Bethany House
Lydia Pallas’ family came to the United States from Greece and she was excited to attend school. However, her Greek father, Turkish mother and younger brother never came back from a day of fishing on the leaky Ugly Kate, leaving her alone in Boston as a young girl who barely knew English. Fifteen years later, she has carved out a secure and predictable life for herself working as a translator for the U.S. Navy in the Boston Harbor office at the end of the 1800s.

When Alexander Bane comes and offers her translation work, her carefully orchestrated world starts to turn upside down as she finds herself growing attracted to him. Bane is driven to end the opium trade and has to fight the love growing between them.

Bane is forced to turn to Lydia for help, but the mission is one that will test her wits and courage.

Bane was introduced in Elizabeth Camden’s previous novel “The Lady of Bolton Hill."

"Against the Tide" (Bethany House, $14.99) is a novel with suspense, faith and the possibility of love.

I'm surprised Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson is not on this list.

One of my favorite love stories is one men enjoy too: The Scarlet Pimpernel.
