Arkæologien og etnologien har været med mig de seneste år. Derfor er min påstand at Nålebindingsteknikken er lige så gammel som vævning, der kunne udvikles fra det tidspunkt hvor mennesker blev fastboende som agedyrkere og kvægavlere. De første fåreracer behøvedes ikke at blive klippet, da de selv fældede ulden, som vi kender det fra moskusokser på Grønland. I dag kender vi bl.a. til Soay-fåret fra de Ydre Hebrider og Mongoliet. At Nålebinding må være brugt af mennesker gennem mere end 100.000 år kan nu ikke være en umulig tanke, dersom der stadig bliver fremstillet bæreposer, fiskenet og andet i fx plante-materiale. Teknikken er blevet og bliver brugt jorden rundt, efterhånden som mennesker har befolket de enkelte kontinenter. Specialiseringen er dog først og fremmed nødvendiggjort af klimaet i Norden, i Skandinavien og de Baltiske områder, samt den vestlige del af Rusland. For at forgængeligt materiale som uld, pileflet og træting skal kunne overleve i flere tusind år, må der være optimale forhold, der gør, at disse ting ikke nedbrydes. The Archaeology and Ethnology has been with me for the last couple of years. My allegation is therefore: The technique of Nålebinding is just as old as weaving, which could be developed from the time where human beings became permanent settlers taking care of agriculture and livestock. The oldest race of sheep is the Soay from Outer Hebrides Islands in the Atlantic Sea west of Scotland and another race still living in Mongolia. These old races throw their wool just like the Muskox in Greenland. Nålebinding must have been used by man for more than 100.000 years, as they had the need to carry and keep various things - and furthermore you can find the technique still in use all over the world. Often it is various kinds of grasses and lianas. The special use here in the Northern Europe was necessary due to the cold climate. Unfortunately items made out of perishable materials cannot last for long as metals. This is why only a few things have survived. Archaeologists know that only 5% of all kinds of utensils have survived since the Iron Age. But still finds can provide knowledge of what kind of live humans have had for several millenniums.

The Black Dagger Brotherhood is back.
_______________

A vampire and a scientist's fates are passionately entwined in a race against time . . .

In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled - but Murhder's insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.

Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.

As Murhder and Sarah's destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers... or resume his lonely existence forevermore?

NOW A PRIME ORIGINAL SERIES

Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper.

In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay.

At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess.

And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule - and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose - seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough . . .

Three scorching reader favorite stories from beloved bestselling authors Maya Banks, Tiffany Reisz and Alexa Riley!

Wanted by Maya Banks

Originally published as Wanted by His Lost Love by Harlequin Desire in 2011.

When wealthy developer Ryan Beardsley kicked his cheating fiancée out of his life, he couldn’t help but write her one last check that would cover any and all expenses she could possibly have… except for some reason, she never cashed it. He’s stuck on that fact, stuck wondering why she betrayed him. New plan: track her down, get the answers he needs, and move on from her forever.

Kelly Christian never wanted to see her ex-fiancé ever again. He turned out as rotten to the core as the rest of his family, pushing her away when she needed him the most. But now he’s here, in her dingy little café, demanding she move back in with him for the sake of the baby she’s carrying… and the answers he wants that will destroy them both if he doesn’t learn to trust her again…

The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—and now Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.

Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And just when she thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits, a dangerous former lover enters the picture, and has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

Originally released by MIRA in 2012.

Hold Tight by Alexa Riley

Pandora Justice took over as head of security at Osbourne Corp. after her father’s retirement. Eighty-hour work weeks are normal; being bossed around by handsome outsiders like consultant Royce Davenport is not. And she doesn’t like it. Not even one bit.

It’s amazing how easily she can lie to herself.

Because the first time Pandora sees Royce in the ring, outside work hours—all tattoos and sinew, covered in sweat—he looks at her like he’s just won more than the fight. Like he won her. Royce’s cocky grin with deep dimples makes Pandora melt. Once she wanted to smack that look off his face—now all she wants to do is kiss it. For the rest of her life.

Originally released by Carina Press in 2017.

That inked bad boy who’s been flirting hard with me since he rode into town? Turns out he’s my new housemate, which is one hell of a problem since our chemistry is so hot it should be illegal.

I have a fantastic family, great best friends, a job I love…and now I’m up for a promotion to police sergeant. I need total focus—not a flirty, dirty, irresistible, tattooed hottie riding into my town on his motorcycle. Can I arrest him for being too good-looking? When he kisses me senseless in the back of a waffle truck, it’s criminal, the things he makes me think about hot syrup and melted butter. One order of hot, fluffy hookup to go, please.

But the next time I see him, it’s not for our date with benefits. He’s the guy who just rented the room above my garage.

I need the rent to pay my bills, not a man like Derek, who I soon discover to be strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… If I’m not careful, he’ll be moving into my heart as well as my house.

***

A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town, thank you very much. I’m coming off a bad relationship, and I have zero interest in anything serious. I’ve got all the serious I need helping my sister take care of her three little kids while her husband is deployed.

Except, surprise! Perri isn’t just my future fling. Turns out she’s my sexy, sassy landlord.

A lease definitely counts as “strings attached,” and as much as I’d like to get tangled in her sheets, I can’t let myself get tangled up in a relationship.

But as soon as we put the cuffs on our escapades, I learn over late-night conversations in the kitchen, that my landlord is so much more than the sexiest woman I’ve ever met– she has a quick mind and the biggest heart.

Once I’m in, I’m all in. And to convince her that we should see where this goes, I plan on turning up the heat—and not just in the kitchen.
