Meet Claire and Mark


My latest couple are on the way!

I’m celebrating today, because the ebook of Enduring Dreams is now available for preorder with release on September 22. (The print book will be available as soon as possible, hopefully before the release date.)


Loving her might be a blueprint for disaster.

Claire Kingsley once dared to assert herself into the male world of 1890s architecture. It cost her husband both his life and an heir. Now fear controls her choices and her dreams. When offered a chance to create another design, she fights against the pull, afraid of further disaster. But disturbing news ignites a fierce loyalty to her past love and a powerful attraction to a new one—an attraction she resists…for his sake.

Mark Gregory’s first architectural project in town comes with the proviso that he works with a female. He balks, even though Claire stirs his heart like no other woman. Yet, with a loan payment looming, risking his business on someone of unknown talent invites failure, a word he’s struck from his vocabulary. When bigotry and Claire’s fears threaten an important commission, will she summon the courage to help Mark succeed, or will she destroy another man’s dream?


This is the first of three novels in the Widow’s Might series. The prequel novella, Unwrapping Hope, released last October. It’s available to purchase on Amazon or read it free when you sign up for my newsletter.
