Emma Banciu dreams about her novels taking on a life of their own. Thanks to a centuries old Gypsy curse, they tend to do just that. Writing with pen and paper she brings things to life, and hell hath no fury like an antagonist scorned. Now she’s on the run from Kyrin, an evil demon warlord who surfaced from one of her first manuscripts. And the only way to get rid of him is to destroy the manuscript.
Enter JG1988, her long-time online friend. He knows nothing of the curse nor the magick Emma possesses. His only wish is to finally meet her in person and take their relationship to the next level. He reveals a surprise of his own when he shows up at Emma’s door as international recording artist Jake Griffin.
After their first date is interrupted by Kyrin, Emma resorts to magick to save their lives. Destroying the manuscript will not only get rid of Kyrin, but also end her relationship with Jake. But keeping secrets from him may end up doing just that. In order to survive they’ll resort to love, lies, and a little Gypsy magick.
Fantastic! I ended up reading my first book by Wren Micheals due to a fluke, and I am SO glad I did! She’s a fantastic writer with a unique vision, and a talent for her craft. Elluding Illusions is no exception! It’s well written, well researched, and hands down, one of the best paranormal romances I’ve read in 2015! Fan-freaking-tastic!
Emma is our heroine in this novel, and she’s a gypsy who’s family is cursed. That’s unique right? Well, it gets better, due to the curse, each of the families talents were given powers. Her father’s spoken stories came to life, her mother’s songs could influence people, and Emma? Well, if she writes it, it becomes real. I generally would say, “How cool is that?!?”, but you gotta take the good with the bad, and that’s what this story is all about.
Emma crafted some nasty evil that won’t leave her alone, and despite basically creating her boyfriend, a famous musician, and dealing with her ex, a handsom shifter, she’s in deep. It’s a story fraught with twists and turns, and so much emotional struggles you won’t put it down. It’s one of those books you want to clear your schedule for because you will need to find out how it all ends. Wren does an amazing job creating these dynamic, three dimensional characters who grab our minds and hearts, and keep up hanging on for dear life til the end.
This novel was a fantastic example of exceptionally written paranormal romance. It had the heat, the love, the action, and a leading man and woman you will root for until the end! Can’t wait to see what Wren has up her sleeve next! Highly recommend her writing!
