If you enjoy romantic suspense, then MAGIC MOMENT should be at the top of your list!
Chase Donovan has the life all guys dream about. He spends his days surfing the Internet and schmoozing his father's clients. Nights are spent gambling in Atlantic City and bedding the lovelies he finds at the casino tables.
Laura Roberts has spent her life wanting that picture perfect family life and owning her own antique shop. She's working as a bookkeeper for Chase's father, Dick, at the Produce Market in Philly to help achieve her dreams. But her dreams are shattered when the FBI drags her off for questioning while the market employees can only watch and gossip. Laura returns to work the next day, resigns and after leaving her workplace is sedated and abducted. She regains consciousness and recognizes one of the abductors as being her boss's driver, Ron, who is about to rape her and then murder her. Why would her boss want her dead? Is he involved in some type of illegal activity?
In the meantime, Chase is bored with Atlantic City and decides to escape the hustle and bustle for a while on his boat. Arriving at the marina, he notices that the lights are on and there is a limo parked nearby. Grabbing his gun, he silently boards the boat to find Laura tied up and being raped by two thugs. Thwarting the rape and murder, it becomes a race to see if Chase and Laura can put together the pieces of the puzzle. What is going on with Chase's father and why is the FBI so interested in him? Where does Laura fit in the puzzle?
Traveling with Chase and Laura from Philly to Magic Lake Island to Sea Tower, MD really ramps up the intrigue. Throw in the FBI and some thugs and you're hooked! The ending comes with a twist that I didn't see coming. All in all, it's a fun read!
