Jalendu

by Mark Andrew

Set in the turbulent twilight of the reign of the Mughal Emperor of India, Jalaluddin Akbar, Jalendu tells the story of the socially awkward, but politically important young Prince Adinath and Jali, a handsome, spiritually inclined farm boy who becomes his bodyguard. Their unlikely friendship and love changes the fate of the empire.

The small kingdom of Vindhyagarh sits in the Vindhya foothills between Prince Salim, the rebellious son of the emperor and self-declared Sultan of Ilahabad (present day Allahabad) and his powerful Bundela Rajput ally, Maharaja Vir Singh Deo of Orchha. But Salim in truth is no rebel. He is loyal to the power behind the throne, the women of the imperial household.

The court nobility, led by the emperor’s vizier Abul Fazl, see their power evaporating as the emperor seems powerless to oppose the wishes of the empresses or to act against his disobedient eldest son. They fear that when Salim become emperor, they will be reduced to mere servants. Abul Fazl vows that Salim will never sit on the imperial throne.

Rana Jayaram of Vindhyagarh wants peace, but his efforts to ensure it draw his kingdom into a very dangerous political game. His youngest son has rarely left the palace because of illness and spends his time reading ancient Sanskrit texts, drawing and composing poetry. His only friends are his brother’s widow and his old tutor. Jayaram sees a chance to extract his kingdom from danger by an alliance with the influential Kachwahas. An alliance by the marriage of Prince Adinath to a Kachwaha princess would not only tie Vindhyagarh to a Rajput house more loyal to the empire but into the imperial family itself.

But there is one other person Adinath calls a friend, even though they have barely met. Jali is a mysteriously beautiful young recruit to the reserve of the Vindhyagarh Guard. When Adinath is invited to attend the imperial court at the great red fort in Agra, an invitation that cannot be declined, it is Jali he asks to accompany him as his bodyguard.

But there is great danger in Agra for Adinath. Jayaram has negotiated a secret treaty between Prince Salim and his father’s greatest enemy, Maharana Amar of Mewar. Adinath held hostage in Agra would force his father to reveal the existence of the treaty, a treaty that would be seen as treason by the emperor and plunge the empire into civil war.

City Of Rah (Saga Of The Rah Book 3)

by Susan Shepherd

The third book of the Saga Of The Rah series finds beautiful boy-god, Rah, in Babylon, amongst the enemies of his master, Rush The Assassin. Rah, approaching the city on horseback, is taken into the Palace by Princess Ephtheta herself when her caravan discovers him just outside the gates, having fled his master once again. Delighted by his cat-like beauty, Princess Ephtheta adopts Rah, a new addition to her collection of exotic pets, and keeps him a secret from her father until a message from the Assassin himself demands his return. “Your darkest nightmare has yet to be dreamt. For I will take a bone from your body for each day you keep the boy from him, beginning with today. Then I will take what you love first and second: first, your daughter Ephtheta, and second, Babylon. All of the armies of Syria will not protect you. Return him, or face hell itself.”



The Ordeal Of Elspeth (Of Love and Arrangement Book 2)

by Alice Lockley

Elspeth Brinkhurst is the daughter of one of the most notorious criminals in 1840’s England, but he is a man with money and power, and she is as all people in his life are, a means to an end. She is beleaguered by her father, his mistress, and her father’s friends, whose intent for Elspeth is less than welcome.

When Elspeth makes a grave error in a bid to take charge her own life, the consequences ripple out, and Elspeth finds herself in an untenable situation. Her actions lead her to be outcast and just another of her father’s pawns.

When Elspeth meets the giant Henry Whiston, her life changes, and he appears to be the way out of her father’s machinations and that of his friend, the terrifying Captain Grifton. Making that choice, and defying her father incurs not only his wrath, but also of her father’s mistress, a woman as cruel as her father.

Her struggle leads to love, disappointment, a terrible series of events, and the path to hope and family.

This the second in a series of standalone novels charting the lives of strong and determined men and women, and though each book is its own story, they are best read in order.
