Vicki Allen

Summary:  Born youngest of four children into a large family of old money, American photographer Abigail Christensen entered a world already expecting great things of her, and spent her entire life trying to conform, striving to please a family she knew she never could. 
Finally breaking free of stifling conventionality, she travels with her brother to Mexico, drifting from province to province as she captures photographs for an upcoming exhibit, wishing she had settled for the monotony of her previous lifestyle when she attracts the attention of legendary drug lord, Esai Molinero.  Read excerpts from chapters one and two here

Summary:  For Molly is contemporary fiction novel with southern flair, set in multiple locations around the Deep South.

Vicki Allen

Summary:  My, quickly time had flown. For Ashley Stewart, it had passed by in a flash. It hardly seemed possible that thirteen years had gone by since she fled Oklahoma on the heels of a nasty divorce, returning to Louisiana to regain her sanity and raise her child.
She had settled into a life of quiet contentment, running the family business and hanging out with old friends, rekindling old relationships while remembering what about them she loved most. She rediscovered romance when she married Jack, the one man who understood her—and loved her anyway.
Ashley felt safe within the boundaries of her hometown, believing that nothing could ever hurt her again. However, her security was a smokescreen, a delicate facade of which Ashley was completely unaware. She thought she was protected—untouchable in her happy little world—but she was wrong. Little did she know of the danger that lurked just beyond the trees.  Read excerpts from chapter one here.
