4 Cherries for The Collector 5: The Crystal Flacon!

Can you say; "Doing the Happy Dance????
Four Cherries from Whipped Cream Reviews!
Here's what Fuschia had to say:
"This book did it for me, and I can't wait to get the others in the series (if there are any more). This story by Jeanne Barrack was a first by her for me but it won't be the last. Loved the concept of the story, enjoyed the tension between Abby and Antonio. If you are a fan of paranormal stories this has enough of a paranormal setting to satisfy in a short bite, equally with the contempory and mystery bits...this book is a keeper. And as I said in the opening paragraphs, I will be looking out for other Jeanne Barrack books."
Thank you so much, Fuschia!

New Outstanding Review for "The Shimmering Flame"

I am so thrilled! Another award for The Shimmering Flame from Simply Romance Reviews

Here's what Whitney had to say:

The Shimmering Flame by Jeanne Barrack is a fantasy packed adventure of life and love begun thousands of years ago and now being played out in the present.

This was a great book. The writing was crisp with vivid characterizations and descriptions and as a result you were immediately immersed in the lives and loves of Brigid as she struggles to combat an evil which has existed for thousands of years. The love scenes, both the real and imagined were vivid and compelling. Ms. Barrack has definitely left me panting for more. I can’t wait for the next installment of Brigid, Gabe and Ethan’s story.

Thanks, Whitney!
