Romantic Suspense/Mystery, Thriller, Suspense


Shocked by family tragedy, Jasmine Hartwell returns home with a need to do something meaningful with her life. Romeo Moretti, the only man Jasmine has ever loved, but could never have, is now an international singing sensation, adored by millions. However, he is disillusioned with his fame and decides to use his high profile for a good purpose by hosting a benefit concert in the Maldives, which will be broadcast across the world.
It has been five years since Jasmine and Romeo have seen each other, but a heartbreaking twist of fate leads to a reunion between them. Romeo whisks Jasmine away to the Maldives, to help with the concert’s publicity, but their path to success is fraught with challenges and danger, as they battle to resist their burning desire for one another.








Danger, suspense, heat, and tension

Wanted in Paradise offers suspense, romance, a villain or two, a bit of a love triangle, and danger. While I didn’t really get into the lead character’s personalities, their relationship was an interesting up and down ride. The story is written in third person. It offers informative dialogue about the beautiful Maldives locale and Romeo’s passion for climate change. Interesting secondary characters. I did find I was more into the story from the midpoint. Good start for this author’s debut.
