Irresistibly funny and utterly addictive, this is a delicious tale of money, power, sex and having it all. No one forgets Miss Cathy Fox in a hurry. From her scorpion tattoo to her other more worldly charms she's a woman on a mission to get what she wants. Leaving behind her humble beginnings folding knickers as a matron's assistant, Cathy embarks on a journey that will take her from a Portsmouth backstreet to the boardrooms of the global empires. With a cast of footballers, media moguls, lords and dukes, Coleridge charts the rise of a woman who will not be denied, right to the very pinnacle of society - a Royal Wedding.

The fifth book in M.C. Beaton's charming A House for the Season series. Appearances can be very deceptive... At first, Emily Goodenough and her uncle are exactly what the servants at No. 67 Clarges Street are hoping for: respectable tenants to usher in an uneventful Season. But all is not what it seems and it's not long before Rainbird the butler uncovers their secret: Mr Goodenough is an ex-butler and his 'daughter' a runaway chambermaid! Rainbird's resolve is tested, however, when he learns of villainous Mr Percival Pardon's plot to unmask the pair and force his attentions on Emily. So the staff join forces with their former fellow servants in a scheme to make the Goodenoughs Society's darlings, foil Mr Pardon's plot, and snare the man of her dreams for Emily in the bargain!

Not convinced by the coroner's verdict, Emily must employ all of her investigative skills to discover the truth and avert another tragedy.

Grimmelshausen's enduring fame as Germany’s greatest satirical novelist has rested mainly on The Adventerous Simplicissimus, the first of four novels comprising the Simplician cycle. Less well known, though of equal interest for their penetrating and satiric insight into seventeenth-century beliefs and superstitions, are the two Simplician tales now made available to English readers in this edition: Courage, The Adventuress, the fictional biography of a camp follower in the Thirty Years War, a grimly humorous tale told in the earthy language of the people; and The False Messiah, comprising nine chapters from Grimmelshausen’s last work, The Enchanted Bird’s Nest, Part II. The book includes an Introduction with an account of Grimmelshausen’s life, works, and philosophy, as well as critical comment on the two works. Originally published in 1964. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The girl paused and steadied herself for a moment against a field gate. Her breath came fastin little sobbing pants. Her dainty shoes were soiled with dust and there was a great tear inher skirt. Very slowly, very fearfully, she turned her head. Her cheeks were the colour ofchalk, her eyes were filled with terror. If a cart were coming, or those labourers in the fieldhad heard, escape was impossible.The terror faded from her eyes. A faint gleam of returning colour gave her at once a morenatural appearance. So far as the eye could reach, the white level road, with its fringe ofelm-trees, was empty. Away off in the fields the blue-smocked peasants bent still at theirtoil. They had heard nothing, seen nothing. A few more minutes, and she was safe.Yet before she turned once more to resume her flight she schooled herself with an effort tolook where it had happened. A dark mass of wreckage, over which hung a slight mist ofvapour, lay half in the ditch, half across the hedge, close under a tree from the trunk ofwhich the bark had been torn and stripped. A few yards further off something grey, inert, was lying, a huddled-up heap of humanity twisted into a strange unnatural shape. Again thechalky pallor spread even to her lips, her eyes became lit with the old terror. She withdrewher head with a little moan, and resumed her flight. Away up on the hillside was the littlecountry railway station. She fixed her eyes upon it and ran, keeping always as far aspossible in the shadow of the hedge, gazing fearfully every now and then down along thevalley for the white smoke of the train.She reached the station, and mingling with a crowd of excursionists who had come fromthe river on the other side, took her place in the train unnoticed. She leaned back in herseat and closed her eyes. Until the last moment she was afraid
