“Utterly swoony…an endearing reminder that true love can change the world” —J. Elle, New York Times bestselling author of Wings of Ebony To save a galactic kingdom from revolution, Kindred mind-pairings were created to ensure each and every person would be seen and heard, no matter how rich or poor… Joy Abara knows her place. A commoner from the lowly planet Hali, she lives a simple life—apart from the notoriety that being Kindred to the nobility’s most infamous playboy brings. Duke Felix Hamdi has a plan. He will exasperate his noble family to the point that they agree to let him choose his own future and finally meet his Kindred face-to-face. Then the royal family is assassinated, putting Felix next in line for the throne…and accused of the murders. Someone will stop at nothing until he’s dead, which means they’ll target Joy, too. Meeting in person for the first time as they steal a spacecraft and flee amid chaos might not be ideal…and neither is crash-landing on the strange backward planet called Earth. But hiding might just be the perfect way to discover the true strength of the Kindred bond and expose a scandal—and a love—that may decide the future of a galaxy.

Following a long period of comparative neglect, Alzheimer’s disease has come to be a major focus of scientific research, and in recent years considerable progress has been made towards understanding the basic molecular mechanisms of the disease and toward developing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Here, the latest information on Alzheimer’s disease is presented, including topics such as the mechanisms of degeneration of neurons with neurofibrillary tangles, the formation of brain amyloid in Alzheimer’s disease, risk factors, diagnosis and pharmacological approaches. The chapters are of a high standard, reflecting the fact that the authors are internationally renowned in their own specialist field and the book will have a wide appeal to psychopharmacologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neurobiologists and neurochemists who seek a broad overview of the present thinking in the field.
