    I couldn’t get into the first book because of what happened to the male lead and from what I have read of reviews of the second, it seems a bit more of the same. I know this is an irrational prejudice, but I am so ingrained in romancelandia that I can’t get buy into the sacrifice of characters for the good of the plot.

    Jane Jane Jane, if that was your problem, read the second book. Read it.

    And if that bothered you, you must have finished at least most of the first book, cuz doesn’t that happen towards the very end?

    I too offered to bear Lilith’s children. Joy warned me that I should only offer that to REALLY good authors. I assured her, Lilith is worthy.

    But I am consumed with jealousy that you have the second book before me. I may not recover.

    Nicole, you are so right. Its not that i couldn’t get into it, it was that I was so upset at the end. And I read your review of the new book and you say that more tortuous things happen to the characters in the new book. I don’t know if my tender little heart can handle that kind of ending and torture. 🙁 I’ll thnk about it between now and September.

    […] I did worry that Dead Man Rising wouldn’t be as good as the first Dante Valentine book, Working For The Devil, but I shouldn’t have. Angie’s right. […]

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
