Editions:Kindle: $ 0.99

1385 A.D. – Knighted on the battlefield for extreme bravery, Edward de Montfort accepts an invitation to serve in King Richard’s guard at the royal court. When the king sends him on a covert mission to Canterbury, Edward hopes success will allow him to win his freedom so he can return home to a quieter life.

Lady Rosalyne Parry loses her parents when she is an infant and is raised by her uncle, an artist of some renown. Due to his failing health, Rosalyne takes over Templeton Parry’s commissions, painting in secret while permitting him to receive the credit since she believes no one would accept a woman as an artist.

Rosalyne meets Edward while he is disguised as a peasant working on Canterbury’s wall, and they fall deeply in love. When Edward reveals his true identity to Rosalyne, he convinces her to come to London—and step out from the shadows in order to become recognized as an artist in her own right.

Join Edward and Rosalyne as they navigate the political waters at court and find a deep, abiding love.

The Earl
Garrick Helmsley, an earl in both England and Scotland, returns from the Crusades to find his Scottish inheritance challenged by his uncle. Forced to secure his claim in Linkirk, he agrees to marry the daughter of a powerful border lord. But no sooner does he agree to the arrangement than he meets Lady Emma Waryn—the impulsive and irresistible sister-in-law of his old friend, the Countess of Kenshire. Before he knows it, he finds himself escorting Lady Emma to Scotland. The more time he spends with her, the more he wishes to end his betrothal, but the situation in Scotland only becomes more heated.

The Lady
Lady Emma loves her elder brothers, but their protectiveness frequently drives her to the brink of madness. The last thing she wants is more of the same in a husband, so she has pledged never to marry a powerful, domineering man. Yet the Earl of Clave is both of those things—and he immediately stirs her passion. Garrick might not be the husband she thought she needed, but she soon realizes he’s the only one she wants.

Garrick’s unwanted betrothal stands between them, but breaking it may well cause a war. Will love find a way to bring the earl and his lady together? The Earl's Entanglement is the fifth book in a historical romance series set in 13th century Northumbria along the Anglo-Scottish border. If you like strong female heroines, alpha male heroes, and sizzling romance, you'll love the fifth installment of the Border Series.

*The Earl's Entanglement can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Overruled by Fate by Leila Snow

Book Cover: Overruled by Fate by Leila Snow
Editions:Kindle: $ 0.99

An epic tale of enduring love, powerful enough to survive time and circumstance. Two souls destined to be halves of a whole but fated to be kept apart. And yet a love such as this is not content to blindly accept the bonds of fate...

Nathaniel can hardly recall a time he hasn't adored Madeline. For Madeline, he truly is her knight in shining armour. Alas, one stolen night is all they are granted before Madeline is given in marriage to the wealthy and titled, Earl of Marbourne, who is fast friends with the king. A whirlwind of intrigue and contrivance follows Madeline as she joins the court and catches the eye of the king, while cruel fate conspires to keep Madeline and Nathaniel apart despite their desperate love.

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice
What we behold is censured by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Whoever loved, that loved not at first sight?
~ Christopher Marlowe

Editions:Kindle: $ 0.99Paperback: $ 16.99

In a historical era where danger hides in plain sight and no one aspires to more than what they were born to, Inga must find the courage to break the oppressive chains she’s been bound with since birth.

As a maid in the infamous Kremlin, life in 16th-century Russia is bleak and treacherous. That is, until Taras arrives. Convinced that his mother’s death when he was a boy was no mere accident, he returned from England to discover what really happened. While there, he gains favor from the Tsar later known as Ivan the Terrible, the most brutal and notorious ruler ever to sit upon the throne of Russia. Ivan allows him to take a servant, and to save Inga from a brutal boyar intent on raping her, Taras requests Inga to stay in his chambers.

Up against the social confines of medieval Russia, the shadowy conspiracies that cloak their history, and the sexual politics of the Russian Imperial court, Inga and Taras must discover their past, plan for their future, and survive the brutality that permeates life within the four walls that tower over them all, or they may end up like so many citizens of ancient Russia: nothing but flesh and bone mortar for the stones of the Kremlin wall.
