Little known fact about me: at age eleven, I decided I wanted to be an astronaut. But since I get sick on roller coasters, I figured space travel wasn’t really a viable career option, so I became a futuristic romance author instead. (Not at age eleven, of course, although I did actually write my first action-adventure story at eleven, which was published in my elementary school newspaper…)
I write futuristic romances with high emotional stakes and plenty of action. I particularly enjoy dropping my two main characters into an impossible situation, and then watching the sparks fly as they try to resist falling in love!
That’s what happens in Programmed To Please, the first book of my series The Tau Cetus Chronicles.
Here’s the blurb:
Very human Tau Cetus police agent Jai Turner goes undercover as a Beautiful Dolls sex robot to bring down the planet’s most notorious arms dealer, Marque Callex. The police have never been able to get close to Callex, and Jai’s assignment is to uncover information on his illicit weapons dealings that will lead to his conviction.
Reclusive arms dealer Marque Callex only accepts an invitation from Beautiful Dolls because with his deadly line of work – and the dangerous secrets he’s keeping – he can’t afford to let a real woman into his life. But neither Jai nor Marque are what they seem, and their week together has consequences neither expect.
Sound like an interesting premise? Writing futuristic romance allows me as an author to build an entire world using just my vivid imagination (sometimes aided by my nightly cocktail, LOL). Book two in the series, Programmed To Protect, features Jai’s partner Leith Wyatt, and book three, Programmed For Power, centers on the planet’s powerful leader, Theus.
