About the Book
Third mistake’s a charm.
Second Chances, Book 6
Georgie Russell has always been a full-steam-ahead, spur-of-the-moment, no-looking-back kind of girl. But as midnight on New Year’s Eve rolls around with her friends coming up with wine-induced, second-chance goals, all eyes turn to her.
They all know her “runaway bride” history. Three exes attest to her aversion to vows of any kind. Maybe it’s time she tried to make amends…especially to ex-fiancé ...more
Everyone loves a mystery but the kind that I find that makes for the best reading, and for myself as an author, the most fun writing, are the unsolved kind.
The typical mystery classic form involves a missing person or thing. And in the case of a person, they can either be missing; as in kidnapped or disappeared, or dead.
Then it’s up to our protagonist; detective, cop or connected party to find out literally – ‘who done it’!
I had this book when I was a kid, filched it off my parents’ shelf. It was a history of the 13th century, a big, dense, black-bound thing with ornate lettering and grim, medieval illuminations showing battles, plague victims, mournful processions and mass executions. I couldn’t really read it—I was a slow reader as a child—but I used it as a spell book, my Necronomicon, my forbidden book. My parents were cool and let me keep it, even at the ...more
As en erotic romance writer, I’m familiar with the concept of a sexy job. Ones that involve uniforms, for instance. Police officers, firefighters. Often these come with power attached, which leads on to the more recent concept of business being sexy – or, more specifically, anything that makes you into a billionaire. Sadly there aren’t as many of them, so we’ll have to manage with the standard businessman in a suit.
After one reaches a certain age and sees that life is short and you cannot take anything with you when you leave..to make a difference, one would like to give back to society ( which gave me all that I learnt & have). As one does not have the time & energy to go and speak and meet, writing a book multiplies the effort ...more
I write mystery fiction about an amateur detective named Diana Andrews. It feels a little strange to call her an “amateur” anything, because she is by profession an escort-level prostitute.
The big problem in writing about an amateur detective is justifying her involvement in the case. Why doesn’t she behave like a normal person and leave it to the police? With Diana it’s an easy question to answer. In most of my stories she must solve the case to ...more

Milton Berle once said, “Laughter is an instant vacation.”
That’s telling ’em!When I need a break from writing mysteries, I put my comedy cap on and write spoofs. Great diversion. Good publicity. And a lot of fun. What’s not to like?
A ton of things in the news can be spoofed, so I never want for material. For example, we recently celebrated Earth Day, and that got me thinking of folks on other planets who don’t have a day on ...more
At least that’s what I tell myself about the secrets I keep. I don’t have a choice, not if I want to keep my daughter safe. And keep him Colin safe too. There are enemies in the shadows waiting to strike from all sides. I’m holding them out with my bare hands, but it’s hard not to get crushed in the process.
And the truth has a way of coming out.
If I’m not careful, the past I’ve been working so ...more
Kat says: I’ve read Crystal’s books for years, romances under both of her names, and she knows how to create an atmosphere that draws you into the story. I was drawn to The Look of Love for its setting (Virginia, where I live) and the premise of a “macho” man who hasn’t forgotten his roots. In this first of a trilogy, MMA fighter Gunnar has come home to help his mother run her hair salon. Sounds easy, but there’s baggage – namely the girl he left ...more
