A Bodyguard For The Princess is a Romantic Suspense that was just
released on AMAZON.

SM ABodyguard for the Princess


Chloe Devereux, the youngest sister of Prince Paul of Rensy Island, has convinced her brother to let her study at Harvard University incognito. She enrolls in a graduate program and plans to enjoy a year of freedom and fun without secret service detail trailing her. But the school year starts with the gruesome murder of a young woman in Chloe’s co-ed residence.
The duplex building houses American students on scholarships and wealthy foreigners, all working hard to garner a Harvard degree and build a brilliant future: the friendly Jason Owen who invites her to play detective with him; the female roommates who gossip and eavesdrop; the smooth-talking, good-looking males who want to date Chloe and her roommate; the lesbian athlete and the gorgeous model hiding from their past.
Can Chloe trust her neighbors? Some of them are not who they claim to be. But they all have one thing in common. They’re terrified of being the next victim and strive to discover the killer.
Danger looms in every corner. Fear sizzles in the building.
Who is the murderer? Who will be the next victim?

A Wonderful Life by Mimi Barbour


“Clarence, you haven’t stopped watching Noel Bradford for days. What in the world is happening to that young man?”

“I’m glad you noticed my preoccupation, Sir. I’m afraid he’s not doing too well. Do you remember a man called George Bailey?”

“Certainly, I do. Wasn’t he the reason you got your wings?”

“Yes, that’s him. Well poor Noel Bradford is heading in the same direction; he’s on the bridge right now, ready to jump. I’m thinking it’ll take the same interference to stop him from killing himself that it took to prevent George from doing the same thing many years ago.”

“I see. Then what are you waiting for, Clarence? You must go and save him.”

“I suppose you’re right. I just hate the thought of that icy water. It took me forever to warm up the last time.”

“Clarence, if you stop that poor fellow from ruining all the lives of the people who will one day love him, I’ll send you the wherewithal to get warm, now off with you. There’s no time to waste.”

Chapter One

Noel Bradford never believed himself to be a coward, a weakling who gave up in troubled times, a man whose shoulders were so narrow they couldn’t bear misfortune.

He was wrong.

Four days ago, when the police had knocked on his door to give him the horrifying news that his parents and their driver, his only brother, had all been killed in a car accident, he’d thought nothing could get worse.

They were heading to their favorite resort in Aspen when their car careened over the bank of the mountainous road, dropping into a lake probably 400 feet below. The back end of the car, where the license plate could be seen through binoculars, proved it was their vehicle and the chance of any survivors was nil.

Jingle With My Princess by Mona Risk


“Have you lost your mind, Amy? Calling your former boyfriend to Rensy Island,” Prince Paul bellowed, his menacing scowl reflecting the gloom of the day.

“Chill out, Paul.” Amy shrugged and picked up a yellow bear from the carpeted floor of the Yellow Lounge Room. “I don’t care that he’s a former boyfriend. I’m seeking Scott’s help for our son.”

Paul followed her to stand next to the portable crib where their toddler lay, playing with his blue blanket. “I’m sure we can find a better doctor in England.”

“Dr. Pratt is an expert in neurosurgery. People come to him from everywhere. He’s the best doctor to perform such a difficult surgery on Eric.” Gently, she stroked her son’s dark hair. The large bay windows of her favorite room lit the toddler’s crib with the dwindling sunrays that had managed to poke through the gray carpet of clouds.

“Seriously, Amy? No one is as good as your Scott?” Furious, Paul grabbed her shoulders and spun her to face him. “No one in England or all of Europe?”

How could she make him understand that his outburst didn’t make sense? “For heaven’s sake, Paul, I dumped Scott for you five years ago. Now two malignant tumors threaten our baby’s brain. Would you sacrifice him because of your blind jealousy? Would you let your son die, or become mentally disabled, because you can’t stand to be in the same room with Scott?”

“How can you say such awful things?” His edgy tone softened to a complaint. Small lines framed his gorgeous green eyes that had lost their sparkle today.

“Listen to me, Paul. Our little Eric needs Dr. Pratt’s medical expertise. And that is that. I’m writing to him.”

“Amy!” Warning rang in his voice.

Instead of antagonizing him, she should gain his support. Stepping closer, Amy wrapped her arms around her husband’s neck. “I love you, Paul. I left my country and abandoned a promising medical career at Harvard for you. I’ve put you and Rensy Island ahead of my dreams because I loved you then, and I love you now. Don’t let your jealousy blind you to your son’s needs.”

Visibly in torment, Paul heaved a deep sigh. “I’m sorry, Amy. I love you and I can’t stand to see your ex-boyfriend here.” Paul gave her a scorching kiss. “For Eric, I will let him come. Promise you’ll avoid any private meetings with him.”

Her dashing husband who had half of Europe’s beauties at his feet was afraid to lose her. She smiled. “I promise I won’t see him without you next to me. We’ll meet him at the airport.”

“No. The reigning prince and princess of Rensy Island can’t go to the airport to meet a doctor.”

“Paul, we can’t just send a driver when we need Dr. Pratt to save our son. We have to show him some consideration if we want him to drop his schedule and fly across the ocean two weeks before Christmas.” A lot of consideration after her memorable last meeting with Scott, during which he’d proposed and she’d refused.

“You and I are not going.” Irritation oozed from his voice, a warning sign that he’d reached the limit of his patience as far as Scott was concerned. “If you insist on having someone greet him at the airport, send Philip or Charlene.” Arching an eyebrow, Paul rubbed his chin for a few seconds. “On second thought, I’ll ask Philip to meet him. I don’t trust that guy around my sister.”

FREE Book on Amazon

FOR SARAH’S SAKE [Book 3 of The Senator’s Family Series]

Romantic Suspense FREE on Amazon:

Friday, 9/28 and Saturday, 9/29 

A broken marriage.
Second chance at love.
And a precious little girl trying to escape danger and hatred, to get herself a loving family.


“You must obey your mamma’s orders. You understand, Sarah?” The woman held the little girl’s attention with a stern look.

“Yes, Auntie. Me do what Mommy wants.” Sarah’s lips wobbled and the woman hoped the girl would keep calm for a few more minutes—long enough for the woman to relinquish her guardianship.

“When the elevator door opens, you walk out. What should you do next?”

“Walk to the door and bang.” Sarah jolted her foot forward, mimicking a kick.

“Who should you ask for?”

“Doc Dave.” The little girl raised her right thumb to her mouth and chewed on it with a slurping noise.

“When you see Dr. Dave, you open your mother’s purse and give him the envelope.” The woman patted the worn handbag hanging by its straps around Sarah’s neck. “Don’t give it to anyone else. Only to Dr. Dave.”

“Yes,” Sarah answered.

“Your mamma will be proud of you.”

Tears of fear simmered in the girl’s eyes. “Me want to stay with Mommy. Please, Auntie, pl…please. Take me back to Mommy.” Sarah dropped the plastic bag clutched in her left hand and pulled on the woman’s black skirt.

“I can’t. Your mamma went to Heaven. Now you have to go to Dr. Dave.”

Sarah’s chest heaved with sobs.

Impatient, the woman huffed and checked her watch. “You’re wasting my time. Your mamma told you to be brave and Dr. Dave won’t like you if you keep crying.”

The girl swallowed a hiccup. “Can Doc Dave take me to Mommy?”

The woman shrugged. “You should ask him with a big smile. Don’t lose your bag of clothes.” She eased the small fingers off her skirt, slipped the bag around Sarah’s wrist, and urged her inside the elevator. “Now go.” Resolutely she pushed the elevator button to the third floor and swiftly pulled her arm out as the door slid shut. “I did my part. The rest is up to God,” she mumbled under her breath and dashed out of the medical building into Boston’s brisk winter afternoon.
