A leading series romance writer, Cait London is a national award-winning bestselling author. She writes articles, is a speaker, and fully enjoys the perks of her career, like meeting readers. Her love of the West is demonstrated in her books. Call's contemporary style involves humor and bringing characters to life by using their pasts and their heritages. "I love digging in genealogy and heritages, and creating them," she says."Really neat characters are born out of immigrant heritages or descendants of Native Americans. The contemporary blend makes fascinating texture."
Of German-Russian descent (with rumors of an Austrian princess in her lineage), Cait grew up in rural Washington State. She is now a resident of Missouri and the mother of three daughters, all taller than she.The best events of her life have always been in threes. Cait London says, "I enjoy creating romantic collisions between dark, brooding heroes and contemporary, strong, active women who know how to manage their lives. Readers are the best perks in this game and I love meeting them. I believe that each of my books is a gift to a reader, a part of me on those pages, and I'm thrilled when readers say, 'That was a good book.'From Library Journal:
Except for a visit from Bonnie and Clyde in the 1930s, Madrid is just about the sleepiest place in Oklahoma until a drive-by shooting, the return of a pair of bad-boy brothers, and a crazed killer bent on revenge combine to give the town a jarring wake-up call. While the superb depiction of the small-town environment, unexpected details (e.g., a pet pot-bellied pig), and well-done dual romances add charm to this sexy, occasionally humorous story, a few too many characters complicate an already nicely intricate plot and diminish the intensity of what could have been an incredibly suspenseful story. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable book, and London's fans should be pleased. London has written a number of well-done, sensual, slightly suspenseful love stories; this is her first effort at real romantic suspense.
