Psyche Nomination - ADRIENNE

2009 Romance Studio Psyche Nominee!!

ADRIENNE by D. Renee Bagby

He crossed dimensions to claim her as his queen—but her reign may destroy his world.

Adrienne Backett wants two simple little things this spring break: rest and relaxation. After nearly four years of slaving away for her college education, she deserves a holiday. What she gets is pulled into another dimension by a man who claims she’s his rightful queen.

Malik, King of Ulan, has until his birthday to find his bride or he must forfeit his throne. When a spell reveals her location, he will do anything, even cross dimensions, to claim her as his own.

As if fending off a lusty king isn’t enough of a headache, Adrienne finds herself a pawn in a rival monarch’s plot to bring Malik’s world to its knees. But is the real danger being stuck in the middle of a power struggle between rival kingdoms? Or the damage Malik could do to her heart?

Warning: This title contains adult language (cursing), talking animals, violence, and scenes of near rape.

The tree has been trimmed (while it was snowing--win!) and my December blog at Beyond the Veil is live. All that's left is to wish one and all a very happy holiday. May the big day--whichever one you celebrate--be spent with your loved ones doing that which brings you joy and warms your heart for the months ahead.

The Journey and Other Things

Thursday, December 10, 2009
Ok, I've scaled back a little on the writing and focused on promo for Kismet. Something tells me I'm not going to be able to do this for my June release of Assassin's Honor. I think 2010 is about to become a whirlwind of releases and writing. So I've been enjoying the slower pace of the holiday season, which means checking out YouTube and other places for news on the romance and holiday fronts.

Speaking of Kismet, it was one of the Berkley books featured over at Dear Author yesterday. My wonderful editor, Cindy Hwang, called it an "...unusual–and unusually wonderful–historical romance..."


I've also been planning blog tour. I believe I've definitely gone insane. When I looked at the schedule last night, I realized that I have to WRITE all these posts! *sigh* This is what writers have to do in addition to writing their books. They promo the books. As much as I love it, promo takes so much time, and with so much at stake it means I need to work even harder.

I'll be posting to different blogs over the next month and a half, so try to catch me when you can. There will be the occasional book given away!
