♥ Book Title : When Women Were Warriors Book II
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Book II, Tamras moved from her home into the lands beyond its border. In Book three, the stage widens further: she deals with the struggles of whole peoples. Caught up in intrigues that would once have been far above her, the heroine risks everything unless she can not only learn to swim in treacherous waters, but to master them. The heroine's inner journey continues to match her outer one. She must confront the meaning not only of personal love, but the love that extends beyond oneself and those we hold dear. Catherine Wilson's skill at tackling the big issues of love, meaning, and humanity is so deft that it all seemed, to me at least, to flow naturally from her narrative in a way I found technically quite breathtaking...." --from a review by Charles Ferguson on the Goodreads website "Being the third and last volume in a series I enjoyed immensely, I knew that I could expect this last book to deliver a happy and satisfying ending. What I didn't expect was the intricate and daring storyline of this last volume. It is bigger and broader than what has come before, and it is spectacular. ... this time the story unfolds on to a whole new level. More characters, more intrigue, greater losses, wonderful reunions. ... There's no taking the easy road here-the story opened up into unimagined dimensions to tell a tale that really is that of a hero. ..". When Women Were Warriors manages to blend mythic storytelling with characters who feel so real you could imagine stepping into the pages and having a conversation with them. A Hero's Tale skilfully weaves the questions of love, faith and fairness into a dramatic story; not only of a relationship between the main characters, but of a quest so much bigger it takes the breath away. There is everything you could wish for here - power struggles, forces for good and evil, dramatic tests of faith, daring rescues, fatal rivalry, but it is managed with such a deft hand that in the end it is all one beautiful story. What else is there to say? This is not just lesbian fiction, but a story about being human. It's not to be missed. --from a review by Kate Genet on the website, Kissed By Venus In Book III of the trilogy, Tamras must make her own hero's journey. She ventures into the unknown and encounters a more formidable enemy than any she has ever faced. Character is destiny, and the destiny of Tamras and all her people will depend upon choices that come less from the skills she has been taught than from the person she has become, from her own heart."Article| Catherine M.

♥ Book Title : We Were Warriors Once
☯ Full Synopsis : "We Were Warriors Once is a military-political suspense novel. It chronicles the careers of four officers from the 1960s to the 1990s. Military promotions are based on an up-or-out systemyou either progress within specified time frames or you get left behind. Many officers who retire from their military careers at the Pentagon go through the revolving door and return in short order either as defense contract employees or civil servants. Not infrequently, they return to the same office where they worked before retiring. The same holds true for many political appointees. Men who once worked in Washington go off for a period to high-level assignments with defense contractors and return to influential positions in government. These revolving doors can sometimes have unintended negative consequences. President, and former five-star general, Dwight D. Eisenhowers warning against the power of the military-industrial complex is well known. However, that complex is actually tri-foldmilitary, industrial, and political. We Were Warriors Once incorporates revised editions of two previously published novels, Duty and Character and Wrong Enemy, Wrong War, with entirely new material that plumbs deeper into the defense contractors influence on national defense policies. The officers who wear the uniforms of the United States armed forces are by in large extraordinarily dedicated men and women. But in the profession of war, sometimes even the best are tempted at times to stray from the straight and narrow."Article| Jeffrey M. Freeman| Statement ..."

Now that the mission to save the ruler of Ketaurrios is over, Celeste and her friends have been ordered to remain as guests in his home until the antidote they’d obtained purges the deadly toxin from his system. After days of waiting, Celeste is impatient to return to the human settlement and decides a visit to his quarters, a quick thank you, and an even shorter good-bye to the man she’s never met should be all she needs to appease him and be on her way. What she didn’t expect to find is the man who stole her heart, the one she thought she could trust to protect her family during the war—a broken promise which resulted in their deaths. Khyron is a warrior and the leader of his people. The war might be over but the past, in the form of a beautiful human female with flowing dark hair, haunts his thoughts and his dreams. Soon after waking from a healing induced sleep, he discovers Celeste is still alive and, once she realizes who he is, flees the city. He doesn’t care if his life is in danger from those who will do anything to keep him from uniting the humans and his people, or that leaving the protection of his home is inadvisable. He is determined to find Celeste and make amends for his mistakes, then claim the only female on the planet who makes his tail twitch and bears the intoxicating scent of his mate.

♥ Book Title : The Women Who Ruled India
☯ Full Synopsis : "`People say that I am a quarrelsome woman...? TARABAI, MARATHA QUEEN (1675?1761) The history of India, more often than not, is a history of the men who were in charge. Largely forgotten are the women who, even centuries earlier, shaped the fates of entire kingdoms. In The Women Who Ruled India, writer and researcher Archana Garodia Gupta revives 20 such powerful figures from the archives, offering us a glimpse of their fascinating lives. Among them are Begum Samru, a courtesan who went on to become the head of a mercenary army and the ruler of Sardhana; Didda of Kashmir, known for her keen political instinct and a ruthlessness that spared no one; Rani Abbakka of Ullal, the fearless queen who took on Portuguese colonizers in their heyday; and Rani Mangammal of Madurai, the famed administrator who built alliances at a time when going to war was the order of the day. These women and others like them built roads, instituted laws and were generous patrons of the arts and sciences. Their stories of valour and diplomacy, leadership and wit continue to inspire today. Peppered with anecdotes that showcase little-known facets of their personalities, the accounts in this book celebrate heroic rulers who ? `quarrelsome? though they might have been ? were iconoclasts: unafraid to forge new paths."Article| Archana Garodia Gupta| Statement ..."
