A Rebel without a Rogue (The Penningtons Book 1)

by Bliss Bennet

“A sparkling debut” â?? Historical Fiction Society Indie Reviews

A woman striving for justice

Fianna Cameron has devoted her life to avenging the death of her father, hanged as a traitor during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. Now, on the eve of her thirtieth birthday, only one last miscreant remains: Major Christopher Pennington, the English army officer who not only oversaw her father’s execution, but falsely maligned his honor. Fianna risks everything to travel to London and confront the man who has haunted her every nightmare. Only after her pistol misfires does she realize her sickening mistake: the Pennington she wounded is far too young to be the man who killed her father.

A man who will protect his family at all costs

Rumors of being shot by a spurned mistress might burnish the reputation of a rake, but for Kit Pennington, determined to add to his family’s honor by winning a seat in Parliament, such sala-cious gossip is nothing but a nightmare. To regain his good name, Kit will have to track down his mysterious attacker and force her to reveal the true motivation behind her unprovoked assault. Accepting the mistress of an acquaintance as an ally in his search is risky enough, but when Kit begins to develop feelings for the icy, ethereal Miss Cameron, more than his political career is in danger. For Kit is beginning to suspect that Fianna Cameron knows far more about the shootingâ??and the reasons behind itâ??than she’s willing to reveal.

As their search begins to unearth long-held secrets, Kit and Fianna find themselves caught be-tween duty to family and their beliefs in what’s right. How can you balance the competing de-mands of loyalty and justiceâ??especially when you add love to the mix?

Allah’s Architect (The Cordoba Mysteries Book 4)

by Mark Dewar

In the Caliphate of Cordoba the ruler, Hakam, is consolidating the position of his only son, Hisham, as heir to the throne.

In celebration of Caliph Hakam’s power and piety his officials are finalising the arrangements for the opening of a magnificent extension to the Great Mosque.

As the self-designated architect of Allah, Hakam has arranged for an ancient and revered copy of the Quran to be installed in the Great Mosque. When the Quran goes missing what ensues is a precursor of the bloodshed that will follow as various factions bid to seize control of the Caliphate.

What starts as a celebration, ends in a bloodbath.

Allah’s Architect offers a fascinating glimpse into history, taking readers to a time and place that may be unfamiliar to many, but one which is populated by a host of vivid and memorable characters, places and events that will thrill lovers of historical fiction and character-driven novels alike.
