About the Author

Annie Rayburn is no stranger to the oddities of the writing life. Perhaps it was the hot Texas sun, or the long, lazy days of summer that fueled her vivid imagination. Whatever the muse, she grew up with scenes playing in her head and imaginary playmates taking over the show while she patted out mud cookies dotted with Chinaberries.
The stories she crafts today are decidedly more adult than the ones that involved Ken and Barbie. The scenes still play in her head, the characters argue with her right to craft their very existence, but she�s learned to harness their energies, showing them the way through the sensual haze to a love that will endure.

I loved it! I was hooked from the first emotionally charged scene until the end. Annie Rayburn has created a unique and fascinating culture and paranormal race with her Crainesians. I love the way she showed the intense chemistry that is part of her characters' biological makeup and I loved watching the characters move beyond that and achieve an even more intense emotional connection. The ending is especially moving and a fantastic payoff for both the characters and the reader. A must read!

Ms. Rayburn's tag line is "Sizzling romance that tugs at your heart." but Bittersweet Obsessions does more than sizzle. It's not your average jump-between-the-sheets read. This has a great story that makes you root for the characters and boy, are there plenty of hunky men to salivate over. Very enjoyable. Definitely worth the read!

Reviewed by Crystal Book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Bittersweet Obsessions is a story that puts a whole new story on finding your one true mate but you can never have them. Teriza is a strong woman and she has been given her grandmother’s house and decides that she needs to redo the ground work around the house. She goes to the best landscaper. All and behold she runs into her life-mate and he’s married. What’s a girl to do. She is a woman with good values so she tries to do the best thing and stay away. Teriza has a wonderful family. They aren’t perfect but whose family is? They send her away to a clinic to get help. There she runs into Paul. Paul has shut himself down for years because he’s wife died. For Crainesians you only have one life-mate. This was a really touching story. I couldn’t imagine finding my one true love and can’t have them. The author does a wonderful job bringing all the feelings into her words. You can feel the heart break, loneliness, and everything else that you would feel. I tried to put myself in her shoes and become her. I was just sitting back chearing Paul and Teriza on. Saying please just give it a try and maybe you could really find another mate. They both had to get over the past and all the hurt they had been through. I could feel the connection from the first time that they saw each other. I was also wondering how the author came up with the name Teriza? But all in all this was a wonderful story and very heart felt. The author did a wonderful job with everything. I will just warn you that the sex gets pretty hot. But hey it’s a romance so we all expect it. Enjoy reading.
