Title: Anne and Charles
Author: Rozsa Gaston
Genre: Historical Fiction
Blurb:
When Anne of Brittany’s father dies in 1488, she becomes Duchess of Brittany, her country’s ruler at age eleven. For the next three years, the unmarried, orphaned duchess is pursued by suitors while Brittany is invaded by its larger, more powerful neighbor of France. With no other way out, at age fourteen she agrees to marry Charles VIII, King of France, to save her country. Better to be a queen than a prisoner…
Unexpectedly, a passionate relationship ensues. Yet Charles cannot shake off bad habits he has brought into their marriage, and Anne cannot help him in his darkest area of struggle.
Together, they introduce the wonders of the Italian Renaissance to France, building one of Europe’s most glorious 15th century courts at their royal residence in Amboise, in the heart of the Loire Valley.
But year after year they fail to achieve the one most important aim they must accomplish to secure the future of their kingdom. As they desperately attempt to make their shared dream come true, an unexpected twist of fate irrevocably changes the fortunes of both Anne and Charles.
Book One of the Anne of Brittany Series, the gripping tale of a larger than life queen. Next in the series is Anne and Louis, general fiction winner of the Publishers Weekly 2018 BookLife Prize.
Continue your discovery of Anne of Brittany with Sense of Touch: Love and Duty at Anne of Brittany’s Court, a captivating tale of forbidden love in the 15th century French royal court.

“And did my worries not trouble you when your army saw fit to invade my father’s castle in Nantes?” The duchess’ eyes narrowed but not before a flash like the glint of a steel blade escaped them, nicking Charles with its intensity.
Charles thought fast. “They did, my lady. And for that reason, every item in the castle of your birth is intact and untouched by my men.”
“And my books?”
“All five-hundred-and-fifty-three, my lady. Have you read many of them?”
“I have, Monsieur. My father raised me well.”
“I am much impressed.” Her self-confidence shot a thrill through him. What he wouldn’t give to own a smidgen of such confidence or to have a woman with such at his side, helping him rule his kingdom. “And my father didn’t raise me well, but maybe one day I will be a father who imparts learning to his children the way Duke Francis did with you.” He straightened himself to his highest height possible—not very high in anyone’s book. Fortunately, the woman he addressed was a good hand shorter, as slight as a wisp, but with every appearance of sturdiness in her demeanor.
He watched as she studied him, her mouth formed into the shape of a rosebud. The unruly thought of kissing it sprang up inside him, like an underground spring breaking through to the surface. He stifled it.
“My father was a great man.” A wistful smile played on the duchess’ lips.
In his own estimation, Duke Francis II had not been an especially great ruler. But God forbid he get in the way of the love between a daughter and her father, Charles thought, remembering his own father’s love for his eldest daughter. Louis XI had made him feel like a simpleton, only fit to be led around by his much smarter oldest sister.
Charles’ blood boiled. The moment had come to change what others thought of him, beginning with his family members.
“Will you come with me, Princesse la Duchesse?” He held out his hand, praying she would take it. He could see she pined for her father. He would try to substitute— although his feelings, when he drank in her sweet face and figure, were anything but fatherly.
Anne of Brittany lifted her chin and hesitated. Charles sensed the room freeze, the duchess’ attendants intent upon their sovereign’s next move.
“Where do you lead me?” Her hand remained at her side.
He had no idea, but it looked as if she was used to having her way, so he tossed the ball into her court. “To the direction you tell me your favorite garden is in.”
“A good plan.” Her smile this time was wider, but not too wide—just wide enough to swallow the reason of the young king of France in its expanse. Stepping forward, she took his hand.
Title: Under His Protection
Author: Stacy Von Haegert
Genre: Historical Romance
Publication Date: Feb. 24th, 2020
Blurb:
A richly textured and unforgettable Historical Romance by International Bestselling Author Stacy Von Haegert!
Most debutantes meet their intendeds at polite societal gatherings, not over a duel in Hyde park. However, Greyland Kingston is not your typical young lady, and her family is far from conventional.
Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, is about to find out how unique the family is when he becomes unwittingly entangled with the newly arrived Kingston’s from New Orleans–one family member in particular.
With her spirited personality and innocent aversion to all things proper, Greyland Kingston completely throws him off his well-established game. The gossip fans start to flutter when Greyland, her two older brothers and distinguished father, make their debut. Who is this family? How do they know the Queen? Why does the patriarch look like the ghost of the long-ago Plantagenet King, Edward the IV?
Trouble ensues in the form of jealous women, ambitious men, and a vengeful Irish clan. Alexander quickly finds that having Greyland for his own will come at a steep price…
And he must risk everything to keep her protected.

The sound of thundering hooves trampling over the earth brought Alex’s mind right back to the present. All three men jerked their heads toward the intrusion. A bay steed burst through the bush carrying a wild-eyed girl. Her beautifully carved slender legs were exposed up to her knees and she was missing one of her slippers.
The horse immediately sensed the wolf and reared straight up. Surprisingly, the bareback rider managed to hug tight to the beast’s neck and stayed on. As the front hooves made contact with the ground—and before the horse could rise in protest again—the girl catapulted off the side and unsuccessfully grabbed for the reins. The mare bolted away.
“Damn!” she said, simply annoyed, as if she had lost a shilling rather than a thoroughbred.
“What on earth!” Perkin’s previous calm appearance all but shattered into a thousand pieces in front of them.
“Is that a wolf?” The girl’s sites fixated on Malikite, a glint in her bright eyes, her breathing coming hard, causing her small breasts to rise and fall, threatening to escape a much-too-slack bodice.
Alex stared. Who on earth had helped this poor woman dress? Clearly a dressing-maid with a vengeance. Unless the young lady before them was newly escaped from the asylum. Which might explain the entry.
The girl was completely disheveled. A twig dangled from her raven-black curls. Windblown pink cheeks decorated her milk-white skin and a bead of perspiration highlighted her cupid-bow lips. Her eyes were like the palest green of the sea, and they raged as wild as a developing storm. Never in his wildest dreams had he ever thought a woman could be this…inspiring. Captivating. Alive! She had to be from the asylum, Alex concluded. Someone’s daughter or young bride that had lost her wits and had to be committed.
Still, she was magnificent, albeit likely touched in the head. Alexander felt a stir in his fawn-colored trousers. He tried to retrieve his thoughts from their rapid downward descent. He could have any woman in London and had turned down half of them in the past month alone due to a lack of interest. Now here he was, the Duke of Ravenswood, in the middle of the park getting brought to life by a lunatic. Gone completely was the conundrum of the previous conversation with Perkin Kingston. The issue at hand now may well be his own dwindling sanity.

Shanghai 1879

Two sisters, one driving desire for passion.

After her sister’s successful marriage, Isabelle Forster is sure she’ll only ever be an old maid aunt. That is until she meets Langdon Deveraux. He’s tall, he’s dashing, and he excites her enough to take a walk on the wild side. But with only a month to explore Shanghai before her sister and brother-in-law have decreed they must return to England, time is short.

Langdon wants Isabelle from the first moment they meet, but with the news that she’s leaving shortly, he’s propelled into action after she makes an advance that leaves him reeling. Marriage is the only answer, but he’s got other pressing issues: hunting down the opium importers and pressure from his superior to see if the Forster sisters are involved.

Between the opium problem and issues with running Forster Shipping, Isabelle is learning to accept her sexuality and changed circumstances. It’s going to make the first weeks of marriage full of adventure and danger.

About the Author

Margaret Tanner is an award winning, bestselling Australian author, who mainly writes Historical Romance and Historical Western Romance. She loves delving into the pages of history as she carries out research for her novels. No internet site is too boring, no book is too old or tattered for her to trawl through, no museum too dusty.

Her love of Westerns came about because of the movies and TV shows of her childhood. Some of her favorites were Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wagon Train and Little House on The Prairie.

Many of her novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of her pioneering ancestors. She once spent a couple of hours in an old prison cell so she could feel the chilling cold and fear.

Apart from her family and friends, writing is her passion.

Margaret is married with three grown up sons and two gorgeous little granddaughters.
