Thank you so much for taking the time to join me on another round of What to Read Wednesday! I’m excited to have Chrys Fey visiting today 🙂 Chrys is sharing her latest book SEISMIC CRIMES with us and I know that I definitely want to read this. Not only do I love the cover, but I love the premise of this romance. After you read the blurb and excerpt I think you will run on over to your favorite book buying site and grab a copy too!
So, let’s get started …
Intense Situations Create Love – SEISMIC CRIMES by Chrys Fey
Beth and Donovan’s love story is not typical. In Hurricane Crimes, they meet after Donovan crashes his car into a tree…in hurricane-force winds. Beth ventures out into the storm to rescue him from the totaled car. When she sees him for the first time, it’s through a rainy car window.
After she brings him into her house, she catches a news bulletin about a man suspected of murder. The face of the man staring back at her from the TV belongs to Donovan. During the course of the story, Donovan teeters back and forth between guilty and innocent. Beth throws a flashlight at him, tries to back his head in with a candlestick holder, and crush his manly area with her knee.
But being trapped with a stranger during a category 5 hurricane, and relying on that person to stay alive, builds a connection. This connection starts when they both show compassion toward each other, share their stories, laugh, and bond over a game of poker. Then they face many dangers together, including the prospect of death. Those intense moments create love. Maybe not the sort of love some have if they’ve known someone for years and know all about them, but a strong chemical reaction, which is what love boils down to. That chemical reaction cannot be controlled or stopped or manipulated. When it happens, it happens. As it did with Beth and Donovan.
He told me first, and people fall in love at first sight all the time, so what’s the big deal?
The big deal is you don’t even know him.
I knew him well enough to have sex with him.
Beth’s mind was in a war with itself.
She thought about Donovan and his gentle touch when he cleaned her wounds. His sexy smile, the way he made love to her as if he had known her for years, and his violet eyes. Donovan was an amazing man; there was no doubt about that. And she couldn’t ignore her feelings either. When she realized she would do anything for him, even kill to protect him, she knew she was in love. Yes, in love with a man she barely knew, but in love nonetheless.
The clock hanging on the wall was wrong but the minute hand continued to move. Each tick frayed Beth’s nerves. Donovan had been in the interrogation room for thirty minutes. What is happening? What are they putting him through?
Her hair hung in damp ropes to her shoulders and her clothes were wet, offering a bit of coolness to her heated skin. She stretched out on the chairs, letting exhaustion take over her body, and drifted off to sleep.
An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.
Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.
When a tip reveals the killer’s location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?
