This Fun New Book Wraps Both into One

ROCHESTER, NY, November 30, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Looking for something deliciously dark yet lovingly light at the holidays? You don’t have to reach for Aunt Ethel’s chocolates. There’s something more magic afoot, with a twist on a werewolf theme — The Curse of the Lord of Darkness, a new, historical gothic-paranormal romance novel by author Sherile Reilly.

The Curse of the Lord of Darkness ($14.99, paperback, ISBN: 978-177511771, Saborn Press, November 6, 2018) is a fast, fun read, yet Sherile Reilly’s writing lingers in the din long enough for the chills down the spine to set in. It’s midnight in Connecticut in 1895. Alexander Winslow waits in terror for the nightly affliction to flare up in his soul, ravaging his body with spasms and tears as an ancient family curse takes rips apart his body once again. Transmuted to animal form, he will prowl the countryside, hungry and deranged in search of prey. It is to this forlorn place that Vicki Northcote flees the savage uncle who wants her dead, only to discover that her friend and master of the house has passed away, leaving reign of the estate to one Alexander Winslow. Despite their dire circumstances, the two are mysteriously drawn to one another, and together they will seek a way to break the curse… before they lose their lives.

The Curse of the Lord of Darkness is a genre departure from Sherile Reilly’s previous three romance novels, the Bringing Jamie Home trilogy, which the author calls “clean contemporary romance.” Sherile Reilly has also written two children’s books, Greg and the Barbarian, and Spunky: Tapping Into Trouble. She is currently enjoying working in the darker themes, however; another historical-paranormal romance novel, The Spirit Keeper’s Seduction, is coming soon.

Sherile Reilly is an author, artist, and retired teacher who has traveled the world collecting stories. “I’ve always loved reading romance stories where the heroine flees to an isolated location and she has to rely on herself to get out of danger—and help the handsome hero who is tortured by an ancient curse,” Reilly says. “I write for the reader’s entertainment, no matter the age. I just love to create exciting, plot-driven stories.”

The Curse of the Lord of Darkness, ($14.99, paperback, ISBN: 978-177511771, Saborn Press, November 6, 2018, 249 pages, 5.2 x .6 x 8″) is available at neighborhood and online booksellers. For more information on the books and the author, visit
