Author Biography

Lucy Leroux chose love.

Lucy moved to France for a one-year research contract. Six months later she was living with a handsome Frenchman and six years later is happily married to him…and still in France. When her last employment contract ended Lucy turned to writing.

Frustrated by the lack of quality romance erotica she enjoyed reading she set out to create her own. Her stories feature heroines who are smart, brave, and resourceful. She enjoys writing men who are thoughtful and slightly obsessive alpha males. Her ‘A Singular Obsession’ series is a combination of romance erotica and suspense that feature intertwining characters in their own stand-alone novels. Three are completed and additional four books are planned.

Reviewed by Michelle Mollohan for Readers' Favorite

Calen's Captive: A Singular Obsession Book 2 by Lucy Leroux is the second installment in this book series, but it is a complete, stand-alone romance novel. Calen's Captive tells the tale of Calen and Maia. Calen is the son of an Irish mobster who resisted the family business and has launched a successful and legal enterprise. Maia is an entomology student at Harvard, who finds herself in mortal danger when she is chasing an elusive butterfly through the woods and stumbles upon a body dump taking place. Maia is captured and death appears imminent. Calen has been put in the uncomfortable position of taking his father's place during a meeting with the Russians when he catches a glimpse of Maia. During the negotiations, he demands Maia be given to him and refuses to back down until the Russians concede. Maia is taken to Calen's home where she realizes he means her no harm. Maia is quickly immersed in a new lifestyle, with a luxurious wardrobe and gourmet foods, and 24/7 surveillance to ensure the Russians don't try to eliminate her as a witness. Calen is determined to keep her safe, no matter the cost. Maia finds herself drawn to this man who is deeply attracted to her.

Calen's Captive: A Singular Obsession Book 2 by Lucy Leroux is an enjoyable distraction. There is just the right mix of drama, danger and sex to keep the reader riveted until the end. Maia is a refreshing character in that she enjoys most of the changes that occur in her life rather than being petulant and ungrateful. Calen is the typical obsessive Alpha male, with just enough quirks to make him likeable. The other characters in the book give the promise of further tales of romance with just as much intrigue.
