Genre: Erotic Romance, Paranormal/Fantasy, Interracial, Vampires

Is Ryver up to the challenge of a charmed and deliciously dangerous lover?

Ryver knows she can never go home again. That's fine by her, since she's with Theron, the vampire she loves. Now living in vampire territory, she's learning more about Theron, and not all of it is good. The more she sees, the more she's convinced that the man she fell in love with, the man who can make her body sing with a single touch, might not be the man she thought he was.

Caveat Emptor -- Let the Buyer Beware.

3 Little Known Facts About Caveat Emptor 2: Trapped Lover

#1 - It took six weeks from my initial submission of Charmed Lover for me to partially plot the entire Caveat Emptor series and finish Trapped Lover for submission. It would have taken less time, but I felt the need to write the fifth book in the series before the second.

#2 - Because the first book in the series was only a 10,110 words, I tried to keep the second book (as well as all of the books that follow) in the same ten thousand word range. Trapped Lover hit 11,320 words. Suffice to say, I failed that little challenge and keep failing it. Each book demands more space.

#3 - I had to look up millionaire homes in Greece (where Theron lives) to get some ideas for the look and feel of Theron's home. While I would like to link to the home that I found, it was listed on a realty site that has since removed the home from its listings. I can only assume the home was purchased. It was a beautiful home, and I'm glad I caught it when I did.

I think it must be difficult to stay within a required word count. Hopefully whatever you have to cut can be used in later stories.

I agree with Leanne, it's sometimes nice to have a quick read to get you into a series...kind of like a taste test...and then build on it with longer stories.

Stacie - It's not so much of a required word count as it is me wanting to keep the stories the same length. But I'm not going to be cutting anything essential to keep them all the same length. I'm letting the stories be as long as they want to be... so long as they stay novellas. :P

Leanne - I love a quick read too.

Cathy - Glad you enjoyed it.

Stormy - That seems to be what's happening though I didn't plan it that way. But, whatever works. :)

That is quite a feat taking six weeks to plot the whole series and finish Trapped Lover. You must have been inspired.

I like your research into wealthy homes to get the right feel for Theron's place. Research is much more than just settings and can include everything.

Robin - Thanks!

Na - I was very inspired. Though it was also a form of procrastination since I was avoiding working on my next novel-length book.
