A shooting party at the Earl of Witton´s remote country house is a high treat for champion shot Patricia Merton—until unexpected guests turn the social atmosphere dangerously sour. That´s not Pat´s biggest problem. She´s visiting her old friend, the Earl´s heir Jimmy Yoxall—but she wants to spend a lot more time with Jimmy´s fiancée. The irrepressible Miss Fenella Carruth, with her laughing eyes and lush curves, is the most glorious woman Pat´s ever met, and it quickly becomes impossible to remember why she needs to stay at arm´s length. But while the women´s attraction grows, the tensions at Rodington Court get worse. Affairs, secrets, betrayals, and blackmail come to light. And when a body is discovered with a knife between the shoulderblades, it´s going to take Pat and Fen´s combined talents to prevent the murderer destroying all their lives.

First published in 1845. Struwwelpeter (variously translated as ´´slovenly´´ or ´´shock-headed´´ Peter) has become widely recognized as one of the most popular and influential children´s books ever written. Heinrich Hoffmann was a Frankfurt physician. Unhappy with the dry and pedagogic books available for children at the time, he wrote and illustrated Struwwelpeter as a Christmas present for his three-year-old son. The book relates in verse and pictures the often gruesome consequences that befall children who torment animals, play with matches, suck their thumbs, refuse to eat, fidget at meals, etc.Written in rhyming couplets and illustrated by the author, the book was an immediate success. It has since gone through hundreds of editions and been published in almost every European language. The present volume reprints 25 color plates from a German edition (including a bonus plate done for the 100th edition in 1876) with the reset text of a standard English translation. Also included are the full German text and an afterword with a brief biography of the author and note on how the book came to be written.Children, bibliophiles, antiquarians?any lover of time-honored tales for children?will welcome this new edition of the classic German story.Content is optimized for tablet.
In 1857, Charles Dickens paired up with his close friend and fellow Victorian novelist Wilkie Collins to produce this interesting novella. Said to have been inspired by the Sepoy Mutiny of that year, the tale scrutinizes the moral impact of colonialism and lauds the bravery of a regiment of Marines tasked with the responsibility of protecting a community of British expats from an encroaching swarm of dangerous pirates. In his short stories, such as this, you see a completely different side to his style, writings and topics. This is quite a swashbuckling story of pirates, battles, imprisonment, escape and silver. To add to the fun if it, the story was set around Belize. In parts, quite similar us style to Robinson Crusoe. During the river and jungle depictions, quite reminiscent of Nick Bougas' 'Bodhu and the lost temple of King Nanchancaan'.
