Verity and the Villain is now live! And the sequel, Gracey and the Gambler is up for pre-sale (it will be available in August). If you, so kindly, offered to read and review you can post your review on Amazon now here:

A girl disguised as a boy.
A villain with a brothel to fill.
Serving murder, mayhem and pies, Verity and the Villain is a romantic adventure set in 1889—on the eve of the Great Seattle Fire, when more than a city is set on fire. 

After a night of terror, Verity Faye flees New York. Disguised as a boy, she sets sail for a new life in Seattle, but her nightmare, Mr. Steele, follows close behind. Armed with only her chocolates, laced tarts, and wits, Verity sets out to destroy Mr. Steele and his Lucky Island brothel.

Trent Michaels is searching for his missing cousin. He can't afford complications - or romance - yet, at every turn he finds Verity Faye. The night before the Great Seattle Fire of 1889, flames spark between Verity and Trent leaving the life they know and the city they love in ashes.

Their story reaches forward through time to Bette Michaels, a genealogist, struggling with grief after the sudden death of her husband. Although generations apart, as Bette unravels Verity's story, she learns that a life can be rebuilt - even after everything is lost.

Reeling with grief and self-doubts, Addison never suspects her life is about to change when a stranger gifts her a manuscript and asks her to rewrite the ending.

In an earlier century...

When Gracey refused to bend to the dictates of New York’s high society, her mortified parents shipped her off to the Wilds of Washington territory. But Gracey, itching for adventure has no intention to stay in the dreary soggy backwater known as Seattle. When the opportunity comes to join a traveling theater troupe, Gracey sets out to create the life she deserves. And finds much more adventure than even she desired or dreamed of.

As Addison reads of Gracey's rebellion, she confronts the dark corners in her own life and faces her faulty perceptions about herself and those she loves. Addison realizes she must not only rewrite Gracey’s story, but also her own.

Portions of Gracey and the Gambler were formally known as Rewriting Rita.

How can you know where you're going if you can't remember where you've been?

Charlie Monson has spent her entire life pining over Kirk Palmer. In fact, she chose to be a nurse just so she could work beside him at Laguna Beach's Mission Hospital. 

Zach Walden has lost seven years of his life. He can't remember leaving his football career or creating the Wonder Weight Loss app that has supposedly made him a billionaire. And worse, he can't remember his fiancee, the beautiful Eva Caron. Retrograde amnesia, it's just one of the things Zach has to learn to deal with. But all he wants to study is the charming nurse who saved him, Charlie Monson.

Unfortunately, Zach has a life that includes a cast of friends and foes demanding his attention and he not only has to relearn their names—he also has to come to terms with who he thought he was and who he’s become. Meanwhile, Charlie thinks she’s in love with Dr. Kirk Palmer, but the more time she spends with Zach, the more she learns that maybe she’s the one who needs to wake up and recognize what real love looks like.

Hilarious and yet thought-provoking, The Oblivious Billionaire will charm romantic comedy fans. The Oblivious Billionaire is the second book in the Misbehaving Billionaire series, but both novels can be read independently.

He can throw a precision pass, but he's dead in the water in matters of the heart...

Maine Fitzgerald has struck out with more women than he'd like to admit—and he doesn't even play baseball. Armed with a plan to get out of his comfort zone onboard a singles cruise, he joins the very first event: a mix and mingle.

Too bad he's almost completely deaf in one ear and doesn't hear the beautiful blonde tell him her name.

Orchid Stone doesn't want to be on the singles cruise. She has an eight-year-old daughter to tend to, and a job to do, and a husband to mourn. But her sisters think eight years is long enough to mourn, and she promises them she'll try on the cruise.

She can't help it if the meathead quarterback isn't interested.

When a tsunami strikes their ship, she's forced overboard with Maine and a security guard, and they make their way to a deserted island. Desperate to get back to her daughter, Orchid will do anything to survive.

She climbs rock walls, escapes from wild boars, and plucks chickens. She knows she's lucky to be washed up on an old World War II outpost, complete with an overgrown garden and a herd of wild chickens, but she needs to get home.

Maine does too—but he's scared of the man he'll have to be once he leaves the island. He's sure Orchid won't want to be with him once he has to go back to the public persona of Maine Fitzgerald. Can Orchid and Maine make things work between them when they're so different? Or will their time stranded together be all they get?

Ally would sacrifice anything for her family. Luca is so close to achieving his dream. But when it's either her dad or his aspirations will they choose their own paths or each other?

Her father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and all of his care and medical bills have fallen to her mom. Knowing she can't abandon her family in their time of need, Ally is returning to her island home of Maui, her dashed plans all but forgotten. 

Luca Heathcliff knows his reputation isn't stellar. Ever since he was betrayed by his twin and had his heart broken by his girlfriend, he's dated no one woman for more than a few dates and spent all of his free time on the waves. But it's time to grow up. Ready to have his twin take him seriously, Luca decides it's time to change part of his reputation - he'll never fall in love again - but he's presented an opportunity to possibly become a professional surfer.

But when a picture of Luca looking inept in the surf goes viral his entire dream could be lost. And not only that, his mother has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's and Luca isn't sure what to do.
