Love's Shadow
Ada Leverson
A comedy of romance and manners set in Edwardian London, sharply observed by the woman Oscar Wilde considered his "Sphinx."

The Girl in his House
Harold MacGrath
A long short story. James Armitage returns to New York after an absence of six years, to find his house sold to a stranger by his defaulting agent who has absconded with half his fortune. Of course the occupant of the house is a beautiful young girl, and of course there is a mystery and a romance which ends happily. Good for a hot day.

The Bandit of Hell's Bend
Edgar Rice Burroughs
No better yarn of the old cattle days can be found in current fiction. Tense dramatic situations; unforgettable characters presented with incomparable skill; the humor and repartee of the "boys," and over all the glamor and romance of the old west.

Ask Mrs. Wizard:
Please send me a personal email ( if you have any questions. I answer all my emails and am more than happy to help any time I can. Your questions mean a lot to me, and may even inspire an article that will help others and make this a more valuable resource to anyone who reads it. note: You can actually download these books from your Kindle, directly from the web site. It is certainly worth clicking these book links and experimenting with your 5-way toggle. It may be a little clunky, but actually works fine. You will make good use of that free Amazon whispernet connection. The .mobi file format is my personal favorite for books from on my Kindle, but you can also use .prc, .txt, and .azw files with no trouble. Experiment with them all and decide for yourself which formats you like the best. books are always FREE!
