In a future where immortality is available only to the wealthy, the only path to eternity for the working class is indentured servitude. Yet when immigrants are bonded into debt the moment they land on America's shores, will they even reach the infinite before their short mortal lives snuff out?
(Not a romance, even if that's my usual fare, but there's a minor M/F romantic subplot.)
Sometimes It Storms
Previously part of the IPPY Award-winning WINTER RAIN (Love in the Rain 2) charity anthology. All Ethan Randall has ever known is solitude. Solitude is safer. Solitude is something he can't ruin with the painful, unclean memories sleeping under his skin--memories that make him reject human contact, memories that turn every attempt to love into nothing but pain. Yet when he meets Aurelie—a woman who understands pain, her own scars rooted deep—her love may be the brilliance he needs to illuminate the dark inside him. The balm he needs on old wounds. And a much-needed lesson on how to live, even when old wounds won't heal: how to survive a love like storms without drowning, and how to find his voice beneath the thunder of his demons' roar.
