Seductive Synchronicity by Sage Ardman

For ten years, Constance Westerley has been having a recurring dream about a mouth-wateringly handsome man with a dragon tattoo on his chest. Some of her dreams are quite erotic.

Her girlfriends, a group of spiritual adventurers who call themselves The Witchy Women, tell her to meditate on this and find him. Of course, her outrageously wealthy family doesn’t know about her dreams and they certainly don’t care for her spiritual leanings. They just want her to find a respectable, rich man and settle down.

Nick Veseli grew up on the streets and in foster homes but was lucky enough to be adopted by loving parents. Since then, he has made it his life goal to give back to the community that saved him as a child. But his crusading idealism will pit him and Constance against powerful corporate interests, including some very rich Westerleys.

Wait until they see the dragon tattoo on his chest.

Author Bio:
The "Westerley" books were my first romance series, and they came at me faster than I could write them down. Much more fun than the technical books I had written in my youth.

Now I’m working on my "Fame" series, stories about Rock and Roll. Interestingly, I was once the lead singer of a California garage band back in the 1990s, so I had a taste of rock and roll fame. Nothing like what my characters go through, of course, but it was fun to pretend.

I’ve always liked a good story, but I never knew about romance novels until I was 59 years old, and in the middle of writing one. I quickly fell in love with it, and now I fill my time reading and writing romance stories.

Also, I never drank whiskey before. But since I wrote characters who drink it, I became curious. Now it’s my favorite drink.

Life in Northern California is full of surprises, including these romance novels. I have been happily married for thirty years, and we have raised two wonderful children. I honestly wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, living or dead, real or imagined.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to buck the standard trend where a rich woman is unable to find happiness with a poor man.

Rock Con Roll by Sage Ardman

Why was I playing con games again? I’d stopped doing that years ago and lived an honest life in New York City. Now suddenly I was swindling Alejandro, the sexy rocker who had topped charts for a decade. I was a huge fan, in love with his music and his seductive smile. How could I take his money?

Unfortunately, I couldn’t escape my past. I’d grown up on the streets, picking pockets, conning people, and forging art. Thanks to my foster mother and her grifter friends, I knew all the rules of the con, and I’d gotten good at it.

But I fell for an old trick, and the only way out was to scam Alejandro. I could con a crook easily enough, but cheating my favorite rock god was an entirely different story. In the end, nearly every con rule got broken, especially one of the most important ones: Never fall for the mark.

A Good Little Girl Like You by Sage Ardman

cover2
“Oh, what a world! What a world! Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?”
—Wicked Witch of the West

What do you get when you combine a surfing billionaire, a globe-trotting businesswoman, and “The Wizard of Oz”?

O.E. Orton has a very large bank account and an even larger ego. Ever since he struck it rich, there’s nothing he can’t have, including a California beach house where he goes to surf. One night at a party, he makes an unusual wager that involves his pride, his money, his finesse with women, and surfing. He’ll be sorry.

Rebecca Moore specializes in international negotiations. She flies all over the world for her work and speaks many languages. But regardless of her language skills, she’s going to have a hard time communicating with O.E. Orton.

And what about “The Wizard of Oz”? Does it play an important part in their budding romance? Do they walk on the yellow brick road and visit the Emerald City? Do we meet Dorothy, the Wizard, the Witch, and even Toto? Yes!

Targeted Audience: Adults

Author Bio:
The Westerley books are my first novels. I did write two non-fiction books, but they weren’t nearly as much fun.

After a lifetime of reading general fiction, I discovered romance at age 59, and fell in love with it. Now I fill my time reading and writing romance novels.

Also, I never drank whiskey before. But since I wrote characters who drink it, I became curious. Now it’s my favorite drink.

Life in Northern California is full of surprises, including these romance novels. I have been happily married for thirty years, and we have raised two wonderful children. I honestly wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, living or dead, real or imagined.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Book #1 in my Westerley series (“Executive Sweet”) left me with many wonderful characters. I wanted two more of them to have their own story.

Book #3 will also be out soon and will extend yet another of my favorite characters.
