At Lavender House, Evie McIntyre is haunted by the whispers from her bedroom closet. Before she can make sense of their murmurs, the house “warbles” between times and transports her to the Civil War. Past and present have blended, and Evie wishes she’d paid more attention to history. Especially since former Confederate officer, Jack Ramsey, could use a heads up.
Torn between opposing forces, Jack struggles to defend the valley and people he loves. Meeting Evie turns his already tumultuous world upside down. Will solving the mystery of the whispers return her home, and will the handsome scout be by her side?
Against the background of Sheridan’s Burning of the Shenandoah Valley, Jack and Evie fight to save their friends and themselves – or is history carved in stone?
Secret Lady is the 3rd book in the Ladies in Time series.

Startled by the knock on the front door, Evie hurriedly retraced her steps, nearly stumbling in the blackness. The nightlight in the hall must have gone out. She clung to the railing to descend the stairs.
Why were moonbeams the only illumination in the parlor? She’d left the lamp on. Tiddles couldn’t turn it off.
Guided by the milky light coming through the windows, she made her way to the door. When had it stopped raining?
More importantly, should she open at a stranger’s knock? What if he—she sensed their caller was male—had foul play, as police dramas termed it, on his mind?
She didn’t even have pepper spray. Where was her grandmother?
“Open up. I need to get to cover,” urged a masculine voice in a gruff whisper.
What? Who? She turned the lock and cracked the door.
He peered through the slit she’d made. “Is that you, Hettie?”
Was he seeking one of the girls on staff? The name wasn’t familiar, but it might be the part-timer Grandma G. recently took on. Hesitant, but intrigued, Evie widened the opening.
A tall young man stood before her in a brown wide-brimmed hat and jacket that fell below his waist.
Shoulder length hair ruffled in the breeze. Dark pants met chestnut-colored riding boots, and he wore buff leather gloves. Moonlight streamed over the lean figure.
He didn’t smell angelic, but of wood smoke and days in the saddle, part horse, part man, and the wide-open outdoors. His pungent masculine blend was unknown to her, but she recognized the elements…wind, fire, horse, and man.
Did cowboys live around here?
Giveaway ends Jan 17th:
Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my people and furbabies. An avid gardener, I grow herbs and heirloom flowers and use them in my stories. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans, and the Scots-Irish are at the heart of my inspiration. My English/Scots-Irish ancestors were among the earliest settlers in America and the valley. I write historical romance set in the colonial frontier (The Native American Warrior Series), and the American Revolution (The Traitor's Legacy Series). Some of my historicals include ghosts and other paranormal elements. I also write Young Adult shapeshifter/ fantasy romance (The Secret Warrior Series), and New Adult time travel/time slip romance, Somewhere in Time, and my latest ongoing series, Ladies in Time. I also write single titles and nonfiction.
