Schemers is the first in a series of novels to come from the writing desk of award-winning and best-selling author of urban fiction Victor McGlothin. Schemers will propel readers into the scandalous, high-class lifestyles of a heartless crew of pretty-boy blackmailers, calling themselves the Billion Dollar Boy's Club. Strikingly attractive members of the boys club travel throughout major cities, like charismatic gypsies, setting up wealthy women who later discover their terrible mistake of giving into the handsome stranger's charms. After the married women's sexual indiscretions are videotaped by money-hungry boys' club operatives, the men to whom they have opened their hearts and legs promptly demand they share their bank accounts as well.
Christopher Denmark, leader of the nomadic drifters, has assembled a talented collection of well-trained men of pleasure, deceit and treachery. With several major scores to his credit, netting over sixty million tax-free dollars, Christopher has tasted the sweet joy of helping himself to other men's money by threatening to expose their wives' dirty deeds on the Internet. Once falling prey to cunning serial blackmailers, the obscenely wealthy feel the sting of a crafty con man's schemes to get rich quick.
Dr. Lena Harmon M.D. (OB/GYN), the lead female protagonist in Schemers, is a forty-two year old with a successful medical practice and a magazine publishing legend for a husband. Ledger Harmon is twelve years Lena's senior. He financed her medical school education with an understanding that they would become one of Dallas' power couples afterwards. Lena lived up to her part of the arrangement and subsequently learned to revere in her husband, the business minded and honest father figure she never had.
Lena becomes flattered when a younger, extremely handsome, pharmaceutical salesman named Aries Dupree calls on her office late one afternoon. She doesn't give into his charming personality or quick wit the first time he tosses pleasant glances her way. Eventually, an intriguing game of cat and mouse ensues when Aries begins to pop up at Lena's society functions, her local grocery store and dry cleaners. The snare is set when Lena's finds herself looking forward to their seemingly serendipitous encounters.
