Dragonbound

Horrific are a dragon's claws, its fiery breath and buffeting wings. Potent is its body, fraught with magic down to the very last glistening scale. But most fearsome of all is a dragon's cunning—and the soul that allows it to bond with humans.
 
Sabina was the one girl of her generation chosen as Dragonmaid, friend and caregiver to the copper dragon of her nation's tyrant king. There she witnessed the greed, lust and rage such a beast could incite—and acquired her own very dark secret.
 
Cordain is the mind and soul of the beast, thrust now into the body of the most hated man in the realm. But now that he is a man, can he claim the heart of the maid he's always loved? And when Sabina's dark past threatens to destroy them all, can a dragon turned man find a way to fight?

A Lady's Lessons Series

Rules for a Lady

If a lady is to become a Countess, there are rules...
 
#1: A lady does not attempt to come out in London society disguised as her deceased half-sister.
 
#2: A lady does not become enamored of her guardian; even when his masterful kisses and whispered words of affection tempt her beyond all endurance.

#4: No matter how impossible the odds, a lady always gives her hand and her heart—though not necessarily in that order—to the one man who sees her as she truly is and loves her despite her flagrant disobedience of the rules for a lady.

The Regency Rags to Riches Series

No Place for a Lady

The London rookeries are slums, rife with criminals, and shunned by the upper crust.

A partner is required.
 
Fantine (Fanny) Delarive is perfect. She knows the slums better any, has survived its labyrinth alone for years, and knows every criminal lurking in every dark corner.
 
Then, the investigation detours the pair into the bright ballrooms of the ton.
 
And Fantine fits in here, too.
 
Which changes everything.
 
Lord Chadwick knows a woman of Fantine's ilk is entirely unsuitable for him. But she's infinitely more exciting than any well-born lady he's ever met.
 
Now much more than an acquaintance with the independent, self-reliant Fantine is required... and it must end with nothing less than marriage.

Almost an Angel

In the last ten years, Carolly Hanson has died six times. First in a car crash, then of TB. Beaten, stoned, and shot in the back. The last time, she suffocated from pneumonia.
 
Now she's awake, again, and in the arms of James Oscar Henry Northram, Earl of Traynern.
 
Carolly Hanson must be in training to be an angel. Why else would she keep dying and reappearing in different places and times? Clearly she is to help people, help them find true love, if she is to win her wings.
 
And the handsome Earl, clearly a stiff-backed, dark-brooding man of means, will be her next victim—er, beneficiary.
 
James Oscar Henry Northram is fascinated by Carolly's odd sense of humor, and compelled by her strange forthright manner and complete lack of interest in trapping him into marriage.
 
He also thinks poor Carolly is a Bedlam escapee and isn't the least bit interested in the women she keeps pushing in his direction.
 
Why must Carolly be forced to suffer death only to live again? Could the answer be as close as his embrace?
