“A sweet and sexy modern-day spin on the classic Cinderella story.” —Heidi McLaughlin, New York Times bestselling author

New York Times, USA Today, Top 100 Amazon, Barnes And Noble and Apple iBooks Bestselling Author

Forced to flee to the United States with his siblings after their parents’ assassination, Crown Prince Colin Sinclair takes it upon himself to become the caretaker of his family while hiding out near Charlotte, North Carolina. But after a decade in hiding, the secret’s out and Parliament demands that Colin wed a princess of their choosing. Unwilling to play their game, Colin decides to marry an American instead, and he has the perfect candidate in mind.

As a home-service professional, Della Hughes doesn’t believe in storybook endings. But when her best friend and secret crush reveals that he’s a flesh-and-blood prince, she doesn’t know what to think. Still, she’ll do anything for Colin, including becoming his wife–in name only, of course. But when their plans to stay purely platonic go by the wayside, their fake honeymoon turns all too real. After a week of white-hot nights, Della can no longer deny her feelings–not with a happily ever after so tantalizingly close.

“Convoluted, exciting, multi-layered and decidedly human! I’ve become a fan and will be looking for more Cal Corwin cases.” -Susan H.

Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

When a blackmailed drag queen walks into Cal Corwin’s P. I. agency, she quickly throws herself into the investigation, but with each new clue she finds the case gets murkier, its web of lies more tangled. When murder rears its ugly head, it becomes clear more is at stake than money, and Cal must watch her own back even as she tries to find the culprit.

In A Bind is the second book in the new P. I. mystery series from D. D. VanDyke, though they can be read in any order. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, Cal Corwin novels brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, oddball family and unexpected allies.

“Space battles, politics, mystery and suspense. All well crafted.” -Mark S.

With a patchwork fleet under his command, Supreme Commander Middleton now faces the daunting task of dealing with an Imperial Fleet’s seemingly unstoppable advance into the Gorgon Sectors.

But the first order of business for any military commander in Middleton’s position is to gather intelligence. So before they rush off to engage the enemy in a battle for the fate of the Gorgon Sectors, Middleton and his people must learn more about the mysterious nature of the Gorgon Conflict–and as each piece of the puzzle falls into place, a cloud of darkness appears at the edge of the galaxy which threatens to swallow the Gorgon Sectors whole.

A mysterious figure known only as ‘The Crafter’ seems to only add to the increasingly murky picture in which MIddleton and his people find themselves, but it may be this same engimatic character who proves instrumental in the Alliance Gorgonus’ ultimate victory in the escalating war with the Empire of Man.

But for the first time in Middleton’s career he has the resources, the crew, and perhaps the most crucial element of all–surprise–on his side necessary to bring a fair fight to the Imperial Fleet. And that’s exactly what he intends to do.

Meanwhile, on the far Rim, a secretive Imperial mission is under way to pierce the veil of darkness beyond the Gorgon Sectors–a veil behind which a threat of unimaginable danger might lurk. While fleets of warships vie for control of the Gorgon Sectors, the Imperial operatives will try to discover who their real enemy is–and their discovery may shake the galaxy itself.

Will Middleton be able to keep the ramshackle Alliance Gorgonus from flying apart at the seams before they close to grips with the enemy? Will Kongming’s personal transformation continue to strip away his remaining humanity? And will the Empire manage to regain the initiative, or will Middleton deal them a crippling blow before they even know he is hunting them?

“A wonderful story of the deep love of family that I thoroughly enjoyed. For fans of women’s fiction this is one you don’t want to miss.” -Darlene @ Peeking Between the Pages

Her Sister’s Shoes is the story of three sisters—Samantha, Jackie, and Faith—who struggle to balance the demands of career and family while remaining true to themselves.

Samantha Sweeney has always been the glue that holds her family together, their go-to girl for love and support. When an ATV accident leaves her teenage son in a wheelchair, she loses her carefully constructed self-control.

In the after-gloom of her dreaded fiftieth birthday and the discovery of her husband’s infidelity, Jackie realizes she must reconnect with her former self to find the happiness she needs to move forward.

Faith lacks the courage to stand up to her abusive husband. She turns to her sisters for help, placing all their lives at risk.

In the midst of their individual challenges, the Sweeney sisters must cope with their mother’s mental decline. Is Lovie in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, or is her odd behavior normal for a woman her age? No one, including Lovie, understands her obsession with a rusty key she wears around her neck.

Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Jax.

Buried, By my family’s fame. Dying to escape the limelight, And finally, I do.

Being raised as a Jayne, I’m under constant scrutiny. The rock band my brothers formed makes it impossible to stay under the radar. Paparazzi, tabloids, rabid fans–you name it and I’ve got it. It all makes me sick. But getting shipped off to crazy Aunt Betty’s house in my senior year of high school isn’t any better. After all, there isn’t a stray kid or pet in the world that my aunt wouldn’t take in.

Then I meet her. She’s cautious, suspicious, and not interested in me at all. But that’s fine by me. Sivan Holt may be beautiful and intelligent, but she’s nothing I’m looking for.

Sivan.

Drowning, In my past. Struggling to feel settled. And finally, I do.

Growing up in the foster care system, I longed for a sense of belonging. All I wanted was a place to call home.

At the age of seventeen, I’m finally starting to feel it here. Home.

When he comes along, it unsettles me. I don’t want him to ruin everything we’ve built–everything that matters. Jax Jayne is arrogant, privileged, and I want nothing to do with him. But those green eyes of his keep drawing me in. If I let down my walls, will it be my final undoing?

“Mr. Humphreys has done his research, and the resulting historical setting is well presented, with a lot of information woven into the narrative.” -Historical Novel Society

Dublin Harbour, Ireland, 1793:

When the convict ship Boddington left Ireland’s shores Patrick Rourke felt as though he was sailing away from his soul as well as from his home land.

Not so very long before he had everything to live for – he was young, strong and healthy, had a loving family and had won the affection of his sweetheart Catherine.

Then, a relatively minor confrontation with the occupying British Redcoats escalated beyond all foreseeable consequences. Patrick became a pawn in the political aspirations of the United Irishmen and suffered the wrath of the British dominated Irish penal system.

With everything he held dear seemingly lost, Patrick found himself thrust into an emotional and physical journey that saw him plummet into the depths of rage and despair as he was transported to the penal colony of New South Wales.

Would he ever see his family or his beloved Ireland again ? And Catherine – all his future revolved around Catherine – what could he hope to offer her now ?

Patrick’s Journey contains an uplifting message of the resilience of the human spirit. It is an historical fiction novel based on the real life history of one of Australia’s early Irish convict settlers.

Multi Award-Winning Author

YIKES – a Vatican investigation!!! Whatever shall we do?

Mystic Tea is the inspirational and sometimes comical story of six quirky women living in a rural monastery—all that remain of a community that once thrived. Lost in an emotional and spiritual fog, they struggle daily with faith, friendship, loyalty, obedience, crushing debt, and now an official Vatican investigation. Only a miracle can save them. So where are the miracles?

Can a motley crew of ragtag sisters save the day with unorthodox artistries and magical brews?

There are few possible, yet unlikely, channels for miraculous intervention: Mike–the stern but earnest prioress; Gemma–the unstable 30-year-old novitiate with a dark secret; Arielle–the endearing 20-year-old jailhouse convert; and Mother Augusta–the unorthodox elderly mystic who performs unsanctioned rituals and brews her own magical teas. How these eccentric sisters will survive the Vatican’s inquiry is anybody’s guess.

This is a contemporary love story between young and old, franchised and disenfranchised, pedestrian and mystic. It is a tale of female empowerment as the sisters struggle to find their way out of the holy crucible in which they are entangled. Miracles are redefined as crises share boundaries with miraculous transformations, and an oppressive past makes way for a surprising future.

When her sisters suddenly drop back into her world wanting a job and a place to live, who could blame her for being angry? Sick of always doing what’s right, Jessie is ready to shake things up. Even if it’s wrong. And wrong has a name.

Enter the sexy Cade Stone, new to town and opening a snowmobile repair shop with his two equally hot brothers. Cade has an edge and a temper.

But somehow, he found himself caving to family pressure and doing “the right thing,” no matter how much he hated it.

Neither were looking, and they’re completely wrong for each other. But sometimes wrong and right blur and magic happens.
