Dear Reader:Lord Harry, one of my first novels, was originally titled Lord Harry's Folly. I've rewritten the story extensively, adding to and changing dialogue, actions, and descriptions, yet the original plot is still here. I'm convinced-and I'm sure you will be too-that the characters are much happier now that they've lived with me for fifteen years and taught me more about themselves.Lord Harry is really Henrietta Rolland, a young aldy who assumed the guise if a gentleman to track down and kill Jason Cavander, the marquess of Oberlon, the man she believes responsible for her brother Damien's death at the Battle of Waterloo. She wants to challenge him to a duel. When he's lying at her feet, then and only then will she tell him why she's killed him, and who she really is. Unfortunately, there's a really big snag.You will laugh at Lord Harry's outrageous adventures. Together, Jason and Henrietta Rolland will touch you-they did me and still continue to do so. Do let me know what you think of my rewrite. Enjoy!

Look at this picture. Tell me what you see… The American South is rife with stories of a haunted past—especially its houses. In this eclectic and impressive collection, thirteen novelists were asked to build their tales around the photo of a dilapidated mansion. They were given two requirements—the house must appear in the story, and it should be a Southern Gothic tale. And they delivered. From childish demons to a mad novelist, from the Mississippi delta to the Appalachians, this collection from emerging voices and New York Times bestselling authors explores what happens when secrets that lie beneath the dust are disturbed—and our worst nightmares begin. Darkness lurks behind every corner, especially dead ends.
In the midst of the wind, rain and snow of a massive storm, Rockford homicide detective M.C. Riggio, FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell and Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson find themselves fighting not just the elements but three diabolical killers.
