“Amazing story worth reading again!” -Dee A.

He was my dream. I was his muse.

Rocky was the bad boy next door, but unlike any I’d ever known. Slightly dangerous with a passion for rock that we both shared, I yearned to feel the taste of his lips. The caress of his touch. It never came.

After we graduated, we went in different directions. But not before I put my dream down on a single piece of paper.

Now, five long years later, I’m struggling to make my way in an industry where mercy is for the weak and secrets can destroy you. He’s the leader of the hottest band on the scene, and I’ve been brought in to produce their next album. He’s still sexy as hell, and we’re on the cusp of music greatness…

But will my secret destroy me before I can pick up the pieces of my heart?

“Gritty, obsessive, and compulsively readable.” —Brian Evenson, author

Award-Winning Author

Once a suburban husband and father, now the man has lost all sense of time. He retains only a few keepsakes of his former life: a handmade dining room table, an armoire and dresser from the bedroom, and a tape of the last message his wife ever left on their answering machine. These are memories of a man who no longer exists.

Booze and an affair with a beautiful woman provide little relief, with the only meaning left in his life coming from his assignments. An envelope slipped under the door of his apartment with the name and address of an unpunished evildoer. The unspoken directive to kill. And every time he does, he marks the occasion with a memento: a tattoo. He has a lot of tattoos.

But into this unchanging existence seep unsettling questions. How much of what he feels and sees can he trust? How much is a lie designed to control him? He will risk his own life—and the lives of everyone around him—to find out.

“…wide-ranging, well written and very useful survey of the operational careers of commanders of the vitally important lower-rated RN warships of the age of sail, such as Thomas Cochrane, William Hoste, George Mundy and their brother officers; highly recommended.” –

Horatio Hornblower, Jack Aubrey – officers of Nelson’s navy have long been romanticised in fiction.

The officer corps of the Royal Navy during the long wars of 1793-1815 was one of the most successful military cadres in history, winning the vast majority of its battles, and often in the face of daunting odds.

The most glamorous and high-profile group were undoubtedly the frigate captains — often portrayed as the cream of their profession.

Because independent action and rugged individualism were essential to their stories, it is not surprising that naval novelists did much to foster this image.

But is it true?

This is the first book to look at the nature of frigate command, to ask important questions about how and why such officers were appointed, what was expected of them, and how they were rewarded.

The picture that emerges is one of conscious selection and ‘fast-track’ promotion — not merely young men serving an apprenticeship before moving on to the command of a battleship, but a real elite with specific and highly prized skills.

For the first time it reveals that the romanticised image portrayed in the novels of C S Forester and Patrick O’Brian was indeed close to the truth — frigate captains were outstanding officers, whose careers followed separate paths from their less talented contemporaries.

The Star Captains is a major contribution to the broader understanding of the workings of Nelson’s navy and brings to the fore previously neglected heroes of the Golden Age of Sail.

Is there such a thing as Prince Charming? Chastity didn’t take a teaching job in France to find hers, but a woman can dream, n’est-ce pas?

She’s had enough of his arrogance and would prefer him to keep his distance, yet it seems there is no avoiding each other. With the ongoing pressure of a repentant ex-boyfriend, a nefarious drug dealer, and an art heist that spans the decades, Chastity and the viscount are thrown together by circumstances she would soon rather forget.

As the intimacy between Charles and Chastity deepens, they must decide if their love is enough to bridge the gap between their disparate worlds, and if happily ever after can exist outside of fairy tales.
