For nearly eight years, Francesca has worked hard to build her companies into something strong, creative and successful. Upon the advice of her heart, Francesca plans a vacation to Paris, France; where she really needs to unwind. Once her vacation starts, she accidently runs into (literally) a hot, charming and sweet Frenchman in the hall of the same hotel she is at. His charming, and handsome name is Pierre. Love at first sight feelings fills the corridor of the hotel in that brief interlude. What Francesca couldn’t see was the dark horizon that lay before her feet in her future, as awe love struck blindness shielded her from her logical perception. After her move to Paris, and once Pierre finally and completely had her; he quickly turned evil and insane with delusions of grandeur and paranoia. With the aide of his bodyguards; Adrian and Luc, the three men control her and her every move. Paris, France was now her prison and she became its inmate. How can Francesca escape the clutches of the muscle and determination of Pierre and his muscled, chiseled meat heads? Will she get out of Paris and return to the safety of New York City? Or

This is a most unusual chronicle of the events of one man during the Great War. A professional soldier at the outbreak, Edward Roe was one of the first to cross over to France in 1914 and as such fought in the early battles of the war and took part in the Retreat from Mons. He was there for the crossing of the Marne and Aisne, the dreadful fighting at Ploegsteert and for the extraordinary events during the first Christmas.Remarkably he witnessed the debacle at Gallipoli and was part of the rear-guard of the Army during the re-embarkation and evacuation of the Peninsula. Thereafter the scene shifts to Mesopotania and the Tigris Corps in the attempt to relieve General Townshend at Kut. Wounded he returned for the final campaign that captured Baghdad.

Many books have been written about pilots of the Royal Flying Corps but the men on the ground, who kept the planes in the air and the guns firing, have been sadly neglected - and yet their role was a vital one. This truly remarkable book, the production of which must have seemed an impossible task, has more than remedied the situation. The authors have managed to locate all the non-commissioned airmen who enlisted in the RFC prior to the outbreak of war in August 1914, and for each one they have provided a mini-biography. The length of each entry varies, available records being what they are, but detail is provided for over 1,400 men. For those who became pilots, details of their certificates are given. Statistics include the establishment of the Corps at various times and there is a list of non-commissioned ranks as well as notes on uniforms, badges etc. There is a full record of works consulted at the Public Record Office and an excellent bibliography.

Includes the First World War Illustrations Pack – 73 battle plans and diagrams and 198 photos “An ‘Old Contemptible’ recounts the campaign of 1914. At the outbreak of the First World War, units of the British regular army-the B. E. F-were despatched to the continent to assist the French in an attempt to stem the tide of the advancing Imperial German Army as it marched inexorably towards Paris. The enemy viewed the ‘Tommies’ as ‘that contemptible little army.’ In that way peculiar to the British the insult became a byword for courage and honour as the highly trained and motivated soldiers in khaki demonstrated just what a contemptible little army could do. However, this was a war of attrition and despite the ‘contemptibles’ magnificent performance the ‘grey horde’ could not initially be halted. What followed was the memorable retreat from Mons. The author of this book was a subaltern officer serving in one of the county regiments of the B. E. F and chose as his title for this book the proudly worn designation ‘Contemptible.’ Although the book was written under a pseudonym it is widely believed that the writer was Arnold Gyde who served with the South Staffordshire Regiment
