Darkness Rises is #2 on Amazon's Best Sellers in Paranormal Vampire Romance list and #2 on Amazon's Vampire Romance Hot New Releases list! It also hit #44 on Barnes and Noble's Top 100 Bestselling Nook Books list! And the audiobook is #2 on Audible's Fantasy Romance Bestseller list!
The response of readers and reviewers to Darkness Rises has been all that I could've hoped for and more. :-)
Darkness Rises received a wonderful review from The Book Vixen. Here's a snippet:
"Excellent paranormal romance with stellar action . . . I adore this series and eagerly await each release."
Liz from Kindles and Wine gave Darkness Rises a fabulous review, too. Here's a taste:
"I really enjoyed Darkness Rises and think anyone who reads paranormal romance would as well . . . A feisty, strong heroine and a sensitive, powerful hero combine to make this book fun and sexy."
I have exciting news to share! Next Wednesday, I will make my blogtalkradio debut in an interview for In the Author's Corner With Etienne.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! (I still can't believe I've done over 100 of these!) In honor of its release, I thought I would give you another quote from Darkness Rises. For those who aren't familiar with the series, Étienne — the hero of Darkness Rises — is telepathic. And, in this quote, he speaks to Krysta the heroine, in her mind:
You’re determined to distract me, aren’t you?
His lips twitched. Why?
Because I had an intriguingly racy dream about you this morning and have been distracted picturing you naked and imaging your hands on me ever since.
His eyes flashed amber.
:-) To those who have told me in emails, messages, etc. that you enjoyed Darkness Rises: Thank you!!! I had such fun writing it and hoped you would like it.
Have a wonderful weekend!
