Times Arrow

Times Arrow, my time travel historical has been contracted by WRP! :D Based in Headley Cross in 1841, the story contains the train crash from Woodley of the same year. I changed events slightly to fit my story line - the train is going in the opposite direction at a slightly different time of day. But the death toll etc is true to the real event. Sonning Cutting is perhaps half a mile from where we live. We often drive over the bridge, stop and watch the trains pass by underneath on the main Reading to London line. Blurb: Touching a milestone, Joni Peterson is catapulted through time into a world both familiar and strange. Finding herself in Victorian England, she discovers love in the most unexpected place— at the feet of the man whose carriage knocked her down. Lord Sebastian Tyler needs to remarry, but preferably not a woman of his mother’s choosing. The woman his carriage runs over both irritates and fascinates him. Could she be the answer to his prayers? Will the arrow of l

review Just the way you are

Just the way You Are by KM Daughters RELEASES: July 29th BLURB: After surviving a fire, Noelle Walker is finished with undergoing unsuccessful operations to eliminate facial scars and to restore the use of her hand. Her neighbor, owing his life to Noelle's selfless rescue, finances her Valselo pilgrimage where she might experience the living presence of the Mother of God. Noelle silently prays to receive the miracle of self-acceptance so that she might live normally despite her gnawing self-consciousness about her appearance. When she meets the handsome Shane Thompson, his avid, romantic attention makes Noelle believe that perhaps miracles do happen in the quaint Adriatic village. The renowned maxillofacial surgeon doesn't seem to care that her hand is crippled and her face is scarred-that is until he claims he can give her "her miracle." Noelle survived the fire, but will she survive her broken heart after concluding Shane's interest is conditional on fixing he

review - Hearts Communion by Marianne Evans

But Monica harbors one impossible dream: Having children of her own someday. JB and Monica seem the perfect match, but what will come of their electric, sassy relationship when Jeremy learns of Monica's infertility? Hopes and reality collide when they must confront the idea of finding God's plan and following His will when a dearest hope is destined to remain unfulfilled. Can these two loving, passionate hearts survive a communion of dreams and reality? The third in the Woodland Series, Heart’s Communion tells the story of JB and Monica. JB, from book one, comes from a large family and wants noth

Review - the floating palace by JoAnn Carter

The floating palace by JoAnn Carter AVAILABLE July 15, 2011 ELLIE DUNKLING’S life long dream has been to work on one of Lake Champlain’s steamboat, the Ticonderoga. There’s only one problem. Men, not women, are hired to work on ships. Ellie, however is determined to change that. After all, it is 1923 and far from the dark-ages. Captain PHILIP LAWHORN is a man’s man. When Champlain Transportation Inc. informs him a woman has been hired to work on his ship as stewardess, he’s anything but pleased. First, he doesn’t appreciate the fact someone’s hired on his twenty-eight-member crew without his knowledge. Secondly, how is he supposed to handle this company mandated—sure to be—disaster? EXCERPT "Excuse me, captain?" Philip whirled on his heel. A petite woman with a creamy complexion stared at him with wide, hazel eyes. "Yes?" The lady hesitated then put one foot into his room. She held out a gloved hand, which he took automatically. No matter how glad he might
