Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born on 30 November 1874. He was an heir of a noble family of the Dukes of Marlborough. His ancestor George Spencer, a member of the aristocratic Spencer family, was proud of his consanguinity with John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, so he has decided to choose Spencer-Churchill as his surname when he took the title of Duke of Marlborough in 1817. Winston Churchill's father, Lord Randolph Churchill was a politician and the third son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough. Following the example of his father, Winston preferred to be known as Churchill. His mother was also born in a respected family, being a daughter of Leonard Jerome, a millionaire from the USA. Lady Randolph Churchill, gave birth to her son in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, two months before the expected date. When Winston was a kid, his grandfather had been appointed Viceroy, and Winston's father, Lord Randolph, was hired as his private secretary. At that time the family had lived in Dublin and had used to stay there until Winston turned six. Dublin is also a birthplace of his younger brother John Strange Spencer-Churchill. Those years in Ireland are considered to be very important for the formation of the character of the future Prime minister because frequent parades by the Vice Regal Lodge (now the official residence of the President of Ireland) were the probable reason of his passion towards military matters. 1.

Hudson Taylor knows there’s something missing from his life: a mate. But between his tactical missions with the Special Ops Shifter Force and running his communications company, this veteran can only ignore the roar of his inner lion. Until the day a sassy, iron-willed lioness showed up at the Force’s secret headquarters unannounced. Leona Kirk was living her dream as a Green Beret, but when an IED injured her overseas, her military career was over in an instant. She’s restless and won’t be happy until she lands a job that will give her the same satisfaction she had in the service. As soon as she hears about the SOS Force, she knows what her new dream is.

The only problem? Each immediately recognizes the other as their one true match. And dating within the Force is strictly forbidden. Will honor and duty keep these big cats from realizing what’s written in the stars for them? Fake Mate For The Soldier Lion is a standalone shifter romance.

Cover Name: Dr. Rantzau is a gripping diary-like personal account of espionage during the Second World War and is one of very few historic memoirs written by an ex- Abwehr officer. Detailed is how Colonel Nikolaus Ritter, following a brief World War I career and over ten years as a businessman in America, returned to Germany in spring of 1935 and became Chief of Air Intelligence in the Abwehr. He was assigned to establish a network of agents to gather information on British and US airfields, aircrafts, and state-of-the-art developments in the aerospace industry. Among others, Ritter's cover names were Dr. Rantzau and Dr. Reinhard in Holland, Belgium, and Luxembourg, Dr. Jansen in Hungary, Dr. Renken in Germany, and Mr. Johnson in America. Throughout his service in the Abwehr, Ritter smuggled America's most jealously guarded secret, the Norden bombsight and the Sperry gyroscope, into Germany, and coordinated the planning for the invasion of the British Isles (Operation Sea Lion). Ritter was incarcerated by the British in 1945 and sent to the Bad Nenndorf interrogation centre. Katharine Ritter Wallace, the daughter of Col. Ritter, presents the first English translation of the German World War II memoir. With a combination of collected documents, correspondences, personal notes, communications with peers, and from memory, this captivating account by an espionage agent reveals an insider's glimpse of the German intelligence service and of a handler's expansive and diverse agent network.
