There's intelligence in the writing so that even the erotic scenes—which are sizzling—are well done and believable. So much more than a simple romance, the main character, Samantha, is like a hot, female version of James Bond.
USA (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
For a limited time only, Vivrant Press announced today that the first book by Alexi LAWLESS, entitled Complicated Creatures: Part One, is now available on Amazon for 99 cents. Complicated Creatures: Part Two will be published in August.
Lawless, whose profile describes her as a “corporate runaway, novelist, wanderer, and bourbon drinker,” makes her debut with a book described by reviewers as “un-put-downable,” “alluring, suspenseful and compelling,” and “addictive.”
This fast-paced, smartly-written book is driven by characters that are as fascinating as they are complex. When Samantha Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, she immediately attracts the attention of Jack Roman, a major player in the empire that is his Chicago. Samantha, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations, is unlike anyone Jack’s ever known. When her enigmatic past returns to haunt her with a vengeance, Jack’s father, a powerful politician on the Senate Intelligence Committee, warns him: “It is normal to love a dangerous woman. They know how to wield their power, and they are not afraid of yours. But her background is labyrinthine. Samantha is dark. She is dark for a reason…”
While Complicated Creatures is set primarily in Chicago, a town Lawless knows—and writes—with vivid clarity, readers will also discover themselves transported to the desert mountains of Somalia, the dazzling and riotous city of Rio de Janeiro and the peaceful ranchlands of Texas in this meaty, mesmerizing story of obsession, survival, and reinvention.
Reviews consistently describe the book as so much more than romantic suspense, and the book has developed a strong male readership with powerful action scenes, a fast-paced dialogue and a brilliant cast of characters. One reviewer explains, “There's intelligence in the writing so that even the erotic scenes—which are sizzling—are well done and believable. But this is so much more than a simple romance! The main character, Samantha, is like a hot, female version of James Bond…. Every character in the book is well-developed and real. Alexi Lawless is a talented writer who knows that women can be strong and sexy, men can be smoldering and vulnerable, and that there's more to a story than just jumping from erotic scene to erotic scene. There's an actual story taking place.”
“These are not your mother’s romance novels,” explains author Alexi Lawless, who says her reading audience should be 18 and older. “What started as a simple idea for a romance novel developed into a story of intrigue and action—with some intensely hot scenes along the way!”
Complicated Creatures is available on Amazon, and for a limited time only, the book is available for 99 cents. Sign up to be notified of the release of Complicated Creatures Part Two and receive a free copy of the Complicated Creatures 1.5 Novella by registering at [AlexiLawless.com.
