At nineteen, Lady Lydia Markham was beautiful, bookish and naive. Her sheltered, loveless upbringing had not educated her in the ways of the beau monde, or the men who inhabited it. So when she met Nathaniel, Lord Fairmont, it was all too easy to be swept away by his rakish charm and good looks. She was devastated when he did not propose marriage, but joined Wellington's army instead. Six years of battle has changed Nathaniel: older, wiser, the conqueror of the addictions that drove his misspent youth, he's avowed to start afresh. But a chance meeting with Lydia unnerves him; she is so very keen to speak to him, yet he cannot fathom why. Has she waited for him all these years? He is unfit for her and is focused on making amends for another's life that he ruined, and he urges her to forget him. Nathaniel's indifference leaves Lydia heartbroken, but she reaffirms her vow to begin anew. Unfortunately, she needs Nathaniel's assistance. If ensuring his aid means following him to the Continent, where he's gone to fight Napoleon with the Household Guards, then so be it. But will he help once he knows her secret?

This teen fantasy romance contains strong emotions, some kissing, but no sex. ..".a story that girls and women of all ages can love ... a magical world you want to explore even after this story has ended." -Bestselling Author, Suzanne Ferrell, 5 stars *Diary of a Teenage Fairy Godmother* A Fairy Godmother is not some overgrown pixie in a pink tutu. She's a guardian and a warrior specially trained to protect Cinderella's descendants. Lilliana Skye is undercover at a Texas high school on her first assignment to save one of Cinderella's troubled great-granddaughters. But everything goes terribly wrong. Who wouldn't want their very own Fairy Godmother? Jess Harrison, that's who. She doesn't believe in fairytale magic or happily-ever-afters. The death of her oldest brother nuked her world. Grief sucks. Jess is tough, angry, and so intelligent it's scary. If she ever did see a mythical fairy she would probably stomp it into oblivion with her army boots. Fortunately Jess has another brother, but when Jake meets the new girl he falls hard. In Jess's universe that means trouble. Her shields go up. Code red. Weapons loaded. Their oldest brother's tragic accident turned Jess and Jake's parents into emotional zombies. They avoided grieving and buried themselves in work. Jake is the only real family Jess really has left and she's fiercely protective. She can't let her brother fall in love with a dangerous lunatic who claims to be a Fairy Godmother. That's fine with Lilliana. Falling in love with a human is forbidden, not to mention ... deadly. And maybe, just maybe, if she didn't have to protect Jake and Jess she might be able to keep her wayward heart in check. But someone from the fairy realm is trying to kill all three of them and Lilliana has to find out why before it's too late. _"I was hooked.
