Saving Eden 2. Chapters 1 to 15. More Ecology Romance.
"Is it a bird… or a plane… or another labour pain?"
Since falling hook, line and sinker for globetrotting English ecologist, James, Eden and her son Jamie's worlds have changed for the better.
Then, life changed even more after they left the past behind, and moved from Kentucky to England.
It was time to distance themselves from the wreckage and ghosts of their past, for once and for all.
A new life, with a new love.
And low and behold, it worked!
At least it seemed so?
Until the skeletons holding on to them from the past came back!
Rehabilitated and reborn.
As if dealing with unemployment, and her joyous, and unexpected pregnancy wasn't enough to cope with?
Now, their universe is about to be turned upside down for a second time.
Eden and Jamie will soon have more than heartache on their minds.
The full-time loser, and part-time father, is on the loose again.
And are the rumours true?
Has he found God?
Or is it a just another faceless ploy to get what he wants?
And after all this time… what does he want?
Redemption or reconciliation?
Or retaliation and revenge?
Come and find out, in the second book of the Saving Eden Trilogy.
Accustomed to spending fortunes on fast women and high living, Lord Wynchingham is horrified to lose one hundred thousand pounds in a card game and then finds that he is almost bankrupt. So when Tina Croome, his beautiful orphaned Ward, throws herself on his mercy he says that there is nothing he can do. Unless, she suggests, he uses the last of his credit to launch her into London Society and quickly attract a rich husband, using her large dowry to save her unfortunate Guardian from disgrace and the debtors' prison. Eager suitors flock to the lovely young debutante, Tina, like bees to a honeypot, including Lord Wynchingham's craven dissolute cousin Claude and the unpleasant but very wealthy Lord Welton, who Tina takes an instant dislike to. With great reluctance, she agrees to marry him, but only to save Lord Wynchingham from a dreadful fate. The more she comes to despise her fiancé, the deeper she falls in love with Lord Wychingham. But it is too late to prevent her imminent Wedding to Lord Welton and surely her love is doomed – until the crazed cousin Claude's wicked and murderous kidnap plot intervenes to change her life, and love, for ever.KeywordsThe Prince of Wales, Newmarket, Piccadilly, Berkeley Square, Fleet Prison, the duns, the Beau Monde
If any place on God's earth was designed to help one heal, it is Meadowland. Surely here, at her brother-in-law's Kentucky farm, Rose and her daughters can recover from the events of the recent past--the loss of her husband during the 1918 influenza epidemic, her struggle with tuberculosis that required a stay at a sanatorium, and her girls' experience in an orphanage during her illness. At Meadowland, hope blooms as their past troubles become rich soil in which their faith can grow.
Dirk Meadows may have opened his home to his late brother's widow and her girls, but he keeps his heart tightly closed. The roots of his pain run deep, and the evidence of it is written across his face. Badly scarred by a fire and abandoned by the woman he loved, Dirk fiercely guards his heart from being hurt again. But it may be that his visitors will bring light back into his world and unlock the secret to true healing.
Bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart explores the tender places within the human heart in this character-driven story of trusting God to turn our burdens into something beautiful.
INTRIGUE. TENSION. LOVE AFFAIRS:

To sit at the Captain's Table on a big liner is an honour eagerly sought after, and often especially so, when the Captain is handsome, distinguished, and young for so important a command.
But for Catherine Duncan the privilege was a source of alarm, for Robert Blair was the brother of her dead fiancé, and he believed her to be morally responsible for Hugh's death.
How could she endure his thundercloud presence, day after day, on the long voyage to China?
The key to his past……lies with the enemy sharing his bed!Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Rory Lochmore had expected to wage battle, to claim land and finally secure his standing within his clan… Instead he won a wife. A McCrieff wife. Their convenient marriage could unite the two long-feuding clans forever. But can a political alliance give way to a passion strong enough to stand the secrets of the past?
After an evening dinner with renowned French ballet dancer and beauty, Nicole de Prêt, handsome young buck about town, the Marquis of Sarne, is stirred from a deep sleep to realise that he has been drugged and then rendered unconscious.
And he is in a strange bed in a strange house somewhere in London.
Far worse though is the revelation that in his stupor someone has married him to some young servant girl he does not even know by his bitter enemy, Lord Kirkhampton.
To avoid the likely scandal and humiliation that his predicament will bring him, he decides to take his 'bride' to his house in Grosvenor Square and there to arrange a divorce as best he can.
But soon he realises that this girl was not a willing participant in Lord Kirkhampton's deceitful trick nor is she the plain servant girl he had assumed at first.
In fact Romana Wardell is startlingly beautiful and attractive, remarkably intelligent and every bit as appalled by their situation as he is.
Then the more that the reluctant newlyweds become acquainted, the less the urgency they feel to put this forced 'marriage' to an early end.
Perhaps after all she has the makings of a Marchioness of Sarne!
