Captain Lewis is THE guy all of us ladies would love to take home. He's THE guy all the other guys want to be.

He's just too busy saving the world to realize it.

Before he trained for Dr. Cass Baros' mission...Before he entered the wormhole leading to an alien world...

Before he unraveled the mystery of the Brajj and Master...

Captain Charles Lewis had a girlfriend,

A serious relationship with tequila,

And was married to the Army.

18+ due to language and a mild explicit scene

Captain Lewis' Broken Dreams is a quick jaunt through a favorite character's perspective on life, love and commitment. This story adds dimension to a strong man's sexiness and inner angst. A 5900+ word adult short story (approx 9-10 pages) featuring Captain Lewis. It gives a glimpse into his mind before the events in Dreams of the Queen while adding a touch of foreshadowing. Also, we meet Lewis' girlfriend Caroline for the first time and revisit Lt. Sam Brown.

Editorial Reviews

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/917764001?bo...Significant realizations for Captain Lewis. The short story
encompasses one evening and shows Lewis' tequila-soaked epiphanies, the
realizations and turning points that bring about big changes in the
course of his career, his love life, and no doubt sets up the series to
come. After reading this short story, I'm definitely interested in
reading more about this favorite character (Captain Lewis) whom fans had
asked Ms. Patricks to write more about!...hence this short story.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/694843651?bo.. Captain Charles Lewis is torn between two lovers--his gorgeous, rich girlfriend
and the Army. His pain and denial drip from the page in this
captivating very short prequel to the terrific SFR novel Dreams of the
Queen. Captain Lewis was my favorite character from Dreams of the Queen so this insight into his character and past was welcome.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/696849031?bo... As a fan of Dreams of the Queen, this shortie was like icing on the cake. Captain Charles Lewis was quite fascinating to me in the initial
story, so I jumped at the chance to get to know him a little better.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/691508051?bo... I truly enjoy reading Jacqueline's writing. I read her story about Captain Lewis in less than a day. It gave some good insight of what
kind of man Captain Lewis is. Enjoy this prequel to Dreams of the Queen. Highly recommend both stories.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/694215352?bo... This was certainly an easy quick read, very captivating because once you begin you can't put it down, you get so evolved in the story. I really
did enjoy this and I cannot wait to read more of Captain Lewis.
