Lorelei is an author of romantic suspense she loves reading almost as much as writing. She lives on a peninsula in the mid west coast of Florida with her husband, two cats, and AJ, her long haired Chihuahua. Now I have always wanted a Chihuahua, but for some reason have always ended up with huge dogs. I do envy her lol She wrote her first story in the fourth grade in the form of a play which actually was produced by her teacher for parents and students. She continued writing and majored in English in College.
Tory Richards returns to North Carolina to help her mother set up a B & B never expecting to stumble across several murder victims, fall in love, or get abducted by human traffickers.
Fortunately, when she’s run off the road on the way into town, Dave Miller, working undercover on the task force for human trafficking, comes to her aid. She blows off the near fatal accident as just that--an accident, but rethinks her position once events escalate.
Someone is trying to kill Tory. Failing that, she’s being set up as a suspect in four murders. As Dave falls more deeply for Tory, how will he tell her who he is and what he does? Will she ever trust him?
Trust becomes a moot point when Tory is abducted and everything points to the group of human traffickers Dave’s had under surveillance. He calls in the entire task force, but will they reach Tory before she’s used as a sex slave?
DEADLY REVENGE is the second book in a series with the theme of human trafficking. I’ve been working on the third book in the human trafficking series titled DEADLY DELIVERANCE, which hopefully will be finished by the end of the year. (out early next year) As writers we all have favourite characters, mine is Tory. I love that she photographs everything, leaving discernable clues about her life and what happens to her. She becomes a stronger woman by the end of the book and has to make a decision about leaving the NC mountains and returning to the beach, where she has a home and job waiting for her, without Dave. She can’t stay and he won’t leave.
It sounds like Tory is a strong alpha lady. I think this will be added to my TBR pile. Have you any advice for authors?
Let me see. The best marketing advice I can offer, would be to blog and participate on the loops for readers, Goodreads is my favourite and a great source of readers and authors.
Before you go, can you tel us a bit about you and your hubby. How did you meet?
My husband and I were high school sweethearts. On our first date I asked him to let me drive his car because I was taking my driver’s test the next day and wanted to be prepared. Anyway, I took a turn too sharp and hit the side of the road which had a five foot embankment which side swiped the entire passenger side. We were never able to get that door open. He was going into the Army a few months later and sold the sold the car for $300. We’ve been married 41 years in May.
