The Last Rose Pearl
by
Grace Walton

DescriptionThe year is 1812 and Britain is at war with America.

In London, Dylan St. John is the most handsome rake in the Regency’s tight-knit aristocratic circles. Deemed Heartless St. John, he’s also the American heir of the Duke of MacAllister. Everyone in society knows these two facts. No one knows he also works as a spy for the new American Commissioner of Peace. He’s the darling of Mayfair and the prime catch of the Marriage Mart. He swears he’ll never be caught in parson’s mouse trap.

In Savannah, Rory Windsor vows never to marry, as well. A Christian, she’s busy running an orphanage for children of mixed heritage. She wears britches, rides astride, and manages her family’s shipping business. No stranger to tragedy, she makes a black mourning bead for each person she loses. She wears them as a necklace. Miss Windsor has far too many black rose pearls. She’s considered a beautiful bluestocking and a pesky social reformer.


They Call Me Merlin Sherlock
by
Carl Stevens

DescriptionEverything you thought you knew about sex, society and family is wrong and once you’ve stopped laughing at the 182 year old wizard who looks like a 26 year old kid, you might just realize you’ve learned something -- something more than whodunnit in the latest merry mystery of Thaddeus and Melda. They Call Me Merlin Sherlock is Thaddeus’ lament and an attempt to convert his fellow wizards from mockery of to admiration for his application of wizard’s lore to such mundane endeavors as the recovery of an English baronet’s stolen tea pot valued at half a million pounds. Along the way he acquires a skeptical American assistant and they meet enough English eccentrics to fill a loony bin or a conference of wizard’s, if anyone can tell the difference.
