So Rain Shadow is, of course, related to the other books in the series. While they can all be read as standalones, this one is somewhat of a prequel to Stuck Landing, which will be the first lesbian book.
Basically, Rain Shadow is the story of Jeremy, who works as Anna Maxwell’s bodyguard. While Jeremy and Scott engage in their shenanigans, Anna’s life is rapidly coming unraveled. Or rather, her relationship with her longtime girlfriend is rapidly coming unraveled. They haven’t exactly been in a good spot for a while now—as many of you may recall from as far back as Starstruck—but now they’re circling the drain.
On the bright side, their attempts to save their relationship mean dragging Jeremy with them to their endless counseling appointments. But of course, there’s no need to take her bodyguard into her appointments, right? And there’s only so much Angry Birds a guy can play in the waiting room before he finally has to slip into the office across the hall and—
Well. You’ll just have to wait and see.
As for Anna, her situation is pretty sucky. It has been for a while, and it only gets worse.
But never fear! Anna has happiness on the horizon.
Or does she…?
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jeremy Rose came to Bluewater Bay to work as Anna Maxwell’s bodyguard, not to escape his increasingly bitter relationship with his estranged kids. He just wants to focus on his job and be alone for a while. He’s done with love, especially now that three years after his long overdue divorce, he’s got a front-row seat to the rapid deterioration between Anna and her girlfriend. Cynical doesn’t even begin to describe him.
Then Anna and Leigh’s attempts to reconcile put him in the crosshairs of marriage counselor Scott Fletcher. Scott’s exactly what Jeremy needs right now: gorgeous, hot, horny, single, and 100% uninterested in a relationship. The problem is, too much no-strings-attached sex — and too much time in each other’s company — inevitably builds emotional connection.
Except Jeremy refuses to seek counseling for his broken family, and Scott refuses to get seriously involved with men who work dangerous jobs. They both need to realize they can only hide for so long from the pain they came here to escape. They must face their pasts before they lose their shot at a happy future.
Rain Shadow is available from Riptide Publishing.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…
L. A.’s backlist is available on her website, and updates (as well as random thoughts and the odd snarky comment) can be found on her blog or on Twitter @GallagherWitt.
