The Rebel Series is about love and liberty that takes place between the 18th and 19th Century.

There was a time when swashbuckling men and brave women engaged in daring and romantic adventures, those who fought with bravery and valor. These courageous men and women were looked up to because they defended the people.

“This creative take on a Robin Hood-like story is charming and touching, and teaches some great morals about agency and choice. It reminded me of childhood fairytales of good versus evil, with a nice romance weaved into it.” –Author Charissa Stastny

Rebels of Cordovia webIn The Rebels of Cordovia, a group of men and women who called themselves Robin’s Rebels realize they must help the people survive this oppression. In this battle for freedom, a love story begins to blossom. Daniel, a rogue and a leader of the Freemen, doesn’t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robin’s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be?

After reading this story, Susan Ortlieb from Suko’s Notebook Reviews wrote: “Linda Weaver Clarke writes with passion and grace, and the love story in this book is simply wonderful. In fact, this aspect of the story was the strongest draw for me. (Are love stories set in the past more romantic than those set in the present day?) I thought that Robin and Daniel sounded perfect for each other, and I enjoyed the steady development of their relationship. This charming book was a pleasure to read, and I relished it.”

highwaymanwebThe tales from The Rebel Series have adventure, sweet romance, and delectable kisses. These are stories of love and liberty that takes place between the 18th and 19th Century. In the sequel, The Highwayman of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty but all is not well. One year after Cordovia gains its freedom, a group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.

With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor’s daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor’s daughter, will love override her values?

“Linda Weaver Clarke has a storyteller’s talent for enchanting and mesmerizing the audience. There are also some exciting surprises and twists that will delight the heart. Definitely a must read!” –Cindi Clubbs, Mommasez Reviews

A Cozy Mystery from Audible: Mystery on the Bayou

audiobook-bayouIn this cozy mystery audiobook, you will visit Louisiana, which happens to be the land of bayous! How many of you have eaten crawdads, jambalaya, gumbo, and alligator? Have you seen the lovely swamps and Spanish moss hanging from the trees? In Mystery on the Bayou, you will experience it along with Rick and Amelia, two private eyes, who specialize in missing persons.

“I absolutely love this series! Rick and Amelia are adorable together and I enjoy their relationship more now that they’re married. They still flirt with and tease each other and continue to work on their bucket lists. The mystery holds my attention and keeps me guessing at what’s going on. I love the various places they travel so I feel like I get away for a little while. I’m looking forward to their next case!” –Melanie Valderrama, Mel’s Shelves

In Mystery on the Bayou, Amelia is approached by a woman who is concerned about the son she gave up for adoption sixteen years ago. Millie has been having nightmares that make her fear he is in danger. She petitioned the court to view the sealed records but was refused. Will Amelia and Rick be able to convince the courts to help them? If her son is in danger, will they get there in time?

“I love the clean romance between Rick and Amelia. Even though they’re married now, there’s plenty of flirting and cuteness. They are an adorable couple. They complement each other nicely, both in personality and in work traits. I love the way this author is able to weave an interesting tale in different settings, causing the reader to feel both a part of the story and a part of where ever the mystery is set. The mystery is cozy, not on-the-edge intense, yet it flows well and at a good, steady pace. I’m always excited to see what Ms. Clarke comes up with next!” — Katie Watkins, Katies Clean Book Collection

I lived there for several years and Clarke’s description of the bayous and the food made me want to return.”

“From picturesque scenery to astoundingly vivid sequences, Clarke has it all with this one. The plot was just fast paced enough to keep me hooked without feeling like we were rushing to the conclusion.

I’ve listened to all of the books in this series and the reader gets better and better with each character as the books go by. This one was my favorite in the series though. I’ve enjoyed them all.

“From the first page I was captivated by this book. I had to continue reading, rushing to turn the page, I had to see what next adventure would catch up with Melinda. The plot is interesting: mixing history with fiction, adventure with romance. It is a great honor to highly recommend this book to readers of historical fictions and romance.

Romance, Mystery, and Humor in an Audiobook

In The Mysterious Doll, the two detectives, Amelia Moore and Rick Bonito specialize in missing persons. Pauline Jones is confused why her boyfriend took off without telling a soul where he was going. But that isn’t all. Sam Whitaker is accused of stealing a valuable porcelain doll from the museum. His disappearance makes him look guilty, but Pauline is convinced he is innocent. When Amelia finds Sam, she realizes they need to prove his innocence. Where is the antique doll and who has taken it?

Mysterious Doll webThese stories always have a surprise ending and the culprit is always someone this reader never suspects! Once again the scenes and what the characters are feeling are well described so the readers feel like they are watching the story take place! I feel “The Mysterious Doll” is my favorite of the four books. Maybe because the ending totally caught me off guard.” —Debbie Curto, Dusty Deliberations

The narrator for this story is excellent and The Mysterious Doll is a balance of mystery, clean romance, and humor. This book is the fourth one in the Amelia Moore Detective Series. Even though this is a series, each book can be read separately.

“This has been my favorite book so far. I love how the story weaves effortlessly between their relationship and their case. Amelia’s getting more comfortable with Rick so his romantic side comes out more. There was more kissing and flirting between them in this book than there has been in other books (all clean) and I loved that, too! She’s also willing to be more adventurous with him and they do some creative things as they continue to work on their Bucket Lists. These books each stand on their own but if you want to watch Rick and Amelia’s relationship progress, it’s best to start with the first book and read them all!”Melanie Valderrama, Mel’s Shelves

Treasure of Isian web

“The Treasure of Isian was a stirring tale of an enchanted servant and a handsome prince. The adventures they face together as they search for the fabled treasure of Isian that will grant the bearer any wish they desire. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. The author did a wonderful job pacing the story and connecting me to the characters. Superb story that brought a smile to my face and helped me remember that sometimes, we can overlook the most valuable treasures in life if we’re not careful.” –Author Charissa Stastny

The Treasure of Isian is the first book in The Isian Series. Prince Garin is a brave, proud, adventure-seeking prince.

Romantic Cozy Mystery Book Celebration

lighthouse secretwebA ROMANTIC COZY MYSTERY: In The Amelia Moore Detective Series, you learn all about the life of Amelia Moore and her partner, Rick Bonito. You learn what kind of people they truly are through their bucket lists and what they’re like deep down inside. You even see a slow romance develop between them in each story until the day they finally tie the knot and are married. Now this detective agency will solve new cases as a married couple.

In the Amelia Moore Detective Series, the author delivers a delightful, fairly fast-paced tale in the pursuit of a missing person, for that’s what Amelia’s agency specializes in. This time it is personal, as Rick’s Uncle Antonio Bonito dies in suspicious circumstances. But what do lighthouses have to do with his disappearance? The reader gets a brief education into lighthouses, their importance in the past and the interesting uses they have today.” – Sandra Olshaski, Library of Clean Reads

In The Lighthouse Secret, Amelia Moore is the founder of the Moore Detective Agency and specializes in missing persons. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. Now Amelia and Rick are newly weds and just beginning life as a married couple, which gives them a new insight in their relationship.

In fact, their new assignment is more personal. Rick Bonito’s uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick’s father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and Rick to find out the truth about his uncle.

Amelia’s and Rick’s fresh marriage adds a new dynamic to their case—what happened to his uncle five years ago? Every scrap of information seems to increase their danger as a power hungry lawyer and a mysterious private detective are lurking in the background. The story was well told with surprises and complications threatening their search for the truth. The ending was a complete surprise.” – Andean White, Author
