YA, Paranormal Romance

We, or I mean writers, all started as readers . . .

My first draw to reading was that I was fascinated by the Paranormal Romance. I’m sure my love for all things that are romance came from my ‘cookie-cutter’ image of my Prince Charming like in Sleeping Beauty.

However, the Paranormal came out of the feeling that there is something mystic out there in the universe.  I was born and raised Roman Catholic and went to Catholic school from K-12, so if you know anything about Catholicism, you know that transformation and God’s hand changes elements of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.

So, from early on, I know there were other forces out there of Good and Evil.  When I became a fully human being meaning as I grew up.  I learned about Eastern Philosophy and Good Karma and Bad Karma.  What I give out to the world, is given back to me.  If I sow Bad Karma. . . I am sure to get it back 10 fold.

4 Seditious Book CoverWhy did I write, Seditious, the fourth novel in “The Light-Bearer Series”?  Because believe it or not, I wanted Charmeine and Tabbruis, my star-crossed lovers, to come against what we normal folks deal with from time to time.

I wanted my hero and heroine to have troubles with trust, money, disloyalty, separation, redemption and most of all, forgiving someone you love who has hurt you without conditions or ultimatums.  It seemed that I needed to portray my super-human lovers as a regular husband and wife.

I finished three Young Adult  books, Charmeine, Mactus and Accendo before this and I thought I could make “The Light-Bearer Series” last forever if I wished.  There seemed to be endless manuscripts for my head to conjure up.

I had to reassess my work and how I was going to progress forward. I write Paranormal Romance, because I love to read it.  So, with that notion in hand, I am forging more of “The Light-Bearer Series” because it seems to come naturally to me.

The Characters have become a family to me.  From what I hear from people who read past the first novel is that they are family to them also.  Don’t take it from me, just see the reviews.

Now that my passion or past-time is making my readers happy, there are plenty more on the horizon.

Anything to do with love, particularly forbidden love, I will almost go backward trying to make it work as a writer. I can pick and choose my villains and make them twist and turn.

Believe it or not, I write from Tabbruis’ point of view a lot.  I love getting into his complicated, dark and broody Blood-Hunter mind.  The doubting hero’s viewpoint is much more interesting.

In addition, I hate making women in my novels weak. . . Damsel in Distress has been done.  It is time to see some Take Charge and Kick ‘em in the Ass Heroines and that is why Charmeine is sweet, kind and loving, but vicious and brutal when you mess with her family!


Here is another 5 star review of Seditious…

“Seditious” is the perfect title for this novel! Ms. Guido captured jealously, deceit, and restoration of love flawlessly. This novel shows a side to Tabbruis and Charmeine’s relationship which will throw any reader of “The Light-Bearer Series” off kilter. “Seditious” is the continuation of their romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!

Life at the ‘Castle Charmeine’ is blissful until reality of the ruling the Elder Council of the Blood-Hunters causes decent.  This fourth novel also adds unexpected depth to both Tabbruis and Dmitri’s personalities, humanizing both men.

Lord Cromwell is a lethal Blood-Hunter who has escaped the Elder Council Prison. He sends his beautiful agent to cause destruction to those who live at the Castle Charmeine.

6704372_l (1)Bathsheba is a deadly, sexy, and vicious siren who threatens Charmeine and Baby Hunter. Not just with her present actions, but, with the past she shares with Tabbruis and Dmitri.

As Bathsheba lays injured, Tabbruis and Dmitri relive their agonizing and painful past with her. However, Charmeine is emotionally and physically threatened by Bathsheba and escapes to protect her unborn child.

This is the story of a family which works together to unravel Bathsheba’s deadly secrets. Just when you think they are in the clear, a more heinous and ominous villain waits in the wings to tear apart our ill-fated lovers, Charmeine and Tabbruis.

“Seditious” is a heart-wrenching and exciting story of passion, betrayal, and redemption you will not want to miss!
