Stuart takes us back to the societies of the 20th century, drawing on her own experience of places across Australia, India, East Asia, and the Middle East. 
 
Samarinda Lazenby had had an eventful and exciting career.
The first few years of her life had been spent in a Japanese internment camp, the middle years accompanying her father around the world, and her adult life training as a surgeon. When her father died it was hardly surprising that she accepted a post as Senior Surgical Officer on Random Island in the Pacific.
And almost immediately 'Sami' was flung into a maelstrom of chaotic event. The island, in the grip of a typhoon, became inaccessible by normal transport and Sami – aware of their desperate medical needs – was forced to turn to the handsome but enigmatic Captain James Bruce for help ...

    An obscure Prussian princess is transformed into Catherine the Great, the longest-ruling female leader of Russia    The Prussian-born daughter of a minor princeling, Augusta Fredericka dreams of being a queen. When, one snowy December night in 1743, she’s summoned to Russia to wed Grand Duke Peter Romanov, she believes all her fantasies are about to come true. But the heir to the Russian throne is not the man Augusta expects. Stunted and deformed, her husband-to-be is an impotent half-wit who plays with dolls, hates women, and can’t bear to be touched. Once they wed, obtaining an heir becomes the driving obsession of Peter’s aunt, the scheming, powerful Empress Elizabeth, who hires a handsome nobleman to seduce the virgin grand duchess. It works: Catherine bears a son, Paul, who is taken from her, leaving her isolated and vulnerable.   Catherine finds fulfillment in a succession of lovers, but lives in constant fear for her life. Her most treacherous enemy is her own husband, who plots to have her arrested for treason. Set against the turbulent background of czarist Russia, Evelyn Anthony’s novel weaves a spellbinding tale of passion and ambition and one woman’s rise to power as empress of her adopted country.  Rebel Princess is the 1st book in the Romanov Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    From the “Queen of the American gothics”: In turn-of-the-century New York, a strange inheritance lures a vulnerable governess into a trap (The New York Times).   Camilla King knows little of her family history, having never met her estranged relatives. Her late father wanted it that way. But when she receives a startling invitation from her immeasurably wealthy and ailing grandfather, Orrin Judd, to return to Thunder Heights, the crumbling mansion on the Hudson where her mother died under mysterious circumstances, Camilla complies, partly out of curiosity for the family she never had, and partly because of whispers of an inheritance.   What she finds there is a demanding and unwelcoming tyrant, two wraithlike aunts haunted by an unnamable grief, a cunning idler living off the Judd fortune, and her grandfather’s rigid and suspicious aide. When a series of accidents befall Camilla, she has reason to fear her homecoming may be a carefully designed trap—the same one her own mother fell prey to many years ago.  New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney “is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft” (Barbara Michaels).  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author’s estate.
