She is a hydromancist.
She manipulates water.
She can split the sea like Moses.
Labeled a colored person in her country, Maya doesn’t fit in. She doesn’t belong with the blacks, or the whites. ...more

I'm so happy you like this series! I draw a lot of inspiration from my travels, visiting exotic and mysterious locations. Most of my plot lines are driven by strong emotions (betrayal, love, deceit, etc.) and I build my stories around those.
Real live events often inspire the backdrop of the stories. For example, when I visited the village of Larmor-Baden in Brittany, France, someone was burning down houses and a police helicopter circled the bay, looking for the culprit. That's how the idea for Pyromancist was born, and why the story plays off in Larmor-Baden.
Regarding the 7 arts that inspired the series plot line, I discovered during my research that 7 arts were forbidden by the church during the Middle Ages, and I used these arts as themes for each book.
Happy future reading and thank you for your interest!

This is the fourth book in the Seven Forbidden Arts Series. I loved it!

Now older and working with the paranormal taskforce with her gift of hydromancy, she's on a dangerous unde ...more
As always...Pauls delivers a great love story full of intrigue, angst and hot love making! There were times in the story where I wondered exactly how the main character was going to get out of the jam she was in and sure enough, it made me read all the way to the very end to get answers.
The story follows Maya Martin, a Cape Town orphan turned gangster in her early years, who was found by Cain, the leader of a paranormal task force, for extraordinary abilities to control wate ...more

There really is not much I have to say about this book.....hell the whole series to date is just OUTSTANDING !!!
This is Maya and Tim's book. Maya has been in the previous books for me the ultimate bada*s, but in this book I definitely saw her softer side. Maya has a paranormal ability she can manipulate water. If only I could too, I would so soak a few people to the bone when they got on my nerves....yes, I am charmi ...more
Wow hot and sexy all rolled into one along with the paranormal heck yeah that makes for a damn good book.
So I started this book and I hit my first sex scene pretty early on and I started thinking to myself oh no please don't let this whole thing be rushed because that would ruin it. I even thought to myself I should drop a star because of it. I can honestly say I thought it turned out to be a pretty darn good book after all especially when we learn the sec ...more

I began this series with this book in general. It acts as enough of a standalone that you won't get lost in the details provided throughout the book that stem from the ...more
Her newest case is a slippery slope and a bumpy trail that is supposed to lead to Godfrey. The whole team is trying to find the animal that went after Kat and her baby. No one wants that kind of trash running around. Maya volunteers for this case but it will be her hardest yet.

Oh no. It is not my heart I am afraid off. It is my hormone level.
Ok so this book is not my cup of tea. I actively dislike erotica. Especially when a story is thinly disguised purely for the sake to get to the next hot scene.
This book actually has a strong story line carrying the erotica not centred around it. Still, it has enough erotic scenes to make me shy away.
That said. The story is really well written. The book is well edited and the plot is entertaining but if er ...more
This exhilarating page-turner had it all - romance, hot steamy sex, suspense, espionage, lots of action, compelling characters, a gripping plot and so much more. I was literally on the edg ...more
Find out ladies and gents!! This is a page turner book, Charmaine Pauls will take you to a world where deceit and betrayals abound.
I love this book and it seems like i'm reading one of Christine Feehan Sea Haven series in a different setting. I can't wait for the next story.
But I still liked the story well enough. The more explicit scene's, and there were a few of them I must say....They made me blush.
Still if this is what you like to read I am sure you will love this.
Note to the wise. If you have kiddo's do not listen to this book on text-to-speech.
I love Charmaine and as always she once again delivers!!! Hydromancist is the fourth book in the Seven Forbidden Arts series and it is Maya’s story. The book can be read as a stand alone but I do suggest that you read the previous books in the series to understand the whole dynamic.
