Stone Dreaming Woman - Just Released

Jenny Weston, daughter of a prominent NYC neurosurgeon, sacrificed everything to graduate from medical school at the top of her class in 1910.  Even so, no hospital will hire a woman doctor, and no private practice will let her buy in.  She decides to rethink her possibilities by visiting her uncle in rural Ontario.

Sergeant Shane Adair of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police ignores her until he recognizes her healing abilities. Meanwhile, he reminds her of every man who has ever patronized her. It is mutual dislike until, desperate, he asks her to aid a gravely injured boy.

 With Shane's help, Jenny joins the local doctor's practice, and a tentative love blossoms.  Her world has finally fallen into place--until her father arrives and demands she return to New York.  Suddenly she is up against the hardest battle she has ever fought. Will she win?  And at what cost?

A Highlander in Her past - Just Released

How bad could one little spell be?

Trish Sullivan, archeologist and favorite aunt to the MacKay children, never thought she'd regret those words until Ramsay, the eldest MacKay lad, hurls them back to the 1400s with a botched transportation spell. Now she and Ramsay must find a way back before accidentally altering the past and unknowingly changing the future. That is, if Trish can survive the first trip across time without losing her life...or her heart.

What harm could come from a little soul-binding?

Proving his Highland honor alive and well, Maxwell Sullivan agrees to bind his soul to Trish's in order to save her life. But Highland honor isn't much help when Maxwell loses his heart in the bargain to the sassy woman headed back to the future.

And He Cooks Too

by: Barbara Barrett

    Three men, three lies. One thought it was for her own good, one did it for his own good, and the third nearly destroyed her career. Blacklisted by the city's finest restaurants, Chef Reese Dunbar must now put the resuscitation of her battered reputation in the hands of yet another man. The television experience Nick Coltrane's cooking show offers is her best option for restoring her name and becoming the Big Apple's super chef. But after giving her body and heart to him, her trust is put to the test when she discovers that Nick has lied about the real reason he brought her on board, and worse yet, Nick can't cook.

"I checked you out before I accepted this job."
"You knew?" he asked, his voice catching.
She gave him a Mona Lisa type smile. "I do my research, Nick."
The spicy beef dish he'd just consumed seemed to congeal in his stomach. Had she checked out his cooking credentials also?
"I can see you on the stage." She laughed. "Maybe more than behind the stove."
Lady, you don't know how right you are. "Ah, well, cooking's my new love."
"Where did you do your training? The Internet didn't mention that."
Great. She had him. The only way he could think of to deflect this conversation was to play dumb. "Huh?"
She leaned in, revealing more decolletage. "Cooking school. Which one did you attend?"
He struggled to come up with a response, but his mind was elsewhere. Mesmerized, he watched as she played a finger around the rim of her margarita glass, picking up stray salt particles. How was a guy supposed to think up a plausible story to explain his origins when his brain was otherwise engaged?
She touched her fingertip to her lips. Nick couldn't speak. His eyes locked on her lips as other parts of his anatomy were unlocked. Was she coming on to him?

Book Three
Missy Modesto had it all: a successful business, two fabulous kids, and a twenty-seven-year marriage to her high school sweetheart. But when too many arguments left them unable to compromise, she and Vinnie separated. Now, nine months later, their daughter is getting married and wants Missy to plan the wedding.
Vinnie Modesto is trying to put his life back together. He keeps in touch with his kids and is building his business to its full potential--something he should have done before the only woman he ever loved ended their marriage.
Missy dreads seeing Vinnie again, but when he arrives, eager to help with the wedding and offering solutions to every problem, Missy isn't sure what to think. Can she believe in the new man he's become during their separation? Or is this just another in a long line of Vinnie's empty promises?

"I need the parking permit you obtained from the town."
She froze. Oh, no. Vinnie said he'd take care of that. Missy pulled her cell from her back pocket. Raising her finger to Antoine, she walked across the living room. "One minute, please."
"Vinnie Modesto."
Not bothering with amenities, she demanded, "What did you do with the parking permit?"
"Oh yeah, about that. There was a small problem."
Rage erupted. "What problem? How long have you known about this small problem? And why didn't you tell me before now?" The electric drill from the living room made her head bang.
Jerk. Same old Vinnie. Making promises he couldn't keep. Well, she's had his crap up to her eyeballs, which, by the way, felt like they were ready to pop out of her already pounding head.
"The papers I submitted got misplaced," he murmured in that superior male patronizing tone, which only pissed her off even more.
"When I called to check on the progress, the clerk claimed she didn't know anything about it so I refiled the request. Relax. They told me to come down today and assured me it would be ready."
"Antoine needs it now, Vincent."
His voice rose to dangerous levels. "Tell Antoine I'll get it to him!"
Just like old times Vinnie screaming; her yelling back. "Don't you dare yell at me! I never could depend on you! Why I gave you something as important as this is beyond me!"
