We invited author Claire Baxter to share about her Flirting With Danger. Here she is...
Aaron Parkes in Flirting With Danger is the
first reformed playboy I’ve written. In case you're not familiar with this
particular trope, the hero in such stories starts out as an unrepentant playboy,
committed to not committing, scoring with dozens of women and never showing
real affection for any of them. He’s the rake of regency romance, and the ladies’
man of contemporary romance novels. Charming, attractive and dangerous. The
love 'em and leave 'em type.
But one girl is immune to his charms.
Once he meets his match, the playboy begins
pursuing her as determinedly as he ran from all the women before her. But how
can he convince her that he’s genuine? How can she believe that he’s willing to
give up his womanizing ways and settle down with her?
In Flirting With Danger, Aaron’s co-worker
Jasmine is the one woman who doesn’t fall under his spell. In fact she despises
him. So when he begins to see her in a different light, he’s stunned. She’s not
his usual type, and definitely not a one-nighter.
The more time they spend together, the more
Jasmine realises that Aaron is not the shallow serial-dater that she’s always
thought him. There’s much more to Aaron than what's on the surface, and Jasmine
likes what she sees. But can she risk her heart with him? And can Aaron overcome
his own issues to give Jasmine what she needs from him?
