Escape To Love by Emma Calin: Guest Post




Thank you so much Laurie for letting me visit your blog as part of my Launch Tour for ESCAPE TO LOVE, my new 'novelette' that came out on the 4th February.  I would like to offer a giveaway to your readers – thee Kindle Edition of the book complete with the 1 hour 20 minute audioboook (MP3 download).  Leave your details below on the Rafflecopter draw below and the winner will be notified on the 1st March 2013.  Good luck.


Book Synopsis


A mother alone, on the run from her past. A bullied child with special needs. The last thing they need is another problem. Trapped in a net of fear, she has nowhere to turn. Her child is missing as desperate events sweep her own life aside.  Can she trust her judgment?  Could she ever trust again. Would you go to the limit if a man harmed your child?  Would you go even further for a man who had saved her life? 


ESCAPE TO LOVE  is a gritty urban suspense romance novelette launched this week for Kindle and other e-readers (with Amazon Kindle Reader Apps).  It is the third in Emma Calin's five-part urban series LOVE IN A HOPELESS PLACE (books four and five are due in late spring 2013).   Books 1 and 2 are called SUB-PRIME and THE CHOSEN.


As with the other books in the series, ESCAPE TO LOVE comes with a FREE  MP3 audiobook –  narrated by the author -  so you can choose to read, or sit back, relax and listen.  The book is available from Amazon worldwide at US$2.99, CAN$3.00, £UK1.89, €2.6.


Book Description:


Even in the barren wasteland of urban decay new green life is possible. In Nature and in Love, that which can be somehow finds a crack, a corner or ledge and grasps its chance of life.


A woman on the run from domestic violence with no one but her vulnerable and damaged teenage child as a companion, lives in isolation and fear. While her hand to mouth scenarios are played out in the shadow of a threatening suspense, a story of crime and love unfolds around her. She cannot risk her child. Her own longings for love and romance have to take a poor second place. When the fallout from a prison break, a hero rescue and a murder mystery crash through her door and into her need and loneliness, it is no longer a crime story. It is a question of when Love in itself is a crime and how far a woman will go in its name and for those she loves.
