Books Description:

A new Regent was leading Scotland in the fall of 1332. Robert the Brus had been buried at Dunfermline Abbey; his most loyal lieutenants James Douglas and Thomas Randolph were dead as well. Tragedy struck quickly at Duplin Moor; the subterfuge of Scots in sympathy to Edward Balliol and the Disinherited led many bravepatriots to their unnecessary deaths. This third book of the Douglas Trilogy, the sequel to the Braveheart legacy takes the reader through the volatile years of the 14th century as the author crafts the true stories of the next generation of Douglas knights; the grandsons of Sir William le Hardi, Lord Douglas. Returning from their exile in Normandy and adventures in Piacenza, Italy, young William and his cousin Archibald the Grim seize the gauntlets of the doughty Douglas; the Patriotic Cause stirring in their blood they set their sights on liberating Scotland. Follow these Earls of Douglas as they embrace the words of the old Crusader; following their truth, defending the cause of Freedom in this exciting conclusion of the real-life story of the Douglas Clan and the Scottish Wars for National Independence.

Books Description:

Since the Anglo-Norman period itself, the relations beween the English and the Normans have formed a subject of lively debate. For most of that time, however, complacency about the inevitability of assimilation and of the Anglicization of Normans after 1066 has ruled. This book first challenges that complacency, then goes on to provide the fullest explanation yet for why the two peoples merged and the Normans became English. Drawing on anthropological theory, the latest scholarship on Anglo-Norman England, and sources ranging from charters and legal documents to saints' lives and romances, it provides a complex exploration of ethnic relations on the levels of personal interaction, cultural assimilation, and the construction of identity. As a result, the work provides an important case study in pre-modern ethnic relations that combines both old and new approaches, and sheds new light on some of the most important developments in English history.

Books Description:

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES! Known as the wicked witch of Russian fairy tales, Baba Yaga is not one woman, but rather a title carried by a chosen few. They keep the balance of nature and guard the borders of our world, but don’t make the mistake of crossing one of them… Older than she looks and powerful beyond measure, Barbara Yager no longer has much in common with the mortal life she left behind long ago. Posing as an herbalist and researcher, she travels the country with her faithful (mostly) dragon-turned-dog in an enchanted Airstream, fulfilling her duties as a Baba Yaga and avoiding any possibility of human attachment. But when she is summoned to find a missing child, Barbara suddenly finds herself caught up in a web of deceit and an unexpected attraction to the charming but frustrating Sheriff Liam McClellan. Now, as Barbara fights both human enemies and Otherworld creatures to save the lives of three innocent children, she discovers that her most difficult battle may be with her own heart…

Books Description:

A DEADLY HIGH Magic-wielding Churchwitch and secret addict Chess Putnam knows better than anyone just how high a price people are willing to pay for a chemical rush. But when someone with money to burn and a penchant for black magic starts tampering with Downside’s drug supply, Chess realizes that the unlucky customers are paying with their souls—and taking the innocent with them, as the magic-infused speed compels them to kill in the most gruesome ways possible. As if the streets weren’t scary enough, the looming war between the two men in her life explodes, taking even more casualties and putting Chess squarely in the middle. Downside could become a literal ghost town if Chess doesn’t find a way to stop both the war and the dark wave of death-magic, and the only way to do that is to use both her addiction and her power to enter the spell and chase the magic all the way back to its malevolent source. Too bad that doing so will probably kill Chess—if the war doesn’t first destroy the man who’s become her reason for living.
