The League of Illusion, #1

This is not a straight romance but more a steampunk story with a romantic element. While the romance is part of the storyline, it’s not exactly the primary storyline. Instead, get ready for an adventure full of intrigue, mystery and magic. There is a power struggle over who will head the council and one of the prime candidates has been missing for 5 years! The candidate’s younger brothers are tasked by their father to find him with the help of a Druid tracker, and the ex of the youngest brother. The other lead candidate is out to stop them using whatever means he must, including those that are outlawed by the council. Chases, break-ins and use of magic are all part of the story as the characters travel about England in search of clues. Super action packed and a fantastic story for anyone who loves steampunk or fantasy stories.

Book Blurb for Legacy

London, 1851

Former thief Jovan Davenport is the black sheep in a family of powerful sorcerers. But when his dying father—head of the League of Illusion—reaches out for help, Jovan has no choice but to accept. He must find his missing brother Sebastian and stop the power-hungry Hawthorne family from taking control of the council. If only they'd appointed someone other than Skylar Vanguard to help him in his quest.

Skylar, a druid and accomplished tracker, has spent three years trying to forget her past, especially Jovan Davenport. Once in love, she left Jovan when she discovered his betrayal. She wants nothing to do with him or his family, but must obey the council's will by accompanying Jovan and reporting back on his progress.

Forced to work alongside each other, neither of them expects their passion to return so quickly. But as the conspiracy deepens in a steam-powered world of dirigibles and mechanical golems, will their secrets stand in the way of their mission…and their love?
