Author Spotlight week -Dreams and Divination by Stephanie Burkhart
I'm excited to announce my latest release, a historical paranormal romance called, "The Wolf's Torment." Set in the 1860's, the story takes place in Constanta, a Moldavian city nestled next to the Black Sea. Crown Prince Mihai Sigmaringen has a secret – he's a witch. Can he accept himself for who he is and save his family from a werewolf who threatens their lives?
"The Wolf's Torment" has an exotic locale and fantastical creatures, but Mihai, Viktor, Sonia, and Theresa are all too human and the story is about their humanity – with a little bit of dreams and divination peppered in, of course. –wink—
For witches, it's about feelings and their ability to sense the feelings of others. And Mihai and Theresa have been dreaming of each other since they were five. Why is this important? It speaks to the power of divination – the ability to "see" the future, but instead of using tea leaves and crystal balls as Professor Trewley does in Harry Potter, Mihai and Theresa use dreams. It's a concept close to the "kenning" in Scottish romantic historicals.
"Heart of Moldavia" is the FREE prequel to "The Wolf's Torment" and is one such dream. Theresa braves grave danger to give Mihai a Christmas gift as a werewolf recklessly purses her. Mihai realizes his intended is a woman – brave, clever, intriguing, and beautiful. Dare he allow his heart to love again? Will love give him the courage, strength, and resolve to save his family and a nation?
Visit Moldavia and let the characters humanity touch your heart.
