Book Description:

Having written numerous works of nonfiction, this is Lee Hudspeth’s debut book of poetry. Incandescent Visions explores the meaning of the human experience, as the author encourages his readers to ponder the universe and their place within it, and to catalyze their own creative potential. From the sublime shores of the Mediterranean to the majestic expansiveness of deep space, this book contemplates nostalgia, perspective and the gift of love. Through five short yet powerful, thought-provoking chapters of contemporary poems—and a dash of elegant, evocative haiku—Hudspeth takes his readers on a journey across the inner landscape of struggle, triumph, self-realization and imagination.

To find love, two bitter rivals must start over or end their matebond forever.

From the moment he is resurrected, Mitchell Brooks is full of ambition and determined to win at all costs.

After three days of suffering, he begins his journey toward Juris Knight and excels, achieving perfect scores on every aptitude test. However, Pierson struggles with an inability to relate to everyone—including the man supposedly destined to be his other half. 

They keep their matebond a secret and after weeks of discord, they are sent to different cities and go their separate ways with bitter confrontations their only memory.

However, Pierson is ready to move on and wants anyone other than Mitchell. With so many barriers standing between them, is it possible to find love and honor Fate?

Blurb:
All I wanted for Christmas was a date…

I posted one personal ad on a free, dark web dating site. I expected a Nigerian Prince who wanted my bank account number or a phishing scam. I didn’t expect to receive lavish gifts from a beautiful stranger.

A plane ticket.

A weeklong vacation in Bora Bora.

Saying yes to everything was easy because in exchange for my insane compliance, he agreed to be my date home for Christmas.

Except when I arrive in paradise I realize he isn’t just a beautiful stranger.

He’s Italian royalty—an actual freaking Prince!

He’s also a world-famous porn star.

Falling for an untouchable man isn’t advisable, but then again this was only supposed to be The Christmas Con.

A standalone, steamy, Christmas Novella.

 

Excerpt:

I let the gown fall to the ground when the doctor exits. That’s when Luca walks in. Tall, chiseled masculine. Perfect in every way except in all the morally sound ways women want their men to adhere to. His skin is bronzed, and his gaze is ferocious as he takes in my naked body from head to toe. “Just as I hoped I’d find you.”

I should be horrified that he’s seeing me at my most vulnerable, but how many exposed women have his eyes seen? If the internet has anything to say about it, it’s probably thousands. Luca has confidence I’ve never seen in a man before. His gaze tells me my body is an instrument he is skilled at playing. His tongue skirts across his bottom lip.

“I’m still in shock,” I explain, not having anything intelligent to say, I figure I should stick to the truth.

“Rossi gave you the details.” Luca reaches behind a door that must lead to a bathroom and unhooks a silk robe. He tosses it on the bed.

“Details?” I shriek. “You’re some prince turned porn star and that was more than enough details, he gave me a trough filled with manure.”

He cocks his head to the side. “I’m not sure what you mean.”

I ignore his plea for explanation. “Having women get a physical upon entering isn’t the best way to romance, just so you know. Maybe say hello before you force a doctor between my legs.”

His grin is mischievous. “It’s easier this way.”

“Do you do this often? I’m starting to feel a bit like a sex worker myself right now.”

“Oh, sweet Elizabeth. I haven’t even touched you… yet.”

“Answer the question,” I fire back, reaching for the robe and tying it on as his eyes catalog my every movement. “Do you do this often?”

“No. Once a year when I take a holiday.” He steps toward me. “Are you angry? Hungry? How can I please you? No sex until your labs come back, but in the meantime, tell me what you want.”

“A proper meeting!”

He extends his hand. “I am Luca Bianchi. Charmed to meet you.”

When I slip my hand into his, he flips it, and brings it to his lips and places a warm kiss on the center of my palm. “I… I… It’s nice to meet you, Luca. Call me Lizzy.”

He doesn’t release my hand, in fact, he kisses my wrist and flicks his eyes up to meet mine. “How about I just call you mine?”
