    The Haunting of a Duke (The Dark Regency Series Book 1)

    A steamy Regency romance full of spicy thrills and spooky chills. Welcome to Briarwood Park, an English manor house filled with spirits, its halls stalked by a bloodthirsty madman, and a brooding duke accused of the most wicked crime of all… murdering his late wife. The Haunting of a Duke is perfect read for Halloween or any time of the year for those who like their romance served up slightly darker. Communing with spirits has been both gift and curse to Emme Walters. Now it’s made her a killer’s target. Emme knows why the Dowager Duchess of Briarleigh invited her to a house party–to investigate whether the duke, Rhys Brammel, murdered his wife years ago. But Emme never imagined she would fall in love with the brooding duke. Branded by society as a possible killer, Rhys is suspicious of Emme and her alleged “gift.” Then a late night encounter creates awareness of her other, more attractive, aspects. When Emme’s life is threatened, Rhys becomes her protector. Emme and Rhys find passion and peril as they join forces to solve the mysteries at Briarleigh. She made him believe in spirits, but can she make him believe in love? The Haunting of a Duke is the first of six book in the Dark Regency Series. Each book in this series contains gothic elements, occult or paranormal references, and steamy, open door sex scenes.Praise for the Haunting of a Duke: “Omg!

    House of Shadows (The Victorian Gothic Collection Book 1)

    House of Shadows is Part One of a three part series. Both Veil of Shadows, Part Two and Passage of Shadows, Part Three, are avalable on Amazon, as well. After losing her father and nearly losing her life when their ship sank off the coast of Cornwall, Adelaide Hampton Parke is faced with a terrible dilemma. Her stepmother has demanded that they immediately set sail for New York but the very idea of stepping foot on board another ship and facing the uncertainty of a Transatlantic crossing leaves her paralyzed with fear. Not to mention that her relationship with her stepmother is contentious at best and she’s been given only six months to return to New York and find herself a husband or be put out of the family’s Park Avenue home to make her own way in the world. Salvation comes, unexpectedly, in the form of a telegram from Eldren Llewellyn a Welsh lord and the sole owner of a mining empire. He’d partnered with her father in multiple business ventures, and upon the man’s death, proposed to Adelaide in order to spare her the ordeal of returning home in her stepmother’s less than tender care. But as she travels to his remote estate in Snowdonia, Adelaide comes to realize that his ancestral home, Cysgod Lys, literally the Shadow Hall, is filled with secrets and dark things she cannot name. Fear is her constant companion and she begins to wonder if her new husband is her savior… or her doom. **** Please note that this is a true trilogy. It isn’t three interconnected stories, but one story told over the span of three books. Each book can be read as a complete story on its own, though it will help to read them in order. They will be published in fairly quick succession at about eight weeks apart. The standard length for a novel is 45,000 words to 90,000 words. This series, when complete, will be 150,000 words in total. That was simply too much for one book and that is why it is being told in parts. Thank you. ****
