About the Author

Michelle Mankin is the Amazon bestselling author of the Black Cat Records series of novels.
Romance with subtext.
Reimagining classic stories with sexy rock stars and thought provoking issues.
For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn't kill her but the hours and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.
Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry.
Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the Tempest series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.
Rock stars, myths, and legends collide with paranormal romance in a totally mesmerizing way in the Magic series.
When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.

I have to say that even though paranormal romances are not my typical books I read that this two part series may have converted me. I gave it a chance because as far as rock romance authors go Michelle Mankin is one of the best and now I can see that she has successfully taken on a new genre. As Blade and Thyme’s story continues it takes you through what destiny is possibly all about. I loved how some of the relationships were linked from the very beginning without a hint beforehand. Blade and Thyme’s romance is one for the books with the deep devotion and loved that they felt toward each other and the lengths that they were willing to go to hang onto the other was really heartfelt. I think that I also fell in love with Morpheus and can’t wait to hear more about him. If you are a lover of paranormal romances this would be the book for you and if you haven’t really given them a chance yet this is a great book to help you change your mind.

As a huge fan of Michelle Mankin's, I will admit I was a bit skeptical about reading this latest book of hers since I am not a paranormal fan at all. I just don't read it. However, I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I absolutely adored this story. It kept me glued to my ereader from page one. Book 2 picks up shortly after the end of Book 1,which is a great backstory unto itself. Our hero, Billy Blade, is touching down in New Orleans for a much needed break and for some time to recharge the creative juices. From the time he stays at the former apartment of one Thyme Bellerose, whom we met in Book 1 and has seemingly gone missing once Hurricane Katrina hit 10 years prior, magical things start to happen. Since Billy has a gift of summoning spirits with his harmonica, he isn't all that surprised when Thyme starts to make her presence known to him when he in the apartment. And so starts a truly spiritual love affair. This book is so engaging. From the minute Thyme and Billy start to spend time together, there is this unmistakable chemistry that you just can't ignore. Even though she is a spirit and he is living mortal, they have more in common that one might think, and as the story progresses we learn more about why Billy has his gift and how he might be able to save Thyme from an afterlife in limbo. The author pays attention to detail and this book was very well researched. With NOLA and Mardi Gras as the background, the book uses many familiar sights and sounds. In addition, the description of the 'spiritual underworld' and those that inhabit it, was uncanny. I often felt like I was really there and have to say was happily drawn into that unfamiliar atmosphere. Although this story is paranormal at the surface, in the end it is a story of true love, fate, hope and resilience. The secondary characters, some kind, some downright evil, had me completely engaged the entire time. There are some incredible revelations and some very magical scenes that truly blew me away. I encourage you, even if you were not a pnr fan like I was, to give this book a chance. If you know Michelle Mankin's work at all, you'll know she writes from the heart and gives the reader storylines that are truly well written and captivating. I was mesmerized at discovering a genre not familiar to me, yet walked away loving every word. 5 magical stars and very highly recommended.
