Fragments of Grace: Book One to the Dragonblade Series

by Kathryn Le Veque

1291 A.D. – Keir St. Hever is a powerful garrison commander for Lord Coverdale on the border of the Cumbrian vales. Whilst attending battle, he receives word that his own castle is under attack. Keir returns to Pendragon Castle to discover that his wife and daughter have been murdered, and his young son is missing. So begins Keir’s descent into hell and despair.

Three years later, Keir is still searching for his son as he is called upon to rescue the family of an ally whose castle is under siege. Once Keir fights his way inside, the damsel he is supposed to rescue does not believe he is there to assist her and a great battle ensues. But somewhere during that battle, Keir finds a strange and uncontrollable fascination with the Lady Chloe-Louise de Geld. When she’s not trying to gouge his eyes out, he catches glimpses of a woman of magnificent red hair, porcelain skin, and delicate features. And so, the love story beginsâ?¦.

Chloe is a much sought after beauty, brilliant, sweet and feisty. She awakens within Keir long-dormant emotions, feelings he believed died when his family perished. He doesn’t want to love Chloe but he cannot help himself. His attention should be on finding his missing son but he finds it diverted by a woman he is falling more deeply in love with by the day.

A vindictive and evil neighbor, however, who has wanted Chloe for his own, discovers St. Hever’s interest and uses lies and manipulation to convince Keir that he has Keir’s long-lost son. He proposes a trade – Chloe for the boy. Before Keir can make a decision, Chloe takes matters in to her own hands and the situation goes horribly awry.

Through death, battle, vengeful enemies and ghostly visitors, Keir and Chloe’s love remains strong and unbreakable, and in the end Keir must once again wield his sword to save the woman he loves. With flashbacks of the family he was unable to save, will he be too late?

Welcome to Medieval Ireland….

1323 A.D. – Devlin de Bermingham, an Irish knight to the core, is the bastard son of the Earl of Louth and the descendant of Irish kings. He is also a strong proponent that the Irish should rule Irish lands. Rebelling against his English overlord, the Earl of Kildare, he captures one of Kildare’s castles south of Wicklow. Known as Black Sword, a rebel who is both admired and feared, Devlin has set the events in motion for an enormous Irish revolt. Every Norman settlement in Ireland is at risk because of Black Sword’s actions and the stage is set.

The Lady Emllyn Fitzgerald is the sister of the Earl of Kildare. When her brother sends his fleet to quell the uprising on his lands, she stows away on one of the vessels in order to follow the object of her affection, a strong young English knight sworn to her brother, into battle. It is her intention to prove to the man she is worthy and brave enough to be his wife, but she truly has no grasp of the seriousness of her folly. As the English fleet makes landfall along the Wicklow coast, disaster strikes – Black Sword and his army of Irish rebels are waiting for them. In a devastating night of blood and mayhem, the English armada is destroyed and Lady Emllyn is taken a prize.

Join Devlin and Emllyn as they embark upon a journey of a lifetime where both will face death, defeat, and disaster, but most terrifying of all, face their growing feelings for one another in a world that would see them torn apart. How is it possible for two people from two completely different worlds to find a love so deep that it will see each of them make sacrifices for the other? Will they be able to remain together or will politics and war keep them apart?

Join the unforgettable adventure of a lifetime and experience what lengths Devlin and Emllyn with go to in order to be with each other, lengths that will transcend their loyalty to their own people and jeopardize their very freedom. For a love that was never meant to be, they will risk all.

Author’s Note: The first two chapters of this novel deal with some forced sexual encounters – given the circumstances at the time and at this period in history, this was not considered abuse. It was considered conquest and victory. Understanding and forgiveness is a key element of this novel.

Family Promise (The Delahass Legacy Book 6)

by Jacie Middlemann

Family Promise is the sixth book in The Delahass Legacy series, the continuing saga of one family’s search for answers to questions rooted in events that took place generations ago.

When Barb Delahass finally makes the trip to Espinola she finds out that everything she’s heard about it is true. She loves the old city and is amazed at how it has been able to hold on to its history. It’s something she can appreciate since she’s there in search of something from her family’s past. She’d give anything if she knew exactly what it was. But when she and Gray return home to Nolbeloir House they bring with them what they found, documents that Jeremy Delahass left for them centuries ago and that may very well hold the answers they’ve been looking for.
In the middle of the twenty-first century Jeremy Delahass came from out of nowhere much as history decreed his ancestor did some two hundred years before him. It was his legacy, that of a man counted among those who fought in some of the harshest battles of the Revolutionary War for Independence, that Jeremy waved like a beacon and eventually reached the pinnacle as his ancestor had been unable to.

But his dreams had never been those which would put him in the midst of the public eye. Jeremy had never been driven to right all wrongs, to speak the words of the voiceless, to be the one who pushed until promises made were kept. And he’d never felt the need to sit in the center of power. But he did all those things.

Jeremy Delahass did all that he wouldn’t have otherwise because of those who had dreamed of doing so, for those who did have visions of all that could be, who had been driven to right all the wrongsâ?¦but couldn’t. Their lives had been tragically and violently cut short.

In fulfilling what they were no longer able to, Jeremy Delahass became a hero to scores yet was also reviled by many who resented the changes he’d fought for. And he left behind a lasting heritage for all of those who would follow. And so it endured. The Delahass Legacy.

Now two hundred years laterâ?¦

Family Promise is the sixth in The Delahass Legacy series that also includes Family, Family Unbroken, Family Shadows, Family Always, and Family Trust. The Delahass Legacy series tells the story of how one family learns the lessons of what’s important in life and how despite the centuries and generations that pass it remains the same. Family.

The Delahass Legacy is a series of books classified by Amazon as short reads. The books in this series fall in the two hours and more reading time. If you enjoy sitting down with a novella style book you’ll enjoy The Delahass Legacy series.
