Overview

How can you find love when you don't know what it looks like?

Naked in the Rain is the story of 47-year old widow, Norah Edwards, who meets 23-year old James Ross in a bar in Montauk, New York, one lonely day in September. Norah takes James home, and he soon discovers that she has as many secrets in her past as she does scars on her back. Twist and turns abound, each passage building to a surprising crescendo in this sexy novel. James helps Norah pick up the pieces of her life as she aids him in finding a direction of his own.

"Debra Markowitz may just be the Jacqueline Susann of her generation. While her NAKED IN THE RAIN revolves around more simple lives than the entertainment industry's movers and shakers depicted in Susann tomes, Markowitz is no less sexy, bringing characters to life with a sensual style that almost makes you blush while reading. She doesn't foresake great storytelling for sex, but incorporates the two in such a compelling way that the phrase page-turner seems to take on new meaning." Bill Lieberman, In Touch Magazine

"This is a riveting first novel, a story of love and betrayal, of survival and triumph. Naked in the Rain is an inspirational story, at once triumphant and penetrating." Bruce Feinberg, BMF Studio

This book was a surprise and a pleasure to read. Debra Markowitz crafted a very strong heroine in Norah, who practically sets the pages on fire with her sensuality. I expected your typical romance, but this was so much more and I found myself reading it very late into the night. I can't wait to see what Debra has in store for her readers next! Beverly Fortune, Long Island Press

Read an Excerpt

He held her very protectively. Something in this woman made him want to take care of her. He guessed what you felt about Norah determined the kind of man you were. Either you responded to her by wanting to protect her or by knowing you could step on her spirit and do unmentionable things to her. She was strong, but she was also so vulnerable. He knew she felt alone like he did most of the time. He wanted to tell her he loved her, but he couldn't. Just as Norah was afraid to let go, that she would lose herself, he was afraid to lose himself to her.

'Naked in the Rain,' is Markowitz's first novel, and should be considered a triumph. It's the story of fourty something Norah Edwards, who brings home James, a young 20 something stud, from a bar one night. In addition to their sexual relationship, the two become fast friends each providing something the other has been desperately seeking. For Norah, James is the rock..he listens as she attempts to explain and confront the ghosts of her past. For James, Norah is the motivated woman who helps him find direction in his own life. Ultimately, one could call 'Naked in the Rain,' a romance. It IS romantic, yet not sappy. It's also very sexual and sensual, but not too erotic. It's a nice mix of romance, suspense and sadness. It's filled with secrets and surprises, and will keep you hooked until the last page.

I loved Debra's book and am truly looking forward to the next one. It was romantic without being sappy, erotic without being obscene and it has just enough unpredictability, which always makes a story that much more enjoyable. There were tender moments filled with passion and some filled with fear and cruel brutality. I see it as one woman's story of her relationships, the struggle for her survival and the triumph of finding herself in the process.
