Julia Bernay has come to London to become a doctor—a glorious new opportunity for women during the reign of Victoria. When she witnesses a serious accident, her quick actions save the life of barrister Michael Stephenson. He rose above his family’s stigma, but can he rise to the challenge of the fiercely independent woman who has swept into his life?

Tales of the Past . . . and of New Beginnings

Welcome! If you enjoy inspiring stories filled with history and romance, you're in the right place. My books are set in Victorian England, a fascinating time and place, when new inventions and opportunities were greatly changing the world as people knew it. I wrote more about this setting on my Extras page. You'll always get a taste of actual historical events in my novels—not to mention the occasional "cameo" appearance from famous people of the time.

Love is always a grand adventure, and I hope you will find my books entertaining, exciting, and inspiring.
