Author Spotlight: K.D. McLean (Tales of Pandora)

The Story of Rachel
(Tales of Pandora Book 1)
Rachel Collins is praying. And not for world peace. Thirty six years old and single, her prayer is self-centered. "Kill me now, Lord," she pleads during her latest attempt to meet Mr. Right via the internet.

She’s not hoping for a billionaire or even a millionaire, just a guy who can strike a spark to her tinder! Is she asking too much? She's a great gal! Just ask her parents! She might be a bit naive about some things, but capable enough- she's a correspondent for a major magazine, after all. So there!

On assignment she meets Michael, 42 years old, also a writer. The attraction is immediate and intense. Rachel, who sees vanilla as only a baking ingredient, enchants him. Michael can whip up some pretty hot delights himself, outside of the kitchen. He introduces a curious Rachel to powerful experiences of sensuality. Her sense of propriety engages in a running battle with her now sparked desires.

Michael is an excellent cook and knows how to turn up the heat. Sampling the flavors offered, Rachel experiences humorous hiccups. On a date, Michael ramps up the risque, resulting in a memorable skirt swirling salsa dance. Rachel's "What the hell, I ain't getting any younger" attitude spurs Michael to take her to the exclusive, adults only club Pandora's. Here, Rachel witnesses even more variations of earthly delights, and begins a lifelong friendship with another guest.

Michael is a realist, convinced that within 90 days, his affair with Rachel will be but another painful memory of loss. He is neither willing nor able to yell 'Geronimo' and fall for her. He can't, and that's that.

Maybe he should just get a damn dog.

This modern, urban, grown up love story is a recipe –three cups romance and one cup of slapdash humor. Blend in spices of eroticism, and beat until smooth.

Soldier Boy
(Tales of Pandora Book 2)

He’s different- a younger and handsome war vet who embodies the ideal “he who yields is not weak”. Unintentionally Nancy injures Terry further. He uses this opportunity to demonstrate his own heroism and shatters her permafrost. Nancy has never risked pain to her heart and falling for Terry is terrifying. Being hurt in love is something she has never experienced. At the moment when she lets go and allows love, Terry’s past arrives uninvited. Will she once more be saved by her soldier boy? Incredibly hot BDSM and love scenes, tenderness and strength of two souls struggling for love.

Meet K.D. McLean:
KD McLean was born in a dark time- it was 2:00 AM, but with grit and determination, she persevered until the light came. And we haven't been able to get rid of her since.

Having experienced a husband who, as Rachel's ex did- 'drift' led KD to internet dating. Of course that was well after the voodoo dolls were put away. She reeled in her share of eels and carp in the Plenty of Fish pond.

Like Rachel, KD is enjoying her own happy ever after with a intelligent and handsome man- who keeps hiding her eyeglasses so he can stay handsome.

Being single, without a billionaire boyfriend was tough. She's got the guy, and buys Lottery tickets- half a loaf and all that, you see?

The Story of Rachel is her first novel. The topic was inspired by some book she picked up somewhere. It was a wonderful book- the woman who wrote it might make some money, KD hopes. She has tried and failed miserably in this paragraph to create a witty reference to the number fifty for some reason.

Sensuality and laughter are two qualities that make life a blessing. There are many others, of course, but the most important gift of life- love- is deeply enhanced by these two endowments.

She's not saying a word about her research for this novel. Nope. Not a damn word. Kids and grandchildren… need we say more?

Life is good. Life is a gift. KD knows this.
