So, there I was surrounded by a huge number of authors, sitting at a dinner during an RWA conference, when the speakers (mostly editors for Traditional publishers) were telling the crowd that right then, mob crime suspense was hot.
I had begun writing romantic suspense with my Vegas Series and had found my niche. I loved creating stories that were full of conflicts, sassy heroines, and filled with sizzling romance. Add in humor and fast-paced action, and I was in my element.
I’ll admit those words resonated and I decided I could write a book with that theme. So, I began plotting a mob-crime story which ended up as six and became the Her Sweet Revenge Series. Those books just spilled out, and I loved writing every word. I suspect the readers have enjoyed them too because I still have three in the series rating 4.8 out of 5. Yep – that means the readers like them. (Thank you, Lord!)
In the first book – Retaliation – I visualized a naïve, young woman called Cassidy Santino who follows her twin brother one night. Worried because he’s been hanging with the wrong crowd, she overcomes her fear and sees something that changes her life forever.
An Amazon top reviewer had this to say –
“I confess that I purchased this book a while back and am just now getting around to reading it. The blurb captured my attention, but the length of the book made me wait until I had time to read it through. I’m glad I waited since I sure didn’t want to put it down once I started. Cassidy is a “good” girl who finds that when tested she has a backbone of steel and the determination to see things through. The death of her brother really brings her out. Trace is the detective on her brother’s case and doesn’t need anymore havoc in his life. They will work together to solve the crime and bring justice but there are obstacles to overcome — some from the enemy and some from each other. I enjoyed the growth both Cassidy and Trace experienced during the course of the story and of course their steamy relationship. Fast paced, with danger and stress, a great read that you won’t want to stop until you’ve finished – you’ve been warned – plan to read it through.” ~ reviewed by MyOhMy
