I want to welcome Jenny Schwartz to the blog today! Jenny is a Carina Press launch author, and she's written an intriguing paranormal romance called THE PRICE OF FREEDOM. Check out the beautiful cover!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself, what inspires you and, of course, your super-cool book.
Hi Liz, I'm so happy to visit. Catching up with other authors has been and is one of the joys of having a novella published with Carina Press.
I'm a West Australian writer. I fell into story telling naturally--not because my nose grows daily with tall tales, but because I'm an avid reader. I have a real weakness for Golden Age mystery writers such as Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh and Margery Allingham. A lot of people love Georgette Heyer for her Regency romances, but I think her mysteries are just as good and time has added a great deal of charm to their 1930s and 1950s settings.
But at heart I'm a romantic. I love a happy ending even more than a tasty murder ;) And happy endings are what I write.
The Price of Freedom is my latest story, published with Carina Press. It is a paranormal romance novella with angels and djinn and all the romance of Arabia. I hope that when people read it they carry away my belief that living life passionately is more important, more satisfying, than living life safely.
Duty will bring them together—and tear them apart!
As a guardian angel, Mischa must protect the one man who may be able to bring about lasting peace to the Middle East. As a djinni, Rafe must fulfill the wishes of a terrorist leader. Their duties colliding, Mischa and Rafe become foes, but the heat between them is undeniable.
When the terrorist learns that a guardian angel stands between him and his greatest wish, he orders his djinni to remove her. Taking creative license, Rafe spirits her away to his private oasis, where she will be unable to protect the peacemaker.
Beyond their mutual desire, they find common ground in honor and loneliness. Passion quickly grows into love. But it’s soon clear to Rafe that love cannot be bound, and Mischa must be true to her life’s purpose. Even if Rafe must sacrifice his own taste of freedom to grant hers…
Thanks, Liz, for letting me visit. I can't wait till you fly over to my blog on July 6.
Happy reading, everyone :)
