THE TYCOON MURDERER is the first book in a new time-travel romance/cozy mystery series set in the Pacific Northwest.

When Josie Matthews buys a Victorian mansion with a notorious past, she hopes to turn it into a successful inn. While she expects all the headaches of renovating an old house, she isn’t prepared to be sent back in time to the site of a double-murder which occurred at the mansion in 1929. While the murders were never solved, they were believed to have been committed by Wall Street financier, David Remington, forever known as the Tycoon Murderer.

At the height of the Roaring Twenties, David Remington has invited several friends and acquaintances to a house party, including a Chicago bootlegger and his moll, a Broadway playwright and his best friend, a corrupt U.S. Senator and his wife, a handsome silent screen star and a disgruntled federal agent. After a mysterious woman arrives uninvited, guests start dying one-by-one, making everyone wonder who will be next.

Determined to solve the murders before being sent back to her own time, Josie investigates the crimes and tries not to be the next victim. But the biggest mystery is whether David Remington was falsely accused or whether he truly is the Tycoon Murderer.

THE TYCOON MURDERER is a time-travel romance/cozy mystery with a retro flair. It contains mild violence, humor and a great deal of bootleg booze.

EXCERPT

Chapter One

Melinda

…Just as I headed towards my desk, the front door burst open, slamming against the wall. A stranger stood in the doorway, tall and over six feet. His coal-black hair was covered in dust. Or what I thought might be coal-black hair was covered in dust. He was head to toe, nearly invisible underneath the soot. I don’t know if I could have recognized him even if I knew who he was.

“Ma’am—” He bent over and wheezed, grasping at any bit of clean air he could find. “Ma’am,” he repeated and fell against one of the desks. I climbed over his large frame and pushed hard against the raging wind to shut and latch the door again. I had to drop all the coats and lunch pails. “Lord have mercy!” I couldn’t help screaming at the sight of him.

“Help,” he pleaded, reaching a filthy hand up to me.

If he weren’t dressed in decent wool trousers and a leather jacket, I would have thought him possibly a hobo off the Santa Fe line that crisscrossed through these parts twice a week. But he had to be some sort of salesman or something. I didn’t have the time to study him further or assess his peculiar image on the floor of my schoolhouse.

“Just a minute,” I said, scooping the jackets and pails back up and rushing them into the supply closet, where I hastily dealt them out. I didn’t know who this man was, so I wouldn’t let him inside our storm shelter, but I wouldn’t let him die out there in the classroom on my watch either.

I grabbed one of the tin mugs I kept in the closet for coffee, back when we still had enough fuel to heat the woodstove. It had once been my favorite early morning activity. I would heat the percolator and pour myself a cup of hot, musky coffee before the students arrived. But even coffee was a dream these days. The Depression and the Dust Bowl had robbed us of nearly everything. For some of us, even our lives. I feared this was where we might all be headed right now, and my one consolation was that, at least, the children were with someone who loved them as much as their desperate mothers did. And I knew their mothers were all thinking this very same thing now, hiding in closets and bathrooms in their homes, far from their babies—the only thing they had left in the world.

I gave the man a drink of water, which he gulped down like a hungry animal. “More, please?” “Okay, but just one cup more. I need the rest for the children. We don’t know how long we’ll be hunkered down in here.” The storm howled like a banshee as it scraped against the red clay earth of Oklahoma. This man was a stranger. I didn’t want him too close to the children.

#CharacterInterview “Meet the Character Day: Chatting with Vinnie Valentine from A Deceptive Match” by Kelli A. Wilkins

This “Meet the Character Day” blog is part of a series examining my romance novels. In each “Behind the Scenes” blog, I talk about why I wrote the book, share my thoughts on the plot and/or characters, and reveal what I loved most (or least) about writing the book. The “Meet the Character Day” blogs are fun chats with the heroes and heroines from my romances. Warning: blogs may contain spoilers.

Hello romance lovers! Today we’re chatting with Vinnie Valentine, the sexy hero from A Deceptive Match by Kelli A. Wilkins.

Q: Greetings, Vinnie. A Deceptive Match is a contemporary romance set in the world of professional wrestling. Can you tell us a bit more about the book?A Deceptive Match cover

I’d be glad to. The action starts right on page one. My boss and devious wrestling promoter, Nick August, has arranged for a reporter named Danny Stone to follow me around for a month and write an “inside story” on the wrestling business. Sounds simple, right?

Well, Nick and I figured Danny was a guy—nope! Imagine our surprise when we learned Danni is short for Danielle. Danni and I travel on the road together and I show her the ropes of the business, so to speak.

Over the course the book we realize we’re attracted to each other and start a relationship. As if that’s not complicated enough, I’m also feuding with an arch rival, facing the biggest wrestling match of my career, and overcoming a severe knee injury. There’s a lot going on in this book.

Tell us about your first meet with Danni. It wasn’t love at first sight, was it?:

Nope, not at all. It was a rocky start, to say the least. Nick August was manipulating Danni (and me) as an opportunity to get publicity for his wrestling organization. He wanted me to make sure Danni wrote a story with a positive spin on the industy. It was my job to keep her away from anything controversial that would give her a negative impression of the business or the wrestlers. Basically Nick wanted me to babysit her, and he threatened that if the story didn’t go well, I’d be fired.

Needless to say, I was resentful of Danni’s intrusion into our world, and even more resentful of Nick putting me in that position. I thought Nick was using Danni to spy on me. I was also worried that her following me around would make me look bad to the other wrestlers and I’d lose their respect. I didn’t want anything to do with her or the story, but my job was at stake.

And Danni wasn’t thrilled with me, either. We were stuck with each other and not happy about it. We were on the road for a month, going from arena to arena and hotel to hotel. We got on each other’s nerves a lot and had our fair share of arguments. I think she called me an arrogant caveman—among other things—at some point.

That’s when I realized I was behaving like “a complete ass” as my best friend Everett would say. Ev set me straight about a lot of things and pointed out the fact that I was acting like a jerk to Danni because I liked her. At the time I refused to believe he was right… but he was.

Wow! When did things change for you? When did you realize you were attracted to each other?

To Danni’s credit, she didn’t take any crap from me. After a few big blowouts, she was ready to abandon the whole story. She was frustrated with the way I was acting and made it clear she wouldn’t be pushed around. That made me respect her, and we started getting along.

After Danni and I cleared the air, we discovered we liked each other, but were fighting our feelings. We both had baggage from bad past relationships and didn’t want to take a risk and get involved.

The night Danni subbed for my valet turned everything around for us. I saw her in a new light. She looked so beautiful that I kissed her in front of the whole world.

Once I kissed her, we realized we wanted to be with each other, but we still had some obstacles to overcome. I won’t go into all the details here, but we both had trust issues. Danni was afraid I’d use her while we were on the road and then forget her. It took some convincing to get her to believe my feelings were sincere. After that, things got a lot hotter for us from there. (Laughs)

Was Danni a wrestling fan before she met you?
Yes, she grew up watching it on TV and going to live matches, but she didn’t understand the behind-the-scenes aspect of the business. I explained everything to her along the way. Danni was a good sport and quickly adapted to the crazy wrestling world. She even played a major role in the pay-per-view storyline. She was my valet (and more) for my big title match and really came through for me when I needed her. And man, can that woman deliver a wicked chair shot!

Do readers need to be wresting fans to enjoy A Deceptive Match?
Nope! Wrestling is the setting or backdrop to the main romance. Kelli wrote the story in a way to help non-wrestling fans understand the moves, terminology, and action. So they won’t be confused or lost.

Kelli says the only difference between A Deceptive Match and other contemporary romances is that the story is about wrestlers instead of more “traditional” characters, like police officers, Navy SEALs, FBI agents etc. She could have written a similar romance about another sport (like hockey or basketball) but she chose wrestling because she’s been a life-long wrestling fan, and it’s what she knows and loves.

Okay, tell us the truth. Are the characters in A Deceptive Match based on real wrestlers?

Nope. Kelli gets asked this all the time, and I’m here to say emphatically none of the characters in the book are based 100% on any one wrestler. Kelli drew upon her years of wrestling knowledge and took bits and pieces of different wrestlers to create the people in the story. I’m based on at least three different people, and Ev is drawn from at least five different guys. Even Nick August isn’t completely based on a famous “billionaire” wrestling promoter and owner. He’s close, but even he’s not 100%.

What do you and Kelli think of wrestling’s popularity these days?

We’re loving it! The wrestling world is getting lots of exposure and is certainly part of popular culture. There has been a recent wave of wrestler biographies, crossover shows featuring wrestlers, and wrestlers guest-starring on reality shows. Maybe we started a trend, because now people want to see behind-the-scenes shows of what goes on in the ring, out of the ring, and what happens backstage that fans never know. It’s an interesting business, for sure.

Kelli wrote another wrestling romance called A Secret Match. Can you tell us about it?

Sure! It’s sort of a sequel to A Deceptive Match. A Secret Match takes place in the same wrestling world with same characters, but the hero is my friend and ex-tag team partner Everett Kinkaid. Ev is my best friend and he is introduced to readers as a secondary character in A Deceptive Match. He plays the role of matchmaker for Danni and me and is a voice of reason when the two of us have troubles in our relationship. He’s also a smartass and a fantastic pro wrestler, but he’s been hiding a big secret from the world.

Kelli fell in love with Ev when she was writing A Deceptive Match and knew Ev needed a book of his own, so she wrote A Secret Match, which focuses on Ev and his secret. A Secret Match is Ev’s own love story. A gay love story. It’s an excellent book filled with drama and action and it’s an emotional roller coaster. I don’t want to give too much away about it. Kelli will be blogging about the book next week and Ev will be here to share his thoughts soon.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Thank you for having me on this blog. I hope romance readers check out A Deceptive Match. It’s got everything a good wrestling storyline needs: heroes, heels, action, drama, humor, betrayal, suspense—and in this case—hot love scenes. It’s really a great story, and it’s one of Kelli’s favorites. I invite readers to catch up on all of Kelli’s romances and visit her on social media.

Here’s the summary and links for A Deceptive Match:

A DECEPTIVE MATCH

Falling for the wrestler she had been assigned to interview wasn’t part of Danni’s plan, until Vinnie Valentine pinned her heart in a flash.


Disgruntled with her job as the office assistant for a national sports magazine, Danni Stone impersonates a reporter to prove herself to her boss. Her assignment? Spend thirty days on the road with Vinnie Valentine, a sexy professional wrestler.

Life isn’t going well for the Heavyweight Champ. Vinnie is struggling with a manipulative boss, prepping for the most important match of his career, and feuding with his arch-enemy, Thorn. The last thing he needs is a nosy reporter following him around—even if she is hot.

Thrown together in close quarters, Danni can’t help falling for Vinnie, and she unwittingly becomes a key player in his title match. Their mutual attraction grows, and late one night, they give in to the lustful feelings they’ve been fighting.

As their relationship deepens, Danni considers telling Vinnie her secret. But before she can confess the truth, Vinnie discovers she isn’t the reporter she claims to be. Her lie threatens to ruin everything between them. Will their relationship be destroyed by her deception or will their love win out?

#GuestBlog “Behind the Scenes: A Deceptive Match (A Wrestling Romance)” by Kelli A. Wilkins

This “Behind the Scenes” blog is part of a series examining my romance novels. In each blog, I’ll talk about why I wrote the book, share my thoughts on the plot and/or characters, and reveal what I loved most (or least) about writing the book. Warning: Blogs may contain spoilers.

A Deceptive Match is my contemporary romance set in the world of professional wrestling. Watching wrestling has been a tradition in my family for generations (all the way back to my great-grandmother), so I wasn’t entirely surprised when I got the idea to write a wrestling romance. Nowadays, wrestling is more popular than ever, and I’m glad it’s getting the attention it deserves.

A Deceptive Match cover

I took my knowledge of the wrestling world (the good, the bad, and the controversial) and used it as the base for the story. As I considered various plots, I decided the premise would be: a reporter spends a month on the road with wrestlers and writes an in-depth story on the business. The catch? The reporter is a woman named Danni (short for Danielle) and she’s matched up with an uncooperative wrestler named Vinnie Valentine.

Vinnie is forced into this arrangement by his greedy, manipulative boss, Nick August. Vinnie is recovering from a knee injury and is at a crossroads in his career. Nick isn’t subtle about taking away Vin’s championship belt (and his livelihood) if the magazine story doesn’t go well.

And so begins a long and hot summer where Danni and Vin are on the road together, traveling from hotel to hotel and arena to arena. If you’ve ever spent time in a car with someone you don’t get along with, you can imagine the conflict between these two characters! Things get off to a bad start, and Vin isn’t thrilled to play “babysitter” to a woman reporter because he knows it will ruin his reputation with the other wrestlers.

Danni is out of her element and forced to adapt to a world she knows nothing about. Her own insecurities and worries make the situation even worse and she inadvertently causes lots of trouble for Vin. As the book progresses, Danni gets a first-hand look at how the wrestling industry works, from what goes on backstage to how the wrestlers interact with each other, the fans, and their egotistical boss.

And this wouldn’t be a romance without some heat, right? Although Danni calls Vin an arrogant caveman, she finds him attractive. Despite his best intentions, Vin finds himself drawn to Danni, but he is hesitant to get involved with her. They’re both carrying lots of baggage from bad past relationships and fight the desire they feel for each other.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot or share too many spoilers, but over the course of the summer Vin and Danni open up to each other and realize they have more in common than they once thought. Danni comes to Vin’s rescue on a few occasions and even finds herself in the center of a wrestling storyline. Vin uses his charm and humor to break through Danni’s aloof exterior, and they begin a very heated and passionate affair.

I know wrestling isn’t a “traditional” sport like baseball or football, and when I wrote the book I realized that romance readers might not understand—or even like—wrestling. So I used my knowledge of the wrestling world as way to show Danni (and readers) “the ropes” of the business.

Since Danni’s a reporter, she asks a lot of questions, and Vin gives her easy-to-understand answers. These details help readers who know nothing about wrestling follow along with the terminology and let them visualize the action as it takes place in the ring.

A Deceptive Match also introduces readers to Vin’s best friend, Everett Kinkade. Ev is Vin’s former tag team partner, and he appears as a prominent secondary character. Ev offers advice to Vin and Danni and plays counselor (and matchmaker) when the need arises.

Ev has the reputation of a ladies’ man and he’s the hunky wrestling heartthrob all women dream about—but he’s hiding a big secret. I fell in love with Ev while writing the book and decided he needed his own story, so I wrote A Secret Match. (I’ll talk about the book in another blog.) A Secret Match is not a sequel to A Deceptive Match per se, but it features the same wrestling world and has lots of crossover characters, including Vin and Danni.

A Deceptive Match is one of my favorite books. I loved creating the conflict between Vin and Danni and showing how hurt and vulnerable each of them are. And I had fun writing the wrestling scenes! A reader told me you “could see the action taking place on the page and feel the excitement and adrenaline.” Those are great compliments—especially from a non-wrestling fan.

A Deceptive Match received great reviews and I’m happy that readers love the book. It’s got everything a good wrestling storyline needs: heroes, heels, action, drama, humor, betrayal, suspense—and in this case—hot love scenes. I hope you’ll check it out and fall for Danni and Vin as hard as I did.

#Featured “To Buy a Vow (The Vow Series Book 1)” by Chencia C. Higgins


“This book was perfect.” – Reviewer
“Loved that it wasn’t a “typical” storyline and had elements of relationships that many romance stories don’t often show.” – Reviewer
“I went in blind reading this and it caught me by surprise. I was sucked in from the start!” – Reviewer”

What if we could buy a vow to right our wrongs?

For Nedra Phillips, the strain of portraying a strong Black woman to outsiders is finally taking its toll on her. Her marriage to her college sweetheart has begun to fizzle out, with conversations dwindling down to nothing and intimacy becoming sporadic at best. Unwilling to endure the stigma of being a 30-something divorcee, she does everything in her power to hold onto her marriage, but Chris isn’t just on a different page, he’s in a whole other book entirely. Despite their disconnect, her vows meant something to her and marriage is supposed to be forever. When all seems lost, she makes a last-ditch effort in hopes of generating results, but what exactly does a Hail Mary look like between friends and lovers?

Jermaine Hawkins is nearing the end of a prominent career playing professional basketball and is ready to put his retirement plan into action. That plan includes many things but most important on the list is putting an end to his status as a hermit and starting a family. A chance encounter with a firecracker of a woman makes him think he’s found his capital F. But whether that F is for “future” or “frustrating” is to be determined. Can Jermaine convince Nedra that everything happens for a reason while also getting her to give him a chance at something real?

#BookReview “Night Fall” by Nancy Mehl

book cover

April 19-30, 2021 Tour

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Intense from the start, Night Fall is an intriguing read.

Cults, traumatic childhoods, a serial killer with a twisted prophesy, and a superbug that makes Covid19 look tame keep the suspense high.

Fulfilling her dream of becoming an agent with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, Alex Donovan is blind-sided when, in order to stop a madman, she must do something she promised herself she’d never do and return to her old hometown. An estranged aunt has a copy of The Book, a bible-like tome of the secretive cult, The Circle.

A serial killer is using The Book to fulfill a prophesy where only the worthy are left standing.

Alex has to face down her demons, her personal relationship with a murderer, and a budding romance with her partner while trying to stop the plot that would devastate the planet.

I liked Alex. Though she seems distracted a great deal of the time, she’s a good agent. She knows ignoring and burying her past isn’t the answer, but she’s not sure if she’s ready to face it. But people are dying and she has to move forward or more will die. Millions more.

Tightly written, Night Fall has near-perfect pacing with a slow build to the climax. It’s good versus evil, light versus dark in this high-stakes cat and mouse game.

Enjoy!

~~~

Synopsis:

 

Now that Alexandra “Alex” Donavan is finally free of her troubled upbringing, she’s able to live out her childhood dream of working for the FBI. But soon after she becomes a member of the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, authorities in Kansas and Missouri contact them about bodies found on freight trains traveling across the country–all killed in the same way.

Alex never expected to be forced to confront her past in this new job, but she immediately recognizes the graffiti messages the killer is leaving on the train cars. When the BAU sends her to gather information about the messages from her aunt in Wichita, Kansas, Alex is haunted by the struggles she thought she’d left behind forever.

In a race against time to solve the case while battling her own weaknesses, Alex must face how far she’ll go–and what she’s willing to risk–to put a stop to the Train Killer.
