I think that pretty much answers the question there. But giving the benefit of the doubt, most of these people who ask don’t know me intimately. They are readers, the conversations happen on the fly, and really no one knows about my life outside of being an author. So my standard response has been, “Some personality quirks but I’ve never put a real life incident in my writing.”
Keeping that in mind, if you do decide to check out Lie To Me, and you start understanding what exactly Sasha did professionally, what she knew to lead her to her current threats – as outlandish as those elements might seem, they were the ones that spent the most time back and forth with, “Can I do this? No. What about this? No. Well then… what about this? That would work. Tweak this, tweak that, and you’re good to go.”

|MY REVIEW COMING SOON!|
by Tori St. Claire
After helping to break up a Russian human trafficking ring as part of the CIA’s elite Black Opal team, Alexei Nikanova’s newest assignment is to rescue one of the stolen women and return her to her father. When he arrives in Dubai, he discovers his target is Sasha Zablosky—a woman he knows all too well, and who has haunted him ever since their unforgettable time together in Moscow, two and a half years earlier. But he finds Sasha reluctant to leave her sheikh, the only true friend she’s ever known. Only Alexei can’t give her a choice.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
While that manuscript gathered dust-bunnies beneath the bed, she went on to establish herself as a contemporary, historical, and paranormal author under the pen name, Claire Ashgrove. Her writing, however, skirted a fine line between hot and steamy, and motivated by authors she admired, she pushed her boundaries and made the leap into erotica, using the darker side of human nature and on-the-edge suspense to drive grittier, sexier, stories.
Her erotic romantic suspense novels are searingly sensual experiences that unite passion with true emotion, and the all-consuming tie that binds -- love.
