Lacewood by Jessica James

Publication Date: June 18, 2019
Patriot Press
eBook; 348 Pages

Genre: Historical Fiction

 

 

Sometimes love is just too powerful for one lifetime…

Part love story, part ghost story, Lacewood is a timeless novel about trusting in fate, letting go of the past, and believing in things that can’t be seen.

MOVING TO A SMALL TOWN in Virginia is a big change for New York socialite Katie McCain. But when she stumbles across an abandoned 200-year-old mansion, she’s enthralled by the enduring beauty of the neglected estate—and captivated by the haunting portrait of a woman in mourning.

Purchasing the property on a whim, Katie attempts to fit in with the colorful characters in the town of New Hope, while trying to unravel the mystery of the “widow of Lacewood.” As she pieces together the previous owner’s heartrending story, Katie uncovers secrets the house has held for centuries, and discovers the key to coming to terms with her own sense of loss.

The past and present converge when hometown hero Will Durham returns and begins his own healing process by helping the “city girl” restore the place that holds so many memories. As the mystic web of destiny is woven, a love story that might have been lost forever is exposed, and a destiny that has been waiting in the shadows for centuries is fulfilled.

Rich in emotion and poignant in its telling, Lacewood is an unforgettable story about love and loss, roots and belonging…and spirits of the past that refuse to be quieted.

A haunting story from award-winning author Jessica James that connects the past with the present—and the present with eternity.

Perfectly Proper Press

Genre: Historical Romance

 

 

An Uncommon Beauty…

Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it’s caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland—a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the Duke’s clutches, she’s going to need a little help.

An Unlikely Hero…

Captain Arthur Heywood’s days of heroism are long past. Grievously injured in the Peninsular War, he can no longer walk unaided, let alone shoot a pistol. What use can he possibly be to a damsel in distress? He has nothing left to offer except his good name.

Can a marriage of convenience save Philly from the vengeful duke? Or will life with Arthur put her—and her heart—in more danger than ever?

Release Day Book Blast: The Lost History Of Dreams by Kris Waldherr @kriswaldherr #TheLostHistoryofDreams via @hfvtb #HFVBTBlogTours

Posted on Updated on

Hello everyone! Today I have the great pleasure to be helping celebrate the release of The Lost History Of Dreams by Kris Waldherr, this book looks absolutely enthralling and I cannot wait to read it – it’s definitely on my next to buy list – so without any ado, take a look and lets wish Kris a very Happy Publication Day!!

In this captivating debut novel in the gothic tradition of Wuthering Heights and The Thirteenth Tale, a post-mortem photographer unearths dark secrets of the past that may hold the key to his future.

When famed Byronesque poet Hugh de Bonne is discovered dead in his bath one morning in 1850, the task of burying his body falls to his estranged cousin, historian turned postmortem photographer Robert Highstead. De Bonne’s will instructs that he should be buried in an unusual chapel, a stained glass folly set on the Shropshire moors, built to house the remains of his beloved wife and muse, Ada. It has since been locked to all outsiders—especially the rabid, cultlike fans of de Bonne’s final book, The Lost History of Dreams. Only Ada’s grief-stricken niece, Isabelle, holds the key—but she refuses to open the glass chapel unless Robert agrees to her bargain: Before he can lay Hugh to rest, Robert must record the real story behind her aunt’s ill-fated marriage over the course of five nights.

Sweeping and darkly atmospheric, THE LOST HISTORY OF DREAMS is a Gothic mystery about love and loss that blurs the line between past and present, truth and fiction, and ultimately, life and death. And remember, all love stories are ghost stories in disguise.

The Lost History of Dreams by Kris Waldherr

Publication Date: April 9, 2019
Atria Books
Hardcover & eBook; 320 Pages

Genre: Historical/Gothic/Mystery

A post-mortem photographer unearths dark secrets of the past that may hold the key to his future, in this captivating debut novel in the gothic tradition of Wuthering Heights and The Thirteenth Tale.

All love stories are ghost stories in disguise.

When famed Byronesque poet Hugh de Bonne is discovered dead of a heart attack in his bath one morning, his cousin Robert Highstead, a historian turned post-mortem photographer, is charged with a simple task: transport Hugh’s remains for burial in a chapel. This chapel, a stained glass folly set on the moors of Shropshire, was built by de Bonne sixteen years earlier to house the remains of his beloved wife and muse, Ada. Since then, the chapel has been locked and abandoned, a pilgrimage site for the rabid fans of de Bonne’s last book, The Lost History of Dreams.

However, Ada’s grief-stricken niece refuses to open the glass chapel for Robert unless he agrees to her bargain: before he can lay Hugh to rest, Robert must record Isabelle’s story of Ada and Hugh’s ill-fated marriage over the course of five nights.

As the mystery of Ada and Hugh’s relationship unfolds, so does the secret behind Robert’s own marriage—including that of his fragile wife, Sida, who has not been the same since the tragic accident three years ago, and the origins of his own morbid profession that has him seeing things he shouldn’t—things from beyond the grave.

Kris Waldherr effortlessly spins a sweeping and atmospheric gothic mystery about love and loss that blurs the line between the past and the present, truth and fiction, and ultimately, life and death.

Posted on Updated on

Shakespeare’s Witch by Samantha Grosser

Sam Grosser Books
Format: eBook & Paperback; 358 Pages

Genre: Historical Fiction

 

 

Love, Witchcraft, Sorcery, Madness.

A fortune told …
When Sarah Stone foresees Will Shakespeare’s latest play has opened doors to evil, she begs the playwright to abandon it. But Will refuses, aware the play is one of his best. And so rehearsals for Macbeth begin.

Forbidden desires …
After her vision, Sarah fears for her life – she has never known the shewstone to lie, and she turns to her brother Tom for comfort. A strange darkness seems to haunt the playhouse, and when Tom sets out to seduce John Upton, the boy actor who plays Lady Macbeth, the boy sees the hand of witchcraft in his own forbidden desires for men. Then Sarah weaves a spell to win the love of the new lead actor, and John, terrified for the safety of his soul, begins to make his accusations.

The Spirits have spoken …
As rehearsals continue, Sarah and Tom must struggle to convince John he is mistaken and that his sins are his own – their lives and the fortune of the play are at stake. But the Spirits have spoken – will the fate that Sarah foresaw come to pass or is their destiny their own to decide?

Set against the first production of Macbeth in 1606, Shakespeare’s Witch is a seductive tale of the origins of the curse of the Scottish Play.

Well this is certainly different to anything I have previously read! I was intrigued by the sound of this, the moment I saw it, and it definitely grabbed my attention – at times not exactly for the good, but it is a page-tuner. I am a big fan of darker historical fiction, it really grabs my attention and Shakespeare’s Witch is certainly no different. It is darkly unique and spell-binding. It is one of those unforgettable books which will stay with you long after turning the last page.

What I found fascinating about this was that even now I have mixed feelings about it and that started while reading it. On one hand I found it to be captivating and very original and on the other I was mildly confused, a little taken back especially with one aspect – which I can’t go into due to spoilers as this is a major part of the story – I was a little uncomfortable reading those scenes, but once finished it struck me that even though I didn’t like this certain aspect of the plot it was needed and it made the ending all the more moving.

Set in 1606, William Shakespeare has just written Macbeth and the story is set around that very first showing. Will goes to Sarah to consult the spirits whether this play will be a success or not. But, what she sees terrifies her she sees nothing but evil circulating around this play, she pleads to Will not to go ahead with Macbeth that this play is pure evil and has opened the door to the bad spirits which haunt his dreams. Will is rebuffs her pleas and goes ahead with rehearsals for what we all know will become one of his greatest pieces.

Sarah and her brother Tom dabble in the occult after their mother taught them a bit of witchcraft, which was illegal and as we know from history it was an era full of fear and superstition and any sniff of witchcraft lead to a horrific outcome for those who had the finger pointed at them, they had to endure awful treatment during the witch trials and then were sentenced to death. So, for both Tom and Sarah to be more or less openly dealing with such things can and does place them not just in trouble but in danger. At the same time they are working in the theatre as Macbeth is being rehearsed.

Sarah is living in fear of what she saw and at the same time she is also inexplicably drawn to Nick; one of the actor’s who is to star in Macbeth, but being the confused young women she is she does go about things all wrong to gain his love, which is connected to the part of the story that I found very uncomfortable to read. Without giving too much about the story away, this is certainly eye-opening and it does take the reader off the beaten track of what you think is going to happen, and takes them to another much darker place completely.

Overall it does engage the reader and with the twists to the plot it does keep you guessing and turning the pages. It’s is steeped in swirling, eerie darkness, there is romance, magic and sex, plus a touch of dark, grisly history. Ms Grosser has a real gift at story-telling, her writing is strong and articulate she really draws the reader into her mysterious world. I’ve not read any of Ms Grosser’s work before, so this is a great introduction to her books and I will definitely be reading more from her.

This is one of those books that I would class at Marmite; it is you will either love it or hate it. For readers like myself who do love the darker more unique historicals which has a hint of romance, then you will love it. It may not be for the more puritan historical romance lover’s, but if your willing to give it a go then I do recommend it.

This was a complimentary copy from the author via Historical Fiction Virtual Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review as apart of this blog tour. Thank you Samantha and Amy!

Hello my lovelies, I have the great pleasure to be today’s stop on The Turncoat cover reveal, this cover is glorious and definitely makes me want to run out and grab a copy. So without any more ado, here it is…

The Turncoat by T.J. London

Publication Date: May 23, 2019
eBook & Paperback

Series: The Rebels and Redcoats Saga, Book 3
Genre: Historical Fiction

Spy. Redcoat. Traitor.

After Captain John Carlisle’s dance with death, he’s retreated to the serenity of the Oneida village with his beloved Dellis McKesson, trying to hide from the inevitable truth: war is coming. But when duty calls, and John’s expertise is needed to negotiate a treaty between the Six Nations of the Iroquois and the Crown, he’ll once again be faced with a decision: his King or his conscience.

Many truths that have yet to be revealed, and a deal with the Devil made in desperation, threatens to ruin Dellis and John’s hard-won love. As ghosts of the past resurface, and bitter family rivalry exposes betrayal from those closest to her, Dellis is dragged down a devastating path to the truth of her parents’ murders.

Now, the die is cast as war comes to the Mohawk River Valley in the Summer of 1777. St. Leger and his native allies siege Fort Stanwix. They’re also plotting a secret attack that will force the Rebels and the Oneida to face off against the Crown and their allies, further dividing John’s loyalties, leaving him on the precipice of another decision: Rebel or Redcoat?

Posted on Updated on

Fortress of the Sun
by E.M. Thomas

Publication Date: December 26, 2018
Paperback & eBook; 300 Pages
Rokhish Press

Genre: Historical/Greek & Roman

 

 

Read an Excerpt.

It’s 243 B.C. and Greece is ready for a revolution.

Eighty years have passed since the death of Alexander the Great, the man who first cowed free Hellas into submission. His successors to the Macedonian throne have only tightened their grip in the interim, the present king no exception. Spartan rebellions, opportunistic usurpers, foreign invaders – for nearly five decades, King Antigonus has seen them all and crushed them all. He now stands alone astride Greece; he fears no one.

Aratus of Sicyon plans to change that. With a passion for freedom and hatred for the King that stem from the same childhood tragedy, he takes aim at Macedon when no one else would dare; takes aim at its crown jewel in the south, the linchpin of its control, the very symbol of its domination – Corinth. Hopelessly outfunded, outmanned, and outarmed, he embarks on one of the most audacious and stunning attacks in ancient history, one that would change Greece forever.

Available on Amazon
