Everywhere and Nowhere

I have to admit, one of my favorite tropes is the heroine being kidnapped and swept off on a magical adventure. There's something really freeing about it. I know, that probably doesn't make any sense. She's kidnapped. How can that be freeing?

In life, we get so bogged down in choices and consequences that we don't often get to sit back and just enjoy what's happening. Yes, I doubt the heroine in these stories are really just sitting back and enjoying their adventure. But, as the reader, we kind of do.

Once the heroine is swept off, everything she does after that is a direct response to something that was out of her hands. She doesn't have to worry about paying her bills or doing the dishes or even if she remembered to turn off her stove. Well, I mean, she can worry about it but she can't let those worries keep her from having her adventure. She's being held captive by a dashing rake. She's going on this journey whether or not she can get the vacation time off from work.

Which is why I was so happy to read Rebecca Royce's newest book, Everywhere and Nowhere. It's everything I love about the heroine being kidnapped and swept off on an adventure and so much more. Want a peek?

Here's the blurb:

Hadley has only one dream—to see the giant squid, a creature that has always called to her. But when she is kidnapped from her expedition not only is her ambition threatened—so is everything science has taught her about what is possible.
Determined to save his princess from a fate stranger and more terrible than death, Hadrian has no qualms about using Hadley for his own ends. But he finds himself captivated by her enquiring mind and luscious body, and soon he is torn between saving his world and saving his woman.

A Romantica® fantasy erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published elsewhere as First Dimension.
