One, breathtakingly hot, passion-filled, night ignites a fire in his soul. Everything in his world should be nothing short of perfection…but he is Rainer Lawson.
His wild evening with Emily is the Realm’s front-page story. Could he have lost the respect of the man that has been like a father to him? Could his family’s hard-earned fortune really dissolve before his very eyes?
Evil rapidly cinches its chokehold, and everything his father fought and died for threatens to implode. Rainer attempts to protect those that he loves and satisfy the fiery passions between he and Emily, but everything in his world is spinning wildly out of control. His desire to prove himself could very well be his undoing.
Sometimes the best of intentions are not enough, but perhaps it is the trials by fire that make the man. Steel sharpens steel, and the passions burn white hot in “Lessons Learned.”
Twenty Questions With Jillian
Author Jillian Neal has agreed to play “20 Questions” with us today. She will answer yes or no to the questions we come up with about her “Realm.” We’re going to let Jillian have 4 skips because we don’t want to give too much away. Ok, here we go…
Will we ever get to find out the identity of Adeline’s father? – Yes
Is it Dominic Wretchkinsides? – Skip
Chief of Iodex Dan Vindico seems to be such a hard, driven character. Will we get to find out why he is the way he is? –Yes
Will we ever get to see Vindico not so angry? – Yes
So far the series has focused primarily on Rainer and Emily. Will all eight books of the series be about them/told from Rainer’s POV? – No
We love Sam. Will we see more of him and hear more of his words of wisdom? – Yes, of course!
All of the Haydenshire brothers seem to be fairly straight laced. Do we ever find out why Garrett is such a wild playboy? – Yes, but not in this series
Will Garrett and Chloe Sawyer ever end up together? – Skip
Will we get to know any of the other Arlington Angels better? – Yes
After the events in “Lessons Learned” are we finally done with “Uncle Stan?” – No

You’ve discussed the Gifted Realm of the United States. Will we ever see Realms outside of the U.S.? – Yes, in the next book actually
Will Vera Wang design Emily’s wedding gown? – No
You’ve told us repeatedly that the eight books of this series are already written. After those are published, is the story over and done or do we get more of your “Realm?” – No it isn’t over and done. I’m working on the third series involving the Gifted people.
