    • July 15, 2010

    At a very young age, the Rules of Conduct for the Fallen Angels were drummed into Eli Grigori’s head. Rule number one: Do not befriend a human. Rule number two: Do not interfere in their lives. Rule number three: Do not have relations with a human. Rule number four: Under no circumstances will you ever reveal your true self. He managed to break all of the above.

    Ol’ Hallow’s Eve is the day the veil between worlds is thin. It’s the only day out of the year the preternatural beings are allowed to walk among the humans as their true selves. With Eli’s wings bound and his glamour stripped, the Elders send him back in time before Ryden O’Sullivan knew the truth about him. If she is truly his soul mate, then her heart should recognize him.

    There are those among the Watchers who are afraid Eli might succeed in his quest for love. If he does, everything will change within the brethren. Hashasheen demons, assassins for hire, are sent to take out Eli and Ryden. Eli is a warrior and will fight to keep Ryden safe, but time may be his biggest enemy.

    The Elders gave him until the end of Ol’ Hallow’s Eve. Ryden must fall in love with him by then or his life will be forfeited

    (Previously published by Tease Publishing 2010)
    The last thing that Gillian Metcalf remembers before she passes out is being aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, where she witnessed a dog disappearing as if it were a phantom. Now she's aboard the riverboat, Ida Belle, traveling down the muddy Mississippi. It is 1870, where men carry guns and throw knives. It is a time where reputations mean everything. Before she can determine how she's miraculously stepped from one world into another, she is being forced to marry Zachary Creighton. Trouble follows the man and it looks like she's along for the ride. As she attempts to understand why she was sent back to 1870, she struggles to come to terms with her own desires that tempt her to surrender to a man she barely knows. Zachary Creighton, a gambler with one goal: to win back Creighton Manor. Marriage was not part of this plan. To keep peace with his reluctant bride, he makes a bargain with her. He needs someone to tutor his nephew Tyler, and she needs a roof over her head until they can annul their sham of a marriage. Never did he expect his bride to be embraced into the family fold by his grandmother, Lotti. However, the biggest surprise of all is that he finds himself falling for her charms. When the reason for Gillian's appearance into Zachary's world is finally revealed, their love for each other will be tested. Gillian will have to make a difficult decision before she can find happiness. The stakes are high, but Zachary will risk it all to win Gillian's heart.

    Note from the Author:
    August 2013

    Lost in the Mist of Time is available again! I received my rights back and have released the 2nd edition through KDP Select and Createspace. Enjoy Dougray and Aislinn's story again or if you're reading Lost in the Mist of Time for the first time, enjoy the magic!

    Aislinn Hennessy pens tales of courage, loyalty, and true love, but her heroes of old are pure fantasy--figments of her imagination. She long ago gave up thinking a knight in shining armor would sweep her off her feet, but then she never expected to run him off the road either.

    Sir Dougray Fitzpatrick has buried one wife and vows to never love again--but destiny has other plans for this 16th century Irish Lord. During a battle, a mist separates Dougray from his men and casts him into the future. Dougray must return to Dunhaven and to his century, but Aislinn follows him into the mist, leaving him no choice, but to take her home with him.

    Conspiracies, feuds and unexpected violence are commonplace threats, but along the way, Aislinn and Dougray discover a surprise neither one expects: a chance for love even when they're Lost in the Mist of Time.

    ~ An exciting, contemporary paranormal story of good versus evil from award-winning, bestselling author Karen Michelle Nutt ~

    No soul is safe...
    A vampire from the Grim Sith sept is sucking the souls out of young women from the Boston area, but this sinister crime is far worse than a vampire seeking substance. He's selling the souls to the highest bidder and it seems business is booming.

    A vampire, a werewolf, and a Necromancer are a most unlikely team, but Garran, Harrison, and Isabella plan on putting a kink in the dubbed Soul Taker's plans. It's personal now. One of their friends has fallen victim to the Soul Taker's charms, but to stop him from hurting anyone else, their efforts may involve raising the dead.

    ~ A paranormal short from Karen Michelle Nutt, award winning author and cover designer. This story of romance, with a Christmas setting, is exciting reading year round. ~

    What’s a hunter to do when she’s fallen for the vampire she’s been sent to stake? Cassandra Hayes has been dating Tremayne Graystone, the vampire she’s been sent to eliminate.

    To stake or not to stake is the least of their problems when masked men kidnap them and hold them hostage. They realize all they want for Christmas is a chance to make their relationship work. Kisses under the mistletoe may not make this holiday merry, but they’re willing to give it a shot.

Karen Michelle Nutt's Additional Information


Time Travels have been a passion of mine. I have always been intrigued with the possibility of being able to reach back in time and change the past. Common sense says influencing the past is impossible, but I can’t help but wonder: What if I can? Vampires and shape shifters embrace my darker side where their worlds intertwine with ours with a wee bit of magic. In my spare time, I review for Paranormal Reviews, a great place to find paranormal books and other genres. I love to travel and have enjoyed the rolling green hills of Ireland; the Italian renaissance of Florence, Italy; the wild west of Tombstone, Arizona; the historical essence of Salem and Boston, Massachusetts as well as the intrigue of St Augustine, Florida.
