Press Release: October 24, 2017
STRUTHERS, -- International award-winning author, Lorraine Carey, has released the second in her ‘Women of the Willow Wood’ book series, titled, “On Borrowed Time - Book 2”.
The series, published by EMSA Publishing, is based on legends of an underground secret society of women who use ancient magic.
Daniella Reyes is back. Remember, she’s a bad ass warrior ready to take back what was already hers. Once a wounded soul, she’s now a fearless warrior rising up in the ranks of the Willow Wood Sisterhood to guardian status. A new and dangerous mission will take her undercover to expose a most secretive and evil cult.
In the mission, she’s got to rescue one soul before she and her new charge become victims to a satanic ritual. The stakes are raised as she battles some extremely forceful male witches. Some very powerful deities have her back as she enters into a forbidden zone where few Sisters have feared to tread.
“Nina whispered in my ear. “It only happens when a Guardian receives a transformation during a ritual. Besides Daniella, your body is perfect the way it is. I guess you never wondered why men seemed to be bewitched by your beauty. You have been blessed with good looks you have inherited from the goddesses. With your striking black hair and emerald eyes, you can captivate most souls. And this has been one of your finest assets.”
At this point, I didn’t feel quite captivating. I felt the presence of heat emanating from my lower back. I reached back there to feel a rough patch of skin. I ran my hand over what felt like a mark that was indented into my skin. What the hell is this?
“It is your mark of the goddess, Daniella. Did you not have a vision of the lightening striking your lower back?”
My mind was fuzzy, but I did recall dreaming of lightening. It was just one of the few dreams I had while I had dozed off.
I looked at Nina with concern. “So what exactly is this mark?”
“It is the ‘V’ insignia which originates from the Roman Goddess Vesta. It was bestowed to you during the transformation. Very few receive this privilege. Few I have witnessed that go through transformation have been gifted this mark.”
Heightening the plot, a mysterious man will enter her life at a time when she has taken a vow of chastity to enable her powers to peak. But there lies a strong and mysterious attraction between the two. Will this mystery man be able to break this new Guardian down?
With time running out, Daniella has got to complete her final mission in order to return home to New Mexico and be with her family.
“I saw my father. He was smiling and walking in a field full of wildflowers. I was a child. He took my hand and led me toward a mountain. Was this a dream? What did it mean?” I was tearing up.
“It was a vision. Yes, it was your father sending you a message from the other side. He is thanking you for his soul rescue. And the reason you were a child is a sign of rebirth. For all those years that were stolen from you, you will be gifted with a second chance for happiness. But it shall not come without price. Get dressed. We need to get outside to the stream before the sun rises. I don’t have the energy to put up new wards at this time.”
This supernatural thriller is ramped up with steamy love scenes, ancient magic from the goddesses and non-stop action sure to make you want to read on.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Lorraine Carey is a veteran children's reading specialist, teacher and an international award-winning author. She has taught in many states in the US and provided reading services for students at a private school on Grand Cayman, where she lives with her husband, Jeff.
Eight years ago she was a city gal living in Orange County, CA, where life was very different from the one she lives now. Trading in her fashionable heels for flip-flops was quite a change, but led to a lifestyle that allowed for a writing career to begin.
Her love for paranormal stories and urban legends began at a young age when staying up all night to watch spooky movies or reading a scary book and started a lifelong passion.
Lorraine is no stranger to the paranormal, as she has encountered many unexplainable mysterious events during her life. Some of those events have been carefully woven into her literary fiction tales.
Published novels include: “Losing Ground”, a short memoir, followed by “Mysteries of the Red Coyote Inn”, “Out of the Ashes”, “Jonathan's Locket”, “The Last Vestal Virgin” and “Beloved Sacrifice”. These novels are paranormal with a mix of historical fiction, woven with urban legends and suitable for young adults to adults. “A Rock Star Reader by Kindergarten” is a self-help guide for parents on creating a successful reader and lifelong lover of literacy. “The Good Teacher” and “On Borrowed Time” are her latest works in the “Women of the Willow Wood” series. Other works include “Camp Cougar”, which is the author’s first attempt in the erotica field. She has teamed up with a co-author to create this hybrid, humorous erotica. A sequel to “Camp Cougar” is set to be released fall of 2017.
When not writing, you can find Lorraine reading, beach hopping, snorkeling, or boating around the island with her husband on their boat, the ‘Angelica’.
