Do all romance books have to end in a committed relationship?
Do all romance books have to end in a committed relationship, such as marriage or living together or going steady? Not when it's romantic suspense, according to Yvonne Walus, whose internationall thriller, OPERATION GENOCIDE was released by Stairway Press earlier this week.
An inhuman agenda…In 1982, Annette Pretorius lives a life of privilege afforded to those of European descent in South Africa, but when her husband is murdered, she discovers a shattering secret: he’d been commissioned by the whites-only South African government to develop a lethal virus aimed at controlling the growth of the black population–already oppressed under the cruel system of apartheid.
A clandestine organization…The murder came with a warning to Annette from a secretive organization: keep our secrets or you too will die. Captain Trevor Watson, Annette’s former boyfriend, is appointed to lead the investigation. Watson’s loyalty is tested as the evidence stacks against his high school sweetheart.
And the killing isn’t over yet…When the investigation points in a terrifying direction, Annette and Watson face a wrenching choice: protect those they love or sacrifice all to save innocents from racial extermination.
