More About the Author

Emma Calin was born in London in 1962. She currently lives in France and the UK.

She has been writing since childhood and has won numerous local, national and international prizes for poetry and short stories.

Emma currently writes action romance novels and gritty short stories in digital e-book, paperback and audio book formats. She has recently announced a series of illustrated children's modern-day fairy tales - the 'Once Upon a NOW' series, which includes 'ALF THE WORKSHOP DOG', 'ISABELLA'S PINK BICYCLE' and 'KOOL KID KRUNCHA AND THE HIGH TRAPEZE'.

'PASSION PATROL 1' is the first in Emma's 'Passion Patrol' series. A steamy love story set against a backdrop of international gambling corruption and deception. Interpol cop Anna Leyton finds herself torn between love and duty when her professional and private life intersects. Two video teasers for this book are available in the right hand column of this author page, below the blog. This story is now available in Kindle format as 'PASSION PATROL 1' and in paperback under it's former title of 'Knockout'.

'PASSION PATROL 2' is the second stand-alone novel following the 'Passion Patrol' theme of hot cops, hot crime and hot romance. Shannon Aguerri is a witty but feisty inner-city wild-child cop, brought up on the wrong side of the tracks. Her unconventional methods and quick wit bring her success - but not without upsetting the bosses, who move her out to a rural patrol beat. She rapidly discovers there's more going on in this sleepy village than meets the eye. The son of a local aristocrat arouses suspicion of drug crime activity - but his widower father arouses more animal instincts! Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need. Already in the mix is an upper class female rival - who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet. Could she really mix with the British royal family? Can she risk her heart and career on yet another high risk unauthorised investigation? Can she get justice for an innocent boy? Dare a kid from the gutter dream of being a countess?

'COP'S KITCHEN' a companion cook book to 'PASSION PATROL 2' - read the romance, feel the passion TASTE the love. Emma Calin provides photos and recipes for all the meals shared in the story. Food ranging from items for a buffet luncheon in the marquee at the local manor house, for an intimate breakfast for two or for a traditional British fish and chip dinner.

I was given a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. It turned out to not totally be my cup of tea. I liked the protagonist and her daughter, and I was starting to warm up to Alan. And then, they're in love. I know this is a short story, so by definition it needs to move along quickly, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more development of the romance.

The characters are well drawn and the story is well-written. There's a little twist at the end that I particularly liked.

If a short gritty romance is what you're looking for, this is for you.

Escape To Love Described as an urban suspense-novelette, Escape to Love is just that. And it delivers. The `hero' is this book is an escaped prisoner on the run. Can such a person truly be a hero? Does the ultimate act of heroism in a mother's eyes make him a hero? Maybe not immediately, a mother's instincts are always to protect her child, so would she/could she let such a man into her life and into her heart? Women's instincts play a part, too, in this gripping story of love and trust. Maria, in a way, is also on the run, living a hand-to-mouth existence on a low income. Trying to escape poverty and violent past relationship, her priority in life now is her special needs child. I was intrigued by the dilemma this book presented. I wondered whether the author could pull it off. The story is in the telling. I won't spoil it by telling more. Suffice to say I was sold and would definitely recommend it. I liked the juxtaposition between the working class heroine and the well-to-do hero, which presented love with more of a challenge. Why not get a flavour of the book and take a 'look inside' on Amazon? I certainly wasn't disappointed. Full marks, too, to Emma Calin for making this available as an Audio book, giving the reader an alternative reading pleasure - and, of course, catering for those with sight impairment. For interest, my adult son and partner also read and enjoyed this book.

This rating is meant to reflect the reading experience for those who enjoy this romantic suspense genre. Alert! This is not the genre I normally read but as I consider Emma Calin a talented writer with a good sense of pace and a capacity to quickly draw believable characters, I picked this one up expecting a good read.

And I certainly got a good read. The pace is fast, you keep turning the pages to find out how it will all work out. You wonder whether the main character isn't shooting herself in the foot...but no spoilers, I won't tell you what it's about! My only complaint: Emma Calin is an author who can "do" literary fiction, something very few can do. I wish her next book would be more literary! In the meantime, I have to be satisfied with this one, and don't take me wrong, I am! It's just that I'm waiting for the masterpiece that I know Emma can deliver!
