Make Mine A Marine
Make Mine A Marine
Price: £0.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Very misleading title - not a typical military romance, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally unexpected content, strange storylines and the only good thing is the price with 0.99. It would be good to include some description of the content - kind of blur - so people know it is not a typical military romance storyline but strange mystical, paranormal and a hero who is 800 years old.

4.0 out of 5 stars and good illustrations. If Usborne would only do a Series ..., 10 Feb. 2015
My 7 year old daughter loves it so much, she now wants to dress up as a musketeer for World Book day. It is not too difficult to read, a lovely story, obviously a lot shorter than the original, and good illustrations.

If Usborne would only do a Series 4, my daughter is going through the books with astonishing speed. They are a good alternative to the usual "junk food" of princesses, kittens and fairies.


Napoleon and Marie-Louise: The Second Empress
Napoleon and Marie-Louise: The Second Empress
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Napoleon and his time, 4 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a great book. The title is slightly misleading as it also covers the time prior to the marriage but it shows how Marie Louise's opinion of Napoleon was formed.

It doesn't overwhelm the reader with too much detail without sacrificing important parts. I have read various Napoleonic biographies and books about the time and other European countries and I think it is good for the less-informed reader to get a good grip about the Napoleonic times and would easily invite to move to more detailed books about him and the period.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't use for make up, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my daughter more for play than practice. The main reason was that she could practice make up on it.

Well, the hair is ok, easy to brush and style. I cut it straight and it was no problem at all.

For the make-up: well my daughter can apply shop bought make up but we can't take it off easily. The only thing which works is nail varnish remover but this has now discouloured the eyes and partly took the colour away. Very disappointing.


The Nell Sweeney Historical Mysteries: A Six-Book Boxed Set
The Nell Sweeney Historical Mysteries: A Six-Book Boxed Set

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down., 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked them. Good mystery without too much romance going on. A believable main figure and the author finished the series before it lost steam.


The Army Doctor's Holiday Collection: Three Christmas Romances
The Army Doctor's Holiday Collection: Three Christmas Romances
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read for a rainy evening, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little gateway. Nothing too complicated. Fairly good written but the author should check that some things have a different name in the UK than in the US. Babies wear nappies here, not diapers.


Italian Christmas Wedding (Sweet Italian Christmas Book 3)
Italian Christmas Wedding (Sweet Italian Christmas Book 3)
Price: £0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Army Doctor series., 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It wasn't bad but I agree with others, the permanent negatives about England was a bit too much.


SEALs of Winter: A military romance superbundle
SEALs of Winter: A military romance superbundle
Price: £1.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste your money, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Apart from one book - A Seal for Christmas - the stories are awful. Most times it is just a countdown on how often and in what ways they can have sex, a storyline or a decent plot are totally missing.

Do not waste your money.


Brown Horse Duvet Cover & Pillowcase Set - Reversible Design
Brown Horse Duvet Cover & Pillowcase Set - Reversible Design

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a beautiful duvet set, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a beautiful duvet set, soft and the print is clear and gorgeous.

yes, it comes with a 80x80 pillow case as it is a German brand but I just got my daughter a matching pillow and the problem is solved.


Loving Sarah (The Caversham Chronicles Book 3)
Loving Sarah (The Caversham Chronicles Book 3)
Price: £2.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled heroine and bad novel, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really thought I like it as I enjoyed Book 1 and 2 of this series. How wrong I was. Sarah is a spoiled little girl wanting an adventure with no thought of the people she involves.

The hero is not better, the so-called dramatic secret he carries and unveils in the end - ok bad for the time the novel is set in but in no account as dramatic as the author made it sound.

The ending was rushed, lots of sugar coating and totally unbelievable. Not sure if I will keep it on my device.
