Kidnapped by the House of Pleasure

by dirty brandi

Kidnapped by the House of Pleasure – A powerful story of a modern women’s adventure.

Welcome to the House of Pleasure. Some call it a brothel, but us ladies call it heaven

Residing high in the rocky mountain wilderness lies a secret mansion that only the wealthiest and most beautiful men know about. For a man to be accepted to the House of Pleasure, he pays a hefty fee, but more importantly, he must prove his proficiency in pleasing a woman. This is the story of how Anjanette found her bliss, by accident, on purpose.

Anjanette has always had a special place in her heart for the rocky mountains. When she was 15, her dad took her to Aspen, CO. in the springtime to plant tulips; an Aspen tradition. That was the last memory of her father before booze and hookers overtook his heart.

In memory of the father that he used to be, she still goes every spring to plant tulips with the rest of the town, but this year, her tulip trip takes another turn. Even if she can find her way back to society, will she want to?

Girth

by dirty brandi

“I said….I know you want to.”

His voice had gotten low, husky and deep.

“Shut the $%# up, you’re just making this awkward is all.”

“Really? Are you sure it’s not because I figured you out?”

He smirked.

The audacity of this asshole. Under normal circumstances I would probably give him an ass beating.
But strangely, my anger was replaced by something else. Something dark, tantalizing and tormenting.

Lust.

My biological clock just exploded.

Eighteen months. That’s how long I have to make a baby happen before it becomes one more broken dream.

Fate has a sick sense of humor, though. Its name is Hayden Shaw.

An Indecent Death

by David Anderson

“Just the book to sit down with on a rainy afternoon with a cup of hot tea (or toddy). The plot is compelling, the characters are finely-drawn with charming quirks and the sense of place is familiar enough to make the story as unsettling as it is enjoyable to read.” ~ Morley from Nova Scotia

“I really enjoyed this mystery. It kept me guessing all through the read. Trust me – I usually figure out the mystery before I finish the book. I hope to read more from this author.” – Review from Smashwords

“This is a riveting murder mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end! It’s skillfully written, with such plausible characters that you feel these people could be real. The plot is logically developed to a climax that you won’t see coming! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Det. Sgt. Drumm’s first case, and look forward to many more.” ~ Diane from Ontario

“This is an entertaining mystery that kept me guessing. I thought I had the murderer figured out and the detective sergeant didn’t know what he was doing. I was wrong.” ~ Ginney from Oregon

“This book is well written and very entertaining. Drumm is a great character, well developed, as are the others. Lots of possible suspects for the murder and the answer is revealed in a suspenseful way. I always enjoy the sub plots of the lives of the detectives and these are well done.” ~ Pat from Ontario

“I enjoyed this book immensely. The story was compelling, and Anderson did an excellent job of tying up myriad loose ends into a neat package.” ~ Jim from Florida

When sexy, seventh grade teacher Paula Noonan is found murdered in a nearby park, Detective Sergeant Nicholas Drumm of the York Police Services is called in.

Drumm’s previous experience as an elementary teacher comes in handy when the investigation leads him to Paula’s school, and a host of suspects, including the school’s creepy janitor, an abusive spouse, the principal, a moody and leering fifth grade teacher and the angry and aggressive father of one of her students.

If you are a fan of Louise Penny or Peter Robinson, you will love the twists and turns of An Indecent Death.

    Anna Karenina

    by Leo Tolstoy

    Anna Karenina is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, published in serial installments from 1873 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Tolstoy clashed with editor Mikhail Katkov over political issues that arose in the final installment (Tolstoy’s negative views of Russian volunteers going to fight in Serbia); therefore, the novel’s first complete appearance was in book form in 1878.

    Widely regarded as a pinnacle in realist fiction, Tolstoy considered Anna Karenina his first true novel, after he came to consider War and Peace to be more than a novel. Fyodor Dostoyevsky declared it “flawless as a work of art.” His opinion was shared by Vladimir Nabokov, who especially admired “the flawless magic of Tolstoy’s style,” and by William Faulkner, who described the novel as “the best ever written.” The novel remains popular, as demonstrated by a 2007 Time poll of 125 contemporary authors in which Anna Karenina was voted the “greatest book ever written.”

    Anna Karenina is the tragic story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother’s unbridled womanizing–something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others.

    A bachelor, Vronsky is eager to marry her if she will agree to leave her husband Karenin, a senior government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, the moral laws of the Russian Orthodox Church, her own insecurities, and Karenin’s indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky’s reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined infidelity, fearing loss of control.
