New review for The Witch and the Wolf from The Long and Short of It!

I personally really enjoy historical fiction and this story pleased me. It takes place during the French Revolution and thereafter. The writing is such that I felt transported right into events and felt the fear and passion that was prevalent then. Transportation by horse and carriage, elegant clothes worn by elegant ladies, fawning gentlemen, the constant intrigues that were carried on behind the royal scene can all be enjoyed by the reader. The language and speech patterns here and there tends to resemble modern day language but on the whole language is authentic as well. I enjoyed the reminder of what had been taking place in the courts of England and France as they struggled with their hatred of each other.

The romance that Arabella De Maurier and Christopher Wyndham tried so hard to deny accelerates through the story building to a delicious crescendo at the end as true love prevails. Christopher refuses to give up on his love as Arabella twists and turns looking for a way to solve her problems. As hard as he tries Wyndham cannot stop loving her. It makes you wish for a man just like him for yourself.

I eagerly followed the ups and downs of the love the two main characters have for each other. Their relationship is stormy, but so touching in places it's sure to bring a smile to your face as it did mine. You'll want to pay close attention while you read so you don’t miss any of the juicy parts. It makes for a very fascinating time. There are many other threads of people’s lives and events woven throughout the main love story that also make it interesting to follow. All that passion and action and history woven together makes this a book you really should read!

     I have received a lovely review from a reader, who loved The Long Thin Veil. The review was posted at The Wild Rose Press.

    Here it is, with permission to post from the reviewer, Catherine,
    5 Stars
    Admittedly, I do not read many stories of Faeries and veiled worlds where Leperchans and Nymphs come to life. This well crafted tale not only kept my interest but has me looking for more in a genre I've ignored. I look forward to more of Ms. Mathews stories.

    New Cover for The Long Thin Veil!

    Oh, yeah! Here's the new cover for my October 2006 release with The Wild Rose Press, The Long Thin Veil. :) I think it's a definite improvement from the previous one though that one was nice as well. Now, I have to get it updated on all of my sites! I'll include the blurb and buy link with it as well!


    It is the night of All Hallow's Eve, in Scotland. Come nightfall, The Long Thin Veil between realms will slip away, unleashing the full magical power of Samhain. The spirits of the dead, faeries, elves and other otherworldly spirits will visit the human realm, and in return the humans may visit their realms. However, All Hallow's Eve comes with a price. While the spirits of the light are given access to our world, the spirits of darkness can also cross into our realm. Megan Rose MacLeod is a witch. She is the protector of her village in her family of witches, she is known as the 'chosen one'. Her time of reckoning is near, for she has made a bargain with a powerful man, Tiernan Fairlove, a man accustomed to getting what he wants. And, he wants Megan. Now, he must convince her that they are a match made in heaven, destined to be together for eternity. Blessings and danger abounds on All Hallow's Eve, in the end, their love might be the only thing that survives to see a new day.

    Review for Doorway to the Stars from Kasey's View!

    Here's what Kasey at Kasey's View had to say about Doorway to the Stars, I'll include the link to the full review at the bottom of this post.

    I found Doorway To The Stars to be a fascinating and thought provoking story that will linger in your mind long after the story is finished. In fact I think that this story could probably use a sequel! The characters are extremely likable, the world building is very interesting, and the chemistry between the two main characters, Aries and Freya is scorching hot... 4 Stars!

    Reviews for Twilight's Kiss and The Promise!!!

    Hey All, 
    I have two new reviews for two different stories! The first review is for Twilight's Kiss my full length paranormal fantasy published with The Wild Rose Press. The second review is for The Promise my short paranormal Christmas Romance published with The Wild Rose Press! Kathy from Kathy's Review Corner read and reviewed both stories! 
    Below is a snippet of the review for Twilight's Kiss! Thank you so much, Kathy! 

    Twilight's Kiss was a paranormal story with so many elements - vampires, a curse, fairies and even elves. There is a large cast of characters that were fully developed, and that I worried about as the battle loomed. I adored the interaction between Sean and his several times removed niece Grace. She definitely kept him on his toes, and he adored her. The slow build up of the romance between Bridget and Sean was believable, especially considering Bridget thought all vampires should be destroyed, and Sean was uncertain whether Bridget was the answer to the prophecy. There were times that it felt as if the story jumped, and the ending does leave a couple unresolved storylines. Overall, I adored Twilight's Kiss and eagerly await what I hope will be a sequel or two.

    Below is a snippet of the review for The Promise!

    The Promise was a sweet romance of two people fighting the inexplicable forces that was drawing them together. Neither trusts the other, and both were resolved in finding out the truth of what was happening. As I'm learning to expect and enjoy from Ms Mathews, there was an extensive set of secondary characters that fully participated in the story. There were a couple decisions and assumptions made in the story that were abrupt, but overall, I can see definite promise for a successful future for this author.
