She set out to expose his true nature, but the secrets revealed were her own…

Paris, 1871. In the aftermath of war and revolution, cavalry officer Olivier Valencourt, the comte de Chaumenay, only wants peace. But his discovery of his deceased brother’s child in a Montmartre hovel leads to a battle of wills with the lovely but evasive American struggling to provide for him. Determined to gain custody of his nephew, Olivier sets out to win the audacious bohemian’s trust with patronage and patience, but her courage, wisdom, and innocent sensuality divert his agenda.

Painter Jeanne Delancy has good reason to despise the portrait-worthy count before she ever meets him. She believes he’s the man who seduced and deserted her friend long ago. Unfortunately, the talented and persuasive Olivier is hard to dislike or resist in person.

Conflicted by loyalty to her missing friend and her duty to the abandoned six-year-old she’s vowed to protect, Jeanne feels obligated to give the war hero the opportunity to prove he’s worthy of knowing his son. But the independent woman who thinks herself immune to temptation underestimates Olivier in many ways and reveals far more than she ever anticipates. While the strong-willed opposites struggle to reconcile their deepest longings, dangerous alliances and scandalous secrets threaten a tragic repetition of history.

What they’re saying:

“What a great read! I am an avid reader of this genre and many others. Greenfield’s book contains steamy scenes between well-developed characters against the backdrop of post-revolutionary France. It is the perfect balance of loving and learning. I have read many novels that are full of cliches and this book has none of them! It is a unique story and one that will stay with you after you (sadly) finish it.” (by An Avid Reader, Amazon review)

A psychological spy thriller set in 1960 in the quiet South American  capital of Montevideo, Uruguay an unconventional distant posting at the  height of the Cold War. The city is at first glance an unassuming  battleground: the Rio de la Plata lapping at its shores, cobblestone  streets lined with narrow buildings decorated with filigree ironwork,  and overall a distinct colonial feel, but also with a palpable old  European influence. At the center of the intrigue are two Cold War  intelligence officers, a British MI6 officer, and the Soviet KGB  Rezident. Both are seasoned operatives in the shadowy clandestine world  of spies. Outwardly, the two are enemies but the Britisher is not what  he seems. He has close secret ties to the Rezident who recruited him  years ago in Belgium as a double agent. The intricate chilling details  of the eventual betrayal of the MI6 officer as his life and work  suddenly unravel ends climactically in faraway Moscow.

At the request of an old lover, Keegan Shaw keeps an  appointment on a south Florida beach with Sunni Russell, a locally famous  businesswoman. Sunni wants to know who her birth father is and has been told  Keegan can be trusted and has a talent for sorting out secrets. She hires Keegan  to follow her mother to London, to keep her eyes open and her mouth shut, and to  report back.

Mrs. Russell, an ex-hippie who lives her life according to psychics, has kept  Sunni’s father a secret for 47 years. And despite the old saying, “If you can  remember London in the Sixties, you weren’t there,” Abby Russell remembers it  all: miniskirts, pot, free love, LSD, Carnaby Street, the Stones. But instead of  the warm, fuzzy buzz of nostalgia, she is haunted by the unsolved 1966 murder of  her flatmate, Susan Miachi.

Against Sunni’s instructions, Keegan befriends Mrs. Russell on the flight  over. Together they explore London’s post-recession art world and everyone who  has an interest in a particular posh West End gallery, including the  single-minded gallery owner, his aging ex-boyfriend, his bitter ex-wife, his hot  young girlfriend, his even hotter son, and an old writer friend.

Keegan realizes that some aren’t who they pretend to be and one is not quite  finished with murder.

What they’re saying about it:

Almost on a lark, Floridian freelance photojournalist Keegan  takes on a sleuthing assignment and finds her subject more complicated than  expected. Abby’s daughter, Sunni, has asked Keegan to follow Abby to London.  Secretive about her past, Abby has been acting suspiciously and Sunni thinks  London might be where her birth father lives. Believing she’s on a paternity  hunt, Keegan soon learns that Abby was party to an unsolved murder that claimed  her roommate’s life back in 1966. Abby might be seeking closure for a terrible  chapter in her life, but now someone else wants to eliminate her entirely.  Keegan is caught up in a swirling scene of jealousy, long-simmering hatred, and  folks on the run. VERDICT One woman’s  search for her past threatens those who were left behind. Robson’s effective use  of twists and turns is nicely paced and introduces an engaging protagonist with  plenty of her own skeletons in the closet to explore. More Keegan, please.”

AN UPLIFTING TRUE STORY OF LOVE

Losing loved ones is an awful fact of life; losing one’s loving spouse, one’s day-to-day partner through life, especially in the prime of life, is one of the most unbearable tolls that we humans are forced to endure. This is the true story of my journey from grieving widower, not caring if I lived or died, to the once-again happily married man I am today, a man who both loves and cherishes life.  My three kitties have given me a new zest for living.

Both inspiring and entertaining, my story might just make you laugh at times, or bring a tear to your eye, as you journey along with me.

What they’re saying about it:

“This has a great feeling to it and is inspiring as well as entertaining. It reminded me much more of dog books such as “Marley and Me” (sorry, I have not read a similar cat book yet) than of cancer / loss/ self help books, but it should fit wonderfully in either category.”

“This story will touch you, and you’ll be telling your friends about it long after you’ve finished….Please buy this book and absorb it into your own life’s experience. It will make you a stronger person.”- T.R Harris, bestselling author of THE HUMAN CHRONICLES SAGA.

“It is one of the most moving books I’ve ever read. I cried very hard in the early part and rejoiced with the author through the rest.” -Nick Russell, bestselling author of the BIG LAKE series
