The White Princess

The White Princess opens with news from the battle of Bosworth that the war is over, and a new Tudor king is to be crowned. Princess Elizabeth of York waits for word of whether the man she loves, Richard III, is alive or whether she will be forced to marry his enemy, Henry Tudor. She soon learns that her betrothal to the victorious Henry VII will go ahead. Under the guidance of her mother, Elizabeth Woodville, the young princess marries Henry VII and is charged to create a new royal family, one that will finally bring the houses of York and Tudor together. But, while the new monarchy has won the war, it cannot win over the hearts of the English people who still remember the House of York with love and desperately hope for the resurgence of a York prince. King Henry’s greatest fear is realised when a prince from the House of York invades England and attempts to reclaim the throne, leaving Elizabeth with the decision to either affirm his claim or stand by her husband, whom she is growing to love.

Available in hardback where all good books are sold for $37.00.  Also available as an ebook for $21.99.

Thornwood House

When Audrey Kepler inherits an abandoned homestead in rural Queensland she jumps at the chance to escape her loveless existence in the city and make a fresh start. In a dim back room of the old house she discovers the crumbling photo of a handsome World War II soldier – Samuel Riordan, the homestead’s former occupant – and soon finds herself becoming obsessed with him. But as Samuel’s story unravels, Audrey discovers that he was accused of killing a young Aboriginal woman upon his return from the war in 1944. When she learns that other unexplained deaths have occurred in recent years – one of them a young woman with injuries echoing those of the 1944 victim – she begins to suspect that the killer is still very much alive. And now Audrey – thanks to her obsessive need to uncover the past – has provided him with good reason to want to kill again.

Available in paperback where all good books are sold for $24.99.  Also available as an ebook for $13.99.

Sinister Intent

From former police detective Karen M Davis comes a fast-paced thriller, with characters you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley and a plotline that will keep you guessing until the last page. For eight years Lexie Rogers has been a uniform cop in Sydney’s red light district, King’s Cross. Having survived a violent knife attack she’s now back at work as the newest member of the Bondi Junction detectives’ office, and one of her first jobs is to execute a search warrant at a bikie clubhouse. What she uncovers there begins a chilling investigation into a vicious world where loyalty is deadly and unwavering and can’t be bought…or can it?
