TO MARRY HIM WILL BE TO BETRAY HER FAMILY

Bessie, the selfless sister of the powerful but stubborn Brunson clan, has sacrificed herself for her family's honor and is at the mercy of the court of King James. Ill-suited to court life, she must confront their mortal enemy, Lord Thomas Carwell, dressed in nothing but borrowed finery and pride.

Underneath the relentless gaze of her captor, she's enticed not only by him but also by the opulence of a world far removed from her own. When the furious king demands her brother's head, Carwell is the only one to whom she can turn. But she must pay the ultimate price for his protection....

The Brunson Clan

The family who will kneel to no one

Re: Captive Of The Border Lord

My aunt and uncle like to tease their son. One year when he
came home for Thanksgiving, they had moved without telling
him! So he got home, but no one was there. They had to give
him on-the-spot directions to their new house.

OH my goodness...every family has stories. HA My 4 yr old grandson wanted to play hide and seek with me so I counted to 10 (slowly) but I could not find him. I was so afraid he went out the back door. I keep calling his name but nothing. Finally I started to cry and he pops us concerned for me. HA He was hiding so deep under the bed up by the headboard that I did not see him. That was frightening!!!

Lots of stories - too little time. Our family LOVES to tease each other and keep those stories alive. But the fun we have - never mean. Happy holidays!!!

No stories that I am able to reveal online for the world to know.

Merry Christmas!!

Well... My parents tease me too much when I was a kid. :) So no stories that I would want to tell!

Our family it was always funny stuff. My dad was an over the road truck driver. He came home on a Saturday morning and no one was home. A good friend of the family was expecting her first baby any day. He went to the neighbors and they weren't home. So he assumed Sharon had her baby and went to the hospital. Ends up we were grocery shopping and the neighbors were just not home. Hearing him tell the story was funny because he really thought the baby was coming! Still makes me laugh 30 years later!

My parents met in a bar on February 29th. My mother always cautioned me to be extra careful on that date.
(

Of course we have stories but one of my favorites has to be
the fact that my mother was the clutziest woman on the planet.
She is the only person I've ever known to close her own nose
in the refridgerator.
(
Donna Antonio 12:43pm December 20, 2012)

We don't have many stories, but we repeat them every year!

My mom has lots of stories she shares about herself, other members of the family, or previous pets she used to have. She has had lots of strange animals including a coyote, a raccoon, a domestic skunk, a lama, several different cats, and many others. My dad used to have a stable and one of his horses was named Hercules and it took the hose she was using to fill his water bucket away from her and hosed her down.

I loved sitting around and listening to my husband and his siblings. He was one of a huge family and they always had amusing stories to tell about their childhood. Merry Christmas!

My family is very small and but highly dysfunctional. My mother takes it upon herself to try to embarrass or insult everyone in attendance.
Happy holidays to all!

When my sister and brothers tell our children stories about our childhood they always think we are exaggerating. When we were young my mother used to give us an ex-lax every Friday evening. She wanted to make sure we were regular I guess. To this day none of us like dark chocolate and I blame the ex-lax for that. We told this story to the kids last year and they were cracking up. Maybe an odd family story, but true.

I'm going to my sisters for Christmas. Happy Holidays.

My parents don't tell much of any stories from their past. Both were in World War II and I think the war just bring bad memories for them.
(

We always bake cookies on Christmas Eve. I wish I had something more interesting to tell!
(
MaryAnne Banks 10:51pm December 20, 2012)

My folks have stories for each of us and they have told them to us many times so we remember them and will be able to tell them to our children. In retern, we have saved memories of our children to pass along to them when they're older as well. :)
(
Donna Holmberg 12:09pm December 21, 2012)

When my sons were young the family's on my husband side would hire Santa on Christmas Eve for all the kids. My youngest was only 6 months old while sitting on Santa's lap he grabbed hold of his beard and pulled. Yes the baby pulled it off and all the other kids started crying. "Scott hurt Santa, Scott hurt Santa"! They were running around screaming scared to death. That night I didn't think I would ever get the older son asleep.
This year for Christmas I'm only baking sugar cut out cookies for the family. Getting older and I'm disabled it's hard to mix, roll and cut the cookies. The hands, legs and feet hurt real bad to stand there and do all the baking like I use to. I'm having help for the cookies my son is helping. Yes the one who hurt Santa! Happy Holidays!

So many stories!! I love learning all about the antics the
ancestors got up to. My Grandmother was a maid in a castle:
think Downton Abbey.
(
Mary Preston 7:50am December 21, 2012)

My Dad loves to tell us the story about when he was little it didn't take much
to entertain him. His Dad would give him a bucket of water and a brush and
he would "paint" the garage. Of course this falls into the back in my day
story group.
(
Ann Sheiring 8:43am December 21, 2012)

I come from storytellers both true and false. I keep that going through my children and hopefully it will continue.
My grandmother once told me the story of her father getting the land that they live on...
They came by cover wagons and were attacked by Indians. They fought them off day and night (enter sound effects and vivid details), until the Indians went away knowing the strength of the family they encountered. I told this story in second grade to my teacher, who then called my mother about the amazing way it was told and the great rich history - my mother laughed, it was just a story to tell me by her mother.
(
Carla Carlson 11:45am December 21, 2012)

Well, my Daddy had to walk two miles each day in snow higher than he was to get to school And then we had the dragon flies that he told us were stinging needles and would sew our mouths shut if we talked or the earwigs crawling in our ears and making us go crazy. He had a ton. Sad part is I believed them about the bugs for years. I have an unnatural phobia of anything that crawls or flies.
(

When I was about 4, one of my cousins and I walked to the corner grocery store... it started raining on the walk back home and it was thundering... my cousin told me elephants were chasing us in order to get be to run home... She loved to tell that story!
Merry Christmas.

We go to my sister-in-law's house every Christmas Eve. She, my husband, and their two other brothers always tell tales about when they were growing up or when their kids or grandkids were growing up.
(
Cathy Phillips 5:16pm December 22, 2012)

We (the kids) love Christmas so much and the happy spirit and feelings that the holiday invokes that we now keep our Christmas tree up all year long (although we do take the ornaments down and reserved that for the actual holiday).
