Having risen out of the slums of Dublin to build a multinational gourmet chocolate business, Frances "Frankie" Hogan has settled for being respected, envied, and rich beyond belief...but never happy.

Liam's feelings for Frankie have never faded, but their years apart have brought complications, including a secret that could drive Frankie away.

“This tender love story between two wounded people whom God brings together for healing is a book readers will enjoy anytime—but especially at Christmas!” —Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and A Voice in the Wind Amid war and the fading dream of the Confederacy, a wounded soldier and a destitute widow discover the true meaning of Christmas—and sacrificial love. Recently widowed, Aletta Prescott struggles to hold life together for herself and her six-year-old son. With the bank threatening to evict them, she discovers an advertisement for the Women’s Relief Society auction and applies for a position—only to discover it’s been filled. Then a chance meeting with a wounded soldier offers another opportunity—and friendship. But can Aletta trust this man? Captain Jake Winston, a revered Confederate sharpshooter, suffered a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga. When doctors deliver their diagnosis, Jake fears losing not only his greatest skill but his very identity. As he heals, Jake is ordered to assist with a local Women’s Relief Society auction. He respectfully objects. Kowtowing to a bunch of “crinolines” isn’t his idea of soldiering. But orders are orders, and he soon discovers this group of ladies—one, in particular—is far more than he bargained for. Set against the backdrop and history of the Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee, Christmas at Carnton is a story of hope renewed and faith restored at Christmas.

How much would you gamble for love? Rufus Lovell has been thrust unexpectedly into riches, and gained a new set of friends who delight in wagers and bets, with nothing too small or too big to gamble on - even marriage. So when a tipsy party joke becomes a wager on Rufus' marriage, he knows he should said no. But Juliana Honeyfield, the unwitting and unknowing focus of the gamble, is not the simple and malleable young woman that Rufus' friends take her for. She demands a lot more from her acquaintances, and the challenge of understanding this intriguing woman and keeping the truth of the wager from her starts to wear thin on Rufus. Especially when his belief in marriage has already been so greatly rocked, and his family history is sunk in crime, alcoholism, and prison. Will it be possible for Rufus to charm the winning Juliana? Does he owe her the truth about his initial interest in her? And who will eventually win the Michaelmas wager? A Michaelmas Wager is a charming Regency romance novella about the unlikely consequences of spur of the moment decisions. ***Over 100 reviews across Amazon!*** "Thus begins a wonderful romance that, at times, reminded me of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing"." --- Amazon reviewer.

This was the first book by Emily Murdoch that I've read, but it won't be the last!" --- Amazon reviewer. "I didn't have too high expectations since it was a free short story. But I was pleasantly surprised by this one . . ." --- Amazon reviewer. "Fantastic short story with a great ending! This wager is the first of its kind for me and I'm so delighted to have read this! This story had a great plot twist that I never saw coming and even had me gasping! Wonderful read, can't wait to see what's next!!!" --- Amazon reviewer. "The development of their relationship is sweet and sincere but unfortunately based on a wager which when revealed causes troubles between the couple. I really enjoy this time period, perfect for Jane Austen fans and I think the author did a good job capturing the societal dictates of the time period. I definitely would read more of her work." --- Amazon reviewer. "More please, Emily Murdoch!" --- Amazon reviewer.
