“…an amazing sense of humor and wit…Easily one of the most entertaining reads in a long time.”
— Fresh Fiction on Texas Hold Him
Thanks for dropping by! I’m an author of historical romance novels. My first book, TEXAS HOLD HIM, released in April of 2009.
I love historical romances, and my favorites are definitely the ones that add humor to the mix. When I write a book, I always think about what types of personalities will give the best potential for a passionate romance and a giggle or two (or three or four).

Emma Murdock must hire a man to take her virginity in order to save her family from losing their home. She needs to marry a wealthy man and, luckily, she bears an uncanny resemblance to the missing countess who owns their home. But as a servant, she does not have access to genteel society, so she assumes the countess’s identity in order to mingle with the wealthiest in London and attain a match. Unfortunately, the countess was a widow and, unlike Emma, widows aren’t virgins.
Micajah Melbourne is shocked when a beautiful woman mistakes him for a dockworker and offers him a guinea to take her virginity. He doesn’t believe the strange story she’s concocted as an explanation, but he’s concerned if he doesn’t accept her offer, she’ll hire some dangerous lowlife to do the deed. He agrees to help while he tries to learn the truth behind the lies. But the truth he thinks he’s uncovered changes his growing feelings of passion to a desire for revenge.

Robert Melbourne is shocked to learn his brother has been kidnapped and the ransom is a rare Egyptian statue once in his possession. Unfortunately, the statue has disappeared, and he only has a few weeks to find it. His task is difficult enough without Miss Winston’s interference. He’d spent much of his childhood avoiding “Perilous Penelope,” but when she manages to follow him despite his wishes, he discovers that the irritating child he once knew has become an intriguing woman he can’t forget.
