9780615546674: Escape!

WHEN A THREATENED ARCHITECT NEEDS SOLID HELP, HIS STRONGEST ALLY IS A FEISTY FEMALE.

The author's original intent for Escape! was a fast-paced romantic thriller suitable for escaping boredom on a coast-to-coast flight. While watching the vast landscape rolling under the wings, journalist Henderson visualized a hot fugitive couple running from cold contract killers, eluding pursuit by the FBI and every other police agency along a 2000-mile journey from Lake Michigan to the Pacific Ocean.  

Among the plot's surprises was one for the author -- the unexpected emergence of the assertive and spicy Elissa Bennett Pope as the story's brightest star. 

Elissa was the child of Latin-immigrant parents in Chicago's wealthiest suburb. Groomed from puberty to become a debutante and wife of a Lake Forest millionaire, she landed a beast who assaulted her over his own failures. Her urge for freedom led to a bitter divorce, with barely enough funds to establish Elissa as a real estate broker, property manager, and (for sanity sake) a summer stock theatrical performer. 

Heat soars when California architect Grey Harper arrives in posh Lake Forest to convert an adjacent army base into a $60 million luxury housing development. Elissa's agency locates a suitable cottage for him to rent. While they are meeting in that cottage, a strange intruder sets in motion Elissa's most hectic escape ever -- running with Harper for their lives to a stunning climax at his spectacular cliff-top refuge in colorful Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

Throughout the 2000-mile road race, Elissa is never quite sure whether Harper is actually a brilliant architect (complete with a California tan, water-blue eyes surrounded by crinkles whenever he smiles, a masculine voice and a wry sense of humor) -- or an eccentric widower with a dark past, who is accused by the FBI of murdering his Chicago client to cover-up a major scandal. 

Elissa's survival is at stake in either case, and she must rely upon her own wits, her hard-earned cash, and her raw courgage, every minute of every day -- and night!

From the Author:

MY URGE to write "Escape!" came out of my deep conviction that women in our society are getting a raw deal.
 
During my youth, women were regarded as "the weaker sex." Recently, in reaction to the thunder for women's rights, their worthiness quotient in comic books and movies has been pushed all the way into the arena of martial arts -- like a woman has to beat up a man in order to measure up!

That's nonsense. Instead of making women behave tougher, society should be making MEN behave gentler -- at least in the arena of social advancement.
  
My wife and daughter have demonstrated to me that strong women are versatile, self-motivated, smart, intelligent, courageous, compassionate, loving, competent, generous, talented, dedicated, nurturing, graceful, alert, faithful, fair, and durable -- by nature!
 
Yet, most movies and TV shows can't seem to place more than one female for every ten males in a cast of characters. The ratio is just as thin for celebrity appearances on late-night talk shows. The usual result is... boring!
 

I did not start to write "Escape!" with a female lead. But my attitudes, as expressed above, kept nagging me in that direction. And the result is Elissa Bennett Pope.

Descrizione libro Pine Tree Press / Pine Tree Arts. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 338 pages. Ever had those moments, yearning to hit the road and just follow the sun In opulent Lake Forest along Chicagos North Shore, Elissa Bennett Pope threw away a fortune because she couldnt stand being married to it. She was ripe for any escape even if it required the company of a stranger accused of murder. After unearthing a hot scandal from the Cold War, Architect Grey Harper denied shooting his corporate client at the decommissioned Fort Sheridan army base. Whoever did that would target Harper next, he insisted and Elissa, too, because she had kept a business meeting with Harper at the exact wrong time. Racing west on I-80 toward Harpers clifftop home at Carmel By-the-Sea, it seems impossible to evade an FBI manhunt joined by every law enforcement agency along 2200 miles. Even more ominous are the men without faces from the Pentagon, where top secrets must always be contained. Against staggering odds, Harper is clever maybe too clever for Elissa If hes trying to hide from everybody, does a gorgeous companion become an attraction or distraction Accomplice or hostage And within her own mind, is her astounding beauty a deadly curseAll journeys must end. This one closes with a bang. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Codice libro della libreria 9780615546674
