Yay! Doing the happy dance over that review. 🙂

Read it here:

I’m working on another story set in the same world, featuring Jackson from Red Rio Blue – who seems to have wowed the crowd– a new female bartender at the Rio Blue who discovers he’s much more than he appears…

How’s that for a teaser?

This Friday I’ll be playing guest blogger at BookWenches! Come hear me ramble incoherently about one of my favorite topics, macroeconomics and the marginal rate of transformation!

Nah, I’m talking about Kick-Ass Action Heroines. And a little bit about shoes. And Barbies. But mostly KAAHs. You can find me here

While you’re there, you can check out their kick-ass review of Red Rio Blue… (It’s midway down the page, December 17, 2009). It made me grin like a goofball 🙂

Red Rio Blue Releases November 10th

November 10, 2009

Finally the day arrives! My erotic romance Red Rio Blue has released from Loose Id. I’m very happy to be part of the Loose-Id family.


Marianna Lauren’s Red Rio Blue

Genre: Vampire Paranormal

Length: Novel

Aubrey Hunnisett, the owner of the successful nightclub the Rio Blue, is determined to buy out the Club Lunar, run by the dark and mysterious Michael Lennox. Michael is a vampire, and although he can feel intense mutual attraction arcing between them, he’s suspicious of Aubrey’s offer. Two tragic murders have thrown his club into rough financial waters.

Passionate sex fulfills her exhibitionist fantasies and gives Michael the chance to sift through Aubrey’s memories to see if she’s working for his hated enemy, the vampire Richard Sands. Though he discovers she’s not, his trip down her memory lane leads to its own batch of problems: he’s halfway to falling in love with her.

Aubrey’s a weakness his enemy can use, and does, dragging her into a vampiric conflict that’s more than a century old. But he’s underestimating Aubrey and her feelings for Michael.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Exhibitionism, violence.
