Jane Austen meets New Adult Fiction in this compulsively readable
"Today is not the day I die."
Ari Demos starts every day with this thought. Fresh out of high
school, she's landed a coveted role as a stunt double in a new Pride
and Prejudice adaptation starring the Hollywood phenomenon Weston
Spencer. But this job isn't going to be easy: Ari will be performing
complicated water stunts and driving fast cars along the narrow cliffs
of Corfu. One false step and she could lose not only her job, but her
And then Wes Spencer, Mr Darcy himself, arrives in Greece. He's got
dirty blonde hair, a mile-long yacht and a bored look on that gorgeous
face. Ari wants nothing to do with the rich actor boy, but on the day
she meets him, she has an accident. One that almost claims her life.
And now she can't hide from the truth any longer:
She might be much closer to losing everything than she thought. She
might be dying. And the British actor is the last person she'd expect
to save her life.
She's a hard-working island girl. He's adored by millions.
Falling in love was never supposed to be a part of the job.
Staying alive was never supposed to be a part of growing up.
Was this story ever meant for a happily ever after?

A message from M.C. Frank about Lose Me:
“LOSE ME. is the NA (new adult) story of a British actor and a stunt girl. They meet while filming a modern Pride and Prejudice adaptation on the island of Corfu, and fall in hate at first sight!
Things aren’t as they seem, however, and soon enough sparks begin to fly. What they don’t know is that a dark, heartbreaking secret is threatening to tear them apart.
I am so excited to share this story with you guys, all of you have been so supportive through the entire publishing process, I have never felt less alone in my life!
This book is so close to my heart, because it deals with a lot of issues I myself have had to deal with. One of them is extremely serious and I haven’t read or seen any book that deals with it, and so it is even more important to me to raise awareness about it. A very special person in my life has had to deal with it, and my book is dedicated to him.
Actually, I think that’s the main reason inspiration took me to this story; it was because I needed to tell my story as well as his, and to put it out there in the world, so that more people can know that they are understood and that they are not alone in their struggle.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Welcome to the engrossing world of M.C. FRANK's books, where characters aren't going to have an easy time of it: They will find themselves in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they're in Jane Austen's England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they're scared they'll die before they have finished high school. That sort of thing.
Don't worry, though, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so there's a good dose of those as well in everything she writes.
M.C. Frank (writer, reader, designer, physicist and teacher, to name a few) has been living in a world of stories ever since she can remember (that's before she knew how to write). She started writing them down when she could no longer stand the characters in her head screaming at her to give them life, and while those first scribblings weren't exactly good (nor were they books, although she insisted on calling them that), they were enough for her to discover her passion in life.
She got her university degree in physics a few years ago (yes, she's like Sheldon, only a bit crazier!) and is now free to pursue her love of reading and writing, as well her free-lance job as editor-in-chief. She lives with her 'dude' in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks, where she rearranges her overflowing bookshelves every time she feels stressed.
Which is often, since (as you might have noticed) she doesn't pick the easiest subjects for her novels.
