Summary

First she changed England. Then she changed the world.For all fifteen years of her life, Pauline de Pamiers has witnessed an attack on her family, friends, and faith. It’s the early thirteenth century and the Pope and King of France are conducting a Crusade against the Cathars; the only crusade on European soil and against another Christian sect. As a member of this sect in France that sits outside the dominant Roman Church, Pauline is an outsider: young, but independent and bold.Seeking to escape the fate of her countrymen, she chooses the most unlikely path to safety and, ultimately, survival over martyrdom. She forms a bond with one of the crusaders, young knight Simon de Montfort, who sees something special in this outspoken girl who refuses to submit to a society where women are not treated equally to men. Together, they travel to England, where she helps the French knight obtain an English title and stand head and shoulders above other noblemen for his integrity, bravery, and concern for those who have the least.With the Church and men and women of the kingdom under threat, they must overcome the narcissistic king and a challenge against their unique love in order to change the course of their lives, and the history of England.The Girl and the Sword is a sweeping saga that will change minds about the role of women in history, and leave the reader feeling the spiritual power of love.Praise for The Girl and the Sword‘An excellent and intriguing novel that explores the nature of love and faith against the background of power.’Carol McGrath, author of The Silken RosePraise for The First First Gentleman‘A firm believer in feminism and the incredible potential of equality, Weaver wrote a book that effortlessly sits side-by-side with contemporary times.’ Huffington PostPraise for Gospel Prism‘Gospel Prism is a remarkable, charming but disturbing novel with an intriguing premise.’ Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of Humanities, Yale University‘A rollicking good read … sharp, cute, sometimes lyrical and surprisingly funny.’ Jane Graham, Big Issue

    Twelve years ago, our fates were sealed with a kiss.We are all, for better or worse, doomed to love each other until death do us part. My heart belongs to Proserpina and St. Sebastian--even if he no longer wants it. Even if she has left it behind to follow him.Delphine's fled back home, and Becket's holy calling is in peril.And now only Rebecca and I remain at Thornchapel to face the unknown.The door is open. The door that shouldn't exist; the door that people have died to close. I don't feel like the lord of the manor. I don't feel like a king or a wild god. I am a friend and a boyfriend and a brother--and a failure at being all of these things. But the door doesn't care about my guilt. It only cares about the sacrifice I'll make to close it.As the bruising dark of Samhain approaches, so does the fate of our circle, of Thornchapel and the village and the valley beyond it. And I must don the crown, because one thing is still true, even if I must face it alone.Here at Thornchapel, the kings must go to the door.Here at Thornchapel, all kings must die.*Door of Bruises is the fourth and final book in the Thornchapel Quartet*

    Four more toe-curling tales of sexy young women being roughly taken by insatiable, hugely hung monsters.
    
    Volume 2 includes:
    “The Ultimate Sensation” – Pleasure-seeking heiress Jasmine is spending the summer living it up on the tropical island paradise of Vilau, whose jungles are said to be home to the Panlopa, a shockingly well-endowed Sasquatch-like monster-man. Jasmine scoffs at the stories, but when the natives decide to offer her up to the Panlopa to be its new mate, she soon learns how real the monster is…and she finally finds the ultimate pleasure she has long sought!
    “Caught” – Emmaline’s special bond with canines has always served her well in her job as Tucks Mills’ dog catcher. But that bond sends her life spinning in an unexpected new direction when she meets a handsome stranger who captivates her like no other man she’s ever met. What she doesn’t know is that he’s a werewolf on the hunt for just the right woman for him and his two packmates to mate with…and Emmaline is clearly the one! After catching the dog catcher in a trap of their own, the three virile, well-hung werewolves roughly have their way with her, one after another.
    “Intrusion” – Married scientists Monty and Nerissa think they’re about to make history with a new invention that offers glimpses of alternate dimensions. But during the device’s trial run, a hulking monster appears in the lab, and when it lays eyes on Nerissa, its only aim is to have its way with her. After his attempt to stop the alien intruder leaves him pinned beneath a piece of heavy equipment, Monty can only watch, helpless and horrified yet strangely aroused, as the hugely hung brute claims his wife…and in the process gives her pleasure light-years beyond anything she has ever felt with her nerdy husband.
    “Orced Raw” – After finding evidence of orc activity near the border of her forest homeland, Elara the elvish ranger sets out to investigate. When she recklessly gets too close to their lair, the petite warrior is captured and taken to their arena, where she learns that she has been chosen to become the tribe’s latest broodmare and must now face off against every healthy male orc of the tribe in a battle/mating ritual. In the process, it emerges that her hatred of the orcs masks other, more shameful feelings, and as the brawny, well-hung monsters overwhelm her and roughly have their way with her, she finds herself wracked with bliss the likes of which she has never felt before.

    Scorch marks blacken the wireframe dungeon, and the smell of burnt meat hangs in the air. Iarumas’s party stumbles upon a corpse, more charcoal than flesh, and Raraja insists on dragging it out. Murmur—Chant—Pray—Invoke. A large-framed girl named Berkanan gulps the fresh air of her second chance at life. Her confidence is low and her skills as a fledgling mage are inadequate, but despite all that, she has a serious goal—kill the red dragon that burned her party alive. This dragon, an interloper from the lower levels of the dungeon, has become so notorious that even the most seasoned parties refuse to engage. Even so, Garbage and Raraja agree to aid Berkanan, and Iarumas lends his support. The chances of failure are high, but in the dungeon, immolation is not a permanent end...as long as someone is willing to pay. Can Iarumas’s party douse the flames of the dragon, or will they all succumb to a menacing red death?
