A Chick Lit Romance
Jerry Maguire ruined my life.
Did he have any idea of the impact of those three little words on people’s lives? I got married because of them. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I’m Lucy Stars and I give advice to the lovelorn on a podcast from my kitchen table. My qualifications? None whatsoever, except for the fact that I’ve had more relationships than I can count or even remember, so by definition, I’m an expert.
And all because I was looking for someone to complete me.
My life reads like a chick-lit bestseller. Swear. Or a good beach read when you want to hit the pause button on life. But for me? My story doesn’t end on the last page.
My incredibly romantic husband, Kraft Conboy, is a successful and oh, so handsome life coach. His specialty? Women. Relationships. Romance. He was nothing short of inspirational. My plan was to live happily ever after…with him. The pages of our lives would unfold like a sexy, romantic comedy or maybe even a contemporary romance novel. And? He was good in bed. But my life zagged when it should have zigged.
I turned back to my computer. In the shock of the moment, I’d gotten distracted; I still had a webcast to give. What in God’s name was staring back at me? Lights. Lots of lights on my screen. My callers were trying to get through. Oh, no, my microphone was live! My entire audience had just heard me get dumped! And heard me plead, no, beg, for him to stay. I give relationship advice and I tell people not to do that!
My romantic comedy had turned into a horror film and there was no pause button to hit. Read more on Amazon.

HOW EASILY ONE’S HEART CAN BE STOLEN…DEPENDS UPON THE THIEF
Known to some as Gentleman Jack and others as Swift Nick, Jack Nevison preys on the wealthy, stealing coin (and the occasional kiss) on England’s darkest roads. Jack’s dangerous deeds are legend, but the thrill of a highwayman’s life is growing cold–until he meets the intrepid travel writer and spinster, Arabella Hamilton.
Beautiful and bold, Arabella Hamilton may come from the world Jack despises, but she’s a kindred spirit at heart. When circumstances bring them together the sparks ignite–yet they remain on opposite sides of society and the law and with each encounter they risk more. To be together, will one of them have to give up their world forever?
The adventures and exploits of real-life highwayman Swift Nick and the observations of 17th century travel writer Celia Fiennes are woven throughout this tale–which takes the reader from the privileged world of London’s aristocracy to the highways and byways, inns and hunting grounds of some of England’s most celebrated rogues. I hope you will enjoy it, and think it worth the wait.
Rakes and Rogues of the Restoration
The 17th century has always been one of my favorite periods in history and I am delighted to release the Rakes and Rogues of The Restoration series at last. Libertine’s Kiss is the first book, followed by Soldier of Fortune (The King’s Courtesan)and my new release The Highwayman. Although each one can stand alone, they were written as a series, and when read in sequence, they provide a richer picture of the characters and the times.
Meet the libertine, William de Veres, and his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth Walters in Libertine’s Kiss. Catch up with the soldier Robert Nichols and the courtesan Hope Mathews, and revisit Elizabeth and Will in Soldier of Fortune. Last but not least, prepare to be swept away by The Highwayman.
