Regards, Aditi. So excited I found this site. I have been looking for a book that I read over ten years ago, but it was probably from the 80's. It's a historical romance about an orphaned woman who takes over her dads fishing boat and dresses like a man so she gets left alone. They think she is a man at first but then somehow they realize she is a woman and then the crew is unhappy she is there, they keep calling her a Jonah and she was going to bring bad luck to them.
They were getting followed by a pirate captain who was mad at the other captain for some reason and one day in port he sees the woman and tries to kidnap her or he does. I don't remember much after that. Hopefully someone can help me!! Please help I want to read this book again but I cant remember the title or author.
The story was about a woman who slept with this hunk rancher then while she was in the city she lost her memory and cant remember him. Here's the catch she's pregnant with his baby and has lots of money she either will or has inherited. I think she worked in a law office I remember some horrible man she couldn't believe she would even think about sleeping with trying to convince her the baby was his to get his hands on the money and I seem to remember the name Tucker for the Ranch hunk. I could be wrong. Please help with the title of this book!
I believe it was one of a series and this one was about one of four English sisters and very funny. The story is told from the perspective of the sister who is getting married to an engineer and she is embarrassed to be thinking to herself that he has rescued her from a crazy life with her family. I remember that she and her mother rode the Tube under the Thames - which she found very exciting and her mother found terrifying.
Before the wedding, the sisters and their mother go to some ritzy restaurant for tea but discover they have almost no money but the mother deals with the head waiter with honesty and class. One of the married sisters is wealthy and arranged it but never pays for anything. Once married, they take a honeymoon cruise to Australia where the husband has taken a job for a year or so.
One of the bride's younger sisters is also on the ship relocating to Australia - either to work or live with another relative. The bride and the sister are sitting in deck chairs behind the husband and his friend and the bride observes her sister just gazing adoringly at the back of the guy's head. That's all I remember but always wanted to read the other books by this author - whoever she is. I remember the cover was solid red with the only the title on it. Forgive me if I do this wrong, I am new at this.
I read a book about a year or so ago unfortunately, I cannot remember if it is one I got at the library or what. I cannot remember the title or author and can only remember a couple of scenes. I want to say it was in an anthology but I am not sure. Here Goes: It starts off with the heroine sneaking into a guy's house to return something or maybe retrieve something as a favor to a friend.
Her friend is the mistress of the guy who owns the house. She is caught by a different guy hero who is staying there I believe he is the guy's brother or something and I believe she convinces him that she is the mistress because he was drunk. Next, she runs into him and is introduced to him at a party. He recognizes her and she recognizes him and they end up in a discussion and kissing in a dark room. She is daring and willful. I have been trying to figure out this book for over a year now.
He is now a famous businessman. He came to buy a product. The heroine also wants to buy that product. She is known as a ruthless CEO and her career depends on that product. The hero is the heroine's sister's friend. They meet at the sister's engagement. When the hero was here he used to be a rouge. The heroine always had a crush on him.

So when she was in college she created such a situation that they had to spend the night in a hut and she had previously planned that she'll lose her virginity to him. Later like always the hero plans not to call her but when she doesn't call he does. He calls for a week she never picks up. He thinks she ditched him because he is poor and she doesn't pick up because she knows he'll break her heart This thought drives him to the top.

I read this book years ago it was about a French heroine she's living in France and she happens to meet the hero by chance they spend a night together and she finds out that she is pregnant. The hero has already left at this point I think he was in the military? He was British though. Her father finds out and sends her to a convent where she gives birth to a daughter that she names Emma.
A few years pass and she somehow ends up in England and becomes the governess? The hero had thought that she abandoned their child this whole time so he hates the heroine for her actions but they end up making up by the end of the book I think she might be blind??? I clearly remember that she was a French aristocrat though but she becomes broke after the French revolution. I really really hope someone recognizes this book I am almost convinced that I've just imagined the whole thing.

Gemstone Facts - The Silver Lady
All help is appreciated! I've been trying to think of the title and author of this book for months. I've gone through lists of books by authors I usually read but can't figure it out. The book was 4 stories in one. It was based around two sets of sisters that are cousins. Each story is for each sister. The first story starts with one set of sisters coming west to live after the civil war. The older sister's husband died in the war. The late husbands best friend comes to live with them and of course the two fall in love and marry. The second story has the cousins, another set of sisters coming to live with them.
The older sister of this set ends up falling for the sheriff and they marry. The next story is the younger sister of the first set of sisters. She marries the rich guy in town after she lost a bet to him in a horse race. This guy was originally interested in the older cousin, but he was only interested in him because of his money. The last story is about the last sister.
Her name was Meg I think but I can't remember what her story was. If anyone can please help me. It's driving me crazy. Hope this helps! I can't remember this title, or author! Published late 80s, early 90s. Setting: Scotland, s, the year leading to the second Jacobite rebellion, and right after. Marriage of Convenience between I think a Campbell woman and a rebellious highland clan. The eldest daughter was to marry the man, but she fainted at the alter, so the younger daughter married him.
The man she married was the only remaining son on the clan laird, who was a scarred, womanizing, jerkface. The woman stood out for being practical and smart; before marrying she demanded concessions like having soldiers periodically check on her to make she is ok. This has ramifications later because the English officer who checks on her becomes a friend, and she uses him to save her husband. The woman ended up in the highlands at the castle, made friends with the old cook and her young maid, but lived separate from her husband who was sleeping with his father's redheaded mistress, Fiona?
Eventually, they go to a highland wedding, the husband gets sucked into Bonnie Prince Charles' rebellion, and the wife returns to her father's estate. At that wedding the h beloved cousin is killed by the H's father. Eventually the rebellion fails, the wife finds the husband, her father captures him, he is sentenced to hang, and she uses Rob Roy I think?
They sail to America. Not a lot of sex, and a lot of historical detail, in the book. There are a lot of secondary plot points. I honestly remember almost everything except the name and title. Cover, I think, was a castle in the distance, blue sky, green hills. I'm looking for a book that I do not know the title or author to. I know it was published before The heroine travels to the Yukon, I think looking for her father I believe. He works in the gold fields in Dawson City.
If I'm not mistaken she ends up marrying his younger partner or something like that.
His name is Logan not sure if its his first or last name, It might have been O'shea or that could have been the girls last name. I think she also ended up leaving him and going back down to Dawson. There was also I think a Mountie that was vaing for her affections as well. I just remember his name being Logan. I have been looking for this book forever and have been trying to locate it with no such luck. They end up in Scotland, at her birth father's. It doesn't sound perfect, but the kidnapped h helps heal the H's little sister who was raped by h's stepbrother or something.
Part of a series, though. Hi, I have being trying to rememeber the name of a book. The basic synopsis is that a florist is dropping off flowers at her brother and his new wife's house only to find her sister in law flirting with a man. The man wants revenge on the family because of something her father did so he decides to break up the marriage. The sister in law is young, bored, her husband is always away and she is feeling neglected. No doubt she would be easily seduced. To protect or brothers marriage she suggests the man use her for revenge instead.
He agrees and says they should get married. The woman is in a relationship with a man and breaks it off to marry the virtual stranger. They get married, with the women wearing jeans to her wedding. After the wedding the groom finds out that the father disaproves of the daughter and it is no big deal that he married her.
They all in love etc etc with him building her a greenhouse and buying her a car I think there was a line in there, like "you're the typre of man who'd by his child a train set and then end up playing with it yourself. I think there was something in there about her always wearing clothes with flowers on them.
The sister in law gets jealous. There is a jealous scene where the groom thinks his new wife is getting lunch with an ex. There is a happy resolution. It is a contemporary novel written in the last years, it may have been a country setting, I think there was a mention of a cowboy hat.
Hello I'm looking for a book that I read years ago. I'm pretty sure that it was written in the 80s or early 90s. It's a Regency romance book. It's a bout a young redheaded girl who becomes the ward of an English Lord. I think he's of Spanish or Italian descent. He hates that he is attracted to her because he's older than her. He hates that she has beautiful red hair and makes her wear hats anytime she's outdoors. She's very feisty and sometimes immature because of her age.
I think someone tries to kidnap her. But he thinks that she ran away and when he finds her it's pouring down rain they make love and he doesn't realize, because of the rain and all her skirts, that she's bleeding to death because she's been cut on her leg. She gets pregnant, they get married, and she has a baby boy. I can't remember why but she ends up leaving him and he doesn't know where she's at. When he finds her she's a governess, they get back together. She leaves him again this time for his best friend and she's pregnant. He finds out where she's at and kidnaps her. She ends up giving birth to their little girl on the ship.
And after that I really can't remember anything else. Thank you ;. I'm so glad I have found this site. I have found many books to add to my "to read" list. I have read a book some years back. This is what I remember about it. The hero is a cowboy -in texas, perhaps? The son had interfered with mail even then -I think it was the late s, but don't hold me to it- it was a crime and the boy roughly aged 8 has admitted to it. If I remember correctly, he said the that he liked the picture the heroine of the story sent; his father had no idea of it.
The heroine is a woman with a small boy. He is approximately the same age as the hero's son. The boys don't get along at first, but as the story unfolds they practicaly become inseparable. The hero's son admits near the end of the story that he was jealous of the other boy because the heroine's son had a mother who wanted to protect him. See, the story begins in front of store -feed store, maybe- and if I remembert it right, the woman was concerned about her son getting her.
The heroine is from Ireland and is on the run. The man, and later his family, accused her of kindapping to separate her from her son. And she saw the ad for a teacher as a chance for escape as far west as possible. The offer I think included the room and board. Anyway, the matter came before a judge and that is how our heroine came to live on the ranch and became a teacher to his son. Thanks for you help! I am desperately trying to find a book I believe I read in the mid to late 90s not totally sure.
It would most likely be Harlequin or Silhouette. It is about a man who is after the person who killed his wife and twin daughters in a car bombing. Then a few months later she discovered she is pregnant. She has three identical triplet boys and she tries to find the man she spend the night with but with no luck. Then she runs into to him like three or four years later.
I think at this point the triplet boys are around three years old and he then protects her and his sons because the man she had been dating for the last six months is the one who initially killed his wife and twin daughters. I think the triplets names were Ryan, Sean and unsure of the other one. If anyone one remembers this I would greatly appreciate it.
I loved this book and would love to read it again. I scanned through the last post but not these ones yet. So if someone has already asked about this book just point me in the right direction please. I mostly remember scenes ant he plot and I think it was a Harlequin. But it was about a guy, who used to be a surfer I think and now he works for or owns a magazine and is doing a photo shoot of the new swim line.
Back when he was still surfing he met a girl had an amazing night with her but was so drunk he only remembers the tattoo on her back and not her face. She owns a shop now that sells organic fiber? Very hippy. I remember the part where she, I think, bets him that her swimsuits are better and she can make the models look better in the shoot than he can. He makes her wear one of her own suits and realizes that she is the one he was looking for and when he asks why she never said anything she tells him that she already knows who he is. Please help me find this book. It's driving me nuts! I read this 4 or 5 years ago and think it was a fairly recent publication.
It's historical European, maybe early s. The hero is in London with friends. His wife is there. It was a marriage of convenience, and they had never lived together. She was struggling to hold the estate together. She nurses him and they fall in love. The villain ends up trapping them in the same mausoleum, but they escape and live HEA. Author or title?

I would much appreciate the author and title if anyone out there can remember. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you! Hi I'm looking for a book I believe it was a harlequin presents don't remember the title I read it I think 10 years ago or more.

Also it was definitely published before Yes that is the book thank you so much starlight genie it was driving me crazy trying to remember what it was called. I believe that book has a chair scene but I don't remember the rest. Its a long shot but thought I'd mention it. I am new to this site and any help with a title or author would be much appreciated.
I read a paperback novel a number of years ago maybe between - He takes her and the friend with his men. The friend ultimately finds out she is pregnant from the rape. One of the hero's knights marries her. Can someone please help me name this book its been driving me nuts for years! It is right after the Civil war in America. The heroin is of raven hair and they make mention of it that its so midnight black. He plays and gambles away her horse to a rich handsome horse breeder.
She runs away but eventually goes to him because he threatens to place her father in jail. She becomes ill and he nurses her back to health after which she agrees to become his mistress. He then takes her to France and she finds out she is going to have his child. She fears he wont want it after a misunderstanding and so runs away.
He searches for her and finds her. She rejects him. He and her then finally reunite at his big house. I read this many years ago. I want to say that there is a woman with black hair on a horse in the cover but i could be wrong. It may also have the word raven or midnight or dark angel in it.. Hi everyone, I would appreciate the help if anyone knows of a book that I've been searching for a few years now. What I remember is that she has been betrothed already. She's really good with her bow and arrow.
When the hero meets her to marry her, she's being attacked at her house in the woods as he meets her. She believes she's in love with a friend she's known since childhood. But she starts to be really attracted to her hero. She freaks out of how attracted she's becoming of him so she convinces her twin sister to say that she's feeling ill in her bedroom and she escapes in either a rug or trunk I vaguely remember and then goes on horse back to her childhood friends house. Without realizing that's she's being followed and she's the one who's been the target this whole time.
Sorry I wrote a super long post. Thanks Kate Hi, I've been looking for a particular historical romance for weeks now. I read it at least 6 or 7 years ago, maybe more. It is similar to 'Flowers from the Storm' by Laura Kinsale in that the Hero is struck down by something that makes everyone believe he has become an imbecile.
I think he might be a Duke or an Earl?

It is set in England maybe regency or just before. There is something about all the other family members dying or being killed by the French? I'd be most grateful if anyone knows what this book is. I'm new to librarything and I'm really hoping someone will recognize a book from a very brief description because I can't remember more than the basics of the plot really. Years ago I read a romantic mystery about a cold, cruel twin who convinces her twin sister to take her place. The cold, cruel twin is in a very unhappy marriage and has a daughter who she doesn't seem to care about at all.
The nice twin goes along with her plan for some reason and falls for the husband and the little girl.

It was about a tree sprite or nymph who awoke from a long sleep to a man coming to this very old house in the winter. They end up meeting and falling in love. I cannot remember the name of the book because it has been so long since I read it. I think the title may have had the word rose in it, but I'm not positive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!! Or possibly Fires of Winter by same author? I'm going crazy trying to find this book. I think its a harlequin superromance from the 90's. It's about a lady who is pregnant, there are two little kids involved and a surly rancher.
It takes place in either montana, north dakota or colorado. The cover has a lady in a blue dress and she's pregnant. Please help!!! I've read both of those books and they're not the one I'm looking for. Thank you, though. Please HELP! I don't remember the name or the author, but I remember that its about a woman who walks in on her husband and he's having a threesome with his secretary and another man.

He meets a woman, falls in love - but if they marry - he then needs to become Lord X and everyone will know he has two identies. This is in reply to post 66 cmboyd This sounds familiar to a Sandra Brown novel I read some time ago. However, in the book the heroine was not a twin but a look-alike and she took the evil look-alike's place after a plane crash.
I don't know if this could be it The first I do believe is a Harlequin or Silhouette. The heroine arrives from the country to net a husband. She has her old nanny and a younger sister who is very beautiful, but has intellectual disabilities. At some point, someone tries to kidnap her sister. The heroine eventually gets married to a reformed rake who is ashamed of his past. The second book is actually the first part of a trilogy. It was also an historical set in England. All I remember is that there were three sisters who somehow became separated and they belonged to a theatrical family.
The third is more recent and is the first of a trilogy of three sisters. Also an historical, the sisters are fashionistas and set up their shop in London. This story is about the oldest sister who has a daughter. There is a fire started by a rival that burns down their shop and they move into the love interests home. If so, you might be interested in knowing that the third book in the series is due out this month. I loved it! I've been finding this book for years!!! But she went nevertheless, but ultimately she came up and went back to the shack where they made love.
There was another scene where she felt someone staring at her from the woods. Please if someone know the book title help me out!! Thank you so much! I think my hero is an Earl. Again thanks - I'll get there yet. Everyone have a Great Thanksgiving! Thank you 82ktleyed! I've being going quite mad, especially as I'd like to read the sequels. Gonna to ask again. I'm looking for three books now.
Is the heroine goes to Dawson city then to the goldfields to locate her father Hero's name is Logan I believe. She ends up marrying him and they leave to go to his claim by dog sled. She still ends up sleeping with him and gets pregnant. She then ends up being employed by the hero's wife who is also pregnant, making her dresses. The wife discovers the other woman is pregnant and does not know its her husbands and shames the woman.
The wife also ends up trying to kill her own child with a pillow but is stopped and I can't remember if they put her in a home or what but the hero ends up with the Heroine and finds out she has his baby as well. This one takes place in Australia on a sheep ranch. He is supposed to be engaged to her sister. She offers to marry him in her sister's place. Also they're father wanted the sister to marry the man so he could pay off the family's debt. Hi I am looking for 3 novels.

Help me please. Hi first I want to excuse myself. I am looking for a novel. I just remember there was kind of a bet about a mansion going on between the hero and the heroine because of the heroes brother. I was kind of just looking through the book, I haven't really read it.
Hi everyone. Just found out about this place, this looks great. English not my first language, so sorry for any mistakes. I read some posts from the previous thread and I recognized a couple books that I'm also looking for I think Can't remember the author, much less the title or the characters names. The 1st was posted in ' It is set in England near the Thames. In the beginning the heroine is a highwayman dressed as a boy and is in charge of a group of orphaned boys. She tries to rob a nobleman and he captures her and takes her to his home to be punished.
When they go to spank her they figure out she is a she and he decides to keep her and train her to be a lady. In the end she ends up being or looking like someone important that they were looking for all along. Some other random things: I think she had her first "tub" bath and compared it to bathing in the Thames. I believe she had long red hair. During regency time in London, somehow the heroine is passing as a servant boy in the hero house, I think that she tried to rob him, but the hero was sorry and gave her a job instead and then the hero some lord starts to have feelings for the 'boy', when he finds it's a girls instead, he makes her his mistress and in the end eventually they get married.
I think that she also was someone important who was kidnapped and got amnesic. I'm starting to feel that I'm mixing 2 stories The 2nd was posted in ' I think he was drunk or something and she tries to rob him and his friend and he catches her and forces her to marry her. Shes actually suppose to be an aristrocat who got kidnapped when she was young. I remember then the heros father teaching her how to be a lady and then launching her into society and shes all beautiful and witty and successful.
The hero falls for her without realising shes his wife and i remember how she kept visiting the streets to feed some orphans or something and the hero meets her there again asking for a divorce or something along the lines Hi- new member - : I am looking for a futuristic romance from the 80's or 90's. A female pilot or law enforcer of some type crashes on a prison planet. The decedents of the original prisoners are living there and have formed a somewhat barbarian like society swords, etc. She and the hero fall in love and eventually leave the planet. There is some political strife, as the decedents of the original prisoners were being kept on the planet even though they hadn't done anything.
I can't really remember the details. The heroine had a vine tattoo that wrapped from her foot, around her leg, across her back, to "bloom" on her chest. I think she had red hair. I kept thinking this book was by Elizabeth Lowell or someone mainstream but I can't find it anywhere. Anyone have a clue what book this is? Thanks for any thoughts!!

I believe it was a Silhouette or Harlequin. Hey all I am in need of your help! I have been trying to figure out the title of a book. Here is a summary of what I remember of the plot Ringing any bells for anyone? I am a newbie here The heroin however disguised herself as a normal girl and work at a ranch.
She likes all the heavy machinery used at the ranch. The hero is her boss and owner of the ranch. He treats her like his other worker and has a girlfriend i think. The girlfriend is very vain and the heroin notice that his girlfriend pretends to be trendy but actually she is not. Hi: I have been looking for a specific romantic book for ages. I came across this site today and thought I would give it a try. I think he has nightmares and the girl tries to help him with that. I am not so sure on the specifics. So some of the above could be totally imaginary.
I hope someone can help me! Thanks a lot! Hello everyone! Suddenly, the nurse walked in. Nomatter what I do, or how nice I am to her, she insists on twistingeverything that is said to make me look foolish. I came here thismorning to relieve you two of hospital duty.
Thatis a weak excuse for living your miserable life. Take her home,Harriet, so she can get some rest—please! If she wants to keep attacking me forno reason, then I will keep attacking her to defend myself. Briskly,Harriet and Delilah left the hospital room while Mama Jacobsonwas still unconscious.
After they left, Emily felt a sense of relief, because she didnot have to argue with Delilah any longer. I appreciate your generous attention. Tina Roberts The lights in the room were dim, and Mama Jacobson restedpeacefully upon her bed. The juggling of every possibility made her feel sleepyagain, so she sat in a chair next to the window.
When she lookedonto the street, she watched the cars driving by, which made theworld appear normal. Do I have another bad dream turn-ing my life into a fantasy world? Perhaps Mama is a part of thatdream, and I will soon wake up, and she will be herself again. Then Emily remembered the Dream Watchman, only con-fusing her further.
What would I do with these powers that hebestowed upon me, if they were real? Lookingout of the window, she watched the birds as they flew in the sky. Would I be able to fly as they do in a magical way that signi-fies freedom? Thinking of this freedom made her wonder if herencounter with the Dream Watchman was a dream of magic,which would control her life forever. She worried that he mightask her to do something she could not accomplish. Will he everleave me alone so that I can be free like the wind that has nobind? Or is he now an ever changing part of my world forever—of my journey of magical empowerment, which is now becom-ing a reality in my life?
The biggest question of all was, what do these occurrenceshave to do with Mama? Was the Dream Watchman responsiblefor her unconsciousness, while we prayed for another wakingday in her reality? Yet, she imagined her as if her eyelidswere open, and she observed the wisdom in her facial features,which told Emily a story of a life well lived and fulfilled withtreasures of living. Emily was not ready to conceive the idea thatthe time had come for Mama Jacobson to leave the earth to go Dream Watchmanto heaven.
She believed that they had more laughs to share, andshe was unable to bear the thought of not seeing her pretty smileever again. A strong sense came over her that convinced herheart that she had so much more to experience with her mother. She felt deep inside that she was still learning from her wisdom. Then Emily thought of Joshua again, as she continued tosit in the chair next to the window in the hospital room.
Shewondered if he thought of her in the same passionate regard. When she looked at her wristwatch, the time had just passedthe noon hour; she realized that twenty-four hours earlier, shestood in the hospital coffee bar talking to Joshua Coleman. Hercell phone sat on the table next to the chair tempting her to dialhis number, yet she did not wish to burden him with unknowncircumstances at the time. Of all the chances in the world ofseeing him again, she wondered why their meeting happened ata time when Mama Jacobson was not well, with no explanationof what was to happen next.
Instantly, her attention was drawn back to her mother, as shebegan to grow weary and somewhat bewildered. What is theconnection that keeps Mama in a state of unconsciousness? She watched her to see if she would moveher hand again. Miraculously, Mama Jacobson began to coughfrom irritation of a breathing tube positioned on one side ofher mouth.
Emily was temporarily stunned, because she could Tina Robertsnot believe her eyes over the sight of seeing her awaken. Emily sped away from the chair by thewindow to sit near her, at her bedside. They were moving so rapidly as if she were in arush to tell Emily something of importance. I will call the nurse. Why are you asking me to keepa secret from Harriet and Delilah when they are my sisters? What do you know? She jumped as she felt a drop in herstomach like a dip on a cyclone. Emily swiftly began to examine each and every spirit in theroom. She saw a fat spirit standing by the wall that had the lookof a ghostly blob.
Above them, on the ceiling, were hundreds ofmidget spirits with chubby cheeks and enlarged eyeballs. MamaJacobson had an expression on her face that Emily would neverforget; her heart told her that she wanted them to leave her andEmily alone. There were other spirits in the room with strangeappearances that popped in and out of the moment. Horren-dously, she saw the ghost of Olympia Daniels passing throughthe room. Chapter 9Like a huge burst of the wind, Olympia confirmed her presence by making her voice known to Emily and Mama Jacobson.
Emily wasstunned to hear her mother speak out against the enemy. Then her spirit disappeared quicklyas did all of the other spirits in the room. What do you know about theWatchman? It is because Iwas trying to protect you. Protect me from what? On that same day, Emily caught Mama Jacobson reading astrange book, which she herself was forbidden to ever read asa little girl.
Yet, Emily said nothing to Mama Jacobson about her mem-ory of the book, as she watched her mother struggle to gainenough strength to continue to talk to her. For the first time she felt safe in knowing shewas listening to a trusted source when Mama Jacobson began totell her the story of the talisman called Inspiration. Therefore, there are three amuletsthat form the talisman called Inspiration. Have you seenit before? A powerful threeheaded dragon is pictured on its face, and her name is Inspira-tion; hence, this is where the talisman gets its name.
On the backare three separate entities that represent each amulet and theirpurpose. Prince Phillip used magic to capture thethree headed dragon under chains of fire; and then he used heras a sacrifice, only to make her a symbol of the talisman namedInspiration, capable of supreme magic. With this new power ofthe hydra dragon Inspiration, Prince Phillip was beginning togain power over his brother, the king, and came very close towinning until the talisman Inspiration was stolen.
He swore that the banditwas King Isaac, the Watchman. He gave the talismanInspiration to his wife in secrecy; but it was for safe keeping,and no one was to know about it. Prince Phillip used them as a sacrificeof war to signify hate against the king. He burned them aliveuntil they became ashes; then he put the ashes into two goldenboxes covered in diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires.
Tina Robertsless? Accordingto the Grandmothers of Raywood, the power of the three headeddragon lives on through the talisman Inspiration. In ancienttimes, the beholder could do anything within the power of hisbelief as long as he had the amulet in his possession. Shewas curious to know all of the details surrounding the mysteryof the war of the warlocks and the Jeweled City.
Her father, Sir CharlesWinslow, was a political leader in Parliament. By the time she returned to the JeweledCity, she was at the ripe age of a woman who was ready formarriage. Prince Phillip made it easier for her to accomplish hergoals. King Isaac hardly knew she existed; his cares concernedhis duty to the throne after his father, King Gabriel, retiredfrom leadership. Later King Gabriel retreated to a place in thecountry above the peaks of Cameron Meadows, miles awayfrom the Jeweled City. If Queen Cecilia accepted his hand in marriage, then why didPrince Phillip take vengeance on his brother, the king?
Could hehave not chosen another bride to be his wife? Dream Watchmanwho was heir to the throne of the Jeweled City. The talisman washis only hope for power. He broke it into three separate amulets,each representative of one head of the three headed dragon,believed to travel into the next life with Queen Cecilia.
Overthe years, some men have claimed that they spotted piecesof the talisman on ships at sea, yet there was no sign ofQueen Cecilia in any of these places. For years, King Isaacsearched for Queen Cecilia, until he lost hope and gave up. She was forever lost to him, so he despised Prince Phillip tono end. Regardless of the tales, each piece of the talisman hasremained hidden for centuries, and no one has been successfulat assembling the talisman Inspiration.
Goodwould have turned to evil, which transcends light. Darknessof this magnitude could have changed the face of the world bycrossing over into our world. Tina Robertsbed and should not be worrying about the Dream Watchman. Ithink you should concentrate on getting better. If it falls under his posses-sion and he assembles the talisman Inspiration, his powers willtransform the universe.
He will wage war against the God ofLight by eliminating his people, who are not willing to turn todarkness. A war of this magnitude will cause destruction to fallover the earth. There will be no more sunlight, because the dayswill become night. The ocean will turn black as charcoal, andfire will graze the sky, leaving only clouds of smoke to fill theair. Those who are innocent will be left to run and hide, until arevelation becomes refuge and the curse is broken.
The God ofLight will be the only one capable of destroying the evil one,and the Dream Watchman will do everything in his power tomaintain control of the world. Do you have the amuletGoodwill? Give it to him, and let him take it back to his worldwhere it belongs. I thought she died because she fell off of the porch. As longas the Dream Watchman cannot be killed, he will threaten thelife of the beholder until he is able to recover the talismanInspiration. With the talisman Inspiration in his possession, hewill become more powerful and the war of the warlocks willbe reinstated in our lifetime.
His past will become a part of ourworld today. Until now, assembling the talisman has been impossiblebecause a journey through time is required of the beholder. I am sorry, but I do not know if I can believe in this any further. I was afraid if I hadtaken the journey, I was not strong enough to make it back toyou, Harriet, and Delilah.
My strength was here with the threeof you. This is why you are the chosen one, Emily—because youdo not have any children as of yet, and there is still time for youto travel across other lifetimes. Andyou were born not only the youngest, but with a gift inside ofyou that makes you worthy of being chosen. Before you uncover it, your great-great grandmother willappear to you as an angel.
I do not wish to go anywherenear that water well if a cyclops is in it. When the one-eyed cyclops hasbeen defeated, your great-great grandmother will lead you to thesecond amulet, called Wellness. At that location, you will seeyour great grandmother appear as an angel. She then will guideyou to the third and final amulet, called Prosperity, where yourGrand-Mo-Mon will appear as an angel to guide you throughthe next task of completing the quest for the missing talisman. Chapter 10Mama Jacobson was getting weak again, and her voice was fading as she strained to keep up her strength while talking to Emily.
The doctor examined Mama Jacobson as he used his stetho-scope to check her heartbeat. Your body does not show any physical signs of disease. Are you able to speak to me? The doctor looked at Emily as if she was annoying him;but Emily paid no mind to his gestures, and the nurse remainedsilent for the time. I will keep herhere, until we have further examined her condition and feel thatshe is strong enough to return home. Tina Roberts Emily felt as if she was in the twilight zone because the doc-tor turned into the enemy and her mother was under his care.
When she looked at her, Mama Jacobson had tears in her eyes. She knew that the hospital bed was a prison and that the doctorwas the gatekeeper tying her under chains. Then Emily heardthe wicked laugh of Olympia Daniels as she watched her spiritfly through the room. She threatened Emily and the life of MamaJacobson, while they said nothing at all.
Give me what I want, or I guarantee you will regret it. Emily looked at Mama Jacobson with tears in her eyes. Yet MamaJacobson fell into a deep, unconscious sleep again. Realityhit her with the suddenness of thunder on a rainy day, and sherealized that she had no other choice but to leave the hospi-tal and journey to Liberty County. Though she was afraid towalk out of the hospital room, her heart told her that MamaJacobson would be okay. As she closed the door and was aboutto leave, she saw Harriet walking up the corridor towards thehospital room.
Is Mama okay? I was about to call you totell you that I have to leave for a few days. I will have to explain it to youlater; right now I have to go. The way she saw it, if Mama Jacobson askedher to keep a secret, then it was her responsibility to follow herorders. Mama Jacobson had asked her not to tellHarriet or Delilah about the Dream Watchman and the manysecrets surrounding this incredible story, which she herselffound hard to believe.
What was ahead of her, yet to unfold, wasa new world she was completely unaware existed. She no longerfelt as if she was in a dream, and her world was rapidly changingbefore her eyes. The situation was out of her control. Deep in her heart, she wanted to know everything about thetalisman Inspiration, which signified a three headed dragon thatwas once the power of royalty.
Each amulet of the talisman wasabout to take her life by storm, as it called on her to relinquishits hiding place. While her every footstep towards forbiddenplaces put her in danger, she let go of fear of the unknown andaccepted the quest for the missing talisman. Would more truthbe revealed at the water well in Liberty County, or would thisleap of faith take her into a world that would close its doorswhen it was time for her to return home?
Although Emily felt a twinge of guilt, she could not allowherself to break the trust between Mama Jacobson and herself. She could not tell Harriet the truth, and Harriet could smell a liea million miles away. It was evident by the glare in her eyes sheknew Emily was keeping the truth from her. Harriet was right in thinking that Delilah would be upsetto discover Emily had left Franklin Memorial Hospital, letalone the city of Houston.
She felt that Delilah was the least ofher worries now. As she crossed the railroad track on LangleyRoad, the moonlit sky dimmed into a starlit overcast, reflectingnightfall in a dark gray mist. Emily wondered where the timehad gone, but she realized she had not looked at her wristwatchsince Mama Jacobson had awakened in the hospital room. What is your location? Emily turned into the driveway, and turned off the engine whileshe continued to sit in the vehicle to talk to Joshua.
I am very worried about her. What is wrong, Em? He, on the other hand, was concerned about her extremefrustration. Yet, deep inside, he felt he needed to see Emily as much as sheneeded to see him. It had been far too long, and it was time tomake up for lost time. Emilyfelt safe hearing those words from Joshua; but in the back of Tina Robertsher mind, she realized there was a chance she could lose himagain. I am free togo back to Los Angeles; but I have decided to stay for a while,maybe as long as you are here.
She returned the gesture. Emily felt their compassion as she came to a halt beforereaching the front door. After the trees said goodnight, Emily opened the front doorwith her key. She turned on the living room light and then thelights in the hallway and kitchen. The key wasexactly where she expected it to be, beneath one of the panels inher jewelry box sitting on the vanity. She knew this was a placewhere Mama Jacobson kept all of her precious secrets. Behindthe panel, she discovered that the key to the hope chest was sit-ting there in the jewelry box.
When she Dream Watchmanopened the cover of the hope chest, there it was sitting on top ofall the other contents. A splash of light flashed an array of colorsfrom the very old cover of the book right before her eyes. Shedid not hesitate to pick up the book, titled Quest for the MissingTalisman. Onthe first page of the book was a map of two worlds. They wereseparated, but some form of life seemed to be the ingredientneeded to connect them. She lay on the sofa, as her eyes grew heavier, and restedher back on a pillow. She turned the pages until she saw theimage of the talisman called Inspiration.
Examining the imagesubdued her to the point she was unable to keep her eyes open. Suddenly she felt herself spiraling into a dream as she felt abrush of wind against her face.
The wind made her feel as if she was falling out of the sky. She landed on her bottom in a place where the grass was greenand the land appeared to be a fairy tale of colorful bliss. Whenshe looked around, there were pink clouds and purple treeseverywhere. She stood tall on her feet, and she walked towardsa stream of water, which had a reflection of blue ice and sent achill up her spine.
She was a bit discombobulated, until she heard a voice andsaw a white, flying horse sailing towards her in the sky. Beforeshe knew it, Chester landed in a field filled with red poppies. Emily turned away from Chester because she was unsure if shecould trust him or not. Chester yelled out to get her attention as he flew towards herrapidly. Tina Roberts Emily stopped running, and Chester walked towards her asshe stood in a patch of sunflowers. There, he can answer any questions youmight have.
She felt she had nothing to loseby going with him, though she felt confused. After she pro-cessed her thoughts for a few minutes, she realized that she hadreturned safely the last time she had flown with Chester, so shedecided to trust him. Emily slowly began to walk towards Chester as he looked ather with sincerity in his eyes.
His demeanor gave her a sense oftrust though her expectations were uncertain. Emily looked at the mountain, which stood very tall andappeared to be miles away from the patch of sunflowers. They cruised over the streamof water and the red poppy field in the direction of the mountain.
