If you’re looking for a fast-paced, yet sweet and romantic LGBT story, then “Chasing Lightning” by author Rachel York is exactly what you need.

The promotion will run from January 22 through January 25 – more precisely, until 11 PM –, and the price will go down to $1.99.
Scarlett Faye Turner is a young woman who lives in a small town in Pennsylvania, a place that she can’t wait to part with. Her plan is to build a successful future for herself, find happiness and freedom. A big city is the only place that can offer her the liberty to be herself, love who she likes, and never bother with what other people might think about her choices. She is in senior year, so she will soon leave Dillinger behind and start a new life in college. However, her plans are turned upside down when hot, sexy Gina Jamison shows up and steals Scarlett’s heart. For the first time, Scarlett gives into her desires and learns what true love feels like and what it can do to someone.
Gina and Scarlett are eventually forced to part ways and build separate lives. Scarlett goes to a women’s college in West Virginia, then she travels to the magical desert of New Mexico, and eventually reaches the sexual liberation of Paris in the 1960s. She will never forget Gina, and she hopes that one day they will meet again and get their “happily ever after”. But, until then, Scarlett focuses on her career and tries to experiment as much as possible. She lives her life to the fullest, not regretting a single choice she makes. When they do meet again, both Scarlett and Gina are grown-up women who have gone through a lot, explored their own limits, and learned what they are truly made of.
Rachel York is amazing when it comes to character development, and readers will immediately fall in love with Scarlett and Gina. They are complex, believable, and relatable. Everything they experience can happen to anyone, and the love they feel for each other is timeless. Readers will enjoy the historical details of the 1960s, but, at the same time, they will appreciate the universality of the story.
