Something Sparked (Sparks in Texas Book 2)

by Mari Carr

Sparks in Texas, Book 2

Jeannette’s life is…nice. Great job in the family restaurant, cute house, sweet cat. All very nice…and boring…and maybe a little lonely. But she’ll suffer that price for the safety she desperately covets. Now, if only something could keep her safe from the temptation that is Luc and Diego. The gorgeous firemen are a danger to her libido, if not her heart.

Lovers Luc and Diego have had a hunger for the pretty cook at Sparks Barbecue since they rolled into town three years ago. But everyone knows Jeannette doesn’t date, so the men’s lust seems destined to go unslaked, no matter how much they want her in their bed. If friendship is all she’s willing to offer, Luc and Diego will greedily take it.

That changes quickly when an arsonist throws Jeannette in harm’s way, forcing her to find security and comfort in Luc and Diego’s arms. But the trio’s simmering heat is barely a flicker before the men learn Jeannette has secrets that run dark and deep…presenting them with a challenge unlike any they’ve yet to face.

This book contains a scene of abuse from 16-year-old Jeannette’s past.



BY EASTERN WINDOWS: A Stand-Alone Novel & (Book 1 of The Macquarie Series): A Biographical Historical Novel

by Gretta Curran Browne

From the award-winning Bestselling Author of “Tread Softly On My Dreams.
***
“Showing tremendous skill as an author and historian, Browne crafts an epic and multilayered love story set against the backdrop of British India.
The novel’s exploration of its moment in history is graceful and uncommon, while the story’s drama is engrossing.
Her female characters are drawn with a particularly organic and seamless touch.” — THE BOOKLIFE PRIZE

***
THE TRUE STORY OF A YOUNG BRITISH OFFICER, IN LOVE, IN INDIA, WHO WENT ON TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEN OF HIS TIME.

Set in the beauty of Scotland, the magic of India, and the hostility of China, peopled with memorable characters of all races, By Eastern Windows is the story of a Lieutenant Lachlan Macquarie, posted to India where he meets Jane Jarvis, a young girl from the Caribbean – beautiful, different and exciting – who becomes the greatest love, and the greatest tragedy, of his life.

It is also the story of the young men who travelled with him, far from home, serving their King in a country they came to love, while coping with the complex differences between East and West.
“Fabulous, exotic, engrossing â?¦ fresh and authentic in every detail â?¦ it has to be the best book I have read about the British in India since M. M. Kaye’s “The Far Pavilions” – Dr Aileen Keegan.

“Another wonderful book by Gretta Curran Browne. She not only captures the times but the emotions of the characters flawlessly.” — Sharon Stark

Not at all what I expected, this delightful book weaves an intricate tale of the young Scots soldier , an intense romance, heartbreak and just a bit of war. In exotic places, in long ago times, I enjoyed every skilfully crafted word. — Doris S. Sanders

“If authors such as this one could bottle their writing formula and sell it they’d make millions. From the opening pages I was hooked.” — Garth R. Mailman.

A complete stand-alone novel – and also the first in “The Macquarie Series”.
