First and foremost, I’m an action movie junkie and I’m proud to say my teenage daughter is one too. She tends to go for the fantasy or sci-fi, while I go for the fast cars, shoot-em-up, or mystery. One common theme about books or movies we both enjoy is a strong romantic element. Therefore, when I started writing, it was natural for me to write romantic suspense to blend my two loves of entertainment.
A Mystery Romance
She thwarted a killer's attack. He's off the case because of their prior involvement. Now, they're at the top of the hit list...
Aleks Levin promised herself she'd never become a victim again. Out for a late evening run, she spies something terrible: a killer attempting to murder his next victim. Aleks interrupts the deed and saves the woman's life, but in the process she becomes the only witness to the U-District Strangler's brutal attacks. Refusing protective custody, Aleks has a better idea for keeping safe: pretending to date a detective on the case...
Neal Hawkins never knew if he'd see the alluring Aleks again, but he certainly didn't expect such life-or-death circumstances when he did. After their prior involvement gets Neal kicked off the case, he can't help but continue to investigate as the killer creeps closer to his next victim... her. The detective knows that sheltering Aleks is the best way to keep her safe, though he wonders if there's any way to suppress the sparks that start flying the minute she crosses his threshold.
Caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, old wounds and secret lives threaten to reveal the Strangler's identity. Can Aleks and Neal stop the killer before his reign of terror continues with them?
