Heart of a Star

A boy, a girl, and a slingshot…

Sometimes, a destiny written in the stars does not become a match made in heaven.

Lord Alexander Cranston, Marquess of Ashton and Lady Isobelle Harrington give new meaning to childhood sweethearts. In fact, there is little love lost between them, eventually culminating in an episode involving a slingshot.

Fifteen years later, Alexander is the Duke of Wilmington. He is ready to claim his soul-mate. Only Isobelle had to overcome a series of tragedies, since she saw him last. Has she forgiven him for their contentious childhood? Is she finally ready to move beyond her past and embrace her destiny? (90,524 Words.)

The Pearl Diver’s Song

What could be worse than discovering your soul-mate during an identity crisis?
Miss Persephone Dortmund’s short life veered in an unexpected direction, due to the actions of a disagreeable neighbor. In order to escape him, she became the nurse and companion of her distant cousin, Lady Isobelle Harrington. Now, she has discovered fate is a terrible match maker. Lady Isobelle’s cousin isn’t a bad man, just not what she envisioned for herself.

Viscount Edward Harrington feels as if his soul has been electrified by desire, but the timing is not ideal. Clandestinely serving king and country in the midst of a war, he is not free to court his one true love; until another family tragedy brings him home for good. One would think having your future lover under the same roof provided a distinct advantage, only Edward finds himself constrained by the distasteful actions of the man who came before him.

Kristal R. DeJong

In addition to being a wife and mother of two grown daughters, I have a background in healthcare and more recently, graphic design. The latter actually makes more sense, because my childhood creative endeavors have their roots in the prolific production of paper ponies. (Yes, I drew lots of horses.) I also developed a love of reading and writing during my formative years. My reading influences are far ranging; and my interest in relationships, history, science and space inspires my stories. Let’s be honest. Regardless of genre labels, stories would not exist without relationships.
