This collection of infant reading books works as the skills-focused backbone of guided reading resources, with step-by-step skills coverage and the full range of genre. The scheme correlates to the NLS and the Scottish 5-14 Attainment targets for children. The readers in this scheme feature a wide range of genres (including non-fiction) and are levelled to "Book Bands", the grading system recommended by the NLS. Within each Lighthouse band the books are organized in order of challenge, so each session moves children on. Each reader has an accompanying teaching notes booklet which gives guidance on teaching a range of reading skills.
Lady Isabella Winton has waited four years to marry her fiance, but each year Lord Alexander Fitzroy, Earl of Standford, a serving officer and a reformed rake, finds an excuse to delay the nuptials. This time, with the marriage set for the next month, he tells her he received an urgent message from his Colonel. He is needed in Belgium almost immediately. He warns her it may be dangerous for her to accompany him. Isabella realizes he is bluffing, things would not change so suddenly. Brussels is the centre of a social whirl with elaborate dinners and extravagant balls. Fearing Alex may have returned to his rakish ways and already installed a mistress, she insists on travelling with him. Caught in a whirl of arrangements for the wedding, Isabella is unaware that Lord Ladness, heir to a dukedom, is obsessed with her and will go to any lengths to possess her.
The theory of the scattering of light by small particles is very important in a wide range of applications in atmospheric physics and atmospheric optics, ocean optics, remote sensing, astronomy and astrophysics and biological optics. This book summarises current knowledge of the optical properties of single small particles and natural light scattering media such as snow, clouds, foam aerosols etc. The book considers both single and multiple light scattering regimes, together with light scattering and radiative transfer in close-packed media. The third edition incorporates new findings in the area of light scattering media optics in an updated version of the text.

Merry Gentry, ex-private detective and full-time princess, is now the mother of triplets, a rarity in the high ranks of faerie. And not everyone is happy about it, including Taranis, King of Light and Illusion. He's using the human courts to sue for visitation rights, claiming that one of the babies is his. To save herself and her children, Merry will use the most dangerous powers in all of faerie: a god of death, a warrior known as the Darkness, the Killing Frost, and a king of nightmares. They are her lovers, and her dearest loves, and they will face down the might of the high courts of faerie--while trying to keep the war from spreading to innocent humans in Los Angeles, who are in danger of becoming collateral damage.
