It was so much fun meeting some of you at Apollycon! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to stop by! I can't wait to see more of you in Melbourne this next week and I'm praying for warm weather so I can walk around in shorts! It hasn't been too bad here in Idaho but I'm ready for summer (so is Thor!).
It was a wild and crazy week but things have calmed down a lot, which is nice. I finally have the pre-order for Debase up and guys you do NOT want to miss this. If you've never read the Eagle Elite series THIS IS YOUR BOOK, it's book 1 in a brand new sexy suspense taking place in the EE world. So old readers will get closure but also see all their fave mafia men and women, and new readers will be introduced to the Italian and Russian mafia in a way that I think will leave everyone in LOVE with our resident Russian bad boy, Andrei Petrov!
Risky Play is also out as you guys know and I'm blown away by the incredible reviews and all the fun emails I'm getting from NEW readers *waves* thanks for joining us!
Right now I'm working on a book for my publisher and am also doing a few other projects (KPOP BOOK ANYONE?!). We are staying busy in the Van Dyken household and can't wait to fire up the grill!

DEBASE IS COMING SOON!
From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes the new book in the Elite Bratva Brotherhood series...
With blood on my hands, I held her.
With death in my soul, I took from her.
With the devil in my heart, I coveted her.
There're many definitions of Hell.
My list was exhaustive, my definitions tragic.
Tonight I was adding something new to the very top.
Girl number six thirty-two.
She arrived on my birthday, the same day, every year, I play Russian Roulette and pull the trigger.
She was my omen.
My end game.
She made it personal.
And for the first time in my life, I gave in.
A virgin mob boss with no soul.
My name is Andrei Petrov.
They call me the devil.
All I want is for the pain to end.
All she wants is for me to share it.
I am the last remaining heir to a dynasty that should burn in Hell.
And my last wish remains for it to die with me.
**All books in the Eagle Elite Series/Elite Bratva Brotherhood are Standalones about different couples. This book is technically book one in a brand new Russian/Italian mafia series that takes place in the Eagle Elite world... this is Andrei Petrov's story. If you're an Eagle Elite fan, this is the continuation of the series with a brand new spinoff into the Russian world, so no worries all your fave guys are still there, we're just expanding the family a bit!**
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken…
Two words I can't really get out of my head.
She left us.
Three more words that make it that much worse.
Three being another word I can't seem to wrap my mind around.
Three kids under the age of six, and she left because she missed it. Because her dream had never been to have a family, no her dream had been to marry a rockstar and live the high life.
Moving my recording studio to Seaside Oregon seems like the best idea in the world right now especially since Seaside Oregon has turned into the place for celebrities to stay and raise families in between touring and producing. It would be lucrative to make the move, but I'm doing it for my kids
because they need normal, they deserve normal. And me? Well, I just need a break and help, that too. I need a sitter and fast. Someone who won't flip me off when I ask them to sign an Iron Clad NDA, someone who won't sell our pictures to the press, and most of all? Someone who looks absolutely nothing like my ex-wife.
That was my first instinct when I saw the notorious Trevor Wood, drummer for the rock band Adrenaline, in the local coffee shop. He ordered a tall black coffee which made me smirk, and five minutes later I somehow agreed to interview for a nanny position. I couldn't help it; the smaller one had gum stuck in her hair while the eldest was standing on his feet and asking where babies came from. He looked so pathetic, so damn sexy and pathetic that rather than be star-struck, I took pity. I knew though; I knew the minute I signed that NDA, the minute our fingers brushed and my body became insanely aware of how close he was—I was in dangerous territory, I just didn't know how dangerous until it was too late.
Until I fell for the star and realized that no matter how high they are in the sky—they're still human and fall just as hard.
Even one-night stands deserve a second chance in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken's novel of sporting desire.
What else can a virgin do when she's ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.
Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he's blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They're both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more
than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who's playing his own games. And he's not afraid to get dirty.
Now there's only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they've told, the secrets they've kept, the mistakes they've made, and the attraction that still burns between them.

Come and Join Us in The Elite Lounge on Facebook!
Announcing The Elite Lounge! A monthly subscription group by yours truly where you get to go behind the scenes on writing days (courtesy of my author cam), watch your favorite authors do carpool karaoke, have date night with them while they share recipes and cook live while you watch and follow their lead! We also have fun fitness Fridays where our nutritionist and trainers come in and answer burning questions plus give worksheets and advice on how to get started! And we have our resident doctor, Dr. Byrne popping in throughout the week. Let's not forget Max Mondays where your very own crazy Max Emory gives life and dating advice through video shorts while Hades chews on his pack of underwear. It's not weird if you make it weird.
So why a subscription group? Well it's technically still in it's beta stages with Facebook but it's a way for you guys to see content you want to see that's directed and specialized for YOU. This isn't a promo group or a takeover group, it's a community focused on books and togetherness. Think of it as a hybrid Facebook group where you don't just get all the books (though you do get to beta read an entire series for me and help me outline each book and character). It should be more, I want it to feel like family to you guys, a safe place, like I said, a community. Since it's so new we are open to suggestions on content you want to see, it has to be exclusive, so go wild with your suggestions!
The first week is free and then it starts charging $4.99 a month, the price of a cup of coffee. If you're a budding author this is the PERFECT group for you as I'll be posting weekly writing challenges, marketing advice, and worksheets ;) What better way to hone your craft then being surrounded by other authors and READERS who can give you feedback?
