This former veterinary intern owes her decision to concentrate on her artistic career to a moment three years ago while grocery shopping in the nearby store where some of her work was on display. She silently observed the attractive man who lives across the lake—the man she would watch swimming nude each evening—buy the carving she did of the wolf she'd been lucky enough to photograph. Rachel and the man, wilderness guide Jake Hunter, were not to meet face-to-face again until her life was threatened.

Q&A with Z. Allora!

1.  Tell us about your newest release. Thanks so much for having me.   My new release is Made in China: The Great Wall. It's a hot rocker romance set in Suzhou, China. Made in China begins before they even form a band.   It explores what it's like to grow up gay in a place which literally denies the existence of homosexuality. Gay is considered by most living in China is a Western concept so it's incredibly difficult for my characters. Styx wants to be a drummer and to love his best friend Jin Lan but he's been conditioned to be a good son, get married and have a child. Parental desires are never questioned and individual happiness is never a consideration. 2.  Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? I love the scene where the band is at Suzhou's only gay club. I was at this club and the scene brings me back to the smoky little hole in the wall. I remember it was the only place in Suzhou I went that I wasn'

THE BEACH CLUB by Elin Hilderbrand This is an older novel by this author, but sounds good. The blurb: Mack Petersen, manager of the hotel, has been working at The Beach Club for 12 summers. Only this summer is different. His boss, the owner of the hotel, Bill Elliot, shows up in the spring with a new set of demands. His girlfriend Maribel is pressing Mack to get married and Vance, the African-American bellman, who has hated Mack since the day Mack stole his job 12 years ago, threatens him in a deadly scene. Mack knows something's got to give. Love O'Donnell, the new front desk person straight from the slopes of Aspen, is desperately searching for a stranger to father her child. The bellman, Jem Crandall, who posed as Mr. November in his college calendar, is on his way to LA to break into agenting, until he falls in love with Maribel. Emotions are at a peak when a hurricane threatens to wash away The Beach Club and all it stands for. An engrossing, sexy novel

Guest Blogger: Adriana Kraft on STEPPING OFF A CLIFF

Have you ever stepped off a cliff? Literally, I mean. I never have. My mother did – I have photos of her rappelling Outlook Rock in Carderock, Maryland, before she met and married my father. Truthfully, most likely she was ascending, rather than having stepped off…but she faced the challenge of the cliff, nonetheless – repeatedly, it turns out. But figuratively? Countless times. Both my husband and I (who co-author erotic romance under our pen name, Adriana Kraft), feel a strong affinity for the Fool card in the Tarot Deck. He would probably say just marrying him was stepping off a cliff – taking on three stepsons, including a teenager, and embarking on our hopelessly romantic journey to co-author fiction. Most recently, we’ve sold our house, sold or given away nearly all our belongings (our now-grown kids got the important family pieces), packed our remaining possessions into our motorhome, and embarked on a full time journey of traveling, writing, marketing, and editi
