Product Description

Product Description

She holds the key to unlock his past—or unleash hell.

Sidra Patmos has the ability to see the real underbelly of lower Manhattan—a horrifying world where wraiths, demons and a few quirky mortals battle for supremacy. Desperate, she seeks out a paranormal researcher to tell her why her life is a waking nightmare.

Instead of answers, her meeting with the dark and irresistible Van Barlowe unleashes a chain of events far more dangerous than her blackest visions. And a desire she can barely manage to hold at arm’s length.

After three desperate centuries, Van has finally found the Alchemist—Sidra. Somewhere locked deep inside her lies the knowledge that will rescue his family from ruin. The only way to reawaken her abilities is to hold his enemies at bay long enough to convince her to step through the mists of time.

Redemption waits there, and a timeless bond ignited by the undeniable pull between them. The missing ingredient: Sidra’s willingness to risk that Van’s attraction runs deeper than sexual chemistry…

5.0 out of 5 stars Love's Alchemy 8 April 2010
By MNix - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Sidra Patmos is plagued by sinister visions and unexplainable paranormal occurrences that force her to seek out an expert--Van Barlowe. What she discovers is a dark world of demons, wraiths, and immortals who all want something from her. It's a struggle to fight for her sanity and resist her passion for Van.

Van has been searching for the Alchemist for 300 hundred years. The trail has led him to Sidra and she is the means to saving him and his brethren from eternal damnation. He must protect her from those of his kind who seek peace by destroying everything he and his brethren have worked for.

But first, Van must win Sidra's love, trust and willingness to accomplish his goal. Or all is lost.

Ciar Cullen expertly layers paranormal intrigue, mysticism, and romance into Love's Alchemy, until as a reader you can't resist the urge to believe every word. It's sheer talent to possess the ability to seduce an audience into ignoring the fact they're reading fiction. The character development and realistic dialogue adds richness to the narrative. Shadows conceal enemies as friends, and friends as enemies; answers are partially veiled in mystery.

Sidra's and Van's chemistry dazzles and captivates. Both are vulnerable, strong-willed people with a past, present, and future bursting with secrets. Centuries of heartache are lovingly uncovered through Ms. Cullen's paisley pretty writing. Salvation, redemption and exile are played out by the heroes and so-called monsters. Nothing is ever black and white in this thriller, and that's the way I like my harrowing, supernatural literature. References to historical figures are beautifully interspersed into the storyline without missing a beat. Overall, I appreciated the careful construction of each section, the detailed historical value of how alchemy is used in the story and the extra care Ms. Cullen takes to make it all work. While other stories deserve to be labeled as fool's gold, Love's Alchemy is pure platinum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whipped Cream Erotic Reviews 4 Feb 2010
By M. Macfarland - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I became thoroughly enraptured in the mysticism created by Ciar Cullen. This isn't a simplistic tale with minimal plot. Rather, you have a fascinating concept that blooms into a romance that is so much more than you initially perceive. When Sidra meets Van, it's apparent there is a history she remains unaware of - you just have no idea how far back that history goes. As the story progresses and you learn the truth, it's both mind-boggling and completely unexpected. I stopped trying to figure out what was going to happen next and took the ride as intended. The result was an exhilarating journey that is both captivating and emotional. I adored the characters, the plot, the twists and turns, and the new slant on immortality. Although I would love to lavish more praise and provide more details, I won't because the story is best enjoyed when you don't know the specifics. Trust me.

Reader's who enjoy fresh paranormal concepts will appreciate Love's Alchemy for the sheer brilliance of the work. It's been a long time since I've read something so novel, and for that reason alone I think everyone should give this unforgettable story a read. The writing is stellar, the dialogue is witty and tongue-in-cheek, and the love between Sidra and Van is enough to span lifetimes.

Be sure to put Love's Alchemy on your TBR list. This is one story you don't want to miss. 5 cherries

3.0 out of 5 stars Isaac Newton Reincarnation PR 19 Mar 2011
By Renee S. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You might like this book if you like...
1. Reincarnation love stories.
2. Learning about the "secret" life of Isaac Newton.
3. Contemporary PR with mainly a F POV, "Sidra".
4. Strong beginning concept with ties to the "sorcorer's stone" on immortality.
5. Romantic leads with a strong mystical attraction and several graphic sex scenes - but not too many.

You might not like this book if you like...
1. Fast paced UF.
2. Kick a** action scenes.
3. Magic theory.
4. Strong world building.
5. Alpha men who make a difference in the world with their immortality.
6. Characters who know what they want, and aren't afraid to take it.

I felt this book started off with an interesting concept... the female lead is actually a incarnation of the Isaac Newton. I thought, cool, I get to learn about this underused historical figure in literature. I actually liked his POV scenes very much and actually felt the connection he had with the leading man, Dona"van". By contrast, the relationship between Sidra and Van developed very fast for me and was a little too much on the saccharine side of Romance for me. I kinda feel this whole Sorcorer Stone thing is to PR, what Excaliber is to HF. Sigh.
