Oliver Twist

by Charles Dickens

The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves, shocked readers when it was first published. Dickens’s tale of childhood innocence beset by evil depicts the dark criminal underworld of a London peopled by vivid and memorable characters – the arch-villain Fagin, the artful Dodger, the menacing Bill Sikes and the prostitute Nancy. Combining elements of Gothic Romance, the Newgate Novel and popular melodrama, Dickens created an entirely newkind of fiction, scathing in its indictment of a cruel society, and pervaded by an unforgettable sense of threat and mystery.



Anne’s House of Dreams

by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Anne’s own true love, Gilbert Blythe, is finally a doctor, and in the sunshine of the old orchard, among their dearest friends, they are about to speak their vows. Soon the happy couple will be bound for a new life together and their own dream house, on the misty purple shores of Four Winds Harbor. A new life means fresh problems to solve, fresh surprises. Anne and Gilbert will make new friends and meet their neighbors: Captain Jim, the lighthouse attendant, with his sad stories of the sea; Miss Cornelia Bryant, the lady who speaks from the heart — and speaks her mind; and the tragically beautiful Leslie Moore, into whose dark life Anne shines a brilliant light.



A Tale of Two Cities

by Charles Dickens

The French Revolution comes to vivid life in Charles Dickens’s famous novel about the best of times and the worst of times…

The storming of the Bastilleâ?¦the death carts with their doomed human cargoâ?¦the swift drop of the guillotine bladeâ??this is the French Revolution that Charles Dickens vividly captures in his famous work A Tale of Two Cities. With dramatic eloquence, he brings to life a time of terror and treason, a starving people rising in frenzy and hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent regime. With insight and compassion, Dickens casts his novel of unforgettable scenes with some memorable characters: the sinister Madame Defarge, knitting her patterns of death; the gentle Lucie Manette, unswerving in her devotion to her broken father; Charles Darnay, the lover with a secret past; and dissolute Sydney Carton, whose unlikely heroism gives his life meaning.



Heart of a King: A Story of King David

by Saffrion Webb

A story of King David, although fictional, is inspired by true Biblical events. This tale weaves its way through the highs and lows of his life. No-one knew how special he was, or how great he would become. Chosen to be King by God himself, this man, hated or loved, would lead a nation through crisis, and leave behind a legacy even greater than himself.

My Wild Highlander: A Scottish Historical Romance (Highland Adventure Book 2)

by Vonda Sinclair

Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection.

Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion in an arranged marriage, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist himâ??Angelique. Can he break through her icy façade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?

National Readers’ Choice Award Winner

“My Wild Highlander was a great read.” 5 Stars, Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews

“This author truly is a master of the written word and I look forward to reading her work for many years to come.” Kindle Reader

Excerpt:
After taking another corner too quickly, the coach drew to an abrupt halt and the door opened. Lachlan now held a torch aloft. “Come, both of you. Hold this.” He handed the torch to Rebbinglen.
“Where are we going?” Angelique asked.
“No time for questions now.” He motioned her forward.
Again, he lifted Angelique into his arms and carried her across an alley as if she weighed no more than an infant. Amid the chaos, he seemed an island of strength and protection. She was finding, of a sudden, that she liked this feeling. She had not experienced true safety for a long time. And besides, he smelled appealing, like clean male blended with leather. In the torchlight, their gazes mingled for a moment. He was not the seductive charmer now. No twinkle of humor danced in his eyes, no smirk upon his lips. He’d transformed into a formidable warrior with a firm mouth and dark, indomitable eyesâ??a side of him she’d never fully seen.
They slipped through a narrow doorway, Dirk carrying Camille behind them.
“What is this place?” The scents of tallow and musty books irritated her nose.
The passage opened up and they moved through a large dim church filled with empty pews. Only a couple of candles lit the plain interior. Five of King James’s retainers wearing royal livery waited near the pulpit along with a dour Protestant minister.
“What is happening?” Angelique asked.
“We are to be married, as you ken.” Lachlan set her on her feet at the front of the church.
She pulled him aside. “Have you lost your mind? We cannot marry now. Not like this,” she whispered loudly.
“Aye, ’tis necessary to marry in secret. Someone wishes to kill us. They are wanting your estate through any means, fair or foul.” His harsh expression told her of the seriousness of the matter. “King James bid us to go ahead and marry. Now. We have the special license.”
“But I must wear my wedding gown and I did not bring it. I will not marry in my shift and a blanket. Barefoot.”
“No time.” Lachlan dragged her before the minister. “Please begin.”

by Kate Shepered

Emma
I was never afraid of much. For years, I’d been travelling the world, from the Orient to the wild reaches of the Americas. It had been a wild life for me and my traveling companion, Lucy, and I’d learned not to be afraid of much. But when my grandmother became ill, I was forced to return back to London to resolve the specifics of her passing and my inheritance. My return to London brings up my past, and the desires that I’ve long since buried. London is a big city, but is it big enough for me to continue running from my past?

Henry
For years, my life has been about pleasure. My pleasure, and the pleasure of whatever woman brings me back to her home to show her something her husband can’t. But it hasn’t always been this way. I can remember a time before I found my calling between London’s shapeliest legs. I can remember, but I do my best not to. And when a living, breathing reminder of the man I used to be returns home, I do my best to avoid her. But fate may have other plans.
