The Marquis of Granville’s deadly efficiency makes him invaluable to the Crown. But his latest mission has nothing to do with his work for England and everything to do with avenging the murder of two members of his family. Killing would be too good for Bernard Leggit, the wealthy and corrupt merchant responsible for their deaths. Granville has a better plan: Seduce the old man’s young wife, Hattie, then let society know about their affair. For Leggit, living with shame will be worse than death.

Hattie Leggit married her odious husband in a devil’s bargain to save her parents from debtors’ prison. She has a scheme for freeing herself from this private misery, but foiling Leggit is taking too long. The opportune arrival of the dashing Marquis of Granville inspires a daring new plan: Pretend to engage in a very discreet affair with Granville and make her freedom the price for not flaunting their liaison in society.

When Hattie responds to him, Granville smells his revenge, but nothing goes as he had planned. Hattie drives him wild with need, until he finds himself forgetting his purpose. Although desire is new to Hattie, she manages to resist surrender—until love and yearning conquer all doubts. But will they join forces in time to outwit a vicious enemy with more murder in mind?

A Bayou Book

RT TOP PICK! 4½ Stars.
Cameron masterfully takes readers to a truly enticing place with this suspenseful tale. Her vivid storytelling makes each scene come alive and will draw you in from the first page.” —Debbie Richardson, Romantic Times

Just weeks after inheriting Rosebank, a once-magnificent plantation on the banks of Bayou Teche, David Patin died in a mysterious fire that destroyed his popular New Orleans restaurant. In the aftermath, his daughter Vivian and wife Charlotte are shocked to discover that the family finances are as run-down as their only remaining asset—Rosebank.

With her degree in hotel management and her mother’s restaurant expertise, Vivian Patin decides to restore the family fortunes by turning the lushly overgrown and decaying Rosebank into a resort hotel with all the sultry charm of old Louisiana. But Vivian’s dream becomes a nightmare when she finds the family’s lawyer dead on the sprawling grounds of the estate—with a rose on his chest and a brilliant lipstick mark on his cheek. Suddenly Vivian begins to wonder if someone is targeting Rosebank and the Patin family . . . and if her father’s death was, in fact, an accident.

Dissatisfied with the local police investigation, Vivian approaches Spike Devol, deputy sheriff of a nearly town, who has a reputation for being smart, honest and tough. She asks him to help her find the truth. But the instant attraction between them leaves Spike reluctant to get involved–until he discovers that Vivian could be the next victim. When another shocking murder occurs at Rosebank, it’s clear that the stakes have never been higher—and that now it’s up to Spike and Vivian to catch a killer . . . before he kills again.

A Bayou Book

*Don’t miss the expanded version of this book, DEAD END, available January 2014.

Toussaint, Louisiana, a sleepy bayou town where people are accustomed to feeling safe among the cypress trees, the mist off sluggish waters and Spanish moss trailing from live oaks. Good time living to a zydeco beat. Yeah! Then, the body of singer Bonnie Blue is found, her neck broken. Local doctor Reb O’Brien doesn’t believe the gossip–that Bonnie accidentally fell to her death. She remembers all too well the murders of two other woman a couple of years earlier. The killer was caught and placed behind bars. Now, what happened to Bonnie raises chilling questions about a case thought closed–and someone is trying to frighten Reb into leaving well enough alone.

Marc Girard believes the dead woman may be his missing sister and, though he vowed to stay away from his hometown of Toussaint, he comes back to search for the truth–even if it means joining forces with Reb, a woman he left behind along with his past. With only each other to trust, their mutual wariness gives way to a passion that marks them for gossip in a town ready to explode–and makes them vulnerable to the greatest betrayal of all.

Latimer More, lodger at 7A Mayfair Square and widely known as “the most daring lover in England,” has finally found the woman of his dreams—Jenny McBride. But what startles everyone—Latimer’s fellow tenants, his family and even Jenny—is what an educated man of business sees in a poor, orphaned milliner’s assistant. However, Latimer has looked past the surface—past the demure protestations and patched clothing—and seen the fiercely independent and generous soul within the auburn-haired Scottish lass.

Latimer may be sure of his intentions, but Jenny has her doubts. Can she trust a man with the sort of reputation Latimer has with the fairer sex? Surely he is only toying with her and intends to toss her aside after he has tired of her? Moreover, even if Latimer is serious and Jenny were to accept his marriage offer, it would mean revealing the hold that the vile Morely Bucket has upon her.

The odious slumlord, Bucket, presses Jenny, behind on her rent, to offer up sexual favors in exchange for canceling her debts. Jenny has resisted so far, but Bucket has become more and more forcibly persistent as time has passed. Jenny believes that if Latimer were to find out that she was involved in such sordid goings-on that his interest in her would quickly vanish. But Jenny doesn’t know Latimer More well enough. He does find out, and it only intensifies his resolve to free the valiant waif from the clutches of the archfiend Bucket—but not before enlisting the aid of everyone at 7 Mayfair Square.

ISBN-13: 978-1575668208

In TELL ME WHY, readers enter the world of pianist Carolee Burns. At its peak, Carolee’s celebrated career took her all over the world. Then, eighteen months ago, she dropped out of sight, emerging only occasionally to perform at Bistro Brandy, a tiny club in suburban Seattle. It is here that Max Wolfe watches in the darkness, a silent observer nursing a drink as Carolee’s poignant music washes over him. Drawn to her sadness, compelled to know the reason for her sudden withdrawal, Max searches for answers to his questions.

Carolee won’t talk about the ruin of her life — the sudden crashing end to her once-happy marriage, the agonizing estrangement from her daughter, and her ex-husband’s vindictive behavior. It’s enough that by reinventing her life, she has found some measure of peace.

However, that peace is about to be shattered. No sooner does Max dare to reach out to the woman he has watched from the shadows, than a tragedy reveals secrets that can’t be ignored — and that will change their lives forever.

Finding Ian

Thorndike Press
July 1, 2001
ISBN-10: 0783894570
ISBN-13: 978-0783894577

FINDING IAN is about Byron Frazer, a man who is easy on the mind and heart, and the eyes . . . Anyone who knew Byron in his lean college days wouldn’t recognize the confident, successful, charismatic loner he is today. He lives a double life. The public thinks he’s got everything going for him, but in private he wrestles with old guilt and doubts he’ll ever find what he wants–someone to make him complete.

When he was twenty-one, Byron became the father of a baby boy. The child was left in his care but he couldn’t look after him–mostly because there was no money. Byron gave up his son and spent the next thirteen years telling himself he’d done the right thing. But he doesn’t believe that now and probably never did.

A journey to Cornwall, England, “just to check on the boy,” turns into a face-to-face encounter with what life could become if the stars shine on Byron. He meets Jade Perron, a woman whose world is so different from Byron’s that they ought to need an interpreter, but they don’t. These two are a tornado together, in almost every way, and they become addicted to each other, but Byron’s son, Ian, could make it impossible for Byron and Jade to have a future.

Welcome back to 7 Mayfair Square, an elegant London town house where the unusual is routine.

Sibyl Smiles possesses a most unfashionable leaning toward independence. At eight and twenty, she remains unmarried, yet fostered one great desire: to be a mother. To that end, she requires…a willing gentleman. There is only one man she dares present with such an outrageous request—Hunter Lloyd, her neighbor at Number 7.

Hunter is stunned—Sibyl wants to seduce him! But now is not the time to be distracted by the woman he secretly adores. He has just successfully defended a friend of the king in a sensational trial and has been warned that his life and Sibyl’s are in jeopardy.

Although Hunter is determined to protect her from their enemies, Sibyl is equally determined to carry through with her plan—no matter what challenges come their way…
