Guest Post: Rachel Carrington, Author of Extreme Measures


What If? By Rachel Carrington

My beta reader posted a comic on her Facebook page the other day which you can see below. After you read it, think about it for a second. What it that was really true? Which character would you like to be? Out of all the stories you’ve ever read, which one would you want to be immersed in forever?

I used to think I’d want to be in Emma or anything in the Regency period, but then I remembered what I know about that time period, you could put in a thimble. I think I’d like to be in a place where I could still use the knowledge I’ve learned in my 21st century life. Maybe milling around with Christine Feehan’s Carpathians? I don’t think I would mind being trapped in a world with Darius from Dark Fire as long as I got to be Tempest.

But as much fun as that sounds, I also have to remember life is a bit rough for those characters. There’s peril and drama around every corner, and that’s okay for the couple of hours it takes me to read the book. But would I want it to go on infinitely? Would you?

So if you had to choose a character’s life, whose would it be? Out of all of the lives in between the pages of millions of books, whose life would you be willing to trade yours for?

About Extreme Measures, my latest book release

Four years ago Erin’s life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband, Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he’d arrested Stuart, but she’d been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain.

Now Matt is back, but it isn’t to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary. But Stuart is a desperate man, and desperate men will do anything to get what they want.

Thrown together by treacherous circumstances, Matt and Erin fight a battle to stay alive and possibly figure out how to put the pieces of their destroyed lives back together again.

Available now from, All Romance eBooks, and Barnes and Noble. Coming soon in audiobook!

About Me

I started writing years ago, and my first attempt was a contemporary romance that will never see the light of day. I think I may even have thrown it away by now. It was absolutely horrific as I knew nothing about well…anything to do with writing.

After that, I started writing fantasy romances about wizards and wizards, and once those took off, I segued to paranormal romances (hello, vampires and ghosts) and romantic suspense. I also write articles for various magazines, including The Writer’s Journal, Writer’s Magazine, Writer’s Weekly, Writing for Dollars, Absolute Write, and Funds for Writers.

I’m fortunate to make my home in historical Charleston, South Carolina. Beautiful city. Beautiful people. When I’m not writing, I love to read, create videos, keep Target in business, play visitor in my city, and drink lots of coffee.

You can find me all over the internet, but here are just a few of the places:
