Romance Paranormal | Romance Historical

After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch.

Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets.

Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.

Re: Night Thief

I visited Napoleon's tomb while in Paris. The coffin is a huge, strong dark wood casing, with curves upwards at the ends. This is set down in a round well-like smooth-walled basement and we look at it from above. Seems the French wanted to make very sure he wouldn't climb out and terrorise Europe again.
The more real and accurate your historic details are, the better in my view. Unless you are talking future history, in which case, as long as you can make a strong case that it 'might' turn out this way, who can argue?
(Clare O'Beara 6:27am October 25, 2012)

I actually seek out novels (fiction) with factual historical details. I have learned more history through these novels than I did in school! Is that possible? When I was younger and foolish I did not excel in history so reading has become an obsession with me. What's not to like learning some history mixed in with a little romance!
(
Beth Charette 6:40am October 25, 2012)

I love a mixture of genres (i.e. Historical Paranormals)! It
makes things more interesting.
(
Karin Anderson 8:11am October 25, 2012)

This is a very good sweeps...hope I win.
(
Bonnie Capuano 8:37am October 25, 2012)

It's fine to anchor paranormal with history. I like learning about both and the setting holds sway with creating a world in the imagination peopling it with characters that move back and forth in and out of reality.

Hi Clare -

I thought the exact same thing when I saw Napoleon's tomb in
Paris! LOL

Thanks for commenting!

Hi Beth -

I didn't like history in high school either, but I love it
in fiction! :) WHat does that say about us??? LOL

We just need some romance in our history, right? :)

I really like when the historical portions of a novel are factually correct. Otherwise, it takes me out of the narrative.
(
Pam Howell 10:24am October 25, 2012)

Sounds like an interesting book, I'd love to win it.
(
Wilma Frana 11:19am October 25, 2012)

It's a merge of two of my favorite things - history and paranormal. I love when a writer stays true to the historical backdrop, it makes the story multi dimensional.
(
Carla Carlson 12:04pm October 25, 2012)

I think some accurate historical info is just a real big plus in any type of novel.
(
Sue Farrell 12:11pm October 25, 2012)

I like some accurate history! I think it helps draw the reader in!
(
Rebecca Whitehead-Schwarz 12:20pm October 25, 2012)

I enjoy history in any genre of book. Though I love paranormals and having history in them makes them more interesting.
(
Larena Hubble 1:12pm October 25, 2012)

Any book, and for that matter, any Author that weaves History into their book, gets my full support!! I enjoy reading History, and give the Author kudos for taking the extra time and energy for finding out the facts, and putting them into their books. Keeping History alive is so important, especially when it's not skewed!! After reading the excerpt from your book, it left me wanting more!! Your book is definately on my TBR list, and I can see myself reading your book this fall, with a cup of hot cocoa or tea, and my kittens by my side. I might not need a hot beverage, though, because looking at the wonderful artwork on the cover, leaves you hot enough!! lol It does sound like a great book, and you can feel the flavor of Paris just by reading the excerpt.
(
Peggy Roberson 1:13pm October 25, 2012)

I LOVE PARANORMAL THAT WEAVES INTO HISTORCAL EVENTS ITS INTERESTING TO READ ABOUT. THEY ARE THE BEST TO READ.
(
Shelly Caggiano 1:25pm October 25, 2012)

I love books that weave in historical details - that way I can learn new facts while totally being pleasured by the storyline of the book. Your book sounds like a real winner - best of luck with it!
(
Nancy Reynolds 1:26pm October 25, 2012)

I am always so proud of an author who keeps correct historical facts in their writing. Good for you!
Blessings,

I think blending of true historical events and paranormal is a
great way to write!
(
Marguerite Guinn 2:07pm October 25, 2012)

That is so cool - i love both paranormal and historical so the
combo sounds great!
(
Eva Segerblom 2:34pm October 25, 2012)

Since I starting reading historical romances with an author who was excellent at integrating fact with fiction (Georgette Heyer), throwing the paranormal side in just makes it that much more interesting.

Later,

Hi Carla -

It was interesting writing a historical paranormal was like
merging two worlds into one book. Hard work, but very fun!

Hope you enjoy Night Thief! :)

I think that having real events intertwined with paranormal or other types of
romances is really interesting. The book sounds great and I like how it will
be a series. Thanks for sharing with us.

warm cup of chocolate and good read! Bliss.
(
Mary Hay 8:59pm October 25, 2012)

I'm that someone who believe in ghosts and everything supernaturals. So when paranormal intertwine with historical romance, I love it. There are things that goes bump in the night and they have been from the beginning of the world. We just turned a blind eye to it because we grew up in the world that "there is no such thing as ghosts" belief.
(
Kai Wong 9:49pm October 25, 2012)

Wow! I love true history in paranormals. I don't know about other readers but a
touch of reality makes paranormals more scary.
