Maggie Kelly writes a best selling Regency Era-set mystery series starring her handsome, witty hero, Alexandre Blake, Viscount St. Just. This works very well, or at least it did until St. Just somehow managed to make the leap between fiction and her New York apartment. You’d have to be there…
While considering her growing attraction to a fictional character even as she is romance by Homicide detective Steve Wendell, Maggie is desperate to help her editor, accused of murdering her supposedly long dead husband (yes, you read that correctly), and terrified to learn that Alex’s sidekick, Sterling, has been kidnapped….all while Maggie finds herself stuck in the middle, without a clue…

(formerly titled High Heels and Homicide)
Maggie Kelly, best selling author of the Alexandre St. Just Mystery Series, is on her way to jolly old England to watch the filming of one of her books for the small screen. Her entourage includes her editor, her agent, the viscount and his loyal sidekick, Sterling Balder. Months earlier both characters had popped out of her books and into her life, and yes, she still had trouble with that, even though her friends had accepted them as her English cousins whose names and physical descriptions she’d used when first creating the series.
Once at the lovely old manor house where the filming is to take place, the mayhem that seems to travel wherever St. Just saunters rears its ugly head. We have a manor cut off from the world by a flood, motives galore, and a cast of characters anyone would cheerfully choke. And, yes, soon there is also a dead body. But not to worry, as it’s St. Just to the rescue … again.
Maggie Kelly writes the best selling St. Just Mystery Series featuring Regency Era amateur sleuth Alexandre Blakely, Viscount St. Just. One day she turns around and her handsome, arrogant fictional character is standing in the middle of her living room. It seems she has drawn him so well, that he was able to pop out of her head and into her life.
While juggling lies explaining her strange “houseguest,” Maggie also finds herself the prime suspect in the murder of her publisher and former lover. St. Just, hero that he is, naturally insists he will solve the crime, but she has her doubts. So far, her perfect hero has yet to remember to put the cap back on the toothpaste…
(formerly titled High Heels and Holidays)
Best selling author Maggie Kelly and her fictional characters come to life (hey, read the books…) are about to celebrate their first Christmas together, if Maggie lives that long, that is.
Fans usually send her cards, or pretty crocheted bookmarks, even candy, but one fan has gone too far by way of the delivery of a dead rat and a death threat. Maggie tries to laugh it off (“everybody’s a critic”) … until a fellow author and dead rat recipient is found murdered. Could she be next? Never fear, for St. Just is here, in all his Regency glory, ready to leap in and save the day.
Lady Nicole Daughtry has vowed never to be vulnerable to any man. Despite the many suitors vying for the dazzling beauty's hand, she has seen the damage love can inflict and wants no part of it. Until she meets Lucas Paine, Marquess of Basingstoke, whose aura of danger and mystery draws her like no other….
Lucas is a man with a mission—and a powerful thirst for revenge. The last thing he can afford is the distraction of a pretty face. But a scandalous affair with Nicole could be just the cover he needs to outwit his enemies. With treachery everywhere, and Nicole's very life in his hands, Lucas will face his greatest challenge yet—to keep the lady safe from harm…and his heart safe from her.
