PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS:-
The Pendragon Legacy

“A romantic mystery and a cursed ring lead the granddaughter of a Cornish fisherman into the heart of the British upper classes…   Fiona Trevelick had always stood out in her small Cornish fishing village. Her mother Anna and Aunt Nan never quite fit in with the locals either. As a young girl, Fiona challenged the future Earl of Pendarron for the right to be looking for smugglers' treasure in a cave. When they grew to be adults, Lord Tyson never forgot the fiery redhead with the sharp tongue.  Joanna Challis draws together two very determined characters from opposite sides of society. She examines their situations and explains their actions giving the reader a very clear perspective. At this point a mystery is hinted at and the suspense builds up. Be prepared for some evil family members to emerge and try to cover up their dark secrets. Fiona is unaware of her constant peril.  The romance and family secrets link to a black opal ring which is believed to be cursed. It was rumoured to have belonged to the ill-fated Marie Antoinette and smuggled out of France during the Revolution. Once owned by the Pendarrons, it has not been seen for many years. Joanna Challis had me on the edge of my chair as the pieces start to fall into place. This book is written in a classic style, which will appeal to historical fans and traditional regency readers who love a plot with many dark surprises. Joanna Challis is an author to keep a watch out for and for this reader, The Pendragon Legacy  is a definite keeper! Highly recommended reading!”  ~ Naomi of Fallen Angel Reviews


Excerpt

My fingers caressed the face of the journal again and came to the ring. The ring. A thing of beauty… and of danger. The unusual black opal stared up at me, once proudly worn by Marie Antoinette, the late Queen of France. I thought of each of its previous owners and how their lives had ended so tragically. A legacy bound us… the legacy had brought the ring to my mother… and now to me. Would I share their fate too?
