Very interesting role reversal novel. Actually listed under SF but really more fantasy.

The world (may or may not be earth - never says and not important)is ruled by women. One of the main reasons is because men (males) are very rare. So a male (a brother of several sisters) gets traded or sold to another family of sisters to be their group husband. Sounds more like a male fantasy, but it's really a femanist novel. The women have all the usual male roles and vice versa. That includes personalities and everything. Wen Spencer usually has strong female cahracters (like Tinker) but this is really a female novel.

Good action, with some "interesting" romantic twists. Even as a guy, I enjoyed it a lot. Somewhat slow to start, but very fast paced as the novel concludes.

Both men and women will enjoy this one.

If you're trying to come up with a process to make some money, this is a great place to start. It doesn't give you a business plan but rather outlines the steps you need to pursue to start the money rolling in. Very interesting and enlightening.

Typical Koontz fare, but with some females thrown in to make things interesting. It's about a guy trapped on tyhe 40th floor of a deserted office building with no way out except to go down the outside of the building with a psychopath on your trail. You know, everyday kinda stuff.
