Duff Debuts "Elixir"

I will admit to my dork-dom. I saw Hilary Duff in concert on her first tour. Yes, yes I did. I have a strange fondness for her--I don't know why. It doesn't hurt that she's now married to my ex-Sen Mike Comrie...

SO, all that to explain why I feel the need to share this little bit of news: Hilary's debut novel, Elixir, hit shelves today!

Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea's father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea's photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before. When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father's disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.

Yes, I will be picking up a copy. No, I will not let your laughter stop me.


  1. Yesterday I saw a 20-something Asian guy on the train with it--he looked positively engrossed!

  2. I share your interest in Hilary Duff. I also have no idea why it is exactly that I like her, but I am definitely going to be picking up a copy of this book as well!

  3. Whoa --- based on that summary, I would totally read that. I was actually expecting it to be something super-lame in the vein of Lauren Conrad or Nicole Richie - just another celebutard writing a 'novel' about celebrity life. But this actually sounds interesting!
