Having been the class clown through most of her teenage years, eighteen-year-old Ashley Sweeney is ready to leave her family, friends, and reputation behind and start a new life in sunny California. But Ashley’s determination to show her dad and stepmom that she can handle herself in the big wide world falls apart when she becomes the victim of a mean-spirited prank. To make matters worse, the one guy she never wanted to see again has come to her rescue.
Collin Nichols wanted to serve an honorable LDS mission from the time he was old enough to know what one was. But when the former high school football star’s missionary service comes to a crashing halt, he’s suddenly the most unpopular guy in Forest Meadow, Idaho. Now, to avoid his parents’ disapproval and awkward stares from people who used to be his friends, he gladly accepts Ashley’s dad’s plea to help him bring her home safely. If only he can get Ashley to see his way . . . and if only he can forget the electric kiss they shared back in high school.
But getting home is only half the battle. Ashley soon is caught up in the craziness of college life and Collin is forced to stand on the sidelines and watch as she receives attention from a returned missionary who seems like the perfect match for her. But when an unwanted visitor from her past shows up on her doorstep, will she need to be rescued once again? And when the storm clouds finally lift, will a new love have formed in the mist?
Ashley’s dad turned to the police officer. “What about it, officer? May I have my daughter back now?”
“We’ll need to fill out some forms, then your daughter will be free to go.”
“Great.” Her dad abruptly stood and followed the officer to the door, waving at someone from down the hallway. “She’s in here. Come and wait with her while I go sign papers.”
“Sure. No problem,” a deep voice said. Wondering whom her dad was waving to, Ashley stood and turned around. A ghost from her past walked through the door, and her mouth fell open. Standing before her in all his white-toothed, well-muscled, and tawny-eyed splendor was none other than football quarterback Collin Nichols, his thick dark brown hair hidden under a baseball cap. Missionary Collin Nichols.
It couldn’t be. Wasn’t he was serving his mission in New York? “Collin? What are you doing here?”

Historical Romance Series: Stories of Rebels,Â Adventure, and Mystery
The Rebel Series is a mixture of romance and adventure. Each book, set in the late 1700s, is a love story with mystery and suspense as a young couple and their rebel friends strive to help their country. The romance in this series can be enjoyed by young and old alike. For those who enjoy strong women characters, all three books have this in common. They are independent women who have an opinion and are not afraid to express it. The heroes in this series are rebels with a sense of justice. They are chivalrous and their feelings run deep for the young women theyâ€™re in love with.
In The Rebels of Cordovia, centuries after the legendary Robin Hood, a group of men and women find themselves fighting for the same cause. In this battle for freedom, a tender love story begins to blossom. Daniel, a rogue and a leader of the Freemen, doesnâ€™t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robinâ€™s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robinâ€™s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be?
What a fun and interesting tale The Rebels of Cordovia is. A very good story to keep you glued all the way to the end. I really enjoyed the romance mingled with the fights. It is a well-paced tale to give you entertainment for a warm day on summer at the beach, or next to a warm fire in the rain. Linda writes a good, clean, and sweet romance, for young adults and adults alike. You will enjoy the story to the end.
Robin is a young woman whose father taught her all he knows about archery and sword fighting. Her strength is great in the art of the bow and arrow. As the head of twenty-five men and women, Robin is respected and has earned a good reputation for her group of rebels. She is strong and stubborn, yet a gentle and loving woman.
When she is challenged by Daniel, the rogue leader of the freemen, she accepts. You see, Daniel doesnâ€™t know Robin is a womanâ€”let alone that she is the same woman he fell in-love with. She expected many trials in her efforts to recover the throne from a usurper but, what she least expected was to find love.
In book two, The Highwayman of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty but all is not well. One year after Cordovia gains its freedom, a group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.
In The Highwayman of Cordovia you will find secrets, forbidden romance, and a highwayman that merits a medal. This book two of the Rebel Series is an adventure that takes freedom to heart and the characters will defend it with their lives. It is another great historical novel from the pen of Linda Weaver Clarke.
In Cordovia, a man and his Kingmen want to topple the president of the country. They take away the people’s land and also their ways of life. He tries to make them believe that they will be better off if he is in power. Many believes him. Others don’t, like Christine, the pastor’s daughter, who writes an article in the newspaper about her opposing view.
Another who knows better is Austin, who, like Robin Hood, steals from the Kingmen and gives it to the poor. All seems well until he gets reacquainted with Christine and a romance grows between them.
This is a clean read full of patriotic fervor and blood. It is a great read for anyone who likes history and a clean romance. The characters are charming and well developed. I recommend it to anyone, young or old.
The third book, The Fox of Cordovia, has adventure and mystery along with a â€œsecond-chanceâ€ love story. A sinister plot has just been uncovered and its up to a former patriot and a young nurse to discover who is behind it. Caroline is engaged to the future mayor of Laketown, a man of influence and greatly respected. But all that changes when she overhears a conspiracy behind closed doors. After being discovered, she runs for her life. Caroline needs to report her findings, but whom can she trust? When she asks Jesse Conover for help, the adventure begins.
To begin, I would like to say that I love the covers of the Rebel series, they look perfect for the era just like the story contained within its pages. This historical fiction seems to be taken from the pages of a history book. It is well written with good facts and is quite charming. This story will keep you up all night.
Caroline, the daughter of the doctor who helped the rebels through the other two books in this series is engaged to be married. All falls apart when she hears her husband to be plan a kidnapping of someone important to further his political campaign. The plotters see her and she runs for her life, falling into the hands of the Fox of Cordovia, though she doesn’t know it. They embark on a quest to find the truth and on the way they find love.
The Fox of Cordovia is the finale of the clean Rebel Series and is a great one at that. Mystery, treason and love is what you will find between its covers.

and all but one continent; she lost count after moving 30-some times
before the age of 20. Sheâ€™s intentionally jumped out of
airplanes and off the highest bungee jump in New Zealand, scuba dived unintentionally with sharks, designed websites, intranets, and
technical manuals, bartered with indigenous Panamanians, welded
automobile frames, observed at the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Noba,

Artist Abigail Carson crashes off the desertedÂ highway during a Wyoming blizzard while driving to reach her dying mother.Â Carbon County Sheriff Jackson Reynolds rescues her, leaving her Jeep in the

IfÂ serendipity played a hand in Abbyâ€™s journey, she couldnâ€™t see it through theÂ blowing snow. With her sweatshirt sleeves pulled down over her hands forÂ warmth, she squinted past the fast-paced windshield wipers into the WyomingÂ blizzard. Even with the Jeepâ€™s heater on high, the icy wind blew in through theÂ gaps of the soft-top fast enough it threatened to plunge Abbyâ€™s body intoÂ hypothermia. Common sense had told her to stop at the last town, but her heart

Twenty-seven-year-oldÂ Abby rubbed her sleeve under her nose and sniffed back another volley of tears.

ItÂ had been close to ten years since Abby had even talked with her. Truthfully,Â deciding whether or not to come had been made at the last minute.

Seconds dragged into minutes. Abby let loose of theÂ steering wheel and touched her head. She couldnâ€™t feel anything. Her fingertips
were too cold.

Continuing the adventure that ended in Britain just a
short while ago, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair, with their friend Kim
Maleka, are now hunting for the third Stone of Power, one of seven mysterious
stones lost centuries ago. The third stone might be located in an ancient city,
hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle. When their small plane crashes in
the jungle, Adam, Justin, Kim, and James are rescued by an uncontacted tribe.
James, who is wounded, must stay behind as the kids, with only a young boy,
Tukum, as their guide, make their way through the dense and dangerous jungle to
find the city. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and evading
predators are just part of this hazardous task.
Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close
behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is
not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible
enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to
revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must
play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge
alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before
I am a childrenâ€™s author,Â but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something ratherÂ unexpected sparked my new career as an authorâ€”a family trip to Egypt with my
mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought Iâ€™d write themÂ a short story as a different kind of souvenirâ€¦. Well, one book and a plannedÂ book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) inÂ my MG adventure series Chronicles of the
Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur,
and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiringÂ authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoyingÂ something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doingÂ research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescueÂ stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin,Â and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.
The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper by Fiona Ingram is a delightful young adult, clean fantasy with a touch of history. I found The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper a great read for young and old. It is well written and I enjoyed the history lesson without any feeling that it was an information damp. Fiona Ingram did an excellent job mixing the story and the facts in a way that the reader doesn’t get disconnected from the tale.
Two cousins and an African girl crash in the Amazon forest in the central American region. Their guide and only adult on the trip is injured and out of commission for most of the book. They kids are lucky when a friendly native group finds them and agrees to help their guide and take them to the lost city of the stone gods. Their purpose is to find the third stone of power before Dr. Khalid does. But help from the outside world disappears like the night from the day. On their way, they will have to keep a step ahead of Dr. Khalid, Tezcatlipoca’s men, the jungle animals and avoid becoming human sacrifices.
The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper by Fiona Ingram will be an excellent addition to any home library. I recommend it as a great reading material for any lovers of fantasy, young adults, and Mayan and Aztec history buffs, no matter their age. Â It is refreshing, good paced, has lovable characters and mean enemies.

them. When I look at an empty field I see a formidable citadel. When

aloft by a circle of mountains and the central business district
consists of a bait store and a saloon. At 19 I moved alone to London
and spent the next ten years exploring the world, even becoming an
Australian citizen, before I returned to California and found a new
home in Los Angeles. My world revolves around my two wee children and
my love of travel. My
days are spent in an office overlooking Los Angeles International
Airport where I work as a Director of Marketing for a data center
technology firm, which wouldnâ€™t make you think I had an MFA in film
with an emphasis on writing from Chapman University. However, I also
have degrees in visual communications and global communications,
which allowed me to work for some of the finest technology firms in
the world. In my spare time I have penned six screenplays, four stage
plays, an opera libretto, numerous short stories, and five
manuscripts for novels. My heart lies with my manuscripts, which are
focused on YA and New Adult audiences and range in subject from
Vikings in Iceland to Knights Templar in Italy to Aborigine mysticism
in Australia to shapeshifters in Los Angeles. Website

shoulder blade. She lost balance, twisting from the force. With eyes wide open
in shock, she stared at the man who had taken everything away, her freedom, her

rain came pouring down.Â
