At least its author is. Nick Roberts has never been seen. He doesn't do interviews. He doesn't answer fan mail. He doesn't do late-night talk shows, or book signings, or conferences. No one knows who he is. Everyone is looking for him; websites have been set up offering rewards for finding him.
Four old friends plan their annual road trip. It's been a toss-up every year, with each being different (and some not so good). But this year Russ's idea is to find Nick Roberts. With an address stolen from the accounting files of the publishing house, the four friends set out to find the elusive Roberts and make names for themselves. And as three begin to get distracted - Russ by women, Michael by liquor, and Jim by porn or who knows what - only one stays the course: Steve Riley, a journalist from Knoxville, is determined to find Roberts and land the story of the century.
His dedication to his mission is complicated by a deluge, a flash flood, and an obviously incorrect address. But as time and passion have their way, Steve begins to wonder if his trip will be successful in any other ways. And if his suspicions are correct, what will he do?
Even more unsettling is the real question: If he finds Nick Roberts, will he tell?
Set in the foothills of the beautiful Smoky Mountains, The Celtic Fan is two stories - the story of a journalist following his biggest story ever, and of a wounded soldier and the girl with whom he falls in love post-World War II. Throughout the pages, Bill and Claire's tragic tale winds its way through Steve's story, a story he never thought he'd tell.

When Trish's husband of almost 30 years announces that he's leaving her because she's "boring," she sets out to find an adventure. Her attempt to drink the heartbreak of her divorce away drops her onto a handsome gentleman who invites her to have an adventure, and Trish can't help but say yes.
He’s mysterious, aloof, and he’s got a secret.
She embarks on that journey, submissive training, at the hands of Dave, her mentor, but her path keeps crossing with that of another - Clint Winstead, a Dominant at the BDSM club, Bliss, and the one person in the place who seems to despise her. That's fine with Trish. After all, there are plenty of other Doms there who want to play, and besides, the obvious age difference between her and Clint would make her feel like a cougar, not at all how she sees herself. The lifestyle appeals to her, and what seems odd and scary to her initially turns into fun with the possibility that she’ll find love as she forges relationships with the other members of the club.
But when an annual event at Bliss throws Trish and Clint together for two weeks, both of them are horrified, not by the pairing, but by the feelings they're trying hard to deny. As the time passes, it's harder and harder to deny what they know is true - that is, until one nearly-tragic incident that almost changes both their lives irreparably. And when Trish realizes that continuing on with her commitment could cost her the ultimate - her life - she knows that it has to end. Doesn’t it?
Trish is the queen of second chances, but things are just too scary. Problem is, if she leaves, she’ll never learn his secret.
Or know his heart.
Join the crew at Bliss, the best BDSM club in the region, and get to know the Doms and subs who play there as they learn about bondage, discipline, punishment, and commitment. There’s fun, blistering-hot sex, and maybe even love! With Trish and Clint’s May/December romance, Adventurous Me starts the series with a bang – literally – and it just gets better from there!

It’s taken him a long time, but Vic Walters finally has the life he always wanted. His beautiful wife, Laura, was the answer to his dreams, and he’s totally smitten with the kids he never thought he’d have. He has money, a home, cars, clothes, and his family. Love and laughter should fill his days, but horror haunts Vic, and all he can think about are the three women he never meant to hurt. And hurt them he did—physically. He knows it wasn’t his fault. He understands why and how it happened. That, however, does nothing to assuage his guilt. He doesn’t need a miracle. He needs atonement. And there’s only one way to get it.
In the kickoff to the Legacy series, the second spinoff of the Love Under Construction series and following the Citadel series, Atonement is as poignant as a Nicholas Sparks novel with all the makings of true romance and a little humor thrown in. You’ll visit the Walters clan again, and then head straight into uncharted territory as Vic makes three pilgrimages that will change his life forever.
