Brant's writing is incredibly evocative, emotional, and a treat for the senses —Annette Blair, NY Times bestselling author Roxton Family Saga Book 2: Antonia and Jonathon’s Happily Ever After 1770s England: Treat, the ancestral home of the dukes of Roxton. Antonia, Dowager Duchess of Roxton, has mourned the loss of her duke for three long years. Her grief is all-consuming. Then into her life steps a most unconventional man. Jonathon Strang, East India merchant and widower, lets nothing stand in the way of success, in business or in pleasure. On spying Antonia, Jonathon is immediately smitten. He sees a beautiful woman who has not only lost the love of her life, and her exalted position in society, but is bullied, badgered, and totally misunderstood. She needs someone to talk to and a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Antonia’s opinion of Jonathon is less charitable. Insufferably arrogant. Overbearing. Dangerous. She must keep her distance. Better still, she will ignore him and pretend they had never been introduced. Widely regarded a classic and a rule breaker, Autumn Duchess is a rare example of a much-loved heroine’s second chance at love in the autumn of her life. Deeply emotional and uplifting, this stand-alone story takes the Roxton Family saga into the bold new future of the next generation, led by Antonia’s son, the 6th Duke of Roxton. Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Finalist, RONE Awards Finalist, and B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree. Character-driven romantic adventure Non explicit (mild sensuality) Story length 131,000 words (not including bonus material)

A Shocking Scandal. . . The last thing the Portrait Divorcée needs is to have her name connected to that of the equally infamous Brimstone. But the infuriating rake has made it very clear that he's bent on nothing less than her complete surrender. Rich widows take lovers. Poor divorcées become mistresses. And those with powerful families tread carefully, lest they incite their family's wrath, a tragic outcome she's all too familiar with. . . Is Well Worth The Pleasure. . . Gabriel Angelstone, the handsome scourge of the ton, has taken one of life's lessons to heart: Love ruins everything. But the irresistible challenge of seducing Imogen Mowbray, a woman whose past is every bit as scandalous as his own, quickly has him rethinking that conclusion. Perhaps the only women worth loving are the fallen ones. . . "Lusty and delicious!" --Julia Ross on Lord Sin Kalen Hughes was born and raised in Northern California.

In the near future, enormous silver spaceships appear without warning over mankind’s largest cities. They belong to the Overlords, an alien race far superior to humanity in technological development—and their purpose is to dominate the Earth. Their demands, however, are surprisingly beneficial—end war, poverty, and cruelty. Their presence, rather than signaling the end of humanity, ushers in a golden age—or so it seems. But it comes at a price. Without conflict, humanity ceases to work toward creative achievement, and culture stagnates. And as the years pass, it becomes more and more clear that the Overlords have a hidden agenda for the evolution of the human race—that may not be as beneficial as it seems. Originally published in 1953, Childhood’s End is Clarke’s first successful novel—and is considered a classic of science fiction literature. Its dominating theme of transcendent evolution appears in many of Clarke’s later works, including the Space Odyssey series. In 2004, the book was nominated for the Retro Hugo Award for Best Novel.
