Book Description:

Raven LeClaire is still reeling from the murder of a young woman that turned out to be a reading client when there is another disappearance. On top of her connection to the victims, she is grappling with some newly discovered psychic abilities that have appeared, seemingly, from nowhere.

Then there is the very handsome and sexy Viktor Thorssen. She knows that he wants her as much as she wants him but he keeps turning away from her at the last minute. As frustrating as it is for her, she has no idea of the turmoil that he is suffering at having to keep her at arm’s length.

There are secrets that Raven needs to know before Viktor will feel comfortable entering a physical relationship with her. He feels that there is too much going on in her life at the moment and he does not want to overwhelm her by confessing his secrets to her. And he has many of them.

Things are quickly escalating as another beautiful young woman becomes a victim of horrible torture and murder. When she appears to Raven, she and Viktor are, once again, drawn into a deadly game where someone quite dangerous is controlling the players. While the police have no real leads, Viktor thinks he may have an idea of who is behind it all.

He has an enemy that dates back centuries. This is an enemy that he thought he was rid of forever. Now, as it turns out, that may not be quite true. All he knows is that he must stop this monster before both he and Raven become victims again.

Is Raven ready to hear the whole truth? Viktor knows that the only way he has a chance of winning is to tell her everything. But can he risk it?

Remembering Raven by Lacey EdwardsChapter One

 

“Now remember to contact me if you need me,” Raven LeClaire said to her latest reading client.

“I so appreciate that, Ms. Raven,” Aimee said effusively as they hugged. “It just makes me feel so much better knowing that you’re here for me!”

“I want to be here for you, Aimee,” Raven replied. “Now you go get busy with what you need to do. Don’t be afraid. You will be able to pull this off with no problem.”

Raven walked Aimee to the front door of the shop and gave her a final encouraging smile. Then she watched the young woman as she walked with a determined gait down the busy sidewalk through the throng of people.

Yes, Aimee can do this as long she keeps up her determination.

Finally turning away from the window, she walked back to join her friend and business partner Allegra Canelle at the front counter.

“So, were you able to help her?” Allegra asked.

“Yeah, I think so,” Raven nodded. “As long as she keeps her determined spirit, she will prove to her boss that she is more than ready for this promotion over that newer guy working at the firm. Aimee’s doing all the right things so far. She just needs to push it a little harder. That guy she’s up against for promotion really isn’t ready to take on all of this responsibility. Sometimes that good old boys network still raises its ugly head. But she can beat it.”

“That’s good to hear,” Allegra smiled. “Anytime you are right in a reading, our business skyrockets.”

“Well, you know what they say about word of mouth advertising,” Raven laughed. “I suppose you are heading out with your mystery man tonight?”

“Of course,” Allegra said as she tossed her mane of auburn hair coyly. “I can’t explain it, Raven. But I have such a connection with this guy! He makes me feel everything that all of those bodice ripper romances talk about.”

“Really,” Raven stated dubiously. “You have said that in the past, you know.”

“Yes, yes,” Allegra said dismissively. “I’m well aware of how I have behaved with men in the past. But I’m telling you, Raven, this guy is truly different.”

“Well, then, I can’t wait to meet the man that has turned my friend around when it comes to serious romances.”

“You will meet him, I promise,” Allegra said as she raised her hand as if swearing what she said to be the truth.

“Can’t you at least tell me his name?” Raven inquired.

“I suppose that telling you his first name wouldn’t hurt anything,” Allegra said hesitantly. “Ok, his name is Philippe.”

“Wow,” Raven said as she raised an eyebrow. “That’s quite a fancy name he has!”

“Don’t you start!” Allegra exclaimed. “You were the one that wanted to know his name!”

“I know, I know,” Raven laughed. “I was just teasing you. It really is a very nice name.”

“Well, that’s all the information you’re getting on him for now.”

“So tell me,” Raven leaned into to Allegra. “Does he dress French?”

“Stop it!” Allegra exclaimed as she swatted a hand at Raven.

There was no way to know how long this discussion would have lasted if the little bell above the shop door had not tinkled just then to announce the arrival of a customer. They both turned to greet the new arrival and saw that it was Sabine LaPointe, the lovely new client that had come to see Raven only a few short weeks ago.

She looked just as lovely as she had the first time Raven had done a reading for her. Her dark hair was once more in long braid that hung provocatively over one shoulder and her gorgeous golden brown eyes were still just as compelling. There was something different about her that Raven sensed immediately.

“Sabine!” she exclaimed. “How wonderful to see you!”

“Thank you, Raven,” Sabine replied smiling. “I was wondering if you would have time to read for me today.”

“Of course! In fact, I’ve got some free time right now if you would like!”

Raven wasn’t sure if she imagined the look of relief that crossed Sabine’s face but she chose to pretend she had not noticed.

“Yes, please,” Sabine said. “Now would be perfect!”

“Come this way, then,” Raven said as she led her to reading alcove.

Once there, she invited Sabine to sit as she lowered the drape to afford them some privacy. Then she joined her and started to shuffle the Tarot cards.

“You look as if you’re doing quite well,” Raven said as she shuffled. “Are there any particular questions or concerns that you would like to address today?”

Sabine seemed to think about her answer before delivering it.

“I took your advice, Raven,” she finally said. “I accepted the modeling job and it has been going very well so far. They’re really keeping me busy and the money is amazing! I’ve never had so much fun working. I almost feel guilty calling it work.”

Raven smiled broadly.

“I’m so happy to hear that, Sabine! See? The cards were right! Now, let’s see what they have to say about things for you today.”

Turning over the first card, Raven smiled.

“Three of Cups,” she announced. “You’ve had plenty of celebrating to do since you were here last!”

“Yes!” Sabine eagerly agreed. “I definitely have! As I said, the modeling job is perfect and, well, there have been other developments, too.”

“Oh really?” Raven teased slightly. “Well, let’s just have a look!”

Turning over another card, she smiled even brighter.

“The Sun says that you are happy in all areas of your life currently,” Raven said. “This must mean that you dealt with the new man situation. He’s going along with you on the new job, then.”

Sabine nodded somewhat shyly.

“Yes, I was worried at first that he wouldn’t support me in it, but now he seems to be fine about it all.”

“Then I am relieved for you, Sabine,” Raven said even though she was starting to feel a little shiver of apprehension.

Turning over another card, she frowned slightly.

“The Devil,” she said. “This is your card of obstacles or potentials. In this case, it might be either or both. You see, the Devil shows temptation that is bad for you. It also shows you breaking free of some type of negative bonds that have been holding you back. The advice to keep the bad from happening to you is in the next card which is the High Priestess. This card shows that you have excellent intuition and that you are aware that someone important to you has many secrets that he is keeping from you.”

“You said ‘he’. Does that mean Henri is the one keeping secrets from me?” Sabine asked worriedly.

“He very well could be, Sabine,” Raven replied. “But we knew all along that he might not be the best man for you.”

“What else do you see, Raven?” she asked.

Raven turned over another card. It was the Eight of Swords.

“The Eight of Swords tells us that you have the ability still to escape the trap that might be approaching you. But you must pay attention to your intuition. It will never steer you wrong,” Raven said.

She reached across the table and laid her hand on Sabine’s.

“You already know in your heart that something is not right,” she said intently. “You don’t have to admit to me. But you must admit it to yourself.”

“No, no,” Sabine said somewhat frantically. “I do want to tell you. I just don’t want it to be true.”

“Then, if you feel that you want to share something with me, please do.”

“Well, you know I told you that Henri has been very supportive of me in my modeling,” she began.

Raven nodded, encouraging her to continue.

Sabine took a deep breath.

“I’ve just had this feeling that he only became so cooperative when he saw how much money that I was making. I’m afraid that…that he’s been…. stealing from me.”

Raven briefly closed her eyes.

“Ok,” she said softly. “Sabine, you already know the truth and what you need to do. There is no reason to put it off now. You have this amazing career in front of you! Don’t let this piece of garbage tear you down! Stealing from you? No. You must end things, but you must not do it alone.”

“What do you mean?” Sabine inquired with a slight tremble in her voice.

“I mean have some people very nearby when you end things with Henri. I fear that he may be dangerous. Actually, when is your next out of town modeling assignment?”

“I’m to leave on Friday,” Sabine replied. “It’s for a shoot in Holland.”

“Then that’s perfect!” Raven exclaimed. “If he already knows that you’re going, then you will have the ideal opportunity to end things with him. Make sure you are not alone with him. How long will you be gone?”

“I’m not exactly sure,” she said. “At least a couple of weeks, maybe a little longer. It is a shoot for several projects. The photographer is the same one for all of them and just felt that it would save on time to do them all at once.”

“Does Henri know where you are going?”

“Not precisely,” Sabine said. “Just that I am going to Holland.”

“Ok, that’s good then. Still, I would feel a lot better if you were to keep someone with you at all times. Do you understand?”

“Yeah, I do,” Sabine sighed. “I just hate feeling like I have to be afraid of someone that I have begun to have feelings for, you know?”

“I do understand, sweetheart,” Raven said as she tried to comfort Sabine. “But the right man will come along for you and it will not be that far in the future.”

The rest of the reading was rather ordinary and, except for that niggling little feeling of apprehension, it went well. Raven hugged Sabine and walked her to the door of the shop. She continued to watch her as she walked away. When she returned to straighten up the reading table, she drew one more card on impulse regarding Sabine.

It was the Ten of Swords.

Scheduling, I hate thee… #countdownsale

Frustration banner
Why do I hate scheduling?

Because it never goes off the way I mean it to. That blog post that went up last night about the Countdown Sale? Yeah, it’s too early. It ain’t happening on schedule. Why? I guess Amazon had other ideas. So that was time wasted, and time wasted drives me crazy because I could be doing something constructive, like writing. Instead I’m having to fck with this blog and update you all as to the problem (instead of avoiding the problem to begin with). Why? I wanted the sale to go down at my leisure (as in today [*actually, no. I wanted it to go down yesterday!]), but Select’s programming module only lets you schedule things beginning x amount of days in the future, usually two or three (I think it said) which means you have to get in there x amount of days in advance and set it up for some blind date in the future. (Future authors, listen up!)  Which well, if you have to schedule marketing surrounding it and they need four years in advance notice (I’m only half kidding, there) that makes sense. But you know what? That’s not the way I roll. When I want to get something done, damn it, I want to get it done now when I have the time to screw with it not six weeks from now when storm Pain in the Ass might (or might not) be hitting.

*sigh* Because you might think it takes no time to blog but yes. Yes, it does. (I’ve been working on this blog post for a good hour now. Time well spent? Feh. (Yes, dear Caitlin and Trevor, and Isaac, Ruth, Stacy and Aaron, I hear you. I’m coming…). Frustrating no?

So when I was thought I was setting it to TODAY, the system decided I meant TOMORROW. I don’t know about you but my calendar says it’s the 16th. Somehow the sale date got changed overnight to the 17th. Will it show up tomorrow? I can only hold my breath and wait.

*Sigh*

This glitch also adds to the kerfuffle about Select and their lovely way of doing things and why so many people are fed up with it. You can type Select into the search engine and come up with a billion articles on it, I’m not going to add my two cents here. Daddy always said “you’re in their ballpark, you play by their rules” and it so applies here.

Julicoversgr500Anyway, for you all,  again, mea culpa. That last (to borrow another indie author’s term) wasted ink post about the Countdown sale for Murder Upon a Midnight Clear, went out early. The sale is actually TOMORROW, not today.

I think. I hope. (Crossing all fingers and toes and eyes)

Daniel R. Marvello–A Little Romance with Your Fantasy

We’re always listening out for great new fantasy romances around here, so when our good friend Daniel R. Marvello mentioned his new book First Moon, I knew my readers would be interested too. First Moon (The Ternion Order Book 1) released a few weeks ago and though it looks like a bit of a departure for him, I think you’ll find it interesting. So when I extended my invitation, he decided to tell us a little about the romantic thread to First Moon.

A Little Romance with Your Fantasy

by Daniel R. Marvello

When I set out to write fantasy adventure stories, adding romantic elements was not a high priority. Yet readers comment on the relationships between my male and female lead characters nearly as often as they do any other aspect of my stories. Apparently, I can’t help myself.

While I lay no claim to writing romantic fantasy, I do believe that every story (of any genre) benefits from including a little romance. As a reader, I don’t care much for obsessive swooning, but nothing does more to make a story a page-turner for me than putting a relationship or love interest at stake.

To one degree or another, all stories are about people and their relationships. But there’s a reason that romance is the biggest selling book genre: most of us enjoy a good love story, and most of us want a happy ending.

Romance Happens

For me, a big part of character development is figuring out how the characters relate to each other. Their motivations often mesh in surprising ways. The result can become a rivalry, an opposition, or an attraction that affects how the story progresses.

At the same time, circumstance often has a big influence on how relationships develop between characters. In fact, I believe it should have a big influence, because characters who don’t react realistically to their circumstances don’t feel like real characters.

All of the romantic relationships (fictional or otherwise) I can think of depended upon circumstance. Or, as my wife often quotes, “geography is destiny.” Her use of that quote originally referred to a competition between a physically remote relationship and a nearby one, suggesting that the nearby relationship is more likely to win out. But it can also mean that putting two compatible people in close proximity to each other is likely to result in a connection.

Drawing from Reality

I’m a story planner, but I don’t plan down to the scene level. My stories evolve in many ways as I move my characters from one major story beat to the next. I know where everyone is going, but the details of how they get there develop incrementally. In my stories, the romance subplot germinates from one of those details.

I often discover that some event from my own life or someone I know fits perfectly into the story. I modeled the marriage proposal in one of my books on my real-life proposal to my wife. (This anecdote will show you just how romantic I am not.)

Back in October of 1990, my girlfriend and I were driving to Yosemite for a several-day vacation. All of the deciduous trees were turning color and the lateness of the season meant we were virtually alone on the road. Driving up the curves toward the park was surreally beautiful. As I drove, I was thinking about how much I enjoyed spending time with the adorable woman who sat next to me. We had fun with each other all the time, and I wanted to keep doing things with her forever. It was in that moment that I knew I wanted to marry her. The connection from my brain to my mouth formed before I gave it much thought, and I declared my perfectly logical conclusion: “We should get married,” I said. “Okay,” was her answer. And that is the story of our oh-so-romantic betrothal.

Richer Characters

I may not have set out to write romance into my books, but I’m glad things have worked out the way they have. Character development is not just about exploring the passions and motivations of a character in isolation, it’s about how characters with different (or similar) passions and motivations interact.

We humans influence one another. Our interactions drive our emotions, to both good and bad effect. My favorite stories acknowledge that and celebrate it. Relationships can take many forms, but I believe including a little romance makes the characters richer and the story more engaging.

Want to know more? Here’s an excerpt!

It’s one in the morning, and the last guests have gone. Other than the cleaning crew, Brian and I are the only ones left in the ballroom. I know we need to leave, but I can’t bear the thought of standing up and trying to walk out of the room, down to the garage and then to the car. I think my feet might literally fall off. “You’re going to have to carry me out of here,” I tell Brian, and he gives me a wicked grin in return. “I was planning on it,” he says, and he stands, takes a deep breath, and lifts me right out of my seat. I yelp and throw my arms around his neck as he carries me out of the room and over to the elevator, barely showing any strain at all. He has to put me down once we get to the elevator, though. “I need a free hand,” he says, hitting the “up” button. But the garage is – oh. I should have known. “You booked a room.” He nods. “And you told my parents we wouldn’t be home tonight.” Another nod. It’s all part of the fantasy, I guess. He’s been imagining that he’s James Bond all night, and after a glitzy evening at the casino, James Bond doesn’t hop into the minivan so he can get home, walk the dog and collapse into bed. No way. He takes his conquest for the evening up to the five-star hotel room, where the champagne is already waiting. On ice, no doubt. The bell dings, he ushers me into the empty elevator, and as the door closes, I feel my fatigue suddenly, instantly, drain away, and I’m all over him. I may not be a fan of those movies, but I know how they go, and it’s not as though I need much of an excuse to throw myself at my husband. By the time the door opens onto the third floor, I’m panting and extricating my hands from his tuxedo jacket. “You woke up in a hurry,” he says, panting himself, pulling his hand off the zipper of my dress, which is already halfway down my back. “Well, I know what you were thinking, and I also know that no girl can resist James Bond, right?” By way of an answer, he leads me down the hall, opens the door to our room, picks me up again and deposits me on the bed. In seconds, he’s finished the job of zipping me right out of my dress, and his tuxedo is in an undignified mess somewhere on the floor. After that – there’s no more thought, just feeling, just his hands and his lips and his – his everything.

Interested in the books that lead up to this one? The first five books in the series are collected in one Kindle Box Set, and it’s on sale this weekend for just $0.99!

What if you could see everyone else’s dreams? Sara Barnes has just discovered that she can. And this gift – or curse – will lead her on an extraordinary journey. Follow Sara as her newfound ability leads her into adventures she never imagined. She will hunt down a serial killer, investigate a plot to murder one of her teachers, unravel a conspiracy between a mobster and a corrupt politician and face off against her nemesis: a woman who shares her talent, but uses it to destroy lives rather than save them. And Sara will have to manage all that while finishing college, becoming a doctor and falling in love, too. Here are the first five books of the Dream Series, along with bonus material created especially for this collection. Included in this set are DREAM STUDENT, DREAM DOCTOR, DREAM CHILD, DREAM FAMILY and WAKING DREAM. In addition, you’ll find the short story BETTY & HOWARD’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE starring Sara’s parents.

Genevieve Jack–Mother May I tour and giveaway

 I am pleased, today, to have paranormal romance author Genevieve Jack with us. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her previous novel, QUEEN OF THE HILL, and am looking forward to Mother May I. I was lucky to be able to corner the Queen of the Hill herself for a little interview. I hope you will enjoy it. I hope to have a review of QUEEN OF THE HILL up for your reading pleasure soon, as well as a little bit more about the series itself.  For now, here’s a bit about Genevieve’s forthcoming novel, MOTHER MAY I. Genevieve Jack Mother May I Blog Tour   Grateful, and Genevieve, thank you both for joining us today. Make yourselves at home. Now then, Grateful, I must say you intrigue me.  The whole business of being a witch and a Hecate seems both thrilling, and a little overwhelming! What can you tell our readers who may not understand what goes into being a Hecate?

Grateful Knight: A Hecate is a type of witch, also called a sorceress of the dead. My job is to police the supernatural element in my ward. All Hecates are women: half goddess, half human. We draw our power from the dead, so you usually find us living near a cemetery. Interference with humans by supernatural beings without consent is strictly forbidden and could land the perpetrator in the local hellmouth via my judgment. I also sort the rare human soul who becomes trapped for some reason as a ghost in the earthly plane. It happens sometimes if a person’s soul has unfinished business or has lived a life equal parts good and evil.

What does being a caretaker entail, if you can speak for Rick? How does one become one?

Grateful Knight: When a Hecate comes into her power, she is immortal. Most witches will chose to stay immortal, but not me. I fell in love. Real love. I loved someone so much that I gave him my immortality. If you think of immortality as a thing, like a glowing red heart, I put that heart inside of my caretaker. That spell made him immortal, but it also bound him to me. It is my immortality inside of him. He is the vessel of my eternal soul. As long as we are together and I partake of his blood, I’m immortal too. But I can be killed. Have been killed. When that happens, I am reincarnated. Once I’m old enough, it’s my caretaker’s job to find me and to give me my power back by reconnecting me to the part of my soul he keeps for me.

Grateful, if you’ve known Rick so long, why hasn’t he taught you any Spanish?

Grateful Knight: He probably did in a previous life, but I’ve only known him a short time in this life. Between trying to survive the latest supernatural attack and working as a nurse in the local hospital, I haven’t had much time for Spanish lessons. Besides, Rick has lived in New Hampshire for centuries. He barely has an accent anymore and rarely speaks Spanish unless he is reminiscing or feeling emotional.

I see. Are there any particular supernatural creatures you haven’t encountered in your world that you’d like to meet?

Grateful Knight: It would be cool to meet an angel, but I’ve been told heavenly creatures and earthly supernaturals like me usually don’t mix.

That’s too bad. It might help to have one on your side from time to time. And for a silly one, in light of your wedding preparations, what’s your favorite kind of cake? ;) Genevieve, you can answer that one too, if you’d like.

Grateful: My favorite cake is devil’s food with chocolate icing. Dark chocolate icing. A multitier wedding cake with red roses on alternating layers would be gorgeous. Maybe his and hers sugar skulls on top. Rick would love that.

Jack: I like angel food with whipped cream and strawberries. Hold the sugar skulls. Both sound heavenly! You gals are making me hungry. ;)

Genevieve, I’m very excited to have you and Grateful with us today. Thanks so much for your time. I’ve enjoyed QUEEN OF THE HILL and look forward to your new  release, MOTHER MAY I.  Can you give us a hint (spoiler free, or not, as you please) as to what Grateful and Rick might be facing next?

Genevieve Jack: In Mother May I, Grateful has to stand up to her goddess mother in hopes of finding a spell that will restore Rick from the damage Tabetha caused. A new supernatural threat wants Grateful dead, and she becomes increasingly convinced that her mother is behind the attacks. Grateful must build alliances with other supernatural creatures in order to stay alive while she goes about executing a spell that could save both her and Rick, while setting things right with the goddess.

Sounds thrilling! I can’t wait to get to it. Readers, here’s a little more to tempt you about MOTHER MAY I.

Book Description:

Grateful Knight is one stressed out witch. Not only has she failed to restore her caretaker, Rick, from an evil witch’s mind-control spell, but the loss he endured extends well beyond his memory. To make matters worse, compensating for his absence could cost her the job she loves and the strength she needs. When a new supernatural threat leaves Grateful for dead, a vampire ally saves her life but at a price. Her assailant’s calling card makes it clear she’s marked for death, possibly by her goddess mother. With the help of her half-sister Polina, can Grateful gain the power she needs to win Rick back and beat the goddess at her own game?

On Gothic–Guest blog at A Woman’s Wisdom

Sing a Mournful Melody, Gothic, short story

Available at Amazon

Monday again, well, for today I have a little guest post of my own to tout.  You may remember, about a month ago, a lovely blogger named Bodicia reviewed my latest piece, SING A MOURNFUL MELODY. Today, she has a guest post by yours truly concerning the story. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about it, and why I decided to write a truly Gothic story, you can read the post here.

Enjoy–and thank you again, Bodicia! :) It’s been a pleasure, my friend!
