This is the official website of speculative fiction author, Christine Rains.


My newly designed website. What do you think? Xan the dragonslayer is more than happy to show you around. And by more than happy, I mean only slightly less irritated than any of the other characters I considered featuring on the site.

The first book in my hilarious and geeky series, Dice & Debauchery, has been released. Loose Corset is avaliable in all formats. Please join me for my geeky tours all January and enter my giveaways for a chance to win a Christine Rains six-sided die.

Have you seen my gorgeous cover for Of Blood and Sorrow? I'll be self-publishing my urban fantasy novel early in 2015. For those of you who liked the 13th Floor series, you're going to love this one.

Out Now

Loose Corset

A weekend away at a convention is exactly what overworked student Morgan needs. Dressed as her character from her favorite online game, Morgan is braced—seriously, could her corset be tighter?—to meet the other players. As Lady Gyrfalcon, she’s ready for everything—except her intense attraction to Dean. A clandestine meeting in the hallway of the hotel and Morgan’s corset is looser but now she can’t breathe for entirely different reasons.

Utterly charmed, Morgan decides to roll the dice and indulge in a fantasy-worthy weekend of sexy roleplaying, scorching sex and life-altering orgasms. Still, through it all Morgan is too smart to believe the chemistry constantly stripping her of costumes and control can last more than the length of the convention. But if she wants to keep a relationship so intense she thought it only existed in fiction, she’s going to have to let go of her cool-headed logic and allow herself to fall far and fast for the perfect guy.

Coming Soon

Of Blood and Sorrow.

Erin Driscol works the perfect job consoling fellow demons by feeding off their grief at Putzkammer & Sons Funeral Home.

When fledgling vampire Nicolas Reese comes to Erin for help, she learns the truth behind the legends and hides him from his sire and the vampire hunters who seek him. But when the Putzkammers begin to die one by one, Erin is caught between her act of kindness and the need to save her adopted family. Only by facing her own personal demons can she stop the slaughter and still rescue Nicolas from his dark fate.
