Beth Kincaid left her hot temper and unhappy childhood behind and created a life in the city free from untidy emotionalism, but even a tidy life has danger, especially when it falls apart.

In the midst of her personal disasters, Beth is called back to her hometown of Preston, a small town in southwestern Virginia, to settle her guardian’s estate. There, she runs smack into the mess she’d left behind a decade earlier: her alcoholic father, the long-ago sweetheart, Michael, and the poor opinion of almost everyone in town. As she sorts through her guardian’s possessions, Beth discovers that the woman who saved her and raised her had secrets, and the truths revealed begin to chip away at her self-imposed control.

Michael is warmly attentive and Stephen, her ex-fiancé, follows her to Preston to win her back, but it is the man she doesn’t know who could forever end Beth’s chance to build a better, truer life.

The Cortés Revenge

The Cortés Revelation

Mexico 1520: As the Aztec Empire burns to ash at Hernán Cortés’s feet, in another part of the country a great treasure lies hidden in a sacred place watched over by its keepers. Throughout the land, a strange legend has long told of an ancient people dwelling deep within the jungle whose possessions include a precious set of stones with the potential to bring unlimited power to its owner. As well as wealth beyond their wildest dreams . . .

1904: In an old graveyard in a remote part of the Isles of Scilly, a distinguished academic makes a surprising discovery. The inscriptions on the gravestones are unlike any he has ever seen, at least in that part of the world. The clues point to an astounding possibility. A forgotten Spanish legend. And a four-hundred-year-old cover-up!

Present Day: History lecturer Dr Ben Maloney is sitting in his office when the phone rings. A call from his cousin is rarely anything out of the ordinary, but today what he has to say is anything but normal. Their great-great-grandfather’s body has been discovered in a boat near a deserted island in the Isles of Scilly. With a bullet through his skull!

Dropping everything, the cousins’ decision to visit the site of their ancestor’s demise soon proves to be one that will change their lives forever. With nothing but a hundred-year-old diary and legends from the past to guide them, Ben soon realizes their quest to solve the riddle of their ancestor’s death will require them to take on an altogether greater mystery that will lead them not only halfway across the world delving deep into humanity’s bloodiest past but potentially to their own deaths. An unimaginable treasure remains undiscovered – one with the ability to change the world for better or worse. And some will stop at nothing to find it . . .

The Mongols: A History – Amazon
by Jeremiah Curtin
Rating: 4.0
Genre: Non-Fiction
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00
Make sure price is still $0.99 before clicking “Buy”.

“Of tremendous importance in world history … imperatively necessary to all who would understand the development of Asia and of Eastern Europe” –Theodore Roosevelt

The Mongols were the superpower of their day, erupting out of Central Asia in 1206 to conquer an empire stretching from Poland to Korea.

Their arrival in the Middle East upset the very tenuous balance between Christendom and Islam, sparking a long-simmering rivalry that has lasted to this day.

This thorough history of the Mongols charts their rise from nomadic horsemen to continent-spanning empire to eventual dissolution.

At the time Curtin was writing, very little was known about the Mongols, even among well-educated men, and so this captivating book still serves as an excellent general introduction to the Mongolian world.

Curtin describes their homeland and early society as herdsman and raiders and, through folklore, introduces the first leaders, or Khans, including the rise of Temudjin, the great Genghis Khan, and his conquest of Central Asia.

This detailed narrative history continues after Temudjin’s death, when the Mongol Empire was divided among his sons, who continued wars of conquest against the Chinese, Hungarians, Poles, and Japanese, and through to the dissolution of the empire following the death of Kublai Khan, the last man to possess centralized power among the Mongols.

Students and historians will find this an extensive and informative read about an often overlooked society that nevertheless greatly influenced the development of the modern world.

This edition includes an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt who praises Curtin for his superior scholarship.
