Yes you did: not a wicked little devil but a good one, and boy, was he in a fix! ;Instead of doing bad things like forgetting his homework and playing tricks on his teachers, this little devil kept trying to be good. He did all his homework - and sometimes enjoyed it! He was never rude and he even encouraged sinners to say sorry. His parents were at their wits' end. So the little devil struck out on his own.On his quest to learn to be good, our little devil meets all kinds of people, from priests to police and from the Pope in Rome to Little Jesus himself. But will the angels let a little red devil with black horns into Heaven? ;In these thirteen tales, clever young people find nifty ways to overcome greedy kings, wicked witches, unlucky spells and even silly names. And there's a big dash of magic to help them on the way!

This book was released on 2014-02-24 with total page 381 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Sandra Martini thought she had it all, a storybook marriage, two loving children, a meaningful career in healthcare, and lots of corporate expense account goodies. But, all hell broke loose when husband Victor met Franklin Ryman, a wealthy, "tarnished" member of Wall Street's dark-side dealmakers, known as "the lunatic fringe." The morally bankrupt Ryman guaranteed Victor no experience was necessary to become a Wall Street zillionaire, other than "Follow the Leader." Smitten with the notion of becoming filthy rich at the age of 37, Victor waved goodbye to his carefully-cultivated career on Madison Avenue to launch a questionable IPO (Initial Public Offering) with Ryman. Reluctantly, Sandra agreed to join "the love of her life" on a breath-taking roller-coaster though a seamy side of Wall Street that professional dealmakers deny exists. A world where the only color that matters is green. When the roller coaster stops, Victor and Sandra are financially and morally bankrupt, their marriage is in shambles, and Victor contemplates a bizarre version of suicide to make amends.

Because of his steadfast denial to follow any orders, he is kept in isolation in Alaska where his activity is seriously limited and closely monitored. There are many who fear he will one day unleash his powers against humans as well as vampires. Have nine hundred years of exile made Zarek too vicious to be redeemed? The gods want Zarek dead but reluctantly agree to allow justice goddess Astrid to judge him. Astrid has never yet judged a man innocent, and yet there is something about Zarek that tugs at her heart. He views even the smallest act of kindness with shock and suspicion. But while Astrid struggles to maintain her impartiality in the face of her growing attraction to Zarek, an executioner has already been dispatched...

Book excerpt: When DCI Kelso Strang hears that an old friend from Police College days suspects there is corruption in her local station at Halliburgh in the Borders of Scotland, he sends her down undercover so they can act before a major scandal erupts. Anna Harper’s brilliant literary novels are international best-sellers. Her friend and housekeeper Marta Morelli ensures that her private and professional life run smoothly and Anna, acclaimed, rich and elegant, has everything a hugely successful woman could want – except peace of mind. They both live with the knowledge of what they have done and the gnawing worry that one day it might come to light. When Anna’s son, Felix, dies of an overdose that may well have been a mistake and her daughter, Cassandra, has an accident that may well have been just that, she refuses to accept reassurance from the police. Just as the situation becomes critical, the Beast from the East roars in bringing chaos and Strang – engaged now in a life-or-death struggle – can do nothing but rage and wait for the thaw.

Rating Book: 4.0/5 (99 users)

Download or read book This Little Piggy written by Bea Davenport and published by Legend Press Ltd. This book was released on 2014-10-01 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The author of In Too Deep delivers a “gripping, devastating and utterly absorbing” thriller of a shocking murder and a community in turmoil (Emma Kavanagh, author of The Missing Hours). It’s the summer of 1984 and there is a sense of unease on the troubled Sweetmeadows estate. The residents are in shock after the suspicious death of a baby and tension is growing due to the ongoing miners’ strike. Journalist Clare Jackson follows the story as police botch the inquiry and struggle to contain the escalating violence. Haunted by a personal trauma she can’t face up to, Clare is shadowed by nine-year-old Amy, a bright but neglected little girl who seems to know more about the incident than she’s letting on. As the days go on and the killer is not found, Clare ignores warnings not to get too close to her stories and in doing so, puts her own life in jeopardy. Praise for Bea Davenport’s In Too Deep “[A] moody, disquieting debut [that] focuses on an unlikely friendship between two women.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A tense and suspenseful debut.”—Margaret Murphy, author of Darkness Falls “A taut and suspenseful psychological thriller which marks her as a writer to watch and an exciting new voice in crime fiction.”—But Books Are Better “One of those compulsive reads that draws you in from the start . . . a clever story.”—Cleopatra Loves Books

Book excerpt: What would you do if Satan confronted you one day? The Devil's Edge is a sometimes witty, sometimes twisted collection of short stories by author M. L. Barrios that shows Satan doing his best to exact his pound of human flesh from everyday folks just trying to get through life with all their fingers and toes. Take Allison, ready to jump and end it all, rather than face her problems, but for the dark man, who suddenly appears, turning something like simple suicide into a real mess. Or there's Jeremy, the brilliant and greedy scientist who wants to know it all, literally, and he ends up knowing more than he bargained for, with the help of a dark stranger. And then there is Rex, the skeptical, but ambitious, reporter who doesn't believe in Devils, even when they wear the right costume, but he learns a cautionary tale about humility the hard way. Each challenges the Great Deceiver and faces his or her own Faustian bargain: some win, some lose, and some lose everything. Written with dark humor and masterful prose, The Devil's Edge is pure entertainment that will keep you thinking while it surprises you with unexpected twists and turns.
