“Give in to the Feeling”
by: Sarah Zama
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Historical Fiction
Release Date: March 4, 2106
A speakeasy in the 1920s is the setting for this paranormal novella.
Chinese immigrant, Susie (Su Xie), has the life she never dreamed possible. Sent by her parents to America to fulfill an arranged marriage contract, circumstances lead Susie to instead end up with Simon. When Simon decides to leave the west coast for a new business venture in Chicago he takes Susie with him.
Susie has more freedom than not only women of her culture but of most women of the time. She drinks, smokes, dresses provocatively, and dances with wild abandon. Simon gives her everything… because Susie belongs to him and him alone.
Until the night Blood walks into the speakeasy.
His presence overwhelms Susie before she even knows who he is.
Drawn to each other, Susie looks forward to Blood’s frequent trips to the speakeasy… and their dances.
Blood and his ‘brother’, Michael are uneasy about what they sense… and see in the nightclub. But why are they aware of a dark presence? Just who…or what are Blood and Michael?
At first confused, Susie realizes what she feels for Blood is genuine and is no longer content with the arrangement she has with Simon. But Blood’s frequent visits and the time Susie spends with him have not gone unnoticed by Simon. He demands Susie end the “friendship” and send Blood away.
Having recently witnessed how dangerous Simon can be, Susie doesn’t want any harm to come to Blood and does as she is told… with a broken heart.
This leads to a series of confrontations between multiple characters and an otherworldly climax I’ve re-read three times!
A little loose and confusing in the beginning, this short read quickly lasers in on its plot and takes the reader an unexpectant thrill ride. I recommend it!
From Kiru Taye –
Many of you discovered me through my contemporary stories like the Essien series.
Did you also know that I write other romance sub-genres like paranormal/fantasy stories?
For example, Outcast is a story based on African legends and tales I heard as a kid.
I’ve always been fascinated with leopard men myths. In Europe, they have werewolves. In Africa, we have leopard people.
In Outcast, I put my own spin on the leopard people myth.
Ebube is an Ure Guardian, a demi-god leopard shifter, whose job is to guard the earth realm from spirit being who are not meant to be here.
Ugo is an Osu, an outcast among humans and a living sacrifice to the gods, who also has magical powers.
If you haven’t read Outcast, now is a good time to grab your copy. I’m currently writing book 2 of the series, Sacrifice.

Who is waiting for Sacrifice? 😉

Some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried…
Pia has made a dead girl a promise. One that she is determined to keep. But is she prepared for the nightmare that’s about to be unleashed?
When Pia Williams, a gifted psychic medium, is contacted by the traumatized spirit of a young girl, her search to uncover the truth begins. The more Pia learns about the girl’s gruesome fate, the more determined she is to bring those responsible to justice. But is she prepared for the shocking truth of what she’s about to expose?
With more questions than answers, one thing becomes clear to Pia: the girl’s spirit is uniquely powerful, and she’s killing from beyond the grave. Who—or what—is the girl now? A victim, or a demon with murderous intentions? What really happened to her? And how far will Pia go to help her get revenge?
Accused of a murder the spirit commits, Pia reaches out to the only man who can help her: ex-Special Forces detective Nate Ryder. A man who is as dangerous to her heart as the situation she seeks his help with. Nate would move mountains for the woman he loves, but how can he protect her against forces he can’t even see?
As Pia and Nate are swept into an unpredictable situation brimming with dark, evil intent, they soon discover they have more to fear from the living than they ever did from the dead…
