Author has written 27 stories for Janet Evanovich.

Hi! Welcome to the world of mercenary Ranger. Right from the start I was intrigued by Ranger: who is he really, where does he go "in the wind", is he a thug, a mercenary, an ex-army Ranger/Special forces operative really? Or--not? And if not, what? And--just what goes on in his head when he sits there mostly silent and looking hot? Let's hear his side of the story this time!

My mercenary Ranger fics tell his story--in my Plum world.

My stories are always BABE.

Chronology

You can read my stories in any order, however here is the list.

This is the story list in *Approximate* order. Titles in brackets are on my blog. However I usually suggest people read Take a Chance, Half Past Eleven, The Price is Right, Mercenaries R Us..in that order, then go back and read the other fics. Blog link is above. On my blog The Dance Club is a standalone story, but the characters' history is correct. Stories not listed below either are not in the Take a Chance story line or can be read at any time. [OffLine] is Anthony's solo fic.

Shelter and The Price is Right are my personal favorites...enjoy. Stories on my blog are less mainstream in subject matter sometimes.

I don't write sappy romances if I can avoid it. If you love talky mushy romantic Ranger , well, he s not here. Please go and enjoy him elsewhere.
