A life long lover of books, Melinda Leigh writes some real fascinating crime thrillers taking her readers on roller coaster rides of intense passion and hatred. She’s become one of my top favorite writers, to always read.
From her advent of her “She Can Series” to her debut novel, “She Can Run”, being nominated as the Best First Novel by the International Thriller Writers, to her Midnight Series, she’s had a very successful run. I for one am always amazed with her variety of dark and deranged characters of evil to her equally strong women who can more than counter their evil nemesis. And sometimes adding a sprinkle of paranormal sure makes it dicey!
Her latest release “Midnight Betrayal”, slated for September 2 release, is the story of Dr. Louisa Hancock, trying to escape her troubled past and her journey with the one man she almost gave her heart to, Conor Sullivan.
Curator Dr. Louisa Hancock left behind Maine and her troubled past for Philadelphia and a job at a prominent museum. Just when it seems that Louisa’s new life is safe from her dark secrets, the body of a museum intern is found—the victim of a brutal and baffling murder.
Louisa realizes this is no random crime. And when another intern goes missing, the abduction is linked to the only man who has ever tempted Louisa’s heart—Conor Sullivan, the sexy owner of a Philly sports bar. Louisa’s past has taught her to be wary, but her heart refuses to believe Conor is guilty.
Now Conor and Louisa must dodge a police investigation—and their growing desire—as they race to find the real killer before another girl turns up dead. But trusting Conor could be deadly, especially as the evidence against him mounts…and as a merciless killer targets Louisa as the next victim.
Keep an eye out for a new series, “A Rogue Series”, a four-part series, which she is co-writing with another of my favorite authors, Kendra Elliot, slated for Fall 2014 releases.
