A Hello Girl during WWI, widowed Ariel Pennybaker served her country proudly. She now carries on her late husband’s legacy…a home for the many returning injured soldiers.
With her year of mourning nearly at an end, she’s had enough of her self-imposed celibacy. It’s time to get back in the game.
A chance meeting with a handsome WWI aviator fills her imagination with thoroughly naughty thoughts. When a second man walks into her life, her naughty thoughts turn downright decadent. What better way to fulfill her fantasies than by sharing both men’s beds.
As tempting as the idea is, Ariel has a huge secret, one she must protect at all costs. And it’s possible one or both of her lovers is not what he seems.
Thank you so much for your interest in The Mysterious Mrs. Pennybaker. As an author, it both humbles and encourages me that a perfect stranger wants to read what I write.
I absolutely love the Roaring Twenties era … with its decadent lifestyles and rich history. I also wanted to showcase those who served with our forces during the first World War. I found the history of the “Hello Girls” most fascinating and knew I wanted to tell a small part of their story.
I would love to hear your thoughts on my work, either by email at email@example.com, or in the form of an honest review.

U.S. Marshal, Zack McCade, takes pride in protecting the good folks of Greenville - especially beautiful Dr. Suzanne Martindale. He doesn't always understand her need for independence, but he sure does like getting under her skin. It's not like he's looking to settle down - his job is too dangerous to risk taking a wife and family.
In an era when women aren't readily accepted in the male dominated world of medicine, Suzanne doesn't have time for courting - especially a charming Cajun rogue like Zack. When he proposes a fake betrothal to keep the matchmaking town out of their hair, she's sure it's a bad idea but can't deny her longing for a respite from the over-zealous bachelors in town.
Their ruse starts a fire in their hearts that neither expected, but will the re-emergence of Suzanne's real fiance douse the flames?
