Since the book that was originally slated to be released in May 2018 has been pushed back, I figured I would fill the gap by self-publishing a book I originally wrote ten years ago for now-defunct Ravenous Romance. MIND GAMES was the first real Romance Novel I wrote, and the reviews and immense positive reactions to it from the romance community were a big part of why I dove into writing romance almost exclusively for the past ten years.
I’ve revised the manuscript some, adding a new prologue and adjusting a couple of scenes to make some things that I downplayed a bit more obvious. (In particular I brought out the fact the heroine is half-Asian/half-white a bit more explicitly.) All the sex is still there, of course. :-)
And of course a new cover.

When your stalker can enter your dreams, there’s nowhere to hide.
Ever since she foresaw the death of her parents, Wren Delacourt has suppressed her latent psychic abilities. Avoiding strong emotions, Wren leads a placid but lonely life until her quiet is shattered by her sister Abby going missing… and the private investigator searching for her.
Derek Chapman isn’t what Wren expects. He’s young, handsome, and immediately protective of her. Wren is attracted to him right away, but fears that deepening any connection with Derek—emotional, spiritual, or sexual—will open the floodgates locked in her mind.
A mystery man appears in Wren’s dreams, dealing pain and pleasure. Is Wren’s subconscious warning her away from Derek, or longing for him? When the search for Abby leads to a secret sex club, it seems fate is pulling Wren into Derek’s arms, whether she is ready or not.
PRAISE FOR MIND GAMES:
“Tan has written a truly engrossing and all out hot story that twists the norm into something totally unexpected… It’s great. You’ll be riveted to your seat until you finish the story.” — Roxane Rhoads, reviewed in Fangtastic Books (author of Paranormal Pleasures)
“Prepare yourself to be blown away. Reading this book will draw you into a world of telepathy and mental control that will change any prior beliefs you had in such abilities. Wren and Derek are a couple that are aligned in ways that are unheard of. To say they clicked is an understatement. The plot is suspenseful and gripping. The reader is taken along a path with twists and turns and unexpected events that lead to a stunning conclusion. Ms. Tan weaves a wonderful story of love, risk and leaps of faith that are unparalleled in the world of romantic suspense.” — You Gotta Read Reviews
“Tan writes with her usual melodic prose combining engaging characters with a deftly plotted treat for the senses.”–Patricia’s Vampire Notes
“Mind Games is brisk, fast-paced, ironic and completely sexy. The writing is crisp and concise with characters any reader can easily identify with. The point of view never jumps, and the scenes are well described and packed with delicious adjectives. Writing premonitions, visions or even telepathy is a challenge for any author while maintaining the story flow and not confusing the reader. Mind Games pulls this off beautifully. There is never any uncertainty for the reader and I must award the author “TWO THUMBS” way up on a job well done!”–Whipped Cream reviews, 5 cherries
“Ms. Tan is going to blow readers away with Mind Games! Superb from beginning to end, I discovered new faith in the paranormal erotica genre. … Fans of Ms. Tan’s erotica will rejoice at her venture into the paranormal world. This was such a treat for me… I certainly hope this won’t be Ms. Tan’s only foray into the paranormal world because Mind Games is definitely an all out hit!”–Manic Readers Reviews
“Cecilia Tan brings together love, suspense, and scorching sex in a story well worth reading. I would love to read a sequel to see what more trouble Wren and Derek can get into.”–Paranormal Romance Reviews
