AuthorBuzz Giveaway: A Mix of Romance & Tragedy

in Potpourri by

Dear Reader, With thirteen romances under my belt, I was eager to challenge myself to write something with a slightly different rhythm. In a way, stepping into suspense gave me permission to create a world that was more intense than anything I’d written before—more dangerous, more disturbing, and rich with opportunities for my characters to be challenged and grow. The Red Ledger Series, a tale about Tristan Red, an assassin whose newest mark, Isabel Foster, is also a long lost lover, allowed me to do that. I’m giving away five books. Write [email protected] to win! Meredith Dear Reader, When I first read that Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Long Island magnificent mansion, full of his stained glass and artwork, had burned down in 1957 and…

in Fiction by

The scent of perfume almost wafts off the pages of M. J. Rose’s latest work, The Collector of Dying Breaths. It’s an intriguing combination of a story set in Renaissance France and a contemporary one featuring Jac D’Etoile, the heroine of two prior Rose books. Check out BookTrib’s review of The Collector of Dying Breaths here. The nose knows. Jac is a member of a family that has created exquisite perfumes for centuries. She is the descendant of famous noses, as it were. Her own sense of smell is exceptional, but that is not what makes Jac unique. Jac has knowledge of her past lives. She has been reincarnated, and flashes of a prior life flit across her mind as she…

The scent of reincarnation

in Fiction by

The Collector of Dying Breaths (Atria, April) is the follow-up to The Book of Lost Fragrances and Seduction. They all feature Jac (short for Jacinth) L’Etoile, a young woman who is part of a perfume dynasty in France. She was joined in the previous novels by her brother Robbie, her on-and-off boyfriend, Griffin North, and her mentor, Malachi Samuels. These three books are part of a larger collection of books built around a theme: reincarnation. Jac has experienced past-life regression or “memory lurches,” as author M. J. Rose terms it. She sees herself in prior lives interacting with Griffin’s prior incarnations, to no good end in each case. In addition to being able to sense her own past lives, she apparently…
