When Ivy walks into his shop, he's instantly drawn to her shy smile and down to earth personality.
Tired of the dating scene, Lukas is ready to settle down, and he's hell-bent on making Ivy believe they can have the happily ever after they both dream about - with each other. Despite their age difference, the chemistry and love they share is undeniable. Lukas is everything Ivy never knew she wanted in a man, but can she trust her heart with a much younger man, and can they overcome the hurdles that life keeps throwing in their way?
A relationship experiment that lets experts find your perfect spouse? Sign me up. Sounds great, right? I thought so, too A devoted family man, loves kids. Clean cut, funny, smart, quiet, but a good communicator. Tall, blonde, sexy.
Intelligent, neat. Loves to travel. The concept was scary but exciting Marry a total stranger. Live together for six months.
Journal everything. All of it. But the goal is to commit to the experience and see if the relationship experts could put together the perfect matches. I've never been lucky in love.
This was my chance to find my soulmate, and hopefully, the man of my dreams. I couldn't wait to meet the man the experts felt was perfect for me, but my hopes were immediately shattered when I saw him at the altar. He was my worse nightmare all wrapped up in a bad boy attitude and tattoos.
Or was he? It's a serious social experiment run by a psychologist and it's all discrete. The characters are not on TV or followed around with cameras. They are alone. Evie I met him in a snowstorm We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck. We fought. We touched.
We fell. Storm She literally crashed into my life When I met her, the last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.
And I had to have her. All of her. Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.

EMBERS, the first book in the Playing With Fire series of novellas Emily Bowers is supposed to be having a relaxing summer vacation with her parents on.
Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past It is best read after reading Storm and also Vandal, Lukas, and Talon, as those characters have short cameos in this book. Considerable work on ember transport has been conducted, but much less work has been done to understand fire ember production and fire ember ignition of fuels.
Fire ember production from various fuel types under different conditions is the basis for validating fire behavior models and developing mitigating strategies in the wildland and WUI. Thus, the purpose of the proposed project is to investigate ember production from selected burning wildland and structural construction materials fuels under a range of environmental conditions through full-scale, intermediate-scale and small-scale laboratory experiments. Specific objectives include the following: 1 Determine the basic thermal decomposition and combustion properties at small scale of selected fuels under a range of heating rate, radiant heat flux, and MC levels; 2 Determine the production rate, mass, shape and dimensions of embers at full-scale from burning wildland and structural fuels under a range of wind, radiant heat flux, and MC levels; 3 Determine the travel distance of embers as a function of mass, shape and dimensions at full-scale under a range of wind speed and fuel MC levels; 4 Determine the burning duration and intensity of embers as a function of mass and shape at small and intermediate scales under a range of wind, radiant heat flux, and MC levels; and 5 Evaluate the impact of these properties on ignition potential and fire spread in the WUI.
The proposed fundamental research will improve our understanding of ember production and characteristics under realistic wildfire conditions. The results from this project will benefit various agencies with a mission to mitigate the fire damage in the wildland and WUI. See the final report and other related publications.
