Sir Chocolate saves Easter – a rhyming verse story by Robbie and Michael Cheadle

The Easter Bunny was in quite a state;

His Easter deliveries were going to be late;

His chocolate making machine wouldn’t start;

The mechanic said he needed a spare part.

He set off to visit Sir Chocolate, his good friend;

And see if some ideas or help he could extend;

No eggs at Easter would make the children sad;

And think that they had done something bad.


Sir Chocolate and the Easter Bunny

Sir Chocolate made the Bunny some sweet tea;

It was quite an unusual problem, he did agree;

No ideas came out of their relaxed friendly talk;

So the friends decided to go for a short walk.

No memory of his past, sentenced to death for a duel gone horrid, Lochlanaire Blackheart is commanded by King William to hunt Siren Rain. She’s the illegitimate daughter of ousted King James II. In capturing his prey, Lochlanaire must retrieve the ruby signet Siren dons. That jewel is the talisman of King James II, which proves Siren’s ancestry. Lochanaire, however, is unaware that at the moment he casts sail aboard his ship, Siren’s been kidnapped by his pirate brother, Zore. Lochlanaire must battle this cutthroat for the princess, spinning Siren into his web of treachery. Afterward, they’re shipwrecked, entwined in a union of inconvenience when Lochlanaire weds Siren under the witchery of gypsies. Lochlanaire soon enlightens Siren of her true father’s identity. She seduces her captor, desperate to conceive Lochlanaire’s child. She believes he cannot surrender her to die at King William’s hangman’s noose if their blood unites. When Lochlanaire’s stalked by a ghoul slaughtering the pirates aboard his ship, he never realizes that this fiend possesses a wicked secret. Siren must unravel all the Blackheart brothers’ secluded evils and save Lochlanaire, for he threads together a travesty by which to sacrifice himself to King William, all while opposing the two seething brothers who seek his demise for the tragedies reaped in Lochlanaire’s shattered past. If Lochlanaire fails to evade the death shroud shadowing his footfalls, Siren will lose the breath-wrenching privateer who is her assassin hunter, the possessor of her lusty soul, and her only love.

In her own words Introducing Raelle Logan

I write historical romance, mostly about hot pirates, fiery damsels and evil villains. As a child, I wrote about Westerns. My Mom worked at library and one day she brought home a bunch of books she thought I might be interested in reading. I read one by Victoria Holt. I was hooked on romance. After getting married, my husband was offered an old laptop for his racing career. I started writing on the notepad, only to discover that the old beast wouldn’t save my work…I bought my first computer. Since then, I’ve been writing about pirates. My goal is to paint a more realistic portrait of their lives while weaving together a scorching romance.

Tales from the Garden – Chapter 4 – Pearly Girl and the Dwarves Stone Band by Sally Cronin

Pearly Girl and the Dwarves is a stone band that plays at all the fairy balls, weddings and birthday celebrations. To the human inhabitants of the villa, they were also playthings for the children who have grown up over the last fifty years and were loved by many.

Unfortunately, like many of the stoned rock bands of the past, the dwarves had not always behaved well. There were a couple of incidences when one or two of the band, who will remain nameless, sniffed a little too much of the pollen of the sneezeweed that grew at the bottom of the garden. They had been banned from playing at any…

Historical Saturday re-blog: PRAISE FOR “The Luck of the Weissensteiners” from Israel


PRAISE FOR “The Luck of the Weissensteiners” from Israel

Twenty Years ago I suddenly needed a place to live and a friendly man from Israel kindly let me stay in a room in his flat in London. Years later we met again at a Film Festival but then we lost contact for good.

You must imagine my joy when a few days ago he wrote me these lines from Jerusalem:

“I finally finished reading ‘The Luck of the Weissensteiners’ and been wanting to thank you so much for this.
Christoph, you have written an extraordinary excellent book. I enjoyed it so much and really got attached to the characters and their fate.

You have such good talent in telling a story in a most convincing way while keeping the reader in suspense throughout the book.
Your ability to describe the complexity of different characters and make…
