Dirty Games

Let the games begin.

Linton Williams is moving up in life, he’s secured a great job, he’s living his dream – until it all comes crashing down, courtesy of a brother who’s hooked on cocaine and owes money to dangerous people. When Linton’s offered enough cash to pay off his brother’s debts and send him to rehab, he can’t say no.

But there’s a catch. To save his brother from the hell of addiction, Linton makes a deal with the devil. His job? To teach film star Thorne Morrisey a public lesson in humility that might just destroy Thorne’s acting career for good.

When Thorne and Linton meet, sparks fly, and one kiss sets into motion a chain of events that could destroy them both. By the time Linton decides the price is too high, it’s too late. He’s fallen hard. And now he’s trapped between destroying his lover or his brother.

Game over

Post About Dirty Games

When I’m writing I end up doing a lot of research about very strange subjects. I joined a sniper forum when researching Breaking, a story about an assassin. I was thrown off the forum for asking questions they didn’t like about distance from target, type of rifle, scope etc. Maybe they didn’t believe I was a writer. Oh dear.

For Crossing the Line, I joined a Russian forum. I wasn’t thrown off that one.

For Dirty Games – I researched penguins! There are no actual penguins in the story but penguin habits are discussed. They are such fascinating animals.

I don’t know how I ever managed without Google BUT I’m very easily side tracked. Checking out one site, leads to reading another—oh look something about Argentine Lake Ducks (look them up – a penis that can be used as a lasso!)  Sometimes I have to switch off my wireless connection so that I actually do some work.

Dirty Games was one of the few books I’ve written where I had the title before I started. Quite often, I’ll write 100,000 words and still have no idea what to call the book. The way I usually begin is with a one line premise – for Dirty Games it was – how far would you go to help your brother? Then I choose the names for the main characters. I type Chapter One – and off I go – in a totally random direction.

I work on the first four or five chapters for quite a few weeks until they ‘feel’ right, when I know the book is going in the direction I hoped for. Somehow – 100,000ish – words later, it’s done and the idea for the next one is already percolating.

At the moment I’m 30,000 words into a story about an archangel’s assassin. Needless to say – I have no title. But the guys are called West and Tao!


Barbara Elsborg lives in Kent in the south of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

She writes stories about two guys, two guys and one woman, and one guy and one woman in most genres of romance—contemporary, paranormal, sci fi, suspense, urban fantasy. Her books feature bad boys and quirky heroines, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.

She loves hearing from readers and can be contacted at barbaraelsborg@gmail.com If you’d like to hear about future releases please ask to be put on her mailing list.
