Obsession, kidnap, murder... and he's just getting started! To what lengths will exotic millionaire David Howard go, to get what he wants?


"Writing doesn't get much better than this!"

''Shocking, an eye opener! Cunningham writes stunning accounts of the rich and famous! I was mesmerized with the way these people live and act and read the book in one sitting. All I can say is I can't wait for the follow-up to this eye-opening account of stars and athletes. Bravo Ms. Cunningham - keep writing everything you have ever seen because I find it quite exotic amd crazy.'' 

'Great novel about sex. Dynamic Characters! SCC has crafted an epic in proportion novel here. Her characters are sultry and as real as they can get. I recommend this book very highly.' 

'I listened to The Penance List on audio and loved it! It's sexy, highly amusing and has the ability to draw you in. I enjoyed it so much I have bought four copies for my friends, they just have to read it. When will the next instalment will be available on audio? can hardly wait' 

'My God you shocked my shoes off. Excellent work! '

'Couldn't put it down, a real page turner. Nicely crafted & highly unusual format with all the threads coming together right at the end. It's in a category all of its own and would make a great film. I look forward to the sequels. Well done'.

'Boy, if anyone can write about sex this lady can! It's a complete turn on from start to finish and no writer's ever done that for me before! I love the characters - they involve you straight away and the plot keeps you hooked right to the end. I'm going to read the next two parts of the trilogy as soon as I can get hold of them. You're a very brave lady Ms C, I love what you've done: you've somehow given us all the things we want to read about in one. It makes you shiver, it makes you laugh out loud, it intrigues you, it arouses you'

'Bravo! Cunningham artfully weaves a compelling tapestry of murder, mayhem, and Martinis. Delicious and salacious, this novel offers a new twist on the modern romance and the classic psychological thriller. It is a riveting tale filled with colorful characters, suspenseful sequences, and titillating twists. A fabulous read for those who dare!'

'I have recently listened to The Penance List on audio and loved it!!!! It's sexy, highly amusing and has the ability to really draw you in until you actually feel sorry for David... Which is great. I enjoyed it so much I have bought four copies for my friends; they just have to read it. I was wondering when the next instalment will be available on audio, I have a small child and a business so I just don't have time to sit down with the book but can hardly wait.'
