DeceptionPeople ask me all the time, why do you write what you write? The easy answer is, I write the story in my head. And that’s true. I do write the story in my head. Some days that’s a contemporary romance with paranormal elements and sometimes it’s an historical romance. These days it’s Historical Paranormal Romance. The question and the genre got me thinking about, why. I’ve always loved traditional romance and I completely adore writing traditional historical without any monsters. Books by Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught are what got me excited about reading.

Here’s what I’ve learned. I do it for the heroines. I love a strong heroine who can kick some butt and makes no apologies. I could only write contemporary and those kind of women would fit in, no problem. I enjoy writing those books too. How do I get that kind of action from a heroine in Regency England though? That’s the challenge and I love a challenge. My solution is to add the element of paranormal.

AscensionThe Demon Hunter series is jam packed with men and women who break the traditional roles in order to cross the line between society and demon hunter. Within The Company, they can be themselves, but out and about there are customs that must be held to. Not all the heroes and heroines are from the upper crust of society. Not all the villains are demons. But each book is the story of good vs. evil and how love trumps everything else.

Can love find a way to survive in a world where demons take to our city streets and kill at random for their own nefarious purpose? I’d like to think so.

DECEPTION is book two of The Demon Hunter series, but can be read on its own. While characters from Ascension make appearances, you will know who and what they are. I promise. Enjoy DECEPTION and if you’re still curious, pick up ASCENSION afterward. You won’t be disappointed.


When Demons threaten Regency London, only a Lady can stop them.

Lillian Dellacourt is beautiful, refined and absolutely lethal. She’s also the most feared and merciless demon hunter in The Company. She’s come a long way from the penniless seamstress’s daughter sold to the highest bidder, and it wasn’t by trusting a man, let alone an exiled Marquis with more on his mind than slaying the hellspawn . . .

For Dorian Lambert, Marquis de Montalembert, being sent to keep track of Lillian is no mean task. He’s wanted the fiery vixen since he first heard of her five years ago. But wooing the lady while fighting the demon uprising is no easy feat, especially when the lady’s tongue is as sharp as the Japanese sai blades she favors for eviscerating the spawn of hell.

These two will have to learn to trust each other fast, because the demon master is back, and he’s planning to turn Edinburgh into a living hell…

When I first started writing The Do-Over, I knew I had to set it in my hometown in Maine. Why? Dorothy said it best when she repeated the mantra: There’s no place like home. Because there truly isn’t. I was very fortunate to grow up in a small, sleepy little fishing town where everybody knows… Read More
