Celebrating A New Paranormal Romance For Marie Treanor

All day today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Marie Treanor's long awaited sequel to SMOKE AND MIRRORS.

HEARTS AND MINDS by Marie Treanor

The Gifted Series Book Two

Darkness and light in one dangerous, irresistible stranger...

Down to earth psychologist Jenna Hunt arrives in obscure Zavrekestan to find her missing friend, Nell, last seen with notorious gangster Rodion Kosar. But nothing goes the way Jen intended. Complete strangers want to harm her. She shoots one man and travels with another who may or may not be the elusive Kosar, but who's constantly pursued by armed secret police. Dangerous attraction flares, adding excitement as well as unexpected fun to her search.

But Jen's dark, mysterious travelling companion is both gifted and cursed. A powerful healer with blood on his conscience and a terrible tragedy in his past, he's now suffering agonies whenever he exercises his gift, and in this he's not alone. As Jen is drawn deeper into his world of radical dissidents and the paranormally gifted, she discovers the terrors of a ruthless government which will stop at nothing to hold onto power. She finds herself risking all to help the very people she came to rescue Nell from, and neither common sense nor principles can keep her from the arms of the sexy, tormented Nikolai.


Marie Treanor lives in Scotland with her eccentric husband and three much-too-smart children. Having grown bored with city life, she resides these days in a picturesque village by the sea where she is lucky enough to enjoy herself avoiding housework and writing sensual stories of paranormal romance and fantasy.

Marie is the award winning author of nearly forty sexy paranormal romances - Indie, New York and E-published. She is represented by Robert Gottlieb of Trident Media Group.

  1. Good morning Marie and super congrats on your new release!!

    For those not familiar with The Gifted Series, can you tell us a bit more about it and how the books connect? And what are your future plans for the series?

    Have fun with your Cyber Launch Party here and over on Facebook today :)

    Best of luck with the new release and here's to it being a huge bestseller!

  2. Good morning, DeNita, and thank you so much!!

    I tried to reply a few minutes ago, but my comment disappeared, so I hope Blogger's behaving today :). Anyway, to answer your questions...

    The Gifted imagines a whole country with a very high percentage of paranormally gifted natives. It's an obscure, ioslated country, Zavrekestan, which was once part of the Soviet Union but is now a poor and corrupt independent republic. It's full of radical dissidents and paranormal weirdness, and nothing about it or its citizens is quite as it seems!

    The first book, SMOKE AND MIRRORS focuses on Nell, half-Zavreki but brought up in Scotland where she struggles against her heritage and her gifts - until she's thrown into the crazy, chaotic and even criminal world of Zavreki gangster, Rodion Kosar, who may not be the bad guy after all. Rodion can start fires with his mind, melt locks, weapons etc, so he's a formidable opponent :). Nell dreams of the future.

    The second book focuses on Nell's Scottish friend, psychologist Jen, who bites off more than she can chew when she goes looking for Nell in Zavrekestan and finds a mysterious, tormented stranger first.

    Anyway, the books are full of action and adventure, paranormal shenanigans and hot, steamy love :). They're great fun to write and I hope you enjoy them!

    Oh, and I've begun to write Book 3, set in the same world but again with different main characters, although you'll have met at least one of them before if you read the first two books :)
