A digital series shared among authors. It's a fun new publishing trend we've noticed. First some New Adult authors started with their Unfiltered series, then MJ Rose and Liz Berry tackled their version of 1001 Arabian Nights with a bevy of bestselling authors. And now five Crimson authors are on the scene with the Emerald Springs Legacy. They had us at the tagline, "romance flourishes in the lush organic farms of Emerald Springs, Washington, amidst sabotage, family fueds and rivalries, new and old." We're suckers for any sort of saga, so we wanted to know more about this five-book series. Below, each author has shared her favorite paragraph from her addition to the series. If you're hooked by the end — and we think you will be — be sure to enter our giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Adam’s Ambition by Monica Tillery (available February 3)
Zoe looked up at him, squinting into the sun, and paused for a beat, as though considering what to say next. “Sure, I guess it is weird seeing you after all this time. I was going to say I’m surprised it hasn’t happened before, but I guess I’m not. Not really. It’s not really surprising that the same guy who didn’t even bother to break up with me properly would avoid me during his visits home. The only real surprise is that it happened at all.
Colleen’s Choice by Holley Trent ( available March 3)
“I own about forty percent of this Eden. That’s part of the reason I’m here and not in Seattle where I had a life and friends other than the ones who live in the Internet.”
Chad’s Chance by Elley Arden ( available April 7)
When she threw open the door to the brew house, Jen froze. Earthy scents hit her nose, relaxing her raised-back posture, calming her pounding heart. She dropped her purse at the door’s threshold and stepped across, like a Catholic schoolgirl headed for confession.
Brewing was her religion; it cleansed her soul.
Daniel’s Decision by Nicole Flockton (available May 5)
Rochelle almost dropped the phone when Daniel burst through her door. She quickly finished up her conversation and hung up the phone.
“Mr Whitman this is a surprise, I don’t believe we have an appointment. Besides I have someone coming in a few min…” her voice trailed off as she realized just who her next appointment was. The smile that broke out over his face confirmed her suspicions. “You’re my next appointment aren’t you?”
Ashley’s Allgeiance by Robyn Neeley (available June 2)
Jacob touched her cheek with the back of his hand, flinging some mud away. That single stroke sent a shiver down her spine.
He leaned in and her mouth parted. Ashley’s inner voice sent her a blaring warning message.
Enemy’s lips are approaching. Move the hell back.
She ignored it.
