Thursday, April 7, 2011


My D-day came a day earlier. The official release day is April 8, 2011.

My book is already available at The Wild Rose Press and at both in print and in Kindle.

I hope you will get it as soon as possible and send me a review.

Since my book is set in Belarus, I will pick from among the reviews two lucky winners and send them a Belarusian gift: A Belarusian handmade box or a Russian genuine amber pair of earrings I bought from Minsk. I will upload their pictures in my next blog.

My offer is opened for a month, until May 5th, 2011 to give you time to read my novel and write your review. I will be very grateful if you follow my blog.

Blurb for Rx IN RUSSIAN:

An American Pediatrician / A Russian Surgeon

A woman who lost a son and frantically avoids marriage and family

A man with four adorable sons who badly need a mother

Can attraction and love overcome guilt, duty, and a clash of cultures?

Tilting her head, she smiled at him. His smile faded.

Slowly their faces moved closer and closer, and she inhaled his aftershave. His lips touched hers. She didn’t back away. His hand cradled her nape as he slanted his mouth and tasted hers.

It was a sweet kiss, not too deep and not too demanding, a get-to-know-you-better kiss in a crowded place. But a kiss that left her thirsty for more.

When he moved away, she inched forward and touched the tip of her tongue to his bottom lip, tracing its contour. He responded to the invitation and claimed her mouth again, molding their lips together and sucking on them until she couldn’t breathe. She pulled away this time.

“An officer and a doctor,” she murmured. Reveling in the amazing pleasure of their first kiss, she licked her lips to savor the taste of his mouth a bit longer. “No wonder you never married. Like me you were too busy with your studies and then your career.”

She knew now why she was so attracted to him, in spite of their different nationalities and backgrounds, in spite of her pledge never to let a man get under her skin. They seemed to be on the same wavelength, one of a kind in their way of thinking and acting.

Silence danced between them for long seconds.

She smiled. He frowned.

“You are wrong, Jillian.” He pursed his lips and raised his eyebrows, giving her a speculative look. “I was married.”

Happy Release Day!!!!

(tossing confetti all over blogger and blowing party horn)

One thing I've learned from reading your books: They take you to exotic lands and you totally lose yourself in the story!

Oh Molly thank you so much. May I use this for promo please?
