A lieutenant at large

A lieutenant at large




C. Hampton Jones

The first novel in the Regency Romantic Warriors Series Lochiel Cameron, a 25-year old lieutenant in the 42nd Scottish regiment, has to escort Elisabeth (Lizzie) Campbell from Ayre to Edinburgh. Lizzie is to marry Lord John Montgomery, second son of Jonathan Montgomery, Duke of Rothford. Lord John hates the fact that he has been forced to marry Lizzie. The only reason why he does not get out of this forced marriage is that he will become a Marques of Lorna and Kintyre after his father dies, when he keeps to the promise his father made to his mother on her deathbed. Lizzie Campbell, daughter of Barry Campbell, Baron of Ayre is temperamental and arrogant. When she understands that Lord John did not want to take the trouble to escort her to Edinburgh himself, she starts, out of revenge, a relationship with Lochiel, that goes on beyond the vows between her and Lord John at the altar. After debauching Lizzie, Lord John returns to London. He leaves a devastated Lizzie behind in Edinburgh, who becomes almost a victim to his leery brother and heir to the dukedom Lord Randolph, if not for the help of her faithful servant Mattie and the worried Lady Audrey Agnew, Countess of Loghaire. Lizzie has to flee Edinburgh when she discovers that her nights of passion with Lochiel have not been without consequences.

A major in distress / Part 1: Deceptions




C. Hampton Jones

Volume 2 in the Regency Romantic Warriors Series. Marguerite's atrocious, old and fat, enormously wealthy husband William Alexander is dead. Out of spite she has him buried in the worst place in London: the overflowing church in St. Gilles. When she goes back to live in her own house off Piccadilly she becomes a victim of her manipulative brother Stephen, who manages to marry her off to his heavily indebted lover Lord Philip Agnew, Viscount Morvern, after he has convinced Marguerite that her childhood admirer Hengist Agnew has married during the battles in the Peninsular Wars. Hengist comes 'home' on the night of his brother's and Marguerite's wedding and due to a chambermaid's mistake he is brought to Marguerite's bed. Because he knows that his brother will never touch her, he spends the night with her, setting situations in motion that are hard for him to control. Marguerite does not know of her husband's penchant for male lovers and his disgust of the fair sex and is happy to have a husband who 'does his duty' to her. It's just that suddenly Marguerite seems to have an altogether different husband in the daytime, than at night. Hengist feels the obligation to take care of his dementing father's, the Earl of Loghaire's, affairs. He wonders if he can ever find a solution for his dilemma regarding his brother's wife whom he loves to distraction.

Tincture of Malice




Gregory Bracken

Singapore, 1907. When a group of Singapore’s leading citizens gathers at Government House to greet the the arrival of the Duke of Connaught it seems like a Somerset Maugham story come to life: businessmen, colonial officials, rubber planters, even the Sultan of Belantan has brought his fabled jewelled kris. When one of them is found brutally murdered the next morning suddenly it’s Agatha Christie. Dr Gregory Bracken is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Technical University of Delft and a Research Fellow at the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) in Leiden, both in the Netherlands. He was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1968 and worked for many years as an architect in Bangkok and Singpore. He is the author and illustrator of the popular ‘Walking Tour’ series of architectural city guides and has written a number of academic books as well as novels, including Unusual Wealth, which was a national bestseller in Thailand. www.gregorybracken.com
