Deadly Sins: an organized crime thriller by Laura Read

DEADLY SINS is a dark crime thriller with a twisted love story at its heart.

Angela Balanescu, daughter of an organized crime boss, yearns to leave the town in which she grew up, instead of using drink and sex as escapism. Her father feeds on power, solely focused on how he can gain more territory. Vincent, her father’s lieutenant, feels no remorse torturing and killing those who betray the family.

When Angela develops feelings for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent wants her for himself, and she is drawn deeper into family politics. Soon she is plotting to kill her father’s partner, and she is forced to choose between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
DEADLY SINS is an organized crime thriller/romantic suspense, which explores the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. I wanted to write something dark that crosses genres and focuses on a female protagonist who wants more power. My protagonist, Angela, feels powerless because she's the boss's daughter, and she uses drink and sex to escape her life. She falls for a corrupt detective and faces a choice between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life. It's similar to THE SOPRANOS but told mainly from a female perspective.

A Date with Fate by Tracy Ellen

Book Description
Welcome to the world of Anabel Axelrod!

Hold on to your seat for the beginning of a fun ride! This is not your traditional romance wrapped up in a nice box and tied with a HEA pretty bow. A Date with Fate is the debut novel by Tracy Ellen, and the first volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series. Experience action, sex, wit, romance, mystery, mayhem, friends, family, flashbacks, fantasies, much laughter, and an “OMG!” cliffhanger–all in one roller-coaster ride of a wild weekend!

Smart and sexy bookstore owner Anabel Axelrod is happily satisfied with the routine of her life. She enjoys her work, the occasional company of good friends and family, and casual dates with men that are willing to follow her ironclad rules on dating.

Not too tall, deliciously dark, and definitely not handsome, the mysterious Luke Drake is a new man in town. When they meet, Anabel realizes Luke is the same man that she saw briefly in her bookstore months ago. They had never actually spoken, but sparks flew and worlds collided when their eyes clashed across the room that day.

It soon becomes apparent Luke has set his sights on Anabel, but he is no follower of rules and control is his middle name. Falling crazy in lust and sharing her darkest desires with an experienced man like Luke was definitely not in Anabel’s plans. She loves being single and will allow no man to control her, but Luke has persuasive ideas of his own.

But Anabel’s intense desire for Luke Drake is not her only concern. The slutty wife of a friend has gone missing, an employee at her store is attacked by an abusive ex, and the man who broke her heart years ago returns to town. Anabel’s orderly life dissolves into chaos. In A Date with Fate, the question remains–will the sassy, blonde bookseller follow her own rules to stay single, or will she understand that life is never simple and a certain mesmerizing complication may be worth the risk, even if it kills her?

The next two books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series, Courted by Karma and In Love by Design, are available for purchase at all major booksellers. Adieu to Destiny is available for preorder and will be released in November 2014.

*This series is meant for the entertainment of an adult, mature audience. Please do not buy/read my books if scenes containing strong sexual situations, moderate violence, and explicit language offend you.
