Nancy Jardine finds all historical eras totally fascinating and research a delightful procrastination! Her week is taken up with grandchild-minding, gardening, reading, writing and blogging. Catching up with historical programmes or TV series and watching the news is a luxury - as are social events with friends and family but she does a creative job to squeeze them in.
Take Me Now
Patience isn't Nairn Malcolm's strong point when he finds himself
and his business mysteriously under attack. He needs a general
factotum immediately- someone with exceptionally varied skills
who can ferry him around, help him keep his business running
smoothly and be available to him 24/7. He doesn't expect the only
candidate who arrives at his Scottish island castle for an
interview to be so competent…or so incredibly attractive.
When Luke Salieri inherits a dilapidated English estate from a
woman he's never heard of- with quirky conditions attached-it's a
mystery he wants to see resolved immediately. But there's a
catch: he needs a woman to meet his needs, but just how far will
he have to go to persuade her?
After Whorl: Bran Reborn (#2 - Celtic Fervour Series)
RAVAGED BY WAR ...AD 71. After the battle at Whorl, Brennus of
Garrigill is irrevocably changed. Returning to Marske, Ineda
finds her grandmother dead, though Brennus is not. Snared by a
Roman patrol, they are marched to Witton where he is forced to
labour for the Roman IX Legion. Embracing his new identity as
Bran, Brennus vows to avert Roman occupation of northernmost
Brigantia. Ineda becomes his doughty spying accomplice, though
sometimes she's too impetuous. Trading with the Romans lends
excellent opportunities for information gathering. Over time,
Bran's feelings for Ineda mar with his loyalty to Ineda's father.
When she disappears, and cannot be found, Bran enters direct
service with Venutius, King of the Brigantes.
