Follow her heart, or make her family proud . . . ?
Avia Rockwell—heiress to Melina’s Vineyard—must find a suitable husband. But one forbidden kiss from Cade Kildare, a childhood friend and rakehell foreman, makes all of her promises fall to pieces. When her father insists on a match with a respectable gentleman caller, Avia is forced to follow duty over her heart.
She is far beyond his reach, yet Cade cannot help himself from tormenting Avia at every turn. She’s willful and wild, and everything he desires in a woman. No man will ever be good enough, and as Cade uncovers secrets that could rip her world apart, he will do anything—even give up his life—to save hers.
From Northern California’s wine country to the earthquake that shattered San Francisco, two lovers battle each other and the evil forces bent on tearing them apart.
READER ADVISORY: This book contains scenes of argumentative behavior between a stubborn hero and fiery heroine, hot sex, wicked adventure, and a little twist.

I think we all suspected the eventual downfall of Samhain Publishing, despite the initial shock last year when the publisher announced their upcoming closure...only to stay open. Since then I had a feeling they couldn't hang on much longer. Many authors became fed up with too many "we got this" or "we're figuring it out" and "we might have a buyer" announcements that were made. You can only have faith for so long, and in today's tumultuous world of publishers coming and going, trust runs out pretty quick.
Back in late 2011 I was excited to be offered a contract for Dark Sun Rising by what was considered one of the big shots in publishing. I had a wonderful experience at Samhain under my old pen name, BL Bonita. My editor was awesome, I got a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and my royalties were always on time.
So, looks like I'll have yet another old book to shop around once my rights are returned. Even though I'm disappointed by the outcome, I look forward to finding a new (hopefully permanent) home for this wonderful story.
Until next time, folks...
