1800s – Colorado

When scandalous madam Delilah Goodnight flings open the doors to the newest, most decadent saloon in Defiance, two good men will be forced to face their personal demons.

Charles McIntyre founded the rowdy mining town of Defiance and early on was more than happy to rule in hell rather than serve in heaven. But things have changed. Now, he has faith, a new wife…and a ten-year-old half-breed son.

Logan Tillane, Defiance’s newly arrive preacher, carries a Bible in his hand, a gun on his hip, and uses both to fight for lost souls.

Delilah has come to town intent on destroying both men as she drags their town to hell…

A Promise in Defiance is an old-fashioned Western reminiscent of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven and Pale Rider! Gritty and rich with drama, this is a riveting addition to the bestselling Wild West saga of love and faith in a godless frontier town.

1787 – Africa

The Grace in Africa series is a sweeping three-part historical saga of slavery and freedom that takes the reader from an island off the west coast of Africa to Southern plantations and finally on to Canada. All her life, Grace Winslow, the daughter of a mixed marriage between an English sea captain and an African princess, has been sheltered from the truth about the family business–the capture and trade of slaves.
 
Set in 1787 in West Africa, The Call of Zulina opens as the scorching harmattan winds blow. Desperate to avoid marriage to an odious suitor, Grace escapes the family compound only to be caught up in a slave revolt at the fortress of Zulina. Soon, she begins to grasp the brutality and ferocity of the family business. Held for ransom, viciously maimed by a runaway slave, and threatened with death, Grace is finally jerked into reality and comes to sympathize with the plight of the captives. She admires their strength and courage and is genuinely moved by the African Cabeto’s passion, determination, and willingness to sacrifice anything, including his own life, for his people’s freedom.
