I LOVE TO WRITE! 

My sister used to say that a writer was someone with an overactive imagination who lied well...

New Release - CROSSING THE CHASM 
 Sequel to The Ocean Between


Digital Only - $1.99

DEDICATION:
For all my loyal fans who loved and still cherish Rashid and Victoria's story in THE OCEAN BETWEEN and who have requested that Califar and Jessica have their story told. THIS IS FOR YOU!

Jessica was patiently waiting to board her flight home after visiting her friend, the Princess of Ahalamin, when a botched abduction by a local terrorist group lands her in a sweltering desert tent awaiting execution. She needs a miracle--but the Devil will have to do...

Califar Cadin, First Regent of the Middle Eastern country of Ahalamin, is a man of tradition, authority, and determination. But to Jessica Heathly, he’s the arrogant tyrant who calls her WIFE.

* Although CROSSING THE CHASM is a sequel to THE OCEAN BETWEEN by Lynda Coker, available at Amazon, the story reads well as a stand-alone.




~Dirk Savage never fails to acquire what he wants until he encounters Stormee Waters and a backwash of trouble...~

Stormee Waters knows about hard times. Needing to care for her aging grandmother and teenage brother, she moves to Houston, Texas and takes a writing job for a popular magazine. Her first
assignment is to interview a successful business man for a series of articles entitled, Make My Man Texas-Sized. Her target, Dirk Savage, appears to have the right criteria. He's adventurous with the air of a conqueror. Admired by his peers and coveted by beauty queens and debutantes, he's just the type of man that Stormee needs to make her first article sizzle and sell. But can she handle the heat when she catches his attention?


Dirk Savage is used to acquiring what he wants, except in the illusive quest for the one woman who can fill his heart. The shock of discovering her in the naive young woman assigned to interview him sets his jaded emotions on high alert. Can he convince her that his pursuit is genuine?

EXCERPT:


Josh scrambled to his feet and towered over her, not
hard to do since he topped her by eight inches. He bent
forward until his nose fit right between her eyes.

“You’re the most evil sister a guy ever had.”

“Don’t blame me. Get up when I call and I won’t
need to keep repeating this target practice. You’ve got
forty-five minutes before Mr. Savage’s driver arrives.”

“What’s this guy doing messing in our business?
I’m telling you, he has the look of a Wise Guy.” Josh
mimicked a gun with his hand and pulled back on his
thumb as though cocking a revolver.

Stormee shrugged. “I’m sure he wouldn’t be the
powerful man he is without a high degree of
intelligence.”

Josh threw up his hands. “I don’t mean brain smart.
Haven’t you noticed he has a razor-sharp edge just like
those characters in that movie we watched about the
crime syndicate?”

“Don’t exaggerate.”

Josh grabbed her by both arms, lifted her out of his
way, and strode off in the direction of the bathroom.
“You never listen to me anyway. But I’m telling you, he’s trouble.”




Praise for The Ocean Between by Lynda Coker
 (Winner of the Heart of Denver Romance Writers 2006 Molly Award for Short Contemporary Fiction)
“This is one lady who knows how to write a Love story with a capital L! Hot as the desert wind, sweet as the date cakes served with mint tea, this is one romance that will grab you by the heartstrings. I can almost guarantee that the ending of this book will make you teary-eyed but in a good way, of course. I loved it! Once I started the book, I couldn't put it down until the end.”  ~ Kaye at Pudgy Penguin Perusals

This is the first novel I have read from Lynda Coker, but I will look forward to reading more of her work in the future. Absolutely wonderful!”   ~ Wendy Hines at Minding Spot

I have read a lot, but there are very few books that I can say that are my favorite as in 'of all time'... to me, this is 'timeless'.” ~ Denise Davis on Amazon

VICTORIA BALLARD, a New York financial executive, is one woman who considers men to be an unnecessary annoyance. With her career on track, she focuses on the adoption of four beautiful orphans, a crowning completion to her well-designed life-plan. But life is a nasty trickster and is about to spring one on her.

Unknown to Victoria, PRINCE RASHID DAVAR has just completed an agreement with her father that will make Victoria his wife by a secret proxy marriage. However, what Rashid does not realize is this woman is more easily married than controlled. She may be his wife, but it will take a kidnapping, a battle of wills, and some desert heat of his own before he can claim her heart.
