A queen now in exile as a traitor, Lara has watched Ithicana be conquered by her own father, helpless to do anything to stop the destruction. But when she learns her husband, Aren, has been captured in battle, Lara knows there is only one reason her father is keeping him alive: as bait for his traitorous daughter. And it is bait she fully intends to take. Risking her life to the Tempest Seas, Lara returns to Ithicana with a plan not only to free its king, but for liberating the Bridge Kingdom from her father’s clutches using his own weapons: the sisters whose lives she spared. But not only is the palace inescapable, there are more players in the game than Lara ever realized, enemies and allies switching sides in the fight for crowns, kingdoms, and bridges. But her greatest adversary of all might be the very man she’s trying to free – the husband she betrayed. With everything she loves in jeopardy, Lara must decide who – and what – she is fighting for: her kingdom, her husband, or herself.

As the French revolution ravages the country, Desiree Clary is faced with the life-altering truth that the world she has known and loved is gone and it’s fallen on her to save her family from the guillotine.

When her beloved sister Julie marries his brother Joseph, Desiree and Napoleon’s futures become irrevocably linked. Quickly entering into their own passionate, dizzying courtship that leads to a secret engagement, they vow to meet in the capital once his career has been secured. But her newly laid plans with Napoleon turn to sudden heartbreak, thanks to the rising star of Parisian society, Josephine de Beauharnais. Once again, Desiree’s life is turned on its head. Swept to the glittering halls of the French capital, Desiree is plunged into the inner circle of the new ruling class, becoming further entangled with Napoleon, his family, and the new Empress. But her fortunes shift once again when she meets Napoleon's confidant and star general, the indomitable Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte. As the two men in Desiree’s life become political rivals and military foes, the question that arises is: must she choose between the love of her new husband and the love of her nation and its Emperor? From the lavish estates of the French Riviera to the raucous streets of Paris and Stockholm, Desiree finds herself at the epicenter of the rise and fall of an empire, navigating a constellation of political giants and dangerous, shifting alliances.

The novel depicts the colonial encounter between Rani Chennamma and the authorities of the East India Company around 1824 for land and political power. Although the Rani put up a heroic fight with the East India Company authorities and succeeded in killing Mr. Thackeray, the Political Agent of South India and Collector of Dharwad, she was betrayed by her own courtiers later, and consequently, she was defeated by the East India Company authorities headed by the Commissioner of the Deccan, Mr. Chaplin. Then her kingdom of Kittur was annexed to the British Raj, and she was imprisoned in her own fort at Bailahongala, where she breathed her last in 1829 after suffering from nostalgia for the past glory of her kingdom.

This book comes from personal experience, both as a long time timeshare owner and from selling vacation ownership. What prompted this book? Well, for too many years I have listened to too many people whom, for whatever reasons have a negative impression about the timeshare or vacation ownership industry. As an owner I inevitably found myself asking them why. The reasons varied from "they do not work" to "we cannot afford it." For those folks this book will open your eyes. The second reason was for all those owners who honestly do not have a clue as to what they own. I wanted to let people understand something that they did not already know or have simply forgotten. Having been a timeshare owner for over twenty-five years I understand, and have experienced, the public perception of the industry. I have also seen it change dramatically during that time. However, it was during my first few years in Mexico when I sold timeshare that I came to understand, and appreciate, the real public perception of the industry. From these experiences I realized that the industry could use a simple "how to" and "why" book. The book is written in a simple, straight forward manner that is easy to understand. The book covers the history, marketplace, the players, the IN's and Out's of attending a sales presentation, of buying one -- good and bad, legislation and much more. A quick, easy read it contains personal stories and antidotes, and easy, self awareness quizzes for you to do. By the end you will know whether or not timeshare is right for your lifestyle.

First published in 1962, Jasper Ridley’s biography of Thomas Cranmer, leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII, Edward VI and Mary I, examines the attitude of Cranmer’s biographies and critics from Morice and Harpsfield to Pollard and Belloc, but draws its facts exclusively from contemporary authorities, subjecting their statements to careful scrutiny, and presenting a considerable amount of material for the first time, ignored by all previous biographers. Ridley threw new light on many old controversies and put forward a new interpretation of Cranmer’s recantations and retraction, presenting a picture of Cranmer which surprised traditionalists of both the ‘pro-Cranmer’ and ‘anti-Cranmer’ schools.

The struggle for the survival of Ireland in the 14th Century An Irish friar scribes the tale of an ancient Irish Queen whose tormented soul is imprisoned in a second century Gaelic brooch, The Golden Harp. The demonic destruction spread by the evil queens spirit will lead to the death of one of every three individuals in Ireland in the early 14th Century. The Queens Tale chronicles the journey of the brooch as it travels from Ireland into England, then to Scotland, and back again into Ireland, leaving a trail of death and destruction. Two individuals vie for the right to possess the brooch believing it to be a sacred relic of St. Patricks that will protect the one who wears it from all danger. John de Bermingham, the second son of an Irish baron, is first to wear the brooch. He is obsessed with winning an earldom and becoming the English kings justiciar of Ireland. Despite being betrothed to one of the earl of Ulsters daughters, he rescues and falls in love with an Irish princess, deemed unsuitable. Three times he will regain possession of the brooch. Only a sacred rosary given to him by a mysterious Italian Franciscan friar protects his life. Unknown to John, he can defeat the ancient evil in the brooch if he is able to pass four preordained tests in his journey of life. The first is a test of devotion, where he bestows the brooch to an unattainable love. The second is a test of obedience, where he must give up the brooch to a weak king. For the third test he must decline to become a king. In the fourth and final test, he of Anglo-Norman heritage must become more Irish than the native Irish, and unselfishly give up his life for the undeserving king. The second to control possession of the brooch is Edward II, King of England. He is weak and easily manipulated by false friends, seeking only wealth and power. He would rather thatch and dig ditches than be king. Married to Isabella of France, he prefers the couch of his male lovers to her. He gives the brooch to three of his favorites, who die violently. He leads England into civil war and the loss of Scotland. Only after being imprisoned, by his queen and her lover, and forced to abdicate, does he grasp and repent his folly. After defeating the English at the battle of Bannockburn, the Scottish King, Robert the Bruce, gives permission to his younger brother, Edward, to invade and conquer Ireland. Edward Bruce leads his army of seasoned Scots into Ireland wearing the Golden Harp Brooch. He had taken it from the slain body of Edward IIs favorite nephew at Bannockburn. After three years of Bruces terror and defeat of defending armies, John de Bermingham steps forward to lead the Anglo-Norman militias of Ireland into the final battle against the never defeated Bruce, whom the native Irish had crowned High King of all Ireland. The historical novel is based on actual historical events and individuals Only the motivations and inner feelings of the main characters are based on the authors imagination.

I am upset and fearful as to why this evil spirit from the depths of hell has chosen to disclose to me an incredible tale which reveals some of the darkest secrets of the fourteenth century. Was the King of England brutally murdered in 1327? Or did the much maligned Edward II escape his intended murders, flee into Ireland, and then later live hidden for the rest of his natural life in Italy? I now possess all the knowledge I need to know to lay
