Romance and adventure novellas about contemporary North American upper middle class family, exposing highly intense drama behind a decent façade. Acting in exotic places of American wilderness, boardrooms of corporations or comfortable homes, dangerous locales of Jamaica and megalopolises of Canada and the US, the characters must deal with tough reality of competition, temptations and intense desires, often passing the threshold of morality and law. These are not purely romantic stories, although the intoxicating aura of romance permeates each novella. But love and happiness often go hand in hand with tragedy when the romance fizzles and the complex practical matters flood the souls and minds of lovers. Detailed in an elegant literary manner, the beautiful world around us is shown as having too many opportunities and temptations for some, which burden the human mind. Our morals, those unwritten rules that are supposed to supplement the laws governing society, are often unable to sustain the burden of passion and desire. Saturated with intense competition in business, love and social matters, life makes relations between the sexes more complicated than many can handle. The book will appeal to many different readers. Those who read solely for entertainment will find them intriguing and entertaining, while the more cerebral readers will discover the deep philosophical questions the stories pose.
