Handsome, wealthy, and well-born, Jonas Tallent has everything a gentleman needs to enjoy London society to the fullest...and he has. He's played cards until dawn, flirted with eligible young ladies, and made love to some ineligible ones. But now he's restless and bored with the mindless frivolity and careless pleasure, so it's with a sense of relief that he takes up the reins of his family's estate in rural Devon. His most pressing need is to hire a new manager for the inn; the center of village life. Such a small task, yet he discovers few decent applicants are willing to live in a quiet country backwater. Then genteel but impoverished Miss Emily Beauregard applies for the position. Jonas's initial response is an emphatic "no!" Ladies, especially one as attractive as Emily, belong in the ballroom or the bedroom, not running an inn. But with no alternatives, he grudgingly allows Emily to try, and she rapidly proves herself worthy, resurrecting the inn with tact and skill. But Emily has a secret. It's not only the need to provide for herself and her orphaned siblings that has brought her to Devon. She's surreptitiously searching for a family treasure hidden in the village, the only clues to its location a cryptic rhyme handed down through the generations. Emily is determined to solve the puzzle, find the treasure, and reinstate her family to its rightful place in society. But Em hasn't bargained on Jonas. His experience is temptation, his attentions irresistible, and he's determined to aid her in her quest. He eventually persuades her to trust him, and together they unravel the clues. But someone else is watching, waiting, and once the family legacy is unearthed, the villain strikes, threatening Em, her family, and the love she and Jonas have discovered in each other's arms. 1.

On Self-Esteem Need-to-Belong and Social Ballroom Dancing ab 59.9 EURO
Low self-esteemed people face interpersonal challenges: They doubt their value as relational partners and project these doubts on future relations. This study examined the correlation between:ballroom dancers' self-esteem (SE) & their need-to-belong (NTB) and with the number of months/years they have practiced social ballroom dancing (SBD). The recent increased interest in ballroom dancing among internationally diverse populations has not been adequately studied. Very little attention has been dedicated to identifying the possible relational benefits that arise through the practice of SBD. This study was designed to address this gap in the knowledge base in real-life setting among general adult-population. Interestingly, the majority of participants in this study (245 of the 307) reported that ballroom dancing improved their SE. This perception was significantly correlated with participants' SE (p value = .004), that is, participants who held the view that SBD improved their SE, indeed showed higher levels of SE. It is hoped that the findings of this study will spur the scientific and clinical communities to further explore SBD as a resource for studying interpersonal functioning.
