Amy Corwin
Amy Corwin has been writing for a number of years and retired from a career as an enterprise systems administrator in the computer industry so she could write full time. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America and is a charter member of the Romance Writers of America.

She writes sweet Regency romances, mysteries, and paranormal romances. Most of her books feature a touch of mayhem and murder since she found that killing off at least one of the characters is a highly effective way of encouraging the ones that lived to toe the plot line.

During her spare time, Amy cooks and gardens, having won many awards at local rose shows for her Old Garden and English roses. Amy is a birdwatcher and is generally fascinated with nature, having gotten her very first Peterson’s Field Guide when she was just six years old.

She got the idea for “Honeymoon with Death” while reading an Englishman’s diary that had traveled through Europe after the Napoleonic wars’ end and wondered what if the man ran into a situation where a fellow traveler was murdered. And since Knighton and Prudence got engaged in her previous novel, she decided to have them travel through Europe during their honeymoon and run into some trouble.

“The Vital Principle” is the first novel in the “Second Sons” series and was released in the year 2011. When Lord Crowley sends for cynical inquiry agent Knighton Gaunt, he is more than happy to take on the simple assignment. All he has to do is go to a séance and expose Prudence Barnard, the spiritualist, as a charlatan that’s taking advantage of Crowley’s mom.

But instead of proving Miss Barnard’s a fake, Gaunt’s made to look the fool when Crowley gets murdered after the séance has ended. Apparently, this attractive spiritualist isn’t the only guest that has mastered the art of sleight of hand. Whoever it was the murdered Crowley was able to poison his brandy without anybody noticing and act with appropriate concern after.

The horrified guests quickly close ranks against Miss Barnard and accuse her of murder. She’s the only stranger in the house, except for Gaunt, and she had argued with Crowley just the day before. It sounds reasonable to everybody except Miss Barnard. Gaunt isn’t so sure, either.

Then the killer strikes again, and Gaunt has to use all his skill to expose the truth before yet another member of their house party gets killed.

“A Rose Before Dying” is the second novel in the “Second Sons” series and was released in the year 2011. The only family that Charles has got left is Sir Edward, his uncle. When Sir Edward gets accused of killing his mistress, Charles is determined to prove that his uncle is innocent. Unfortunately, the only clues left behind are just a few enigmatic roses and a note threatening to murder some unidentified victim unless the riddle’s solved.

Ariadne struggles to make a success out of the gardening business that was left to her by her dad, and when Charles Vance, an earl, tells her that the stranger’s life depends upon her identification of a rose, she becomes torn. She wants to help him out, however if she’s wrong, somebody could die and it would ruin her Rosarian reputation.

The stakes are rather high, yet Ariadne reluctantly agrees to help this attractive earl. While the pair plunge deeper into this mystery, they have to fight distraction as well, that of their growing love if they ever hope to keep a murderer from killing again.

“The Dead Man’s View” is the third novel in the “Second Sons” series and was released in the year 2013. When Pru Barnard, a lonely spinster, finds that she isn’t alone but has got a family in a distant cousin, she is thrilled, especially when she’s invited to come visit him. Pru, even though she was initially excited, gets caught up in a maelstrom of seething tensions. Emotions erupt when her cousin’s found hanged, with his body dangling just outside of his bedroom window.

The authorities call his death suicide, despite the fact that her cousin was afraid of heights and wouldn’t ever tie a noose around his neck and toss himself out a window. All the evidence obviously points to murder.

Pru, who is desperate to find out the truth, sends out for Knighton Gaunt, her old friend. However even Knighton gets blocked by family members at each turn that seem to prefer the scandal that comes with a suicide to an investigation into their darkest secrets.

However Knighton and Pru aren’t going to be deterred by the increasingly violent threats that they get. They’re willing to risk it all, including their growing love for each other, in order to expose the murderer of Pru’s cousin and her final hope for a family and home.

“The Illusion of Desire” is the fourth novel in the “Second Sons” series and was released in the year 2014. Captain Nicholas Ainsley, an inquiry agent, needs a challenge so that he can escape his crippling nightmares of war. However he is not ready for the intricacies of his first assignment. Somebody’s killed an earl, and Nicholas has to tread very carefully to avoid getting tangled up in the web of subterfuge and lies that shroud this victim’s rather privileged life.

The evidence points to Kathyrn, who was the earl’s mistress. Rumors spread that the earl dumped her and while she was enraged, she murdered him with the jeweled knife he had given her as a present. When questioned, Kathryn keeps her mouth shut, even while the victim’s family begins demanding her arrest. Despite her stubbornness, Nicholas is still attracted to her and struggles to keep his distance. His instincts whisper that the obvious answer might not be the correct one, and ignores the family’s threats, wanting to find out the truth.

However the evidence against her keeps increasing, and Nicholas is caught between his desire for the lovely woman and all the facts. If he’s unable to prove that she’s innocent, she’s gonna hang, and he’ll lose the woman that has turned his nightmares into dreams of love.
