Sir John Dewey Fanning (Jack to his familiars) is magistrate of a corner of Oxfordshire plagued by one incident of petty mischief after another. To add to his aggravation, his mama and younger brother are joining his household for the winter, and Jack’s domestic staff can’t seem to sort itself out.
He turns to Miss Madeline Hennessey to act as his mother’s temporary companion, despite the fact that Jack has long harbored feelings for the ever-competent and self-reliant Miss Hennessey. Madeline reluctantly accepts the position, and proximity leads to investigations of an amorous nature. Can Jack stop the crime spree and steal Madeline’s heart, too?
The Trouble with Dukes
Part of the Windham Brides series
Hamish MacHugh knows quite well that the dukedom unexpectedly thrust upon him bodes nothing but trouble for a man who’d rather be tramping through the heather of his Highland home. Retiring spinster Megan Windham can teach him how to waltz and make small talk, but can Hamish teach his Meggie to listen to the whisperings of her heart rather than the gossip that follows him everywhere?
Also coming in 2016...

Who’s Been Naughty and Wonderful?
I’ve tentatively titled my Christmas novella Patience for Christmas, it’s complete-in-draft at about 32,000 words, and should be released on or around November 1. I might bundle this story with a novella by another author, or I might get inspired over the summer, and write a companion story to go with it. The heroine is Patience Friendly, a spinster who supports herself writing an advice column, and the hero is her publisher, Dougal MacHugh. There’s mistletoe, and crumpets, and some kissing… well, a lot of kissing. Watch this page for details, and read a sneak peek!
The Windham Brides Series!
Elizabeth, Charlotte, Megan, and Anwen Windham have been spinsters long enough, in the opinion of their aunt, the Duchess of Moreland. Despite her grace’s plans (and—ahem—his grace’s schemes) the four young ladies refuse to marry for anything less than passionate, true love. Alas for matchmaking relations, that commodity is scarcer than handsome, wealthy, single young dukes!
Grace is also drafting a novel that plucks a modern day Scottish earl from the Highland Holidays world (does the name Brodie sound familiar?), and drops him amid the bucolic splendor of Damson Valley, of Kiss and Tell fame. There's a lady farmer, some misunderstandings, a wee dram or two, some kisses, a few more misunderstandings... details to follow just as soon as the characters come up for air!
