Excerpt

 

I’ve seen many people die. Friends, family. My husband. Tried to help them, but … it was painful not being able to ease their suffering. And when you’re hungry, well, scavenging isn’t just for rodents.”

Good point,” he grunted as he stood up. “I have to take a leak if you want to point me to the bathroom.”

Oh, um, sure,” she mumbled, embarrassed.

She helped him off the bed, keenly aware that he stood naked. He glanced down at himself.

Got something for me to put on?”

Oh, yes,” she squeaked, then cleared her throat. “In the bedroom is a closet full of men’s clothes.”

He nodded and, holding his bandaged side, headed off to the bathroom. She couldn’t help but watch as he slowly walked away. Much to her shock, he didn’t close the door and a moment later, she heard him urinating. Her inner voice told her to stop looking, but she couldn’t seem to take her gaze off his muscular behind, as well as the tattoos on his back. So many colors and designs, and she had to admit, he fascinated her in a very improper way.

Taking a deep breath, she closed her eyes to break her fascination. She had to keep reminding herself who she was and who he was, and that he wasn’t going to be around for very long.

You okay?”

His question jolted her and she opened her eyes to have his muscular chest up close and personal. Her heartrate skyrocketed. As her gaze traveled upward, tracing over every inch of tattooed skin, she determined there was something very interesting about Jesse Krider. Something that made her skin prickle with awareness and her tummy do a funny little flip-flop.

I found some sweatpants to wear,” he said.

She swallowed thickly, not daring to look down, even though she very much wanted to do that. A shred of propriety still lingered in her conscience.

That’s, um, fine.”

He took a step closer. On one hand that relieved her of the pressure urging her to look down. However, it now brought him close enough that she could reach out and touch his skin if she was so inclined. And she was fast learning that she felt so inclined to do this that she had to curl her fingers into a fist to prevent them from having a mind of their own.

About the Author


I began reading my mom’s Harlequin Presents in the fifth grade, and from the first story I knew I wanted to write romance novels. I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

Dicen Burke had it all.  As lead singer in the world famous rock band,
Dark Army, the world lay at his feet.  But the path to super stardom
warred with a painful past and during a performance the demons haunting him
finally descended.  Unable to stop the self-destructive path of alcohol
and drugs, when he fell, he fell hard.

He wakes up in a world he doesn’t know.  The Twenty-first
century rocker is now in the 1920’s, lost and bewildered.
He’s taken in by Juliet Fox, a beautiful woman trying to be a positive
influence in her brother’s wild lifestyle among the Hollywood Motion
Picture elite.

Dicen does his best to adapt, and with Juliet by his side, he discovers a
world that offers him a clean slate.  But when he’s pulled back
to the present, separated by time from the one person that gives him a
reason to live, will he find a way to push past his demons as well as find
Juliet again?

Excerpt

              “Hey you,” a soft voice commanded.  “Open your eyes please”

He tried to obey, struggling to push past the lingering darkness that clung to him like a second skin.  God, he felt horrible.

“That’s it,” she soothed.  “Open your eyes.  Look at me.”
Finally, he managed to raise his eyelids.  An angel leaned over him, staring into his eyes.  She smiled at him so he smiled back.  He had always thought it would be demons that would come collect him when he died so it amazed him that heaven was calling.

“Ah, a set of beautiful baby blues,” she murmured, stroking his cheek.  “Hello, handsome.”

He opened his mouth to say something but the words wouldn’t come.  His tongue felt swollen, dry.  He forced himself to swallow to try to get some saliva flowing.  

“W-what happened?”

She cocked her head.  “Bad hooch I’m thinking.  Gotta be careful of certain juice joints.  Come,” she said, holding out her hand.  “Let’s get you sitting upright.”

He hadn’t realized he’d been lying down but as she helped him up, he realized the halo around her head had been nothing more but the flickering of a street light accentuating the midnight hue of her hair.  When he was vertical once more, he finally saw all of the woman’s features.  Short bobbed hair held back by a headband made of crystal beads while dark eyes watched him from under thin, perfectly arched eyebrows.  Her lips were a cupid’s bow, painted a deep red.  Her skin a flawless pale shade that contrasted sharply with her heavily made up eyes.

“Like what you see?” she asked.

He blinked.  “I always like my fans.  Where am I?”

One of those thin eyebrows arched.  “That hooch must’ve really made you balled up.  You’re off Hollywood Boulevard, of course, belly up in an alley.”

He looked around, completely baffled.  How the hell did he get here?  Where was the stage?  The screaming fans?  Kieron, Van and Tony?

“Do you have a name, handsome?”

“Yeah, sorry.  I’m Dicen Burke.”

He waited.  He waited for the name to sink in, for her eyes to widen, for her to begin batting her eyes in an attempt to flirt her way into his bed.

“Juliet,” she said.  “Juliet Fox.  I was looking for my brother, Thayer, and figured I’d find him upchucking out here and instead I find a keen big six.  Say, you’re no drugstore cowboy are you?”

“Excuse me?”  Her lack of a response to his name, along with slang he didn’t understand, threw him.

“You know, a guy that hangs around street corners looking to pick up ladies.  Just so we’re clear on the matter, I ain’t that kind of girl,” she informed him, the smile on her face lessening the harshness of her tone.  “Have you seen another man out here, by chance, throwing up?”

She confused him.  He shook his head and then wished he hadn’t when it throbbed.  “God, I need an aspirin.”

Can Liza find her place in a lawless world?
When Liza Trent decided to become a mail order bride out west, she never imagined her fiancé would die before she arrived. His death places her in debt, and the only way to pay off the money is by auctioning off her virginity against her will. When she’s rescued by two handsome men, she mistakenly thinks they’re assassins. Despite her reservations, she accepts their protection.
Only the two men, Apollo Beck and Blue Hawke, aren’t assassins. They’re Texas Rangers sent after a man who preys on women, and their dangerous hunt has just brought Liza into the line of fire.
Confused with the attraction she feels for two men, Liza has a difficult decision before her: commit to loving Apollo and Blue or commit to her burning desire to become a doctor…unless she’s found and taken for revenge first.
The Scarlet Dove tablet

Excerpt 

Apollo and Blue raced along the train tracks, pushing their mounts hard. The train had about twenty minutes on them, which meant they were about five miles out of town. The thought of Liza in the hands of Reynolds left Apollo feeling ice cold inside.

The horses ate up the ground, and soon they saw the train chugging steadily on the track. Apollo urged his mount on until they were right behind the caboose. He reached out a hand and caught hold of the frame, giving a groan as he pulled with all his strength to bring his mount up even with the train.

He kicked his left foot free of the stirrup, let loose of the reins, and grabbed with his other hand just as his horse skidded away from him, leaving him dangling for a second over the hard, unyielding ground. His muscles screaming in protest, he hauled his legs up until his toe caught on a rung. He pushed with his thighs and jumped onto the caboose platform.

Panting, his heart pounding in a mixture of excitement and fright, he turned to help Blue. His cousin mimicked him, but instead of being left to look like a flag flying in the sky, Apollo reached out and grabbed Blue’s shirt, yanking him forward. The other man landed half on him, safely onto the train.

For a moment, both men just stared in shock at each other, not quite believing that they’d just jumped onto a moving train. The after-effects of adrenaline pumping through their system left them slightly jittery, and a second later, pain lanced through Apollo’s side.

He doubled over, panting slightly, hands on his knees.

“You okay?” Blue asked.

Apollo nodded and waved, slowly standing upward as he breathed through the heat stabbing through his wound. “I can’t believe we just did that. You realize we just jumped off the horses that carried all our possessions?”

Blue tapped his right upper chest. “I have our map and our documents.”

“I’m so glad you’re smarter than I am.”

“I’ll remind you later that you said that.”

Ronan
Hark and Noah Kabot are deep space salvagers, partners in business as well as
in life. While investigating an old ship, they discover a cryo chamber holding
the frozen body of a beautiful woman who’s been asleep for thirty-one years.
Against Ronan’s better judgment, they take the chamber and wake her up.
Alivia
has spent her life living as a sheltered yet unloved princess, until the day
she is forced into cryo stasis. It was only supposed to be for a short time,
but somehow her ship crashed and she became nothing more than a memory.
But
now everything has changed. A hunter is after her and killing anyone who knows
she’s alive. As they race across the expanse of space, can Ronan and Noah keep
her safe? And what happens when she finally returns home to confront a life
that forgot about her?

Excerpt
Ronan
moved cautiously through the ship. The thick view windows had cracked upon
impact, allowing dirt and rocks to tumble inside. Everything was washed out,
colorless. Lifeless. He made his way through the broken, silent ship, dreading
to see the cockpit and the remains of the captain. But much to his surprise,
the control room stood empty.
He
moved to the engine console and wiped off the inches-thick dirt, baring the
powerless control panels. He sat his computer board on it and activated it.
Seconds later the cockpit came to life as the wireless remote downloaded all
the information available. It didn’t last long, and as soon as all the data was
collected, he disconnected the console, shutting down the power surge. The
small area fell silent and lifeless once again.
He
activated the neural com link with Noah. “Where are you?”
“I’m
next to a large clump of twisted metal.”
Ronan
rolled his eyes. “Well, that narrows it down.”
“Wait,”
Noah’s distracted voice told him. “I think I found what was causing the power
signature.”
Ronan
hesitated, but when Noah didn’t contact him after a minute he went after him,
making his way carefully through the rubble into the back of the ship.
“Noah?”
“Ronan,
you won’t believe this.”
“Believe
what?”
He
pushed into the back of the ship, which was actually in much better shape than
the front, and saw him standing next to a large steel box. Through his visor
Ronan could see the surprise covering the younger man’s face.
“What
is it?”
Noah
shook his head. “It’s a cryo chamber. And it’s occupied.”
“What?”
Ronan
hurried over. The metal box, also known as a cold coffin, held a sleeping woman
inside. He couldn’t see much of her because of all the tubes obscuring much of
her face, but he could tell she was young, with flaming red hair—a glaring
contrast to the paleness of her features.
