As a young woman of 21, Grace did not think it unusual to marry a man of 40. Although she wed a kind and respectful individual, something remained absent from their relationship. Before she could fully understand her growing despondency and restless emotions, England declared war on Germany. Like a jigsaw puzzle turned upside down, the pieces of Grace’s life scatter in different directions. When her husband leaves for France to fight for his king and country, Grace is left behind to face years of loneliness, temptation, and loss. After the declaration of peace, the picture puzzle of her life is reassembled, but paints a vastly different scene than it did before.

Kelly Kennedy and Tyler Manning are planning a Christmas wedding, and her six-year-old daughter, Bree, is worried about being the perfect flower girl. Complications arise when Tyler gets reacquainted with a female soldier he rescued back in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Kelly gets an urgent message from the man who fathered Bree, asking for a big favor.

Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Rachelle Ayala’s A Pet For Christmas, the second book in the Veteran’s Christmas series, now available at Audible!

These are wonderful and heartwarming books, perfect for any time of the year.
Kelly Kennedy thought her life was finally on track. Engaged to the man of her dreams and with a baby on the way, she reassures her five-year-old daughter Bree, that the father she picked for Christmas still loves her.
Unfortunately, war veteran Tyler Manning has been away most of the year. Recovering from PTSD isn’t easy. Rather than worry Kelly, Tyler spends his time traveling to Afghanistan to work at a children’s charity he founded.
Kelly decides to distract Bree with promises of a pet for Christmas. When Tyler is taken hostage by terrorists, she finds it hard to convince Bree that they will truly be a family in time for Christmas.
A Pet for Christmas is a sequel to A Father for Christmas. While it can be listened to as a standalone, you’ll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by listening to A Father for Christmas first.

Pride & Prejudice meets alternate history.
Six years after Napoleon’s invasion of England….
Fitzwilliam Darcy is a traitor. He even admits to collaborating with Napoleon’s troops. And Elizabeth Bennet despises all traitors.
But she can’t make sense of Darcy. He doesn’t act like a traitor. He risks his own safety to save young women from the French. And how can she despise a man who loves puppies? Something about him doesn’t add up – and she finds him far too attractive.
Then Darcy’s carefully constructed world crumbles, and he must entrust his closest-held secret to Elizabeth. To protect that secret, Elizabeth must disappear entirely, leaving her family and Darcy behind, to plunge herself into the dizzying world of fashionable London and the dangers of the Loyalist Resistance. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Darcy is determined to find Elizabeth. Now that she knows the truth about him, there’s nothing to keep them apart – nothing, that is, until the day Darcy is forced to choose between his country and the life of the woman he loves….

Teacher required. Must have boat.
Molly is a predictable, no surprises, plan ahead kind of girl, and the last person who should answer the ad for a teaching job on the remote Scottish island of Lilliebrae. She’s never been the type of adventurous spirit that would even consider such a radical change. And truthfully, she only took the job after her life in America went from bad to worse. From day one on the island, Molly’s sure she’s not meant to stay. When a rugged journeyman arrives, things get even more complicated, and she’s pushed even further outside her comfort zone. With his help, Molly works on finding the beauty of perhaps.
In this snapshot of modern day Scotland, Eryn Scott weaves one woman’s journey of self-discovery with Scottish tradition and a sprinkling of windswept love.

Uncle Vanya is Anton Chekhov’s 1902 tragicomedy focusing on the romantic entanglements of the residents of a declining country estate.
