Lady Isabella’s Ogre (a novel)

Lady Isabella Knox enjoys her independence. She collects strays—dogs, kittens, runaway brides—but she has no intention of collecting a husband.

Major Nicholas Reynolds has had enough of soldiering; all he wants now is a bride … but his scarred face sends young ladies fleeing.

When a slip of Isabella’s tongue brands the major an ogre, his chances of marriage disintegrate. Determined to put things to rights, Isabella sets out to revive the major’s marriage prospects. How better than for the two of them to indulge in a make-believe flirtation? They both know it’s not real, so where’s the danger?

But Isabella is soon in over her head—and so is Major Reynolds.

Lieutenant Mayhew’s Catastrophes (a novella)

When Lieutenant Mayhew boards the stagecoach bound for Southampton he anticipates an uneventful journey. True, he’s carrying kittens, but it’s only eighty miles. What could possibly go wrong?

He’s not expecting to meet the enchanting Miss Willemina Culpepper. Nor is he expecting the kittens to be quite so good at vanishing.

Mayhew has faced many challenges in his career as a soldier. Traveling from London to Southampton should not be difficult. Except that it is.
