Blurb : 

Katherine ("Kat") thought she had the perfect marriage to International Lawyer Steven Flynn. Until he tried to kill her.

Katherine was the perfect obedient wife. She would do anything for her husband. That is, until she discovers he's the ring leader of a human trafficking organization. The action is fast and furious, the dialogue smart and the sex scenes hot. Meet Katherine in Curiosity Killed The Kat as she goes farther and farther down the rabbit hole of political intrigue, sex, and revenge. Will she let herself be saved by love or will curiosity and a thirst for killer justice kill the Kat?

About the Author:

Elizabeth wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills and relationship techniques have helped hundreds of others find their mojo. After earning a master's degree in secondary education from UNC, she worked abroad teaching English, bar-tended at late night clubs in Chicago, and continues various philanthropy projects that focus on empowering women. But she always returned to writing.

Though she'll forever be a free-spirit at heart, she now lives in Los Angeles with her two dogs. If she's not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rock concerts.

Praise for Curiosity Killed the Kat:

"A 5 star debut for sure!!! This book had ALL the elements I love; a kick-ass detailed story, a wealthy sexy man and strong female lead and my favorite; lots of hot, sweaty body tangling going on! Katherine and Steven's relationship is electric. The plot intense. The dialogue superb. Not wanting to give too much away, this was a fantastic read. The author kept me guessing until the end of the book. Once you start reading this book, it is very hard to put down. Ms. Nelson thank you for the entertainment!!!"- Sophia Schippers, Reviewer

"You can't put this one down ! This was my first Elizabeth Nelson book, and it was a lot of fun. It's suspenseful, action-packed and keeps you guessing throughout the book. There's never a dull moment. This book is one you will want to read in one sitting because you can't wait to see what happens next. I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens with Katherine and I can't wait to read the next in the series."-Lori S., Reviewer

"I loved this book.... It had me chewing nails , I can't wait to read the next book ... Keep up the writing!"-Sissy, Reviewer

"I found myself speed reading I was so anxious for the outcome! Imagine your perfect life & marriage over in one stunning moment of realism. Human trafficing; a compelling story that does not read like fiction but keeps hold of your attention and eager for the next book in the series."- Luvs2read, Reviewer

" I randomly picked this book on my wife's Kindle for a couple of hours of relaxing reading and must say I am impressed with the story line of this book. The book grabbed me almost immediately from the start, always wanting me to find out more. This is really a great book that really riveted my imagination."- Simon, Reviewer

"This book is fantastic, and it is a quality read. It really looks at the deception that can happen between a man and wife. This is an exciting book, and I think it empowers women. The wife, Kat, is someone many people will understand. I absolutely love the last line of the book: "To get the revenge I deserved all I had to do was live." Kat is dignity, grace, and strength - personified."- Florence Mims, Reviewer

"This was a very explosive book. I couldn't put it down. I found it refreshing and was immediately drawn in from the beginning. There was passion, action, suspense, and I couldn't get through the pages fast enough. I can' t wait to find out how it ends."-Meggin, Reviewer

Book Review:

I have worked in the field of social services and this book intrigued me for that reason, as well as the fact that it is a well written and interesting story.  In this story, Kat is a subjugated and abused wife, although she initially would not describe herself that way.  This psychological look was fascinating as I’ve seen this same thing played out in the real world.

Additionally the storyline is fascinating.  I love the intrigue and double life of the characters.  I cannot imagine finding out something like this about someone you loved and lived with for years.  Of course I also can’t imagine living like Kat does, but the author does such a great job of painting a picture with her writing that I could literally see myself in Kat’s shoes.  And given strong-willed and independent I am, that’s high praise indeed.

I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.  Come back tomorrow for an interview with the author and a giveaway offer.
