He refused to think of anything else, even to the point of trading three oxen for one small barrel of fish, because he was mulling over game strategy and not concentrating on the trading. He was able to challenge the trader and make the deal more equitable, but it was still an embarrassment to Karn’s father, the hauld. Read More »

Rocked by Barbara Elsborg

The title of this book is Rocked by Barbara Elsborg. At first, I was curious as to the meaning and that the title might not fit, but I kept on reading. And as I finished the book, I realized that this was the perfect title because that’s what I was. It is also a play on words. This is a very – and I do mean very – erotic story. Barbara is ingenious in how she has written this. I was confused at with the structure of the story, but as I continued to read, it opened up like a flower in the sun. The main characters are introduced separately so you get to know them at different times. When each are faced with what seems to be impossible they have to overcome their fears and figure out the best way to solve the problem that affects them all. Read More »
