Aboard The Persephone, the only ship that will take her on as passenger, Moira befriends the handsome and dashing young sea captain Morgan McKenzie with his eye-patch, piercing green eye, and neatly trimmed moustache. Moira’s captivation with Morgan turns to shock when McKenzie reveals he is, in actuality, a woman.

Will Moira be able to return home to marry Henry and live the life her parents have planned for her in London? Or will she find her heart spirited away to the depths of the sea?

The Fog of War by A.L. Lester

OUT NOW! The Fog of War by A.L. Lester

The quiet village of Bradfield should offer Dr Sylvia Marks the refuge she seeks when she returns home from her time in a field hospital in France in 1918. However, she is still haunted by the disappearance of her lover, ambulance driver Anna Masters, two years previously. Settling back in as the village doctor alone in her large family house is more difficult than she realised it would be after the excitement of front-line medicine. Then curious events at a local farm, mysterious lights, and a hallucinating patient’s strange illness make her revisit her assessment of Anna’s death on the battlefield.

Lucille Hall-Bridges is at a loose end now her nursing work is finished. Her Mama and Papa are perfectly happy for her to pursue any or no career or social round; but she felt useful as a nurse and now she really doesn’t know what to do with her life. She hopes going to stay with her friend Sylvia for a while will help her find a way forward. And if that involves staying at Bradfield with Sylvia … then that’s fine with her.

But Sylvia is still focused on finding out what happened to her very good friend Anna three years ago; and the unbelievable events at a local farm over the course of the last year don’t seem to have helped her let that go.

Will the arrival of Lucy in Bradfield be the catalyst that allows both women to put their wartime stresses to rest? Can Sylvia move on from her love affair with Anna and find happiness again with Lucy, or is she still too entwined in the unresolved endings of the past?

NOTE: This story contains mention of domestic violence that happens to side characters off-screen.

The Railwalkers by Ruth Hanson

OUT NOW! The Railwalkers by Ruth Hanson

America, 1887. In a country healing from the horrors of the Civil War, the American West has never been more treacherous. Evil men do as they please, and the often faulty and corrupt justice system does little to nothing to help their victims.

Enter the Railwalkers. Bandits whose only goal is to punish those whom the law has allowed to walk free. Some think they’re an urban legend, meant to scare would-be criminals into submission. Some see them as no different than the murderers they kill, while to others, they are angels of mercy. To Violet Donovan, they are family.

Growing up as the sole heiress to the sizable Donovan estate, Violet’s place of privilege allowed her wild spirit to flourish. Despite the pressures of her sex — find a husband, stay pretty, have children, be subservient, don’t speak out of line — Violet is passionate, loud, stubborn, and untamed. However, at the ripe, marriageable age of twenty, Violet faces the fact that she may have to give in to her mother’s wishes and marry mean, ugly Eustace Carpenter, the only other family name in their little town with comparable worth.

But Violet’s life changes forever when she is saved from an attacker by a strange woman. A woman who, like Violet, doesn’t exactly fit the mold. Unfortunately Violet gets mixed up in a murder charge and has to leave everything she knows for a life on the run from the law. Through divine intervention, she and the woman cross paths again, and Violet comes to know her and her comrades.

They are Mei Wong, Linus Cooper, Sitting Bear, and Rory McNab. The infamous Railwalker gang.

Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

OUT NOW! Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

In this alternate version of history, Amelia and her father, the governor of Delaware, attend a formal dinner at the capitol building with several other local leaders to meet with a delegate for Queen Victoria. The delegate declares the United States must sign a treaty with Britain to reinstate colonial rule, or else there will be war. Amelia runs away to warn the rest of the town, but not before she sees the most beautiful girl on earth. To Amelia’s horror, the beautiful girl is one of the British delegate’s slaves.

Slavery had been abolished in the U.S. two generations ago, after the American Revolution. Automatons do the manual labor now, and all of the melting-pot cultures in the nation live in harmony. But in Britain there are still slaves, and gender-queer people are persecuted. Amelia knows she can’t allow any treaty with Britain to be signed. She sneaks to the harbor of their coastal capital city and discovers not only the delegate’s ship, but an armada on the horizon. She also sees the beautiful girl from before . . . and learns her name is Nadine.

Amelia, her best friend Two-Spirit, and Nadine must organize a rebellion involving slaves, Lenni-Lenape warriors, automatons, and a mechanical horse cavalry. Will they be able to stop the British Imperial Navy? And will Amelia win Nadine’s heart if she can help her become free?

NOTE: The story is continued in the collection, Revolt of the Perfectly Free.
