Dark, moving and original, a story of family, survival, and getting on with life... Flynn Sinclair understands pack loyalty – for years as his Alpha father's enforcer, he has done things in the name of duty that he can't ever forget. But the vast expanse of Alaska offers him a peace he's never known. Alone, removed from pack life, he can focus on his research and try to forget his life before. But duty has a way of inviting itself in, and Flynn finds himself doing two reckless things in one week: leaving the safety of Alaska to save his brother Connor's life, and unwittingly falling in love with Evie Thompson, a woman who doesn't deserve to be drawn into his terrifying world. Connor carries news of their father's descent into madness, and it looks like neither geography nor Flynn's attempts at disengagement will put off a confrontation. Flynn had finally begun to believe that he might deserve something good in his life – something like Evie – but to move forward in the light, he must first reconcile with the dark.

" "Warning: this book is NOT a new-age self-help softy. Perhaps it's the subject that initially enchanted me. I personally wish I had thought of having a Conversation with MY Womb! Giuditta Tornetta did think of it, and she rendered her trailblazing idea into a book that is at once practical, and a wildly esoteric page-turner. " -Midwife Robin Lim, 2011 CNN Hero, International Alexander Langer Award Recipient. "Conversations with the Womb is a guide back to yourself. It is time for this material to inspire and influence today's woman." -Kelly Brogan MD, Holistic Women's Health. "Conversations with the Womb is a treasure. A perfect way to connect with the profound wisdom we all carry inside." -Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause. Often referred to as the well-spring of creation, the womb is the epicenter of a woman's relationship to the divine. Conversations With the Womb is a provocative rediscovery of ancient feminine power. Using the Nine Chakras of Creation as a road map to transforming one's personal history, women are encouraged to begin a profound and ongoing conversation with their most primal organ. Unburdened by their histories the immense creative force within the womb can be harnessed to manifest our heart's desire."

46 Meal Recipes to Help Reduce Menstrual Cramps: Eliminate Pain and Discomfort Using All Natural Food Remedies By Joe Correa CSN Most women before and during their period suffer from some kind of abdominal and back pain, a premenstrual syndrome that comes in a variety of symptoms like irritability, clumsiness, headache, sore and tender breasts, nausea, diarrhea, bloating, acne, etc. This book will help you learn how to deal with your body and how to reduce these unpleasant symptoms. Menstrual symptoms appear 7-10 days before the beginning of menstruation and usually, pass a few days after the period starts. These symptoms vary from cycle to cycle and from woman to woman. But one thing is for sure - every woman on the planet has experienced some of these symptoms at least once in their lifetime. It depends on the hormonal balance, but also on other factors such as diet, stress, and lifestyle. This is why it is extremely important to get to know your body better and to follow your menstrual cycle by recording it on a calendar and observe how your body behaves. Diet against PMS! To avoid unpleasant symptoms of PMS in the second half of the cycle, be careful with what you eat. Avoid too much sugar, processed food, soft drinks, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and too many fats. Correcting your diet during these 14 days before period will avoid and reduce the unpleasant side effects of PMS and even pain. In the second half of the menstrual cycle eat more fish and healthy fats, since studies have shown that this can alleviate symptoms of PMS. Women suffering from menstrual pain have a low level of fatty acid in the body. Interestingly, women in Japan rarely suffer from PMS because of a diet rich in fish and healthy fats.
