Tough Enough
At first glance, West, as the locals called it, appeared abandoned. They drove down the main drag, past the Dairy Queen, a row of T-shirt and curio shops and Denver’s camera shop. All were still boarded up behind huge piles of plowed snow. A melting cornice drooped low over Denver’s storefront. Out... Puis...
Dangerous Magic
was Wade’s dry observation when Elissa opened her door to him Monday evening. “I assume that remark is in reference to the fact that I decided to go out with you tonight,” she muttered coolly. “Let me tell you, Wade, such comments are not calculated to put me in the best of moods for an evening. But... Puis...

Falling Awake
Leila asked. Startled, Isabel laughed.

Night of the Magician
Flinging down her carryall, she crossed the papaya-colored carpet to pick up the white phone beside the sofa.

Too Wild to Wed

The Family Way

Wildest Hearts
The man appeared to be in his late sixties. He carried himself with a stiff military posture that made him appear taller than he was. He was almost bald.

Dream Eyes

Slow down. This isn't a q... Puis...
Test of Time
The question is, what was he doing out in the first place?""Vandals? Pranksters?" Katy suggested.
