Paranormal Love Wednesdays

Paranormal Love Wednesdays is a weekly blog hop featuring paranormal stories. From witches to werewolves, vampires to berserkers, you name it we have it.


Excerpt form Bonded by Crimson, my debut novel, a paranormal romance published in January of 2012 and it is available in all formats at Black Opal Books, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble Kobobooks and All Romance eBooks




Rosalia’s stern expression caused Kate to wince. “I’m the only maid here, but this is the real lady of the house.” She stopped by the portrait of a young woman. Larger than life, it hung on the wall separating dining room from kitchen.
“This is the boys’ mother?” Kate couldn’t take her eyes off the oil painting. The woman was seated, her golden hair cascading down her shoulders. The artist had captured her with life-like accuracy. Her piercing, pale-green eyes stared from the canvass as if she were trying to say something. Her peach
complexion and soft features had an odd familiarity. The rose dress she was wearing seemed old fashioned, as if the late Mrs. Zrin was nostalgic about the times long gone.
Kate rubbed her bare arms as a sudden burst of cold air brushed against her. Did someone turn on the air-conditioning in the room? A strange intuition dragged her attention back to
the painting. An ink like dot appeared above the woman’s head and spread over the entire canvas.
Kate leaned closer, her body tingling, her pulse quickening. The drive must have torn on her nerves, because somehow the lady’s face blurred, and in the next moment Kate was looking at herself.
Her double’s eyes filled with blood. Kate gaped at the painting, struggling to breathe.
“Yes,” Rosalia said, snapping Kate out of the vision. The maid sighed. “The Master loved her so. He hasn’t been himself since.”
Kate nodded and swallowed hard. Had she really seen that?
