Five Secrets From Rachael Slate
Rachael Slate resides on the West Coast of Canada with her husband and two children—or as she likes to call them, her own little blended world. One of the best parts about sharing in her husband’s Chinese-Malaysian culture is definitely the food—and the awesome celebrations!
Rachael writes stories that blend the lines between mythology, reality, and fantasy. In her worlds, you’ll encounter strong, sexy alpha males and the capable women who challenge them. And always, scorching hot romance.
Hi Rachael, please tell us Five Secrets we may not know about Trancing the Tiger or you, but will after today!
1) Hi LA, Thanks for having me. I’m Canadian, so I use weird language (like the spelling of colour) and speak with a funny accent. Or so I’m told.
2) I started running because I am horribly uncoordinated and it’s the only sport I’m good at. No, really. I’ve only fallen once. I’ve kept on running because I love to bake (and eat baked goods) and it offsets the calories!
3) I recently spent a month in Southeast Asia researching for my series. And eating. Lots of eating. The food in Malaysia is so yummy! I think I should go for a run now…
4) Trancing the Tiger is the seventh book I’ve written. I’m planning to publish several more books in the near future!
5) One of the main locations in Trancing the Tiger is a temple known as Kek Lok Si. The first time I stepped foot inside, I fell in love with that gorgeous place. I knew I had to write about it someday, and so I did!
Delve into a world steeped in tradition and superstition…After her parents become infected with the Red Death, Lucy Yeoh flees to Malaysia seeking answers. Everything in this closed-off section of the world is paradise—from the lush tropical climate to her sexy new neighbor, Sheng…who just might be delusional. He claims the Plague God unleashed the Red Death and only a circle of Chinese Zodiac spirit animals can cleanse the Earth. Even more, he insists she’s one of them: the Rabbit. Long furry ears and fluffy bunny tail included.
He’ll show her how to fight to save the world…
As the Chosen of the Tiger, the burden of restoring balance to the world has fallen onto Li Sheng’s shoulders. When he discovers that the ally he’s long awaited, the Dragon, is actually just the Rabbit, Sheng is quick to dismiss Lucy. If only she’d stay dismissed. Lucy’s Rabbit refuses to cooperate, undermining the authority of his Tiger at every turn…and seducing him to the limits of his darkest desires. He’s not supposed to want her. Not when he needs the spirit circle complete and she’s their weakest link.
She’ll show him a love worth fighting the world to save…
Sheng’s enemies draw closer, and not everyone wants Lucy alive. Together, they’ll have to navigate a treacherous world where a line between duty and their hearts has been drawn between them. They must either sacrifice one, or find a way to surrender to both.
