Product Description

Romantic Mystery Thriller!


After her erotic romance novels become international bestsellers, writer Gillian Tate cannot enjoy her long-sought success once her husband files for divorce and she becomes the target of threats from a religious fringe hate group that believes it is on a mission from God; but when she tries to find peace in the solitude of a remote lakeside cabin to complete the third novel in her ménage trilogy, not only does she meet the man who can fulfill her secret desires, she also finds she hasn’t escaped danger by leaving the city.

When the Adirondack town's police chief Sam Taylor learns of the threats and checks in on the notorious author, he is surprised to find she is nothing like he would have expected from her erotic novels but everything he has imagined in his own fantasies.

Can he and the woman of his dreams escape her waking nightmare?

Adult Content: This erotic romantic suspense includes scenes of bondage between consenting adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a terrific story. Hawthorne's romantic suspense kept the subplot exciting ... 8 November 2014

Wow! What a terrific story. Hawthorne's romantic suspense kept the subplot exciting while the steamy romance kept me turning the page. The setting of the Adirondacks in a lakeside cabin was perfect, drawing me in with eloquent imagery. I enjoyed the contrast of Sam's perception of an erotica author to what he actually found when he met Gillian--someone who could easily steal his heart, and did.

Overall, a terrific story with a suspenseful plot to propel the story forward and a sexy romance between characters you're rooting for to the very end.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet romantic suspenseful 30 November 2014

Gillian is recently divorced and needs some time away to work on her third novel. She has an upcoming deadline and is struggling, especially since she's started getting hate mail from some religious group. Her best friend Jack, also a writer, let's her use his parents cabin so she can escape and do the writing she needs. With no phone or internet service, she won't have any interruptions.

When more threats are delivered to her agent, the local police chief is called to check on her. When Gillian meets Sam, their immediate attraction to one another is so sweet. He's a great guy and they are so cute together.

With the threats continuing and even a death, will the police be able to catch the person after Gillian before he kills her, and other people she cares about?

This was an easy to read story about finding the perfect person to love. Thrown in was a little suspense and mystery.

Great read. I am not a fan of murder mystery, but I found this one well written. It was hard to put it down. I changed my mind a couple of times about who the murderer was, and I was still surprised. I recommend this book for expsecially those who are into murder mystery.

The suspense and the romance were well-balanced. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the plot, and I loved the surprise twist of who the murderer was. Great job! I'll be looking for more books from Ms. Hawthorne.
