It Started at Waterloo

Does she love him enough to let him go?

After three straight days working beside surgeon Will Kennaway to treat the wounded of Waterloo, Amelia Hartwell collapses on the nearest bed to sleep. Surely she can be forgiven for not caring that the warm body sleeping next to hers is Will’s.

Amelia’s status-hungry mother, however, couldn’t be more pleased to have an excuse to get the painfully shy, socially awkward Amelia married off, albeit to a less-than-ultra-rich husband.

Will doesn’t keep his title a deep, dark secret. His little-known earldom simply affords him the financial freedom to focus solely on healing the sick. But now that he has a wife to think about—and to admire, thanks to her unstinting bravery at Waterloo—he reluctantly takes up the mantle of earl to do his duty.

Missing her meaningful work as a nurse, Amelia finds herself floundering in society’s glaring spotlight, wondering if Will regrets being forced to marry. Perhaps it might even be better to give him his freedom, even if doing so will break her heart…

This is the republication of a book that was with Samhain, originally released in 2015.

The Battle of Waterloo

The Shaws

The Shaws is a brand new series featuring some familiar characters. The children of the Marquess of Strenshall became so popular that they have been given their own series! They are wealthy, reckless and leaders of society in mid-eighteenth century Britain, but that doesn't mean they don't have to face some hard truths in their road to happiness.

Sinless - The Shaws, Book Two


Lord Darius Shaw has never been in love before. But when he renews his acquaintance with lawyer Andrew Graham in a raid on a molly house, where men meet men for forbidden pleasure, they discover mutual feelings as deep as they are dangerous. For while society will turn a blind eye to an aristocrat’s transgressions, Andrew has far more at stake. The son of city merchants, Andrew has a disastrous marriage in his past, and a young daughter to support. He could lose his livelihood, his reputation and even his life—and drag Darius down with him.

Darius and Andrew’s only choice is to deny the true nature of their relationship. But when an enemy Italian spy threatens their secret—and their futures—the two set out to catch him. And in the process they are forced to face their desires—and make a life-changing decision.

Future Plans

The Emperors of London ends with Wild Lavender, but the Emperors themselves live on!

There's a new series featuring characters you probably know already! It's called "The Shaws," and is about the rambunctious Shaw family, part of the Emperors. The series will follow their fortunes and their paths to love.

With the closing of Samhain, the series Richard and Rose and Even Gods Fall In Love are not currently available, but they will be back! Secrets and The Triple Countess have just gone back on sale.
