New Release: Border Town

Some stories may be based upon reality – loosely.

You know that disclaimer that appears in the beginning of books that says the story is not based upon anyone or life? Well, that’s not exactly true with Border Town, the first book in my new SLICE series.

Growing up, I heard stories about how my grandparents met at a USO dance in southern Texas. My grandmother was attending with her sisters, and they met my grandfather and his friends. The three sisters ended up marrying the three military buddies.

My grandmother

My grandfather
Grandma came from a family with its roots deep into the Texan soil. They own a ranch, which even has a private family cemetery.  Over the past year, I lost both of my grandparents. Grandma lived to a rich age of 99, and thoroughly enjoyed reading romance novels.

Border Town captures the spirit of the history. While my grandfather wasn’t a member of a secret government group, he was in the Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines. The family ranch really did lose land during a massive hurricane in the 1940s.

Who knows what it possibly could have unleashed!

SLICE Agency, book one
After Glows Publishing

A thin line exists between reality and the paranormal, between one country and the next. Lucia grew up stuck between cultures on the border of Texas and Mexico and the wavy lines of reality. With the help of her two sisters, she runs the family ranch, or what’s left of it.

Years ago, a hurricane shifted the river, cutting through the property with their land partially ending up on the other side of the Rio Grande. Mother Nature unleashed more than land wars. Legend tells of a supernatural beast slaughtering the livestock every seven years. When the carcasses of goats show up drained of blood, she reaches out for help.

Shaw McDiamond doesn’t want to be stuck in a hick town chasing after the myth of the chupacabra. As part of an elite force of paranormal agents that work the border, Shaw’s group, SLICE, exposes aliens of another kind. This vampiric creature is like nothing he’s encountered, and the woman he’s working with unnerves him even more. 

Lucia and Shaw clash over folklore and reality, fate and free will. As the killings escalate with the attack of a ranch hand, the storm returns, and the two become trapped in an ever-shifting world they can’t control. And to survive, they’ll have to do it together.

Available now!

Slow Burn by Sascha Illyvich @SaschaIllyvich

Tempting secrets of an angel

Seductive mysteries of the beast
Derrick, a former spy, has been asked to protect the sultry Sonja, a death metal singer whose magical voice grabs him by the balls and won’t let go. He’ll protect her, all right…with every part of his body tight against hers.

"I'm burning for you, baby. I need inside of you. Beg me," he growled, a low sound that rumbled through her chest, exciting her further.

Her touch hardened him and made his nerves very aware of the swell of her ass and luscious curve of her breasts.

Right now his fingers were walking a delicate, arousing line up her spine.

Sonja uses her voice to purge her fans of their darkness, their hate and hopelessness. But evil forces want to use her magic for their own ends. All she wants, at this point, is safety for herself and her band.

When Derrick and Sonja team up, Sonja does her best to resist the lure of safety he represents, until a radical league that wants her dead propels her into his arms. Will his help be enough? Or will she lose her heart to him, only to be killed in the process of saving the world?
