"Fast paced and intricately plotted, A Devilish Slumber spins a tale of lost love, cold-blooded murder, and heartless betrayal. A page turner!"--Award-winning author, Gail Whitiker

". . . the mystery and suspense of ghosts and murders will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you guessing to the very end."--Black Lilac Kitty review of A Beastly Scandal

Since dealing with the death of her sister, and her abandonment by Sir Phillip Jones--the man who professed to love her--Lady Roselyn Ravenstock has lived as if sleepwalking. Mired in grief, she sequestered herself in her home, avoiding all callers. Then she meets Mrs. Helen Beaumont, and Rose starts to come to life . . . until Helen is murdered. But this time, Rose isn't going back to sleep. Vowing to avenge her friend, Rose dons a costume and goes out into the night looking for a killer.

Sir Phillip, the Regent's favored spy, returns from war determined to win back the woman he was forced to leave three years ago. But when he witnesses Rose covered in blood, racing from a brutal scene while gripping the murder weapon, he goes on a desperate mission to unravel what he hopes is a case of mistaken identity.

The investigation leads Rose into a world of enchantment, where people can reshape their features, fires are begun with a snap of fingers, and objects move of their own accord. But the real magic is the blazing attraction that is re-awakened between her and Phillip.

Will Rose ever get her happily ever after? Possibly. But first, she'll have to convince Phillip of her innocence--

before the killer strikes again. . . .

"Vedam's Regencies are filled with intricate whimsy. There's definitely more romance than grim in these fairytales." --Emma Jane Holloway, award winning author of A Study in Silk

"A truly charming retelling of the Beauty and the Beast tale." --KeeperBookshelf.com of A Beastly Scandal

". . . a beautiful story filled with romance, murder, and a ghost."--Paranormal Romance Guild of A Beastly Scandal

"The mystery . . . will keep you on the edge of your seat."--Blacklilackitty.wordpress.com of A Beastly Scandal

He's not exactly Prince Charming . . .

Fire shifter Daniel Trenton has only nightmarish memories of his mysterious past. As an orphan, raised on the streets, he does not have much in the way of prospects, but he is fine with that . . . until he falls in love with the daughter of a duke. Unfortunately, pursuing her would mean her social destruction. So he promises himself to leave her alone for her own good. But when her safety is threatened, Daniel has no choice but to become the hero she so desperately needs.

Heiress Faith Rosemary Went always believed she would be given the choice of whom to marry. So why is her father demanding she wed a man she's never met, a man whose family terrifies her? When she resists the match, her prospective bridegroom's family kidnaps her and whisks her away to Gretna Green. Having no one to rely on, Faith sets off to rescue herself before she's ruined, or worse. Luckily, she discovers Daniel is already there.

Daniel's investigation into Faith's disappearance unravels two decades of lies, multiple murders, and a fire-shifting family history that spans three centuries. His newfound discoveries put him in the position to proudly and rightfully proclaim his place in society and, more importantly, proclaim his love for Faith.

But will he be able to prove the truth before Faith is forced to choose the wrong man?

Who needs a prince, when you've got a huntsman?

Nevara Wood is desperate to change her life. Plagued by shifting sight, which skews her normal vision and shows her disturbing visions, she's always felt odd and unlovable. And she greatly wants to be loved--especially by Mark Dimas, the man she has hero-worshiped since the day he saved her life. Her only chance at happiness lies in breaking the curse that afflicts her--and all clues to the source of her torment point to a town in Southern Spain. Unfortunately, her every attempt to travel to that war-ravaged continent is impeded by the very man whose love she wants to win . . .

Mark Dimas Alvaro is the last in a line of wizards charged by his ancestor, a magical huntsman, to secretly protect Nevara's family. But Mark chafes at his role because it has cost him everyone he loves, most recently his beloved brother. He is certain that if Nevara would simply stay in England and not create any unnecessary magical waves, they could both survive for another generation. Instead, his stubborn charge's persistent investigation into her past lands Nevara in imminent danger. Mark instantly prepares to wage a magical war to protect the woman he has sworn to protect . . . and has come to deeply love.

But Nevara's innocent probing has awoken an ancient evil that has held a grudge against her charmed family for three centuries. And it will do everything in its power to ensure that this princess never gets to live happily ever after . . .

A tale as old as time . . .

Lady Annabelle Marchant was a belle of the ball in London until she attempted to save a man's life with her psychic senses. She failed miserably, leaving him dead and her disgraced. All she wants now is a chance to comfort his widow by cleansing the woman's home of her husband's restless spirit. But the widow's son accuses her of coming to the wilds of Cheshire to snag him as a husband.

Rufus Marlesbury, the beastly Earl of Terrance, is suspected of murdering his father. He has come home to clear his name by finding the real killer before the new year, or Rufus will be called in front of the House of Lords to answer for the crime.

With an unruly manor ghost terrorizing the occupants, and corpses piling up in the village, Belle must find a way to uncover the man beneath the beast. Rufus, too, must learn to believe in the love of a woman who has no reason to trust him. Only by working together can they stop a killer before he strikes again . . . .
