June is National Crime Reading Month. What better time to introduce my Femme Fatale Series.
What I like about the Femme Fatale character is her independence, her intelligence, her strength, her high sense of self-esteem and her belief that she can have whatever she sets her heart on.
The Femme Fatal is an extremely gorgeous woman who knows how to use her sexuality as a weapon to get what she wants from the men in her life, sometimes leading them into very dangerous and murderous situations.
The male protagonist (often a detective on her trail) who inevitably falls for her, is immediately in trouble. At best, he will suffer from a heartbreak, but more usually, she will convince him to commit crimes in exchange for the promise of having her.
