Gothic Romantic Suspense
A psychiatric nurse hopes to leave her disastrous past behind by taking a position as a caretaker for a troubled young woman on Vancouver Island. She never dreams she’s placed herself in terrible danger.
Curse of Black Tor
Jane Toombs, the Viking from her past, and their calico grandcat, Kinko, live across the road from the south shore of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula wilderness, enjoying three marvelous seasons and one barely tolerable one. Jane has left the NY markets behind for e-publishing and is happy with her choice. Including stand-alone novellas with her novels, she’s almost reached ninety books and may retire when she reaches one hundred. On the other hand, maybe not…
