Unexpected love, unexpected terror #romanceThriller #eroticRomance #AdultRomance

Looking for love in all the wrong places. Tina McIntyre has spent all of her adult life avoiding men like the plague. A brutal assault at age 16 has left her damaged and unable to relate to men as things of romantic interest.

Tina graduated 2nd in her class in Business Administration and has worked very hard to achieve success in life. It’s not really necessary for her, she has $75 million in the bank. But the painful memories of her assault and then her parents deaths have left her with too many painful memories of where the money came from to be of any use to her.

She endures a lonely existence, save for her housekeeper and driver/bodyguard, she is alone. No living relatives to call on to cheer her feelings. At night she tosses and turns with vague dreams of finding a Prince Charming to awaken her body and soul with a love she so desperately needs. Instead, most nights, it’s a rerun of an old TV episode or maybe a movie she’s seen 20 times before.

But tomorrow always holds out promise. Tomorrow she has been invited to her first business luncheon with her boss and some guy… what was his name? Oh, Yeah. Cliff something-or-other. But they’ll probably take her to some boring burger bar or run down chicken shack for a greasy snack. Another boring day in her boring life. Oh, well. Let’s see what tomorrow brings. Maybe she can figure out a way to get her name in front of the company who-ha’s and get that promotion she’s been wanting. Yes, tomorrow will be a better day. Or… maybe the day after tomorrow. …or someday. Sigh.

Patience can lead to lasting love #AdultRomance #EroticRomance #RomanceThriller

Searching for the right soul-mate can be daunting. Tina must wait for that magical moment for seventeen years. Men are not on her radar scope. She avoids them like the plague. The memories that she hides within her past are of violence, pain and despair. Even the $75 million dollars in her bank account means nothing to her.

Tina is a strong willed executive assistant with a large Houston real-estate firm. She knows what she wants in life, but has nearly given up her search. She is well past the years when girls meet their husbands, get married and have children. Those years have passed her by, but not without leaving a large hole in her heart. The few men that she has dated are all dull, boring and seem to be only interested in one thing: getting into her underwear as soon as possible. Men are disgusting, evil creatures. Their only interest is in taking what they want from her, leaving her in pain and loneliness.

At age 33 she decides to devote her life to her work, having little hope of finding the happiness that she sees in so many women’s lives where she works. They have husbands that love and treasure them; children they adore; family life that enriches their souls. Tina has a housekeeper and a driver/bodyguard.

Then, one day, someone comes into her life that fills up every crack and crevice that she never knew existed in her soul. His name is Cliff. But to hold and keep him by her side she finds that she must give up everything she has known to protect herself and her new found love from the three men who caused her pain 17 years before. They invade her life with car-bombs, violent car chases and finally kidnapping her newly found love.

An orphan amid a sea of millions of humans, none of whom cared for me. #RomanceThriller

“Four years ago, shortly after I started at Tilden Enterprises, Larry brought two representatives from Vacation Airlines to my office. I could tell from the expression on all of their faces that it was bad news. But the news was far worse than I could have ever believed. Both my parents had died in a plane crash. They had been on their way to the South Sea Islands to celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary. I had seen them off at the airport. At first, I refused to believe them. It was all a terrible mistake. It was not possible that was the last time I would ever see them. “NO!” I screamed and collapsed back into my chair. These were the only two people in the world gave me love. Now, they were gone. I was now truly alone. An orphan amid a sea of millions of humans, none of whom cared for me.”

Finding love at a restaurant #women’sFiction

“Finally, I found the selections of salads and decided that this would be my safest choice. I put some lettuce on a cold plate, a few sliced tomatoes wedges; a smattering of black olives; three slices of cucumber, and then added a glob of ranch dressing on the side. The plate rattled on the tray as I turned and walked back over to our table. I struggled to keep it level and not spill.

I hoped the salad would keep my stomach from growling. I prayed that I would be able to eat it and hold it in my stomach.

As I approached the table I could hear a few snatches of their conversation and my name whispered several times. Cliff stood from his seat again, walked around and adjusted my chair for me as I sat down.

I looked up at him, “Thank you.” I moaned, his eyes spoke silently to my inner core.

God, he was even more handsome this close to me.’”

Tina McIntyre has just discovered the overwhelming power of love. It was unexpected; overpowering; disturbing; and thrilling. Having lived without love for so many years, when it arrives she is unable to recognize it.

Tina is a lady with a hidden secret; wrapped in a web of lies and unbelievable psychological damage. Unable to relate to men in even the smallest way. All the time, her mind yearns for that which she sees in so many other women she works with: Happiness; fulfillment; joy; but most of all companionship. She has her own staff; a housekeeper and a driver/bodyguard. But they do not provide that one thing that her spirit yearns for at night.

Someone to share her dreams; to give her what she desires: family; children; most of all love. Then one day, on her way to a routine business luncheon it happens. Her body knows it the moment that she sees him walking toward her. Her body straightens on the seat of the truck. Her nose drinks in his wonderful smell. Her heart skips a beat as his smile awakens something within her that she has never known: Desire.
