Since my hero in BEYOND DANGER, Beau Reese, is a mega rich playboy, a once-famous race car driver, I thought it might be fun to write about a mega-wealthy party I got invited to a few years back. Well, more than a few, considering it was a millennium party celebrating the thousand year change in our calendar.
My husband and I wanted to do something really special for that night so I had been looking at different trips, hotels, and cruises. We wanted to do something we would never forget.
Fortunately, about that time, I ran into an author friend I hadn’t seen in a while. When I told her I was on a quest to find something memorable to do for the millennium, she invited me to a weekend party at her parents’ home in Aspen, one of several they owned.
I knew they were worth billions of dollars, had actually been to their incredible New York apartment, so I excitedly accepted.
It was a magical weekend, with everything paid for by the party givers except our room–which cost a small fortune but was worth it! The party was poolside, held around an indoor swimming pool since there was snow on the ground outside.
My author friend was a wonderful hostess, the band was fabulous, the decorations spectacular, and the food amazing. Guests flew in on their private jets and came to the event in gorgeous designer clothes.
For an author, it was more than just fun–it was a glimpse into a world I had never seen.
It’s the world Beau Reese lives in, or at least he has access. He’s a little more down to earth than the guests at the party, but he’s classy and gorgeous and he drives a Lamborghini. Hey, how much better does it get?
The bad news is, Beau is wanted for murder.
The good news is, Lady detective, Cassidy Jones, is determined to prove his innocence.
I hope you enjoy BEYOND DANGER and that you’ll watch for BEYOND CONTROL, Josh Cain’s story, out in June. Till next time, all best wishes and happy reading, Kat
