Dariel : A Romance of Surrey "I am not quite assured," she began, after waiting for me to speak,—as if I could, with the tongue in such a turbulence of eyes and heart!—"it is beyond my knowledge of English society, Mr. Cran-lee, to be confident that I am taking the correct step, in advancing in this manner to declare to you the things that have come into my thoughts. But if I have done wrong, you will pardon me, I hope, because I am so anxious about very dismal things." "I assure you," I answered, with a flourish of my hat which I had been practising upon the road, "that it is of the very best English society. If we dared, we should insist upon it upon every occasion, Mademoiselle." "You must not call me that, sir. I am not of the French. I prefer the English nation very greatly. There has only been one name given to me by my father, and that is Dariel." "It is the sweetest name in all the world. Oh, Dariel, am I to call you Dariel?" "If it is agreeable to you, Mr. Cran-lee, it will be also agreeable to me; for why should you not pronounce me the same as Stepan does, and Allai?"—oh, that was a cruel fall for me. "Although I have passed most of my life in England, and some of it even in London, I have not departed from the customs of my country, which are simple, very simple. See here is Kuban and Orla too! Will you not make reply to them?" How could I make reply to dogs, with Dariel's eyes upon me? Many fellows would have been glad to kick Kuban and his son Orla, to teach them better than to jump around emotions so far above them. But not I, or at any rate not for more than half a moment; so sweetly was my spirit raised, that I never lifted either foot. Some of Dariel's gentle nature came to strike the balance; for I may have been a little short of that. "Good dogs, noble dogs, what a pattern to us!" I had a very choice pair of trousers on, worthy of Tom Erricker,—if his had been ever bashful,—and in another minute there scarcely would have been enough of them left to plough in. But the joy of my heart—as I was beginning already to myself to call her—perceived at a glance the right thing to do; and her smile and blush played into one another, as the rising sun colours the veil he weaves.

Read the first three books in this light hearted medieval time travel romance series: Darkest Knight, Forever Knight, First Knight, in this special offering. Book 1 Darkest Knight A dark and stormy knight…No really. It was storming…and rather dark in the Tower. An unexpected trip to London was supposed to be the perfect distraction from Anna’s stress-filled life. Minding her own business, drooling over so many jewels, Anna Waters winds up hopelessly lost and finds herself locked in the infamous tower. Who knew an antique locket would lead her to a knight with a heart buried underneath thirty feet of stone? Searching for a way out, she stumbles over an antique locket with half the picture missing. Lightning strikes and when Anna wakes…she’s still in the Tower of London…700 years in the past. She crossed an ocean of time for him. Can she save them both before it’s too late? John Thornton almost lost his head and saw his family ruined all because of a woman. Presumed dead, he became the infamous bandit of the wood. Captured and awaiting execution in the Tower of London, a strange woman appears out of the darkness. As they flee across England, John finds himself chipping away at the stone surrounding his heart. And longing for a life with his mysterious rescuer. No matter the cost. Book 2 Forever Knight A tiny scrap of fabric sent her hurtling through time… Elizabeth Smith was good at taking charge. Fixing what she believed was wrong with the world. And then she met a lazy knight with no desire to better himself. A wager lost… Before the rakes of the regency period, there was Robert Thornton, Lord Highworth. Content to spend his days drinking, wenching, and hunting, Robert cared not what happened in the world around him. Let his brothers see to war and fighting. Perhaps if he drank enough he could forget the faces of the dead. Sparks ensue… When Robert offers the strange lass up as the wager, Elizabeth vows to hate him forever. Wanting nothing to do with the lass with beguiling eyes, Robert doesn’t know whether to kill her or kiss her… Book 3 First Knight Tumble through time… A dig on the border of Scotland sends a free-spirited damsel tumbling through time to medieval England. Jennifer Wilson was happy spending the summer on a dig and putting off finding a job. When the earth swallows her during a terrible storm, she finds herself looking at a bustling Somerforth Castle not the ruins she'd been painting. Medieval England is full of interesting sights...and knights. Perhaps she could stay a week or two, it would be the adventure of a lifetime. Pre-occupied with war, Edward Thornton has met strange lasses before. He suspects from whence she comes. But a dangerous threat across the border threatens to tear them apart.

'Your brother takes me for a barbarian, Mr Bowen. But I assure you, I’m quite well trained.' When Benjamin and Edgar Bowen embark on a Grand Tour of Europe, they are ready to meet People of Quality. They have trunks full of powdered silver wigs and matching suits, a hunger to experience the architectural wonders of Ancient Rome and an ability to quote Voltaire (at length). They will make connections and establish themselves in high society, just as their mother has planned. But it soon becomes apparent that their outfits are not quite the right shade of grey, their smiles are too ready, their appreciation of the arts ridiculous. Class, they learn, is not something that can be studied. Benjamin’s true education begins when he meets Horace Lavelle. Beautiful, charismatic, seductive, Lavelle delights in skewering the pretensions and prejudices of their milieu. He consumes Benjamin’s every thought. Love can transform a person. Can it save them?
