As a massive Jane Austen fan (I've watched three versions of Pride and Prejudice), I've always wanted to create a contemporary regency-style romance.
Elizabeth MacMillan’s husband needed space, and now he’s gone for good leaving her with their ten-year-old son and no idea how they will survive. Max Marino’s life has been empty for years, and then he meets Elizabeth. The attraction is instantaneous and passionate, but Max has a dark secret that will shake Elizabeth’s faith in second chances. Only time will tell if their love can weather the storm ahead, or be destroyed before the seasons change.
Christmas is coming, and the goose is not the only thing feeling a little heavier than it used to be.
Alongside the countdown to the festivities, and one of the busiest times of the year, Alice is now well into her second pregnancy, and ticking off the days until she can finally stop work for a little while, and prepare to welcome her baby into the world.
While two-year-old Ben is dreaming of a white Christmas, Alice is floored by the news from her midwife that she is not as well as she might be. Her nerves are set further on edge by a trip to a hidden cove with Lizzie, where she learns the story of a young woman whose baby was lost at sea, and whose ghost is now said to haunt the sands. With some unsettling dreams, and strange goings-on at home and at work, Alice begins to fear for her health and her sanity. Is she being targeted by some unseen force, or might she actually be losing her mind?

“Just a fling,” she said…
Tess Peyton wanted to do something fun and reckless and wholly out of character. A steamy weekend with a Scotsman seems like a plan.

This is why one should always stick to the plan.
“Bachelor for life,” he said…
But that was before all of Mitch Campbell’s friends, cousins, and even his little sister started pairing off like someone was building an ark. No wonder he fell, and fell hard, for his “no attachments, no last names” European fling. And just when he’s ready to tell the woman of his dreams that he wants to change that arrangement, she disappears, leaving him with no means of tracking her down, and a big ol’ hole in his heart.
And then Fate stepped in…
Because, guess what? The guy Tess ran out on in Edinburgh shows up at family dinner. He’s her dad’s new wife’s brother’s son. What does that make them? It makes them “on again,” according to Mitch and the explosive chemistry between them. Tess feels it too, along with a side of awkward, continued uncertainty, and some kind of stomach virus that seems to bother her most in the mornings…

Then tragedy comes snapping at their heels…
The child goes missing. She’s alone in the depths of winter and the three are intent on blaming each other. After all that’s occurred, old hurts run deep and trust is not on the agenda.

DAISY FIELDS is a contemporary romance novella that slides like ice cream down your throat! I started it because I wanted to try writing from the perspective of an HSP like me. David Nighthart is a soft-spoken, SLR-yielding hero whose perceptiveness toward those around him is a key ingredient in the romance that unfolds.

With two relationships in shambles, she moves out of her parents’ home and immerses herself in work. Then she meets the sexy neighbor next door who is willing to help her heal her heart. But will she let him?
