My second novel, Promise Me, is set in Victorian England in 1866 and involves the great grandson of the main characters of my debut novel. It also reveals a little of what became of those characters through the memories of their daughter, Margaret, who is the unforgettable and cherished grandmother in this particular tale. When Nicolas questions his brother's unexpected death, he cannot help but suspect his brother's lovely fiancée is hiding more than her grief.
My third novel, Beyond theShadow of Canderlay Manor, has ties to both my previous novels and is set in 1811 Regency England. It recounts the story of Margaret’s older brother, Morgan, and his obsessive desire to regain possession of their father’s ancestral estate, abandoned now for many years. As he searches for a wealthy bride to restore Canderlay to its previous glory, his heart yearns for a woman who will love him beyond anything else.
(REVIEWS for THE MACGREGOR'S DAUGHTER)

"If you are looking for adventure, you have found it. Read and enjoy."
5 WINGS from MARGARET COLEMAN-CLASSIC ROMANCE REVIVAL
"The Macgregor's Daughter is all that you could wish for in a swashbuckling historical novel. Merely the strong attraction between Dreya and her Pirate would keep you turning the pages, but danger lurks round every misty corner of Dragon's Breath, and the story holds your interest until the very end...the supporting cast of crusty Scots are all excellently drawn characters, and the island setting is very well evoked. All the threads of the plot are neatly tied up at the end...The Macgregor's Daughter is an excellent read and I look forward to the next from this fine author."
4.5 BOOK FROM SNAPDRAGON-LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS
"Charm and intrigue exude from the cover, and The Macgregor’s Daughter does not fail to live up to all that the images suggest...has a lot of good points, from characters to pacing, includes delicious descriptions and maintains your interest level...The shining star here is the simply fantastic dialogue. It is always fast-paced and believable, sometimes heartfelt, sometimes full of innuendo, and always always revealing. A great story that I have to recommend."
