A Week to Be Wicked By Tessa Dare
When a devilish lord and a bluestocking set off on the road to ruin . . .time is not on their side.Minerva Highwood, one of Spindle Cove's confirmed spinsters, needs to be in Scotland.Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, a rake of the first order, needs to be . . . anywhere but Spindle Cove.These uNlikely partners have one week: to fake an elopement to convince family and friends they're "in love" to outrun armed robbers to survive their worst nightmares to travel four hundred miles without killing each otherAll while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.What they don't have time for is their growing attraction. Much less wild passion. And heaven forbid they spend precious hours baring their hearts and souls. Suddenly one week seems like exactly enough time to find a world of trouble. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . everlasting love.

Drawing on neuropsychological research and an analysis of current educational practices, Healy presents in clear, understandable language:-- How growing brains are physically shaped by experience-- Why television programs -- even supposedly educational shows like Sesame Street -- develop "habits of mind" that place children at a disadvantage in school-- Why increasing numbers of children are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder-- How parents and teachers can make a critical difference by making children good learners from the day they are born
