Where to find my books

I started my writing career back in the 1980s with the publication of my first work, A Gentleman's Mistress.  Beloved Avenger followed the following year, both published in paperback by Zebra Books.


In the near future, electronic versions of these two early publications will be available on Kindle and similiar  e-book readers.  I will keep you updated on the progress of the conversion from paperback and let you know when downloads will be available.Current and backlist books are available online from Amazon and various other websites.


Current titles are also available from the Mills & Boon website, and in store at WHSmith and supermarket stockists. They can also be ordered from your local bookseller. If, like me, you enjoy visiting your local library you will find some earlier, hard to find, titles there.

First publications

A Gentlemen's Mistress


Sarah should have been grateful for Mark Tarrington's timely intervention.  Without a reference, no one but the notoriously handsome lord would ever have hired such a young and lovely widow as a governess for his niece and nephew.  But instead Sarah was furious - at being forced to accept Tarrington's favours, at his ruthless arrogance and taunting remarks, and, most of all at the way her heart jumped every time his piercing eyes bore into hers...



A breath of scandal had always surrounded Mark Tarrington's far from saintly existence.  Never before had he hesitated to bed any woman he desired.  But the intriguing and rather mysterious Sarah Thornton was obviously going to require patience.  Unfortunately, that was the one quality Tarrington had very little of...

Beloved Avenger

BELOVED AVENGER   Another early publication from the 1980s being converted to ebook and due out next year.



​There was no mistaking Sir Clifford Moore's sardonically handsome features as he stood at Almack's staring at her.  Emily shivered at the sight of the thin scar on his left cheek.  That had not been there before.  She knew then that he would never forget - could never forget - what her family had done to him.  And that he would take his revenge any way he could...


Moore was surprised to see what a beauty little Emily had become.  How ironic - and fortuitous - that the family who had stolen his inheritance had now offered him the perfect means to exact vengeance.   This time it was Moore who held the power - and Emily was in no position to defy his wishes, whatever they might be...
