    Summary

    "During the dawn hours at the Eternal Dungeon, as the day shift yawned itself awake and the night shift yawned itself to bed, the talk turned, as it always did, to the injustices of being a guard."

    Three guards and a mysterious substance provide a temptation too great to be missed . . . especially when two torturers add their skills to the mix.

    Soon three very different men – a married man who is committed to respect and honor, a bachelor harboring secret desires, and a soldier with an unfulfilled ambition – will find themselves caught in a trap. Their rescue will come from an unexpected quarter.

    Summary

    "He was the flame, and his love-mate was the kindling. To say they were mismatched was an understatement. He knew that it was only a matter of time before their relationship was tested. . . . Layle had simply not expected the test to be a pile of dirty dishes."

    They are two of the most talented prison-workers in the world. It's a pity their skills don't extend to dishwashing.

    When the kitchen laborers of the queendom's royal prison refuse to clean dishes until their demands are met, the High Seeker and his love-mate must figure out how to accomplish simple housework that elite men such as themselves never condescend to do. It seems an easy enough task. But hidden between the two men lie memories and secrets that will turn a simple task into something much more.

     

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    "All she needed to gather were the ingredients for the meal. This she tried to explain on one summer morning, standing by the outer dungeon's exit while confronting two guards who had their daggers pointed at her."

    Voluntarily incarcerated in a prison full of men, married to a man who has no desire to "love" her in the traditional sense of the word, Birdesmond Manx Chapman has chosen a challenging path in life. But she is a Seeker, a prison-worker who has taken an oath of eternal confinement in order to share the conditions of her prisoners. She has the strength to meet all challenges.

    Until she encounters her greatest challenge of all: obtaining the ingredients for a wedding-anniversary meal in a dungeon filled with men who don't know how to cook.

    Summary

    "His influence over the behavior of the other dungeon-workers had never been greater. It was a responsibility that weighed upon him."

    This is a 2015 holiday gift story for my readers.

    Summary

    "If you can't see beyond the myth of isolation/And the miracle of daybreak doesn't move you anymore/Connect the points and see the constellations."

    On August 26, 2003, space ninja Lothor demolishes all of Earth's ninja clans. Within a year, he will throw open the Abyss of Evil. The mismatched crew that stands up to him has at first only one edge: the raw power provided by their morphers. By the time they will come to stand on the edge of the abyss, this will drastically change.

    Beginning with canonic events and spinning farther and farther away, this Ninja Storm rewrite is packed with action, romance, hope - and the kind of situations in which hope is much needed.

    Summary

    "My name is Dr. Elizabeth Weir," the woman said, holding her hands before her and slightly to the sides, an offering of welcome and peace. Weir did not radiate the fear that some of the others did, and her eyes were lively, dilated by the arousal of her intellectual curiosity. "We will not harm you unless you attempt to harm us. If your intentions are peaceful, then you are welcome here."

    "I intend no harm to you," she said, copying Weir's hand position. "I am pleased to meet you, Dr. Weir. My name is Teyla Emmagan."

     Weir smiled. "And I am very pleased to meet you, Teyla. May I ask, are you an Ancient?"

    One choice, made years before the Atlantis expedition steps through the gate, means things are a bit...different...five years down the road.

    Summary

    And [Sean] thought, Why didn't I know? and then thought maybe, maybe he hadn't given Aaron his new cell number, since he moved - but he knew Aaron had the landline, and so there was something brutal about the way he got back to the condo and the light that would tell him he had voicemail wasn't on.
