SHE HAD NEVER LEFT HER VILLAGE
The day Nora Nicholson sets foot on board the frigate, the Dolphin bound for West Africa, she steps into a new world. Unmarried at 26, she has no choice but to follow her brother Edward. How could she guess what would happen? She finds work illustrating birds for the naturalist and ship’s surgeon, John Sharples. She forms an unlikely friendship with flamboyant Senhora Morena. And she meets Hugh Beaumont, naturalist and explorer, late of the 95th Rifles.
HE COULD NOT WAIT TO LEAVE RESPONSIBILITIES BEHIND HIM
Through the long years of the War, he had led men into battle. Many never returned. Now he has a chance to pursue his dream of exploring the West African rivers and forests. But he can’t walk away from problems, whether it’s bringing criminals to justice or protecting a young lady who needs help. When love enters the picture, can he find a way to have it all?
NEW WORLDS CALL FOR NEW WAYS OF LIVING
After a terrible accident, Nora must fend for herself. Perhaps she is stronger than she has been taught–perhaps she can choose her own destiny. Hugh believes old values are holding back progress. He is ready to defy his family to claim his heart’s desire–if only he can master himself.
The next book in The Explorer Club Series, Hidden Heart, will be released in mid 2017.
RESPECTABLE LOVE WAS CLOSED TO HER
Lady Selena Lambert lost both husband and lover on the battlefields of Waterloo. Believing she cannot now accept an honorable man, she embraces the luxury of the Autumn house party at Redfearn House as the first step of her new life of pleasure. Gentleman of leisure Richard Burrard is grooming her to become his latest mistress as she feels drawn to Martin Redfearn, Viscount Aughton.
BORN INTO THE HIGHEST CIRCLES, HE HELD RADICAL PRINCIPLES
Martin Redfearn loved his ancestral lands more than anything else. His father, Charles, Earl of Wexcombe, uses that love to push Martin toward a Society marriage. But Martin cares little for Society as such. His ideas are modern and he will wed only for love. But unfinished business from war-ravaged France claims his attention. Can he make a clear choice?
A HOUSE OF SECRETS
In the Autumn of 1816, cross currents and cross purposes will make this one of the more interesting house parties at Redfearn. The War is over and lives on hold can now move forward. Who among those present will attain their heart’s desire?
