513RWexUoEL__SX331_BO1,204,203,200_The Briarleys are one of the oldest families in England — but after centuries of sin and scandal, they are on the verge of extinction. Now, at the most talked-about house party of the summer, the surviving Briarley heiresses will create a new set of scandals while attempting to win back their birthright — if love doesn’t conquer all their schemes.

A devil who won’t be denied…

Too powerful to care for such petty things as morals, the Duke of Thorington lives as he pleases. And it pleases him to be known as a cruel, heartless blackguard — one no sane woman would dare to marry. But when his fortunes unexpectedly crumble, he must find a way to save his family from ruin. To succeed, Thorington needs an heiress. There’s only one problem…

A lady who can’t be contained…

Bold, daring Callista Briarley has survived riots, plagues, and revolutions while building her own privateering enterprise, but the sharks of English society are an entirely new challenge. It will all be worth it if she wins Maidenstone Abbey — a house her ancestors spent centuries killing each other for. To succeed, Callie needs a powerful ally. There’s only one problem…

Two hearts destined to ignite…

During the most infamous house party of the summer, Callie and Thorington have one chance to secure both their futures. But Callie’s need for freedom is directly at odds with Thorington’s brand of control. When her past puts them both in danger, will their unexpected love be enough to conquer all?

Trapped in a little country town for twenty-six years, Iphiginia Bright lost no time in closing down her academy for young ladies to set off on a life of grand adventure. But after touring the classical ruins of Italy and Greece she returned to England to discover that the real excitement was there at home. Her aunt Zoe has fallen victim to a sinister blackmailer and only Iphiginia can hope to stop the culprit before her can do more harm. Her plan is inspired: Imitating history’s most legendary beauties – Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Aphrodite – the former schoolmistress will remake herself from head to toe and descend upon London society as the dazzling mistress of one of the town’s most powerful men, Marcus Valerius Cloud, the infamous Earl of Masters.

He is everything they say he is – arrogant, attractive, devastatingly seductive – and Iphiginia can?t help but be enthralled. But when Marcus agrees to play along with her charade, she doesn’t know that the determined earl has plans of his own: to tease and tempt her, until the beautiful deceiver becomes more than his mistress in name only.

The Sacrifice Stone

by Elizabeth Harris

$0.99 For a Limited Time at Amazon

516qVJUSOiL__SX311_BO1,204,203,200_‘Enigmatic … the author really captures the imagination’ Sunday Independent

The present day: Beth Leighton arrives in the ancient Roman town of Arles with her brother, Joe, to investigate the story of a Christian child martyr, St Theodore.

Legend tells that a young boy was killed by a Roman officer on a moonlit night at the pagan temple of Mithras, a victim of sacrifice.

Arles, AD 175: Walking the same streets is Sergius Cornelius Aurelius, an ex-legionary and the officer accused.

Haunted by his past and by a perilous enemy which skulks in the shadows and will not show its face, he has his own story to tell.

At first Beth dismisses the tale and is irritated by Joe who consistently reminds her that she is only there to help him with his notes.

So why, then, does she feel a tangible, mysterious presence wherever she goes?

Joe doesn’t think she should get too involved and firmly believes that women are nothing more than cooks and secretaries.

Beth, determined to prove him wrong and full of confidence from a recent promotion back home, becomes increasingly involved.

Then she meets Adam, a film researcher, who is driven, inexplicably, to find the truth behind the legend.

As they explore the beautiful Provence countryside together, they are both moved and disturbed by the story of St Theodore.

A mystifying tale of love, honour and religion begins to unravel…

Soon their interest intensifies into obsession and dangerous emotions are unleashed as the ancient world, both magnificent and barbaric, becomes terrifyingly real …

A miscarriage of justice has become legend and a force from the past is desperately trying to communicate the truth.

The Sacrifice Stone is a compelling roman mystery.
