Heather should have been a quick fix, an easy lay, someone to make me forget about life......for a second.

She turned out to be more than that. She is my Kryptonite. Not even in my wildest dreams did I think that another woman, other than my wife, would consume me so completely.

I love Heather

She is my soul, my heart, every breath that I take.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ana Balen was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where she still lives with her husband, their son (read boss!) and the son’s pet rabbit named Shhh! (or some other gibberish that’s the favorite of their son for the day.)

She spends her days driving her husband up the wall (when he can’t get her ass up from the bed in the mornings), reading and daydreaming, or following orders from a three-year-old. In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing. But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing. Next thing, she wrote a book. And now, she’s about to release her third!

BLURB:
The odds are against him, but Jerin will find a way! With or without the gene Kaley will be his…

On Setera, only one in four hundred thousand is born possessing the cryan gene—a gene essential to the survival of the Seteran race. Jerin and the others like him are duty bound to find the match to that gene somewhere in the universe, for it can no longer be found on Setera. With no clear instructions on how this task is to be accomplished it is a daunting undertaking, like finding a needle in a haystack.

Jerin’s assigned quadrant is Earth. After twelve years of searching he is beginning to lose hope, until the answer hits him over the head with a frying pan. Now all he has to do is convince this beautiful, feisty woman to follow him to another universe in a galaxy far far away.


TEASER / EXCERPT:
She slid into the seat opposite him. “I’d like to hire you.” She smiled at him pleasantly.

“How do you know I possess the skills you require?”

The women of Earth seemed to find him attractive. He’d been propositioned before. This might be one of those situations.

“I specialize in ‘men for hire.’ You’re a man. I’m pretty sure I have something you’re qualified to do.” She gave a little snort as if it were obvious.

He let his eyes rove over her body and then drew his eyebrows together. “I don’t do that—”

She laughed interrupting him. “That’s good because the Helping Hands Agency doesn’t do that either.”

He felt color rise to his cheeks. He’d been on Earth for ten years, and sometimes he still read situations incorrectly. “I apologize for my assumption.”

“That’s quite all right. If a man approached me in a pub and offered me employment, I would probably assume the same thing. My name is Rebecca Redburn, by the way, and you are?”

“I am called Jerin.” He extended his hand in the manner of people making acquaintance.

“It’s nice to meet you, Jerin.” She smiled. “Please call me Becky. I’m sure we will enjoy a mutually satisfying arrangement.”

That meeting had taken place two years ago. Becky had been correct. Their arrangement was mutually gratifying. Working for her provided him with a wealth of opportunities to meet a great number of people, mostly women, which could possibly enable him to complete his mission. Each job Helping Hands sent him on offered the potential to reach that end.

When would he complete this mission? He was one of the rare, one in four hundred thousand, that was born with the cryan gene. Any Seteran, male or female, born with the gene was duty bound to search out and find the connecting gene in another humanoid species. It didn’t matter how long this mission took. He could not despair.

Blurb:
A brand new Thirty-Something In The City spin off Series

He loved her. She gave him her virginity. And they’ve avoided each other ever since. Has time diluted what they once felt for each other, or are they doomed to make the same mistakes.

She was his first love. He believed they had the rest of their lives ahead of them. That was before she left without a backward glance. Now, Tyler Beyers is at the top of his game as one of the best rugby players in the country. He’s living the good life playing the game he loves with women begging for his attention. The last thing he needs is the melodramatic blast from his past.

He was her first… everything. Jill Sanders will never forget the hurt she saw in Tyler’s eyes when she walked away. It took all her strength not to give in to the guilt that plagued her. He was her home, her forever and everything that ends in hurt. When their lives are once again entangled, everything Jill once felt comes rushing back to the surface.

Will she be strong enough to walk away from Tyler for a second time? Will he let her?






Excerpt:
“Told you.” Jill folded her arms over her chest, hiding the fact that her nipples had hardened. But he’d already noticed them. “I’ve learned a lot in the last decade.”

“So we’re both single,” he continued. “We’re obviously attracted to each other. We both know that there’s only one way to get rid of this chemistry between us.”

The corners of her mouth lifted. It wasn’t a big smile, rather one of those sexy grins when girls don’t want to be direct. “You’re the one who insisted on a date first.” She crossed her legs, their knees touching. “You stopped us in the middle of that kiss, remember. But we do have options.”

“Please,” Tyler said, turning to face her. “Enlighten me.”

“We can either act on this attraction and get it out of our systems.”

Tyler had to admit that option was so very tempting, but he wasn’t sure it was enough for him.

The second was likely to be a lot less appealing and probably more sensible.

“Or?”

“We just ignore it and hope it goes away.”

Yup, a lot less appealing. “So our options are to fuck like rabbits, or pretend we don’t want to fuck like rabbits.”

“Not quite how I would word it.” She raised her brows. “But yes, under normal circumstances, that would be my suggestions.”

“But these are not normal circumstances.”

TEASER / EXCERPT:
Set up for the teaser – Korina is in the Mystic Museum speaking with the museum’s curator Minerva.

"I was young and stupid. I should have stayed and owned up to my responsibility. It was my duty to marry. We had been betrothed since birth. I shouldn't have let stories of his ugliness and brutality scare me so."

"If you were given the chance, would you stay and marry?"

“I’m older now." She wrinkled her brow. "I believe I would. I'd learn to live with it, and I'd try to change it if I could. I would give anything to be able to try."

The woman released her hand.

"A little understanding and compassion can do wonders for a relationship. Remember that when dealing with your husband."

Minerva clasped her hands together at her waist.

"My what?"

The otherworldly face lit up in a beautiful, peaceful and serene smile.

"You have been granted an opportunity to right the wrong you have done.”

Minerva paused and Korina felt her heart leap.

“The ‘powers that be’ are giving you a chance to find happiness, a chance to do your duty and fulfill your destiny."

Korina barely noticed Minerva’s tiny step backward.

"Safe journey, Korina, remember what you have learned here."

Those words echoed through Korina’s head as the universe tilted and the museum slipped from her view.

TEASER / EXCERPT:
“Mika will want to leave with me tomorrow,” Hugo said.

Hugo and Nadine were sitting on the porch in the front of the house. The sun was riding low in the west. A few clouds with an underbelly of grey dotted the early twilight of the horizon. Streaks of pink and orange colored the sky, changing the grey to purple in places.

“I know,” Nadine agreed.

“I wish there was a way to change her mind.” Hugo leaned forward. Elbows on his knees, he cupped his chin in the palms of his hands and drummed his fingers on the side of his face near his cheekbones.
“So, you see the way Harold looks at her, too?” Nadine was smiling.

“He’s got it bad.” Hugo leaned back and returned his wife’s smile.

“It’s funny to watch him. First he looks angry. Then he looks like you used to look just before we made love. Then he shakes his head and gets angry again.” She sighed. “Do you think he’s angry with her, or with himself?”

“A little of both.” Hugo chuckled.

“Maybe she’d stay if she thought we needed her,” Nadine mused.

“Maybe.”

“Hugo, get the ace bandage.”

“Why?”

“I just sprained my wrist,” Nadine said with a devilish twinkle in her eye.

Hugo looked at her strangely, then her meaning sank in. “You certainly did. Don’t move, I know how much it hurts.” He kissed her cheek and chuckled as he went to the medicine chest.

Set up for the teaser: Rowena finds herself in a special “club.” She has no idea how she got there or what kind of place it is.

“Stephen, please don’t do this,” she pleaded as he put the blindfold over her eyes. “Stephen!” she shouted in a panic.

“It will be okay, baby. Just don’t try to take it off. You will make it really hard on yourself if you do. They want you blindfolded for their own reasons. Don’t give them an excuse to punish you.”

“More spanking?” she asked, horrified.

“Spanking, or worse. They may prefer the crop or the whip. We all know how to use them in a way that won’t break the skin. Just to let you know, it stings like hell. It makes my spanking feel like a caress.” He kissed her cheek. “I will try to get myself scheduled for later. Maybe I can do a trade. Remember your safe word.” He kissed her again and touched her hair. “Try to relax.”

She heard the door open and close. “Stephen!” she screamed. “Please don’t leave me.”
