Book Short Summary:

From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the third in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series. There are not many men who can say they attended their own funeral, but Brady James, Earl of Singleton is no ordinary man. He’s also, happily, not a dead man, which he is certain was the object of the trio of scoundrels who had lately tied him up and tossed him headfirst into the Thames. Of course, there’s also the matter of why he’d been skulking about the bowels of London after midnight, and her name is Regina Bliss. Mysterious, with an ability to lie that would shame the devil himself, Regina is a recent rescue from the London streets, and Brady has taken it into his head to find out where the dratted girl came from… and why she bothers him so. To accomplish his aim, Brady needs to return to London, but certainly not as himself (that would be awkward), and he needs the irritating Miss Bliss to come with him. What to do? Why, he could pretend to be his own heir — a totally worthless, chuckleheaded moron of a dandy he’d rather die (again) to keep from the earldom. It could work. It should work. If only he could get past his attraction for Miss Bliss as she, horror of horrors, teaches him how to play the fop. **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels (just copy and paste into your browser)**

Book Short Summary:

Although people may not realize it, the modern Christmas book market carries on a Victorian legacy. An explosion of Christmas print matter reinvigorated and regularized the holiday during the mid-Victorian period, infusing Christmas with emotionally-charged expectations of reading. Tara Moore elucidates the evolution of Christmas publishing trends that dictated authors writing schedules and reflected gift-giving rituals. As Victorian shopping customs evolved, publishers satisfied consumers with a range of holiday print matter, including novels, ghost stories, periodicals, children s books, and poetry. Ultimately, Victorian Christmas in Print analyzes how the revitalized holiday and the flurry of texts supporting it contributed to English national identity.

But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke’s company, the more conflicted she feels— particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream. The Cygnet - Miss Deirdre Wheaton, in London for her debut, would rather meet celebrated poets than eligible bachelors. In fact, her deepest desire is to have her own poetry published someday. . . until she meets the handsome Marquis of Wrotham and Cupid’s arrow strikes. Determined to give love a chance, she transforms herself from the ugly duckling of the family into an elegant woman of fashion. But no sooner does she catch the eye of her intended than she learns he apparently has an aversion to her first love—poetry! Is all lost? Lord Dearborn’s Destiny - After a fortuneteller prophesies a statuesque blonde as Lord Dearborn’s perfect match, the skeptical Earl is abruptly convinced upon meeting just such a woman. Blinded by her beauty, he barely notices her cousin, a lively, witty brunette. True, he does seem to have more in common with the petite and impoverished Miss O’Day than the divine Miss Rosalind, but she is not in his style at all. Will he seal his fate with the wrong woman, or will his eyes be opened in time to his true Destiny? Daring Deception - The new Earl of Seabrooke needs a fortune—fast! His title came with a mountain of debt, so he’s eking out a living by gaming. When a young buck cannot pay his losses and offers his sister—and her inheritance—instead, Seabrooke agrees to wed Miss Chesterton sight unseen. Appalled to learn of her brother’s bargain, Frederica Chesterton infiltrates Lord Seabrooke’s household as a servant to prove him a fortune hunter. But even as she gathers evidence, she finds herself losing her heart to the handsome Earl. Will revealing her true identity lead to disaster, or to a happy ending neither she nor Lord Seabrooke ever expected? Christmas Promises (novella) Lord Vandover regrets his promise to wed by Christmas until he meets lovely Miss Holly Paxton. Holly finds the handsome Marquess so serious she makes a promise, too: to bring joy and laughter into his life. A sparkling prequel to Christmas Bride. Christmas Bride - Adventurous Holly would rather spy for England like her twin brother Noel than make her London debut–until she meets the Marquess of Vandover. A whirlwind courtship, a Christmas wedding, and Holly’s life seems full of promise until her inept attempt to become a heroine in her own right ends in a terrible conflict of loyalties. Now Holly must choose between her marriage and her brother’s life! Azalea - To safeguard her future, thirteen-year-old orphan Azalea is married—in name only. Her handsome new husband immediately sails back to England, but Azalea has already fallen completely in love with him. When she learns of his death at sea, she is devastated. Six years later, Azalea sails for England herself to recover her inheritance there. She is stunned to discover that Christian, her beloved, lost husband, is alive but seems to have no memory whatsoever of her or their marriage. Worse, he is betrothed! Can Azalea possibly force Christian—now Earl of Glaedon—to remember the truth before he breaks her heart again?

Book Short Summary:

This is a history of the forgotten third battle of 1066, the battlefield which until now remained undiscovered. Three weeks and three days before the epic clash at Hastings in 1066 between Harold II and William of Normandy, a battle of the same size and scale took place just south of York at Fulford. Harald Hardrada, king of Norway, in alliance with Tostig, Harold II's brother, invaded with 300 ships, sailing up the Ouse just south of York. Edwin and Morcar, Harold's brothers-in-law and earls of Mercia and Northumbria, gave battle at Fulford. This site has been forgotten, and largely undisturbed, for almost a thousand years. Charles Jones' book investigates the complex events that forced King Harold II of England to divide his army in order to defend his new kingdom from the invasions he expected in the north and the south.

Book Short Summary:

Examining liturgy as historical evidence has, in recent years, developed into a flourishing field of research. The chapters in this volume offer innovative discussion of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem from the perspective of 'liturgy in history'. They demonstrate how the total liturgical experience, which was visual, emotional, motile, olfactory, and aural, can be analysed to understand the messages that liturgy was intended to convey. The chapters reveal how combining narrative sources with liturgical documents can help decode political circumstances and inter-group relations and decipher the core ideals of the community of Outremer. Moreover, understanding the Latins’ liturgical activities in the Holy Land has much to contribute to our understanding of the crusade as an institution, how crusade spirituality was practised on the ground in the Latin East, and how people engaged with the crusading movement. This volume brings together eight original studies, forwarded by the editors’ introduction, on the liturgy of Jerusalem, spanning the immediate pre-Crusade and Crusade period (11th-13th centuries). It demonstrates the richness of a focus on the liturgy in illuminating the social, religious, and intellectual history of this critical period of ecclesiastical self-assertion, as well as conceptions of the sacred in this time and place. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Medieval History.
