"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.

A unique love letter from the author to her Gold Rush home town of Paradise, California -- FOR THE REST OF 2018, ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS BOOK WILL GO TO REBUILDING EFFORTS AFTER THE DEVASTATING CAMP FIRE!

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.

"A rich, sensual, pull-at-the-heartstrings romance"--Monica McCarty, NYT bestselling author

SCOTTISH LASSES...Meet the lasses in the world of Mary Queen of Scots...Like the Scottish thistle, they're lovely yet tough, beautiful yet prickly, and only the strongest and wisest heroes are able to elude their thorns to discover the tender blossom within.

MacKENZIE'S LASS:

A woman with a taste for adventure...a man who knows how to satisfy her hunger. The chef to Queen Mary cooks up fiery romance with a spirited Scottish minstrel at the most controversial banquet in Tudor history.

Tristan MacKenzie, a brilliant chef in the royal household, plans to impress Queen Mary at the baptism feast for her infant son, until an intrepid minstrel, Mery Graham, arrives to stir the pot. A woman's place is definitely not in the kitchen, but daring Mery isn't intimidated by the handsome chef who's whetted her appetite for romance. Mery's impetuousness becomes a recipe for disaster as she begins to fall in love and out of wanderlust. And when insatiable curiosity lands her in the middle of a plot to assassinate the prince, Tristan must risk his life and his future--leaping from the frying pan into the fire--to save the sassy lass who has stolen his heart.
