Top Supernatural Trilogy of 2012 by author karli Rush

It is the coming of a New Year and if you are into Supernatural fantasy and modern witches, and suspense, check out this Bewitching Author, Karli Rush, below is her trilogy, her Amazon Author Link and of Course Demon Bound, third book of a haunting and wicked trilogy. 

All I can say as a reader is Wow, this third book of the Crescent Bound Trilogy is all and so much more. 

"This third book of the series was powerful, sensual and an insightful plot, full of suspense and conflict that was a delight to read.There is many secrets and entertainment all packaged in a modern trilogy that haunts the reader's mind. The ending was a fiery climax, yet as the series is full of secrets so is the future of this author's creativity, this story was a stimulating and entertaining trilogy of the supernatural. Highly recommend this author if you are into a wild ride of reading and increased heartbeats as each character is faced with a confrontation and a sigh when the story concludes or does it?"


Crescent Bound, Book 1 was the first of the trilogy, it was the one that got me hook, and two and three were supernaturally entertaining. 

Raven Bound,  Book 2 of the Crescent Bound Series Review below

Presenting the Awesome  Third Book of the series, Demon Bound is available on Amazon on the 21st, so now you can see how this haunting trilogy concludes.

Book 2 Raven Bound  Review, and Book One is on

It is a story about witches, covens and mysteries and their beliefs, continuation of the first book Crescent Bound. It starts with Alyssa and Marc bonded as a married couple and their love is so deep they can feel each other's pain or confusion when separated. The author starts the story off with the couple and friends and their hobbies which was cars such as Mustangs and top of the line motorcycles, and their daily interaction with their friends who are all witches. It was entertaining to read about their outings and other interests, such as the songs, clothing and other daily topics young people are interested in. Then the story becomes more chilling as Alyssa is in trouble and goes missing.

She was kidnapped and her husband Marc who is an ice element is very lost and furious that he did not protect her. Marc, her father, who is the Head Witch and others covens come together and planned a search and rescue Alyssa mission. Meanwhile Alyssa, an unique and powerful witch not aware of all of her powers just yet was held captive by a cruel Dr. Jekyll and Hyde powerful dark witch, Nate, and he is cruel to her, punishing her, torturing her and keeps her disoriented, stealing her goodness, her light and turned her towards the darkness he craves. He is abusive and used black magic and poisoned herbs to erase her memory of all good in her life, her Marc, family and friends.

This intention was to manipulate her into using her gifts of healing and other talents for Nate and his henchmen to be healed when they are injured by their human hostages, who struggled against their captivity. Alyssa in her disoriented drugged state realizes Nate was a madman and he wants authority of all witches covens by destroying one coven at a time and targets for another and Alyssa was the key to unlock his future reign of dominance of the witch’s realm, declaring her as his alleged life-mate and brainwashed her to obey only his commandments.

 Her husband who is hot and sensual sensed her dilemma and felt all her emotional and physical pain she was enduring and desperately wants her back and safe in his embrace. They followed leads and when they challenged the dark witch and his henchmen in a battle of the elements they are defeated and retreated but come back for another match and this is when the intensity of the story becomes interesting and compelled this reader to stay up late to see justice given to the bad guys and Alyssa path back to recovery. The dark magic toxins were coursing through her veins and it might be too late for the high twelve witches of the world to reverse the spell. Marc and all who loved Alyssa waited in anticipation to welcome the old Alyssa or a stranger back to their lives.

The passion and the love they have for each other was sensual enough to make this reader to desired to have a glass of ice cold water next to her when reading the intimate connection between the two life mates. It was refreshing details of hints of their commitment to each other and all they cared about, which is more alluring then right out description. The conclusion was breath-taking and the glimpse into the witches’ rituals was exhilarating to feel the goodness and light pour out of the pages.

 Author's words: "Some secrets are not meant to be kept…and so it is with the dark Brotherhood of the Raven, in their reach for control they find a secret that leads them in pursuit of the daughter and heir to the most prominent coven in existence.” Once they possess her the real challenge is converting her to one of them."

Under His Command by Kristine Cayne 12/17/12

Under His Command by Kristine Cayne

Award-winning author Kristine Cayne is fascinated by the mysteries of human psychology—twisted secrets, deep-seated beliefs, out-of-control desires. Add in high-stakes scenarios and real-world villains, and you have a story worth writing, and reading.

Kristine’s heroes and heroines are pitted against each other by their radically opposing life experiences. By overcoming their differences and finding common ground, they triumph over their enemies and find true happiness in each other’s arms.

Today she lives in the Pacific Northwest, thriving on the mix of cultures, languages, religions and ideologies. When she’s not writing, she’s people-watching, imagining entire life stories, and inventing all sorts of danger for the unsuspecting heroes and heroines who cross her path.

To learn more about Kristine and her stories, visit her website:

 Kristine Cayne’s links:

A firefighter desperate to save his failing marriage earns the trust—and the sexual submission—of his controlling wife in the most pleasurable of ways.

After an explosive one-night stand results in pregnancy, Jamie Caldwell is thrilled to marry the perfect foil to his Dom side. But when his submissive wife starts cringing every time he gives a command, Jamie shackles his dark desires. A bout of rough, frenzied reunion sex makes him wonder if now he should free the Dom he’s kept in chains and teach Erica the joys of submission and sexual surrender.

Erica Caldwell secretly loved every sinful thing Jamie did to her on their first night together. However, terrified she’ll become a codependent doormat like her mother, she repeatedly rejects Jamie’s dominance, despite craving the kind of release only he can give her—the release that comes from yielding to Jamie’s every demand.
Hoping that the trust required by BDSM will help them rebuild their faith in each other, Jamie and Erica embark on a journey of sexual exploration. But is it too late to repair their crumbling marriage?

 Short Excerpt from Under His Command by Kristine Cayne

Something soft and cool slid over her eyes. “What’s this?” she asked, reaching for it.
“Shh… It’s just a blindfold. To heighten your senses.”
Like she needed her senses heightened? He’d already taken her places she’d never been. “I’m not sure about—”
His hand smacking her butt cheek completely derailed her train of thought. “Did you just slap me?”
“That was a spank. Now turn around.” He tied the scarf over her eyes, plunging her into darkness.
She really should resist, tell him to stop. Something. But she didn’t. “Okay. Why should I let you spank me?” she asked. So far this night had been like nothing she’d expected. Jamie was skilled and unpredictable. And she was genuinely curious.
“Because you love it.” His fingers trailed down the crease between her cheeks and dipped into her. Her body convulsed, pushing against his hand to take more of him. What was it about fingers that felt so darned good?
Another smack, this one a little harder, had her trembling. “See how wet you are? How good it feels?” he said.
He was so right.

What is Laughter (Messages from the Heart) by Lexie Brockway Potamkin

This book is such an depth insight understanding of the human emotions and how laughter is considered the best medicine in the world. As life progresses, some times one becomes burden with the responsibilities of daily living. Stress and sometimes tragedies hits us hard and we lose hope. So when a brilliant writer comes along and writes an inspirational book about the therapy of laughter and how to bring it back into one's life it is a book to be cherish.

For she discovered the secret to life, to laugh, and the world laughs with you. She wrote an deep, insightful but relaxing story, the truth of the psychological, medical and other benefits of laughter and how we need to remember to make ourselves laugh, even fake it until it becomes real. To give yourself a gift every day, to laugh at all the littlest to the largest thought and somehow life is not a pit of cherries or stagnant. Rather a thrill ride and we all need to hold on and see the humour in all of it at times.

To share with her readers, and as a delight to receive an gift in the mail, that is the true meaning of sharing joy. As a reader I feel bless to have the inspiring words available in hard-cover, to placed on the night stand and have available to read little insights here and there. There is a sweet bonus the author listened to her readers and added their comments in the story, to see your own words written and to share others words of wisdom, this reader has received an early Holiday gift which warms the heart.

The author collected the meaning of laughter from many individuals and created an inspirational guide. here is one of the many selected reader's words; "Foremost the lack of laughter is a reminder to me that my life has become out of balance and it's time to reflect and find my own center again. When I have done so my day is filled with laughter I am able to see humor in all quirks of life, pleasant,or otherwise." It acts as a medicinal elixir, minimizing the potentially frustrating moments." Very poignant and good advice. The artwork of the book is also very intrinsically beautiful. So with the insight and the artwork a reader will be pleased to have this book in their collection.

In the darkness this reader's motto is faith, hope and love, the author made me realized the missing ingredient of the elixir of life is laughter. For without laughter, there is no hope, no faith and no love. She also writes other inspirational books and is knowledgeable of human insight and a good author to preview. Especially with the holidays coming, all readers need inspirational books to have close on hand for those stormy days in one's life, ones that make the endorphins of the brain dance and bring smiles and laughter to all readers. This book definitely does this. Highly recommend this author and her books. Google her name and find out more about this amazing teacher, mentor and parent, as well as an uplifting author.
