Book 1
Treachery, heartache, and loneliness led Ella Kühn to take her first drink of alcohol ten years ago. When the delusions begin, images from her past threaten to challenge her state of mind. Ironically, the very thing that haunts her, is the thing that has kept her alive—the butterfly tattoo covering the gunshot wound to her right shoulder. It’s physical and emotional reminder not only symbolizes her courage, but also signifies Stefan’s absence . . . which now spans twelve years.












Book 2
It’s 1983 in the Deutsch Democratic Republic. Trust remains a fragile ally as the Communist Bloc begins to crumble. Ella’s involvement in the rising opposition and underground punk movement, puts her more at risk than any escape plan ever could. She is followed, watched and hunted . . .  but by whom? An old enemy? The Secret Police? Or her new employer?







Book 3
In Release, the third and final installment of the Berlin Butterfly Series, Ella battles her inner demons as she struggles to survive the ever-growing darkness in the East. Will she regain her former strength and find a way to flee to the thinning borders of Czechoslovakia and join Anton and Josef? Or will ties to her precarious past keep her bound—her only release found in the freedom of pain and guilt while embracing life without her family in East Berlin?



Snippet from Release:

Startinearly huh, lass?The barmans foreign accent did not hold back his sarcasm. My glare answered for me. Rachmaninoff okay?
I nodded. As he poured, the liquid flowed smoothly, and when it settled, it appeared like solid glass, no fizzes or foam. I scanned the surface, laden and tempting, imagining the relief provided as it passed my lips and slithered down my anxious throat. I stared.
I thought of Mari, how she needed me nowhow we actually needed each other. What will she say? 
Its only one drink. I can handle one drink . . . cant I?
Will she be disappointed in me if she knows?
She may already be when she finds out I lost my position at Zur.
Is there a problem?The barman stood in front of me.
I shook my head.
Do you want a different one?
No,I snapped. He quickly retreated.
As I ran my tongue across my parched lips, the desire to bring the drink to my mouth brought a familiar yearning to my bosom. My hands cupped the glass. No one will know.

Publication Date: October 21, 2014
About the Book

Kendra, the Mistress of Water, finds herself sinking within an ocean of heartbreak as Destiny lands her once again on the Isle of Serey. Nothing is going right—from her awareness to the island’s most prominent Nysein womanizer to the desire he shimmies over body. She can’t fight the pull he has on her, but she suspects he’s tipping more than smooth banter with one of her sisters. Jealousy slashes the darkest recesses of her heart, yet she’s tired of waiting for him. Either he’ll give her what she wants, or she’ll finally walk away…

Maxim Korden, seneschal to King Darién, has always loved the female sex. The scent, texture, and visual stimulation of beautiful woman makes him crazy with need. However, he carries a deep secret—one impossible to believe. For nearly one hundred years, he can’t touch a woman without sickness, though one caress upon Kendra’s skin and the sweetest nirvana engulfs him. Fate has tilted a deadly trial against their brief happiness as a sinister force traps his newfound love.

excerpt

Movie over and wine gone I’m cuddled against Kaleb’s chest, but nerves take over. “Should I get the dessert?” I pop up before he can answer.

I’ve anticipated a heavy make-out session, but am suddenly chicken. Throughout the movie he rubbed my back, and his fingers flirted with the bare skin at my waist. My body simmers right now, but my head freaks out. I’ve only been with one guy. It was good for a while, and then it wasn’t. What if being with Kaleb brings on a panic attack?

What if he thinks…No. Normal guys aren’t like that.

I take a deep breath and open the dessert box. Releasing a big sigh I sense Kaleb near me. His palms land gently on my shoulders. “Lori, I’m nervous, too.”

I turn to him. “You are? Why?”

“Let’s see. Well, what if all I am is a good kisser? What if I touch the wrong places, or you don’t like my body, or I’m too sweaty or—”

I put my fingers on his lips. “You’re adorable. Okay, here it is. I’ve only been with one other guy and it didn’t end well. I don’t…” Damn it. “I wasn’t very good at it.”

“My last girlfriend didn’t think I was very good at it, either. We can be dorks together. Okay?” He leans down and kisses my neck lightly. I welcome the shiver it causes and thread my fingers through his hair.

He whispers and his hot breath teases me. “I’m in no hurry. We can take all the time you need.” He moves his lips to my mouth and kisses gently. He waits for me to take the lead.

I nibble on his lower lip and slide my tongue into his mouth. Meeting me, we gently caress each other until he pulls away and says, “Let’s do dessert.”

He slides a piece of dense chocolate cake onto the plate I set out. “I won’t eat more than a couple bites, so why don’t you keep the other for tomorrow?” It wasn’t a question though, because he closes the lid and puts it in the refrigerator.

I grab the plate along with two forks and lead the way to the couch. I sit with a leg tucked under me. He takes a fork and lowers himself onto the sofa. “I think you’ll like this.”

I put a bite into my mouth and hold it on my tongue. Espresso-infused chocolate flavor spreads in my mouth. “Ummmm.” I close my eyes and swallow the lump slowly. “Oh yeah, that’s good.”

He chuckles softly. “Now to get you to say that about me.”

With my next bite I tilt my head and remove the fork coyly. “I hope you say it about me.”

Feeling brave, I stick a finger in the thick cream and raise it to his mouth. He sucks it and rolls his tongue around the cream. My eyelids drop as the sensation travels to my core.

I set the plate on the coffee table and swipe a little more cream. Leaning up on my knee, I put my finger in his mouth and my other hand on his shoulder. I’m inches from his face. I lick my lips and when he nips at my hand I crush him with a kiss.

This time it isn’t sweet. It’s hot and sexy, and a low sound escapes my throat. I release my grip on the firm muscles of his arms and move my hands over to his chest. My goodness, he’s ripped. Ridges so defined, I use my fingers to trail the edges of his pectorals and bump over his abs. I fiddle with the bottom of his shirt, wanting to take it off and touch his skin. Reaching under it, I let my hands make their way back up.

He grips my shoulder blades and breaks away with a low groan. “Should I take my shirt off?”

I nod and bite my lip. He reveals what my hands already know. Light hair disappears by his nipples and reappears in a line below his navel. “Not too sweaty, nice body.” I raise my eyebrows at him. “Ummm, this is good.”
