Haunting dreams have come before for Ramona Damsun, but night after night, a vision pulls her, calling her back into the world she'd prayed she'd never have to face again. When the body of a brutally murdered young woman is found, Ramona is forced to once again walk and fulfill her destiny as a 'Dream Walker'. Reluctant, Ramona is thrown into the middle of a serial killer investigation.

With no viable suspects or evidence, Chief Douglas Thorpe responds an anonymous tip which sends him into the eye of a storm to thwart an attempted abduction by the killer. The tip leads Thorpe back to Ramona. At first skeptical about any paranormal source of information, Thorpe is thrown into Ramona's world. A world he has no idea exists; a world where Ramona can walk through dreams, walk a soul back from the brink of death, and a world that holds untold terrors and hellish demons.

Together they have to find a way to track down a demon-possessed killer. The time has come for Ramona to face her fear, her past, and walk the path destiny has chosen for her.

I just finished reading "Dreamscape (Dream Walker Series)" by Carrie James Haynes, which was an enthralling story of a Dream Walker, a serial killer, sheriff, and FBI profilers. In fact, I started reading it last night and finished in the wee hours this morning! Great story line and well-developed characters. I'll be looking for more books from Ms. Haynes. Highly recommended!


Daughter of Deceit!

Someone wants Alyce Hythe dead…

Shunned from London society for being the daughter of England’s most notorious spy, Alyce Hythe desires only to clear her father’s name. For years, she has been hidden away from all prying eyes, given a new identity and told to forget who she was. But strange things have been happening causing old rumors to once more be whispered.

Long has Lord Julian Casvelyn lived with guilt brought on when his brother was murdered by England’s most infamous traitor. But one eventful night has changed everything Lord Julian believed about his brother’s death. Never did he suspect the woman he has just saved from certain harm is the daughter of that man. Now Julian is caught in midst of a conspiracy and desire for that woman.

Thrown together by fate, the two search for answers long denied them and along the way discover a love that can free them both.

This is one of a few freebies I downloaded recently that really knocked my socks off. I didn't read the description, so I didn't know what I was getting. This is a suspenseful book, full of surprises. I wasn't sure where it was going at the beginning but I was completely hooked by the end of the first chapter. I usually like my books with a lot more steam and a lot less plot, but I loved this, plot and all. This is a nicely crafted historical that kept me on the edge of my seat. I didn't expect that at all. I probably downloaded this for free but I would pay money for it. It was that good.

From the beginning, I was hooked on this book. An intriguing storyline, interesting characters, a fulfulling love story- all the ingredients needed to hold my attention. Kudo's to the author- a WELL written story. In a genre where storylines have been overused and unrealistic even by the best of authors, I found this story to be refreshing.


Whispers of a Legend Saga!

All three books under one cover!

Kela has always known what path in life she would follow. She was born a Euchoun. Half Witheleghean, a passive peaceful race where magic runs freely and the other half, Sordarin, a valiant warrior race of hawkmen who rule the sky, she knows well her parents gave the ultimate sacrifice to give her a chance to live. Yet, in so doing, they have left Kela unprepared to face the dangers that await her. Her instincts are to protect and in this she does, but in so doing it leads her into a world where she knows not whom to trust. In time her power matures and grows stronger when she bonds with a Sordarin warrior, Cono. She learns well why she holds the power. An evil as no other before, Asmeodai, has emerged but all is not what it seems as a dark cloak encompasses her family. Betrayal, distrust, treachery leaves Kela alone. She is torn by her desire for Cono and the purpose, the path, she has been given to follow. And when another emerges within her world, one who seemly wants only to help her along her path, she is pulled further away from her Sordarin.

Shadows of the Past is the beginning of the Whispers of a Legend saga which follows Kela's battle to embrace her destiny, where as a young woman unsure of her ability and her confidence in facing the challenges before her to where she emerges as a strong leader who learns to lean upon her own strength, to stand not behind, but side by side with her warrior.

The Path Now Turned. Having proven her ability during the Payelaga Desert battle, Kela believes herself ready to follow her destiny beside her warrior. Fate has another path for Kela. When she discovers all she has long believed is not as it seems, the betrayal leaves Kela torn by her desire for Cono and the path she has been given to follow.

Vision of Destiny. Trained for only one purpose, to protect the innocent from an evil that threatens to destroy her world, Kela has never questioned her destiny. The enemy has never been in doubt and her path laid clear before her. Now all is blurred. Left with only one choice, she escapes from Yucca in search of the one known as Seilda the Tvopac, the Guardian of the Past…but Kela learns quickly the Past holds its own dangers.

The Legend continues...
