REVIEW: Ghosts Don't Lie, by Katie O'Sullivan #MondayBlogs

Image
Jillian Rogers Greene worked hard to close the doors on the psychic abilities that defined her youth. For years she pretended to be normal, ignoring the ghosts who whisper to her. When a car crash sets her on a collision course with the past, ugly secrets about her family and marriage come to light. She's forced to reevaluate what she thought she knew...and exactly what the future holds. 

Connor Sanderson might be the key to unlocking that future. The grey-eyed artist knows ghosts aren’t real, but his attraction to the beautiful psychic makes him question those beliefs. With her husband plotting to kill her, can Jillian make Connor see the truth before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:
Ghosts Don’t lie is a beautifully rendered story of self-empowerment. Jillian faces many obstacles in her path of personal growth, some bitter, some bittersweet, and some delectable. The author takes the reader on a journey that has our hearts twisting in one scene, pulsing with fear in…

Demon Kissed, by Karilyn Bentley #UrbanFantasy

Image
I'd like to congratulate my friend and fellow TWRP author, Karilyn Bentley on her new release, DEMON KISSED. Blurb:
Gin Crawford, the world’s latest demon huntress, has no time to mourn her dead lover as she’s called in to determine why a demon attack occurred at the local medical school. And not just any demon, but the one demon that gives her demon-killing bracelet the shivers. A dead professor, a lab full of missing anthrax, and a demon who turns good people into minions complicate her life. Can Gin and her mentor Aidan Smythe solve the mystery of the missing anthrax and the identity of the demon before someone else dies? Excerpt:
The scent of sulfur hangs in the air like a demonic stink bomb. I want to slap a hand over my nose, but no one else seems affected by the stench. Must be a demon huntress thing. “Justitian,” Smythe mutters. “Not demon huntress.” “If you don’t like my new title, then stay out of my mind.” He glares. I swallow. Cross my arms. Refuse to take a step back. …

CHARACTER INTERVIEW TIME!
Please meet Meghan Muldoon  from Veronica Lynch's For Keeps, A Candy Hearts Romance
(JC) Thank you for joining us Meg. Where are you from? 
(Meg) I was born in Limerick, Ireland but emigrated to the US as an infant. My parents were inn keepers who settled in a region known as the Irish Alps in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. Many Irish immigrants settled in the area over the years, hence the nickname.  
(JC) Tell us a bit about For Keeps. 
(Meg)It is about my struggle to balance my vocation as a victim advocate with my personal relationship. Working with victims of violence fulfills me professionally and spiritually but Keenan Rossi does something for me at the personal level that I never thought I'd find.
(JC) What did you think the first time you saw Keenan? 
(Meg) He couldn't keep his eyes off my legs and I was intrigued by the fact that he spilled  his coffee down the front of his shirt…
