Noun. 'A strong feeling of support or allegiance.'
For some, loyalty can be bought. For others, it's earned. But the thing about loyalty -- it can change in an instant. All it takes is one act, one decision, and loyalty shifts to betrayal in the blink of an eye... a sin which cannot go unpunished.
Not in this world.

Yet, no matter the reason or motive, the consequences of betrayal are always deadly.
Because in this world everyone is...

There's a story you might have heard about an outlaw named Hood. Well, that story was wrong. Very wrong. Hood was a man to be remembered alright, but not for the reasons you're thinking of. After all, an outlaw's an outlaw for a good reason.
This dark and twisted tale leaves no death out, no gut-churning detail is eluded. For this bandit's ambition rose higher than the tallest castle in England and his arrows tore through more flesh than a butcher. The thought of being forgotten galled the bowman, worse, it became an obsession. Which man, after all, does not want their name sculpted into history and their lives fashioned into words on a page?
Hood wanted this and more. His fingers grasped at the strings of life, pulling all he could and searching for a kind of immortality. This, however, comes at a cost. A cost that's measured in buckets of blood and shrouded in death.

As the journey to Isle Lore nears, Irene witnesses the marking of a new faerie ruler. This along with an ancient, nearly-forgotten prophecy, leaves Irene more curious than ever. ...

In Russia's struggle with Napoleon, Tolstoy saw a tragedy that involved all mankind.

A Norfolk Mystery
A missing woman. An anxious brother determined to find her. The life she never told him about. Can he unravel the secrets of the sister he thought he knew and find a way to bring her home?
When Sarah de Malmanche, a newly recruited environmental protestor, disappears under grim circumstances, her brother Ralph decides to launch an investigation. The incident leading to Sarah's disappearance seems to hold the key. But at first, neither Ralph nor the police make any headway.
When Ralph employs a few methods that aren't available to the Norfolk Constabulary, the investigation begins to bear fruit. But uncovering the life that Sarah never told him about and then getting to the truth of what happened to her, proves to be a hazardous business.

Carol came next, teaching him confidence. And then Gina, and with her he had never been more fulfilled. But Gina had also brought heartache. There was chubby Cynthia, and Grace who believed they would marry. There was Paula, already married. Paula only wanted sex. And then there was Jenny, his wife. But Jenny won't have him back. He can't understand why sex and love had brought so much pain, misery and now utter loneliness into his life, and why the fire in his chest has died.

Pearlie Jane's Soul Food Kitchen Volume 2 is the completion of a two volume anthology set centered around the the fictional character, Pearlie Jane Meadow, and her Christ Community Mission and Pearlie Jane's Soul Food Kitchen, where hungry souls can go to get a meal for a price based upon their ability to pay even if that is zero and an extra helping of love, respect, and compassion. In Volume One Pearlie Jane reached out to Jennifer, a girl in search of the love of her biological father and finds rejection and hard times instead. In Volume One she interacts with love and compassion with a host of characters that many Christians might ignore, Elizabeth and Felicity, prostitutes who were pulled into an association with a local criminal gang leader, Ben an ex-con who spent time in prison for armed robbery, and Leon the mentally challenged younger brother of a local crime boss.

There are two things you need to know about James Urquhart, science lecturer living in the 21st century and Elizabeth Bicester, Victorian Cambridge graduate.
They both keep diaries and due to a quirk in space-time they met each other at a cricket match at Hamgreen in 1873.
Surprisingly, James, who is just your average confused modern guy, finds Elizabeth is no Victorian prude, who wins him at every turn and returns his quickfire wit with equal gusto. It therefore takes a while and some considerable discussion regarding each other's customs and manners before they realise, they are from different times. And only a little longer to fall in love.
Thus, they'd rather be at home snuggled up reading a book or watching telly. Unfortunately, due to their inquisitive nature about saving the world from being taken over by social media, they find themselves buffeted about in time and alternative universes.
This is not easy. Trying to make sure you have the right clothes for the period is really ...

"My name is Merkim, and I come from the sea."
In 1850, a struggling Irish farmer happens upon a young woman washed ashore on a desolate beach and nurses her back to health. Little does he know who she really is, but in appreciation for his help, she rewards him with a sacred gem and a promise. A promise that a hundred and fifty years later threatens to destroy an entire American family.
The tale takes the reader from that lonely Irish beach all the way to the mountains of the western United States and then drags you deep beneath the waves to the mythical faerie realm of Tir fo Thuinn. There, a mad king awaits, and his wrath over Merkim's Promise spares no one, neither faerie or human.
What if you could go back and re-live those painful, telling, moments in a relationship and say the words you meant to say, take a different path to happiness?
What if you were given those opportunities and assisted by the most unlikely of mentors?
What if life was more like a dream than a perfectly-ordered sequence in time, in that events blended one into another without reason at first, but suddenly made perfect sense?

A heartfelt tale of courage and romance, drenched in humor, adventure, and Cherokee traditions.
A treacherous journey leads to a spiritual awakening and a bright new future.

It is not trying to convert anyone to any religion or change the readers values in any way. It is a historic, romantic, adventure.

In pursuit of justice McPherson didn't realize she'd stumbled onto a battle older than time itself. Good and Evil could take a back seat to the real world war between the dragon and the descendants of the woman from Revelation 12:17.
