Thrones of Desire is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine.

Most of all, think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts.

Mind Games is a new twist on the romance-suspense thriller genre. I intend to make it the first of what will be a series of romance novels where the focal couple meets under unconventional circumstances or has a shared murky background. These characters don’t adhere to the stereotypical protagonist/antagonist profiles.
Mind Games centers on misplaced love, self discovery and new beginnings between an engaged NYC power couple (Brad Albrecht & Michelle Beauford), a somewhat confused newlywed (Annellyse Crawford) and a manipulative love interest (Kenji Sakura) who uses unconventional methods to find love.
Through a series of chance meetings and deception Kenji gets the girl – but at what cost.
Meanwhile Michelle and Annellyse must come to terms with the new lives thrust upon them while discovering who they are and what they want in life.
And Brad realizes that success and power can only take you so far if you have no one to share in your accomplishments.
Mind Games is a romantic examination of the butterfly effect, set against the backdrop of two cities known for their mystique – New York and Tokyo – and an equally intriguing underground organization.
Sometimes it feels as though you will never find real love, then when you do, it’s lost forever. Or is it? Join Sarah Thompson as she looks for love and ends up in a mysteriously intriguing story spanning from New England to California to South America.
