Sienna Lloyd describes their sensual and fascinating relationship with eloquence. A troubling, enchanting book at the crossroads between Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey!
This is my sixth collection of short stories. Virtually all the stories in those earlier collections are true, describing incidents from my life, memories that have stayed with me . This latest collection is no different. It contains tales, some from more than fifty years ago, about living with my Irish Rebel mother, about the marriages and jobs and holidays I've had - and even about my first cat. If I've not written them in the first person, I've disguised myself as Dan or Brian.
But this latest collection is particularly poignant for two reasons. Almost a year ago, I lost my soulmate and muse of twenty-five years to cancer. Not long after Alison's passing, I penned a story about her last day, which I'm proud to have included in the collection.
This year also marks the centenary of Ireland's Easter Rising of 1916, an event that has always been close to my heart, that was even closer to my mother's heart, and that fired her father, Patrick, to become a hero for his country. To ...
One door, eight stories.
The Green Door opens into all times and places, from the werewolf-stalked streets of Victorian England to fantastic worlds where swords gleam, musket balls fly, and lasers zap. Time-travellers visit it in search of lost loves. Scoundrels go there to fence their ill-gotten doomsday weapon plans. Those who dwell in the shadow of the past prowl it for answers so they can move on. If you have unfinished business, enter The Green Door and see what answers await -- though they may bring tragedy as easily as triumph.

Sometimes, otherworldly beings reach out to you in strange and mysterious ways. They may have a request for you to fulfill, or maybe they simply take pleasure in terrifying you senseless. It's even possible that they just want your help in creating something beautiful. If you're lucky, you might even live to tell the tale... or maybe not.

This Short Pack was put together because some of the fans asked for all the currently released King Henry Shorts to be in one, easily readable place. Please understand that it contains no 'new' material, but instead combines the already published works of "Little King Henry", "Conquering Hero", "Friendship is Madness", "Second Take", "Griefing", and "Meet the Bonnies." The only reason you should purchase King Henry Short Pack One is because you're new to the series, you want this ease-of-use formatting, or because you're a horrible, horrible, no-good long-time fan and have yet to purchase the shorts separately, in which case lucky you! King Henry Short Pack One is 50% off the price of buying the shorts separately! Now, this preface will be enough to forestall any reviews claiming the author is a horrible, double-dipping %@&!, right?
