I'm in San Francisco, supposedly on vacation but running all over madly. I'm patting myself on the back for making my flight, which has not been my strong suit this year. It's nice to be away from New York, even though I have a lot to do, like make a PowerPoint presentation for a speaking gig at the Princeton Club (!!) in November about pitching to food bloggers, and a little writing.
But I wanted to share some reviews, plus Kristina Wright told me Bedding Down got a 4-star review in Romantic Times! Can't wait to see it, especially because this book has the potential to be truly big, in part because Harpercollins/Avon Red can get the books into places like RT, and also because from what I sense, the erotic romance market is slightly different, and I would assume larger, than the market for general erotica. It's also available as an e-book, and it comes out December 2nd, and we'll be shooting a book trailer next month. Anyone interested in covering it (review, interview, etc.) for a publication, write to me at rachelravenous at gmail.com with your mailing address and publication details. Perfect for any Valentine's Day coverage.
Apparently, Harriet Klausner got her hands on a copy and concluded:
“One Night in Winter” by Kristina Wright. Susannah returns home to Minerva where her former lover Derrick reignites their heat
“Six Weeks at Sunrise Mountain, Colorado” by Gwen Masters. Stressed to the max, burned-out millionaire Fletcher flees for Sunrise Mountain to escape; there he rescues a frozen bruised Janine who in turn rescues his libido and heart.
“It’s Not the Weather” by Alison Tyler. Shelly assumes it is her fault that her boyfriend Roger is cold regardless of what she tries; so she gives up on him only to find warmth and passion with Jeremiah.
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Marilyn Jaye Lewis. Married couple Kaylie and Connor becomes snowbound, which gives them time to reenact some of their hottest moments.
“Northern Exposure” by Isabelle Gray. Their marriage is over yet neither Alana nor Gideon can move on as each wonders if they should give it one more try.
“Hidden Treasure” by Sophie Mouette. Brenda and Sean discover a treasure, but will they understand what the real treasure is.
“Sweet Season,” by Shanna Germain. After being away for awhile, Dulcie returns to her family’s maple syrup business only to find Travis is the real sweetener.
Although the plots are paper thin, the lead couples are developed enough to emit plenty of heat for fans to appreciate this wintry erotic septet.
