Kisses and Voodoo Wishes
by
Denise N Tapscott
Genre:
Southern Gothic Horror, Paranormal Romance
 
Can
any good transpire when Romani magic collides with Voodoo Magic?  For
Grandmother Zenobia, the answer is unclear.
The
year is 1890 in Carrefour Parish, Louisiana.  A Voodoo high
priestess with a mysterious past, Grandmother Zenobia conceals her
magical powers from her grandson Will. She wants him to have a
“normal” family life, including savory Southern dinners and
festive church gatherings. When Will reveals that he’s in love with a
girl named Syeira, Grandmother is overjoyed. In her excitement over a
future wedding, Grandmother fails to find out a crucial piece
information.  Syeira is not a New Orleans local, she’s from the
Camlo family.
On
the other side of the bayou, Queen Patia Camlo, is furious when her
daughter reveals her relationship with Will, who is not Romani. To
the Camlo tribe, The Traveler way is the only way.  Desperate to
put an end to their romance, Patia casts a spell so effective that
even the great Grandmother Zenobia can’t fix the damage it creates.

NOT THROUGH LOVING YOU
by
Patricia Preston
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 6/20/17

 

 

In the Southern town of Lafayette
Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and
a doctor with everything to prove.
When a sickly infant is surrendered at
the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after,
pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful
divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of
becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns
up. She doesn’t exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete
with Aaron’s cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a
risky alliance with her.
Country singer-songwriter Lia
Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she’s determined her tiny
nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her
stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her
misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and
sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more
unsettling, everything she’s ever hoped for in a man. After all she’s
put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a
song in the good doctor’s heart?
