June Releases!

Dates du Jour

Book Three in The Matchmaking Chef Series

Speed dating? Speed eating is more like it. When Suzie sets up lunch date after lunch date for Lyssa Larkin, Legend’s homegrown homecoming queen of 1992, she knows she’s about bit off more than she can chew. Lyssa inspects and rejects her dates in two bites and then sends them on their way. Suzie wonders if she really wants to date or just eat two lunches, and worries that soon Lyssa’s hips won’t fit on her dainty chairs.

That is, until Suzie takes a risk with a man the exact opposite of what Lyssa describes as “perfect for her.” When he won’t leave when Lyssa dismisses him, or let her get near his plate with her fork, Suzie knows she’s scored again.

Dates du Jour is coming end of June. Stay tuned!

The Quest
Book Three in The Legend of Blackbeard's Chalice series

Jackson Porter is a man driven by a need to fulfill his mother, Claire Winslow Porter’s, dying request. He seeks answers about the origins of his life as well as the imaginary lover who has haunted his nights for years. At his mother’s deathbed he is challenged to meet his fate. His future, she says, lies in a place called Ohio, even though it is miles and centuries away from his barrier island home in 1745. The land is his legacy and should he desire to seek it, belongs to him. She urges him to see the circle complete, to claim his destiny.

In the year 2032, Kari Upton is driven to fight federal sanctions and stay-the-course on her political aspirations to save her land and her crops. She admits, even if only to herself, that her upcoming marriage is one of convenience. Marrying Tye Gentry will save her Ohio farmland. She sees no other way to gain power than to marry him and ride on his father, Richard Gentry’s, coattails all the way to the state legislature.

But Jackson upsets the plan when he time-travels forward and bursts into Kari’s world in the middle of her wedding. Both frightened and mesmerized by the Jackson, she emotionally turns tale and runs – but not before she hides him away in a secret chamber of her home, before Tye and Richard can kill him.

Also coming end of June! Watch for excerpts coming soon.
