[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Patricia! Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Patricia Rosemoor] Creative but able to multi-task.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your book?
[Patricia Rosemoor] Camille’s past drives her as a homicide detective until she gets put on administrative leave. She can’t get let the case go — a 14 year old girl’s life may be at stake — and so agrees to work with the man with whom she’d had a one night stand and who then went to jail for punching out a prosecutor. Now a P.I., Drago has never forgotten Camille, but he knows she sees things in black and white, while he has always operated in shades of gray…
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?
[Patricia Rosemoor] I started with a premise. An internet predator who kills young women. A female detective with a past who can’t let the case go when it’s taken away from her. Who better as a love interest than someone who grew up fighting to stay out of gangs, with no help from the cops.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
[Patricia Rosemoor] The sometimes adversary relationship between Camille and Drago.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What gave you the most trouble with this story?
[Patricia Rosemoor] Keeping a high level of sensuality while having my hero and heroine focused on finding the missing girl.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had a theme song, what would it be?
[Patricia Rosemoor] Satisfaction, Rolling Stones.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing you won’t leave home without.
[Patricia Rosemoor] My Smartphone — I rarely make phone calls, but I use it as a computer away from home.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name three things on your desk right now.
[Patricia Rosemoor] I have a desk, but a friend calls my office a “storage room” because I write on a laptop in my living room — so there’s nothing personal ON the desk. But the office is filled with things I love — stained glass hanging in the window, artwork and photos of friends on the walls, and especially the shelves and shelves of Patricia Rosemoor books 🙂
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be?
[Patricia Rosemoor] Kathryn Bigelow. I would love to direct movies.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are some books that you enjoyed recently?
[Patricia Rosemoor] Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, Brilliance by Marcus Sakey (a former grad student who started his writing career in my Suspense-Thriller class), Archetype by M.D. Waters, the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. One of my all time favorite books is Dark Horse by Tami Hoag.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
[Patricia Rosemoor] I love gardening. Unfortunately, it will be another 4 months before the weather will allow me to get back to working on it.

Fans of Linda Howard will love Dangerous, the story of a driven female cop who teams up with an irresistible ex-con to bring a killer to justice—and discovers that breaking the rules is hotter on the wrong side of the law.
Chicago homicide detective Camille Martell will stop at nothing to track down “Angel,” a sexual predator who has already butchered two young victims—even after her off-the-books investigation leads to her suspension. But when her relentless attempts to contact Angel online puts her teenage neighbor in mortal danger, Camille’s worst fears are realized. Panicked and overwhelmed with guilt, Camille needs help—even if it comes from the one man she swore she’d do anything to forget.
After serving time for a trumped-up charge, private investigator Drago Nance doesn’t trust cops. Nothing will change that, not even the steamy weekend with Camille that burned itself into his memory. But with an innocent girl’s life at stake, Drago can’t ignore the need in Camille’s eyes, or the heated promise in her touch. He agrees to help—if she’s willing to play by his rules. He just never suspected that seducing his partner could be just as thrilling as chasing a madman.
