Another book I’m NOT recommending…

For those still interested in hearing about what I’ve recently read and my thoughts on it, here’s the latest instalment…and this time I am definitely NOT recommending it.

Note, all my reviews tend to contain at least minor spoilers, though I do try to keep them to a minimum…..

Book details: The Sheikh’s Forbidden Bride by Cara Albany (no link, but if you feel the need to torture yourself it’s available on Amazon) This one isn’t exactly clean, though there’s no overt smut.
My Rating: 1 star. (because that’s the lowest rating Amazon will allow)
Summary: A Second Chance For The Sheikh To Claim His Lost Love. Feisty and determined, Chloe Stirling had once loved and lost Sheikh Zayed Al Kharif. But that is all in the past now. Or, is it? Chloe’s work brings her to Zayed’s kingdom where she must find a way to resist a former lover who will not be denied.
Zayed is an untamed Sheikh determined not to waste this chance to possess the only woman he has ever loved. Forced to abandon her once before, he’s not about to make the same mistake again. He will use everything he can to win her back, even if Chloe is determined to deny him a second chance. Can Zayed seize his second chance at love, and overcome the barriers to finding a happy ever after with a woman who is now so close to becoming the love of his life? Continue reading

Yahoo mail strike again….

It seems an assortment of large organisations are vying for position as to who can piss me off the most this week. Yesterday it was lj, today it’s Yahoo (oh and the NHS Dental service, but I’ll cover that in a separate post at some point) who are pushing up my blood pressure… Continue reading

And that’s tax payer’s money, right?

I’ve worked for several very large companies over the years, in retail and utilities, so I should be used to this level if corporate idiocy by now, but sometimes they can still amaze me, in all the wrong ways.

Before I start I should probably say that I don’t even pretend to understand all the finer points of banking in general, or the legislation surrounding it. This is simply a gut reaction from someone with their own financial problems who is amazed at what she sees…. Continue reading

So what IS an anniversary?

As most of you will already be aware, I’ve gradually reduced the amount of posts I do regarding Doctor Who since Steven Moffat took over the helm, mainly because I became more and more disillusioned with the direction it seemed to be taking, to the point where I felt I had nothing positive to say most weeks. (Warning – Moffat makes me rant a bit at times, so if you’re a huge fan of his you might want to walk away now…) Continue reading

Excuse me while I rant…

But I just realised I hadn’t posted this here…….and, you see, germs, and the associated insomnia that tends to go with them makes me grouchy, and then I find out that someone is ripping off the artwork of people I know, and now I’m waaaay more than grouchy, I’m bloody furious…. Continue reading

They’re actually trying to give me a headache, right?

Anyone who uses Twitter, or reads certain sites, will no doubt already be aware of this, but I’m in need of a little rant so here goes…. Continue reading
