Summary

Welcome to Pippington, where motorcars bump down old city lanes, frogs transform into men, and mermaids just might be real. 
Evelyn Havish is through waiting for Henry Kingston to look up from his ledgers and propose. But, when Henry’s brother Jack is transformed into a frog and trapped in a well, Evelyn must join the rescue. Armed with her training as a lady and a solid punch, Evelyn must outwit a scheming heiress, wrestle an octopus, and kiss far more frogs than a girl should be expected to. As she dives deeper into a hidden world of magic, she discovers Jack may not be the one who needs saving. 
The Lady and the Frog is the second book in the Pippington Tales.
Available since: 02/10/2017.

    After her young nephew and two nieces’ parents are drowned in a tragic sailing accident off the coast of Cornwall, the beautiful red-headed Tamara is devastated by their loss and realises almost at once that she is the only person who can look after the three children as she loves them so much.  
    She speaks to the local Solicitor, who tells her that there is no money left in her brother-in-law’s estate and so she has no choice but to take the three children to their uncle, the Duke of Granchester, who lives in splendid isolation in a vast sprawling but intimidating Castle in Gloucestershire. 
    The prospect at once appals Tamara. 
    Firstly because she despises the Duke for the way he had cut off all contact with her sister and brother-in-law as he disapproved of their marriage, thinking that she was an actress when in fact she was a renowned opera singer. 
    Worse still, Tamara has written a somewhat scurrilous novel portraying the Duke as the vile character she believes him to be! And the novel is just about to be published in London!
    Arriving at Granchester Castle in the guise of the children’s Governess, she finds the Duke to be as arrogant, high-handed and annoyingly handsome as her fictional portrayal of him and she hates him even more bitterly. 
    Until a touch of love intervenes and changes everything forever.

    On his return after six years’ fighting with the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars, Colonel Romney Wood, who has just become Lord Heywood, is horrified at the state of the country he left behind, where agricultural labourers are now starving, food shops are bare and Luddites lay waste new agricultural machinery. 
    
     
    Worse still his own estate is almost bankrupt and he has to find something to sell to save it and his loyal staff from penury.
    
     
    He is considerably hampered because his grandfather has legally entailed everything of value onto future generations of Lord Heywoods and so he cannot dispose of virtually anything without the Trustees’ approval, which he knows will not be forthcoming.
    
     
    Scouring Heywood Abbey, his country home, for possible items to sell, he is astonished when he stumbles across something he is soon to prize beyond price – a beautiful, fawn-like young girl with deep blue eyes in a white diaphanous nightgown. 
    
     
    She is an interloper and a runaway, hiding from her wicked uncle, who is forcing her into marriage with a man she despises. 
    
     
    Her name is Lalita. But more than that she will not tell Lord Heywood. 
    
     
    Yet slowly she reveals more of herself to him – and with each revelation the bond between them grows. 
    
     
    And in spite of himself Lord Heywood is falling in love. They are two people with nothing left to lose and maybe only love to win.

    With her hallmark “power, passion, tragedy, and triumph,” the award-winning author tells the story of love between a young missionary and a Sioux brave (RT Book Reviews).   The year is 1892.

Yet, from the moment she clashes with Black Hawk, the fiercely proud man of the Sioux, she knows he’s everything she could ever want—and everything she can never have.   Living in the hills with his young son, Black Hawk reveres the ways of his people and is determined to preserve Sioux traditions. But when he meets Evelyn, a woman from the society he abhors, not even his own prejudices can smother the flame of desire that burns for her.   Yet in the midst of their forbidden romance is a storm of treachery and hate that threatens to destroy their love—and their lives . . .

    	When a vicious storm strikes, Salrina takes shelter in the stables of a Posting inn and there she overhears a conversation that will change her life. 
    	An English aristocrat is scheming with a sinister Frenchman to assassinate the Prince Regent at one of his extravagant parties at Carlton House in London!
