Never Let You Fall

“I can’t shut down. How can I stop thinking… about us, and how our marriage is crumbling?” Shuffling a few paces closer to the water, I allowed it to lick at my toes. I loved this beach, but this morning even the soothing rush of waves and dawn calls of the gulls did nothing to relieve the all-consuming ache in my heart. “I understand.” He emitted a heavy sigh. “This […]

Love, Rock and Crime

:: Bang! (part II) The police officers saw Rose hang up the phone. He set down his whiskey glass, got up from the leather armchair and approached his accountant, threatening him about “the 100,000 lost in transport”.

Love, Rock and Crime

October 2005  (part i) The two Johns, Little John and Gorgeous John, had been staking out Rose for a day.

The labyrinthine office complex in the west of Athens had once been busy, but today, […]

Reunited, The Hamilton Series, Book 1

“So, new girlfriend?” The familiar voice came from directly behind him. “She’s certainly beautiful, but does she have what it takes to hold on to Dr. Aiden Hamilton. I wonder.” He turned, taking in the willowy blond, and had to admit she looked gorgeous as always. The sad fact was, no matter how hard he tried, he’d never been able to reclaim that piece of his heart she’d stolen all […]

Injury & Ecstasy

“Oh my God. You are so handsome. A real officer and a gentleman,” Maggie said as she came forward to rest her hands on his chest. With their eyes level, one side of Nick’s mouth turned up in a smile. “I like these shoes. Perhaps gentleman is too nice of a word. Because right now, I’m not thinking anything gentle.”

Broken & Beloved

Taking a step closer, Matt refused to let her ignore the way she had melted against him moments ago. He placed one hand on her waist and watched her lips part as she pulled in a shallow breath. “Don’t tell me you don’t feel that, Sara. I’m over here trying to show you every well-bred manner I have, and all I can think about is how badly I need to […]

The Origin of the Vuduri

The story of how the Vuduri came to pass has been a secret up until now. We do know that Jack Henry took his stand in the Year 2660AD and Rei Bierak did not awaken until 3455AD, just about 800 years later. So what happened during the eight centuries between those two events? At the time of the Ark Lords arrival, mankind was spread thin across all continents including the […]

The Softer Side of Texas

The Softer Side of Texas by Sai Marie Johnson and Blushing Books Publications Ivanka lifted her head and glanced at the clock. “It’s about time to feed the horses, don’t ya think? I think I’m going to walk down to the barn and get to work on that,” she said, walking around the table to exit the kitchen. Aaron pushed his chair back and nodded at her. “Mr. Jessup, should […]

An Amorous Dance

Unable to stay still, Hannah maneuvered her way around the surrounding obstacles so that she could pace. She’d been trying to convince herself that these flashes of memory didn’t mean what they appeared to, but the truth was that she’d always had her suspicions about the way her father died. The doctors she’d spoken with had confirmed her father had a heart attack, but she’d always found it hard to believe […]
