The Enchanted by Genevra Thorne
"First thoughts about the story: This book is for 17+ readers due to sexual content starting in the last 16 chapters. The story was good and had a meaningful plot. To me, it was a different take of fairies, where I previously read literature depict..." Read more of this review »

"Highly recommended for those who want a perfect mesh of fantasy and romance in the 21st century.

Pros: The romance between Samantha and Marrkiya/Marcus is exciting, hot, and heavy. Samantha is a virgin (slightly unbelievable) and a writer just move..." Read more of this review »
Paula Quinn liked a quote
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis

“I am a cold hearted, ruthless bastard who sees what he wants and takes it. Is that not so?" He stepped closer to her, too close. His voice, no longer tender, was like the growl of a hungry wolf. "You think I don't want you." He ran his fingers over the pulse beat of her throat..."But I do.”

Mary Thanks for the friendship, Paula!
Have a great day & Happy Reading!
Cheers, Mary


Mary E Paula,
Thanks for friending me. I enjoy your writing and have read all of your books. Can't wait until Children of the Mist #4, Colin's story comes out. My eyes still get misty when I re-read Mairi's epligoue! sniff

Am I the only fan of epilogues??


Milton Esitubi Mary Anita And The Second Liberation In Kenya Consider reading this interesting book full of African passion and flavour, culture, social life and politics.

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Paul. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite the prolific author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
