Evolutionary theory is driving forward our understanding of human behaviour like never before. Yet, many of us lack a firm grasp of the basics of the theory of evolution - a clear picture of what evolution is, and how and why it operates. But such clarity is essential if we are to fully understand and explore the fascinating behavioural questions that lie before us. Evolution and Genetics for Psychology lays out the conceptual toolkit one needs in order to think in evolutionary terms - and to apply this thinking to any subject. With the toolkit firmly in place, it goes on to show how these key concepts are applied to issues of human behaviour, from sex to social relationships, to learning. Evolution and Genetics for Psychology does not set out to teach evolutionary psychology or behavioural genetics, but explores the key fundamental principles on which such disciplines are based. If you need to understand what heritability really means, what the difference is between a gene and an allele, or whether evolutionary and social explanations are compatible, this book is the survival guide you need.

Warm, sultry Louisiana nights, a sexy-to-her-stilettoed-toes blues singer, one hot-under-the-collar fireman, and a vengeful arsonist. Explosions guaranteed! New Orleans, the Big Easy-until your life and family are threatened. Suspicious fires have struck Torey Hart's family twice in two years, and her father tops arson-investigator Lieutenant Jack Stevens' suspect list. As Jack probes for evidence to prove Hart guilty, his feelings for Torey complicate the investigation.
Feelings can have no place in his profession, and he works equally hard to avoid them in his personal life. And yet, the blaze that destroyed Torey's home and her father's business is nothing compared to the heat, the sizzle that ignites between himself and Torey. The true arsonist creeps ever closer, and the danger becomes deadly. Can Torey stay alive long enough, and lure Jack close enough to teach him to love and trust again?

In this story about Tom Morrow, Tom has agreed to help Khrestos find the Isle of Noam and his lost love Raven La Morna. But to the old man Taidg, with his dog Madra, the legend of Raven is well known through stories told round the fireside, of his childhood home, by his mother. He often wished that he could be the old man, with the dog, who it was foretold would witness her castle rise out of the sea when the circle of ravens were seen at the time of the Spring Equinox. His wish was granted early one morning when he saw the ravens circling the very spot of the legend. It was just before he heard a mighty roar as the castle emerged from the sea exactly as his mother had recounted so long ago. That day Taidg's life changed forever. Not only was his wish granted but he became a good and true friend to Raven La Morna who invited him to come and live at the castle of Noam. She pined for Khrestos too. Taidg assured her that one day he would come in a ship that bore large white sails. Khrestos did come, as predicted, but without Tom Morrow. Because of one of the legendary storms whipped up by The Abbess Mariah, Tom had been washed overboard. Luckily he was rescued by Sian, the Mermaid, who took him to Raven Castle under the sea. Khrestos and all on board the ship, The Star of The Sea, thought Tom was lost. At Raven Castle, Tom learned much. He discovered the lost city of Atlantis, amongst others, before being taken to the Isle of Noam much to the chagrin of The Abbess Mariah. The story continues.
