Format: Kindle Edition
Alpha Fever: 22 Sizzling Contemporary and Paranormal Romance Stories (Alpha Heat & Alpha Fever) I've read The Butterfly Collector from Muffy Wilson from this box set so far. From the beginning I was hooked. I love stories that have depth and this one has it! Oliver meets Victoria who preys upon men with disabilities, but it is so much more than that. This story is hopeful and enlightening!
Not to mention seductive, arousing and completely sexy! I wouldn't expect anything different from the author. I've read several of her books and will be looking forward to more of them.
I can't wait to read the rest of the stories in this box set!!!!

Brilliant start to new series!, 6 Mar. 2016

A is for Abigail (Sixpenny Cross Book 1)
Some authors just have the knack of getting it right, don’t they? I didn’t think that I would enjoy reading a short novella, but Victoria Twead has brought her skills once again to this new genre, a switch from the runaway success of her main Old Fools series. The name of the village/series is an evocative masterpiece. I liked the simpleness of this new book, the setting, the words and actions of the Dorset village people taking me back a few years.
Damn, I shall have to get the next one now…
What an Adventure!

An engaging story told in well-crafted prose. Ideal material for parent and child reading, it's enhanced by high-quality illustrations. The storyline involves situations that arouse our emotions. Without being preachy, it demonstrates morality: a combination that is difficult to achieve. If you and your child love animals and adventure, and are eager to learn more about life in Africa, then this book is sure to appeal.

Prunes for Breakfast: One Man's War Based on a True Story
I have been contemplating on what I wanted to say about this book for some time now as I have read it twice. This memoir takes us on a documented journey in the time of WWII and beyond through the letters of his father. The author does a fantastic job of compiling the letters and filling in the blanks to tell us a story, with documentation and artful skill. It may be a memoir of sorts but it is still a story, and one I'm glad the author shared with us. Well done John Searancke!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. This book has definitely helped me to understand a little more about war and how it has affected the personal lives surrounding it. I look forward to reading more from this author!

A good adventure is one you survive. A great adventure occurs, when not only do you survive, but you learn something from it. Ms. Joyce survived not only one, but also two great adventures. While she details her adventures from a first person narrative, including many personal details, it also highlighted how little respect women were afforded even in the 1970’s. From Ms. Joyce not having control of her money to her husband making the decisions that involved both of them.
This enlightening memoir included growth and insight along with her travelogue touches. It also took me back to a time where traveling across the world was not an easy thing, and was often dangerous. Kudos to Ms. Joyce for being lucky in this lifetime and in all the others too.

Varied stories which kept me reading
By Rukia the Reader on March 4, 2016
This was not my usual preferred genre; as an anthology the book is made up of diversified short stories, romance, horror, sci-fi, inter mingled with poetry, and in general, is well written.
I began reading the first short story about a self help group and slowly became interested as to where this particular story was leading. The conversations varied from irrelevant to interesting and yes, the ending did leave me thinking that there was a lesson to be learnt. Then came a short piece of prose which I thought at the time to be out of place. This was followed by another short story, more prose, and I suddenly realized I was actually beginning to enjoy most of the stories in this book.
Each story had its own meaning, from unrequited love and robotic chairs to zombie dating. The various pieces of prose served to refresh the palette ready for the next change of short story genre.
Although at first I had pre-conceived ideas as to what reader satisfaction I would get from this book, I found that I did enjoy the change of topics, underlying meanings and even refreshing poems.
The only negative was that the cover does not portray the variation of reading enjoyment inside

Reader Review submitted by Book Club representative John Lock
The foreword informs the reader that a group of writers got together, picked a theme (Dread) and then collated their individual contributions to form an anthology of short stories and poems. Whilst a couple of these contributions did appear to be hastily compiled, the majority were well thought out and effectively written.
From the opening story depicting the dread of an unknown stalker, to the final contribution of a serial killer on the 10 Freeway, the stories, in the main, are as portrayed, dark and anxiety-inducing. The poems are thought-provoking, from the threat of Mr. Bark to the poignant Wrath Of A Limbless God.
Whilst maybe not everybody's genre, the stories are written with a trait of fear and dread, sometimes punctuated with subtle humour, but always interesting.
Gifts From The Dark is a balanced collection of stories and prose which enhance the dark side of our minds. The proceeds of this book are going to a well deserved charity and is therefore, well worth a read.
