Houston, Texas is a large city which makes lonely boys when they go there from small towns over in the mountains. Dewain and Bo were brothers who grew up in the mountains of Virginia and Kentucky. Seldom going to school and often robbing small stores for running cash. Their home was a small cabin in the mountains out of Pound, Virginia that offered little in the way of amenities beyond a roof and a bed. When they were about twenty years old they decided they needed to go to a larger city and see if there was a way to make money and not have to work too hard in the process. They applied at all the major industries they could find but their resumes didn't inspire many companies with a reason to hire them. As a result of their background they decided to visit the bars in town to see what the conversation was about. While having a beer after work one afternoon they happened to overhear a young man telling of his job at a bank loading lots of cash into cases for a company who came in to the bank regularly to take away large sums of cash. This was just what they liked to hear about. They began to work the young man by buying his beer and asking questions about all this cash. When the cash amount got so large they could hardly stand it they made a proposal to the young man to join them in an adventure to put some of that cash to better work. For ten years some of the finest law minds in the country searched for these two with no luck and no results. Two young black boys gave the whole scheme away.
Tess is from an extremely traditional pack. Returning to her pack after four years away at college, as an unmated female, she must participate in an old pack ritual: the Chase. Unmated wolves from her pack pursue her and the one who catches her gets the ultimate prize: her as a mate. However, Tess knows how males treat their mates and wants no part of it, determined to evade capture during the chase... but can she outrun and outsmart such strong males? Or will she be forced into mating with a male as bad, or perhaps worse, than her abusive father? * "The Chase" is a standalone werewolf romance short story (just under 10,000 words). It is part of a series, but no other books need to be read in order to understand the events in "The Chase." Other books in the "Wolves Among Us" series include "Broken," a novelette, and more are coming soon.

In The Practice of Electrocardiography, a master practitioner offers an organized approach to the art of EKG interpretation. Moving beyond the traditional approaches of many books that stress technical skill and pattern recognition, Dr. Blake shows how the four measurements needed to examine a tracing (orientation, duration, amplitude, and contour of each component) may be used with consistency and medical rigor for distinguishing normal and abnormal EKG patterns.
