Craving Love & Death is a dark romantic suspense and the
first standalone installment in The Perilously Pretty Series,
a compilation of wicked romance novels about badass women from all eras and walks of life.
Most women in the ‘50s dream of a perfect life, pleasing their bread-winning husbands and raising happy families. Vivienne…well…she dreams of a life in which she doesn't succumb to the need to murder the men she sleeps with.
Vivienne Carson plays the role of a quiet, docile nightclub singer and waitress for her friends and what family she has left, but, behind closed doors, she gives into an insatiable lust and need that no man can escape.
She just wants to live out her days working at Molly's and ignoring the urge to claim a new victim. However, her best friend, Betty, convinces her to join in on an impromptu double-date with a couple of handsome sailors looking to enjoy their leave in Charleston, South Carolina.
Sexy, dark, and sly as hell, Naval Lieutenant Dean Vitson may be the only man who can give Vivie a reason to nix her “bad habits”—but he's running from his own dirty past. His secrets could turn her world upside down.
Can Vivienne change her murderous ways to be with Dean?
Will she want to when she finds out what he's hiding?
