A dark, sexy, emotionally charged romance series by NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Jessie Evans writing as J. Evans

“I will love you forever, until men are fairy tales.” –Gabe Alexander

One night can change your life...

Gorgeous Gabe. He makes my skin hot and my lips tingle, makes my heart race and banishes the exhaustion that's been my constant companion since I quit school to be a surrogate parent.

He also wants me to become a thief.

I'm standing at the threshold of a moment that will change my life, and not necessarily for the better. I know that, but still I nod. And take his hand. And let him lead me out into the night.

Please note: The reading order for the Wild Rush series is One Wild Night, followed by This Wicked Rush, One Perfect Love, This Sweet Escape, and One Beautiful Revenge. The first three tell Gabe and Caitlin’s complete love story. The next two books tell Danny and Sam’s story and will release Fall 2014

WARNING: The Wild Rush series contains graphic sensuality, unconventional morality, and good people forced into making bad choices. Read at your own risk.

About the author

 Jessie Evans gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write contemporary Southern romances and sexy, boundary-pushing New Adult reads.

She enjoys sweet, small town romances, and fictional walks on the wild side, and can't imagine a better job than playing pretend for a living.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few children in a cabin in the boonies. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and wandering the woods, glass of wine and camera in hand, on the lookout for Bigfoot.

A southern girl, born and bred, Jessie loves writing romances with sizzle, and hopes you'll enjoy her stories set in the south.

This book is not your average Oz story. It certainly captures the whimsical style of L. Frank Baum and faithfully retains his main characters, however, while the author introduces many new characters he also weaves into the story a most interesting but perhaps controversial philosophy. We feel that Baum might have said some of these things in his time had he dared. (After all, he was a Theosophist), but because of the times he lived in he had to bring his beliefs through in a very subtle way. Having said that, we do think that the spiritual lessons given by this author, although much more obvious in their intent, could be very helpful to a young person just beginning to formulate his or her values. In fact, we venture to say that if children everywhere were to adopt just a few these principles, they would find themselves, as adults, in a vastly improved world, one that would be relatively free of violence (both in the media, and in reality), and perhaps more importantly, free of intolerance. A world where a new sense of honesty would exist -- not only in individual citizens, but in corporate America, and in politics. (An Oz-like reality on earth?)

The story itself takes place prior to Dorothy's moving to Oz permanently. Still back in Kansas our heroine is reminiscing on Oz when she begins to feel faint. She is caught up in a terrible vortex not unlike the original twister that first transported her to Oz when she suddenly finds back once more in that magical kingdom. Upon being reunited with her charming old friends the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Woodman, Dorothy soon learns of yet another Wicked Witch, the Wicked Witch of the Deep South, who spends a good deal of her time in a fascinating place called Negativethoughtland where cruel or evil thoughts take on tangible physical form. The Fabulous Four embark on a quest to stop the evil Witch from filling Oz with these repugnant forms and to bring back the beauty and happiness that we all associate with Baum's delightful fairyland. Along the way, we are treated to encounters with various new residents of Oz such as the Fuzzy Yellow Woggle Bugs, not to mention several strange creatures with names like Ticklemonsters, Girrephalumps, and Octapong.... During the journey there is a beautiful sojourn with a community of American Indians, as well as a meeting of the minds with members of a unique club consisting entirely of United States presidents. (Topics covered range from George Washingtons economic system to the importance of education, and of treating one another with respect and dignity.) During the good natured bantering between themselves some of the presidents provide interesting historical information on their lives.

Another chapter is devoted to an important meeting with UFO people who represent an extremely advanced civilization. They make some remarkable revelations and speak with great wisdom, but since the dialogue is extensive, younger children could safely skip most of this without losing any of the story.) Following is a brief quotation from this segment to give you some idea of its content:

"...You see, beloved friends, it is much easier for you to doubt your abilities, your powers, than it is to try to realize the potentials that lie within you. Accept your challenges of today. Cope with them and be not concerned for the future ... Each of you has tasks before you that you will perform and, if you will allow yourself to flow with the tide, you shall find that these things will come to you in proper sequence. There is a constant flow of energy around your planet. The entire cosmos is energy. We, too, are energy. Swim in it! Feel yourself as a pulsating, living part of the universal energy; feel yourself to be in tune with this energy - to be flowing along with it, in harmony with it. If you become disturbed or distressed, you have stepped out of the flow. If you go against your conscience, you will go against the flow and be pu
