The laughter is BACK! And this time… it’s Elizabethan! : )
If you want a fun, funny, clever and fast-paced novel filled with…
Clever schemes, brigands and fools…
Lusty, clever ladies and wenches…
Lordly wagers and dangerous duels…
And a bit of sweet romance too…
This is the novel for you!
In the days of chivalry and romance…
…Swashbuckling rogue and determined bachelor Captain Jack Hawkins gets more than he bargains for after rescuing Lord Henry Bannigan and his two beautiful daughters when their carriage is attacked by highwaymen.
When Lord Henry asks Jack to accompany them home to ensure their safety, Jack can hardly refuse. Of course, the offer of a great reward is also enticing.
Unfortunately for Jack, the reward is not what he is expecting.
For Lord Henry has problems of his own and he intends to solve one of them by marrying one of his daughters to Jack!
Since refusing a noble lord would be unwise (to say the least) and with the young ladies’ hearts already aflutter for the charms of their silver-tongued hero, Jack finds himself trapped and fears his carefree bachelor days are in serious danger of coming to an end.
With only his wits, his wiles and the help of a lunatic serving girl to rely on…
Jack finds he must play matchmaker for the Lord Henry’s reluctant daughters and their two hopelessly inept and mismatched suitors…
Who for reasons of their own would very much like to see Jack DEAD!

Iris, the Goddess of Rainbows is about to have a bad day at the office… of Olympian proportions!
It’s not easy being a goddess. Just ask Iris.
When the adorably cheerful and enthusiastic Goddess of Rainbows goes to “head office” on Mount Olympus to ask for a promotion she learns instead that Olympus is down-sizing!
Even worse… Rainbows have been declared non-essential so now both Iris’s job and her very existence are next up on the chopping block!
Her only chance for survival?
Fight hard to earn the one job on Olympus that nobody wants… personal assistant to the most dangerous god of all time… Zeus himself.
Unfortunately for Iris, the first item on Zeus’s agenda could be the death of her… literally.
Zeus wants Iris to arrange for him to have a successful “love connection” with Valkyrie, a visiting Nordic Goddess… OR ELSE!
But then Zeus’s jealous wife Hera, the Queen of the Gods orders Iris to ruin Zeus’s fun… OR ELSE!
And most of the other gods just seem determined to be as unhelpful as divinely possible.
So what’s a poor goddess to do?
Find out as this hilariously fun and light-hearted novel chases after Iris’s efforts to stay one step ahead of all the thunderbolts… and dunderheads… that Mount Olympus can throw at her.
