Celebrating A New Amber Allure Release From Carolina Valdez

Today we're celebrating a new Amber Allure release for bestselling author Carolina Valdez.

Carolina warns not to be fooled by the photo. "Even if you walk most of the race, you want to be sure to break into a run for the camera." Although most of her running days have morphed into walking days, she's completed over a hundred distance races - six of them marathons. Her short story about a murder on the streets she's actually competed on, in the Los Angeles Marathon, appears in a Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles anthology.

After a varied career as a registered nurse while winning awards and making sales writing freelance, she decided to retire to finish her first novel. Now she writes about searing passions and the sweetly explosive ecstasies of love.

TWILIGHT by bestselling Amber Allure author Carolina Valdez is included in the Blockbusters AmberPax.

Life is perfect for Cade "Lakota" Montana. Barely into his twenties, he escaped the poverty, illness and drunkenness prevalent on the Montana reservation where he was raised when he agreed to manage an uncle's small spread in Wyoming. His relationship with Dr. Lee Donaldson, his lover, and the ranch's new veterinarian, is secure, and now Cade's proven even wild horses can be broken without pain to carry saddle and rider. A recognized horse whisperer, he's excited about his plans to teach his methods to others.

Into this good life, an inherited quirk in his Lakota Native DNA brings an inescapable horror that forever changes who and what he is. The penalty for revealing the secret of this new shift in his nature to anyone, even to Lee, is death, so Cade ends their affair with sudden, permanent abruptness.

Lee, confused and stunned by Cade's unexplained rejection and refusal to talk to or see him after the split, comes to terms with the end of their relationship by planning to sell his practice and move away.

If there is a solution for staying together, will either man be able to find it?

  1. Congrats on the new release Carolina - I read the excerpt - WOW!! Can't wait to read the rest!

    This is a very interesting series Amber Allure put together - books with the titles of Blockbuster movies. How many books are in this series? And did you get to pick the title you wanted or did Amber Allure make the choice for you?

    Enjoy your party and cyber glass of champagne high in the air wishing you another bestseller with this one!

  5. Hi, Anna!

    Nice to hear from you again. I hope you enjoy
    "Twilight." It was a challenge to make it my own story and different from what Meyer wrote.

    Have a great day, all,
    Carolina Valdez

  6. Congratulations on your new release. You're a new author to me. I'll definitely check out your booklist.

  7. Congrats on the new release. I love shifter stories, so this one is definitely going on my wish list.

  8. Congrats on the new release! I'm a big paranormal fan and have really gotten into the m/m genre so I'm very excited to get the chance to read your story.

    Is this a stand alone story or do you see this as a potential series?

  11. I'll bet it was difficult for you to take this title and "make it your own story" as you say. I read the excerpt and it sounds as though you did a great job.

    Is this your first shapeshifter story? I like that he isn't a wolf, to make it much different. Is that a jaguar or a mountain lion or what? And did you do a lot of research on Indian tribes?

    I can really see this book become the beginning of a series. Hope you have much luck with it.

  12. This sounds good. I haven't read many of this genre but what I have read, I've liked.

    I'll be putting this book on my "wish list". Good luck with it.

    Btw, I agree with joder and karen, this might be a great series!

  13. Ooops. Just noticed that I forgot to leave my email.

  14. What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?
