“Unlike so many murder mysteries, this one is full of misadventures and lots of crazy stuff happening, but also has a happy ending.” -Scrappy

USA Today Bestselling Author

In the city that never sleeps, Dr. Piper’s search for the perfect wedding dress turns into the search for the perfect murderer.

When famous diva Veronica Forks drops dead after eating a bag of Ken’s Killer Kale Chips, suspicion falls on former-mafioso-turned-surfer-dude Ken. According to Piper’s PI flashcards, Ken has the motive (she witnessed a tiff between him and Veronica), the means (the kale chips), and the opportunity (he was at the expo).

But Piper’s sure the surfer-dude can’t be a killer and, as any good PI knows, the flashcards aren’t always right. Plus Brownie, Piper’s pet pot-bellied pig, is addicted to Ken’s Killer Kale Chips, and if Ken’s arrested, Brownie will never snack again! So Piper takes it upon herself to root out the murderer who’s adding “killer seasoning” to kale chips before he strikes again.

In the South before the Civil War, one man’s radical ideas and breakthrough invention threaten the townspeople’s privileged way of life, based on slavery and power. The result is murder.

Tom Edmunton, the science-minded son of a cotton planter, has designed the precursor of the tractor in antebellum Louisiana. He foresees a new age of mechanized farming that will empty the fields of men and supplant the South’s slavery system. But the planters of his town don’t like his big ideas about changing their world or the intensity with which he’s pursuing them.

As Tom hears the call of the new age, he also feels the pull of two women. Rachel, a senator’s daughter, loves him, but will she break with her family to stand by his side if the town rebukes him? Solo, a rebellious mulatto slave, despises Tom, along with every other master. Rachel is free, but is her spirit chained? Solo is chained, but is her spirit free? Will Tom’s romantic inclinations further uproot the town’s conventions and notions of subjugation?

Tensions between Tom and the planters peak, and the tractor is stolen. Then a shocking murder sets into motion inextricably linked events and revelations that will change life as they know it for Tom, Rachel, and Solo.

Lauren Carrington is an aspiring author who supposedly has it all. The life. The house. The seemingly perfect marriage to Michael.

With her husband’s blessing, she uproots herself to attend a creative writing course halfway across the country in the hopes of breaking through the writer’s block she’s been battling, unaware she is about to inadvertently put everything she treasures in grave jeopardy.

For her first in-class assignment, she gets partnered up with the alluring and charismatic Dean Bergeron…

Their undeniable connection, mutual passion, and literary talents, paired with Lauren’s newfound boldness and prowess, soon form the foundation for a catastrophic upheaval of the only life Lauren has ever known.

But is it actually Lauren’s life being thrown into turmoil? The lines become blurred when she introduces herself as Sarah, the main character from the book she’s been struggling to write, and boundaries are quickly crossed as Lauren explores her new persona more intimately.

When her two worlds collide, will she be able to distinguish…

Which life is real and which is fiction?

Can Jace find a way to forgive before it’s too late?

Jace Lovell only has one thing left after his fiancé abandons him at the altar: his job at Horseshoe Home Ranch. He throws himself into becoming the best foreman the ranch has ever had—and that includes hiring an interior designer to make the ranch owner’s wife happy.

Belle Edmunds is back in Gold Valley after she lost her job at a prestigious design firm in California. She’s working for a conglomerate, but she’s desperate to build a portfolio that she can use to start her own firm in Montana.

The spark between them now that they’re adults can’t be denied, and as Jace and Belle attempt to work together, they also fight their growing attraction to each other. But Jace isn’t anywhere near forgiving his fiancé, and he’s not sure he’s ready for a new relationship with someone as fiery and beautiful as Belle. Can she employ her patience while he figures out how to forgive so they can find their own brand of happily-ever-after?

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

In this medieval dark fantasy action novel we follow thieves Maskan and Sand in their quest to survive the wrath of a king. The Nine Worlds have been sundered from each other and the gods during the goddess Hel’s War thousands of years ago, but in the land of Midgard the years have passed relatively peacefully.

For Red Midgard, times are changing, however. The harsh, freedom-loving northern land faces the animosity of the mighty High King, but also a threat of war with its few allies, as King Morag is rumored to look for any reason to go to war with his allies. Maskan and Sand, thieves of Dagnar, discover a web of conspiracies to topple the king before it is too late, and soon, they have a good reason to tie their fates with those who would fight the king.

But not all is as it seems, and layers of truths and lies make the road dark and dangerous. Our heroes must navigate very murky waters of betrayal, elemental magic, love, and loyalty to save their land and to find revenge.
