My Stratford Friend: booke.1.

by Dominick Reyntiens

â??I have hanged more men for what they have written than for what they have done.’
This quote from Richard Topcliffe, Queen Elizabeth I’s most savage enforcer, goes straight to the heart of the world that surrounds Tom Wickham – a stable boy who, by the circumstances of his birth, becomes young William Shakespeare’s closest friend.
Warwickshire was one of the last Catholic outposts of Tudor England. History is written by the victors, but this is a story of a torn and bloody country as seen through the tear-stained eyes of the vanquished. The layers of Tom and Will’s turbulent environment are peeled back, revealing passion, love and desire fighting for oxygen on the face of a spiralling mountain of fear and retribution.



The Triumph of Deceit

by Muriel Arnold

Brimming with rich, colourful characters, passion, blackmail and catastrophe, Muriel Arnold’s The Triumph of Deceit takes up the story of Trynah and Robinson Mann after they fled from Lincolnshire to Spain at the turn of the century. Their young and handsome son, Richard, embarks on a passionate but dangerous affair with the ravishing, sensual, Anita – bored wife of their jealous landlord, Carlos Daroca – with devastating consequences. Violent storms and severe floods cruelly change the course of all their lives, eventually forcing Trynah and Richard to return to England. There, Richard encounters both his cousins, Lydia and Billie, bringing further complications into his life. A chance encounter at a horse fair has far-reaching outcomes for everyone, and an all-but-fatal accident brings this gripping story to a surprising and unexpected climax.



Sinful Cravings (Cynfell Brothers Book 4)

by Samantha Holt

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Cynfell brothers are the very embodiment of a sinful existence. But could the right woman change that?

Gluttony

Lord Jasper Cynfellâ??wastrel, blackguard, a rake of the highest regard. He puts every rake in England to shame.

Henrietta Fosterâ??daughter of a vicar and a volunteer at the village orphanage. Few women can claim to be as virginal and upstanding as Miss Foster.

At least not in Jasper’s eyes. The uptight Miss Foster vexes him at every turn. The laced-up woman won’t seem to leave him aloneâ??even in his dreams. Why does this woman seem to be turning up everywhere he looks? And why is there something innately appealing about her?

Hettie knows Jasper dislikes her. And she dislikes him in return. But after the disappearance of her rebellious sister Emma, she needs answers. And for some reason, all paths keep leading to Jasper, as much as she’d like to ignore him.

However, after Hettie is forced to accept Jasper’s assistance to track her sister down, Hettie finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. It can’t be because he’s as handsome as sin or because he makes her feel like a woman for the first time in her life. After all, the stalwart Henrietta Foster would never have her head turned by someone like Jasper.

Would she?
