  I’m working on an exciting new series called Magic, about the big and boisterous Tremaine family who are descended from the wizard of Camelot. Each sibling will come into a unique power, but only when they meet and fall in love with another who carries the magic gene.

The worst happened — Tammy Tremaine has been locked away from danger during her family’s struggle with the Clan of Morgan Le Fay. How could she ever find the One who shares the Merlin gene, the destined love who will unlock her magic? Just when she has given up hope Tammy sees a young man ringed in fire during a confrontation with the Clan. She knows in her blood and her bones that her Destiny is a member of the Clan. She must reject him as an enemy. But can she?

Star-crossed lovers — Thomas has been locked away in a monastery since he was nine, cultivated by his mentor, Morgan, for a mysterious purpose. Now she has called him to the Clan compound in order to fulfill it. His course is set—until he sees a redhead across a parking lot. She’s one of Morgan’s enemies, yet suddenly she is very important to him. He escapes the Compound in search of Tammy Tremaine.

Let's not be Romeo and Juliet — Morgan needs Thomas for a ceremony performed when the comet Galahad joins the Big Dipper to make, for one instant, a perfect Pentacle in the sky. She’s planning an apocalypse and Thomas will play a crucial role. Tammy makes a plan to dodge both Morgan and her family to find out if she and Thomas can survive their differences. But the world is about to change. Will their story end in tragedy, or can they find, in all this chaos, a magic moment of love?


The Ghost rebels — The Merlin gene has come alive in his brothers and sisters, giving them a magic power when they find their destined mate. Lanyon is afraid he's next. Why would he want to share their destiny? The family is under siege. The Clan’s powers are increasing. His father, once invincible, is in no position to lead them. So he rebels. He haunts the L.A. club scene, appearing out of nowhere to play music no one can forget.

But can he avoid Destiny? — The minute he sees a beautiful blond girl and feels the incredible tug he's heard his brothers and sisters describe, he knows he must resist her at all costs.

Star-power — Greta Falk is trying to control her own future, having sued her stage mother for emancipation when she was fifteen. But does she want a role in the next billion-dollar movie franchise? Or does she want to study the stars that have always fascinated her — the ones in the sky?

Destinies Collide — When Lanyon feels obligated to rescue Greta from the paparazzi, the only safe place to take her is home to his family. Right where he doesn't want to be. Now he’s drawn into everything he’s been trying to escape. He can't resist Greta. And she may hold the key to the Tremaine future. The Clan wants what he and Greta know. Can they make peace with their Destiny and embrace a future together?


Kemble Tremaine is thirty-seven. He’s never going to get magic like the rest of his family. The Merlin gene has passed him by. No true love, no magic power to help the family in the fight against the descendants of Morgan Le Fay. Even his father agrees it’s time to just get on with his life. Since it doesn’t matter who he marries, he asks his sister Drew’s best friend, Jane, to rescue her from a horrible home life.

Jane Butler has loved Kemble since she was twelve years old. He’s not marrying her for love. She may not be beautiful or talented like the Tremaine family, but she hopes she can make him comfortable.

But comfort is not on the menu for the Tremaines. Drew has been having visions of tragedy. And before Jane and Kemble can really discover each other, the family finds one of Merlin’s precious artifacts, meant to increase the power of those with magic. Morgan and her Clan are not far behind. Can Kemble and Jane carve out a life in the face of danger, and even death?



Keelan Tremaine wants her magic, now. Two of her siblings have theirs. Just Kee's luck she's fallen in love with someone who doesn’t have magic in his DNA and who's off limits anyway, in so many ways. Devin hasn't got a chance of magic. He's the adopted son who's never felt he belonged to the family. Now he harbors a secret that's driving him to leave for good. Under siege from members of the Clan, the Tremaine family searches for the Talisman that can save them. Devin knows he’s the one who can claim it for them. And only Kee can keep him from making the ultimate sacrifice.

  Aren't some of the best things in life unexpected? Events sometimes ambush you and sweep you off in a new direction. You get an unexpected job offer. . . the jerk who asked you out turns out to have wonderful best friend. . . You know what I mean. Life surprises you, and you just have to go with it.

Well, it happens to writers, too. Those surprise characters and ideas that pop out of nowhere can be so much fun you just have to follow wherever they lead you.

In fact, I was ambushed into writing the DaVinci Time Travel Series. I was writing ONE WITH THE SHADOWS, when a secondary character, Donnatella, the powerful vampire mother of my hero, swept in and captivated me. Her life was poisoned by regret that she didn't make her one true love, a barbarian slave in Caligula's Rome, into a vampire too, so they could share the ages together. I just loved Donnatella. She was just the kind of mother everyone wants (except the vampire part.) So I decided in ONE WITH THE DARKNESS to let her go back and try to rectify her mistake. How? Donnatella's friend, Leonardo DaVinci, built her a time machine.

Leonardo's machine was — unexpected. I decided to make it the core of my next series. Leonardo's wonderful machine is passed from heroine to heroine, each using it to find renewal in her life in surprising ways.

So, I was surprised by Donnatella, by the time machine, by the fact that I wanted to write a series that allowed for contemporary setting for a change, and which could have vampires in it. . . or not. My characters are always surprised by the turns their lives take, too. Each of my heroines makes desperate decisions as they fight for meaning and love in her life.

A labyrinth of conspiracy is rising around her, and Holland's life is about to change forever. Very soon there will be .....NO MORE LIES.


No More Lies was a finalist for the Rita Award.

All of the elements that made Squires's previous sci-fi romantic suspense novel, Body Electric, such an eye-popping read manifest themselves here — a feverish romance, a pervasive sense of danger and an exhilarating chase full of adrenaline-fueled encounters. This time, however, Squires shifts her focus from the computer sciences to the biological sciences, deftly tackling the ethical issues surrounding genetic research and skewering both religious and scientific fanaticism. ...few romantic suspense authors know how to write a chase sequence as thrillingly as Squires.

DANEGELD (July 2001)

It was the silver the Saxons would pay to keep the dreaded Viking marauders from their shores. It was the price a half-Irish beauty would pay to keep the murderer of her father and mother at bay, to keep the powerful magic of her forebears from overwhelming her, to keep the stirrings of her womanhood in check. It was all that one mighty Viking would give to remain to a man, to be whole, to retain the respect of the jarls and the might of his sword arm. It was DANEGELD. In England's Dark Ages, sometimes it was all that stood between what a person was and what he should be. And it was the only thing in the way of true love.


Danegeld has won regional contests sponsored by the Romance Writers of America all over the United States, including California, Washington, Utah. Texas, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Ohio.
