There are moments when my mind travels back to that warm summer day when I was just a child and I remember. All at once I am torn by regret and remorse for what I have done - and for what I did not do. Were I a better person none of it need ever have happened. Yet even if I had known what was to come, could I have prevented it? There were other forces at work, stronger wills than mine, and I was carried along by the momentum, swept up like a leaf in a gale. No, that is the excuse of a weak woman begging for the blame to be lifted from her shoulders, for forgiveness. I was never weak. Even when we were children it was always I who led and Michael who followed, for all that he was older and stronger. But I have learned that there are different strengths - strength of purpose, strength of body and strength of mind. As I stand now looking out of my window at gardens, which were once beautiful but have now fallen into neglect, I know that much of what happened here was my fault. The grief and pain I feel cannot be avoided; they are mine and I accept them. I must bear them until the day comes when I can forgive myself. By way of atonement I have decided to set it all down just as it happened, so that others can read the truth. In doing so I may come to understand myself, and perhaps with understanding will come an easing of my grief. I pray that God at least will judge me mercifully The Bastard by Anne Ireland. Leap Of Faith Publishing. A saga of love, passion and betrayal. Enjoy the excerpt!

After months of moving, writing and catching up, I've found time to visit this blog and tell you about a new book coming soon from Museitup. It is due in June and is the first of a series called Sister's of the Ring - strong stories of paranormal and genuine historical mystery and romance. The first book is entitled Lady of Shadows and I'll be posting the cover here soon. I didn't want to post too soon, because I don't expect the book out until June - but that's getting nearer.
In the meantime I'm posting a couple of other covers for Anne Ireland books already on sale.
Back with an excerpt in a few weeks.
Also look out for When Darkness Falls/Two paranormal romances in one!
Love from Anne/Linda

A Shocking Scandal is now published at kindle and also at ARE in pdf. The covers for books loaded to ARE are not yet up but they will be. I am loading some of them here for you.
A Shocking Scandle is about a young girl in Paris meeting an Indian prince. His mother was English but there are whispers that she was not married to his mother and this leads Sarah's mother to think a match would not be suitable. Sarah is falling in love and nothing will stop her meeting the man she finds fascinating, even though she is pursued by a rogue of a fortune hunter and he is being followed. Are they both in danger and can their love survive a shocking scandle?
Both books available from ARE and kindle
Echoes of Splendor is an early 20th century book about a girl growing up in Russia. Her father is Prince Ivan's English tutor and a match is impossible but then the revolution happens. Sarah is taken back to England, where she goes to boarding school and becomes a beautiful young woman. This is the first of a series

I am contributing this book as a prize in a contest run by Lady Rosalie Skinner to publicise her new book and others at Museitup - a publisher I have just joined. Later next year they will be publishing two books in the Sisters Of the Ring series. I shall be writing more about this as the months pass but for now I want to help publicise other books by Museitup. So here is my offering - a book I wrote for another publisher.
If you are the winner I hope you enjoy it. I have other free books to give away to readers. email me through my website
