Author Charles D. Martin returns with second book in ‘Provocateur’ series this August
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – Rich and powerful men, beware – the sexy heroine who notoriously preyed on alpha males in writer Charles D. Martin’s “Provocateur” is back and more daring than ever in his newest release, “Nadia’s Obsession” (Aug. 27, 2013, Chaney-Hall Publishing).
Following Martin’s enthralling debut novel, “Nadia’s Obsession” marks the return of Nadia Borodina, a cleverly seductive leading lady who uses her superior feline assets to succeed with alpha males and get exactly what she wants. Nadia grew up in a Russian orphanage and made her way to America as a mail-order bride. After meeting an ex-CIA agent, Nadia’s life changes forever as she is propelled into the high life with powerful men. In Martin’s second book, the battle of the sexes continues between Nadia and a wealthy Russian oligarch.
“Martin has crafted another engrossing tale of seduction, cyber mischief and international intrigue, featuring Nadia Borodina of ‘Provocateur’ fame, a woman other women want to be, and all men want to have, but only the reader truly wins,” says David Ward, Academy Award-winning screenwriter for “The Sting” and nominee for “Sleepless in Seattle.”
In “Nadia’s Obsession,” Martin once again explores the power that audacious women hold over men. The book is brimming with intrigue, sexual tension and brilliant dialogue.
Martin grew up in a small Ohio town and later established a pair of successful investment firms. He now runs a hedge fund, Mont Pelerin Capital LLC, and serves on investment boards for prominent universities. Martin and his wife live in southern California.
In her “assignments” Nadia must get the best of powerful men that are at the top of the male order.
Nadia, born an orphan, rises out of a life of poverty and despair, where she had no experience with affection, to face her struggles and take on the challenges of her “profession.” She is a complex, enigmatic woman of superior intelligence who must “win” through her finesse and feminine prowess.
