The winner takes all in this high stakes game of passion and risk.
They say rich guys have it all, but Brandon Davies would not agree. For him life has been an endless series of empty relationships and parties that have led him to put his heart away, and give up on love once and for all. As his thirtieth birthday approaches he starts to feel that even with the world at his fingertips, he’s missed out on all the things that truly make life exciting. That is until he meets Thomas Meenan, who makes him an offer that Brandon can’t refuse. A one night erotic high stakes poker game. He’ll bet his entire future on his ability to keep his head in the game while simultaneously deflowering a virgin.
Camille Jones has lost her job, her bank account has been hacked and her mother is about to be evicted from her care facility because Camille’s last check bounced. She has nowhere left to turn until Thomas Meenan offers a onetime chance to make a hundred and seventy five thousand dollars in a single night. All she has to do is let a man she’s never met take her virginity in a room full of strangers while playing cards.
When these two meet the sparks fly, but can they keep their poker faces long enough to win the game that will secure both their futures, or will it all prove to be too much for them to handle?May 7, 2019 at 1:59 pm #1353

Now, with Meenan as her partner, her home is secure and her financial troubles are behind her. She can’t imagine life getting any better until Max Alexander shows up in the middle of the night, and announces his plan to spend a month there alone with her.

I am more than a man.
I am the lover that will take you to heights you’ve never imagined.
I have seen stars turn to dust.
I have felt my heart turn to stone.
Then I found Sara, and knew that each long night waiting
had been but a prelude to this time with her.
But I met her in a dream, and we’re about to wake up.
If I had found her sooner, we would have had more time.
But it doesn’t matter because there would never be enough.
I’ll defy the ticking clock and show her the passion she inspires
in my immortal soul.
Time will never take her from me.
I will carry the taste of her on my tongue for eternity.
I will whisper her name when the sun burns from the sky.May 7, 2019 at 2:23 pm #1361
A vampire’s love lives forever.
For thousands of years I waited to find my Sara.
She was everything to me.
Three years ago I lost her.
The time without her has left me a cold, empty, shell of a man.
I had given up hope when I found her again.
But she doesn’t know who I am.
Someone has stolen her memories of our time together.
I’m going to make her remember our love.
I’m going to make her remember what my touch can do to her body.
I’m going to make her mine again, forever.
Then I’ll find those who took her from me, and I’ll make them pay.May 7, 2019 at 2:26 pm #1362
Even time has no power over love.
I thought I was done with the past, and could focus on building a future with Sara.
But Alareon’s return has brought it all back, along with new dangers that could tear us apart.
Sara fears his hold over me, and over Mads, too, because of their history.
Mads once believed Alareon was the love of her life.
But Alareon says I was the one he could never leave behind. This complicates everything.
As the inevitable battle between humanity and the supernatural world comes closer, it is my hope that the wily demon lord can become an ally and a friend.
I will use everything at my disposal to stop what is to come and keep Sara safe.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do to protect her.
When I make the hard choice, the only choice I can make to keep her alive, will she be able to forgive me?
