Rain Trilogy by Karen-Anne Stewart | Author Interview

Rain Trilogy Karen-Anne Stewart 

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis book 1:

Raina has tried to forget her past, forget the pain, but when she finds herself staring straight into the fury blazing in her ex-boyfriend's eyes, her dark past comes rushing back. Furious with herself for actually having chosen someone like her father, she uses that anger to her advantage and fights for her life...and for her future that she prays will involve the man she can't seem to get out of her head. Kas is a natural leader, a fierce  fighter, the type of man you send in when you need to get the job done. He is a courageous hero who is used to risking his own life to save others, but can he save the one who has captured his heart from her horrific past and the men who are hell-bent on destroying her? As Kas and Raina try to navigate through the twists and turns of a deviously intelligent human trafficking group, they find solace in each other's arms. Can they infiltrate the trafficker's tight ring, saving the innocent lives from imminent danger before it's too late?

Synopsis book 2:

Shattered when Raina runs after his marriage proposal, Kas is hell-bent to find her and bring her home, where she belongs. He will bend every law necessary to do so, willing to do anything to protect Raina from her demons and the men who haunt her, going as far as placing his career and life on the line to save hers. Raina will give up everything she has worked so hard to achieve, even flee the country to keep Kas from the wrath and powerful reach of her abusive father.
In the midst of the FBI team closing in on the Ghost, another ghost from Raina's past taunts her, promising that she will be his. Meanwhile, a different trafficking ring is gaining strength in New Jersey. Michael solicits Raina's help, needing her smooth, sultry voice to win the audition for the new singer in the ring leader's swanky night club. Raina knows her life is in jeopardy with the dangers of being undercover, but she is blindsided when she discovers that it's her heart that is threatened with a mortal blow. 

Raina tries to heal from the nightmares of her dark past as the grisly bodies of innocent victims surface when the team gets closer to discovering the identity of the man responsible for the infuriatingly clever and powerful slavery ring. When Raina finally comes face to face with the Ghost, he quickly engulfs her in a twisted game of cat and mouse, delivering a veiled threat as he slips through her fingers. As the ghosts of her past and present ensnare her in their deadly web, Raina realizes the danger has just begun.

Synopsis book 3:

Finally able to put her harrowing past to rest, Raina looks forward to her future with Kas, but the Ghost has other plans. As the FBI team gets closer to taking down the largest human trafficking ring in the modern world, the Ghost begins a wicked game, making Raina the pawn and the target. Never before encountering a worthy adversary, he's fascinated by Raina and is enjoying the refreshing challenge of her intellect.
The danger ignites to a blazing new level, and Kas struggles between the need to finally exorcise the Ghost and his need to protect his wife. Tension mounts as an internal battle wages, tormenting Kas as he watches Raina put her all into taking down the man responsible for horrific sex slavery and gruesome deaths. When a new player takes control, Jefferson orders the end of the Ghost's game with Raina, which results in one final, devastating act, leaving Kas desperate and willing to do whatever it takes to save whatever means necessary.

Author Interview:
Are you more of an introvert or extrovert?

Thank you for having me today!  In real life, I’m a bit of an introvert, but when I write, I feel very liberated, so all the shyness just disappears!  My friends love to tease me just to watch my face flame; I light up like Christmas. 

Do you have a book boyfriend and if so, who is it?

This is such a hard question because I have so many of them!  I love the hero types who fall in love with strong female characters!  I just can’t get enough of those stories ;).

Favorite drink while working?  

Anything with caffeine! 

Cliffhangers or no cliffhangers? (do you like to use them)

I don’t mind cliffhangers if I can get my hand on the next book immediately.  Readers, you are forewarned; The Rain Trilogy has cliffhangers, but I promise I wrapped up the third novel nicely and they are all three available now, so you can stop cussing me after the second ending ;). 

Music/TV or Silence? What are you listening to while your write?

I listen to music all the time, especially when writing!  I have such a varied taste but my ‘go to’ groups while writing The Rain Trilogy were Imagine Dragons, Daughtry, Nickelback, and Matchbox Twenty.  Music is an amazing inspiration to me!

What is your guiltiest pleasure? No judging here on Chapter Break.

Honestly, it’s getting lost in a great book with a glass of sweet wine!  OHHH, and chocolate, lots of it.   

What is the best best advice you ever received?

Stay true to yourself.  It’s short and simple but so profound.  This advice has helped me throughout my entire life, especially with my latest novel, Ash to Steele.   

What is one thing you do better at than most?

I wouldn’t say that I do it better than most, but I can entertain myself very well; I’m so easily amused and appeased!  The simplest of things can keep me occupied anywhere. 

What is one thing that you do worse at than most?

I suck with directions; I mean really, really suck!  Oh, this should also be the answer for what I do better than most; I can get lost anywhere, even the town I grew up in.  I got lost twice within one week recently. 

Last words or words of encouragement? Anything else we would love to know?

Don’t give up on your dreams, no matter how old or young you are.  If you have always wanted to do something, go for it.  Throw your heart and soul into your dreams and never give up.  Thanks again for having me!  A huge thanks to the readers as well.  I hope you fall in love with Kas and Raina.
