The Book: Just Add Spice

The Author: Carol E. Wyer

9781908208224The Story: Escape from reality comes in patent-leather Prada knee boots.

Dawn Ellis needs to escape from her painfully dull existence. Her unemployed husband spends all day complaining about life, moping around, or fixing lawnmowers on her kitchen table. The local writing class proves to be an adequate distraction with its eccentric collection of wannabe authors and, of course, the enigmatic Jason, who soon shows a romantic interest in her.

Dawn pours her inner frustrations into her first novel about the extraordinary exploits of Cinnamon Knight, an avenging angel — a woman who doesn’t believe in following the rules. Cinnamon is ruthless and wanton, inflicting suffering on any man who warrants it. Little does Dawn realise that soon the line between reality and fiction will blur. Her own life will be transformed, and those close to her will pay the price.

Review by Christopher Wells: With Just Add Spice, Carol Wyer has taken her storytelling to a new, deeper, level. The jokes are there aplenty – the kind of smart, sassy retorts and situation set-ups/payoffs which litter her earlier books. But this story has a touching poignancy which will make the characters stay with you long after you finish reading.

There is a confident, balanced structure which brings the characters fully to life without sacrificing pace in the plot. The story moves along at a nice clip, which allows the plot twists to catch you unawares and jokes to hit you right in the funny bone. Altogether, this is a very satisfying read from a lady whose skill continues to impress.

The Book: The Wizard & The Wanton

The Author: Charity Parkerson

The Wizard and the Wanton

The Story: A Fate lacking in inhibitions and the wizard who holds her powers in his grasp collide in the latest book in Bestselling Author Charity Parkerson’s “Sexy Witches” series.

Out of the three Fates, Rowena is the wildest. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Now, she is in the biggest fix of all time. She’s lost one of Heaven’s Seers to the Devil, and she needs Randall’s help in order to find her.

Once upon a time, Rowena pulled Randall Cruz into a supernatural fight in order to regain her powers. In retaliation, Randall cast a spell that gave him the control she seeks. With the exception of a few angels, a zombie, and an outrageous pixie, Randall enjoyed his quiet life as owner of the local apothecary before Rowena pushed her way in. Since the day they met, he’s been forced to battle a pirate, give up wearing glasses, and now deal with the Devil. Every day, he braces for what will come next.

An undeniable attraction, a struggle for dominance, and a love to last through the ages comes to life in The Wizard & The Wanton.

Her “Sinners series” was voted one of the top ten best books by an Indie author in 2011- Paranormal Romance Reads

Charity’s book The Danger with Sinners was named “Best Book of 2012” by Paranormal Reads Reviews and was a finalist in the 2012 Australian Romance Reader’s Awards for Favorite Paranormal Romance.

She was named as one of the top three Indie authors of 2012- EbookBuilders

She is a member of The Paranormal Romance Guild, is a Goodreads moderator, a member of Coffee Time Romance, and co-host of The Melissa Craig and Charity Parkerson show.

Charity won author of the week in August of 2011, and is a five-time winner of the The Mistress of the Darkpath. She received two nominations in the eFestival of Words book awards for Best Short Story and Best Erotica of 2013.

Review by R. Murry: Charity is a wizard with words. She mixes the alphabet into words and phrases that stick to your mind. My interpretation of one of her cauldron produced locutions: The wizard’s intelligence could only grow. Things that got bigger made her happy… and she was happiest when his grew bigger.

In The Wizard & The Wanton, Ms. Parkerson plays with the reader’s imagination with demonic pleasures that a normal person would like to attain. However, only wizards, fates, and those with supernatural inclinations will rise to.

All is not lost for us mortals though. We have authors like Charity to lead us into the world of phantasmal pleasures where humans dare not go, because of hell’s sinful fires of destruction. Her scenes are so well constructed that the reader enjoys that eroticism from afar.

The story line is not predictable. The devil holds all the cards, even though the tarot cards where laid down on (Fate’s,) Mistress Rowena, the main character’s table to be read. Plotting along, two intertwining love affairs are produced, which leaves you thinking as to who is literally on top, until the end.

For a short interlude with the loving pleasures of intimacy and the devil’s playfulness, I recommend Ms. Charity Parkerson’s The Wizard & The Wanton for a night or an afternoon of delectable reading.
