As the nights are drawing in, the days are getting shorter, the temperature is getting colder, trees are becoming beautiful shades of reds, yellows and golds, the extra layers are coming out, and the smell of pumpkin-spiced candles are wafting throughout people’s homes. That's when you know Autumn is here.
Autumn means we are very close to the end of the year, which is the time most of us reflect, why not feed your mind with knowledge and imagination with these fantastic reads!
So, grab a book and make your favourite hot beverage (like a pumpkin spice latte) for a cosy evening in ...
We meet a broadcast eof witches, werewolves, vampires and mermaids set in a supernatural world. Predictably, therefore, they have supernatural abilities. Hunter Moon, for example, is a werewolf and can move seamlessly in and out of his wolf form. He was born on an especially powerful autumn solstice and is thus the perfect candidate to undo a long-standing curse on a clan of witches. This curse compels them to live forever, aging but not dying, definitely not a pleasant destiny. Since Hunter's soul needs to be sacrificed in order to break this curse, it is understandable that he attempts to escape this fate! He has some sticky moments, however.
Meanwhile, there is a unique plant, the mortal bloom. The slightest contact with this plant has an irreversible effect concerning mortality and immortality and thus requires a secret guardianship not easy to achieve.
The action moves swiftly from one scene to the next, assisted by the supernatural abilities of the characters. Werewolf or witch they may be, but their very ‘human' friendships, strengths and failings are the ingredients which engage us all too human readers and create a bond of sympathy between us.
cWho can forget about their first love?
Anna and Paul are two young lovers seemingly destined not to be together, not if Paul's mother has anything to say about it. And she has. By keeping them from each other, the two young lovers are led to believe each has forgotten about the other.
The years pass and Anna enjoys family life, busy bringing up her daughter, Emma, with her husband Gordy, a man who fell in love with Anna despite her being pregnant with another man's child - something that was rather frowned upon in the 1950s. She also embarks on a successful career as a businesswoman and life couldn't be better. Except that deep at the back of her mind is the thought of Paul, her forgotten love.
The Water's Edge
Claudia and Jack already have a strong and satisfying business relationship, but when Jack is offered a job that will take him to the other side of the world, it throws a new and urgent light on their mutual attraction.
Claudia's unsatisfactory relationship with her husband and Jack's failing marriage propel them into a sudden and intense affair just before he leaves for Singapore.
They promise they will speak often and meet again as soon as they can. They also commit to be completely open and honest with each other.

Claudia's journey into sex, submission and sensuality is matched by Jack's adventures in dominance overseas. They share their most intimate discoveries over long-distance phone calls, but will their explicit honesty bring them closer together... or tear them apart?
