'I was warned by all those who knew me that to take on a project like this was madness.' At the peak of her fast-paced career, presenter and interviewer Selina Scott bought a house in the Tramuntana hills of Mallorca. It was a dilapidated old farmhouse without even mains electricity or water, but she had fallen in love with the beauty and peace of the surroundings, and the promise of an escape from her high-pressured job and unwelcome tabloid attention. Selina begins to settle into Mediterranean life and spends time renovating the house. However, she soon realises that making the old house her home is going to be more difficult than she thought. From the unwelcome wildlife that insists on sharing her house, to dubious building work, locals both friendly and hostile, and a forest fire that threatens the whole valley, Selina's new life is full of unexpected challenges. In this funny, elegantly written account of her Spanish years Selina tells us about the house that captured her heart, the neighbours that became friends, and those that didn't, the hills and wildlife that enchanted her, the building work that nearly broke her and, crucially, the dog that found her, and changed every single one of her best laid plans! An uplifting story of escape, change and friendship. 'A terrific read, beautifully written' Richard Madeley

Melania was the darling of her female staff in the East Wing of the White House --beautiful, brilliant, and yet gentle and gracious. Indeed, she appeared to have little in common with her husband, the real estate mogul and reality TV star whose background involving litigious business matters, romantic forays, and seemingly relentless media exposure had brought him to the most powerful position in the world. How did two such disparate personalities forge a loving relationship that became a centerpiece for the world stage? Best-selling author Bernard Conners has fashioned a gripping imaginative narrative that tells the story of a First Lady and her talented female staff--who when threatened with banishment and possible prison by hostile political forces devise a high-risk coup d'état that will enable the president and White House staff to contend with a challenging presidential election. But the simmering battle for ultimate authority between women in the East Wing and the president begins to roil emotions. Will the president accede to the burgeoning power of female admirals and generals who now dominate his cabinet? It is an uneasy alliance--a high-stakes game--and what does it all have to do with a beautiful cunning Russian scientist and a thermonuclear Doomsday bomb with the code name Hector? A comic meditation on romance and government intrigue, High Heels: Shadows in the White House spins a compelling tale of Trump's women, fake news, love, and female empowerment in the White House.
