DANGEROUS AND DESIRABLE

by C. Michael Bennis

Two dangerous assassins from different parts of the world seek a respite from danger in each others arms, only to discover their exposure to violence now grows exponentially.

Ziv Yadin is Mossad’s foremost assassin who will one day return to Tel Aviv and marry her childhood sweetheart.  Then she meets the Argentinian, Julio Navarro, who has the changing effect similar to an aphrodisiac.  He stimulates her desires and overpowers her forewarning of his impending danger.  Already it is too late when she sees him kill her two dangerous assailants in two seconds.

Julio Navarro’s dossier is so highly classified that to know his identity is tantamount to instant death.  Nevertheless, Julio is so smitten with the beautiful Ziv, whose combat talents rival his own, that he quickly forgets there is no place for love in his dangerous life.  Julio at once knew he should avoid the Israeli like the plague, but similar to Ziv it was already too late to put out the flames in his heart.

Ziv and Julio are unprepared when Julio’s former love, Claudia Bazan, resurfaces from six-years ago, and begs via messenger for Julio to save her from immanent death in Culiancan.  Unable to refuse, Julio travels to save a woman he no longer loves, while Ziv soon follows to rescue the man she can no longer live without.  Both Julio and Ziv are quickly in immediate danger …  It is 2007,  and Caliacan is the most dangerous place on the planet.

C. Michael Bennis Author- RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

by C. Michael Bennis

A torrid summer romance between a Parisian debutant and a Boulder, Colorado grad ends in heartbreak until they meet twenty-two years later for a final chance to reignite an unforgettable love.

Unrestrained passions and exotic locales are key elements in RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, a savvy debut by C. Michael Bennis.  With a pitch perfect prose and unforgettably naughty characters, new romance author Bennis offers a winning combination that tells of the underbelly of the advertising world and the softest sides of true love.  In the summer of 1964, two college graduates meet in a London club.  While their attraction is palpable, Nicole is engaged to the premier’s son and is Parisian aristocracy; dutiful to a fault she can’t help but fall headfirst for Alex, a Colorado native who is a little rough around the edges.  As they decide the course of their affair, Nicole comes up with the RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.  Over the next nine days they agree not to fall in love and not to reveal their identities.  Reunited by chance over two decades later, the magic is still there.  One is married, one is not … both will begin to understand that love and passion endures despite time, circumstance, and reason.

“Bennis tempts and tantalizes … this narrative has enough twists and turns to satisfy a mystery lover, and the characters are endearing.” – Kirkus Discoveries

Society of Southwestern Authors- August 19, 2012 Forum C. Michael Bennis UNLOCKING THE CREATIVE PROCESS

UNLOCKING THE CREATIVE PROCESS

Presentation by C. Michael Bennis at the Society of Southwestern Authors’ August 19, 2012 Forum

C. Michael Bennis will discuss the inspiring, funny, perplexing, insulting, provocative and egotistical albeit loving world of the creative process. “I might threaten your sex life, your marriage and your safe driving record. I might even entice you into the excitement and mystery of falling in love with your characters.” The presentation is about writing fiction that gets out of control. “I plan to bridge the gap between hearing and listening, both to you and to others. The purpose is to identify creative tools that are so cool you will never fear writer’s block. Be prepared to put on your mental track shoes. Know that you can do this. Then take a deep breath, and accept that once you start, there will be no going back.”

Michael studied at Complutense University in Madrid, and graduated from the University of Colorado where he was part of the 1961 University of Colorado Big 8 Champion football team as well as the 1962 Orange Bowl squad. He also graduated from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, which led to a career in international advertising, marketing and public relations.

He has written successful advertising copy, served as director of Communication for a major toy company, and author four 90,000-word novels, with two published Romance Novels in circulation: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT (2009), and SIGNS OF DESTINY (2012).
