Marquel Series Book 3
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Recovering from a kidnapping that ended lives on Mt. Lee, Los Angeles, the actress best known by the stage name Marquel no longer has to worry about her
abductor returning. Her live-in bodyguard, retired military officer Rick Jones, and his agency are keeping watch over tabloid-journalist-turned-kidnapper Mark
Collins’ friends in the Vasquez cartel.
While her living arrangement with Rick is strictly professional, their chemistry
becomes unavoidable, making their proximity ever more challenging as she works through the losses that brought them together.
As her everchanging world and relationships collide, can Marquel endure the winding roads of fame and loss that will ultimately lead to her redemption?
Emily was a protege of the late master of the pulps or paperback originals, Harry Whittington. Emily interviewed Whittington during her days as a feature writer for the Clearwater Sun daily newspaper and its weekly division. They became
friends and he taught her how to plot and gave her approval of the original outline and sample chapter for “Marquel” shortly before he died.
After Whittington passed away, Emily challenged herself to write as her mentor
did and wrote a chapter a day and finished the novel “Marquel” in 52 days. For more details on the novel’s history read:
She had not planned on a sequel or 3rd book until readers requested more. Emily also writes YA paranormal, screenplays and nonfiction.
