Erotic Spy Thriller by JL McMillan

I've had the pleasure of communicating with this wonderful, new author and am pleased to recommend his novel to you this week.  It's currently available from Amazon with the Kindle Countdown Deal at only $0.99.  Pick up a copy before the 21st, when the price will go back to $2.99.

I've written a brief synopsis of the work below:

Traumatized and shattered, Adam lies awake, an untold pressure squeezing his lungs and wrenching his soul.  He spirals downward until his spirit is entirely broken and his will to live is brought into question…and then, he meets Jasmine.


Adam, an agent of France’s Intelligence Agency, is immediately smitten, taken in by the enticing woman, who works for the French embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. Their chance encounter is electric, jump-starting a fiery, dangerous affair, as well as breathing renewed vigor into their troubled lives. 

The couple’s unresolved issues of the past and societal mores demonize their love, but they will not be denied.  Adam is captive to Jasmine’s beauty, and she is drawn to his strengths.  Together they will challenge the odds and test the limits of desire.

Jean-Louis McMillan’s Desire and Prejudice is much more than an erotic love story.  Set against the backdrop of a cultural divide, violence, and a region, ready to explode, this spy thriller has all the hallmarks of a great tale.

***Author’s Note: This is a contemporary love story with sexual content and strong language. Recommended reading age: 18+

Amazon $0.99 Limited Time

Amazon 5 Star Review by Kathy
"After reading “Desire & Prejudice” I couldn’t believe the book was written by a first-time author. It is fast-paced and compelling, and very believable. I almost wonder if the book is a little bit autobiographical? If there is just one problem, is that it’s too short and ended kind of abruptly. I do look forward to reading more from Jean-Louis McMillan, and I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read."

Another Amazon 5 Star Review by talpaz
"There were parts of “Desire & Prejudice” that were so heartbreaking and sad, and then parts that were steamy and full of life! Also, there are some moments of deeper meaning that made me feel so reflective. Good job, Jean-Louis McMillan. You had me feeling the full range of emotions with your book."
