Description : It all started with just one dance . . . Stella Myles is forced to make ends meet by selling herself as a dance partner in a Piccadilly ballroom. Here she meets the enigmatic Montgomery, who orchestrates a job for her as governess with the wealthy Ainsworth family at Harp's End, Sussex. But at Harp's End nothing is as straightforward as it first seems. Stella encounters a family with more secrets than most, and struggles to fit in above or below stairs - although nothing proves so challenging as restraining her emotions for the mysterious Douglas Ainsworth. When Douglas announces that they are all to voyage aboard a cruise ship bound for Morocco, tensions reach impossible new heights and Stella finds herself left holding an incendiary document that she must get to London at all costs. From the rolling green hills of the Kentish Weald to the colourful alleys and bazaars of Morocco, this is a heart-stopping novel of romance, intrigue and danger - and a passion to risk dying for. Praise for Fiona McIntosh 'Sure to appeal to lovers of period romantic dramas like Downton Abbey.' Woman's Day 'An exquisite story that just burst from the pages and leaps into your heart.'

Description : The Mind of the Master Class tells of America's greatest historical tragedy. It presents the slaveholders as men and women, a great many of whom were intelligent, honorable, and pious. It asks how people who were admirable in so many ways could have presided over a social system that proved itself an enormity and inflicted horrors on their slaves. The South had formidable proslavery intellectuals who participated fully in transatlantic debates and boldly challenged an ascendant capitalist ('free-labor') society. Blending classical and Christian traditions, they forged a moral and political philosophy designed to sustain conservative principles in history, political economy, social theory, and theology, while translating them into political action. Even those who judge their way of life most harshly have much to learn from their probing moral and political reflections on their times - and ours - beginning with the virtues and failings of their own society and culture.

Description : To write is a verb. That's an action word. No more procrastination. Almost everybody thinks they have a book in them or dreams of seeing their name on a front cover, but not everyone knows how to go about it. Sharing all she's learned so far, Fiona McIntosh, one of Australia's most successful commercial authors, shows you how to get started and, even more importantly, how to finish. In this practical and lively handbook McIntosh guides you through the stages of writing a novel, from establishing good working habits all the way through to submitting your draft to a suitable publisher. Chock-full of insider's advice on what makes a bestselling general fiction author, this invaluable resource will equip the newcomer to novel writing with the tools to finish your first draft within a year. If you have a tough hide and a philosophical attitude - as well as a damn strong work ethic - you can make writing fiction your career. 'This rare good book on how to set about writing a popular novel is compulsory reading. Fiona McIntosh is top of the pops.' Bryce Courtenay, at his final Masterclass '[McIntosh's] claims are bold but never overoptimistic.'TheSaturday Age 'McIntosh's examples and the exercises she sets in this interesting insight into gaining a foothold in commercial fiction are an eye-opener. And she is more than qualified to take onthe role of mentor.'GoldCoast Bulletin
