One More Knight

Yes, more time travel! Coming October 2021

Preorder links should be up in April. I’ll send out an update as soon as they’re live. I can’t wait for you all to meet Lily and Tristan.

Lily James had scrimped and saved, working two jobs so she’d have enough money saved for her dream trip. An entire summer in England. Then she’d come home and go to college. Study computers or finance, whatever her parents wanted.

Her best friend, Amy, was going with her. Her cousin had rented an entire castle for two weeks and had invited them. It was the final two weeks of the trip, a perfect way to end the summer.

Amy’s cousin was throwing a farewell costume party on their last night. They’d scoured every shop in every town they’d visited all over the country until they found the perfect dresses. But not all evenings end with a prince and a glass slipper.

When Lily loses her way in the immense twisty castle, she finds herself in a different time. Medieval England. Not only has she somehow fallen through time, but she’s landed in the middle of a siege. Medieval England is nothing like she thought it would be. Lily just wants to go home. Back to hot showers, pizza, and her beloved garden. She wants her normal, boring, ordinary life back, but it seems fate has other plans.

Tristan De Savage is haunted by his past deeds. He’s under siege, the keep is falling around his ears, and he has no time for damsels in distress, no matter how enchanting.

Fall through time and fall in love with Lily and Tristan.

A few of my favorite things

Have you finished your holiday shopping? If you haven’t, I have a few suggestions for a few of my favorite things.

A comfy lap desk

A timer to keep you focused

If you prefer an app, the Be Focused Pro app (apple) is excellent. It’s based on the Pomodoro concept. I use it when I’m drafting my books. I also use it to clean or do other tasks as well. You can also use the timer on your phone or a kitchen timer, whatever works. Give it a try and boost your productivity.

Pretty pens

If you’re a mac user, these cases are beautiful. I have the pink glitter and lilac faux alligator.

My favorite cart. I use one for my planners, one for sewing supplies, and one for cleaning supplies. Target, Michaels, and other retailers have similar carts.

And of course my ebook boxed sets make great gifts.


Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving! Are you traveling or staying put this year?
I’m going to see family and looking forward to seeing my nieces.
Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving recipe? Mine is cranberry relish. It’s really easy to make and if there are any leftovers (usually there aren’t) it’s great by itself or on yogurt the next day.

Only one more week!

Only one more week until you meet Violet and Duncan. Here’s a snippet to tide you over until then:

As he was deciding between smelling like summer or leather, Duncan jumped and let out a yelp.

Rubbing his backside, he turned, looking for what beast had stung him.

’Twas a woman. She leered at him. “Hello handsome.”

“Mistress.” He inclined his head, desperately looking around for Violet.

The woman moved closer, a predator scenting prey.

“I haven’t seen you around.” She had lips as red as blood and skin dark as old leather. Her assets were on display and if Duncan hadn’t already been told this was how some women dressed, he would have thought her a prostitute.

“Aye. I needs go.”

“Oooh, you’re from Scotland.” She pouted at him. “Too bad you don’t have a kilt on, I’d love to find out what’s underneath.”

She ran her fingers up his arm, the bright red nails leaving faint marks on his skin. The scent she wore went up his nose and he sneezed three times.

The woman pressed herself against him. “Why don’t we get out of here?”


As Violet came around the corner, Duncan wanted to hide behind her like a small lad.

She glared at the woman. “Back off. My friend isn’t interested.”

The woman tossed her hair and sniffed. “Whatever. Though why he’d want you when he could have all this is beyond me.”

She flounced off, leaving Duncan with his mouth wide open. When he dared a glance at Violet, she had her arms crossed over her chest, muttering under her breath.

“Is she gone?” Duncan let out a breath. “Was that one of the ‘mean girls’ you told me about?”

She nodded. “That woman would eat you for breakfast.”

He shuddered.

“Come. Let us leave before she comes back.” He leaned down and whispered in Violet’s ear. “She pinched my arse.”

Violet clapped a hand over her mouth, shoulders shaking.

“‘Tisn’t funny.”

A laugh escaped as she wiped her eyes. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t laugh but the look on your face when I came around the corner.” She doubled over laughing.

“I think you were more afraid of her than the alligator.”

“I was not afeared.” Duncan stiffened. Then he grinned. “Aye, you’re right. She terrified me. Ye should have heard the scandalous things she whispered in my ear.”

2 more weeks!

2 weeks until you meet Violet and Duncan! Here’s a little snippet until then:
When he emerged from the bathing chamber, Duncan strode across the room.
“Shall we go or are ye going to laze about all day?”
Violet gaped at him. Then stood and reached out, touching his face, running her fingers up and down his skin. “Wow. You clean up well. I swear you look like they sculpted you from marble.”
He smirked. “You find me most pleasing.”
“I didn’t mean to say that last part out loud.” She turned a fetching shade of pink. Then she stuck her nose in the air. “It was an observation, like admiring a beautiful flower. Some people find that look attractive.”
“Ye think I am as pleasing as a flower.” His mouth twitched, but he knew better than to laugh out loud.
Violet held up the keys. “Let’s go.”
He followed her out of the house. “Aye, ye find my form and visage most pleasing, you may tell me ’tis so.”
“If you don’t stop talking, I won’t let you taste pizza.”
For a moment, Duncan was so distracted by her long legs in the scandalous shorts that he almost missed what she said. “Wait. What is ‘pizza’?”
The woman smirked at him. “Be quiet and you’ll find out.” She opened the door to the horseless carriage.
’Twas an odd shape, almost like an egg on its side. Duncan paled. “Nay, I wish to walk.”
“Don’t be a baby. All men love cars. Get in.”

Book 1 Darkest Knight

A dark and stormy knight…No really. It was storming…and rather dark in the Tower. 
An unexpected trip to London was supposed to be the perfect distraction from Anna’s stress-filled life. Minding her own business, drooling over so many jewels, Anna Waters winds up hopelessly lost and finds herself locked in the infamous tower.

Who knew an antique locket would lead her to a knight with a heart buried underneath thirty feet of stone? 
Searching for a way out, she stumbles over an antique locket with half the picture missing. Lightning strikes and when Anna wakes…she’s still in the Tower of London…700 years in the past.

She crossed an ocean of time for him. Can she save them both before it’s too late? 
John Thornton almost lost his head and saw his family ruined all because of a woman. Presumed dead, he became the infamous bandit of the wood. Captured and awaiting execution in the Tower of London, a strange woman appears out of the darkness. As they flee across England, John finds himself chipping away at the stone surrounding his heart. And longing for a life with his mysterious rescuer. No matter the cost.

Book 2 Forever Knight

A tiny scrap of fabric sent her hurtling through time… 
Elizabeth Smith was good at taking charge. Fixing what she believed was wrong with the world. And then she met a lazy knight with no desire to better himself.

A wager lost… 
Before the rakes of the regency period, there was Robert Thornton, Lord Highworth. Content to spend his days drinking, wenching, and hunting, Robert cared not what happened in the world around him. Let his brothers see to war and fighting. Perhaps if he drank enough he could forget the faces of the dead.

Sparks ensue… 
When Robert offers the strange lass up as the wager, Elizabeth vows to hate him forever. Wanting nothing to do with the lass with beguiling eyes, Robert doesn’t know whether to kill her or kiss her…

Book 3 First Knight

Tumble through time… 

A dig on the border of Scotland sends a free-spirited damsel tumbling through time to medieval England. 

Jennifer Wilson was happy spending the summer on a dig and putting off finding a job. When the earth swallows her during a terrible storm, she finds herself looking at a bustling Somerforth Castle not the ruins she’d been painting. Medieval England is full of interesting sights…and knights. Perhaps she could stay a week or two, it would be the adventure of a lifetime.

Pre-occupied with war, Edward Thornton has met strange lasses before. He suspects from whence she comes. But a dangerous threat across the border threatens to tear them apart.
