One Heroine’s Journey: From Ordinary to Extraordinary
I love a heroine who can swing a sword, shoot a gun, and kick a guy in the satellites without breaking a sweat. These kick-ass heroines make for a fantastic and exciting read. Give me Kate Daniels (Ilona Andrews), Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs) or Raine Benares (Lisa Shearin) and I’ll hunker down with their adventures, racing to the end of the book, then sorry that it’s over.
But not every heroine starts out kick-ass. Sometimes watching a shy, uncertain woman blossom into a strong, take-no-crap heroine makes for a delicious, relatable read. Wouldn’t we all like to leave behind our doubts and fears and take on the villain? To win the hero and save the day?
An ordinary woman caught up in extraordinary events is a relatable heroine. She’s you and she’s me. We can be with her every step of the way when someone she loves is in danger and she has to be strong, has to do the impossible.
I love the moment when the heroine discovers she has far more power than she ever imagined. Don’t you?
Tanasha Omeiko, the heroine of my latest release, Tangled Hunger, is such a woman. In her world, status and power stem from one’s magical Gift. But sadly, Tanasha has none. She’s always felt substandard, second rate, closed off. But when her best friend falls into mortal danger, she’s forced to partner with a difficult and dangerous man. He’s the only one who can help her find her strength and the power within her, to save her friend. To save the world.
Come enjoy Tanasha’s story. Watch her grow as a person and a warrior. You’ll never want to let her go.

Blurb: Tangled Hunger by Tina Christopher
Tanasha Omeiko is powerless—an unusual and undesirable state for a Naema whose society deems power essential. She struggles to find her place, shunned by all but her best friend, Sydney. When that friend di
sappears, Tanasha suspects Sydney’s husband is responsible. To prove him guilty, Tanasha turns to cocky and sexy Vampire PI Duncan O’Clare.
Duncan distrusts Naemas, but when sweet and curvy Tanasha walks into his office, he’s instantly drawn to her. She makes him feel things he hasn’t in years—intrigued, enchanted…inflamed.
Tanasha isn’t sure what she feels. Lust and distrust make uneasy bedfellows when she and Duncan pose as lovers to spy on Sydney’s husband. Thrown way out of her comfort zone, Tanasha must decide if she wants to make this charade reality, risking her heart on a man so far out of her league he could be in another dimension. But Duncan surprises her at every turn.
Then she discovers not only her heart depends on her link to Duncan, but also the fate of the galaxy.
Talk about trouble.

He had to close his eyes for a moment.
His gaze narrowed and he released her. “I know you said your wings end up in an alternative dimension, but you didn’t mention your brain followed suit. Did you not just erupt in my arms like a volcano? Once we make it between the sheets we’ll set the planet on fire.”
