It's not easy for a woman with neither money nor family to make her own way in the world, but as one of London's premier fortune-tellers, Jenny Keeble has managed precisely that. All she has to do is smile sweetly, listen carefully, and tell her clients precisely what they want to hear. It works...until Gareth Carhart, the scientifically-minded Marquess of Blakely, decides to prove that she's a fraud.

At first, all Gareth wants is to free his gullible cousin from Jenny's clutches. But he discovers that she's clever, spirited, beautiful, and not at all the conniving liar that he initially imagined. Still, there's nothing logical about his attraction to her, and so he refuses to give in to it. He's vowed to ruin her, so he will-even if he has to break his own heart in the process.

What is a girl to do when an awkward first date leads to a trip back in time?

When she agreed to go on a date with quantum physicist, Dr. David Fergusson, Kate Kallastad never expected that he would insist on demonstrating his breakthrough in his RAL funded research into the creation of a trans-space teleportation device. Nor did she expect to get caught up in a science experiment that would send both Kate and her date hurling through space-time.

Stranded in the past with only a diminishing hope that David will be able to send them home and nothing but time on her hands, Kate takes a step down from biochemist to take a job as a maid in the household of the new Earl of Harrowby. However, this Earl if no stuffy carbon copy of Walt Whitman but rather a stunning embodiment of masculine appeal who sends her senses reeling.

To Kate, Brandon Ryder, the Earl of Harrowby, is not like any man the 21st century had ever produced. Beyond gorgeous, he is commanding, austere, aristocratic… magnificent. His appeal to a woman who had never known all those qualities in a single man was undeniable. They just didn’t build them like that anymore. He is reserved where she is merry, grounded where she is capricious. However, when Brand sets his urbane exterior aside and the passionate man within emerges, it is enough to set Kate’s heart soaring.

Brandon Ryder has spent a lifetime bound by the rules of Society and one of those rules is that a gentleman doesn’t trifle with the help. However, Kate Kallastad is no ordinary employee. His lovely new maid challenges him at every turn, astounding him with her forthright manner, by her audacity to treat him not as an Earl but as a mere mortal man. After years amid the prevarication of Society and a family that was distant at best, Brand finds Kate’s honesty and comfortable familiarity tempting, daring him to break free of boundaries that have long ruled him, enticing him to indulge in the truest passion of his life… and his growing passion for her.

Eager to indulge in an unexpected love affair with Brand, Kate embraces a life in the past only to be confronted with a choice. Life in a time that has little to offer a 21st century girl besides a chance at love or a return to her home where she has family and a job she is passionate about? Once her decision is made, will Kate regret her choice or will circumstances beyond her control change her mind for her when it is a matter of life or death?

Love takes a journey across time only to be challenged by risks, regrets and denial. When they are finally able to set those all aside, will Brand and Kate find the right time for happiness and a life together?
Book 1
A stunning historical romance from debut author Sandra Lake transports readers to 12th century Sweden, where a powerful Viking lord will discover a fierce heart cannot be taken by mere force.

Lida was married to the love of her life for just two months when she became a widow. Pregnant and disowned by her late husband’s family for suspected infidelity, she was forced to return to her family in shame. Eight years later, uninterested in the prospect of finding another husband, she finds herself the unwilling object of a marriage contract with a powerful warlord. In a day, she is wed, bed, and put on a ship headed for Tronscar; an unknown icy stone and steel fortress.

Jarl Magnus is pleased to have taken a strong wife who, however stubborn she may be, will surely produce sons. However, he is less pleased with his wife’s additional baggage—a young daughter. But despite himself, Magnus falls for the daughter just as hard as the mother, and Lida’s heart is warmed to see the cold, serious Jarl move surprisingly fast into the role of stepfather.
When enemies attack Tronscar, Jarl Magnus’s nerves of steel waver, as the warrior fears his love for Lida will weaken him. But when his family is threatened, he’ll go to war to protect them, discovering along the way that they have the strength to protect themselves.

“With compelling characters and a clever plot, The Warlord’s Wife will appeal to readers obsessed with TV’s Vikings, and who miss the classic Viking romances of Catherine Coulter or Johanna Lindsey.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers
 
“Lake’s debut historical romance is sure to appeal to those who enjoy spirited heroines, grumpy alpha heroes, and a slow sweet journey to everlasting love.”—Smexy Books
 
“Man, this was a fun book! … I cut my teeth on Johanna Lindsey, and this book reminded me so much of those experiences.”—Dear Author


Sandra Lake lives with her husband and son in Quebec, Canada. The Warlord’s Wife is her debut novel.
Book 1
The earl of Shaftesbury's countess must be refined. Cultured. Perfect. It was a lesson that proper Evelyn Ashley-Cooper had learned flawlessly over six oppressive years of marriage. Even when widowhood freed her from the prison her life had become, Eve still floundered under the veneer of perfection that her domineering husband demanded, unable to unleash the lively girl she once was from the confines of her prim exterior.

But when her long-lost first love Francis MacKintosh, earl Glenrothes reappears in her life, Eve is tempted by the desire to escape her proper façade and the longing to truly live once again. Discovering that enticement alone cannot overrule years of tyranny, Eve struggles between her old self and the new, between yearning to be with him and a determination never to put herself under the thumb of another man - even one she discovers she still loves as much as her Glenrothes.

Since meeting a vivacious, young Eve many years before, Francis MacKintosh has become a man embittered by life, by a wife who has made him a cuckold to the whole of Scotland and by a humiliating divorce that has rained scandal down upon the heads of himself and his family for years. Never had he thought that he would find Eve, his Eden, once again or that he would dare push aside his disdain of the fairer sex, to trust and love once more. But for Eve, for the love and happiness he is suddenly certain they can find only in each other, he finds himself willing to take a chance.

If only he might convince his true love to do the same!

Francis' seduction and ability to blend her proper side with the spirited Eve of years past lure the countess back to him but just when happiness seems but a step away, their mutual pasts will come crashing down around them attempting to tear them apart and Eve and Francis will have to risk their lives for a future together.

The question remains, will their rediscovered love be enough to conquer all?
