BETRAYED Cover Reveal & Release Date!

It's been all systems go at Ellora's Cave since the weekend! First of all Betrayed,  book #3 in my sexy warriors and magical Druid heroines series has been moved from the Legend line to the Xanadu line, which I'm thrilled about since this will really highlight the fantasy elements of the book.

Secondly, I received two emails from my editor this morning with the new and improved blurb for Betrayed  - and also a release date!

20th March 2013

This means I have only a month to get my butt in gear and prepare for launch day. A daunting prospect when you consider it normally takes me about three months to get my head around the fact I actually have a release date coming up!

And here is the blurb:

In 51 A.D., Druid priestess Nimue is injured and enslaved by the hated Roman Legions. Even though she is drawn to her captor, she’s determined to escape and complete her mission for the Briton king and her duty to Arianrhod, the goddess she is bound to.

The tough Roman warrior who captures her is far from the brutal barbarian she expects. His touch inflames her desires and passion burns between them. Though Nimue does not accept her enslavement, her heart surrenders to her enemy. When Arianrhod appears to her in the form of an owl, Nimue knows the union is blessed.

Roman warrior Tacitus is enchanted by the fiery beauty who shows no fear and challenges him at every turn. Though enslaving her goes against his heart, he’s determined to make her his. No woman has ever heated his blood as she does. But when he discovers her true nature as one who actually communes with the gods, his loyalties are torn between his heritage and a woman who could destroy everything he’s ever believed in.

A Romantica® fantasy erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Congrats! I have a release date on 15 March from EC.
I think the cover looks sexy. Glad you got the category changed. That can make a big difference.

LOVE the cover Christina, and your story is so intriguing, can't help but love a captured heroine.
EC are FAST with their release days =)

Thank you, Shelley :-)

I'm really happy with the line being changed to Xanadu. One of the problems with marketing the first book was publishers didn't know where to put it - I really think highlighting the fantasy elements is a great idea!

And yay! Congrats to you too. We'll be shelf sisters!!!

I'm still reeling at the speedy release date! Can't quite believe it :-)
