LION OF LANGUEDOC

Accused of witchcraft and hunted by Louis XIV’s fanatical inquisitor, Marietta Riccardi is recused from being burned alive by the intervention of Léon de Villeneuve – the Lion of Languedoc.

And how can Harriet realise her father’s dream and travel where no European woman has ever travelled before?

FORGET-ME-NOT-BRIDE

At the height of the Alaskan gold-rush women were thin on the ground and the Peabody Marriage Bureau did a smart trade despatching mail-order brides to women-starved men. When Lilli Stullen sailed on the S.S.Senator as a Peabody bride she did so to remove her orphaned younger brother and sister from the clutches of their hated uncle. To Lilli, the sacrifice of marrying a man she had never met was small in comparison to ensuring Leo and Lottie’s happiness – or was until she met Lucky Jack Coolidge, a gambler with devilry in his eyes. Lilli was certain that when they arrived in the Klondike, Jack would pay off her husband-to-be and marry her himself, but she had reckoned without Ringan Cameron, the red-haired Scot awaiting her arrival.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=”249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Forget-Me-Not-Bride-Margaret-Pemberton-2012-10-04/dp/B01K90C9DG/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Beneath the light of the moon the Chinese moonflower blooms only one night a year. No European has seen it blossom and Zachary Cartwright, Victorian rebel and plant-hunter, is determined to do so. He stays overnight at the British Residency in Chung King before setting off into China’s unexplored vastness in search of it. Gianetta Hollis, niece of the British Envoy, has never been allowed to leave the safety of Chung King and explore the wild and beautiful countryside beyond it. Now she sees her opportunity. She will become an uninvited member of Zachary Cartwright’s expedition and travel to the remotest corner of China in search of blue moonflowers. Her decision brings adventure and love beyond her wildest imaginings. It is, however, a love ravaged by heartbreak; heartbreak only the legendary moonflower can heal.
