Blurb:

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of “instant divorce,” Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won’t even tell her his name. She’s determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can’t turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law.

As her husband’s deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer.

Welcome to Caribbean Accent Book Reviews, Sandra :)



Using 10 words, how would you describe Mean Streak?

Suspenseful. Surprising. Mysterious. Fast-paced. Twisty. Taut. Shocking. Tantalizing. Compelling. Sexy.

.

.

Did you have to do any interesting research while writing it?

My heroine, Emory, is a marathon runner, and my son-in-law had just run one. He helped me on the training aspects. Emory is a pediatrician, but there are other “medical” elements in the story relating to grownups, not children. I had to research – to name a few — concussion, disambiguation, and mandibular fracture.

.

.

What can you tell us about the heroine’s mysterious kidnapper?

Well, let’s see. . .he’s physically formidable, secretive, tells her nothing about himself, not even his name. At first, he scares the hell out of her. But then she gets to know him better and then he REALLY scares the hell out of her. But the sexual electricity between them is undeniable and irresistible. The reasons for his actions are revealed as the story unfolds. Little is what it seems.

.

.

Tell us about your favourite moment in Mean Streak. 

One of my favorites is when Emory tries to seduce him in the hope of escaping. But he’s on to her and says,

“. . .here’s a warning, Doc. You give me another opportunity to put my hands on you, and I’m going to put them all over you. Got it? I’m not gonna imagine you naked, I’m gonna see you naked. Offer up yourself again, and I’ll ignore every reason why I shouldn’t ___ you.”

.

.

Is this book connected to any others or will there be a sequel?

No and no. I’ll miss Emory and the nameless hero, but I’ll soon begin writing another story with a new set of characters.\
