A treat for readers who love epic fantasy, sword and sorcery tales mixed with action and a spoonful of supernatural.
Princess Maura is the beloved and spoiled daughter of Queen Abisola and her Consort Iasos, but an ill wind is blowing their way. From the distant east, nomadic tribesmen, known as the Bhuttanians, have unified under the leadership of Zoar, a powerful king who is bent on building a vast empire. Queen Abisola has little time to transform her peaceful, agrarian country into a fighting military unit able to take on Zoar’s experienced warriors.
Queen Abisola must surrender her daughter to the Dinii, a bird-like people who will adopt and train Princess Maura as a warrior to lead her people against Zoar. For years, both the Dinii and Maura’s people prepare to withstand Zoar’s inevitable onslaught, but they never anticipated combating the black magic of Zoar’s evil wizard Zedek.
And no one foresaw that Princess Maura would fall in love with Dorak, Zoar’s son!
Will Princess Maura lose the love of her life as she struggles to save her people? Will her country be able to survive where others have crumbled before the tyranny of Zoar? Or will the Dinii betray her to the warlord Zoar in order to save themselves?

Maura knows she must put her feelings aside and do what is best for her people. She must seek out the Royal Bogazkoy––a powerful plant which will give her enormous power to resist the conquering Bhuttanians.

Charlie Hoskins was a self-made man.
Born poor as a church mouse, he was relentless in his pursuit of money to the point of being universally hated.
Oh, he was admired for his rags-to-riches story. He was admired for being a good businessman. But Charlie never learned tact and made many enemies in the process of realizing his goals. He didn’t care that in order to accomplish his dreams, he trampled on those of others.
So it didn’t surprise Josiah Reynolds when someone decided to kill Charlie. The only thing that bothered her was that her lawyer and friend, Shaneika Mary Todd, might have done the dirty deed!
Join Josiah as she discovers the truth in a world that hides its secrets among antebellum mansions and million dollar horses grazing in emerald pastures.
This is the world of the Bluegrass . . . a world of wealth, privilege, and now murder!
What’s a little arson between friends?
Undercover CIA agent Fortune Redding spent her first three weeks in Sinful, Louisiana dodging insults, makeup advice, guard dogs, bullets, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc, both professionally and personally. But just when she thinks things are going to settle down in the small bayou town, someone sets her friend Ally’s house on fire.
Carter, who’d just started pursuing Fortune on a personal basis, goes back into cop mode and admonishes her to stay out of his investigation. This time, he swears he won’t issue any warning before arresting her. But with her friend’s safety hanging in the balance, Fortune can’t resist taking matters into her own hands and calls on her partners in crime fighting, Ida Belle and Gertie, to help.
This is a mission for Swamp Team 3.
Swamp Team 3 is a humorous mystery set in the bayous of southern Louisiana. It has a cozy mystery feel and features a strong woman sleuth in a fish-out-of-water storyline. Swamp Team 3 is the fourth in the Miss Fortune series and appeals to readers of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

someone call out her name as she strolls down 75th Street
in New York City. With the promise of a free drink, Bunny Witt
steers Josiah into nearby Bemelmans Bar where she proceeds
to unfold a tale about being stalked by a mysterious stranger.
It seems that Bunny’s apartments in London and New York have
been broken into and searched, yet nothing was taken.
She is desperate for someone to find out who is tormenting her
and why. She has decided that someone should be our Josiah!
This chance encounter in the Big Apple leads Josiah into the
world of haute couture, mysterious princes from India, precious
gems, and murder in a town that keeps its secrets well!
In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder.
Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector’s Weekly, and when the attractive reporter isn’t covering auctions and antique shows all over the South, she’s trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, she’s certain the show promises surprising offerings and rare finds. What she doesn’t expect to find is a dead body.
George-Bradley Staunton is known throughout the antiques world as a very wealthy and very ruthless collector, and when he drops dead just after the opening, there are all too few mourners and a seemingly endless list of suspects. When the local police are stumped, Molly steps in to put her journalist’s nose to work sniffing out the culprit. But no sooner does she start collecting clues than another dead body falls into her lap.
As Molly digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses.
“A very likable amateur sleuth . . . I’ll be happy to follow Molly on her future investigations.”
