What inspired you to write your book?
I’ve always enjoy romance in my novels, but they were usually formulaic, so I set out to write something darker with an edge while keeping the romance intact.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Things get complicated for Lucky as her feelings for Kenji bubble to the surface…
“I’m not…good at this anymore.” Lucky puffed out a heavy breath and clutched the phone. “I can’t wrap my mind around it. I’ve really tried to forget you.”
“Because, I can’t want…this.”
“What do you mean?”
“Be with someone while doing what I do. Sharing my life… I haven’t for a long time. I don’t see how I can do it with—”
That stopped her cold. Lucky shut her eyes and banged her head against the wall. Not only was it the oddest conversation she’d ever have, it frightened her because he was dead on.
“Why add to the torment?” she snapped.
“Being with you was far from torture.” His reply was husky and saturated with innuendo. Lucky ignored the ripples of electricity on her skin.
“We’re not good people, Kenji. I’ve already accepted that, but I think you’ve still got blinders on.”
“No, I have a sense we are more alike than you realize. I know why you eliminated McKowen. He was a vile man.”
“Yeah… We might be the bad guys, but we’re never the villains.” Lucky softened her tone. “We’re not heroes either, just stuck in the middle somewhere.”
“This is what we do, not who we are. It does not change what happened between us. We should not ignore this.”
“I don’t know….” The contact with him did something to her, but finding the words to explain it seemed impossible. Lucky did want to see him again, though, not for all the right reasons.
“Where are you, right now?”
“Miami,” he said immediately. “Let me come to you, wherever you wish.”
“I….” The confusion twisted through her. He was determined without being forceful.
“The choice is yours. Call me after you complete your task,” he said without demand.
