Yep, I think any writer will tell you that their favorite day is the day they have a new book hit the market, and for this old girl, that’s TODAY!!! Yep, If Love is a Lie, Finding and Losing Love Online, hit Amazon this morning. There are two different versions of the book for sale. The regular version, and “The Spicy Version.”
It’s a romantic thriller at heart, but a romance none the less, and I did two versions to satisfy two different Romance Reader types. Those who like a little more spice in their romance, and those who prefer a little more fade to black when things start to heat up. Hence the regular, PG version, and the Spicy Version, a bit more NC-17 plus. 😉
Still, why do two versions of the same book?
Funny you should ask, but it only takes a few hours to make the modifications if while you’re editing the original version, you highlight the racy bits and bobs.
But enough to this, now it’s time to celebrate! To check out my book, you can click on the book cover images below to be taken to the book’s page on Amazon. PURPLE = The Spicy Version. GREEN = The Regular Version.
IF LOVE IS A LIE …. Love is never as easy to find as we wish it would be. When Emily started her online romance with Antonio, a man who seemed to be the one she’d been waiting for all her life, she had no idea what sinister motives lied behind the photos of Antonio’s amazing brown eyes. Blinded by her own desires for romance and companionship, she embraced the lie and ignored the truth of her persistent suspicions of his motivations. What will she do when she learns her great love is nothing more than a scammer, not after her heart, but her money? With revenge her only motive, she sets out on an adventure to bring Antonio down and see him punished for what he’s done to her. But when she’s forced to confront him face to face, will she ultimately find love in his arms, or in Evan’s, the sexy but stoic FBI Agent who enlists her to bring Antonio to justice?
Loosely based on the author’s own unfortunate online romance with a scam artist she mistook for the man of her dreams, the first half of this novel mirrors the author’s own journey to the startling truth of her paramour’s guilt. In life it’s true that we can’t all have happy endings, but though we can’t live them, sometimes we can write them for ourselves.
The real question is … in this case, is truth stranger than fiction?
