    Imaginative Collection of Stories

    'Soul Desire' is a sensual, cozy read stimulating the senses and sending shivers down my spine. Laura creates the perfect mood with storm swept cliffs, gloomy weather, the remote estate and fog-filled haunted bedrooms 'it's an erotic ghost story so you just *know* the bedroom's haunted'. But Eli's no dark, brooding lord of the manor - not with his teasing winks and seductive smiles. As the reader, I sympathized with Mason's grief, knowing that it was real - but not oppressed by it. Mason knows it's time to let go and love again, but needs the right 'incentive' to take that step. *** Josh shows no mercy for his readers, writing in his trademark 'well it should be trademarked' 'finely sharpened' style of humor, when he treats us to this devilishly delicious haunted house romp. And not to worry, there are plenty of shudders and shivers and mysterious happenings with a *very* gratifying man love romance. Rhys makes that perfect ghost hunter: sensitive 'not the physic kind', headstrong and full of determination ... to ignore his growing attraction to the annoying cop. Sam's a man that's intimidating in stature and personality a man that's sure of himself, used to giving orders and having them obeyed and a man that may be a little out of his depth with Rhys. It's said that opposites attract and maybe they'll make the perfect couple - if they don't strangle each other first!*** Sarah writes a bittersweet story, of loss and learning to accept that loss, because without that acceptance, Robert can't move on. She tugs at our heartstrings weaving together the past and present, a tale of two lifetimes connecting through Robert and Cody's dreams. The story is rich in characterizations, Sarah creating a heartwarming sense of family and home with Cody and his relatives. There's a subtle feeling of apprehension, like Cody and Robert are ill-fated lovers. I kept reminding myself - this is a romance and romances have happy endings. As the story continues to unfold, the feeling of dread intensifies with a terrifying twist, painfully pulling those heartstrings. The story has a solid mystery, with murder and old tribal legends adding to the plot. There are gentle moments of humor that keeps the story from becoming too somber like when Cody inspires the photographer in Robert in an interesting way, which inspired very vivid images in my mind's eye. I was moved to tears several times, and when I have that kind of emotional response to a story, I know the author succeeded in writing something real and beautiful.*** William Maltese's 'Rendering of Souls' is a mystical, lustful fantasy of murder and revenge. Near the end of days, when magic is a thing of the past, Glynen seeks out a magician and the powers of a magical candle.
