Author Elizabeth Johns: SERIES OF ELEMENTS

SERIES OF ELEMENTS







Book One




When two people have walked through fire, can love bring the healing and help they need?



Spurned by love, Lady Margaux Winslow, daughter of the Marquess of Ashbury, has no use for the other eligible gentlemen of London. Despite her beauty, her sharp tongue soon earns her a reputation as a dragon. Convincing her parents to let her retreat to their Scottish estate, a home for abandoned young women, Margaux feels she can do something meaningful with her life. At their wits' end, her parents believe a few months in seclusion will teach her to appreciate her privileged existence, and accept the next gentleman of worth who offers for her. Margaux has no plans to yield. But neither she nor her parents bargain for the proximity of the gorgeous, blue-eyed Scotsman on the neighbouring estate.

Gavin Craig, content with his life as a country doctor, is unexpectedly thrust into the world of aristocratic society after the accidental deaths of his brother and nephews. With all the duties his new title entails, and his adoption of three orphans, Gavin desperately needs a wife. She should preferably be a lady, trained since birth to manage a noble house, servants and family. His former disdain for a marriage of convenience has been rapidly overcome by the colossal task of learning to run a large Scottish barony. One lovely candidate is right next door...except that she's inexplicably determined to be a spinster...


Book Two




Along with her triplet sisters, Lady Beaujolais Winslow is a celebrated beauty, but after five seasons she has yet to find a match she finds tolerable. Since her father refuses to arrange a marriage, it is rumoured in London society that she is holding out for a duke.

Benedict Stanton, Duke of Yardley, vowed never to marry again when his first marriage ended in a scandalous divorce. Having retreated to the country for nearly a decade, he is thought to be a cold-hearted recluse. Now faced with leaving his dukedom to the Crown for lack of an heir, he sets out to find a bride in a manner more suited to generations past—through his solicitor.

When Lady Beaujolais receives one of the Duke’s impersonal proposals, she rejects it out of hand and in considerable anger. Little does she know she is soon to be forced into his company every day…


Book Three



Five years have passed since Lady Anjou Winslow, one of the triplet daughters of the Marquess Ashbury, watched her love, Lieutenant Gardiner, leave for the war in America. They were secretly married just before his departure, and though the War Office has declared him dead, she refuses to believe it. No trace of him was ever found.
Private enquiry agents, hired by Lord Ashbury, have searched to no avail, yet something inside Anjou refuses to believe her husband is dead. Despite her fears of the ocean, she therefore convinces her brother to escort her on the long voyage to America.
Captain Edward Harris, the Wind’s brusque master, does not want her on his ship. Nevertheless, he consents to her passage after her desperate pleas. As Anjou and Charles search for Lieutenant Gardiner, more comes to light than either expected. Will Edward somehow stand in the way of her lost love’s return?

  1. I just found Through The Fire on Amazon kindle. I loved it so much I read it in day, and then had to start on Melting The Ice immediately. I loved both books, in particular the references and quotes from Pride and Prejudice. I enjoyed the humour. I'm excited for Autumn, and to read With The Wind.

  10. The only problem with reading this series is now I have to somehow convince my husband to leave the technology field, and become a sea captain.

  11. Hello, just wanted to say I read your story in A Season in London and then last Sunday started reading Surrender the Past. Reading one a day (and not sleeping nearly enough! ^_~) I have now completed all the Abbot-Loring-Winslow books currently published and I so (obviously!) enjoyed your wonderful and rare writing! I can't wait to read your next book - After the Rain sounds great! And there are lots of other peripheral characters waiting for their moment. I love the series following the same characters - I've only read one other series that did this and not to such a fascinating and continuing extent. Love your work! Thank you so much!

    I personally would love to see a book about Sir Charles... Perhaps with Lady Mary from Seasons of Change? And this is coming from someone in their late 20s - they were both such interesting characters.

    1. Thank you for such humbling words! I am so glad you enjoyed the books! I've always enjoyed books that are related myself, so I am happy to hear you aren't tired of the characters ;) what an excellent idea about Sir Charles and Lady Mary...
      Best, EJ

  12. You are most welcome! Thank you for the hours of enjoyment! I look forward to rereading the ones already published, and I can't wait to read your next books!

  13. I am so excited about the next book, After the Rain. I can't find any mention of it on Amazon and am anxious to know when it will be released. Will you continue with the other characters introduced in the first 3 books. I have added them to all my devices and plan to re-read Fire, Ice and Wind before the next book is published. You are an amazing author. I'm going to start the Loring-Abbott series today!

    1. Penne, thank you so very much! Yes, the characters are being continued (explained a little more in the Descendants tab) but Out of the Darkness features Catriona Craig (available in the Hearts of Courage anthology or as paperback now) and After the Rain features Seamus Craig and Christelle, who is related to another character :) it is scheduled to release in May.

  14. I've read all three of the Series of Elements books and absolutely love them. I also just finished listening to the audible edition of Through the Fire. I hope that you have plans to release the other two books in audio format. These books are definitely on my reread/listen lists. I also have the Loring-Abbott series in audio format.
