Beyond All Reason: Book I of The ‘Beyond’ Trilogy
Meet Kathryn MacLean: sister of a southern rebel militia leader and Colonel Jason Tarrington: a malicious British Green Dragoon officer recently arrived from England under King George’s direct orders to suppress the insubordinate nature of his Southern Colonies and bring them to heel.
Set in the Carolinas during the Revolutionary War, this epic tale chronicles the lives of two dynamic individuals thrown together by an odd twist of fate, irrevocably sealing their destinies. Beyond All Reason is a moving account of conflicting passions and betrayed loyalties which drive a devoted brother and sister to opposite sides in an ugly war.
Enjoy a richly woven tapestry of both real and fictitious characters as Kathryn and Jason’s obsessive cause drives them relentlessly to succeed in a bloody war they will ultimately lose – but can they survive? For theirs is a love beyond all reason. With its rich narrative, Beyond All Reason is a must-read for history and adventure fans – or those merely wishing to immerse themselves in an unforgettable story of enduring passion.
Beyond All Odds: Book II of The ‘Beyond’ Trilogy
As the acrid smoke clears in the aftermath of the battle at Guilford Courthouse, North Carolina, Lieutenant Jackson, a British dragoon officer, finds himself miraculously still amongst the living. Scanning the myriads of crumpled bodies strewn across the oozing, red mud, he discovers a personal loss of staggering magnitude. But grieving must wait — for he has a sacred promise to fulfill: save an innocent child, considered to be a “valuable prize” by either side, from becoming a pawn in this ugly war.
Beyond The Horizon: Book III of The ‘Beyond’ Trilogy
With Lord Cornwallis’ surrender, the Revolutionary War is finally declared over. However, to the proud citizens of Charleston, struggling to forget past humiliation suffered under his Lordship, ongoing British presence stands as a bitter reminder. Neither have they forgiven or forgotten Colonel Tarrington and his wife.
The Tarringtons, just returned from England, are embroiled in a dangerous rescue mission. Upon achieving success, they wish to be forgotten, fade into the background and begin life over. Danger lurks on all sides. Friends, former dragoons, even family: who to trust – where to go? Could their answer lie in the wilderness beyond the horizon? A powerfully written, multi-faceted, emotional blockbuster…with an ending you will never forget.
