dEADLY BAYOU (AVAILABLE October 1, 2014)
Cypress Lake Chief of Police Jim Foret is found critically wounded near the place where his father committed suicide and dies later at the hospital. Evidence at the scene indicates his wound is also self-inflicted. Susan Foret believes her husband has been murdered and sets out to prove his death is a homicide.
Her suspect list includes a town official, members of local law enforcement, and a veteran who served with Jim's father in Vietnam. In the past investigating on her own puts her in life or death situations. This time proves to be no different. She has warning shots fired at her on one occasion. In another incident a hit on the head lands her in the hospital. Will she end up being a murder victim herself before the killer is brought to justice?
MARDI GRAS GRIS-GRIS (AVAILABLE NOW!)
Susan Foret is again thrust into a murder scene when one of the town’s wealthiest citizens, Teddy Berthelot, is the victim of an elusive killer, stabbed to death as the local Krewe’s parade is ending. He collapses feet away from where Susan stands, a gris-gris bag containing tarot cards and several other fetish items left dangling from the knife in his chest. Although she doesn’t know the victim personally, the murder reopens old wounds inflicted when she discovered her sister-in-law’s body fifteen years prior and the recent solution of that cold case.
A second murder occurs using the same method and leaves the normally quiet Louisiana parish in a state of shock. Susan tries not to get involved, but the mystery lover in her fuels her curiosity about the case her husband Jim Foret the Cypress Lake Chief of Police is investigating. Jim fears her interest might cause a repeat of the dangerous situation she experienced years ago.

GOLDEN LABRYS (AVAILABLE NOW!)
A Minoan artifact, contact with an ancient spirit, a case of mistaken identity, plus a strong attraction to sexy photographer Nikolas Tyler, all add up to a thrill a minute for astrology buff Adriane Ducote during her trip to the Greek island of Crete.
Several different factions want the golden labrys, a ceremonial double-headed axe, and will stop at nothing, even murder, to take possession of the artifact which was sold to Adriane by mistake. She gets a little help from a Minoan priestess, but the lovely spirit has her own agenda regarding the labrys.
Although strongly attracted to Adriane, Nikolas believes she is the mysterious relic smuggler his brother’s artifacts recovery agency ARPA is trying to locate. He feels duty bound to stop her and return the labrys, stolen years ago from a Washington DC museum. He soon discovers she’s not the only player in this dangerous game.
