But there was nothing funny about the duke's intentions, the transfixing gaze of his dark eyes or the firm set of his sensual mouth.Being swept away to the castle of a handsome stranger was every bit as idyllic as it sounded in fairy tales-except the dashing duke was more disarming than charming. Swarthy and sophisticated, Nicolas took Jana's breath away, but did he want her...or her crown?

This is a detailed but never dull account of the life of Mary Stewart, who was the queen of France during her late teens and the queen of Scotland for about 6 years after the early death of her first husband, frail, young King Francois. Though she was born and raised to rule Scotland, its people who were rapidly adopting the reform protestant faith under John Knox were dissatisfied with a Catholic queen raised in France. She married the second time for love and to gain the support of queen Elizabeth I of England. She was unable to grant a king's rights to Darnley, her second husband because she soon realized he was drunk, temperamental and irrational most of the time. He became abusive to Mary and found pleasure with hired women disillusioning the young queen. After Darnley's murder she gave her heart to Bothwell, a loyal, fighting Scotsman who guarded her borders, maintained her navy and was already married. Plots and resentment against her accumulated until she fled for her life to England where she was imprisoned and spent nearly 20 years negotiating an escape. Mary was peace-loving. She lacked intelligence and understanding of Scotland and was unable to surround herself with loyal advisors who could compensate for her shortcomings. She was brave, passionate, and faithful to those she loved and to the Catholic church. Unfortunately her impulsive nature and inability to assess her place in the politics of the time were her undoing. Her story is compelling, moving, fascinating, reading. The author has researched the time and characters exhaustively. You will be entertained and informed and will be so lost in the latter half of the 16th century that you'll be sorry when this 870 page novel comes to an end. In an afterward, the author, Margaret George, explains various theories about Mary's personality, points out the few elements in the novel she has fictionalized and provides suggestions for further reading.
Told in the first person, this is a thoroughly researched biographical novel of the life of Cleopatra, and through the telling of her life, a history of Rome and Egypt of the period 69 to 30 BCE. In an entertaining way, the reader learns a lot about the politics, battles, customs, and culture of the two countries (and even at one point the economics of Egypt, unbelievably interesting) and their effect on their world, as well as about Cleopatra and her relationships with Caesar and Marc Antony, and their personalities. There is a bibliography and an interesting Author's Note. I checked several online sources and they confirm the facts as related in the book. Any problems, contact Cindy email@example.com
Was she dreaming? Hours before the costumed "Pirate's Ball," Elizabeth Rawley witnessed a strange spectacle in the waters off Key West. She could have sworn she saw the Black Cutter, an 18th-century warship, engaged in combat. The ship's treasure had been her obsession for years, but even more intriguing was the ship's legendary captain, a swashbuckling privateer who commanded the high seas and made women swoon. Elizabeth knew she and Captain Richard Colter would have loved each other with a passion to rock the heavens. If only they hadn't lived 200 years apart. Then, on a moonlit beach, she found a man washed ashore. A man whose 18th-century clothes were authentic. A man who truly looked like Richard Colter. A man very much alive.
