Rebel Soul: A Historical Romance Novel (Scottish Rebels Book 2)

by Jenna Stone

Quinn Murray is a broken man.

The failed Scottish Rising against the English Crown has taken everything from him; his clan, his home, and his lover. After being transported to America with his brothers, Quinn must rebuild his shattered life.

Quinn fears that his heart is dead and that he will never fill the hollowness that has taken root deep within his soul.

And then Sarah, a beautiful half-Cherokee woman, comes crashing into Quinn’s life, awakening long forgotten feelings in his battered heart.

Quinn realizes that perhaps it is possible to love again.

As Quinn struggles with the demons of his past, Sarah pieces together his broken heart, finding her own redemption tied inexplicably with Quinn’s.

Sometimes love is the best form of redemption. Love can heal the deepest scars and replace them with something fragile and precious.

True love yields hope.

**Author’s note: A version of this story was released in 2010 as a short novella entitled “Redemption.” Fulfilling the requests of my readers, I have expanded this novella into a full length novel. I hope that you enjoy “Rebel Soul!”

Guardian Angel (The Angel Mountain Saga Book 6)

by Brian John

The Angel Mountain Saga has now accumulated sales of over 70,000.  This is Part 6…â?¦

Get your copy now, and enter the enchanting world of Martha Morgan, a VERY imperfect heroine.

This is a sequel to the first five novels of the Angel Mountain Saga, set at about the same time as the Jane Austen novels. Those who are familiar with the series will find some characters and settings that they know and love; but this story ranges far more widely, leaving West Wales behind and taking in episodes set in the industrial districts of Merthyr Tydfil, and in Paris. 

It is a story of an elderly lady who calls herself Susanna Ravenhill and who  lives far more dangerously than is recommended for someone of her age. She has a dark secret to hide, and she is pursued relentlessly by a group of armed men. One day they will catch up with her…………

This story was not originally marketed as Volume Six of the Angel Mountain Saga, since Martha was supposedly in her grave at the end of Volume Five.  But there is more to life and death than meets the eye, as the writers of that famous TV serial Dallas discovered many moons ago.

“Congratulations to Brian John on managing to draw all my senses into one book!”   “The last time I was obsessed with a compelling need to read a book from cover to cover was 20 years ago when I read the Poldark novels by Winston Graham.”   “Another colourful adventure, full of Dickensian ruffians, dark secrets and evil conspirators.”  “Another great, unputdownable read by Brian John. Old and new characters come to life in his thought provoking and clever sequel to the brilliant Angel Mountain stories.”

The author enjoyed writing this one — he calls it a “fairy story” and in the course of the narrative, for a nice change, nobody actually gets killed…….  But serious issues are covered too â?? the social deprivation of working class areas during the period of rampant Victorian industrialisation, the need for the protection of special places, the meaning of loyalty, and the psychological impact associated with a loss of identity.

A strange memoir called “The Ghost of Inglestone” is found among the rejected Gothic novels of the defunct London publishers Pickersniff and Jebson.  The author is unknown in the records of Victorian literature.  Who was she, and what was she doing in London in 1857?  Read the tale and find outâ?¦.

Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ (Xist Classics)

by Lew Wallace

Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is a novel by Lew Wallace and was considered the most influential Christian book of the 19th century. Ben Hur tells the adventures of Judah Ben-Hur, a fictional Jewish prince from Jerusalem, who is enslaved by the Romans at the beginning of the 1st century and becomes a charioteer and a Christian. Running in parallel with Judah’s narrative is the unfolding story of Jesus, who comes from the same region and is a similar age. The novel reflects themes of betrayal, conviction, and redemption, with a revenge plot that leads to a story of love and compassion.
