In a literary world where crime fiction positions most women as inferior or insecure when compared to their male counterparts – C. R. Lemons is out to shake things up. In ‘Getting Him Off Quickly’, Lemons takes a gripping crime-laden narrative and not only injects spine-tinging erotica, but introduces a tireless heroine who plays by her own rules and excels in her Paralegal role with gusto.
Fort Worth, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/24/2014 -- While romance and crime have both been staples of literature for generations, the two genres rarely exist on equal footing or fuse with quite the power of C. R. Lemons’ ‘Getting Him Off Quickly’. This fast-paced and engrossing narrative has it all; crime, romance, erotica and a positive portrayal of women that seldom makes the pages of most existing novels.
It’s all part of Lemons’ mandate to give readers something wholly unique and defy convention.
Paralegal Daisy Sinclair works for a well-known successful criminal defense attorney in downtown Fort Worth. She works hard and plays even harder, but has a code to never mix business with pleasure.
This code is tested when her boss hires irresistibly sexy Warren Cole, a criminal investigator, to partner with her in a case defending a prominent figure against a double murder charge.
“My goal from the outset was to write a novel that perfectly balanced crime and romance,” explains Lemons. “It’s not unusual to see detectives or legal personnel fall for each other in literature, but it often stops before it gets exciting. I really hit hard with the romance and erotica; sex is a natural part of any relationship and hence something I didn’t want to shy away from.”
Continuing, “I also wanted to tackle the prevailing problem in all genres of women being undervalued and their strengths underplayed. Daisy is stronger than all of the men around her, isn’t afraid to shun the norm to live her life and pursues everything she desires without restraint. Women’s status has seen dramatic change in society over the past fifty years, and now it is time to bring the literary world up to speed.”
To date, the novel has garnered a string of rave reviews. For example, Reader ‘MAM’ comments, “While this is not what I normally read the plot grabbed me right off the bat and kept me captivated until the end. It is well written and I hope to see more of C. R. Lemons writings.”
