Author Insights: Interview with Alexi Lawless, Romantic Suspense Author of Complicated Creatures, Part One

Today you meet novelist Alexi Lawless, who abandoned corporate comforts to take on writing. Her first book, Complicated Creatures, is available now.

I love to get inside the author's mind. Any author is on an adventure, and now you will ride along, so to speak, with Alexi Lawless on HERS.

You'll see the whole interview in a moment, first, check out the book and my review.

Cover of Complicated Creatures, by Alexi LawlessComplicated Creatures

“It’s normal to love a dangerous woman. They know how to wield their power, and they are not  afraid of yours. They make you work for everything you get and it's all the sweeter once you get it…”

What happens when curiosity becomes obsession?

From author Alexi LAWLESS, the first part in a provocative series...

Luck is Jack Roman's middle name— and Chicago is his Empire. He lives to work, loves to play, and makes no commitments. But when the mysterious S. Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he's immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.

Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past. An entire world is revealed to Jack, where living for pleasure becomes fighting for survival. And the only woman he wants may be the one he cannot have...

COMPLICATED CREATURES is a mesmerizing, labyrinthine romantic suspense that will leave you wondering: Do you really want to know everything about the one you love?

Here is my review of Complicated Creatures.

A romantic suspense novel with real SUBSTANCE!,June 24, 2014 

I love suspense. I sometimes enjoy romance and sometimes not so much. Depends on whether there's any real emotional depth or not. In this case, there is.

Complicated Creatures excited me, engaged my imagination, and gave me characters with real emotions. Sure, there's some steam, but the characters truly come across as people. They jump off the page. It's unusual to find a first time novelist who writes this well.

I love this book and am excited to read the rest of the series.

Follow your BLISS,

Ronda Del Boccio

I hope you enjoy this interview. Be sure to pick up the book if it interests you, and share this with your friends.
