PAYBACK, Book 1 in the Unintended Consequences Romantic Suspense  series:

With strange fainting spells rattling James Fitzgerald’s sense of identity and complicating his acting career, he seeks solace at his country home in Virginia, once owned by his parents. But instead of a relaxing getaway with his closest friends, he walks into a bloodbath. And a cryptic message on a shower curtain points to him as the killer.

Carrie Johnson has hidden herself away in northern Virginia’s woods to escape an abusive husband. But her attempts to stay isolated from society are confounded by her attraction to her only neighbor, part-time resident James Fitzgerald.

Virtually under house arrest and struggling to resist his growing attraction to Carrie, James distracts himself by investigating his parents’ backgrounds, seeking an explanation for the fainting spells. Instead, he discovers some shocking truths about his family and himself and ends up wondering if he should have let sleeping ghosts lie.

BACKLASH, Book 2 in the Unintended Consequences Romantic Suspense series:

James Fitzgerald and Carrie Johnson are taking it slow, getting to know each other as lovers instead of just neighbors, but slow is no longer an option when Carrie’s teenaged son appears at her door.

They know her abusive husband won’t be far behind. He isn’t, and he brings with him more baggage than just his rage at the wife who ran away from him. With the help of a couple of ghosts, James struggles to protect Carrie and the boy.

But the danger is not only to their lives; the challenges thrown at them threaten to tear them apart and destroy Carrie’s hopes for a normal, happy life.


Backfire coming soon!

BARTERED INNOCENCE, a Romantic Thriller

An innocent errand—to pick up her young niece at a children’s birthday party—plunges P.I. Jenny Glassman into a gruesome scene and sets off a desperate search for a kidnapped woman and five missing children.

Police detective Hunt Morgan certainly doesn’t need a civilian cluttering up his case, not even one who’s a licensed investigator. But this particular P.I. keeps coming up with good leads. And she’s the first woman he’s felt attracted to in a long time.

Meanwhile, Deanna Roberts is dealing with the terrifying reality that she has been kidnapped, along with her daughter and four other little girls. She can’t afford to wait for the authorities to find them. In a few days, they will suffer a horrific fate, unless she can find a way to escape…even if it means sacrificing herself.

Warning: This story contains a few graphic scenes that some people may find triggering.
