Enjoy Hearts Through History’s debut anthology—The Eve of Love, as we take you through three hundred years of family tradition—a New Year’s Eve Costume Ball where love conquers all.
Our chronicles begin in Tudor England with Katherine and William, and span centuries as tales of their descendants dance and romance through time with heat from sweet to scorching. We’ll entice you with elaborate masquerades, all-encompassing love matches, and a tapestry of settings that start in Tudor England, journey through the US Colonial and Civil War Eras, Victorian London and Tokyo, and conclude back in the United States on the cusp of the 20th century.

Elf says: What’s it all about?
I have a confession to make: I adore the story of The Christmas Unicorn. It’s based on a tale my father told us every year on Christmas Eve. He swears it’s true.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR I’ve been an actress, a journalist, a communications specialist, and the worst mathematician the insurance industry ever experienced. Fortunately, now I’m a dedicated kitten mom (Please subscribe to my very infrequent newsletter, The Writer’s Cat, for more information on them.), and the author of “Regency romance with a Gothic twist.” For more information, go to http://www.elfahearn.com/
The heroine, Ellie, is smart and spunky, compassionate and determined. The story-line is well-thought and exciting. Ms. Ahearn brings the English countryside to life- a wonderful read!
In Lord Hugh Davenport’s opinion, women of the ton perpetually hide behind a mask of deception. That’s hard for Ellie Albright, the daughter of an earl, to swallow-especially since she’s disguised herself as a stable hand to get back the prized stallion her father sold to Hugh to pay a debt. If Hugh learns her true identity she’ll lose the horse and her family will go bankrupt. Somehow, though, losing Hugh’s affection is beginning to seem even worse. Already only a step away from being snagged in her own web of lies, Ellie’s deceit threatens to spin out of control when Hugh’s mother invites Ellie and her sisters to a house party. Now Ellie has to scramble to keep Hugh from knowing she’s the stable girl he wants to marry, while simultaneously trying to win his trust as herself. Can she keep her costumes straight long enough to save her family? And even if she does, will it be worth losing his love?
