Jaime Rush is On. My. List.
Not in a bad way! My list of authors to try out! I really love the looks of this series, and the lovely people at Avon have provided me with utter temptation. However, the current releases are well into the series, and I want to start at the beginning, so I'm not quite ready for this new release.
Excuses, I know. But this really is a series I want to try out. Plus, check out that cover. Love a man with a really big sword.
Today is release day for number six in the series, and Ms. Rush is hosting a contest with cash prizes-- you don't see that often in the blogosphere. If you've got a kick-butt* story you want to share with the world... don't worry, all you need to do is share the first line. Even if you don't want to compete, go read the entries, they're tons of fun.
Here's the blurb for Darkness Becomes Her:
Desperately in need of redemption, Lachlan McLeod has a mission: find the beast who put his brother into a coma. He'll start with Jessie Bellandre, his brother's girlfriend, who's harboring a dark, dangerous secret that could get them all killed. But as they fight the battle of their lives, not falling in love with her will be as hard as staying alive.
If you're as intrigued as I am, here's the info for the first book, A Perfect Darkness:
A sexy stranger wakes Amy Shane in the dead of night with an urgent warning. He barely has time to whisper a few words before three men burst in and drag him away. But what Lucas Vanderwyck reveals shatters Amy’s safe little world forever.
Lucas and Amy share a connection beyond reality and a psychic gift—a gift that could get them killed. Lucas can come to her dreams, and she must piece together clues to find him as a shadowy government conspiracy tracks her every move. To save Lucas, and find the truth, she must use the psychic ability she abhors, strike up dangerous alliances, and risk not only her heart, but her very life.
