Omegas are supposed to be meek, obedient, and devoted to their alpha mates.Ori is none of those things.Ori and Patton have been best friends since they were pups. But growing up changes everything-Ori must settle on an alpha to mate, while Patton takes on the beta's work of maintaining the walled enclave their pack lives within. They try to make the best of it, until a wealthy suitor comes calling for Ori, and they realize neither of them can face a future without the other. And on a moonless night, Ori and Patton escape over the enclave walls, breaking both shifter and human law in their determination to reach the sanctuary of Mercy Hills. Hunted by their own people and forced into a dangerous masquerade among the humans, their original plan--so simple and direct-turns into a twisted path toward a promise of freedom that might not even exist. Because Mercy Hills doesn't know they're coming, and the trouble they're bringing to the enclave's doorstep may be more than those already beset shifters are willing to bear.Finding out Ori is pregnant makes their mission that much more urgent. Omegas never mate with betas, let alone have pups with them. If their pack finds the two lovers, they'll be separated forever. But the pack never reckoned with the determination of a beta in love, or the stubbornness of an omega determined to keep his mate and his baby.

More than a century ago, the Segregation Laws made enemies of humans and shifters, and imprisoned the pack behind their enclave walls. Laine wants Garrick. He wants him out from behind those walls and being what he was meant to be-a brilliant lawyer. He also wants to claim Garrick openly as his partner, but with the prejudice on both sides, he'll never get what he wants. Unless he can pull off something spectacular. Like getting Garrick admitted to the Bar. Garrick's spent so much of his life keeping secrets, he doesn't know how to open up to another person. Even if it's Laine, the human lawyer who stole Garrick's heart and made him want things he could never have. But Laine's pushing too hard, and there's another lawyer, one from Washington, holding out the promise of truly eliminating the laws keeping shifters locked behind walls. If they could bring those down, then maybe some of Garrick's dreams could become reality. If only he could make Laine see... All while an unforeseen gift of history creates rumbles of change in the packs, and drives Mercy Hills to an announcement that will rock shifter society to the roots.

This book presents guidelines for a future device type: a tablet that allows ergonomic front- and back-of-device interaction. These guidelines help designers and developers of user interfaces to build ergonomic applications for tablet devices, in particular for devices that enable back-of-device interaction. In addition, manufacturers of tablet devices obtain arguments that back-of-device interaction is a promising extension of the interaction design space and results in increased input capabilities, enriched design possibilities, and proven usability. The guidelines are derived from empirical studies and developed to fit the users’ skills to the way the novel device type is held. Three particular research areas that are relevant to develop design guidelines for tablet interaction are investigated: ergonomic gestures, interaction areas, and pointing techniques.

When his boyfriend of two years kicks him out because he just can’t get pregnant, Adrian is heartbroken. Coming from a broken home, all he’s ever wanted was to start a family of his own. But now it’s starting to look like that’s never going to happen. Worse yet, he has to move in with his brother to keep from living on the street, and the prevalent bias against men with the ability to carry children keeps him from finding a job of his own. He’s about ready to give up hope when he finds a job offer in the newspaper searching for someone to produce an heir for a rich dragon shifter. Having a baby with a stranger, even if he’s enigmatic and hot as hell, is not Adrian’s definition of happiness, but he figures he’s got nothing left to lose. Dragon shifter Tyrel has no interest in mating, but if he doesn’t become a parent by the age he’s thirty, his family’s considerable wealth will fall to his brother. To prevent that from happening, he plays along when his mother invites several omegas to their mansion for him to pick a partner, even though he believes all humans to be fools. His opinion on this only changes when he meets Adrian and he hears fate whisper in his ear. But Adrian has trouble conceiving, and even when he does, carrying a dragon’s child comes with its own set of complications.
