Sneak Peek of Daughters of the Cosmos by Dana Littlejohn

“My lord, my son has only been the leader in our land for the last five years. We live under his rule now. The people are duty-bound to follow him.”

“And I do not believe the old tales my father spouted when we were children!” the chief interjected angrily. “My brother may believe those old wives’ tales the elders droned on about in our youth, but I do not. I am the only lord here! We have no need of the gods. You should fall on your face and pay homage to me!”

“Silence, Muruso, have you gone mad?” his father stated, yanking on Muruso’s garments. 

“Be still, old one,” Rubani said, holding up a patient hand. “Let your leader speak his mind,” he added calmly.

The old man nodded and took a step back. Rubani turned and addressed Muruso, his words calm and to the point.

“I have been through your land. It is clear to me now that you are disrespectful to the gods and have destroyed the soil with your lack of knowledge. You make no use of your elder’s wisdom. I have conquered the armies you sent to put an end to the Buganda people, so you could conquer their territory. We are here to claim what is now theirs and no longer yours. Do you wish to challenge me for that claim?”

Muruso’s overconfidence put a smug look on his face as he listened to Rubani. He openly looked Rubani over with a sneer on his lips. It was true that Muruso stood as tall as Rubani with a strong and powerful build, but a mere mortal would never be a match for the god of war. The look of arrogance in Muruso’s eye told Rubani that he would accept his challenge.

Guest Post: Thanks Mr. Lizard by Pamela Gibson

Thanks Mr. Lizard

I was introduced to the Regency period of British history when I returned from my first trip to England.  I had carelessly made a promise to my five-year-old who had just watched Godzilla and a few other monsters annihilate London via an old tv movie, and begged to go there. “When you’re nine,” I said, picking a number out of the air. Sure enough, on his ninth birthday, my son pointedly reminded me of the promise.

We went the following summer and I fell in love with its history, its people, its quaint country villages, its grand estates. When I came home I began reading Regency period books by Mary Balogh, Jane Austen, even old Barbara Cartland books. I decided I wanted to write books like theirs and my Regency series was born.

Scandal’s Redemption is the fifth book of the series, but like all of my books, can be read as a stand-alone although it is about a twin. The other twin’s book is Scandal’s Deception which you might enjoy reading first, just to avoid spoilers.

If you love the Regency period, I hope you get to visit London one day (if you haven’t already). And I promise you, Godzilla is long gone.

Author of eight books on California history and eighteen romance novels, Pamela Gibson is a former City Manager who lives in the Nevada desert. Having spent the last few years messing about in boats, a hobby that included a five-thousand-mile trip in a 32-foot Nordic Tug, she now spends most of her time indoors happily reading, writing, cooking and keeping up with the antics of Ralph, the Rescue Cat. She loves dry red wine, all kinds of chocolate, old Jimmy Buffet sailing songs, and curling up with a good book.

James Margrave, Earl of Seaton, must have an heir to keep his estate from falling into the hands of his cousin, which means he has to marry.
