Summary

In two world wars, intelligence and counterintelligence, prejudice, and self-sacrifice collide across two generations 
 
In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same--until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie's inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling's injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the SS officer he's tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own. 
 
Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, never expecting to fall in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper's daughter. But when war breaks out in Europe, their relationship is put in jeopardy and may not survive what lies ahead for them. 
 
As the ripples from the Great War rock Evie and Sterling's lives in World War II, it seems yesterday's tides may sweep them all into danger again today. 
 
"Yesterday's Tides has delicious romance, fascinating history, heart-pounding mystery, and wrenching family drama. . . . Please don't miss this novel."--SARAH SUNDIN, bestselling and award-winning author of The Sound of Light and Until Leaves Fall in Paris 
 
"Yesterday's Tides triumphs with raw and real emotion, pulse-pounding action, and romance that pays tribute to the legacy of yesterday to anchor the path of our tomorrows."--KRISTY CAMBRON, Christy Award-winning author of The Paris Dressmaker

    The Duke of Rockcliffe returns home to England from the British Army of Occupation which after the defeat of Napoleon in 1815 is located at Cambrai.
    	He had left England seven years ago when he was merely a young Lieutenant who intended to spend his life in the Army.
    	Owing to the death of several Heir Presumptives to the Dukedom, he finds himself unexpectedly and to his great surprise the new Duke.
    	He also discovers that he has a Ward called Nelita, the daughter of General Sir Edward Sheldon who had been his Commander.  Sir Edward was killed by a stray cannon ball at the Battle of Waterloo.
    	General Sheldon made the Duke Nelita's Guardian because she has inherited her mother's enormous fortune and he was afraid of fortune-hunters.
    	The Duke first heard about the stunningly beautiful and lively Nelita when he read in The Morning Post a description of how, in answer to a challenge, she walked along the parapet of a house in Belgrave Square and was watched by a large crowd who were encouraging her.
    	He is determined that this sort of behaviour should not continue and he then finds that she has been staying with a fast member of Society called Lady Marshbanks, who is not considered to be a suitable chaperone for Nelita.
    	Her next escapade is to show him that she is not a dull and conventional debutante.
    	She dresses up, painted and disguised, as a Society beauty and is clever enough to deceive two of the Duke's friends who are dining with him.
    	He takes her to the Ascot races where they have luncheon with the Prince Regent and the Duke guesses that she has another prank in her mind that he is resolved to stop before it goes too far.
    	Nelita, however, finds that a particularly unpleasant fortune-hunter, Sir James Jensen, is trying to blackmail her best friend in London.
    	She manages to outwit Sir James, but he plans a terrible revenge for Nelita.
    	She is terrified at his dastardly plot and has no idea how she can escape from him.
    	How eventually she is saved by the Duke and how she finds serene happiness is told in this exciting and unusual story by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    Nolita is dismayed to find that young Bettine is not only a Lady and heiress to her American grandfather’s vast fortune but also a spoilt little madam who is almost uncontrollable. 
     
    Miraculously, Nolita’s love of horses and gentle humble approach wins over her pupil, to the astonishment of the Marquis, who regards Nolita with new respect and admiration. 
     
    But just as Nolita has taken Bettine to her heart and lost her own to the handsome Marquis, a ruthless American gang kidnaps her and Bettine, threatening to kill them unless they receive a ransom of one million dollars. 
     
    Now all hope of life – and of love – seems lost as Nolita sends out little white doves of prayer to the one man who can save them from a dreadful fate.

    A young queen is torn between her heart’s desire and the fate of her kingdom in this “first-rate” fantasy from a New York Times–bestselling author (Library Journal). On his deathbed, the four-hundred-year-old emperor of Atlantis has reason to worry. Signar, the savage ruler of a powerful outlying state, is scheming to seize control of the empire, and not even its advanced technology can save it. But something else can . . .   From the frozen north country of Althrustri, Signar will halt his invasion if he can take the emperor’s daughter, the beautiful Empress Salustra, as his bride. Such a marriage contradicts the deepest feelings of Salustra’s heart, the secret wisdom of her lineage, and her sacred trust as Atlantis’s queen. But the emperor has a plan: Salustra will seduce Signar and then sentence him to death.   In spite of every effort to harden her heart, Salustra soon finds herself falling in love with the lustful barbarian. Her loyalties gravely divided, the empress must make a decision that will change the course of history.   Written by author Taylor Caldwell when she was a young girl and revised and published decades later, The Romance of Atlantis transforms the legend of a lost kingdom into an “extraordinary” tale of passion and intrigue (TheColumbus Dispatch).
