Book Description From the Publisher



Mercy Reynolds is a reporter in the San Francisco Bay area, but she’s also more—and less—than human. Half woman, half air dragon, she’s a “draman”—unable to shift shape but still able to unleash fiery energy. Now something will put her powers to the test.Mercy’s friend Rainey has enlisted her help to solve her sister’s murder. Then a horrible accident claims Rainey’s life, leaving Mercy only five days to find the killer: If Mercy fails, according to dragon law, Rainey’s soul will be doomed to roam the earth for eternity. But how can Mercy help when she herself is a target? With nowhere else to turn, she must join forces with a sexy stranger—the mysterious man they call “Muerte,” or death itself, who’s as irresistible as he is treacherous. But can even Death keep Mercy alive for long enough to find her answers?

ROYAL WEDDINGS: A New E-Anthology from Stephanie Laurens, Gaelen Foley and Loretta Chase

You are cordially invited
To help celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton

A New E-Anthology from Stephanie Laurens, Gaelen Foley and Loretta Chase

NEW YORK, NY, April 5, 2011 -- Avon Impulse presents a special, commemorative anthology of short fiction written by New York Times bestselling romance authors, on sale today in anticipation of the impending royal nuptials!  ROYAL WEDDINGS (Avon Impulse; on sale 4/5; e-ISBN 9780062100016; $1.99), by Stephanie Laurens, Gaelen Foley and Loretta Chase. This collection is the second original release from Avon’s new digital imprint. 

The world has long been fascinated with the majesty and romance of royal weddings, even in Regency and Victorian England.  Three never-before-released short stories by bestsellers Laurens, Chase, and Foley, capture the world’s love affair with Will and Kate’s real life fairy tale romance, and celebrate our enduring romance with British royalty.

Author Gaelen Foley explains the enduring attraction Americans feel for these British icons, saying, “Ultimately, how we feel about the royals tells us a great deal more about ourselves than it tells us about them. They are mirrors for our best imagined selves or chaotic reflections of our worst days. We all grew up with fairytales. We just apply their lessons differently. The royals know that they are princes and princess: They expect to have adventures, slay dragons, and do great deeds. The only question is…why don’t we?”

Between the pages of a book, we can be vicariously noble, and ROYAL WEDDINGS is a personal invitation to imagine living and loving on a majestic scale.

Each novella in the anthology features the romance of a fictional couple told against the backdrop of a real life royal wedding event, including the marriages of Princess Charlotte and Queen Victoria:

·        Stephanie Laurens' The Wedding Planner: Lady Margaret is proud to plan the Ton's most important nuptials—including that of a prince. But it's Lady Margaret who falls in love . . . with dashing Gaston Devilliers!

·        Gaelen Foley's Ever After: How scandalous! Eleanor Monford, Countess of Archer, is in love with her own husband. And as Princess Charlotte of England weds Prince Leopold, Eleanor's "secret" is about to come out.

·        Loretta Chase's The Jilting of Lord Rothwick: On the eve of Queen Victoria's wedding to Prince Albert, the Marquess of Rothwick learns his fiancĂ©e, Barbara Findley, has broken their engagement! So he desperately rides out of London to seek her out . . . and to win her back.

ROYAL WEDDINGS is on-sale 4/5/11 wherever e-books are sold.  More information is available online at www.avonromance.com.

Also Available from Avon Impulse:
A LADY’S WISH by Katharine Ashe (e-ISBN
9780062091789) is an exclusive "Rogues of the Sea" Series novella (which includes an excerpt from Ashe’s new novel, Captured by a Rogue Lord, available April 2011).  To the world, Lady Patricia Morgan is a proper lady. But in secret, she yearns for scorching romance with a certain breathtaking gentleman she has never forgotten. They spent one perfect day together, but he disappeared before she could learn his name. Eight years ago, Captain Nikolas Acton ran off to join the navy so he could forget the mysterious young lady who, after promising him her heart, simply vanished. Now, he has returned to England as a war hero, and is staggered to come face to face with the woman who still possesses his heart.
Available wherever e-books are sold.
