Bridesmaids, Weddings, & Honeymoons series

Runaway Couple (Book 1)

Piper agreed to be her little sister’s maid of honor. She did NOT agree to a spooky, stormy, haunted venue. Piper’s sister chose a Gothic themed wedding and geared it all toward scaring the guests.

As far as Piper was concerned, mission accomplished. She was thoroughly creeped out.

But the worst was yet to come: Tradition dictates that the best man and maid of honor go off together during the wedding night, creating a steamy romantic night all their own. But Piper is lumped together with Marcus, the best man and the bane of her teenage years. He was a prankster of renown when they were growing up. As the boy-next-door, he singled Piper out to test his newest and best tricks. She didn’t trust him then, and she certainly didn’t trust him now. But despite all that, Piper can’t help but notice the way he keeps looking at her.

Set in South Africa, Runaway Couple is the first book in a series of steamy paranormal ghost romances featuring bridesmaids, weddings and honeymoons, that will appeal to the young and the young at heart.

He’s Married (Book 2)

Eloise had the wedding of her dreams—all arranged and finalized within a month. Now that the wedding night was upon her, her fears reared their ugly heads.

Dane, her new husband was really a stranger to her. In hindsight, Eloise realized she shouldn’t have insisted they wait for their wedding night. It wasn’t that she was inordinately traditional, only that Dane should have been given a choice in the matter.

Because Eloise had a secret. Dane and Eloise left for the beautiful Maldives on a two week honeymoon. In this idyllic setting, life threw her a curve ball. Because Dane had a secret, too. She would have put up with a number of things, but this particular secret could shatter her belief in fairytale weddings.

How was she supposed to deal with another wife?

You're Wrong-paranormal romance

You’re Wrong (Book 3)

Assumptions are invariably incorrect. Even when proven wrong, people tend to stick to what they believe.

Rubi believed herself to be married for six years, until it was proven that she’d never been married at all. Finding herself a free agent again after years of waiting for her elusive husband, she needed a man.

Nathan walked into her life at precisely the right moment. Handsome, hot, and gay, he could only be a temporary distraction, or so she assumed. But what she didn’t take into account was that Nathan might have other plans for her.

Even so, she wanted the real thing—a relationship, stability, and love—and Nathan couldn’t give that to her. Or so she assumed. To prove her wrong about him, he abducted her and took her to the place where they first met, at Dane and Eloise’s wedding the week before.

Back at the lodge, they find themselves in the same haunted room. Between the ghosts and Rubi’s insistence that he is gay, would Nathan succeed in changing her perception of him?

To add to her doubts, there’s also the matter of a certain secret he’s not ready to share.

Jess is determined to prove to the handsome widower that she is the perfect choice to nanny his daughter, no matter how much he scowls at her. Her tenacious determination to prove herself is a hurricane that disrupts Ben’s life, but it may also be the balm his broken heart needs.

As Jess gets closer to the widower, events that defy common sense begin happening around the estate. Unknown to her, it is the first anniversary of Roxanne’s death. This day brings three oddball sisters-in-law, including Roxanne’s identical twin Millicent, to the estate. They claim Roxanne isn’t dead after all.

Worthy To Love - paranormal romance

Worthy To Love (Book 2)

She found her!

Roxanne wasn’t dead! But where she was, she could never come home from.

If only Jess could find a way to make Ben understand that his wife had made a new life for herself, had found love, and was happy. But how could she explain why Roxanne pushed the man she loved into the arms of another woman without hurting Ben all over again?

Only when two worlds came together, a fundamental truth was revealed—that Ben’s marriage to Roxanne had been based on a lie from the beginning. The revelation shook him to his core, so much so that he lost all faith in women – even Jess, who had effortlessly entered his home and his heart.

But Millicent, Ben’s wife’s twin, had a secret plan for Ben and his daughter.

Only one person stood in her way—Jess, the nanny.

Trapped In Yesterday

A Bewildering Ghostly Tale

“PHENOMINAL!! This book is well written, well plotted and unique in its story.”
5* Amazon Review 

How do you escape a jealous ghost?

Lawrence can’t find peace in death. He hangs around the house he lived in with his wife, trapping Rachel in yesterday -the past. Rachel doesn’t even realize she’s stuck until her friend arranges an unusual 30th birthday gift for her – a night with a professional seduction artist.

Trip is hotter than hot, happy with his life, and what he does for a living. He is intrigued, because his services have never been given as a birthday gift before. He doesn’t believe that she only wants to talk about his profession. In his experience, no woman can resist him for long. He figures Rachel is no exception. But Rachel wants someone of her own to love, someone to chase the loneliness out of her life. She does NOT want to be part of Trip’s ‘harem’. 

Although Trip doesn’t understand the concept of monogamy, no ghost is going to keep him from a woman he wants. He doubles down on his efforts to woo the one woman who seems immune to his craft.

However, it quickly becomes clear that Lawrence isn’t willing to share Rachel. He’d rather see her dead.

Finders Keepers:

An Almost Gothic Love Affair

Book Cover- Finders Keepers

In a time when women were disposable, a young woman is sent off into the wilderness to be married to a stranger.
The year is 1749, October 31, All Hallows Eve.

What she finds on her arrival is enough to make her skin crawl. Limping footsteps, blood-curdling screams, smoking torches, and a house on a cliff… A man she only sees in the dark, his breathing labored behind a mask.

All she wanted, was to be respectfully married, to be mistress of her own home, children – not to have her baby stolen as good as from her body!

In the words of the man behind the mask:
“A betrothal is as good as the wedding vows. You cannot leave.”
“Am I your prisoner?”
“You shall stay here until you bear me a child. Then you can stay or go, the choice shall be mine!”

The one person who might have protected her, her self-appointed guardian, Alexander Verhagen, was an unaproachable, grumpy man who didn’t have any regard for her.

Her only ally seemed to be the housekeeper, and she was tied by loyalty to the master of the house.

Moragh’s Ghost

Haunted Bride (Book 1)

Excellent read! Maggie Tideswell’s book is impossible to put down. This writer is skilled in evoking deep emotions in the readerA pleasure to read.” – Amazon Reviewer

A marriage of convenience – no strings attached – suited both Holly and Joshua just fine; a virgin marriage, so that they could both walk away… But they made a crucial mistake: they didn’t take chemistry into account.

Holly — Seriously? They actually advertised for a husband for her without telling her? She was going to have to kill them, stone dead.

But having a ‘husband’ behind her would give her an edge she didn’t have now. Donald, her ex, and his wife would have to revise their strategy of keeping her children away from her. That was an advantage worth taking a risk for. But what kind of man was likely to respond to a tiny ad in the newspaper no one reads anymore?

Joshua — Nicole had to marry him now or let him go. He was done waiting, but he did not know what else he could do to persuade her to his way of thinking. Until he saw the little ad in the paper. A plan fell into his head as if he’d snapped his fingers. This woman who audaciously advertised herself as available would do perfectly. Married to another woman would make him irresistibly attractive to Nicole – as was the case with everything she wanted and couldn’t have.

From the moment Holly accepted Joshua’s offer of marriage, strange things started happening to her, and the strangeness followed her to her new (temporary) home. She was going to have to unravel a decades-old mystery before anything else.

A ghost, a wronged fiancée, and trouble with everyone around them…will Holly and Joshua manage to get what they’ve set out to achieve?

Reckoning (Book 2)

Desperately in love with one man, yet she plans to marry another.

Nicole is the woman everyone loves to hate.


Nicole – Joshua replaced her when he married a stranger. Over her dead body would he get away with her inheritance as well. He was going to have to marry her before the month was out, as Daddy stipulated in his last Will & Testament – his marriage to Holly wasn’t real anyway.

Joshua – Nicole’s ship had sailed – there was no way he’s put Holly, his brand new wife of barely a week, aside to marry Nicole. Her father knew what he was doing.

Ned – He never tried to hide his feeling for Nicole, but this was ridiculous. He was a patient man – he’d hang around to see how her plans pans out, and pick up the pieces when she spectacularly fails. She is carrying his child, after all.

No one seems to understand Nicole’s priorities. She has to reclaim what should have been hers before she can be with Ned. He expects her to be independently rich.
If only the ghost of her mother would give her peace to concentrate on planning the wedding of the year for her and Joshua. She only had a month.

Daddy never said anything about staying married to Joshua.
