Call Me, Maybe
Author: Ellie Cahill
“Ellie Cahill is definitely one to watch!” raves bestselling author Cora Carmack, and this steamy, upbeat modern romance about connecting in all the best ways proves it once again. Clementine Daly knows she’s the black sheep. Her wealthy, powerful family has watched her very closely since she almost got caught in an embarrassing scandal a few years ago. So when Clementine’s sent on a mission to live up to the Daly name, politely declining isn’t an option. Of course, the last thing she does before boarding the plane is to grab a stranger’s phone by mistake—leaving the hunky journalist with her phone. Soon his sexy voice is on the line, but he doesn’t know her real name, or her famous pedigree—which is just the way Clementine likes it. Despite all the hassles, Justin Mueller is intrigued to realize that the beautiful brown-eyed girl he met at the airport is suddenly at his fingertips. They agree to exchange phones when they’re both back in town, but after a week of flirty texts and wonderfully intimate conversations, Justin doesn’t want to let her go. The only problem? It turns out that Clemetine has been lying to him about, well, everything. Except for the one thing two people can’t fake, the only thing that matters: The heat between them is for real.

Marko Pogacnik is an expert in geomancy, that is, exploring the landscape experientially and gathering information about the Gaia and the different levels of the earth's reality. In this unique book, he brings the same approach to the study of the human body, exploring how we can consciously enter our own body space to experience it from the inside, and how to prepare to meet the coming challenges -- the equivalent of climate change.This book is both theoretical and practical, and includes exercises called Gaia Touch exercises, inspired by the elementals, which will stimulate personal development and help us become conscious co-creators with Gaia of the new emerging reality.
