Celebrating Marie Treanor's New Release, GUITAR MAN

Today we're celebrating the release of the second book in Marie Treanor's Psychic Seductions series, GUITAR MAN.

Marie Treanor was born and bred in Scotland, but for some years moved around the UK working and studying. Now she's back home and happily married with three young children.

Having grown bored with city life, her family lives in a picturesque village by the sea where, instead of working for a living, Marie is lucky enough to be able to enjoy herself writing stories of romance and fantasy.

She draws the inspiration for her books mainly from the people around her and from Scotland's rich history and culture - with, of course, large helpings of fun and imagination!


Book two in Marie Treanor's Psychic Seductions series.

Ellie's a powerful psychic who can't seem to hold onto her man. When she's dumped at the altar - again - she swears off men and takes her wounded heart to Scotland, where she promptly runs into the best-ever one-night stand from her past, sexy, adventurous busker Chris.

Chris is as hot - and as good in bed - as he was when they first met. But something's different now, something that changes him into a terrifying threat all her psychic abilities can't overcome. Now it's up to Ellie - free Chris from the evil possessing him, and claim him as her own.


WIN - Leave Marie a question or comment today at her Cyber Launch Party and your name goes in the hat for a free download of the first book in her Psychic Seductions Series - HUNTING KAROLY! A winner will be announced tomorrow - Have Fun and Good Luck!!


  1. Super congrats on the new release Marie!!! The excerpt was fantastic!!

    Tell us a little bit about this series, how do the books connect and should they be read in order?

    Any more books planned for this series?

    And tell us a little bit about your big vampire series that starts this fall! I for one can't wait!

    Raising my cyber champagne flute, here's to the new book being a EC bestseller!!!

  2. Thanks, DeNita! Glad you enjoyed the excerpt!

    Well, the series is connected by the mysterious Psychic Centre, which had recruited Jenny in "Hunting Karoly." Ellie, who was a minor character in that book, is the heroine of "Guitar Man", and also works for the Psychic Centre. Though the books do have a bit of a dark side, featuring vampires and evil possession, they are largely lighthearted and fun - at least they were for me :)

    There is a third book in the series "Freeing Al", which should be out later in the year. "Freeing Al" is about a slightly kinky Romanian vampiress and a Scottish ex-con whom everyone in the country wants to kill!

    The books can be read alone, but I suppose they might be enjoyed more if read in order, since many characters make reappearances :)

    Yes, my new vampire series at NAL is very exciting! This is a trilogy of longer novels called "Awakened by Blood", about an academic who accidentally awakens the most powerful vampire who ever lived. HE was staked centuries before and now he wants revenge. I'm very excited about this series too! The first book, "Blood on Silk" comes out in the US and Canada in September.

    Cyber-cheers back to you, DeNita!


  3. Woot! Hooray, Marie!! Congrats on release day for book 2! How exciting that book three's in the works already! Do you have more in mind, or is it open for later additions?

    And congrats on the NAL series! That sounds like a really exciting story, too! Are all three following the story arc of this vamp, or do you focus on different characters in each book?

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for celebrating with us!


  4. Congratulations on the new release. This seems to be a sexy story with a mix of action. Can't go wrong that.

  5. Congratulations on the new release. I'll check out the series next time I go shooping at Elloras Cave.

  6. This sounds like an exciting book; I look foreward in reading it.

  7. Fedora,thank you!

    I have no more "Psychic Seductions" planned at present, but there's no reason why there shouldn't be if the stories come to mind :).

    The "Awakened by Blood" books all follow the story of the vampire Saloman and his "awakener", Elizabeth. It's a turbulent relationship :). Thanks for asking!

    And it's always a pleasure to celebrate here with you :)


  8. Leni, Andrea and Tracey,thanks for dropping in and celebrating with me :) Great to see you here and thanks for the kind comments!


  9. Congrats!

  11. Hi Marie,

    I haven't read you before but just checked out your website, wow, you have some great books under your belt and in so many different genres. What's your favorite to write?

    I've added you to my "must try" list of authors.

    Best of luck with the NAL series and with this release, as well.

    Lauri Jo

  12. Estella, thank you! Good to talk to you again - thanks for dropping in!

    Hi Linda, glad you're intrigued :) It's been a fun series to write, and there are so many aspects of psychic and supernatural happenings that it's a feast for the imagination :)

    Thank you, Lauri Jo! To be honest, I'm not quite sure what my favourite genre is - usually the one I'm writing in at the time :) As you noticed, I'm a terrible genre hopper - I just go where the imagination takes me. Just now, I'm into vampires in a big way, but I do feel tugs in different directions - other aspects of the paranormal, a bit of steam punk, historical... I'll get to them all in time :). Thanks for asking! Good to meet you.


  13. Just want to say a big thank you to DeNita and to everyone else who joined me to celebrate the release of "Guitar Man"! Great partying with you :)


  14. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to party with Marie from across the pond!

    Congrats to flchen1 - you won a download of HUNTING KAROLY!!!
