Behind the Book : Blood Money by Tee O’Fallon



Blood Money is the sequel to Burnout, my very first published novel—an exciting moment, to be sure! Ironically, Burnout was initially a stand-alone book with no series in mind. But when a multi-book contract came a calling I adapted, and with the quick stroke of a pen a contract was signed and the NYPD Blue & Gold Series was born. Along with the urgent need for new heroes and heroines!

Cassie Yates, the heroine of Burnout, has an older brother, Gray, who is an NYPD detective. Naturally, Gray came to mind as the hero of Blood Money. He’s a handsome, hunky Alpha male who doesn’t love easily but when he does, he’s all in and not even the Pyramid—an international organization of assassins—will stand between him and the woman he’s falling in love with. Which brings me to the heroine of Blood Money—Alex Romano.

Making every novel in a series substantially different from the others takes imagination and extra effort, but it’s well worth it. I mean, who doesn’t get bored reading a series in which the heroes and heroines are all pretty much cut from the same cookie cutter? So in creating Alex, I strived to make her very different from Cassie. Alex isn’t a cop and she doesn’t carry a badge or a gun, yet she is intellectually strong and every bit as ass-kicking in her own way—a total match for Gray.

I sincerely hope you like Blood Money and for those who keep asking… Yes, Detective Dominick Carew is the hero of Book 3, due for release later this year. So stay tuned!



About Blood Money:

In the safety of his arms lies passion…and danger

NYPD Detective Gray Yates has major trust issues. Protecting a serenely beautiful woman hiding enough secrets to take down an entire city wasn’t something he bargained for. She’s a loving single mother, hot as hell, and protecting her will test every ounce of his resolve.

Alex Romano is being blackmailed by the Pyramid—an elusive international organization of assassins every cop in the world is after. When Alex tries severing ties with them they refuse to let her go. The darkly dangerous detective she’s irresistibly drawn to is her only hope of staying out of jail. He just might be her savior…or her downfall.

Despite efforts to maintain his professionalism, Gray can’t deny the fiery passion Alex ignites in him. In an explosive confrontation, Alex’s lies are revealed and Gray is faced with the most important decision of his life: trust the woman he’s falling in love with, or arrest her.
