Blackwell, Deanna


Three-Book Series


Bk. 1 - The Winds of Kabul     Paula is young, intelligent, and hauntingly beautiful--a woman of strong will and unbreakable spirit.  Restless and eager for adventure, she and her husband strike out for Afghanistan, where they have been enlisted to help rebuild the new democratic regime.  Paula wants a different life for the two of them: a renewed love for her husband and a renewed sense of well-being for herself.  But what she finds are turmoil and upheaval. 


As the countryside around her erupts into guerrilla warfare, her devotion to her husband is challenged by his need for drugs until finally she meets a passionate Afghan rebel willing to help.  But his help proves futile, driving Paula further into desperation until her rebel companion steps in to save her from the forces of pending doom.


Bk. 2 - The Mistress and the Rogue     This gripping account of a young American woman and her Afghan-born lover  takes on new and ominous overtones when Paula suddenly finds herself attacked in her home by two foreign nationals.  When she learns that Shadar has disappeared on his way back to her from Hong Kong, she sets out to find him.  Along the way, she uncovers a sordid trail of human bondage, gun smuggling, and Al Qaeda terrorists.  All hope nearly melts away in a deadly fire-fight with outlaw Islamicists.


When Sunni anarchist Ali Syndar Bhutto captures Paula as she attempts to escape into the night, his first thought is to kill her to get even with Shadar.  But his second thought is far more sinister…and perverted.  Will Paula manage to escape, and will she ever reunite with her lost lover?


Bk. 3 - Lady of Two Nights     A cozy night at the opera turns deadly as Paula and her lover Dali stand by helplessly.  Their investigation into the death of Dali’s closest friend soon leads them to Kabul, where Dali is charged with the task of helping set up the underground Iraqi Resistance Movement to ferret out and destroy opponents of Coalition Forces and the newly elected Iraqi Free Parliament.  From there, they wend their way to the Tigris, when Dali suddenly disappears.


Fearing the worst, Paula tries desperately to contact the underground and finally manages to reach the head of the movement ... on the wrong side!  As rogue Iranian Republican Guard troops and the dreaded Turkish secret police close in on her, she faces the dilemma of her life: should she flee ... or stay and fight against all odds in the hopes of finding her lover?




Ranald, Annette

Ladies of the Dragon     At long last!  The ultimate "true story" of Prince Vlad Dracula, the Impaler, told by his wife, the Lady of the Dragon.   Did he really sell his soul to evil to become an undead monster?   The Lady tells how her man followed an even more infamous path through history, and how over time his legend has become darker yet.




Schoenewolf, Gerald

Lila's Bathroom     What happens when an irresistible force (a midget with a kissing reflex) meets an immovable object (a stubborn beauty with a dark secret)?  Both meet their match in this modern, somewhat twisted take on Beauty and the Beast.
