Celebrating A New Caveat Emptor Book For Zenobia Renquist

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog we are celebrating the release of DETERMINED LOVER, book six in Zenobia Renquist's (aka D. Renee Bagby) Caveat Emptor Series.

DETERMINED LOVER by Zenobia Renquist

Caveat Emptor Book Six

Medusa must decide if dealing with the pain of her past is a fair price for loving the man who would be her future.

Medusa and Darius have escaped with their lives, but to where? The location is an unknown, like their relationship.

After nearly two hundred years apart, Darius is ready to move forward, but Medusa cannot reconcile her present self with the past she purposefully forgot.

Caveat Emptor -- Let the Buyer Beware.


Renee is a military brat turned military wife who is currently stationed in Hawaii with her husband and two cats.

Whether writing as D. Renee Bagby or Zenobia Renquist, she is a world-builder. She loves inventing new cultures and shaping their histories and laws because it beats researching the existing ones.

Her stories span the fantasy gamut but she dabbles in sci-fi and contemporary from time to time. While her main characters tend to be of different races, she doesn't let skin color rule or limit her stories. For her, it's all about how much she can torture her characters so they earn their happily-ever-after ending.

The rules are all new and pre-conceived notions will only slow you down, so when reading Renee's stories, she asks only one thing -- Leave Your Reality Behind.


WIN - Leave Zenobia a question today at her Cyber Launch Party and your name goes in the hat for a copy of her new book!! Please leave your email address so we can contact you if you are today's winner - Good Luck!


  1. Super congrats on the new release Zenobia/Renee!

    For those not familiar with your Caveat Emptor Series, can you tell us about it and how the books fit together?

    How many more books do you plan for this series? And do the books need to be read in order?

    Have a wonderful release day and enjoy your party! Hope DETERMINED LOVER is your biggest seller yet!

  2. Hi DeNita and thanks for having me. I always love your launches.

    For those new to the Caveat Emptor series, this is the story of three couples and their struggle to make love work during the middle of the vampire-mage war.

    The books are written as couplets and should be read as couplets. As well they are a linear progression. CHARMED LOVER and TRAPPED LOVER are about Ryver and Theron. PROVOKED LOVER and ANGUISHED LOVER are about Sicily and Lamon.

    FORGOTTEN LOVER and the new release DETERMINED LOVER are Medusa and Darius's stories.

    FORGOTTEN LOVER told you about their past. DETERMINED LOVER will reveal if they still have a future.

    After those six, there's only one more book left. The big reveal is yet to come. I look forward to seeing everyone's reaction. Until then (which then might not be until summer), I hope everyone enjoys this installment.

  7. Fedora - Hi, thanks, and you're welcome.

    Being in Hawaii is very calming so I've been writing more. The only real change is dealing with the five hour time difference between here and the east coast. I'm waking up when everyone is having lunch. I'm having lunch when everyone is finishing their day and heading off to bed. And I go bed around midnight my time so people on the east coast are just getting up.

    In other words, I tend to miss some things are come in late.

  11. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your
    weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing,

  12. Thank you sο much for this. I'm a writer from Windsor, United States and what I just read here on could not be written any better. Going through this post reminds me of my past roommate, Franchesca. He persistently kept preaching about this. I will definitely send these ideas to him. Pretty sure he will have a good time reading this. I appreciate you for revealing this.
