I’m delighted to have been included in a collaborative series of clean romance novels debuting this spring. It’s called the “Ripple Effect Romance” series. The idea is that in each book, a character from the next makes an appearance. They’re tied together, but only loosely, like a ripple in a pond. Mine, IMMERSED, is #6 of six, and so is the final ripple. Ha! It just now occurred to me that my title is pretty appropriate. As a kid I was an obsessive rock-skipper, and as all rock skippers know, each skip creates a new series of ripples, but the final conclusion is always that the rock sinks. Hence, immersed.
Oh, forgive me.
Anyhow, the books are really shaping up nicely. All the other authors are also published and have great books. Each of us has a different style of writing, but you can count on all the books to be clean–and good love stories. And well edited! They’ll be available both in print version, as well as e-book version. The covers, which were designed by Rachael Anderson, are so cute. Love them. I’d post them all, but I don’t have them all individually right this second. (I’ll post them separately as they come out, for sure.) I wanted to give you some, though, so you’d get an idea of the theme. They’re cute, right? Rachael’s talented.
Here’s the timeline for the releases:
Home Matters, by Julie Ford: March 10
Silver Linings, by Kaylee Lenkersdorfer: March 24
Righting a Wrong, by Rachael Anderson: April 7
Lost & Found, by Karey White: April 21
Second Chances 101, by Donna K. Weaver: May 5
Immersed, by Jennifer Griffith : May 19
I don’t know the plots of everyone’s books yet, but here’s a little blurb of IMMERSED. (I need to polish this up. Taking suggestions.)
Lisette Pannebaker speaks five languages. Now she has a brilliant business plan—personal language immersion! Clients can hire her to shadow them and speak all day in any language they need to learn for business or travel—whatever.
But there’s a major hitch: she’s far too pretty. Clients with less than honorable intentions sign up just to have Lisette at their side.
Solution? A make-under. Way under.
It works like a charm. None of her male clients show her the least bit of interest. Until suddenly she wants one to: Erik.
Erik Gunnarsson. He’s charming, kind, smart—everything she’s looked for. Lisette is tempted to shed her disguise, even though he seems to have a secret, even though she swore she’d never date a client, even if it means jeopardizing her career.
I’m excited about how these are shaping up. It’s been fun. Can’t wait for everyone to get a chance to read them!
