A Sample from "Unfinished"

Bribing his way into John Stone's five-story Beacon Hill mansion had not been easy, but he knew too many people who knew a cousin who worked on Beacon Hill who knew a servant in the Stone family home for it to be impossible. A promise to help a friend's aunt's daughter's husband with an application for a clerk's position with his law firm was enough to get back door entry. Access was the grease that lubricated where money could not.

Here he stood, skulking about the servants' stairwell, squeezing into passages that threatened to cut off the blood supply to his arms. It was Thursday night, and he stood outside her door and tried to find a way to ask her if he could come inside and talk to her. He'd read the final letter and realized that this was what she did. She used a bitter, caustic sarcasm and wit to express her anger, then she'd cool down later. Right now he was as concerned with talking to her as he was with controlling his raging arousal. The angrier she got the more it excited him, and he wanted to strip off her clothes and take her right there on the hallway floor.

Moonlight poured into the hall through a warbled window, the light rippling and distorted, showcasing the glassmaker's imperfections. He looked outside and up, noting the cloudless sky. Stars appeared so close and their light diminished in comparison to the smiling moon.

Rap, rap rap. Thick knuckles made muffled sounds on the heavy oak door. Padded footsteps made their way and he felt the doorknob slide counter-clockwise in his hand. He held loosely, hoping to keep her quiet and calm lest he be revealed and subject him – and her – to the inevitable scandal that his discovery would provoke.

“James!” she hissed, surprise blasting from those glittering eyes, proper shock emanating from her pores. She stood straighter and leaned into his chest, looking up. “What on earth do you think you're doing here?”

Wisps of light cotton floated under a thick flannel gown lined with silk. So this is what that beautiful body looked like in simple form. She wore no undergarments and the hallway chill tightened her nipples enough so that he could see them, practically feel their texture in his mouth, a nub that –

Stronger than she looked, the force of her hand clenching his upper arm pulled him into her bedroom. She shut the door slowly, softly, behind her, then stood before him and crossed her arms over those arched nipples that possessed him.

“Are you mad? Breaking into my father's home?”

“You once asked whether I have a healthy fear of billionaire fathers,” he began.

She smirked and tipped her head to the left, like a wife evaluating her husband after a night out drinking with work friends. Her hair was mussed and the overall effect of her nightdress, the bed behind her, and his mad dash up the stairs as an intruder made him cross the simple feet between them and grasp her shoulders.

“My answer is 'no.'” And with that he leaned in and kissed her, pinning her arms to her chest for a few seconds before she wiggled and slid them around his waist, his hand cupping her jaw and bringing her lips to his. They were breaking so many rules in one embrace, here in her father's home, in her bedroom, his hands roaming down her back, pulling her and bringing her in to him, hips pressing against him as she stood on tip-toe.

Unfinished, available now on Kindle.

"Unfinished" now available on Kindle!

"Unfinished" is now available on Kindle:

IF LOVE NEVER DIES...then where does it go?

A fraudulent psychic. A soulless declaration. A father determined to disinherit her. Can love overcome all -- or will it need another generation?

Billionaire's daughter Lilith Stone never imagined she'd (almost) lose her virginity in her father's Beacon Hill garden, right under his watchful eye. Poor Southie boy James Hillman never intended to fall in love; ambition and wealth meant too much to him.

When this unlikely duo meets for the first time as Lilith's father tries to have her committed to the mental ward for a repeat performance, both find that "never" means nothing when it comes to love. As James prepares to find his fortune in the mines in Chile, Lilith struggles with the demons of her own past and a sexual proclivity that shatters known medical science assumptions.

With a cast of characters that range from a cuckolded billionaire to a beribboned chihuahua, this Edwardian tale of 1910s love -- and loss -- asks the question: If love never dies, then where does it go?

Fans of "Dead Again," "Somewhere in Time" and Possession may enjoy the story of these two souls destined to make history together.

**Note: Unfinished is a work of historical fiction with romantic elements, but it is not a "romance." Its sequel is Legs, which IS a traditional "romance." Read the books in this series in any order!**

New cover for Unfinished!

With overwhelming support for the "corset cover," your suggestions really helped! Some folks didn't like the tagline placement, and others wanted a splash of color. My editor pointed out that Lilith is a blond, not a brunette.

So here we go!
