Like To Read? Read For A Cure - When A Mullo Loves A Woman by Joanne Kenrick

I'm a T-shirt and blue jeans kind of gal most of the time.  Among the tees I wear every day are shirts from Ireland, T-shirts that support my son's school, a well-worn favorite that features an image of the genie from the retro television show I Dream Of Jeannie.  I have shirts from places I've been and shirts with logos that I like but the T-shirt that I value most is my Relay For Life T-Shirt.



For anyone who doesn't know, Relay For Life is an annual event in which money is raised for the fight against cancer.  If you're like me, you've lost your near and dear to this terrible disease.  My father-in-law, my beloved Aunt Janet,my Aunt Susie, my cousin Mary, my friend Donna Ruark, my friend and pastor Roger Leveilee, are just a few of the names I can list who lost their battle with cancer.  I walk for them during the annual Relay For Life in our town and for others.

There are many ways to help in the fight against cancer but a very easy one is to read.   I just learned of this from a fellow author, Joanne Kenrick.  Her book, When A Mullo Loves A Woman, is the April Read For A Cure selection from Decadent Publishing.

If you're wondering just what a mullo is - keep reading and you will know!!


Decadent Publishing, an ebook to print publisher, donates publisher profits from a different book each month, to Relay For Life.

Through the month of April 2011, When A Mullo Loves A Woman, a paranormal romance by debut Charlotte author JoAnne Kenrick, joins their 'Read for a Cure' efforts.
When A Mullo Loves A Woman is available to buy from all major ebook retailers, the print edition is coming soon. Featuring soul sucking mullo (mullo: ancient gypsy legend of the undead), this book is dubbed unique with enough twists and turns to make your toes curl.

Blurb:

Adam Flint's Gypsy visions always guide him to those who need his paranormal gifts. He gets more than he bargained for in Pearl Kizzy, a beautiful spitfire from Liverpool. Adam knows that to save Pearl, he must help her accept her own Gypsy heritage. Although Adam and Pearl fight their burning attraction for one another, a night of passion sparks memories of their treacherous former lives. Unable to face the loss of Pearl in this century, Adam scrambles for distance from the love of his life. A rejected Pearl falls into the arms of a Mullo -- a gypsy legend of the undead--who lays claim to her heart, and her life. To survive, Adam and Pearl must accept their tragic part, and find a way to kill the undead.

Okay, I am buying this book - not just because it supports and helps a cause that I support with my whole heart but because I'm intrigued.  This sounds like an awesome, amazing read, just the kind of book that I love to get so engrossed in that I forgot the real world for a space of time.

Get a taste of it here:

Excerpt:

“Pearl, come out of the rain. You’ll catch your death.”
A strike of lightening blazed up the sky, a brilliant yellow. Was Mother Nature expressing the fury I felt inside? Was I somehow connected to the storm? It felt that way, and I wanted the sounds of the storm to fill me to the brim, leaving no room for confusion. I looked up at the moon and held out my arms. Take me, storm, take me.
Adam grabbed my hand and dragged me under the deck’s roof.
I can’t let the ocean call you to its depths. I won’t let it happen.
I heard what was in Adam’s head. No, I felt it. A panic had taken hold of him. It was gut-wrenching; his heart pounded hard and fast as though he’d lost someone to the sea, a loved one.
“What the hell?” I maneuvered to face him—his arms were still wrapped tight around me. I wiped the sodden hair away from my face and stared up at him. The sense of familiarity flooded me again, and I yearned to bask in the comfort that comes with such closeness. A desire to place my head on his chest and to wrap my arms around him filled me, but I resisted for fear of being pushed away.

“Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them' before?”
“Yes,” he said. Adam gazed into my eyes, his expression soft and concerning.
“What do you think it means?”
“Dunno."
I loved the vibration of his thoughts. They traveled through me as though they belonged to me. It made me feel close to him. Being with him was like being with an old friend. Frosty-ass comments and all, I wanted to take comfort in him and could resist no more. I wrapped my arms around him and buried my head into his chest. It felt like home. He felt like home.

“Maybe we knew each other in a past life?” I asked, closing my eyes and leaning into the safety of him.


Author Information:

JoAnne Kenrick grew up in a small sea-side town in North Wales. Having experienced life in several different countries, she now lives in North Carolina with her husband, two children and a lazy cat. When they aren’t demanding her attention, she can most likely be found watching a vampire movie, reading, or baking up a British feast in her N.C. kitchen. And if she isn't in one of those spots, she is probably hiding in her writer's cave or recording her next vlog.
