Lake of Destiny-A Celtic Legends Novel

magical novel about destiny, family, food, intrigue, healing, men in kilts, and the sometimes twisted path to love from the award-winning author of Compulsion. "Delightful, charming, and heartwarming." --NYT bestselling author Wendy Higgins

Helping her aunt organize a festival in a picturesque village nestled among the Highland braes of Scotland seems like the perfect escape from Anna Cameron's broken engagement and the mistake that ended her legal career. To succeed in helping the struggling community, though, she'll need to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, meandering dogs, and the stubborn land-owner who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of "Sighting."

For centuries, the glen has been known to locals as a "thin" place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning and reflects the face of a person's one true love in the tranquil waters of the loch. The tradition could draw much-needed tourists by the busload, but that's exactly what Connal MacGregor doesn't want when he's desperate to keep his daughter out of the public eye.

Struggling to mediate between Connal and the needs of the village, Anna finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his disfigured daughter, the villagers, and the magical glen. But opening the "Sighting" to strangers reveals generations of scars within the community and within Connal and Anna themselves. ...

The Grand Opening is set for the Spirits of Texas Inn, and Hannah Duncan has one goal – Go Big, or Go Home

After her uncle gifts her the tiny hamlet of Hannah, Texas, the reluctant owner accepts the challenge of a new career. The town (a loose definition, at best) has one claim to fame—the historic stagecoach stop, otherwise known as the Spirits of Texas Inn

To kick off the auspicious event, Hannah brings a Wild West Show to town for opening weekend. The event will bring in extra cash for the inn, provide fun activities for the guests, and create good will with the community. It’s a lot to tackle during the grand opening, but Hannah is taking a play from her uncle’s rule book. JoeJoe always says you never make your mark by playing it safe.

A Heart Life

Leena Coughlin is simply eye-candy to her husband Steven’s sky-rocketing career. Steven may be a brilliant cardiac surgeon, but the self-absorbed man is more focused on other people’s hearts—and his own pleasure—than on the emotional heart of his family.

To fend off the growing loneliness of her marriage, Leena strikes up a relationship with a stranger, Michael Casspi, through a letters-to-prisoners program. Michael was also once a cardiac surgeon. He claimed that assisting his dying wife with suicide was an act of mercy. The state called it murder. Can a man imprisoned behind bars fill Leena’s emotional void? Focused on their own strained relationship, neither Steven nor Leena has noticed the deteriorating mental health of their college-aged daughter, Joy. Two men. One woman. And a fragile girl teetering on the knife-edge of depression. But when Michael is unexpectedly released from prison, the precarious balance of all their lives will be dramatically altered forever.

magical novel about destiny, family, food, intrigue, healing, men in kilts, and the sometimes twisted path to love from the award-winning author of Compulsion. "Delightful, charming, and heartwarming." --NYT bestselling author Wendy Higgins

Helping her aunt organize a festival in a picturesque village nestled among the Highland braes of Scotland seems like the perfect escape from Anna Cameron's broken engagement and the mistake that ended her legal career. To succeed in helping the struggling community, though, she'll need to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, meandering dogs, and the stubborn land-owner who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of "Sighting."

For centuries, the glen has been known to locals as a "thin" place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning and reflects the face of a person's one true love in the tranquil waters of the loch. The tradition could draw much-needed tourists by the busload, but that's exactly what Connal MacGregor doesn't want when he's desperate to keep his daughter out of the public eye.

Struggling to mediate between Connal and the needs of the village, Anna finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his disfigured daughter, the villagers, and the magical glen. But opening the "Sighting" to strangers reveals generations of scars within the community and within Connal and Anna themselves. ...

A woman with white hair. An embossed envelope from the palace. Lucy Forrester, for services to literature, you are nominated for a New Year’s Honour. Her hands shake. But it’s not excitement.

Lucy knows who she is. Rebel, activist, word-wielder, thorn in the side of the establishment. Not a national bloody treasure.
