Book DescriptionDoes an ex-cop ever lose his "nose" for investigating? Freshmen Senator, Bryon Gallagher, certainly hasn't, when the love of his life, Jessica, is kidnapped by a mad man. No stone is left unturned, as he plays the role of a senator by day and rogue detective by night, calling in favors and working his past snitches to the bone to find her. The only problem is, who does he focus his efforts on ... her deranged, the former father-in-law who lusts after her, a crazed felon hell-bent on revenging the execution of his brother put to death under the Senator's newly passed Death Penalty Bill, or an unknown psycho, looking for his "moment of fame?"
Pawn for Malice is a thrilling and passionate love story that is a blend of crime action, suspense, and self-discovery or one could even say, a cross between Safe Haven and Criminal Minds.
About Cynthia Roberts
Her love of reading romance fiction goes back to the early years when she was raising a young family. It wasn't until much later in life that she actually picked up a pen to write her first historical romance, Wind Warrior. "I really don't fit into one specific niche. Once a story starts to flow, it's only then I know what genre/sub-genre it will fit under."
Cynthia is enjoying her writing journey with much success but often thinks about what it took to get there. "I have only one regret, and that is not getting to this point in my career much sooner, rather than later. Life has a way of setting up road blocks, which for me, was supposed to work out that way. Because of those detours, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer, allowing me to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel."
Cynthia hopes readers will walk away with not just an entertaining and compelling read, but the importance of knowing, "Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities."
