Blackwell by Alexandrea Weis with Lucas Astor

Synopsis:

Blackwell by Alexandrea Weis with Lucas Astor

“… an intriguing, dark tale complete with vividly drawn characters, and a uniquely compelling character in Magnus … seamlessly blends mystery, magic and matters of the heart to create an enthralling read. Readers will be engaged from the start of the story to its climactic ending.” ~Melanie Bates, RT Book Reviews

“A dark story of passion and revenge … A guilty-pleasure read that kept me captivated knowing something sinister is looming in the plot and over the characters.” ~New Orleans Magazine


In the late 1800s, handsome, wealthy New Englander, Magnus Blackwell, is the envy of all.

When Magnus meets Jacob O’Connor–a Harvard student from the working class–an unlikely friendship is forged. But their close bond is soon challenged by a captivating woman; a woman Magnus wants, but Jacob gets.

Devastated, Magnus seeks solace in a trip to New Orleans. After a chance meeting with Oscar Wilde, he becomes immersed in a world of depravity and brutality, inevitably becoming the inspiration for Dorian Gray. Armed with the forbidden magic of voodoo, he sets his sights on winning back the woman Jacob stole from him.

Amid the trappings of Victorian society, two men, bent on revenge, will lay the foundation for a curse that will forever alter their destinies.

Read an excerpt:

“We all saw different spirits,” Emily surmised. “How is that possible?”

Katie rose from Jacob’s side. “We each saw the person we wanted to see. The person we felt most connected to on the other side.” She came around the table to Magnus, grinning like a proud peacock. “Do you still doubt my abilities?”

“No.” Magnus blew out a long breath. “I think we should not do this again, though. I got the impression what happened tonight may be only the beginning.”

“The beginning of what?” Emily pestered.

Magnus straightened his coat as he turned for the door. “Something very dangerous.”

Where Souls Embrace (Jasmine Cottage Book 4)

by Maureen Driscoll

Genre: Historical Romance/Victorian/Gothic

3.99 at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

From the author of the Kellington and Emerson Regency romances, comes the fourth book in the Jasmine Cottage series set in the early Victorian era.

Lily Winslow has had a difficult time making ends meet since the death of her parents a few years earlier. She has sought work as a companion, but it has been difficult to find a position with a ten-year-old brother in tow. She finally finds a job in a lovely home, but her employer keeps risking his life in pursuit of conspirators who wish to kill the queen.

Oliver Wadsworth has been a spymaster for well over a decade. Known for being calm under pressure, his entire life is upended when Lily Winslow moves into his home to care for his grandmother. As he tries to protect his family in a race to find the conspirators in a deadly assassination ring, he realizes he has a lot to live for.

WHERE SOULS EMBRACE is the story of finding love and blending a family. It’s very little history with a fair amount of graphic language of a sexual nature. It’s also a great deal of fun.

Life, death, and rebirth, Isis’s and Osiris’s future hinges on all three.

A century ago, the Dragon Kingdom of Nebty was lost to darkness. Invaded by demon hordes hellbent on stealing two powerful scepters, the Demon King claimed the preternatural realm as his own. To survive, the dragons fled their beloved home and sought refuge in the human realm.

Having lived most of their lives in human form, Queen Isis and Rock Dragon Osiris, mere children during the Great Exodus, find themselves clinging to their culture and the ties that bind what’s left of Dragon-kind. Safe and assured that they are free from the threat of demons, their love flourishes. Yet, on one horrific night, their lives are shattered by tragedy and betrayal. They learn that no realm is beyond the brutal reach of the Demon King.

Scores must be settled.
Love must be remembered.
And a lost nation must be reclaimed.
