ROMANCE WEEK at NFE continues with the first book in the "Deadly Vices” series of Romantic Suspense novels from Kristine Cayne.
When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department-store photographer…
Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted—if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past.
A Hollywood dream…
Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant—and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career.
Becomes a Hollywood nightmare
But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and cunning stalker who’ll stop at nothing—not even murder—to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition.
And the competition must be eliminated.

3 Good Questions with Author Kristine Cayne
NFE: What book(s) kept you up all night reading?
Kristine Cayne: So many books have kept me up all night! Some of the most recent have been: Larissa Ione's Eternal Rider, J.R. Ward's Lover Reborn, and Riptide by Cherry Adair. All of these books successfully marry romance and suspense or intrigue from the first page to the last. The authors are masters of giving readers just enough information to satisfy, but not enough to answer all the readers' questions. This is what keeps us turning the pages well past our bedtimes.
I have to admit, I had a hard time putting down Lorelei James' All Jacked Up, but that might have been for an entirely different reason :)
NFE: Would Deadly Obsession keep you up all night reading if you hadn’t written it? Why?
Kristine Cayne: Deadly Obsession and Deadly Addiction are both page-turners. New layers are revealed as the story moves forward and unpredictable twists and turns will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat. At the same time, the romance aspects of the book ratchet up in lock-step with the danger. I write stories exactly like the ones I love to read--fast paced, relatable well-developed heroes and heroines, and protagonists with believable motivations that drive their actions.
