His Ransom

His Ransom

Richard de Charimaux arrives in England as a prisoner after the battle of Poitiers. He is not able to pay his ransom and his family is unwilling, so he must serve the man to whom the ransom is owed. Homeless, kingless, crippled and speaking little English, Richard must find his place in a hostile household which believes he is the enemy and has no value. He soon decides that he belongs by the side of his captor’s daughter.

Rosamunde has been left in charge of the castle by her father who has yet to return from France. She views the Frenchman as an unnecessary burden, since it will cost more to keep him than he will ever be able to pay off. Then she finds out why her father sent him to her and her view of him changes.
For Richard, Rosamunde is the distant, virtuous woman he has always hoped to meet, but he has nothing to offer her. For Rosamunde, Richard represents the French who killed her fiancé.

Regency Spies:

The Heart that Lies

HeartLies-WEB-flat

In Regency England no one is quite what they appear to be and lies are put on when one dresses each morning. In the summer of 1811 the Earl of Meldon is trying to unmask the murderer of his fellow spy, without success. He is distracted from this task by the arrival of a young woman in his house. The last thing Meldon wants is another distraction from fighting the French, let alone a distraction clever enough to work out what he’s doing. When a French agent proposes marriage to his guest, Meldon has to take action.
The death of her brother leaves Lady Anna alone and homeless. England in 1811 is a dangerous place for a woman on her own, but Anna has to make her way on her wits. Even her active imagination can’t predict how dangerous her life in London will be.
