VIII Fighter Command at War 'Long Reach' - Michael O'Leary

This book is a first-rate compilation of the experiences of 24 United States Army Air Force (USAAF) fighter pilots who had extensive combat experience in Europe with the 8th Air Force during the Second World War. This compilation was taken from a document commissioned by VIII Fighter Command in the Spring of 1944 that was to be used as a teaching manual for potential fighter pilots undergoing training in the USA. There are also plenty of interesting photos in the book showing the 24 pilots (many of them top scoring aces), the planes they flew, and the combat units with which they served.

Heartbeat
Until We're More - Cindi Madsen

This is book #2 in the Fighting For Her series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Liam is Chelsea's best friend.  They met when she moved in next door at least a decade ago.  He is attracted to her and is trying desperately to be her friend only.  She needs him and he needs her.

 

Chelsea comes home to San Diego to be part of a project that could make or break her career.  At the same time, she is anxious to see those she has missed.  Including the love of her life and best friend, Liam.

 

This story started off with a steady pace and kept the suspense and excitement pumping.  This author is a go to purchase for me, and if you had read books by Ms Madsen before, you know why.  Lots of humor, heat and heartache, but in the best of ways.  I love how I get an HEA that never disappoints.  Good addition to the series.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

_________________________________

NOTE: I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.

_________________________________

 

This biography is about Alfred the Great's daughter, Aethelflaed; about ther life and achievements, as well as the world that made her.  Aethelflaed was a remarkable women who led armies in battle against the vikings, negotiated treaties, founded shrines and churches, planned towns, and ruled a kingdom in her own right, which involved tax collection and law administration.  She also attempted to pass the rule of Mercia to her daughter Aelfwynn.  This well-written and well researched book covers the cultural and familial world that shaped Aethelflaed's personality and beliefs.  It covers her early life, the years of her marriage, and the world she made after her husband's death.  An interesting chapter deals with Aethelflaed's legacy and legand.  The book also includes a section of notes that provides a guide of places around the Midlands that still bear traces of Aethelflaed's life and work or have memorial tributes to her, which may be of interest to anyone travelling to this part of England.  There are many maps and illustrations, however this book lacks a locality map of where Mercia fits into Greater England and also lacking is a timeline.  While I found this biography interesting and accessible ( narrative was distinctly story-like), there was too much speculation on the part of the author, though this appears to be due to the lack of reliable source material for this time period.  All-in-all, this is an entertaining and informative, if somewhat superficial, biography of Aethelflaed, Queen of Mercia.

Excerpt:
 
"Shayla?"

 

For the longest moment Zack's brain couldn't process the sight in front of him. Seven years, ten months and twenty-seven days. That was how long it had been since he'd seen her. That was how long it had been since he'd lived a life without regret.

 

Fight promoter Zack Grayson is on the prowl for a rising star. As the top recruiter of a prestigious MMA promotion company, he wants to take someone where he was never able to go: the top of the professional league. He didn't expect that someone to be the woman he loved...and left.

 

Top-ranked MMA amateur fighter Shayla "Shilla the Killa" Tyler built walls around her heart when Zack left her seven years ago—and again when her husband turned violent. Now, seeing Zack is nearly enough to send those walls crumbling. But she can't risk the exposure of the limelight, and she definitely can't risk another heartbreak.

 
As Shayla and Zack grow closer, though, business turns personal. And once their passion unleashes, there's no going back...
