"Highly erotic story with a twist!"
Having lost her parents to a car accident at a very young
age, Catrina was raised by her Nana. And now, Nana is gone,
dead and buried and Catrina is alone in the world. Trying
to keep busy in an effort to stay out of Nana's room,
Catrina is cleaning Nana's house. Anything to avoid going
into Nana's bedroom, where Catrina found her. Finally
forcing herself, Catrina takes the broom and dustpan and
enters Nana's bedroom.
While she's sweeping, Catrina thinks back about her Nana
and how the two of them had planned on Catrina's opening an
alternative medicine shop once she graduates college. Of
course, Catrina has no idea how she's going to afford
anything anymore with Nana gone. With the room finally
swept and the bed stripped, Catrina must now clean the rug
she found Nana curled up on, dead. When she lifts the rug,
Catrina finds a hidden trapdoor in the floor. Of course,
Catrina opens it and finds all kinds of things inside. From
amulets and scrolls to old books and bottles filled with
all kinds of things. When a scarf begins wrapping itself
around Catrina's arm, she decides she's had enough and is
going to put everything back in the space under the floor.
Catrina still can't believe Nana was into all this stuff!
Catrina thought all Nana did was use herbs and things for
cures, not black magic! When she's picking everything up to
put it back, a little black address book falls out of the
pile and onto the floor.
What is this little black book? Is it an address book, or
something more sinister? Exactly what was Nana into?
NANA'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK is a highly intriguing story.
Shannon Leigh once again tells a tale of the paranormal
with the heroine totally unsuspecting it. We become pulled
into the details of Catrina's life with the very first page
of the story and the action just keeps us turning the
pages. And exactly what NANA'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK has inside
is something totally unexpected! This is one you don't want

A firm believer in alternative medicine, Catrina's recently deceased grandmother had a tincture or tea to cure everything from sore throats to insomnia. But when Catrina discovers a secret vault beneath the braided carpet in Nana's room, one filled with various artifacts of magic, to say she was befuddled would be an understatement. What secrets had died with her mysterious Nana? And what ones would she discover within this strange treasure trove? One item in particular draws her attention, a little black book that seems widely out of place. As she investigates this strange tome, Catrina discovers that it's a phone book for summoning a male demon who will carry out whatever duty the bookkeeper requires of him. Inadvertently, her fingers brush the calling pad within, bringing forth Malthus, the Earl of Hell. While his previous tasks for her Nana mainly included general carpentry, Malthus plans on fulfilling some of Catrina's more carnal needs as well.
