So Excited!  March, 2016 issue of Romantic Times posted Dangerous Places as a Top Pick with this review:

Romantic suspense aficionados are in for a real treat as pioneering romance writer Chase returns with an exceptional classic tale that has been completely updated and expanded. Dangerous Places is the first book in the Nikki Holden and Roman Cantrell mystery series, and Chase plans to expand and update the second book as well. Nikki is a prickly heroine with a ton of backstory and a nose for the news. An awesome read from beginning to end! Reporter Nikki Holden is the best at what she does because of her instinct for uncovering the facts and her willingness to use unconventional methods to get her story. Currently, Nikki has “befriended” Marci Nathan, the young mistress of married jai alai star Ignace. Nikki knows Marci’s true identity and hopes to parlay their connection into an interview with her true target. First, however, Nikki needs to sidetrack the all-too-sexy and handsome man following them. Roman Cantrell is a successful P.I. who is surprised to find himself distracted by Nikki. An unexpected murder throws a curveball at Nikki and Roman, who are closer to danger than they suspect.

AFTER 4 YEARS Travis and Casey are still part of the Top 50 Books to read after 50 Shades of Grey!!!   Double Occupancy is NOTHING like FSOG – there is no BDSM/no collars/no handcuffs – reviewers have called it: “elegantly erotic” “adult characters – no college Twinkies” “chemistry was intense” & this fantastic note from a man: “One of the most authentic romance books yet. Casey and Travis are both great, believable characters with hang-ups and desires so real and intense that this is one book you’ll believe came from a real life whirl wind romance.” 

I had some great interviews from the past year that I’m keeping posted –  

Grab a cuppa java and read my interview – so much you still don’t know about me but lots of fun stuff here!

I love this!!  And this guy must be reading my books…my heroine’s are all uncontrollable!!! And I don’t write hero’s who think Jell-O shots are a food group!

____________________________________________________________________________

If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances – some more explicit than others – you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: “cat & mouse” – “slow burn” – “hot and steamy” – “highly addicting” – “solid characters & lots of humor” – “amazing reads!” I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren’t looking for a man – until the right one comes along! And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don’t know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

Whether you read my erotic romantic comedies (updated eBooks), my updated ‘steamy’ romantic eBooks, or my classic eBooks – remember there’s never an expiration date on Romance!

Exciting news for audiobook lovers: ONE WAY OR ANOTHER (classic romance audiobook) was audible.com’s “Best Reviewed Romance for October 2012” narrator: Janina Edwards

And SPECIAL DELIVERY, which has been on audible’s erotic romance bestseller list since its debut in August, 2012, was #4 out of 10 Top reviewed romance novels for 2012! (PS it was the only audiobook not from a major publishing house!) narrators: award-winning team of Destiny Landon & Lee James from Bella Czar Productions.

I also write sexy mystery/thriller’s. My non-fiction “How to write the Amateur Detective Novel” which was nominated for the Agatha Christie Award is in the FBI Forensic Library at Quantico.

Dangerous Places: A Roman Cantrell-Nikki Holden Mystery #1 by Elaine Raco Chase
See my Review here

With dialogue that is second to none, ERC reinforces the enjoyment that well-written dialogue brings to a story, setting a tone and rhythm for the action to come.
“So the chase ensues, or I should say chases: Roman of Nikki, Nikki of the story, and the secondary characters all feeding information, some questions of misdirection and the occasional odd clues about just what is important to them, the story moves quickly from one moment to the next, never losing steam.  Roman and Nikki are wonderful together – from early attraction that is bandied about like a game of hot potato, to their finally coming together to share stories and information, you can see the growth of the relationship and  the balance that these two very alpha personalities come to find together.”

    Is caught in a trap available yet? I have checked Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Smashwords. I was really looking forward to reading it. Also when will A Rare Medium, Well Done be coming out? The excerpt sounded fascinating!

    • Hi Jennifer…thanks for taking the time to comment…I am working hard to get Caught in a Trap finished within a few weeks…A Rare Medium, Well Done is also on the burner…I have just regained my rights for my original mystery/thriller series … Dangerous Places…with the second book, Dark Corners…featuring Roman Cantrell and Nikki Holden… so I’m updating those two over the summer… hope you’ll check out some of my other ebooks in the mean time!

    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be
    honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up!
    I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back down the
    road. All the best

  8. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout
    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.

  9. Lottie Bridges

    Has Caught in a Trap been released yet? if so where is it available.

    • Hi Lottie – thanks so much for asking…nope still working on it..have had way too many family illnesses to be able to write as quickly as I want to. And the book is BIG! I plan on having a launch party so keep watching here for snippets & news! Elaine

  10. I’m glad you enjoyed the snippet…it’s copyrighted…I need to post that…I am very excited about Caught in a Trap it’s more than a romantic comedy I am tackling some very dramatic issues including PTSD, child abuse, Veteran affairs, hunger in America..sometimes it’s easier to get across the ‘truth’ by using fiction…I have been doing a lot of research so I get everything as accurate as possible!

  11. I recently noticed your website. You’ve
    got a loads of information here that is why i like
    it!
