Unlike the usual vampires, demons, angels, shape changers, and other paranormal story lines, my book has unique characters, civilizations, conflict, and passion created from reaching back into the Egyptian world and its artifacts. Today there is great mystery and intrigue over how they came to be, the influences that drove them, and the fall of their civilization. All of this and more I used in the creation of the Sphinx World, the characters, and the motivations and passions that drive them. In the sixth book, after escaping The Foundry, Ashlyn is found and taken to Complex 46 where she becomes a powerful protector of the Elders. After she is injured, the Sphinx Warrior, Caleb, touches her and everything changes for both of them as their powers come to life as well as their undeniable need for each other. As Power Mates they will learn to overcome the obstacles trying to keep them apart and Join as one. As Warriors, they will face certain death, but they’re love will give them the strength in the battle against the Wraith.

Let your imagination be captured one again in the domain of the Sphinx Warriors, protectors of the Earth, and the women who bring out their need, passion, and love giving them purpose beyond their destined role as Warrior. The next mesmerizing sixth book in the Sphinx Warrior Series tempts you with the life of Ashlyn and her difficult past and the desire to be a part of the Sphinx family. Trust is an issue for her as she has been hurt in the past and must come to grips with her fears. Tempted to run and with her past suddenly crashing in on her new life, Ashlyn must decide to stay and fight or leave the life behind which she truly craves. Literally running head on into Caleb, the youngest of the Warriors with challenges of his own, Ashlyn is drawn to him by the realization that together they can learn their true purpose and Powers which have been suddenly revealed. She is still challenged in her trust, but she wants nothing more than to completely succumb to her passion for Caleb. Caleb has no intention of ever letting Ashlyn go now that he has her and will do anything to keep her even when their ultimate fate seems to be drawing them into a head long confrontation with the invading enemy.
The bath was filled with the clearest aqua blue water he had ever seen. The urge to dive in and wash the Wraith blood from his body was almost overwhelming but the presence of Ashlyn before him stilled him in place. She was Egyptian artistry herself as she stood at the end of the pool with her back to him. She had removed her boots, weapons belt, and her fatigue pants so he could admire her long sleek legs. Her fiery auburn hair was loose hanging down her back until it almost touched her waist. His hands shook with the desire to touch her and run his fingers through her hair.
>From her stance Caleb could see she was still upset. Hands on her hips, Ashlyn’s very aura kept the two Egyptian females who were dressed in white robes away from her. Caleb could tell they were just trying to help her bathe but she wasn’t having any of it. He felt her energy surge for just a moment and with a hiss she demanded, “Both of you out and make sure you keep anyone else out of here until I’m finished!”
Obviously not needing any more encouragement the two women skittered away and out the door on the opposite end of the huge bath. Yeah, his Ashlyn was definitely still upset but it eased him to see she was acting more like her old self. Standing where he was Caleb couldn’t see her face but the rolling of her shoulders in an attempt to wind down told him she still needed space. When she raised her arms and lifted her long locks off the back of her neck her t-shirt lifted even more exposing her bare bottom.
Caleb swallowed thickly . He wanted nothing more than to press Ashlyn’s sensual body up against his. Fighting the urge was almost impossible but for her he demanded his body to behave. She needed time and he already knew she had issues with males. Whatever had happened to her in the past had caused long lasting effects on her personality and behavior. The Foundary surfaced in his mind and he was almost certain she had been abused by their hands.
Not wanting to, but knowing he had to leave her alone until she was ready to approach him, Caleb started to back away towards the door. He froze in place when she turned her head ever so slightly to the side and whispered, “Don’t go, Caleb. Stay.”

Traveling throughout the United States and locations throughout the world, I finally found the perfect place to call home and settle down in a small town outside the Tampa Bay area in Florida. Looking out my back lanai, there is a small pond where the wild-life will gather and the flowers bloom in exotic pinks and purples. This is my place of peace and freedom that I have searched for and where my husband and crazy African Gray Parrot, Raider, hang out with me. It’s the place where my creativity runs wild as I spin tales of adventure and passion. I have been writing in my head since I was a teenager and I finally realized I needed to capture these unique characters, civilizations, conflict, passion, and love in writing. To capture the strong, spirited, and powerfully attracted characters and all of their adventures and share it with others who are searching for that very thing to make their lives more exciting. If I accomplish nothing else in life, I hope to share the romantically magical worlds and the lovers that I see with all of the passionate readers out there.
