Jenna feels the position should have been hers and undermines his attempts to reform the troubled school. Barbara (Babs) sees him as a romantic challenge, but Lisa, his confidante, believes she knows where his heart truly lies.
Adam’s strict new rules and sometimes cavalier approach set him on a collision course with a contingent of sullen and rebellious students who set out to manipulate and embarrass him in ways that only teenage girls can.
Still recovering from the tragic loss of his wife and two young children in a car crash, Adam is not in the market for new romance. But that does not prevent him from becoming the target of several predatory, repressed, or love-hungry libidos. His virile presence acts as a catalyst that upsets the entrenched order and stability of the school world, and proceeds to pull more than one dark, scandalous secret into the light … And then Nicole, his late wife’s tearaway kid sister returns from Africa - and she is hiding secrets of her own.
Intrigue, scandal and suspense simmer beneath the surface of this light-hearted and humour-peppered romance, where one man’s influence on a school full of wayward girls and their teachers changes their lives in ways none of them could imagine – and eventually his own.

Cat Sanders becomes the heiress of her vampire great-great-grandfather, Vlad V Draculesti. Vlad is dying because of an incident that happened decades ago. Now, all he wants is to die in peace.
Unfortunately for Vlad V, the US intelligence agencies are suspicious as of his entity, and open an investigation to find out who is this man who has lived for centuries? Homeland Security Agent John Miller, working on the case, knows that Vlad V is a vampire, and he blackmails him for billions of dollars not to divulge the secret to the authorities.
Cat and Vlad’s three vampire friends—François, Angelique, and Mundibuto—come to his aid to foil the intelligence agencies’ plans, and eliminate the corrupt federal agent’s threat. Will they be successful, or will Vlad be discovered for who he is, and die in a Federal research laboratory?

REVIEWS “Funny, well-paced, and perceptive: Reidel lays a writer’s ear on the human heart.” - Nancy Fischer, Editor "Marion's vignettes of familiar drama, are both insightful and comedic; each story is a focused snapshot of Canadian life." Natalie Little, Author "Marion's writing finds the subtle tenderness and humour within the complexities of everyday stories." Beth Anne Ellipsis, Guelph Spoken Word
Cat Sanders has a simple task: spread Vlad V Draculesti’s ashes in Transylvania at midnight, during full moon. But it won’t be that simple. Vlad V, and Vlad the Impaler’s old vampire enemies abduct her and her Romanian friend, Dr. Tudor Lupu. While in captivity they discover the Vampire Queen’s proto-vampire and zombie army, which are held in hibernation to be used for mayhem and destruction whenever the queen so wishes.
She and Dr. Tudor might not be allowed to see the light of day again. Cat’s only hope for rescue is her vampire friend, Mundibuto, who is presently in Transylvania. Will they be able to escape from the blood sucking proto-vampires, and flesh-eating zombies, or become zombies themselves?
When Cat Sanders’ vampire great-great-grandfather, Vlad V Draculesti, bequeaths his fortune to her, she thinks the worst of her problems would be dealing with unscrupulous lawyers, greedy financiers and bankers, Wall Street shysters, corrupt politicians, devious conmen, and depraved socialites.
Instead, her nemesis, Veronica Seyler, allied with a vampire-slayer drug cult, demands extortion money or she would be killed. Unlike Vlad V, Cat is not a vampire and her life is in danger. Luckily, her vampire friend, Angelique, comes to her aid. But the cult is more cunning and dangerous than even her vampire friend could handle. Would Cat and Angelique the vampire be able to come out of this alive even if Cat pays the ransom?

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you woke up in someone else’s body? What if you also got to be fifteen years younger and fifty pounds lighter, with all your money troubles behind you? But what if you had to choose between your handsome lover and your rich husband, when both turned out to be strangers with secrets of their own? “Beatrix Reincarnated” is the ultimate “what if” story. On the New Year’s Eve of 2011, Beatrix Lin, a twenty-eight-year-old overweight and lovesick junior financial analyst from New York finds out her boyfriend has been cheating on her and dies in a freak accident shortly after midnight. With a little mix-up in the Underworld, she is reincarnated into the body of a beautiful thirteen-year old Lin Bee-Er, daughter of the powerful Right Prime Minster “Lord Toad” in a hypothetical Sheng Dynasty of ancient China. Bee-Er / Bea is thrust into a blind, arranged marriage with a pimple-faced teen she nicknames “Rudolph”, son of the equally powerful “Prince Terminator”. She soon realizes her in-laws’ feudal polygamous household contains all elements of a modern dysfunctional family, complete with a stern, violent military dad, spendaholic desperate housewives, an alcoholic gambling addict, and a confused and angry Emo-boy. She must maneuver between jealousy and backstabs of her new husband’s concubines—neurotic poet “Tooth Fairy” and the seductive but lethal “Carmen”. With her sharp business sense and her gift in marketing, she has to rescue the family’s failing finance while scheming against in-laws who behave like evil characters out of the movie “Horrible Bosses”. She must also face “Loverboi”—the old Bee-Er’s lover, a mysterious boy with formidable martial art skills and a shady past. It is a tale of passion and revenge, set in a swashbuckling olden China and told in the style of Bridget Jones Diary. It is also a step-by-step playbook on how a modern, white-collared woman takes on an ancient, feudal familial hierarchy by applying her skills on corporate politics. In the end, this is a story about how a self-confessed loser of the “game of hearts” finds true love again, and again.

Whilst visiting a county show he rescues two mares from a cruel owner who was about to sell them to a glue factory agent. Surprisingly the mares are in foal, the colts being sired by the Native Indian stallions who were stars in the wild west show performing next to the county show's livestock market, from where their mothers were purchased. When born the foals don't fit the usual profile of race horses, but as they grow it soon becomes clear to everyone how incredibly fast they are. The family and friends become well liked in the country by farming folk and eligible estate owner alike. The book continues to evolve, to include moving, heartwarming and exciting events that happen, not just in the Manchester area, where Marie lives and works during the week but also in the country community where she, and her three daughters spend their weekends.

MIRACLES AND MILLIONS: TWO MINDS, TWO BODIES, TWO HEARTS, ONE SOUL
In the first book, The Eagle and Child, of this trilogy of the adventures of Cissy Wanton, we are introduced to an, innocent and very naive young woman. With background of the Wars of the Roses, Cissy is forced to grow up quickly. Although caring neither for the Yorkists or the Lancastrians, she found herself included in Queen Margaret's retinue. In this second novel, The Bluebell, we find Cissy again seeking adventure, spurred on by a desire to achieve the ways of a lady under the tutelage of Queen Margaret. Cissy, now a beautiful young woman, undertakes the life of a spy for the deposed Queen, and travels to France. When she encounters her fickle fiancee, Sir Richard Lovelace, she discovers she is now a woman of means, and escapes with the jewels that Dick purchased with the dowry from Cissy's father. Her adventures continue, complete with encounters with devious but handsome lovers, amorous clergy, and shipwrecks. Cissy's own sense of humour sustains her during her voyages.
