The Charmed Trilogy, Book 1

“This has to be a dream. This has to be a dream. This has to be a dream.”

Olivia Ann Greyson sees only one future for herself – to compose and perform the music she has loved since she was a child. But that future changes in an instant when a commuter train taking her to the city crashes and is attacked by, unbelievably, a coven of vampires! As the rabid creatures feed their thirst on the surviving passengers, Olivia is spared from an unthinkable fate because of the intervention of another vampire – Caleb Wolfe, a figure from her past who, for reasons he doesn’t understand himself, would do anything to protect her.

After one familiar touch, Olivia recognizes the man behind the vampire. Soon love and a powerful supernatural connection begins to grow between them. But with that connection Olivia starts to notice startling changes happening within herself, and violent events make it clear that the vampire coven which wanted her the night of the train crash won’t stop until they have her.

Time is running out for Olivia and Caleb to discover why all this is happening. And the answers they find may painfully tear their new found love apart.
THE CHARMED will be on sale for ONLY $0.99 from May 13 - 27 on:

The Charmed Trilogy, Book 2

“It was the blood! The blood was somehow doing this to me!”

Olivia Ann Greyson is a Charmer, a Dhampir with the power to lure the supernatural world’s most dangerous of creatures – and she’s in an impossible situation. She must leave behind Caleb Wolfe, the strong, protective vampire she has fallen madly in love with, in order to learn how to protect herself from the vampires, shifters and demons that will be drawn to her for the rest of her life.
Human Guardian, Alec Lambert, has been assigned to see to Olivia’s training by the organization he belongs to, which is known simply as The Brethren. He takes Olivia to the group’s stronghold in the mountainous regions of Alberta, Canada, where she discovers the answers to her family’s painful past and the extent to which those hunting her will go to capture her. But she also uncovers many secrets and even more questions about this mysterious group she has trusted to protect her – secrets that will have her fighting to get back to the man she left behind.

. . . but will it be too late?
Available now on Amazon, Smashwords, BN and The iBookstore.

The Charmed Trilogy, Book 3

“You think you know him better than I do? Interesting . . . and so boringly human.”

Over a year has passed since Olivia Ann Greyson discovered that she is a Charmer, a Dhampir fated to be part of the violent supernatural world that surrounds our human one. In that time, she has strengthened herself physically, learned of her family’s secret past, and found a deep and abiding love with the strongest man she has ever met, Daywalker Caleb Wolfe. But Olivia’s biggest challenge still lies ahead of her . . .

Dark vampire lord Luther Davin has been obsessed with capturing Olivia so he can use her special gifts for his own reasons. As Caleb and Olivia try to make a new life together with their coven, the Nightwalker’s attempts to capture her only intensify and inadvertently bring an unwelcome visitor from Caleb’s past barging back into his life.

She is Caelestis—Celeste to the modern world—and she claims to be Caleb’s first and rightful mate. Although Olivia has grown confident and secure in her relationship with Caleb, she soon realizes that Celeste sees herself as no less than a goddess among mere mortals and will stop at nothing to get Caleb back—which means Olivia herself must die!

When these two threats collide and fate steps in to pull Olivia away from her new family, will she be ready for her darkest hour and her greatest battle?
Available now on Amazon, Smashwords

I can't thank Christine enough for taking the time to write us a post about why we think vampires are sexy.

First off I would like to thank Carin and My Reading Obsession for having me here today to talk about my contemporary paranormal trilogy, The Charmed, and about what makes a vampire sexy.
What is it about these pale, unconscionable, bloodsucking demons of the night that so fascinates us as romance readers? Perhaps it’s because they’re not just pale, unconscionable, bloodsucking demons of the night anymore. They can be complex characters that are not entirely evil and . . . not entirely good. In essence, they’re the equivalent of a supernatural bad boy.
How can any woman resist that?
It’s the layers to a character that make for a memorable story, and when you start with a vampire that is conflicted and flawed you have the beginnings of a great romance.
In my Charmed Trilogy, our hero Caleb Wolfe is unbelievably strong, handsome and intelligent in that man-of-few-words-silent-type way that turns every woman’s stomach to the equivalent of silly putty. He’s a new vampire, easily capable of killing, but you empathize with him because the choices for his life were taken away so suddenly. Yet, you expect him to make the right choices going forward to be worthy of our heroine.
Naturally, just like in real life, if men made the right choices all the time there wouldn’t be much conflict for a story, especially a story that spans over three books. But bad choices can lead to some good twists and unexpected surprises.
I hope you will check out my Charmed Trilogy and see in Caleb why vampires are so sexy to you.

The Charmed is book one in The Charmed Trilogy these books really do need to be read in order to make sense so best start with this one :O)

Olivia is a young adult who has a gift for piano and has been visited by tragedy in her young life. She is a spunky, self effacing heroine who has no idea that her life is all about to change in very dramatic ways.

Caleb is young as far as vampires go, he is all about maintaining control of the monster within him and has learned to drink without killing. He rescues Olivia and is charmed by her from the start.

The world created by Christine Wenrick for the Charmed Trilogy is extremely well done, giving us a whole new take on how some vampires can walk during the day. We have good vampires and bad ones, your obligatory fanatical anti-vampire group, and a cast of secondary characters that really make the book that much better. I must say as much as I like the story between Caleb and Olivia I am hoping that in the second or third book we get to explore the relationship between Jax and Gemma.

With minor sex scenes this is a pretty tame book but the love and fire between the characters is still there.
