Just as I was about to go back for my too-sweet tea, Kevin said into my ear piece, “He’s on the move.”

My son’s voice was too tight, too hard for such a simple declaration. It made my heart speed up. “What is the problem, Kevin?”

“He’s with Erastus.”

Expletives I normally never used issued from my mouth without my bidding, and I leaned my forehead against the windowpane.

“Should I go after them?”

“What direction are they heading?” My voice came so thick and gravelly I did not recognize myself.

“It seems they’re headed back toward the house, but they’re still downtown, so I can’t be sure.”

“And Don?”

“Tailing them.”

“Let them go.”

“What?” Kevin paused. “Dad, you can’t be serious!”

I thudded my head against the glass. “How are Dustin’s vitals?”

There was a pause as Kevin checked, and when he came back, he said, “Mostly normal, but showing faint signs of anxiety.”

“Then he went willingly.” My heart ached at the thought, but I could not deny it. “He went with him to get revenge on me for holding him hostage here.” I laughed, bitter and ugly. “I cannot blame him, my son. I have… I have been overbearing in this, I think.”

“Dad, are you sure?”

No. I was not sure of anything.

I sighed and held up my left hand. “Call Don.”

My CommLink chimed and soon I heard Don’s tight voice. “Boss.”

“You are following them?” I demanded.

“Yes, boss,” Don muttered. “I’m staying two car lengths behind, but they don’t seem to be trying to lose me.”

My stomach plummeted. “Did Dustin go willingly?”

Don blew out a harsh breath. “Yes, sir. He told me to follow, but he got in Erastus’s car willingly after an argument in Joe Nicol’s office. What do you want me to do?”

What did I want him to do?

Pull the car over and forcibly remove Dustin from Erastus’s clutches would be nice, but the wrong move for Dustin. He would never forgive me.

My shoulders sagged, and I said. “Carry on. Call me if anything changes.”

“At once, sir.”

I opened my eyes and stared out at the forest I loved. “Please be safe, my beauty.”


elven king's captive coverFated Elves, Book 1

An omega elven king finds his alpha. Unfortunately, he’s human.

Casersis Ardal, the former Sun King, is a First Generation elf of over three million years. He meets his match in Dustin Juniper, a twenty-year-old human construction worker.

Dustin has been in charge of his whole life since he was sixteen. But when he meets Casersis, destiny strips all his control away. His body, his heart, his whole world change when he comes into contact with a magical amulet and starts changing species. And falling in love with an ageless elven king makes him question everything.

Casersis has been alone on earth for millennia. Having a burgeoning elf around brings feelings he isn’t comfortable with. But he can’t let Dustin go. If the humans find out Dustin isn’t human, Dustin would become a science experiment. The only option Casersis has is to keep Dustin captive. He must protect Dustin from himself as the young man fights Casersis—and fate—every step of the way.

If they want to be together, Casersis and Dustin must find a way to compromise. Once in a lifetime takes on new meaning when you live forever.

This 73,000-word non-shifter omegaverse novel is set in a world where mpreg (male pregnancy) is a fact of life, however this series does not end with a baby or pregnancy.


I’m a mother, furbaby spoiler, and a girl who can’t get enough of pretty, pretty boys. As a kid, I traveled the world, too young to appreciate the gift I was given, but now those adventures spur on stories that my brain just can’t keep up with. Well, my brain tells me it keeps up just fine, but my fingers are the slow ones. I’ll let you decide. But the boys, man. The boys I remember make my heart sizzle looking back on them. Being a kid at nude beaches, I never cared, but looking back on those memories of Sicily, WHEW! There are some really great childhood images that I wish I could have been an adult to savor.Home is some place I call “rustic”. I’m used to large cities, stores everywhere, gas stations on every corner. Here in rural Pennsylvania, it’s rustic and beautiful. And quiet. Too quiet. With all this quiet, all there is to do is write stories, and let the hot men in my head out to play. We all benefit, yes? I like this development. The only thing I dislike about this rusticness is the fact I can’t find a coffee shop that sells a proper chai latte. They make it from powder. Ew. This makes for a disgruntled Dev. Ugh. I miss my chai.

Most of all, I am a down-to-earth southern girl at heart from spending 16 years in Florida. If you chat with me, you’ll hear endearments like darlin’, sweetheart, and hon/hun/hunnie. It’s who I am, and if we chat, you’re almost instantly family, so get used to it.
