“Grace and the Cowboy”
Coming home to repay a debt was the last thing she wanted to do…
Grace Wade, business diploma in hand, is back home to pay a debt. Unfortunately, this means also having to deal with the demons from her past, particularly one handsome devil who has always taken great pleasure in watching her fail.
Tried and true cowboy Mac Palmer has waited four long years to set the record straight. He was neither responsible for his brother’s betrayal of Grace nor for the dissolution of their engagement. There’s just one complication, the headstrong woman is as unwilling to admit the facts today as she was back then.
A flirt, a dare, and a stubborn cowboy—Grace should have known Mac would never back down, but why does she care? Could it be she’s actually falling for the impossible man…again?
A plastic-covered blue book sat upon his dresser.
Now that was just sloppy, almost insulting, but…she’d take it.
Grace darted across the room.
Grabbing the book, she slid it inside the robe’s inner pocket. She felt like the Grinch, so very pleased and ever-so-slightly devious. Only she wasn’t stealing from good little boys and girls. She was taking back stolen goods from a very naughty man. One who’d be returning very soon if the lack of running water was any indication.
Her heart skipped a beat. She tensed, tilting her ear a little closer to the door. She didn’t hear anyone coming, but that wouldn’t be true for long.
She stormed out of his room just as the bathroom door opened and a towel-clad cowboy stepped out.
Grace froze, as did he. Their gazes met, her eyes widening with alarm as his narrowed with suspicion.
Fear shoved her pulse to racing even as her legs stood still. Okay, this isn’t going to end well. Finally, impulse overrode terror, and she bolted for her room.
But Mac’s arms folded around her long before she even made it halfway. Wet yet warm, solid yet soft, sexy yet…well, sexy stood alone—the man was hot, and by the look on his face, apparently steamed.
Faster than she could mark his intent, he had her spun around and headed right back into his room.
The door closed and a lock turned.
“Guardian of the Stone”
Guardian of the Stone is a unique blend of all my passions – heartfelt romance, fascinating history, secret societies and unique twists on existing mythologies. It explores true sacrifice, family and faith.
Though fictional, it’s built around actual events and places that have, because of the mysteries that surround them, become legends over time.
My heroine is Edeline, a woman born in 14th century France but raised in 20th Century Los Angeles. Unable to remember the years prior to her second birthday, she doesn’t know that most of her life is a fabrification created to protect her. But there are men who know her history and the enormous role she plays in the future. Some silently surround and protect her, while others wish only to covet her power. It is the latter that capture her and take her back to her past.
Dane Walker has one mission – find and bring back the girl. Easy enough or so he believes until he finds his to-be-rescued less than cooperative and the two of them stuck in an era without mercy and in the midst of a war as dark as the time.
Edeline awakes in the arms of a handsome, but obviously deranged, stranger. Not only does he adamantly deny any wrongdoing, but he proclaims himself her hero and declares them in 14th century France. She is determined to escape but her several attempts prove futile. She is as much a prisoner to him as she is to a world she neither recognizes nor understands.
As they make their way across an ancient and mystic land hunted by those who would see her destroyed, Edeline quickly realizes Dane’s words are more than mere ramblings. Trust and acceptance lead to passion and romance. They fall in love.
But Dane is tortured by a secret bound to tear them apart, by taking her back, he is destined to lose her.

He was everything she was afraid of. She was everything he tried to avoid
In a fit of fury, Aubrae Palmer, reporter for the Portland Executive, adds Colton McGregor, a man she believes to be a sexist business tycoon, to her Corporate Giants, Masters of Fortune piece, a once-monthly column fast becoming the city’s “it list” of powerful scoundrels.

Colton McGregor is furious. The woman has cost him a deal very close to his heart – Landon and Sons’ Vineyards. After reading Miss Palmer’s article, Mrs. Landon has decided not to sell. Colton would love to wring the reporter’s lovely neck, but it turns out she could actually be of some use.
