Okay, okay, I admit it. Better Off Without Her does not fit the typical romance genre. I knew it when I wrote it. I knew it when I had it edited. I knew it all along. But there are some books that are just different, and there is no way to tag them or set them apart from the norm.
Better Off Without Her is a Western Thriller. That's really what it is.
What makes this book a little strange is the subject matter and the fact that it rests with an Erotic Romance Publisher, Secret Cravings Publishing.
The publisher took it on as a challenge.
It begins with Victor Frank, a man that has been physically tortured all his life. A man that has no chance to fit in anywhere. So Frank is bent on one thing…revenge. It drives him, if motivates him to go on with life, it is what he lives for. He knows nothing of love as he's never been exposed to it. He can't even communicate with the world because the world never communicated with him. He's a man in the wrong place, in the wrong time, with no place to go but down. He's driven by all the wrong things in life, to all the wrong people, for all the wrong reasons. He's crazy and he doesn't even know it. And his only redeeming quality in life is that when he kills, he kills for a justice no one understands.
So Victor Frank lives in a world all his own, leaving a bloody trail along the way.
It isn't surprising when John T, and Wesley team up as ex-Texas Rangers to find Frank. Wesley had been a guard at a prison in Texas and met Frank face to face during his escape. John T met Frank when Frank killed his mother. Rascal Mills joins the two when his wife is murdered. And then there's Pepper an unusual girl who wants her own kind of revenge on Frank for killing her father.
But who is Victor Frank? Why won't the law go after him? Why has this man gone for years without capture?
No, Better Off Without Her is not a romance, although it has the element included. It isn't a typical western, although it follows the outline. It is in truth a chilling book of murder, of an injustice. It belongs in another genre, and I wanted to warn you before you read it…
