Thanks for stopping by. I love to visit.
The De La Cruz Saga is an amazing emotional roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, and intense passion. It’s steamy material is a little erotic. The stories are well written, full of Mexican traditions, and culture. Enjoy their explosively passionate nature. The saga is a twelve book standalone series.
De La Cruz Saga contains Spanish. Saga has a subtle influence of Spanish and the Spanish becomes more laced (as the story progresses). I write in the present tense because I believe it puts the reader “IN” the action, rather than as part of an “after thought”. I believe it brings the characters to life! My writing is not traditional literature. It does not have the fluff (excessive description, stage, settings, prose). My intent is to have the reader visualize and feel the characters story. This is my voice, my style.
Enjoy the series that has a signature theme of intense passion, romance and drug cartel suspense. The De La Cruz Saga has captivating story lines and you never know for sure what will happen next.

Hot & Enchanting, De La Cruz Saga
He hasn’t looked for me again, thinks Jacki. Jacki goes to her desk and starts to work. I need to stop thinking about our hot encounters. Oh yeah, all I do is dream of making love. I need to forget him. He makes me so wanton. No more dreams. Si, I need to remember this. Ricardo Emanuel De La Cruz is not for me, hmmm, thinks Jacki turning on the computer.
Later in the day Jacki walks to the gym to work out. The gym is full of people and Ricky is there. He usually works out at lunch time, but today he didn’t. Ricky is on the treadmill and immediately sees Jacki walk in.
Damn yes, she’s here at the gym. I get to see her sweet ass and her work out, contemplates Ricky gazing into her eyes. Hell yes, she’s remembering our erotic hot moments. He continues to run observing her turn quickly away from him. She strides quickly into the women’s locker room.
Oh dios mio, Ricky is here working out, thinks Jacki blushing, gazing into his hermosos green eyes. Si he remembers and I’m so embarrassed, I acted incredibly wanton.
Jacki changes into her work outfit and walks out into the gym. She goes to do some weights attempting to avoid turning to look at Ricky.
I’m going to die. I can’t believe that he’s focusing on me and my workout. I don’t want to meet his gaze. I know that he’s also remembering our hot loving making. Oh I wish that I did have the right to go in the shower with him. I want to touch him and lather his entire body with my hands. Then I want to taste every inch of him until he begs for more. I better stop thinking about it, because I will get all worked up. It’s bad enough thinking of him at night, going crazy with the need to feel him near me and inside me. I’m going crazy with this pasión that he has awakened, thinks Jacki flushing.
Ricky observes Jacki work out with the weights the entire time that he’s finishing his workout.
Damn, she’s hot, and extremely sexy. I love her body. I know that she’s thinking about us. She’s flushed and not from the workout. I will never forget how she looks fully aroused with pasión. I can’t talk to her now, but I will. Eventually I will be able to talk to her and I will not let her go. Great, I’m done working out. I have to take a shower, because she has me all worked up. I know that the employees will notice. All of the guys are done and gone. There are only a few women finishing their workout, thinks Ricky getting off the treadmill.
He grabs his towel to wipe his face and the towel falls down covering his crotch. He then walks to the locker room to shower. Gracias dios mio, the men are all done. I have the locker room to myself. I wonder if she will walk in, yeah right, contemplates Ricky. He goes to his own private shower stall that’s only for la familia.

Meet The De La Cruz Primos!
Enjoy The Celebration!
The primos comprises of Jose Enrique, Nicolás, Alejandro Andres, Christian Arturo, Sebastian Antonio, Ricardo Emmanuel, and Francisco Javier. Los primos have always been exceedingly close. They are la familia’s hijos and have always done everything together.
Nick, Nicolas De La Cruz, is the second eldest of los primos. Nick departed a few years ago to work in another state. Los primos are oblivious to the true reason for his departure. He told los primos that he wanted to know that he can make it on his own. Los primos are still mystified and have missed him immensely.
Francisco Javier De La Cruz is the bebe en la familia. Javier decided to go into the Navy to explore different options and explore the world. However, Javier is still not sure if he wants to make the Navy a career or return to school.
Later that evening Ricky is waiting for his primo Alex to get off work. “Tony, Christian, I bet you that Jose Enrique is going to be real pissed off at us. I know he hasn’t heard our calls or seen our texts,” says Ricky inserting another cd into the car stereo.
“I know and Alex said he’s running late. He’s almost done,” says Christian. He leans to look out the window to look down the aisle of the parking lot.
“Well, I’ll text Alex again,” says Tony getting anxious to get to the club to have some fun. Sebastian Antonio De La Cruz is Ricky’s hermano. He’s the familia’s architect. The familia calls him Tony. He has designed the now famous and much in demand buildings with the Mexican influence and are Eco-friendly. Tony is considered one of the most talented architects in today’s market. Tony has contributed to the growth and success of the familia compania.
“There he comes,” says Ricky turning on the carro.
“Damn hermano,” says Christian shaking his head. Christian Arturo De La Cruz, or Chris, is a Navy SEAL. Chris lives for excitement. Chris loves it when the risk is great, dangerous, and complex.
“Yeah primos, it was busy,” says Alex sliding into the carro. Alejandro Andres De La Cruz is also known as el doctor Alex. La familia is truly proud of Alex. Alex is always there to help his primos in everything and anything.
Ricky, Alex, Christian, and Tony quickly exit the carro. They stride to the club. They approach Jose Enrique knowing he’s going to be pissed off.
Where are they? Jose Enrique stands at the bar with his ice cold Corona cerveza, looking for his primos Alex, Christian, Ricky, and Tony.
They’re never late. I wonder what they’re up to. We always meet every Friday at nine. Yeah, I really miss mi primo Nick when this type of shit happens with los primos. It’s already ten. Dios mio, I don’t want to look for them. I don’t want to wait for them, not tonight. It has been a long, hard week. Just thinking of how much mocking I’m going to get from los primos makes me want to walk out. I don’t want to discuss mi novia. Right, what novia? I’m still waiting for Paty to get me a novia. I feel like a loser. What happened? Why don’t I have a novia, ponders Jose Enrique.
He takes a drink of his Corona, trying not to choke, when he notices a bella, sexy chica with some other chicas at the other side of the bar.
“Hola primo, sorry we’re late,” says Alex slapping Jose Enrique in the middle of his back, causing him to choke on his Corona for the second time that night.
“What the hell!” exclaims Jose Enrique turning to see his primos, they’re laughing, shoving him against the bar counter.
“Where have you locos been? Why are you late? Here I am waiting for you fools,” says Jose Enrique with some annoyance. Jose Enrique turns around to catch another look at the hot chica, but she’s not there.
Jose Enrique gets angry and glares at his primos, he shakes his head, and quickly strides down the bar to where the chicas are talking and laughing.
The hot chica is not here. She’s gone, thought Jose Enrique. He strides back to where his primos are waiting for him at the other side of the bar. He continues to glare at them. Sometimes I just wonder if they have any brains in their big fat heads they carry on their wide shoulders. Dios mio, give me patience.
“What?” asks Alex, taking a drink looking at the other side of the bar trying to see what Jose Enrique is interested in.
“Why are you mad at us?” asks Ricky, waiting for Jose Enrique’s response. Damn, why is my primo so uptight lately? I wonder if his novia is causing issues, ponders Ricky observing his primo.
“What did we do?” asks Tony, shaking his cabeza.
“Are you okay,” asks Christian observing Jose Enrique extremely irritated.
Alex, Tony, Ricky, and Christian know that Jose Enrique is furious. They also know that he’s going to do something to them. Los primos know that they will be the ones to pay for Jose Enrique’s misery. Los primos can see that Jose Enrique is upset and uptight.
Well, is this some evidence that Jose Enrique is getting anxious over something? Maybe there is no novia? Maybe Jose Enrique and his novia had a disagreement or a break up, contemplates Ricky.
“Hey, Matt we need some Coronas,” calls out Tony to the bartender. Tony always makes sure to tip Matt really well, so they are never waiting for their Coronas.
“Who are you looking for Jose Enrique?” asks Ricky, looking around to see who it can be.
“Are you looking for tu novia?” asks Alex looking down the bar in the direction where Jose Enrique is looking. The bar has a group of chicas down at the far end. Maybe we’ll get lucky and finally meet Jose Enrique’s novia, thinks Alex.
“No, I’m just looking. Is that okay, Ricky?” asks Jose Enrique with anger.
“Why are you locos late?” asks Jose Enrique taking another drink of his Corona.
“We had to wait for Alex to finish his shift at the hospital,” answers Tony moving away from Jose Enrique’s fist.
“Do you want to go down the bar and see if we can meet the chicas?” asks Alex, watching how interested he is.
“No, I just want to relax,” says Jose Enrique sitting back down on the stool.
“Oh, man I want to party tonight,” says Ricky with irritation.
“So this means we’ll be leaving early tonight?” asks Tony, shaking his head.
“Primos you can party on your own. You don’t need me,” states Jose Enrique drinking up his Corona shrugging his shoulders.
“It won’t be the same without you, Jose Enrique. We always do everything together,” says Ricky turning to look at him.
“Well, you locos need to get used to it. I’ll be getting married soon. I know that my mujer will not like it if I continue to party with you fools,” says Jose Enrique with an evil smile.
“So this is for real?” asks Tony with a strained voice.
“I thought you were just messing with us,” says Christian shaking his head.
“Why are you keeping tu novia such a secret?” asks Alex, watching Jose Enrique smile. Damn, he is being a guey about this.
“We have always shared our secrets,” says Tony, waiting for his response.
“Matt, please give me another Corona,” shouts Jose Enrique to the barten
der. Mis primos are getting me stressed out. I am already anxious with the short time I have to get una novia. Dios mio, give me patience.
“I’m going to ask the chicas down the bar to dance,” says Ricky, getting up from the stool, I’m tired of pestering Jose Enrique. He will tell us when he’s ready, he reasons, shrugging his shoulders.
“Ricky! Wait for me,” says Tony following Ricky down the bar.
“Yeah,” says Christian walking toward the chicas with Ricky and Tony.
Ricky and his primos approach the group of chicas that are laughing at the end of the bar. It looks like they are having a great time. They look fun. Okay this is what I’m talking about. Here is a cute chica that looks wholesome. Yeah, sometimes I want to deal with a simple uncomplicated chica, thinks Ricky smiling at the cute chica. “Hola, do you want to dance muñeca?” asks Ricky smiling. Yeah, she’s not a beauty, but she’s cute.
“Hola, yeah I do, but I don’t want to leave mis amigas alone,” replies the chica smiling looking over at Tony and Christian.
“No worries, my primos would love to meet your amigas,” says Ricky smiling.
“Okay, what’s your name?” replies the chica looking Ricky over. Wow, this guy is muy cute. I hope that he likes me, thinks the chica smiling. “My name is Lily.”
“It’s a pleasure to meet you Lily. I’m Ricky De La Cruz,” says Ricky smiling at her. “These are my primos Tony and Christian.”
“Wow, I’m feliz to meet you Ricky. This is my amiga Rosa and Juana,” says Lily grinning.
“Hola,” says Christian smiling at the Rosa. “Do you want to dance?”
“Hi, yes I would love to dance,” says Rosa nodding, blushing. She takes Christian’s hand.
“Hi Juana, do you want to dance,” asks Tony smiling at the shorter cute young chica.
“Si, that’s why I came,” replies Juana laughing. “Let’s go.” She takes Tony’s hand. She pulls him to the dance floor.
“Well Lily, your amigas are now dancing with my primos. Do you want to dance or do you want to talk?’ asks Ricky gazing into her brown eyes.
“Si I want to dance,” replies Lily. She takes his hand and walks to the dance floor with him. “Do you come here often?”
“Si we come here to relax on Fridays after work. How about you?” asks Ricky looking down into her eyes? Okay it looks like she doesn’t do a thing for me. Damn, I want my hot muñeca, ponders Ricky.
“Si we come here, but we usually come here on Saturdays,” replies Lily smiling up at him. “That’s why I we never met, we come on different days.”
“Yeah, you’re right,” agrees Ricking looking at Christian and Tony’s expressions. Yeah, they don’t look like they’re real thrilled with these chicas. I think that I will dance a few songs with Lily. I should just go home. I’m tired anyway. I truly only want my hot chica. Oh yeah, thinks Ricky.
“Where do you work at?’ asks Lily looking up to see his hermosos green eyes.
“I’m into construction,” replies Ricky smiling. “Where do you work?” Yeah this is going to be interesting. I will be surprised if she works anywhere interesting, thinks Ricky.
“Ricky, I work at a junior high school in the office,” replies Lily. “Usually I have to stay home after work to help my mother take care of my younger sister. Today my mother was home and I was able to come out with my amigas.”
“Wow, it sounds like you have a busy schedule,” says Ricky nodding. Ricky continues to dance for a few songs and talks with the chica.

“Jose Enrique, are you okay?” asks Alex. “You haven’t been yourself these last few days.” Alex is always there to help his primos in everything and anything.
“I think you should stop by the hospital to get some tests done. I’m worried that you’re under a lot of stress lately,” says Alex taking a drink from his Corona. Alex looks at Ricky, Christian and Tony talking to the chicas.
“I’m okay, primo,” assures Jose Enrique, shrugging his shoulders. “All of our hard work is finally paying off. La familia, our padres should be able to enjoy their golden years.”
“Come on, Jose Enrique. Is it tu novia that’s causing you stress?” asks Alex, waiting for him to open up and talk.
“No, Alex. Everything is great with mi novia,” answers Jose Enrique smiling. Damn, Paty needs to come through for me, thinks Jose Enrique.
“Jose Enrique los primos are all worried about you. We all notice that you’re under a lot of stress. None of us has ever seen or met tu novia. We’re all concerned about you. We worry about tu novia being the right mujer for you,” says Alex looking at Jose Enrique with concern. “It’s not normal. Not one of us has met tu novia, and especially since you’re thinking of marriage.”
Alex shakes his cabeza. We need to meet his novia and make sure that she loves him and not our dinero reasons Alex.
“The entire familia will meet her soon,” says Jose Enrique not wanting to talk about it anymore. “Mi novia works long days and is out of town on business often,” states Jose Enrique looking at Ricky, Christian and Tony flirt with las chicas.
“Okay. Just let me know if you need anything,” says Alex turning to look at los primos talk to the chicas. “You know we’re here for you.”
Taking a drink from his Corona, Jose Enrique nods his cabeza at his primo. “I’m okay Alex. Tell los primos adios. I’m tired and I’m going to have an early night,” says Jose Enrique and he walks towards the door.
“Si primo, buenas noches,” replies Alex watching Jose Enrique leave early.
“Okay muñeca, It was a pleasure to meet you. I have to go,” says Ricky walking the chica back to the bar where her amigas are talking to Christian and Alex.
“Are you two ready to go? Remember that we have to get to work early to go to work at the construction site,” says Ricky. Si, this is our standard line to get away from the chicas that we don’t click with. It always works awesome, thinks Ricky nodding.
“Si primo, you’re right. It’s getting late,” replies Christian nodding. “It was nice to meet you Rosa, adios chicas.”
“Yes it was,” replies Rosa blushing nodding.
“Juana, I have to leave also. We all work at the construction site. It was awesome to meet you. Maybe I’ll see you next week,” say Tony smiling. “Okay primo, I’m ready to leave, adios.”
“Nice to meet you guys,” says Lily smiling. “Adios.”
Ricky, Christian and Tony return to where Alex is sitting and drinking the last of his Corona.
“Okay primo, where did Jose Enrique go?” asks Ricky looking around. “I’m done here. I’m tired of talking to these chicas.”
“Wow that’s amazing,” says Alex grinning. “Why didn’t you like her?”
“I don’t know. It did not feel right. No reaction at all,” says Ricky shrugging. “Maybe I’m tired of messing around with all of the chicas. It’s starting to get old.”
“Si primo that is amazing,” says Christian asking for a Corona. “Let me have another Corona before we leave.”
“Ricky I can’t believe what you’re saying. You always enjoy las chicas that chase you,” says Tony laughing taking a drink of his Corona.
“Si primo that is unusual, maybe I should have you committed,” says Alex laughing.
“Si gueys, you can laugh all you want. I’m not in the mood to flirt or to be close to any chica tonight,” says Ricky shrugging.
Si, I’m tired of these games. I’m tired of these chicas that I know I will never see again. They’re not worth it. I’m tired of being another hombre in their vida. I want one that truly loves me. I want one that is mia, only mia, ponders Ricky gazing out the window. I want my hot sexy muñeca that drives me loco. She makes me burn when I hold her in my arms. Yeah, but I can’t look for her at work.
“Are you gueys ready?” asks Ricky turning over to look at his primos.
“Si, I’m ready,” replies Tony.
“I’ll go back with Alex,” replies Christian looking at Alex nod.
“Okay see ya later primos,” says Ricky walking out the club with Tony following him
Ricky and Tony head back home. Ricky is stressed and anxious. I need to see my hot sexy chica. This is so damn hard. I don’t know her name, I don’t have her number, and I can’t talk to her at work. Damn it all to hell, I need her, thinks Ricky walking to his cuarto.
“Buena noches Ricky,” says Tony walking to his cuarto.
“Si, buenas noches hermano,” replies Ricky turning the corner to go into his cuarto. Damn it all to hell, I need to get something from my carro.
Welcome A.L. Jackson to my blog. It’s awesome to have you visiting. Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey everyone! I’m A.L. Jackson, author of Pulled, Take This Regret, When We Collide, and Lost to You. I’m over here in Southern Arizona where I spend my days writing wrapped up in a zebra Snuggie J Don’t laugh. I hate winter.
How did you decided to enter the world of writing?
I’ve always loved writing. I used to carry a journal around with me in college, and I wrote a lot of poetry at that time. It wasn’t until years later when I had the idea for Pulled that I finally decided to sit down and write a novel.
What does your family think of your writing?
They’re all really supportive. My husband is the best. I can often get really lost in my head when I write, so I know that has to be frustrating for family. It means so much that they all respect what I do and support me through it all.
Where do you get your ideas?
So far with all of my books, one character has just shown up in my head. I can see their face and get some kind of idea of their situation. I’m sure there’s something that triggers it, but I haven’t ever been conscious of it. Then I build the story and other characters around that idea.
Can you tell us a little about your book?
My newest release is a novella called Lost to You. It’s the prequel to Take This Regret, and shows us how Elizabeth and Christian first got together. I was really nervous to write a novella, but I ended up enjoying this so much.
What is your writing process?
Normally when a story idea comes to me, I think on it for a while, and then try to begin jotting down some ideas. I do write an outline and try to break the concept down into chapters so I have a good grasp on where I want to go with the story. From there, I write chapter by chapter. And then of course a big edit at the end.
What was the hardest part for you when working on your book?
I’m an impatient person and I like everything done NOW. But I’m a slow writer. In every aspect of my life, I work really quickly and love the results, so the amount of time it takes me to write can be kind of frustrating. I’m slowly coming to accept that it just takes me a while to get these stories down.
Was there a scene that you didn’t add or you removed in your finished work?
Not in Lost to You. The end result basically ended up the same as my first draft (but with editing, of course) and one extra scene I ended up adding at the end. But I definitely have deleted scenes in my full-length books.
Do you have a favorite character (from your book)? Why?
In Lost to You, definitely Christian. He’s so easy to fall in love with, but he’s also incredibly flawed. I love being in his confused thoughts.
Do you already know what to write next? Can you tell us?
Yes, I have an outline ready for my next book. I don’t have a name yet, but I can tell you it will be an NA romance. No long flashbacks this time, just a lot of intensity and angst.
Where can we find more information about you and your books?
I’m all over the web. Find me at:
Do you have any last words?
Just want to thank you for asking me on, and a big thank you to everyone for taking the time to read.
My pleasure A.J., I enjoyed learning all about you and your books. I hope that you visit soon.
