“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.

“Hard Copy”

He was everything she was afraid of. She was everything he tried to avoid

In a bit 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. Once she calms down, she realizes it’s a mistake and deletes his name and his alleged deeds from the article. But what good conscience wouldn’t allow her to do, fate has put into motion. 

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. Mrs. Landon’s nephew is convinced if Colton can prove himself something other than a uncaring playboy, Mrs. Landon might reconsider. He needs two things – a retraction of the article and a fiancè. It just so happens Miss Palmer can supply him with both.
