Myra Nour grew up reading s/f, fantasy, and romance, so she was really thrilled when these elements were combined in Futuristic Romances. She enjoys writing within all these elements, whether the hero is a handsome man from another planet, or a tiny fairy from another dimension. Myra’s background is in counseling, and she likes using her knowledge to create believable characters. She also enjoys lively dialogue and, of course, using her imagination to create other worlds with lots of action/adventure, as well as romance. She uses her handsome husband as inspiration for her heroes - he is a body builder, a soldier, and has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
For Tony and Jennifer, life is good — well, almost all of it. They've been married three years and love each other deeply. But their sex life suffers when Tony receives a promotion and Jennifer starts her own design business. Once their lovemaking had been wild and steamy, now it's often quick and boring.

Briana's dark and erotic dreams drive her from her bed to a deserted park where, come morning, she finds herself in another time and place, running from a terrifying wolf-man who insists upon practicing a highly sexual form of bonding with her. Is she still dreaming or just insane?Neither, as it turns out...

Nick's life was perfect. He was a successful businessman—and just as successful with the ladies. He had everything he wished, or so he thought. Then a lovely magical creature shook up his world and made him rethink what he valued.
Amira wanted only one thing—to escape the curse of the djinn. She had served many selfish masters through the millennia. Her hope was that one day a Master would discover the way to give her freedom.
Her new Master was a shock. He was darkly handsome, just like her long-dead lover Omar. However, it didn't take long for Nick to show his true colors as a charming but uncommitted playboy. But Amira gradually discovers admirable qualities in her Master, in spite of his self-centered lifestyle. Maybe it was Nick's physical similarity to Omar that drew her so strongly to him, but she isn't content to play out the typical djinn/Master role. Amira is determined to teach her Master there is more to life than physical lust and fulfillment.
Every time Nick makes a wish, Amira twists it in surprising ways. Although irritated at his beautiful genie for her tricks, he becomes more drawn to her sweet nature. Each wish he asks for is filled with hot women and wild sex—wishes most men would consider a dream come true. But Nick soon finds himself desiring just one woman's love—his genie.
