Spotlight on…Lara Adrian

As most of you have probably heard by now, Lara Adrian‘s upcoming Midnight Breed book, Crave the Night, will be her last publishing house release. She has decided to go back to self-publishing whatever stories follow in the series, and also to branch out into other new worlds. One such new world is her new Phoenix Code series, written with Tina Folsom. The first book is going to be called Cut and Run, and it has a release date of November 17th. At this point, it looks like an e-book only release.

Darkly gifted and dangerously skilled, they were once the nation’s most powerful asset. Betrayed by unknown enemies, unable to trust anyone–not even one another–the Phoenix hold the key to unmasking a conspiracy steeped in blood and fire. To survive, they’ll have to solve . . . The Phoenix Code.

CUT by Lara Adrian

Community college professor Ethan Jones is living a lie. A precognitive agent known as Zephyr, Ethan is part of Phoenix, a covert government ESP program with global influence and powerful, hidde enemies. He’s accustomed to subterfuge and deception, but when the Phoenix program is betrayed and shut down, Ethan is forced to cut all ties to the life he’s made and everyone in it–including smart, beautiful Tori Connors, the one woman who tempted the cold agent to let down his impenetrable facade.

A chance encounter years later and thousands of miles away thrusts the lovers together again, and this time Tori refuses to let Ethan deceive her. She hasn’t been able to forget him, or the scorching passion they shared. Although Ethan is a dangerous enigma, she still desires him, and soon their inconvenient reunion becomes a temptation too strong to resist. With assassins closing in from all sides, Ethan and Tori embark on a desperate race for their lives–one that will put their tentative trust to the ultimate test.

RUN by Tina Folsom

Motorcycle mechanic and biker Scott Thompson isn’t the laid-back loner he makes everyone believe. Three years ago, he was known as Ace, and belonged to an elite group of agents in a top secret CIA program. However, the preternatural ability that made him an invaluable asset to the government could now become his downfall, for he has to resist acting upon his premonitions, or risk exposing himself to the enemies reponsible for the destruction of the Phoenix program and the murder of his mentor. When his skill alerts him to a looming disaster bound to kill dozens of innocents, his compelled to take action.

To save her position from planned budget cuts, Phoebe Chadwick needs to prove to her editor that she is a brilliant journalist with a knack for sniffing out a juicy story. When the mysterious Scott prevents a tragic accident which could have killed her and many others, she tries to interview him. But the handsome stranger is a reluctant hero unwilling to answer her probing questions.

Bad boy Scott instantly feels the sizzling chemistry between him and the persistent reporter and makes a decision that he fears will bit him in the ass soon: He allows Phoebe to get close–not only to his body, but also to his heart, always wondering when somebody will find out his secret.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to something different from Lara Adrian, or do you wish that she would focus more on wrapping up the Midnight Breed series? Crave the Night had a couple of significant push-backs (if I am not mistaken I believe it was originally due out last fall, then this past January, and now it is due this August), but hopefully things can get back to a more steady schedule.

    First, can I just say how much I love that you keep your readers up-to-date on everything? I would never have known she was going to self-publishing if it wasn’t for your blog.

    Anyways. I’m personally really excited to get something new from her. I adore her Midnight Breed series but it will be nice to see a new world.

    Cut and Run both sound pretty interesting.. I always look forward to Lara Adrian’s books…

    On a side-note: Cut & Run is also the series name of yet another one of favourite authors – Abigail Roux… Have you read her? She writes M/M and there are 8 books so far…

    I’ll be absolutely honest. I think it’s wonderful that she is starting a new series but I won’t be reading it until the Midnight Breed series is done, When delays start I get weary. And what happens if the delay goes on and on is that I start loosing interest and eventually it gets to the point where I’ll read the book whenever it comes out but not with the same anticipation that I had originally, Now that’s not anyone’s fault, it’s just the way I am. An example is Karen Marie Moning….love her books…but the delays just bug me to no end…..darn it…if it takes you two years to write it fine…but don’t announce the publishing date and then keep putting it off time after time. Sorry, this is a pet peeve of mine.
