CURL HOYER WAS A MAN WHO COULD NOT BE FOOLED… EXCEPT THIS ONCE.
1955. The unstoppable sea and an immovable lighthouse tower that holds the key to several lives, past, present, and future.
Approaching middle-age and desperately lonely, Lighthouse Keeper Curl Hoyer is pining to find a wife, the unique partner just right for him.
When alluring photo-journalist Henne arrives to do a story on him and the coastal facility, his prayer seems answered at last. Seductive and intriguing, she quickly makes him fall in love with her — all according to plan.
What is that plan?
At first blush, it appears nothing more than a desire to corral a man of unusual character. Soon, it’s uncovered to be a devilish scheme for revenge, payback for wounds nursed since adolescence. Henne intends both Curl and the tower the ultimate harm.
Why? What’s the mysterious connection between the pair that reaches back 20 years? How can a haunting seaside tower bring them together for one final showdown? And can Curl uncover the plan in time to save himself and the vital ship’s guide, standing guard for three centuries?

*There is no profanity or explicit sex; only suggestive, very discreet lovemaking once, of the sort you would see in a 1950’s mainstream women’s novel.
Thank you very much indeed for your time and consideration. I know you are very busy and have many requests like this one. I’m grateful for taking time with mine.
I wish you the best,

Blurb: A shared secret from their past could destroy their future…
Northumbria, 1077. In the years following William the Conqueror’s harrying of the North, Lady Alfreya of Tyrswick returns to her family home after seven years in exile. But instead of returning victorious as her dead father had promised, she returns defeated by Baron Sebastian de la Croix, the Norman who rules her lands.
To save her gravely ill brother’s life, Alfreya offers herself hostage to her enemy. As Alfreya gets to know her new husband, she finds he’s not the monster she feared, and their marriage of convenience soon becomes a bond of passion. But Sebastian is a man with a secret—one that could destroy him.
As a series of brutal murders haunt their nights, the man who betrayed Alfreya’s father returns claiming to be her betrothed. He has learned Sebastian’s secret and will use it to further his own ambition—using Sebastian’s own family—which will destroy Sebastian and mark him a traitor, and plunge an unprepared England into war with the Scots…

Synopsis (Blurb) of book: Atlas is a war hero caught between his wife’s love or saving the survivors of earth. Earth has been destroyed by unknown forces leaving it in ruins. The closest thing to organized leadership is the packs of scavengers that take what they want. To keep his wife safe he builds an army. To give her the life she wants he fights. To win back their home he must go to war. But, she doesn’t believe that his sacrifice is for her and his selflessness is driving them apart. As he struggles for his wife’s devotion he is caught in a war with a tyrannical dictator. To win the war and his wife safety he must give her up and fight a war where defeat is expected. To fight a dictator he must become a warlord. Hovering over everything is the threat of an alien invasion which Atlas slowly pieces together through unreliable stories told by the survivors. He soon learns that his fight is only a small part in a war that has been raging for hundreds of years and reaches throughout the galaxy. A gritty and realistic feel blends with minimal use of science fiction elements to create a rich, believable contemporary story of one soldier’s heart-wrenching post-apocalyptic journey to keep his family alive.
