The Shadows of Versailles

(An Affair of the Poisons Book One)

By Cathie Dunn


Dazzled by Versailles. Broken by tragedy. Consumed by revenge.


When Fleur de La Fontaine attends the court of King Louis XIV for the first time, she is soon besotted with handsome courtier, Philippe de Mortain. She dreams of married life away from her uncaring mother, but Philippe keeps a secret from her.


Nine months later, after the boy she has given birth to in a convent is whisked away, she flees to Paris where she mends gowns in the brothel of Madame Claudette, a woman who helps ‘fallen’ girls back on their feet.


Jacques de Montagnac investigates a spate of abducted children when his path crosses Fleur’s. He searches for her son, but the trail leads to a dead end – and a dreadful realisation.


Her boy’s suspected fate too much to bear, Fleur decides to avenge him. She visits the famous midwife, La Voisin, but it’s not the woman’s skills in childbirth that Fleur seeks.


La Voisin dabbles in poisons.


Will Fleur see her plan through? Or can she save herself from a tragic fate?


Delve into The Shadows of Versailles and enter the sinister world of potions, poisoners and black masses during the Affairs of the Poisons, a real event that stunned the court of the Sun King!

Discerning Grace

(Book One of The White Sails Series)

By Emma Lombard


About the Book

As the first full-length novel in The White Sails Series, DISCERNING GRACE captures the spirit of an independent woman whose feminine lens blows the ordered patriarchal decks of a 19th century tall ship to smithereens.

Wilful Grace Baxter, will not marry old Lord Silverton with his salivary incontinence and dead-mouse stink. Discovering she is a pawn in an arrangement between slobbery Silverton and her calculating father, Grace is devastated when Silverton reveals his true callous nature.

Refusing this fate, Grace resolves to stow away. Heading to the docks, disguised as a lad to ease her escape, she encounters smooth-talking naval recruiter, Gilly, who lures her aboard HMS Discerning with promises of freedom and exploration in South America.

When Grace's big mouth lands her bare-bottomed over a cannon for insubordination, her identity is exposed. The captain wants her back in London but his orders, to chart the icy archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, forbid it. Lieutenant Seamus Fitzwilliam gallantly offers to take Grace off the fretting captain's hands by placing her under his protection.

Grace must now win over the crew she betrayed with her secret, while managing her feelings towards her taciturn protector, whose obstinate chivalry stifles her new-found independence. But when Grace disregards Lieutenant Fitzwilliam's warnings about the dangers of the unexplored archipelago, it costs a friend his life and she realises she is not as free as she believes.

Highland Hero
Cynthia Breeding
(Children of the Mist, #2)
Published by: Entangled: Amara
Publication date: June 14th 2021
Genres: Adult, Historical Romance

When Juliana Caldwell is abducted from a MacGregor gathering to become the bride of Neal Cameron, time is of the essence to find her. Rory MacGregor is the best tracker the clan has and is ordered to bring her back, even though the two of them have never agreed on anything including that the sky is blue and the grass green.

He certainly would not be Juliana’s first choice of a hero, but at the moment she isn’t going to quibble about who her rescuer is. She’ll do anything to escape, even pretending to be hand-fasted to Rory in order to get the Cameron laird to release her. That plan soon goes awry, and she and Rory are pursued by a determined Neal and they take a circuitous route home, only to be caught in a blizzard that closes the mountain pass they need to take.

They are stranded at Invergarry Castle which poses its own problems since the MacDonnells are friends of the MacGregors and the pseudo-hand-fasting suddenly becomes real. Rory begins to realize that the idea rather appeals to him, but breaking the news to Juliana will be another matter.

Description Birth of a Unicorn by Heather Wilde

Birth of a Unicorn: Six Basic Steps to Success is the story of what it takes to found a billion-dollar company -- also known as a unicorn. It's told from the perspective of a founding employee, and shows the years and years of emotional strain, stress and dedication that building a successful company takes -- and a framework to follow if you'd like to try it yourself. In this book, you'll find the true story behind one of Silicon Valley's famous companies on its rise to the top. Peek behind the curtain as you see the highs and lows from an insider perspective, on the roller coaster that is the start-up life. What emerges is a lasting friendship, a billion-dollar company, and an understandable framework of success for you to replicate.

Excerpt Birth of a Unicorn by Heather Wilde

In Birth of a Unicorn, Heather Wilde covers the many facets of building a business – and how ideas can come from anywhere in your life. Here is just one of those many examples. Like all great CEOs, Phil believed that if someone gives you a great idea, you should figure out a way to adapt it for your use. He always insisted that you give that person credit for their initial idea, but what you do with it from there is all you. One of Phil’s oldest friends was a naval submarine captain, and he spoke about him fondly and often—especially during our company All- Hands meetings. 
On one occasion, he told us how they had an “Official Training Program” in the Navy, where seamen who are in the officer accession process could silently observe the essential meetings with senior officers on the ship to learn as much as they could before being promoted. He thought this idea was perfect for Evernote, especially as one of our core values was transparency. In practice, what it meant was that any employee would be allowed to join any open calendar meeting, up to two per month, outside their department. 
The theory was that it would help them to learn what was going on elsewhere in the company—or at least what questions to ask to find out. In practice, it was not exactly how he had envisioned it. While it was true that everyone’s meetings were visible, and for the most part, people were willing to add you to a meeting invite if you asked, no one had time to join more meetings than they already had on their schedule. 
The only people who had the opportunity to attend the meetings were interns, and since they were temporary employees, their attendance would not be the best use of their resources. Phil decided to scrap that program and try again—after all, being adaptable is a crucial tenet of entrepreneurship. The next version was called “Evernote University.” 
This time, instead of making people sit in other meetings that they didn’t have time for and had no business sense to be in, he asked our team to come up with a list of hobbies and skills they’d be interested in learning more about off-hours. On the list were things like Flight Training, Butchery, Foraging, and Brewing. 
Then we got some volunteers from the office for people who wanted to teach classes, and they received a supply budget. For classes that had no “volunteacher,” Evernote would give you a specific dollar credit for a similar course elsewhere. This program was much more successful, as people were more willing to have fun with each other, learning new, non-work skills than do more work. This success led to other non-traditional benefits added to the office. 
When Phil heard that people were complaining about how long it was taking them to clean on the weekends, he added a housecleaning service. When people started getting stress headaches, he brought in-office mas- sages once a week. 
We already had an onsite company gym available 24/7 and a variety of snacks. When people started complaining about weight gain, we brought in a chef to cater healthy breakfast and lunch meals. Over the years, we added an unlimited vacation policy and an additional bonus once you proved you had taken one, the option for a metro card or electric car subsidy, technology benefits, educational grants, and many other perks—but it all started with a submarine.

Review Birth of a Unicorn by Heather Wilde

Guest Review by
Sol Heather Wilde's memoir/self-help guide, 'Birth of a Unicorn: Six Basic Steps to Success,' is a book that brought me in from the first page and wouldn't let me put it down. Wilde was one of the first employees of the app Evernote, a successful start-up that now has over 200 million users worldwide. 
It's hard to quantify success, especially in the tech start-up world, but Wilde has been on the team with many companies that were considered, 'Unicorns' or, companies that made a billion dollars. Of course, that isn't to say that she hasn't experienced setbacks of her own. 
Between marriage problems, mental health issues and having to start over at different places multiple times, Wilde has dealt with her fair share of misfortunes. But her strong sense of purpose throughout all of these difficulties gave the memoir portion of this book heart and impact that make it relatable. I really appreciated the tone of Wilde's writing. She gives advice very freely, but gently, in a way that doesn't make you feel like she is talking down to you (as so many other advice books do). 
This is a woman who has been through a lot, but managed to find success through all of it and her journey is both remarkable and an inspiration for everyone who is interested in working in the tech industry. I know I will be thinking of this book for a long time to come and retaking the assessment in the back that is meant to help you figure out what matters the most to you in your life and how to make sure that others things don't take precedence over those things. 
 I can recommend this book highly and I think everyone, regardless of their interest in the tech world, would enjoy reading it.

Under the Light of the Italian Moon

By Jennifer Anton


A promise keeps them apart until WW2 threatens to destroy their love forever

Fonzaso Italy, between two wars

Nina Argenta doesn’t want the traditional life of a rural Italian woman. The daughter of a strong-willed midwife, she is determined to define her own destiny. But when her brother emigrates to America, she promises her mother to never leave.

When childhood friend Pietro Pante briefly returns to their mountain town, passion between them ignites while Mussolini forces political tensions to rise. Just as their romance deepens, Pietro must leave again for work in the coal mines of America. Nina is torn between joining him and her commitment to Italy and her mother.

As Mussolini’s fascists throw the country into chaos and Hitler’s Nazis terrorise their town, each day becomes a struggle to survive greater atrocities. A future with Pietro seems impossible when they lose contact and Nina’s dreams of a life together are threatened by Nazi occupation and an enemy she must face alone…

A gripping historical fiction novel, based on a true story and heartbreaking real events.

Spanning over two decades, Under the Light of the Italian Moon is an epic, emotional and triumphant tale of one woman’s incredible resilience during the rise of fascism and Italy’s collapse into WWII.

Synopsis:

Condition Black by Stu Jones & Gareth Worthington

EVAN WEYLAND, a brilliant research scientist tasked with developing new technologies to fight cancer, sees the world differently through the lens of Autism Spectrum Disorder. His guiding light is his wife, Marie—a globally recognized war correspondent. When she returns home from Syria deathly ill with an unknown disease, Evan believes his research may be the key to unlocking the cure. However, when his superiors refuse his request for help, Evan’s single-minded love for Marie drives him to take matters into his own hands—a decision with far greater consequences than he could possibly fathom.

BILLY VICK, a Captain in the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, is a combat veteran unable to leave the horrors of war behind. Only the love of his family and a sense of absolute justice keeps him grounded. When Billy’s unit becomes aware of a US-sanctioned airstrike on a civilian settlement in Syria and an eye-witness reporter comatose with an unknown illness, he fears the worst. An unethical military project thought mothballed has resurfaced, and a civilian, Evan Weyland, may be about to inadvertently unleash it upon the world. It’s a mistake that could cost the lives of millions.

Pitted against each other in a game of chess-like deception and intrigue, with time running out, both men must come to terms with the magnitude of what’s at stake—and what each is willing to sacrifice to win.

Praise for Condition Black:

"This solid sci-fi thriller [is] a well-balanced thrill ride. Well-shaded characters keep the pages turning. Fans of high-tech medical and military thrillers should check this out." ~ Publishers Weekly.

Like Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, this book is revolutionary. Incredible." ~ Jonas Saul, author of the best-selling Sarah Roberts series.

"Condition Black provides such an exceptional read. It's highly recommended for fans of technothrillers who want a firm marriage between psychological depth and unpredictable action, all grounded by ethical concerns that challenge each character to reach beyond his skill set and comfort zone." ~ Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review.

Read an excerpt:

Through the lens of her SLR, Marie Wayland couldn’t pry her gaze from the morbid scene as it unfolded some two hundred feet away. Another twist of the objective and the image in her ultralight mirrorless camera became crystal clear, even in the fading evening light of the Syrian sun: a man, his hands bound secure with coarse rope, sucking with erratic breaths at the cloth bag over his head. The fabric molded to the shape of his quivering lips and stuck there for an instant before being blown out again. He cried out as two masked assailants forced him to his knees. A whimper emerged from beneath his hood, followed by a muffled plea for mercy. Unwavering, the men stood in a line behind the captive, their AK-47 rifles pointed to the sky. Above them all, a black flag, inset with white Arabic script, fluttered like a pirate banner in the desert wind.

A young man carrying a beat-up camcorder scurried onto the scene and set up his tripod. He fiddled with his equipment, then gave a thumbs up. One of the soldiers stepped forward and pulled a curved blade from his belt. He called out and pointed to the camera, stabbing the air with the long knife. For a moment, he seemed to look right at Marie. Her heart faltered and the hot prickle of perspiration dampened her forehead.

Marie lowered her camera and eased further into a small depression in the side of the hill, perfect for both observation and concealment. “Don’t be tree cancer,” she whispered to herself. A strange phrase, but one that had proved invaluable during her long and storied career as a war correspondent. A Marine Corps scout sniper had offered her this golden nugget of advice during a stint in Afghanistan. Master of short-range reconnaissance, he’d spotted her crouched in a ball, peering out from behind a twisted stone pine tree. After approaching undetected, he’d whispered in her ear: Don’t be tree cancer. Marie had nearly jumped out of her skin. She later discovered the phrase referred to an observer drawing attention to themselves by standing out from the world around them.

The voice of the knife-wielding man rose in pitch. Marie shuffled for a better view and raised her camera once again.

The knifeman jerked the hood from the captive’s head.

A chill crawled down Marie’s spine.

Glen Bertrum, the American relief worker kidnapped three months ago from the outskirts of Aleppo, shifted on his knees. With a brutal shove from his captors, the terrified relief worker flopped to his side, squirming. The knifeman descended on Glen, then sawed at his relief worker’s neck with the blade. Blood sprayed against the sand. Glen screamed for what seemed an eternity, the sound morphing into a horrible sucking wheeze.

His gore-drenched knife dripping, the murderer yanked Glen’s head free and held it aloft.

The men shouted in victory, thrusting their weapons into the air.

“Shit,” Marie said, lowering the camera.

The cruelty and barbarism of humankind knew no end, and these zealots had a way of making it even uglier, spreading their jihad across the globe like a pestilence. Without raising the SLR again, she watched the terrorists conclude the recording and march away, leaving Glen’s decapitated body to rot.

Marie’s stomach knotted, and she tried to swallow away the tingle of nausea in her throat. This isn’t why you’re here, she thought. A beheaded aid worker wasn’t news, even if she had met the man before. Such things hadn’t been news for a long time. The war had escalated, far beyond Syria and the Middle East, beyond single hostages and beheadings. Terrorist cells were now a pandemic, spread across the globe, and embedded in every country. There was no central faction anymore. No IS or al-Qaeda, or Allah’s Blade. The war against the west was now an idea, a disease infesting the world. Anyone, anywhere could be an enemy—the core vision metastasizing, traveling to every corner of the Earth and there propagating.

Major cities now operated under war-time policy; curfews and rationing to prevent too many people congregating in any one place, such as a supermarket or a major sporting event. Aerial surveillance and street-level military patrols did their best to keep people safe, but a cage was a cage. In some ways, Marie felt free out in the world, even if it was in the enemy’s backyard. Yet while hate for terrorists was justified, as in all wars the enemy wasn’t the only one capable of terrible things. So too were the allied forces—the people who stood against terror and extremism—and that was why she was in Syria.

The little jaunt Marie had undertaken was unofficial. Her boss would kill her if he knew she’d conducted this op. After flying into Istanbul and crossing the border south of Daruca, she’d spent the better part of the past three days moving from checkpoint to checkpoint, working her way along Highway 7 through northeastern Syria. With dark features and perfect Arabic, Marie hid with ease among the local population.

Marie pulled a tablet from her backpack and keyed up the map she’d gotten from her contact. The coordinates were correct. A tiny civilian village in Northeastern Syria. This ramshackle settlement was little more than a speck on the map, and from what she was told by her contact, this place was of zero military significance. No base, no known weapons caches, no landing strips. The small cell of terrorists she’d just found was likely that: a small cell. Little more than a coincidence, and by no means justification for this village to be firebombed back to the stone age.

Unless they’d found something of significance.
