Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best damn mother she can be.

The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn’t expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off–and steals his every thought thereafter.

When Brianna’s perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn’t believe in fate and a woman who doesn’t believe in true love find happiness in each other’s arms forever?

#1 Amazon Bestseller

She didn’t know he was watching. Until it was too late.

She’d walked this way hundreds of times before. She knew every twist and turn. She didn’t know this was the last time she’d ever walk this path.

Hidden deep in the forest, schoolgirl Felicity Parker is found carefully laid out on a rock with nothing but a freshly picked bunch of flowers next to her. The body lies just off a popular hiking route, and Detective Jenna Alton thinks the killer might be a visitor to the town, until another girl’s body is found at the local swimming pool, once again posed with a bunch of flowers.

Jenna recognizes the signs of a serial killer, and thinks it could be a local. As the town is gripped with fear, Jenna must examine each person the girls knew, and trust between neighbors starts to crumble.

Both girls went out on their own, and were found where they shouldn’t be. Were they taken by chance, or did they know their killer? How were they lured so far from safety? And can Jenna and her team find the killer before another life is lost?

#1 Amazon Bestseller

In 1803 the United States paid France fifty million francs and cancelled debts of a further eighteen million francs for the purchase of the Louisiana territory.

It was an action which would change the nature of the United States forever.

No longer was it hemmed into the states of the eastern seaboard, continually looking across the Atlantic, now it would change direction and look westwards, out over its new lands in the Far West.

Scarcely had the United States come into possession of Louisiana, and before she had fairly taken stock of her new acquisition, her citizens had begun to penetrate its remote interior, impatient to learn what it had in store for them.

But what were the United States and its citizens going to do with these new millions of acres of land?

The single attraction that it offered in a commercial way was its wealth of furs, the gathering of which became, and for a long time remained, the only business of importance in this entire region.

Hiram Martin Chittenden’s seminal work The American Fur Trade of the Far West is a fascinating history of the Far West.

Chittenden provides brilliant biographies of many of the most important figures in the history of the fur trade, from the explorers, Lewis and Clark, to trappers like Hugh Glass and Joseph Meek, to pioneers like Frances Garces and Jim Beckwourth, as well as missionaries like Father P. J. De Smet.

The book leaves no stone unturned as it provides a full examination of the events that occurred through the history of the fur trade and the figures who shaped the early history of the Far West.

What if the evil professor you fantasized about murdering actually wound up… dead?

Twenty-one-year-old Jessica James isn’t your average Northwestern University Philosophy PhD candidate. Raised on a Montana ranch by a charming but alcoholic mother, she’s as scrappy as she is smart, blonde-and-blue-eyed, and she still wears her cowboy boots. “You can take the girl out of the country”… as they say.

Currently, Jessica’s living in the stuffy attic of the Victorian mansion the university bought and transformed into the philosophy department, unbeknownst to everyone but the secretary and janitor. It’s not the best Chicago has to offer, but it’s no sweat compared to the dingy trailer park of her upbringing. And despite her less-than-glamorous digs, she works hard—no thanks to her arrogant thesis advisor Professor Baldrick Wolfgang “The Wolf” Schmutzig, “Preeminent Philosopher” and World-Class Dickhead, who seems to be going out of his way to prevent Jessica from completing her degree. “It takes more than intelligence to get a PhD, Miss James,” he’s fond of saying.

Turns out it also takes more than intelligence to stay alive, because Jessica and her criminology-student pal Jack find the smug professor murdered in the bathtub of his office while stealing a few late-night puffs from a joint.

Truth be told, neither Jesse nor Jack are particularly sad to see The Wolf go. But they aren’t the only ones who know about the professor’s grisly demise. Dmitry Durchenko is a low-profile Northwestern janitor who narrowly escaped the clutches of the Russian mob twenty years ago with two of his mafia boss father’s most prized possessions—antique Russian paintings valued at several million dollars apiece. Now the mob’s back to claim them. And they know Dmitry’s hidden at least one painting with the professor.

Suddenly, Dmitry’s life—and the lives of his family—are at stake. Plus, Jessica’s left plenty of evidence at Professor Schmutzig’s office, including her rejected thesis with a scathing, post-dated review from her smarmy advisor. And Jessica has a feeling the murder and her manuscript are somehow connected.

“The storyline and characters were captivating, and the world was a new take on dystopian settings. The twists in the plot kept me guessing, and the resolution was untidy enough that it begs for a sequel.” -Jean R.

“We are a world divided, with skeletons filling the cracks.”

Evelyn Moore hasn’t seen her children since the day they were born. No one in Felicity has.

From the moment a child is brought into the world they are placed into the arms of a patrol, and sent to live on the other side of the bridge. This is the way it has been for as long as anyone can remember. They say it began with a war so ravenous it split the land in two, creating what is now known as The Chasm – a giant crack in the earth that serves as the divider between Evelyn’s world, and her children’s.

Eighteen years later, and her daughter, Char, is finally ready to cross back into Felicity. She will leave the ruined city of Calloway, and her brother, Alexander, behind. Once she does, it won’t take long for the world around them to begin to unravel. Everything they thought they knew about their cities would turn out to be a lie. Unfortunately for them, some things are better left forgotten.

But his plan won’t be easy, not when his makeshift troops begin to pry into his painful past. Sharing the truth with them could cost him their trust, but he’ll never earn their command by keeping what haunts him a secret.

Stephanie Caldwell made the classic mistake… she fell in love with her boss.

The fact that Bran is blind makes no difference to Steph—she thinks he’s the most handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on. If only she didn’t have to see him every day, she could force herself to give up her pipe dreams. But she can’t quit–she needs this job to pay for her daughter’s medical treatment. To make things worse, he just got engaged!

Billionaire Branson Knight is pragmatic about his love life. He knows women don’t see him as a man, but as a blind person, worthy of pity. His only value lies in his wealth. So his engagement is merely a means to an end. But the last thing he wants to end is his relationship with Stephanie–he’s become dangerously dependent on his efficient personal assistant.

When Bran’s friends drag him off to Las Vegas, he convinces Steph to go along, to prevent him from panicking in the noisy, crowded environment. His fiancée, however, sees the trip as the perfect opportunity to coerce Bran into a quickie wedding. Steph and his friends are determined to prevent the disastrous union. But everyone has a secret…

Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O’Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she’s avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan’s grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan’s rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

Award-Winning Author

You are the high spirited 19-year-old daughter of a penniless widow, born and brought up on an isolated, windswept South Atlantic island, a girl with virtually no prospects, when out of the blue the most famous man on earth falls into your lap.

Still smarting from his defeat at Waterloo, still the hero of Liberals everywhere, Napoleon has been exiled to tiny Saint Helena because it is the remotest and most easily defended island in the British Empire. But far from being broken by defeat, Napoleon’s fertile imagination seethes with escape schemes. He meets you on his first evening on the island and instantly knows he has found what he is looking for: someone to set him free.

Nicknaming you “Rosebud” he sends you to Europe with a secret message for Lord Byron, an ardent supporter. You escape the notorious poet’s clutches just in time to get involved in a madcap scheme to rescue Napoleon by submarine, a new-fangled American invention. Then you return home to give him his final victory.

This clandestine affair between an imprisoned emperor and the island girl who tries to set him free has a very personal backstory, writes the author. When he was a child back home in South Africa his grandfather, who emigrated from Saint Helena in the late 1880’s, often spoke about his family’s acquaintance with the great man. A big print of Napoleon hung on his living room wall. “Remember that we have been touched by greatness,” were his enigmatic last words.

When he researched this claim many years later and discovered the Rosebud legend he realized why his grandfather, a Victorian gentleman, hadn’t gone into detail. Charlotte Knipe, said to be the most beautiful girl on Saint Helena at the time, is on record as having been a frequent guest of the emperor and rumored to have been his lover. Rosebud is the author’s great-great-grandaunt. The “touch of greatness” was Napoleon’s.
