The winner of yesterday’s giveaway – a copy of Fire Season – is… Anne!
Today, another award winning book is coming your way. A Lories Best Published contest finalist and 2011 EPIC Award finalist, Ride the Lightning is probably my most emotional book to date. My editor called it a Joey W. Hill type emotional rollercoaster ride. I thought that was an amazing compliment since I’m a big Joey Hill fan.
I think every author has characters and stories that they feel especially close to. Emily Carrington is one of those characters for me. I felt her heartache very acutely as I wrote her story. Her sense of being alone in the world, rejected, unloved, mistreated and used by the very people who should have loved and cherished her…her pain was especially sharp for me. As I wrote her, I often wished for the finely etched prose of Josh Lanyon who can draw a character with words in such a way that you feel their every wince and flinch as if it were your own. I think a little of my wishful thinking paid off because fans seem to feel Emily’s pain and eventual joy just as much as I do.
M/F, dragons, BDSM, Erotic Paranormal Romance
Red dragon Emily Carrington found her mate in black dragon Vahid Delrey, but misunderstandings, painful secrets, and distrust keep them apart. Emily thinks Vahid doesn’t want her. Vahid thinks Emily is a stuck up snob who could never truly love him. Both dragons hide crippling secrets from their pasts as their pain at being apart escalates. Emily falls for the strong, sexy black dragon and hides her need of him behind an icy facade. Vahid longs for Emily to need him but can’t bring himself to mate with such a cold woman. When Emily’s secret pain fetish threatens her life, Vahid must decide whether to save her or let her self-destructive ways rid him of the mate he never thought he’d love.
Warning this book contains one asshole hero, one cold as ice heroine, mating in shifted form in a haystack, a suicide attempt, spanking, anal play, BDSM and it’s all needed to create a very happy ending.
