The Last of the Mohicans (Bantam Classics)

by James Fenimore Cooper

The quintessential story of the American frontier 

Set during the French and Indian War, The Last of the Mohicans is the second installment in James Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales and one of the greatest action stories ever told.

When the Munro sisters and their traveling party are betrayed by Magua, a Huron guide, the skilled and courageous woodsman Natty Bumppoâ??better known as Hawkeyeâ??and his Mohican comrades Chingachgook and Uncas come to their rescue. The thrilling adventures that ensue, from the siege of a British fort by French forces to the clever infiltration of a native village to the dramatic final showdown atop a rocky cliff, are an entertaining and sincere tribute to a way of life that was already vanishing from the American wilderness.

The Wicked Guardian

by Vanessa Gray

Clare Penryck is playing a dangerous game with Regency England’s most elegant bachelorâ?¦

Under the care of Lady Thorne, Clare meets Sir Benedict Choate, recognising him from her old paintings at homeâ?¦

She is supposed to return to her Grandmother in Dorset, but when she dies, Sir Benedict is to become her guardian, much to Clare’s horror.

She had known this elegant aristocrat for only one London season â?? but that time had sufficed to show her how insufferably arrogant he could be.

Benedict made it clear that he expected Clare to be a very proper young lady, to remain safe on her secluded country estate and to wait for a decent match â?? an idea which Clare struggles with.

Both Benedict and the law said she must obey him. But headstrong Clare has no intention of doing so…

Sir Benedict Choate was clearly unprepared for the lesson in love he was about to be given â?? by a maddeningly wilful young girl who had so much to learn herselfâ?¦

Is Benedict really the wicked guardian Clare believes him to be?

Or could he be her greatest protector?
