Cool new books- Beth Kery’s serials

By Vivian Arend

(Scroll down to see where the HIGH RISK blog tour links are)

In a neat twist, Beth Kery’s latest will be out the same day as HIGH RISK, and so we’re going to peek at what she’s got happening. Actually, she’s got TWO books out on March 5. The print bound version of all eight parts of BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE and the start of a new story!

From Beth:

What’s the scoop with When I’m With You?

So what is the deal with When I’m With You, and how does it relate to Because You Are Mine? I’ve had my fair share of people ask this, so here’s the short answer.

When I’m With You is a serial erotic romance, an extremely steamy love story being released initially as Because You Are Mine was released, as an 8 part serial, each installment coming out every Tuesday. The hero and heroine of When I’m With You are feisty-with-a-heart-of-gold-bad-girl heiress Elise Martin and the only man who has the hope of taming her, handsome-as-the-devil-with-a-secret, Lucien Savauge. Now many people are asking, what about Ian and Francesca from Because You Are Mine? Ian and Francesca are in When I’m With You, and a major part of their romance unfolds in this book, preparing the reader for the third book, Because We Belong, which is out in November. When I’m With You is a very steamy, extremely emotional romance between two people who may seem like they’ve had it all–money, status, looks–but really have lived in a gilded cage. Lucien has escaped that gilded cage, and Elise longs to. But she has to learn a little control for once in her life…and Lucien is the only one she’ll allow to teach her…or who could possibly could accomplish the task. The three books create an overall story arc, with themes of family, sacrifice and the power of letting go of control in order to truly find it. I found Lucien and Elise’s story to be funny at times, heartwarming and emotional at others and always, always sexy.

WHEN I’M WITH YOU: PART I
WHEN WE TOUCH

Beginning 3/5/13 with each new installment coming out on Tuesdays: New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires…

Restaurateur and self-exiled heir Lucien Lenault’s first look at the breathtaking young chef trainee for his trendy Chicago restaurant is a shock. She’s Elise Martin, daughter of a wealthy French fashion designer. She’s also the holder of a secret that could explode his carefully laid plans.

Notorious for her flagrant exhibitionism, and for flouting the respectable façade of her aristocratic background, the coquine’s wild streak shocked most people. Not Lucien. He was tempted by it. It was a deliriously punishable offense as far as Lucien was concerned. But taking on Elise is more than a game. She’s a catastrophe waiting to happen, an inferno that’s burned many a lover. Lucien isn’t most men, however, and he won’t allow her to manipulate him. In order to control the defiant beauty—in order to see her submit—he’s going to have to willingly walk in the flames…

Neat, right? So to celebrate I’m going to give away 5 copies of PART ONE of WHEN I’M WITH YOU. Beth is also giving away a PRINT copy of the complete novel of  BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE on my Facebook page. The best of both worlds–something for those who like to have pages to anticipate each week, and a full novel for those who like to sit down and consume the whole feast.

I’m having trouble with those connections and they are techno-failing far too often, so the only way I can know for sure who is interested is by checking the blog on my website/ FB page. I’ll pick the winners for part 1 on Sunday eve.

I’m still on the fence about how i feel about serials. I have read a few and it’s the long wait between i don’t like. Every Tues though doesn’t seem bad. That might be fun and add a little something to it. When you have to wait months you forget what you read in the last part or parts. lol Annoying! Then i have to go refresh my memory.

    I agree, Lisa. I think there can be a neat anticipation with a book like this in parts, but not TOO spread out. That said, it’s nice there is a choice of styles for readers to try. Enjoy now, enjoy later!
