Fill Your Future with Desire...

Writing for Barbara Donlon Bradley  started innocently enough, like most she kept diaries, journals, and wrote an occasional letter but she also had a vivid imagination and wrote scenes and short stories adding characters to her favorite shows and comic books. As time went on she found the passion for writing to be a strong drive for her. Humor is also very strong in her life. No matter how hard she tries to write something deep and dark, it will never happen. That humor bleeds into her writing. Since she can't beat it she has learned to use it to her advantage. Now she lives in Tidewater Virginia with two cats, her husband and teenage son.

Alicia loves working with gems; it’s the clients she wants to avoid. When Maximilian Santos requests her help to search for the Tears of the Queen she wants to say no. The gems known as the Tears are nothing more than a legend and she doesn’t want to go on a wild goose chase.

Max needs Alicia’s help. His problem is that he has to convince her that the legend of the tears and how they were created is real and time is of the essence. He isn’t the only one looking for the Tears and if they fall into the wrong hands humanity could be enslaved.

Their first meeting is like mixing oil with water. They are strong, opinionated, driven and they both think they are right. The chemistry is instantaneous, a surprise to them both, and they discover that work might not be the only thing they have in common. The only problem is Max has a very big secret that he doesn’t want to share.
