Breath (Three Days of Oblenite #1):

A Dark Fantasy MFM Menage Romance by Jean Lowe Carlson

Breath by Jean Lowe Carlson

This dark fantasy romance from new award winning epic fantasy and dark fantasy writer Jean Lowe Carlson explores sacrifice and love via sex and magic, in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. With a deep storytelling style similar to Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles and a flavor of fairytale magic, the Three Days of Oblenite dark fantasy trilogy is typical of Ms. Carlson’s style, of writing complex and emotional fantasy and sci fi for adults.


Cloistered because of a curse to kill by her kiss, Gryffine has shut down her passion and her life. But the kindness of dashing bartender Jessup steals her from her isolation and returns her pleasure. Yet when Gryffine’s soulmate arrives on her doorstep with her same curse, can she refuse his electrifying pull, to be with this dark lover to her own demise? And can the kindness of the true love she’s found win all, even past death’s door and into the darkness?


What Readers Are Saying:

“Absolutely wonderful story. Tastefully erotic, this beautiful story of love, life, and death is a page-turner.” – Rob C., Goodreads Review


“I really enjoyed this story, beautiful writing – great story flow, and the first couple of chapters just sucked me right in. It was kinda spooky and Stephen King-ish…” – Didi B., Goodreads Review

Greeting, all! I am happy to announce that I have updated the manuscript of BLACKMARK (The Kingsmen Chronicles, Book 1) in the Kindle store and in the print version, so it is completely typo-free! I had a complaint on Amazon that there were too many mistakes, and lo and behold while I was making the audiobook (out on Audible, iTunes and Amazon sometime in late October!) I did find a bunch. So, corrections made! Enjoy a typo-free version of BLACKMARK today!

RIDDLE IN STONE TRILOGY – Omnibus Edition – by Robert Evert


Where to Buy:
Amazon: Riddle in Stone Omnibus Edition


Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 12.29.15 PM

Jean’s Review: The Riddle in Stone series hearkens back to a classic style of storytelling much like Tolkien, where heroes are small people driven by secret aims they hold in their hearts. They adventure not because they want to make kingdoms turn, but because they follow what drives them. Robert Evert’s hero Edmund starts off as a bookish, sedentary man with an inner temper he doesn’t know how to use and a stutter that keeps him from expressing himself. Put him through devastating rigors in a goblin mine and from the evil Undead King, and Edmund comes out a honed, bitter, and accomplished hero. Evert’s writing is fast and gritty, not for the weak of stomach but thoroughly enjoyable, weaving a tale that grips more as you dive further and further into Edmund’s hardships and quest. I enjoyed it more and more as the pages turned, until I was so caught up in the flow that I couldn’t wait to hit the next chapter running!
