Trista Russell, author of Going Broke and Dead Broke, turns up the heat in this erotic urban tale featuring a powerful attraction between a fugitive and the woman he is holding captive.
As Audra Lopez watches news reports about the infamous “Turnpike Cop Killer” at her favorite after-work spot, the last thing she expects is to find the wanted man waiting at her house like an old, familiar lover. Shaken with fright when he nudges a gun to her body and demands protection, Audra has no clue how deeply the murderer’s rough, tender touches will penetrate the hardened layers of her heart.
Dean Casey can’t believe he’s on the run after shooting two cops. But he never dreamed that his young daughter would be molested, either, a crushing reality that pushed the hardworking father to the brink of insanity. With the entire city of Miami on the hunt for him, Dean must figure out a way to save his daughter before vanishing from her life forever. To complicate matters, his hostage is a sexy, thick beauty whose attraction to him is impossible to ignore.
Overcome with the thrill of their forbidden lust and imprisoned in the walls of her home, Audra and Dean lose themselves in an addictive, erotic haze - until sudden tragedies and shocking twists force them to escape Miami. As the fugitives set sail on the tranquil Caribbean Sea, their treacherous journey will, once and for all, test the limitless bounds of their passion.
Russell (Dead Broke) walks a fine line between African American romantic suspense and pornography in this melodramatic tale of a misunderstood killer and the clueless woman who becomes his lover. "I don't think I could ever be raped," announces a horny female companion of the heroine, Audra Chandler, after a few drinks in a Miami, Fla., bar one night. "I enjoy dick entirely too much." Later, as Audra is about to enter her apartment, Dean Tyson, dubbed "the Turnpike Cop Killer" on the TV news, threatens her with a gun. Inside, Dean tells Audra he didn't mean to kill the two cops he shot earlier that day. Besides, he was angry at the time because he was trying to reach his seven-year-old daughter, Destiny LeAnn, who'd been molested by the girl's mother's pederast boyfriend. Torrid sex ensues. Is it a case of the Stockholm syndrome or just pure craziness that causes Audra to fall for Dean? Warning: this slick erotic thriller may offend women who have been victims of sexual assault.
