One breathtakingly hot, passion-filled, night ignites a fire in his soul. Everything in his world should be nothing short of perfection…but he is Rainer Lawson.
His wild evening with Emily is the Realm’s front-page story. Could he have lost the respect of the man that has been like a father to him? Could his family’s hard-earned fortune really dissolve before his very eyes?
Evil rapidly cinches its chokehold, and everything his father fought and died for threatens to implode. Rainer attempts to protect those that he loves and satisfy the fiery passions between he and Emily, but everything in his world is spinning wildly out of control. His desire to prove himself could very well be his undoing.
Sometimes the best of intentions are not enough, but perhaps it is the trials by fire that make the man. Steel sharpens steel, and passion burns white hot in “Lessons Learned.”
Are there “lessons” in your novels that you most want your readers to grasp?
So, many lessons! I want my readers to ask “why?” Why is this person doing this? Why did he or she react that way? Then when we put the puzzles together I want them to understand that people are not all good or all bad and that most people do have a reason for doing what they do.
I want my readers to see that marriage can still be hot! I love that the Haydenshires are still “very active.” I love the passions that course through the relationships I craft. I want women to find their own passions and to put passion back into their marriages or relationships.
I wanted to show that women are beautiful despite the stereotypes we’re bombarded with day in and day out, and I wanted to show that men are not morons. You will see several of my female characters self esteem falter due to societal pressures to be a certain way or have a certain look, but then you’ll also see their partners expressing how beautiful they think that they are. On the other hand, it infuriates me when I see a television show where the father or husband is portrayed as imbecilic and that is too dumb to get in out of the rain. Stop that! So, my female characters are not double zeros with triple DDD’s, and my guys are intelligent, caring, strong, men. I’m also not a big fan of a very passive female character. My girls have personalities, and thoughts, and ideas all their own and they aren’t afraid to let you know that.
The Gifted walk among us. They are unseen, but in plain sight. The Earth’s energies are as visible to them as the tangible world is to us and they can harness and bend these forces to their will. Atop the Pentagon resides the government of the Gifted Realm.
Rainer Lawson is set to join the ranks of Elite Officers in the Gifted Police force. With his fellow officers, they will work together, using their abilities, to try and end the most sinister criminal organization in existence. His parents fought and died to re-establish the Realm, and he won’t allow them to have sacrificed in vain.
The will to protect those he loves has always driven Rainer, but his desperation to protect Emily, the love of his life, consumes him. While passions ignite and vengeance is sought, Rainer may discover that all of his money, fame, and power, could cost him the only thing that has ever truly mattered.
During the blitz Lessons Learned will be 2.99$ and book 1 - Within the Realm - will only be $.99
