Naughty After Dark Blog Hop

Greetings everyone,

I have been so busy settling into my new job and adjusting to the new city that I’ve had no time at all to post an update. So here goes: Valentines Day: color me ashamed – I so totally did not give as much as I received. But at least I can’t complain I’m not loved. Sequel book: Enchanted Desire – I’m in the first phase of edits and we are shooting for a May release. I love how Gina and Eric’s story is shaping up. Others news: I’m participating in the Naughty After Dark Blog hope arranged by Nikki and Natasha Blackthorne. Thank you, ladies.

I’m giving away an e-copy of Enchanted Destiny and a coffee mug that features both my book covers on it to one lucky winner. Post a comment, tweet this giveaway, shout out via Facebook or subscribe to my newsletter to enter.


Each day, you receive one entry for each comment, Facebook post, Tweet, and/or newsletter subscription. (so if you do all 4, you get 4 entries for that day; if you do only 2, you get 2 entries that day; and so on). Open from Feb 15, 2012 to midnight eastern time Feb 22, 2012. Winner will be randomly selected on Feb 23 and posted here. You must add a link in the comments section to your facebook post or tweet to be counted. Don’t forget to add your email so I can contact you if you win. Mug can only be sent to US and Canadian mailing addresses. If you live outside either of these countries, you will receive an e-copy of Enchanted Destiny and a $15 Amazon gift certificate instead.

Here’s the next three links on this blog hop. You could literally win a zillion books (okay, slight exaggeration — but there are some really cool authors and giveaways). So hop on over and check them out!

What a gift!

So Santa just keeps popping up at my house these days. Check out this book trailer made for me by fellow Entangled author, the amazing Rachel Firasek.

Thank you, Rachel for the time and energy you spent on this. I expect, Jake and Kat will be weighing in soon. :D

4 stars from Romantic Times for Enchanted Destiny

Christmas came early! I was so excited to see this review of Enchanted Destiny.

by Rayka Mennen

Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, E-book
Sensuality: MILD

RT Rating

Mennen’s latest is a delightful tale of destined love. Her characters are colorful, from straightlaced Jake to Kat, the witch who is determined not to get caught in her family’s legacy … until she does. Readers will laugh and cry along with Kat and Jake as they become ensnared in their destiny.

Jake Taggert has two goals in life: raise his son Cameron to the best of his ability and not fall in love again. But then Kat Richetti saves him from a fatal accident. Self-proclaimed witch Kat is shaken when she saves Jake, more from the vision she had that allowed her to rescue him than anything else. Because in Kat’s family, the only time a female receives a vision is when it involves the man she is destined to marry. She and Jake must accept their destiny by her 25th birthday — in three weeks — or Kat will lose her magic. No pressure, right? (ENTANGLEDPUBLISHING.COM, dl $2.99)

Don’t cast aside the opportunity to discover how to mix destiny and enchantment as Ms. Mennen artfully scribes the inner thoughts of a spellbound witch and a hunk of a bachelor.

Cover for Enchanted Desire

Whoa, screech, bounce, bounce. Can you tell how exited I am about this cover? A second fabulous cover from Heather Howland and Entangled Publishing. I’m almost afraid to write a third book. Can Heather beat these two?

Enchanted Desire

Destiny’s never been so dangerous.

Coming Dec 1, 2011 from Entangled Publishing.

Friday news

HI everyone

Are you glad the week is almost over? I can’t wait for Friday evening – not sure why when I’ll be working straight through on a project due Monday. Sigh, wishful thinking I guess.

Stop and visit me at Much Cheaper Than Therapy today. Two giveaways with this blog – only today.

Also, watch for a brand re-launch site of the The Naked Hero – 16 Goddesses, naked heroes. Yes, you may join the party if you ask nicely. <grin>

Have a great weekend. I am going back to editing Enchanted Desire.

Cheers, Rayka
