Jinni's Wish: Book 4

A long, long time ago there lived a man. A Jinni, who had one wish. To know love. But the woman he thought he knew betrayed him and the love he thought they shared. Tortured for his crimes, he was cast out of Kingdom, stripped of all his powers, left to langour in pain and solitude, until eventually he becomes nothing but a ghost...

Paz Lopez is an artist with a dream. To buy a ridiculously large penthouse in the swankiest section of Chicago. But there's just one hitch, she has no man to share her dream with. A fateful visit to a carnival and Madam Pandora's tent sends Paz on a mission to find the love of her life before it's too late.

But the Madam forgot to tell Paz one very important detail... to meet him, Paz will have to die first.

Hook's Pan: Book 5

Trishelle Page has known pain in her life, but instead of it making her weak, she's stronger. Confident. That is until the day a fairy kidnaps her during her starring role in Peter Pan's play and tells her not only do fairy tales exist, but that she's the soulmate of the pirate they call Hook, making her question everything she ever thought she knew.

Captain James Hook is a man at the end of his rope. He's not the villainous bastard tales have made him out to be. So when the feisty blonde drops literally at his feet, he aims to prove it to her. If only to get her into his bed.

What neither one knows is that fate and magic are conspiring and they can deny the attraction all they want but their happily ever after is already written, it's just a matter of getting there.

My Thoughts About the Book:
How do you bring a Jinni with no corporeal form to a human girl to fall in love? Great question right? And yet Hall manages it quite nicely making Paz and Jinni's love story soar through the cosmos and bring a wonderful story to life.

Jinni is disillusioned by the life he's led and is fading away from life. Paz is an aspiring artist with dreams of love and happiness. Danika, Jinni's fairy godmother, can only point the proud Jinni in the direction of true love and hope that two souls realized they are meant for happily ever after.

Why does Hook hate Pan so much? Maybe the stories have it all wrong and Hook isn't quite as bad as he seems. Hall gives us a Hook who isn't afraid to be a pirate but has a code of honor that normally prevents him from harming women and children with the exclusion of Peter Pan, the brat who destroyed his world.

Trishelle is Betty's (from Gerard's Beauty) best friend and when her turn for Kingdom comes up she is less than enthusiastic and yet once she's there she can't deny her attraction to the gruff pirate.

Trishelle has had a lot of heartache in her life and the very idea of love seems more like a death sentence than happiness but the more time she spends with Captain Hook the less she fears true love.

Both great stories with a wonderful sneak peak of two more stories.
