CHEATING TO SURVIVE - 
Can Cheating on Your Husband Bring Unimaginable Pleasure or Completely Destroy Your World? 

To her three daughters, Heather is a fun-loving, silly mom. Her co-workers at Norlyn Plains Hospital think she has it all, including a handsome lawyer husband. 
But when a flirtatious new doctor chooses Heather to spend his down time with, he reminds her of the man she regrettably gave up so many years before. Each interaction breathes new life into her and she gives in to the doctor’s seductions, threatening her fifteen year marriage. 
Her co-workers Victoria and Catherine, are stunned by her actions, but when they see the positive transformation in Heather, and question their own crumbling marriages, they wonder if she has the right idea. 

Can cheating on their husbands bring the three of them happiness? Or will they be destroyed by the consequences?

EVERY FIVE YEARS- After watching her parents struggle financially for years, Heather Di Pietro, the zany, non-conformist, is persuaded by her best friend to date the rich and popular Lance Milanesi, believing he is the path to her happiness. 

But when Nicolo, a vibrant new employee starts at her job, she second-guesses her choice. The close friendship that develops between the two of them is quickly destroyed before their true feelings are revealed, but a chance encounter reunites them five years later. 

Nicolo has spent his entire life making others happy, while taking the back seat to his own happiness, When Heather's dynamic personality finds a way into his heart, she makes him believe he can conquer the world, something no one else has been able to do. 

Torn between losing each other again, and the emotions they can no longer suppress, they launch into a love affair more powerful than they ever imagined. Spending their days on the beach and their nights in each other’s arms, Heather discovers what love is supposed to feel like, and knows now that she must leave Lance. 

With love this perfect, what tears them apart a second time? 

Heather and Nicolo cross paths every five years, giving them the opportunity to recover what they lost. Will they ever reach out and grasp what was meant to be, or will their fears continue to keep them apart?

"Khalid Muhammad's +Agency Rules - Never an Easy Day at the Office was a very well told, fast paced, action thriller. The author takes his time setting the stage and giving us the necessary background to lay out the groundwork for the story. The story, itself, is set in modern day #Pakistan, about a fairly well to do young man, named Kamal Khan, and his journey in the military. Khan rises from a regular soldier to something so much more. When Khan uncovers a large scale #terrorist plot and a huge cache of arms is discovered the action really gets going.

There were many layers to the story and Mr. Muhammad does a great job of weaving them together while painting vivid pictures in the readers head. While I am unfamiliar with Pakistan, I found it very easy to follow along with the story and the scenes. I thought this was an excellent political/espionage #thriller. The reader gets a peek into Black Ops as well as military #Intelligence. Agency Rules had everything one could want in this genre, #politics, bribery, double talk, #terrorism, interrogations, #suspense, #mystery and plenty of #action.

This book is highly #recommended. Five Stars!!"

Rydin' the Storm Out by PJ Fiala

Storms roll into our lives when we least expect them. It’s our passion and desire that help us hang on and keep Rydin’ the Storm Out.

#5Stars By United Indie Book Blog "Rose's Book Snobs" This review is from: Rydin' the Storm Out: Book 2 of the Rolling Thunder Series (Kindle Edition)
Rydin" the Storm Out is the second book in this series. I haven't read the first one, but this can be read as a stand alone novel.

I really enjoyed this story! It was refreshing to have a male MC (Ryder), that was just a decent, kind and sensitive man!
The female MC (Molly) was a sweetheart too (although somewhat damaged by her past (which catches up to her).
I just love how shy Ryder was able to grow into himself. Family was such a huge part of his life, and he wasn't afraid to ask them for help when he needed it, or advice.
And how Molly tried so hard to be the person she wanted to be.
There was a lot going on in this story, but it was put together in a way that you weren't overwhelmed and confused.
The struggles that Molly and Ryder go through left me on the edge of my seat at times! And the hot steamy bedroom/living room scenes... just WOW!
I hope to see Danny and Tammy's story soon!
I would recommend this book!
I was given this book as a gift from the author in exchange for an honest review.

  #FREE #kindle - Cult Classics for the Modern Cult, edited by Michelle Browne and including an item from yours truly, Ian H of England etcetera.

10 stories inspired by “B-Movies” and from ten different, slightly odd authors. My offering labours under the title of ‘One Saturday, Almost 2,000 Years A.D.’

I harbour an intense, visceral dislike for the bulk of the film output from Hollywood and from Hollywood clone organisations such as Canal+ and the British Board of Film Rubbish or whatever name they labour under this week. To my mind the output is formulaic, unimaginative, produced and directed by accountants and thus incredibly, mind-bogglingly, spleen-shrivellingly dreary.

Set in oooh – New Yoik? I am sick to my tortoiseshell varifocals of the wholly foreign but constantly in my face city that is New York. Boy meets girl  or any of the other very thinly disguised variations? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz... remove my liver now, while I’m fully anaesthetised. Even the #SciFi is universally militaristic and violent, everyone is in uniform or is some painful caricature of an academic dimnut and there are guns everywhere a la John Bloody Wayne in space. Get off yer alien and drink yer protein shake, Captain Sir Ma'am Sir.

Whoo-hoo – set in England? Well, no, not really; Essex is not England, London is not the be all and end all and most especially “gangstas wiv sornoff shogguns” are not me, mine or anyone I have ever known. We do not all sound as though we’re from the East End of London and grew up barefoot and in rags, we don’t all live in the dark, we don’t all eat every meal in a greasy spoon cafe and we don’t spend our lives in pubs or running market stalls.

Thus, I spend what film-watching time I have seeking out films made by folk in (and preferably also set in) France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Ireland, Australia - ANYWHERE that isn’t a Hollywood clone or a faux-Hollywood “wannabe”. I don’t even care if it has sub-titles, I’ll listen carefully and learn a little of the language. Scenery that isn’t downtown you-know-where or isn't Californian scrub? Yee-ess, hallelujah, draw the curtains, Doris, and turn up the volume.

As well as searching far and wide to escape the clutches of vacuous, talentless, plastic himbos and bimbos breaking fingernails and being persecuted by some government agency because they’ve cracked mankind’s greatest eco-problem, that of making “hamburgers” calorie-free, I also search the past. There are some gems out there, filmed before the accountants took over the roles of producer and director.

There are also some gems within gems. One of these is an actress by the name of Margaret Rutherford. She didn’t use drugs, she never once appeared in a film naked and if she ever had plastic surgery then it went horribly wrong because she had a face made of droopy rubber and had she not always worn tweeds over something supportive made of stout canvas she’d have kicked her tits out in front of her knees at every step. In short, a wonderful real woman. She was a brilliant actress and could knock the spots off anything that currently drags its itchy canine backside across a red carpet.

My story in Cult Classics for the Modern Cult pays special homage to Margaret. I have taken her out of her tweeds and put her in a faux-fur leotard. I’ve swapped her customary tricycle for a wooden club. I have though, left her in her usual role as the heroine of the story (although I suspect that, for once, Mr Stringer is about to get his oats). Margaret battles through breakfast, battles through adversity, takes responsibility for her own protection and doesn’t come out the other end with some senior role in industry for which she is patently unqualified and unsuited. In short, she’s a woman, not a Barbie.

I like to think that it’s a spot of very #British #ScienceFiction with laughs.

And it’s FREE!

From the reviews it looks as though the critics hate it - and that surely has to be a good sign eh?

Just clickez-vous here and browse the links to the right of screen for your copy. http://www.dieselelectricelephant.co.uk/

Chin-chin and tickettyboo eh?

Have I mentioned FREE?

There's loads of other stuff there for you to browse too, although some of it is only "bargain" as opposed to totally FREE.
