"A Very Good Science Fiction/Parnormal Read"

Lauren is not somebody who would be a heroine in any book. A forty-something timid mouse, she is a doormat to everyone who knows her, her very timidity seeming to incite people to be needlessly cruel. When a stranger comes into the store she works out and sets his sites on her, she doesn't know what to do with his attention and the sudden animosity of her fellow co-workers. Bad things begin to happen to people who disdained her, however, and the very handsome, devilish stranger seems determined to win her love. But all is not as it should be, Lauren comes to find out when the stranger, named Syntian Cree, disappears from her life. Shocking secrets force her to come out of her shell totally and move into matters she never thought she'd be a part of. This book was very well written. It's labeled as a paranormal horror/romance, but don't expect your typical HEA ending. Mrs. Boyett-Compo definitely has a career ahead of her in writing, if this book says anything! I've heard her other romances have the normal HEA ending, which I'm glad for because she's a wonderful writer. Don't get me wrong, the book was very good, but the twist at the end just wasn't to my liking. The book features demonology, which was something of a turnoff to me. Falling in love with a demon (a Nightwind) isn't exactly my cup of tea. However, it was a very good paranormal read, and if you love science fiction/paranormals this is definitely up your alley!

An Unholy Love

Evil has a new name: Syntian Cree.

Weaving a mesmerizing tale of witchcraft, revenge, and eroticism, NightWind will take you on a whirlwind journey into a lonely woman's heart and a demon's hellish passions.

NightWind lays bare the hidden desires of an abandoned woman's soul. For those women who have ever known the brutish sneer of a handsome man; the knowing smirk of a beautiful woman; the disdain of strangers or the disregard of family, this tantalizing tale of supernatural love and passion will have her cheering for Lauren Fowler and wishing for a visit from Syntian Cree.

But be careful what you wish for, dear one, for the NightWind is listening!


Rating: Sensual-not a traditional romance, graphic violence, adult situations
