Only one man’s love
Will redeem her past. . .
Condemned to a future of shame and regret, Marnie Jones battles to keep going one day at a time. Divested of hope, she’s all but given up when a handsome stranger arrives in town. Desperate for the marshal to ride out of Pendleton, Marnie fears he’ll rekindle the embers of her broken dreams into a roaring flame before he leaves.
Married to his career, US Marshal Lars Thorsen avoids relationships of any kind. Spending his days transporting prisoners, guarding political figures, and chasing down fugitives, he doesn’t have room in his life for feelings or emotions. Especially not the tender, protective feelings stirred by the woman who wants him or the two orphans who need him.

“I don’t know how many times I have to tell you, I’m not going with you today.” Marnie fisted her hands on her hips and blocked his entrance to her room.
 x
“Yes, you are. Put on your hat and let’s go.” Lars nudged her aside then brazenly strode to her closet and pulled out the hat he liked the best, a cream curved-brim hat with cream and pink silk roses that matched the gown she wore. “Put that on.”
 x
“No.” Marnie leaned against the dresser and glowered. “And you can’t bully me into doing what you want, Lars Thorsen.”
 x
“Maybe not, but I can ask nicely.” Lars lifted one of her hands and kissed the back of it, keeping his hot blue gaze pinned to hers. He saw the shift in her eyes as the shutters lifted. The frown she wore softened on a sigh and he knew he had her.
 x
After kissing her other hand, he moved on to her right cheek, then her left, followed by her nose. “Will you please accompany the children and me to church? Even if you won’t do it for me or yourself, do it for those two youngsters. They’ll be disappointed if you don’t come.”
 x
Marnie closed her eyes and took a deep breath. “I don’t think you realize what you’re asking, what you’re doing.”
 x
“I’m fully aware of what I’m doing.” Lars momentarily forgot about Easter, the Webster kids, and everything else as his attention focused on Marnie’s lips. He lowered his head and kissed both corners before gently caressing her mouth with his — teasing, enticing, pleading. “Please, sweet thing? Please go with us?”
 x
Nearly undone by Lars’ tender kisses, Marnie snatched the hat from his hand and positioned it on her head. Jabbing in a hatpin, she rammed her fingers into lacy cream gloves and grabbed a reticule she saved for special occasions.
 x
Pointing to the door, she shook her head. “Arguing with you is utterly pointless.”
 x
“Yep. Glad you figured that out.” Lars’ wicked grin made her smile and she held his hand as they descended the stairs. “One way or another, I always get what I want.”

• Demonetization made this book a reality: Capri had left his job with a view of becoming an entrepreneur. He wrote part-time initially as he had been working on this plot for more than 2 years. But with demonetization happening within few months of his leaving the job, he decided to shift his focus to full-time writing and that’s how this book became a reality

About the Author:

 

In July 2016, when Capri’s career was at an all-time high, he quit his job and decided to pursue one of his under-40 goals and that was to pen a novel. His first novel – “Then the doorbell rang”, which is in fiction genre, has been published by Leadstart Publishing. His book has been released on Amazon and has received great responses.
Capri’s philosophy in life is simple – Plan your life rather than follow a plan. Whilst this might sound contradictory, if you re-read the statement you would be able to understand the subtle difference. Planning is a continuous process whilst a plan is a static one. At different points in one’s life, one must be able to revisit his life and re-sync it with life’s changed priorities and circumstances.
And to be successful, it is very important to be passionate about what you do. “Passion is elixir for the soul” is something he truly believes in. This coupled with the right mentoring leads to an assured success.
Capri is keen to share his perspectives with the world through his writings and talks.

“Garrett, I’m sorry, but I’d rather not go to your house looking like this. I don’t want to upset Nora.” Some little part of her had died the moment Garrett figured out who she was. It was one thing to be dressed like a man when no one knew she was really a woman. It was an entirely different matter for Garrett to see her dressed that way, knowing the truth.
 x
As much as she tried to deny it, she wanted to look nice when he was around. She knew she wasn’t beautiful, but something about seeing him smile at her with his silvery eyes glowing like liquid metal made her feel feminine and attractive. The very last person she’d want to see her dressed like a man was Garrett Nash.
 x
He’d not only seen her, but also seen right through her guise. She’d have to ask him sometime how he so easily figured out who she was. Right after he started speaking to her again.
 x
“Fine,” he said, pointing a hand down the road toward the Erickson farm. “Get yourself home and be prepared to tell me all about your little adventure later. And don’t you ever try something like this again. You hear me?”
 x
Since he was already fuming, she let her temper rise, too. She didn’t appreciate the way he bossed her around, especially since her trip to town resulted in finding a herd of sheep to purchase. That was the whole point of her adventure and she was inordinately pleased with her successful efforts.
 x
“I appreciate your assistance, Mr. Nash, truly I do. However, I’m perfectly capable of taking care of myself. I’m a woman grown with a mind of her own, a strong constitution, and no man to answer to. Don’t feel the need to give yourself the job because I’m not looking to fill the vacancy!”

Snippets from Sunil’s travel:

One of the most famous things in Copenhagen is legendry sculpture of “the little mermaid”. Arguably it is the most photographed lady on earth. The story goes like the little mermaid falls in love with a prince. She wants to give up her life as a mermaid and live a life like human for the prince to accept her. She goes to a witch and the witch gives her a potion. After drinking the potion the mermaid loses her tongue and becomes mute. She gets the legs, though it pains and bleeds a lot when she walks on the land. The sad end of the story is that the prince does not love her even then and she keeps on waiting.

There have been multiple versions of the stories with some disputes but all agree to the sad end.

A Danish friends told me that the little mermaid would be sent to China that year for some world exhibition. More than anything, he was worried if Denmark will get the same statue back or too many of them given China’s reputation for copy and mass production.

 

The moment our train entered Venice, the experience was overwhelming. It was like moving into the sea. The great thing about this city is – it is preserved so well and gives a good glimpse of the medieval Europe. It is a totally different way of life in the city.There are no motor vehicles. The only mode of communication there, are water-taxis that run like bus services in any other city. Most of the house doors and windows open into sea water and the water is unbelievably clean and fresh. It must have been a thriving center of culture, art and religion – it still is. It is also a wonder in town planning and civic amenities.

The city is something that will always leave an imprint on anyone who visits it – there is probably no other city like Venice in the world.

The light from the bathroom splays across the bed, illuminating her features just enough for me to see the way the blush heats the soft planes of her face.

Excerpt

CHAPTER 22

Friday August 13, 1965

Stoneford

Charlie couldn’t find Mr. Deeley.

She’d gone back downstairs with Justin and had walked with him to the drawing room, where the party was now in full-swing. Arabella, in her blue silk pyjamas, flitted between little gatherings of people, some standing, some having made themselves at home on the antique sofa or on similarly-upholstered armchairs.

“Buffet in the dining room!” she announced. “Two chefs, darlings! All the way from London! And we’ve got a lovely marquee tent set up outside for dancing…Giles’s band’s come to play for us!”

Giles himself was lounging in a deep armchair beside the fireplace, wearing a black velvet suit, with a navy blue shirt and a purple brocade tie, surrounded by admirers: three impossibly-thin girls with lavish makeup and long, straight hair who might have been models; a bearded gentleman in a pink fur coat who was describing his latest project—an art installation involving a square block of concrete on top of which he’d placed a bent fork; and a young man with a pudding-bowl mop of hair who looked uncannily like Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones.

The air in the drawing room was filled with the smell and haze of marijuana and hash. In another corner sat a large woman in a flowing kaftan and sandals, strumming an autoharp which she held to her shoulder like a child needing to be freed of wind. She seemed to be entertaining no one in particular, and yet an audience was beginning to gather in front of her as they were introduced to one another.

Arabella was in full hostess mode, dragging Justin into their midst.

“Darling,” she said, to a distinguished-looking gentleman who appeared to be someone who did something important at the BBC, “do meet my lovely Justin…and of course Portia—Lord Wintle’s daughter—”  Lord Wintle, Charlie recalled, was a British ambassador who was posted somewhere that was in the thick of a coup. His daughter had a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other and was wearing knee boots and a see-through knitted dress that clung to her lithe body like plastic wrap.

“Charmed,” said Portia, introducing, in turn, her friends Binky and Pierre—Binky being the daughter of an existential poet serving a sentence in prison for setting fires, and Pierre the son of an American actor who’d been blacklisted for being a Communist and had fled to England, where he’d found work as a talking milk bottle on a children’s radio program.

And still, no sign of Mr. Deeley. Or Charlie’s mum. Or Tony and William and Astrid. Charlie turned away in frustration and negotiated her way through the pop stars and the adult children from titled families who were chummy with the Boswell-Thorpes, the glammy socialites dripping in diamonds, the boutique owners and the clothing designers and the actors and actresses and a fellow dressed all in black who was taking candid photographs of everyone without their permission because they all secretly longed to be featured in one of his fabulous avant-garde exhibitions.

She found the servants’ stairs behind the breakfast room and went down into the cellar, thinking she might find them there. But the cellar seemed to be mostly abandoned, with all of its doors locked. Even the big 19th century kitchen, which in 1825 had been bustling with a cook and her assistant and assorted serving staff, was inaccessible and dark, the Boswell-Thorpes having installed a much more convenient—and functional—kitchen upstairs, beside the breakfast room.

Annoyed, and still frustrated, Charlie made her way back to the main floor and outside, to see if Mr. Deeley was in the big marquee tent that had been erected next to the manor’s west wing.

* * *

Shaun had, in fact, located both his father and Tony Quinn. His father had been lingering in a hallway in the west wing of the manor, between the dining room with the sitting room. It was not so much a connecting passage as a room of its own, with a lavish oriental Axminster carpet of blue, red and gold, and ceiling-to-floor leaded windows embedded with patterns of stained glass and, occupying pride of place, several full sets of armour, assembled and erected as if ready to do battle.

“But this is marvellous,” William said, spying Shaun as he entered from the dining room. “This is beyond anything I have ever beheld…if only Lord and Lady Ellington could be here to share my wonder.”

“I suspect,” Shaun observed, “that if Lord and Lady Ellington were here, they might be confounded by your mingling with the master and mistress and their numerous guests.”

“As am I,” William confessed. “I find I am awkward in their presence. I would feel far more at home below stairs with the servants.”

“However, there are no servants,” Shaun provided, “other than Mr. Brindlesworth, the butler, who is on loan from the Boswell-Thorpes’s house in London.”

“This is by far the most discomforting of my experiences,” said William, shaking his head. “No staff and no household routine. No servants to look after the daily needs of the family. A complete absence of structure. I have met people tonight who, in my time, would be considered beneath contempt. And yet they are treated with reverence by ladies and gentlemen of good breeding, with titles, education and property.”

“These are all things which I have, myself, also observed,” Shaun replied. “And my reactions, at first, were very much the same as yours. But I have grown accustomed to the discrepancies. It is refreshing once again to be reminded of the time I originally came from—and for this, I owe you many thanks.”

“You are most welcome,” William said, surprised. “Do you know where Mr. Quinn is?”

 

“I do, in fact. Would you like me to take you to him?”

Teenage girls are being murdered in Los Angeles. Four in one week. The latest victim isn’t like the others—not a runaway or prostitute—but a nanny working for a celebrity couple.
