A unique love letter to the Gold Rush town of Paradise, California!

CALIFORNIA LEGENDS...These are chronicles of the Old West--of the native people who lived on the land for generations and the pioneers who came from all over the world in search of riches…the struggle to survive in a land without laws…the strange bedfellows that resulted from the clash of cultures…and the common language of the heart that spoke of a love more precious than gold.

NATIVE GOLD: Book 1

Mathilda Hardwicke, a rebellious artist rejected by her family and New York society, heads west to Gold Rush California to make a new life for herself as a mail-order bride. When fate leaves her at the altar in Paradise Bar--a ramshackle gold camp full of ragtag miners--she's sure she's leaped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

But unbeknownst to Mattie, she has a protector. Sakote, a fierce Konkow warrior, is bound by honor to watch over the white woman. And though his tribe is threatened by the encroaching miners, he's strangely drawn to Mattie, who delights in making pictures of him and whose destiny seems entwined with his.

When a tragedy at the camp forces Sakote to steal Mattie away, she finds herself in an unfamiliar Paradise of savage wonder, and she soon discovers a forbidden love more precious than gold.

"Adventure-packed, passion-filled romance...delivers just what readers want."--Romantic Times Book Review

The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch...Damsels in shining armor...riding to the rescue!  Deirdre, Helena, and Miriel, three kick-arse Scots wenches known as The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch, aren’t about to become any man’s chattel, until they meet heroes who are strong enough to tame their wild ways and worthy enough to win their wayward hearts.

KNIGHT'S PRIZE: Book 3

Miriel of Rivenloch may not have the killer instincts of her older sisters, but she’s keeping a dangerous secret.  She knows more than she’s letting on about the mysterious Shadow, the forest outlaw who robs from the rich and gives to the poor.  And when devil-may-care mercenary Sir Rand la Nuit, hot on the trail of The Shadow, claims to be in love with Miriel, she knows he’s hiding something, too.  It’s a battle of wits as they race to uncover each other’s secrets before their make-believe romance takes on a life of its own.

What happens when the runaway bride he's kidnapped doesn't want to be ransomed?

CALIFORNIA LEGENDS...These are chronicles of the Old West--of the native people who lived on the land for generations and the pioneers who came from all over the world in search of riches…the struggle to survive in a land without laws…the strange bedfellows that resulted from the clash of cultures…and the common language of the heart that spoke of a love more precious than gold.

NATIVE WOLF: Book 2

Half-native twin Chase Wolf has returned to the town of Paradise to take revenge on the rancher who enslaved his grandmother and sent his kin to a reservation. But when Claire Parker, the rancher's beautiful daughter, gets in his way, he ends up taking her hostage instead. The spirited young lady with a taste for dime novels turns out to be more than he bargains for, especially when she starts getting under his skin. Deciding he hasn't the will to make her pay for the sins of her father, he vows to give her back.

Intrepid Claire feels like she's fallen into one of her Wild West adventures. By the time she begins to tame the scowling savage who's abducted her, she realizes he's found his way into her heart. Delivering her home is not going to be easy, especially when they're being pursued by her very determined father and when the last thing she wants to do is leave Chase.

Only the help of Chase's gunslinger twin and Claire's knowledge of derring-do can get them out of trouble and turn bitter vengeance into breathtaking romance.

With an abusive bridegroom tracking her, her only hope is to seek refuge as a nun...until she meets Blade, who awakens her passions and destroys her best-laid plans.
