Cry of the Brethren

Please join me in congratulating John Colwell on the publication of his late mother's historical romance Cry of the Brethren! John is working to publish all of his mother's manuscripts, and I had the honor of helping him design the first cover. Here's the book description:

Jessie Trent, stolen from her wedding altar, finds herself a fugitive from the Brethren and her fate in the hands of a buckskin-clad stranger and his raiding party.

Lucas Wakefield realizes he’s put the frightened young woman in danger when he saved her from the cruel fate as Oram Doud’s latest victim. With the Brethren of the Aaronites cult in angry pursuit, he escapes with his prize over frozen Lake Michigan and deep into the mainland.

Hiding out in an isolated cabin, the couple is forced to spend the bitter winter in close confinement. As the cold nights grow longer, Jessie soon finds herself falling in love with her mysterious kidnapper.

Lucas didn’t plan on becoming enamored of the beautiful woman and fights the growing need to claim her for his own.

Their happiness is threatened by a jealous woman and a cult determined to exact revenge. The winds of fate converge, threatening to destroy everything they’ve built. Against all odds, Lucas must fight to save Jessie from the Cry of the Brethren.

Cry of the Brethren is available in ebook and print editions on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Smashwords (where you can also read an interview with John about his mother). Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and learn more about Linda and her novels on Facebook.
