$FREE on 9/3/2019 – Thunder & Roses by Mary Jo Putney

A Welsh Methodist minister's daughter changes her life when she appeals for help to Nicholas Davies, a half-Gypsy earl…

They called him the Demon Earl. They said he could do anything. Son of a rogue and a Gypsy, Nicholas Davies was a notorious rake until a shattering betrayal left him alone and embittered in the Welsh countryside.

Desperation drives quiet schoolteacher Clare Morgan to ask the Demon Earl to help save her village. Unwilling to involve himself in the problems of others, Nicholas sets an impossible price on his aid–only if Clare agrees to live with him for three months, letting the world think the worst, will he intervene.

Furiously Clare accepts his outrageous challenge, and the two are swept into an intoxicating Regency world of danger and desire. As allies, Clare and Nicholas fight to save her community. As adversaries, they explore the hazardous terrain of power and sensuality. And as lovers, they surrender to a passion that threatens the very foundations of their lives.

$FREE on 3/14/2019 – Silk and Shadows by Mary Jo Putney 1

He called himself Peregrine, the wanderer, and he came to London for revenge…

Like the falcon he named himself for, Peregrine is wild and free, an exotic prince who fascinates 1839 London with his wealth, mystery, and dangerous allure. He emerged from his mysterious Asiatic past to exact retribution for an appalling crime. Nothing and no one can stop him—except perhaps Lady Sara St. James, whose fragile beauty conceals a gentle heart, genuine goodness, and a soul of steel.

Unable to resist his seductive charm, Lady Sara turns away from her ordered life to embrace a man she loves, but cannot fully trust. In Sara, Peregrine sees a chance for a life beyond revenge. But can he keep her without revealing his devastating secrets? Or protect her from the enemy he has vowed to destroy?

$0.99 on 12/3/2018 – Bethel Manor by Beatrice Fishback

1842: Bristol, England—a city rife with change as the revolution in industry explodes. In the midst of these tumultuous times James Winthrop Blackwell yearns to discover who he is. Abandoned as an infant at Alpheton House Orphanage he comes of age and desires to find the parents who had left him. Setting eastward from Bristol to discover his identity, James’s travels bring him face to face with the wealthy landowner of Bethel Manor Estate—Master Fredrick Shaw and his feisty daughter Clare.

From west to east—from Bristol the city of his youth, to Ely the place of discovery—James’s quest takes him on a profound spiritual and emotional pilgrimage. Times are initially confusing and challenging for James until he comes to terms with the child he was growing up at the orphanage, and the man he desires to become.

What James thinks he’s looking for when he leaves Alpheton House is nothing compared to what he finds. He seeks retaliation for being forsaken by his parents, but instead uncovers the reality of his past, the truth of God’s love, and perhaps a future at Bethel Manor Estate with Clare Shaw by his side.

$FREE on 4/22/2018 – December Heart by Merry Farmer

At twenty-seven years old, Mariah Travers has become what she most feared—a spinster and a perpetual adolescent in the eyes of her family and the law. But her fortunes change when her father announces that he has promised her hand in marriage to an old friend and colleague in the House of Lords. Lord Peter deVere, Earl of Dunsford, is not at all who Mariah imagined marrying, but she is willing to take a chance on the older man in order to gain the freedom that only married women are allowed.

After a tragic marriage that stretched on for two decades, Peter is hesitant to marry again. But he needs an heir, or else his dastardly nephew, Lord William, will inherit everything he’s worked his entire life to build. But when he meets Mariah, sparks fly that neither of them expected. Their unlikely match stands a chance of giving each of them all the things they never realized they needed.

But trouble abounds when the mine that has provided Peter with his fortune is exhausted and the search for new veins of copper begins. On top of that, Lord William isn’t about to stand by and watch his inheritance disappear. His efforts to drive a wedge between Peter and Mariah cause havoc and heartbreak at Starcross Castle, which will take an act of heroic devotion to overcome as Peter sets out to prove that true love is ageless.
