Dear Ripped Bodice Community,
We want to make sure we are keeping you updated on how we are handling this crisis. It’s been a very challenging time but we are hanging in there.
The shop remains closed to all customers with no events on the calendar. Once we have more clarity about the ongoing health crisis, we will reevaluate the calendar and let everyone know.
We are still accepting online orders and have adopted a process to best comply with the evolving guidelines from California and LA County Departments of Health.
This means that Leah is processing all incoming orders and our staff has been instructed to stay at home. Because this is now a one-woman operation, shipping may be slower than normal. We love and appreciate your support in this incredibly difficult time, so we ask that you bear with us as we continue to fill orders.
We are now accepting new orders for care packages. However, because we are down to a shipping staff of one, we will be accepting orders in batches so as not to overwhelm Leah. Head to this link to enter your email address, and we’ll send you the order link once it’s your turn.
Questions about orders (or anything) can be directed to email@example.com
Finally, now is a great time to think about becoming a Patron of the store.
There is already a ton of cool content you can check out on our page. Including 12 original short stories from some amazing romance authors. Vlogs and other fun stuff. We know this is not an option for everyone and that's totally okay and understandable. But if you're looking for a way to help, this is a great option.
We hope you are all doing okay and making it through one day at a time.
xoxo, Bea & Leah and Fitz
A Secret Rose: A Thunder City Novella (Paperback)
Secrets, like roses, have thorns. Nikolaos Blackwood swore he would bring to justice the drug dealer known as Dodger. As Ghost, one of Thunder City's alternative human defenders, it was Nik's responsibility to keep his high school classmates safe. That included notorious bad-girl Daniella Rose. Ten years later, he needs to locate Daniella to deliver an urgent request from her estranged family. Dr. Daniella Rose finally believes she can lead a normal, happy life and focus on her relationship with Nik Blackwood - the one man she's always wanted but could never have. Now that she's back in Thunder City, she'll do anything to keep him - except reveal her hidden Alt ability to shapeshift into Dodger, a secret identity she killed before graduation. When a drug lord from Dani's past threatens Nik's life, Dani knows she'll have to resurrect Dodger to rescue her man, even if exposing her secret could cost her Nik's love - and her life.
