WEST OF SIN
A 104,000-word contemporary adult thriller.
Jennifer Williams hopes to survive her firm’s annual Las Vegas real estate conference by focusing on two bright spots—Ashley, her young protégé and confidant, and Bryan, her boss and quasi-boyfriend. Those bright spots abruptly fade when Jennifer catches Ashley in bed with Bryan.
Distraught, Jennifer flees into the night and wanders into a small-town truck stop where she disrupts a robbery in progress. Her presence threatens to escalate the situation, until another bystander—a man with more to conceal than just his past—steps forward to protect her. Jennifer soon learns that the attempted robbery wasn’t what it appeared and that this small town west of Sin City is home to a big secret. When the group behind the attempted robbery comes looking for her but kidnaps Ashley by mistake, Jennifer must place her trust in the man who protected her and put her own life on the line if she is to have any chance of saving the young woman whose betrayal set all of this in motion.
