Sherwood (a Robin Hood time-travel romance)...

Some are born to greatness. Others have it thrust upon them. Marian Allanson would prefer to avoid it, period. Emotionally scarred, and haunted by nightly dreams of the mythical Robin Hood, Marian is just limping through life till a mysterious quirk of fate tosses her and twelve-year-old street kid Orlando Konstantinos centuries into the past. Now she's on a full-scale run through medieval Sherwood, threatened by the Sheriff of Nottingham, and discovering there may be truth to the myth, after all. A forest phantom appears out of the shadows to rescue her from death, then disappears again, leaving her to a different danger in the form of a forced marriage to Lord Roland of Hunterdon, a man hot enough to melt a maid's skivvies (despite the fact underwear hasn't been invented yet). To make matters worse, when the old sheriff is murdered, Roland steps into the job with plans to kill Robin Hood, unless Marian can stop him. Or will Roland be the one to die?... With the questions striking deeper than Robin's arrows, and a sudden uncertainty as to who's the villain and who's the hero, "Maid Marian" has much more to worry about than her missing unmentionables. And speaking of missing, where the devil is Orlando?... Before the secrets crack open and the dust clears, an unlikely heroine will rise from her own ashes, a legend will be rewritten, and a love will be forged strong enough to conquer time...

Romance & Recipes...

Available now on Kindle:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DS676K4

Love, laughs, and cupcakes! Five romantic comedy short stories plus 25 recipes (because nothing says lovin’ like something from the oven). Features two ghostly Victorian romances, two spirited contemporary romps, and a fractured fairytale – but all the matches are made in heaven (or thereabouts). Included are the tales…

Wedding Bell BOOs (Victorian romance): Forced to accept a job as governess in the home of Ian Armstrong, the impeccably proper Miranda Scott is determined to resist her devilish employer, while Ian is just as determined to make Miranda his wife. Neither expects to be bushwhacked by a snarky ghost who seems determined to kill them both… Miranda and Ian are in for a very surprising night.

Hooray for the Red, White & BOO! (the sequel to Wedding Bell BOOs): When Ian is clubbed and Miranda is kidnapped, Ian’s reckless sister Iris rides to the rescue, never dreaming she might fall (literally) into the arms of love.

Marrying Mona (contemporary romance): Bad-boy Danny D’Leon is handsome and rich. And not the marrying kind—he thinks. Good-girl Mona Carmichael agrees. She thinks he’s a louse, and not without reason. They both made a big mistake getting involved even briefly. But since they did, and that fateful fling left Mona in, shall we say, a compromised position, it’s time for Danny to grow up and make the marriage commitment, despite Mona’s resistance, his own doubts, and some dubious help from a clairvoyant grandmother… No, this is not going to be easy.

Seducing Sophia (the sequel to Marrying Mona): Byron Sharpe doesn’t care about love; all he wants is MONEY. Sophia D’Leon is already rich; what she wants is ROMANCE. When the two are brought together by Sophia’s flamboyant and clairvoyant grandmother, they both get a lusty surprise and a lot more than they’re looking for. Let the games begin!

If Wishes Were Kisses (historical fantasy): Start with an ugly heroine (she thinks). Add a handsome rogue of a hero (who disagrees), a wishing spell that probably won’t work (unless it already has), a secret that needs to be told (but not too soon)… And all the characters are named after plants (for whatever that’s worth). Sprinkle with magic, toss in a kiss or three, and let love happen (just watch out for the elf hole)…
