* * *


One man's love stood between her powers and Earth's annihilation.

After being banished from her own world because her people deeply feared the scope of her powers, an anomaly shoots Sah'Reena toward Earth and the one man in the universe meant to be her mate.

No one, least of all Dr. Robin Dickenson, expected what they discovered when they opened the alien craft captured by the space shuttle Liberty while on a routine space mission. But from the moment he first sees the star girl, Robin is captivated.



Near death, and never expecting to see anything again beyond the endless void of space, Sah'Reena isn't certain, at first, that her mind isn't playing tricks on her.  But the handsome face of the stranger she sees gives her hope for life when she'd thought all hope was gone.


Warning!  Contains carbon dioxide poisoning, severe sleep deprivation, baked potatoes with crackers and honey, challenging authority, kosher cooking, dissolving aircraft, and an ability that could wipe out an entire planet.

Six on Sunday - THE DREAM MERCHANT, a Sweet Paranormal Romance

Six paragraphs from The Dream Merchant, a sweet paranormal romance.

1. 
“No, the news is not good.” Biting his lip, he tried to phrase his next words carefully. “First of all, let me assure you that Rainn is capable of having children and you, Gerran, are just as capable. That is, if you were mated to one of your own. But…” He tapped the thick folder in front of him on the desk and looked at the man sitting across from him. “But you’re simply too different from us, Gerran.”

2. “Rainn, I’ve thought long and hard about this. I’m not saying for you to lie beneath another man. Listen to me,” he begged as she mutely continued to shake her head. “Go into the lab and have Dr. Vetroff impregnate you with seed that comes from someone more compatible with you. Someone more—human.”

3. The Dream Merchant bent over, placing his hands on his knees. “You know that Gerran is not human. You know that he is what the Elders and spiritualists refer to as a skinwalker, yes?”

4. Rainn bowed her head and relented, but in the far recesses of her mind, behind an iron door of resolve, her memory of the Dream Merchant laughed at her, delighting in her unhappiness. She felt a questioning touch and she gently smiled at her husband. Someday she would have to tell him the whole story. Someday. Soon.

5. The hour was growing late, but he knew he would not be able to rest until he succeeded in this personal mission. It had been years since the last time he’d approached any of the Elders. After he’d informed them of his desire to remain with Rainn, they hadn’t expulsed him, but they hadn’t welcomed his choice, either. He’d gotten the impression that they understood why he’d taken the human to mate, even though they didn’t like it. Which was why he hoped he would still be granted access to their wisdom and knowledge. Particularly to the old shaman woman known as Wefa. If anyone knew about the Dream Merchant, she would. Her world was steeped in magic and fantasy, and thrived on spells and incantations. She was who the Elders called an Ancient, an Old Soul, ageless and revered by everyone in the community. And usually avoided out of fear and respect.

6. The old woman sighed loudly. After a moment of contemplation, she made her way to a shelf carved in the rock wall and picked up a small covered wooden bowl. Lifting the lid, she showed Gerran the white powder contained within. “Put a tiny amount in her drink and the Dream Merchant will come to her. But remember, Gerran, you are powerless to help her. She alone must deal with Kuzo, and she alone must accept the consequences of her actions. Do you understand? Once she calls him back to her this time, there will never be a third chance, or any other chances after that.”

Sweet Paranormal Romance

Life hasn’t always been great for Rainn and Gerran, but it couldn’t be much more perfect than it is now. Rainn was happy to move to the remote mountains of Pennsylvania to be with her love, and to satisfy his “other” side. There, they are perfectly content. Only one more thing could make their lives complete.

Gerran is the last of his kind and hopes to create a new life with his human wife. When test after test shows there is no hope, they are both heartbroken. The two are just too different, their systems too incompatible, and there’s no way around it.

Unable to accept why they can’t be given their hearts’ desire, Rainn vows to do whatever it takes to make her husband happy. A deal with an unlikely stranger could be the answer, but it comes with a very steep price.

Is the sacrifice worth the reward? To save his race and bear his child, she will do anything.

Warning! Contains mountain life, freshly baked bread, distant caves, possible extinction, and proof of how far a woman will go to fulfill the wishes of the man she loves.

I died and was resurrected, and I don’t know why. 

My name is Casi Clarity. I was 26 years old when I died in 1969. Then I woke up in the 21st century—whole, sane, and unblemished. And at the same age I was when I died.

What's more, when I came back, I brought a friend with me. His name is Coheed. He's a corporeal spirit, and he is also my protector. Against what, you ask? Well, it seems that ever since my return, I've been chased by ghosts. Demons. Ancient evil. Monsters. You name it.

Why are they after me? Because they want to know my secret. They want to wreak havoc on mankind and bring about our ultimate destruction, and the only way they can accomplish that is by being fleshy beings again. To inhabit as many bodies as they can to cause untold horror. They are determined to discover how I returned from the dead, even if it means trapping me, torturing me, and ultimately killing me again to see if I'm resurrected a second time.

My name is Casi.
The undead call me Mouse.
Coheed calls me Miracle.

Warning! Contains a houseboat, explosions, a rain of ashes, invisibility, sanctuary, a forbidden testament, and a love that was prophesied thousands of years ago.
