    Robert Jordan and Camille Durran both find themselves victims of failed relationships. Robert is a studio manager for successful engineering firm and Camille is a young attorney in San Francisco. They both have consuming jobs that leave little time for romantic affairs.

    Camille meets Robert in a bar in San Francisco. She is wearing a red evening dress and she attracts Roberts’ attention. They both quickly realize their connection is a fairy tale of love at first sight. They meet the following weekend in Reno, Nevada for lunch, and then find themselves fleeing from the Russian Mafia thugs who are after Camille. They are escorted by the US Marshals to a remote cove in Costa Rica under the witness protection program until the threat is removed.
    They fall deeper in love, and when they return to the US, they marry, have a child, and begin living an idyllic life in the wine country of California. But the threat of the Russian Mafia never leaves their lives.


    Available as an ebook and paperback.​

    I'm a bit biased. The hope is to raise a little awareness to human trafficking, via a love story gone awry. It's starting to gain momentum.

    I'm going to touch on Human Trafficking in my next novel. I wasn't ready to handle the topic just yet. Also that novel takes place in winter and I need to hold off and write that in the series later. :)

    Congrats!

    Human trafficking is an emotional subject to write about. Jill Sterling wrote a PG-13 story, I figure mine is +/- R, and there are a couple of others (Paige Dearth and Valerie Maarten in what I call the 'X' range. All have a place in the expose, but I felt appealing to a greater audience makes more sense.

    I do too, my will just touch on the edge of it, the finding of those before they get into it, that will be rough enough for me. I'll be crying all the way as it is, and I wanted to get some more info. I'm not much of a reader, I would just rather write but I might try to get a book or two on it before next year at this time.

    I know it's strange that I love to write and don't like to read. The problem is I just love to write too much. I used to read back before bifocals.. lol
    Thanks for the input.

    Same reading problem here. My Kindle Fire has really helped because I can change the background to suit the lighting. Love to read... I have quite a few resources for human trafficking. I could dig them out if you like. Wikipedia has a good page as well. I had a tough go reading all the material - but it pushed me to become an advocate - made some friends around the world as well. Good Luck with it.
