True Crime novelist Ian Sharpe has spent his career writing about serial killers for very personal reasons. For his latest exposé, he is taking on the sadistic madman known as the Red Ribbon Strangler, and when his research leads him to Hollywood’s most private and provocative actress, he will break every rule to uncover her truth.

The daughter of one of Hollywood’s golden couples, chased by paparazzi and treated as a commodity her entire life, Veronica Romero wields her sex appeal like a weapon. She expects Ian to be as easy to control as every other man she’s ever known. But from the beginning, he refuses to fall into line. Mysterious and cool, challenging and just a little bit dangerous, Ian somehow makes her feel safe—even as he digs into the deepest secrets of her life and pushes her to the breaking point.

As raw ecstasy gives way to agonized truths, their dark obsession exposes secrets that have been buried for far too long. Ian wants to tear down her walls and heal the sensual woman underneath. But if Veronica’s learned anything, it’s that the line between pleasure and pain is a narrow one—and when caught between them the only thing that matters is how you play the game.

Lovegame is intended for mature audiences. This ebook includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

review

Power struggle, this book is the epitome. Lovegame is a twisted psychological thriller that had me wondering just what was coming next. It’s a tangled and intriguing story about the complexities of the human psyche. Ian Sharpe, an ex-FBI profiler turned novelist, who’s subjects of choice are serial killers. Veronica Romero is Hollywood Royalty, an actress with a dark past that haunts her. This story unfolds and they are quickly tempting the line between black and white, circumventing the line between pleasure and pain. Their relationship is raw and dark, quickly becoming an obsession, littered with secrets and danger.

Tracy has written a wonderful narrative that delves into the uncomfortable. It’s well written, the characters well developed and well thought out. It’s a tsunami of emotions and that I found myself lost in and loved. The Epilogue brought all of their scattered pieces together, reminding us that we don’t have to be the sum of our past mistakes.

“You sure you want me to be your happy ending?”

“You’re already my happy ending Veronica. I want you to be my everything.”

About Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:

Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
