Everyone knows the stories about naïve girls being taken by beautiful monsters.
Often the monster is a tortured soul with a fucked up past, but even then, that monster is redeemable.
This is not one of those stories.
My monster revels in the carnage he creates.
Our story is not one where good prevails and the villain becomes a hero.
My reality is dark.
His demons are darker.
And though I love my monster, this is no fairytale.
There is no happily ever after.
Love is a tragedy designed for two.
What would you endure to see it through?
I was nothing.
He was both madness and paradise.
I was innocent.
He was twisted, harboring sadistic secrets.
I was a malignant obsession.
Now I am his most prized possession.

Title: Blonde Moxie
Author: C.R. Lemons
Genre: Noir Crime Thriller
Release Date: May 7, 2019
There is a fine line between an investigation turning obsessive, reality blurring into fantasy, and determination masked as courage…
Seasoned homicide detective Breck Nolan is within a week of retiring when he is called out to the horrific crime scene of missing person Camille Earhart. He quickly discovers she is a stunning blonde beauty with soul-capturing blue eyes and a singer at a local jazz lounge. The deeper he dives into his missing blonde’s life the more Detective Nolan becomes enamored with her, but he learns little about who she actually is. She is a mystery in which he is determined to solve in hopes to find her alive.
Through his investigation, he finds his missing blonde has left a trail of corrupt men in her wake. Each with a slightly different description of who she is and all with a motive in benefiting from her disappearance. The one that stands out the most is her married boss Sal Aiolfi, Jr., the son of mob boss, Sal, Sr., who Detective Nolan has a not-so-favorable history with.
When two bodies turn up along with the discovery of a handful of missing person cases all linked to the jazz club, Detective Nolan makes it a personal mission to get to the bottom, even if it means breaking in doors and kicking in knee caps to accomplish it. This causes a push back from his own department, leaving him to choose between his badge or his honor. Detective Nolan stubbornly decides there is a third option to keep both with the help of a few unlikely and interesting allies along the way.
In the end, will he ever find his missing blonde, or will she forever be an alluring enigma?

Hi Guys. I’m a UK based author who loves to read and write all things romance.
As Skye Jones I write steamy paranormal romance.
As S.R. Jones I write darker, contemporary romance and romantic suspense.
One thing my books have in common are tortured alpha heroes that are oh-so-redeemable!
I live in Yorkshire, and get lots of inspiration from the windswept moors, the old stone buildings and the Celtic myths of this fair isle.
My dogs are my favorite people, although I tell my husband I’m quite fond of him too 😉
I love chocolate and Starbuck’s Mochas and keep meaning to give them up for a life of yoga and fresh juices, but it never happens!

I tried to run. I tried to escape. I failed.
When I was dragged from Earth to Under, my life as I knew it ended. Everyone else who was brought here with me has found their place in this world of myths and monsters. They are all now a part of the fabric of a strange universe. Everyone, except me.
The ceremony that turned everyone else into supernatural creatures left me as a human. More importantly, it left me mortal. This has never happened before. Because of that, they think I’m a threat. Edu, the King of Flames, threatened to kill me. So, I did the only logical thing—I tried to run.
But a second king has woken from his slumber. Aon, the King of Shadows, the demon amongst monsters, has risen. And he’s come for me. They call him a warlock and a madman. And now I’m a “guest” in his home, and I am afraid to learn if they’re right. I don’t know what his plans for me are…but I think I’m about to find out.
Edu still wants me dead. Aon is a dangerous mystery. I must try and survive, but this world called Under seems to have other plans.
