Eduarda Aivara dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” ir dzejnieka devītais krājums, kurā apkopoti un sakārtoti pēdējo piecu gadu laikā tapušie dzejoļi. Laiks nestāv uz vietas. Dažs cilvēks sakrītas, dažs piebriest, dažs uzkumpst, dažs sportodams staltāks top. Vecās drānas vairs neder, un jāmeklē atkal no jauna. Dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” rāda, ka atkal ir izdevies atrast izteiksmi, kas der kā uzlieta. Dzejas forma netraucē, to pat it kā nemaz nemana, un lasītāju tieši apņem gan īsta brieduma skaidrība, gan joprojām jauneklīgā spēja ļauties brīnumiem, gan rimta dzīves nenovēršamā traģisma apjausma. Jānis Elsbergs Savukārt autors norāda: “”Parādībās” esmu ievērojis savu kompozīcijas principu, radot kulminācijas ar satura un māksliniecisko izteiksmes līdzekļu palīdzību. Arī šajā grāmatā būtisku vietu ieņem dzejoļi ar gariem virsrakstiem, mans jaunievedums. Šādas formas dzejoļiem nav analogu ne tikai šeit, bet arī, cik man zināms, citur pasaulē.”

All of London is ablaze with rumors about the identity of Lady Scandal, a female brazen—and desperate—enough to advertise for a husband. But for Juliet, the young and surprisingly innocent widow, it’s her last option if she wants to avoid another marriage not of her choosing. Her prickly, pig-headed father has threatened to marry her off once again but this time Juliet is not without resources. She hopes the unentailed lands she possesses are enough to “bribe” some rich man to swoop in and save her from another unwanted union. And she has fingers and toes crossed she can find a potential bridegroom who will make her insides melt. Zeus Tanner, a self-made man from humble origins, has one driving goal—to reclaim his stolen birthright. When the scandalous advertisement catches his eye, Zeus believes he’s found the key to realizing his dream. But after surpassing the arduous task of obtaining an audience with the infamous Lady Scandal—who’s hidden herself behind a screen without explanation!—Zeus never imagined he’d be asked such a strange assortment of questions, given a test of manners over an atrocious scone, and ordered to disrobe and show her his chest—and “male parts”.
Zeus heartily refuses to comply with this last outrageous request. Un, he ponders out loud, the intriguing female is willing to trade her stockings and stays for the privilege… *MAD*WARNING* This Regency-era tale features flying slippers and stockings, a soaring silk neckcloth and silky undergarments, an unplanned eruption of epic proportions, and innocent licks that soon turn lust into love!
