What happens when curiosity becomes obsession? And when that obsession leads to an unstoppable journey you could never have imagined?

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?

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***

 This is Part One of a Love Story with an Action/Adventure Background. Alternatively it is a thrilling page-turner of a story in which two of the central characters happen to fall in love.
No red-blooded male reader would not wish to change places with Jack, and female readers will likewise change places with Sam (Samantha) though they may not always approve of the way she treats Jack.
Sam is an ex-special forces girl, expert marksman with a rifle, brilliant martial arts expert in all disciplines, particularly Judo her first choice. She is co-head of a firm specialising in bodyguard work, including finding kidnap victims and recovering them. She is from an oil-rich Texas family, but with a firm of over one hundred employees, she is now rich in her own right. Jack is a qualified architect and financially very successful property developer. Beautiful women meet him and then immediately lust after him and now, for the first time he meets a woman who does not, ——Sam.
I recommend this to you both for the love story where the two main characters are believable in everything from action to speech, and for the brilliantly written action sequences when Sam and her team are at work. The main story is complete, except for the cliff hanger at the end when you will be left wondering just how the problems keeping Sam and Jack from –Happy Ever After will be resolved (or indeed if they even have a future together). Find out in Part Two of Complicated Creatures.
