eBook by Jewels Of The Quill

eBook Category: Romance EPIC eBook Award Finalist
eBook Description: The Amber Dragon (The Amber Chronicles, Book 3) {a love story} by Janet Lane Walters (Dame Amber): Enter the world of the amber orb and learn the fate of the first prince to face the witch's curse and be cursed to live out his existence inside the orb. Inside the world of the orb, Stephen Riva emerges from the forest and walks until he finds a village. He has no money and few skills, but he has to eat. He takes a job in the kitchen of a village tavern, but this is not the life he has been trained for let alone the one he wants. He is a prince without a kingdom. Is there a place for him in this new world? Princess Valia is beautiful but vain and selfish. She has refused every prince of the near and far kingdoms. They haven't paid enough homage to her beauty. Her father is at the end of his patience and orders the court wizard to teach her a lesson. The wizard changes her into an amber-colored dragon--a fat, five-foot dragon. She must find a prince who will kiss her in order to turn back into her beautiful self. But how, when she has alienated every prince she knows? She flees the palace and begins to wander. Stephen hears of the dragon and goes to save the people from it. When she learns her challenger is a prince who does not know her history, can she entice him to kiss her? If he does, will she learn her lesson? Jordana's Chair (Kaleidoscope Series, Book 4) {romantic suspense} by Karen Wiesner (Dame Amethyst): Kaleidoscope Office Building provides employment to nine hot, young singles--all about to make a love connection. Working 9 to 5 has never been so complicated?or so much fun! Soulful-eyed heartbreaker Dex Everett has been intrigued by his neighbor since she moved into his building a year ago--though, or perhaps because--she's nothing like the made-up glamour girls he's used to dating. Jordana DeSoto barely speaks English, has worn the same two handmade outfits in all the time he's known her, and has never bothered with, nor needed, make-up. The few times he's helped her carry furniture up to her apartment, he's noticed that her living space is basically empty. No one he's ever known could be content with so little simply because she earned it on her own or display such joy over a new chair. Jordana captures Dex the way no other woman ever has. Is this ladies' man officially off the market? The Nonesuch Curse (North of Nonesuch Series, Book 8) {gothic historical romance} by Jane Toombs (Dame Turquoise): "My name is Falana, I am a fae, and Ruthven blood I curse this day..." For five generations, the wood witch's curse has killed all Ruthven males on their thirtieth birthday. When Trilla Pasanen falls in love with Rom Ruthven, she discovers that the only way to save him is to believe in the power she hasn't been able to accept as her own. If she fails, Rom will die at thirty just as every Ruthven male has since Falana pronounced her evil curse. Choices (Aquamarine Series, Book 3) {romantic suspense} by Dee Lloyd (Dame Aquamarine): In the midst of the laughter and dancing at the Jameson/Donatelli stag and doe party, life-changing choices are made. One choice could lead to lasting love, another to violent death... Experience has taught the event manager at Aquamarine Lake Lodge, Elly Jameson, not to trust good-looking, charismatic cops. Police officer Ward O'Donnell has resisted his fascination with his buddy's younger sister since Elly was an exciting teenager who burned up the slalom courses ten years ago. When there's a murder at the Jameson/Donatelli party, Ward and Elly find themselves working together to solve the crime. But how will they deal with an attraction that verges on combustible? The Incomparable Miss Scarlet {Victorian romance} by Nancy Pirri (Dame Sapphire): In 1851 London, Scarlet Warden stumbles upon her brother-in-law making love to a woman who's not her sister. But when Scarlet reveals the truth to Emma, her sister wants to turn a blind eye to the entire affair because divorce simply isn't an option, since the laws of the land could leave her penniless and without custody of her children. Scarlet's sleuthing leads to several other female acquaintances begging her to spy on their husbands and she gains governess positions in various households in her quest to prove their unfaithfulness. Thirty-year-old bachelor, Hugh Henry Hamilton, the Duke of Danescliffe, has heard the laments from male friends. Hugh stands behind the sanctity of marriage and believes these men deserve what they got. He has yet to find a wife for himself until he meets London's notorious snoop and knows she's the only one for him. Garnet Hills {romantic suspense} by Liz Hunter (Dame Garnet): It's a dream come true when Julianne Harrison inherits a horse farm from her estranged father. But is she strong enough to handle the problems...and dangers...that come with the property, especially when one of them comes in the package of one gorgeous cowboy? The Topaz Guard {swashbuckling romance} by Carrie S. Masek (Dame Topaz): Set in Orléans, France, 1585, in an era when Catholic and Protestant vie for control of France, eighteen-year old Lisette Mercer is on the brink of her lifelong goal--acceptance into the Abbey of Paraclete and a life of monastic study--when a young nobleman, Charles de Verney, crashes into her life. Charles is handsome and charming--and a member of the Topaz Guard, the same guard that murdered Lisette's parents during the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre thirteen years earlier. Hidden in a chest, she watched her family die, and she is haunted by the memory of a blood-splattered, jewel-encrusted sword--golden jewels, like the topaz set in the base of each sword wielded by the Topaz Guard. Intrigued by her wit and intelligence, Charles courts Lisette, and she conquers her fear and distrust of guardsmen to return Charles' love. On the eve of their betrothal, a demon from her past returns and threatens not only their happiness but also their lives.

"Seven Jewels of the Quill authors offer new, short, exciting Tales from the Treasure Trove! I love a good, fast-paced short story. This collection of short stories will leave the reader wanting more tales by these authors. I know I will. This book left me wanting more romance stories by these authors. The reader will recognize many of the authors' names. Love, romance and suspense abound in these stories." ~Readers Favorite http://readersfavorite.com/cat-71.htm?review=2642 4 Stars! "Seven short stories ranging from gothic historical and Victorian to romantic suspense make up this original collection. These stories will appeal to readers who are looking for an eclectic mix of genres with a dash of romance. A particularly good story is Pirri's "The Incomparable Miss Scarlet," because Scarlet, who is a modern woman living in the 1800s, is a fascinating character." ~Barb Anderson for RT Book Reviews http://www.rtbookreviews.com


For the first time, we no longer require our contributing authors in the Tales volumes to use their dame gem in titles and story themes. Since some of our authors have contributed to every volume, this became overwhelming to have so many stories with similar titles.
