Father Pat Connor knows marriages. Having presided over more than two hundred weddings and conducted pre-marriage and marriage counselling for more than forty years, he's something of an expert. And now he is sharing his wealth of experience with women everywhere on the subject of 'Whom Not to Marry'. Father Pat's philosophy is simple: a love affair may lead to marriage, but love itself cannot make a marriage work. That's why it's important to weed out the bad seeds before you fall in love. Sounds easy enough, but in the early stages of romance, when infactuation trumps judgement, it can be difficult to see the flaws in your mate and to think rationally about your future. That's where this book comes in. A heavenly how-not-to, WHOM NOT TO MARRY offers timely and time-honoured advice such as: *Never marry a man who has no friends, for he won't be capable of the intimacy that marriage demands. *Never marry a man who isn't responsible with cash. Most marriages that flounder do so because of money, a case of 'til debt do us part. *Never marry a man who lets you walk all over him. It's good to have a doormat in the house, but not if it's your husband. Life may seem random, but there are many things you can do to make sure your life partner is the right one. It all starts with being honest with yourself. 'Use your good judgement,' Father Pat counsels. Know what you want. Know who is worth marrying. Once you can do that, you'll stand a much better chance of living happily ever after. An indispensable guide for those looking to realise a healthy and committed marriage, WHOM NOT TO MARRY is a timeless and timely book that speaks to your heart, mind, and soul.

The Riviera Set is the story of the group of people who lived, partied, bed-hopped and politicked at the Château de l'Horizon near Cannes, over the course of forty years from the time when Coco Chanel made southern French tans fashionable in the twenties to the death of the playboy Prince Aly Khan in 1960. At the heart of this was the amazing Maxine Elliott, the daughter of a fisherman from Connecticut, who built the beautiful art deco Château and brought together the likes of Noel Coward, the Aga Khan, the Windsors and two very saucy courtesans, Doris Castlerosse and Daisy Fellowes, who set out to be dangerous distractions to Winston Churchill as he worked on his journalism and biographies during his 'wilderness years' in the thirties. After the War the story continued as the Château changed hands and Prince Aly Khan used it to entertain the Hollywood set, as well as launch his seduction of and eventual marriage to Rita Hayworth. Mary Lovell tells her story of high society behaviour with tremendous brio and relish, and this book has all the charm and fascination of her bestselling The Mitford Girls and The Churchills.

Violet Adams wants to attend Illyria College, a widely renowned school for the most brilliant up-and-coming scientific minds, founded by the late Duke Illyria, the greatest scientist of the Victorian Age. The school is run by his son, Ernest, who has held to his father's policy that the small, exclusive college remain male-only. Violet sees her opportunity when her father departs for America. She disguises herself as her twin brother, Ashton, and gains entry. But keeping the secret of her sex won't be easy, not with her friend Jack's constant habit of pulling pranks, and especially not when the duke's young ward, Cecily, starts to develop feelings for Violet's alter ego, "Ashton." Not to mention blackmail, mysterious killer automata, and the way Violet's pulse quickens whenever the young duke, Ernest (who has a secret past of his own), speaks to her. She soon realizes that it's not just keeping her secret until the end of the year faire she has to worry about: it's surviving that long.

And when a vital message encrypted with a notoriously unbreakable code is intercepted, he must decipher it to reveal the king's betrayer and prevent the violent death that failure will surely bring.
