Swept Away

Rora Nepas has a dream, to leave the lonely piece of storm battered seashore that she has called home for too many years. Letting the legacy of being a thief’s daughter fade into the dust of her slowly crumbling cottage, if only she could control the impulse to steal everything that glitters. 

Cyraes is the mysterious eight legged merman who washes ashore, dripping blue blood from a serious injury and bound in seaweed. Bringing with him the ultimate temptation, a beautiful jeweled hairpin that tempts Rora’s will. For so long, she had dreamed of nothing but the stars guiding her on a journey all her own. Now she has a new friendship built on lies, but as the threat of the blistering storms battering the coast grows ever stronger. It will only be a matter of time before walls fall down and a choice will be made.

Will she choose her collection of precious treasures and lies? Or will she choose a new life exploring the world under the sea?

Love in Hopeless Places: her Dangerous Experiment

Alexa Williams lived a simple life. As an athlete and a programmer, she had her troubles and had always pushed through…but this time was different. She definitely was not looking for love, nor was she looking to get mixed up in any ugly dealings, but when they say love is found in hopeless places, this could easily have been what they had in mind. Forcefully taken away from her home and all that she was familiar with for a dangerous experiment that threatened her life, things couldn’t be more hopeless. And as for love…

Jude was careless with a lot of things, including his finances, and it was this carelessness that led him to the mess in which he now found himself. He needed solutions and he needed money—lots of it and fast. So, when a job as a researcher for a deadly project became his latest opportunity, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse. It was never part of the plan to get head over heels distracted, but there is no other way to describe his situation once he set eyes on the beautiful Alexa.

Things heated up fast, and now it seems like it’s all about to come crashing down. He’s stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, and now Jude must choose between what he desperately needs and what he desires more than anything.
Will Alexa and Jude live happily ever after, or does the hopelessness of dangerous circumstances make theirs the cautionary tale of once in a lifetime love that was too good to last?
