Dangerous Desires
by Dawn Altieri
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Three years after Emma Sloane’s wealthy fiance’s mysterious death, she’s finally ready to move on and pursue her own dreams. But her plans are derailed when she’s attacked outside her New York City apartment in what she thinks is a random violent incident. Then other women who look just like her start turning up dead…
Homicide Detective Jake Quinn is haunted by the one case he couldn’t solve. When he’s put in charge of a new high-profile murder case, he interviews a victim who escaped a similar attack—and to his shock it’s Emma, the former fiancée of his unsolved murder victim.
Neither expects the sparks of attraction between them. But the killer escalates, clearly targeting Emma, and Jake’s job is on the line. Can he solve this case before it’s too late for both of them?

Writing Dangerous Desires

Dawn Altieri


As any writer will tell you, the first draft is never the final draft, and Dangerous Desires was definitely no exception. Roughly eight years, three titles, six editors, and who knows how many rounds of revisions… to say it was a long journey would be an understatement, to say the least.

I’ve been writing on and off since I was a teenager, mostly rambling, soap opera-style stories inspired by the shows my mom used to watch on television. Jake and Emma’s story was the first one I actually completed at a respectable novel length of just under 400 pages, but it needed a lot of work—and I mean, a LOT. So much that I actually wrote and published Burn before I managed to finish Dangerous Desires.

Dangerous Desires was truly a labor of love for me and the characters will always have a special place in my heart. I hope you enjoy reading about them as I enjoyed writing them!

Author Bio

A lifelong resident of northern New Jersey, Dawn Altieri has been scribbling stories practically since birth. After reaching a milestone birthday (she won’t say which one), she figured it was about time she took a shot at writing professionally.
With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them. When she’s not curled up on the sofa with her laptop, her latest story, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), she can be found volunteering in the world of animal rescue. To keep a roof over her head, she works in the printing industry as a graphic production artist. She shares her home with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of rescued fur-babies.
