It’s been twenty years since the horrible incident that changed the lives of Taj and Cheyenne—but there is still hope that they can free themselves from the memories and feelings that haunt them and bound them together.
Imagine you are in New York City two weeks before Christmas. Snow covers the ground and lights twinkle along the streets as warmly dressed shoppers brave the elements. An aging church beckons you with its open doors, and the sweet songs from carolers assail your senses. As you move closer and join in with the singing, you suddenly hear a voice whispering a phrase that you haven't heard in ages. You turn slowly as the color drains from your face, and you find yourself facing him, the person you haven't seen in twenty years.
Thus begins Jasminium, a novel that introduces Taj and Cheyenne. They were young when they met, but a horrific experience robbed them of their innocence. Seeing each other again brings back haunting memories and feelings of passion that have lain dormant, just below the surface, and seemingly out of reach. Jasminium explores the path taken by these two people as they attempt to free themselves from the ghosts of their pasts and reconnect with the feelings and emotions that have bound them inexplicitly together.
