I was in Paris the day the French Army was mobilized. In 1914, while visiting her friend Madeleine, Lady Elspeth Douglas' life is thrown into chaos when war breaks out and the Germans quickly overrun Belgium, threatening France. Having just agreed to marry Alain, Madeleine's dashing brother, Lady Elspeth watches him leave to join his unit, and then she sets out for England, only to find herself trapped on the French coast. Caught amid a sea of stranded travelers, terrified refugees, and wounded men overflowing the port of Calais, the restless Elspeth - daughter of a Highland aristocrat whose distinguished family can trace its roots back to the court of Mary, Queen of Scots - decides to make herself useful, carrying water to weary soldiers near the Front. It is an act of charity that almost gets her killed when enemy shells begin to explode around her. To her rescue comes Captain Peter Gilchrist, who pulls her away from the battle and leads her to safety. But before they can properly say good-bye, Elspeth and Peter are separated. Back in London, surrounded by familiar comforts, Elspeth is haunted by the horrors she witnessed in France. She also cannot forget the gallant Peter Gilchrist, even though she has promised herself to Alain. Transformed by her experience, Elspeth goes to London and enrolls in a nursing course, where she meets a fellow nurse in training, Bess Crawford. It is a daring move, made without the consent of Elspeth's guardian, her cousin Kenneth, a high-handed man with rigid notions of class and femininity. Yet Elspeth Douglas is a woman with a mind of her own, which-as she herself says-is a blessing and a curse. She is determined to return to the battlefields of France to do her part ...and to find the man she has no right to love, no matter how far Cousin Kenneth may go to stop her. But before she can set things right with Alain, he goes missing and then Peter is gravely wounded. In a world full of terror and uncertainty, can the sweetness of love survive or will Elspeth's troubled heart become another casualty of this terrible war? A poignant, compelling tale brimming with adventure, danger, and love, The Walnut Tree is an enchanting holiday gift and a wonderful companion to Charles Todd's acclaimed Bess Crawford series.

The third book in a new contemporary romance series featuring billionaire brothers from bestselling author Katie Lane!

Grayson Beaumont is the most mysterious of the billionaire brothers. Drawing and painting became his refuge from the pain of his mother's death, and through charcoal and acrylic, he finds peace and a way to connect with women...until his inspiration deserts him and he can no longer create art.

Then Chloe McAlister walks into his studio. As she poses nude for him, she also bares her soul, and it's clear that she isn't who she says she is. Of course, once Grayson has her naked, he thinks of other things to do beside paint her. Then her past catches up to Chloe, and Grayson may have to make the first true commitment of his life.

Ben Benjamin, psi-tech Navigator, and Cara Carlinni, Telepath, can never go home again.

To the Trust and Alphacorp alike, they are wanted criminals. Murder, terrorism, armed insurrection, hijacking, grand theft, and kidnapping are just the top of a long list of charges they ll face if they re caught. So they better not get caught.

These are the people who defied the megacorporations and saved a colony by selling the platinum mining rights and relocating ten thousand colonists somewhere safe, and they re not saying where that is. They take refuge on crimelord-run Crossways Station with the remnants of their team of renegade psi-techs and the "Solar Wind," their state-of-the-art jump-drive ship. They ve made a promise to find a missing space ark with thirty thousand settlers aboard.

But to do that, Ben and Cara have to confront old enemies. Alphacorp and the Trust: separately they are dangerous, united they are unstoppable. They want to silence Ben and Cara more than they want to upstage each other. If they have to get rid of Crossways in order to do it, they can live with that. In fact, this might be the excuse they've been looking fo.
