Kudos to Lorraine Carey and ON BORROWED TIME

The following review was written by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite. Congratulations to Lorraine Carey!
Lorraine Carey, On Borrowed Time, paranormal, thriller, magic
On Borrowed Time: Women of the Willow Wood, Book 2 is a paranormal romance novel written by Lorraine Carey. While this is the second volume in Carey’s series, she gives enough background information to enable this book to be read as a stand-alone. Daniella Reyes would miss Nina Santos, who had been her host for the last month, and she’d miss the two dogs who had become her close friends and companions. So much had happened since she had arrived at Nina’s ranch, but Daniella was eager to play her part as a new initiate in the Women of Willow Wood, a society which had its roots back in history to the 14th century and even before that to 1400 BC. She was still getting used to her new name, Rachel Torres, and would now be a guardian in the order with the responsibility for rescuing souls. The order had found a teaching position for her in a small Texas town, where a young teacher was being manipulated by her cult-leader boyfriend. Rachel’s first assignment was to rescue Audrina Campbell.

Lorraine Carey’s paranormal romance novel, On Borrowed Time: Women of the Willow Wood, Book 2, is a thought-provoking and compelling novel that incorporates mythological themes in a modern day story about a sisterhood sworn to help others. Daniella Reyes is refreshingly real and bluntly skeptical of the one-year chastity request the Women of the Willow Wood lays upon her, and I wondered just how long she’d be able to comply, especially after she meets the dishy Brandt Meade whose cover as a parent just doesn’t sit quite well with her. While there are a few spicy words thrown in here and there, On Borrowed Time is a sweet romantic suspense novel that reads beautifully and is quite enjoyable.
On Borrowed Time: Women of the Willow Wood, Book 2 is most highly recommended.

About Yellow River Pledge:

Imagine being Dr. Jordan Chamberlain, a successful, beautiful, young medical examiner with the perfect husband, the perfect life, and the perfect friends. To an outside observer, she has it all, until her husband announces, without warning, that he doesn’t want to be married anymore. Jordan’s perfect life crashes and burns all around her. She buries herself deep into her work and temporarily embarks on a career consulting with the FBI’s Violent Crimes Division under the careful eye of college friends turned colleagues, who support her during her time of crisis.

Jordan connects with Detective Sean Logan, an acquaintance from work, and the romance that ensues is the most complete, fulfilling relationship she’s ever known until it’s threatened by ties she still has to her ex-husband.  As she struggles to find closure for an old life she no longer has and define a new life with Sean, her future is once again jeopardized when Jordan becomes the next target of the serial killer she’s been pursuing through her work with the FBI.
