‘He doesn’t love me.’
Casey’s been living with her boyfriend, Kyle for three years. Are her instincts right, or could insecurities be flaring? She knows their closest friends, Aster and Matt, are keeping secrets from her–secrets about Kyle.
For Aster the issue isn’t whether Matt loves her. It’s that he has no ambition and suddenly has decided to become a Jesus freak. Her own relationship problems are difficult enough, but how can she tell her best friend, Casey what Kyle has done?
The answer becomes moot when something so shattering occurs, it makes everything these four friends have been through together seem trivial. In the wake of true tragedy, who will rise? And who will fall?
Rated M for mature. Contains graphic language and adult content.
Historical Romantic Suspense
Is He a Beast or an Angel?
Gabriel Drayton is cruel, ruthless and severely deformed. Lilly Hawthorne accepts a position as tutor to his six-year-old daughter, only to discover the rumors about her employer are frighteningly true. She is revolted, but has no choice. To save her sister from a dire financial predicament, Lilly agrees to marry him. Strangely, the man she shares a bed with is nothing like the vulgar creature she endures during the day. Lilly is left to wonder, will she ever uncover what’s truly hidden beneath her husband’s mask?
He must protect his family at all costs!
No one sees his face. Not his daughter and certainly not his beautiful bride. Gabriel Drayton knows Lilly married him for his money… for what woman could ever love a scarred, disgusting beast like him? The only thing he has to offer is the security of his isolated ancestral home, where he believes they will be safe. But he is wrong! Death threats keep coming–just like those that plagued him four years ago. And this time they’re aimed at his wife and unborn child!
Oh, Garfield, what are you going to do?
You’re stuck in a mountain cabin during a blizzard. You have no electricity, no phone and no way to get out. And your brother’s childhood sweetheart, the most annoying, Chloe Patterson–who doesn’t even remember you!–has just invaded your comfortable solitary world.
This romantic comedy will leave you in stitches, as Gar and Chloe figure out how to get past their numerous misconceptions and realize they were always meant to be together.

Historical Romantic Suspense
Sometimes a Hero is Needed!
The Civil War is over, but the South’s troubles have not ended. The Ku Klux Klan holds power and their terror is growing worse by the day. Amidst this turmoil, out of the darkness a masked nightrider emerges. His mission seems simple–to reign equal terror on them!
Torn between loyalty to her family and admiration for this enigmatic vigilante, Jessica Emerson has vowed to do everything she can to help him. But first she must figure out who he is, for she knows by word of her own father, that if the Klan finds out, they will kill him!
Not everything is always as it first appears…
There is nothing Jessica regrets more than agreeing to marry former Confederate Captain Jon Kinsley. She fell prey to his gentlemanly ways, only to discover he is a ruthless bigot and active leader within the Klan. There is only one friend left to her–the Reverend Sebastian Nash–the same man she strongly suspects is the South’s greatest hero!
But, when Jon Kinsley’s life hangs in the balance, and secrets are revealed that leave Jessica reeling, there’s only one choice left. Will she be able to forgive those who have hurt her the most? And will love be enough to save a life?

Etienne is determined to see her brought to justice, but how can he when she’s the only person who can subdue the demons that haunt him? How can he when she’s the only one who can restore his wounded heart?
