If you enjoy mystery with your multicultural romance, you should check out Ms. Sharon Evans and her The War This Side of Heaven Trilogy. She is a very talented artist who knows how to spin intrigue
I am a fiction writer, and I have a confession to make. I live in the world of my characters on a daily basis. I’m hopelessly in love with at least two of them and have been for decades. This is why my trilogy and ongoing series The War This Side of Heaven is a Mystery/Romance.
First of all there is David Conrad, my first love as one of the original cast of characters in my trilogy. He’s not like some of the heroes you read about in today’s romance novels. Oh, sure, he’s very good looking and has a nice body–but he’s not a young buck in a pickup truck standing there half naked, pawing and/or getting pawed. This man has class. He’s forty five years old, has Hollywood-style good looks, once had a career in show business, and he is independently wealthy. No, you’ll never see him in tennis shoes and jeans. Designer suits, sports clothes, an expensive car, and penthouse pad are the accessories he comes with. He only teaches school because he enjoys it and it keeps him busy. That’s where he meets my teenaged heroine, Janette West, and they go after a serial killer. But David Conrad is not perfect by any means. He is an expert playboy (look out, Janette), and has some deep dark secrets from a tragic past. You’ll find him in the entire series, and you can get a real close look at him in my next release, Heart of a Man in Love–A Forbidden Love Story. It’s a short story that takes a look into the soul of this lonely man.
The other love is one that I accidentally fell for. He’s a character that came out of nowhere into my series. He is, of all things, a Roman Catholic priest named Ted Molly, a.k.a. Teddy. Now, this one–as far as looks go–fits more of your modern day hero type. He’s a new priest in his late twenties and was a boxer in his high school and college years. He’s what they call a jock priest (yes, really). He’s nicely buffed out, has curly blond hair, wears jeans, plaid shirts, a leather jacket, has a 57 Chevy, and he loves motorcycles. Now, does his shirt ever come off? Yes, it does, but I won’t tell you when or under what circumstances. And he is certainly a bad boy, as far as his church is concerned, running around with a group of Protestant hippies and getting involved in a rather unique relationship with a certain teenaged girl (Janette West, my heroine). You’ll meet Teddy in my second book, Man Trouble. Janette get’s him as a present at Christmas time.
Now, what happens when one lovely seventeen year old girl gets the attention of two men older than she? Why, they find out about each other and a battle of jealousy breaks out. And if that’s not enough, David’s past comes back to haunt him big time and he’s accused of murder. Can Janette prove he didn’t do it? Can she find the real killer when the trail is twenty years cold? And how on earth can all of this go on without her parents knowing a thing about it? Find the answer to this and other questions by starting with The After School Murders, now on Amazon. Then get Heart of a Man in Love, which will be released in November of 2013. Man Trouble, book two in the series will be released no later than the spring of 2014. The third book in the trilogy is Killing Old Ghosts, likely to be released late in 2014.
