"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Even though I usually don't read romances, this one caught my interest and kept me reading. As opposed to most stories in which the happy ending means a wedding or at least an engagement, this story starts with a wedding.
Cecelia and Rand are forced to marry after a very steamy night in a shed. They have known each other all their lives since their families were very close. Rand was always carefree in his life and relationships and Cecelia was always headstrong and not afraid of anything while at the same time bred to be a proper English Lady. Now they are married and Rand inherits a title that brings him more responsibility than joy.
Rand's past keeps popping up in their married life in ways that are funny like with his wards, sometimes malicious like the gossip Cecelia hears, and sometimes dangerous like the things Rand did during time of the war with Napoleon.
And the love scenes were very steamy and frequent, making me wish I was Cecelia!
The story of their love affair and eventual marriage is a wonderful one. From trying to get know each other once again to learning to trust each other, the story evolves. Starting when Rand thinks he may be in love to when he eventually tells Cecelia that he does, the plot takes us through their ups and downs. The back story is also one that allows the reader to see more and more about who these people really are.
Diana Douglas once again has come up with a winner. Whether you like regency romance, or if you're like me and had never heard of it before, I am sure you'll enjoy this book.
