By: Lucinda Elliot
Two males are in love with aspiring model Natalie Nicholson, and she is not even sure that one of them is human. These are the best selling writer Alex Sager, and his own fictitious character, the wicked but beguiling Ivan Ostrowski from early nineteenth century Tsarist Russia.
The jaded rake Ivan Ostrowski has broken through the barrier from his own reality, seeking revenge on the so-called creator who has imposed a series of unhappy love affairs on him.
Besides, Ostrowski has seen Natalie from afar, and now wildly infatuated with her, schemes to draw her back with him into his own world.
Natalie is unwillingly drawn into a nightmare situation which few can credit. Alex himself cannot believe – as his closest friend insists – that he has brought this situation about through insulting a sinister being known as ‘The Magus’ at an Ouija board session many years ago. He also refuses to credit the increasing parallels between his own life and that of his idol Pushkin, the great poet of Tsarist Russia, whose life was tragically cut short through a duel over his wife.
But even Alex has to admit, Natalie strongly resembles Pushkin’s Natalya, and Ivan Ostrowski certainly wants a battle to the death.
Natalie enlists the help of two New Age gurus, only to realise that the handsome and unscrupulous Ivan Ostrowski is enticing the woman into becoming his dupe.
Meanwhile, she senses that Alex is hurtling towards destruction, and dreads that Ostrowski will draw her into his own world.

Humor & Entertainment

All You Can Imagine
By: K. K. Stewart
Voltaire told us to “judge a man by his questions, not his answers.” I ask a lot of thought provoking questions in this ebook, all starting with the words – what if. We can barely go through life without asking what if about something. We are always questioning, always imagining. While the book takes a bit of a philosophical outlook on things, it also gives light humour that the average person can enjoy. The questions range from basic style choice to more controversial questions about life, and even about God’s existence. As Albert Einstein once said “the important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

Or The Curse Of The Venns
By: Lucinda Elliot

An appreciative satire of the cliches of classical Gothic.

When Clarissa Greendale inherits the fortune of disreputable uncle she hardly knows, she does not expect to find herself forced into marriage with an aristocratic fortune hunter and wild, brawling, debauched social outcast. Still, she has always found Harley Venn set off the most unmaidenly tinglings in her; that is one consolation…

Yet neither did Clarinda expect to inherit the legacy of a wrongdoing from half a century before. For the wicked if beguiling Lord Venn seems to have inherited a family curse, which, having dispatched the main perpetrators of the old crime, now moves on to their heirs, who are just as wild a set of rakes as their elders. There are rumours of violent deaths preceded by appearances from an inexorable hooded spectre, of inexplicable strikes of lightning, and of haunted mirrors.

The light-hearted Harley Venn dismisses all these as conjuring tricks. He even hires a drunken charlatan of a professional magician to prove it.

Clarinda is far from sure that there is any rational explanation. Still, it would take more than an enforced marriage to an incorrigible pugilistic libertine or persecution from malevolent spectres to damage her steely nerves and sense of the ridiculous.

This lively Gothic comedy, written as a good natured satire of the cliches of classical Gothic, gives the reader a warm-hearted and courageous heroine, a rascally but beguiling anti-hero and an authentic historical background to the delightfully over-the-top adventures, a cast of wholly believable characters, an engaging love story and many chills on its way to its tumultuous conclusion.

For Johnnie Longman – costermonger and part-time burglar, has radical views – about stealing from the rich to help the poor, a working man’s rights and whether or not he should see see her again.

‘Johnnie Ringlets’ represents everything which she has been brought up to regard as dreadful. But with his curling dark hair and flashing dark eyes, he is undeniably handsome; he has an affect on her that she doesn’t want or understand.
In this third novella by the author, the vividly portrayed early Victorian London setting of contrasting wealth and poverty provides a dramatic background for a life-changing romance between two people from very different backgrounds.
This is the first novel of a series.

She awoke later by the sound of tapping on her window, and when she cautiously opened the window, and in the darkness saw the man she’d been dreaming of-Hiram Landis. As he told her of his plan, she gradually realized this might be the answer to her prayers.

For many of us, we have a different view and understanding about love, we have our unique experiences and we have our resolves; some binds us and some reveals us to what we are yet to become but most importantly, we delve into every chance we get at love because we hope that the most glorious of our imaginations would come through if we give it a chance and nurture it.
This about a young lady named Leah, who probably is out in the environ to run purposes that will suit herself and her dreams; that will also make the home that she comes from proud but maybe her choices and understanding are responsible for all the turns she now faces and up until the end.

Will she accept this deadly but most compelling of offers, so that she can put her brutal existence to rest, once and for all?

” By now I have become a fan of author’s John Hennessy, spine-tingling, exciting writing. The novel takes you in frightening places with unparallel style. His web of mystery is infectious and draws you in with wicked and unexpected twists in the narrative. I enjoyed the first two books of the trilogy and fully appreciated the well defined characters who continue to fascinate the reader.
There is a sleeping beauty allure to Juliana’s hibernation in her coffin, captive by the dreaded gloom within the castle of Dreymuir. She is the spawn of evil vampires, engaged in the endless struggle for the triumph of evil over good. We feel compassion for the child Nina whose only defense is her innocence and innate goodness against the powerful dominance that wishes to possess her.
I highly recommend this easy, fascinating read to anyone who enjoy being lost in a frightening and yet enticing world of magic and fantasy. “ Adriana Girolami, Author of Revenge of the Knights Templar.

Romance

By: Lucinda Elliot
Meet Isabella, the dashing highwaywoman who takes from the rich to give to the poor.
This warm hearted satire of the cliches of the cliches of the wild young earl turned highwayman troupe gives the reader many laughs, while at the same time drawing her into the adventure.
When the group of highwaymen, headed by the disgraced Earl Ravensdale hold up the hoydenish Isabella Murray’s coach, she knocks one of them down and lectures them all on following Robin Hood’s example.
The rascally Reynaud Ravensdale ”” otherwise known as the dashing highwayman Mr Fox ”” is fascinated by her spirit.
He escaped abroad three years back when he fell under suspicion of shooting a friend dead after a quarrel. Rumour has it that his far more respectable cousin was involved. Now, having come back during his father’s last illness, the young Earl has largely lost hope of clearing his name of murder, living as an outlaw as he is, and having sworn to protect someone else who was involved in the quarrel.
Isabella’s ambitious parents are eager to marry her off to Ravensdale’s cousin, the next in line to his title. The totally unromantic Isabella is even ready to elope with her outlaw admirer to escape this fate ”” on condition that he teaches her how to be a highwaywoman herself.
This hilarious spoof uses vivid characters and lively comedy to bring new life to a theme traditionally favoured by historical novelists ”” that of the wild young earl, who, falsely accused of murder by the machinations of a conniving cousin and prejudged by his reputation, takes up life as an outlaw.
”˜Ravensdale’ is a fast paced, funny and light hearted read from the writer of ”˜That Scoundrel Émile Dubois’, and follows the adventures of Émile Dubois’ equally roguish cousin just prior to the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. It can be read as an independent novel.

However when he gets into big trouble (of his own making) at school, he is forced to make a choice : open up about his mental issues or forget about soccer. When given a chance at resurrection, he grabs it with both hands and along with his three soccer buddies, overcomes many obstacles, including the biggest one – his own self.
