Tess – Valkyrie Awakening by Andres Mann

Valkyrie-Awakening
This book combines two previously published novels: Tess Awakening and Tess Valkyrie. Since the second novel is a sequel, the combination provides the full story of Tess’s confrontations with the evil Amir.
A fast paced action novel set during the second Gulf War in Iraqi, three remarkable people are caught in a web of obsession and deceit. Tess is a military helicopter pilot; beautiful, aggressive and relentless. She gradually awakens as real woman due to the love of two men. Jake is a brilliant CIA operative that saves her from committing a mistake that could affect her career. Amir is a wealthy, sophisticated but dissolute Iraqi general who initially captures Tess during a battle and becomes obsessed with her. Tess must fulfill a promise that involves taking something from Amir. Tess and Jake attempt to go after him in Istanbul, Paris and London. Amir persuades her to spend time with him in France and England in exchange for what she is seeking. Here she meets Fadime, his alluring and decadent sister. In the end, Amir deceives Tess. She returns to Iraq, flying dangerous missions and rescuing wounded soldiers. An unforeseen event changes everything.
Tess and Amir square off in an epic struggle to define their destinies. Aided by Jake, Tess’s friend and co-pilot Carmen and their colleagues, Tess must overcome Amir’s vicious attacks motivated by his continuing obsession with her. They repeatedly clash in a succession of encounters taking place in Baghdad, Amman, Istanbul, Sorrento and New York. Carmen finally meets her soul mate in Nicola, who helps her overcome the traumas of her youth and becomes a valuable member of their team. The two women respond to their challenges by drawing on their skills as fierce warriors, battling the evil Amir, who not only hurt Tess but plans to take over the Iraqi government. Their struggle leads to a series of violent and bloody battles in the air and on the ground. A heartbreaking loss at the end is redeemed by a final poignant resolution.

The sensual scenes are integral to the story, but they are not the sole focus.

Britt by Alan Hardy

Britt-CoverDEGENERATE FLOOSIES…DASTARDLY GERMAN SPIES…DIRTY OLD MEN…SOPWITH CAMELS…AND A VIRGINAL HERO AND HEROINE WHO ARE ENGLAND’S ONLY HOPE….

1918. England faces defeat. Germany looks set to triumph. Only one man and one woman can save England.

Wriggles is the Royal Flying Corps’ greatest ace. Can he prevent a dastardly German spy ring from getting top-secret information out of France? Is he completely out of his depth in a world of devilish scoundrels, and flouncing, unashamed, near-naked scarlet women?

Britt, his childhood sweetheart, is working as a nurse at a hospital near Paris. Forever pining for the lost innocence of her childhood, she too has problems. Adrift in a world of dirty old men and dissolute hussies, she is fast approaching mental breakdown. She finds purpose in life as a slayer of German spies. Convinced as she is that German male spies have snakes growing out from between their legs, they are quite easy to identify. Another obsession of hers is to discover what Wriggles has between his legs…

As well as twists and turns of plot, exciting aerial combats, and a host of characters, from the suave, bollocks-obsessed Major Mullen to sexy, black-haired, pouting Marianne casting amorous eyes over our virginal hero, there unfolds (in the story of Britt and Wriggles) one of the greatest love-stories ever told. Will it end happily, or will Wriggles end up with a bullet through his head, and Britt strait-jacketed in a mental institution?

This is a novel of sexual and martial comedy, with no-holds-barred excitement and thrills, and more. It explores two flawed individuals who, heartbreakingly unable to come to terms with an adult world, begin to draw closer and closer together and discover feelings hitherto unknown to them. It is a sympathetic portrayal of two children trapped in adult bodies, and how one of them, Britt, tries to dig her way out of her schizophrenic nightmare with a courage and determination which deserves to succeed…

Will Britt manage to save herself..? And will Britt and Wriggles save England..? Will they find true love? Or does death and madness await them in a world dominated by Germany and its depraved supporters?

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
I’m UK-based, and a director of an English language school for foreign students. Married, with one daughter. I have now written five novels. I would describe them as surreal novels with plenty of comedy, satire, humor, romance, sex and adventure. They’re shocking, original and respectful of nothing and nobody. You have been warned. I’m also a poet (poetry pamphlets: Wasted Leaves, 1996; I Went With Her, 2007).
The three published so far are BRITT, GOOD QUEEN BETH, and GABRIELLA.
GOOD QUEEN BETH is a no-holds-barred savage attack on the monarchy, ‘celebrity-bimbo-culture’, and reality TV shows; it is totally non-PC in its attitude to the state of the nation, the monarchy, sex, women, anything and everything… Be prepared to be stimulated, shocked and appalled. It’s quite raw in its depiction of sexual deviancy and perversion, but allies this with an exciting portrayal of a modern revolution, and, let me tell you, a great love-story between its main protagonists, Beth and Jason.
BRITT is set in France during World War One, and is a comic, exciting tale of derring-do, spies, aerial dog-fights…and sexual shenanigans…with officers, and ladies, of a dissolute disposition and sexually experienced swagger. Ahem! Need I say more? In contrast to this world of sexual abandon and experience, we have Wriggles of the Royal Flying Corps and Britt, his childhood sweetheart. Both are innocents in a world they don’t understand, and can’t relate to. Britt, in particular, is close to being mentally unhinged…and yet, with a devilishly cunning German spy ring about to escape with top-secret information that might well bring about England’s defeat, they are England’s only hope. Oh, and there’s also a great love story that unfolds heartbreakingly between the two of them… Will they be able to save England, and find true love…? Or does death and madness await them in a world dominated by Germany and its depraved supporters?
I think GABRIELLA is a story that’s been buzzing around in my head for years, and it demanded to be written down. Adolescent love (and teenage fascination with sex) is a pretty significant time and experience for us all. The idea of a love-story set around a school cricket match has its roots in an earlier pimply-faced version of me when at school and the scary, obsessive ideas that went through my adolescent head. When I sat down to write the story, it automatically turned into a bawdy, comical narration of a young man’s faltering (though very sweaty) first experience of love and sex. But as well as being, I hope, a good, exciting read, I think GABRIELLA can also be seen as a critique of England’s wretched class-ridden, monarchy-loving society. Check it out.
As well as my poetry, I am currently revising two other novels: one an original take on the theme of time-travel, with a good many stings in the ‘tale’; and the other recounting a story of obsessive, near-pathological love. Watch this space.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wondered what happened to the characters in boys’ adventure books when they grew up…or came into contact with the real, adult world, when, basically, they discovered, or didn’t discover sex. That was the genesis for the idea of a story whose hero and heroine are like two children in adult bodies, forced to confront an evil world of corruption, sexual deviancy, pretence and horror.

GOOD QUEEN BETH is a no-holds-barred savage attack on the monarchy, ‘celebrity-bimbo-culture’, and reality TV shows; it is totally non-PC in its attitude to the state of the nation, the monarchy, sex, women, anything and everything… What inspired me to write it? I think it was exactly that: frustration at the state of the nation, in terms of a bloated, pampered monarchy and its ordinary people fobbed off with ridiculous reality-shows and half-witted bimbos held up for them to salivate over. Be prepared to be stimulated, shocked and appalled. Also the theme fits in quite nicely with the mass of revolutions that we’ve been having recently, only this one is a bit bizarre, led as it is by half-naked bimbos. It’s quite raw in its depiction of sexual deviancy and perversion, but allies this with an exciting portrayal of a modern revolution, and, let me tell you, a great love-story between its main protagonists, Beth and Jason. The story is of course surreal, a bit crazy, over-the-top and yet (I would say) completely riveting.

Kydona by Thomas Krug

Kydona-Cover-Final-JPGNamed for heaven, the kingdom of Elessia once served as a beacon to the world. Now its name has become a byword for decadence. When Lord Prince Marcus hears the beginnings of a vast conspiracy from the lips of his dying mother, he sets out to uncover the motives lurking behind the war his father waged. With the help of Kaelyn—a sharp-tongued courtesan nursing a long-hidden desire—and Vernon de Gauthier—a near-disturbingly prolific womanizer with a weakness for apples—Marcus slowly unearths the truth: his country lies on the brink of collapse. And soon, the vanquished nation of Kydona will rise to settle a generation-old score.

In Elessia’s debauched court, the threat goes unheeded. Marcus’s romances bloom and just as quickly wither. Blood is shed, lives extinguished. It matters little. Quarrel and murder, lust and love, right and wrong—the lines that separate these are hopelessly blurred in the throes of court intrigue. And the difference between each rests on a knife edge so sharp that even a hero cannot tell them apart.
