Beloved Lives: A Paranormal Romantic Suspense Novel

by Marilyn J. Evans

Genre: Mystery & Suspense/Christian Romance/Paranormal

She Must Choose Between Living Her Past and Creating a New Life

April Robins is a mess. Her diet and wardrobe are disastrous, she’s stopped exercising, and the nightmares are back—nightmares that started at puberty and didn’t stop until she married. Now that she’s divorced, the dreams are worse than ever, and April’s malaise has her cat and her best friend, Trish, worried.

April decides it’s time to get her life back in order by running and eating better. She also agrees to attend a class Trish thinks will introduce them to new guys. When April meets the class instructor, Mitch van der Waals, an expert in the paranormal, she discovers they have a lot in common including a mutual attraction. When she and Mitch start dating, both cat and best friend approve.

But when the hospital where April works as a medical technologist hires Dr. Weston, a handsome, new cardiologist, things get complicated. At her first meeting with Dr. Weston, April faints. As he shows more and more interest in her, she finds herself unaccountably affected by Weston, sometimes irritated, other times literally falling into a trance in his presence.

April realizes Weston was a key player in her past lives as she struggles to find the root cause of her nightmares through past life regressions, sessions in the sleep lab, and strangely spontaneous trances.

Does she have a choice between being who she is now and who she seems to have been over and over again?

Solving the mysterious origins of the nightmares that have echoed down through April’s many lives could be a matter of life and death, in this life and beyond.

Sleep Sweetly cover

“Sleep Sweetly (F’d Up Fairy Tales)”

by Angel Mystique

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: May 19, 2017

“… Once upon a time…”

Riley Sinclair wakes up in the same place every night, not in a bed, refreshed.

No. She awakes in the woods -alone- as the sun peeks through an opening. To make matters worse, her ex-boyfriend who was murdered (or was he?) keeps haunting her dreams, trying to commune with her.

Putting her best foot forward, taking the steps to move on, Riley is struggling. For every time she closes her eyes, Jerome is there.

When your curse is to be without the one you love, you do everything in your power to reverse it, right?

In dreams, he waits for her, hoping that she’ll see the truth and sleep sweetly.

***Please note: This standalone is a Paranormal love story. You have been warned. Romance and an HEA may ensue. It isn’t likely this will happen though.***

#TGIF: Catching My Breath!

coffee-1128140_960_720Isn’t it odd how you start out to do one thing, and end up doing something completely different?

It’s the story of my life.

Apologies for fewer posts and updates recently, but I dove in head first to CampNaNoWriMo this month in an attempt to complete my upcoming debut novel, and I’m very happy with my progress!

However, at the same time, I’ve launched my author page on Facebook, tweaked my Twitter profile, read six books and written five book reviews, secured my own domain under my author name…you’ll see it in a day or two…and celebrated the Independence Day holiday with all three of my adult children making the drive to ‘mom’s’ so they could eat up their weight in ribs, hamburgers and potato salad. (Um, and they’re not ‘little’ kids!)

And that was just the first week of July! Whew!

The rest of the month will find me completing edits and getting my book in ‘publishable’ condition, scheduling a cover reveal, and posting a few more excerpts…and maybe a teaser or two.

I’ll also be adding to my online free read, “Free, A Short Story.” Remember that one? It was supposed to be a three-post short story. I posted the first two installments with no problem, and got some great feedback from readers. Then, as I’m writing the third, and ALLEGEDLY, last installment, it simply explodes in my face! Characters began taking the storyline in new directions and introducing new characters, the heroine had a meltdown, and I may be mistaken, but I’m almost sure her soon-to-be ex-husband was over in the corner chanting, “No Justice, No Peace!” Needless to say, I had to fall back, regroup and calm the masses. The story still contains the original plot, but tertiary characters have added some interesting side views. Look for installment number three next week.

My biggest stumbling block – and I mean fall-on-my-face stumbling – has been creating a mailing list. MailChimp and me are not friends. I can code an entire web page by hand, but is my MailChimp mailing list working? No. It says it is…but it lies. I’m going to need someone to send MailChimp to my house to get this list done. I have bananas.

Guess what? I’m writing a book!

No, you’re not seeing things! I am taking part in a blog hop with authors because…I’ll be publishing my DEBUT NOVEL SOON! *SCREAMS!*

What started as a personal challenge during NaNoWriMo last November has morphed into a true WIP (work in progress)!  I won NaNoWriMo with a whopping 56K+ word count, and you know what? I’m still writing! I’m getting really close to the 100K mark, but I’m sure I’ll lose a substantial amount during the edit process – my editor is BRUTAL!

About my book. It’s called “In The Best Interest of the Child” and centers around Olivia Chandler. As a ten year old, her perfect world is ripped apart by loss and tragedy. With no living relatives to take her in, Olivia is forced into the foster care system, and endures eight years of apathy, neglect, abuse and near rape. Olivia is gifted with a silver lining as she ages out of the system, and attends college and law school. Her goal is to become a child advocate attorney, and give a voice to as many children as possible who are rushed through the court system.

Now in her thirties, Olivia is a respected attorney who has not only won landmark cases for her juvenile clients, but she’s worked with public interest groups around the world to set new policy. Yet, she’s still alone – pushing away any man who gets too close. Her ordered little world is about to be upended when she’s handed a case that hits too close to home. She will meet her demons head on, and make a new friend who just may have the answers about her past she’s always wanted. Her latest case also leads her to a man who refuses to be pushed aside.

Will Olivia be able to make peace with her past, extend forgiveness, and open her heart?


I love this story because even though it’s high on drama and inner pain, it’s also full of snarky dialogue, fun characters and plenty of laughs.
