**BT & Giveaway** Tragic Desires ~ A.M. Hargrove

My name is Gemini Sheridan. At least that’s what I thought it was for 23 years. Then one day a slight adjustment on the wheel of my mountain bike set into motion a series of catastrophic events that changed my life forever. Now I’m running from the headaches that threaten to destroy me… from the assassins that threaten to kill me… from the truth that exposes who I really am… and from the man that wants to save me. Because he now owns my heart and I fear him above all others.

My name is Drexel Wolfe and I’m a private investigator. Nothing ever stands in the way of what I want because when I see something I just take it. All of that changed the night my life collided with Gemini Sheridan’s and now everything is one hot damn mess. And the worst part of it all is that I’m trying to save her ass and I don’t know why the hell I’m even bothering. Well, that’s not exactly true. Fact is, I can’t stop thinking about her. She’s crawled into every thought I own, asleep or awake. I have serious plans for her that include making her mine. What she doesn’t know is that when I play, I play for keeps. Nothing and no one will get in my way or stop me… not even Gemini Sheridan herself.

What a crazy ride this book was. Tragic Desires is a fast paced mystery novel that takes us all over the US, in attempts to figure out the clues that will save Gemini's life. We instantly meet Gemini Sheridan, an exotic mountain bike enthusiast, involved in a horrific accident, she experiences debilitating migraines that have robbed her of her life. Doped out of her mind in hopes of taking away the pain, Gemini narrowly becomes the latest victim in a string of disappearances.

Insert Drexel Wolfe. Holy Alpha Male. Drexel, Private Investigator extraordinaire, has had his eye on Gem since he first saw her. Intent on keeping her safe, Drex is pulled into a cat and mouse game that goes deeper than anything he's ever seen. With very little people in the world he can trust, Drex and Gem must uncover the clues and find out who's after her and why.

A.M. Hargrove knows how to write a romantic mystery! The twists and turns in this book were so wow, that in a lot of places, I had to go back and re-read them to make sure I was getting it all. Definitely will be keeping tabs on Hargrove, as if her writing continues as is, she's going to have a bright shiny future ahead of her.

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include the following: Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge and Kissing Fire (The Edge Series); The Guardians of Vesturon series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent and Beginnings); Dark Waltz and Tragically Flawed.

Other than being in love with writing about being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
