Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Writing romantic suspense is askill I've always admired -- from afar. I used to beta read manuscripts for adear friend who was a very successful romantic suspense writer. All thosetwists and turns and double crosses. I loved reading it but never dreamed I'dwrite it myself. Then Loose Id put out a call for manuscripts for their Men ofMystery series. What fun. Give us your secret agents and super heroes, yourundercover cops and assassins, they said.  I don't usually write those guys. Not yetanyway. But i had just started a story I was inspired to write with a balletdancer hero. Not exactly Navy SEAL material. But I had woven a story around myballet dancer that involved an investigative reporter and a billionaire technologistwho may or may not also be an art thief. Hmm.  

Art theft? What if that theft had biggerimplications? What if there was an outside villain who was a seriously nastyguy and what if he had a henchman that would make Ian Fleming proud? What ifone hero is pitted against the other in a web of lies and mistrust and what ifthey both want the same thing? Hey, whaddya know? I had the makings of aromantic suspense. I pitched. I WON! They accepted my proposal. And then I hadto WRITE it.  Yikes! LOL.
The resulting book, GoldenDancer is a M/M/M ménage. Here are a few things I learned:
·         
Even with no suspense elements, a ménage ischallenging. You need to get far into the heads and hearts of all three men andshow their motivations, loves, concerns. When you layer on top of that the needto create a suspenseful plot, you have a lot on your hands.
·        
The beginning of the book, always a big hurdlein any book for any writer, is a huge challenge in romantic suspense.Especially erotic romantic suspense. You need to introduce the elements of themystery or conflict right away, but the reader also wants to know who theromantic heroes are going to be. It's a lot to get on stage at once. Especiallywhen you have three heroes!
·         
If you want to create a great hero, write areally good villain. As my husband always says, "Nazis make the best villains."I took his advice.
·        
Find the right balance between the sex andromance and the mystery and suspense. The reader will get antsy if the romanceis ignored in favor of the suspense or vice versa.
·        
Keep up the pace. Romantic suspense is notleisurely!
I had enormous fun writing GoldenDancer. I notice that all my books are getting a little moresuspenseful as a result. I hope you enjoy it -- the suspense, and, above all, theromance!  :  ) Tara
