Stealing The Future

Behind the Berlin Wall a dissident is on the trail of a killer

1993. After forty years of communist rule it’s time for change in the GDR.

Direct democracy, citizen’s movements and de-centralization are part of the new political landscape.

But when a politician’s crushed body is found a constitutional crisis erupts.

Former dissident, Martin Grobe, is caught up in an investigation that points towards the KGB, the Stasi and the West Germans—but is it really the start of a putsch against the new GDR, or just a murder?

Buried Desire: Soulbonded Book 1

The vengeful ghost of a murdered girl stalks the innocent. A forbidden passion ignites in the dark. Secrets of the past that doom the present rise with the dead at Eden Lake.

For Nikolai and Alexei, their summer job was a break from real life, a last deep breath of freedom before returning to their family and the arranged marriages waiting for them. But the peace of the summer is shattered when the ghost of a brutally murdered girl begins to kill.

As the boys struggle to put the spirit to rest before it kills again, long-suppressed desire flares, despite the deep taboos of their upbringing. Gifted with the sight, Alexei has lived his life knowing something dark hunts for Nikolai, and their love holds the key to saving him or damning him forever. The choice may not be theirs to make.

The Blow-In

Romance can lurk where you least expect it. Even in the depths of the Irish countryside.

Political reporter Finola McGee is not the romantic type. She leads with her chin, shoots from the hip and takes no prisoners. When living on the edge loses its appeal, she escapes Dublin to run the local newspaper in a small Tipperary town. An easy job, friendly neighbours, lovely countryside, and fresh air—what’s not to like?

But the rural bliss doesn’t last longer than a weekend. Finola soon finds herself mixed up in a hornet’s nest of conspiracies. And when Hollywood rides into town, a certain heartthrob adds a further twist to an already complicated romance…

Dead Before the Wedding: A Carly Keene Cozy Mystery

Life in a small town can be murder…

Meet Carly Keene. She’s a professional photographer, part-time bakery employee, and a small town girl who loves everything about her hometown, until she discovers that there’s a murderer on the loose.

Parker’s Mill has a killer in its midst. The sleepy little Georgia town is full of quirky characters, but one of them is a stone-cold killer. When Carly discovers the body of one of her photography clients in his bathtub, fully clothed and snuggled up to a space heater in the dead of summer, she knows something’s not right.

The dead guy had some secrets. One of which just happens to be a secret love child, and another is a redhead who smokes too much, which wouldn’t be a problem if he hadn’t been engaged to a brassy blonde with eighties hair and a heck of a mean temper. He also has a gorgeous twin brother who knocks Carly for six when she realizes that she might be falling for him.

Can Carly figure out who really killed Larry Gaston before the cops nab the wrong person? Or will she let his handsome twin wander off into the sunset with one of the dead guy’s former conquests?

Get cozy with the characters in this small town as Carly fights for justice as sweet as the chocolate cake at the Sweets & Eats bakery!
