Beyond Ontariese, Book One: Tal dar Aune, a powerful shape-shifting mage, comes to Earth on a desperate quest to find a mysterious woman before his nemesis destroys her. Little does Tal know the "helpless" female he's come to save is the key to peace on his war-torn world...or that he'll long to touch her, take her, make her his.

Unaware of her royal roots or alien origins, Charlotte spends her first thirty years on Earth. Then Tal bursts into her life with all the subtlety of a thunder storm. He's rude, arrogant, and easily the most desirable man she's ever encountered. With a ruthless madman hot on their heels, they can't afford to be distracted by the attraction rapidly growing between them, but the emotions are too powerful to ignore.

Note to Readers: This book contains detailed descriptions of sizzling passion only suitable for mature readers.

From Cyndi: Taken by Storm is a futuristic action/adventure saga with scifi and paranormal elements. In other words, it doesn't fit neatly into one genre. But don't let that discourage you from giving the book a try. If you strip away the interdimensional portals and magic powers, you're left with human emotions and relatable challenges. Charlotte is a widow confronting her deepest fears while reality as she knows it is redefined. And Tal might be a shapeshifter, but his stubbornness and dedication to tradition are what make him seem real. Though each book can be read as a standalone, connecting plot threads and common characters make the experience richer if the books are read in series order. The first book is on me, so have fun!
