Ceremony of Seduction

Today is my very first blog post as an Aphrodisia author. Talk about an honor! There are so many talented authors writing for this line, that it's a humbling experience to be a newbie among their ranks :) I got to meet several of these talented ladies at RWA Nationals a few weeks ago, and they are all as kind, welcoming and fun to party with as you might imagine from reading their books :)

For today, I want to share with everyone my new book, CEREMONY OF SEDUCTION, which will officially release on July 31st, but which has already been sighted in some Borders around the country, and even from one reader in the UK.

Yes, as you can see, the cover gods were extremely kind! And yes, the sensual waterfall scene is an actual scene out of my book.

You can head on over to my website or MySpace page to read an excerpt and see the terrific book video that was designed by Scrap Fairy designs. To say the least - both are just as HOT as the book :) So have a cool drink and some hot company handy, if possible!

Since I'm new here, I'll tell you a little bit about myself. Like most writers, I've been writing since I was small, but other than the 6th grade play I wrote and performed in "The Embarrasing Moments of Santa Claus," I never seriously pursued publication until 2003. That was the point in which my husband told me to stop talking about it and get off my butt and go do it. :)

I could still kiss him for giving me that boot in the tush, because it made me sit down and write an actual novel. I sold that novel in October 2004, and haven't looked back. That first novel also recently won the Romantic Times reviewer's choice award for best Small Press Contemporary Paranormal for 2006.

Since then, I've published several paranormal romances, but CEREMONY OF SEDUCTION is my first forray into erotic romance. And oh, what a forray that was :) Talk about pushing boundaries! And I enjoyed every steamy page, and hope you do too. So mark your calendars for next Tuesday and go grab your own copy!

Here's what some of the reviewer's had to say:

4 Stars from Romantic Times BookReviews - "This is an incredibly creative read with likable characters. If you're looking for a sexy escape, you'll find it here. Ryan has crafted a sensual story that leaves nothing to the imagination."

5 Cups from Coffee Time Romance - "Ceremony of Seduction is the perfect erotic read with just the right touch of paranormal. Ms. Ryan’s Ceremony of Seduction positively sizzles and is not to be missed!"

4 Stars from Night Owl Romance - "Ceremony of Seduction is a captivating love story of magic and sex that will take you to new levels of sexual bliss. It's loaded with hot erotic sex that left me hot and bothered and I never wanted it to end. It's a great read that I highly recommend for hours of sizzling entertainment."

Talk to you next month!!
