Annabel
Lee:
The
Story of a Woman, Written By Herself
by
Christopher Conlon
Genre:
Historical Gothic
 
Everybody
knows Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabel Lee, but who was she really?
In this haunting and evocative novel, Christopher Conlon (“one of
the preeminent names in contemporary literary horror” 
Booklist)
imagines a life for one of literature’s most renowned characters.
Hers is a chronicle even more thrilling, doom-haunted, and tragic
than Poe himself could have conceived, for here Annabel Lee tells her
own story in her own words for the first time.

Their love brought scandal and demons

Perilous
Confessions
The
Possession Chronicles Book 1
by
Carrie Dalby
Genre:
Supernatural Southern Gothic Family Saga 
 
Their
love brought scandal and demons.

 

 

 

Lucy
Easton, an aspiring novelist, will do anything to help boost her
chances at publication—including betraying her family. But when she
crosses paths with the charismatic Alexander Melling, her aspiration
for success pales in comparison to the attraction she feels towards
him.

 

 

Alexander
is a young lawyer from a powerful family, striving to free himself
from his father’s shadow. The more time he spends with Lucy, the
more desperate he becomes to shed the secrets of his past—a past
which can destroy the both himself and the woman he’s falling in
love with.

 

 

While
Alexander struggles with his past sins, Lucy must decide whether
loving him is worth risking her own safety…and her heart.

 

 

From
gossip magazines to gleaming Mardi Gras balls, Lucy and Alex navigate
the Edwardian era in the Deep South with both passion and guilt.

Murmurs
of Evil
The
Possession Chronicles Book 2




During
the spring of 1906, Magdalene Jones is hired to be a companion to
Ruth Melling at Seacliff Cottage, the Mellings’ second home on Mobile
Bay. Magdalene’s simple country upbringing is no match for high
society banter and a manor hour infested with demonic activity.
Alexander, the Mellings’ bachelor son, and Magdalene find themselves
oppressed by demons playing upon their lusts. Claudio De Fiore–a
young Italian deacon training to become a priest–and newly arrived
from Scotland, Douglas Campbell, seek to protect Magdalene from the
evil within the walls but they themselves might be part of the
trouble.
