Welcome to my historicals, the stories I’ve written about bygone times and places.
Here you’ll find my Devil books, the stories about the men of Donovan & Sons, a company which specializes in carrying “high-risk risk to high-risk places.” Founded during the California Gold Rush by William Donovan, it’s always given a warm welcome to combat veterans. Many of its customers can’t afford to live without Donovan & Sons’ services, whether they love or hate its men’s’ high-handed competence – an attitude my heroines can understand all too well.
The Devil books are written to stand alone, although William Donovan appears in each book.
“Talbot’s Ace” resides here, a western novella published in IMPROPER GENTLEMEN. It tells of a Southern-born gunfighter forced to make a hideous choice, between his only friend and that most appalling of females – a Northern aristocrat.
“The Seduction of Mrs. Rutledge” also resides here, a novella published in NOT JUST FOR TONIGHT. It’s an American Civil War story, about a Northern cavalry officer who must use military techniques to seduce his wife.
