Ashes of a Madman: (Reader's Favorite Five Star Seal) Trudging through the depths of the Dark Continent, Rebecca, with the best intentions, has just made a terrible mistake. Her new husband, Geoff Ramsay, is a titled anthropologist, a bold adventurer who persuades her to join him and his team into the Congo, ostensibly to map the prospective railway. The team's true fixation was with a tribe on the far side of Lake Victoria. Determined to win back her husband's fickle attention, she agreed, only to discover what truly separated them: for Rebecca to indulge his darkest fantasy. Could she convince him to break his addiction to the red drug and abandon his fascination with death rituals before it was too late for her? Could she return alone, thousands of miles from his nightmare and attempt to shake herself from the consequences of this mistake? How damaged must she become to discover who manipulated the conspiracy surrounding the death of those who came before her and protect herself and those she loves from revenge? Rebecca unravels the mystery behind the death of her husband's colleague, only to discover Geoff's frightening intentions toward her so far from civilization.  Not only must she solve a murder while averting her own, but then she must make her way back to England and confront what she has become to survive. But the conspirators were not done with her yet... Amazon

Chattan Bride:  (Reader's Favorite Five Star Seal) As the daughter of a strong English baron, Isabel is compelled by peace negotiations to become the child-bride of the enemy, the powerful and fierce Scottish Larid of the Chattan clan, Alysandir. Her youth and his distaste for a marriage alliance with his enemy render her strenuous efforts to win his approval almost futile. Even though she failed him in a complex situation, why would he allow his former fiance to get away with an attempt to kill her? When her dying father calls her home to England, she is forced to be braver than her years as her exiled, murderous half-brother, Gilbert, attempts to wrest control of Bamborough Castle from her father, who was determined to never allow Gilbert the inheritance. Could a wizened Alysandir soften her battle-hardened heart, protect her from her treacherous half-brother and brother-in-law and win Isabel back?  Growing up amid the border wars taught Isabel to be strong, cautious and adaptable. Fighting in those wars made Alysandir inflexible, distrustful, but patient and brave. Could he secure his lands and keep his new bride safe from those who wished to harm her, or even protect her from herself? After breaking her, could he gather her back to himself and teach her to trust him before her half-brother and brother-in-law kill her over a piece of borderland? Nook by Barnes & Noble   Amazon

Blind Man's Bluff: Black Butterfly (First in series): (Reader's Favorite Five Star Seal) As a spy for the English in the throes of the Napoleonic Wars, Marrok, the Marquis de Condorcet, has a myriad of secrets. When he discovered a woman at the brink of death on his lands, he took a risk in both saving and trusting her, only to discover that she held more secrets than he did. Would risking their lives for each other help them identify her attempted murderer or reveal how dangerous their connection is?  Discarded in a ravine and left for dead, Felicite is at the mercy of a dangerous and duplicitous man. He could help her solve who was behind the brutal attack on her life, but not before her involvement with him nearly gets them both killed. The more she learns about her attackers reveals the caverns of intrigue that both pull her closer to Marrok and thrust her into the realization that she is far more suspicious and dangerous than her protector.
