The Streets of Bucharest

Adult
Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Paul is a man without honour, broken in body and soul, betrayed by all he held dear, and driven beyond point of sanity by years of loneliness. He buys a girl and get more than he bargained for; a chance at redemption.
Catalina is in a living nightmare and finds help in the most unlikely of ways. Together they could do great things, if they don't betray and kill each other first.

About Gerard Whittaker

Once I was a soldier, getting blown up a few times convinced me that a change of career might be a good idea.However, given some of the jobs I've done since, being shot in the chest could be preferable to being stabbed in the back. I'm happily married with my wife helping me proof read my books.

I've studied military history, used most types of swords and medieval weapons. I spent a few years learning how to write and had my fair share of rejection slips. I'm still hoping to see my work in print. However, in the meantime, I want to share my worlds with the world at large. Perhaps someone might suggest ways to improve my writing. I've enjoyed writing "When Twilight Falls" intending to develop the story slowly with an ever increasing threat level. I've written about fourteen books so far, not all were completed. I was half way through a novel about an alien invasion with modern day US Airtforce taking on flying saucers. Then I saw a little film called Independence Day and sulked for a month.

There are too many Sci-Fi books written for children in my opinion. So I'm trying to write for adults, if that includes a bit of sex then so be it. Heroes are just normal people in extraordinary circumstances. When they get the job done, they are still just your average Joe with all the weaknesses of you or I. For some reasons most of my worlds are not very nice, I suppose the good worlds don't need saving. So there is plenty of scope for temptation in many forms for the 'Heroes' to fall into. When you put yourself in their place, wouldn't you give in to temptation too?

All the best to one and all. I wish you the best of luck in avoiding temptation.

I've just uploaded a short novel called "The Streets of Bucharest". I'm still working on the full sized book and expect it to be online shortly. I'm sorry I screwed up not loading the full version. But I did give it for free to make up for my mistake. The Full version of The Streets of Bucharest is now online. It's only 40,000 words but I hope you will enjoy it.

Just finished rewriting an old book of mine "The Bonds of Time". It was an experiment in erotic drama with a lot of BDSM thrown in. For anyone interested it also gives a short description of Aeden, a couple of years after the founding. It was not a very nice place when TIME was first being formed for self defense, and long before the Cosmic Guardians were even thought of to protect the Multiverse.

Finished Isralla and now working on a sequel called Enryn, using a new slant, telling of a war from the Marines' point of view.
I'm writing these with as little sex and as much action as the characters will let me. So if anything goes wrong, blame them!

Date 13 December 2010
Thanks for the rating, for a writer who lives and works alone any kind of a pat on the back is very welcome.

Sometimes I am intending to finish "Of Dusk and Dawn" in the New Year. But I admit to getting writer's block and being side tracked by Isralla and Enryn. I hope these books will keep you all amused till I can get back to D&D.

A word of warning, I've finished a new book called "The Cloud Knights". A sort of cross between Biggles and Sharp, set in a crazy world you will not recognise. So if you like the idea of bi-planes versus airships, politics and treason, and a hero determined to rise from the ranks to become a Cloud Knight, fighting for freedom in a world where everything is for sale to those with the rank to claim it. Then you might like it!

Currently working on a sequel called the Sky Knights, which will be big. And if that works I might round off the trilogy with the Star Knights.

I also draw my own book covers using DAZ Studio which explains how I keep uploading new covers.

Review by: jon muir on Sep. 23, 2011 :
This was a really enjoyable read, despite not being my favourite Genre. I would happily give it 5 stars except for one thing. The spelling in some cases was appalling, and if it was proof read then the Proofreader needs a new job. I will happily give it 4 stars and look forward to reading more by this Author
