I was a demon-eater and she was like an angel.

So I’d sent her away…

Now she’s back, stronger than ever, and tempting my black soul to let her in.

 ~Dane Kershaw, Spirit Freed

Brave the shadows, be the light.

 

 

“Faria’s Whisper Cove series blends compelling suspense with an engaging romance!”New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Virna DePaul

Sworn off Dark Magic… Riiight

Dane Kershaw never let his ego, or his ability to absorb evil spirits, stand in the way of duty and doing what is right. That included sending away the woman he loves so she could have a normal life. But Abigail’s returned to town, stronger than ever, and tempting him to protect her from his secret once again. At the scene of an accident, the firefighter risks his life rescuing a child from an unknown evil force and must unleash his abilities, exposing that part of himself he’s kept hidden from Abigail.

She’ll do anything to learn the truth…Freed from the wrong side of curses and spells, Abigail tried to live a normal life away from Whisper Cove, away from Dane… And failed. Beckoned home by an unnerving feeling Abigail believes only Dane can explain, she faces Dane again only to witness his body transform into a superhuman with inhuman strength—a beast. Now, the new town reporter will do anything to learn how to heal him…

As Dane rallies fellow wounded firefighters and local men-in-uniform for a fundraising pin-up calendar to help the injured child, Abigail agrees to photograph the event. Together, they reenter the mystical world of Whisper Cove, confront the evil force that hunts for their powers, and race to decipher the magical elements that link them together. With their second chance at love on the line, will they survive descending into the world of dark magic or will embracing their powers be the key to setting their spirits free?

“Faria’s Whisper Cove series blends compelling suspense with an engaging romance!” –New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Virna DePaul

Sworn off Dark Magic… Riiight Dane Kershaw never let his ego stand in the way of duty and doing what is right. When the firefighter is injured in a horrific fire that nearly steals a precious child’s life, he sets his pain aside and rallies fellow wounded firefighters for a beach-side fundraising pin-up calendar…if only he can find a worthy photographer.

Only on one condition… Freed from the wrong side of curses and spells, the last thing Abigail Haven wants is to reconnect with the thrill-seeking heartthrob…until Dane silkily summons her to Whisper Cove with a desperate plea: Photograph the calendar and help raise funds to save a little girl’s life.

But, when Abigail discovers Dane’s human image is degrading while his spirit image is becoming dominant, both Abigail and Dane race to decipher the magical elements. With their second chance at love on the line, will they survive descending into the world of dark magic or will embracing curses and spells be the key to setting their spirits free?

I look forward to hearing what you think about SPIRIT FREED and love reviews *wink*! Stop by my Facebook page with your questions and comments on Valentine’s Day. I love chatting with readers and can’t wait to party with you!

Happy Reading,

Cyndi

“…a wonderful story about love, best friends turning to lovers, and figuring out what you really want out of life.” Reviewer

Maggie leaned in, brushed her lips against Garrett’s, and shimmied closer. “Don’t be afraid to get close.”

He twined his legs with hers, thought about how the pig-tailed ten-year-old had transformed into a beauty queen, now safely tucked into his arms. “I thought we had a dance class?'”

She whispered, “Class doesn’t begin for half an hour.”

He tasted her smile, tasted sunshine on a stormy night. The way his body tingled from her chest, tummy, and thighs pressed tight against his might as well have been a lightning bolt that struck deep and fired him up inside. He could think of nothing else but claiming her as his.

Best friends to lovers never felt so good.

Halloween Treat (Prizes)

 FariaHalloweenSR

Just in time for Halloween, Spirit Returned is out and receiving wonderful reviews. I want to thank everyone who has FB shared, tweeted, or featured Mason and Katrina’s story on their blog! Halloween holds special memories for me that include an elementary mummy costume fiasco where my bindings simply unraveled! I’ve been a princess, a witch more times than I can count because I fell in love with both Wizard of Oz witches, a tattered Frankenstein’s bride…and even Daisy Duke—Yikes!

In celebration of my new release—and I hope you add Spirit Returned to tonight’s Halloween reading venue—one lucky commenter will win a digital copy of Spirit Returned by sharing their Halloween Costume successes and/or disasters. Also, don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter below for more prizes!

“Faria’s Whisper Cove series blends compelling suspense with an engaging romance!”

-New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Virna DePaul

Spirit Returned reunites former lovers Mason and Katrina for a magical journey. The two are challenged with breaking the curse that haunts the families of Whisper Cove. But, can their love overcome the heartache of their past?

The exciting continuation of the Whisper Cove series follows with Mason and Katrina’s story….

Mason Jayme is rumored to be a healer and the one prophesized to save his hometown of Whisper Cove from an ancient Lover’s Curse. Until that curse is broken, however, he has no business taking a lover—a lesson harshly learned after Mason sleeps with his first love, Katrina Rendon. Believing he’s the reason Katrina was burned and scarred, Mason leaves Whisper Cove, rejecting any notion he can be good for anyone, let alone a whole town.

Katrina was far more devastated by Mason’s rejection than the injuries she sustained in a fire. She wants nothing to do with him—until her father falls ill, and the only way to save him is with Mason’s healing skills. When Mason returns to Whisper Cove, he promises not only to help her father but to help Katrina open her burn victim retreat. Once reunited, the passion between Katrina and Mason sparks higher than ever.

But, when Katrina’s soul is threatened by an Original Spirit who has claimed Mason’s body as his own, she’s caught in a whirlwind of spirit possessions and secret rituals. This time, Mason’s ready to risk death by fire in order to save Katrina and their love.
