Pursued by her enemies, flattered and courted for her lands, a powerful, devious princess is desperate to reach refuge. Haunted by the shadow of the young assassin set upon her, Princess Melanthe knows that an ice cold countenance is her only protection. To succumb to love is the greatest danger of all. She can trust only one man amid the lies, the mysterious Green Knight - a true knight who never wavers once he gives his heart; a man who cannot comprehend deceit.

I read this story in paperback years ago and loved it. I was so glad to find Laura Kinsale in Audio Books. I would highly recommend it. The old English is a bit daunting at first. However once you get on to it it greatly enhances the story and the experience.

For forty years, Colony 3245.12 has been Ofelia’s home. On this planet far away in space and time from the world of her youth, she has lived and loved, weathered the death of her husband, raised her one surviving child, lovingly tended her garden, and grown placidly old. And it is here that she fully expects to finish out her days - until the shifting corporate fortunes of the Sims Bancorp Company dictates that Colony 3245.12 is to be disbanded, its residents shipped off, deep in cryo-sleep, to somewhere new and strange and not of their choosing.

I was very taken with Merlin and Mr. Duke. They were perfectly matched in their way. It was nice to read about a bnrillliant, absent minded lady scientist, probably very rare and discourage at that time...indeed still discouraged now. I enjoyed the book very much. I would recommend it to one and all.

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from 20 years previously - a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

This was one of the best books that I have ever read; right up there with Carl Sagan and Arthur c. Clark's work as well as today's News Headlines as one review stated . But the best thing for me was that it was based in Canada rather thàn the USA or Europe. Lots of Canadian writers do not do that; really enjoyed the reading too. This book is really worth listening too. I highly recommend it.

For dinosaurs, it was a big rock. For humans: Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). When the Earth is hit by the greatest CME in recorded history (several times larger than the Carrington Event of 1859), the combined societies of the planet's most developed nations struggle to adapt to a life thrust back into the Dark Ages. In the United States, the military scrambles to speed the nation's recovery on multiple fronts including putting down riots, establishing relief camps, delivering medical aid, and bringing communication and travel back on line. Just as a real foothold is established in retaking the skies (utilizing existing commercial aircraft supplemented by military resources and ground control systems), a mysterious virus takes hold of the population, spreading globally over the very flight routes that the survivors fought so hard to rebuild.

I truly enjoyed this story. The mix of people was great...representing a broad spectrum of humanity. I really enjoyed the narrator. I particularly enjoyed the "First Nation" voice of Bill. He sounded just like Graham Green, the Canadian First Nation Actor (who is one of my favorite actors). I could just see Graham Green in the part, even though he would be smaller in stature than the fellow in the book. I was sorry to see him die. However, I will carry on with the series because the story is really good too.

I loved the story from start to finish. It was a marvelous tale that developed the characters fully and had such a satisfying ending. It was truly alien but very human as well....If we get to the stars some day I hope it works out as well as this story. I hope to come across similar books again soon.
