Enemy Queen Book Review:

When Stanley Berman, a Jewish New York attorney, is appointed Chief Counsel at a North Carolina University, he opts to share a house with his good friend, Thomas McClellan, a professor in the school’s English Department. The men spend their evenings drinking wine, playing chess, and lamenting their ineptitude with women. Then the Professor, a Southern good old boy, former high school football lineman, and avid hunter, hatches a scheme to bring a young woman into the house, insisting that as a creative writing teacher, such women find him alluringly subversive and artistic. The Counselor is dubious but persuaded nonetheless—much to his detriment. The articulate but bumbling Counselor and Professor find themselves outwitted at every turn by Victoria, a young woman who is clever, inscrutable, and superb at finishing what she starts. She initiates passionate sexual encounters with the men, but as time goes on, what she demands in return becomes untenable. When she goes missing, John Watson, the county sheriff—and the Professor’s lifelong friend—feels compelled to open a murder investigation. Full of wicked humor, artful eroticism, scintillating dialogue, and a bit of intrigue, Enemy Queen is an exhilarating romp set in a North Carolina college town.

The Mystery Queen Book Review:

Lillian stared at the closed door through which both her father and Mrs. Bolstreath had passed, and then looked at Dan, sitting somewhat disconsolately at the disordered dinner-table. She was a delicately pretty girl of a fair fragile type, not yet twenty years of age, and resembled a shepherdess of Dresden china in her dainty perfection. With her pale golden hair, and rose-leaf complexion; arrayed in a simple white silk frock with snowy pearls round her slender neck, she looked like a wreath of faint mist. At least Dan fancifully thought so, as he stole a glance at her frail beauty, or perhaps she was more like a silver-point drawing, exquisitely fine. But whatever image love might find to express her loveliness, Dan knew in his hot passion that she was the one girl in the world for him. Lillian Halliday was a much better name for her than Lillian Moon. Dan himself was tall and slim, dark and virile, with a clear-cut, clean-shaven face suggestive of strength and activity. His bronzed complexion suggested an open-air life, while the eagle look in his dark eyes was that new vast-distance expression rapidly being acquired by those who devote themselves to aviation. No one could deny Dan's good looks or clean life or daring nature, and he was all that a girl could desire in the way of a fairy prince. But fathers do not approve of fairy princes unless they come laden with jewels and gold. To bring such to Lillian was rather like taking coals to Newcastle since her father was so wealthy; but much desires more, and Sir Charles wanted a rich son-in-law. Dan could not supply this particular adjective, and therefore--as he would have put it in the newest slang of the newest profession--was out of the fly. Not that he intended to be, in spite of Sir Charles, since love can laugh at stern fathers as easily as at bolts and bars. And all this time Lillian stared at the door, and then at Dan, and then at her plate, putting two and two together. But in spite of her feminine intuition, she could not make four, and turned to her lover--for that Dan was, and a declared lover too--for an explanation.

Shattered Glass Book Review:

I lived in a world of darkness, never to see the light again. It's been eleven years since my father cursed Crystal City, since he condemned me to a life of loneliness and misery. By taking away everything that my mother loved, he took everything that I knew and cared for. Everything, but the throne. Only what good was being a queen in a city of mindless killers? A city that would never see the sunlight until the day of my death. I truly had nothing to live for... ...Or so I thought. The night that Wolfe was dragged into my palace, I knew that my life would never be the same. We were childhood friends once, but we went our separate ways. He became captain of the pirates, and I ascended to the diamond throne. My once sworn protector had become my enemy, but we were both alone, and the connection we felt was almost unbearable to ignore. My heart only cracked after my father abandoned me, but Wolfe would completely shatter it. For someone that hasn't felt anything for years, that wasn't such a bad thing.

Forever Book Review:

"There are only two kinds of people who can tell you the truth about yourself. An enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly."-- Antisthenis, 445-365 B.C.Forever is the first part of the two-book Your Enemy, Your Friend series.It is about the relationship that you have with your life-partner today, despite aiming for something a little different all those years ago.This is not a romance novel or an erotic escapade, and may not be easily digestible at times. It is neither safe nor is it politically symmetrical, but that is exactly how it must be - if it is going to make a difference.Your Enemy, Your Friend - Forever, is an impetuous and unashamed departure from conventional belief frameworks, insubstantial value systems and counter-productive behavioural doctrines that systematically rob us of the two things most of us are constantly trying to acquire:Personal happiness & Relationship MadnessUnfortunately, most of us remain buried under deeply engrained, artificial, erroneous, and even obsolete 'way of being' constraints that covertly prevent us from ever obtaining those goals and will continue to do so until we can see them for what they really are. But, to see them we must shift our perspective - and for most of us that does not occur easily.It will require a firm nudge in our awareness by way of a compelling jolt that provokes us into action. That is exactly what this book Forever and the Your Enemy, Your Friend series - actually are; a compelling jolt consisting of thought provoking behavioural insights that expose antiquated 'way of life' notions and frameworks so that you can see them. What you do with that information is then entirely up to you.Personal happiness and relationship madness are just around the corner; but to acquire these precious commodities:We must unlearn who we think we are - so that we can relearn who we can become.

A History of the Novel in Ants Book Review:

Why a history of the novel in ants? It makes perfect sense because ants live in an almost exclusively female society. And as Ian Watt noted in THE RISE OF THE NOVEL, the majority of eighteenth century novels were written by -- as well as read by women. The prevalence of women as readers and authors of fiction has continued to the present day. Within their all-female society, ants have conflicts, ants have ambitions and disappointments, ants have victories and defeats. Inhabiting an underground fortress of winding, labyrinthine galleries, ants can be gothic or postmodernist as the plot requires. For them the above-ground world of predators and enemies has a painful realism when it is not violently picaresque. Imagine translating Jane Austen into ants: your six-legged heroine will have not one or two but hundreds of gossiping, posturing, romantically and socially ambitious sisters, all striving to get precedence of one another. Or don't bother imagining it for yourself -- just read A HISTORY OF THE NOVEL IN ANTS. Carol Hart is a freelance science writer with a rusty PhD in English Literature. She reads a great many novels and she never steps on ants. This is her first novel.

A Kripslod in the Realm Book Review:

Kripslod (from Realmspeak) (1) An implement that is not only useless for the application, but also dangerous to the user. (2) A bigoted, loud, and whiny complainer who causes great trouble for himself and all those around him. What would you do if you were taken from your home on Earth and brought to live on a planet in the farthest reaches of the Galaxy? Would you join a rebel band fighting to topple an oppressive regime? Would you enlist in an interplanetary space expedition and help search the universe for alien civilizations? Would you battle to save the human race from murderous robots? Not if you're Teodor Korzeniowski. No, he doesn't have time for things like that. He is much too busy trying to get an extra pillow on a Port Leyken Spaceways' interstellar economy flight from Boulanger-Four to I Taisto Station. Welcome to the new worlds of Teodor Korzeniowski—formerly of Utica, NY and now a reluctant Citizen of the Realm. Here he will be knocked-over and stepped on by the biggest and toughest space-faring carnivores in our Galaxy. He'll meet and become the legal mate of a human female medical technician whose ancestors were once curiosities in an interplanetary traveling menagerie. He'll join his mate in attending the graduation of new officers in the Imperial Majesty's dreaded Secret Police. Then endanger them both when he becomes the typical 'ugly American' and gives his opinions about everything and everyone. Including her Imperial Majesty and her need to lose more than a little weight. In this volume, Teodor and his long-suffering mate will be joined by: Guard Admiral Reinier of the Political Police. (He insists that the condiments on the tables in the officer's mess be arranged symmetrically at all times.) Teodor's father-in-law. (He watches etiquette programs on the screens and still has a few choice metaphors for his unemployed son-in-law from Earth.) And the usual assortment of radical terrorists, waiters, psychotic racists, police, muggers, pensioners, medical technicians, politicians, opera singers and pirates. It is never dull when you travel our Galaxy with Teodor Korzeniowski!

The Bus to Beulah Book Review:

On her way to a new job in America, Maria Puente accidentally discovers a human trafficking ring. Fearing exposure, the American company that manages the operation—with the help of their Mexican partners—kidnaps Maria. Maria’s disappearance triggers a desperate search, by her family and local law enforcement, to find her before the kidnappers can permanently dispose of her. As the investigation unfolds, long-time Hogg County high sheriff Will Moser confronts Albert Waters, a powerful businessman who Will suspects knows about Maria’s disappearance—but Albert and his Mexican cartel partners prove to be brick walls. At the urging of his wife, Lana, Will calls on Elijah Kahn, a man he got to know while serving in Vietnam who now runs one of the largest international security firms in the world. The idea of working with men who are rightly known as mercenaries troubles Will, but he knows he’ll never find Maria without Elijah’s help—and when Lana reminds Will of the debt they owe to Tomas Delgado, Maria’s uncle, his hesitation evaporates. Organized in an hour-by-hour structure, The Bus to Beulah is a taut thriller that culminates in a massive, heatrt-pounding chase to save Maria—before she disappears forever.

Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you'd never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd – He's Just Not That Into You? The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn't heed their mother's advice or haven't read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter's best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul's brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers. Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure – of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul's story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp. They can't move on because they are stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are all forced by circumstances to change.Show More Show Less

Watermark Book Review:

The oldest child in a troubled Philadelphia family, Angel Ferente struggles to care for her three sisters while pursuing her goal of attending college on a swimming scholarship. She has a problematic relationship with her mother, Pic, who uses alcohol and drugs to self-medicate and at one point lost custody for a year, and an outright hostile relationship with her stepfather, the only father figure in her life. Angel is the center of stability in the household—making sure the younger girls get to school, ensuring that holidays are observed, doing the family’s laundry at her part-time job at a Laundromat, and even taking care of Pic when she is sick or depressed. It’s 1993, the midst of the crack epidemic, and Angel and her sisters are witness to the everyday events of life in a community beset by poverty and drugs: dealers on the corner, shoot-outs that kill bystanders, prostitutes on the job, and more. Then Angel goes to a team party on New Year’s Eve—and doesn’t come home afterward. In the wake of her disappearance, her teammates, her coach’s church, and her family search the city for her. The result changes their lives forever.
