Love in the Shadows is the first book in a new trilogy. Quintin Pearson, an American living in London, has spent the last two years working as a magazine staff writer and nursing a broken heart. Craving a change in his quiet life, Quintin accepts an invitation to an exclusive party hosted by Regina Bremington, the U.S. ambassador’s glamorous wife. At the party, terror takes over when the electricity suddenly goes out and the ambassador is assassinated. In the safety of a dark bedroom, Quintin meets a mysterious stranger named Luca, an Italian spy. Even though the two men can’t see each other, a spark is ignited that soon becomes a mutual lust. Within days, Luca arranges for them to meet again at a remote seaside town in Belgium. There, Luca confesses his true identity and convinces Quintin they must team up to bring the ambassador’s killer to justice. Look for The Beautiful Lie and The Edge of Desire soon!

"A titillating tale, Love In The Shadows is a story that certainly won't disappoint. Caught up in a web of intrigue and mystery, we're immersed in Quintin's tumultuous life from the get-go. It's refreshing to see the camaraderie that exists between all of the characters as they try to co-exist in such a chaotic world. I definitely look forward to more of Dylan's work."

"I enjoyed Love in the Shadows. The tone of the story fit the spy genre perfectly, and I could picture the lonely American in London very well. The country-hop over to Belgium was a lovely addition...I hope there will be more in this series."
