    Summary

    Vampires take over the world one Wednesday night. Cecilia Talbot, basic family black sheep, struggles to adapt to her new place in the social order- as a royal in one of the vampire courts. Her temptation to become complacent is strong; who wouldn't want to live forever when nothing will ever be denied you? But she knows there's a cost. Faced with her new reality- faction-driven infighting, elaborate etiquette rituals, and a lot of murder, of course- she decides to fight for a different path.
    A shadowy rebel government, a growing human resistance movement, ancient vampire history, and a very talented couturier add to the intrigue, but ultimately the choice is Celia's: does she believe she can make a better world?

    Summary

    Princess Elizabeth meets with her French half-brothers. In a bizarre twist of fate, King Henry remarries, not knowing that his 7th wife is in mutual love with his cousin, the Marquess of Exeter. Henry and his armies are entrapped. The Duke of Suffolk does something very heroic.

    Exiled from England, Anne Boleyn enters into a political marriage to King François when France is ravaged by the Habsburg invaders. The deadly intrigues of the Tudor, Valois, and Habsburg families and courts are entangled with drama, passion, and wars.   

    This story is a long Tudor-Valois-Habsburg-Medici epic, written with authentic historical detail, plausibly blending facts with fiction. It is a long series of many historical novels about Henry VIII's queens and the Edwardian era while keeping Anne Boleyn alive.

    Summary

    In 1729 England, Venus must choose between two potential suitors, both of which have their own flaws and strengths - all of which have the power to ensnare her in a web of love, but she holds disgust for men. This disgust she has for men has been harboured inside of her for the years leading up to where she is now.

    With her family writing two letters for the arranged marriage for Venus's paw, it is only a matter of time before she discovers that love is the one thing that she should treasure with all of her heart. Can John Hawthorne's kiss be enough to tame the hate within her that has been hidden away inside of her ever since she was a young girl? This will be the ultimate test for her and for the man that she was destined for.

    And, when her decision is made, what lengths will she go to hold onto the man that was meant for her all along? Is there a way that John Hawthorne can convince her of his worth to have her paw in holy matrimony? Can she find her happily ever after or was it never meant to be?

    As you read what is inside, you will soon discover that there is more to this Venus than meets the eyes. Will her happily ever after come true? Read to find out...

    Summary

    She stirred to the most severe pain in her head. Groaning, she placed a hand on the back of her head. The room didn’t brighten at all - but the lights were wavering because of the candlelight.

    A now-familiar cloak was draped over here as a blanket. She fingered the velvet lining and looked around: a shadowed figure hung across the room, and she settled him with a tired glare.

    “Was the strike to my head really necessary?” She groaned.

    The silhouette shifted slightly, recoiling a little, she thought perhaps. “I did not want you to scream.”

    She used a nearby wall to get to her feet, plumping out the bustle of her skirt. Her head ached sharply, and it made her irritable. “Then you shouldn’t be grabbing women in dark alleys, monsieur.”

     

    A self indulgent OFC phantom fic that has been eating my brain in lockdown for three weeks. Too many descriptions of fashion, too much research in places and wild inaccuracies in others.

    Summary

    1870. Belle Eagle, Tennessee.

    Five years after the war that devastated her home, Ada Long is still an old maid. She's content with the life she has, working in the cotton fields. But when a young railroad worker arrives, he upends the ties she thought she had to her life and her home.

    Harper dreams of leaving the ruined South, of going west to Oregon, and Ada decides to join him. But committing to a two thousand mile journey on foot and by wagon isn't the hard part. The hard part is walking that trail when it intersects with the newly-built railroad all the way west, unable to take the quicker way.

    This is the story of one woman who chose to go to Oregon at the speed of fifteen miles a day, rather than fifteen miles an hour.

    Summary

    The wide cut of the dress collar gave Anne all the access she needed to scrap her teeth gently across the firm rise of Catherine's cleavage. 

    "This is a bad idea", Catherine groaned, both of her hands buried in the insanely long, curly mess that was her former lady's hair.

    Summary

    Will had told Madoc not to mess with that crumbling magic book. Madoc had turned his DEFCON-one-grade pleading eyes on Will, though, and Will, predictably, had caved immediately.

    Now, of course, they were apparently stuck in Ancient Wales. Fantastic. Will kind of liked that he could throw his phone out with impunity, but Madoc's grumbling wasn't very pleasant, especially considering it was Madoc's fault they were here in the first place, like.

    Will could also definitely do without the Arthur-lookalike ranting about how magic was evil and corrupted the soul and all. This Arthur was definitely more annoying than the one Will knew, that much was certain.
