"Wow Wow Wow! - such an amazing story. I am so glad that I got this book - I could not put it down!" Goodreads Reviewer

Newly engaged and deliriously happy, Mattie, a talented graphic designer, and Jeremy, a successful partner in a law firm, look forward to a lifetime of wedding bliss in their new home in Sedona, Arizona. But their perfect love story disintegrates when Mattie discovers evidence of Jeremy's massive betrayal. Unable to face the memories that haunt her with every aching step, Mattie flees to Mercer Island, Washington to start over. Unfortunately, she can't run away from the boundless pain as she struggles to make sense of the life she thought she knew - until she meets Cade.

Tattooed engineer by day, lead singer in a rock band at night, Cade has experienced his own brand of pain with the loss of his college sweetheart. He and Mattie instantly bond over their mutual heartbreak, and as their friendship deepens, it ignites a new flame within Mattie, soothing the constant heartache for her former fiancée.

Just when Mattie thinks she may have found another stab at happiness, Jeremy reenters her life, and with him, all the crushing memories. It's soon clear, though, that the trauma from her past may not be quite what it first seemed. Will the truth bring closure and a new beginning - or will it mean the end of both relationships forever?

Readers will instantly be swept up in the saga of love and heartbreak that unfolds. Offering a rarely-before-seen glimpse into the heart and mind of a romantic villain, audiences will find a welcome reprieve from the typical romance novel.

The mind can hold powerful secrets.

When Dr. Jessica Paladon worked for her friend, Dr. Dean Devya, she helped create Nadia, one of the world’s few Minders. Tough circumstances drove her away from that life, and to protect the secrets, she willingly took a drug that induced amnesia.

But now she needs those memories.

Two children—her children—Nadia and Varick are competing in a winners-take-all, losers-might-die competition for the biggest secret government contract out there. They’re fighting for the right to exist.

If Jessie can’t remember, how will she help them survive?

Interview with the Author:
Q: What makes the Devya’s Children series special?
A: At the heart, this series is about family and friendship as well as the ethical questions surrounding genetic engineering. It’s been likened to the Orphan Black TV show. I like to think of it as a more family-friendly take on those themes. The premise is that a brilliant scientist and his team created several genetically altered children who have special Gifts, such as telepathy, healing, and dream shaping.

The journal/letters style is not unique to this series, but I believe ultimately it suits my need to get in these people’s heads. I’ve worked very hard to fill the books with relatable characters. Some of them happen to have superpowers, but as Jillian points out, everybody has gifts, if not Gifts. It’s just a matter of finding out what those gifts are and how they can be applied for the good of the world.

Q: What order should I read them in?
A: I suggest the traditional order of:
- Ashlynn’s Dreams
- Nadia’s Tears
- Malia’s Miracles
- Varick’s Quest
… before jumping into the prequel—The Dark Side of Science—or the Ashlynn’s Dreams Shorts.

The prequel and the short stories can certainly be read as standalones, but they may be more enjoyable once the reader’s already familiar with some of the characters.

Q: Where does this book fit in the series? What theme(s) make it special?
A: The Dark Side of Science is a prequel to the Devya’s Children series. On one level, it’s about the battle to gain a secret government contract that will allow the research to move forward. On another level, it’s a personal journey for Dr. Jessica Paladon. Those already familiar with the series will recognize Dr. Paladon as Nadia and Varick’s genetic mother.

The story references events mentioned in Ashlynn’s Dreams and Nadia’s Tears. It explores questions like how far would you go to protect those you love?

By the way, Brian Troxell’s performance with the audio is stellar. (I love all my narrators.)

Q: Why should readers check out this series?
A: Because Devya’s Children will introduce you to a charming cast of characters dealing with some big issues. Right or wrong, the children exist, so now what? If you have the power to change the world, should you? What are the personal cost and consequences of shaping the world? These are all questions explored by the series.

Q: Can the reader get the whole series at once?
A: Readers can grab books 1-3 in a combination. I’ve not bundled in Book 4 yet, but hop on over to my amazon author page or website to get plugged in and keep up with the current promos.

Charlotte Stuart is an heiress dedicated to charitable causes who's been betrayed by the false love of a fortune hunter before. Ridiculed by Paris society for her mistake, she vows never to fall victim to the weakness of love again. Driven back to England by the collapse of the Peace of Amiens, she enters London society and meets Lord Edward Woodcliff, a handsome Viscount in straightened circumstances. Falling for him means risking being humiliated again.

Edward has come to London to find a wife. Made leery of marriage by his father’s disastrous second marriage, Edward feigns poverty in order to find a woman who loves him and not his wealth. He loses his heart to the independent and spirited Charlotte, but her fear of being betrayed, and his hesitation to make a matrimonial mistake, prove difficult to overcome.

All seems hopeless until Edward challenges Charlotte to a wager. If he wins, he gains her hand in marriage. If he loses, then Charlotte is free of him. Charlotte accepts the wager only to lose her hand and her heart to Edward. Now Charlotte must put aside her fears of being betrayed by love long enough to let Edward into her life and admit he is the man of her dreams.

Lady's Wager was previously published in 2008. The emotions are heightened and the internal conflicts deepened in this new version of my clean Regency romance. 50,000 words.
