The fourth part in the New York Times bestselling series, The Blackstone Affair: A bright beginning for two damaged souls fighting for their hard-won love, and the promise of a new hope to secure their happily ever after.

Fresh from an idyllic honeymoon along the Italian coast, the Blackstones prepare for the birth of their precious baby and the challenges of settling into a new home. But things get complicated when specters from the past reappear to threaten the very foundation of their relationship. Ethan and Brynne will have to fight harder than ever for each other. Rare and Precious Things is the story of two people who both need the other in order to be complete, but learn just how "rare" their brand of love is when they have to risk everything in order to hold onto it.

Yay! I was so excited for this book! Mucho thanks to The Book Avenue Crew for organizing this blog tour. If you're new to the Indie Author scene, Raine Miller's Blackstone Affair series is a definite must-read. I have been a Raine Miller fan since I first read Naked. Rare and Precious Things takes place after the suspenseful events of Eyes Wide Open. Ethan and Brynne's wedding finally takes place and I loved it! The entire thing was a romantic's wet dream! Vividly described and quite a scintillating wedding night scene between the two lovebirds had me blushing! The rest of the honeymoon was spent on the  Italian Riviera. A new character is introduced and I'm going to keep my eyes on that one; he's dangerous in a playboy sense. After a short period of marital bliss, our lovely couple finds themselves threatened once more by specters from the past. When will our favorite couple finally find some peace?!?!?! This book was a great addition to the Blackstone Affair series and I hope there's more to come from Raine's great storytelling.

Ethan and Brynne are on their honeymoon

Icy drops falling onto my back brought me out of my floaty walk down memory lane. Ethan must have returned with my drink. I opened an eye and looked up at him blocking the sun from my body, not appreciating his shocking greeting, and taking in the stern expression on his face. God, he was a such beautiful man with his hard lines of muscle and golden skin. I could look at him for years and never be content with the looking. And the complete unconcern with what others might think of him made whatever the hell he was throwing off all the more attractive. Ethan was no pretty boy who got satisfaction from fawning admirers. And they were frickin everywhere. And not only women either. Plenty of men admired my husband too.

He was oblivious to it all. And he is all mine, people!

“What did you bring me, Mr. Blackstone?”

He ignored my question. “Time for more sun block, you’re getting a tad pink.”

“You’re just saying that so you can roam your hands all over me,” I said.

He dropped down next to my towel, raised a sexy eyebrow and gave me 'the look'. “You’re fucking right about that, my beauty.”

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A part-time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.
