The Ex-Pat Returns

I lived 8 years of my life overseas, starting in Hiroshima Japan when my kids were 5, 3 and “in utero,” spending some years in Istanbul, Turkey and ending in Billericay, Essex, England before heading back to mainstream, Midwest Americana.

 

It was a tough transition.

 

It’s like jetlag, something I got very familiar with during those years.  It was difficult going over, but you don’t even know “difficult” until you try and come back the other way.

 

To be honest, if my then 13-year old son had not insisted he was sick of being “the American kid” and wanted to come back home, I’m not sure we would have ever made it back here. I enjoyed being an ex-pat and by the time we were done with it I felt so acclimated to life in England I was ready to stay a few more years.

 

But, the kids were over it. So home we went, back to Ann Arbor, the town we’d left almost a decade prior. We bought a house, got the kids enrolled in school, I got my real estate license out of escrow, got 2 dogs, all the usual stuff.  And the kids settled in nicely. It was as if all the wild, crazy moments overseas had never, ever happened.

 

It was weird.

 

It was like I thought the words “I have lived overseas and have no frame of reference for what you are talking about in this suburban elementary school” were plastered on my forehead. Which they were not, of course. I was just another mom-face to my kids’ teachers and they were just kids, albeit a couple of them with distinct British accents which they quickly ditched in order not to stand out.  It took me a while to get over myself. But the years I spent maneuvering my way through strange grocery stores, markets, international schools and everything in between surely did mold me into a different sort of American citizen.

 

When it came to being inspired, Istanbul provided the impetus for my Turkish Delights series, which is now available in e-book bundle for Kindle Prime members and is also available in a print anthology—which combines all 5 short novellas into a long juicy novel! I hope you get a chance to pick one of these formats up. You won’t regret it.

Individual Blurbs for the books:

The Diplomat’s Daughter:

When Vivian Kincaid’s eyes meet those of a hunky local at the Turkish university her father forces her to attend, it only takes her a split second to recognize her childhood friend. Levent Deniz was the servant boy who taught her to run the streets of Istanbul years before, giving outlet to her wild streak even as a child.

 

Now face-to-face once again as adults, the only thing standing between them and happiness is her father. The newly appointed Consul General for the United States has other plans for his only daughter. Ones that do not include a former servant, now successful entrepreneur and businessman. He will do everything in his power to keep them apart.

 

The Diplomat’s Daughter is set in 1960s Istanbul and tells the story of pre-destiny, passion and the rebellious power of true love.

 

Turkish Delights (1NightStand)

The fifteen year age difference between Elle Kensington, expatriate American executive and Emre Demir, son of Istanbul’s most successful businessmen, has not kept them from becoming fast friends as they toured Istanbul together. But the time has come for him to return to the U.S. to finish his master’s degree, and she has just been named CEO of the pharmaceutical company that brought her to Turkey in the first place. Elle adores her adopted country, and is alarmed to find herself falling in love with the young man who’s been her impromptu guide for the last few months.

 

She knows they can never be. She will return home to California within a month, leaving behind all she loves about the ancient city. In a rare fit of spontaneity, Elle has contracted with Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand dating service, hoping to find a way to forget the dark, handsome young man who has captured her heart. Little does she know what awaits her in the ancient recesses of the Ottoman palace turned luxury hotel under the hands of her one-night stand masseur.

  

Blue Cruise (1NightStand, m/m)

Caleb and Tarkan were an odd couple—men from two different cultures—so in love, they were determined to overcome any obstacles. But fate had different plans for Tarkan. Shattered and unable to function a full two years after tragedy strikes, Caleb faces the hollow shell that is his life.

 

Adem Broussard is happy enough, as owner and chef of his restaurant on the Turkish southern coast. But a tall, American Adonis he saw once, years ago on a Turkish Blue Cruise haunts his most erotic dreams, and he hopes contracting Madame Eve’s 1NightStand service for an unconventional date will help him forget.

 

When Caleb caves in to his friend Elle’s insistence that he return to Turkey and exorcise some of the demons that haunt him, he reluctantly climbs on board a private yacht for a special 1Night Stand Blue Cruise. There he comes face to face with the man who remembers him well…and helps him heal.

  

Tulip Princess (1NightStand, BDSM)

Lale Deniz was always prone to wildness. But when her family is ripped apart at the seams, she becomes more reckless than ever. Desperate to stop her self-destructive slide, her parents step in and send her to America to live with her brother, Emre. Just the chance, she thinks, to escape the tragedy suffusing her Istanbul home.

 

Andreas Michos, Greek former NFL star, the recently divorced athletic director at UNLV, floats through life seeking fulfillment. He has reason to doubt his own abilities as a natural Dom and has given up finding his perfect mate. Until he agrees to a 1Night Stand.

 

Set against a backdrop of ancient cultural clashes and Mediterranean family dynamics, Lale and Andreas meet in Las Vegas at the Castillo resort for their date. But it seems Madame Eve and destiny will both fail this time, unless Lale and Andreas are willing to relinquish enough control to discover what happiness can be found inside the soul of the other. Will stubbornness keep them from connecting, or can they let go long enough to heal?

  

Flower Passage (final novella, m/m/m)

What would you do if the lover, brother, son, and friend you thought you’d lost forever was returned to you?

 

Brutally battered, emotionally and physically for the past two years, Tarkan Deniz has escaped his captors. When the Deniz family discovers the shocking truth they rally and do everything in their power to bring him back safely. But all have been affected by the tragedy of his loss and must come to terms with the new reality, each in their own way.

 

When Happily Ever After seems like a nightmare…one man can bring healing to all, but will he ever be the same man again?

 

Flower Passage is a story of love lost and regained, even if it takes a slightly different form than before.

  1. I have to agree with Alyssa. Blue Cruise is one of top Liz reads. Its sad but hopeful at the same time. 🙂

    Also, The Diplomat’s Daughter as been re-read at least a dozen times. Timeless story that everyone can read and relate to and some level. I recommend it to everyone.
