A heavy girl is plagued by abuse from her thin family and many others, but after she finds unconditional love, she finds the strength to follow her dreams and finds her voice to speak out against weight hate.
A deeply buried and deadly secret resurface with a drowned Cadillac
When Lalla Bains' trophy red Caddy is discovered tail-fins up in a local lake, police ask why a widowed piano teacher, who couldn't possibly see beyond the hood ornament, is found strapped in the driver's seat.
As Lalla will soon discover, there's a shocking link between the drowned woman, her beloved father and an escaped felon--all of which will tear apart her comfortable life and bring her family into the cross-hairs of a killer.
"Fresh and fun!"
"With its engaging, down-on-her-luck sleuth, homicidal Caddy and a decades-old mystery, R.P. Dahlke's promising debut, A DEAD RED CADILLAC, will keep you turning those pages and guessing wrong right up to its surprising conclusion." Kris Neri, Lefty Award-nominated author of REVENGE FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE

Now, ten years later, she is about to get a second chance at life and love in the unlikeliest of places.

To save Earth, she needed a GUARDIAN ALIEN
Jana has one goal: steer clear of scandal while outrageously false accusations pile up against her famous political family. But when her childhood "imaginary friend" Cavin shows up -- all grown up -- dressed in armor and warning of an imminent alien invasion, she has no choice but to take him to her leader.
Cavin has never forgotten the girl he met during his visit to Earth, the girl who didn't believe he was real. And now, as a decorated space marine, he'll risk his future to save her. That means staying one step ahead of government agents, Jana's suspicious grandpa, and the galaxy's most feared assassin -- all while keeping her political reputation squeaky clean. If everything goes as planned, they'll save the world -- and he'll also capture his favorite Earthling's heart.

This book had me gripped from the first page and had me swooning after both main characters. Thila was a strong, beautiful and educated woman - something that is often missing in many romance novels, in favour of the secretary-and-the-boss type relationship. The fact that Thila was interested in more than just romance and that she had her own career and goals was gripping to me and I could see myself liking her more and more as the story progressed. Arnav was a character I really liked reading about. As Thila is used to being the boss, I liked that Arnav took control of situations, but also knew when to back down. He was definitely a swoon-worthy main character and I would love to read more about both characters.
There were a couple of parts within the story that were raunchy and steamy, so if you don't like those aspects then this book may not be for you.
A dream-come-true-wedding in Vegas with a quickie living-in-the-real-world-divorce in Reno would solve Thila's ...
