A love of archery brings four young girls together to form The Lady Archer's Creed. Through their mutual love of the sport, they solidify an unbreakable bond, and each woman has a unique quality that adds to their dynamic friendship.

Lady Josephine Watkins never meant to shoot the Duke of Constantan. Driven by guilt and determined to see him well, she refuses to leave his side. She could not have guessed that the devilish duke would capture her heart.

Devon Mowbray, Duke of Constantan, came to Favershame Abbey out of curiosity. He'd only planned to meet the earl known as the beast of Favershame, then be on his way. He never intended on the head strong beauty sticking him with her arrow and stealing his heart in the process.

Despite the magic burning between them, a dangerous secret leaves Devon no choice but to push Josie away. Unbeknownst to him, she's already unraveled the truth and become more determined than ever to have his heart. Is their love strong enough to withstand what threatens to keep them apart?

A Time for Everything

By Mysti Parker

After losing her husband and only child to the ravages of the Civil War, twenty-five-year-old Portia McAllister is drowning in grief. When she sees an ad for a live-in tutor in another town, she leaves everything behind in hopes of making a fresh start. But as a Confederate widow in a Union household, she is met with resentment from her new charge and her employer, war veteran Beau Stanford.

Despite their differences, she and Beau find common ground and the stirrings of a second chance at love—until his late wife’s cousin, Lydia, arrives with her sights set on him. Burdened with a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, Beau is tempted by Lydia’s hefty dowry, though Portia has captured his heart.

In another time and another place, his choice would be easy. But love seems impossible amid the simmering chaos of Reconstruction that could boil over at any moment into an all-out battle for survival. Will Beau and Portia find their way into each other’s arms, or will they be swept away by raging forces beyond their control?
