The Chatelaine Awards for Romantic Fiction Writing Contests Finalists listing for 2016! Congratulations to those whose works made the short-list!
"Mistress by Magick" captivated me from the beginning with its intriguing story line, along with Navarre’s lush writing style that makes every scene come vividly alive. She deftly interweaves the suspense of the impending Spanish invasion, the intrigue of two royal courts, the fantasy elements of fallen angels and the Fae, and deliciously pure seduction in this riveting tale of rivaling powers, deceit, and passion. Navarre's s romance novels are a secret pleasure for those—do I dare say—who consider themselves not the typical romance novel readers.
Laura Navarre is a wonderful story teller who takes romance novels to a new level. Those who enjoy sensuous heat with a measure of Phillippa Gregory's Tudor series intrigue, but who also take pleasure in the fantasy elements of magic and Arthurian legends a la Marion Zimmer Bradley will find the Magick Trilogy an enjoyable and engrossing read. These are not Y/A novels.
Deadly Addiction captures the devastating effects of poverty and substance abuse on a First Nations community while portraying the love affair of one tribal member determined to help his people. As brutally violent as it is flirtatious, this novel offers readers a realistic glimpse of contemporary life on a First Nations reserve. The story is populated by wonderfully realized characters.
