Kensington Gore's Hammered Horrors - Narrow Doors by Christopher Long
5.0 out of 5 stars darkly addictive, 2 Sep 2014
A girl from nothing, receives a mysterious letter from a solicitor about her natural mother. Although, she had a good life with her foster parents, the call of her blood line was a mystery Laura needs to solve.

Learning the truth of why she was taken into care, Laura can not believe it because she has no memory of it. Haunted by dreams, which may be latent memories or an over active imagination- she contacts the solicitor. Laura starts to rapidly change at an alarming rate; as if almost possessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly written, 2 Sep 2014
“First to fall” is a multi-layered tense legal thriller. It is a gripping novel that keeps you hooked from the start.

I read this book in less than 24 hours, because I just… Read more

Celtic Love Knot (Choc Lit) by Angela Britnell
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 29 Aug 2014
Angela Britnell does it again. Some how she manages to bring her down home Tennessee charm to everything she touches; this time she blends a “little bit country” with the mysticism of Cornwall.

Olivia, Tennessee’s latest import from the States, arrives in Cornwall to research its old legends and meet Lanyon – Cornwall’s own modern-day Mr. Darcy.

Lanyon’s heart is frozen from loneliness and past heart breaks, choosing to live the life of a reclusive hermit- until Olivia melts his heart and brings him back to life.

Olivia is smart and sassy and takes no gumpf from Lanyon and that playful tension turns into an exciting romance filled story.
