___________________________________________________________________

A duke tormented by a painful secret meets the bookish miss who just might save him from himself...

Banished to Yorkshire as a boy for faults his father failed to beat out of him, Damon Blackbourne has no use for English society and had vowed never to return to his family's estate at Thorne Hill, much less London. However, when his father and brother die in a freak carriage accident, it falls on Damon to take up the mantle of the Malford dukedom, and to introduce his sisters to London Society-his worst nightmare come to life.

He never planned on Lady Grace Mattersley. The beautiful debutante stirs him body and soul with her deep chocolate eyes and hesitant smiles. Until she stumbles across his dark secret.

Bookish Grace much prefers solitude and reading to social just-about-anything. Her family may be pressuring her to take on the London Season to find herself a husband, but she has other ideas. Such as writing a novel of her own. But she has no idea how to deal with the Duke of Malford.

Will she betray him to the world? Or will she be his saving Grace?

An award-winning magical romantic comedy in which a bookstore owner must choose between fantasy and reality after realizing the men she's dating are characters she'd created years before...

"Locke breaks down tropes--the popular jock and the thoughtful poet--and puts cracks in their shining armor with humor and insight...Blending romance with whimsical fantasy, Locke's story offers up a look at the expectations of youthful fancy vs. the realities of an adult love." - Library Journal

__________________________________________________________________

What would you do if you discovered the men you were dating were fictional characters you'd created long ago?

Thirty-five-year-old Catherine Schreiber has shelved love for good. Keeping her ailing bookstore afloat takes all her time, and she’s perfectly fine with that. So when several men ask her out in short order, she’s not sure what to do ... especially since something about them seems eerily familiar.

A startling revelation -- that these men are fictional characters she’d created and forgotten years ago -- forces Cat to reevaluate her world and the people in it. Because these characters are alive. Here. Now. And most definitely in the flesh.

Her best friend, Eliza, a romance novel junkie craving her own Happily Ever After, is thrilled by the possibilities. The power to create Mr. Perfect -- who could pass that up? But can a relationship be real if it’s fiction? Caught between fantasy and reality, Cat must decide which -- or whom -- she wants more.

Blending humor with unusual twists, including a magical manuscript, a computer scientist in shining armor, and even a Regency ball, A Man of Character is a whimsical-yet-thought-provoking romantic comedy that tells a story not only of love, but also of the lengths we'll go for friendship, self-discovery, and second chances.

Magic of Love Book 1: 327 pages

At any age, in any age, we could all fall by the highway of life. Charlie and Angel are two such teenagers, who break the monotony of their foster home life by breaking into houses. When a burglary goes wrong, they escape in a stolen van along the Great Central Road. What follows, just as they are beginning find somewhere to belong, is murder and a ruthless international crime syndicate.
They meet two German tourists who have broken down, and together the four of them travel the Great Central Road.
As Angel learns to use the camera she has also stolen, she discovers a special affinity for photography. She practices on the abandoned cars they find by the road, and perhaps because she also feels abandoned she seems to have a special talent for this.
At Warburton they meet a community of desert artists. One of them, Daisy, encourages Angel to exhibit her photographs in an exhibition in Alice Springs commemorating the 50th anniversary of The Great Central Road.
In Alice Springs they set to work to produce posters for the exhibition. Both Charlie and Angel are at last beginning to feel as if they belong somewhere. But the acceptance is short lived when the owner of the gallery is found murdered and suspicion turns on Charlie.
Feeling as if they can never escape their past, they are about to flee when Charlie is arrested.
With the help of the two Germans Angel uncovers the real culprits, a gang of ruthless international art thieves whose crimes put their own misdemeanors in perspective.
