Harlequin E-Shivers Boxed Set Released!!

Okay, I'm just a wee bit late for this news/update, forgive me, I've been busy since the new year.

But, to my delight, Harlequin E Shivers released the first four books in their new gothic-related series on January 6th.  And, though my post is a little late, I got the series on the second day.  I've read two of them already and have some awesome reviews/interviews in the works from this line of books!

The boxed set currently is crazy cheap, available as an eread (kindle ebook) from for just $3.82.

You can order here.

The boxed set includes all FOUR of the first-released books from this Harlequin line.  I was so excited when I first heard that Harlequin was going to revive their gothic books, but after purchasing (and reading) these books, I'm ecstatic to see that they have sold well (made the top 100 in  the gothic genre on amazon!) and volume 2 is already available for pre-order!

Volume 1 Includes the following books:

Darkening Around Me by Barbara J. Hancock
The Devil's Eye by Dawn Brown
Legacy of Darkness by Jane Godman
Black Rose by Jenna Ryan

Exclusive Harlequin books in the new E Shivers series, all boxed together for one low price, and lets NOT forget the amazing, best-selling authors.  What a bargain!

Volume 2 can be pre-ordered here  for the same amazing, low price (and I'll leave info on this volume for another post).  The second volume looks every bit as eerie and tantalizing as the first (with additional best-selling author Jen Christie).

And let's also not forget the pre-publication of Lost In Me by Barbara J. Hancock, which is the very FIRST official release from the E Shiver series, is still available as an absolutely free read here.

The available synopsis for Lost In Me:

"Released from hospital into the care of the man whose eyes have haunted her for a year, a troubled artist returns to Belle Aimée. The antebellum New Orleans mansion is the site of a tragedy Chloe's mind will not disclose. It's also home to an unseen presence that traces her steps, visits her studio and lingers near her bedroom.

Waking and sleeping, Chloe grasps at scraps of memory that flutter about her, alighting eventually on her countless canvases. Only under the stormy eyes—and electrifying touch—of Jonathan La Croix does Chloe begin to remember what they once were to each other. What they could be again. Such a man cannot be forgotten forever…."
Quick Review:

For a year, artist Chloe has languished in a mental hospital.  Her only solace at all has been found in her redundant painting of a face that haunts her.  Handsome, rugged, and nameless, Chloe recognizes this face immediately when she returns to the New Orleans mansion (that was once her home) and lays eyes upon Jonathan La Croix.

Though Jonathan tries to make her return comfortable, neither can deny the innate attraction that stirs between them.  But the memories, flashbacks, the haunting visions of a playroom (and of murder) also return to Chloe.

Surely Chloe will find a way to feel again, to recognize the places, the hands that once made her home before the memories shatter her last, and only, chance left at love...

This short gothic novella set the mood with a rambling, empty mansion and the terrifying mysteries of a woman's past.  The romance that rekindles is also quite satisfying.  A must read!

My Rating:  5 Stars
