What happens when you meet the right woman at the wrong time? Against all reason, Karma and Jane are drawn together, soulmates destined to fall in love. A few sweet kisses and an acute sense of homecoming lead the young women to believe that they might have met their “one.” However, despite their love and attraction, the two women are torn apart by their fundamental differences. Brought up in a religious family, Jane is convinced being a lesbian is a sin. Controlled by an emotionally abusive mother, Jane has learned that living under the radar is the best way to survive. Ashamed of her homosexuality, and embarrassed by Karma’s unapologetic lifestyle, Jane decides to come out in the best way that she can—by dating a woman who is also in the closet. Karma, raised to be proud of herself exactly the way she is, somehow finds herself in an abusive relationship with the darkly sexy Crash. Unable to extricate herself, and shamed by Jane’s apparent embarrassment of Karma’s vibrancy, she gives up on the idea of a happily ever after and focuses instead on becoming the woman Crash wants. A set of deeply complex supporting characters alternately help and hinder Karma and Jane as they set out to discover if there is a chance for the two of them, or if true love really only comes once in a lifetime.

Tragedy and heartbreak drive Dana McComb to a Caribbean island where she sets about to becoming a hermit. Settling into numbness seems to be the only way to suppress the psychic visions that once showed her the death of her soul mate. A failed rebound relationship leaves her even more intent on losing herself in the loneliness of her isolated house on the hill. With her middle-aged, beef jerky obsessed Tom cat, Dana vows to live a life devoid of ups and downs. Making fun of her own state of mind, she and her best buddy start "The Love Sucks Club" which is really just a euphemism for sitting around bitching about their own bitterness about love. Trying to stay wrapped in her own misery starts to fail when Dana's pesky younger sister and a host of other island misfits insist on poking into her best laid plans for comfort. When a new woman shows up on island, bringing back Dana's visions, she is suddenly besieged by night terrors, vivid hallucinations, and panic attacks. Half-convinced she's going crazy, Dana tries to shut out her past with increasing difficulty. Aware that it may be the only way to put her dead lover to rest, Dana begins a journey that could either shatter her life or save it.

Man Enough was my first book and it was a labor of love. And though I had sensitivity readers and did a lot of research, the language around gender identity has changed so much in the past decade, the book is wildly out of date. While I still love everything about this story, I've stopped sales of it to give it a gender-identity update. I will let you know as soon as it is back on the market.
