Perla Fae is no stranger to pain. With a tragic past and a present break-up, She finds herself starting over. Again.

Jax Maddox is an enigma. Wealthy, powerful, and a force to be reckoned with. He doesn't make decisions based on emotions, and complications are what he deals with in business, not in his personal affairs. But he wants her.

Perla and Jax are set on a collision course, but she resists him in an effort to protect her heart. Just when things start heating up between them, a sinister force threatens to tear them apart when a monster from Perla's past resurfaces.

Tragedy and Desire is a Contemporary, Adult/New-Adult Romance Novel. It contains mature, adult themes, including sexual content and minor violence (not at the same time) and is recommended for ages 18+. If you love contemporary romance books with themes of mystery, suspense, and unexpected plot twists, then I think you will very much enjoy Tragedy and Desire.

Tragedy and Desire by Nicole R. Locker

Tragedy and DesireLooking for hot passion with an overbearing alpha with a hidden heart and a life-worn woman whose life has made her sadder but wiser? Want Fate to step in and mix things up? Need a reason to fan yourself or reach for the ice water? Nicole R. Locker has given readers that and more with TRAGEDY AND DESIRE.

Perla has had some huge tragedies in her past, but she is doing her best to soldier on and pick up the pieces of her life. It only made her more determined to be strong after a horrendous betrayal and break up with her ex. Trust is an issue for her. Complete disclosure and honesty is a must, no players need apply, she is not interested, she will not be easily seduced.

Jax is everything Perla does not need, an overbearing, entitled powerhouse of a man as well as a business tycoon. He uses women and says good bye. No feelings, just pleasure, raw and primal and on his terms. Until the little spitfire that is Perla comes into his life and he finds all he has ever learned about women and how to charms them is exactly what Perla doesn’t want or need. Perla wants the picket fence, the family and a man who will love only her, bed only her and they are few and far between, if they still exist. One thing she knows for certain is that Jax is everything she despises in a man, but he has gotten under her skin like Poison Ivy.

Is it possible that Perla has awakened the inner protector, the inner heart he has kept buried? When Perla is in danger from a stalker, Jax finds he will stop at nothing to keep her safe, but is he trustworthy enough to win her heart?

Whew! This one is hot! Jax is part jerk and part awesome and I have to admit, he spent a long time in the jerk category for me! And Perla? I loved her, this is a woman who stands above the rest with more honor and integrity in her baby finger than many have in their entire bodies! No wonder she is thrown for a loop when Jax takes control of her body. Little did she know she had already taken control of his reluctant heart.

Nicole R. Locker has the steam of erotica, the romance that is boiling over and characters that prove, love can change a leopard’s spots! Well-written, with bold strokes, prepare to watch suspense and romance blend together to keep you turning each page.

I received this copy from Nicole R. Locker in exchange for my honest review.
