Two New Book Contracts!

I’m happy to report that Boroughs Publishing has offered me contracts on two contemporary romances to release later in 2014; NATURALLY YOURS and HER IMMORTAL VIKING.

The first, NATURALLY YOURS, to release mid-2014, is a story about a paramedic and Iraq war veteran, Mickey Kendall, who is plagued by guilt over an incident in Baghdad. He dedicates his life at home to community rescue efforts because he believes he’s beyond redemption. When Mickey meets master chef Amanda Greer, she nourishes him with her unique culinary skills, and challenges him to face his demons and free himself from the binds of old wounds.

The second book, HER IMMORTAL VIKING, which releases late 2014, is an original contemporary fairy tale based on Norse Mythology. The story is about a celebrated Viking warrior who is deceived by his closest friend and cast into eternal servitude by an angry god. Gunnar is made immortal and is forced to live out his sentence in human servitude. When he meets Penelope Farnsworth in modern times, they fall in love and seek a way to free him.

Though all of my stories feature very different heroes, their commonality is their wounded hearts. The heroes in my books to date—a firefighter, cowboy, paramedic, and warrior have suffered tremendous loss emotionally and/or physically and must find the will to heal before committing to love. Once they have made the decision to fix what’s been broken, these men are fully able to love the strong, unique heroines who have come into their lives to love them in return.

My current hero, Treymont Woods, is a broken man in every sense of the word, and readers say they love him. KISSING HER COWBOY is an Amazon Top 100 Best-Selling Western and Short Romance. Many thanks to the readers and reviewers who have made this title a success. The story has received numerous 5 Star reviews that include kind, enthusiastic comments like these:

“Satisfying short stories are difficult to craft. I’m in awe of Adele’s ability to take what would otherwise be a little story and breathe life into it far beyond its length.” 5 Stars! ~Amazon Reviewer

“Romantic without being mushy, sensual without being graphic. Downs skillfully balances the pasts of both hero and heroine, making both believable." 5 Stars! ~Amazon Reviewer

“You can’t go wrong with Adele Downs.”5 Stars! ~Will Work for Books

I hope you, too, will give my books a try.
