His life changes when lightning strikes…

Lightning Strike

For generations Levi’s family had guarded a sacred glen in the mountains.  Still far from man this isolated area was a favorite spot of his grandfather.  Levi grew up listening to his tales and fell in love without ever having stepped foot there.

Now Levi’s family, led by his grandmother, wanted to sell the land.  With only his grandfather and Levi against it, Levi has to prove to the rest of the family why they needed to continue their guardianship.  Believing in his grandfather’s tales despite himself, Levi went armed with his camera and his well-known expertise behind the lens and headed out for proof.

Providing that proof and protecting the secrets of the glen from the world, Gaia needs to convince Levi to continue that protection.  Daphnaie, the embodiment of his every dream, is sent to show him why, stealing his heart in the process to save her world.

Excerpt:

Levi thought the lightning had burned her clothes away, though there was really no evidence of clothing to begin with. She couldn’t have just been out in the woods with nothing on. Climbing trees no less! Her skin looked as if it had been in contact with fire, yet she herself was not burned, just slightly pink, most of the damage to her hair, which looked as if it had burned around the edges.
The lightning strike had been different, but then so had the storm. Both had seemed almost alive, deliberate. Maybe his grandpa had been right after all.
Leaving her for a moment, Levi took his sleeping bag from his knapsack and laid it out beyond the fire damaged grass, making sure to unzip it to be able to put her in it. Checking her limbs, he didn’t feel any breaks. He tried not to notice how shapely those limbs were.
Ignoring his libido, Levi checked her over as he had been trained. It didn’t matter how long he had been away from the battlefield, Levi’s instincts kicked in, checking the vitals of the wounded woman in front of him. It was usually a man though, his thoughts drifting to the images he’d rather forget. Forcibly bringing his mind back to the present, Levi continued his assessment. She needed him now. An undressed female was bound to present him unexpected problems. An attractive female, as this little bundle was, presented a whole different problem that was knocking insistently at the buttons of his 501’s.

Redemption The Abcynians, Book 5

Blurb

 

They have lived for centuries. An ancient, secretive race of were-panthers faced

with near extinction. To assure their survival they must conceal their identities

and abilities, while protecting mankind from an unimaginable, primordial evil.

Redemption: The Abcynians, Book III

Her ship overtaken by pirates, Jocelyn Kincaid is rescued by Captain Don

Adriano de Montoya. Initially afraid of the privateer sailors call El Fantasma, she

discovers he is not the ghost some have portrayed him to be. He claims to be part

of a mythical race—and her mate! Fascinated, she’s brokenhearted when he

makes plans to sail her home to Boston.

Haunted by the memory of his murdered family, Adriano has sworn to ruin the

man he holds responsible for their deaths. When he unexpectedly finds his mate

aboard an enemy ship, he saves her life. Despite their unprecedented attraction,

he keeps his distance until he learns a secret about Jocelyn that could potentially

endanger her and Abcynian kind.

Determined to keep the woman he loves safe, his mission changes. But when she

discovers the truth he’s guarding, will she forgive him, or set him on a path of

destruction?

Author Bio

My love for storytelling began when I created my first fictional characters,

mischievous, identical twin brothers, in kindergarten. Years later, I started to

write, completing my first handwritten manuscript when I was in middle school. I

confess, the heroine was a cross between a contemporary Laura Ingalls Wilder

and Nancy Drew, but when I wrote ‘the end’ I knew I had more stories to tell.

Of course, life intervened, but whether I was in high school, college, working a

variety of jobs to pay for my degree in History and Secondary Education, I was

always writing and reading romances. Finally, I joined RWA and the New

England Chapter, becoming an author with Ellora’s Cave until the publisher

closed its doors. Now, I am writing under my own name and loving every minute

of it.

I truly enjoy hearing from readers. Please let me know what you think at

Oliva wouldn’t say she was paranoid. Maybe she read a few too many books on true crime, but it was all in the name of solid research. She was comfortable and cautious after a tragic event in her past. It worked for her.

 

At least it had, until she met Aiden Latimer. He was tall, muscular and did that eyebrow arch thing like a pro. The billionaire spotted her, and her life has been anything but comfortable ever since.

He was bossy and annoying. He even has a problem with her cussing. He’s done his own research on her and she’s convinced he even bugged her house.

She wasn’t prepared for her attraction to him, much less his ardent attention. Their worlds seemed so far apart that she was ready to end it on day one.

But things never go quite like you plan with an alpha male type.

Now, she’s being bossed around by Aiden, trying not to get into trouble with her best friend and dealing with a psycho, stalker ex-boyfriend!

The question is, when things finally do hit the fan, will she face her fears or run?

It was inevitable that Julia would run into Holden Saunders again. The one person she dreaded seeing and wanted to see the most.

 

He was still as gorgeous as the first time they had met. Muscular, tall, with his golden brown eyes that said more than what he spoke. They’re opposites in so many ways. He was closed off, and so utterly irritating the last time she was around him. He was rude and bossy but the one man she had been dreaming about for the last year.

 

Now that she’s back in Lakefield, Julia is getting to know the real Holden. He’s resorting to blackmail, physical dominance and isn’t listening to her protests. He’s the one that tempts her with his vulgar mouth and makes her body sing like no other man.

 

She can’t decide whether to punch him or kiss him. Maybe both.

 

They’re up against stalkers, the media, and a lot of bizarre circumstances as she makes a decision about her music career.

 

But he’s making his intent crystal clear: he’ll protect her, possess her, and make her beg.

 

Everyone hides something. Julia should know. She’s been trying to hide from her past for the last year. But this troublesome, mischievous man, may not let her hide any longer.

 

 

**Full-length standalone romance. 70,000+ words. No cheating, or cliffhangers with a Happily Ever After! Suggested 18+.

Everyone has their breaking point.

 

Kaitlyn has had a crush on Dr. Logan Matthews for months. His dark hair, blue eyes and fit body are just some of the reasons why he’s the perfect guy.

 

The problem is he seems to want nothing to do with Kaitlyn. When they have bumped into each other, he’s gruff, overbearing and he seems to cause the worst luck for her.

 

Until one day when everything seems to go unnaturally wrong in her life.

 

Now he’s sending naughty pictures, playing with her, and acting more interested than ever. Although her friends find the encounters they’ve had funny and her best friend tells her to just have fun, there’s something confusing about his attention.

 

He says they’re just being friendly but they’re moving into the “more than friendly” zone. Everything should be great. Right?

 

Things aren’t always what people see on the surface. The greatest obstacles they face may be the ones that neither of them see coming.

Andi had it all figured out.

 

She had a sweet job for the summer working at a luxury hotel and her brother was happy. That’s all she really needed and that’s all she wanted to focus on.

 

Her horrible past was way behind her and she was making a better life for them both. Even if it was built on a lie, it was better than the one they had. She gave up chasing her dreams long ago.

 

She would keep their secret. To protect her brother. To protect herself.

 

Then he showed up.

 

He’s out to catch a criminal and asking for her help.

 

Brock, the genius — He wasn’t modest about it.

Brock, the incredibly inquisitive — He wasn’t going to give up.

Brock, the guy with the GQ looks and bad boy reputation — He wasn’t denying it.

 

He was asking for the truth about her past that she couldn’t give. If she told him it could risk everything.

 

But Brock is in this to win and it’s hard to deny those stormy green eyes and kinky whispers in her ear. Chasing her seems to be his new priority and he’s playing dirty. If he caught her what would he do?

 

He may be digging into Andi’s life but this controlling and complex alpha male has some secrets of his own.

 

Lies and secrets. Everyone told them and had them. How far would they go to keep them?

When you’ve pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen…

Willow’s Cry

Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.

Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.

Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED!

Excerpt:

Alex dialed Levi, but got no answer. Cell phone service being notoriously bad in the area, it wasn’t a surprise. Levi was probably just checking in. Alex offered him his cabin, but Levi preferred camping. Discharged from the Army, Levi returned with an aversion to being enclosed.

Alex understood. Some things were better left unspoken. No need to sit and whine about what couldn’t be changed. Levi’s pictures exposed the ugliness he’d seen. Levi’s inability to stay within four walls for long without becoming disturbed evidence enough. Alex could see the winds weaving around Levi, calming him, the earth rumbling beneath his feet, trying to sooth him.

Not even among his family could Alex admit what he could sense. If and when Levi needed to talk, he would listen. Preferable over a couple of shots.

Slipping on sweats, Alex began to strip the beds. With an armload of sheets, Alex started another load. Grabbing a clean set, he made up a bunk. His muscles ached. His eyelids drooped, heavy against his eyes.

Alex checked the doors before he crashed. Locking them not so much against human intruders, but animals. A strong wind occasionally blew open the door, inviting in those four legged critters also looking for a warm place to stay. Waking up to a raccoon in the station not a way he wanted to spend the morning. Groaning, Alex sprawled across the bed, tired eyes closing, sinking into the welcoming darkness. The sounds around him faded away.

One night she’ll never forget!

One night he doesn’t remember – One night she’ll never forget!

A Sailor’s Delight

Lee Santiago went from one mistake to the next. When a friend dies, exposing his mortality all too well Lee’s family steps in to force him to make something of himself. He can’t be a party boy all his life and if he wants to sign his life away, it will be on the dotted line. He doesn’t even have time to say goodbye. Anyway it was only a drunken one night stand.

Isabelle was always the good girl. Until that night. When the man she’d always worshiped finally noticed her. She couldn’t say no. She’s heartsick to find out he doesn’t remember it. Isabelle’s life crashes around her when the results are in. The truth comes out and she has nowhere to turn. She looks for Lee, but he’s gone.

Will he be man enough to step up and face the consequences when he learns the truth?

 

Excerpt:

“I’ve never seen you at a party before. I thought you were a good little girl.” His teasing voice sent thrills throughout her body.

“Today’s my birthday.” Isabelle snuggled closer to him. His body seemed to surround hers.

“So, does that make you legal today?”

Isabelle nodded vigorously then groaned. Her head swam from the movement. Maybe, just maybe she’d had a bit much to drink. Lee would take care of her though. He’d promised.

“But not legal for drinking yet.”

Isabelle pouted then sniffed.

“So what? Most of the people here aren’t twenty-one.”

“Doesn’t make it right.”

Isabelle craned her head around to look at him. Surprised at the hard note in his voice.

“But you’ve been drinking since you were in high school.”

“Again, doesn’t make it right. So, you decided to cut loose now that you’re an adult?”

The small smirk at the side of his mouth fascinated her. Somehow the tip of her finger made its way there. His lips were strong but soft, warm against the softness of her finger. The scruff around his mouth prickled her finger as he rubbed his face against it.

“Don’t play with fire, little girl.” He nipped the tip of her finger as he winked at her, sending a zing through her body.

Isabelle giggled. Normally she thought herself out of Lee’s league, but tonight that didn’t bother her in the least. She’d had too many jello shots to care. Snuggled in his arms, his hands on her affected her more than any bit of alcohol could. Combining them gave her a warm glow.

Isabelle wiggled, the trail of his fingertips tickling her neck and circling her ear. She could feel her nipples tightening, glad for her push up bra. It made her boobs look fabulous, but was thick enough to hide her body’s reaction.

Lee chuckled in her ear, sending warmth pooling low in her belly. Isabelle caught her breath as he trailed his finger down her breast unerringly circling her nipple.

“Cat got your tongue, little girl?”

One grenade changes their lives

A Saint’s Salvation

Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he fell in love with.

Crossing paths again brings their emotions to a full boil. A coincidence that will have them both reaching for their dreams.

 

Excerpt:

“Thanks. Where are you heading?” Doc settled back in her seat, putting her crutches next to her with a sigh.

“I’m heading home for Christmas. Wisconsin. What about you?” Nick moved to get out of the aisle. He was in the row behind her. Nick stood leaning over his seat to continue their conversation. Nick blinked, his attention captured as he looked down. Doc was wearing a very pretty, low cut sweater. From this angle he had a perfect view of her red lacy bra and the curvy flesh it hugged. Nick reached down and quickly adjusted himself. He’d been at attention since he hugged her.

“I needed a break. I’m visiting Chicago, heading to see a VA doctor there about a new prosthetic, before I go back home.”

“Home being where?”

“San Diego.” Doc looked up at him and glared when she saw where his gaze was. “What do you think you are doing?” She snapped her fingers in front of his nose, breaking his line of sight. Nick grinned unabashedly at her.

“Admiring the view.”

A dragon’s most desired treasure…

A Dragon’s Treasure

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.

Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.

Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.

 

Excerpt:

She would make a magnificent dragon. Wrapped in all the gold he could give her, her flesh peeking from beneath. She was his.

“Kai.”

He looked over at Ellen, lifting a brow in inquiry.

“Don’t mess with my cousin.”

He grinned. “I’m not. She’s my mate.” Ellen’s eyes widened while Breccan and Maxwell snickered. His eyes wandered down the hall she’d flounced out. She might have meant to look fierce, but her bouncy blonde hair and petite size negated that. Kai wanted nothing more than to follow her and claim her. Her scent was even stronger in the enclosed space than wafting on the breeze. He’d bet she wore a dragon’s mark somewhere on her luscious body. He couldn’t wait to hunt for it.

“Holy cow! Are you sure?” Ellen grinned. “That’s great!”

Breccan chimed in. “By her reaction, I’d say not so great.” He sported a big grin on his face. “Looks like Kai will have a battle on his hands.”

Maxwell’s sly twist of his lips showed he was enjoying the situation too.

Kai glared at them. Damn wolves. They were a pain. He could see the colors in the kitchen change as his dragon attempted to get out. A little barbeque wolf was a tasty snack. The rumble of agreement by his dragon made him smirk. He couldn’t hurt those two, no matter how aggravating they were. Breccan was the only reason Ellen didn’t spend her days wrapped in fear any more. His dragon reluctantly settled down.
