The Most Beautiful Things can also be the Most Lethal

She sleeps with a gun under her pillow, and a man on each side

by pearls
Laurie Roma's IAD series books are full of action and romance, mystery and personal connections.  Her fierce defenders of Justice love with an equal passion. Her heroines are strong, self assured, successful women who carry scars from their life.  And the Alpha men are secure enough to fight at her side.   Exactly the balance I love.   So at the author chat last week, it came as no surprise that we both enjoy In Death series books by JD Robb.  Even in Laurie's SciFi menage series, she features strong women who don't back down in the face of danger or love. 

That's not all I love about her writing, though.  Laurie Roma's writing invites all the senses to participate in the experience.  Colour, Sound, Sight, Smell, and especially Touch are woven into the scenes creating a sensual experience.  In her newest book, Cross Point, Trinity describes it as being in a "sea of sensation".  By starting the story in her cold, drab, isolated apartment of Chicago, Laurie is able to create a contrasting world of beauty in Sunset Point, where the flora and fauna, and the sand and ocean, press upon her as her lovers Jackson and Maxwell.  

Full of action and romance, mystery and personal connections, Cross Point brings us a strong female character who teaches her Alpha men to stand beside her. (The scene where Trinity meets Maxwell is epic; and her meeting with Jackson is equally memorable.) This is a wonderful addition to the Sunset Point series line-up, and deserving of the #4 spot in the IAD series.


Former IAD agent Katrina “Trinity” Cross is in desperate need of a vacation. When a friend asks for a personal favor, Trinity agrees to fly to the island of Sunset Point, only to find that things in paradise aren’t what they seem…
Jackson Stone is a man who likes regulation and order, but when Katrina Cross arrives on his island, life as he knows it’ll never be the same.
Falling behind schedule is not allowed in Maxwell King’s orderly world. Missing money, cheap materials and a dead foreman top of the list of his problems, but nothing shakes him more than the sexy siren that sets his body on fire…
As the investigation heats up, Maxwell and Jackson both fall for Trinity, but she can’t choose between the uptight corporate mogul and the rough and ready police Lieutenant. Can she find a way to keep them both or will their love become a casualty at the Cross Point?


Laurie Roma lives in Chicago, and is the author of the IAD Agency and Arcadian series. She has always loved immersing herself in a good book and now enjoys the pleasure of creating her own. She can usually be found tapping away on her keyboard, creating worlds for her characters while she listens to music. Of course her playlist depends on her mood…but then again, so does her writing.

An avid reader of the romance genre, nothing bothers her more than annoying characters. Seriously, who wants a happy ending for someone that pisses you off? She loves tough alpha-male heroes and strong heroines that have brains as well as beauty. Her novels are filled with both passionate romance and down and dirty lust-driven interludes, as she believes both are essential to a good love story. She loves to hear from her readers and can be reached at
