On her wedding day, Caroline receives an unexpected gift. An uninvited guest delivers a deed to Heart Island, its gardens and castles. Rodger, Caroline's husband of less than one hour, depends on his police instincts and special training to protect his wife, as they change honeymoon destinations. Following a tour guide through the castle, Caroline recognizes her own facial structures in a family photo. Under a greenhouse, in an earthen womb, a sundial is discovered. The orphanage Caroline was adopted from provided a locket, which she always wears near her heart. When the sundial reveals itself as a time-travel machine, built by her father, the locket is the key to changing the time and events. The terrorist Caszone, from THE WEAVERS, keeps his appointment arranged by FBI agents and hero-husband Rodger Calvert. Terrorists will not allow rumors about the island to trouble them. Folklore and heirs will not stop their plans. Rodger Calvert depends on his investigative skills, and those of his team, to survive his honeymoon trip, learn how to travel through time, defeat terrorists, decipher the sundial's holograms and secret codes, and become a joint heir of a heart shaped island. Some sundials read, "Time began in a garden," but Caroline will discover love is timeless.

Captive in His Island Heart is a family saga – a family that stands strong in times of turmoil adds flavor to the romantic setting of the novel. It is also an effort towards an ecological and social consciousness that would call every reader to contribute to the same in their own way. Though very intense issues are being dealt with, it is all discussed in the tone of a sizzling romance that gives life and beauty to the novel. The uncompromising heroine is forced into a very compromising situation where she has to wage a constant war against the sizzling attraction she feels for the hero, who is temporarily disabled. Finally, the last and fatal blow to her hope of earning his love is her discovering him to be a ruthless womanizer. Marrying him because of blackmail leaves her emotionally bruised. Will she ever find the true love that she longed for from her womanizing husband? Will her marriage of convenience go beyond his disability? Questions haunt her, and she has no answers… Aniket, a royal and a sports star by profession is temporarily paralyzed from the waist below is more deeply wounded in spirit, because of Devi. His depression has become a source of anxiety to his family. But the moment he set his eyes on her, he fell in love. Falling in love was wonderful, but winning her trust and love wasn’t that easy. But he would leave no stone unturned to achieve it.

Volcanic eruptions have killed thousands of people and damaged homes, villages, infrastructure, subsistence gardens, and hunting and fishing grounds in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The central business district of a town was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in the case of Rabaul in 1994. Volcanic disasters litter not only the recent written history of both countries—particularly Papua New Guinea—but are recorded in traditional stories as well. Furthermore, evidence for disastrous volcanic eruptions many times greater than any witnessed in historical times is to be found in the geological record. Volcanic risk is greater today than at any time previously because of larger, mainly sedentary populations on or near volcanoes in both countries. An attempt is made in this book to review what is known about past volcanic eruptions and disasters with a view to determining how best volcanic risk can be reduced today in this tectonically complex and volcanically threatening region.
