The Characters Who Travel the Romantic Road - #4 Richard Delancy

 Romantic Road  has, not one, but three leading male characters. There is Igor Telchev, who is dead when the story begins, but whose spirit hovers over everything that follows, then there is the handsome and totally unpredictable Max Petersen. Is he what he appears to be? Simply a casual acquaintance offering assistance? And then there is Richard Delancy.
Allow me to introduce you to Richard Delancy:

Pierce Brosnan as Richard
Richard is Igor’s lawyer. A New Yorker born and bred, he has a national and international reputation and clientele. He is indisputably handsome. At forty he has just a touch of grey in his hair, enough to make him look distinguished. His expression is one of constant amusement, as if at some inner joke. He is tall, well built. He keeps in shape through regular trips to the gym.
He wears Brooks Brothers suits and carries a leather brief case. Money and image both matter to him.

He is in love with Lacy and has been since he first met her at her wedding to Igor. Now that Lacy is a widow, he is determined to have her and, to this end, he courts her in New York, and pursues her across Europe.
My latest romantic thriller, Romantic Road, is available for sale.

This romantic thriller is a mix of hair raising suspense, romance and a sprinkling of humor.

Escape Rating A - Marlene Harris,

"Like her other books, the story in this one operates on more than one level.  The suspense is edge of the seat, while Lacy's inner journey makes her a sympathetic and fascinating character. If you enjoy edge-of-your-seat suspense with a heart-pounding romance wrapped around a story that also makes you think, read Romantic Road, or any of Blair McDowell's marvelous stories.".....More

5 out of 5 Stars - Jack Magnus,
"Blair McDowell's romantic suspense novel, Romantic Road, is exciting and fast-paced. Lacy is a strong and appealing character whose fairy-tale marriage has abruptly ended, leaving unanswered questions and danger. The quest Igor sets for her leads her and the reader on a marvelous trip through Canada, Austria and Hungary, and the author's familiarity with each of these venues makes Lacy's adventures truly come alive.".....More

5 Stars out of 5 - Debbie Davenport, Librarian via NetGalley
"This is my kind of book: a fast-paced romantic suspense thriller with teeth! And the puzzles Igor left that Lacy must follow all over Europe... beautiful! The secrets will blow your socks off!"

5 out of 5 Stars - Celia Lewis, Pres., Romance Writers of America, Greater Vancouver Chapter
"A challenging love story, a deadly dangerous secret, a mysterious quest from New York through Europe, the latest story from Blair McDowell has it all!... I love romantic suspense, and this story was very fascinating to me, not least because of the unusual locales, adding an exotic flavour. I'm already wanting to read the next story by Blair McDowell!"
