Before she could reach the usual ten feet of most giants, a fey queen offered her a potion to stunt her growth.
And it worked.
Now she's living her best life. Yes, she's six and a half feet tall, but she's passing as human, and she landed her dream job as a lawyer.
Best of all, she's dating her sexy new co-worker who doesn't mind that she's an inch taller than him, or that she's a virgin (not that she plans on keeping that label for long).
But all of her perfect plans for the future are thrown into jeopardy when the fey queen who controls her potion, forces her to defend a troll in a murder case who uses glamor to appear human.
Now, she'll have to carefully maneuver her way around a series of lies to keep her job, her secret, and her boyfriend.

The Gambler's Ghost and Other Racing Oddities is a collection of five humorous novellas and short stories set on the racecourses of Sydney from the 1920s to the 1980s.
What are they like? Perhaps imagine a collaboration between PG Wodehouse, AB 'Banjo' Paterson, Lennie Lower, Jay Cranley (Good Vibes/Let it Ride) and Geoffrey Chaucer (in 'Miller's Tale' mode) writing about some Australian racing 'tragics' with more ardour for horse racing than skill in picking winners.
The first, Ton Currie at Randwick, a Racing Fabliau, recounts how a group of cheap-enclosure regulars stumble upon a race tipping scam that is published in a daily racing form. Harry Calls a Winner deals with the temporary fall from grace of a race-caller who came to take too many swigs of whisky between calls.

700 hundred years ago, Dante, in his epic poem The Divine Comedy, told a story about the soul's journey after death, based on the Christian concepts of sin and punishment of his time. Because of the power of the story, many people still consciously or unconsciously buy into his story. Time for a rewrite. In Luigi's epic poem, we understand that Hell is not a place God sends sinners, but rather a place, here on Earth, that humans, mostly white men, have created for themselves and all creatures who live on our planet. In Purge-the-Story, Luigi's journey continues and we learn that in order to avoid the destruction of our planet and the life on it, we must change our story from the Judeo-Christian-Islamic story taking us towards the apocalypse to an Eco-Feminist, Partnership society that revers the Earth who gives us life.

Dear Sexy AF Intern,
I know you don't particularly care that I'm the CEO of this company, and you're just an intern. I also know you're not impressed by my power or my wealth, and that's fine.
You think you've got me all figured out from working alongside me for two weeks, but you don't know me. Not really.
You don't know that I'm a single dad to twin toddlers, or that those two little girls matter more to me than this entire hotel chain.
I'm not interested in starting something deep and meaningful, but what I am interested in is the way your body reacts to mine when we're in the same room. You probably assume the concentration on my face is work-related, when in reality, I'm figuring out which I want more--to nail you against the wall, or to bend you over my desk.
While you're too disciplined to act on it, I'm not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.
This is book 1 in the smoking hot Penthouse Affair series. The story concludes in book 2, Seven Nights of ...
After a priest is lynched, gunfighter Britton Wade is the only one left who can guarantee justice!
In Santa Fe, Jeremiah Cole has been convicted and sentenced to hang for the lynching of a priest. Still, most people believe Cole will never be executed. He is the son of Senator Roman Cole, a man with both the wealth and political power to stop the hanging. The odds are so good that Jeremiah Cole will escape execution at Chama, where he must be taken to be hung, that a reward is offered to anyone who will successfully transport the prisoner.
Britton Wade, a gunfighter and gambler, accepts the challenge. Wade's reputation as a gunfighter might stop most people dead in their tracks, but that's not likely to deter Senator Cole's riders. To further complicate his mission, Britton Wade is in dire health, and doesn't know just how much longer he has to live.
The greatest mystery of all is that Wade doesn't seem the least interested in the money. Why has Wade accepted such a dangerous ...

Private George Smith of the American Peace-Keeping Forces in Lebanon is breathlessly chasing a hand grenadewhich he threw in the line of dutydown the street. It seems he forgot to pull the pin. At that very moment, one Heloise Svejk is crossing the street from east to west, bearing an empty coffin on her shoulder. From this unlikely encounter is born one of the great love stories of the first year of the twenty-first century, not completely unworthy of that of Heloise's namesake nine centuries earlier.
Private Smith is a reasonably sane soldier, as sane at least as any oversized American of mixed Swedish and Austro-Hungarian descent from Alabama who has not been with a beautiful for two years can be. Now Smith knows, inevitably and irrevocably, why fate has posted him to this godforsaken city. He disappears ...

Unable to hold down a job, Rona's only option is to help her father in the family bakery, under the watchful eye of Aunt Lizzie.
But all she really wants to do is to move to the big city and become a model. Edinburgh, Glasgow, London... anywhere more exciting than Kirkham. And more than that, she wants to fall in love.
The only solace she can find is in her childhood best friend Nancy, until one day Callum, the farmer's son, walks into the bakery. A firm friendship quickly forms, and Rona starts to spend much of her free time with him; going to the pictures, attending ceilidhs and taking walks along the sea front.
When her father reluctantly allows Rona to go to a holiday camp with Nancy, Rona meets the handsome Jake, who works in the entertainment business and rubs shoulders with the stars. Romance blossoms and he promises to help her achieve all she's ever dreamt of... he can turn her into a model.

The Harvard Universal Classics, originally known as Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, is a 51-volume anthology of classic works from world literature, compiled and edited by Harvard University president Charles W. Eliot and first published in 1909.
Eliot had stated in speeches that the elements of a liberal education could be obtained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. (Originally he had said a three-foot shelf.) The publisher P. F. Collier and Son saw an opportunity and challenged Eliot to make good on this statement by selecting an appropriate collection of works, and the Harvard Classics was the result.
Eliot worked for one year with William A. Neilson, a professor of English; Eliot determined the works to be included and Neilson selected the specific editions and wrote introductory notes. Each volume had 400-450 pages, and the included texts are "so far as possible, entire works or complete ...

Still Invisible? is more than a narrative on the challenges facing Black males. After all, everyone recognizes there's a problem, and another book simply highlighting those challenges does very little to address the issues at hand, contribute to meaningful and substantive dialogue or offer reasonable solutions on how to help make America better. What makes this book different from anything else you have ever read, however, is that it provides the reader with the tools and resources they need to factually contextualize the issues facing black men today, while not letting anyone off the hook for the problems we need to overcome--be they self-inflicted wounds or perpetrated by the state.

More than three hundred years before the birth of Christ, a traveller from the Greek colony of Marseilles, named Pytheas, made known to the civilized world the existence of a people called Guttones, who lived near the Frische Haff, in the country since known as East Prussia, and traded in the amber that was gathered on the Baltic shores. For four whole centuries these amber merchants of the Baltic are heard of no more. The elder Pliny, a Roman writer who died in the year 79 after Christ, tells us that in his time they were still dwelling in the same neighbourhood; and a generation later, Tacitus, the greatest of Roman historians, twice mentions their name, though he spells it rather differently as Gotones. In his little book on Germany, he says -- in that brief pointed style of his which it is so difficult to translate into English -- "Beyond the Lygians live the Gotones among whom the power of the kings has already become greater than among the other Germans, though it is not yet too ...
