Yoga: Discipline of Freedom
The Yoga Sutra Attributed to Patanjali
Dating from about the third century A.D., the Yoga Sutra distills the essence of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga into fewer than two hundred brief aphorisms. It is the core text for any study of meditative practice, revered for centuries for its brilliant analysis of mental states and of the process by which inner liberation is achieved. Yet its difficulties are legendary, and until now, no translation has made it fully accessible. This new translation, hailed by Yoga Journal for its "unsurpassed readability," is by one of the leading Sanskrit scholars of our time, whose Bhagavad Gita has become a recognized classic. It includes an introduction to the philosophy and psychology underlying the Yoga Sutra, the full text with explanatory commentary, and a glossary of key terms in Sanskrit and English.
Governess for a Week
Blush: This is a sweet romance (kisses only, no sexual content) Governess Marian Greenway feels she's been hired by a lunatic when her employer demands she wear a revealing dress to dinner then introduces her to his relatives as his fiancée. She realizes his behavior may be rooted in his war wounds, so she agrees. Captain David Armstead, Lord Wyle, wants to fob off his interfering aunts, and a fake engagement seemed a good idea when he was in his cups. But the next day the woman he thought was a hired actress takes over his household and his children become devoted to her. After only a few days he is falling in love with Marian, but she has vowed never to marry a soldier. Marian and Wyle face the dilemma of what is more important, the welfare of the children or their own happiness. They find the answer when a threat to those children vaults them into a plot where only Marian's resourcefulness and Wyle's faith in her can bring them all home safe.
Leighton Stone, Earl of Longbridge, is used to danger. His years as a code breaker in Wellington's army have been filled with it, but all he wants at the end of the Peninsular War is to return to his estate and marry his childhood sweetheart, Maddie Westlake. Maddie is not a typical parson's daughter. She is weary of having to scheme against her parsimonious father to take care of Leighton's tenants, and she is tired of being taken for granted. When Leighton finally tracks her to the city of Bath he realizes he must woo her. Since he never trusted her with his secrets she does not trust him with her future. Music and memories draw the pair together while secret codes and conniving relatives almost split this engaging couple. Then they are drawn into a bizarre spy plot that only Maddie can solve.

He is trying to create the perfect woman with words since he has never met her until he encounters Grace.

Yet Brand is afraid to even mention marriage since Grace has been hurt in the past by managing men and unwanted offers. His heart has been bruised by fortune hunters as well. A murder at the Parthenon and a disaster backstage prompts them to sacrifice their reputations to save the play and bind their two broken hearts together forever.
