The Rebel Princess by Anne M. Strick
Romance*paperback, 394 pages*CreateSpace (September 14, 2010)
An insider's first-ever behind-the-scenes scoop on how movies are REALLY made: gritty, grinding, tunnel-vision labor, back-stage intrigue, explosive dramas, parties, and relationships that last a night or a lifetime. Larger-than-life characters who live life with fervor, and contend with their own inner demons and one another, all in the pressure cook er of a location shoot in the exotic world of Mexico. This romp of a story follows
the making of a movie from pre-production through wrap. A hotly passionate love story elevate the stakes.
Complete with sex, suspense and a possible murder.

October 5 - The Adventures Within
It is obvious from reading The Rebel Princess that Anne M. Strick knows the film industry. Thankfully, she used this knowledge in a way not to bore the reader but to entertain. We get a sneak peak into life on a movie set, exotic locations, then add in romance, mystery, and a love the main character, Davena, cannot forget. The dialogue is very believable and I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes experience and Hollywood glitz. With a cover which may be construed as a YA novel, this is NOT for a younger audience. This book does have adult content and is intended for mature readers.
Cover comment: Sexy pose, is okay.
