So finally, after a year of rewrites, heartbreak, title changes, and a brief contract with an agent, Different Faces of Danger, title change to Face of Danger, title change to Intimate Danger (which is where I hope it'll stay), I've found a home for my new romantic suspense. This book caused a lot of ups and downs, as many in the industry know it's a very fine line between thriller and romantic suspense, and based on that fine line, opinions can go either way. Which makes it frustrating as an author, but most times, no matter what, an author has to stick toward what they believe is the right approach for a book and have faith that a publisher will love it as much as they do, and offer a contract.
Which is what happened! *keys music*
I know I've posted it before--my thoughts on what Trent from Intimate Danger looks like--but in celebration, and simply because this man is fine, I wanted to do it again.
Trent Rossi is my hero in Intimate Danger. He's a Special Agent with the FBI assigned out of New York City. He's dark and mysterious, almost at times, too much, which leads Charlie (heroine) to suspect him of vicious crimes occurring in her small town of Nyack, NY.
Here's a blurb:
When FBI agent Trent Rossi arrives to investigate a chain of crimes—devastating murders and violent rapes—an inexperienced small town Detective, Charlie, who’s assigned to assist, finds her desire surging for the agent—only to realize he is the primary suspect.
A sleeping threat has awakened in the small town of Nyack. Crimes in the cozy village, garner the attention of the FBI, who assign two agents to assist Charlie in tracking down the sick and deranged perpetrator. Agents Trent Rossi and Dillon Echols work closely with Charlie, but as the crimes progress, dark secrets begin to cloud the air, blurring the line between who is on the side of the law and who’s against it. Being Charlie’s first major case, she’s unprepared not only for the menacing killer on the loose, but also with the unexpected feelings Trent draws out of her.
While Trent holds secrets, disappears at random, and seems to understand their perpetrator all-too-well, Charlie’s suspicions grow along with the pull she feels toward him. Her attraction could become fatal, yet she does not realize it until it is too late.
So in celebration of Man Candy Monday, and this contract, I've decided to show you a bit of my inspiration on Trent.
The lovely, and definitely sexy David Gandy.
