So he showed Laura McNeal the door… …to his house. Nestled in the country, he figured it would be the ideal hideout. But between the bullets flying through his kitchen window and the alluring damsel in distress seeking shelter in his arms, his embrace—his bed—his home was anything but safe.

Instead of being full of joy, their lives in their beautiful plantation home along the Alabama River reflect the blues sung by their workers. "Will Victoria and Marcus find the answers they need by turning to the Author of their love? Or will the pain of their pasts and their unwillingness to forgive leave their hearts empty and their home filled with bitterness?" The author wrote this novel within a Christian context.

Bluestocking Bride

by Elizabeth Thornton

A study in seduction proves irresistible in this charming Regency romance from the USA Today–bestselling author of the Devereux Trilogy. Educated and brilliant, classics scholar Catherine Hartland has yet to meet a man who takes her intellect seriously or views the fairer sex as anything but mere playthings. Certainly the Marquis of Rutherston is no exception. But, as much as her head demands she ignore his bold, sensual gaze, his beautifully sculpted features, and his clear intent to kiss her senseless, have her heart dictating otherwise. Cynical and weary of matchmaking games, the Marquis is stunned by his own reaction to a woman so different from the docile, biddable beauties he much prefers. Catherine might be the only woman in London immune to his considerable charms, but that immunity convinces him she is the only woman he has to have. And as passion makes Catherine a prisoner of her own desires, she knows the time has come to teach this arrogant gentleman a lesson in the true meaning of love. “I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times–bestselling author of the Westcott Novels “A major, major talent, Ms. Thornton takes her rightful place as a genre superstar.” —RT Book Reviews

In Love’s Magic, Celestia Montehue is the misfit in a family of flame-haired goddesses descended from notorious Queen Boadicea. Her only family likeness is her magical healing ability. An arranged marriage with Nicholas Le Blanc, who is haunted with the guilt of unspeakable actions on crusade, does not bode happiness for the two. Celestia begins to fall in love with him, but her new home, a broken-down keep, is haunted by the ghost of Nicholas’ suicidal mother. A maid is murdered, a curse is revealed, and the couple must discover if there is healing in love’s magic. In Beauty’s Curse, the beautiful, hallowed, and adored Galiana Montehue injures Lord Rourke Wallis, rendering him blind, unable to see the beauty she curses with vehemence. As she nurses the knight to health, she experiences a man’s sincere affection and integrity, and Rourke discovers a depth of fervor he cannot deny. Yet he must complete his mission to recover the stolen magical Breath of Merlin. Together, the passionate couple must unlock the secret to this dangerous, mystical gem or face a future without the love they so recently discovered. In Boadicea’s Legacy, Ela Montahue is a talented sorceress with the ability to heal. However, she must wed for love or forfeit her supernatural power. For her family’s sake, she should marry Lord Thomas de Havel. When Ela refuses, Thomas de Havel abducts her and wages battle against her father in retaliation. Only Osbert Edyvean, a knight with the highest creed, can save her and preserve her gift.

Boadicea's Legacy

by Traci E Hall

Ela Montahue is a talented sorceress with the ability to heal, but distressed over a complicated ancestral legacy. Long ago, a mystical woman known as Boadicea, the famed queen of the Iceni tribe, issued a difficult decree. As her descendant, Ela must wed for love, not practicality, or she will forfeit her supernatural power. In medieval England this is not a socially acceptable order to follow. For her family's sake, she should marry Lord Thomas de Havel, a vile landholder with a cruel streak and a desire to see slavery reinstated-a man with good connections to King John's court. This arrangement would put the Montehues in a safe position in the new regime. The stakes are high-her dignity, her pride, and possibly her life in childbirth. When Ela refuses this repulsive marital transaction, Thomas de Havel abducts her and wages battle against her father in retaliation. Only Osbert Edyvean, a knight with the highest creed-honor, faith, and logic-can save her and preserve her gift. A businessman for the Earl of Norfolk, Osbert has been paid to find Boadicea's spear. Rather than bring back this obscure artifact, he rescues Ela, intending to take her to the earl and obtain his parcel of land. Wary of the supernatural aura surrounding this woman, the admirable knight fights his overwhelming passion for a beautiful lady he wants to protect . . . and love. This is Boadicea's true legacy. - See more at: http://medallionmediagroup.com/books/boadiceas-legacy/#sthash.wNqL4FUL.dpuf
