It's been more than TEN years since my first book was published and I'm happy to announce that book along with the other two in the sweet historical romance trilogy are finally available digitally. I affectionately call this my three sisters and a steamboat series, and it holds a special place in my heart. You'll also see as you read them how this series sparked my interest in writing mystery.
After her father's death leaves her family penniless and homeless, Alex Parker hopes to profit from her family's sole remaining possession, an aging steamboat called Amazing Grace. With the funds from this sale, she can buy back her family home. But she needs a captain and no one on the river wants to work for a woman. Needing help, she turns to Captain Matthew Kinkade, a man who wants the boat for himself, a man whose desperation drives him to agree to Alex's outrageous plan of marriage in name only.
The love Matt and Alex find aboard Amazing Grace is powerful, but is it strong enough to withstand her insecurities, his tragic past, and the violent acts of a man out to destroy them both?
Shy, charming Lou Parker is keeping secrets. Secrets about who she truly is, her job, and what she desires from life. It's not until she falls for local Reverend John Hewitt that she realizes her secrets need to be shared...even though she risks losing him forever.
