Books Info:

The Quiet Woman: A Novel free pdf In the early 19th Century, Adelaide Lenormand, a fortune teller popular with the Paris elite, conjures a golem for Napoleon Bonaparte during a dinner party. But something goes wrong. It looks nothing like the manservant she promised. Even worse, immediately after it arrives, the golem steals the Emperor's Emerald Scarab from a chain around his neck and mysteriously disappears. Minutes later in London, Elise Dubois, an ER nurse from Tucson, is found sprawled in front of The Quiet Woman Public House. She's wearing nothing but tattered shorts, a sports bra, and one pink running shoe. Gripped in her fist is an Egyptian jewel, the scarab. Now Bonaparte's Minister of Police is breathing down Adelaide's neck while her wealthy clients are abandoning her. The women of La SociA(c)tA(c) d'Isis, so wickedly encouraging when she'd first launched her plot, remain silent to her pleas for help. Adelaide has no choice but to find the golem and restore her reputation. Troubled by nightmares of a wild-eyed French woman and worried she might be losing her mind, Elise tries to blend in at the pub. But blending in is not her forte. She knows the moment the opportunity arises she'll stop at nothing to return to 21st Century Arizona, even if that means breaking the heart of the one man who understands her. The Quiet Woman is the first in the Emerald Scarab Adventure series aimed at lovers of hard-edged heroines. In a story of time travel, romance, and fortune, anything can happen.
