If, like me, you are a lover of short tales with a twist, or grew up excitedly awaiting each week those brilliant old TV shows such as Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected, Rod Serling's Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone, The Ray Bradbury Theater, and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, then this collection of twenty-seven mostly 500 words stories, nearly all with a twist, is for you. Some funny, some sad, some romantic, some diabolical, and all really, really short, perfect for a momentary escape during your day.
In a quiet village on a lonely mountain in the Mesopotamian desert, two births will come to shape the destiny of nations. One boy bed, the other branded. Would their strangeness unite them, or turn them into mortal enemies? As they struggle to make sense of a world that shuns the “other”, as they fight for the love of the one girl they desire, they will turn to their gods, only to discover that immortals are as fallible as men.”
**Note: This book is part of the "Perfect" series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.** The course of true love doesn’t always run smooth -- not even for millionaire bachelors… Everyone thought Beth Ann Bennet and Dr. Will Darcy had an unexpected romance in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (Perfect #1). Now, Beth’s best friend, Jane Henderson, and Will’s first cousin, Bingley McNamara, begin their own unlikely love story in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet (Perfect #2), which starts at the Bennet/Darcy wedding when the two of them find themselves in the roles of maid of honor and best man for the newlyweds. Jane is an interning school psychologist and a woman who wears an angelic mask in public, but she’s not as sweet tempered as she’d like everyone to believe. Turns out, she may have just crossed paths with the one person who’ll unnerve her enough to get her to reveal her true self. As for Bingley, he’s a wealthy, flirtatious, compulsively social guru of finance, who likes to wager on stocks and, let’s face it, on just about anything that strikes his fancy. But this dedicated ladies’ man may have finally met the woman who’ll challenge his bachelor ways! Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet…where life’s biggest gamble is the game of love.
