I suppose you can consider a time-travel a paranormal. Sisters in Time has been my best selling book for a reason, and I'm currently working on another. Here's the blurb from SIT available on Amazon and at Eternal Press in both print and download:

When two women from different eras switch bodies and time, you can bet there are more sparks involved than the electrical storm that caused the time-travel. A modern-day attorney is no match for the pioneer wife she replaces...how can you live without a cell phone, a blow dryer and mascara? And the prim and proper Mariah isn't the least bit prepared for the fashion, fuss and modern gadgets that come with being in the 20th century. She almost faints when she takes her first plane ride. Will they find a way back to their own husbands and time?

Here's my blurb for "Cursed Mates," my werewolf paranormal romance:

Nick Radford is a reluctant werewolf who's been fighting the Beast within for nearly 500 years. He's never killed a human, but the Beast is gaining strength and Nick may not be able to ward off his inner demon much longer.

Kyla Yaeger is an elite were-hunter with a scarred past. Her life's mission is to slay the werewolves that slaughtered her parents. Her quest has brought her to Maine, where she's been summoned to destroy the werewolf terrorizing the quaint little village of Heavensent. The last thing she needs is to get distracted by her mysterious--not to mention hunky--new neighbor, Nick Radford.

By the time Kyla learns Nick is her target, she's already fallen for him, making her task of killing him that much harder. She is torn between her love for him and her duty to kill her sworn enemy. Nick fights his forbidden love for Kyla, knowing she is duty-bound to kill him. Kyla and Nick must join forces to fight an even bigger threat--one that will destroy all humanity. Only by their combined powers, can they destroy the evil and bring an end to a centuries old curse.

Here's the blurb for my book, "The Secrets on Forest Bend." A handsome hero, an intriguing woman, and a vengeful ghost.

When Detective Adam Campbell learns that a WWII gun is connected to several murders he’s investigating, he hopes that tracking down the killer will be as easy as tracing the gun’s history. When he meets Jillian Whitmeyer, the last known owner of the weapon, the case becomes anything but simple.
Adam soon learns that people who get close to Jillian have a bad habit of turning up dead. Jillian claims that the spirit of her sister, accidently killed with that same gun, is responsible for the deaths. She warns Adam that he is likely to become the next victim. Adam’s been a lousy judge of women in the past and this one’s obviously a nut case. Or is she? How does a just-the-facts detective deal with a ghostly serial killer and the sexy-as-hell sister she won’t set free?

Thanks for hosting, Ann Katheryn.

Here's a blurb from my novella "Love, Vampire Style."

Val is living la Vida American until elder brother Marcus decides it's time he settle down. Val meets this order by running away, back to Transylvania, where he meets a pretty Olde Worlde Miss.

Val started toward the stairs, only to pause as he heard footsteps outside the arch. Dropping his pack, he stepped to the side of the door, waiting to see who was there.

The person came inside—a bright-haired girl in blue jeans and a long-sleeved sweater. She stopped, saw his pack and walked over to it and Val stepped behind her, one hand going about her waist, the other over her mouth.

With a muffled squeak against his hand, she began to struggle. He gave her a vicious shake, placing his mouth close to her ear, saying in Romanian, “What are you doing here? This is private land.”

The words felt harsh and foreign in his mouth.

The next thing he knew, he was sailing over her head to land with a dust-filled crash. As the soil settled around him, the foyer blurred, seeming to spin.

When he opened his eyes again, he looked up to see the girl hovering over him in some kind of karate-like crouch, one hand extended, the other clenched into a fist. He almost expected her to yell “Yee-hah!” or something.

I love romantic ghost stories and this is my favorite that I wrote: Final Words.

A near-fatal hit-and-run leaves Medical Examiner Emma St. Clair able to talk to the spirits of people she autopsies. With his sister’s hit-and-run death unsolved, Detective Jason MacKenzie vows to bring this lethal driver to justice. When a serial killer throws them together, will her ability to talk to ghosts prove deadly…in love and life?

Here's my blurb for SHADOWS OF THE SOUL. It's free for a limited time on Amazon Kindle. I have a video and contest up on my website to celebrate.

Book blurb:

When a Grigori prince and a demon huntress team up to find the antidote to a supernatural disease, the balance between good and evil is forever altered.

A fallen angel...
A human scholar...
A race against time...

Isabel Godfroie Heart is a Paradisian Scholar-an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell-who's suffering from memory loss. During her last battle, a dark force erased specific portions of her past life memories. Now she remembers little of times past, save for the fact she's a demon slayer mentored by the archangel Gabriel. When ordered to a new post to help translate a volume of ancient text from a forbidden verse, Isabel is forced to work with the dark prince Nicolai Valentine, a soul who may or may not be responsible for her memory loss. If only she didn't find the tempting creature so hard to resist...

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Nicolai Valentine is a prince of the Grigorcov, the children of the fallen sons of God. Searching for the lost chalice that will save his kin from eternal damnation, Nicky unknowingly unleashes the Hadean Virus, a dark entity targeting members of the Grigorcov. Now the entity has been unleashed on man's world and Nicky's in a race against time to find the antidote that will stop this deadly parasite. But in order to keep the Hadean virus from attacking again, Nicolai must enlist the help of Isabel Godfroie Heart, the Paradisian Scholar he was unable to save from the wrath of Hell centuries ago...

A vampire who doesn't know she's a vampire! Absolution by P. L. Parker

For years, travelers in the French Vosges Mountains heard the wailing of a woman echo in the hollows. Her cries went unbidden. No one was brave enough to seek out the source. Over time, the screams lessen, then stop. Eventually, even the memories slipped away, forgotten.

Six centuries later, two over-eager research assistants find and release the young half vampire, Chloe—unaware of events they unwittingly unleash with her.

Far away, other forces are aware of her awakening. Zaccarius, greatest of all the Slayers, is sent by the Council of Nine to seek out Chloe, determine her worth and render justice. Enticed by her purity and innocence, he becomes her protector. However, Jochad, the Dark Master and his army of evil vampires are eager to claim Chloe.

In the battle that ensues, Zaccarius falls beneath Jochad’s army. To save her lover, Chloe must make a choice. Ancient and dying, Jochad needs her blood to reanimate. His ultimatum—her blood or Zaccarius’ life.

Here's a blurb from my book, "Pixie Dust":

*A lonesome fairy with no clue how to wield her powerful magic.

*A ruggedly handsome warlock torn between his past and his present.

*A five hundred year old, sinfully sexy vampire who's obsessed with solving the mystery of a particularly interesting bartender.

Karli Lane is the only fairy left on the planet. Vampires had driven her race to near extinction, causing the others to return to their homeland over twenty years ago. Orphaned at a young age, she was forced to hide her identity in a world full of exposed supernaturals.


Facing her upcoming immortality, her life has become a complicated mess. A new employer and a gruesome murder bring two incredibly complex men into her life, making matters worse. She finds herself riding a non-stop emotional roller coaster while trying to figure out who she is, how to control her powers, and most importantly, how to stay alive.

Available on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook or Smashwords.

My Blurb for Eternal Crimson

Their love was meant to last for an eternity, but when Rafe is taken by the Elder to punish his creator for his past sins, everything Cara's heart desired was stripped away. Unwillingly surrendered to the demon that dwelled in Gabriel, their lives are now intertwined with a blood and spiritual bond stronger than the power of her heart.

Rafe returns from his exile and discovers that Cara had been saved from the fate he had feared, but now she belonged to the vampire that sired him. Would the love they once shared be strong enough to break the ties of Eternal Crimson?

Discover the world of Singe Tsgian, where the vampire race began, and return to the endless nights through the doors of Tears of Crimson, the New Orleans Vampire Bar. Eternity starts here!

The Tears of Crimson Vampire Series was written from dreams ....we can't wait to fill yours. Just remember when you walk through these doors, you'll never look at vampire's the same way again!
