While I prepare for the launch of Seduced by Power, the final book in my bestselling new adult paranormal romance series (You can get Seduced by Innocence and Seduced by Pain on Amazon now by clicking on the covers to the right!), I’m also gearing up for the launch of a whole new series that I’m co-writing with the Sexy Russian Prince, AKA, my husband, Dmytry Karpov. (He also did the amazing cover you see here << Isn’t it gorgeous??)
This is the first contemporary non-magical series I’ve ever written, and it starts with Kiss Me in Paris. Now, it takes place in Paris, so maybe I’m lying when I say there’s no magic in it. After all, what could possibly be MORE magical than falling in love in Paris? Not much, if you ask me.
I want to launch this book in a BIG way. It’ll be a 6 part new adult romance series following the Deveaux sisters as they each travel the world and find love (and trouble) in all the right places, and there will be a spin-off series following the adventures of their cousin, Daring Deveaux, as she travels the world documenting alleged supernatural experiences with a hot British ghost hunter. (Wanderlust, the first in that series, will be out later this spring.)
Book 1, Kiss Me in Paris, is Winter Deveaux’s story as she sets her sights on falling in love in Paris so she can write the romance novel her heart is desperate to publish. But will a cowboy with a southern drawl sweep her away from the smooth talking men trying to seduce her? (17+ for sexually explicit content)
To launch this in the strongest way possible without delaying the launch to get reviews and such, we need your help. We need reviews, and people willing to read an ARC before the final proof is done to get reviews ready for the launch and help us spread the word.
To this end, I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’m offering a FREE ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) to EVERYONE who signs up this month. EVERYONE. You can choose between a mobi (for Kindle) or epub (for Nook or Kobo). All we ask is that you leave an honest review on Amazon and B&N as soon as you’re able in exchange for the free copy. (And if you have a blog that you’d like to post on in addition to Amazon and B&N, we’d LOVE that, too!) This is going to be an honor system. I have no way of tracking how many of you review or don’t review, but I trust that unless you hate the book and simply can’t finish it, you’ll review it if at all able.
Maybe we’re shooting ourselves in the foot, giving out all these free copies instead of selling them at launch time. But you guys have been so amazing, I’m okay losing some sales to entice you to review early! Plus, I’m hoping you fall in love with this series and feel inclined to share the news with every literate being you know when it launches.
If you sign up, you’ll get two versions of the book. The first version will be just before launch, as we’re doing the final edit and proofing. This version will likely have typos and mistakes. If you read it fast enough and want to be a mini-beta reader and give feedback, we’d love to hear what you think! We just ask that you don’t judge us publicly for mistakes in this version! The second version we send out will be proofed, though we can’t promise it will be perfect. (Are any books ever truly perfect?) But it should be clean.
You can read both, or either one, whichever you prefer. Anyone who reads the early version and gives us feedback quickly will be thanked by name in the acknowledgements.
Oh, and while everyone will get a free ARC, we’ll also be giving 5 lucky people postcards signed by myself and Dmytry as an extra perk!
And you know me, when the book launches, there will be more giveaways!
