Amazing City Nights: One Night in Boise (@authortroy)
I’m a suspense-thriller writer. It’s where I live, my writer happy place. I’ve written in other genres, and will continue to. But erotic romance? Please. Not even on my radar…
Wait a second. Is that a challenge? Not a triple dog dare, but when it comes to writing, you almost never have to pull that card on me. And there’s never anything wrong with a sub-genre.
You mean I could write an erotic suspense thriller, where romance and sex is vital to the story, set in a city of my choosing? Well when you put it that way, I’m in.
And One Night in Boise was born. The writing was surprisingly easy. After all, if you are doing it right, sex is thrilling. There should be some suspense involved. Add a detective, a crime, a rebellious teenage son with something to prove and you have a Troy Lambert story wrapped in a slightly different package. The idea came to me almost fully formed by the first line:
“It’s a dangerous game we play.”
I read some erotica to get a flavor for the genre. Tough research, I know, but it had to be done. I read work by Lucy Felthouse, C. Margery Kempe, and others. Good writing is good writing, no matter what the genre or subject. I admit, I admire these ladies, and I wanted to write something even worthy of being in the same category as their work.
Because this isn’t just about One Night in Boise. It’s about One Night in Paris, One Night in Rome, One Night in New Orleans, One Night in San Francisco, and even more to follow. It’s about the City Nights Series from Tirgearr Publishing.
Boise is just the beginning, the first of an exciting, exotic trip around the world. So go ahead. Experience One Night in Boise, an erotic thriller. But don’t stop there. Journey with us around the world.
Detective Derek Marshek and his wife Cheri like to play games. It’s not that they don’t have a great sex life, but Cheri came up with the idea to keep things even spicier. Suddenly, events at the Seven Bells Motel reveal she may have had other motives.
Their son Alex, now in college and seeking to escape the shadow of his father has a new girlfriend. In their efforts to find privacy, he is drawn back into his parents’ lives, and sees a new side of Susie. Could she be the one?
On this night in Boise, will lives be ruined, hearts be broken? One thing is certain. It’s a dangerous game they all play.
