I write romantic suspense on the light side.
Gambling On The Goddess
She’s Pallas, named for Pallas Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and War and the Queen of Spades. She’s a financial genius and poker player extraordinaire, in Lake Tahoe to solve a family mystery and win the money she needs to launch her career.
She meets Danny Tarantino, a casino owner whose club is his whole life, but someone’s out to destroy it, a situation that threatens Pallas’ plans as much as her attraction to Danny threatens her peace of mind. He has enough to handle without worrying about the red-headed beauty he can’t seem to get out of his thoughts, especially when she’s determined to get involved.
Together, they find out who’s behind the attacks on Danny’s club and a twenty-year-old murder, but can they stay alive long enough to answer the question: Can a goddess and a gambler live happily ever after?
Delta On My Mind
Blue’s come home. He’s mastered the financial world and now hopes to launch a second career and build a family, the whole messy dream. Problem is; somebody doesn’t want him back.
Delta’s marriage was a huge mistake. Now on the mend and fiercely independent, she’s fulfilling her dream of a green architecture firm. That dream is threatened when her ex sues her, invoking a clause in their pre-nup that gives him half her business.
When the death of a loved one brings Delta and Blue together again, a seventy-year-old secret and a land grant dating to the Civil War throw their lives into chaos and bring newly discovered passions to the surface.
