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

With anti-EU sentiment over increasing centralized control surging across the continent, Europe is suddenly plunged into a spiral of events threatening the future of the free world. A political thriller, PRETENSE, the first book of the IMBROGLIO TRILOGY, weaves a compelling tale of conspiracy and suspense, personality and wit, which will keep you coming back for more.


A dark cloud hangs over Europe after the brutal murders of two heads of government, just days apart. Growing civil unrest erupts across Europe threatening the stability of national governments. Tasked with finding the criminals, Interpol’s Marek Frakas, also known as “The Wolf,” joins forces with top federal police investigators of several nations. This cadre includes the lovely Adrianna Bartoszek, a young forensic weapons expert who has no problem holding her own on the male-dominated team.


A tense game of ‘cat and mouse’ is soon underway as authorities move quickly to apprehend the three suspects. They track them from Slovakia to Poland and on to Germany where another tragic event leads to more deaths. Meanwhile, pressure mounts for the investigative team. When dubious information repeatedly thwarts their efforts, one fact becomes obvious. Behind these assassinations lies a sinister plot which appears to stretch westward to the United States, implicating the CIA. But do the facts reflect reality or is there an unseen mastermind working behind the scenes to destabilize Europe and NATO?


As time begins to run out, Marek decides to trust his instincts and contact an old friend. As result, help is offered from a most unlikely source. But frustration caused by past mistakes has planted seeds of distrust within the investigative team. They are at an impasse and differences must be resolved before moving forward.


More action follows as they pursue the suspects to the beautiful Greek Isles. And as though lost in a maze of mirrors, they are blindsided once again. Can they uncover the truth before it’s too late? There are still more twists to come.
