THE STORM AND THE DARKNESS
By Sarah M. Cradit
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Only .99¢ (Sale ends August 30!)
Ana Deschanel has made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.
Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first winter storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown- Ana realizes that she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.
After a surprising encounter with Jonathan’s brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.
With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.

SEDUCED ACROSS TIME . . . BY THE PHANTOM!!
Murdered in his prime in 1896, the sexy, mysterious ghost of renowned tenor Jacques LeFevre haunts the spooky old St. Charles Opera House in New Orleans. Jacques’s lusty spirit still searches for the woman of his dreams, the diva with whom he can share life and the opera. When lovely Bella De La Rosa joins the modern-day theater troupe as a chorus girl, the phantom knows he has found his mate, and soon Jacques’s ghost lures beautiful Bella back in time to meet him as a real man . . .
Bella De La Rosa is destined to become a world-class singer, but devastating stage fright has consigned her to the chorus line. Then the phantom’s haunting voice calls to her . . . and she is seduced back in time to meet the real Jacques! Even as Bella reels at her apparent journey through time, the amorous rogue shamelessly pursues her—and, it seems, everything else in a skirt! Though equally intrigued by him, Bella is dismayed to find Jacques on a self-destructive path, inciting numerous jealousies among the theater troupe. In order to reform Jacques and save him from certain death, Bella must overcome all her fears and give herself to him in passion and in song . . . or he will forever become her phantom in time.
