Romance and non-fiction author Michelle McLean grew up in California and has lived everywhere from the deserts of Utah to the tropical beaches of Hawaii to the gorgeous forests of the east coast. Michelle spent 98% of her formative years with her nose in a book indulging in her love of reading and research. Michelle has a B.S. in History, a M.A. in English, and tends to be a bit of an organized mess with an insatiable love of books and more weird quirks than you can shake a stick at.
If she’s not editing, reading or chasing her kids around, she can usually be found in a quiet corner working on her next book. Michelle resides in PA with her husband and two young children, an insanely hyper dog, and two very spoiled cats. You can find her on her website, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and on the Operation Awesome blog, The Naked Hero, Oven Mitts and Other Bits, and of course here at Scene 13.
Minuette Sinclair thought her biggest problem was getting out of her aunt’s finishing school as a proper Victorian lady. But now she’s pretending to be engaged and her fake fiancé is in debt up to his neck. What’s more, her father is in a Caribbean jail, falsely accused of murder. A legendary lost necklace might be their salvation and Min is determined to find it.
But master thief Bryant Westley is after the necklace too and has every intention of seducing his quirky and beautiful competition. He offers to partner up in the search – even though Min is a distraction he can’t afford. Min can’t refuse Bryant’s offer either – even when she realizes she’s fallen in love with Bryant. Bryant fears he can’t double cross the young lady he’s come to love. Can they find the necklace together and admit their love before it’s too late?
It’s 1856 and the prospectors have mostly abandoned the once prosperous gold mining town of Bethany Ridge, California. Now the town is under siege by a crooked sheriff and his posse.

When handsome Leo Forrester comes looking for Blood Blade’s help, he ends up on the wrong side of Blood Blade’s pistol. But when he discovers the renegade is really the feisty Cilla, he decides to do what he can to help. The more time he spends with Cilla, the more determined Leo is to steal her stubborn bandit’s heart.
Then innocent people are murdered and the sheriff fixes to pin the deaths on Blood Blade. Leo must convince Cilla of his love and the town of her innocence or the jig will be up and she’ll be swinging from a hangman’s noose come dawn.

Not your proper Southern gentleman…
Finn Taggart is bad news. His dark and tortured past always catches up to him, and Lucy deserves better than to be tainted by his touch. He couldn’t have her years ago, and he can’t have her now, no matter how enticing she is. If only he can convince her of that before the danger that follows him brings them both down.
Not your classic love story…
Danger doesn’t exactly scare a girl like Lucy, and she knows how to use all kinds of weapons… including her feminine wiles. Finn doesn’t stand a chance. And if they need backup… the Blood Blade Sisters are never far away…
