Disowned by her mother and suffering from unrequited love, a dismayed wallflower steps out of the shadows and into the path of a vindictive killer…

Through a chance introduction, Miss Daphne Clemens finds herself thrust into a dangerous situation, sequestered on a country estate with the one man she wants, but cannot have: Mr. Thomas Reid.

Thomas realizes someone in the household is working with Mr. Franklin Morris, feeding information to a killer intent on murdering every person in the chateau… including Daphne. All evidence points to a servant, but when the girl accused of the crime is found to be innocent, Thomas fears he may be too late to save Daphne's life.

Fans of Stephanie Laurens and Julie Garwood will savor this third installment of the Wiltshire Chronicles which reveals the inner workings of a broken heart, the deviousness of jealously, and the strength of true love.

'bohemia Chills' A Hot Halloween Romantic Comedy
Halloween has become a major (and majorly fun) holiday, and while you're surrounded by ghosts and goblins, it's fun to read romance that gets you in the mood — especially when that romance is a romantic comedy set at Halloween. "Bohemia Chills" is the seventh book in Lucy Lakestone's Bohemia Beach Series of steamy contemporary romances, but it can be read as a standalone. The novel's heroine, Kayla, inherits a purported haunted house from the father she never knew, and the only one who can help her fix it up is her annoying roommate, Landon. Only her roommate turns out to be annoyingly attractive as they strive to unlock the keys to the mansion's mysteries. The mention of "keys" is not a coincidence. "Bohemia Chills" is also a Common Elements Romance Project novel. Writers in a variety of romance subgenres are writing books linked by five common elements dictated by the project, including lost keys, a lightning storm, a stack of books, a character named Max, and a house that may or may not be haunted. And yes, this idea is as fun as it sounds! "Bohemia Chills" is available at Amazon, and the whole series is in Kindle Unlimited for a limited time.
Challenging Mountains (settlers Book 3)
"What I thought in maybe the first 20 pages was going to be a good read of young people and life turned out to be a really good read of all ages facing the challenges of life in a new land. People of all ages enduring the hardships of moving to a land the government said they could take for a pittance. Of course, it happened to be land inhabited by natives. Sound like the United States taking away and settling land that many thought belonged to Native Americans? It is somewhat the same idea but not your same old story."
