Finally, we meet the mysterious Librarian in the third of my contemporary romance series about descendants of the magical Malcolms and their scientific heroes.
I had a lot of fun writing this book, as you can probably tell from the blurb below. Who wouldn’t enjoy throwing together a stoic, military-minded mechanic with an anarchic passionate psychic who will do anything to save her sister? I love watching two disparate people peel back their respective layers to discover they were made for each other, don’t you?

Sparks fly when special forces meets psychic forces
Brilliant psychic Nadine Malcolm is held prisoner in an asylum by her stepfather, a power-mad general. As the Librarian, she secretly hijacks computers to prevent his plans to turn paranormal children into weapons. When her younger sister ominously disappears, Nadine reaches through cyberspace for help.
Ex-Special Forces warrior Magnus Oswin has focused his formidable talents on stopping the rogue general who once held him prisoner. After picking up the Librarian’s frantic plea, he roars into the fray in his latest engineering marvel, a modified muscle car.
The last thing Nadine needs is another military control freak in her life. The last thing Magnus needs is an aluminum-foil-wearing nutcase. But fierce attraction forges an uneasy alliance as two desperate people fight to save the children who cannot save themselves.

Newly appointed priestess to the Temple of Aelynn, Tasia Olympus is burdened with the greatest task to face any leader — saving her acolytes from a tsunami and finding them a new home. Her ability to communicate with the goddess cannot tell her how to protect three dozen virgins and an equal number of soldiers and sailors as they flee their doomed island.
Experienced captain, Nautilus the Navigator, can tackle storms and sea, but obeying a young Seer who tells him to sail impossible shoals requires a level of belief that he doesn’t possess. Giving up his future for a priestess who must remain untouched was not the payment he’d expected for his years of service.
Together, they must build a new home and sanctuary out of a volcanic island that promises plenty to those willing to sacrifice all they know for a future they can’t predict.

If you’ll remember, Nick from the earlier Rebellious Sons books ( WICKED WYCKERLY and DEVILISH MONTAGUE), is a laid-back man about town not much inclined to do more than escort the ladies about. Or so we’re led to believe! Find out the truth—the e-book is now available at Amazon, Nook and at iTunes, and the print version is also available. Read an excerpt.
The Pirate meets the Princess
Nora Adams is a schoolteacher and a poor seaman’s widow--until the day she inherits a fortune and is sent to London to deliver a mysterious message to a foreign princess—who looks surprisingly like Nora. Once Princess Elena receives Nora’s missive, she steals Nora’s identity and vanishes. Left to fend for herself in ill-fitting royal shoes, Nora determinedly sets out in search of the royal escapee.
Nick Atherton long ago retired from his villainous life of piracy, but he’s dragged out of his role as fashionable fribble to protect the princess—rather, the impostor. Nick would far rather seduce the comely widow, but first he will have to dodge French spies and pursue misbehaving royalty.
For the fate of a nation and a princess, Devil Nick takes to the high seas again, but will his illegal exploits cost him the respectable woman he loves?
Damn Him to Hell, the second in the Jamie Quaid Saturn’s Daughters series, is scheduled for June 25th 2013.
