In doing so, Bastien will push the world towards…
After she takes a job at the Crooked Creek ranch, Melody Jackson quickly hits it off with handsome cowboy Luc Girard, and it isn’t long before she is begging shamefully for more as the ridiculously sexy rodeo champion gives her the ride of her life. But Luc is the kind of man who expects to be obeyed, and when Melody’s disregard for his instructions puts her in danger, she soon learns the hard way that he will not hesitate to punish her bare bottom both inside and out.
Luc’s stern correction leaves Melody blushing crimson yet deeply aroused, and her need for him only increases as he claims her ever more thoroughly over the coming weeks.

Mina Johnson comes to his aid like a knight in shining armor. Or shiny lip gloss.

At least, she would be, if she weren’t also the woman who spent one glorious, mind-bending night with him years ago.

Twenty-two-year-old Lyndall Huxley wakes to find herself thousands of years into the future. Something went wrong with the programme for which she volunteered – a programme that employs Einstein’s laws of relativity to send travellers forward in time. The ruins overrun by green woodland in which she wakes are a far cry from the urbanised world she left behind in the 2200’s. Lyndall embarks upon a journey that will leave her questioning her very identity. She must choose between the new life that beckons and the old life from which, even thousands of years later, she cannot escape. She will discover that the mission was never about sending people into the future. Much more is at stake.
A new play set in a totalitarian regime, “Dreams of the Defeated” tells the dystopian story of a young man’s rebellion against the stifling control of a brutally repressive state. Arrested for his activism and his leadership of the September Seventh resistance movement, the prisoner is charged with rebellion, conspiracy and destruction of property, and murder. Those, however, are only routine charges, because the final indictment lays bare the state’s fear and true aim; “…worst of all, the prisoner is charged with the most heinous thought crimes imaginable. Betrayal of our party values, challenging the morality of our dear leaders, rebellion against the Perfect Order and conspiracy to deny the deity of the founder. If found guilty, the prisoner will be (…) executed, with his body cut into pieces and sent to the regions as a lesson to those who imagine there to be another way.”Act I finds the prisoner in jail, locked in a fierce debate with himself and the demons of doubt that have come to haunt his soul, as he is prepared for his last defense against the accusations of the state and its ‘Perfect Order’. Act II is set in a courtroom where he is confronted with the state’s charges against him as he seeks to make his final defense a lasting avowal of his right to live free. “Dreams of the Defeated” is a triumphant proclamation of freedom in the face of tyranny.
