Part suspense, part family saga, and all romance, The Tales of Chapel Hall continue with Indecorum.
Caprice Winston is on a mission to find answers about the past. She’s determined to fulfill her promise to help her sister but fears discovery. Even she thinks that some parts of the past should remain there. She struggles with the truths she finds, all while fighting her developing feelings for the man by her side.
Jordan Sedgewick, the Earl of St. Clair, is determined to keep Caprice out of harm’s way while a murderous madman continues to stalk the Winston family. The Earl is stoic, reclusive, a man who believes in rules and the reasons they exist, but what did the Earl get when he found Adrian Ravenspur and Machelle Winston at his niece’s cottage in Devon? Fire, kidnappings, madmen from the past, and then the ensuing chaos. The Earl of St. Clair does not like chaos. So what’s an earl to do when the woman he’s drawn to the most turns out to be nothing like he expected? The solution was simple. Fall in love with her, of course.
Meet Debra J Falasco
My name is Debra J. Falasco and I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, from short stories and poetry to college papers and expository writings. But my heart has always belonged to romance. After moving to Colorado from Texas, I met the man I was meant to be with. After marriage and one child, I left a long-term career to become a stay at home Mom. That was a dream come true but after two years, it was time to make another dream come true. I began working on a book and redeveloping characters I created over twenty years ago. Adrian and Machelle’s love had never been forgotten and with the telling of their story, I created a world of romance I can’t wait to share with readers!

In 54 BC, Egypt is in its death throes (5 years before Caesar steps foot in Egypt, 13 years before Antony) … the latest of many rise-and-falls due to its last nine Ptolemies. The first three were the empire builders: once Alexander the Great chased out the Persians, Ptolemies I, II, and IIII expanded the Egyptian empire and stuffed its treasury to bursting. The remaining Ptolemies from IV through XII, just spent the money like it had no end … which of course, was a mistake. To make matters worse, with no funds left in Egypt, Ptolemy XII borrowed enormous amounts of cash from Roman moneylenders, for bribes to put himself back on the throne … twice.
At 15 years old, this is the empire Cleopatra begins to rule without a formal title: bankrupt and under crippling debt. Now that her dad has secured the empire as a “good friend” of Rome, he’s done … and retires from political life to relax and only participate in pleasant religious activities. As a side effect of Ptolemy’s shenanigans, Cleopatra also has to deal with an embezzling Roman tax collector and pay the salaries and expenses of 2500 Romans stationed in Alexandria. She needs gold … and lots of it.
So far, this is historic fact, and the fiction starts with Cleopatra as she tries one scheme after another to dig Egypt out of its financial hole. She romantically bonds two scribes to priestesses to make sure they return to Alexandria after a mission 1000’s of miles away. She gets women in the tax collector’s house to work against him, and deals with the soldiers by rewarding Egyptian women to bend Roman loyalties. Anticipating an upcoming civil war, Cleopatra plays both sides of a political game between Pompey and Caesar (leveraging the women in their lives), and covertly attempts to extend her influence behind the scenes in Rome. Between all that, she spends a little too much time obsessing over notes she took from an interview with one of the scribes … stumbling into her own coming-of-age.
See how a woman is trained to snare a husband, without him realizing what’s happening. What kind of dance is it, exactly, that the scribe does to amuse his paramour in her bedroom? What could that scholar have possibly done to get him banned-for-life from a woman’s temple? Watch how a storytelling Macedonian warrior gets turned into a tongue-tied puppy at first glance of a friendly Kushite. Will the Romans ever figure out that they’re being manipulated by the entire female population of Alexandria? What are that priestess’ OTHER tattoos?
It’s a world where women call the shots and men do the grunt work. Star-crossed, separated, reunited, desired … people are just people, not puffed-up pompous elitist upstairs/downstairs snobs. They’re more like the knuckleheads that live in your neighborhood.
It’s a story about how people deal with unexpected situations and unintended consequences, and how sometimes the heart just wants what the heart wants.

Meet Marian Marion Kebab
I’m not very savvy about the social part of the internet. That’s why I don’t have Facebook or Twitter … or anything else. I’m nervous about the stories I’ve heard of trolling, and shaming, and blocking. I don’t like the idea of being censored. If you don’t like what I have to say, no one requires you to come to my site.
On the bright side I am familiar with internet research. Ten years ago, I couldn’t have written my books. They may seem like complete fluff, but I’ve researched personalities, events, and cultures in libraries all over the world. Libraries in Salamanca, Spain have many Latin and Greek copies of books like Galen’s that you can read online. The Vatican has many original documents digitized and easily accessible. The German library system has many books available online, so do British libraries. I’ve barely touched the papyrus repositories which are coming online as well. Anyone can access this information … and Google Translate works great on modern languages.
The “devil is in the details,” and I work hard to make sure the details in my canvas of Ptolemaic Egypt are correct … or at least “reasonable”.
A Christian tale of hope and redemption set in the world of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
When William Collins marries Charlotte Lucas, he thinks she perfectly matches the description of a minsters’ wife: domestic, pious, submissive.
Little does he know, his new bride has a mind of her own, and a heart to serve the “women of the night” that their narrow-minded community have deemed too tainted to associate with. Charlotte’s efforts to redeem them invokes the anger of their patroness, who threatens William’s clergy position if he cannot convince Charlotte to end her scandalous connection.
Their marriage, hanging by the threads of a fragile love, is pushed to the limit as Charlotte refuses to abandon her cause for the sake of comfort and security.
But worse still are the schemes of the wicked brothel owner, who will stop at nothing to keep the source of his profits- the harlots- under his control.
In a small town beset by prejudice, hypocrisy, and vice, it will take compassion, love, and the power of faith to rescue Charlotte’s friends from the clutches of evil and restore happiness to Charlotte and William.
(NOTE!! THIS BOOK IS A SWEET INSPIRATIONAL WITH A BIT HIGHER LEVEL OF ROMANTIC PASSION.)
She tampers with his life. He tampers with her heart. Love tampers with them both.
Desperate to escape an arranged marriage to a womanizer, twenty-two-year-old Maggie Mullaney flees New York for Virginia City, Nevada with her Aunt Liberty, two spunky suffragists intent on bettering the lives of women. Fresh out of nursing school, Maggie hopes to devote herself to serving others rather than just one man, a goal quickly affirmed when she encounters Blaze Donovan, a womanizing cowboy who both riles and rouses her pulse. But when Aunt Liberty’s parents’ house burns down, she and Maggie are coerced into staying at the ranch of Liberty’s ex-husband, Finn McShane, who just happens to be the uncle of the cocky cowboy Maggie had hoped to avoid.
If there’s one thing twenty-nine-year-old Blaze Donovan can’t abide, it’s respectable women who spout piety and prayer, so when he butts heads with perky Maggie Mullaney at St. Mary Louise Hospital, he wants to stay as far away from her as he possibly can. Unfortunately, she now lives in the bedroom next to his in his uncle’s ranch house, a revolting development that sends Blaze to The Ponderosa Saloon more than usual. But when Maggie interferes in Blaze’s life by converting his favorite “disrespectable” girl, Blaze is determined to make her pay. Only problem is—the price HE has to pay may be a little too steep for his heart.
