Rain - Release Date

Hi everyone,

Just found out that ‘Rain’ should be released by the end of November –which is great news!

I’m really looking forward to seeing it published. As I’ve said in the past ‘Rain’ is my medieval paranormal romance.

It’s about a girl who finds an elemental spirit. Nuri believes Maras is a fallen angel but Brother Erebus believes he is a demon come to snatch her soul away. Nuri finds herself caught between two men, as they fight over her body and soul.

The inspiration for the story actually came out of living through a drought. The area where I live had suffered from a severe lack of rain for several years. The winter rainfall levels were low, the September rains failed and there was barely a drop during the burning summers. Finally after being sick of seeing blue skies, cracked earth and dead gardens the rains finally came.

One night there was a storm, thunder shook the house and we had lashings of rain (I had forgotten what lashings of rain were like). The storm was violent but the air was sweet and cleansing. As I watched the storm through the open window the idea of Maras, my elemental being who is tied to the tempest began to take form.

The story has a medieval background and has a dark fairytale feel to it.

Anyway, I leave you with the blurb as we wait with bated breath for the cover!

On the mountain, high above the village of Farran – Nuri is caught between heaven and hell. Two men fight for her love and her soul. The first is Maras, an elemental being that follows the storms. Nuri knows that he is not human, he’s something more. She believes he is her beautiful fallen angel. But he is transient and is bound to the elements and their love may be as fleeting as the storm itself. And Brother Erebus, a pious monk whose tortured soul is twisted by his desire for her, will do anything to protect her soul from the silver haired devil, even if he has to crush her body to do it.

Thanks for stopping by.
