Mandy's News & Notes
In a time of desperation, Lorena Halliday's father sells her into service to wealthy Lord Fairfield. After years of servitude and unwanted sexual advances, Lorena finds the courage to run away, only to be accosted by a man with a knife.
Standing on the roof of his home, Demetri witnesses the attack and goes to the young woman's rescue. After dispatching her assailant, Demetri takes the unconscious woman to an inn and procures a room for her. After paying for a week in advance, he carries her up the stairs and tucks into bed. She is young and beautiful and her blood calls to him like no other.
Needing to see her again, Demetri returns to the inn and offers the lovely redhead a position in his home as his housekeeper. Desperate and with nowhere else to go, Lorena accepts. She soon discovers that her mysterious benefactor hides many secrets. Nevertheless, Lorena finds herself falling in love with a man who lives In the Dark of the Night.
THE LATEST NEWS
I sent the manuscript for In the Dark of the Night to my publisher on the 4th. With luck, it will be out by mid-February. YAY! I really love this story, this hero. So does my critique group. There's something about Demetri....sigh.
Brenda said: "What a fantastic story! So much action, tension, drama and dilemma that I was on the edge of my seat the whole time ters. I think you'll get a great response on this book. Hope you sell millions!!"
Carol, another member, said: "I am loving this book, as I've mentioned before. The plotting is terrific, and there is so much tension and suspense! While we know that Demetri and Lorena will end up together at the end, there is no way to guess how they will get there. That keeps me turning the pages!"
My sequel to Enchant the Night is at a stand still. Always seems to happen about the half-way point.
Looking forward to the publication of Night's Illusion, coming August 24th. The back cover copy reads as follows:
"Giovanni Lanzoni may just be the world's oldest male virgin. Or at least, the oldest male virgin vampire. Giovanni has clung to the vows he made a thousand years ago as a mortal priest—yet he is no longer either of those things. Others of his kind have settled down since claiming immortality, finding love, even raising children. Sensing his loneliness, Mara, Queen of the Vampires, eagerly sets out to find Giovanni the perfect mate. But only one woman, met by chance on a dark night, truly tempts him . . .
Cassie Douglas has never met a man she trusts as much as Giovanni. Yet the shocking truth he reveals makes her question their deep connection. There are other urgent obstacles too. Giovanni's sire, an ancient, dangerously powerful vampire, is awakening after centuries of slumber, with vengeance on his mind. And in the battle unfolding around them, everything is at risk—their lives, their loved ones, and a passionate eternity together . . ."
MASQUERADE, THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT, JESSIE'S GIRL, and SANDY'S ANGEL are available now for the amazingly low price of only 99 cents each.
THE LATEST BAKER NEWS ~
So, I'm writing on my Western again. My Muse took a rather long vacation, but she's back now. Hopefully, she'll hang around until the book is done. You can get a look at it at www.madelinebaker.net If you do, let me know what you think.
FIND THE LIGHTNING, a short time travel book, is available now. It's another Relampago story. It was fun to be back in the Old West, if only for a little while. You can get a peek at it on the In the Works page and see the cover on the Baker Books page. Happy to say, it's selling pretty well.
All of my reverted Baker books are now available on Amazon.
I have bookmarks for TWILIGHT DESIRES, NIGHT'S SURRENDER, BEAUTY'S BEAST, NIGHT'S PROMISE, AS TWILIGHT FALLS and NIGHT'S MISTRESS, as well as for many of my older books, both for Baker and Ashley.
