Tales from the Treasure Trove, IV

A Jewels of the Quill Anthology

What do a love story, paranormal romance, romantic horror, suspense, romantic historical/American West, paranormal/science fiction, and humorous romantic mystery have in common? They're all here in the newest gem of a collection from the authors of The Jewels of the Quill.

Woman Cast in Amber (The Amber Chronicles Book 1) by Janet Lane Walters is a love story to tug even the toughest heart strings. Definitely looking forward to Book 2 in Volume V!

Turquoise Twilight (North of Nonesuch Series, Book 3) by Jane Toombs is the story of a woman who wins a trip to "Dracula Country" but what she finds when she gets home is even more of a surprise. This story is a charmingly fresh take on the "old country".

Blood of Amethyst (Woodcutters Grim Series-Classic Tales of Horror Retold, Book 2) by Karen Wiesner takes the stories we all remember from childhood and puts a decidedly different twist to them to come up with a tale that keeps the reader enthralled no matter how hard their heart is pounding!

Petals of a Topaz Jewel by Carrie S. Masek - don't even start to think this is a story you may have read before, a young widow starting again, uh-huh? Uh-uh - no way! Wow!

Sapphire Dreams (Sapphire Palace Series, Book 1) by Nancy Pirri is definitely a new tale from the Old West. Saddle up cowgirls - is this cowboy for real?

Saurian Bloodstone (The Saurian Series, Book 3) by Cassie Walder is a fascinating glimpse into other worlds and cultures. When a woman's dreams and a heart's longing are added to this mix we have a story that truly draws the reader in.

The Tanzanite Return (sequel to "The Tanzanite Curse") by C.J. Winters is an engaging romp with a pair of twins and their men whose lives turn unexpectedly challenging on the basis of one sister's dream.

The Moonstone Fire (Men of Moonstone Series, Book 1) by Christine DeSmet draws the reader in with arson, kidnapping, and silkie chickens. Be prepared as just about anything can happen in Moonstone including falling in love!

Even though some of the stories are advanced parts of series, they easily stand alone as well.
