An Heir of Uncertainty

An Heir of Uncertainty is now available at Amazon and all major e-book retailers.

I’m so excited–it’s release day for my newest regency, An Heir of Uncertainty!

A mystery wrapped in a romance, it’s the story of the two possible claimaints for a title and the dazzling fortune that comes with it: Colonel Win Vaughan, distant cousin to the late Earl of Radbourne, and the child that Lina, the earl’s young widow, is carrying. Only one  can inherit, so when danger begins to swirl around Lina and her unborn child, can she possibly trust Win?

You can order An Heir of Uncertainty here. I hope you enjoy it!

A Tryst With Trouble is out!

by on Sep.23, 2013, under Author news, Bookshelf

It’s release day for A Tryst With Trouble!

A Tryst With Trouble cover

London, 1820

Lady Barbara Jeffords is certain her little sister didn’t murder the footman, no matter how it looks…and no matter what the Marquess of Beningbrough–Ben–might say. She can scarcely help it if his cousin is the only other suspect. In fact, she wants nothing to do with ruggedly handsome Ben; he reminds her of all the insensitive clods who passed her over.

For years Ben has been dogged by painful gossip about his father’s rumored homosexuality. His gruff shell hides a passionate nature, and he’s also fiercely loyal—which is why he’ll never let the clever and beguiling Lady Barbara pin a murder on his cousin.

Sparks fly as the two compete to defend their loved ones. But as strange new clues emerge that neither can decipher alone, they have no choice but to compare notes and sleuth in tandem. A tenuous bond develops that soon faces its toughest challenge when Ben himself becomes a suspect…

A Tryst With Trouble received a 4-star review from Romantic Times Book Reviews, which called Ben and Barbara “a surprising couple who will entertain with their Nick and Nora-esque antics.”

A Tryst With Trouble is available as an e-book at Carina Press and all major e-book retailers. It’s also available as an audiobook narrated by Lizzie Owensby. To order or learn more, click here.

All About Romance review (I’m a “Desert Isle Keeper”!)

by on Sep.06, 2013, under Author news, Reviews

I’m pleased and proud to report that reviewer Caz of the wonderful All About Romance site has reviewed Lord of Secrets and given it the site’s highest rating, “Desert Isle Keeper.”

The review says, “I found myself tearing up several times in the final section of the book – it was very emotional, but never melodramatic or over the top,” and gives Lord of Secrets “a whole-hearted thumbs up.” Click here to jump to the review.
