Oh, By the Way…


Sooo … have I mentioned I’ve got a book out?

Risk, my second novel, is hitting bookshelves everywhere right this very second, and I’m thrilled to pieces.

When I’m not biting my nails off with the nervous jitters, that is.

Here’s how I describe Risk, in case you’re interested:

When tragedy reunites bad boy Justus Robinson and control freak Angela Dennis, the smoldering passion between them finally erupts—with devastating results. Suddenly both their hearts are at risk…

Here’s what the reviewer for Romantic Times BOOKreviews said about Risk:

Sometimes tragedies bring out the best and worst in those affected by them. That’s what happens in Christopher’s brilliant and tasteful novel about love, tragedy, heartbreak and forgiveness. The author delves deep into her characters, and this touching story will have readers looking into themselves and reexamining the way they react to those around them. (4 ½ Stars)

Have I piqued your interest at all? Yes? No?

What if I tell you a little more about Justus? He’s tall, dark, handsome, devilish, and moody. Since he’s a bad boy, he’s not above a little manipulation here and there, and he has a tendency to do outrageous things. How outrageous, you ask? Well, for one thing, he follows Angela into the ladies’ restroom in a fancy restaurant and talks to her when she’s upset.

I just love reading—and writing about—unpredictable heroes. Don’t you?

I’m in a giving mood today, and I’d like to get LOTS of comments from you lurkers out there, so here’s what I’m going to do. At the end of the day, I’m going to give away a copy of Risk. To be eligible to win, all you have to do is answer the following question:

What’s your favorite “most outrageous thing” a hero in a romance novel has done?

That cover is SOOOOO gorgeous, and the story sounds amazing!! I can't wait to read it!! And HUGE congrats on the 4 1/2 stars from RT! Woo-hooo!!

Hmmm.....most outrageous thing. Well, one of my favorite romance heroes is Colin Byrne from SEP's Ain't She Sweet, and, well, I don't want to give away any spoilers, but the way he gets her to marry him, the way she has to decide that she TRULY and entirely trusts him (risking complete and utter humiliation) was pretty outrageous!

Hmmm, outrageous...I can't recall anything right off that's really outrageous. I like the storming into the girl's bathroom thing that your hero does! Lol! What fun!
