From Liliana Hart's New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by best-selling author Avery Flynn... "Being one of the good guys is not my thing." Bianca Sutherland isn't at an exclusive Eyes-Wide-Shut style orgy for the orgasms. She's there because the only clue to her friend's disappearance is a photo of a painting hanging somewhere in Bisu Manor. Determined to find her missing friend when no one else will, she expects trouble when she cons her way into the party-but not in the form of a so-hot-he-turns-your-panties-to-ash former boxer. Taz Hazard's only concern is looking out for himself and he has no intention of changing his ways until he finds sexy-as-sin Bianca at the most notorious mansion in Ft. Worth. Now, he's tangled up in a missing person case tied into a powerful new drug about to flood the streets, if they can't find a way to stop it before its too late. Taking on a drug cartel isn't safe, but when passion ignites between them Taz and Bianca discover their hearts aren't bulletproof either.
Formal Semantics and Proof Techniques for Optimizing VHDL Models presents a formal model of VHDL that clearly specifies both the static and dynamic semantics of VHDL. It provides a mathematical framework for representing VHDL constructs and shows how those constructs can be formally manipulated to reason about VHDL. The dynamic semantics is presented as a description of what the simulation of VHDL means. In particular it specifies what values the signals of a VHDL description will take if the description were to be executed. An advantage of the approach is that the semantic model can be used to validate different simulation algorithms. The book also presents an embedding of the dynamic semantics in a proof checker which is then used to prove equivalences of classes of VHDL descriptions.

Book Excerpt: After what happened to all of us, most normal moms would set an appointment with the principal and get to the bottom of the issue. Not my mom though. First, she called everyone's mom on the phone. She made me go to bed, but I could still hear her screaming and going off. She must have been talking to Sheila or Lulu's mom. "Did you see what they did to Domanique? Oh no, that won't happen to my baby. I am calling the police and going up to that school on Monday morning. I know the rules. Those kids can't get away with doing that stuff." I thought my mom was bluffing until I heard the police knock on the door. I heard only a little, but enough to know that they filled out a report and left. I heard the front door close and lock. Then I saw the light go off in the hallway. I swallowed hard thinking about tomorrow. I know my mom was mad that she had to take off work to handle stuff like this, but I knew she was just trying to protect me. I figured that the crew would get us back after my mom came to the school, but I had to do something.
