Publisher: Pen-L Publishing
Published: March 2014
ISBN: 978-1940222264
Genre: Historical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), pdf, mobi

"Silver" is an historical novel that recounts the glory days of the silver mining boom. Set in 1860's Silver City, Idaho Territory, the reader is introduced to the heroine, Miss Adelaide Johnston, local schoolteacher and news reporter extraordinaire. She is a busy young woman, reporting current events and of course, a bit of local gossip, in addition to her teaching duties. When she unexpectedly stumbles upon news of a mining battle between two of the largest mines in the Owyhees, she suddenly becomes the subject of her very own story. One that quickly becomes heated and deadly.

Turn back the pages of the Old West and experience a first hand account of pioneering life through the eyes and words of Adelaide Johnston. Based upon the documented events of the 'Owyhee War', "Silver" is bound to please both history buffs and fiction readers alike.

Historical/Regency Romance Available For Review

The Maid of Milan
By Beverley Eikli
Publisher: Choc Lit
Published: March 2014
ISBN: 978-1781891285
Genre: Regency/Historical Romance
Formats Available For Review: print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), pdf, ebook, mobi, kindle


Who is The Maid of Milan?

Reformed ‘party girl’ Adelaide, Lady Leeson, knows it’s time to leave London when a sensational new book of poetry has high society eagerly speculating on the identity of its adventurous heroine.

But returning to enforced obscurity in the country when she’s already paid such a high price to keep secret her youthful folly is a bitter pill to swallow.

When Adelaide’s husband asks her to remain in London as his political hostess following the public’s enthusiastic reception of her recently unveiled painting, she can’t say no.

As Adelaide becomes further embroiled in the lies and secrets required to protect her husband’s political career and maintain his untarnished image of herself, Adelaide realises she has more enemies than she’d imagined.

And the deadliest are the ones who refuse to reveal themselves.

Inamorata by Megan Chance: What Price Fame, Fortune, and Immorality?

Set in 1879 Venice, Inamorata by award-winning author Megan Chance is a powerful look at what people will do and the price they pay for fame, fortune and immortality. Find out why I almost didn’t review it at http://popcornreads.com/?p=7680.

The C Enigma
By Spiros Gratsias
ISBN: 978-1499625608
Published: August 2014
Pages: 312
Genre: Historical Fiction
A particular brand of evil has reared its ugly head at certain points throughout history, and humanity must fight to keep it in check. This balance is sometimes managed on the scale of world wars, but it can also come down to an individual’s actions. The C ENIGMA explores the premise that one man’s courage can influence the outcome of a war on evil as large and powerful as Hitler’s Nazism. Chance—or perhaps fate—leads Matthias Adkins up to his grandfather’s attic, where he discovers a hidden picture of Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, the head of the German secret service during WWII. A few other items reveal that his grandfather has left him a set of riddles that will lead him through three time periods—1945, 1988, and 2008—on a hunt for his family’s identity and his own destiny…which turns out to be a destiny beyond his wildest dreams.

The Evolutionist
By Avi Sirlin
Publisher: Aurora Metro Press
Published: September 2014
ISBN: 978-1906582531
Genre: Historical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf

The Malay Archipelago. 1858. In these remote tropics, a young British naturalist, Alfred Wallace, toils in obscurity. He collects specimens - beetles, moths, ants and birds - that sell for pennies apiece in England.

One night, suffering from fever and hallucination, Wallace solves the greatest mystery of the era: the origin of species. To circulate his discovery, Wallace contacts a distant acquaintance - Charles Darwin, who has been secretly penning a near-identical version of the same evolutionary theory for twenty years. Darwin achieves world-renown and Wallace earns, if nothing else, widespread grudging respect. But then Wallace returns to England where his advocacy for ideas ranging from socialism to spiritualism sets him on a collision course with the men at the very heart of the scientific establishment, including Darwin.

The Evolutionist is an historical novel concerning one of Britain's most controversial and misunderstood Victorians. In a pivotal epoch that pits science against faith, Alfred Wallace steps forth alone, an enigmatic maverick who boldly and unabashedly declares equal belief in both.
