"...the passion and complications of Emily and Jonathon's sparkling and lively romance are developed with respect, painted in gold and rose tones with a soft brush and a delicate touch."         - H.J. Smith, reviewer

Love's Destiny
The simmering rebellion in the American colonies is the backdrop for this smoldering romance thwarted by a dying father’s wish and opposing loyalties.  When Jonathon Brentwood, captain of the Destiny and committed patriot, becomes the guardian of Emily Wentworth, a young English woman, each expects to meet someone very different. Emily is not the child of her father’s stories, nor is Jonathon feeble and old as she had imagined. Instantly attracted, both try to honor George Wentworth’s dying wish and maintain the relationship he envisioned.  As passion overcomes them, their pasts and the future of a young country stand in the way of their destiny. Published by Crimson Romance and available in print and as an ebook.

Questions about her aunt’s death lead Jesse to investigate events surrounding it and the people involved, but she uncovers a web of deceit that reaches far beyond the occurrences of twenty-eight years ago. Still reeling from a broken engagement, Jesse finds it difficult to trust anyone, even her self-absorbed mother. Her dearest friend Maggie, aka Sr. Angelina, is her lifeline to sanity. Joe Riley is irresistible, but secrets obstruct involvement with him until Jesse can solve the mystery of the Cavanaugh House.

My third grade teacher told me I was an excellent writer, and that affirmation launched a passion for writing that has lasted to this day. Never say words don't matter...they can change a life.  Thanks, Mrs. McGrath.
