    Summary

    It's 1902 and a youthful Abby Griffin takes up a post in a remote part of Scotland where she is to nurse a wounded man back to health. Her young charge, Lord Marcus Kane, was injured in war, but won't talk about what happened to him. In fact, he barely talks at all except to be rude and dismissive to his carer. Abby soon realises his wounds are mental as well as physical and sets about trying to heal his mind and body. Lord Kane finds her exasperating, but Abby is relentless and believes she can wear him down. She has reasons of her own for wanting to stay as long as possible in this hidden part of the country, far away from the life and troubles she has left behind. Will she succeed in bringing life back to Arkaig Hall and its residents, and can she hide from her past forever?

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a headstrong widow must be in want of all the happiness for her daughter — and a slightly more exciting life than the serene countryside of Hertfordshire, 1814. But when two wealthy gentlemen rent the estate bordering the cottage of the impoverished Griffins, the news rouses every marriage-minded mother of the area into a fierce joy - except for Abby Griffin. The reason for her mortification is the steely gaze of her new neighbour, Admiral Kane; a man she hasn't seen for two decades and would've desired the fact remain forever unaltered.

    After 8 long years, Admiral Kane finds the courage to offer some courteous assistance to the wife his dear friend has left behind - only to be faced with a pair of brown, fiery eyes and memories of the past so shameful he can barely hold her gaze. To the chagrin of the local ladies, he has absolutely no intention to obtain himself a wife by the end of the hunting season, but as time passes, he finds himself being persuaded of the opposite by the terrifying hope growing in his heart...

    A story of love, family, simmering passion, persuasion and pride & prejudice. Or in a nutshell: my love letter for Jane Austen.

    Summary

    The war-torne city of Arkadia is just a ghost of what was once Abby Griffin's house. The only still functional Hospital of the city is now her home. She must survive to save more people she can. But everything is harder since her husband has been executed for a "dangerous behaviour". Marcus Kane is the General of the Army she has to face everyday, there to protect her and the civilians from snipers, scavengers and bandits.

    Outside is hell, the night is the only moment people can search for food and medicines, doing everything to survive. Will all of them survive? Or will this war survive them?
