Jean Paget is just twenty years old and working in Malaya when the Japanese invasion begins. When she is captured she joins a group of other European women and children whom the Japanese force to march for miles through the jungle.

Raised in a poor yet genteel household, Rachel Woodley is working in France as a governess when she receives news that her mother has died suddenly. Grief stricken, she returns to the small town in England where she was raised to clear out the cottage...and finds a cutting from a London society magazine, with a photograph of her supposedly deceased father dated all of three month before. He's an earl, respected and influential, and he is standing with another daughter - his legitimate daughter.

No one knew for certain just what the Blood of Heroes was, or whence it came. Some said men like old Droom came by it through a secret pact with the devil. Others said it spewed forth from hidden wells, a magical substance formed during the creation of the world. I know not, nor how King Agdalard came to know of it. This one thing I know for certain: the day Garl and his men drank the Blood from old Droom's flask was the day the tide of war changed.

Emotionally wounded single mom Sarah Price has come home to Serenity, South Carolina, for a fresh start. With support from her two best friends — the newest generation of the Sweet Magnolias — she can face any crisis. But sometimes a woman needs more than even treasured friends can provide. Sexy Travis McDonald may be exactly what Sarah’s battered self-confidence requires. The newcomer is intent on getting Sarah to work at his fledgling radio station…and maybe into his bed, as well.
