Facing life as a single dad, Rod wasn't looking for a woman to share the task of raising his son. But when he reconnects with a high school classmate during the Christmas holiday, things take a different turn. Out of the blue, Rod's young son says, "Mom likes Jenna and hopes you will be happy with her."

Is this a message from the grave? Is his son gifted with the ability to talk to those on the other side? Perhaps a gift from Rod's wife, who had died more than two years ago, will bring Jenna and Rod back together to renew a romance that never had a chance.

Months after the catfisher had faded away, and time had healed the wound, Renay was finally able to grasp the truth behind the encounter. She was in love with the woman in the image she carried around in her back pocket, not the person behind the screen. Her hazel eyes were the same pair she'd seen since childhood, and she was ready to find the woman she knew only as, Susan Walters. The last thing Olga Weber expected her first night at Oktoberfest was to come-to-face with the woman she couldn't live without.

After one chance meeting she could feel the walls of her closet crumbling around her, and she knew her life was about to change…forever.

A bottle of wine and a sweet, languid kiss told Olga the time had come to decide if Renay was worth fighting for, and if true love could conquer all

Ya Dark Fantasy Romance Dantalion Of The Goetia: Legacy
Angels, demons, and forbidden love interlace in this dark fantasy of Dantalion, a condemned demon from an ancient seventeenth century grimoire. He seduces a mortal college girl and practitioner of the occult named Laurel, who summons his true demonic form in the Courtyard of the Undead, creating an unexplainable relationship of love, obsession and redemption. BOOKLIFE PRIZE/BOOK REVIEW: Plot: Actually, a trilogy of books in one collection, this unique story tells of the fall and redemption of a biblical demon, and of his love with a human woman. Prose/Style: The writing is clear and easy to follow, though the biblical diction can sometimes feel stilted. The dialogue reads naturally and enhances the already meticulously detailed characterization. Originality: This story is original and rare. The author clearly researched Christian occultism during writing and used that knowledge to great effect, creating an authentic mythos that allows for an intriguing and unique plot. Character Development: Dantalion is a complex character and is well-developed over the course of the conflicts between the three books. Laurel, the human to whom Dantalion is bound, goes through tremendous transformation, although her interior journey is less dynamic. THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS: "Good and evil, love and hate are such obsolutes in a non-absolute world. Tina M.E. weaves a unique story of love, corruption, redemption,and what it means in our search for something greater. 'Dantalion Of The Goetia' is a truly unique and fascinating read, very much recommended."

Birdwatchers — A Steamy Outdoor Encounter
He came for the birds, but stumbled into the arms of a saucy minx. This literotic short shares steamy encounter on a late summer birdwatching afternoon. -- EXCERPT She reaches behind her and tugs at the strings. They come apart and her white bikini top falls around her waist. She gathers her hair and wraps it in a scarf on top of her head. Then she lies back. She reaches for her book. Her breasts settle on her chest. Her nipples, the colour of wrens, face the blue sky. It's quiet here. Tourists don't hike this far up the mountain. She must know it; she doesn't bother looking around before slipping a hand into her bikini bottom. The motion of her fingers is obvious beneath the fluttering fabric. Her breathing deepens into a rhythm. Her chest rises and falls, lifting and lowering the book she clutches in her left hand while her right one shudders between her legs. Her belly is tight. Her crimson lips are soft and pouting. "Oh!" she cries. But her voice is swallowed by the forest. Her canary yellow picnic blanket is crumpled in a nest around her. Her body is turbulent, swept away by a squall. It whips her until she starts to tremble, her headscarf comes loose and, finally, she drops the book. "Oh!" she cries again, and arches her back against the rock bed. Her sunglasses topple off her face. Her eyes are hummingbird green and beating their wings in the storm. And then, she sees me. Hands fly to cover her naked breasts, but the tempest rages on. She is helpless against it, and I watch. She rolls onto her belly, body still billowing. Her legs curl beneath her, knees to chest, and she buries her face in the blanket. The gale becomes a breeze and fades into the distance.
