Cartier’s Hope

“M.J. Rose soars with Cartier’s Hope, a heady tale of romance, intrigue and empowerment.”
—Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author 

Cartier’s Hope, a “lush and romantic historical mystery” from New York Times bestselling author M.J. Rose is available now! 

New York, 1910: A city of extravagant balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and poor immigrants crammed into crumbling Lower East Side tenements. A city where the suffrage movement is growing stronger every day, but most women reporters are still delegated to the fashion and lifestyle pages. But Vera Garland is set on making her mark in a man’s world of serious journalism.

Shortly after the world-famous Hope Diamond is acquired for a record sum, Vera begins investigating rumors about schemes by its new owner, jeweler Pierre Cartier, to manipulate its value. Vera is determined to find the truth behind the notorious diamond and its legendary curses—even better when the expose puts her in the same orbit as a magazine publisher whose blackmailing schemes led to the death of her beloved father.

Appealing to a young Russian jeweler for help, Vera is unprepared when she begins falling in love with him…and even more unprepared when she gets caught up in his deceptions and finds herself at risk of losing all she has worked so hard to achieve.

Set against the backdrop of New York’s glitter and grit, of ruthless men and the atrocities they commit in the pursuit of power, this enthralling historical novel explores our very human needs for love, retribution—and to pursue one’s destiny, regardless of the cost.

The Little In Plain Sight (The Hidden Little Secrets Book 2) #KU #OnSale

If only he hadn’t taken one look at me and recognized what I’ve kept hidden all these years.

Vivica Reynolds isn’t your typical “Little.” Most days she’ll never make Santa’s good girl list. What she needs is a firm hand to keep her bratty side in check. She wants a Daddy Dom who will relish her bratty behavior – and enjoy bending her to his will, even if it means taking her over his knee on a regular basis. But so far, she hasn’t been lucky enough to receive her perfect Daddy, and she pretty sure this Christmas won’t be any different, cause every Little knows Santa only brings gifts to good girls. It should be enough to make any other Little desperate, but Vivica is made of stronger stuff. She’ll just continue to hide in plain sight and hope he’d find her – without Santa’s help.

“If there’s anything I love more than Littles, it’s a headstrong one who needs to be taken in hand by her Daddy.”

As Vivica’s godfather, Noah Pearson thought he knew Vivica inside and out, never expecting to run into her at an all exclusive age-play club. He’s even more surprised when he finds out that the sweet little girl he helped raise after the death of her mother, is considered nothing more than an attention-seeking brat. The attraction he’s kept buried in deference to his friendship with her father flares to life once more. Now, all he wants for Christmas is Vivica wrapped up in a bright shiny bow. She may have thrown the gauntlet in the ring with one of her infamous tantrums, but he’s not above showing her how he handles misbehaving Littles. Because this Christmas he’s more than willing to take one of the naughtiest Littles he’s ever met in hand.

Publisher Warning: The Little in Plain Sight includes spankings, sexual scenes, age play, naughty uses of ribbons and bows, as well as some elements of dub-consent. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

 

Dakota is feeling a little bit nostalgic as she works on Rafe’s story (a little birdie let it slip that several of previous characters in the series have already made an appearance) Dakota has decided to discount Vivica and Daddy Noah’s story to free until this Friday! That’s today! Don’t miss it!

So if you haven’t had a chance to pick up your copy – now is the time to do so!

The Novels of Ravenwood

 

Night of the Owl
The Novels of Ravenwood Book 4
by Judith Sterling
Genre: Time Travel Fantasy Romance
PhD student Ardyth Nightshade has renounced men and pursues her twentieth-century career with single-minded focus. When fate whisks her to medieval England, she meets her match in a man whose passions mirror her own. Can she sacrifice ambition for a love she never sought?
Hugh, Lord Seacrest confounds all who know him. He refuses to marry without a meeting of minds and hearts, and no lady has even approached his ideal…until Ardyth. But she’s an odd one, with unique skills, shocking habits, and total conviction she needs no man. She also harbors secrets, and in the midst of rumors, plots, and murder, trust is fragile.
A woman outside of her time. A man ahead of his. They must take a leap of faith to forge a bond that will shape history.
Shadow of the Swan
The Novels of Ravenwood Book 3
Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present. Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden. Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm! But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it. From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them. When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one. She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing. Two hearts destined to beat as one.
Soul of the Wolf
The Novels of Ravenwood Book 2
A Norman loyalist, Lady Jocelyn bristles when ordered to marry Wulfstan, a Saxon sorcerer. She nurses a painful secret and would rather bathe in a cesspit than be pawed by such a man…until her lifelong dream of motherhood rears its head.
A man of magic and mystery, Wulfstan has no time for wedded bliss. He fears that consummating their marriage will bind their souls and wrench his focus from the ancient riddle his dying mother begged him to solve. He’s a lone wolf, salving old wounds with endless work. But Jocelyn stirs him as no woman ever has.
Their attraction is undeniable. Their fates are intertwined. Together, they must face their demons and bring light to a troubled land.
Flight of the Raven
The Novels of Ravenwood Book 1
How eager would the bridegroom be if he knew he could never bed the bride?
Lady Emma of Ravenwood Keep is prepared to give Sir William l’Orage land, wealth, and her hand in marriage. But her virginity? Not unless he loves her. The curse that claimed her mother is clear: unless a Ravenwood heir is conceived in love, the mother will die in childbirth. Emma is determined to dodge the curse. Then William arrives, brandishing raw sensuality which dares her to explore her own.
William the Storm isn’t a man to be gainsaid. He’ll give her protection, loyalty, and as much tenderness as he can muster. But malignant memories quell the mere thought of love. To him, the curse is codswallop. He plans a seduction to breach Emma’s fears and raze her objections. What follows is a test of wills and an affirmation of the power of love.
Judith Sterling is an award-winning author whose love of history and passion for the paranormal infuse everything she writes. Whether penning medieval romance (The Novels of Ravenwood) or young adult paranormal fantasy (the Guardians of Erin series), her favorite themes include true love, destiny, time travel, healing, redemption, and finding the hidden magic which exists all around us. She loves to share that magic with readers and whisk them far away from their troubles, particularly to locations in the British Isles. Her nonfiction books, written under Judith Marshall, have been translated into multiple languages. She has an MA in linguistics and a BA in history, with a minor in British Studies. Born in that sauna called Florida, she craved cooler climes, and once the travel bug bit, she lived in England, Scotland, Sweden, Wisconsin, Virginia, and on the island of Nantucket. She currently lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her husband and their identical twin sons.
