DESIREE’S REVENGE: A Romance by K.C. Carson
riveting tale of revenge, survival and redemption, wrapped around an unlikely
love story and set against an urban backdrop corrupted by violence against
women and racism.
Following a racially motivated rape by three Ku Klux
Klansmen, 12-year-old Desiree Devine vows revenge. After eight years of
training, now a strikingly beautiful assassin, she accomplishes her mission.
Her campaign continues with solitary walks through dark
city streets, hoping to be assaulted by men with bad intentions. Those
entrapped by her spider’s web pay dearly for their efforts.
Surrounded by three white men one night, she’s rescued by
Tony Marino, an Italian-American passerby. A stormy up-and-down relationship
ensues. Ultimately, as her rage matures into purposeful action, and as he
begins to see the world through her eyes, they become a team.
Along the way, they encounter serial killers, wife-beaters,
actual and would-be rapists, gangsters, crooked cops, a kidnapper and a
pedophile priest, as well as numerous women in desperate need of their help.
Beneath all the action, though, is the blossoming of a most unusual love story.
