It’s here! CAUGHT UP IN RAINE launched on April 18th! It’s been a long time since August 2013, when I spotted the landscaper who looked like one of the characters in my Angelorum Twelve series… That question of, “What if I’d stopped to ask him to be the cover model on my next novel?” became the seed for the story of CAUGHT UP IN RAINE. My heroine, romance novelist Jillian Grant, finds out! I’m so thrilled that you’ll finally get the chance to meet Jillian and Raine whose story is set in the towns and neighborhoods where I’ve lived! Check out reviews on Goodreads, and praise on the Caught Up in RAINE page. And the new cover is now available! Special thanks to New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author, Caridad Pineiro for her cover blurb! “O’Connor delivers a unique women’s fiction story packed with emotion, humor and sexiness.  I could not turn the pages quickly enough…”

If you’d like more of Raine (I know I do!), check out his monthly recipe column, Recipes from Raine’s Roost (aka Jillian’s kitchen), on Joyce Lamb’s USA Today Happy Ever After blog! As the tagline says, “Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover Model.” You can find all of Raine’s recipe posts here.  In other happy news, CUIR was announced as a Finalist in the Romance category for the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards!

Click here to ENTER TO WIN a free digital copy of REDISCOVERING RAINE, the followup noverediscover1.17a - Derek- Biglette to Jillian & Raine’s story, before it releases May 23rd. Contest ends May 15th!

The latest Angelorum Twelve news? Sign up to get an exclusive preview of BOOK of FOUR RINGS before it launches in 2016 on the Hope’s Prelude Book page! I’m thrilled that NYT Bestselling Sci-Fi / Fantasy Romance author, Maria V. Snyder, provided the cover blurb for Hope’s Prelude! Sorry to disappoint, but the launch of B4R has been pushed to the end of this summer. In order to make it the best it can be, it needs another round of edits. It will be worth the wait – I promise!

I attended my first RT Booklovers Convention, and it was awesome! Here I am working backstage with the adorable contestants who participated in Christopher Rice’s Cover Model contest that Tuesday night. What a blast! They were great… ABC News covered the event for a Nightline segment. And me at the Giant Book Fair…IMG_0715 (1)

As for the Louboutins, author Seleste deLaney won the shoes. She was over the moon!

That’s not all…the Caught Up in RAINE party was held on April 24th at Grasshopper Off the Green in Morristown (the bar I based the one on in the book). Fun was had by all! Some pictures below. Enjoy!
