BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE (the Thomas Cresswell novella) synopsis reveal plus preorder links!

Screen Shot 2019-06-18 at 11.41.53 AM

BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE is up for pre-order on Amazon and B&N AND the synopsis has been revealed! it will be available on July 15th. 

read on below for the synopsis and FAQ.

Enigmatic, brooding, and darkly handsome, Thomas Cresswell has always been the one mystery Audrey Rose has never been able to fully solve. As brilliant partners in crime investigation, they understand each other perfectly…but as young lovers, their passionate natures have led to both euphoria and heartbreak throughout the Stalking Jack the Ripper series.

This novella features a collection of scenes that takes place during and after the pair’s horrifying Atlantic voyage in Escaping From Houdini. Experience new and familiar scenes from Thomas’s unique point of view, including an intensely personal look into his plea for Audrey Rose’s hand in marriage.

With a romance for the ages, Audrey Rose and Thomas reach the conclusion to their epic, irresistible partnership in their final adventure, Capturing the Devil.

FAQ:

BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE will be available as an ebook *only.* I’m not sure if my publisher will combine all of the bonus content/novellas at some point into a physical copy, as of right now, I don’t think there are any plans to do so. If you’d like to see that one day, definitely tell them on social media! Reader interest has a way of making magical things happen!

So far it’s up on Amazon, B&N, and Apple iBooks. (click for links)

If you preorder a copy, it gets emailed to you the day of its release (July 15th!)

This is the *second* Thomas novella. The first is called MEETING THOMAS CRESSWELL and is *only* available in mass market paperback editions of STALKING JACK THE RIPPER. 

Thank you for making it a B&N bestseller within the first few hours!!!

CapturingDevil_author tour

FAQ:

q: can i order a signed and personalized copy?

a: yes! you can preorder signed/personalized copies from any of my tour stops. contact the store for details on how.

q: do i need a ticket to attend one of the tour events?

a: this is a GREAT question to ask each store. (they all have different policies.)  

q: can i preorder a signed/personalized copy if i live outside of the US?

a: definitely! please check with the stores, but i know for a fact at least a few offer INTL shipping. 

q: will there be preorder prizes given out this year?

a: heck yes! we’re getting close to announcing what it will be, and i am SO excited!

q: will the preorder prizes be open INTL?

a: unfortunately, it’s not legal for a US publisher to open it internationally. like last year, my team is looking into ways of getting signed copies to readers outside of the US and also including the preorder prizes. (standard shipping rates usually apply, which is out of our control.)  

q: will you be touring outside of the US?

a: i am not able-bodied, so traveling is really hard for me, but i’d love to one day! 

q: will there be any special editions of CAPTURING THE DEVIL?

a: i’ve worked with a few book subscription boxes this year (and there will be signed copies), but i haven’t heard of any additional editions yet. i wrote the Thomas Cresswell novella—BECOMING THE DARK PRINCE (out in July!)—as bonus content that will be available to everyone.  

q: if i ordered one of the special edition book boxes, does that count as a preorder?

a: that’s a question for my publisher, and as soon as i find out, i’ll share more.

q: will there be a boxed set?

a: yes! there *is* a special edition of the boxed set (B&N’s will feature all four books signed, but they’re VERY limited!), plus i’m signing a gorgeous double-sided poster that will be exclusive to the boxed sets.

q: if we order a boxed set does that count as a preorder for CTD?

a: another fantastic question for my publisher! i don’t believe so since it has a later publication date, but will update on social media when i know for certain.

He brushed his thumb over my lower lip, his voice smooth and alluring in the dim light. “If the world thinks we’re heading straight to hell, we might as well enjoy the journey there. I’d much rather dance with the devil than sing with angels. Wouldn’t you?”

Without further ado, here’s the current jacket copy:

In the shocking finale to the bestselling series that began with Stalking Jack the Ripper, Audrey Rose and Thomas are on the hunt for the depraved, elusive killer known as the White City Devil. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse has them fighting to stay one step ahead of the brilliant serial killer—or see their fateful romance cut short by unspeakable tragedy.

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell have landed in America, a bold, brash land unlike the genteel streets of London they knew. But like London, the city of Chicago hides its dark secrets well. When the two attend the spectacular World’s Fair, they find the once-in-a-lifetime event tainted with reports of missing people and unsolved murders.

Determined to help, Audrey Rose and Thomas begin their investigations, only to find themselves facing a serial killer unlike any they’ve heard of before. Identifying him is one thing, but capturing him—and getting dangerously lost in the infamous Murder Hotel he constructed as a terrifying torture device—is another.

Will Audrey Rose and Thomas see their last mystery to the end—together and in love—or will their fortunes finally run out when their most depraved adversary makes one final, devastating kill?
