When a Taker Dreams

by J.A. Jackson




GENRE:   romance






In the captivating world of When A Taker Dreams, secrets unravel, and destinies collide. Meet Steele Coltrane, the enigmatic older brother of Ryker, and the illegitimate oldest son of their powerful father, Colbert Granger.

In Book I, Steele’s life takes an unexpected turn when he devises a risky plan to seduce his brother’s wife, Cierra, convinced that their child is his own flesh and blood.

However, the truth proves to be a harsh awakening for Steele. Cierra’s mother, Ada, delivers a devastating blow, revealing that the child is not his. Gripped by denial, Steele reluctantly confronts the undeniable evidence of a paternity test that shatters his world. Stranded in a desolate state of isolation and rejection, fate intervenes as Steele stumbles upon the woman of his dreams, a woman known only by her first name.

But there’s a catch. The mysterious woman, with her walls firmly in place, informs Steele that she never wishes to see him again. Determined to find her, win her back and unlock the key to his wounded heart, Steele seeks assistance from his younger sister, Isabella, a skilled and well-connected matchmaker. Entrusting Isabella with his quest, Steele embarks on a journey to find the elusive woman who holds the answers to his deepest desires.

Will Isabella’s matchmaking prowess be enough to reunite Steele with his soulmate, or will fate have a different course in mind? Discover the intricate web of love, secrets, and second chances in this tantalizing tale. When the past collides with the present, and hearts are laid bare, will Steele find redemption and the love he so desperately craves? Prepare to be captivated by the twists and turns of Steele’s tumultuous journey as he searches for the woman destined to mend his shattered soul.



Excerpt One:


Days later Steele and Ruby arrange to meet James at the Five Points Cocktail Bar on San Pedro Square and hurried over. 


Ruby loved the old glamorous gangster vibe the bar gave off. She was glad Steele picked a table located near the window facing San Pedro Square. 


Steele and Ruby sat together on one side across from James.


The Bartender walked over. “Any drink orders?”


“I’ll take a White Devil,” James chuckled. 


“In that case, I’ll have a Vatican City,” Steele said.


“Give me a Ready Aim Fire,” Ruby said. “In case I need to put a bullet in the White Devil.”


“That’s my girl,” Steele laughed. 


“So, what is our topic of conversation?” James asked. “Or should I guess?”
