Romance Paranormal

As an independent witch living off the grid, Jessie Leigh has spent her life running, trying to blend in among the faceless drudges in the rebuilt city. She thought she was finally safe, but now she's been found in a New Seattle strip club—by a hard-eyed man on a mission to destroy her kind.

A soldier of the Holy Order, Silas Smith believes in the cause: trawling the fringes of society for the murderous witches who threaten what's left of the world. Forced into a twisting web of half-truths and lies, he has to stay close to the most sensuous and electrifying woman he has ever seen and manipulate her into leading him to the witch he has to kill: her brother. Silas doesn't know that Jessie's his enemy, only that he wants her, needs her, even as he lies to her . . . and must protect her until his final breath.

Re: Blood Of The Wicked

Most mothers have a sixth sense about what there children are up to - does this mack them a witch? Some may think so and that is how the stories start to spread about. Word of mouth is a powerful tool to spread slander. Yes I beleive there are stranger things than we realize and alot is kept quiet so they are not singled out - a shame but I understand the reasoning.
(Barbara Hanson 8:49am June 13, 2011)

I do believe that some things today would/could be considered witchcraft. I know that in my family we have a "sense" sometimes. People who will hurt us or a situation that just "feels" right/wrong. Sometimes my children and I call each other because we just felt like something was up.
Patti Paonessa 9:48am June 13, 2011)

I think that most women have psychic powers whether they realize it or not...and the name "witch" was given to the women who utilized these powers because some people just didn't know how to except these women.....and I say "More power to these women"
Dawn Staniszeski 9:50am June 13, 2011)

I'm not a beliver in witchcraft or anything supernatural. I do feel everyone does posess a sixth sense, just some people are more sensitive.
Sheila True 9:55am June 13, 2011)

I'm not sure what I believe in regards to all this. My initial reaction is I do not believe in witchcraft or the supernatural. Having said that I know there is much we don't know about the workings of the world and the human condition. I guess I have a healthy dose of skepticism but leave the door open to all possibilities.
Holly Caulfield 11:23am June 13, 2011)

I'm not sure if I'm a beliver but I do know that when something bad is going to happen or one of my kids is hurt I get this feeling in my chest and it just will not go away until I find out what it is and I just have to say I HATE the feeling.
Vickie Hightower 11:27am June 13, 2011)

I do believe that there are people with psychic abilities. I know of 2 people in particular, and they're both harmless. One is more into astrology and she also does readings connecting you with people from your past. I went as an "unbeliever," but without giving her any information, she told me things that totally blew me away!! The 2nd person I know took a course in reading tarot cards. When she did a reading for me, she said she was just going to read what the cards said, and had no idea what any of it was about. Anyway, she was right on the money!! I have been known to say things to friends in advance as a warning of sorts that have come true as well, so I suppose that we all have a gift inside of us. We just have to learn how to cultivate it. At least that's what I've been told. Sorry to get so long-winded. I would absolutely "love" to read your book!! Congratulations!!
Peggy Roberson 11:33am June 13, 2011)

I too believe we need to learn to cultivate the gifts we have been given, The
powers of the human mind are to a great deal unknown. We are at the
beginning of what will make us aware of the powers we have and the way and
need to use them. Anything is possible. I knew when my grandfather was
going to die and when someone I loved had been hospitalized in critical
condition. My gift is neither consistent or controllable. I also foresaw my
son's emergency surgery more that a week ahead of time but it was open to
interpretation. Science fiction foresaw much of our current tech gadgets and
their multiple uses. Paranormals are now foreseeing the gifts most of us have
within our conciousness and asking us to find out more.
Sandra Spilecki 11:52am June 13, 2011)

While it's nice to think we have the possiblility of some supernatural powers going on, the gifts of observation and insight fall to most of us--when we pay attention, we are all more skilled than we might imagine
Janet Martin 11:57am June 13, 2011)

There are too many things that happen that can't be explained for me to not believe in the supernatural or paranormal or psychics...
Leisa Prater 12:12pm June 13, 2011)

Women's intuition is likely to be perceived as witchcraft, especially by the men who have been caught doing something they shouldn't have been doing!
Jody Hollenbeck 12:25pm June 13, 2011)

I do believe there are abilities that could be considered witchcraft. Some people get a feeling that something is going to happen before it does. Yes I believe that there are aspects of the paranormal that are real.
Kara Lepard 12:46pm June 13, 2011)

I believe that some people can sense the future or your tendencies to intersect in certain categories that some call witchcraft or psychic. Practicing alternative Medicine like Reiki II and Therapeutic Touch has given me the ability to occasionally read people across the room. The first time it happened gave me goosebumps.
Alyson Widen 1:54pm June 13, 2011)

I grew up with a Gypsy grandmother so yes, I believe in a lot
of stuff but mainly because I have experienced my own fair
share of intuitive dreams, moments and thoughts. I am an
Empath too so there that to add to the mix. And I am super
hard on watches.
Michele Powell 2:00pm June 13, 2011)

I think that their are some people that are stil archaic in their thinking. I think that some people fear those that have knowledge beforehand, knowledge beyond explaination. Are people still superstitious in this day and age, avoiding black cats and walking under ladders? My personal belief is that the veil between this world and the next is thinning and if you are open - it will reveal itself. I think there is more out there than meets the eye, children knowing people, places, things, and occupations way beyond their time and years and understanding. I also think that people thought that if you did not conform, you were a witch.. think how much sadder the world would be without those "witches".
Carla Carlson 2:02pm June 13, 2011)

I believe there are some people that have a very strong intuition that might make it seem like they have great luck or the ability to see the future. I also think there are highly empathetic people that can read the emotions of others very well. It might seem like they can read minds but they are just highly observant. Psychologists and jury consultants might be good jobs for those people.

I do believe that some people are gifted with stronger senses than the rest of us. It is a natural talent like artistic or musical skills.
Stacie Deramo 2:05pm June 13, 2011)

I believe that there are things that can not be explained, that some people have extra senses or talents... so I believe in paranormal...
Colleen Conklin 2:08pm June 13, 2011)

i have a favorite quote"there are more things in heaven and earth...",well that is the jist of it. so yes i can say i believe there are things beyond myself and understanding but i am not sure if that means witchcraft or not.
Tammy Ramey 2:43pm June 13, 2011)

I think all things are possible and try to stay open minded about everything. There are soooo many things out there that we no nothing about. My answer is always "why not!"
Jeanne Sheats 2:53pm June 13, 2011)

There is so much out there that we cannot close our eyes to all the possibilities; it's quite in the realm of believable that some are psychic, telekinetic etc...
Diane Sadler 3:40pm June 13, 2011)

i believe there is such a thing that can be considered as witchcraft .. i mean there is genuine ppl out there that caN do voodoo , spells and that have psychic abilities and the ones that can "talk" to spirits ...
Rachael Kennedy 3:59pm June 13, 2011)

i do believe in magic and witchcraft..
Jennifer Beck 4:22pm June 13, 2011)

I totally believe in psychic ability and I love watching ghost shows. The cover of your book blows me away! Good luck in your future endeavors!
Renee Pajda 5:00pm June 13, 2011)

I think being intuitive, or following your instincts, may have been considered witchcraft at one time.
Mary Preston 7:19pm June 13, 2011)

YES, I believe in magic and witches and lots of other supernatural things too. This Book sounds amazing and I would love to Win too. Thanks for entering me in your great contest and GOD bless everyone too. Thank YOU, Cecilia
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 8:04pm June 13, 2011)

I believe that there are some areas of the paranormal world that are real. I've seen enough reports to make me agree with some of them.
Leni Kaye 8:55pm June 13, 2011)

I do believe there are paranormal things that are real, even if it is nothing more than the power of the mind.
Lisa Kendall 9:27pm June 13, 2011)

Definitly - paranormal abilities are probably naturally stronger in some people, just like other abilities. The brain is a wondrous thing that we are just beginning to learn about it's complexities.
Diane Sallans 9:33pm June 13, 2011)

I love when authors twist things around. "Not my momma's witches" indeed!
Jennifer Beyer 10:00pm June 13, 2011)

I believe.
Jennie Smith 10:17pm June 13, 2011)

Photograhpic memories... Some people do have them... That's not magic but some people will probably think it's magic....

Congrats on your book btw! :) Sounds like a great read. :)
May Pau 10:34pm June 13, 2011)

Witchcraft and paranormal,I'm not sure I believe. But instincts ,yes
Deb Pelletier 11:22pm June 13, 2011)

This book sounds good. Ever since reading A Discovery of Witches, I've wanted to read more "witch" stories.
Molly Wilsbacher 11:55pm June 13, 2011)

In answer to your question, I honestly don't know. But the possibilities are a wonderful thing to explore.
G. Bisbjerg 12:48pm June 14, 2011)

Yes, I absolutely do!
Robin Daily 12:50pm June 14, 2011)

Of course there are. These days we call them premonitions, but at one time or another we all say something off hand that includes details and it comes to pass. We also call them guardian angels when we escape a tragedy that could have been more serious. How often have you said someone must have been looking out for you? Have you ever chosen to get someone a shirt only to find they already own it or someone else got them the exact same thing? We just don't pay too much attention to it but it is there, buried in the back of our minds.
Christina Harrison 3:09am June 14, 2011)

Yes I do think there are more things happening than can be accounted
for with science.
Lindsey Ekland 4:34am June 14, 2011)

It's shocking to see how knowledge that helped people was considered witchcraft. Glad those dark times are over!
Birgit Lehner 7:00am June 14, 2011)

Yes, I do. All things are possible. Your books sound good.
