Did you know that Jocelynn Drake has a new series out with Rinda Elliot? I didn’t until I caught up with Jocelynn at Coastal Magic this past weekend.
Their new series, the Unbreakable Bonds, is a M/M Romantic Suspense; which is totally different from the paranormal that I’m at least familiar with. Regardless, I am definitely intrigued. We’re talking Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott here! Thankfully we’re not too far behind as the second book in the series, Shatter, releases April 26, 2016.
Maverick trauma surgeon Ashton “Snow” Frost keeps the world at a distance, relying only on his three closest friends to keep him connected. But when a ghost from their past returns to Cincinnati, Snow stands to lose everyone he loves. Framed for murder and reeling from attacks on his friends, Snow is pushed to his breaking point.
Jude Torres won’t let the doc shatter. The paramedic has been attracted to the doctor since he first laid eyes on him at the hospital, even if the arrogant, solitary man doesn’t fit into any of his plans. One hot, reckless kiss shows that Snow isn’t who he appears to be. And one night together will never be enough. Jude will fight for the doc.
Fight to keep him whole. Fight to keep him safe. Fight to simply keep him.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about Drake & Elliott’s new series, never fear…there is time to get caught up. The first novel, Shiver, is already out and these two authors know what us readers want – no waiting for more. Since it does take some time to get books out, they’ve been feeding our need with short stories until Shatter‘s release. You can read The Meeting, Perfect, and Te Iubesc now for free! For those who would like a little glimpse into the story of Snow and Torres, here’s a quick excerpt:
Footsteps crunched through the gravel sprinkled across the blacktop. He looked up and watched Snow stride toward him. His hair shone in the light of the street lamps, the gray streaks stark, and his long dark coat made him look longer and leaner than the white coat Jude was used to seeing him wear. His arrogant detachment was fully back, a darker cloak that wrapped him in what he probably thought was invisible armor. Jude could see every inch of it. Just as he now knew to look for that hint of uncertainty he’d glimpsed earlier.
He didn’t give a shit about the walls this man slapped up between them. He wanted him in a way that changed everything. He didn’t know why, didn’t understand, but he had every intention of cracking the puzzle.
Snow held up a hand. “Look, Torres—”
“Shut up, General.” Jude took a quick glance around the parking lot, which was thankfully empty now. He grabbed the lapels of Snow’s coat, turned and pressed the man’s back to his car.
“What the fuck?”
Jude cut him off by pressing his mouth to Snow’s and murmuring against his lips. “I said… shut up.” This time, he was wide awake and knew where he was. That glimpse of uncertainty earlier, that brief hesitancy, had made him see something receptive in Snow—something that brought Jude’s protective caveman instincts to the surface.
The Unbreakable Bonds
The Unbreakable Bonds Series follows the close friendship of four men — Lucas, Snow, Rowe, and Ian — as their lives are forever changed when a dark shadow from their past resurfaces to extract revenge.
The quartet has been drawn together through a series of struggles, tragic events, and triumphs. They have learned to lean and depend on each other through the years for their survival.
But will their friendship survive the painful events that are set to unfold?
Meet Jocelynn Drake!
Love comes in many varied forms. There is the love of family, love of country, and love of chocolate. But for Jocelynn Drake, one truly treasured love is the love of a good story. This former Kentucky girl spends the majority of her time lost in the strong embrace of a good book. When she’s not hammering away at her keyboard, frowning at her monitor, or curled up with a book, she can usually be found cuddling with her cat Demona, walking her dog Max, or flinging curses at the TV while playing a video game. Outside of books, cats, and video games, she is completely enamored of Bruce Wayne, Ezio Auditore, travel, tattoos, explosions, fast cars, and Anthony Bourdain (but only when he’s feeling really cranky).
Meet Rinda Elliott!
Rinda loves unusual stories and credits growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept them amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, she tried to separate her darker side with her humorous and romantic one. She published short fiction, but things really started happening when she gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, she loves making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with her husband and two children.
