Howdy! Glad you stopped by.  

I'm a Christian novelist located in South Carolina, USA. My novels are exciting contemporary and historical romances set in Charleston and on the High Seas. 

Below is the cover for my latest romance novel, Marisol, released November 12 by Wild Heart Books. Click here on Amazon

HERE'S a tag for Marisol:

Escaping to the New World is her only option...Rescuing her will wrap the chains of the Spanish Inquisition around his neck.                     

Marisol, Spanish Rose

Book 1  Charleston Brides

Marisol Valentin flees Spain after murdering the nobleman who molested her. She ends up for sale on the indentured servants’ block at Charles Town harbor—dirty, angry, and with child. Her hopes are shattered, but she must find a refuge for herself and the child she carries. Can this new land offer her the grace, love, and security she craves? Or must she escape again to her only living relative in Cartagena?

Captain Ethan Becket, once a Charles Town minister, now sails the seas as a privateer, grieving his deceased wife. But when he takes captive a ship full of indentured servants, he’s intrigued by the woman whose manners seem much more refined than the average Spanish serving girl. Perfect to become the governess for his young son.

As their paths intertwine on a journey filled with danger, intrigue, and romance, only love and the grace of God can overcome the past and ignite a new beginning for Marisol and Ethan.

A wounded warrior . . . a woman searching for truth.  

Even with his eye patch, bitterness and distrust, former Marine Special Ops, now plantation owner, Luke Barrett captures Rachel's heart until the night she finds evidence he is following in the footsteps of his pirate ancestor, Captain Bloodstone, but in smuggling the white gold, cocaine, which cost her brother's life during his Charleston, South Carolina, coastal investigation.

Rachel York is escaping a bad relationship and seeking to uncover the truth regarding the death of her brother who worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). She doesn't believe he's really dead. She's found a job at a historic Charleston tea plantation but when she arrives, the man who hired her is dead and his nephew has no clue she was coming. Would God bring her this far to fail her now?

Luke Barrett is a widowed and wounded Marine Corps Special Forces operative who has returned home with an eye patch making him more like a grumpy pirate than the owner of a southern tea-plantation. Handsome but untrusting, he's suspicious of Rachel but allows her to stay on trial as a nanny to his young daughter whom he adores.

Rachel revels in the beauty and history of her temporary home and looks for ways to contact her brother's partner to uncover the truth. But strange things are happening on the plantation and she begins to wonder if the honorable and grumpy owner might not be involved in nefarious activities. In spite of that, she finds herself attracted to the brooding, temperamental owner of the plantation.

Luke is finding his own heart melted and lost faith rekindled by the feisty nanny, but suspect she has secrets of her own. When love is about to bloom a hurricane comes and craziness ensues. Is her brother really alive? Does Luke love her, or is he really a drug smuggler? With all the secrets kept, can love survive the turmoil?
