Malcolm Sinclair left home a haunted man, looking for redemption, for a new life. When he finds acceptance with a band of Dutch privateers, he leaves Scotland for good, never to look back. Until his Captain's daughter is kidnapped by Scottish brigands and he must save her. But his responsibility to this captured woman goes far beyond that of a rescuer, for he has promised to protect her with his name, with his heart, with his life. Lilian Mason wants only one thing. Revenge. She sneaks aboard the Dutch pirate ship, captained by her mortal enemy, her knife and courage at the ready. But when she is unwrapped by a bewitching Highlander instead of a giant blond pirate, Lilian fears her plan has gone very wrong. If she waits to exact her revenge, she risks being discovered for the fraud she is, but even more dangerous, she risks losing her heart to the man closest to her enemy... an unexpected Pirate Highlander. 


When mistaken identity leaves her captive, he has no choice but to return for her… 

Malcolm Sinclair returns home to find Kees Rademacher and his pirate friends waiting for him. Malcolm's plans to free Josephine de Witt from her enemy captors can only go as far as Kees will allow. Kees would like nothing more than to grab the girl and be done with it. Until he lays eyes on her. 

Josephine de Witt is an unexpected complication. She is beautiful and willful and has plans of her own. And while Malcolm would love nothing more than to return to his wife and family, Kees only has eyes for Josephine. But when her pirate captors discover who they have snared, no one is getting out alive.

Book 1
R.L. Syme
Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream.

Between the police scanners, the coffee ladies, and the senior center, no secret is safe for long. But Vangie Vale wants nothing more than to stay under the radar...especially the police radar.


So when her new bakery is linked to a murder investigation, nothing will stop the gossip mill from connecting her to the dead body. Can't have that.

In order to clear her good name and keep her face off the front page, this bakery owner becomes extra nosy...with a little side of breaking-and-entering. But when she comes face-to-face with the Sheriff, Vangie can't ignore the fact that one of her macarons was involved in a murder. She has to find the real murderer.

The Murdered Macaron is book one in The Matchbaker Mysteries, a new cozy culinary mystery series from USA Today Bestselling Author, R.L. Syme.
