Her life has been controlled, from the clothes she wears to the food she eats. She longs to be like other girls and bob her hair, raise her hemline, and learn to do the Charleston, but first she has to break free from the aunt and uncle who have kept her--and her inheritance--very close.
Paul Tollick chased butterflies when he was young. Now he chases gangsters. A detective whose job plunges him into the harsh underworld of gangsters, bootleggers, and fast women, he is captivated by the sight of innocent Bethany, sitting in the park surrounded by butterflies. But two other men have determined to catch her and one is a dangerous gangster who is part of Al Capone's gang. Will Bethany exit her cocoon, find strength and fly free or be trapped?
Trapping the Butterfly, a coming of age love story, is the first in Debra Parmley's 1920's Butterflies Fly Free series about teenage flappers finding their wings.
The best man. The princess. An unforgettable wedding journey.
When Blake and Grace agreed to marry, they thought everything was settled. They thought they had more time. Unfortunately, Miss Milly put their wedding plans on steroids. They had less than two weeks to make it happen.
Grace had a camp to run, a dream to save, and not an ounce of bridezilla in her. Blake had a business to run, a family to fix, and a cougar for a personal assistant. Their task seemed impossible. Their love felt too new. Their responsibilities were great.
Luckily, fate steps in, money makes almost anything possible, and love finds a way.
Cimmaron Zhaan refuses to follow the traditional path of a Dlog woman. Instead she dreams of traveling through space and flying spaceships for the Coalition.

Enter sexy club manager Tamaki Grierson. Cimmaron’s not looking for a mate, but there’s no denying that sparks fly between them. Desperate to leave Marchant, all she wants is to keep her head down and work—no romance for her.

Their loving is breathtaking. Her resistance is at low ebb, her heart and mind battling her overwhelming attraction for Tamaki. If she isn’t careful, her Dlog hormones will tie her to him for life and her struggle to fly spaceships will be for naught.
