Historical Romance

On the run from her controlling brother and a life of privilege, Amanda Collingsworth stumbles across three children abandoned by their nursemaid. She rescues them and poses as their mother to avoid capture by the detectives her brother hired.

When the nursemaid arrives with the children, she is not the woman he expected. Although beautiful, she can’t cook, clean, or wash, and worse, she believes in a fairy tale life which includes love and marriage.

While living under the same roof to care for the children, Amanda is attracted to Jake who can be protective and charming, but she discovers he doesn’t believe in love, only lust. As her feelings for him grow, her body craves his touch, but can she ever hope to win his heart?

Take Me To Paradise
by Marilyn Yarbrough
Historical Romance published May 17, 2013

Cassie Tyler is traveling to Paradise to visit her aunt, but when she arrives in Sacramento, she learns her life may be in danger. Reluctantly, she agrees to have a bodyguard travel with her on the stagecoach for her protection.

Mitch Hardin is a former Confederate soldier with a hidden past. He accompanies Cassie to Paradise, but she seems more concerned with guarding her reputation than she is with guarding her life. He must fight her as well as kidnappers to keep her safe.

Cassie is dragged off the stage at gunpoint. Mitch tracks down the outlaws and rescues her, but he uncovers a more devious plot. Cassie and Mitch are thrust into danger—and into each other’s arms.

Payton's Woman
by Marilyn Yarbrough
Historical Romance published April 24, 2013

Julia Anderson is on a perilous quest to find the man who murdered her brother. Hot on the killer's trail, she stumbles into the arms of a man who resembles a fearsome pirate straight out of her childhood nightmares. But when this dark haired, blue-eyed pirate kisses her, the only thing he steals is her heart.

Captain Payton Tyler is on his own quest. He's distracted from his goal when an innocent, blond-haired beauty materializes out of the misty fog. When she disappears just as suddenly, he follows after her.

From the hellhole of the Barbary Coast to the refined society of old Sacramento, danger and intrigue thrust Julia and Payton together--and into each other's arms. As their desire for each other grows, so does Julia's suspicion. She fears the man who holds her in his arms, the man who holds her heart, may also be the man who killed her brother.

Black Ravens Review:
Marilyn Yarbrough had me enthralled from beginning to end in Payton's Woman. I fell in love with the Captain and his charms. In addition, Marilyn Yarbrough did an awesome job in this book of making me applaud her imagination throughout the story. Moreover, the passionate scenes between Captain Payton and Julia definitely blew my mind away. Captain Payton is a man no woman can resist.
Payton's Woman by Marilyn Yarbrough is highly recommended by this reviewer to any reader who loves a pirate and the roguish tactics he uses to make a sensible woman go wild with passion.
Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by Lena!

Shadow Warrior

My newest novel Shadow Warrior has been published. This is the third novel in the Shadow Series. Below is a description of Shadow Warrior.

Brendon Alexander studied ancient civilizations in college and plans to spend summer vacation working at a museum alongside the woman he loves, but nothing is as he expected. The love of his life is engaged to another man; her fiancé is his boss; and his job consists of building a stone altar on which he suspects a real blood sacrifice will be performed.

Lisa Stratton believes her fiancé is prince charming. Her mind tells her he is everything a woman wants. But each time she sees Brendon, her heart whispers of the love she feels for only him.

Seeing Lisa with another man is killing Brendon. He’ll tromp down the pain and step aside for her happiness, but is she happy? His dreams say no, and his nightmares scream with terror as Lisa is sacrificed to an evil creature more hideous than any demon he’s ever fought.

Shadow Curse

On December 15, my new novel Shadow Curse was published. This is the second novel in the Shadow Series. Below is a description of Shadow Curse.

Brendon Alexander went away to college and expected to leave the past behind, including nightmares of the evil demon he sent back to Hell. But a knock on his dorm room door brings back his worst fear—the demon may have gotten loose. And the bearer of the bad news is the woman who once broke his heart.

Lisa Stratton never stopped loving Brendon, even though he moved on to a new life. She wants him back, but the anger flashing in his hazel green eyes threatens her dream of rekindling their love.

Brendon would do anything to have Lisa back, but he swore off demon fighting. He lost her once; if he loses her again, he may curse the day she ever walked back into his life.

Shadow Keeper

Brendon Alexander was a normal high school kid until his dead grandfather appeared in the flames of a fire and bestowed upon him the gift of Demon Fighter.

Lisa Stratton, the new girl at school, has a few secrets of her own—her father is possessed by a demon. She recognizes the scar on Brendon’s chest that brands him as a protected one, but she must discover if he has the ability to cleanse the evil from her father’s body.

The closer Brendon gets to Lisa, the more he uncovers buried secrets from the past. Not hers, but his—his father’s death and the creature that killed him, and the legacy handed down to him from beyond the grave. Burning curiosity and frightening nightmares thrust Brendon deeper into his past while Lisa urges him forward into danger—and into his destiny.
