I segreti di un lord
Inghilterra, 1819 - Quando l'uomo di cui è innamorata si fidanza con un'altra, Henrietta, avida lettrice di romanzi gotici, ordisce un piano per riprenderselo: trasformare il vicino di casa in un eroe dal fascino maledetto capace di portare scompiglio nella coppia che si è appena formata. Il prescelto, però, Thomas, Conte di Kesseley, non è certo la persona più adatta! Appassionato di agricoltura e del tutto privo di fascino, è l'esatto contrario del bel tenebroso in cui lei vuole trasformarlo. Ma poi, pur essendo inizialmente restio a calarsi nel ruolo, Kesseley porta alla luce un aspetto oscuro e trasgressivo di sé. Ed Henrietta finisce per diventare vittima delle sue stesse macchinazioni...
Rakes and Radishes
When Henrietta Watson learns that the man she loves plans to marry London's most beautiful and fashionable debutante, she plots to win him back. She'll give him some competition by transforming her boring bumpkin neighbor, the Earl of Kesseley, into a rakish gothic hero worthy of this Season's Diamond.
After years of unrequited love for Henrietta, Kesseley is resigned to go along with her plan and woo himself a willing bride. But once in London, everything changes. Kesseley, long more concerned with his land than his title, discovers that he's interested in sowing wild oats as well as radishes. And Henrietta realizes that gothic heroes don't make ideal husbands. Despite an explosive kiss that opens her eyes to the love that's been in front of her all along, Henrietta must face the possibility that Kesseley is no longer looking to marry at all.

The Homemaker - A Southern Short Story
Author's note: For a time in my childhood, we lived in a tiny town in South Georgia. Across from the post office, an old Victorian home was situated among pecan trees. I was fascinated by the house and often walked its perimeter and peered in the windows. I daydreamed of fixing it up. Unfortunately, after decades of neglect, the old house was demolished. Yet, the old place held such a firm place in my heart that I wrote a story about its restoration. So while the characters and locations in this book are figments of my overactive imagination, the house was once very real.
