Being different has always appealed to me. So when I write books, I like to twist things around. For instance, in Conquest of the Heart, set it post Conquest England, my hero is a virgin. And he is one of the conquered, not a big, brash Norman knight.

In The Shrew That Tames I took the opportunity to rewrite Shakespeare. I hated how Kate got treated in that play. She had reasons for being a shrew, but no one ever thought of her and her feelings. They just wanted her money. 
In my story, The Shrew That Tames, Katherine is a Regency heiress who has good reasons for being a shrew. She doesn't hate men. But she does want a man who isn't just after her money, one she can share her scientific and intellectual pursuits with.
I give another twist to my story by having this lovely heiress ask an impoverished fortune hunter to marry her. And she has good reasons for this, too!

What would you do for someone you love?

Would you fight to the death to save someone you love? Would you travel a thousand miles to rescue them? What makes a hero or heroine push the limits?

Sergeant Jinn Dennison seeks her identical twin sister, Julie, in the Mexican rainforest. She 'feels' that Julie is dying. The only think keeping her away from Julie is time, and Tab (Toxic) McTavish, the captain of Julie's team, Toxic Tango Troop, an elite team of soldiers whose mission it is to take down a drug lord.

Tab  thinks Jinn is Julie and a traitor to the team and gave them up to the enemy. She can't prove her innocence because she and her sister are highly classified secrets in the military. They are both psychic in the extreme. Alone, they are powerful, but together they can be deadly.

The only thing besides their natures that will set the women apart is their matching dragon tattoos on their bellies, and the love of a man. When you think of it, love and war go hand in hand. Battling hearts or soldiers still…
