I am honored to announce that A DARK LURE has been selected by Amazon editors as a Kindle First pick for the month of June! And not just in the U.S., but in the U.K. and Australian markets as well. This means readers in those countries can read A DARK LURE early, from June 1, one month before its official release, for a special low price, or for free as an Amazon Prime member (in the US and UK). It also allows those early readers to leave reviews before the forum opens to anyone else.

From the Editor
As an editor, I occasionally find an author with talent so remarkable that it would be a disservice not to share that talent with readers. Loreth Anne White is such an author.
Her newest novel, A Dark Lure, presents a well-crafted, deeply atmospheric psychological thriller that pushes the boundaries of romance. A heinous villain—a stomach-turning serial killer—returns years later to hunt his lone survivor, a woman who bears the scars of her narrow escape. This chilling tale defies our expectations of a traditional romance novel because first and foremost it’s a survival story.
But it’s a survival story made possible because of love, in many shades. Love for oneself. A parent’s love for a child as well as a child’s love for both a parent present and a parent departed. And the tenuous, unlikely romance between a scarred woman and a differently scarred man who sees her light within, both of them made stronger by a shared understanding of love lost.
While Loreth’s all-too-human characters journey through uncomfortable and deeply troubling psychological terrain, hope shines through the shadows, rippling across the twisty narrative. This masterful writer uses the hunter resolutely stalking its prey not only as a plot element, but also as a metaphor to set the story’s pace, making the reader feel like a fish on the line. It’s a truly talented author who compels her reader to want to be reeled in—slowly, skilfully, exquisitely.
