Cottage in the Mist

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

CottageInTheMist_400I am so excited to announce that my newest book, Cottage in the Mist is now available for preorder!  (Release date March 22!)  Cottage in the Mist, a sequel to Everything in its Time, is a time travel romance set in fifteenth century Scotland.

Here’s the blurb:

Mo Chridhe Gu Bràth.  My heart forever.

Ancient words, a powerful legend, a timeless love…

Lily Chastain has lost everything—her family, her inheritance, and her fiancé.  Desperate to escape her pain, she heads for a remote castle in Scotland, but is trapped by a violent storm along the way. Injured and alone, she is drawn by a lighted cottage in the mist.  What she finds there will change her life forever.

Attacked by a vicious rival and betrayed by someone from his own clan, Bram Macgillivray finds himself alone and on the run.  His father is dead, his holding all but destroyed.  Wanting vengeance, he seeks out the help of his cousins, but finds instead a beautiful woman who calls to his heart.

After losing herself in an unexpected and wonderful night of sensuality, Lily wakes to find Bram gone.  But even more disturbing, when she leaves the sanctuary of the cottage, she finds that it has disappeared as well.

Separated by over five hundred years, yet tied together through a magic stronger than the bonds of time and place, Lily and Bram fight to find each other again.  And as Lily uncovers the secrets of the past, she must race to find a way back to save the only man she’s ever truly loved.

And here’s an excerpt:

Scotland – 1468

There was danger.  Bram could feel it all around him. Fire raced up the wooden steps that lead up to the door leading into the tower.   And he could see more flames thrusting out of the windows, black smoke spiraling into the night sky.  Throwing his plaid over his face, he ran up the steps, but was stopped by one of the tower’s guards.

The man raised his claymore, his eyes narrowed as the deadly blade began its descent.  Bram pivoted, and then swung his own weapon, confused as to where he was and why he was fighting.  The man fell, only to be replaced by another.  Bram called to him, some part of him recognizing a face that still seemed a stranger, but this man, too, seemed intent only on stopping him.

His mind argued that nothing made sense, even as his heart screamed that he must get inside.  If he did not then that which was most precious to him would be lost.  He knew this as surely as he drew breath.

With a twist and a parry he drew the man off, and then made quick work of him, dashing through the opening of the tower, down the hallway and into the great hall.  A place meant for comfort it offered only danger now.  It too was full of flame, and lined with enemies. 

Again the thought brought him up short.  But there was no time to try and understand.  Fear pushed him forward.  He surged into the fray, moving toward the stairway at the far end of the room.  It gave access to the chambers above and it was there he knew he would find her.

His brain recoiled.  Find who?  But his heart urged him forward, and he fought his way to the bottom of the steps, then ran up them, taking them two at a time, knowing the other swordsmen were fast on his heels. 

At the top he froze for a moment, the thick smoke disorienting him.  The fire was much worse here.  Pushing forward, he breathed through the heavy wool of his plaid, keeping sword at the ready.  The first chamber was empty.  As was the solar and the chamber beyond it.  But then from down the narrow hallway he heard a cry.

Heart thundering in his ears, he ran through the flames and smoke.  A timber fell, glancing off of his shoulder, and he hardly felt it, the need to find her overriding everything else.

He called for her, his voice swallowed by the raging fire.  Another timber fell, and a wall collapsed.  He jumped across a gaping hole in the floor, landing hard, but still moving.   The doorway ahead was edged in flames, the smoke and fire roiling like some kind of evil spirit. 

Ignoring the danger, he sprinted forward, through the opening, again calling her name.

And then, through the shimmering heat, he saw her, tied to the bedframe, her long hair unbound, her green eyes wide with fear. 

“Go back,” she screamed.

But he pushed onward, stumbling as still more of the burning tower fell.  “I’ll no’ leave you.”   His words were whipped away by the inferno surrounding them.  But he knew that she had heard him.

There were only a few feet between them now.  There was bruising on her face, and a trickle of blood at the corner of her beautiful mouth, and he swore there would be hell to pay.

But first, he had to free her.

He reached out a hand, but as he did so, the ceiling above him crashed to the ground.  One moment he was looking into her eyes—and the next, she was gone.

Random Heroes Collection!

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Dee_AfterTwilight300dpi360x576I’m proud to announce the digital release of the first two books in my Random Heroes Collection.  With an emphasis on both romance and suspense, Random Heroes is a collection of loosely interrelated romantic thrillers that can be read in any order.

After Twilight:

It was the perfect place to disappear…

When Kacy Macgrath’s life crumbled two years ago, she changed her name and escaped to her grandmother’s cottage in Ireland.  Here she lives anonymously, with no reminders of the past — except the terrifying images that continue to haunt her dreams.  Images of the stormy night her husband, Alex, walked out on her — and fell into the raging waters near their Long Island home.  After his death, Kacy uncovered secrets about Alex she was better off not knowing, so she ran away.  Now someone is watching her.

Braedon Roche has traveled across an ocean looking for justice — to expose Kacy Macgrath as a master forger who, along with her late husband had nearly destroyed his career as an art dealer.  What Braedon doesn’t expect is his undeniable attraction to the fragile widow hiding behind a web of deceptions.  But Braedon isn’t the only man following Kacy.  A savage killer stalks from the shadows, chipping away at her sanity, and trapping her in an unspeakable nightmare…

Dee_DarkOfTheNight300dpi360x576Dark of the Night:

After the tragic deaths of her mother and sister, eight year old Riley O’Brien vows never to desert her father. Twenty-one years later, she stands by her father’s side as he makes a bid for the Presidency– trading her dreams for his. Her desires perpetually on hold, she has erected an emotional wall to keep out the prying eyes of the media. But her defenses are about to be shattered.

Investigative reporter Jake Mahoney hates politics and beautiful women. Recently divorced, and on the trail of a major story, Jake resents wasting his time covering an ice princess at a presidential rally. But when a car bomb throws him, literally, on top of the candidate’s daughter, Jake quickly realizes that Riley O’Brien is pure fire. No one has ever gotten under his skin like this before.

Their attraction is instant, and possibly fatal, as dangerous secrets from the past explode into the present, destroying one life after another in a nightmare of blind ambition…

Midnight Rain:

For undercover FBI agent Katie Cavanaugh this was supposed to be a routine job-go in, get the evidence, catch a killer. But from the moment she lays eyes on John Brighton the intense charge in the air between them lets her know that the stakes will be higher this time around. Posing as his physical therapist allows Katie first-hand access to him but she can’t let the intimacy of living together cloud her judgment. She will need her instincts sharp if she is going to find him guilty…or prove his innocence.

Left for dead along a deserted highway, John awakes to find himself physically weakened, mentally scarred, and the lead suspect in a murder investigation. The only bright point in his life is Katie, warm and beautiful, she is the one person he thinks he can trust. But as a net of suspicion closes in, and as loyalties divide, John and Katie must work together to unravel the maze of secrets and lies that threaten to keep them apart forever…

Two years after the accidental death of her husband and son, Sara Martin is still wearing her wedding band, using it as a shield against a future without love. Then a persistent prank caller shatters her fragile peace of mind and brings detective Eric D’Angelo into her life. Eric reminds her of the passion she never thought she’d feel again — and the idea of surrendering to it scares her. But Sara will soon discover that she never knew the meaning of the word fear… until now.

Even for a seasoned detective like Eric D’Angelo, the rash of murders haunting the city of Austin seems unbelievably grisly. Still, he’s worked enough of these cases to know that eventually even a murderer as meticulous as the Sinatra Killer will make a mistake. Then Sara becomes the madman’s target. Between fighting off the ghosts in her past and the monster in her present, Eric is forced to wonder if their hopes of a future together will ever see the light of day…  A
