Read full description of the books Ice Baron:Former Kazakhstan, year 3145 A.D.
1,000 years ago, nuclear war destroyed the face of the earth. Now the earth is frozen in a permanent ice age.
Anya's icy world is about to heat up...
Anya has loved Joshua for years. Unfortunately, he's her protector, and became baron of Donetsk Territory when her father was murdered. According to the Old Barons' Law, a romantic relationship between them is forbidden. However, breaking the law will probably never become an issue, for Joshua is determined to negotiate peace with their mortal enemy, Onred. Joshua presents Anya with a choice--marry the Altai baron in order to ensure peace for their territory, or else her people will continue to die in the bloody war.
Joshua must get Anya out of his territory before he does the unthinkable and breaks the protector's sacred trust. When Onred proposes an end to centuries of brutal war, Joshua accepts the bargain. Bound by duty and honor to protect his citizens, and fulfill his sworn vows to Anya's dead father, he will do what is right, no matter the cost to himself.
Should Anya accept her fate? Can Onred be trusted? Or is he a madman, who will drive their world to the brink of destruction?
Pitch black had settled in outside. With it, a deep, biting cold swirled into the cave.
She really should put out the fire.
But it was so warm and friendly. And Anya felt so alone.
Put it out. It was time to get going. Although the cave entrance was partially blocked, someone at the perfect angle might see the light. Maybe that one, last, persistent pilot--although she hadn't heard the craft since noon. He must have given up, too. For now.
Unfolding her trowel, Anya chipped up a mound of frozen ice and mud and cast it onto the fire. It flickered, but didn't go out.
"Don't put it out on my account."
The low, rough voice made her gasp, and she whipped out her laser.
He seemed to fill the entrance. The elite, cream military parka made his shoulders seem wider, his body more solid and forbidding.
"You." Hands trembling, she lowered the weapon.
"Of course it's me. I'm your protector. Who did you think would come for you?"
Palpable fury simmered in him, deep and hot, yet tightly leashed, as were every one of his emotions, always. In the past, she had wished that just once she could break through the impenetrable shell he enclosed around himself. Just once, she'd like to see him snap, to glimpse the true man underneath all the medals and the power that fit him like a glove. To especially see beyond the shiny honor of hero worship with which she'd clothed him when they had first met. She had always wanted to please him.

Read information about the authorI fell in love with writing in the second grade. My first romance novel, The Commander's Desire, was published in 2008, and recently updated in 2013. The book is now available in audio book format through Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The Commander's Desire has been given the accolades of "Top Pick" novel and "Reader's Favorite Hero for 2009." Other books I've written include Her Reluctant Bodyguard, a Christian romantic suspense novel, and Ice Baron, a futuristic/science fiction romance, packed with action and romance. Each has received a number of "Top Pick" reviews, too.
I'm interested in a number of different subjects! As a result, I like to mix things up, and that's why I write in a variety of genres. Here's the list of my latest books, according to genre:
The Commander's Desire, Historical medieval romance, PG-13, clean romance
Her Reluctant Bodyguard, Christian romantic suspense, with a splash of Tracy/Hepburn humor
Science Fiction/Futuristic Romance:
Ice Baron, first in Ice Chronicles Series, PG, clean romance
Castaways, novelette, 15,400 words, clean, light romance
Toot of Fruit, a children's humorous story, 3,800 words
Murder by Nightmare, a murder mystery novelette, 9,300 words
