Forced to marry Lord Aymon to ensure her young nephew’s survival, English Lady Laila vows undying hatred for the Norman she holds responsible for the deaths of so many innocents. Discovering Aymon has committed an act of treason gives her the chance to seek vengeance he deserves. But can Laila let Aymon die at the hands of the king once she learns the truth?

A hardened Norman warrior, Lord Aymon has lived through atrocities no man ever should. With the invasion of England over, all he wants is a quiet life and a wife who will give him heirs and obey his every command. Instead, he finds himself wed to feisty and outspoken Laila. But when she learns the truth of his treasonous act, can Aymon count on her to keep his secret?


Laila must raise and protect her orphaned infant nephew, but a new lord is coming and their future is uncertain.

Lord Aymon is a Norman and Laila has not had any good dealings with them and they are looking any better. He decrees that they must wed, but Laila is able to gets him to agree to certain terms to the marriage.

As their life together begins, forces and people come to conspire against them and Lord Aymon is in the center of the turmoil and is arrested for treason. Can the two of them get through this and be there for each other? Will Laila stand by her husband and show him that he is worth becoming the man he always wanted to be? Last but not least can they be the Lord and Lady that their people need? Can they make their home Tynte safe and prosperous and ensure that everyone’s future is bright?

To do that they have to find the love that they never believed was possible…together.

At first I was not sure about this book, but the more I read the more I loved it. I love how Laila and Lord Aymon came together in spite of their really big differences and prejudices. They learned about each by talking and stood together to become a family and find that love that was meant to be for them. This is a great read and a really good historical novel. Worth the read.

Katrina has one goal—follow through on her late-grandmother’s last request, to oversee the renovation of Katrina’s childhood home. The handsome contractor is distracting, but she refuses to be swayed by his deep brown eyes and broad shoulders. A summer romance is not part of the plan. When the truth is discovered about her family’s past, Katrina fears her own future is in jeopardy. She doesn’t have faith, but the twists that lie ahead may just change her mind.

Nick refuses to accept help from anyone, until Katrina gives him an ultimatum—one he can’t refuse. Her renovation project will save his business, but puts his heart on the line. Can he convince Katrina to stay or will a promise to her late-grandmother pull her away? With a little twist of Faith, the odds may be in his favor.



As the sole beneficiary of her grandmother’s will, Katrina Witherspoon finds out that she surprisingly owns property in Canada. But to honor her Gran’s last wishes she needs to renovate the house and Nick Porter must be the contractor to do the renovation. Things get interesting from the very start when Katrina contacts Nick. Sparks fly right from the beginning.

Katrina relocates temporarily for the renovations and to be near the house. Unfortunately Nick and Katrina constantly butt heads with their ideas but eventually come to an agreement over the renovations and find that they can actually work together. As the work starts and progresses, Nick and Katrina start liking each other, they find an attraction for each other.

Eventually, secrets from their past arise. Surprises in various forms, come to light for both Nick and Katrina creating a huge wedge between them that destroys their foundation and sends Katrina home, back to France, when the home is complete.

Can Katrina and Nick come to terms of their past and find their way back together when they are a world apart? Can they find the love that was meant just for them?

I was hooked on this book from the first I started reading. I knew that it was going to be good and I was right. I loved how Nick and Katrina found each other and in spite of their pasts, they finally realized that love was all they needed and that was with each other. I would love to read more of Darlene’s books.

Rory DuMont has had enough of hiding the fact that she sees ghosts. Lobster Cove is a new start and she's determined to shed the mistakes of the past. If that means she ends up alone then so be it. What she can't seem to shed is Travis Reed, Lobster Cove's resident skeptic and biology teacher. Sparks fly when the skeptic and the psychic find themselves alone together but the sparks turn into flames when a ghost takes a personal interest in them.


Rory DuMont has recently moved to Lobster Cove. She inherited her aunt’s cottage, Maison de la Mer. At a meeting of Lobster Cove Ghost Hunters Society, Rory meets Mr. Travis Reed, a local biology teacher. He is a skeptic when it comes to the paranormal. 

They both feel sparks from the first time they meet. Rory is not interested at first but as they continue to meet and become friends, they discover that they have more in common they think. 

When a ghost appears to them and some of Travis’s students, they work together to find out who the ghost is.  The want to know what happened to her and to hopefully help her move on to a more peaceful place.

I loved this book from the beginning. I could feel the sparks coming off the pages between the two of them.  I couldn't put the book down!  I had to continue to the end and find out what would happen to Rory and Travis and the ghost! 


I like the journey Travis embarks on and how he comes to believe in ghosts and yet can still be a scientist. Rory finds her love, Travis and he find her. 

I wish that this book was longer, I could have continued to read more of their romance and about their lives. I want to know about these two and what else happens to them.  A great marker for an exceptional book!

A Ghost of a Clue was totally worth the read.

Seeking to escape an abusive husband, Theodora Ravensdale answers an ad in The Times for a job as cook in a country home. A fortuitous house fire enables her to fake her own death and flee to northern England and live under an assumed name. But Theodora’s refuge is not all she would wish, when she stirs emotions in the heir to the estate, Jonathan Tenwick, and in herself.

Meanwhile, as the connection between Theodora and Jonathan grows, her husband learns she did not perish in the fire, and searches for her. Fearing he is close to finding her, Theodora must flee again to protect the family and the viscount for whom she cares deeply. In the final confrontation with her husband, Theodora learns she is stronger than she ever knew, and love is worth fighting for.


Theodora Ravensdale's time for freedom has come.  She finally has a chance to escape her abusive husband when their house catches fire. Running away, she finds work, in the country, as a cook at Jonathan Tenwick’s house. 

While working and living close together, the two of them discover that they have a spark of attraction for each other. As time goes on, it grows and blossoms into more. 

I loved this book. Theodora is a strong woman who took a chance to leave her abusive husband. To find some peace. Little did she know that she would find Jonathan, the love of her life. Jonathan was settled in his life with his family until Theodora comes into his life. 

Theodora never believed that a man could love her for herself and Jonathan never believed that he would find a love of his own. In spite of what they have both gone through they find a way to be together and find that love that they were both meant to have.

Neither Theodora or Jonathan believed that they would find a love that was meant to last a life time. I liked how they fought what they were feeling and didn't succumb right away.  But best of all in the end they would have their happy ever after. I would recommend this book.
