This is the exciting sequel to Denial of Conscience, a modern Darcy and Elizabeth adventure of international intrigue. Romance, Suspense, Passion, and Danger
Someone wants to kill The Iceman, Fitzwilliam Darcy, and will stop at nothing to lure him into the open. Out for retribution, the son of an assassinated South American drug lord is seeking payback. His diabolical objective puts Operation Macarena into play by dangling bait guaranteed to entice his enemy. Can Darcy's new bride, Liz, accept his decision to leave their tranquil life at Pemberley to resume the deadly profession he swore was behind them forever?
But are Darcy and Liz each fully satisfied with their simple, peaceful existence raising polo ponies and planning exotic vacations? Darcy set Liz's spirit free; how can she resist the urge to ride on the wild side? Perhaps coming out of retirement is just what her husband needs because The Iceman never truly melted.
Without a Conscience takes readers on an adventure from the dangerous Peruvian Amazon Basin to the salacious underbelly of Parisian nightlife, leading toward a perilous rescue in Moscow.
Conscience or no, but propelled by love, Liz and Darcy re-enter the realm of international intrigue for the one and only thing they know is truly worth fighting for: each other.
Authors Note: Jane Austen wrote such wonderful characters, I borrowed their names and some of their characteristics to tell my own tale of contemporary love. Without a Conscience is a sequel, and I recommend reading Denial of Conscience first. Further, it is an original story that follows the lives of the characters of Denial of Conscience and therefore, not meant to be a Pride and Prejudice variation. This novel contains explicit sexual content. So if you are looking for a clean, canon read, this book is not for you.
Thank you so much, Nissa for hosting Without a Conscience! I am super happy to be here to bring your readers the first of four CIA dossiers on this much-anticipated hog blog book tour! You requested one of my favorite characters from The Conscience Series: Rick Fitzwilliam, the Director of Obsidian. Much like our canon Colonel, he is military, well-mannered, charming, and close to his cousin, Darcy. He is intelligent, loyal, and astute. Our contemporary world and his role in it as former military has, however, made him wealthy. Although, we see that not too dissimilar from our canon man’s relationship goals, he has settled for a partner (Caroline) for the wrong reason―not love. Hopefully, a new girl on the scene will help him reassess his relationship needs!
In this excerpt, Rick finds himself in a captive situation in the Amazon and meets a British reporter – also in captivity. Although in the worst of situations, he’s still charming and reassuring. Strong and intelligent.
My visual inspiration for Rick is the sexy and phenomenal actor, Michael Fassbender.
