For folks who like their Christmas a little twisted, seven tales of charms and magic, curses and intrigue...
Snap up this Christmas collection and spice up those frigid winter nights with a great story at an irresistible price. Seven riveting romances by award winning authors for $0.99. The perfect gift for you favorite bookworm. (Regular price: $4.99)
They range from the sweet and funny love story “A Love Charm for Dakota” by Carly Carson to the sexy wicked and heartbreaking “How Lovely Your Branches” by Kara Ashley Dey and my favourite of the compilation, “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Andra Brynn.
Andra weaves an incredible tale of sacrifice and desperate longing with her ever-poetic prose. I literally felt the barren cold of the landscape and the hopelessness of Ayla. My feelings vacillated wildly between sadness and anger. So much so, I had to stop for a moment to take it all in after I finished it!
“She takes a shower that evening, keeping the door locked and letting the hot water flow over her. It is scalding and her skin turns pink beneath the onslaught. It could burn her away if she let it, but after a few minutes she exits the shower and dries herself. Her body is a foreign country beneath her hands. When she’d gone to college she’d tried to reclaim it, but it’s just as strange to her now as it was when she lay in her bed that first night in her dorm, her roommate snoozing gently on the bunk below. Then she’d run her fingers through her hair, down her arms, laced her fingers together, but nothing felt as though it were hers. He’d taken it all from her.”
“In the bleak midwinter, her weapons are her wounds.”
