UNBIDDEN - Rochelle of Alda, a feisty Franc noblewoman, expects to continue her industrious life managing her family's estate. But when her emperor summons her to the palace to meet the skilled soldier she is required to marry for political reasons, Rochelle quickly engages in a battle for independence from David of Bavaria. Even as her own deceptions multiply she suspects another of also plotting against their marriage. To her surprise, and too late, David's passion and patience begin to win her heart. Can their love survive the tangled web of her schemes and the secret adversary David refuses to see?

LOVE LIKE A RIVER: Historical Romance Novella - What is new bride Gratia to think when her husband's been gone for six months and a woman claiming to be his lover attends her sister's house party? Her reunion with Leo sizzles with anger, accusations and denied passion.

SECOND LOVE: A Short Historical Romance Story is volume 1.5 in the Evolution Series, chronologically falling between the last chapter and the epilogue of Unbidden.

When Ingrid helps a noblewoman escape, she is sure her master's retribution will be severe. Instead, the woman and her husband quickly return to offer the widow and her young son protection far away in Francia. Their new home provides comfort and stability but does not relieve her inner shame at what she'd done to survive. Certain she does not deserve a second love, she resists the yearnings of her heart and discourages a worthy suitor.

A story told through a year of seasons, Second Love unites a man and a woman who both have pieces of their pasts they would rather forget.

REDEEMED - Can a quiet widow help a damaged, secretive man find redemption?

Doeg has only two requirements in a wife and upon meeting Philantha he knows she is the one who will fulfill them. However, she has a requirement of her own that tests and eventually breaks down the barriers Doeg has maintained around himself for decades. They struggle during the day to revitalize his estate while the night-time awakening of their passion leads to binding love and redemption beyond their wildest imaginings. When an unexpected threat to Philantha emerges Doeg rises to the challenge, throwing off the shackles of his past once and for all.

VAIN - Lily had her life planned, neat and tidy as thread on a spindle, until her mother died and her father snipped at the seams of her future by abandoning Lily in their shop. A nobleman unexpectedly gives her hope when he brings fabric for a special garment. Lily survives on his first payment, and immerses herself in sewing and embroidering an incomparable tunic for him, as her tidy plan continues to unravel.

Theophilus, Lord of Ribeauville, takes his responsibility to his townspeople seriously and, therefore, does not dally with local women. Desire wars with duty when Lily glances up at him while adjusting the hem on his Easter tunic. As her deteriorating circumstances push them together, Theo and Lily learn that the path to his heart just might be through his wardrobe, though the exquisite outfit she creates is the only part of her that fits in his precarious aristocratic world.

LITTLE WITCH: HISTORICAL ROMANCE NOVELLA - A vicious neighbor uses a series of coincidences to label Salena as the local moon-charmer and outcast in rural Francia. When Salena encounters her brother's childhood friend, Nox, out on business for the Lord of Ribeauville, she worries he will accept the locals' tales about her, especially since they relate to the death of his family a decade before. He is, instead, as charmed by her as she is by him.

Nox's sympathy toward her evolves into affection in spite of his strict rule against close ties with people. Afraid to risk another loss like that of his youth, he abruptly ends their relationship, unaware that Salena has already been downtrodden by her father denying her request to venture farther out into the world.

A threat to Salena's family prompts her to run away in the hopes of protecting them while forging a new path for her life. Too late, Nox discovers that she has also run away with his scarred heart.

About the Author

The most interesting fact about Jill Hughey is that she can sing really, really high. As in opera-singer high. She only does that when she is not writing, working part time as a business administrator, running her two teenaged sons around, and enjoying the support of her wonderful husband. Her ideal afternoon is spent on her front porch with an iced coffee as she moves the characters out of her head into her her laptop. Happy Reading!
