Carmen DeSousa is a well established United States novelist, who is popular for writing paranormal, romance, and suspense novels. She has written several highly successful book series, such as the Creatus series, the What’s Luck Got To Do With It series, and the Southern Suspense novel series. Carmen is very much famous for her Southern Suspense series of novels in particular. Author Carmen hails from Daytona Beach, United States. She likes to consider herself more of a reader than a writer. Her interest in reading different genres of books began as soon as she grew old enough to hold books in her hands. Carmen says that she has always been very fascinated with written words in the novels. She seems to enjoy almost all kinds of stories, however, she tends to lean toward the magical realism and romantic suspense genres more often.

Author Carmen is so confident and proud about her written works that she can bet that no one will be able to give poor reviews for any of her novels. And as far as her reading interests her concerned, she doesn’t appreciate to go ahead with a book if she realizes it is not up to the standard beforehand. Carmen is of the opinion that life is so short that people cannot waste their precious time on bad books or stories. If, while reading a book Carmen reaches halfway through and senses that it is worthy of at least 3 stars, she stops reading. She doesn’t even care to review such books. Carmen knows that the other readers might also feel the same way for her novels. So, she always tries to make her books look interesting and have exciting stories so that no one feels bored or let down while reading them.

Author Carmen thinks of herself as a modern-day writer of fairy tales. Most of her stories overflow with mystery, romance, suspense, tragedy, and sometimes a little bit of the paranormal. She thinks that a fairy story can never be complete without a tragedy to begin with the plot. Each of Carmen’s books are sensual in many ways, but they are not erotic. They are gripping tales, but not have the graphic effects. Author Carmen hopes that her novels make the readers laugh, hope, cry, and love. In addition to her full length novels, author Carmen has penned several short stories that are available freely for anyone to read. She feels proud and blessed to have a successful path in the field of writing. Carmen wishes to continue writing many more interesting books in the years to come and keep entertaining her supporters and fans from across the globe.

The Southern Suspense series written by author Carmen DeSousa is comprised of 5 books in total, which were released between the years 2011 and 2013. Each of the five books is a sensual and a gripping story of romantic suspense. Carmen has set the stories in the South and has filled them with betrayal, obsession, and love. She has described the plots in such a unique style that they make the readers fall in love, and wonder if anyone around can be trusted. All the books consist of a different set of main characters. The series’ debut book is entitled ‘She Belongs to Me’. It was released in the year 2011.

At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that Jordan Monroe works as a police officer in Charlotte. He is used to the habit of having the control of things in his hand. He has been providing for his sisters and his mother since the death of his father. Jordan even hired his brothers-in-law for running his construction company. While on a routine business trip, Jordan comes across Jaynee by chance, who changes his life completely. Jaynee has kept a distance from men as she doesn’t trust them and has lived all her life in a great tragedy. But, when she comes in touch with Jordan, she finds it difficult to keep herself away from him. In their very first meeting, Jaynee gets swept off by Jordan Monroe. He makes her realize that there is happiness around and you just have to experience it. However, she wonders if she can remain happy for a long time and overcome her difficult past.

A period of five years passes by since Jordan and Jaynee first met and got married. One day, he sees her lying with a gun-shot wound on the back porch. She goes into coma and Jordan keeps wondering how did things take such a drastic turn? In order to sort things out and find answers to the numerous questions that keep popping in his mind, Jordan Monroe decides to look back into the past life of Jaynee. He wants to know whether it is because of him that his wife has met with such a fate or whether her past life has come to haunt both of them?
