Sequel to The Wish List & The Four Proposals

A year after settling into their life together in Toronto, Kelsie and Laken have the chance to get away. Escaping to sunny Hawaii to visit Laken’s parents, their only intentions are to soak up the sun and leave their responsibilities behind. With Melissa convinced they’re going to get married without her and Laken’s parents anxious to integrate Kelsie into their ‘one with nature’ way of life, though, relaxation may not be all that easy to come by. When new love enters their lives, how will it affect Kelsie and Laken’s future together? And is there anywhere far enough away from their meddling friends?

 photo The-Innocents.jpg For thousands of years, they have roamed the darkness, subsisting on the blood of men - the deraphs - though most people would only know them as vampires. For thousands of years, they have been hunted, pursued in secret by scores of men who tried and failed to exterminate them. For thousands of years, the fight has been fair. Now, a group of North Atlantic hunters have discovered a weakness - the synjuments - a subspecies of humans with whom the deraphs share a mortal link. Far more vulnerable to attack, these innocents pose an imminent threat to the clan of Haydn, a thousand-year-old deraph whose unsettled history with Lilith poses its own pressing complications. To prevent their extinction, Haydn and her clan are forced to take on a paradoxical assignment, as guardians of those they are inclined by their very natures to seduce and consume. The Innocents is a stand-alone urban dark fantasy novel in the Faith & Fury collection. The Faith & Fury collection is a group of stand-alone novels and series set in the same universe, sharing a common canon.

 photo Club-Storyville.jpg Elizabeth has been raised in propriety, and in 1944 Richmond there are things a lady simply doesn't do. Her grandmother Mary - Nan to those close to her - does them all. She drinks what she wants, speaks when she wants, and doesn't hesitate to help a colored boy on the street with no concern for who might see. In awe of her grandmother, Elizabeth also wants to be a good daughter, and no one is more concerned with what people think than her mother, so different from Nan it's sometimes hard to believe she came from the woman's womb. When Nan gets sick and needs full-time care, she invites yankee nurse Ariel Brandt into their lives. Smart, funny and beautiful, Ariel is a lot like Nan in a lot of ways, and Elizabeth is drawn to her at once. As her feelings for Ariel grow out of her control, Elizabeth finds herself torn between her own desires and the deeply-ingrained rules of the society in which she lives. Her brother at war, a new suitor trying to court her, and Ariel keeping a safe distance, Elizabeth is charged with an errand. Nan wants her to travel to New Orleans to find someone she once knew and pass along a wooden box that holds an important letter. Can the unexpected journey into Nan's past help Elizabeth find her future?

 photo WishList.jpg Book 1 of the Meddling Friends: Kelsie Series Kelsie almost has it all - a supportive family, a business she loves, and a close-knit group of friends who can be as meddlesome as they are fabulous. The one thing she doesn't have is a girlfriend, and, as the last unmarried member of her troop, her friends aren't about to stand for that. During a night of drunken frivolity, they concoct a plan. They're going to send a letter to Santa on Kelsie's behalf, asking for a girlfriend for Christmas. It's all fun and good humor for Kelsie until, the very next day, she meets Randa, a seemingly perfect woman who possesses all the attributes her friends specifically requested for her in their letter. When a chance encounter brings another woman into Kelsie's life, she begins to wonder if perfect is necessarily right and if Santa could have been way off the mark.
