Into The Tunnel of Darkness by Monica M Brinkman

by Monica M Brinkman To everything there is a season… 

This book was written in the hope of showing any individual who contemplates having an affair what they may expect to
experience. It is also written for those who may be able to identify with my words and to sincerely help them make the right
decision for their own circumstances. 

It is my wish that some will read these words coming from the very soul and think twice before taking on a lover, and
to help those dealing with the aftermath of infidelity. 

My words are simple; the situation surely was not. 

These are my emotions, my words, my inner feelings. When all was lost, I found solace in my writing; it healed, it inspired and it is truth!

Mmarie, 2009 (After the healing)

In poem form, Into the Tunnel of Darkness spoke of adultery and the consequences that attach itself to this life changing topic. I picked this book to review because I thought it had an inter… Read More

Hoodoo Money by Sharon Cupp Pennington

by Sharon Cupp Pennington

Things are not always as they seem in the Big Easy . . .  

After her almost-wedding to a bigamist, successful children’s author Braeden McKay has given up on love. She’s content to live vicariously through her imaginary heroine, Platypus Pearl, and a gaggle of adventurous, web-footed cohorts — until a working vacation in New Orleans shakes up her quiet, structured world. Had she known that souvenir nickel stolen from the grave of a hoodoo woman would catapult her into a nightmare of betrayal and murder, she would have insisted her friend put it back.

Cursed nickel or unfortunate happenstance? Sanderson Montgomery isn’t one to discount the supernatural beliefs of others. This is The Big Easy, after all, Mecca to the spiritual and the superstitious. As a veteran detective, neither does he ignore cold, hard fact. And the fact is, someone or something is bent on harming Braeden McKay, and it’s up to him to protect her while keeping his heart out of the mix.

Can love, the very thing Braeden wants no part of, be the one force greater than any adversary – even a hoodoo curse?

Braeden McKay, a successful children’s author, is visiting the “Big Easy” with her friend, a well known model. If Braeden had a clue that the cursed nickel her friend picked up off of … Read More

Thief of Light by Denise Rossetti

by Denise  Rossetti Book 2 in the Four-Sided Pentacle series

A luminous new erotic fantasy romance from the author of The Flame and the Shadow.

In the subtropical city of Caracole, Erik the Golden is widely known as irresistible-his Voice an instrument of incredible pleasure. But the Voice is a curse as much as a blessing, for once Erik used it to steal a soul, and now he must pay.

Pruella Takimori McGuire is the business manager for the beautiful courtesans of the Garden of Nocturnal Delights. She deals in numbers, not Magick, and when Erik turns his charms in her direction, she sees only vanity, not a golden gift. If Erik cannot use his power to win Prue’s heart, how can he truly possess her?

And all the while, a far darker power corrupts the foundations of Caracole-the Necromancer, who feasts on souls. When the Necromancer’s hired assassin kidnaps Prue, Erik must harness his air Magick to recover the woman he has come to love more than life itself.

Thief of Light is the second book in a science fiction/fantasy series by Denise Rossetti.

Erik the Golden is a singer with an extraordinary gift—one that he considers a … Read More
