Theft of Shadows

England 1799: A lady thief robs a spy–and from that moment on, the price of love is highway robbery...

 Former spy Gabriel d’Aubrigny, the Chevalier de Lesgardes, returns to England with a purse of gold and plans to start a new life. His luck vanishes like mist on the heath when a highwayman takes even his horse. Penniless, Gabriel must turn to the enigmatic spymaster, Sir Alaric Fitzwilliam, for work. His mission: to pose as a courtier and unmask a man suspected of using dark magic against the Throne...

 After stealing from a handsome traveler, Anne Tremaine uses her new fortune to pose as a wealthy widow. While hunting London society for an old enemy, she meets Gabriel once more. Every encounter with the Frenchman is a dangerous game, for his touch ignites desire--but one slip might send her from his embrace to the gallows. Then again, she would wager her stolen jewels that Gabriel is not as he appears...

Draw Down the Darkness

In a battle of intrigue and magic, passion is a powerful weapon

In eighteenth century London, England’s most talented spy risks his honor—and his life—to rescue the one woman who could heal his heart

In order to save his family from ruin, Nicholas Saville, Viscount Redfern, secretly pledges his sword to King George’s spymaster. Espionage suits him well, except that his duties take him far away from England and his betrothed.

Heartbroken by her beloved’s long and unexplained absences, Helen Barrett breaks off their engagement. Soon she is courted by a powerful earl, a man well-versed in both magic and treason. He inspires Helen’s utmost distrust until he gives her a stunning sapphire necklace—a gift that traps her under his dark spell.  

Redfern’s mission is to stop the murderous Hellfire League, but he will risk that and more to save—and win back—the woman he adores…

In the midst of the French Revolution, a viscount’s daughter enlists the help of a man who turns out to be a perilous threat to her family…

When her father is taken prisoner by the French, Sarah Leaford is desperate to rescue him from the dungeons of Paris. Her success depends on one man: Gentleman Jack, the greatest thief in all of London. What she doesn’t know is that Jack is already well acquainted with her father …

Years ago, Lord Carleigh framed Jack for murder, leaving him a ruined man destined for the gallows. Now it is Jack’s chance for revenge. But, to achieve this, he must resist falling for the beautiful noblewoman and her mysterious, untamed magic.

Drawn together by a dangerous plan, they vow to do anything to resist the insatiable desire that overtakes them. Anything, that is, except surrender their mission… because Sarah and Jack are not simply a maiden and a thief, and more lives than theirs hang in the balance.

So much is at stake that even the dead get involved.
