Raine's Secret Garden

LET’S PRETEND!

************
I’m not sure I’m cut out for self-pubbing. So far, it seems like things go wrong at just the right times! First the computer was running at a snail’s pace. Then Amazon decided to stall out on posting it. And finally, the electricity went off today. Big boom outside–power gone.
But I promised myself I’d have this sucker ready for release on September 20th.
And dammit–it’s released!

LET’S PRETEND

HE WANTS TO BELIEVE SHE’S TELLING THE TRUTH.
SHE WANTS TO BELIEVE THEIR GAME IS A LIE.
AFTER ALL, A LITTLE FLIRTING NEVER HURT ANYBODY.
UNTIL NOW.

When her best friend’s boy-toy offers to help Veronica snare the man she wants, she doesn’t take it seriously. But the games begin to work, and every day in Brant’s company is a sexy new lesson. It’s the most fun she’s ever had—until the fantasy becomes too real, and unexpectedly dangerous.

Brant is fine with pretending to be Veronica’s lover—if it gets him the priceless antiques his employers think she’s stolen. Believing the worst about people has always worked for him. And if teaching sweet little Ronnie the neglected art of subtle seduction gets him what he wants, he’s all in. And maybe one deadly step beyond

Update

*****
I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted! Part of the lull was due to website updating (that’s my story, I’m sticking to it). And although I’ve been keeping up on the Chicas site (so far), I’ll definitely be playing catch-up here, with a little over a week before the new release is out.

As promised, I’ve posted an additional excerpt from “Lucidity” HERE, and it’s the beginning of one of my favorite parts of the book. :yes:
I also finally decided that yes, I am putting together a trailer. Not sure when I’ll finish, and it’ll probably be short and simple…but the work is in progress.

Also, may I express my heartfelt gratitude to two sites that were kind enough to give “Lucidity” advance reviews.
POSITIVE advance reviews. Yay!! :bounce:
From Sizzling Hot Book Reviews: “With a fast paced plot and action galore, Lucidity will most likely knock your socks off! It’s a story told in a way that is believable, but still contained plenty of paranormal aspects that most will enjoy.”

From The Library Journal Reviews: “Good pacing, fun characters, and ‘steam up your glasses’ sex will keep readers intrigued.”

Many thanks to both for reading! :wave:

And last, but certainly not least…
Although Season 4 was far from being my favorite…there’s less than one month remaining before the beginning of True Blood, Season 5!! I am SO ready!

And The Hits Just Keep On Comin’

*****
I love having good news to deliver. :D

In addition the previously-mentioned “Hunter Of The Heart” below (which, btw, hit three of Samhain’s bestseller lists, woot!), I’ve got two more blog buddies with kick-ass new releases to savor.


Bernard Lee DeLeo’s latest, “Cold Blooded”, will be available from Wild Child Publishing on November 22. That is, barring famine, pestilence, or the apocalypse, it should definitely be released, lol. I read much of the original version of this story, and it was non-stop excitement, with a very non-traditional hero and romance (my favorite kinds).


And Paperback Writer has released another of her fabulous Kyndred novels, this one called “Nightshine”. I’ve already ordered mine, and will be saving it for a long, cold weekend. :)
You can’t go wrong reading Lynn Viehl, one of the best in the business, and I’m sure this one will be no exception.

Happy reading!
