Lady Trent must rely on her newfound faith to solve the mystery . . . and save herself.

In London, 1858, women of British nobility are being murdered with alarming frequency, so Scotland Yard calls on Lady Serafina Trent and her crime-solving partner, Dylan Tremayne, to help piece together the perplexing clues. With Dylan's help, Serafina has garnered acclaim as a brilliant detective--solving mysteries by relying on her astute observation and scientific reasoning.

But in the midst of solving these crimes, Serafina's relationship with Dylan meets unexpected stress when his childhood sweetheart returns. Torn between desire and decorum, Serafina desperately wants Dylan to be happy--but in the arms of another woman?

After a lifetime of viewing the world through a practical lens, Serafina begins to examine her own soul--and realizes her need for Jesus. Yet will her faith save her life when all clues point to Serafina as the murderer's next victim?

A Lady Like Sarah (A Rocky Creek Romance, #1)

She's an outlaw. He's a preacher. Both are in need of a miracle.

When Preacher JUSTIN WELLS promises an injured lawman to take his prisoner to Texas, Justin has no idea the trouble that lies ahead. The slightly-built prisoner turns out to be SARAH PRESCOTT, sister of the notorious Prescott brothers--and she's determined to miss the hanging party waiting for her in Texas.

But escaping proves to be tougher than she thought. Justin doesn't own a gun and hasn't the foggiest idea how to survive the wilderness. How can she leave him alone with the injured marshal?

Nothing is more sacred to Justin than a promise made to a dying man, but he can't bring himself to turn the blue-eyed beauty over to the hangmen. She's tough as leather, but there's something about her that is pure and good.

Justin can't bear to lose her, but how can a simple preacher fight an entire town? And how can either one of them know that miracles come in many guises…including love?
