A Stone in Time - Book 1

A Stone in Time

AJ Moore stands on a precipice. Her ambitions stalled after an unexpected loss.

A two-hundred-year-old sailing vessel appears through the fog. This could be the story she’s been waiting for. The story to save her flagging career.

But Finn Murphy, the enigmatic captain, is arrogant, annoying, and tight-lipped. But she’s not one to give up easily.

Finn Murphy has only one thing on his mind. Find an ancient stone necklace before someone else does. But he wasn’t expecting to be hounded by a reporter. The more she comes around, the more he wants her to stay.

But the stakes are too high, the mission too important to be tempted. The longer it takes to find the necklace, the weaker his resolve becomes.

Join AJ on an adventure where honor and friendship can beat the odds—and love transcends time.

Keeper of Stones - Book 2

Keeper of Stones

AJ Moore’s life has changed – drastically. And her lover, Captain Finn Murphy, refuses to explain how that happened. His only concern is to hand over an ancient necklace, and the stone within it to his worst enemy, Beckworth, the Viscount of Waverly Manor. The fact the stone can return AJ to the only life she knows seems of little importance to Finn.

After Finn abandons AJ at Beckworth’s home, she soon discovers she’s not alone. Maire is a long suffering “guest” of Beckworth and becomes AJ’s only comfort. With only one direction to follow, AJ and Maire escape and join together to follow the stone and learn its secrets, if they can only stay one step ahead of Beckworth and his men.

Yet nothing can relieve AJ’s sense of betrayal from the one person she still craves to have by her side – Finn Murphy. If she would listen to her heart, AJ might discover that the fastest way home is with the one who chases her.

Against a formidable foe, AJ and her new team of friends pursue a risky plan to steal the stones and the book that may reveal their secret. If successful, the mission prevents a madman from coming into unimaginable power while providing AJ an end to her long struggle.

Back in Baywood, two hundred years in her future, AJ’s brother, Adam, and her best friend, Stella, attempt to put their differences aside to join forces in their investigation of AJ’s disappearance. Journals, lore, and earrings made of stone lead the pair on a familiar trail – their only hope to find AJ.

With the knowledge she sought within her grasp, AJ must decide between the promise of the stones or her love of the man who forever changed her life.

It’s time for AJ Moore to put her life back together, but as she’ll soon discover—you can’t go home again.

After surviving a harrowing battle for the stones, AJ’s back in Baywood, Oregon with the love of her life, Finn Murphy. After several months of danger and intrigue in early nineteenth-century Europe – the time of a mad king on the English throne and Napoleon rampaging Europe – life can be downright boring.

If only the boredom had lasted.

Life is never simple. AJ’s past excursions deliver an uncomfortable aftermath. Bouts with PTSD and grief plague her.

When she glimpses an enemy from 1802 following her, she believes her mind might be unraveling.

For the last year, Stella Caldway watched her dearest friend, AJ Moore-Murphy, disappear into the fog more than once, traveling to the past with no certainty of returning. Though AJ came back, each time stronger than the last, Stella had no illusions about her own chance of survival had it been her that greeted the mist.

Nope. She’s just fine living with her modern-day conveniences, and most importantly—a coffeehouse on every corner.

Until one fateful day, when Stella should have followed her own advice and stayed in bed, the past returned—the stones once again refusing to be silenced. And Stella fell into the rabbit hole, kicking and tossing her cookies the entire way.
