Turning Point (The Kathleen Turner Series)
After her promotion from law firm Runner to Investigator, Kathleen Turner is learning the ropes of her new job from none other than assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, a situation her boyfriend Blane Kirk is none too happy about. But the lessons with Kathleen take a back seat when Kade becomes a target. Previously untouchable, his enemies now know of the chink in his armor – his brother’s girlfriend.
And Kade’s not the only thing coming between Kathleen and Blane. From Blane’s inexplicable defense of a man guilty of a horrible crime, to a mysterious stranger from Kathleen’s past, to Kathleen’ risky investigation into human traffickers, the obstacles mount against a relationship that’s just begun to find trust again.
While Blane considers a job offer that would take him back to the front lines in the war on terror, Kathleen is determined to pursue her new career, with or without his approval. Unfortunately, her current case is far more dangerous than anyone knows. Someone close to Blane will go to extreme lengths to split them up, lengths that may prove worse than death for Kathleen.
Kathleen, Blane and Kade must atone for the sins of the past and the present. The fallout will force Kathleen to a turning point…in her career, and her life.
Ali asked me what the secret ingredient was to creating a serial heroine that readers will love. The answer is I have no idea. Lol
Readers love different heroines for many reasons, and an equal number of people will dislike the heroine for the same reasons! There’s no magic formula, I wish there was! Every book is read through the filter of the reader’s personal experience, convictions, beliefs and character. Some people like a strong, can-do-it-herself, kickass heroine. Others prefer a woman who can do it herself, but why bother when there’s a strong, sexy man there who’ll do it for her.
When I write my heroine, Kathleen, I try to make her as realistic to her character as possible. She’s not perfect, no one is, so she sometimes says something she regrets or makes a bad decision. She’s impulsive, which sometimes works to her detriment. She’s also young and not as experienced in worldly things. Some readers complain that “if only she’d just stay put like she’s told, she wouldn’t get into any trouble and wouldn’t get hurt!” Well, yes, that’s true, but would also make for a pretty boring book. J The choices she makes fit with her character as I see her, and as an author, that’s the best you can do. Some readers will identify with and like your characters, and some won’t, and that’s okay. As a writer, your books can’t be all things to everyone, it’s impossible.
So Kathleen Turner experiences murder, mayhem, danger, love, seduction and temptation in this series. It changes her, toughens her, turns her a little wiser, a little more cynical, and in the end she’ll be quite different from where she started, but not in the ways that matter. She’s loyal, kind, trusting, smart and has a big heart. Those things are at her core and don’t change, no matter what life throws at her, which is something than can be said for most of us. No matter how life treats us or how cynical we get, we are who we are and that’s what makes us identify with characters in books, be it a little or a lot.
