“This is a great sci-fi/fantasy romance, with a great high fantasy beginning reminiscent of JRR Tolkien’s Silmarillion. As the characters and their world unfold, you will not be able to pull yourself out until it is done, and then anxiously await for the author to return with a new story! Glorious romantic fantasy that will make your spirit and imagination soar, swooping through the air on black wings!” — Thomas M. Strait
“I give this book “Black Wings” five stars, as I truly enjoyed the intensity of it, very much so. I was worried, and distraught, wanting only the best to turn out. This was a truly enjoyable book, very sentimental. I felt the words like they were meant to be read, truly emotionally impacting me, every inch of the way!” — Deneale’s Book Buzz
“It’s been a while since I read a Sci-Fi/Fantasy story that grabbed me. This one did. If it wasn’t for the fact that I have to work to pay bills I would have just read straight through without stopping. The story takes you into the future of Earth and what could be or in this case what did happen. Chock full of goodies this Science-fiction novel will have you rooting for the heroine, Annabel and hating the Varkins with such passion you want to jump in the story and take care of business. Highly recommend if you are a Sci-fi/fantasy reader.” — Amazon customer
“I absolutely love this book! I would give Black Wings 10 stars if I could! It is well plotted and keeps you guessing, you think you know what will happen next and she takes you in a whole new direction! The author takes you on an adventure you will not soon forget! I hope there is a sequel” — Amazon customer
G-Strings, fake bodies, what lubricant to use, and which angle looks best on camera, these are all things Tony knows. What he doesn’t know is how to pursue a real relationship, one outside the industry that’s making him retire and leaving him behind. Tony DiMarco, aka Ting Tang Tony, made a big name for himself– regardless of being small–in an industry where size truly does matter. He’s had a long career hiding behind a camera lens where his shortcomings didn’t affect him at all. At 38 he’s forced to find a real life where hopefully size doesn’t matter. The last place he thought his life would change is in Florida.
Tripping over the gorgeous and upstanding, Emily Grant, snaps him out of the pity-pot he is just about to take a bath in. However, having never dated outside the industry has him second-guessing everything. How would someone possibly want his “little engine that could”? Can Tony open up about his playboy-style career, and more importantly, can he overcome the insecurities that he’s shoved aside his whole life?
Tony’s got his work cut out for him, he needs to penetrate the walls Emily’s built to protect herself and her own insecurities. Will she be able to handle Tony’s crazy double life he’s trying to hide from her, the one he lives back home in L.A.? There’s a small chance it might work, that it might fit—something Tony certainly isn’t used to. This may be his one opportunity to find that missing puzzle piece he’s only been able to fantasize about.
The whirlwind journey these two set out on will keep you rooting for the underdogs, and teach you that it’s not always the size of the package that’s important—it’s what’s inside that matters most.
Brody “Brutus” Jackson isn’t your average small-town mechanic. The shop where he spends his days doubles as the headquarters for the mercenary group he works with. They jokingly call themselves the Bang Shift because the government contracts they take are the less savory ones, and they’re all just shady enough to do what’s necessary to get the jobs done. As far as Brody’s concerned, it’s the perfect arrangement for a man with no memory of his past, and no hope for the future.
Under FBI protection, Alexandria Collins and her son have been in hiding for ten years. When it’s time to move again, her piece of crap car breaks down and the man giving her a tow is the biggest, hottest guy she’s ever seen. She is determined to ignore the need her long-neglected body hungers for. After all, the last man she showed interest in put a gun to her head.
Brody thinks the skittish Xan is sexy as hell, but it’s not her hot body that has him rocked to his core. He knows her from somewhere, and in his line of work, that’s a dangerous thing. Following orders have never been this hard, but when he finds out she’s his next assignment, he will protect her at all costs … even if what she needs protection from most is him.
After discovering she can’t have children, Lydia Ryder has all but convinced herself that she doesn’t need a family to be happy. All she needs is her camera, her passport, and a damn good manicure. And maybe, maybe a sexy male travel companion. But when her job as a magazine photographer lands her in the small town of Maple Grove, NH, a precocious ten year old and her single father barge into Lydia’s life, turning what she thinks she wants onto its head. In this town full of happily ever afters, Lydia finds herself wishing for things she had sworn off long ago…
When Cameron Tripp’s wife passed away from heart disease, he thought he’d never find love again. He certainly never would have expected a woman like Lydia Ryder to waltz into his life and awaken his dormant heart and libido. But despite his better judgment, Cam finds himself drawn to the vivacious and argumentative outsider. He quickly learns that, like him, she knows all about misplaced trust, heartbreak, and how quickly a family can fall apart if you let it.
As impassioned arguments morph into frenzied kisses, the two wonder if one week can ever be enough. Despite lacking a maternal side, can Lydia connect with his ten year old daughter? And when Cameron finally learns the truth behind Lydia’s past career, the trust he worked so hard to build crumbles once again. With such doubts filling their minds, is there any hope that Lydia and Cameron will be able to start a new life together?
