A woman’s heart, young or old, longs for love. Kylie thought she’d finally met the man she could share her life with. Boy was she wrong! Better to have found out sooner than later, she realized, but when she told her suitor it wasn’t working for her, he didn’t take it well. Enter sexy, grounded Will Delaney, whose broad shoulders and solid thinking proved to be a powerful magnet that tugged at Kylie’s heart. Suddenly she found herself desperately trying to shake off Drew as he stalked her every move, while Will quietly pulled her onto his radar and into his world. Angry and dangerous, Drew became more determined than ever to make Kylie’s life a misery, and if he had to use Will Delaney’s young son to accomplish just that, then he would. If he couldn’t have her then no one should! It became clear to Kylie that she alone would have to save Will’s son, even if it meant losing her freedom and maybe even her own life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Growing up in the Ted Bundy era, I became fascinated by serial killers and their motives. What made their minds tick, why they did what they did and how. While some are driven by sexual appetites, others are after the thrill of the hunt. Another great interest of mine has always been romance with a twist. And so Lethal Affair was born along with its two companion books, all three romantic suspense novels whose heroines lives are compromised by a would-be killer. Stir into the mix a healthy, robust male who is not a killer but a lover and off we go!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Pure imagination. Fantasy lovers in my head, evil stalking killers in the headlines and in movies, pretty young women whose hearts are open to love. My daughter and her friends are examples of the latter. There are real people all around us to draw upon.
“What was that?” Open wide, the whites of Max's eyes glistened. He reached for his Dad's hand.
“Who's there?” Will called out, pulling Max in close. He motioned for Kylie to follow suit and took her hand in his free one.
Nothing. But the air crackled with tension; someone was watching them.
“Let's go,” said Will. They took off at a fast pace holding hands, all of them glancing back.
As they put some distance between the zoo and the parking area, Kylie took one last look back. A man stood in a pool of lamp light, watching them. She stopped as did Will and Max and they all turned to see.
Kylie's stomach hitched. It was Drew. She'd recognize that cocky stance anywhere.
“Is that who I think it is?” asked Will in a whisper.
Max heard him. “Who do you think it is?” he also whispered.
Kylie blew out the breath she'd been holding. “It's nobody,” she said for Max's sake. “Just some guy looking for a cheap thrill.”
Max was puzzled. “What does that mean?”
Will said, “It means he likes to scare people. That's why I don't want you walking around on your own, not just here but anywhere, got that?” He leaned over and whispered in Kylie's ear. “And that goes double for you.”
