Five Things You'd Never Guess about Rachel Woods

Here are five things you’d probably never guess about me, Rachel Woods:
,br> 1. After working at Barnes and Noble for a few years, I went through a period where I couldn’t stand to look at books!

2. I am obsessed with cake! I could eat it every day, but I don’t really like to bake!

3. I am one of the few people I know who still watch daytime soap operas. One of my greatest joys is yelling at the characters on The Young and the Restless!

4. The main character in Flawless Danger—Spencer Edwards—is based upon several real life stories of women who actually drugged men and stole their valuables!

5. I like to call my writing “sexy/dangerous”, a version of the romantic suspense/woman in jeopardy genre, in which sexy girls find themselves in dangerous positions!

Trying to rectify the mistake that unleashed his dark past, Sione runs to the rescue of a beautiful woman staying at his resort, saving her from a brutal attack … The sly beauty who doesn’t want a hero is no damsel in distress, considering the suspicious circumstances she seems involved in. He should stay away from the beautiful liar, but something about her makes him want to forget his doubts and do anything—even if it means relying on his violent instincts—for a chance to be with her.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Sighing, Spencer shook her head.

She wanted to explain why she’d decided to “date” Ben. She wanted to tell him she’d stolen from him because she was afraid of his feelings, and even more afraid of her own feelings, afraid she would lose herself if she fell in love with him.

But, would he understand?

 Could she even explain it?

“So, Step Two is get close to the resort owner,” she said, rubbing her eyes, trying not to cry. “And then what? Get into his closet and steal from him?”

“I told you the favor won’t be anything criminal,” Ben said, an edge in his tone. “There’s no law against getting close to someone.”

“Just how close do you want me to get?”

“Close, but not too close,” Ben said. “When it’s all over, you have to be able to walk away, and not look back. You have to be able to turn your back on him, even if he’s bleeding on the floor, begging you for help.”

He seemed to be unable to resist trying to get under her skin, and this time, he’d gone too deep.

Deeper than the knife she’d plunged into his gut.

About the Author:
As a pre-teen, a young Rachel quickly tired of the Sweet Valley High Series and moved on to work by Sidney Sheldon, Jackie Collins and Dominick Dunne, which was just the spark necessary to fuel her love of writing. Her first stories were written on a Brother typewriter during long summer days in Texas, where she always had an extra typewriter ribbon and correction tape handy.

Rachel later studied journalism and graduated from the University of Houston where she published articles in the Daily Cougar. She is a freelance writer and blogger with a penchant for melodrama and a frequent traveler to beach locales. Many of her stories take place on the islands, which she has visited around the world.

Rachel writes complex, multicultural stories centered on strong women in jeopardy, fighting for love and their own lives. When not writing, this read-a-holic can be found listening to audiobooks, reading the Book of Jeremiah, or scouring soap opera blogs. Rachel resides in Houston with her three sock monkeys.
