What could possibly induce at woman to follow in the footsteps of her mother and further sully her reputation by becoming a mistress?
Lilly Claremont is well used to being at the centre of gossip. Being the illegitimate child of a rich businessman never failed to titillate the gossips and while she cared little about the wagging tongues she never intended to reinforce their opinions of her by ruining herself completely.
But it seems Lord Hawksley is determined to make the fascinating Lilly his mistress…
Evan has no doubt her bold tongue and beautiful body could keep him entertained for some time. Captivated by her, he must find a way to burn through his desire for her. He cannot marry a woman of such social standing so why not make her his mistress?
After the murder of her father, Lilly is searching for answers and they lead her directly to Lord Hawksley. But will they also lead her to his bed…?
When Clarissa takes a much needed job under slightly false pretenses, she doesn’t think it will be such a big deal. She may have told her movie-star boss that she was married but that shouldn’t matter. After all, she doesn’t want anything to do with men for a long, long time.
It’s hard for a woman to keep up the masquerade when her boss is as handsome as Slade Jacobson and the job takes her to Hawaii with him. In between handling his whirlwind four-year-old daughter and dealing with a whole cast of Hollywood personalities, Clarissa has to keep a tight hold on her heart.
Masquerade is romantic comedy at its best–clean and funny with lots of heart.

USA TODAY Bestselling author and seven time Amazon All Star author Dianne Harman presents a cozy murder mystery with an endangered species at its heart.
When the Lotis Blue butterfly, an endangered species, is sighted in a forest where logging operations are being conducted, it sets off a chain reaction in the small town of Red Cedar, California. David Sanders, a Forest Service employee and the step-brother of the popular owner of Gertie’s Diner, is found murdered after he entered the forest to look for the blue butterfly. But who killed him?
There are plenty of suspects, but what’s the motive? Was it the Jefferson Lumber Company employee who developed cancer from the improper use of formaldehyde at the company’s plywood plant? Or George Myers, the jealous husband of Ruby, David’s former lover, who has anger issues? Ruby could also be considered a suspect. And what about the Environmental Studies teaching assistant? Or the Forest Service employee who’s fanatic about saving the environment. Or even Gertie?
Join Liz Lucas and her boxer guard dog, Winston, as she helps the incompetent, bumbling chief of police search for the murderer before he makes a mistake and arrests her friend Gertie. As always, there are dogs, good food and recipes.
