Heroes of Medieval Wales: Daughter of Time/Cold My Heart/The Good Knight/The Last Pendragon: Four First-in-Series Romances

Time travel, mystery, magic ... journey to a world of knights and castles with these four first-in-series historical romances!

Daughter of Time (novel): Time travel to medieval Wales ... A medieval man with an uncertain destiny and a modern woman with a troubled past. Only by working together can Llywelyn and Meg navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales-and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Cold My Heart (novella): Myrddin and Nell, two of the king's companions, have a secret that neither has ever been able to face: each has seen that on a cold and snowy day in December, Saxon soldiers sent by Modred will ambush and kill King Arthur. Together, they must decide what they are willing to do, and to sacrifice, to avert that fate.

The Good Knight (novel): Intrigue and rivalry among princes casts a shadow on the court of the king of north Wales. When a royal groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks Gareth and Gwen, his two best detectives, with bringing the killer to justice.

The Last Pendragon (novella): Rhiann knows that demons walk the night. She has been taught to fear them. But from the moment Cade is dragged before her father's throne, beaten and having lost all of his men to her father's treachery, he stirs something inside her that she has never felt before. When Cade is revealed to be not only Arthur's heir but touched by the sidhe, Rhiann must choose between the life she left behind and the one before her--and how much she is willing to risk to follow her heart.

The Mesmerist: Hope Chest Time Travel Romance Series, Book 1 (Hope Chest Series)

A woman fleeing her unfaithful fiance. A cuddly ghost seeking the manner of his death. A magical matchmaker determined to bring the two together, even across time.

When dog trainer Gina Charles flees her unfaithful fiance, she ends up at a hotel room with another occupant--a ghost with compelling dark eyes who cuddles up to her in the middle of the night.

Ghostly mesmerist Drake Manton doesn't remember how he died, and insists Gina help him learn the manner of his death so he can move on or he'll haunt her forever.

Gina's investigation leads her to the burned-out Chesterfield hotel, where she finds a magical hope chest in the ruins. When she touches it, she and her faithful terrier hurtle back in time to 1883 where she comes face-to-face with the very alive, very sexy mesmerist.

Now all Gina has to do is prevent Drake's fiery death so she can return to her own time. Or can she give up her life in the future for a lifetime of love in Drake's arms?

The Mesmerist is the first in a five-book multi-author Victorian romance time travel series. If you enjoy sweetly sexy time travel with a spunky heroine pitted against the fashions and restrictions of the 1880s that contains more than a touch of humor, you'll love this book.

The Hope Chest Series: An antique hope chest containing five unique objects . . . five people inexorably drawn to the items inside . . . each sent to the past where they must accomplish a task and find their own path to true love with the help of a magical matchmaker determined to bring soul mates together, even across time.

"This series promises to be a lot of fun. The mystery surrounding Miss Sparrow and her hope chest are yet to be discovered.

The Beginning, Part 1: The McKinnon Legends, Book 1

"Nic, my friend, you think Fate's a witch? Just wait until you meet her sister Destiny." (Connor Holden, Earl of Featherstone)

Every story has a beginning often driven by fate.

It is the year of our Lord 1493, and King Henry VII has been seated on the English throne for eight years. He did not get there by chance alone. Nor has he stayed there with ease. He has his favorites, generously rewarding those who serve him well. Sir Nic McKinnon is at the top of that list.

For his faithful devotion, Nic finds himself graciously rewarded. That reward is the hand in marriage to the seventh Duchess of Seabridge. The only issue is Nic isn't interested in the bounty, and taking a wife is certainly not in his plans. However, he understands that seeming ungrateful to Henry for his gift or disobeying a king's command is never wise. Nic reluctantly agrees to marry. Living with his duchess was not one of Henry's stipulations.

To that end, Nic's plan is to marry the young duchess, and then leave her to her own designs. That is until he finds that she is in danger, so much so that she is fleeing for her very life. Nic is sworn to protect the king's subjects who cannot protect themselves, but more than that, no one threatens what belongs to a McKinnon. She belongs to him by the king's decree. The question now is not whether he marry her and leave her behind - the question is much clearer: Can he keep her alive?
