Find out what the critics are saying about Sky Purington's books! *Contest*

What's being said about DARKEST MEMORY
(prequel to HEART OF VESUVIUS)

"Sky Purington gives us a jam-packed vampire tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat! This is one vampire love story that will tug on your heartstrings! It also has enough heat to singe your fingertips as you fly through the pages of this blazing book!"
~Night Owl Reviews

"This is a fun story full of mystery. I spent a lot of time during the first few chapters trying to puzzle out what was happening and what secret Gabriel was hiding. And I was not disappointed. The characters were vivid and believable and reacted to the world around them in appropriate ways...The sex is hot, frantic, and wild, saving admissions of feeling for better times."
~You Gotta Read Reviews

"If you want a story with a good bit of mystery, suspense, heat, and characters you won't forget, then you need to read DARKEST MEMORY."
~Long and Short Reviews

What’s being said about THE MAC’LOMAIN TRILOGY

Short story lead-in to trilogy…“This story is suggestive, and haunting. It is carried by the power of desire, the power of passion, and the power of desperation. There is a richness here that is hard to convey… THE KING’S DRUIDESS will delight not only the faerie fans but those who love all the tales of old.”
~Nancy A. Lindley-Gauthier

“A lover of all things Scottish along with an avid love of anything that is fantasy, Fate’s Monolith just hits my buttons. It's a lovely blend of two times and the trouble that would befall anyone that is taken across the fabric of time. Sky Purington has done a wonderful job bringing this story to life. I found it hard to put down and it made me wish for my own Highland Laird to come and sweep me off my feet and into a time where I could be loved for who I am. I hope you take the time to get lost in FATE’S MONOLITH this summer just as I did.”
~Night Owl Reviews

“There is so much packed into DESTINY’S DENIAL the story is gripping. I couldn't put it down until I finished the last page but don't take my word for it, you really need to read these books. If you have the slightest interest in time travel, Scotland or magic you will be pulled into this story hook, line and sinker.”
~Simply Romance Reviews


“SYLVAN MIST… “This final story in Purington's Mac'Lomain trilogy is an enchanting story of time hopping. Closely connected to the previous stories, the action is intense and the finish is a fine conclusion to the series.”
~Romantic Times Reviews

Congratulations on your contract Sky!! I can't wait to see how well I do! ha ha, and THANKS so much for thinking enough of me to make a character based on my own personality in your books! It means more than you know!

I'm so excited that I'm not even mad that your woke me up to tell me at 3:30am this morning! lol, *wink*

Seriously, I am sooooooooooo happy for you and I hope that this series does as well, well actually better, :O) than all your others!!! Hope that didn't come across wrong!

And since I spent the night dreaming that I was finding money, yes the green stuff all over the place, maybe it means you will be seeing lots of sales!!!!!

Congratulations my friend, you DESERVE it!!!!!!

Hugs~
Andrea :O)

Skhye said...

How cool! LOL, Andrea. The money? WEIRD. Didn't you say somewhere on a blog that you were psychic? !!! So the money rain is a great sign for Sky!

You didn't tell us about your new series, Sky. Victorian? Who's the hero & heroine? Is someone from the Old World? Please no sinking ships! I'm so not into DeCaprio...

Congrats, Sky!

Nicole North said...

Congratulations on the awesome reviews, Sky!! Your stories sound fascinating!

Pat said...

Great reviews.
In the the new series is going to queens and other rolity?

Rynne Raines said...

Congratulations on the contract! That's fantastic news. I just popped by to say that I spent yesterday afternoon reading Heart Of Vesuvius and I absolutely loved it. Well done, Sky. Looking forward to your next trilogy.

Sky Purington said...

Andrea...OMG, so sorry I woke you up sweetie!!! Lately, my cell is silent when I receive texts so I tend to forget others are not!!! Yikes...could you tell I was excited? LOL

Sky Purington said...

Skhye, this trilogy is based on Calum's Curse. He was indeed a character from my Highlander trilogy but still in the belly in Fate's Monolith, overseas in France in Sylvan Mist. Anyways, he dabbled in the dark arts and long story short ended up cursed.

While Calum appears throughout the trilogy, as a ghost in some parts, a mortal man in others- he is classified as a secondary character.

The main characters are a paranormal investigative team. One Scotsman, one Irishman and one American. All decendents of Calum's...and as they soon find out, Warlocks.

The Victorian Lure follows Leathan (Scotsman) and Dakota as they struggle to make sense of a particularly haunted house. In fact, over a few days this house rolls back 100 years in time!

I'm actually halfway through the second novel (Working title)The Georgian Embrace. In this one we're dealing with multi-dimensions!

Hugs!

Sky Purington said...

Thanks so much, Nicole!!! :)

Sky Purington said...

Hi Pat! No royalty is this next series just haunted houses and sexy paranormal investigators. I would like to write a regency one of these days though!

Sky Purington said...

Oh, SO glad you enjoyed Heart of Vesuvius Rynne!!! You positively made my day, girl!

Sky Purington said...

Andrea, are you psychic? That would be so cool!!! Especially in that you were dreaming about money last night!!!

I tend to dream about things before they happen. Half the reason I was inspired to have my Highlander Trilogy revolves around dreams!

Brandy B aka Brandlwyne said...

@Andrea Congrats on being a ghost hunter in Sky's book, you are sooo lucky!!!

Sky Wheeeay! I'm so excited about the Victorian Lure, can't wait! And I'm sure the next in the series will be just as good - you're doing great my friend!

Congratulations and wishing you many, many sales.

Sky Purington said...

Sorry, I'm a day late with these responses!

Thanks Brandy! I think I detect a little ghost hunter in you as well! Still just hitting the editing phase for The Victorian Lure but will be sure to share when I get a release date. :)

Sky Purington said...

Lyn my friend, so good to 'see' you!!! Yeah, I'm totally thrilled about this contract and thank you so much for the kind words. Devin (whom I believe is your favorite hero in this trilogy) is having a heck of a time so far in The Georgian Embrace! (((Hugs)))

Sky Purington said...

TY Danielle! Hope you enjoy! :)

Carol L. said...

Congrats on your new contract Sky. A new trilogy, I can't wait. Congrats also on those fantastic reviews. But then again you deserve them. I so love your Highlanders. :) I couldn't put Sylvan Mist when I got it and was cooking with one hand because I had your book in the other. lol
Wishing you many, many sales Sky.
