Guard Your Dreams . . . Lest They Emerge from the Mists to Embrace You . . .
After her mother is murdered, Elizabeth’s grandmother casts a spell summoning a Dark Hero from the Gothic Romances Elizabeth devours. When a beguiling Irishman appears at their cottage one magic summer eve, he seems to be everything Elizabeth longs for in a hero. But Donovan is much more than she bargained for when she said ‘I do’.
Once they arrive on his isolated estate, a lonely place where ghosts linger and sorrow prevades, Elizabeth fears her new husband may be courting madness.
Elizabeth has the gift of the seer and is able to speak with the dead. When she is stalked by a malevolent ghost cursed by her ancestor, Elizabeth is forced to embrace her magical heritage and confront the disturbing secrets hidden in her soul. The price may be too steep; if Donovan learns her horrifying secrets, Elizabeth may lose his love forever.
Two lovers separated by an evil curse.
A desperate quest through time.
A love that wants to beat all odds.
And all the while, deadly danger brews around a two-thousand-year-old secret society and the enemy that lives to decimate it.
“…’Til the end of my life, I shall belong to you as your husband.”
That was the promise Adrian made to Emmaline. And then, he was gone forever…
It is 1807. Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and Lady Emmaline Deramore are about to wed and British Society teems with excitement at this imminent love match. But Madeleine de Brandeville, a mysterious Frenchwoman, has her lustful and ambitious sights on the groom. When she sets her cruel plan in motion, she leaves devastation in her path.

But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other–to get back her man.

Weaving a web of revenge can be satisfying, but dangerous to your heart.
London society is shallow and cruel, sending Cassandra Renwick running to Calcutta, the exotic seat of the British Raj. It’s a fascinating place filled with interesting sights – including the dark and mysterious Julian Ritchie. But she never thought that an even greater heartbreak could be here in this alien and enchanting land.
Julian has always been discriminated against for being only half English. Embittered, he plots an intricate plan for vengeance with the innocent and lovely Cassandra as his pawn. But he soon finds that payback can be painful for the avenger as well when the threads of revenge unwittingly turn into the silken bonds of love.
To the Faerie Gentry of the Otherworld, the fairy wee folk are but a myth and legend. Until the fairy Korin falls in love with a half-Gentry maid. Forced to bargain with an evil king to woo her, he risks discovery, and his life, to fulfill the conditions.
Korin Goodfellow loves the Gentry maid, Nanceen. In order to woo her, Korin bargains with his evil king, who sets seemingly impossible tasks. The first? She must believe in him.
But the folk of Faerie, the Gentry, don’t believe in the odd assortment of beings who make up the wee folk. And definitely not in fairies.
Nanceen doesn’t know what she believes. Until Korin calls to her, then makes his way into her world, becoming a wingless man she can see, touch, believe in.
But will the rat king’s conditions drive a wedge between them, or force Korin to confrontation, to battle, into risking his life for love?

And just as she begins to hope and dream about being with the only man who ever stirred her heart, body and soul, Justine’s life is thrown into chaos.

KSUN reporter Angie Fletcher is definitely hiding something, and Jason Macdonald is determined to find out exactly what it is while he keeps his own secrets under wraps.
Angie Fletcher’s life is right on track—she has her dream job as an up and coming TV reporter at San Diego’s KSUN, plus the perfect fiancé who understands her and her career goals. With a wedding to plan and her former farmer’s daughter past to keep hidden, the last thing she needs is her new assignment covering Green Zone’s community garden project. She’ll need to grit her teeth and just get through it…but when she meets long-haired, devastatingly handsome and mysterious Jason Macdonald, she soon finds herself taunted and tempted.
For Jason Macdonald, Green Zone is a perfect fit—and the polar opposite of his former, fast-paced 24/7 work schedule. When he learns the new KSUN reporter is resisting covering his new business, he’s ready to set her straight. When they meet, all sorts of sparks fly. She’s everything he expects—type-A all the way…but he also suspects she’s hiding something. When she lets her guard down, he sees a glimpse of a different Angie. But what is she hiding…and why does he care so much?
The past is a funny thing. We think we can run from it, hide it, even change it in the eyes of others. But, with hard work we don’t have to be trapped by it, and maybe, just maybe, it’s there to teach us. As their attraction builds and they are forced to work together, will Angie and Jason each face their pasts in order to open up their hearts to an unexpected future?

In the year 2057, in a post-apocalyptic world where a polar shift threatens the survivors of a widespread pandemic with extinction, sixteen-year-old genetically enhanced Lily Carmichael has more immediate problems. Her uncle is dying of cancer and her healing abilities are ineffective against the blood ties that bind them. In order to find a cure, Lily must leave the protection of her quiet town and journey to the trading city of Albany, all while avoiding the Industry, an agency that would like nothing better than to study and exploit her abilities.
Seventeen-year-old Will Callahan has been searching for his father since severe storms blasted through the Midwest, killing his mother and sister. When he learns that his father may be in the city, he catches a ride with Lily, a girl who has come to his rescue more than once. As the two embark on a dangerous journey, the tension between them grows. But the secrets Will’s keeping could put Lily in far more danger than traveling to the city with him, and if he was any kind of man, he would have told her to run the minute she found him.
Fabulous chances to win big, right?!
