This is the one, if you loved 50 Shades #kindle #EroticRomance

Are you looking for a story that is the reverse of 50 Shades of Grey? I mean, where the girl has the cash, and the guy is a regular bloke. If so, then this is it.

Tina is devastated by two tragedies in her life. First, she was assaulted by 3 boys when she was age 16. Second – 12 years later her parents die in a plane crash. From the first event, her parents win her a 20 million dollar civil award. From the second, a class action lawsuit dumps 30 million into her bank account.

If that were me, I could find lots of things on which to blow the money. Fancy cars, exotic vacations, my own plane, etc. Tina, not so much. She can’t touch the first money because it would make her feel like a whore being paid for a trick. The later money represents the blood of her parents. So all of it languishes in her bank accounts.

Well, not exactly languish, since it’s invested in stocks and bonds, but she can never touch it herself. It only represents painful memories. For 17 years it accumulates until today it’s worth over 70 million dollars.

What she needs in her life is something that money cannot buy. Something that she has avoided for those 17 years. She has a bodyguard and a housekeeper. She has a great job, and makes a good salary. What she wants is that promotion to VP opening at her company.

Her boss is dragging her along on a business luncheon with some dull Construction Manager. Perhaps her newly devised floor plan sketches of the new office tower being built she can get the who-ha’s to notice her. Yep, by the end of this lunch both these guys will be eating our of her hands. That VP slot will be hers.

US Review of Books: This initial offering features a steamy romance, danger and a thrilling climax, seen through the eyes of a woman capable of both fighting evil and yielding to love.

Erotic tale of love and danger #erotic Romance #Erotic Thriller

Tina McIntyre found love only after having her entire world destroyed. Then, after having found love gave everything that she owned and possessed away.

How was her world destroyed?

I was born Christina Laura McIntyre, but that was a name that belonged to another person in another time. Now, it’s Tina, because Tina would never allow those boys or even men to violate her that way again. Christina did fight back, but lost the struggle that terrible night seventeen years ago. Tina was born when Christina died. Do I remember that night? There is not even one second of that terrible night that I can ever forget.

Why did she give everything away that she owned and possessed?

Realization dawned on me at last that in my own life I must surrender everything to him. I must lay myself bare at his feet. My livelihood, my fortune, my possessions. They meant nothing to me. I must give everything up in my present life in order to salvage my future one. I must depend on him for the food that I eat, the clothes that I wear, my safety and my very life.

Nothing less would be sufficient to demonstrate how deeply that I loved him, trusted him, and wanted and needed to share his life. This would be the price I must pay to redeem myself. Nothing less than total surrender, body and soul. I would strip myself naked of everything in my life and lay it at his feet.

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.

Life without love #romanceThriller

“I always sensed that there was still something missing in my life that I desperately wanted. I could not put my finger on it. Sometimes when I watched certain men at the office, I’d be lost in a daydream. I wished that my Prince Charming would arrive on his white horse to carry me away. Hell, I’d even settle for a hunk in a nice BMW. See? I’m not really that picky, am I? Sadly, at the end of the day, it was always back to my apartment and a movie I had seen many times before, or an old TV rerun.”

The above is a quote from Tina McIntyre. A young woman, having vast wealth at her fingertips. Possessing a spectacular apartment, a housekeeper and bodyguard. A fantastic job for a great boss; a beautiful car. In short, everything a woman could want, except the things that mattered most to her: happiness, family, and that mythical thing she missed to the depth of her soul. Companionship and love with a man who could share her life and future.

“I would have given my entire fortune to have my parents back or not have been raped. I felt degraded, worthless, alone. Through it all, Larry [her boss] was understanding and gave me that extra time to grieve which I so desperately needed. He was truly the best boss ever. Focusing my energies on work allowed me to keep my sanity, and my pride intact.”

Then, one day, she met the man of her dreams. If I recall correctly it was on a Tuesday. Yes, she was riding into work, the clouds were roiling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Rain threatened. She had a business luncheon with her boss and some construction supervisor. By the end of that luncheon she planned to have both of them eating out of hands and a big promotion in the bag. Instead:

“I curled my fingers inside his palm and made no effort to release my hand from his grip. My fingers felt so natural inside his hand; my entire body relaxed, the knot in my stomach disappeared. Strange visions of trips in the country together with Cliff; I could see us in a boat, alone together. I was sitting on the back cushion, I patted the place beside me, he walked to me and kissed my lips…. Ohhhhhh….”

Find out the true story, and what happens in Tina’s life when that vision of her future comes true. How she must give up Everything to make it happen. Her money, her apartment, her staff. All are stripped away in a desperate decision that leaves her at the mercy of the three men who are trying to kill her.

Falling in love #romance/thriller

How does a young girl fall in love? Sure, everyone has those dreams of meeting the perfect man. Then there will be a whirlwind romance, afterward a perfect wedding in an exotic setting. Then the happily ever-after with children, family and a great job.

But – what if something happens that’s unforeseen?  Maybe a car wreck; loss of a limb; blindness; disfigurement? What then? The girl’s body is no longer the perfect shape or condition that the perfect man might be searching. She is damaged beyond repair, but still has the same dreams.

But, what if the injuries are not visible? Hidden behind a facade of lies and deception? Hidden, because she feels they are shameful, unclean due to a despicable act of three young boys out for their own thrills.

A young girl still must face life, with all of its’ challenges and pitfalls, but with her psyche damaged almost beyond repair. I say almost, because there might be someone out there who can repair and bring all of the happiness and love that she dreamed of as a child.

Can a chance meeting in the parking lot of an office tower under construction be the location where these two cross paths? But what if the girl, now a grown woman, has given up all dreams of that future? Chases away any and all men who approach her? What if she is fearful of even being in the same room with a man alone?

How can a woman who has never known the love of a man for a woman overcome the issues from her past which rule her present?
