I write books that I love to read. They're multi-layered stories with family drama, plenty of action, and lots of romance and suspense. My characters are women determined to take charge of their lives. Through their trials and struggles, one thing becomes clear. Love and family have a way of making a person stronger and better.
Best wishes to all of you. Thanks for your support and interest.
When it's spy vs. spy, love vs. loyalty, someone is going to get hurt.
Lily Fitzhugh is desperate to get to America when her father is imprisoned as a traitor against the Crown. To gain passage, she accepts a dangerous job: To sneak aboard a ship headed to New York and spy on suspected colonial patriot Griffin Faraday.
Griffin Faraday doesn't have time for a beautiful, tempting stowaway--especially one he can't trust. He has a secret shipment of guns to deliver to General Washington and the Continental Army. Nothing can get in the way. But when the ship's captain orders Lily sent away with pirates, a sure death sentence, Griffin must propose something else entirely: Marriage, the absolute last thing he wants.
Now Lily and Griffin are trapped in the close confines of his cabin, locked in a dangerous cloak and dagger game, two spies hiding the truth while they try not to fall in love. Thrust into a world where deception and silence are the rule and political loyalties can mean prison or death, Lily and Griffin must face their greatest challenge--learning to trust each other.
