Until last year Wendy Darlin was a full-time real estate agent for Miami Beach millionaires. Then she met Roger Jolley, world famous archaeologist, Johnny Depp look-alike, and at times the most irritating person on the planet.

Join her as she travels the globe in search of lost treasures and antiquities. She’s been told her life is like the movie Romancing the Stone but at times she feels more like Indiana Jones with boobs.

WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS ~ Book One 

Real estate agent for Miami Beach millionaires, Wendy Darlin, clashes with “SEC Investigator” and world famous archaeologist, Roger Jolley. He follows her out to sea on a mega-yacht owned by Charlie Hook, a Ponzi swindler on the run from federal agents and angry investors. Despite her fear of water, she finds herself a tomb raider on the Caribbean one step ahead of modern day pirates. Will she find the Lost Boys? Will she escape Hook’s clutches? And whom will she find on Nevis Island? Oh… and is Roger a good kisser?

LONDON BROIL ~ Book Two 

When we last saw Wendy Darling and Roger Jolley in WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS, they were hot on the trail of Egyptian icons stolen from the British Museum. Wendy is now in a frantic race against time and a murderer as she searches for the last Lost Boy hidden somewhere in London while a killer heat wave invades the city. Wendy is held captive over a fish ‘n’ chips shop while Roger’s life is threatened. Can Wendy escape her captors, rescue Roger, and find the missing Lost Boy before the murderer strikes again?

CAIRO CAPER ~ Book Three 

Part-time tomb raider and full-time real estate broker, Wendy Darlin joins her lover, archaeologist Roger Jolley, in a quest for Cleopatra’s tomb. All they have to do is get from Cairo to the Temple of Taporisi Magna alive. Armed only with a couple of hijacked ashtrays and faced with a trek across the blazing Sahara desert can Wendy out-maneuver Russian oligarchs, a dozen Dark Force mercenaries, and Roger’s chubby ex-girlfriend in time to find the tomb and seal it before chaos erupts in Egypt?




Here's what

Fans are saying


Three in one – Wow!

If you like your thrillers to be fast moving, full of action, and with a surprise ending, this is for you. If you like your heroines warm hearted, brave, with a desire for justice but with occasional foolhardiness, this is for you. If you like a writer to be witty, skilful with words, and able to throw in the odd touch of enchantment in her descriptive passages, this is for you.

(Mind you, you need to be happy with a fair bit of humour of the type not suitable for the original audience of Peter Pan or Alice, such as the recurring joke about Hook's UpUGo, which I won't spoil for you.)

And if you like an ongoing touch of romance for your heroine, with various candidates for her affections, and a bit of a mystery as to whom she'll end up with, resolved beautifully at the end, this also is for you.


I love the main character, and some of the lines she comes out with! Very funny book, great characters, a light read. Adventure, romance, and mystery.

I like the romantic story line. Annoyance, that builds into gradual attraction, that builds into colleagues, that builds into a smoldering desire, that keeps getting interrupted....it's fun!


The action takes the reader on a roller-coaster of 'fun': not fun in the normal sense, but a romp from start to finish, whether it be on a ship, in London, or swaying on the back of a camel in the desert.

Barbara has a way of describing and setting scenes which take you right into the action and you can actually feel the heart-beat of the story.

 

Author Bio

Barbara Silkstone


I enjoy doing playful things with language, blending two distinct words to create a new word. If I'm laughing out loud when I'm writing, then I know I've hit the mark. I laugh so loud while I'm writing that the neighbors think I'm having wild parties. I'm not. I live in South Florida where I survive on buttered popcorn and fried chicken... extra crispy..
