Book Cover Art Work for the book titled: Love's Unfading Light: Historical Christian Romance (Eagle Harbor Book 1)

A man ready to put the past behind him, a widow struggling to find a future, a boy in need of a father… and a small town where nothing stays secret.

Tressa Danell is finished with men—from the wastrel who left her a widow, to the smelly trapper who keeps proposing, to the banker who wants to repossess her bakery. She spends every hour working to pay off her late husband’s debt and keep a roof over her son’s head, though it’s doubtful she can continue to do both for very long. But one thing’s certain—she’ll never be beholden to a man again.

Lighthouse keeper Mac Oakton has long dreamed of leaving Eagle Harbor and running a shipyard in a place where no one knows his family’s past. He’s tired of living in a small town where actions his father committed ten years ago still haunt him. So why does the pretty widow at the bakery keep tugging at his heart? He can’t get involved in her predicament when he’ll only be around for two more weeks.

But when Tressa’s burdens overwhelm her, they both face a decision. Can Mac find a way to help Tressa without giving up his dream of leaving town? And will Tressa accept his support if doing so means being obligated to a man again?

Love’s Unfading Light is the first book in the Eagle Harbor Series by Naomi Rawlings. If you like heartwarming stories and characters that feel like your best friend, you’ll love this tender tale of hope restored.

Blackbeard: The Birth of America

Book Cover Art Work for the book titled: Blackbeard: The Birth of America

“Blackbeard: The Birth of America” is the true story of Edward Thache—former British Navy seaman and notorious privateer-turned-pirate, who lorded over the Atlantic seaboard and Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy. A Robin-Hood-like American patriot and the most famous freebooter of all time, Blackbeard was illegally hunted down by Virginia Governor Alexander Spotswood, the British Crown’s man in Williamsburg obsessed with his capture. Based on reliable historical records and the latest research, this adventure tale illuminates the true man behind the myth and his doggedly determined pursuer, revealing a cat-and-mouse game and important historical figure lost to us in a “fog of legend, myth and propaganda” for three hundred years. A folk hero in his own lifetime, Blackbeard exploded onto the scene during the birth of America and was one of the first American revolutionaries in the War of Independence against British rule.

Book Cover Art Work for the book titled: The Girl Empress (The Chronicle of Maud Book 1)

The history books remember her as Empress Mathilda, but her path to sovereignty began when she was just a girl named Maud. Engaged, estranged, and crowned by the age of twelve, this is her story . . .

As the firstborn legitimate child of King Henry I of England, Princess Maud is faced with the fiercest crisis of her eight-year-old life when she learns that she will be sent to Germany to marry the Holy Roman Emperor. To make matters worse, her husband-to-be is in the midst of a disagreement with the Pope, and the threat of civil war continuously rages. Thrust into the middle of the greatest political controversy in Europe, Maud must learn to navigate the turbulent political waters while also managing her own transition from girl to woman.

Students of history will know the ending: Maud will successfully become Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, Queen of Germany, Queen of Italy, and the sole legitimate heir to the English throne. But The Girl Empress invites readers to join Maud on the journey of a lifetime, experiencing the depths of her hopes and dreams, her anxieties and strengths, her successes and failures. The history books haven’t done her justice.
