The Woodcarver’s Secret

At the turn of the last century, on the crowded streets of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Hannah dreams of becoming a woodcarver. It’s a time when women are prohibited from working in the Brooklyn workshops where magical carousel horses are being created by artists like herself; the difference is that they are all men. Even though she’s barred from carving in the light of day, she finds a way to carve at night in a secret workshop in Brooklyn. Unhappily married, she longs for the day when she can live her authentic life in the open.

From New York to Chicago to Hollywood, Hannah searches for both her own truth and her true love in a journey of self-determination and unrelenting courage!

It takes a special kind of hero to stand up against the odds…

Evie and Albert. Naomi and Judah. Four very different people who join a movement to birth a nation with one thing in common. None of them ever expected to fall in love…

From Paris to Prague, from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, The Wick and The Flame captures the heart and soul of a nation at its birth, seen through the eyes of those who put their lives and hearts on the line to insure its future!

Perfectly Polite

Julie Porter is an etiquette guru. She’s written the guidebook for proper manners and behavior in an ever-changing world and lives by the standards she sets. Until, that is, she literally bumps into billionaire CEO James Curran in a bar. Once she accidentally spills a shot of tequila on his shirt and feels that hard toned body underneath, everything she’s ever held true changes.

James is looking for a woman who will make his father finally relinquish control of their family media empire, but he can only do that once he’s found a suitable wife. Julie fits the bill. From the minute his eyes lock with hers, sparks fly. And once they tangle in the sheets, he knows that he can never let her go. Can he close the most important business deal of his career? Or will Julie’s long held secret past resurface only to tear them apart?

Perfectly Polite… some rules are made to be broken!

Fabulously Flirty

Caroline Montgomery thinks she has life all figured out, but just as she’s about to walk down the aisle of her elaborate wedding in NYC, she bails. Despite the snowstorm raging outside, she makes her way to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and boards the only ride out of town. Desperate, she ends up underdressed and alone in the freezing cold, so she accepts a strange man’s offer of a warm room for the night. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a hunky, good-looking guy who smells of vanilla and cinnamon…

Matt Russo is a divorced single dad who owns a successful bakery in town. When Caroline literally falls into his lap on the bus ride home to Marbleview, Vermont, he can’t help but be intrigued by her big city ways. What he doesn’t expect is to lose his head and his heart to her…

A big city woman. A small-town man. A very spunky four-year-old. What could possibly go wrong?
