August 2009

John O'Bannon, ex-Chicago homicide detective, moved to the sultry riverfront of Vicksburg, Mississippi dreaming of a slow paced life in semi-retirement. He figured his days as a private eye taking pictures of cheating spouses for divorce lawyers and recovering lost family jewels would both pay the bills and allow time to enjoy life in the slow lane of southern country comfort. He thought it was business as usual when he agreed to meet the mysterious Southern belle Jeri Lynn Lee at a local eatery. He was wrong, on all counts.

At the behest of one of the local gentry, Judge Horatio Robert Lee, and with the help of Hushi Humma, a sexy and fascinating half Choctaw Indian woman, John is forced to confront past failures and unlock the secrets of Deer Run Falls. He must choose one, dangerous lust or the promise of love, no matter how deadly the consequences

 

Teresa Holloway, freelance reporter and Pulitzer anointed, has set off on the White Swan for the cruise of her life in pursuit of the story of her career. A story of pirate’s booty and a modern day shipping magnate with more than just skeletons in his closet.

Nash Fross, shipping magnate and dreamer, takes more satisfaction from the tomes of Mark Twain than from quarterly reports and bottom lines. His greatest joy in life is the White Swan – the biggest riverboat ever built – and he has a secret.

The bloodline of Nash Fross proves even more dangerous than the eddies and currents of the wide Mississippi, and Teresa Holloway’s piloting skills are put to the test. But charting a course through the black waters of her own heart proves even more dangerous.

These two are caught up in a pirate’s tale where something more valuable than gold is at stake. The ocean where the battle takes place is a past well hidden and neither gives quarter in their quest for the prize… Love

 

 

The Madame Ambassador, Princess Peenzan Fanston of the planet Meline, is on a serious and grave mission.  Her planet is under attack by the deadliest and most feared fighters in the galaxy – Zandill death warriors – and she’s come to plead her case before the wealthiest and strongest world of all, The United Corporation of Earth.  Well, that was the plan.   

 

Sergeant Hillsborough, known simply as Hill by his fellow troops in the United Corporation Marine Corps, has been given the lowliest assignment a member of the elite corps fighting force could receive, diplomatic protection in one of the safest places in the galaxy: the flagship of the Director of the United Corporation of Earth.  Or so he thought.

 

Bast, goddess of all Meline, has other ideas.  Aside from saving Meline from a Machiavellian plot hatched in the hallowed halls of the very United Corporation of Earth Princess Peenzan hopes to appeal to, they both must face the unknown abyss of undeniable predestined love.

 

In a time when light speed is measured by multiples of hundreds, and venturing to a faraway planet is as easy and quick as stepping into a transporter, the dangers of saving an entire race of people pales in comparison to understanding the who and why of finding love in all the wrong places.

The plan was simple. Evacuate the entire population of a planet orbiting around a dying sun to a terraformed world created just for them by the Galactic League of Planets. At least it was simple until Princess Anleen of Bastina decided the biggest and fastest space vessel ever built could be put to better use. She needed to recover the key to the ancient map. It didn’t matter that the most important relic of the Bastinan people was the good luck charm of an earthling who fancied himself a pirate on the high seas of space and traded in only two things--gold and women. Fair maidens when possible.

 

When Captain Dirk Roberts, ex-Corporate Space Fleet colonel, now independent space freight hauler--a man who doesn’t always have his papers or his life in order--seeks safe haven at the doomed planet Aznate, he’s only looking for a hot shower, a drink or three at the last spacer bar on the edge of known civilization, and repairs for his ship. What he finds instead is more intriguing than any tale of Blackbeard’s adventures and more beguiling than the fair maiden Guinevere of Arthurian legend.

 

From a hijacked ark to a plundered heart to the writing of the final Chapter in the ancient children’s fairytale of the legend of Bastina, only Haark, the god of the Bastinan people, knows how the story will end... But that doesn’t stop Princess Anleen from trying to rewrite it.

 

Amid the towering monuments of Manhattan’s concrete jungle, Pamela Wilkinson wasn’t looking for a white picket fence and roses.  She didn’t yearn for silk sheets and gentle caresses.  She wanted something else.  Something different.  Something good girls aren’t supposed to crave and good boys know nothing about.  She wanted more than the pull of rope against her wrists, the smell of leather in her nose, and the loud clang of the dungeon door slamming shut on her heart.  She wanted the forbidden dance of master and submissive.  

 

Horatio Sloan, wealthy eccentric and not easily denied, demanded more from Pamela than just her body. From a small art gallery in SoHo to the cold marble floor of his study, he would take from her more than her soul, demand more than just her heart, and possess her darkest, most secret place…
