Cara’s Twelve

by Chantel Seabrook

Cara’s fate is bound to a system she despises and a goddess she no longer believes in.

When it becomes clear that the Elbian throne’s heir has found disfavor in the eyes of the goddess, Cara is ordained by blood to take her cousin’s place as heir apparent.

One man from each twelve provinces are chosen by the royal council to pledge their lives and swords, as champions and consorts of the future queen. From these men, Cara must choose the future king of Elbia.

But soon, she realizes that not everyone who swore to protect her has noble intentions… and that there are those who would use her as a tool to gain power.

Dark Machination (The Affected Book 1)

by Marion Smircic

What if the Geneva Protocol of 1925, prohibiting the use of Biological or Chemical weapons, never happened? What if, instead, research and deployment of Biological and Chemical weapons flourished? The horrors that could be unleashed upon the unsuspecting world by unscrupulous men and their dark machinations.

Not bound by such restrictions, the Chemical and Biological Special Weapons Division of the United States Army, in 1935, created a toxin so horrific it was deemed “too inhumane to deploy” and was shut down. What made this weapon so terrifying wasn’t the painful death it caused its victims, but from what became of the victims afterwards. What was once slated to be abandoned and destroyed’ was stolen; those who worked on it, kidnapped or killed. Death is not an escape for its victims, it is only the beginning.

1941, Germany is advancing unchallenged throughout Europe, armed with advanced and terrifying weaponry decades beyond its enemies. A successful assassination has crippled the US military; alliances are being forged, pacts made in blood, lines being drawn.

U.S. Army Captain Henry Wilson and British SIS Agent code name Valkyrie are working together to prevent high-ranking traitors within the White House and United States military from helping Germany win the war over Europe for a secret organization set on controlling the world. Facing a ticking time-bomb, Captain Wilson and his allies’ race to create a counter before their suspects unleash the full potential of the deadly and horrifying chemical weapon upon the world. Unable to know for certain who is an ally or an enemy sympathizer, they must take their chances, informing potential allies of the fast approaching crisis or tipping their hand to the potential enemy. Plans have been set into motion that will forever change the survivors of humanity.

The Bastard Prince (Dragonspeaker Chronicles Book 1)

by Patty Jansen

She has a dragon, and she’s not afraid to use it.

Nellie Dreessen is a kitchen maid in the palace of Regent Bernard of Saardam. She has worked for two kings and two regents, has seen two royal families murdered through magic, has seen ghosts and demons, and kept her head down like a good girl.

On her fiftieth birthday, she receives her late father’s diary, which describes a magical item that is so evil, it needs to be kept in the church crypt: a box that contains dragon.

Problem is, someone has stolen the box.

Regent Bernard holds a banquet for his eldest son’s sixteenth birthday. Distinguished guests come from far and wide. Because she knows what the box looks like, Nellie discovers it in a nobleman’s luggage.

Removing the box from a thief’s room is not stealing, right? Not if you intend to return it to the rightful owner: the church.

But someone poisons the nobleman, and everyone in the kitchen is a suspect. Nellie’s friend in the church advises Nellie to flee with the dragon box. The Regent is on a mission to stamp out magic, and Nellie plans to do what she does best: keep her head down and hide.

Problem is, the dragon has other ideas.

The Allan Quatermain Collection

by H. Rider Haggard

The character Allan Quatermain is an English-born professional big game hunter and occasional trader in southern Africa, who supports colonial efforts to ‘spread civilization’ in the ‘dark continent’, though he also favours native Africans having a say in their affairs. An outdoorsman who finds English cities and climate unbearable, he prefers to spend most of his life in Africa, where he grew up under the care of his widower father, a Christian missionary.

In the earliest-written novels, native Africans refer to Quatermain as Macumazahn, meaning “Watcher-by-Night,” a reference to his nocturnal habits and keen instincts. In later-written novels, Macumazahn is said to be a short form of Macumazana, meaning “One who stands out.”

The Allan Quatermain Collection features all of H. Rider Haggards Allan Quatermain novels and short stories.

Lancelot and the King (The Knights of Camelot Book 1)

by Sarah Luddington

A love long-held, the love of a knight for his king, a love which must be denied.

Lancelot is banished from Camelot in disgrace, not only has he lost his honour and country, but too late he realises he has lost his love.

When duty calls him to return, Lancelot doesn’t think twice and once more puts on his armour. If his king needs him and he is called to the sword, he knows where he must be.

His country is threatened, the dark wings of war are gathering and his love… that will just have to wait.

The needs of one man’s heart cry for peace, but Lancelot understands what he must do.

He will stand shoulder to shoulder with the man he loves and if they survive the battlefields, if they can survive the peace, then maybe, just maybe, a knight and his king can put aside their call to arms and listen to the call of their hearts.

The Knights of Camelot series is a reimagining of the Arthurian legends. Each book features two (or more) men in love with one another, steamy encounters, and more. These books are not intended to be read as standalones, so be sure to start at the beginning with Lancelot and the King.

The Lord of the Sea

by M.P. Shiel

In the Calle Las Gabias-one of those by-streets of Lisbon below St. Catherine-there occurred one New Year a little event in the Synagogue there worth a mention in this history of Richard, Lord of the Sea. It was Kol Nidrè, eve of the Day of Atonement, and the little Beth-El, sweltering in a dingy air, was transacting the long-drawn liturgy, when, behind the curtain where the women sat, an old dame who had been gazing upward smote her palms together, and let slip a little scream: “The Day is coming…!”
