A Lily Among Thorns
My second book will be rereleased by Samhain.
Lady Serena Ravenshaw is one of London’s most prosperous women, but she's never forgotten the misery that set her on the path to success. Nor has she forgotten the drunken young gentleman who gave her the means to start her long, tortuous climb out of the gutter.
Sent to Serena for help to recover a stolen family heirloom, Solomon Hathaway is shocked to discover she's the same bedraggled waif to whom he once gave his entire quarterly allowance. As they delicately tread common ground, they must negotiate a treacherous world of crime and espionage before they can find love.

This is the second book in my Lively St. Lemeston series! It will also be published by Samhain.
Through wit and sheer force of will, Ash Cohen has raised himself and his little brother Rafe out of the London slums and made them (in his unbiased opinion) the best two-man con artist team in England. He’s heartbroken to learn Rafe wants out of the life, but determined to give his brother what he wants. When he hears that the head of the Tory Party in Lively St. Lemeston has just died, leaving his daughter Lydia with a mound of debts and a thoroughly held-in-trust dowry, Ash has a brilliant idea: he’ll set up a marriage between Rafe and Lydia, promising Lydia that in exchange for a percentage of her fortune, she’ll have her money, complete freedom, and never have to deal with her husband again.
Now all he has to do is get Lydia and Rafe to fall in love before the wedding. It seems simple enough: a clever, lonely woman and a charming English country town at Christmastime. What more could Rafe want from life? But when a terrible family secret comes to light, Rafe disappears and Lydia demands that Ash marry her instead. Did Ash chose the perfect wife for his brother…or for himself?
