5.0 out of 5 stars History Fans and Tudorphiles Alike Will Adore Phoenix Rising, 19 May 2015
I'm not particularly familiar with Tudor history or historical fiction, but I wanted to see what Hunter S. Jones had created. Phoenix Rising is an emotional, creative read that greatly appealed to me. I loved the way the story was able to blend in both magic and astrology. The book is visually appealing, as well. Using the antiquarian fonts for the historical bits is exquisite. What can I say about this book? Hmm, be prepared for surprises. I think I might have started along the path to becoming a Tudorphile, this story captured and let fly something rather magical within me :)

Bravo Ms Jones - and more please, while we're at it ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams DO come true!, 7 May 2015
Deliciously tantalising in all the right places. These are the kind of dreams that never come true - but Jared and Candy might just stand a chance at making theirs last. The 1Night stand dating service is going to pull out all the stops for them and it will be up to the pair to do the rest... but not everything is at it seems - and since when does any romance go smoothly!!

Brilliantly entertaining read! 5 Stars all the way!!

A good all round mouse with scroll at a very reasonable price. It's not particularly well built, but you can't expect too much for the excellent price tag. Simply pop the USB into your laptop and go - plug and play. Doesn't get much easier than that. Would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fiddly., 3 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The design is lacking somewhat as it is a little too fiddly to clean. Pull this off, twist that, flip this x 4. The filter inside the wheel keeps coming off when I am hoovering and takes some considerable tweaking to get it back. Having said that, the suction is good, providing you keep the filters clean. I have to confess that I won't be buying this model again, however.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant letters and word practice!, 3 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love these wipe clean books. My little boy will play with them for hours, and then we can wipe and start all over again - for letters and word practice they are great fun. My only complaint is that the pens that they come with don't last very long and could do with being better quality - but the actual book is excellent :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad., 3 May 2015
The hazelnut bar tastes far superior - don't get me wrong, this is ok - but for a breakfast bar it's just OK. The plus side is for a chocolate crisp bar with only 2g of carbs, you can't go far wrong ;)

AMAZING. Powers through the ironing like you wouldn't believe and cuts down your chore times in half. Wouldn't be without it for a second. The best steam generator I have ever used by far!!

Great for getting little ones interested in writing their first letters - and there's plenty of games to help them with their pen control!! My little lad loves it!


TRAGIC: Rook and Ronin, #1 (Rook and Ronin Spinoff)
TRAGIC: Rook and Ronin, #1 (Rook and Ronin Spinoff)

4.0 out of 5 stars DEE-LICIOUS!, 3 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rook is tragic. The girl’s a serious mess and she has problems-a-plenty. Currently living in a homeless shelter after her ex brutally abused her, she now finds herself with no job and, more importantly, no money.

The heroine of the story spends her last ten bucks on a ridiculously expensive cup of coffee from Starbucks, even though she’s ravenously hungry and has no panties (someone stole them all – it’s true!) I pretty much fell in love with Rook at that point. It’s the kind of crazy assed thing I would do.

So, when a group of girls enter the (seriously overpriced but yummy) coffee shop, bitching about life in general, they throw away an invite for a modelling shoot. By a sheer twist of fate, she finds herself in Antoine Chaput’s modelling studio auditioning for the role of the ‘Tragic’ campaign. She’s reed thin, drop-dead beautiful, with long ebony hair and a general all-round tragic demeanour – so of course they love her – almost instantly.

Ronin

This guy is the all-round boy-next-door hottie and when he spies a lost soul, he just wants to wrap his arms around her and make it all better. He’s got one hell of a job on his hands because Rook isn’t going to trust anyone in a hurry.

When Rook spends the afternoon posing for a test shoot only to find out that she’s not getting paid for the experience, she crumples in a heap on the floor and howls her eyes out. Lucky for her, Ronin’s sister takes pity on her and in just a few hours Rook has a job, a place to stay and both clothes and panties (hoorah!). Although I’d say panties were overrated with the dashingly dishy Ronin around.

So, problem number one: How do you do a sexy modelling shoot with a girl who can’t be touched?

Ronin has more than a few problems in getting Rook relaxed for the camera, not least the need to fight his burgeoning attraction to her.

Rook’s well aware that sexy model Ronin is a player and she has similar anxiety attacks, albeit about different things, mostly how to get rid of his constant presence.

Rook: Ronin is a player, a user, and a control freak. And I want absolutely nothing to do with him.

Problem number two: Rook is not doing anything naked. Except with Ronin, of course ;) And that’s pretty much where all the trouble starts…

And this is where the story gets interesting. Rook is busy trying her hardest to stay away from bad boy Ronin, and Ronin, conversely, is trying his hardest to get his hardest parts close enough to Rook to do damage. The tragic campaign is going to give Ronin all kinds of advantages with wooing his lady, because he gets to put his hands on her almost daily, and it’s an impressive female with a hardened heart that can resist a good-looking male model with a cheeky sense of humour.

Problem number three: When Ronin finally manages to work his way into Rook’s good graces, she decides to accept a modelling contract with his best friend, who will be spray-painting her naked body with his body art designs for several weeks.

Ouch.

Verdict: This one’s a page-turner. It’s written in the first person, is full of emotion, and I was immediately drawn into Rook’s plight. The little insights you get into Rook’s world are not pleasant, but you quickly come to understand why she’s so skittish around men. Whether Ronin will be up to the challenge of helping her face her fears is anybody’s guess – but he’s got quite a job on his hands.
