Celebrating the Release of Lori Foster's BACK IN BLACK

Today we're celebrating the release of BACK IN BLACK a BRAND NEW release in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster's Fighter Series!

Lori Foster first published with Harlequin in January 1996. Her second book launched Temptation Blaze and her 25th book launched Temptation Heat. Since those early days, Lori has routinely had 6 to 10 releases a year. She's a Waldenbooks, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly and New York Times bestselling author with over 50 titles published through a variety of houses, including Berkley/Jove, Kensington, St. Martins, Harlequin and Silhouette.

Lori believes it's important to back to the community as much as possible, and for that reason she ran special contests in conjunction with a publisher, facilitating many first sales for new authors. She routinely organizes events among authors and readers to gather donations for various organizations.Along with her good friend, Dianne Castell, Lori hosts a very special annual "Reader & Author" event in West Chester Ohio. Proceeds from the event go to benefit worthy causes, including the Hamilton County YWCA Battered Women's Shelter, the Animal Adoption Foundation, and The Conductive Learning Center for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.

In fall of 2007, she showed us her dark side by writing urban fantasy in the Servant Series as LL Foster. Her final book in the series, SERVANT: THE KINDRED, is now available.

A brand new contemporary romance in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster's Fighter Series.

SBC president Drew Black is as controversial as they come. But the hot-headed entrepreneur is a perfect match for his popular sports club venture: uncompromising and extreme. Maybe too extreme. With a reputation for saying what he thinks, Drew's been causing a lot of friction. That's why someone's been called in to clean up his image - before he does any permanent damage.

The lucky lady is Gillian Noode, a PR expert who's smoothed out the rough edges on many a man. But Drew is rougher than anyone she's ever met, and he refuses to change for any woman, for any reason. To make matters more complicated, Gillian's starting to like him raw. Now, opposites aren't only attracting, they're igniting. But in the rising heat, which one of them will end up on top?

  1. Congrats on the new release Lori!!! I can't wait to read this one. I love your fighter series!

    How are the books in your fighter series connected? And how many more do you plan in this series?

    What are you working on now?

    Grab some cyber champagne - although some cyber hot chocolate might be a better choice as I watch the snow fly - and let's toast to Back in Black being your best seller yet!

  7. I truly love your books most of your books brighten my day. I've been reading your books at work and start laughing out loud the people around me just sort of look at me but that's okay. I haven't got Back in Black but I will when I get off work tomorrow morning. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job.

  8. Thank you everyone! Such a grand welcome. I'm flattered!
    DeNita, the books are all related by characters, but they each stand alone, too. Some people might not realize that I've had a few novellas with fighters as well. The single title series is 5 books long, but there were connecting novellas in "Tails of Love," and "Double The Pleasure" & "Double the Heat." I do love a hunky fighter!

  19. Hi Lori, I love the 4 books so far in this series, especially the opening page to Harley's story. That just grabbed me and I could not stop reading. I think I lost my eyesight temporarily since it was an all-nighter read.

    When I got to Michael's story, I was pretty blown away and I just throughly enjoyed it. I loved that you put a futuristic twist to it.

    Did you write Michael's story while you had your LL Foster hat on? And will we have a visit from the other characters in Drew's story?

  21. Hi Lori! I read Back in Black last weekend. I thought it was the best fighter book so far. Getting to read the second romance was a huge bonus and I loved how you tied them together. Drew was a good character, but Brett, wow, I just fell in love with him! His quiet strength in doing the right thing just melted my heart - so romantic!

  22. Have not read any of the Fighter series yet, but loved the Servant books.

    My fave character you have ever written will be Joe from "Say No to Joe" though. I love that whole series!!!

  31. I must admit that the cover to Back In Black is what caught my eye. Though it's the last in the series I will just have to go back and play catch up. Good Luck on the new release.

  35. Rachael, thank you. I don't think I've written any other ghosts, but I have written other paranormals, including a "free" story that's posted on my L.L. Foster website - www.llfoster.com Hope you enjoy it!

    Lori

  36. Armenia, thank you! I'm always doubly thrilled when someone tells me she enjoyed Michael's story, because I tend to hear more from the folks who didn't. LOL. I know it was a shocker for many, and I understand their disappointment.

    The book wasn't at all like my L.L. Foster stories, so no, that had nothing to do with it. That's just the way that Michael's story wanted to be written.

    As of right now, I'm done with the fighters and have moved on with a whole new series that'll launch in 2011 with 3 books, back to back. I hope you enjoy them!
    Hugs,

    Lori

  37. Lisa, thank you! :-) I'm thrilled that you thought "Back in Black" was the best one yet. That's what we always hope for, right? To outdo outselves. LOL
    Yeah, Brett tried to take over the book. He was a real sweetheart. Thank you.
    Hugs,

    Lori

  38. Estella, you've read my L.L. books! Thank you.
    :-D I'm so glad you enjoyed them. Yay!
    I'm looking forward to getting back to the L.L. style with a new book that's chewing on my brain.

    Happy reading,

    Lori

  39. Paula, thanks. Whenever readers mention a favorite, MOST of the time it's Joe first, and Noah (from Too Much Temptation) second. Not sure what it is about those two heroes, but they're always the most popular.
    Hugs,

    Lori

  40. Leni, I thought the cover was fantastic, too! But other hunky covers include "My Man Michael" and "Hard to Handle." The first two books in the series didn't have fighters on the covers. LOL
    I think the publisher was unsure as to how the largely female audience would react to them.
    Hugs,

    Lori
