Guest Author-- Cherish D'Angelo

Please welcome my guest on my Depraved Duchess blog, Cherish D'Angelo!

Cherish has a new book out, Lancelot's Lady. Look at this gorgeous cover:

Thank you for inviting me to be a guest on your blog, Lena, especially during my Cherish the Romance Virtual Book Tour, which launches my contemporary romantic suspense, Lancelot's Lady. Every stop on my tour I'm giving away free ebooks to anyone who leaves a comment and their email address, plus I have other fabulous prizes to give away.

Researching the Bahamas was very interesting, and it's made me really want to visit the islands. I love tropical islands―with or without handsome recluses. Probably one of my most interesting discoveries about the Bahamas is that I was unable to find any natural waterfall structures, yet a waterfall is something I envisioned from day one. But I found a way around it. I think readers will enjoy the inclusion of my beautiful waterfall and pool, lit only by the sun and moon and surrounded by palm trees and flowers.

A Bahamas holiday from dying billionaire JT Lance, a man with a dark secret, leads palliative nurse Rhianna McLeod to Jonathan, a man with his own troubled past, and Rhianna finds herself drawn to the handsome recluse, while unbeknownst to her, someone with a horrific plan is hunting her down.

When palliative care nurse Rhianna McLeod is given a gift of a dream holiday to the Bahamas from her dying patient, billionaire JT Lance, Rhianna has no idea that her 'holiday' will include being stranded on a private island with Jonathan, an irritating but irresistibly handsome recluse. Or that she'll fall head over heels for the man.

Jonathan isn't happy to discover a drop-dead gorgeous redhead has invaded his island. But his anger soon turns to attraction. After one failed marriage, he has guarded his heart, but Rhianna's sudden appearance makes him yearn to throw caution to the wind.

To live fully in the present, Rhianna must resolve her own murky past, unravel the secret that haunts JT, foil the plans of a sleazy, blackmailing private investigator and help Jonathan find his muse. Only then can Rhianna find the love she's been searching for, and finally become...Lancelot's Lady.


"Romance, mystery, danger, black-mail, and twists and surprises, this tale contains them all… Despicable intentions threaten every character in this finely crafted tale of sweet tension…Lancelot’s Lady is a non-stop adventure combined with the agonizing struggle to not give in to the magnetism between them. Enticing. Fun." ―Midwest Book Review

"From the cold rocky shores of Maine to the extravagant mansions of Miami to a lush tropical island in the Bahamas, Cherish D'Angelo takes her heroine through a series of breathtaking romantic adventures that mirror the settings, often in surprisingly ironic ways.  A page turner in the best possible sense." ―Gail Bowen, author of the award-winning Joanne Kilbourn series

"Another brilliantly crafted novel by Cheryl Tardif [aka Cherish D'Angelo]...a beautiful love story rippling with suspense and just the right amount of sensuality." ―Emily Ross, aka Pauline Holyoak, author

"Cherish D'Angelo has got that mythical “voice” down to a fine art." ―Jennifer L. Hart, author of River Rats

"Lancelot's Lady is riveting. It holds on and won't let you go! Cherish D’Angelo’s descriptive powers are amazing. She summons up scenes like genies from bottles!" ―Susan J. McLeod, author of Soul and Shadow

"Which ereader do you want to buy (or have you bought) and why?"

I just started looking at ereaders in early September and started listening to audiobooks while exercising. I wanted a new mp3 player and realised that there is a big crossover price range between mp3 players and ereaders.

Anywho, I'd love to get the Sony Touch here in Oz. It looks lovely, has gotten rave reviews, and... is way out of my price range. :P I'll be quite happy, I think, with anything that has a good battery life, can play audio and has a clear screen.

great post - again ;)!

I want a Nook or the Kobo. I like the book cover displays and shelf and such.

LOL okay if I were to be totally honest. I want one of each popular ereader. I am a total gadget junkie.
Most women want flowers.. those are wonderful too.. but I want gadgets and software hehe.
