The following is a synopsis from the romantic/erotic/action/thriller, First Degree Lust, from this author:
A night out on the town was all Dennis had in mind. He wasn’t looking for a hookup or even a one-nightstand. But a few spins on the dance floor with Minako quickly lead to much more in her bedroom. And after just one steamy night the married woman decided that she wanted Dennis all to herself, permanently. Not wanting to fall into an escape-proof love trap with a married woman, Dennis succeeds in breaking away from Minako.
But his issue with Minako ends up being far from over when she’s found brutally murdered and the evidence points to him. Becoming the subject of an irresistibly huge and highly-publicized bounty imposed by Minako’s immensely wealthy husband, Tetsuya, Dennis spends an entire weekend trying to stay out of the clutches of ragtag bounty hunters while the city is nearly set ablaze.
He succeeds in clearing his name only to find his life in even graver danger. Someone is now trying to kill him. Who’s trying to kill him and why? And what’s the connection between the people who now want him dead and Minako’s murder?
