FREE The Road to Culloden Moor by Diana Preston
How and more importantly why did Charles Edward, the Young Pretender, and his failed campaign of 1745, find such an enduring place in our popular memory.
How did a half-Polish prince, born in Rome, and speaking English with an Italian accent, become the Bonnie Prince Charlie of ballad, poem and song?
Charles was helped by his outstanding good looks and his presence and personal magnetism.
He had inherited a legend that had begun in 1688 when his grandfather, James II, fled to France. He had an unshakeable belief in his right to the Crown and his ability to repossess it. Brought up in a court of Jacobite exiles, his earliest memories were stories of the throne that, he considered, was rightfully his.
‘The Road to Culloden Moor’ explores two phases in Charles’ life. Firstly, the series of dazzling successes that took Charles within striking distance of London, but which culminated in the disaster of Culloden, the last battle fought on English soil.
Secondly - his escape after Culloden and his flight into the Highlands - the period which has fixed him so firmly into our collective consciousness.
From the victories to the defeats Diana Preston recounts Charles’s journey with historical accuracy and excitement.
'… the story of `Charlies's year' is accomplished with verve and zest.' - The Times Literary Supplement
‘Preston has a good story to tell and she tells it well … Preston’s portrait of a man whose life ended in total failure does set you thinking’ - Daily Telegraph

Could Toby be everything Natalie was hoping for?
‘Threads Entwined’ is a fun, flirty novella about patchwork, friendship and finding love.
FREE Skeleton Key by Robert Richardson.
The playwright and novelist Augustus Maltravers and his actress girlfriend Tess Davy have planned a relaxing week staying with friends in Bellringer Street, an historic thoroughfare near the grounds of Edenbridge House, stately home of the Earl of Pembury.
The only foreseeable disruption looks to be the imminent arrival of their hosts' baby - which is quite disruptive enough as far as Maltravers is concerned.
But greater dramas start to unfold when a skeleton is stolen from the cellars of the House.
At first it seems no more than a bizarre joke but, suddenly, Maltravers and Tess find themselves caught up in a terrifying cycle of vengeance and murder.
The heir to the estate, Simon, Lord Dunford, is found murdered.
Though he was a likable sort, he was thoroughly hated by his next-in-succession: his caddish cousin Oliver Hawkhurst and the estate's coldly efficient secretary, Mister York.
With everyone around them under suspicion, Maltravers and Tess find it increasingly difficult to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Who had the strongest motive for murder?
And will they strike again?
‘Skeleton Key’ is the second in this quintessentially English series of detective stories featuring playwright and amateur sleuth Augustus Maltravers. The first Maltravers mystery, "An Act of Evil", won the John Creasey Award for the best first crime novel.

FREE Flowers of Adonis by Rosemary Sutcliff
The 5th Century BC.
The Greek city-states are engaged in perpetual war.
But one man towers above the chaos.
His name is Alkibiades.
He is at once a pirate, statesman and seducer whose adventures rival those of Odysseus himself.
Citizen of Athens, friend of Socrates, sailor, warrior and inveterate lover, Alkibiades flees persecution in his native city to join the Spartan cause.
However, his brilliant naval and diplomatic victories on their behalf do not save him from the consequences of impregnating the Spartan queen, and once more he takes up the outcast's mantle.
Rosemary Sutcliff’s thrilling historical novel charters the life of this Greek warrior, from his military climax to his violent demise.
Free The Years of Victory of Arthur Bryant.
Britain's first global war...as told by Britain's first great popular historian
In all of England’s great wars, it is the years of victory which always follow the years of endurance.
In this second volume of Arthur Bryant’s saga of the epic struggle between England and France from 1793-1814, the story continues, starting with the short-lived and unreal peace of Amiens, and hurtling to the glories of the Peninsular Wars – via Wellington, Nelson and Sir John Moore.
Bryant paints a vital and memorable picture of the Britain of a hundred and eighty years ago.
He highlights the similarities of that age with the Britain of 1939-45: a Britain startled by threats of invasion, grimly preparing to face the worst, stolidly refusing to accept a tyrannical New Order in Europe, and then attacking again and again by land and sea.
