She’s even more surprised when the dragon shifter she tackles to the ground says he’s not the criminal she’s looking for. But he is her mate.

Two dragon shifters in one day? Can she trust Egan when he says he isn’t responsible for the crime but he’s willing to help her solve it?

The Marked by Eve Langlais

Posted June 8, 2022 by Marsha in Dystopian, Owned, Paranormal / 0 Comments

In a futuristic society, fate is decided by genetics, and love is only for the elite.

The mark appeared while I slept and can’t be ignored. I must present myself to the Consulate and from there…

I don’t know what happens. While I’ve been taught the mark is an honor, I have no idea what it means. Questioning isn’t encouraged.

I must obey.

My change in status exposes me to a violent side of society that I never suspected. Brings me to a strange and wondrous place known as the surface, where I am immersed in a different way of living.

I discover pleasure. Am involved in intrigue. Learn about lies and different perspectives of the truth.

I must also make a choice between a man who is part of the caste system and the one who would destroy it.

Wings in the Night – The Beginning of my Paranormal Romance Adventure

Posted June 7, 2022 by Marsha in Discussion Post, Owned, Paranormal / 0 Comments

I have a love affair going on with one particular series, Maggie Shayne’s Wings in the Night.  I cannot tell you how many times I’ve reread this series, or back in the day, waited impatiently for the next new release.  I truly believe that it was this series of sexy, alpha-strong vampires and their Chosen mates that set Paranormal Romance as a genre of Romance that I would never, ever outgrow.

Sure the guys were hot, sexy, and annoyingly alpha in their attitudes toward women.  Now, granted these men (and some women) came from a much older time, had lived in a far different society than what we call modern-day… and their attitudes carried through with them during the long, long lives they’ve lived.

If you receive Maggie Shayne’s newsletter, then you’ll know that she has won the entire series back from Harper Collins/Harlequin/Sillhoutte/Mira – and legally, and in my opinion, rightfully they all are back with their creator.  They’ll be getting the royal treatment, and will soon be back on the shelves.  I’m excited for her that her book babies are now home for good.  Although I’m not a writer but a reader, I still understand how important this decision is.

This is one of those times when I wish I could erase all memory of a book and read it again for the first time, but since I have these in print and e-book well, I’m just going to set up a time to binge-read the entire series (and connections) soon.  If you haven’t read anything by Maggie Shayne yet, then here’s the link to her website.  Since she writes in several genres I’m betting you’ll find something to enjoy.  Maggie Shayne website.

At forty-three, Paige Provey is at the height of her career. As the author of a successful paranormal book series, she has a legion of fans who all believe she has powers herself. But when Paige’s ex-husband reveals that she’s a fraud, she quickly finds herself and her career canceled.

But Paige is still under a publishing contract, so she must put out a new book–one that will save her career. The only problem is her crippling case of writer’s block. So she heads to a lakeside community to refill her creative well.

Only while she’s there strange things begin to happen: Paige speaks to a woman who she swears is transparent, and everyone in town dresses as if it’s Halloween. Not only that but there’s a very mysterious (and attractive) man who claims to hunt monsters.

As if that’s not weird enough, when Paige’s ex-husband winds up dead, she becomes the primary suspect in his murder. Can Paige write another book, figure out the mystery surrounding Willow Lake, and also prove her innocence? Or will all her dreams go up in flames?

Watch for: Running with the Devil by Mandy M. Roth (expanded version)

Posted March 18, 2022 by Marsha in Discussion Post, Paranormal Women's Fiction / 0 Comments

Expanded version! That’s right! It’s no longer a novella! It’s longer! 

When a gubernatorial candidate comes through the doors of a small magic shop, claiming he was mystically framed for murder, a witch has to decide if she can put their past behind her and help.

I enjoyed this novella so much when it was in the limited-time collection of Aged to Perfection.

Now, it’s going to be an extended story (and I cannot wait for more juicy details) on its own that will begin the Shadow Ridge series.

Publication is set for April 1, 2022 (at this time)… and I’m definitely going to be picking this one up on release day.  You should, too, especially if you love Paranormal Women’s Fiction and/or Mandy M. Roth’s amazing storytelling.
