About the Book
.
Bound to Tradition Book 1: The Dream
.
What do you do when the man you love with a searing passion is determined to be your father? You cling to The Dream.
.
Khira is an enigma; born to African traditionalist and conservative family but schooled by Europeans she is prim and proper, proud, graceful, and dignified with a hint of wildness. She is also beautiful, mysterious, and has this paradoxical sexual appeal. But she is also young, and in need of guidance.Twenty-four years her senior, Erik is determined to be the one that mentors her. His first line of business is to continue her education abroad, but Khira has other plans.
.
Erik awakens the woman in Khira and she clings to The Dream of making him hers. Consumed by desire and craving to be possessed by him, she embarks on a relentless quest to seduce him.
.
Erik is intrigued by her, but will he succumb to the sizzling temptations of an ardent 16-year-old seductress in a land where she is of legal age? Or will Erik’s good intentions prevail?.

Bound to Tradition Book 2: The Initiation
.
Every human spirituality is composed of rituals, rites of passages, & sacred ceremonies. Having been born into a traditionalist and conservative family in Luoland Kenya, Khira is determined to share this with her daughter Loyana—even if it is against her husband’s expressed wishes. Loyana is of the age to go through the Initiation, one of Luoland’s more important Rites of Passage, and she is as eager as her mother to see it through. So they lie and have the Initiation performed in Luoland. A day later, during a weekend safari trip in the remote and breath-taking Tsavo National Park, the ladies of the Lindquist family are still determined to keep their secret although Loyana falls seriously sick as a result of the Initiation she underwent. Loyana unfortunately reacts badly to the traditional herbs used during the Initiation and becomes deathly ill, her mother Khira shouldering overwhelming guilt for inadvertently poisoning her beloved child. When her husband Erik learns of the betrayal he is overcome with grief and rage, and another unfortunate and tragic event leads to Khira lying next to her daughter in a coma. Desperate to save his wife and daughter Erik is willing to do whatever it takes to get them the medical help they need—but in the remote stretches of Tsavo, that means dangerous dealings and bribery. Will help arrive in time for mother and daughter? Or will the Initiation be the beginning of the end?

“This is not only exotic, culturally stimulating and not run-of-the-mill Harlequin, it’s an intercultural study. The book is for the discerning and culturally savvy Africanists. Ever heard of A Many Splendoured Thing? Well this is the African version of that.” Karen Ammond, Elite Professionals Magazine

Bound to Tradition Book 3: The Separation
.
The coma patient screamed her inaudible words: Who am I? Who is this man crying over me in my bed? Answer me! Why can’t you hear me?
.
So begins the final book in the Bound to Tradition trilogy, which continues the story of the Lindqvist family. Khira and Loyana have been brought to a private clinic in Glion-sur-Montreaux Switzerland to recover from vastly different ailments. Loyana was inadvertently poisoned during a Luoland female coming-of-age ceremony arranged for her by her mother Khira. Upon discovering his wife’s deceitful hand in his beloved daughter’s illness, Erik lashed out at Khira, leaving her in a coma. Although both are slowly recovering, it will be an exceptionally hard road back to her life and her beloved family for Khira.
.
Erik has no idea how to cope with anything other than his business empire where he is supremely confident in his competence and controls everything with iron-clad leadership – the very qualities he sorely lacks when it comes to taking care of his children and their comatose mother. He handles this double tragedy in the only way he can, leaving Khira and his children in the capable hands of his parents and Khira’s girlhood friend Joyce, while he returns to Nairobi to bury himself back in his business dealings where he is most comfortable. But instead of business as usual, new trouble strikes, forcing him back to Europe to deal with them personally.
