More from Julia Brannan & The Jacobite Chronicles World
It is 1743 and following the death of their father, Beth’s brother Richard returns from the army to claim his share of the family estate. However, Beth’s hopes of a quiet life are dashed when Richard, dissatisfied with his meagre inheritance and desperate for promotion, decides to force her into a marriage for his military gain. And he will stop at nothing to get his way.
Beth is coerced into a reconciliation with her noble cousins in order to marry well and is thrown into the glittering social whirl of Georgian high society, where, in desperation she finally makes a choice of husband in order to escape her brother. All is not as it seems however, and although she finds love, she also finds herself at the turbulent centre of the Jacobite Rising of 1745. From the luxurious salons of England and the glittering court of France, to the wild Highlands of Scotland, join Beth and Alex as they fight with Prince Charles Stuart to regain the British Crown for his family and justice and freedom for themselves.
EXPLORE THE SERIES
Jacobite Chronicles Stories
In the main Jacobite Chronicles Series I introduce readers to a lot of major and minor characters, many of whose backgrounds are hinted at in the books, but not explored in any depth. Having completed the main series, and while researching for the next one, I decided to write the back stories of some of the people that my readers had shown a particular interest in knowing more about.
They’ve been received very well, which is wonderful. You don’t have to have read the main series to enjoy these novels, but if you have they will hopefully enhance your enjoyment of the Jacobite Chronicles!
DISCOVER THE STORIES
At the moment I’ve only published one contemporary novel, which deals with the subject of domestic abuse. I did a lot of research before writing it, and although it’s very different to my historical novels in many ways, all my books deal with many kinds of human relationships, both good and bad.
Feelings and emotional turmoil are universal. They are crucial to society, and without them we would be nothing. Every human being throughout the ages has felt love, hate, anger, joy, sadness… so I hope that if you love my historical novels, you will enjoy this one too, if in a different way.
