Traffick Report [2]

Contemporary passion in the tradition of Julie James, Traffick Report draws romance from genuine workplace personalities and conflicts.

Bereft by the loss of her father, hometown news anchor Bailey Barber still finds the strength to drive ratings: she’s the girl next door and viewers count her as one of their own. Covering the story of a young woman who has been trafficked as a sex worker, she finds an awkward kinship. Bailey discovers a new man and a new dimension to romantic experience. Yet her journalistic drive conflicts with his defense of his client. He has the insight and passion to capture her heart, but can their growing love survive their professional conflicts?

About the Author

H. Laurence Lareau fell in love with romances the first time Pride and Prejudice came home from the library with him. Since that high school summer, he has earned an English degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, worked as a television and print journalist, built a career in law, and has remained a Jane Austen junkie through it all.

The Newsroom Romance series draws from his careers, his voracious reading, and his curiosity about the tensions between real life and real love.

Real life now is dramatically different from the real life of Austen’s times—privileged women no longer choose between eligible members of the landed gentry, nor are they imperiled by the sexist mysteries of the entailed fee simple estate in land.

Modern women with the privileges of education rather than birth now embark upon careers that can satisfy many personal and material dreams. Seemingly inevitably, though, careers fall short of the promise that they’ll fulfill women as people.

Strong, modern women have defined Lareau’s professional and personal lives, and strong women fully occupy center stage in their own newsroom romance stories. Their high-profile journalism and legal careers matter deeply to them and to the people they serve.

Then love comes walking in. These book boyfriends don’t have kilts or billions or pirate ships, though. Their career goals meet and often clash with their romantic counterparts, requiring both the men and women to make hard choices about what happily ever after should look like and how to achieve it.

When he isn’t writing, practicing law, or raising children, he’s working on martial arts and music.
