USA Today Bestselling Author

Seasick. That’s how Jessie Todd feels when her best friend and boss, Finn O’Donnell, tells her that the Buoys will be featured on a popular fishing program—which just so happens to be hosted by a guy she used to date. She’s still friendly with her ex, but her new feelings for Finn are making things . . . complicated. His life is out on the sea, and though Jessie works at the resort, her paralyzing phobia of water keeps her on land, where she’s safe. To take a shot with Finn, she’ll need to face her fears—and her innermost desires—head-on.

Finn has been nursing a crush on Jess for a long time, so when she suddenly asks for swimming lessons, he dives right in. Holding her shaking hand as she steps into the ocean makes his heart swell—despite the sinking feeling that she’s just doing it to impress that smarmy TV host. Finn doesn’t trust anyone with his bruised and battered heart, but he’ll be forced to lay it all on the line to keep Jess from being the one that got away.

The Complete Hidden Secrets Saga in one collection!

Seventh Mark – Part 1 and Part 2

Beautiful, quiet Rouge is trying to figure out who she is and what she wants to be. With little knowledge about her past, she has questions but has never tried to find the answers.

Everything changes when she befriends a strangely intoxicating family. Siblings Grace and Michael, appear to have secrets which seem connected to Rouge. Her hunch is confirmed when a horrible incident occurs at party. Rouge may be the only one who can find the answer.

An ancient journal, a Siorghra necklace and a special mark force life-altering decisions for a girl who grew up unprepared to fight for her life or others.

All secrets have a cost and Rouge’s determination to find the truth can only lead to trouble…or something even more sinister.

Marked by Destiny

Sometimes the past isn’t what you expect it to be.

Rouge has survived the last months of school and is starting a new chapter after graduation. She wants answers to the questions about her past and is still hiding secrets from those she loves.

Her hope is to find what she needs in Niagara Falls so she can move forward in her relationship with Michael and have a chance to convince his family that she is worthy of him.

The ancient Grollic Book reveals another of its secrets, only to Rouge. She desperately wants to find the truth about her past. Nothing could have prepared her for what she’s about to learn.


The secrets of her past have been revealed, but Rouge’s life is still shrouded in mystery.
The Grollics want her dead, she’s forbidden to be with the boy she loves, and her brother–who is the enemy–may be the only one she can trust. The deeper she digs into the past, the more trouble awaits.

Can she find answers in the ancient journal she carries, or is she opening Pandora’s box?

Fate’s Intervention

How do choose between power of passion or the power of peace?

After finally coming face to face with her greatest foe, Bentos, Rogue has a decision to make. Joshua, the new grolics alpha has been labeled as her true mate, but her heart belongs to Michael.

Rouge joins Joshua with her brother to discover more about who she is and where to gain access to the true power of three..

What she finds growing within her will change everything. Power is queen, but love and new life is King.

Chosen Three

How do you choose between life, love and the future?
You can’t.

Rob’s missing. Rouge’s passed out.

Caleb just told her that Rob’s been taken away to be put down.

Oh yeah, and Rouge’s pregnant.

Wait, what?!

Rouge’s the Seventh Mark, Michael’s a guardian who’s already dead. How can he get her pregnant?

The high and mighty Caleb is even more determined now to stop Rouge and the abomination growing in her belly.

On the run from Caleb and the Higher Council, on a mission to save Rob, and at the same time trying to stop the dark angel Rouge summoned – the team must figure out what the Power of Three is before Bentos kills them all.

However, there’s a catch: if they go after the dark angel and kill it, anyone with angel blood in them will die. If they kill Bentos, there is rumor that all his offspring will die except the next Seventh Mark.

When everything looks lost, will there be any chance of hope for the future?

“WOW!! What a ride!! My new favorite author!!” -V.K.

The pit that should never have been disturbed…

Deep foundations are being dug on a City building site when some old brickwork is revealed. Part of it collapses, releasing a gust of air so foul that all the men nearby begin to choke and retch.

Finally the nauseous stench disperses and they discover a burial crypt dating back to the Great Plague of London in 1665. But these pit should never be disturbed.

But when the intruders begin to show horrifying symptoms – fever, nausea, revolting swellings – the true horror of the pit is revealed.

All die hideously within five days.

By opening a burial crypt that should never have been touched, they have unleashed an infection on the nation that the authorities must prevail to control. Ignoring the threat, the government warn the spreading of a Super-flu to attempt to contain the panic. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the infection.

Charity, a local radio station presenter, and Paul, a scientist, are determined to unveil the truth, and save lives.

But the powers from above are too strong.

Can the pair find some way to combine the power of science with the power of media? The infection is fast spreading, but Paul and Charity must endeavour to spread the word and find a cure.

All the while, one of the men from the building site has mysteriously disappeared and cannot be traced…

“Informative and interesting. An excellent history from a solid historian.” -James C.

What attracts men from 136 different nations to embrace the harsh military code of an army that requires them to lay down their lives for a country not their own, if ordered to do so by politicians whose language many of them hardly speak?

Douglas Boyd’s history of the Legion answers that question, with fifteen historic photographs and eleven battle/campaign maps.

Founded in 1831 to fight France’s colonial wars without spilling French blood, this mysterious army is today a world-class fighting force. Training is so tough that five recruits out of six are rejected, never to wear the coveted white kepi.

This is a world where fact exceeds the wildest fiction: men fighting literally to the last bullet at Camarón in Mexico in 1863; cooks and clerks with no parachute training volunteering to be dropped into beleaguered Dien Bien Phu in 1954 with the intention of dying beside their comrades; the paras who mutinied in Algeria to bring down the government of France; the heroes who dropped on Kolwezi to rescue thousands of European hostages.

“A new talent has come through the door, gun in hand…” -The Guardian

From the moment that the millionaire Joe Elevel enters the LA office of private detective Thomas Kyd, Kyd knows that this investigation will prove a little more challenging than the divorce cases from which he’s been making a living.

Elevel’s high-society world has crumbled. His genteel, philanthropic wife is dead by suicide, and the note she left behind hints at a terrible crime. ‘Charlotte knows’ she states…

But Charlotte – the Elevel’s daughter – has disappeared.

The case proves to be far more than just a family affair, however. Three days later Kyd finds himself dealing with ‘one suicide, three murders, and a case that had about as much symmetry as a half-digested pizza…’ and searching the darkest corners of the city to find the answers.

With both the bribe-taking Deputy Chief Granville and a professional hitman with no fingerprints working against him, solving the mystery proves a high-risk endeavour.

Even for tough, straight-talking Kyd, downtown Los Angeles has never been hotter, dirtier or more dangerous.

After witnessing the murder-suicide of his parents as a child, Noah suffers from a form of PTSD that has left him without emotion, without a conscience and without the ability to function as a normal human being. With the help of childhood friends, he learns to watch others around him and mimic their behaviors, in order to conceal the fact that his mind operates more like a computer that he has spent years programming. That program is what allows Noah to pass himself off as normal, by establishing parameters of right and wrong that are completely inviolable to him.

As a young adult, Noah finds structure in the U.S. Army, and becomes an excellent and exemplary soldier, but when his self-imposed programming is put to the test by the murderous acts of the superior officer, Noah finds himself quickly made expendable, charged with crimes he did not commit and facing the possibility of execution. Without any reasonable hope for a reprieve, Noah’s logic-based mind accepts his fate.

Sometimes, though, things are not all as they seem to be, and Noah is offered one chance to save himself. It was his disability, his lack of emotion, that made him the soldier he had become. Now, an ultrasecret organization known as E and E wants Noah’s talents, offering him a chance to survive…

As the most deadly assassin the world has ever known.

Acclaimed literary biographer Elizabeth Winston writes about long-dead heroes. So bad-boy rock icon Zander Freedman couldn’t possibly tempt her to write his memoir. Except the man is a mass of fascinating contradictions–manipulative, honest, gifted, charismatic and morally ambiguous. In short, everything she seeks in a biography subject. When in her life will she get another chance to work with a living legend? But saying yes to one temptation soon leads to another. Suddenly she’s having heated fantasies about her subject, fantasies this blue-eyed devil is only too willing to stoke.

She thought self-control was in her DNA; after all, she grew up a minister’s daughter. She thought wrong.

Rock star Zander Freedman has been an outlier–many would say an outcast–for most of his life. But there’s no disaster he can’t overcome, from the breakup of his band to the inevitable damage to his reputation. His Resurrection Tour is shaping up to be his greatest triumph–if his golden voice holds out. Contracting a respected biographer is simply about creating more buzz. Elizabeth’s integrity is the key to consolidating his legacy as one of rock’s greats. All the damn woman has to do is write down what he tells her. Not force him to think. Or encourage the good guy struggling to get out.

And certainly not make him fall in love for the first time in his life. Turns out he is scared of something: being known.
