“Wuthering Heights meets East of Eden.” -The Wall Street Journal

New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Pasadena tells the story of Linda Stamp, a fishergirl born in 1903 on a coastal onion farm, and the three men who change her life: her jealous brother, Edmund; Bruder, the orphan Linda’s father brings home from World War I; and a Pasadena orange rancher named Willis Poore.

The novel spans Linda’s adventurous and romantic life, weaving the tales of her Mexican mother and her German-born father with those of the rural Pacific Coast of her youth and of the small, affluent city, Pasadena, that becomes her home.

Pasadena is a novel of passion and history, about a woman and a place in perpetual transformation.

“An artistic, sympathetic imagining of the life of a 19th-century woman who made headlines for all the wrong reasons.” -Kirkus Reviews

Award-Winning Author

The Silver Baron’s Wife traces the rags-to-riches-to-rags life of Colorado’s Baby Doe Tabor (Lizzie).

This fascinating heroine worked in the silver mines and had two scandalous marriages, one to a philandering opium addict and one to a Senator and silver baron worth $24 million in the late 19th century. A divorcée shunned by Denver society, Lizzie raised two daughters in a villa where 100 peacocks roamed the lawns, entertained Sarah Bernhardt when the actress performed at Tabor’s Opera House, and after her second husband’s death, moved to a one-room shack at the Matchless Mine in Leadville.

She lived the last 35 years of her life there, writing down thousands of her dreams and noting visitations of spirits on her calendar. Hers is the tale of a fiercely independent woman who bucked all social expectations by working where 19thcentury women didn’t work, becoming the key figure in one of the West’s most scandalous love triangles, and, after a devastating stock market crash destroyed Tabor’s vast fortune, living in eccentric isolation at the Matchless Mine.

Duty or desire? Dragon Lord Ivan Sarkany has a bitter choice: He can seize curvaceous Christina — who has as many notches on her bedposts as he does — and fulfill his heart’s desires. Or he can find a sweet, untouched virgin to carry on the Sarkany dynasty.

Billionaire playboy Dragon Lord Ivan Sarkany has been launched on his quest for his destined bride by the prophetic words of a Maori Dragon Lord. (Dragon’s Successor)

Dragonesses-born are rarer than hen’s teeth. Every dragon knows that. They have to transform a virgin into a fertile dragoness in order to have firelings. But a one-night stand with wanton woman-of-the-world Christina has Lord Ivan craving her delectable contours instead of looking for an untouched bride.

BBW Christina is the first dragoness born to the wealthy House of Lindorm in 7 centuries. This priceless beauty is earmarked for the eldest son of a duke, even though her heart and body hunger for unsuitable second son Ivan.

As intrigue threatens the Guild of Dragons, Ivan and Christina must battle the opposition of both their families. Christina must choose between her heart and her heritage. Alpha male Ivan must risk his life in the Quest set for him by Christina’s Viking Dragon House, and prove his love for his curvy dragoness outweighs his rival’s coronet.

Meanwhile, the first Alvarez grandchild is about to be born while Lee is planning her very own Christmas wedding; or rather letting her mother plan it. When Lee finds the CEO hanging by the neck in his boardroom wearing nothing but baby blue boxer shorts, she has to ask herself, was it suicide? Or was it murder?

If so, was the saboteur responsible, one of his business partners, or even his famous rock star ex-wife? There are too many suspects and the bodies start piling up just in time for Christmas.

“Roping the Cowboy was not only filled with adventure, but it’s probably the first contemporary romance story I’ve read that was sexy without being dirty.” -Shelley W.

Environmental Engineer Darby Brewster needs Kester Ranch to gain the coveted position of Vice President of Brewster Oil, and her father’s approval. She’s worked hard to get where she is, and she refuses to allow a cowboy, as good looking as he is, or the cute boy that comes with him, to derail her climb up the corporate ladder. But a woman could dream about having it all, couldn’t she?

Rancher Fargo Kester doesn’t appreciate Darby’s repeated attempts to persuade his family to allow an oil drilling rig on their property, but that doesn’t stop him from speculating on her other…qualities. Like how much his son adores her, or how well she blends into life on the ranch. He doesn’t have time for romance, though, not since his dad died three months ago leaving him responsible for his family’s livelihood. Nor the inclination. Jayce’s mother destroyed all trace of hope for that.

Can Fargo convince Darby that the ranch needs her more than a rusty old drill? That he needs her? Could she embrace a quiet life on the ranch and fuse her love for the cowboy with the career of her dreams? Will the cowboy get his second chance at love?

If you can’t handle it, leave.

Welcome to Stark Springs, Colorado, home to the most talented young athletes in the world.

When Roxie Slade snaps into a pair of skis, there’s no one on Sugarville Mountain in Vermont who can keep up with her. Not even the boys.

Entering as a high school junior, Roxie can’t wait to learn from renowned coaches and train with the fastest ski racers from all over the globe. But upon arrival, Roxie discovers that Stark Springs lives under its own set of rules, and it appears one boy plays dictator.

Ryker Black is not friendly and Roxie cannot fathom why everyone wants to be his friend. Sure, he’s gorgeous and rides a snowboard like it’s his fifth limb, but he’s cold, ruthless, and holds way too much power over the Stark Springs population. Roxie won’t put up with it. She’s here to train, and she doesn’t care about impressing anyone off the slopes. The only problem? Ryker Black doesn’t permit defiance. Not without consequences.

Are dogs four-legged humans?

Some time ago, dogs became as interwoven in the American culture as baseball, apple pie and the Fourth of July. In fact, most dogs have trumped evolution itself and jumped straight to being four legged humans where they are adorned with human names, designer outfits and fed diets that would confound even the best nutritionist. In most cases, we’ve granted them our human intelligence and our sacred human emotions as well. They are no longer dogs to us, they’re family! Yet, for all that man has done to carve the wolf from the wild to create a surrogate human, today’s dog is still a wolf at heart and the accompanying instincts borne from such ancestry defines how the dog approaches its world.

The most damaging problem associated with dog ownership today.

The ontogeny of anthropomorphism, where we attach our human traits to our pets, is the most damaging and paralytic problem associated with dog ownership today. Believing in a fairy tale world where dogs possess the same moral consciousness and sense of altruism as attributed to humans has led to a drastic increase in leash laws, dogs being outlawed in a rising number of city and national parks, some breeds being banned in several states, an alarming escalation of aggression to humans, a rising cost of homeowner and business insurance, and a record number of clinically maladaptive dogs.

The control you always dreamed of.

This book is not a training book. It does not cover obedience topics such as heel, sit, down, stay, and come. Instead, it’s about righting the ship of American dog ownership by changing our perception of our dogs. It is about the author growing up in the Alaskan wild under the tutelage and guardianship of a Special Forces survival instructor who introduced him to the ways of wolves and the similarities they shared with dogs. It is about the wisdom and splendor of nature and the many life lessons she provides. Mostly, it’s about developing a deep understanding of the authors of your dog’s behavior; nature and the wolf. In doing so, you will truly learn who and what your dog really is and the why and how of its behavior.

In this book, you will learn the tools that nature gave them to survive and coexist in both the mountains and in our homes. You will learn how activating and deactivating natural impulses and mechanisms in your dog will lead to the harmonious existence and the control you always dreamed of.

Embrace the wild in your dog.

Most of all, you will come to embrace the wild in your dog as well as the grace and the peace that comes with this acceptance.

She’s the one women he knows he shouldn’t touch.

Jase – Dirty cop. That’s what everyone thinks of me. Only I know it’s a lie. They took my gun, my badge, my soul. I have one last shot to earn it back. My job? Go deep undercover to bring down a ruthless drug lord. It should have been easy. Until I met his niece, Devin. I crave her just like the drug her uncle’s trying to push. Pure and simple. She brings out every protective instinct I have. All the wicked ones too. Except acting on them could blow this investigation and ruin my chance to clear my name. And it might get us both killed.

He’s the hero she never knew she needed.

Devin – When Jase walked into my bar, he turned everything upside down. He made me feel things I can’t want. I have to walk away. Because, I know he’s a liar just like all the others. He’ll tell me he loves me then disappear. Plus, I know he’s hiding something. But, his smoldering touch and perfect kisses are almost enough to drive my doubts away. Almost.

The truth will either save them both, or burn them to the ground.
