Spotlight Review: Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

Image
UNHOLY GHOSTS - Stacia Kane Chess Putnam Series, Book 1 Del Rey ISBN-13: 978-0-345-51557-5 June 2010 Urban Fantasy Triumph City (somewhere in the USA) - 2020 (or so) It has been twenty-three years since ghosts revealed their existence to the public, and while doing so, exterminated two thirds of the world’s population. They’d have murdered more if not for the intervention of the Church of Real Truth, the only entity that was able to exert influence on the spirits through their use of magic. After that day, the world gave up on the traditional religions of old and embraced the new, more powerful Church and its employees, people like Chess Putnam. Chess works as a Debunker. If people have a ghost, they want Chess (with all her witchy skills) to investigate and send the spirit packing to the City (the underground home where the souls of the dead—most of them anyway—now reside). It’s a bonus that they get paid by the Church for letting them investigate and escort the ghost to it

They killed his entire pack, leaving him a lone wolf out for revenge. Although he’d sworn never to trust another human woman again, he must protect Faylene so she can help put the Keepers behind bars. What he didn’t expect was that she’d touch a part of him he’d thought long dead and buried. As Thad and Faylene run from danger, an irresistible attraction curls between them. Faylene longs to heal the emotional scars Thad carries with him, but she can’t help him if he doesn’t want her to, and she has her own scars she’s hiding.

Note: There is a giveaway. Check out the bottom of this interview. 1. Tell us about your newest release. I’m very excited about my medieval historical romance A Knight’s Persuasion, released in May by Medallion Press. It’s the fourth book in my award-winning Knight’s Series and is set in the fictional county of Moydenshire, England, in the early 13th century. A quick note here . . . I often have readers ask if my series books can be read as stand-alone titles. Yes, absolutely, they can! The bold, handsome hero of A Knight’s Persuasion is twenty-year-old Edouard de Lanceau. My readers will recognize him as the son and heir of Geoffrey de Lanceau from the first series book A Knight’s Vengeance. Edouard is a trained knight raised from his earliest days to honor the code of chivalry. He’s undertaking a vital mission for his father when he discovers a wounded and unconscious woman lying in a river. He vows to save her, especially when he realizes the damsel in distress is Lady Juliana

As quickly as they had once exchanged rings, Jonah filed for an annulment and vowed to put memories of Eloisa behind him. But a year later, due to a technicality, it seemed the millionaire was still a married man. Eloisa had lied about many things, and now he finally had the ammunition to unravel it all.

ROMANCING MISS BRONTË – Juliet Gael A Perfect 10 Ballantine Books ISBN: 978-0-345-52004-3 May 2010 Historical Fiction England – Mid-Nineteenth Century Charlotte Brontë is known as the author of Jane Eyre, but few of us know much about the real woman behind the stories she wrote. Born in the Yorkshire moorlands, Charlotte was one of five daughters and one son born to clergyman Patrick Brontë and his wife. When their mother died at an early age, their aunt stepped in to help raise the brood, and eventually Charlotte and her two elder sisters were sent away to a clergymen’s children’s boarding school. Unfortunately, the conditions at the school were such that all three girls became very sick, and shortly after their father brought them home, the two older girls died of lung ailments. Charlotte’s health was never great after that. As a young adult, Charlotte went to school in Brussels along with her younger sister, Emily, and returned to the moors with a new view of the world. She
