A tour de force of history and imagination, The Lady and the Unicorn is Tracy Chevalier’s answer to the mystery behind one of the art world’s great masterpieces—a set of bewitching medieval tapestries that hangs today in the Cluny Museum in Paris. They appear to portray the seduction of a unicorn, but the story behind their making is unknown—until now. Paris, 1490. A shrewd French nobleman commissions six lavish tapestries celebrating his rising status at Court. He hires the charismatic, arrogant, sublimely talented Nicolas des Innocents to design them. Nicolas creates havoc among the women in the house—mother and daughter, servant, and lady-in-waiting—before taking his designs north to the Brussels workshop where the tapestries are to be woven. There, master weaver Georges de la Chapelle risks everything he has to finish the tapestries—his finest, most intricate work—on time for his exacting French client. The results change all their lives—lives that have been captured in the tapestries, for those who know where to look. In The Lady and the Unicorn, Tracy Chevalier weaves fact and fiction into a beautiful, timeless, and intriguing literary tapestry—an extraordinary story exquisitely told.

In a crumbling Calcutta mansion, with faded frescos and a jasmine-covered garden, the Lemarchant family live, clinging to the fringes of respectability: neither Indian nor English, they are accepted by no one and exploited by all. After only a day in India, Stephen Bright meets Rosa Lemarchant. In an ill-fitting dress once belonging to her sister, she is awkward and shy, and couldn't be more different from the stories he has heard of fast 'Eurasian' girls. Ignorant of Calcutta's strict codes of conformity, he falls in love with Rosa and becomes enchanted by the building in which she lives, determined to uncover its secrets. Mystery pervades this story of a memory-haunted house in old Calcutta, as secret as a sundial in a ruined garden.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen gives readers a scintillating story of captivity and freedom, love and longing. Rafe Santine is under doctor’s orders: He needs to stay put in his coastal California mansion for two months to recuperate from the pneumonia that nearly killed him. Despite a retinue of mistresses to keep the powerful tycoon occupied, Rafe struggles against boredom—until a stunning woman literally drops onto his estate. She has high demands of him, but Rafe has even greater demands of her. He knows instantly that he must possess every facet of the enigmatic Janna. But the only thing she’ll give him is her body—and for the first time in his life, that is not enough for Rafe. Janna Cannon is willing to risk it all to save the endangered animals of the wild animal reserve where she works as a game warden. With the land they depend on pulled out from under them, Janna must take a gambit to convince billionaire Santine to give the reserve the real estate they need to keep the animals free. And she’ll need to sneak onto the man’s vast, highly protected property to do it. Much to her surprise, Santine agrees to grant her the land—if Janna agrees to give him herself in exchange. And what begins as luxurious captivity soon turns into an emotional awakening she never expected. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Taking Shots, Along Came Trouble, and Hell on Wheels.

'I enjoyed THE LADY AND THE UNICORN enormously. It is a wonderfully interwoven tapestry of a book, written in feisty baroque style, with a deliciously contrary heroine and a suitably stern hero. The torrent of well researched historical detail left me quite breathless...' Barbara Erskine, bestselling author of THE LADY OF HAY It is 1470 and the Wars of the Roses threates to tear England apart. Overnight a man can find himself set against his brother or unable to trust the woman in his arms. For Margery, the beautiful and spirited ward of Warwick the Kingmaker, freedom is the only prize worth fighting for. Disgraced and banished to a nunnery after the philandering Edward IV ruined her reputation, she is determined that no man will ever decide her fate again. But the king has already set in train a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will pit Margery against his enemies, and the enigmatic man who wants her. Her place in Warwick's household makes her the ideal choice as his secret courier to France to help avert the inevitable bloodbath the Lancastrians are plotting. Torn between loyalty to her cause and a dangerous attraction to a man she should despise, Margery's mission becomes a deadly race against time to outwit her enemies and save the House of York.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 30. Chapters: Unicorn, Tahash, Elasmotherium, Scottish Royal tapestry collection, Qilin, The Lady and the Unicorn, The Hunt of the Unicorn, The Lion and the Unicorn, Re'em, Monocerus, Unicorn Pursuivant, Alicorn, Shadhavar. Excerpt: Tachash skins are a type of animal skins referred to in the Bible (Exodus 25:5, 26:14, 35:7, 35:23, 36:19 and 39:34; Numbers 4:6,8,10-12,14,25 and Ezekiel 16:10), and used as the outer covering of the tent of the Tabernacle and to wrap sacred objects used within the Tabernacle for transport. What the word 'tachash' refers to is a matter of some debate. According to the Babylonian Talmud and Rashi's commentary, the tachash was a kosher, multi-colored, one horned desert animal which came into existence to be used to build the Tabernacle and ceased to exist afterward. The King James Version of the Bible translates the word tachash as badger. Another hypothesis is that the Hebrew term "orot t'chashim" refers to very fine dyed sheep or goat leather, hence the Jerusalem Bible translates the term as "fine leather." A currently popular hypothesis is that the term "tachash" means dugong. This translation is based upon the similarity between tachash and the Arabic word tukhas, which means dugong. In accordance with this hypothesis several translations, such as the Jewish Publication Society translation, render tachash as dolphin or sea cow. Others believe the tachash was related to the keresh, a creature most often identified with the giraffe, with a similar description mentioned in the Gemara. It is not explicitly stated if the tachash was a mammal or not. The King James Version translates tachash as badger. John Grigg Hewlett, D.D. (1860) argued against the King James translation of Tachash as Badger for three reasons. 1. The badger is not found in Arabia. 2. It is an unclean animal. It would have violated th...
