Although author Betsy Brannon Green was born in Salt Lake City, she has spent most of her life in the South. Her writing and her life have been strongly influenced by the town of Headland, Alabama, and the many generous gracious people who live there. The Duty Series 3-Book Bundle includes: Hazardous Duty — Savannah McLaughlin is running a little late. Those extra few minutes could mean she may never see her daughter again. The only clue Savannah and the police have to six-year-old Caroline's disappearance is a note with a cryptic verse of scripture.
With no signs of progress, Savannah is desperate enough to call the one man she knows can help—the one man who absolutely despises her.If anyone can find Caroline, it's Major Christopher Dane. The Army often calls on him to discreetly extract people from dangerous situations. But can Savannah trust him and the band of misfits Dane surrounds himself with? Or will the betrayal that took place in their dark past exclude any chance of a bright future? Above and Beyond— Now that Savannah has her daughter, Caroline, back after a frightening abduction, life seems calmer. But that serenity comes to an abrupt end when twenty-year-old Rosemary Allen pleads for Savannah’s help after running away from her dangerously controlling father. But her father isn’t just anyone — he’s Mario Ferrante, the criminal mastermind who oversaw Caroline’s kidnapping. Rosemary and her husband had planned to escape from Ferrante’s house together, but the plan was foiled and Rosemary had to escape alone. Now she is begging Savannah to help keep her safe and rescue her husband. She knows it’s risky, but Savannah can’t resist taking on the challenge. And she knows one person who is just crazy enough to take it on with her — Major Christopher Dane. Savannah just hopes he won’t be able to see through her feigned indifference to him and discover her desperate desire to be reunited with him, even if it requires both of them to put their Lives in danger . . . again. Savannah entreats the help of Dane and his team, and after some convincing, they all agree to take the assignment. Will the team’s undercover plots to beat Ferrante at his own game be enough to win against such a cunning criminal? Will Savannah be able to withstand her resurfacing nightmares when Caroline’s safety is in great danger once again? And will she ever have reason to hope that Dane could someday let her into his complicated life? Code of Honor— Savannah McLaughlin has every reason to be afraid of the obsessed man behind the surgical mask. The injuries she has suffered while jumping from a moving car are nothing compared to the anguish she will have to endure at the hands of Mario Ferrante. She knows she must escape from the man who has a seemingly end vendetta against Savannah and Major Christopher Dane. What she doesn’t know is that Major Dane—who has always avoided commitment—has finally declared his feelings for her in a dramatic way by deliberately ransoming himself for her freedom. Now it’s up to Savannah and Dane’s team of expert misfits to rescue Dane.
But success will require more than brute force.
So the team designs an elaborate plan to bring Ferrante to justice and free Dane. But will the recruitment of an unlikely ally doom the most important mission of Savannah’s life? Will a shocking secret keep Savannah from trusting the man she loves? Full of twists and turns, action and romantic tension, Code of Honor will keep you guessing and cheering for Betsy Branno
"The highest standards of logical clarity are maintained." — Bulletin of The American Mathematical Society Written with exceptional lucidity and care, this concise text offers a rigorous introduction to finite differences and difference equations-mathematical tools with widespread applications in the social sciences, economics, and psychology. The exposition is at an elementary level with little required in the way of mathematical background beyond some facility with standard algebraic techniques and the essentials of trigonometry. Moreover, the author explains when needed such relevant ideas as the function concept, mathematical induction, binomial formula, de Moivre's Theorem and more. The book begins with a short introductory chapter showing how difference equations arise in the context of social science problems. Chapter One then develops essential parts of the calculus of finite differences. Chapter Two introduces difference equations and some useful applications in the social sciences: compound interest and amortization of debts, the classical Harrod-Domar-Hicks model for growth of national income, Metzler's pure inventory cycle, and others. Chapter Three treats linear differential equations with constant coefficients, including the important question of limiting behavior of solutions, which is discussed and applied to a variety of social science examples. Finally, Chapter Four offers concise coverage of equilibrium values and stability of difference equations, first-order equations and cobweb cycles, and a boundary-value problem. More extensive coverage is devoted to the relatively advanced concepts of generating functions and matrix methods for the solution of systems of simultaneous equations. Throughout, numerous worked examples and over 250 problems, many with answers, enable students to test their grasp of definitions, theorems and applications. Ideal for an undergraduate course or self-study, this cogent treatment will be of interest to all mathematicians, and especially to social scientists, who will find it an excellent introduction to a powerful tool of theory and research.

When Meg returns to Dublin after three years trailing Simon around the globe with their toddler, Lily, and Dan, her 11 year old son from a previous relationship in tow, she realises that all her friends have moved on. And now she only has her kooky family, her sex-obsessed sister, Hattie, and Dan's flaky but dangerously gorgeous father, Sid, to rely on for help and support.
Her new neighbour, Tina is in the same boat. Tina's a work widow - her workaholic husband, Oliver, works in London from Monday to Friday, leaving Tina with only her perma-stressed sister, Gerry, for company during the week. Meg is worried - without Simon's job to define her, she doesn't know who she is anymore. But just when she finds a new job and starts to get back on her feet, Simon throws her another curve ball. And Meg finds that having a man around all the time isn't all it's cracked up to be. And that sometimes living apart is easier than living together.
