“The Tender Touch of Night” is a stand-alone novel in the Belle House series.
Maude Daly, better known as ‘Ginger’ among the clients of the Belle House, is used to fine clothes and luxurious lifestyle. But what a woman wouldn’t do for love! On a mission to rescue her lover from a gambling debt, young beautiful Ginger ventures into the worst slums of Victorian London. A string of unfortunate events, and she finds herself in the den of a notorious street gang and the king of the underworld himself—Frank Handley.
Frank ‘Lucky’ Handley grew up on the streets. An orphan, a ruthless fighter, a criminal, and an unsung hero of the slums. To him, the slums are his Holy Grail, money is a commodity, and so are women. So the day Ginger falls into his arms, he decides to use her connections with her rich clients to his advantage. And, well, he wouldn’t be Frank Handley if he didn’t toy with such an elegant creature from the luxury brothel on Piccadilly.
So begins the game of cat and mouse.
But Ginger’s games are gentle and take Lucky by surprise, setting his thoughts on fire. Lucky’s games are dangerous. And there is someone in the shadows, waiting for him to make a mistake.
Twists, turns, revenge, and plenty of steamy scenes in Book 2 of the Belle House series.

Elayne MacNally knew one thing for certain: Her reputation as the willful harpy of the highlands was well earned.
As the spoiled daughter of the successful Laird MacNally, Elayne got whatever she wanted, until the man she thought she would wed rejected her. Dejected and reconsidering her lot in life, her father comes up with an opportunity that could change the course of her life and perhaps her reputation as well.
Declan MacCollough also knew one thing for certain: He did not want to follow in his father’s footsteps as Laird of the reputed “Beast Clan.”
Following his father’s death, Declan had a lot of work ahead of him to reclaim any sense of respect for his people. Families had fled; fathers would not permit their daughters to wed into the clan. Declan wanted, more than anything, to recreate his clan into one deserving of service to the King. The first step Declan must take is to find a wife with enough backbone to help him tame his clan, help it grow, and gain back respect.
Learning of Elayne and her reputation, Declan offers to wed the lass – an arranged marriage of sorts. With no other choices open to her, Elayne decides that the Laird of the Beast Clan is her best, if only, option.
What happens when she arrives is a strange and passionate meeting of the minds between herself and Declan. Playing on each other’s strengths, they maneuver around those who attempt to prevent the marriage as a play for power. However, Declan’s past affiliations with the King are not welcome by all, and the challenges to their marriage become the least of their worries.
Can Declan and Elayne trust each other enough to face the threats to the MacCollough clan and their very lives?
