He’s had it with his Hollywood persona, the high-maintenance women, and his sleazy agent. To escape the madness, he flees to a tourist town he’d often visited as a child. He never expected to find love on that little island. Then he stumbles upon Lainey alone on the swing set of a deserted beach.

After a dozen internet dating disasters, Lainey Riccardo has given up on romance–until she meets a West Coast hunk who has no trouble winning her heart. But Lainey only knows him as Drew, not the Oscar-nominated actor who’s constantly scandalized in the tabloids.

When she learns the truth, will the small town Jersey girl be able to accept Drew’s fast-paced life? Or will the truth drive her away forever?

Dassa skates toward the palace in completion of her Third Quest, unaware the Karkar Plague has returned to ravage Gannah.

On a medical starship not far away, Dr. Pik is ordered to find a cure for the plague – an unlikely assignment, given his inbred hatred of the whole Gannahan race. Duty trumps prejudice, however, and he succeeds… but that’s just the beginning of the story.

Dassa and Pik survive attack by space pirates, food poisoning, savage Gannahan beasts, and a plane crash. The hardest part, though, is enduring one another’s company.

The Creator who wrote the story of redemption in the stars has commanded her to share it with her reluctant savior. That’s not all He requires of her, but the rest is unthinkable.

Darik Greyson was born merely human. His ancestor’s DNA carries no wolf blood. But something horribly painful happened to him that ignited a spark in his soul at the age of thirteen, and his wolf was born…created from tragedy. Now that he’s twenty-eight and part of a pack, he keeps having these dreams – nightmares, more like it – that tell him something is coming. Why does he feel a test is on the way… and if he doesn’t pass he’ll lose the woman whose face is never more than a blur.

Talia Irizarry works the nightshift at Manhattan General. She’s a nurse, and a good one. But the men in New York seem to prefer eighteen year old actresses and models over real women, and she’s not holding her hopes high that this loneliness will ever abate. Seeking solace in a much needed vat of ice cream, she walks to the nearest bodega (a small, local grocery store) to buy one. What she finds is two gunmen with other plans.

A Stand-Alone Series, each wolf in the pack gets his own book. “Werewolves of New York” – Nathaniel, Eli, Darik and Dontae. Can be read out of order, but written in this chronological order.
