My new book Seduction of Wealth is a standalone story – as are all the books in the series. They follow a theme: sassy female London police officers get involved in international crime-action adventures and fall in love. Woven through the thriller/mystery is the steamy love story of how they get together with a character involved in the drama.
It’s not always clear at the outset if the object of their affections is on the side of good or evil, but of course, they always turn out to be good guys so readers are guaranteed a happy ever after ending.
Although they are stand alone and could be read in any order, there are characters from earlier books that pop in and out of the later editions – so if you’ve read the others in the series you’ll recognize previous cop heroines and heroes – but you don’t need to know about their stories to enjoy the current book you’re reading.
The books are mixed-genre – a love story woven through a ‘whodunnit’. I’ve had great reviews from male thriller readers as much as lovers of suspense romance. Having said that, the books are currently pitched far more at the romance market as some thriller readers find the steamy explicit nature of the romances too strong for their tastes. I’ve not found any romance readers complaining that there’s too much action and adventure in solving the crime elements.
So, I guess what I’m saying is that these books are definitely for the over 18s – they are not erotica, but the bedroom door is very much wide open throughout the intimate moments in the story. So, for readers, they should be aware these books feature hot steamy scenes – not kinky or illegal – just straight forward passionate sex between consenting adults in a loving relationship.
As well as this, because of the police action, there is occasional bad language and mild violence (those criminals just don’t always give up gently without a fight!). My partner is an ex-London cop and Interpol detective, so I have a wealth of stories from him and he’s always very keen for authentic behaviour.
So, whilst I know some folk don’t like cussing and hard action, it’s there to be true to the story – and is often the truth as most aspects of my book are based on real-life experiences of my partner.
This next book will be the sixth title in the collection. The story starts in London and journeys through France and Italy by way of the USA. I have worked a lot in the USA and currently live in the UK and France and visited locations in Italy last summer, so I hope this gives an authentic feel to my stories.
I know that the international flavor is one of the aspects of my books that readers enjoy – taking them back to fondly remembered cities or introducing them to places they haven’t yet been.
