The Reluctant Earl by Pamela Gibson

 

 



 A housekeeper with a dangerous secret; an earl with an emotional wound.

Can love survive amid a maelstrom of secrets and lies?



The Reluctant Earl

Heirs and Graces Book 1

by Pamela Gibson

Genre: Historical Regency Romance  


 Gerren Stafford, sailor and Cornish wrestler, ran away to sea when his gentle older brother was taunted and killed in a duel, and vowed never to set foot in his homeland again. When a stranger informs him he is the new Earl of Siltsbury, Gerren reluctantly returns to England with a hidden purpose, and to assume a role for which he is woefully unprepared.


Then he meets Anna.


Anna Jeffries is a baroness who is keeping her aristocratic connections a secret. She uses her new position as Siltsbury housekeeper to hide from her late husband’s successor, a man she suspects arranged her husband’s death and is now threatening her with harm if she “dares to spread her vile rumors.”


Drawn together by friendship, loneliness, and hidden emotional wounds, Anna and Gerren find solace in passion. But can they find an enduring love or are there too many secrets and lies between them?

When the wrestling match began Gerren circled his opponent, slightly bent at the waist, his arms hanging loosely at his sides. Then he made his move. He aimed for the legs then picked up the man and slammed him on his back, getting an elbow in his nose for his effort. When the fellow rose, they danced around until a second slam kept his opponent on the floor. It took five minutes, not ten, to be declared the winner. The man signaled his moves and Gerren read them easily. Wiping away the blood trickling over his mouth and chin with the back of his hand, he concentrated on his next opponent and easily outwitted him. Some nights the matches were more even and despite the rules, he’d had fingers broken and a shoulder dislocated that a sawbones had to wrench back into place. The last brute was a big ‘un, taking all of his strength as they danced around each other in a gruesome minuet, grappling, grunting, and finally slamming each other to the floor several times. At the end of the hour Gerren had more pins and remained undefeated. When the announcement was made, the crowd went wild. The noise in the crowded room didn’t abate until someone began singing a bawdy song and others joined in. Gerren slipped away to his personal bucket of water outside the back door where he could clean himself in peace. When he finished wiping the blood from his face, he wasn’t alone. Shiny boots appeared first, followed by a silver-headed walking stick. Sluicing the last of the water over his head and shoulders, he toweled himself dry and hoped he wouldn’t miss that nice tankard of ale waiting for him down the street. “Oy, what do you want? If it’s to rebuke me for winning when you bet on the other lads, come back next week and wager on the winner this time.” Gerren set his towel aside and pulled on a clean shirt. “State your business. I have a place I need to be.” “Are you Gerren Stafford from Falmouth?” “I am although I make my home here in Kingston for now. Haven’t been back in a dozen years. Why?” “Is there somewhere we can talk privately.” Gerren glanced at the darkened alley behind the warehouse. “I guess you can say this is as private as it gets. State your business.” “Your father was Charles Stafford, younger brother of Mathew Stafford, the late Earl of Siltsbury. Charles predeceased his two older brothers.” “You been studying my pedigree? Say what you’re here to say and be done with it.” The man took a packet from an inside pocket of his coat. “Gerren Alexander Stafford, my name is Harold Jenkins. I’m the solicitor for the Siltsbury estate and I’ve been looking for you for more than a year.” “Out with it, man.” Gerren’s body, even in a win, took a beating and he wanted his ale and a woman’s soft bed and body. He had no patience for a fool on a fool’s errand. “In November, 1818, Mathew Stafford, sixth Earl of Siltsbury, succumbed to a wasting disease in Baltimore, Maryland. He had no male heir, nor did he have any living brothers. Your deceased grandfather and your father were the only ones with male issues and your uncles, like your father, have all predeceased you.” “What in bloody hell is this about?” “Congratulations, my lord. It is my duty and my pleasure to inform you that you are the new Earl of Siltsbury and I’m here to take you home.”


 Author of eight books on California history and twenty-two romance novels, Pamela Gibson is a former City Manager who retired with her husband to the Southern Nevada desert. Having spent several years messing about in boats, a hobby that included a five-thousand-mile trip in a 32-foot Nordic Tug, she now spends most of her time indoors happily reading, writing, cooking and keeping up with the antics of Ralph, her Siamese cat. She loves dry red wine, all kinds of chocolate, old Jimmy Buffet sailing songs, and curling up with a good book. You can find her in these places:

Breaker: The Price of Talent Book One by AK Nevermore

 

 


 Beware the Coming Storm...


Breaker

The Price of Talent Book 1

by AK Nevermore

Genre: Spicy Dystopian SciFi Romance


On an alternate earth, a cataclysm has altered a subset of the population. Talents are persecuted for their psychic and physical mutations, giving rise to two conflicting societies based upon maintaining genetic purity. And the Source, a shadowy corporate entity dependent upon the exploitation of captive Talents, is hunting them…

Self-exiled to the Outside, Flynn Scot is oath-bound to a life of strict penance.

Cursed with a vicious temper and haunted by the blood-stained debauchery of his past, Flynn’s sworn off women, whiskey, and violence, and doesn’t give a damn about whispers of the coming war. He sure as hell isn’t in the mood to make good on a debt when it’s called in, especially when playing white knight outs him as a Talent, and the damsel in distress as his soulmate.

On the run from her future as a broodmare for the Source, escaped Talent Kara Jester is no distressed damsel.

And the last thing she wants is to be trapped in a blizzard with a surly—and frustratingly captivating—thug. Without the suppression meds holding her libido in check, her biology’s primed to procreate, and Flynn’s growled assurances that he won’t touch her doesn’t match the hunger in his eyes.

It doesn’t align with what fate has in store for them, either.

With elite troops hot on their heels and the border set to close, it’s a race to the North, away from Kara’s horrific future and towards the dark past Flynn wants to keep buried. Clinging to the shreds of his oath, he’s forced to choose between protecting the woman he’s afraid to love and letting out the animal he swore he’d never be again. Either may destroy him, if Kara’s secrets don’t get them killed first.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN...

 By Caroline Clemmons

 

Ever since my family had a German couple as landlords when I was a little girl in Bakersfield, California, I have been fascinated by the German language—and the country. Our landlords spoke German when nosy little girls were near. I suspect they hoped it would discourage me, but it only caused me to eavesdrop whenever I could. That wasn’t often. Of course, my mother would not have permitted it if she had known.

My fascination didn’t wane after my family moved back to Texas, but I couldn't do much to feed my obsession except read the encyclopedias. I took German 101 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. The professor was an  exchange professor from Germany. His stories of his homeland increased my desire to visit there. Finally, after many years, my husband began traveling to Germany occasionally. I was able to tag along several times.

In the meantime, both our daughters had taken German classes. On one trip they accompanied us. Our oldest had her heart set on a genuine cuckoo clock. In my favorite city of Munich, she had practiced how to ask for one in a shop. The first place we tried didn’t have them, but the clerk gave us directions in German to a clock shop not far away. I could tell she spoke English and was humoring our daughter. With only our smattering of German, we were elated when we understood the directions and found the right shop. Sadly, now we couldn’t do it—use it or lose it! We lost it.

When I thought of starting a fresh historical western romance mail order bride series, I wanted the first brides to be German. The area I love most is Bavaria. So, Adelheid “Heidi” Roth became the first mail order bride for the new sweet series, the Texas Hill Country Mail Order Brides. Her groom is Gentry McRae. (You may notice that is not the name of the groom to whom she commits herself in the excerpt below.)

Heidi


Heidi is a beautiful blond of 25 and is 5’ 10” tall. Without consciously intending it, Heidi’s family takes advantage of her. Well, maybe her sister intends to do so. Although Heidi has a quick temper, she usually keeps it in check rather than create strife in her family. Her spoiled younger sister, Willhamina, makes no attempt to hide her feeling of superiority because she is married and Heidi is not. 

Heidi's Bavarian Hometown


Several times recently, the local matchmaker has invited Heidi to visit her regarding Johann Meyer, a former resident who is now living in America. His mother also calls on Heidi. However, Heidi wants to find a husband on her own. One day, insults go too far and Heidi’s control snaps. She throws her pride and her apron aside and goes to the matchmaker.

Here the excerpt of the result:

Although she hated to leave her parents, she was tired of her family members criticizing her. If she needed to support herself, she could cook and sew and clean and do accounts. Her heart pounded so loud she thought Mrs. Heinz must hear it.

Heidi took a deep breath. “I believe Johann and I can make a good marriage.”

The matchmaker leaned back and clasped her hands to her chest. “Wonderful, my dear! You are a beautiful woman and a good daughter. I know how hard you work to help your mother, and even find time to help Mr. Schneider with his bookkeeping.”

“Thank you,” was all Heidi could say.

“I am so pleased you will have your own home—and it sounds like a very nice one. I have your funds and your travel arrangements. Mrs. Meyer was so sure you would accept that she has given me your tickets and the cash you’ll need for incidentals.”

Heidi cleared her throat to remove the lump that had lodged there. “You mean… you mean I am supposed to leave immediately?”

Mrs. Heinz held up a hand in a motion to halt. “You must get to your ship by the end of the month. To do so, you must leave in fourteen days. Please write Johann a letter today while you are here. I will mail it immediately so he will have it before you arrive.” She handed Heidi several sheets of paper and set the inkwell and pen near her.

Gentry, groom by default


Heidi travels for weeks to reach Harrigan Springs, Texas. When she arrives, huge surprises await her. If you haven’t read GENTRY AND THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE, I hope you’ll do so and then follow the series. You don't need to read the books in order, but you'll enjoy them more if you do. Each book is available in e-book and print. They are all enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. Here’s the Amazon link for GENTRY.

Mirrored Wounds by Rebecca Christo

 

 


 When the present mirrors her past wounds, Laura begins to unravel  


Mirrored Wounds

by Rebecca Christo

Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction, Psychological Mystery




 Laura's life was finally good. She'd freed herself from the clutches of an abusive partner, left an unrewarding career as an interior designer to follow her dreams of becoming a writer, and was finally happy. And things were only getting better. Her very first novel had struck a chord with readers and become a bestseller, but when the murder she'd described in its pages suddenly gets played out in real life, with her beloved husband as the victim, it is obvious to her that she looks guilty, despite having an alibi that would have been difficult to fake.



As the investigation proceeds, with little or no progress being made, bizarre happenings in the security-protected home she'd shared with her husband have her questioning her own sanity, despite the reassurance of her therapist. Could she have murdered the first man to ever make her feel truly loved and secure and then just ... forgotten somehow? Surely not. But as even more troubling events come to light, with no logical explanation besides her own guilt, she finds herself questioning everything she knows to be true ... including her own innocence.



I sat back on my patio chair and closed my eyes towards the sun. The temperature had reached record breaking highs for September and I wanted to soak it all in. I took a sip of my iced coffee and dialed Cassie’s cell.  
 
“Hey you!” She said in a cheery voice.  
 
I smiled. Cassie was the manager of a new five- star hotel in the city and she was usually too busy to take personal calls, but she loved her job.  “Do you have a second to chat?” 

 “Surprisingly for a change, yes!” Cassie said. She worked non-stop, so our conversations were usually through text message.  It was nice to hear her voice.  
 
“How are things Cas?” I asked.  

 “You, know.  Work keeps me so busy I barely have time for a social life, and when I do go out, all the guys I meet are assholes.” She said with a laugh. “How are you doing Laura?”   

 “So good.” I told her.  “Matt is back next week so I’m just enjoying this beautiful weather!”  

 Matt and I had been married for nine years now.  The day I left the city, he had met me at the new house to sign the lease and give me the keys. He was good-looking with a quirky smile.  I remember being incredibly self-conscience about the scar on my face, but he didn’t seem to notice.  He just chatted politely about the house and his renovation ideas like we had known each other for years.  

  “Awe, I’m so happy for you Laura” Cassie said, “we should all go away for the weekend soon.”  

 “I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to pry Amy away from her kids!” I said and we both laughed.  

 We had been planning a weekend away for a while but Amy and Sam had two kids now that were their entire lives.  After they got married, they had tried for years to get pregnant, and finally gave up on the idea. After they stopped trying, she got pregnant right away and had two boys back- to- back. Elliot is ten years old, and Oliver is nine and they are her everything. Amy was born to be a mother.  

“I’m writing a book,” I told Cassie hesitantly “I’ve been working on it for a few months.”  This wasn’t the first time I had tried to write a book, and I was starting to feel like no one would take me seriously.  After I left the city, I had tried to write several books on interior design but I always ended up hating them and had never finished.  I enjoyed journaling everyday though, and I wanted something creative to focus on so a few months ago I had decided to start a fictional novel.  

 “Is it about……..what happened?” She asked hesitantly.  Paul Johnson was about to be released from jail.  Apparently, he had stabbed another inmate while serving his time and the judge had thrown the book at him.  During the trial, I had been contacted and asked to do a victim impact statement for court.  Now that he was finally being released, my therapist had suggested journaling my feelings about it as a coping mechanism but it was still difficult to think about even after all this time. The thought of him being out made me cringe.  

 “No, I’m still not ready to write about that nightmare,” I said “My book is fiction.” I told her, “you will love it because it’s about a woman who kills her husband.” I said giggling.  

“Ha! I can’t wait to read it.” Cassie said, “Sounds fantastic!”  

 “I don’t know if it will be any good, but it will keep me busy while Matt is at work.” I chuckled. 

I hadn’t worked since I left the city years ago, and Matt managed remote projects so he traveled for work.  He was often gone for weeks at a time. It was the only thing that I didn’t love about Matt. I hated being alone so much, but I was getting better at it. I no longer called him at work panicking if the house creaked or if I heard a noise outside.   

When Matt asked me to marry him, I happily accepted the proposal and he immediately took a job working locally.  He insisted that if we were going to be a family, part of that meant him being home every night.  Initially, I loved the idea, but within a couple of months the spark disappeared from his eyes. He didn’t find his new job challenging and he often returned home at the end of the day in a bad mood. It didn’t take me long to see that he was unhappy with his new career choice, and I hated to see him sacrifice what he loved for our marriage.  The day I told him he should return to remote building projects I could see the relief in his eyes. I didn’t want him to ever have to choose between me and the career that he loved.

COME TO THE BEACH

 By Caroline Clemmons

Are you looking for the perfect short summer read? I recommend THE MAN IN GULL COTTAGE for a contemporary delve into a sweet, fun, happily-ever-after story set on Last Chance Beach.

Bestselling suspense author C. H. Logan, using his real name of Carter Harte, values his privacy and anonymity so much that no one on the island knows what he does for a living. He stays in his beach home year around and only visits his condo in the city when he has business there. People on the island consider him the eccentric man in Gull Cottage. 

Zara Webb has come to vacation on the island with her long time best friend. For two weeks, they’ve rented Sea Oats Cottage just up the beach from Gull Cottage.  Zara has a difficult decision to make and has two weeks to reach a conclusion. She’s weighing whether to accept the major promotion she’s been offered that would mean losing any chance of a personal life or remaining in her present job knowing the promotion would never be offered again.

Carter believes he’s impervious to tourists—until he meets Zara.   

The buy link is https://www.amazon.com/Man-Gull-Cottage-Caroline-Clemmons-ebook/dp/B093FV4QDH/



Here’s an excerpt from THE MAN IN GULL COTTAGE:

He cleared his throat. “This part of the beach is private.”

She paused and stared at him. “What part?”

He jerked a thumb in the direction from which she’d come. “See the three round wooden pillars? That’s where my land starts.”

She turned and shielded her eyes with her hand. “Oh, I thought those were to keep people from driving their cars on the sand.”

“That, too, but one has a large sign that says Gull Cottage and Private Beach. That should have been a clue.”

She held up a kid’s plastic sand pail. “Are you saying I should return these shells I’ve collected for my niece?”

“I’m saying you’re on private property. I don’t care if you collect sea shells, but I’d appreciate you not disturbing anything else.”

“Like what? You think I’m coming up to rob your house? Wait, what if I took a clump of sea oats? Or a handful of your sand? Are you patrolling?”

He extended his hand palm out. “Don’t get mad at me when you’re the one trespassing. I meant collecting drift wood and sea glass or destroying sand dunes. I’m simply out here walking on my beach.”

She straightened her shoulders and looked at the barrier. “Well, see that you don’t walk on that side of those posts.”

“Ah, but I will and I can do so legally.” He gestured broadly. “The beach where you’re staying is public. This part is private. See the difference?”

“No, I don’t see the difference. It’s the same sand.”

 

I hope you’ll read and enjoy this story. Have a great week and keep reading!

by J.A. Culican

Genre: Epic Fantasy, Paranormal Romance  


The Gods may think they own the fire soldiers, but they have no idea of the inferno that’s coming.

I was born from Ares with the fire given to him from his one true love. Though the Gods imprisoned him as punishment for loving a woman that wasn’t his, he forged a kingdom from the flames and made his children his soldiers.

Now that Ares is gone, the Gods will stop at nothing to control the Kingdom of Fire and all who inhabit it. But I was created to fight, so, in Ares name I'll avenge his murder and reduce them all to ashes for what they have done to my family.

The only problem is, my brethren don’t fully understand what’s at stake, so I’m on my own fighting a battle with a cursed trait no one knows about. When Karim, a half centaur/half siren and my sworn enemy since birth takes my side as I stand up to the Gods, I’m torn, but without anyone else to help save the fire soldiers, I have to accept help from my age old rival, with secrets of his own.

I might not like it, but he’s the only thing between my eternal servitude and scorching the earth with the bones of the Gods that enslave us. We are coming for the thrones of the Gods, and I’m not going to let anything stand in my way. Between us, we’ll set the heavens ablaze and watch the ashes fall.

God Slayer

Throne of Gods Book 2

The gods have reigned in wickedness for too long. My brethren and I will take their thrones—even if it means tearing everything apart.

No one said that saving the world from the evil Olympians would be easy. Our losses are beyond number, and our peoples have been forced to endure unimaginable suffering. Every day, it becomes harder for the common folk to hold on, to envision a brighter future.

And to make matters worse, the evil gods show no signs of backing down. The Olympians are converging on a new vacuum of power, and the stage has been set for a massive battle in the fortified city of Caepernus—a battle that will take everything we've got. Will the walls of the city hold? Can we muster up the manpower to drive back the mighty armies of Olympus?

Truth is, we don't have a choice but to succeed. If we fail, all will be lost.

Even in the destruction and chaos, I'm finding more and more to love and defend, though. Battle has a way of drawing people together, and close-knit friendships are budding even as we face these incredible odds. Strange as it may seem, in times of war love may grow between former enemies...

Cursed Warrior

Throne of Gods Book 3

The war is coming to a close. But who will prevail?

My brethren and I have given everything to destroy the rule of the old gods, but the victory is not yet won. The remaining powers of Olympus have their sights set on us, and the clash we're preparing for will shake the world to its very foundations.

And just when things couldn't get any more dangerous, our efforts are interrupted by a vile betrayal.

The traitor in our midst threatens to destroy the powerful bond between me and my brethren, and to give scheming Apollo exactly what he needs to ruin us. More than that, this betrayal could lead to the death of the one I love most before our romance even has a chance to take root.

Dispirited and exhausted, we have no choice but to pull through, and to prepare for the largest battle the world has ever seen. Snatching the thrones from the remaining Olympians will take us to the very limits of our strength, and it's possible that we won't make it out alive. There are no guarantees, even for a daughter of Ares...

If we don't do it, no one will. And if we can't succeed, then no one can.

Cursed Warrior is sure to thrill and delight readers looking for a simmering enemies-to-friends romance. Fans of Game of Thrones and Greek myths won't want to miss the pulse-pounding action and mind-blowing twists of this third installment!

Captured King

Throne of Gods Book 4

  

The war may be over, but the struggle has only just begun...

With numerous Olympians out of the picture, my brethren and I will have a chance to pick up the pieces and enjoy our new positions, right?

Wrong. Dead wrong.

In the aftermath of a long and grueling campaign, the world is thrust once more into darkness. The peace and healing we'd all hoped for is threatened by a dark presence from the past—one who will bring our war-weary world to the brink of conflict once again.

And it gets worse. No one tells you what it's like to wield real power, to occupy the throne of a major kingdom. To say that my friends and I will have to go through some growing pains and put our real desires on the back-burner is an understatement. Old wounds still need healing and old treacheries continue to bring pain into the present.

We gave our all to bring hope to the people of the world, but holding onto our new thrones is going to prove more difficult than gaining them ever was.

Fans of Game of Thrones and Greek mythology will love Captured King, the fourth installment in the exciting Throne of Gods series! If you've been looking for a slow-burning friends-to-enemies romance with a generous helping of action, look no further!

Eternal Kingdoms

Throne of Gods Book 5


Peace was almost in our grasp. Now, it couldn't be further out of reach...

A war-shattered world. The bonds of love and friendship strained to the breaking point. A colossal evil threatening to sow chaos.

When my brethren and I stepped up to build a new world and challenged the corrupt Olympians, we never expected that filling their thrones would be easy. Being forced from one struggle to the next and made to shoulder great tensions has been more punishing than expected, though. Worse, it's only driven some of us apart.

Stresses run high and relationships have become choppy. The love I'd once pursued has been forced into the background as more profound challenges loom ahead. A fight unlike anything we've ever seen is brewing—a clash that threatens to destroy everything we've worked so hard to accomplish.

So, what do we have left now that the end draws near? At this pivotal moment, what can we rely upon?

As always, we only have each other. Friends new and old will have to assemble to meet this threat head-on.

The stakes have never been higher. If our reign is to be eternal and the peaceful world we've dreamt of a reality, then we have to come together and win.

Eternal Kingdoms marks the stunning finale of the Throne of Gods series! Fans of Greek myths and Game of Thrones will find nail-biting twists, ample action and a riveting slow-burn romance in its pages!

Throne of Gods Prequel

The king of the underworld has been taken by surprise.

Since time immemorial, the gods of Olympus have ruled. Now, a mysterious challenger emerges, seeking their thrones...

Ares, god of war and ruler of the powerful Fire Kingdom, discovers a threat to his empire. Arising from obscurity, a maverick king of the eastern territories has launched an attack in the valley of Hades. This enigmatic king, Sisyphus, wields a mythical blade and begins to set his sights on other Olympian strongholds, with plans to unite them all under his rule.

When his requests for help fall on deaf ears, the god of war takes matters into his own hands.

Eager to stamp out Sisyphus' ambitions, Ares puts together a strike force, comprised of his most promising Fire Kingdom warriors. Among them is Xira, a talented young recruit and descendant of Ares. Relatively inexperienced, will the fiery young warrior prove herself, or will she fail the god of war in his hour of need?

This pulse-pounding prequel novella sets the stage for the Throne of Gods series. Fans of Greek mythology and blistering fantasy action won't want to miss it!
