"Interesting paranormal stories of love"

MAGIC IN THE WIND by Christine Feehan. With 7 sisters and a large extended family, Sarah Drake has returned to the family home, but only she knows her real purpose. She is mysterious, magical and so different from other women that Damon can't help but be drawn to her. Even the wind seems to whisper her name. Damon is shocked to find he is attracted to this 'powerful' woman in the neighboring cliff house. He is infuriated to find she has been assigned to protect him; but even more shocked to learn that his coming has fulfilled an ancient prophecy.

Security genius Damon Wilder hopes to find refuge in this small coastal town. He had been kidnapped; critically wounded; saw his friend murdered and now wishes to be left alone to find peace. Unfortunately death follows him to his new home. Will Sarah and her sisters be able to work their special magic to secure a future for Damon and Sarah?

Accepting the limitations of a short story, make allowances for a genius to accept Sarah's magical powers without too many questions. It took a bit of suspending belief, but the characters were enough of a pleasure that the story flowed. This story does have the feel of an introduction to the Drake family of 'power-filled' women and I hope the publishers do not disappoint readers. I look forward to more stories of the Drake women from Ms. Feehan.

HOT AUGUST MOON by Katherine Sutcliffe. Agent Anna Travelli is part of a special Secret FBI Profiler division. Her psi-talents have been developed and she barely regrets leaving New Orleans and her former love, D.A. Jerry Costos. Now she has been called to help find a serial killer and working with him is part of the package. Can they work together without reigniting the fires of love?

This is an EXCELLENT prolog story to the upcoming romantic suspense HOT AUGUST MOON. The story closes with the political agenda filled, but the murder spree is not ended. Although I have my personal suspicions who the Killer is, the clues are not definite. The story concludes in a satisfactory manner, but you will be joining me in looking forward to exploring more with Anna Travelli.

ONLY HUMAN by Eileen Wilks. While investigating serial murders, San Diego detective Lily Yu is forced to accept the aide of Rule Turner, prince of the Werewolf Clan Nokolai. Can she trust him not to follow his own agenda and can she resist their mutual attraction?

Shapeshifter /Were - readers will enjoy this Fantasy look at a world where Magic is an every-day fact. The special twist at the end of the story brings a smile, but the suspense during the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I hope Ms. Wilks brings us more stories of this Were-society in our contemporary time.

AFTER MIDNIGHT by Fiona Brand. When Jane O'Reilly opened the door to her neighbor, they were both shocked by an undeniable bond. Jane's husband had terminal cancer and she would not abandon her first love. Seven years later, she is a widow and Michael Rider is divorced and has returned to his farm now retired from New Zealand's SAS. The recent murder and rape has the town in a state of terror, but is Michael someone to fear or a loving refuge?

This is the only story in the anthology that does not have a paranormal element (Unless you consider love-at-first-sight paranormal). Even so, don't skip reading this touching and suspenseful tale.
