Riding the Storm

The air seared my lungs as I gasped for breath running to reach her before the armed men did. I urged my legs to move faster praying I would be in time.
   Jumping from one rooftop to another, I was certain I was breaking speed records and my lungs would burst any second. I landed on the flat surface where she was standing facing the door that would open any minute and spill onto the roof the death squad commissioned to kill her.
   Without breaking stride, I continued charging toward her and prayed the chopper pilot’s computer watch was perfectly synced with mine. I started counting down. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, I was almost to her, three, she turned to face me, two I hit her hard wrapping my arms around her, and I plunged both of us off the roof.
   “One,” I screamed into her ear as she clutched me wrapping her arms and legs around my body freeing my hands to catch the rope dangling from the passing helicopter.
   “Who the hell are you?” She growled.
   “Kensley Storm,” I gasped as I clipped the rope to my harness. “What’s your name?
“Regina, Regina Ryder. What took you so
   “Saving beautiful women is not my top priority.” I said into her ear. “I had to save a puppy along the way.”
   She threw her head back and laughed. One of those sultry throaty laughs that made you know she would be dynamite in bed.

Yep, this is gonna' be one hell of a party, she thought as she drove to her apartment.
She hoped Pam was home and getting ready. She hated it when they both ended up in the bathroom trying to take a shower at the same time. I really need to cut Pam loose, she thought. I’m certainly not taking her to Nashville with me.

Doomsday Cruise Erin Wade


Join Major Ricky Strong and wife, former Texas governor Christine Richmond on their first all-lesbian cruise. Our main characters from the "Too Strong to Die" join a cast of intriguing and dangerous women on this week-long cruise of the  Caribbean. Below is the first chapter of "Doomsday Cruise."

Chapter 1
Captain Stacy Barrett watched as passengers of all sizes and ages boarded her cruise ship. “Uh, oh,” she mumbled out loud watching two extremely beautiful women laughing and talking as they waited to go through the security check.
Barrett was used to single, needy women in search of mates taking her Caribbean cruises. None were as beautiful as the two currently standing at the check-in desk. Obviously, some travel agent had made a grave error. Inhaling deeply, Captain Barrett approached the two beauties, introduced herself and asked them to come with her.
     “What’s wrong, Captain?” the blonde woman asked.
     “Nothing is wrong,” Barrett smiled her best public relations smile. “I think you have inadvertently been booked on the wrong cruise.” Although I certainly wouldn’t mind looking at you two for the next seven days, she thought.
      “Doesn’t this cruise take us to Key West, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, a two-day layover in Belize, then back to Galveston?” the gorgeous brunette inquired.
     “Yes,” Captain Barrett blushed slightly, “but so does the ship departing from dock four. I believe that is the ship you should be boarding.”
     The brunette pulled their tickets and itinerary from her purse and studied them for a moment. “Isn’t this the Gala Lady?” She frowned as she handed her tickets to Barrett.
Barrett turned a darker shade of red. “Yes, but this is a lesbian cruise,” she blurted.
     “Ah,” the tall blonde smiled slightly. “They have booked us on a lesbian cruise.”
     “What,” the brunette scowled then began laughing. She gently took her papers from the captain’s hands, folded them, and replaced them in her purse. “My wife and I are on the right ship, Captain.”
     Christine Richmond fell back onto the bed laughing. Her partner frowned, then joined in her merriment.
     “Can you believe the first ship our company builds for the cruise line industry caters to the lesbian community?” Christine laughed.
     “Somehow, it seems right that you developed the cruise ship division and our flagship’s maiden voyage is one for lesbians.” Ricky Strong grinned. “Although I must admit, I’m not thrilled about taking you into a hotbed of lesbians.”
     “And why not?” Christine murmured as she kissed her wife’s lips.
     “I will spend the entire cruise fighting off aggressive women who are attracted to you.” Ricky flipped her gorgeous wife onto her back and looked down into the dark eyes that had captivated her soul years ago.
     “We’re both wearing wedding rings.” Christine’s eyes sparkled as Ricky gently caressed her.  “That lets the world know we are off the market.”
     “There are those in both the hetero and homo segment who consider a wedding ring on a beautiful woman a challenge.” Ricky moaned. “What are you doing?”
     “Reminding you of why you wear that ring.” Christine grinned as she pulled the blonde down for a long, scorching kiss.
     “Believe me, all I have to do is look at you to know why I’ll never stop wearing this ring.” Ricky slipped her hands beneath her wife’s pullover, easily pulled it over her head, and expertly unfastened her bra.
     “Oh, God,” Ricky whispered caressing Christine’s body. “I love your breasts and your lips and your—”
     A loud knock at their door interrupted their love making.
     “Shush, be quiet,” Christine said breathlessly. “They’ll go away. I’ll die if you stop now.”
     The insistent knocking continued. “Please open the door,” a voice pleaded. “I need help.”
     Ricky pulled her shirt over her head and slipped back into her slacks. “Just a minute,” she yelled as she walked across the stateroom.
     Ricky opened the door and a young woman fell across the threshold landing face down on the carpet. The former Texas Ranger didn’t need to take her pulse. Ricky knew a corpse when she saw one.
