Dr. Alexander Dominican needs a mother for his infant daughter. Motherless himself from birth, he refuses to let his daughter grow up without one. He's convinced kindergarten teacher Mary Adams is the answer to his dilemma. When he offers Mary a marriage of convenience, he has no idea he's setting into motion a destiny that has taken him seven hundred years to fulfill.

Mary Adams needs to pay her deceased husband's gambling debts, and Alex's offer of marriage seems to be the answer to her prayers. But on the day of their marriage, Mary begins to have strange hallucinations-memories of another woman's life. A life that had taken place centuries before and somehow seems frighteningly familiar.

Before Mary can figure out why she's hallucinating, it becomes clear that someone in Alex's house is out to destroy her. Could it be one of Alex's sinister servants, or could it be Alex himself? Until she can learn the answer, Mary knows she must keep her distance from Alex, but he's reawakening a hidden desire-a deep longing-that she can't ignore. But will following her heart lead her to eternal love or to a nightmare that will never end?

The only way to discover the truth is to unravel centuries of...Tangled Memories.

Meet the Author

I've dreamed of being a writer since I reported on freelance writing for a career project in the ninth grade. After majoring in English at Western Kentucky University, I taught high school English for five years. Since 1982 I've made my living as a writer-a technical writer-but I didn't have the nerve to make my dream come true until after a life-threatening illness in 1988, an illness I describe in this book.

I've enjoyed my process of becoming a published author. A member of the Romance Writers of America, I've been active in my local Kentucky RWA chapter and am a member of Novelist, Inc. My best friends are fellow writers. Who else will check a point plot for me or understand GMC and POV?

I live in Louisville, Kentucky, along with three dogs and two cats. I enjoy taking riding lessons on American Saddlebred Horses. I'm a member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association. I volunteer at The Luci Center, a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Shelbyville Kentucky providing therapeutic riding and hippotherapy for individuals with disabilities.

Believe me. Dreams do come true! On January 2, 2000, I married Bill, my soul mate, who I have on good authority has been reincarnated with me at this time.

Thanks to everyone who has read and enjoyed my books and a special thanks to my many writing buddies who have made the last years the best years of my life!

Read an Excerpt

As Alex pulled his giant black horse upward, the animal threatened the air with his heavily shod hooves. Thwarted, I reined Lady to the right only to meet again my black-clad tormentor and his warlike horse. Whichever way I turned, he blocked my way. I screamed with frustration and fright. I wouldn't let this man get the best of me. When I pivoted again to the left, the black horse was a jump ahead of me. Again the animal reared. My brave mare shuddered beneath my legs.

"I hate you Alexander Dominican!" I shrieked through tears.

Alex's horse turned in an agitated circle. "No you don't."

"Yes, I do! This marriage is damned! I want to get away from you." I started forward once more.

Slowly, like the view from a slow motion camera, the black gelding reared again. Just as slowly, Alex toppled off. Already unbalanced, the horse fell on his side amid a wild thrashing of hooves. In seconds, the black animal regained his feet, yet Alex remained silent and still on the ground. Lady stood immobile beneath me. My palms were wet inside my gloves.

Dizzy waves washed through me. Like so many other things, this had happened to me sometime in the past. Not in this particular way, not in this same manner, but it had happened. My heart trembled with remembering. My body ached with a longing and an anxiety retained from some previous time. Some unfathomable force pulled me toward Alex in a way I couldn't control. I fought it. A fierce battle raged within my mind and spirit. I convulsed with it. I opposed the certainty growing strongly within my being that I could not leave without knowing if my husband was alive or dead. After all, he was my reason for existence.

    wonderful gothic romance

    Mary Adams was a widow for only a short time when she married Dr. Alexander Dominican so she could act as a mother to his child. His wife died recently as well from cancer but before her death they saved the child¿s life by doing a cesarean section. In return for marrying Alex, he would pay off the fifty thousand in debts her late husband left behind when he died. <P>Mary moves into Marchbrook Manor, a medieval house in the heart of Kentucky. Once she steps through the door, strange things begin happening to her. She has visions of a medieval woman and her husband, a great lord in England of 1327. In addition to her visions someone in the house is trying to drive Mary away by playing cruel and malicious tricks on her. When she tells Alex about the incidents he doesn¿t believe her, which hurts Mary a great deal because she has come to love him. <P> TANGLED MEMORIES is a wonderful gothic romance complete with a foreboding castle, a helpful housekeeper, strange visions, and an insane antagonist. Told in the first person from Mary¿s point of view, readers feel the same fears that the heroine experiences. Jan Scarbrough has written a modern day gothic that will delight fans of this growing sub genre. <P>Harriet Klausner
