Rachel Wade Guest post

Author Rachel Wade was kind enough to stop by the blog today and give us a little insight into who Carter and Dean are. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did.

Book Boyfriend Snapshots: Carter and Dean from Preservation


Age: 25

City and State: Seattle, WA

A Cross Between: Patrick Dempsey, Bradley Cooper, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Love Interests: Kate Parker (the leading lady) and Crystal (one of Dean’s not-so groupie

Description: Two class-clown musicians and partners in crime with a penchant for
geekdom. Hopelessly in love with Kate. Play in a band called The Hellions. Kate’s loyal
best friends and Pike Place Market grocery shopping partners. Goofy to the core. Hearts of
gold. Mischief in the flesh.


Dean – “Well, in the meantime, Carter and I have been discussing the matter of Ryan. Just
hear me out. You have options. I have an Italian uncle. He'll make sure Ryan is sleeping
with the fishes by next week. Either that, or we can go all Sweeney Todd on him.”

Dean – “Do you have any idea how many sharks are out there, just chillin’, waiting to get
their chompers on fine, unsuspecting tourists such as ourselves?”

Carter – “I’ll let you know if we win. You’ll know if we do. I’ll be the one streaking on Pike

Carter – “You crazy-ass woman. A monkey is so much cooler than an island.”

Preservation by Rachael Wade is now available in paperback and Kindle e-book from If you love paranormal romance and fantasy, also check out Rachael’s other
books, Amaranth and The Gates (books 1 and 2 of the Resistance Trilogy) now at Amazon.


Fear is sabotage’s sweetest weapon.

Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades,
and definitely no time for hot college professors
who are full of themselves and smitten with her.
Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t
afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing
she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s
complicated baggage.

When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative
writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself
captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His
cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction,
and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander
any odds in her favor.

But underneath Ryan’s abrasive facade is something to behold, and she can’t stay
away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight
against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia,
vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t
pummel their efforts first.
