The Trelawneys of Williamsburg series is a time-travel historical romance saga that begins in 1746 Virginia and continues on through the American revolution and after. This uniquely American series addresses the racial fabric of America's history - and, of course, the men and women who fight for freedom, and who fall in love.
Tender (Book One)
Rachel Sheppard is running from a forgotten past. She arrives in Colonial Williamsburg with her best friend, Camisha, and soon learns that the man who raised her has been keeping a dark secret from her for twenty years and blackmailing Camisha. Now, he'll do everything to stop Rachel from revealing his secret.
The young women seek shelter at Rosalie, an historic estate that was once a tobacco plantation. While a thunderstorm crashes outside that evening, Rachel hears the historical legends of Rosalie, including the story of Grey Trelawney and his young daughter Emily, who died at a fire at Rosalie in the 18th century.
As she dresses for bed, she looks out the window and sees a little girl begging for her help. Could she actually be the ghost of Emily Trelawney? She races after the child into the ruins of the original plantation house, and as lightning strikes, she collapses. She awakens in the arms of Grey Trelawney, the sexy plantation owner who has dark secrets of his own. She learns that secret when she discovers that Camisha, too, has traveled back to the year 1746 - with disastrous results.
Will Rachel ever remember what happened in her childhood that wiped away her most treasured memories? How can a man as contemptible as Grey not only awaken in her the most tender and erotic passions, but also hold the key to restoring those memories? Can she prevent the fire that killed both the man and the child she now loves? How can she keep Camisha safe in a time and place so dangerous for her?

Immortal (Book Two)
Rachel remembered nothing of the past. Her sister Merrilea remembers too much.
IMMORTAL continues the saga of the Trelawneys of Williamsburg, which began in 1746 with the love story of Rachel and slave-trader Grey Trelawney. IMMORTAL is the story of Merrilea Miller, the younger sister of Rachel, who has been raised in hiding by her grandmother, Hannah Hastings ("Nan"), an English woman with a stormy, sorrowful past and many secrets.
(Please note this is the second in a series and is more enjoyable when read following TENDER, Book 1.)
When Merrilea was still a toddler, Nan changed her name to Marley Hastings for her own protection - and for Nan's.
Join Marley, an archaeologist and Williamsburg historian as she discovers the "Lost Sea Captain" in the dig of an 18th-century ship found in a construction site in Norfolk. When she goes on a Caribbean vacation with Nan, Marley herself nearly drowns in a tropical storm until she's rescued by a handsome sea captain.
Marley soon learns she's traveled in time and that Hawk and his best friend, Raven, support the burgeoning American revolution on their ship, the Adventurer, as privateers in the year 1775. The crew wages valiant fights against Royal Navy warships on the high seas, British Army gunners at the Battle of Great Bridge, and the villainous Lucian Caine, who has returned from the past to settle an old score he had with the Trelawneys.
As shy Marley falls in love with the charming Hawk, he brings her out of her shell and teaches her to have courage. Hawk himself is pleasantly surprised at the passion revealed in the fiery young woman. Marley soon comes to believe that Hawk is indeed the Lost Sea Captain - but how can she intervene in his fate without upsetting history?
