Passionate Historical Romantic Suspense

An intriguing, complex mystery grounded in extensive research into controversial 1890s immigration policy blended with passionate romance and a dash of wit.

Coming soon in print!

Lily is not quite a typical woman in Toledo, Ohio, 1896. She may be repressed and dependent on her husband, but she supports the vote for women and has a mind of her own. When Johnny Pentland is found dead at a notorious brothel, she discovers her husband is not the man she thought he was.

Pursued by Pentland’s enemies, Lily embarks on a journey that will take her across the country to San Francisco and across the ocean to Imperial China as she unravels a web of murder and corruption reaching from the opium dens of Chinatown to the mansions of Nob Hill.

Her journey becomes one of the heart when she crosses paths with Jackson Tremaine, a debonair, worldly-wise physician. Lily and Jackson begin a conflicted, passionate relationship as they encounter the mysterious Celestial Girl and her dangerous entourage.

Celestial Girl, A Lily Modjeska Mystery is on Nook, US Kindle, Canada Kindle, UK Kindle, Smashwords, Apple, and Kobo.

Celestial Girl, A Lily Modjeska Mystery is on Kindle in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, and Netherlands.

New 5-Star Review “Well written, good characters, and plotting….I'm a Lisa Mason fan, for sure!”

5 stars Great Read! October 12, 2013
“I really enjoyed the story and would love to read a sequel! I really enjoy living in the 21st century, but this book made me want to visit the Victorian era. The characters were brought to life and were a delight to read about. The tasteful sex scenes were very racy. Good Job!”

Celestial Girl includes Books 1 through 4 of the Lily Modjeska miniseries. In Book 1: The Heartland, Lily flees Toledo on the Overland train. She must share a seat with Jackson Tremaine and befriends the Celestial Girl, the daughter of a Chinese dignitary. But appearances are not what they seem. In Book 2: Jewel of the Golden West, Lily and Jackson arrive in San Francisco and discover the murder of an immigration official connected with the Celestial Girl. They are compelled into a dangerous murder investigation. As they begin a passionate affair, a gangland contract for murder is taken out on Lily’s life. In Book 3: The Celestial Kingdom, Lily and Jackson journey to Imperial China, confronting soldiers of the Boxer Rebellion and brutal slavers. Their relationship is challenged along the way. Risking her life, Lily discovers secrets vital to the identity of the Celestial Girl. And in Book 4: Terminus, Lily and Jackson return to San Francisco and solve the tragic mystery of the Celestial Girl.
