“And to uncover the high-flying element of this outing the reader must make the journey alone with Anna as a guide. This lady can write! A series that touches on many aspects of the incredible nature comes together so well in this first installment that the series seems already a success.” – 5/5 Grady Harp
“The Mortal Falls is the first book in the series.I find that many books that are written with sequels in mind tend to spend too much time setting the stage and cementing character attributes in the beginning. Thankfully Durand knows how to avoid this annoying issue. From the first paragraph the reader feels and experiences the setting rather than having it painfully described. You meet and get to know the characters rather than having them spoon fed to you and told exactly how to feel about them.”
“I could go through all of the characters but that would get boring. Just suffice it to say that this character focused reader was not disappointed.” – 4/5 Amanda
“For me, the best way to describe The Mortal Falls would be fun. The story itself is supernatural with a strong romantic component, which is great for whisking you away to another reality. The author also does a great job with the characters, creating individuals that are consistent and actually behave like their characterization suggests they should. That aspect alone makes the story worth reading because it is sorely lacking in many other books. While the book isn’t revolutionary fiction by any means, it is an engaging read and a good choice for a rainy afternoon.” – 5/5 Cassandra
Stay Home, Get Whisked Away to Another World
If you can’t make it to a convention for romance lovers, you might feel left out — but you shouldn’t. Staying home can offer just as much romance, adventure, and fantasy as the best convention; plus, you can convene with your fellow romance fans online, via your favorite social network, to discuss the new worlds you’ve discovered. I love to curl up with a good fantasy or paranormal romance and let the author whisk me away into another world. How about you?
This is one of the main reasons I love writing those kinds of stories. Of course, even the most grounded contemporary romance can transport us to an alternate reality where an American girl who’s down on her luck can get steamy with a hot Scot, as in Dangerous in a Kilt. But my paranormal romances offer me the chance to create an entirely new version of reality, with a solid foundation in everyday reality. I relish the opportunity to take the normal old world and spice it up with magic, strange creatures, and of course, sizzling romance.
In my latest bestseller, The Mortal Falls, I built a world I’ve come to love and hope you will love too. If you crave escapism, this story is just the ticket to spirit you away from the mundane. So stay home, cuddle up in your PJs, and dive into the Unseen realm.
