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
Blood Hunter (Paperback)
Their love is written in blood. Hannah and Scott return to Thunder City, their love stronger than ever. The Oversight Committee has other ideas, and decides the two alternative humans must be separated because they are too dangerous together. Refusing to comply, Hannah and Scott go on the run again. For Hannah, help comes from a sympathetic doctor who understands her ability to heal and promises to protect her from the Committee. Scott discovers his own mentor, who uses live ammunition and a take-no-prisoners attitude with Scott's translocation power. Both of them flourish under their new trainers, until Hannah asks Scott to investigate a young boy with mysterious surgical scars. Scott's mentor tells him to ignore the request, that preparing for the coming war with the Court of Blood is more important than the life of one insignificant boy. Scott fears he's losing Hannah to her mentor and a medical mystery - and worse, that's he's losing his own humanity to fight a ruthless enemy. Hannah and Scott are rebels in a city that prizes law and order. They rescued each other from Star Haven's nightmare quarry prison, but can they save each other from a tangled web of intrigue while the Court of Blood pulls the threads tighter?
