Japanese American writer, Sylvia June Day was born on March 11, 1973. Day writes romance novels, speculative/paranormal fiction, historical fiction, and futuristic fiction (under the pseudonym Livia Dare.) S. J. Day is the pseudonym for her non-romance genre works.
Day is a #1 bestseller in 28 countries. She is the co-founder of “Passionate Ink”, a special interest chapter of Romance Writers of America, and served on the Board of Directors from 2009-2013 as well as became the 22nd President of the RWA. For the last three years, Day’s novels have taken spots among the top bestselling books on global year-end sales round ups, making her one the most widely read authors in the world today.
In addition to her novels, Day has written numerous novellas and short stories for both print and digital-first release. Her work has been called an “exhilarating adventure”, by Publishers Weekly and “wickedly entertaining”, by Booklist. She’s been honored with the RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice award, the National Reader’s Choice Award, and multiple nominations for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA Award of Excellence.
Born in Los Angeles, she grew up in Orange County and later lived in Monterey and Oceanside. Day now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, but occasionally enjoys her pied-a`-terre on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York. She considers the two vibrant, energetic, and never-dark cities perfect for a writer whose working hours are as unpredictable as her characters.
This is the story about Simon who was introduced in Passion for the Game. Simon was going to quit his job at being a spy and go to Spain, however his boss tells him that he is needed regardless of what Simon wants. After his lost job of escorting Lysette out, even though prior, he has no attraction towards her even though she offered. He finds her at the ball just as Lynette sees him and is bold about her attraction towards him. Lynette is grieving for her identical twin whom she thought died. She finds out thru Simon that her sister is alive. Simon tries to find out what's going on with lysette and due to her past history to why she turned out to be an ***assin. I thought it was ok, was expecting more out of Simon rather than focusing on other plots. I was disappointed that there weren't much scenes with Simon and lynette. There's no reason behind why Lynette loves him. The writer should have developed theire relationshp further before she fell in love.
