Jack McKenzie has returned to L.A….
…a city he kind of hates, to get back to some things he really loves: ice hockey, his friends, and his sidelined career in set design. He soon discovers that someone has been looking for him—and not for a video production. Nathanial Sinquah may have missed out on big-city life while spending most of his childhood growing up on Arizona’s Third Mesa. He’s in for a rude awakening when he boards a Greyhound bus to Southern California in search of the answers to his late mother’s secret past. Nate’s ethical Hopi upbringing has left him ill-prepared for the street crime, common hostility and selfish betrayal he encounters in Los Angeles.
Salvation comes in the form of young Emelie Marin, a savvy, sexy and sometimes psychic college dropout who sidetracks Nate’s quest and turns his insides into jelly. But Nate believes that he and Jack may share lineage, and Jack is blown away by the possibility that his late father may have had a secret life. When Nate’s girlfriend Emelie thrusts this news before him, Jack can’t wait to meet up with the young Native American who’s just as anxious to meet Jack. Only problem is, Nate has been kidnapped, and the mystery has just gotten a whole lot bigger. Together, Emelie, Nate and Jack embark on a journey that leads them back into a past fraught with uncertainty, bigotry, fear and tragedy. The mystery of Nate’s ancestors is only a small part of a much larger tale, one that emanates from an iconic structure standing guard over a dark blue harbor. From World War II until the day Nate discovers its deadly secret, Angel’s Gate Lighthouse has remained steadfast and silent, guarding more than just the City of Angels.

“You really want this, right?”
Jessica did want it. She wanted everything Dane had to offer…but was the seductive superstar offering anything more than a fleeting moment of carnal bliss? She thought she didn’t care.
On screen and off, silver screen heroes Dane Pierce and Cory “Mac” MacKendall are as different as cognac and Perrier, and newcomer Jessica Taylor loves them both. Despite his tantalizing green eyes and raw sexuality, Dane is not the man she thinks she needs. It is the solid and devoted – if hot-headed – Mac who wins her hand and her heart, and who must endure a lifelong challenge to keep that heart safe from Dane’s unending pursuit.
From Hollywood soundstage to the Grenadine Islands, STARCROSSED HEARTS makes a journey around the world and through the lives of some very real characters you will not soon forget.
