So, a book has appeared from DellArte (formerly Harlequin Horizons) the Harlequin-associated vanity press. Dargan's Desire is presumeably a sign of things to come. I have a few, um, suggestions to make about the current product description.
is plans to marry ing the man of her dreams, just as soon as she returns from her trip to the Carolinas. -oOn the first night there, alleverything is changed in an instant. Why? Because the hero of my recently completed novel, Dargan 's Desire, has mistakenly taken her virginity. (WTF?)
Charming, spirited, full of
excitement enthusiasm and exquisitely beautiful, Wren is forced into a loveless marriage when a beast of a man who takes her innocence. (Um, the hero rapes her? Accidentally?) Worldly and influential, Dargan Knight , feels as if he has been trapped by this sprite of a girl in to a loveless marriage he will never be able to get out of. Then fate steps in to shake up both their lives when Wren realizes she is with child. (Because having children always fixes up a shakey marraige).
Set in South Carolina in 1826, this fun and sensual
, the book contains a tale is woven through with love and deceit. It is about how life teaches Teaching two people the ultimate meaning of honesty, passion, and devotion love.
Just my 2c, of course. Any of my editors could attest to the fact that all of my work requires quit a bit of assistance before it is ready for prime time. The same is true for most writers. But it seems that DellArte is not going to provide that assistance?
