From cover to cover, Red Light Special by Risque delivers a whirlwind of murder, scandal, secrets, and unforgettable sex. Simply stated, Red Light Special is the erotic thriller at its best. The story starts out with a bang as an unidentified woman describes how she’s hiding in the closet of a loft apartment where the love of her life—New York mayor Kenyatta Smith—has just walked in with a high-priced escort. As he engages in unadulterated sex with the woman, the lady in the closet silences her pistol and shoots the other woman dead.

The fast-paced excitement continues, the heart-racing suspense builds, and the nonstop arousal action gets steamier page after page. The cast of characters in Red Light Special is unforgettable.

Monday Smith is Kenyatta’s loving and supportive wife who would do almost anything for the love of her husband. Although she’s aware of his indiscretions, she is dead-set on being a stand-by-your-man woman. Plus, she’s addicted to his sexual prowess and would rather die than lose her status as the mayor’s wife. But how long can she endure his cavalier attitude and his secrets - and what would happen if her own secrets were revealed?

Art gallery owner and madam Collyn Bazemore’s company Red Light Special services the city’s elite and wealthy, including athletes and politicians. When one of her key employees turns up missing, she is determined to find her at all costs. She knows the secrets of many well-known people in New York, and they had better not cross her. In the romance department, she’s been hurt and has no intentions of letting a man get too close to her heart. However, when Blessing Shields steps into her life, she may have to reconsider.

Blessing - aka Bless - is a man who knows what he wants and goes after it. Although he’s a business associate of the mayor, he meets Collyn and is immediately drawn to her, the sexual tension between the two hard to ignore.

Readers will find themselves hard-pressed to put this book down. The suspense alone is guaranteed to keep the pages turning. With believable, well-crafted characters combined with passionate lovemaking and at times no-holds-barred sex, Red Light Special makes for a powerful and highly entertaining read with memorable scenes you’ll recall long after the book is closed.
