When You Dance with the Devil begins right where Poetry In Motion left off, taking us further into the lives of Deven and Rhian as they face the challenges and opportunities created by their newly formed relationship, as well as the various other interpersonal associations within their lives. Is their bond strong enough to overcome the pressures of trying to create a life together? And are they, as individuals and as a couple, willing to accept the changes they both will have to make?

As if the complications of a developing relationship weren’t enough, throw into the mix a rocky path of self-discovery that is further disrupted by the convergence of past and present - points of complex growth and change that can only challenge the very foundation of their friendship. When Deven’s personal demons become reality, can she find within herself the fortitude to face the most extreme fight of her life? And will Rhian be able to come to terms with the outcome? Dancing with the devil will only get you burned, and when the smoke finally settles, what will rise from the ashes?

It always rains in Manchester - or at least, that's how Nia feels. She's the manager of a bar in the centre of the grey metropolis, and suffers from its connection with the city's rotten underbelly. Gangsters dominate her every move, and she feels in thrall to the darkness around her.

Jake is imposing, mysterious, and probably deadly. When she strides into Nia's life, the bar manager ought to run a mile. Instead, the appearance of the dark woman seems to offer her a ray of light. Both must weather storms past and present as they explore their connection, and Nia finds herself looking for proof that her new love will stand firm when the clouds begin to swell.

The story mingles sunshine and rain, laughter and tears, in the relationship between these two passionate, complex women. Nia and Jake come up against the realities of heartbreak and the walls people build to protect themselves from it. And in the effort to tear these down, they embody the universal hope that perhaps it might be different - this time.

Alexis Dorian may have been born with a silver spoon in her beautiful mouth, but that doesn't guarantee success in her love life. Just as she is about to give up on the hope of ever finding her elusive soulmate, Samantha Riley materializes one summer's evening, right before her eyes, on her private beach in Laguna, California. The vivacious blonde catches the eye and then captures the heart of the solemn raven-haired executive. Drawn together by a force neither can explain, they follow their instincts, as their immortal souls reunite.

But, even paradise has its share of snakes. Destructive elements enter their world, wreaking havoc on the lives of the new lovers and forcing them to deal with circumstances beyond their control. The dilemma they find themselves facing will either destroy the budding romance or strengthen the growing bond between the two, but it has to be faced before they can continue their life together.

'Letter to America' is a rather dark piece that focuses on the feelings of a woman imprisoned in a refugee camp at a time of war. Warning - the imagery and language used, and the emotions expressed, are not pretty.
