The
Owl and the Pussycat

by
Dahlia Rose

Genre:
Historical Interracial Romance

They
never knew who she was though she hid in plain sight. Among the
people there was awe of her, and the way she managed to slip in to
steal valuables and leave without a trace. Woman were offended
because she wore tight men’s trousers and apparently the bounty on
her head wasn’t just for money but for lust. There was a bigger
reason, why stealing was necessary, the divide between the rich and
the poor was vast, and she intended to fix it by hook…. or by being
a crook. Now she heard the set ‘”The Owl’ on her trail. No
matter to her because she had the intelligence and skill to outwit
even their most willy investigator. She was Ella Covington, the
burglar called, “The Pussycat.’ She would not be caught.

 

 

There
was never a perfect crime just inept investigators and detectives who
cheated people out of hard-earned money. The Pussycat was just
another robber who would inevitably show their hand when over
confidence came into play. A female burglar intrigued him especially
when he uncovered her true identity. Now it was a cat and mouse game,
to tease himself and to tempt her. Like two dueling swords they
parried and each time it was simply delicious. Alas, there were
bigger players on the board, and he grew impatient for his prize The
growing attraction for the woman whose motivation eluded him had
overflowed. This was a frivolity that could catch her a hangman’s
noose. He would protect her and he wanted to make her his. He was,
Duke Richard Vance and “The Owl’ always caught his prey.

Monday, June 14th, 2021

 

I want to alert you that most of my Medieval Princesses romances are on sale for a short time here:

The list of Anna del C. Dye’s work is below:

Dark Mirror Image

 

 

King Keban’s gaze upon Princess Arianne will be punishable by death. However, her brother, the king, gave him another option—Now he will return home with the princess as his wife. He wonders at the turn of events, but only for a small moment. After staying there for a night filled with hair-curling cries and dreadful noises coming from her brother’s chamber, he could never leave her in that place…not even for his kingdom.

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

Once Upon Two Kingdoms

 

An arrangement made when Elizabeth was just a babe ties her to someone she has never met, never spoken to, never loved. Now old enough to choose, she desires freedom—a way to choose her own path—her own husband. The moment Elizabeth meets Patrick she knows he is her soul mate. But when you are bound to a crown how is any choice your own?

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

Her Prince Charming

 

 

A future worth rescuing, a love worth waiting for, and a dream worth sharing

Danger lurks in the court as Stanislav the high chancellor, seizes an opportunity to take the crown and the princess for himself. Caught between duty and freedom, Princess Alexandra has to choose to be free to find a happy ever after or marry Stanislav as he demands and let him take the crown from her. When Prince Christoffer offers a solution by marrying her…wouldn’t that mean another marriage without love? However, if she accepts his proposal, she will sentence him to death.

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

A Princess in Disguise

 

 

To save her love she must remain hidden…to save her kingdom she must reveal herself

Oleah has learned from books since infancy and swears she has a library instead of a brain. Why a farmer’s daughter needs all this learning escapes her, until fate sets her on a collision course with Anitolia’s plan to obtain absolute power. Anitolia is ruthless, so Oleah fears for Stephan who loves her unconditionally. Stephan has suffered much under Anitolia’s obsession. However, it will be Oleah who breaks his heart if she is forced to marry Anitolia’s son.

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

Kingdom by the Sea

 

 

A secret passageway conceals more than spider webs.

The common belief in two kingdoms is that Serena, the Princess of Delmar, wants slaves. Even her fiancé loses his love for her, in commiseration with the islanders captured in her name. When she discovers his betrayal with a slave girl, it could be the end for Linah and all the slaves held prisoner in Delmar. After all, a powerful yet brokenhearted princess could become a weapon too deadly for her opponents to survive.

Genre:
Historical Romance with a twist of Suspense

 

 

Emily
Riventon shook with terror. Certain he would be the victor, her
stepbrother in his role of guardian had pledged her as collateral for
his wager in a game of chance. With the deciding roll of the dice,
the Earl of Lenbridge won the prize: her.
 

 

What
would the future hold? Love as the mistress of this handsome
gentleman, or duty as his wife?
 

 

Either

I
write historical romance fiction novels set in the 1800s forward with
a twist of suspense. All of my characters and stories that are
portrayed in my books are fictitious. I am a native of Texas, but I
have traveled throughout America and beyond. As a dreamer, I love to
visit new places where I can imagine a heroine meeting a hero in a
special way. I’m an avid reader of (all sorts) and I love to
write.

 

I married my high school
sweat-heart and after having raised three sons and one daughter, our
love for each other remains unshaken. Now we enjoy our eight
grandchildren. We can send them home, but we’re always happy for
their return.

 

Outside of my
family activities, I sing with the Silver Belles at my church and
hate to miss even one practice. The local chapter of RWA is also at
the top of my list of pleasures. It keeps me grounded with craft and
connected with other writers.

 

Most
of all, I enjoy going fishing with my husband. Give me a pole and
leave me alone to bask in the sun, listening to water gurgle along
the riverbanks while allowing my mind to float away to some distant
place. Ah! Perfect.

husband and I moved to eastern Virginia where I have had the pleasure
of working at some amazing living history museums. My love of history
made an impact on this novel. I truly wanted to make it authentic as
possible, with room to allow for the fantasy of course. I have always
considered myself a strong, independent, and hardworking woman who
has overcome many things and I am delighted to share my imagination
with the world!

They may think of their paths crossing as a gift, but in reality it will produce agonizing results

Myth
Agent

 

by
L.A. MacFadden

 

Genre:
Historical Time Travel, Science Fiction

 

 

It’s
1945, soon after VJ Day. Odessa Shatto, an antiques dealer, is
pierced in the side by a prehistoric bone. The next morning she
awakens, horrified to see a hideous green slime creeping over her,
hardening into a cocoon that quickly entombs her in darkness and
leaves her fearing for her life. Each time it happens, she remembers
feeling a sense of being thrown hard, as though from the hand of a
giant. And the last time, she remembers her trajectory crossing with
that of her fiancé, a soldier who has been injured in the Pacific in
World War Two. They may think of their paths crossing as a gift, but
in reality it will produce agonizing results.
 

 

Ruttledge
Rosenbaugh, a professor of science devoted to his students at Hensley
University, has spent years learning from his mentor, whose mantra
was that time travelers are constantly around and unnoticed. But
nothing Ruttledge has ever heard or read on time travel prepares him
for what he witnesses in his secret laboratory in 1910. After
recuperating from the ordeal, he spends years trying to prove the
existence of time travel, while a jealous rogue from his past lies in
wait, hoping to debunk any time travel theory the professor
develops–no matter the cost.

 

Myth
Agent is a time travel tale, woven of the fantastic, and interspersed
with traces of historical fiction.

L.A.
MacFadden was born in Oregon in 1956 to parents who were fond of the
great outdoors and instilled that appreciation in their five
children. Her father was employed by the Boy Scouts of America in
Oregon, Washington, and Montana, so she spent all of her youthful
summers in Boy Scout camps her father directed. But because the
programs of course weren’t for girls, she and her three sisters spent
a good deal of time reading books borrowed from the libraries of
nearby towns. Those wonderful days of reading all those books-whether
in the library, under the shady branches of trees, or in a tiny
cabin, were responsible for her love of books, and no doubt led to
her desire to become an author.

 

In
1975 she married her high school sweetheart, then a member of the
United States Marine Corps. Later, they settled in western Oregon,
near the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, where they enjoy spending
time with their two grown children, grandchildren, and a host of
extended family. L.A. MacFadden can often be found at home, working
on her next book!

Reminiscent of The Snow Child and The Secret of Lost Stones, it’s painfully human, yet full of hope, unconditional love, and magic

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve

 

by
Angela Stevens

 

Genre:
Historical Fantasy

 

 

A
childless couple’s lives are changed forever by the miraculous
discovery of a little girl entombed in ice on the Langjökull
glacier.
 

 

1870:
A bleak Christmas Eve night is made all the more pitiful by the
recent death of a baby. Having buried five stillborn girls in shallow
graves next to the croft, Rebekka becomes captivated by a
storyteller’s tale of the Icelandic hidden people.

 

 

 

Finnur,
will do anything to restore his wife’s happiness, even if it means
encouraging her decline into madness. But when the impossible
fairytale turns into a reality, the couple’s impulsive decision to
foster the child from the ice, is met with fear and superstition, and
threatens the well-being of the whole farmstead.

 

 

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is an enchanting and compelling story
of desperation and need. Reminiscent of The Snow Child and The Secret
of Lost Stones, it’s painfully human, yet full of hope,
unconditional love, and magic.

 

 

 

If
you enjoy the magical realism of Melissa Payne and the charming fairy
tale style of Ruth Hogan then you will fall in love with Angela
Stevens’s lyrical and emotional storytelling.
 

 

**Only
.99 cents until Dec 7th!!**

Angela
Stevens is an Amazon International Bestselling Romance Author. She
also writes Contemporary fantasy and magical realism under her pen
name Sadie Collins

 

Her
5 book debut series, Hockey Punk, is a sports romance series set
around her adopted town near DC and revolves around her favorite
sport of ice hockey. Writing in both contemporary romance and
contemporary fantasy genres, Angela portrays gritty characters with
emotionally charged plots and is not afraid to tackle difficult
social issues in her fiction. If you pick up one of her romances, you
may have to order an extra supply of tissues, but Angela Stevens will
always deliver you a HEA.

 

In
2020 Angela Stevens rebranded her Fantasy collection and put them
under a new pen name–Sadie Collins.

 

Sadie
Collins writes contemporary fantasy. The emphasis is on character and
emotion and she has a fascination with folklore and bending the what
ifs…

 

Her
six book Vargr Clan Series combines Lycan myth and Native American
lore.

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is a new venture into a new genre, and
Angela and Sadie argued as to who should get their name on the front
cover. Ultimately, Angela won out, as she claimed that Sadie did not
exist when she first wrote the book. Sadie is still sulking, and at
some time in the future there may be a mutiny. In all honesty, this
book might need a third pen name, but it came down to the fact that
Angela already has more than she can handle without splitting her
personality further. If only Angela could pull off a stunt like
Finnboga in the story, and cleave herself in two, the ‘team’
could be twice as efficient.

A mysterious English stranger shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew about her world on end

Monday, December 14th, 2020

 

 

 

Sara Harris makes her home with her family of seven, which includes her romance novelesque husband and her five children. 
She holds her BA in history and is currently back in school seeking her BSN.

 

 

 

 

 

An Amish settlement. An English stranger. The Blizzard of 1888. Who can Rebekah trust when the line between the Amish and the English becomes blurred?
 
A sweet and gentle love blossoms between Rebekah Stoll and her childhood friend Joseph Graber, despite attempts by her saucy nemesis, Katie Knepp, to sway the young man’s affections her way. 
 
When Joseph hints at the promise of forever, Rebekah is positive she should say yes to his proposal – until a mysterious English stranger shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew about her world on end. 
 
 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Snippet:

 

Over the remaining two days of their trip, the wagon train of Amish families, moving south from Canada, only saw each other.
 
Elnora whispered to Heloise as they approached their final stop. “Not a single wagon filled with English people has passed.”
 
Heloise, however, was much too charmed with Rebekah to be bothered with watching for English wagons. “Such a good-natured baby!” Her voice was awestruck. “At this age, Joseph did nothing but cry.”
 
Turning her attention back to the baby, Elnora cupped Rebekah’s silken head in her palm and stroked the blonde wisps above her tiny ears. “And she has so much hair!” Elnora’s voice was equally awestruck.
 
Heloise narrowed her wise, blue eyes. “That means she will be healthy.”
 
“We’re home!” Samuel announced. “Wilkommen to Daviess County, Indiana Territory!”
 
Elnora plopped Rebekah into a quilt-lined basket. Her eyes welled as Samuel helped her from the wagon. “Oh Samuel, it looks just like Germany!”
 
He beamed. “So you are happy then?”
 
“I am so happy! Danke! What a beautiful place to raise a family. And there is ample wood for your woodworking -” Shifting, Elnora gestured wide with one arm toward the thick woods that ringed the clearing. Oak trees that seemed to scratch the floor of heaven stood tall and majestic, their leaves waving in the tender breeze. Shorter, wider trees blooming in varying shades of snowy white and blush pinks punctuated the deep greens and browns of the oaks, giving the entire area a magical feel.         Samuel’s large hand came to rest on her shoulder, disrupting her gracious spiel.
 
“Dear Wife, I will go in to Montgomery tomorrow to find an English family to take the child. It will be best for everyone if she is with her own kind.”
 
Elnora sucked in a hard breath and willed the sudden fringe of tears not to spill onto her cheeks. She held Samuel’s gaze. There she saw the same dull ache she felt beneath her ribs.
 
With a calming breath, the threat of tears subsided and Elnora’s face softened. She patted her husband’s hand. “If it is best for Rebekah, then you must do as you will,” she agreed. The tugging on the tender ends of her shattered heart, however, didn’t concur.

to a young Italian man whom she barely knows, then together with her

Myths
and Legends have always inspired me. I especially love the King
Arthur legends. The knights, ladies, valor, chivalry, and trust
between them. I have never been one to trust easily, but with these
legends, I feel like I am a part of their world somehow. As a college
student, I chose to study these myths and legends because I want to
find out if they are real or not.
So
my journey began, by traveling to England. I have heard there is a
professor there who has found the remains of what used to be Arthur’s
castle. What I actually find when I get there is more than just the
remains of a castle, it is the start of a new adventure.
In
a land of myth and magic, what awaits me is more than I could have
ever imagined…

Lady Anne and the Menacing Mystic
Lady Anne Addison Historical Mysteries Book 4
by Victoria Hamilton
Genre: Historical Mystery
Lady Anne is in Bath staying with her mother and grandmother while planning her nuptials and awaiting the arrival of Lord Darkefell. Word reaches her of a profoundly accurate mystic working in town, and while she doesn’t believe in such things, she’s eager to visit for an hour of harmless entertainment.
But the Mystic of Bath seems to know things, and her dark pronouncements have a decidedly harmful affect on Lady Anne’s friends–and may have led a gentle and well-liked local cleric to take his own life. Or… did someone else have a hand in his death? He had secrets and enemies, Lady Anne learns.
Convinced that the woman’s predictions are all part of larger scam, possibly in league with other mysterious individuals who have become prominent on the Bath scene, Lady Anne must navigate the swirling rumors and murky affiliations of Bath society to unmask the charlatan for what she is and discover the real culprit behind a tragic death.
