Sultry Summers

Haunted by the events of a scuba diving rescue several years prior to her finishing her Master’s degree in Archaeology, Jessica takes a ride on the levy trail of Lake Okeechobee in Florida to clear her mind. After a body jarring spill off her bike, she finds an odd lump of mud just off shore. The strange geometric shape turns out to be an Egyptian pyramid built centuries earlier as an entrance to an ancient civilization. She is amazed a young archaeology such as she, would be lucky enough to find a history shattering treasure, she shares her good fortune with Bruce, a good friend and co-worker. But as they excavate the mysterious pyramid, peculiar events begin to occur.

Bruce seems to be left out of these episodes, but they center on Jessica. It seems finding the pyramid not only unlocks a historical mystery but holds the answer to a personal mystery that has disturbed her since the diving rescue. She can't remember the young man who rescued her... except his entrancing aquamarine eyes, blond hair and arousing touch that has remained with her since. Though the activities of the Mesoamerican (Aztec) pagans who attempt to sacrifice her, a manic lunatic who tries to kill her, and the government who has placed her archaeological find under the label of national, one man continues to appear. The same man who rescued her, and she still can't quite remember him.

Coming soon from Melange Books

Time and again he saves her from certain death and finally she finds herself at his mercy in his realm far beneath the deep blue Atlantic Ocean, as his wife in Atlantis. If she can survive the looming dangers, she may have found the love of her life and Atlantis, but for now she is madder than hell at him. Jessica bends to no man’s command especially one who has tricked her and abducted her, even if he did save her life. She ignores the fire he sends through her body and the desire only he can elicit from her. But Xerxes is High Lord of Atlantis, and he will have his way. While the two clash, a traitor in their midst is trying to expose Atlantis to the world and kill Jessica if he gets the chance. Again Xerxes will have to rescue her, and this time -- he may be too late.

About Sultry Summers

Sultry Summers was born on a hot, humid afternoon during a typical Florida thunderstorm. As an author I wanted to write under a pseudonym and had been kicking around various versions and none seemed to fit -- until that extremely close lightning strike followed by a loud clap of thunder. It was simply a Sultry Summers’ afternoon. Click! Since then, almost eight years ago, we’ve moved to North Carolina and I can say without hesitation, the thunderstorms in these mountains are more frightening than those in Florida. So, I guess I’ll keep my nom de’plume.

Sultry, as a name, was originally chosen as a pseudonym to author hot, and spicy stories under. The cooler works I was saving to write under my own name. However, I’ve come to be actually so fond of Sultry, I’ve kept the name as my writer’s name, and now, “she” writes both. Readers can expect to see both spicy, and coming stories that are more sensual and more plot driven, with heavier science fiction and fantasy elements. Either way, I will keep my readers entertained with high adventure, in outer space, back in time, alternative time lines, a vampire, some voodoo, and just possibly a contemporary piece thrown in.

In all, the villain will always end up on the losing end, and a Happy Ever After or Happy for Now ending is my thing but a word of warning, it may take a book or two for that to occur. My villain my appear to win at some point. I love to write long and with Atlantis Vortex coming out and then in July Blood of the Ruby Throne due out both long works be ready for high adventure that will keep your attention.
