A unique novel, since this is a romance - based on computer dating - written from the point of view of the man as well as the heroine!  Richard Vance is a nuclear physicist from South Africa. He visits Britain to deliver nuclear secrets regarding weapon-grade uranium to the West -- and one of his computer dates seems to know more about highly-enriched uranium than meets the eye!  Richard has three computer dates, and he finds himself suitably mis-matched!  (Much of the novel is set near Scammadale Loch, a tranquil Scottish glen near Oban.  Want to visit the Glen?

The following review of Spirit of Ecstasy appeared in The Eildon Tree, Special Fiction Issue 6, p.6:

This romantic thriller was co-authored by husband and wife team, Charles and Carolyn Muller, hence the name Carolyn Charles. It centres on the computer dating intrigues (and mis-matches) of a South African nuclear physicist, Richard Vance.

The reader is drawn into the story immediately, and we learn the perks of computer dating from a female (Jackie) and male (Richard) point-of-view. At turns whimsical, humorous and romantic, we are propelled from London to Wales to Scotland , with time spent in Yorkshire in a fast-paced novel, switching from Richard to Jackie’s misfortunes in computer matchmaking. Only near the end do we learn that something more sinister has been lurking beneath the surface of this dating game.

The protagonist, Richard, is an appealing, if somewhat bumptious, lovelorn academic, who spills a lot of wine and snogs a lot, unaware of the dangers closing in on him. One or two incidents challenge the reader’s credulity and the Austrian and Scots accents are a bit dodgy, but on the whole, this team have produced a commendable and solid novel in the romantic/thriller genre.

The protagonist couldn't help falling in love, against his will. Those who knew him better tried to stop him, to draw him back, to tell him it was wrong, against the Law of God.

Have Anything You Really Really Want! A Christian Testimony 
by C H Muller.  
US Price: $11.95    U K Price:  £10.27

This little book is a personal testimony, bearing witness to how the author's faith opened doors and released the power of God -- a God who loves and cares, who guides us to fulfil the special plan he has for each one of us.

On one level, it explores the essential principles for personal success and achievement. It’s a record of how these principles worked for the author. How did he achieve his three university doctorates? How did he apply himself, what research methods did he use? On a superficial, materialistic plane, how did he acquire his Rolls Royce, or his hotel in Scotland?
