Image Reminder
 
 

I think most writers agree that conflict and suspense make for a good novel. In Decadent Deceptions, the conflict between the heroine, Olivia, and Morgan, the hero, is endless. Did I mention suspense? The serial killer in the book brings forth oodles of suspense now that Olivia is his next target! 

About Decadent Deceptions: 
* 25 Five Star Reviews

* Special Content Alert: Voyuerism

* RWA Molly Contest Finalist (Erotica category)


Desperate to win Morgan’s love, Olivia Breedlove embarks on a reckless folly of cat and mouse. Morgan stays one step ahead of the woman he's loved for years, more so when he discovers the road Olivia travels is strewn with duplicity and murder.

A decade ago, Morgan was a heartbeat away from taking Olivia’s virginity. Her father, Thaddeus, intervened and threatened to meet him over pistols if he ever looked at his daughter again. Thaddeus is dead now, and Morgan will not ignore the ravenous hunger he’s harbored for the woman. One way or the other, he will quench this burning desire and make Olivia his forever.

Polyglot

 Adjective [PAH-lee-glaht]

(1) a: Speaking or writing several languages. b: Composed of numerous linguistic groups.
(2) Containing matter in several languages.
(3) Composed of elements from different languages.
(4) Widely diverse (as in ethnic or cultural origins).

You've probably run across the prefix poly before - it comes from Greek and means many or multi. 

But what about glot? That part of the word comes from the Greek term glōtta, meaning language or tongue. (Glōtta is also the source of glottis, the word for the space between the vocal cords.) Polyglot entered English in the 17th century, both as an adjective and as a noun meaning one who can write or speak several languages. You could call the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V a polyglot. He claimed that he addressed his horse only in German, he conversed with women in Italian and with men in French, but reserved Spanish for his talks with God.

Synonyms
    linguist
    adapter
    cryptographer
    cryptologist
    decoder
    dragoman
    explainer
    glossator


This word reminded me so much of Ethan Gray (MEKO) from WHERE THE RAIN IS MADE. He is a widely-diverse man who has to speak several languages, English and Cheyenne.


A Native American time traveler, you ask? Yes, Ethan's a museum curator in today's world - a brutal dog soldier when he travels into the past. He's taken an oath to protect and lead his People, the Cheyenne, in times of trouble. And he's taken an oath to never fall in love while wandering the edges of time. But then, he didn't expect to meet Francesca, the white captive he can't dismiss from his heart. Nominated for a Bookie Award by Authors After Dark with over 30+ five star reviews. 


(Ethan Gray)
MEKO - Leader of the Cheyenne
Dog Soldiers



* Nominated for Best Romance of the Year
* Book of the Month – Black Raven’s Café
* Top Recommended Read

A decadent savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother Marsh. Now she spends every waking moment planning an escape from the camp of the brutal Dog Soldiers.

Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum . . . until he travels through time to help his beloved People. In the Cheyenne world he’s known as Meko, leader of the most revered tribe of the plains.

Cultures and hearts battle, violence and death haunt the road ahead, but when kindred souls collide, anything is possible. From the windswept plains of Colorado to the placid life of a curator, their love is fueled by passion and kindled by destiny.
