Touched by a God or Something [NOOK Book]

Overview

When Bill, a broke, would-be bestselling novelist, attends a friend's party, the last thing he expects is to meet the condescending but goddess-like Cassandra. He is even more surprised when she whisks him back to her place.

Thus begins the 'perfect' relationship, as Bill would say: no commitment, no consideration, no caring. Just sex - and none of that soppy love to get in the way, either. Or so he thinks. Once installed in Cassandra's flashy...

Overview

When Bill, a broke, would-be bestselling novelist, attends a friend's party, the last thing he expects is to meet the condescending but goddess-like Cassandra. He is even more surprised when she whisks him back to her place.

Thus begins the 'perfect' relationship, as Bill would say: no commitment, no consideration, no caring. Just sex - and none of that soppy love to get in the way, either. Or so he thinks. Once installed in Cassandra's flashy Hampstead house, all he has to do is write. And keep the house clean. And do the shopping. But it's a small price to pay. After all, Cassandra provides for his every need and fulfils his wildest sexual fantasies.

But before long, Bill finds that more and more of his time is taken up with daily chores, and it is beginning to affect his state of mind. As he feels his dignity and sense of self being eroded, he begins to wonder what is happening to him. And when he discovers the sinister truth about the real nature of his 'relationship' with the overpowering Cassandra, things take a very different turn...

Meet the Author

Peter Michael Rosenberg is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter and self-confessed nomad. He has travelled in over seventy countries around the world but has yet to find one to call home.

His latest novel, a thriller called "Implicated" is his first foray into indie publishing and he has enjoyed the experience so much that he’s now republishing his "back-list" as indie ebooks, including the Betty Trask Award-winning "Kissing Through a Pane of Glass", the suspenseful "Touched by a God or Something", the chilling "Because It Makes My Heart Beat Faster" and the paranormal romance "Daniels Dream".

He has also written the surreal "The Uncertainty Principle" (writing as Tyler Montreux) - Peter refers to it as his Tom Robbins/Kurt Vonnegut homage. A short story "The Fig Tree" is also available on Amazon and he has a new series of detective stories planned.
