Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry

Conversations with ColleenThe December Edition

Hello everyone! This week I’m happy to bring you an author I’ve seen throughout social media but didn’t know.

First, please welcome my guest, Marie Lavender.

Great Reviews!

Hi, readers! Yesterday I discovered these cool reviews for my books…

Blood Instincts, a paranormal romance/urban fantasy (with a slightly futuristic angle)

on August 16, 2018
I’ve not read the first volume in the Blood at First Sight series. I enjoyed this book as a stand alone work with no problem.

The story revolves around Oliver, a vampire, and Myah, whose father was a vampire and whose mother was human. They were not supposed to be able to have children, so Myah is special. Myah does not know her heritage , and the story revolves around Oliver’s attempt to introduce her to the life of an “other.”

The book was easy to read, interesting, and enjoyable. The plot moved quickly. The romantic scenes were detailed and sensuous. The author led me to care about Myah. I found myself feeling rather protective of her and becoming concerned whenever I suspected that any other creature – human or otherwise – might harm her.

I will confess that I do not often read paranormal romance. I was drawn to the book because I have enjoyed dome of the author’s other work. However, I found Blood Instincts to be enjoyable and well-worth a read.

Heiresses in Love Trilogy, a historical romance boxed set (covers the entire Heiresses in Love Series)

Fara doesn’t want to risk her heart but she does, and what will happen?

Chloe doesn’t tell the whole truth to a man she loves.

Adrienne…will she fight for love or fall?

All of these stories were well written by a great author. The reader will be gripped to the pages waiting to find out what happens. Great word building and great characters you want to see good things happen to.

Wow! Thanks, David and Barbara, for your kind comments! ♥

New Release!!

Well, readers…it’s official! Now that the Heiresses in Love Series is complete, there is one more thing to look forward to. That’s right. The boxed set of the entire trilogy just released this week! Exciting, right? 😉

Let’s see what it’s all about!

Blurb:

An unforgettable, sweeping saga of romance, passion and history rooted in tales of maritime suspense…

Three heiresses…three novels like no other.

UPON YOUR RETURN

Fara risks her heart every time she’s with him, but she cannot deny him.

UPON YOUR HONOR

Chloe never imagined that the man she deceived would be the one man she can’t stop loving.

UPON YOUR LOVE

Adrienne must decide whether to succumb to desire or fight for love.

…Will these remarkable women at last find what they’ve always wanted, or lose more than they can bear?
