The Truth About Billy: Humor, Romance and Suspense Collide – as New Novel Hurtles Red Herrings at Readers. Curious? Read on!
Lori Lyn’s ‘The Truth About Billy’ takes a departure from the often-stagnant narratives that grace romantic fiction and instead mashes them up, stirs in a few teaspoons of quirk and spits back out a truly unique story that is off-the-wall and heart-pounding. There’s an American being held captive by Brazilian drug lords, a distraught lover trying to figure out a ransom deal and an ex-marine who has stepped in to help despite hating both of their guts. This is no ordinary romance novel – with readers warned to prepare for heaps of distractions and misleading digressions that make the adventure all the more unforgettable.
For Immediate Release
Port Angeles, WA – When it comes to romantic fiction, everyone knows the drill; fragile blonde girl falls in love with billionaire; said couple escape to an island, and a shocking twist reveals that one of them is actually shacked up with someone else. This is exactly the kind of stereotype and cliché that writer Lori Lyn has torn up and tossed out of the window.
In ‘The Truth About Billy’, Lyn passionately departs from the norm to stir her romance story up into a cocktail of comedy, suspense and an adventure that will leave readers dumbfounded at what could come next.
American Evelyn Parker has only twenty days left on her Brazilian visa to save her beloved Billy, kidnapped by reputedly ruthless drug lords. Brazilian authorities and the U.S. Embassy have told her to simply pay the ransom but Evelyn will only hand over the money once Billy is safely back in her arms. She hires reluctant ex-Marine Hicks to help her make the arduous trip into the Amazon Basin. And Hicks makes no bones that he not only doesn’t trust her, he doesn’t even like her.
So what will he do once he learns the truth about Billy?
“Look, the bottom line is that there’s just too many romance stories out there pressed from the same cookie cutter,” says Lyn. “The market is screaming out for something new, which means the usual traditions need to be left behind. This story is a fun and tumultuous adventure that is slightly off-the-wall – with plenty of romance sprinkled throughout to keep readers engaged. It’s about breaking free of the genre’s bonds and not being afraid to lighten the spirit a bit.”
Continuing, “I toss red herrings at readers throughout, deliberately leading them down paths that have no bearing on the story’s final outcome and – when they least expect it – I sucker punch them with a secret about Billy that will leave their jaws on the floor. In short – they will never stop guessing! I hope they’ll love my likable and vivid characters, revel in the rich landscapes they’ll be visiting and enjoy the fact that there is some romantic fiction out there that doesn’t play out on yachts or involve bondage in an elevator!”
‘The Truth About Billy’, from Trifecta Publishing House, will be available for pre-order from May 16th, 2016.
