Author Biography

Charles Martin is the national award winning author of the novel, Provocateur.

In this book, Nadia’s Obsession, and its predecessor, the author writes about strong, audacious women and their encounters with alpha males.

Mr. Martin grew up in a small Ohio town, in a family of modest means. By working two jobs, he was able to put himself through college. He has been fortunate to enjoy a great deal of success in life. He had a distinguished career in venture capital and private equity, founding two highly successful investment firms that he managed during the decades of the 1980s and 1990s.

Currently he runs a hedge fund, Mont Pelerin Capital, LLC, and serves on the investment committees of prominent universities. Mr. Martin has extensive background in finance and technology, and has traveled to the exotic locations featured in the novel. However, the novel itself is more about the intrigue in the story and the alpha female protagonist that takes on dominant males and conquers them.

Mr. Martin lives, with his wife Twyla, in a coastal town south of Los Angeles, California.

Reviewed by Michelle Mollohan for Readers' Favorite

Nadia's Obsession by Charles D. Martin is number two in the saga of Nadia. Orphaned and forced to grow up in deplorable conditions in a Russian orphanage, she escapes to the United States as a mail-order bride. She is both intellectually unrivaled as well as exquisitely beautiful. Nadia learns that her unique skill set gives her an advantage over the opposite sex. Under the employment of Olga, an ex-CIA operative, Nadia uses her talents to manipulate powerful men. She frequently finds herself in harm's way and must outwit those who seek vengeance. Throughout Nadia's Obsession, you follow Nadia as she struggle to come to terms with her yearning for love and emotional attachments, her budding friendship with Alexandria, and her struggle to balance her desires to remain strong and independent with her sexual yearnings.

Nadia's Obsession is a non-stop page turner! Once I read the first page, I was hopelessly entranced. Charles D. Martin has artfully crafted a captivating set of women in this book. Mr. Martin blends the perfect mix of intrigue, espionage, drama, desire and heartache to keep you yearning for more. Charles D. Martin obviously spent a great deal of time and energy researching Russian culture and exotic locations to ensure accuracy in his work. I could envision every locale he described as if I were seeing it for myself. I can't wait to read Provocateur, the first book about Nadia's adventures. I anxiously await the possibility of future novels featuring Nadia and her cohorts.
