She couldn't bear the unexpected truth Sara gladly accepted the offer of acting as companion to her youthful Aunt Harriet. Her father had recently died, and she welcomed the solace the English countryside offered. But life in Harriet's household proved far from peaceful. Most disturbing to Sara was Jude, a blunt and darkly seductive man. Why had Harriet hired him? And what did he do? Then understanding dawned on her: Jude was her aunt's lover. Yet she couldn't deny the deep attraction she herself felt for him—an attraction he seemed to reciprocate!

The History of Duelling in two volumes is a historical work by British author J. G. Millingen. In this chronological account, author deals with the custom and tradition of duels from the dark age of civilization to the closest examples in modern age. Concerning the dueling among the ancients, author offers examples of Achilles fighting Hector, Turnus and Aeneas and other examples from Greek and Roman history. However, he makes a distinction between these legendary combat duels and later personal duels which were prompted by different causes and reasons. Religion and love are emphasized as two main triggers that caused numerous duels throughout the history. Due to sources and documents, the book mostly deals with duels in France and Britain, but also covers this practice and tradition in other European parts and countries.

Francis Willughby's Book of Games, published here for the first time, is a remarkable work and an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in early modern social history. Dating from the 1660s, it was left unfinished when the writer died in 1672 at the age of 36. Nevertheless, Willughby's manuscript, even in its unpolished form is a goldmine of detail providing a snapshot of mid seventeenth century life, language and culture. The manuscript itself lists a wide variety of sports, games and pastimes, including football, hurling, card games, tennis and children's games. As well as providing rules and a description of the various games (often with accompanying sketches to explain particular points) there are numerous fascinating snippets of related information (such as the care of fighting cocks), that bring the subject to life, whilst the section on children's games is particularly poignant. Besides the intrinsic interest of the subject matter, the fact that Willughby embarked on the project from a scientific perspective adds to the value of the book. Willughby had been admitted to the Royal Society in 1661 and for a number of years prior to that had been collaborating with the naturalist John Ray. It is clear that Willughby's Book of Games was highly influenced by his scientific pursuits and was an extension of his natural history work, utilising the same skills of systematic observation, description and classification. Providing not only a word-for word transcription of the Book of Games, this volume also contains a host of interpretative material to complement the original data. As well as a biography of Willughby and a detailed description of his manuscript, a substantial glossary of games and obsolete terms is provided, together with a bibliography of Willughby's literary remains and more general reference works. Taken together, this publication provides an unparalleled resource for scholars of early modern England.
