The biker gangs passing through Lobo Norte don’t scare Ofelia anymore. All those men are the same: scarred, homeless, and broken…just like Ofelia. They’ve become a blur of forgettable faces watching her strip. She takes off her clothes, takes their money, and wipes them from her memory instantly.

But Trouble is different. A biker with a wolf tattoo and tortured eyes, he sees beyond Ofelia’s tough disguise to a more fragile woman within. She’s drawn to him like she’s never been drawn to a man before—at least, not since she survived hideous torture at the hands of her ex-boyfriend that left her scarred physically and emotionally. She can’t forget Trouble. And she definitely can’t push him away.

There’s magic between them that neither understands. But maybe if Ofelia and Trouble can find the truth, they can release each other from the chains that bind them to Lobo Norte, to the Fang Brothers biker gang, and to the dark secrets in their pasts…

Ofelia is hiding out in Lobo Norte where she doesn’t feel so scared and broken. It’s a strange town where not everyone can find it and mail is magically delivered. She is happy with her life where she enjoys stripping for money and working behind the bar during the day shift. Biker gangs pass through often to fight in the cage and Ofelia doesn’t think twice about them until Trouble walks into her bar.

When Trouble walks into the bar, Ofelia is instantly attracted to him. She doesn’t know why he affects her like he does but she seems to affect him as well. The Fang brothers have a strong hold over Trouble but that doesn’t keep the two from creating sparks each time they are near each other. This one is hot, to say the least, and a fantastic book you will want to check out!

Book Review: Knight of Swords (Knights of the Tarot #4 of 4) by Nina Mason

Knight of Swords (Knights of the Tarot #4)
by Nina Mason
May 15, 2018
245 pages
Finn MacKnight, a womanizing bartender in New Orleans, has no clue how the blood-red moon that appears in the sky one night (while he’s having yet another meaningless sexual encounter) is about to change his life in unbelievable ways. Then, the creepy-yet-caring uncle who adopted him as a baby, reveals the astonishing truth: Finn is a faery—an Avalonian drone, to be precise—and is to lead a rebellion in another world—against the wicked faery sorceress Morgan Le Fay.

In the thrilling adventure that follows, Finn meets Wella Lyon, who teaches him the ways of the ancient Celtic warriors, how to call forth his inner wolf, and the true meaning of love and intimacy.

But will the lessons Finn learns from Wella, the Druids of Brocaliande, and the knights from the previous books in this magical series prepare him to lead a coup d’état against Queen Morgan and her army of vampires? Only time...and an ancient prophecy...will tell.

Knight of Swords is the thrilling conclusion to Nina Mason’s four-part Knights of the Tarot series. I would characterize the series as an erotic combination of historical fiction, mythology, and fantasy. Each book chronicles the lusty adventures of a Knight of the Tarot; effectively a knight in rebellion against the malevolent ruling queen of Avalon Morgan LeFay and her dark and sadistic militaristic right hand the Duke of Cumberland.

The Knight of Swords is Finn MacKnight, a promiscuous bartender the rebellion druid faction has been hiding in plain sight in New Orleans. In this story, Finn is called to fulfill his destiny as leader of the rebellion. The reluctant Finn travels from Hitherworld to Thitherworld to learn the art of combat and embrace his magic. Helping realize his fate is Wella Lyon, a beautifully fierce captain of the rebellion. The chemistry between the two is immediate and combustible.

I have really enjoyed this series. It has something for every reader. It’s smart, sexy, and highly imaginative. I enjoyed the aspects of Celtic mythology, runes, and druidic magic. I particularly like Mason’s lyrical descriptions of whisky, my all-time favourite beverage. I highly recommend this series to fans of both paranormal romance and historical fiction. It’s definitely romance for the thinking woman.

Michele PW Guest Post - For Sale: The Witch House (It Began with a Lie)

[Seen in the latest copy of Haunted Real Estate …]

For sale: Historic, four bedroom, two and a half bath house (also known as the "Witch House") on a huge, nearly two acre lot.

This over 100-year-old house is nestled on a very private corner lot, flanked by lonely rows of cornfields and a dark, easy-to-get-lost-in woods. It's perfect if you hate having nosy neighbors watching over you.

But, having your privacy doesn't have to mean you'll be lonely! With not one but two documented ghosts, (well, maybe three if you count the previous owner, aka The Witch, but it's not clear if she's actively haunting the house or not), you'll never lack company.

(And think of how much you'll save on a security system! Who would rob a haunted house?)

Plus, only two ghosts and four rooms means there's plenty of space for a family to spread out comfortably.

And, no haunted house would be complete without either an attic or a basement. The Witch House has both! Plus, a murder/suicide ghost story. Think of how popular you'll be at cocktail parties with a tale like that up your sleeve.

But, it gets even better. The Witch House is located in a picturesque little town called Redemption. Don't pay any attention to those stories about people disappearing without a trace. No one can prove anything.

Besides, even if someone DOES go missing, there's a rugged, sexy cop who is more than happy to investigate for you. If he can't get to the bottom of it … well, let's just leave it at that.

I have no doubt he'll uncover a perfectly logical, rational explanation for anything that seems … off. After all, ghosts aren't real.


And, things never are as they seem in Redemption.

To schedule your very own personal guided tour so you can decide for yourself how haunted the Witch House is, contact Michele Pariza Wacek.

A fresh start. That was what Becca hoped the move from New York to Redemption, Wisconsin, would be for her troubled family—a way to get her crumbling marriage back on track, and to bond with her difficult 16-year-old stepdaughter.

But instead of a new beginning, Becca is thrust into a mysterious past she barely remembers … a past that includes complications from interacting with her teenage crush, Daniel, as well as living in her aunt's old house (aka "The Witch House," according to locals).

But is the house really haunted? Or is there something far more sinister out to destroy them?

About the Author:
Michele Pariza Wacek (also known as Michele PW) taught herself to read at three years old because she so badly wanted to write fiction. As an adult, she became a professional copywriter (copywriters write promotional materials for businesses, nothing to do with protecting intellectual property or putting a copyright on something) and eventually founded a copywriting and marketing company. She grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and currently lives with her husband and dogs in the mountains of Arizona.

Crimson Vale: A Modern Gothic Love Story

Genre: Horror, Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Devil on the Left Books
ISBN: 978-1-7326854-0-6

Welcome to Crimson Vale.

It’s a dream come true. A vast inheritance. A beautiful mansion in the heart of the small town South. A seductive, mysterious, literal man of her dreams offering true, pure love. Ravaged in both body and mind, Jane Harrow leaps into that living dream with abandon.

Despite the voices.

Despite the visions.

Despite the warnings from both the living and the dead.

Because what Jane doesn’t know is nothing and no one are what they seem.

Because demons from the past are patient. Because dreams can quickly turn into living nightmares, especially in…Crimson Vale

This must be where it happened. My uncle lay in this room for close to forty years with my grandmother by his side, apparently knitting as the tubes and respirator kept him…I wouldn’t call that alive. Undead. What on earth was she thinking? Waiting one year sure, but thirty-plus? Giving up her own life to watch over a comatose man? Insanity. It really must run in the blood. I only hope—

Creaking in the hallway startles me out of my dark thoughts. Darn it, I guess he didn’t leave. I’m not sure how much longer I can handle social niceties. I’m exhausted from the drive, not to mention out of practice with people, and would derive great satisfaction from smacking that letch with my purse should he glimpse down my shirt again. I just want to take a shower, get into my pajamas, and sleep for a week. Have to get him out of here first. I walk into the hallway.

Everything stops.

My lungs, my heart, even my ability to blink stops the moment I set eyes on him. If it were storming outside I would swear I’d just been hit by a bolt of lightning. Time stands as still as we do, just staring at one another with the same awestruck expression. The stranger my age is a few inches over six foot with a lean body encased in an expensive gray suit with matching tie and vest. He could grace the pages of a magazine with that suit, wavy dirty blonde hair with a lock brushing his forehead and coiffed to appear slightly disheveled, big blue eyes, feminine lips, straight nose, and strong jaw ending at a pointed chin. He’s around my age, but as our eyes meet and another wave of whatever this is jolts through me, he seems a century older and I’ve known him every moment, every millisecond of that time. I’m scared, exhilarated, unnerved all at once. But deep down there’s a …recognition peeking through the strum and drang.

I never believed in love at first sight, and I don’t know if that’s what this is, but every atom of mine senses, every atom of his calling to me, screaming for me to sprint over to this stranger, tear off our clothes, and have him rut me like a beast right on the hardwood floor. To feel him stretching me, thrusting inside me. My most sacred place pulsates and grows wet just from the mere thought. What the heck is happening to me? This stranger must be suffering the same torment because those blue eyes grow ravenous like an anorexic faced with prime rib. No one’s ever gazed at me like this, with pure unadulterated, hot, wild, salivating lust. The same way I’m gazing at him. My resolve to remain on my side of the hall cracks with each passing moment. His fails. He lets out a soft grunt and takes a stride toward me. Thank God.

“Mrs. Harrow?”

Those two words break whatever enchantment engulfed me. I somehow pry my eyes away from the stranger toward the creaky stairs. Suddenly I’m freezing and trembling as if in shock. At least I can breathe again, though only in short bursts. D.J. takes the final step up into the hallway. “Oh, good, you found her,” he says to the stranger.

“Yes,” the man says, quiet voice cracking a tad, “I did.”

“Mrs. Harrow, may I present my son, Bram. He’s the one who tracked you down.” D.J. glances from his son to me, eyes narrowing in confusion. “What the hell is the matter with you two? Y’all look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

“We’re fine, sir,” Bram says with only a faint trace of a Southern accent. “Just got a chill. Old house and all.”

“Oh. Well, you can get someone to fix that, I guess. Bram can give you the handyman’s name and number. He’s been the one taking care of things. Hey,” he says to his son, “I’ve been meaning to ask. What happened to all those weird looking creatures and symbols that used to be on all the walls and tables? The gargoyles and such? There were still a ton of them even after the renovation.”

“I, uh, had them removed.” Bram turns to me. “I hope you don’t think I overstepped my bounds. I had them remove the medical equipment too and clean up. I just…wanted to cheer the place up for your arrival.”

“Um, thank you. For thinking of me.”

“Your grandmother would have wanted me to, um, make things as comfortable for you as possible.”

“You’re very kind,” I say, blushing. I’m sure as red as a fire engine. I look over at D.J. “Both of you.”

“So, have you decided what you’re going to do with the place?” D.J. asks me.

“I haven’t really thought that far ahead.”

“But you’re planning on staying, right?” Bram asks with urgency. “At least for a while?”

I meet his eyes again, instantly overpowered by the intense fear in them. I can stand it for only a millisecond. “Um, I-I guess.”

“Well, you are welcome to stay here while the will’s in probate. Or the Cypress Hotel is lovely. There’s also the Crimson Vale Motel, but it’s a tad low rent.”

“Um…” Do I really want to spend the night alone in this house? Two people died here, and those are just the ones I know of. I don’t believe in ghosts—your soul either enters heaven or hell—but this house feels as if it’s under an enchantment. Frozen in time by an evil witch. But it’s mine. I came all this way, and if I don’t stay in this house tonight, I never will. “No, I’ll be staying here. The letter said everything was still turned on?”

“It is,” Bram says. “I-we kept the utilities up to date for when you finally arrived.”

“Thank you. Both.”

We stand in silence for a few awkward moments. I sense Bram staring at me, waiting for something, but I can’t return his gaze. My eyes remain glued to the floor. “Well,” D.J. says, “we’ll get out of your hair. You’re probably tired from your trip. Bram?” The son follows the father down the hall and stairs with me three steps behind to show them out. Bram glances back, each time his mouth opens to say something, but he thinks better of it each time. “You have my card if you have any questions,” D.J. continues. “Don’t hesitate to call, even if it’s just for the name of a good restaurant.”

“Thank you.”

The men step out onto the porch, but I wait at the threshold. “Remember. Anything,” D.J. adds as he ambles to his BMW.

All I want is for you to leave now. “I will. Thank you.”

His son moves toward his own BMW SUV, but halfway there Bram suddenly stops, doesn’t move for a moment, then spins around to face me. For some reason my stomach clenches from nerves as he does. I grip the door handle in case he’s about to finish what he started in the hall, whatever that was. “I, um, I…” he says. His mouth clamps shut again to find the right words. If possible, he’s as unnerved as I am. He shakes his head to clear it and smiles. “Welcome home, Jane.”

Those words send a cascade of warmth through my body like warn rain just washed over me. I haven’t a clue what to say back. All I can manage is a weak smile before retreating inside like a mouse into a hole. The moment the door shuts, I turn my back to it and rest against the wood with a sigh. What is the matter with me? Have I replaced voices and seeing invisible people with nymphomania? I remain pressed against the door until I hear both men drive away, the tension waning as the sounds fade, leaving nothing but glorious silence. The house is still. My house. Mine.
