   "​He might have pointy ears and horns, for all I know!"

     ​Angelica Dawson was extremely upset when she realized her Uncle had plans for her to marry a total stranger.  She would be leaving the only home she had ever known; the servants she loved as family, for a place she'd never been and a man she had never met.

      ​After meeting him, she was even more distraught. He seemed to have a very long list of things he considered to be unacceptable behavior in young ladies. But if he thought for a moment that his new bride could be easily molded into the girl he desired, he was much mistaken, for she was as determined not to be "tamed," as he was to "tame" her! 

This fictional tale of romance is adventure-packed, and fast paced. It may also be found on amazon books.

 Now, coming home from school six years later, she was shocked, to not only find out he wished to see her again, but that he also wished to marry her!
     When he explained to her on the day he proposed, that he thought she needed the discipline of a husband, Merrie was furious, and decided she might never marry. ​Period.  However, as she rethought her ideas on marriage, another plan was hatching; an attempt at evil, and Francis seemed the only person who truly cared about her safety.
     Merrie only wanted one thing from Francis; his unconditional and everlasting love.  However, she began to believe, as time went on, that she would never hear those precious words.     Or would she?

     Billy, now the Deputy Sheriff and known as William, ​was well respected in Strasburg these days. He had grown up; he was not at all sure, however, that Gracie had.

     And Gracie was about to find that out.

      Flaxen haired and blue eyed Miriam Hanner Clarke had been widowed at age 28, when Burton had gone to serve in the Civil War and was killed in battle. But she had filled her days of dealing with his loss by working in the dormitory, which had been turned into a hospital. No longer the quiet,  shy, stuttering girl she had been when she arrived, Miri was now a competent young woman who was determined to ease suffering any way she could.
      But she was certainly unprepared for the challenge of caring for Captain Nate Alley, the recipient of a gunshot wound, now under her care.
      Captain Alley had no patience for being injured. He was quite accustomed to being in control and in charge, and having others submit to his leadership. When challenged by this tiny stubborn, independent young woman who was half his size, his first instinct was to put her over his knee. Growing stronger each day, he was just as determined that she would submit, as she was not to.
Who was going to win this battle? ​

Book One: Conquered by the Captain

cover art for Conquered by the Captain. Couple in foreground on the right side, the cargo ship i n the background with aqua blues and golds and the look of old paper and script softly showing in the background.

 Arabella St. John faces a new life, in a new land, as she boards the  merchant ship from England to America. Her father has arranged for her  marriage in New Orleans – to her dismay. She has no desire to be there.  Everything and everyone she loves is in England. The chief-mate seems  friendly enough, but then she meets Captain Gregory Smythe, who neither  needs nor wants women aboard his ship. And he’s quite vocal about it.

It’s  ‘hate at first sight.’
Gregory is unhappy at the thought of having to  be responsible for not one, but two ladies, especially after finding out  that privateers have recently sunk two merchant ships off the coast of  the Carolinas.
 On top of that, females aboard a vessel with an all-male  crew are trouble; everyone knows that. And when food goes missing and a  stowaway is found hidden in his very own cabin, he realizes trouble  follows Arabella wherever she goes. When the only two women booked for  passage realize they are destined to marry the same man, it all seems to  come apart. And that is just the beginning of their troubles!

 Lillianna Collingwood is beautiful and graceful, but she is every bit as  hot-headed as her hair is red. When she decides to marry Earl, the  commander of the Arabella, she is completely unaware that his name is  not really “Earl” at all. He is Lord Darby, the son of the Earl of  Darbyshire. Elated at first, she soon realizes she now has to learn to  act the part of a lady. Having grown up in a convent orphanage from the  time she was five, she learned to be wild. She excels in cheating at  cards and considers stealth one of her best virtues. A lady? She’s not  sure she can do it.

There's a reason Darby hasn’t told her who he is. She’s entirely too concerned with titles, money and possessions.  He’s not only determined to teach her those things are not as important  as character, but also that her hot-headed behavior is not acceptable.

Lily  tries, but she isn’t prepared when the past seems to come back to haunt  her. Her past, her nightmares – everything seems to be against her when  she arrives. Even Darby’s own mother refuses to accept her into the  family, making her feel like an outcast. Darby remains her rock, her  anchor, but Lily is unable to make herself confide in him about the  terrors that plague her night after night.
