“This story is full of passion and mystery, yet at its core, I think it’s one of the sweetest love stories I’ve read in awhile.” -The Kindle Book Review

Greed, prejudice and a stolen identity. In the four weeks since her guardians’ death, Eulogy Foster has lost everything. Penniless and alone she seeks the help of her estranged brother, Lord Lucien Devlin.

But Devlin throws Eulogy onto the streets and the mercy of a passing stranger, Jack Huntley, who becomes an unlikely ally. As Eulogy seeks the truth behind her birth, she is drawn into the world of art and artists, where her morals are challenged and nothing is as it seems.

Jack Huntley: bitter, cynical and betrayed in love. He believes women are devious, scheming, untrustworthy creatures – and when he rescues a naïve Miss from being raped, his life is about to change forever.

There is something about Miss Foster that haunts him and challenges his emotions. But despite their growing attraction, Eulogy will not share her secret, which means he cannot trust her. Caught in a deadlock, both denying their true feelings, events take a sinister turn as someone seeks to silence Eulogy…forever.

“Smith combines a powerful heroine, creepily believable villain, and rich New Orleans setting.” -Booklist

THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN THE WORLD IS TRYING TO KILL HER…That would be the Rev. Errol Jacomine, crazy as a fox that just ate a loon, and more dangerous than a cell full of serial killers. She’s Detective Skip Langdon, the New Orleans cop who’s twice smashed his criminal endeavors, yet each time he’s managed to slip away.

Now he’s mad. In both senses of the word. And he has the connections to have her killed—or worse, those she loves.

After one near-miss and several nasty threats, Skip is driven by fear that she’ll lose the people dearest to her. Despite finding herself disgraced in her own home town (seems Jacomine knows how to frame as well as kill), she goes on the hunt for the kind of maniac with a gift for conning people and the extreme makeover to make it work.

THREE ANGRY WOMEN, EACH ONE DISSED, SCORNED, AND HELL-BENT…But by now Jacomine’s madness has escalated to the point that he’s finally gone too far with too many people. Before it’s over, more than one person’s stalking him, and some are women feeling as mean as their quarry. If Langdon doesn’t get there first, there’ll be a bloodbath.

If she does, only one person will walk away—and Jacomine’s as lucky as he’s ruthless.

“Well writen and easy to read. The story line is great. Really stirs the imagination.” Edward C.

ROME. The mere mention of the name instills images of grandeur. The mighty empire was a guiding light for the civilized world for a thousand years. Was that by chance or careful design?

A psychiatric patient named Hastelloy has the answer. He believes he was there for it all: Caesar, legions, gladiators. According to his tale even the great gods Jupiter, Vesta and the advent of Christianity were not immune to his influence. Is he crazy or is it still crazy to ignore him?

Meanwhile, an NSA agent closes in on the location of his abducted partner and answers to the age old question – are we alone in the universe? To gain enlightenment he will have to face specters from his own past to safeguard himself, his family, and possibly the entire planet. The stakes have never been higher for him or his clandestine agency.

Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Jesus Christ. You may know the names and dates, but not the why or how. This gripping thriller will challenge everything you thought you knew about the most dynamic era in human history and draw into question if there will be a future. Once again, the Origins of all will be revealed.

Ariane has always kept a diary and sees no reason to stop just because she is now a ghost. Out sightseeing, she peers through a portal into the real world and discovers the love of her life in bed with her best friend.

Fuming and dreadfully unhappy, Ariane badly needs something to take her mind off her troubles. So she is delighted when she is offered the position and is very interested in her new client. Gigi is a young girl with a mixed race background living in Swinging Sixties London.

Gigi needs her help at this moment of her life because she is about to make a decision which will have world changing consequences.

Ariane has a wonderful time choosing the right clothes for her new role because, as the wardrobe mistress asks her, “ if you were a Sensitive, which would you prefer to see ”” someone who looks perfectly ordinary or a bloody figure, with his head under his arm?”

Her task is to ensure that Gigi marries the right man and has the right baby or a major medical advance will not happen. The alternative doesn’t bear thinking about. Unfortunately Ariane finds it very difficult to influence her client, so she turns for help to the Guardians of Gigi’s friends including the gorgeous Ivan a mysterious figure who makes a pass at her.

Afraid of being hurt again, Ariane holds Ivan at arm’s length until several things happen to change her mind. One of them occurs when she goes to a costume ball in Heaven, dressed in a Southern Belle crinoline. Ivan arrives wearing the uniform of a Confederate officer, a perfect match for her. Ariane is swayed by the romance of the setting and has a wonderful time with him.

She is worried, though, by his reputation as an incorrigible flirt..On earth, Ariane and Gigi go to parties, have a narrow escape from charging police horses at an Anti-Vietnam War Demonstration, visit nightclubs and enjoy themselves thoroughly. Gigi meets two boy-friends and has to choose between them.

Unfortunately she falls deeply in love with the wrong man and disaster looms. Ariane has to find a way to shake Gigi’s loyalty and conviction, which is difficult. The book has been called a ghost story with a difference. The main character is dead, but full of life. Heaven is a place where there are shopping malls, cafes, chocolate and champagne.

Famous people rub shoulders with bemused newcomers. 1960s London is lively, fun but has a darker side. The themes of racial prejudice and illegitimacy run through the book, both big issues in that era. Ariane is a strong woman in a very unfamiliar situation. She is determined to do her best for her client and really empathises with her.

Her problem is to find the right method to influence Gigi. Gigi’s problems stem from love and loyalty. It is hard for her to believe evil of her lover, until the case against him is proved. Will Ariane be able to fulfil her task? Will Gigi marry the right man? Will Ariane be able to forget her disillusionment and find a heavenly romance?
