's effect on law), humor about law, and humor in law. In addition to interspersing amusing episodes from the legal world throughout the book, the book contains 75 New Yorker cartoons about lawyers and a preface by Bob Mankoff, the cartoon editor for the New Yorker.

Guilty Pleasures

Secrets. Lies. And a mysterious house… Heiress Willow Jackson didn’t do commitment. Her father was on his fifth…or maybe sixth…wife, so Willow had seen too often how lives could be destroyed by marriage and infidelity. But when she discovers that she’s inherited a house…from a grandmother her father hadn’t ever told her about, Willow is determined to learn more about this mysterious woman. What she wasn’t prepared for was the tall, intimidating man snapping at her from the doorway of the creepy house. Cooper Adams stepped into Willow’s life, big and terrifyingly handsome in a scary, sexy way. He wasn’t ready for the intense awareness and yearning that she would provoke inside of him. And Willow definitely wasn’t prepared for the sweet, caring way that Cooper took care of his grandmother, showing her that men weren’t all idiots and jerks. But could Willow take a chance on Cooper? Did she dare to uproot her whole life, knowing that marriage and love were only temporary things?
