I have a feeling that Granger will be on this ship a lot longer and he might be sent off on a special mission. Just guessing.

Thank you again for another great chapter in Grainger's life. I would also like to express a "Thank You" for the update to Black Widow!

As today is Saturday, I will anticipate another chapter in "Northern Exposure". I have reread all the 'Bridgemont' series up to the beginning of Northern Exposure to refresh my memory on the adventures and characterizations, but now I am forced to await each new update just like your other admirers. Ugh, ugh.:read:

It has been a year since we last heard from George.  Has he been lost at sea or just frozen in the Baltic?  

I'm hoping he is frozen, summer is almost here!

Mark, I cannot tell you how happy I am to see that you are back. 
I have read this series and CAP twice and will reread Bridgemont again. 

I have waited so long. Thank you!

Stay safe.

From Sweden with love :)

This is a wonderful, complex well written story,. It's easy to want to know and appreciate the characters. The last chapter left Granger at a dangerous crossroads on his way to Russia and St. Petersburg,

 

Will the Tsar find him and kill him, imprison him or maim him severely worse than Nelson's injuries ?

Will the contacts Granger made in the Baltic be able to safeguard him?

Will Granger's luck eventually continue to work for him after a painful transition?

What will his friends, supporters, and family do to aid him back in England ?.

I hope the next chapter will appear soon.

how often do you plan on releasing a chapter ... patiently waiting while chomping at the bit

I try to target every two weeks, but I don't always meet that deadline.  That's especially true when I'm in a part of the story that requires a lot of research.  The next chapter is in editing now, though, so it shouldn't be too long.

Read this if you like good prose, with excellent characters who live life to the full and beyond in a historical setting, where history is not completely upended.

Enjoyable, exciting, informative, with sexy-as-hell moments thrown in!

Like Buz above, I binged the entire Bridgemont series to date in one sitting. I could not bring myself to comment on each chapter because I was too busy hitting “next”. Granger has taken over my life! I’m in love with this story. Each step of the journey is satisfying and I relish embracing historical fiction. It may just be all due to the expert crafting of Mr. Arbour in developing gripping characters. And not gonna lie, but you’re gonna get an education. 😳 Thank goodness for Google… I haven’t dipped into CAP yet, but that’s only because I need to rest my eyes; everything is worth reading and I know I’ll enjoy the ride. Excellent series and thank you, Mark Arbour, for continuing to share them with us!
