Books

Books are listed in chronological order of publication within each series, though this does not apply to stand alone books.  Series books should generally be read in order.  E-books may be purchased at major ebook retailers: Amazon, Smashwords, Apple, Kobo, Sony, and Barnes & Noble Print editions will be available in the future!

NOTE: I will include a warning if there are depictions of violence that are integral to the story. Not all books will have them and when included, will be only what’s required as a necessary part of the story.

A Rose Beneath the Snow ~ Book 1

A Rose Beneath the Snow is the story of one woman’s rise from the seedier side of Victorian London to the grand ballrooms of the aristocracy as she chases her mysterious beginnings and comes face to face with her past.

She had no name but…Miranda.

Raised in a notorious brothel without family or heritage, she knew only endless days of drudgery as a servant, shrinking from the life that would one day be forced upon her by those to whom she owed her daily existence.

She had no hope until…James.

The man who, with skill and tenderness, showed her what her future could be. He fulfilled her most ardent desires, explored with her the depths of love possible between a man and a woman — and betrayed her trust.

She feared the future without…her identity.

Alone, wounded, and armed with mysterious clues to her family, she begins an epic journey through Victorian London to find the answers she seeks—all the while hiding her past and shunning love and marriage. She wonders if she will ever again meet the man who spoke to her heart. And if she did, would it change the course of her destiny . . . and his?

Sensuality Meter

SWEET — May or may not include lovemaking, and stops at the bedroom door.  No explicit sex.

SENSUAL — Many romance novels fall into this category. Conventional lovemaking, mostly above waist, leaving much to the imagination.

VERY SENSUAL — A cross between sensual and spicy, but goes beyond conventional lovemaking–would likely include below waist. A little more explicit.

SPICY — Even more explicit sex.

SEXY — Borders on erotic. Graphic sex.

SMOKIN’ HOT — Erotic — very graphic sex, nothing is taboo. Includes extreme language.

    1. Thanks, Gina! My cover designer, Erin Dameron-Hill at EDH Graphics is a fantastic artist! She always gets the right “feel” for each cover that is a clue to the tone of the story. I can’t say enough good things about her.
