Love and Light

8 Books

A psychologist with intimacy issues, a man with secrets, and murder amid the madness of New Orleans Mardi Gras…where no one is what they seem, and evil is only a whisper away.

 

Rita Brooks has her life in control, with a satisfying job and an online relationship with a man a safe distance away. But before she can meet Brian in person, Rita is nearly killed in a horrific accident. She emerges from a coma remembering a cryptic message given to her by another soul. When Brian’s brother, Christopher, shows up, demanding to know her part in his suicide attempt, she’s sure that soul was Brian. To make sense of his urgent message, she must go to New Orleans.


Christopher is the shadow to Brian’s light, everything that both intimidates and draws her. Unfortunately, she needs his help, because Brian had shadows, too, and someone is trying to kill her to keep those shadows secret. Amidst the chaotic revelry of Mardi Gras, she is plunged into a bizarre masquerade where masks conceal dark secrets, deep longings … and murderous intent.

A young girl is missing, and her only hope is a blind woman who can see through her eyes...


Eight-year-old Phaedra Burns has been kidnapped by a madman who believes her sacrifice will assuage his rage. Olivia Howe knows that rage; sixteen years ago, she escaped his clutches. The psychological trauma stole her sight but gave her something in return: a psychic connection to abducted children. Now, that connection is Phaedra’s only hope, if Olivia can face the terrors of her past — and an inescapable new nightmare.

Phaedra’s kidnapping is the case that could push Detective Max Callahan over the edge. Especially when his key witness — or suspect — is a beautiful blind woman with a crazy claim. But her fragile beauty isn’t the only thing that draws him to her. And as their lives and passion twist together, a killer stalks their every move.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "The plotline of paranormal mystery, Now You See Me [Blindsight], is similar to many other thrillers of this ilk, but its sensitive characterizations and incisive descriptions separate it from the pack. ...

Though Wainscott hasn't yet reached the popularity of Kay Hooper or Lisa Jackson, this intoxicating thriller is on par with those authors' best works." – Publishers Weekly

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The plot has more twists and turns than a labyrinth, and the suspense just keeps building. Readers will be on the edge of their seats for most of this white-knuckle thriller. With characters and a story you'll remember long after the last page is turned, NOW YOU SEE ME [Blindsight] is a strong contender for the best romantic suspense book of the year.” ~ Susan Lantz, newandusedbooks.com

He knows things about her that no one could know; he makes her feel things she never knew she could feel … and he's come back to warn her that a killer is watching her.


Although Katie grew up in Possum Holler, Georgia, she feels isolated and disconnected from the town’s residents—aside from her loving but oppressive husband. And while her job as his vet assistant is fulfilling, her growing discontent becomes uneasiness when local girls start disappearing.


Then, the boy who helped her through a horrible time in her childhood, and who was sent away because of that help, has come back to town. Spooky Silas, as he was known then, helps open her eyes to the emotional manipulation of the man she married, encouraging the return of her feisty self.


But that’s not the reason Silas has returned. He knows something about the missing girls. And he knows Katie is next. He has always loved Katie but stayed away to keep her safe from the shadowy abilities he possesses. Those abilities may help, or they might ultimately plunge her into more danger as he grows closer to the killer … whose face is terrifyingly familiar.

Hallie awoke in the wrong body, but in the arms of the right man… Sure she'd made mistakes, but this was taking atonement way too far.


On the brink of a bitter divorce when she was struck by a cerebral hemorrhage, Hallie died, only to discover her life wasn’t over. She'd been given a second chance and reawakened as Marti West, a quiet but calculating waitress in a Florida hick town. Even worse for the former party girl, she’s carrying the child of Jesse West, the Southern stranger Marti tricked into marriage.


All Hallie wants, or so she thinks, is to return to California. But she can’t resist her racecar driver husband’s one request: stay until she has his baby. Soon, she’s having a hard time resisting her newfound feelings for her sexy country-music-loving husband, as well as his warm, tight-knit family. As she struggles to adjust to her new life and conflicting feelings, Hallie finds herself in a race of her own: to uncover the truth behind a savage attack before the assailant—who meant to kill Marti—returns to finish the job.
