When you buy this ebook set, you get the first and last books in the series FREE!

This set contains:

The Sekhmet Bed: Book 1 Thirteen-year-old Ahmose is given as Great Royal Wife to the new king, to legitimize his rule. But her elder sister Mutnofret has been raised to expect the privileged station. As Ahmose fights the currents of Egypt’s politics and Mutnofret’s vengeful anger, her youth and inexperience carry her beyond her depth and into the realm of sacrilege. To right her wrongs and save Egypt from the gods’ wrath, Ahmose must face her most visceral fear: bearing an heir. But the gods of Egypt are exacting, and even her sacrifice may not be enough to restore the Two Lands to safety.

With more than 200 five-star reviews, The Sekhmet Bed is a new favorite among fans of ancient historical fiction!

But when the powerful men of Egypt plot to replace her, she must decide whether to surrender her birthright to a man, or take for herself the throne of the Pharaoh.

Sovereign of Stars: Book 3 Never in Egypt’s long history has a woman reigned as king. As Hatshepsut wrestles with foreign enemies and domestic politics, her heart grows ever more troubled, for her daughter Neferure is haunted by a brutal and demanding god. Hatshepsut’s fight to retain her hold on power, peace, and Neferure will carry her on an incomparable journey to the legendary kingdom of Punt. There, in the god’s own valley, she must confront the bleakness of fate and the terrible frailty of eternity.

The Bull of Min: Book 4 Conspiracy and treason simmer in the Two Lands. When an unexpected challenger to the succession arises, the royal family must face impossible choices. To protect what she most loves, the young queen Meryet will match wits against a demon from the past. Hatshepsut stands on the brink of the ultimate sacrifice. And Thutmose, torn between throne and family, must commit an unthinkable act against Hatshepsut…or allow Egypt to fall into the hands of an unpredictable killer.

by JJ Toner

Three WW2 spy thrillers.

THE BLACK ORCHESTRA follows the progress of Kurt Müller from naïve dutiful Abwehr signalman to committed opponent of the Nazis.

THE WINGS OF THE EAGLE tells the story of Kurt’s first mission for British Intelligence. Accompanied by a young man named Pilgrim, he is parachuted behind enemy lines in search of a missing agent, Erika Cleasby. Kurt and Pilgrim rescue Erika and all three become involved in a deadly race to prevent the Nazis from developing the first atomic bomb.

In A POSTCARD FROM HAMBURG, Kurt is working for British Intelligence in London when his lover, Gudrun, is abducted by the SS. He must find his way to northern Germany where she is being held. Erika, meanwhile, pursues her own secret mission in Occupied France. The two stories merge in a dramatic climax that reveals the dirty tactics of Total War.

Cilmeri coverThe After Cilmeri Boxed Set

by Sarah Woodbury

This bundle includes the first four books in the After Cilmeri series: Daughter of Time (prequel), Footsteps in Time (book 1), Winds of Time (1.5 novella), and Prince of Time (book 2).

Daughter of Time: Llywelyn and Meg, a medieval man with an uncertain destiny and a modern woman with a troubled past. Only by working together can they navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales-and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Footsteps in Time: In December of 1282, English soldiers ambushed and murdered Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the Prince of Wales. His death marked the end of Wales as an independent nation and the beginning of over seven hundred years under the English boot.

Footsteps in Time is the story of what might have happened had Llywelyn lived.

And what happens to the two teenagers who save him.

Winds of Time: No travel is simple for Meg, not even a commuter flight, and especially not when she finds herself in the Middle Ages again instead of in a plane crash on a mountain side in Oregon. Meg will need every last bit of maturity she gained in her years in the modern world to survive even a day in this one.

Prince of Time: David and his man-at-arms, Ieuan, find themselves alone and on the run from a company of English soldiers who’ve sworn vengeance for the recent death of their king. Meanwhile, Llywelyn lays on his deathbed from a traitor’s arrow. And once again, it is David and Anna, and all they represent, that holds the key to the survival of Wales.

GG Boxed SetThe Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mysteries Boxed Set

by Sarah Woodbury

This boxed set contains the first four books (three novels and a novella) in the Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mysteries.

The Good Knight: An enthralling story, sympathetic characters and a visit to another time, another culture. What more can you ask of an author? — Medieval Mysteries

Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales…

The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride’s brother tasks his two best detectives—Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard—with bringing the killer to justice.

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

The Uninvited Guest: It is the winter of 1143 and all is not well in the court of Owain, King of north Wales. His future in-laws are untrustworthy, the Norman lords on his eastern border are restless, and among his wedding guests lurks a cold-blooded killer. Gareth and Gwen have marriage plans of their own, but their love will have to wait while the pair race to separate truth from lies, friends from foes, and unravel the mystery before King Owain—and his new bride—fall victim to their uninvited guest.

The Bard’s Daughter (a 22,000 word prequel novella to the Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mysteries):

As a bard’s daughter, Gwen has spent her life traveling from castle to castle and village to village with her family, following the music. In the winter of 1141, Gwen’s family is contracted to provide the entertainment for the coming-of-age celebration of a lord’s son. But before the celebration can begin, Gwen’s father is found over the body of his friend, with a harp string as the murder weapon and blood on his hands.

With the lord of the castle uninterested in finding the true killer, it is up to Gwen to clear her father’s name before her father’s music is silenced … forever.

The Fourth Horseman: May 1144. Newly wedded, Gareth and Gwen travel across the border into England on a diplomatic mission with Prince Hywel of Wales. Within moments of their arrival, however, the mission goes awry and a murder case drops (literally) at their feet. Hindered at every turn by a climate of civil war and constantly shifting political alliances, Gareth and Gwen race to solve the murder and expose a plot that threatens not only their lives, but the life of the future King of England himself.

Murder, intrigue, and treachery take center stage in The Fourth Horseman, the third Gareth & Gwen medieval mystery.
