box set
(n.) a set of related items, typically books or recordings, packaged together in a box and sold as a unit.

How many times have you seen a box set advertised for sale?  In every case we can recall, the box set has either featured the same author showcasing multiple books from her own collection or multiple authors related only by genre.  We wanted to do something slightly different to create a collection of such outstanding value that readers couldn’t resist.

We took the first book in six multi-award winning Romantic Suspense series, added exclusive epilogues, and put them in a box set together. And then we priced it at $0.99!

The inspiration behind Dangerous Connections began with author Rachel Grant.  “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a box set that had all first in series books before and felt readers would enjoy getting a set of series starters.”  Grant quickly recruited (AKA hounded) authors Toni Anderson and Carolyn Crane, and the trio brainstormed not only who to include in the box set, but also what the finished product would look like. “We discussed how (aside from the first in series aspect) we could make this set different than all the other bundles on the market. I suggested we write bonus epilogues that connect our stories as a treat for our fans.”  Authors Elisabeth Naughton, Jill Sorenson, and Cate Beauman jumped at the idea of being a part of this new twist on box sets, and the list of authors was finalized.

In DANGEROUS CONNECTIONS readers will get a little extra happily ever after that has the added fun of placing all the stories in one world.

The Books:

STOLEN FURY - the double RITA-nominated book by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton

WILD by RITA nominated author Jill Sorenson
