Protected by the Warrior

1068 – France

When Clara became a midwife, she vowed to preserve life above all. She’ll keep that vow, even if it means defying a Norman baron by hiding a Saxon slave and her child. Yet when the ruthless lord threatens Clara’s village—and her life—she’s forced to rely on another Norman to keep her safe.

Kenneth D’Entremont is a soldier, one who takes lives instead of healing them. Clara despairs of finding any common ground with him. But when he begins guarding her, she learns to see him in a new light. His care and compassion make her feel safe…even loved. Can she bring herself to put her secrets, and her heart, under the protection of the warrior?

1368 –  England

My life would have been more tranquil in the days after Martinmas had I not seen the crows. Whatever it was that the crows had found lay in the dappled shadow of the bare limbs of the oak, so I was nearly upon the thing before I recognized what the crows were feasting upon. The corpse wore black. Master Hugh is making his way towards Oxford when he discovers the young Benedictine – a fresh body, barefoot – not half a mile from the nearby abbey. The abbey’s novice master confirms the boy’s identity: John, one of three novices. But he had gone missing four days previously, and his corpse is fresh. There has been plague in the area, but this was not the cause of death: the lad has been stabbed in the back. To Hugh’s sinking heart, the abbot has a commission for him …

Abandoned Memories

1866 – Brazil

The fledgling Confederate colony of New Hope is Angeline Moore’s last chance at a normal life. Running from the law, she longs to make a fresh start in this new Southern Utopia. But a series of strange disasters threaten to destroy everything the colonists have worked for, and strange visions threaten to reveal a past Angeline is desperate to hide.

James Callaway failed at both doctoring and preaching, but he hopes that his move to Brazil will give him another chance to become the spiritual leader he so desires. He longs to create a world free from the immorality that plagued every street corner back home and ruined his life. And he believes Angeline is just the sort of refined woman he needs to keep him on the right track.

But something is amiss in New Hope: haunting visions, the discovery of crypts beneath an ancient temple, and an archaic Hebrew book, set the colonists’ fears on edge. When one of their own is murdered, a series of disasters leads them to believe God has brought them to Brazil to defeat an evil that, if unleashed, could wreak havoc on the entire world.

Sons of Isaac by Roberta Kells Dorr

Sons of Isaac

BC – Middle East

You will live the grand story of the descendants of Abraham in this
capstone of the Roberta Kells Dorr biblical fiction series. This work is a new,
unpublished title, of Abraham’s descendants featuring Isaac’s sons, Jacob and Esau,
told with the same critical eye and careful study Dorr is known for. In it, faith
keeps Abraham from accepting the king’s daughter as a wife for Isaac, but fear almost
keeps Rebekah from leaving her home to become Isaac’s spouse. When God tells Rebekah
that she will bear Isaac twin sons and the youngest will serve the older, Jacob
is skeptical. But that revelation will mark the lives of Jacob and Esau and influence
generations to come.

This tale of family love, greed, jealousy, hope, manipulation,
stubbornness, idol worship, famine, and faith in the one God, Elohim, is taken from
the pages of biblical history but sounds like a headline from today’s magazines.
It ends much like it begins, when Jacob blesses two of his sons, Manasseh and Ephraim,
saying that the younger will become greater than the older, a theme that is seen
throughout The Sons of Isaac.

Her Once And Future Fiancé 

Regency England

It was a bold plan—become engaged to one man to avoid marrying another. Three years ago, Susannah Siddons had little choice. But with no communication since, she considers her alliance with Daniel Hale entirely ended—and her heart well and truly bruised. Until new gossip jeopardizes the Siddons sisters’ millinery shop, and Daniel proposes once more.

To court one’s own fiancée…how does a man even begin? Daniel owes it to Susannah—and to the shambles he has made of his responsibilities so far—to start again. In truth, marrying Susannah would be far more than just a duty; it’s his dearest wish. If he can only persuade her to say “yes” a second time.
