REMEMBER THE LADIES
Growing up in an orphanage prepared Amelia Cooke for the high-stakes role of a female lobbyist in 1887, a time before women could vote. So when she’s hired by the National Women’s Suffrage Association to lobby for a suffrage amendment, Amelia feels empowered to give women a voice. What she doesn’t foresee is her ex-lover, Senator Edward Stillman. Stillman is charismatic, driven, and desperate to crush the amendment and Amelia. But in a political game where bribery, threats, extortion, and seduction prevail, who will win and at what cost?
Set in the extravagant Gilded Age, Remember the Ladies explores the conflict between the sexes with delightful writing and elegant descriptions, which brings the reader back to a time when the struggle for women’s equality had just begun.

FROM ACROSS THE ROOM

At once Thomas tosses aside his literary pursuits for a charmed summer of romance and future. However, Mary Harting is the daughter of notorious railroad tycoon Charles Harting, and he has no intention of letting a useless wordsmith derail his own critical plans for Mary.
