Behind the huge glass doors of The Ranch is a world of lust, temptation, extravagance, and glamour.  This powerful tale chronicles the journey of five intriguing women who sought to better their lives by entering to one of the world's oldest professions known to man.  

Although each woman is so different from one another, and stems from such varied backgrounds, all five women still shared a common bond-the desire to improve life as they knew it.  Mia, a young newlywed in the midst of financial problems wanted to secure enough money to pursue her dream of opening her own dental practice.  Bre, an aspiring model, needed additional funds to travel to the larger cities and build her portfolio.  

Omyra, tired of being reliant upon one abusive boyfriend after another, looked for financial freedom to be independent.  Kai, robbed of a childhood and tired of having the weight of the world on her shoulders, needed excessive amounts of money to support her rock star partying lifestyle.  Crystal, a teenage mother and thrown out of her home, was determined to get through college with or without a scholarship.  The lure of money, however, proved to be too strong as each of these dreams of these women began to fade behind the green tint of the almighty dollar.  The potential to earn unbelievable amounts of money also came with the nightmarish reality of sex, drugs, betrayal, and murder.  This is a story about ordinary women who got caught up in an extraordinary life.  These women faced disrespect for their choices, and pined to be forgiven for their mistakes.  

Five women who searched for the chance to love and be loved ended up struggling with challenges that they never thought awaited them as the well dressed doormen escorted them down a life changing corridor.  Once, you enter into The Ranch, you just might not leave the same way you came.

We know you have many choices for purchasing books, and appreciate your business. It is my pleasure to provide you with a high-quality page turner novel. “THE NIGHT TRADE” is the emotionally-charged story of five strong-willed, ambitious and intelligent young women whose paths may have varied, yet led them all to one common destination-the "glamorous‟, lucrative, and sometimes dangerous world of exotic dancing. “THE NIGHT TRADE” was written to demonstrate the camaraderie, love, struggles, and plight of those women who resort to using the art of "seductive entertainment‟ in order to overcome their adversities, improve their lives or merely feel a sense of belonging and self-worth. It's time to stop "judging a book by its cover‟ and actually open the book. The "preface‟ just may interest you. And if you are not careful, you may even learn something. As it can be argued that professional exotic dancers are the victims of exploitation, there is also the counterpoint that these individuals have benefited from and capitalized on this business. This fictional scroll is a reflection of these women, as they are depicted in a realistic light and not stereotyped as home wreckers, sexual objects, or groupies. The women are real...their stories, unfortunately, are even more real. Welcome to The Night Trade!
