For Princess Chiomara, freedom from the Romans isn't good enough. She will have her captor's head.
Loosely based on the true story of the war between Rome and Galatia, The Roman Mongrel is focused on the wife of a Galatian chieftain. Princess Chiomara is a feisty noblewoman who carries herself with incredible passion and bravery - even after she is captured by the Roman army.
Captivated by her beauty and unique spirit, the centurion that oversees her care is unable to resist his lust for her. After an opportunity for freedom presents itself, Chiomara faces two options: to flee, or to seek revenge.
Something is terribly wrong in the nation's oldest national park.
Horrific deaths have occurred throughout Yellowstone and everyone believes that a monstrous grizzly bear is on a rampage. Scientific evidence suggests another terrifying conclusion. For Chief Ranger Glenn Merrill, putting an end to the mysterious deaths is more than just his job, it is a mission that will take him to the brink of death and shatter the foundation of his beliefs.
Apparition Lake plunges Glenn, his full-blooded Shoshone friend Johnny Two Ravens, and Jennifer Davies, an aggressive young biologist, into a world of Indian mysticism where mankind and nature struggle for control of Mother Earth. Apparition Lake races through its supernatural tale of an environment that has "had enough" and the Native American spirit it uses to mete out its revenge.
Autumn, 1888. The population of London is transfixed and horrified by the atrocious murder spree being conducted by Jack the Ripper. While Metropolitan Police Commissioner Charles Warren throws the bulk of his investigative resources into the search for The Ripper, another, less well publicized killer is at large.
Tucked away on the inner pages of the daily press, one may have found a few short articles which told of the strange, unsolved murders which are taking place on board the carriages of the new-fangled and much-heralded transport system. Each murder takes place the day after the Ripper killings, as the murderer appears to be taking advantage of the lack of police resources to tackle not one, but two major investigations simultaneously.
Inspector Albert Norris is charged with bringing the railway killer to justice, but clues are few and the killer's motive unclear, and Albert is forced to carry out his investigations 'quietly and without causing a public panic' as the authorities seek to prevent a loss of confidence in the safety of the underground railway system. The press are being told even less, hence the minimal coverage, and Norris can count on little help from above as he attempts to solve the inexplicable series of murders.
Unimaginable horror awaits Rose Baines in The House on Blackstone Moor.
Her journey into the dark begins with the murders of her family by her insane, incestuous father. Evil has found a way in, as has the world of the undead. Will she become one of them?
The horrific discovery causes her to be incarcerated in two madhouses. Doctor Bannion, superintendent of Marsh Asylum, helps his favorite patient obtain a position as governess at Blackstone House, but why is he so adamant? The house, her charges tell her, is built on haunted moorland. Nothing is as it seems for Blackstone House, and its inhabitants have hideous secrets; the greatest secret of all being that of the blood.
Amid the unimaginable horror there is love - which comes at a terrible price. The House on Blackstone Moor is the first novel in Carole Gill's Blackstone Vampires Series. It is an epic tale of the eternal struggle of good vs. evil, and a story of love that strives to prevail, despite all odds.

Yet no refuge is safe when dangerous men attempt to foment great, king-killing changes.

They face a near hopeless fight to survive the Temple, an infamous prison, and the festering age of Terror, while being searched for by their powerful enemies.
They find hope in the army where a handsome, if impossible captain gives them shelter from Gilbert and even the Jacobins. Here, Jeanette learns of love and finds a firm family in the ranks of the revolutionary army as a cantiniére.
But even with the help of her new, rugged family and the brave captain, can she take the fight to Gilbert and his masters, and win peace for herself and her family?
When the good people of Cranston, Texas learn that a hometown boy has been killed in Iraq, they set about mounting a proper welcome for their fallen hero. But nobody thinks to ask the boyʼs reclusive father if such a memorial service is wanted, much less welcome.
Not one to make waves, Joe Morton goes along with the townsfolk until, at last, he can bear no more. Joe finally tells Cranston just how he feels.
If no one expected what happened on the Fourth of July, they are wholly unprepared for what happens next, least of all Joe Morton, whose sole act of independence brings to Cranston the two things nobody wants: change and the outside world.
The Patriot Joe Morton was first-runner-up for the 2010 Pirateʼs Alley Faulkner Society Gold Medal for Novella.
