The Pirates & Petticoats Series is about spunky heroines and the scoundrels who fall in love with them.
Hart's Desire (Book 1 of a 3 Book Saga)
An independent young lady meets a bold merchant captain pursued by a band of pirates...what could possibly go wrong?
Rakishly handsome and equally exasperating Landon Hart is a Freedom Runner-part of a network of people moving runaways to a new life up North. He’s in Charleston to smuggle a recently escaped group aboard his ship, and uncover the purpose of a clandestine meeting between his late business partner and a British plantation owner. When he meets a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress on the way, he isn't prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart...nor the trouble she manages to attract.
Fiercely independent and equally impetuous Keelan Grey acts the dutiful daughter on the outside, but inside, she’s determined to avoid marriage to a cruel neighboring plantation owner even if it means taking the most desperate measures. Everything changes when a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge, and can assassin targets members of her family. Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in the antagonistic but irresistible sea captain, Landon Hart.
Hart's Passion (Book 2 of a 3 Book Saga)
Keelan Grey is running away from an arranged marriage and Captain Landon Hart doesn’t know it yet, but she’s just been hired as the new cook’s helper on his ship.
When pirates kidnap her first, the fiery vixen ends up neck-deep in trouble. To make matters worse, if certain people find out what Landon’s smuggling in the walls of his hold, all hell will break loose.
Keelan is forced to act a charade and soon her life depends on her playing the part. With the mystery of her true identity yet to be solved, and enemies closing in, she must rely both on her wits and skill with a blade to survive.
One thing is certain; the pirates suspect she’s hidden aboard Landon's ship, and it’s not long before their schooner is spotted on the horizon.
Hart’s Reward (Book 3 of a 3 Book Saga)
An accident robs Landon of the last five years of his life, turning his new wife, Keelan into a stranger aboard his ship.
Worse, a series of events putting members of the Freedom Runners in jeopardy has Landon accusing Keelan of conspiracy and betrayal. When each explanation sounds more outlandish than the last, her hope for Landon to fall in love with her again becomes more and more futile. Bounty hunters close in, setting a trap for Landon. To save him, Keelan must persuade him to trust her. Her fight for Landon’s love soon turns into a fight for his life.

Whether it’s dancing naked in a downpour at 3 AM, zip-lining in a rainforest, or racing ponies, Chloe’s always looking for the next adventure. Her pets have always been named after favorite characters or action heroes: Indiana, Luke, Gimli, Thelma, Rocket, Forrest, Al Giordino, Severus, Mushu, Mérida, Gibbs, Jack…Dead Pool (he’s a goldfish).
Chloe’s biggest fault is the apparent inability to say “no” whether it’s in response to a call for aid or a double-dog-dare to hike home through 30 acres of a snow-covered forest at midnight…during a full moon. It was early morning during said adventure when she came upon a group of sheriff’s deputies searching for a lost girl. So, of course she offered to help (turns out, they were searching for her).
In addition to her addiction to adrenaline, she has a weakness for good red wine, Calvin & Hobbes comics, pie, dark chocolate and brown-eyed guys with beards, which is probably why she digs pirates and treasure hunters and writes about action and adventure, pirates and of course romance, which is the greatest adventure of all.
