Meet the Author

Raine has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland paperback at the tender age of thirteen. She thinks it was The Flame is Love from 1975. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop reading romance novels 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 tall, dark and handsome hero never goes out of fashion. Never! A former teacher turned full- time writer of sexy romance stories, is how she fills her days. Raine has a 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 have never asked to read any. (Raine is so very grateful about this.) She loves to hear from readers and chat about the characters in her books. You can connect with Raine on Facebook or visit her at www.RaineMiller.com to see what she's working on now.

I have been in love with Ethan and Brynne since I first read Naked! I have since read and reread all of the books in this series in preparation for this final installment. Raine did not disappoint. This book tied up all of the loose ends and made me love the Blackstone family even more! I love Raine's style of writing! I heartily recommend Rare and Precious Things to all lovers of romance.

This book was a surprise, and a very good one I must say. I did not think there would be a fourth book about Brynne and Ethan, so it was a treat to read it. It is as beautifully written as any of Miller's books and it feels like a long epilogue. Except that many things happen along the way that really bring resolution to all issues brought up in the previous books of the Blackstone Affair and there are no more loose ends from the main characters' pasts. It was simply delightful. I am going to miss these characters.

From the very first book, I was an Ethan fan. All the way through he showed time and time again just how much he loved and cared for what was his!

I just finished listening to the audiobook version of Rare and Precious Things, the fourth book in the Blackstone Affair series. I have read the other books in the series on my Kindle, but decided to splurge and get book four as an audiobook; what a fantastic time I had listening to the continuing love story of Brynne and Ethan!  To hear Ethan's voice with the British accent captured my image of him as a romantic and smoking character.  This book is my favorite of the series and so appreciate the way author Raine Miller crafted life challenges that both Brynne and Ethan faced. Readers love happily ever afters (HEA) and the author delivered a beautiful one.  I plan to get the other three books in the series on audiobook besides reading the upcoming prequels to the Blackstone series.  Thank you, Raine - this series is one of my favorites ever!

I stumbled onto this book by accident. I really thought Eyes Wide Open (#3) was the last series. Thank you so much Ms. Miller for book #4 (Rare & Precious Things). I so love Ethan....I speak for myself....but I'm sure there are a few of us out there that wish we had an Ethan Blackstone. Loved Ethan and Brynne HEA (Happily Ever After. Again, many many thanks Ms. Miller. I'm about to purchase Cherry Girl as I love the way your bring these characters to life for me.

I love books that delve into the psyche that show the innate goodness in people Ana what understanding and patience as well add the willingness to let go can do for people.

Sigh! I feel like my world is complete after finishing Rare and Precious Things. We finally get to the heart of Ethan's past and he works to move forward from his pain. Brynne works to embrace marriage and motherhood but still has to cope with her horrific past. As they both deal with issues from their pasts some doubt is created about their love for each other. Will they learn to communicate? Of course, something drastic happens and Ethan gets put in a situation that allows him to truly see what is important. Raine Miller gives us a great balance of both POV's as we move through these new challenges and watch them find the happiness they both deserve.

This was a wonderful ending to this story. You get to read about their honeymoon about after honeymoon the day to day difficulties they have at being a new couple. As the reader you get to have answered questions about their past and why did things happen. And of course you get to be there for the birth of their baby. But what was the best for me it was that the book didn't end with the baby's birth you actually got to see a little of what their lives was after the baby was born.

Be still my heart Raine Miller! I have been with you though this entire series again, one I just stumbled upon and then ended up reading the entire series!! Then I had to wait…. and guess what! IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT!!! I LOVED this book! Ebook RAPTFabulous, Fantastic, A total Ace! Rare and Precious things was a culmination of Brynne & Ethan’s time together, a beautiful finale to their journey! We begin this book with Brynne & Ethan’s wedding. I love that they are finally getting their happily ever after in this book! Granted it doesn’t come with out hardships that fall upon them. As old ghost make themselves front and center once again, not only does Brynne have to put the past to rest, but Ethan also find a way to put it to rest for good. And they both find their way even though it’s in a way you would least expect. I love that the ever stoic, unflappable Ethan Blackstone is nervous, and I mean totally nervous about the birth of is … see you thought I would tell you. Nope you will have to read to find out that little gem of information! I just LOVED this book, I’m pretty sure this book hang-over will last a while. Its an amazing finish to and amazing couple, and I enjoyed every bit of their journey!! ¿Jammie
