Carmen DeSousa

Carmen DeSousa's stories overflow with romance, suspense, a hint of humor sometimes and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.

Derrick's desire to save one human girl will ignite a war...


For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all...


As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he's destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family's strictest laws and falls in love -- with a human.


In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of fate propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they've spent thousands of years protecting.


Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can't save her from, however...is herself.



The Creatus series is not your normal paranormal story...it's a realistic supernatural romantic suspense based on the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe...



Editorial Reviews:


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This story is completely unique, and is definitely not generic sex and vampires. In fact, I think Creatus will redefine the paranormal genre. Creatus has intrigue, suspense, romance, and tremendous depth." -- Quiet Fury Books


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This book could easily classify itself as romance / mystery / suspense / thriller... I'm not a big Twilight fan, but I did enjoy the first movie... I found Creatus reminding me somewhat of Twilight, but with actors I loved." -- New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda S. Prather


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "...well written, compassionately told, and creates characters that make you want to know them better. It is the foundation for a great series, and I believe it will be quite popular." -- Sweet Mystery Books.


Bonus Material! This special-edition boxed set includes the prequel, Creatus (They Exist), Creatus (Book One), and a sneak peek at Creatus Rogue.

After fifteen years of marriage, Jana’s luck just ran out—right into the arms of another woman. Now she’s determined to make her own luck!


The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she's thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband's truck. After that, she's not sure what she'll do ... Maybe she'll adopt a cat.


Very quickly, Jana decides she doesn't need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don't Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.


Three years later, Jana has a New York Times bestseller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can't write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks...



What readers are saying about Some Lucky Woman:



⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ " Great story and even greater message…" — Goodreads



⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I loved how the story moved quickly and covered five years of Jana's life and her growth to independence. I loved her relationship with her cousin and how smart both women were and how they supported each other…"  Goodreads



⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Great story about a woman's journey to love and fulfillment…"  New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott/Jaime Rush



WARNING: Although there are many adult situations in this novel, if say ... something crazy happened and a famous producer adapted this contemporary women's fiction into a movie, it would have a PG-13 rating. There are no erotic scenes, no graphic violence, and while there are a few allowed-on-TV curse words, there aren't a plethora of gratuitous foul words. Oh, and if you were looking for a cliffhanger, you won't find that here either. Some Lucky Woman includes all three parts of Jana's story. Please proceed at your own risk.

Thirty-nine-year-old struggling actress Alaina Ackerman isn’t just down on her luck today; lady luck has packed up and left town for heaven only knows where. Instead of ending up homeless on the streets of New York City in November, Alaina accepts her mother’s holiday invitation and heads home to Pittsburgh for a much-needed break. Maybe even to give up on acting altogether.

 

The last thing Alaina expects is to be happy returning home, especially when fate practically embeds an abandoned puppy and an old friend, Markus Klein -- a man she has spent twenty years trying to forget after the night they crossed the “friend” line -- into her life. Now, torn between a love she thought she lost, and one she never knew existed, that vicious harpy some call fate dangles Alaina’s dream opportunity of a lead role in front of her. Her only problem… Going after her dream could jeopardize her chance at love.

 

As if a new puppy, love, and career aren’t complicated enough, Alaina discovers that her mother and sister are keeping a secret from her. The revelation might be just enough to get Alaina’s life heading in the right direction … or send her over the edge.​
