Trying to rectify the mistake that unleashed his dark past, Sione runs to the rescue of a beautiful woman staying at his resort, saving her from a brutal attack … The sly beauty who doesn’t want a hero is no damsel in distress, considering the suspicious circumstances she seems involved in. He should stay away from the beautiful liar, but something about her makes him want to forget his doubts and do anything—even if it means relying on his violent instincts—for a chance to be with her.
Sighing, Spencer shook her head.
She wanted to explain why she’d decided to “date” Ben. She wanted to tell him she’d stolen from him because she was afraid of his feelings, and even more afraid of her own feelings, afraid she would lose herself if she fell in love with him.
But, would he understand?
Could she even explain it?
“So, Step Two is get close to the resort owner,” she said, rubbing her eyes, trying not to cry. “And then what? Get into his closet and steal from him?”
“I told you the favor won’t be anything criminal,” Ben said, an edge in his tone. “There’s no law against getting close to someone.”
“Just how close do you want me to get?”
“Close, but not too close,” Ben said. “When it’s all over, you have to be able to walk away, and not look back. You have to be able to turn your back on him, even if he’s bleeding on the floor, begging you for help.”
He seemed to be unable to resist trying to get under her skin, and this time, he’d gone too deep.
Deeper than the knife she’d plunged into his gut.
Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
My intended audience is anyone who enjoys the romantic suspense genre. Flawless Danger and The Spencer & Sione Series aims to add diversity to the romantic suspense genre, bringing characters of various nationalities and races that may not typically get the spotlight as the main characters, but are relatable to everyone regardless of their own race or nationality. The books provide a unique dynamic of complex characters that aren’t always good and aren’t always bad, characters that will make the reader oscillate between loving and hating them or their actions. This is all topped off with thrilling action sequences where the characters are placed in unexpected situations that they don’t always get out of and there are twists and turns that no one will anticipate or expect.
How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
The title of my book is designed to make people think a little harder about what Flawless Danger is really referring to – it’s easy to assume it has to do with the dangerous situation Spencer finds herself in trying to deliver counterfeit passports and steal a mysterious item from Sione, but it’s actually deeper than that. Spencer’s point of view on love and how she would lose herself if she fell in love is the ultimate danger she is really afraid of. And love is Flawless, thus the title Flawless Danger.
Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image?
Flawless Danger is set in two locations in Belize – San Ignacio and San Pedro/Ambergris Caye – mirroring a vacation that I took to the country. Having experienced the beauty of Belize first hand and choosing it as the setting for this novel, I knew that I wanted to capture the jungle elements on the cover in a way that was attractive but alluded to danger as well. I also wanted this cover to really showcase Sione since his role in this novel is more prominent than it was in the prequel, Flawless Mistake. Combining these elements with my own sexy dangerous brand, I knew I hot guy in a jungle element would work best for the book cover and the results far exceeded my expectations.
Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book.
In the book, Spencer takes a tour and visits Xunantunich, which is an ancient Mayan archaeological site in Western Belize and one of the ruins that I visited on my trip to Belize. The name Xunantunich means “Stone Woman” and refers to the ghost of a woman who is believed by many Belizeans to inhabit the site.
How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
I have a website (www.therachelwoods.com) and a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/therachelwoodsauthor/), but I love for readers to personally email me (email@example.com). I promise, I answer all emails! I also like to communicate with readers through my monthly newsletter, which I use to promote various giveaways and to provide additional information, sneak peeks and bonus content about my novels.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Currently, now that Flawless Danger has been released, I’ll be promoting the book and continuing to work on two books, both of which will kick off two new series. One of the books, which is still untitled, features two characters from Flawless Danger: Sione’s cousin, David Jones and Spencer’s sister, Shady. As her name implies, Shady is not exactly the good girl she seems to be. The other novel is called, tentatively, Deception Island and I’m really excited about it because it has a more mysterious tone, and I really love mysteries. In Deception Island, a woman finds herself the target of a malicious plot as she engages in various naughty escapades.
Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
Don’t be afraid to self-publish! The landscape of the publishing industry is vastly changed and many self-published authors are reaching heights of success that rival traditionally published authors. The support from the self-publish and indie publishing community is amazing and you’ll find all the help you need along the way.
Is there anything else you’d like to say?
I’m grateful for the opportunity to share more about my novel, Flawless Danger and myself. It’s an exciting page-turner with several thrilling plot twists. I hope readers will check out Flawless Danger and tell me what they think about the way I like to write romantic suspense. I call it “sexy, dangerous fiction”, and it’s all about when sexy girls find themselves in dangerous situations.
