Official site of speculative fiction author Christine Rains


Cookies, cookies, and more cookies! It's time to celebrate the release of the final book in my urban fantasy series, TOTEM. All nine books are now available on Amazon. Nine. What was I thinking? I loved losing myself to that world, though. Yet I'm eager to move on to new things. I'm already writing the first draft of a new novel. So far there are eyeballs. Lots and lots of eyeballs.

I've teamed up with two other awesome authors, T.F. Walsh and A.A. Chamberlynn, and we've created a site to help promote and celebrate paranormal romance and urban fantasy books. Come check out Paranormal Candy. We'll be doing a ton of sales and giveaways throughout the year. It's a feast for the bookworm in you!

When my publisher closed its doors last year, I regained the rights to the nine novellas I had with them. I've re-released them exclusively on Amazon. If you like your romance a little naughtier and with a good dose of humor, these are for you.

Out Now

True Shifter (Totem #9)
The final book in the thrilling urban fantasy series, TOTEM.
Three sisters, seven totems, one chance to save the world..

Saskia Dorn can't bear to lose anyone else. But when the only man she's ever loved turns his back on her, she runs off to sacrifice herself to the totem quest.

With a disgusting kiss, a dying house spirit grants her the power to shift into any creature. Yet she has neither the time to train nor the imagination to utilize the gift to its fullest. How will she manage to defeat a villain who has mastered the ability and made her the person she is? Saskia only has a few freakin' hours to figure it out. After all, the fate of every shifter in the world depends on her victory.
