Queen of Hearts & Killing Time

Thank you so much to all the faithful readers of my blog. I appreciate you so much.

Queen of Hearts
Daphne Dean is proud to be serving her country stateside during WWII as a reporter and an Office of Strategic Services operative. When the photograph she takes of the crowd at a murder scene places her on the mob's hit list, she's forced into hiding in a vacant mental asylum in the middle of nowhere with terrifying secrets of its own.
Daphne believed herself to still be in love with her ex-fiancée, Kenneth, until she spends several days locked away in the asylum with Vito, the mob boss' son. Can she put the terrifying events that occurred there behind her and allow herself to pursue a relationship with Vito? Or, will she return to Kenneth who has turned his back on his country by becoming a draft dodger and a black market racketeer? One thing's for sure, it won't matter if she can't escape the mental institution alive.

Killing Time
Mindy McLaurin, thinks it's the end of the world when she's incarcerated on trumped-up embezzlement charges. While in jail, she investigates the death of an inmate who allegedly died of an overdose. Mindy suspects foul play when her cellmate dies and she learns that both women had ingested the same drug. Mindy trusts no one, including Drew Stone, the handsome counselor she can’t stop thinking about. She faces many challenges, including constant interrogation by the Major and emotional abuse from the other inmates. Upon release, someone is stalking her and framing her for the murder. Can she prove to Counselor Stone that she’s innocent of all charges before she loses him forever?


  1. Killing Time sounds like an intriguing read. Thanks for sharing your books to win, put me in.

  2. i would like to win Queen of Hearts because i like the story line of a reporter and an operative. i'd like to find out if how she spends her days in the asylum, and what secrets it hides! Thankyou for giving me a chance to win it! But then, Killing Time sounds great too, with the setting of the jail, and trumped-up charges. i wouldn't turn this one down either, if i won it. again, thankyou for the chance. mitzi_wanham[at]yaoo]dot]com
