Introducing Darque Initiation, book one in the hot and sexy new Darque Billionaire series by best-selling author Diana Steele. Twenty-one-year-old journalism student Arabella Stone has always played by the rules - get good grades, tell the truth, and avoid bad boys at all costs. But when she starts interning at a high profile Washington, D.C. PR firm in the dreaded "Reputation Management" division, she can't help but become intrigued with the firm's sexy and ultra-demanding newest client, Sebastien Darque. Like a moth to a flame, Bella is hopelessly attracted to the brooding billionaire, even though she knows it's just a wicked fantasy. Men like Sebastien - gorgeous, dark, and powerful - usually aren't interested in women like her. Darque is used to getting what he wants and he doesn't take no for an answer. His drive and "take no prisoners" attitude has made him one of the most powerful media moguls in the country. He can have any woman he wants, and has, but when his mother Senator Agnes Mallory makes a bid for the presidency, Sebastien's "reputation" becomes a problem. Enter the deliciously curvy Arabella. Her naive innocence is enough to drive Darque over the edge, and after Bella starts digging around in his sordid past without permission, he senses an opening to teach the naughty intern the pleasures of being bad... ...and the punishment that goes along with it. Soon they are locked in a maze of lies and mystery, pleasure and pain, and a raging passion that knows no bounds. But as Arabella is pushed to her limits, both sexually and professionally, she begins to crave more. However, Darque guards his heart, and his privacy, from scars that run deep. And if those scars and the betrayals that caused them ever saw the light of day, it just might destroy everything... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack O'Keefe.

Identification of cancer risk factors and potential prevention strategies have been some of the most important medical and research contributions to the improvement of public health in the past half-century (Steele 2003). Und- standing the role of lifestyle, exposure to endogenous factors and exogenous environmental factors, and individual genetic and epigenetic variability have contributed significantly to this effort. Cancer prevention strategies have been developed based on results of epidemiologic, preclinical, and clinical studies that have generated clues for identifying risk factors that may be modulated by changes in lifestyle, such as smoking cessation or dietary modification (Greenwald 2002a). In addition, significant progress in medical interventions involving chemoprevention a pharmacological approach to intervention that aims to prevent, arrest, or reverse either the initiation phase of carcinogenesis or the progression of premalignant cells is beg- ning to pay dividends in reducing risks associated with cancer. Emerging technologies, identification of biomarkers of risk, and advances in genetics research also are finding applications in chemoprevention research that p- mise to speed the acquisition of knowledge on the molecular and cellular - fects of chemopreventive agents. 2 Lifestyle Approaches Population studies from the 1950s through the early 1980s provided c- pelling evidence that modifiable lifestyle choices can either increase or - crease cancer risk. For example, several landmark epidemiologic studies in the 1950s showed a clear association between smoking and lung cancer (Wynder and Graham 1950, Levin et al. 1950). In 1964, the U. S.
