An aging renegade. An aging tyrant. And a young woman who refuses to share her secrets with anyone.

For years, Heldrick has moved back and forth across the connection between two Earths, ours and his own–years stretched by a time differential into well over a century in the land of his birth. In Heldrick’s world, a group of altered humans called quistrils have completely derailed history, holding the rest of humanity in an agrarian, near-feudal state. Heldrick was born one of these quistrils, and is the only one to have opposed the ruling elite.

But now the connection between worlds has collapsed. Without a safe place for launching attacks, Heldrick must change his tactics. Bit by bit, he and his friend Grayvle take the first, secret steps toward overthrowing the Citadel from within–a process which could take centuries, and whose fruition they never expect to see.

Then they rescue a young woman, Estrienn, from quistrils taking her to the Citadel to serve in the communal harem known as the Nest. Grateful, Estrienn wants to help them in their work–but she refuses to tell them who she really is, where she’s from, or what she was doing outside after curfew. More worrying than that: during the rescue, Grayvle was recognized, and the quistrils of the Citadel–especially Pandir, the new Ascendant–are now aware that the pair of them did not escape to our world before the passage collapsed. With their presence revealed, everything they are trying to do suddenly becomes ten times harder.

At the same time, Heldrick is puzzled by another odd thing: he doesn’t have nearly as much gray in his hair as a quistril his age should….

LA Times Bestselling Author


Not to mention sharp, cutting wit. Detective Peter King and movie star Ovsanna Moore are the sexiest tongue-in-cheek crime-solving duo since MOONLIGHTING hit the air waves in the ‘80s. But they may remind you more of TRUE BLOOD’s Sookie and Eric than Maddie and David—because one of them’s a vampyre. And like Sookie’s Bon Temps, their Los Angeles has its fair share of shapeshifting sometime-humans.

Ovsanna’s the successful owner of her own Hollywood film studio and the star of 17 blockbuster horror films, plus three, sadly, that went straight to video. But even vampyres have bad days. Though never fat days or bad hair days—she looks pretty great for 450. And in those four and a half centuries she’s pretty much seen everything, formed an opinion about it, and developed the kind of worldly-wise wit the late Joan Rivers only dreamed of.

Peter, on the other hand, is a Beverly Hills cop firmly rooted in human affairs, from the domestic issues of his lively Italian family to the romantic ones of his neighbor, snake dancer Suzie Q. Though Ovsanna’s had flings with everyone from Genghis Khan to Errol Flynn, Peter’s got what it takes to catch her eye and hold her interest. And he’s one hell of a detective. He’s also a consummate master of spin, concealing what he knows about the world of vampyres, werewolves, and shapeshifters while solving the crimes they commit.

“Wonderful heartwarming romance.” -Pamela M.

A reckless romance brings Diana Prescott to Gull Harbor and pride makes her stay. Then she meets Will Applegate. Too sexy, too perfect and certainly too good for her, given her history. Women of all ages adore the man whose blue eyes can heat up faster than a July beach day.

Still, men are seldom what they seem, or so Diana’s learned. But an ice cream tour of southern Michigan is hard to pass up. Will brings out the best in her. She even volunteers for Sunday afternoon dances at the nursing home where Will’s the administrator. She can handle men over seventy with bowties and bald spots. Of course, Will hangs around. Of course he wants more than a dance.

Turns out Diana and Will are good together, like turkey and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy…until an accident mars the one thing Diana always had going for her. Her delicate blonde beauty. She shuts down and Will is at a loss. Not a good time for his sister to dump a surly niece on him. But Diana recognizes teen-age abandonment. The challenge calls for resources more than skin deep. A lesson Will and Diana might learn together.

Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn’t get much better than this…John Drake writes beautifully, and you’ll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages.” –Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author

It’s 1798 and in London there is political turmoil.

With the reigning ‘mad’ King George III a figure of public ridicule, the Prince Regent ‘Prinny’ is living a riotous life, which touches the edges of London’s underworld.

When an incriminating etched print is made and circulated in a book by the Lycanthropic Society, renowned thief-catcher Samuel Slym from Aldgate is put on the case to find those responsible and retrieve all existing prints before Prinny is subjected to public humiliation.

Meanwhile across the Channel and revered by the French military, General Napoleon Bonaparte is waiting for a chance to invade England, and his fleet is ready to strike and land.

Using the latest technology, the telegraph signal, there is a new opportunity to hatch a plan to conquer England at last and he employs sinister spies, among them the charming, but cold-blooded Sukolowsky.

Bonaparte is not the only one with an eye for conquest.

Lord Glenfeshie, survivor of the Battle of Culloden, leads the aged Highlanders and Jacobites, waiting for a chance to seize back power for the pretender, James Charles Stuart, son of Bonnie Prince Charlie.

They plot in secret, waiting to take advantage of the weak king and political instability in London under Pitt’s government.

Followers of the old Highlanders will stop at nothing to reinstate a Catholic as king.

As Samuel Slym follows up his leads to track down Prinny’s print he uncovers far more than he expected at the start of his commission, and his quest unwittingly leads him higher in society than he believed possible, as well as rekindling an old fiery liaison with the mysterious Lady Sarah Coignwood.

Can Slym get to the bottom of the plot to bring scandal to the Prince before it is too late?

And will Napoleon succeed in his plan to conquer the ‘Rosbif Navy’?

Charging headlong from the murky backstreets of London to the country palaces of English aristocracy and finally the outposts of Kent, Drake’s novel spins a gripping yarn of deception and scandal, patriotism and pride, bringing to life legendary characters of the 18th century, as well as some less well known to the annals of English history…

How do you tell a man there is something wrong with his child?

In THE FORGOTTEN CHILD, Brad Friessen wasn’t looking to love again. But what he got was a woman who shook his lonely bitter world upside down, and touched him in a way no other woman could.

Emily Nelson, a courageous young mother, ends a loveless, bitter marriage and strikes out on her own. She answers an ad as a cook and live-in caregiver to a three-year-old boy on a local ranch. Ranch owner Brad Friessen hires and moves in Emily and her daughter. But Emily soon discovers something’s seriously wrong with the boy, and the reclusive, difficult man who hired her can’t see the behavior and how delayed his son is. So Emily researches until she stumbles across what she suspects are the soft signs of autism. Now she must tell him, give him hope, and help him come to terms with this neurological disorder—to take the necessary steps to get his child the help he needs.

As their lives become intertwined, their attraction is unavoidable—a connection sparks between them. But just as they’re getting close, Brad’s estranged wife, Crystal, returns after abandoning the family two years earlier. Among the shock and confusion is one disturbing question Brad can’t shake: How does Crystal know so much of his personal business, the inner working of the ranch, and Emily’s relationship with his son?

Crystal must’ve had a plan, as she somehow gains the upper hand, driving a wedge in the emotional bond forged between Brad, Emily, and the children. The primary focus for care and therapy of three-year-old Trevor is diverted. The lengths to which Crystal will go, the lies, the greed, just to keep what’s hers, are nothing short of cold and calculating. Emily’s forced out of the house. Brad fights to save his boy, to protect what’s his, and struggles over his greatest sacrifice—Emily, and the haunting question: Has he lost her forever?
