A grieving Duke, a disregarded daughter, an unsuitable love, a trap set to compromise, an unexpected happy ending.
Hunter Barrington, Duke of Melton, returned from war a changed man. Grieving his lost love, now the holder of a title that he had never thought to inherit, and expected to marry at the earliest opportunity, what he needed most was someone who could see him, simply as himself.
Lady Nerissa Loughbridge, the second daughter, always outshone by her beautiful sister, perpetually reproved for her hoydenish ways. What she needed most was someone who could see her, just for herself, who might allow that her dreams had value, simply because she wished them.
Then one day, in the winter woods, they met….
But a few magical weeks of delightful friendship were swept away by the hectic London Season, as Lady Nerissa’s transformation from ordinary, to the Incomparable of the Season, brought a flock of suitors, and the Duke’s new title made him the catch of the year.
Can they find their way back to each other, through all their hearts’ confusion? Can Lady Nerissa thaw a heart frozen in grief, and claim it for her own?
As Heaven divides and Hell arises, angelic hearts will be broken . . .
Devoted to one another, Adryel and Ramael must each choose a side in the brewing war over the creation of humanity: God desires to breathe life into his new creation, but Lucifer is intent upon sabotage.
Ramael faithfully serves as second in command of the Army of Heaven; his loyalty never waivers. Adryel—swayed by Lucifer’s arguments—casts her lot in with the rebelling archangel. Leaving Ramael and all else she holds dear, Adryel wages war with Lucifer and refuses to renounce him. Finding herself exiled to Hell, she furthers her efforts in support of the cause by tempting the newly created humans to embrace Lucifer’s persuasion.
Despite the battle lines, Adryel yearns to tell Ramael she loves him still. But how could he ever return her love when she has done more to thwart God’s plans than all the other fallen angels combined?
As Heaven divides and hell arises, Adryel and Ramael must choose sides in the brewing war over the creation of humanity.
Clarissa Sullivan dreams for more from life than sipping tepid tea in stifling parlors in Victorian Boston. She defies her family’s wishes, continuing to teach poor immigrant children in Boston’s West End, finding a much-needed purpose to her life.
As a suffragette, Clarissa is considered a firebrand radical no man would desire. For why should women want the vote when men have sheltered women from the distasteful aspects of politics and law?
When love blossoms between Clarissa and Gabriel McLeod, a struggling cabinetmaker, her family objects. Clarissa’s love and determination will be tested as she faces class prejudices, manipulative family members and social convention in order to live the life she desires with the man she loves.
Will she yield to expectations, or follow her heart on a journey of self-discovery as she learns what she cannot live without?
Caroline Stephens was headstrong and determined. . .
At least those were the two words her father had used to describe her, but when it came to men she’d learned to hold back.
˃˃˃ Working as a maid had been the last thing she wanted to do for the rest of her life. . .
She’d always fancied getting married like her sister Edna had, but she hadn’t been as lucky in love. After their father had passed away the previous year things had been difficult but that was all changing now as she approached the town where she’d meet the man she’d agreed to marry. It would take them time to ease into life together, that was expected.
But how long would that take? And what if he wasn’t the same man as she’d come to know in the letters he’d sent?
˃˃˃ It had taken Leon Shaw a year of working all sorts of odd jobs to establish his ministry. . .
Now, though, he was reaping the rewards. The men seemed to understand the stories he shared about Christ and were giving their lives to the Lord.
He’d considered all aspects of life on the prairie, and the one thing he lacked was a wife with which to share his life. Exchanging letters back and forth with Caroline had been a blessing. He’d started to feel connected to her in a way he hadn’t expected.
Was it possible to fall in love with someone through their words? Because if it was possible, he would think he was in love with Miss Caroline Stephens.
But will a case of mistaken identity cause Caroline to lose the trust in Leon, and threaten to destroy their young marriage?
Will Leon be able to discover the source of Caroline’s doubt, and regain her trust as her husband, and as a man of God?
Will a surprise from Leon’s past help him heal, and help Caroline understand her doubts?
And will God bless Caroline and Leon in a way neither expected?
