Detailed book overview
A reverent touch to a set of suede-covered cuffs, and Jillian Dosh unwittingly takes the first step into a world that she never knew existed. Busted while she’s making a stealthy visit to Three Divisions Lifestyle Emporium, Jillian can’t believe she’s face-to-face with her fantasy lover. Much more potent up front and personal, Leo Straton’s commanding presence intrigues and scares her at the same time. Can fantasy become reality?
Recognizing the voluptuous Jillian as the perfect submissive for him, Leo begins a journey to pull her into his world of D/s. She’s innocent, imaginative, strong-willed, and dangerous to his heart. She’s his butterfly—stuck in the chrysalis of the vanilla world and ready to spread her wings. Overcoming her initial hesitancy, Jillian begins to blossom under his tutelage. But an innocent deception may bring this new love to a crashing halt.
Teasingly warned she was languishing inside a dull existence, Harlow Phillips deviated just once from her calm environment. Had she known what madness would greet her just an hour into ignoring instincts screaming to “get gone and go home,” would she have taken a different path? Stayed on the couch? Ignored the cab honking at the curb? Had placing herself inside a horrifying situation turn out to be the only road to happiness? How is that even possible? Why would the universe be that simultaneously cruel and beautiful?
Not one for accepting silly bets, Jagger Cayce ignored the internal warning and stepped out of his comfort zone to prove a point. Mired inside the four walls of a world that wasn’t his cup of tea, he held strong and finished the thirty-minute mess of being stared at with opened-mouthed wonder. But the night wasn’t fully done with him quite yet. The real action waited for him under the stars and would beckon him toward a goal he was willing to sacrifice everything to achieve.
Was a simple, casual glance proof of the cosmos aligning the stars or just a happy accident? Who knows? Hop into Jagger and Harlow’s fast-paced adventure and learn why it might be extremely important to pay attention when finding yourself drawn to a stranger amongst many.
"No. Never saw it coming. Jake's a nice guy. Normal, you know? The man coached my son's little league, for gods-sake! I don't understand any of this."
"I've known Anne for years. Not once did I ever think she could do something like this. Ever."
"You're nuts. Mike would give the shirt off his back if you needed it. They got the wrong person. He didn't kill all those people. This is crazy. Now, get out of my yard."
You've seen the headlines...watched a reporter questioning stunned neighbors--maybe even tuned out the incredulous voices. But what if it happened right next door or at your place of work? Would that get your attention? Do you really know those within your bubble of existence?
Already world weary and emotionally numb from the death of his partner eight years prior, Senior Detective Maxwell Browning never thought he'd experience the familiar, adrenaline-pumping drive to solve an unfolding mystery ever again. While the town's victim count grows, so does his confusion. Why are average, normal people without a lick of violence in their background killing without rhyme or reason?
What Max finds along the road to discovery defies belief and upends everything he thought he knew...or wanted to know. Prepare yourself. The truth lies within.
NB: Visiting Darkness, which is also in audible form, is a recipient of the Choice Award from AudioBookReviewer professional review site.
Fueled By Lust Series
Drawn to Texas by a vortex link between Insedivertus and a plethora of potential mates, Prince Drusus Tarquinius focuses on ensuring the survival of his alien race. Avelina Roth is simply out on the town trying to forget her love troubles when their accidental meeting draws them both into a dangerous liaison that brings a hated enemy back into Drusus’ life and shatters Avelina’s belief that we are alone in this universe.
How does troubled in love Avelina Roth deal with the overwhelming Drusus Tarquinius, a force not of this Earth, when he engages her in his mating cycle the moment they meet? Will Drusus overlook the past and move forward with the final mating? Will Avelina survive to know the full depth of his love when the planetary war that pushed the aliens to seek mates knocks firmly on her door?
Packed with plenty of romance, hot, hunky men, humor, and scorching, knee-wobbling sex, this author recommends gloves when reading.

As they work together to solve this mystery, they begin a journey of self-discovery that raises old ghosts and salts unhealed wounds.
Since Severus refuses to wear his mating necklace, as is the custom of the Insedi male, he relies on instinct and readily dismisses signs that Cassie has triggered his mating cycle.

While monitoring the airwaves for potential mates for the earthbound Insedi, Cato Telarius becomes mesmerized with a sensual, feminine voice captured during a pay phone conversation with a hotline operator.

Luna Jasper has been working hard to get out of an unfulfilling relationship, and just as she sees freedom within reach, one small mistake spirals her into a fight for her life, a huge push into the arms of a man she never believed could exist, and a surrealistic encounter with an alien world beyond her wildest imagination.
Emperor Lucien Tarquinius agrees to retrieve the future king of a race that annihilated every Insedi female and doomed his planet's future. Why would he do such a thing? Simple. He cannot have his enemy retake the throne and continue the war against Insedivertus.
Yet an unexpected encounter changes everything. Just one day away from collecting the reluctant ruler, the royal transport inexplicably disappears from its flight path. As the empire scrambles to find their missing emperor, Lucien embarks on a journey that challenges his intellect, tests his endurance, and pushes his emotions to the breaking point. Tana Jameson wonders who she pissed off to warrant an investigative assignment aboard a cargo ship in the middle of the Atlantic.

On TLC's "My 600 LB Life", Chad Dean was quoted as saying "The board game most closely resembling my life is CandyLand. I would eat anything and everything I wanted, whenever I wanted." But those days are long gone.
He's now one of that rare 5% of gastric bypass recipients who have maintained their weight loss after two years. By spilling out intimate details of his life on the pages of "I'm In Here Somewhere," his greatest hope is that others may learn from his mistakes, recognize their own decline into addiction, and pass on the knowledge to others that are still in gripping denial.
The journey was a tough one. Chad credits his brilliant physician, a television production company willing to take a chance, the unwavering support of his loving family, sound fitness advice, and a blatant truth-telling friend that never bent under the pressure of the addicted. Chad fought hard, stumbled, got back to his feet, and battled like a warrior to right the wrong he'd done to his body.
You can't endure such hills and valleys without glancing over your shoulder to see what demons still chase you. What he found was a burning question as to why he'd ended up in that predicament in the first place. The one thing that Chad never lost was his irreverent humor, positivity, and strong confidence. They may have faltered a few times, but they're in full force in his honest, no holds-barred memoir of a food addict who conquered his worst enemy: himself.
