Elizabethan England:

Handsome. Charming. Devastating. He was the last man she needed, but the only one she wanted.

Orlando Holt has never assassinated a woman before. The lovely, feisty Lady Lynden will be his first. She's supposed to be a vicious murderess, but when Orlando begins to have doubts, he sets out to discover the identity of the person who hired him. What he learns will turn his world upside down, and propel him headlong into love with a woman who's immune to his charms.

Twice widowed by the age of twenty-four, Lady Susanna Lynden has had enough of charming men. Her last husband knew all the right things to say to get her to the marriage bed…then made her life miserable. Money may be scarce and her house falling down around her, but the exotic fruit from her orange trees will keep poverty away. Except someone is thwarting her at every turn. Someone who may even want her dead.

This book is also available for purchase in THE ASSASSINS GUILD boxed set the complete set of the 4-book series. 


We all know a charming man, right? The one who's too good looking for his own good. The one who needs to be brought down a peg or two. I've always wanted to see how these guys handle meeting that one woman who doesn't succumb to their charms. That's why I wrote Orlando, the hero in THE CHARMER. He can have any woman he wants - until he meets Susanna. Pairing these two characters was so much fun, and I hope you'll enjoy their story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

    I'm not a fan of suspense but this book had me reading past my bedtime to find out what was happening. Wonderfully sweet love story with a bit of suspense thrown in.

    Very good read! Good story, plot, and characters… easy to follow and fast paced. No misspellings, or garbled sentences. I would recommend this book highly.
