Emily Macque is a junior partner in her father’s law firm and heads to a remote estate 250 miles north of Chicago to settle an estate not realizing she’s about to meet a man haunted by his past and embroil herself into a dangerous situation. An eerie and captivating story of mystery and romance, rife with steamy, erotic love scenes and surprising twists, The Para-Portage of Emily is a must-read.

This captivating paranormal romance plays out in tantalizing fashion. The mystery, magical setting, and carefully engineered plot kept me engrossed. The writing flows and the characters are unforgettable. By the end, I was totally involved with their story, and emotionally invested in the outcome. Well done!

Should John Grisham and EL James have a secret love child, she would no doubt pen legal thrillers with a luscious layer of the erotic. They would name their child Muffy Wilson and send her to Stephen King for some pointers in the paranormal.

Wilson, in the obliquely titled "The Para-Portage of Emily", interweaves these three diverse genres into a compelling, magic carpet of a novel that takes Emily Macque from Chicago to a bitter island estate two hundreds miles north in the frozen sea. Emily is the striking junior partner in her father’s law firm, her mission, to settle the probate on an estate, her destiny to fall into the arms of Colin Jorgenson, a seaman haunted by a past love that torments his life.

Intelligent, well-written, with fully fleshed out characters and a story with more twists than a spiral staircase, "The Para-Portage of Emily" had me gripped until the very last page.

Spellbinding!!

This is one of those books you find hard to put down. Muffy Wilson has sculpted her excellent word usage with care and breathed life into characters that jump off the page, telling a story amid a myriad of emotions.

Romance, anguish, thrills, tears, suspense … you name it, this book has everything. Brilliant imagery and use of senses that place you in scenes wanting to know the next bit, and the next, and the next. You find yourself urging the brilliantly executed characters that you can't fail to fall in love with, to make decisions and bring everyone together to be happy.

I can't wait to read more of Muffy's wonderful writing.

The Para-Portage of Emily walks a surreal tightrope between a woman’s loneliness and an ancient love that transcends time. Beautifully told and artistically written, it tells the story of Emily, who goes to an island estate to handle family business as well as rest from the effects of a heart condition. As she delves into the history of the house and its original occupants, Colin and Amalya, she becomes obsessed with the passion and romance of their forever love for each other. Soon, the line between reality and the fantastic blurs, leaving a confused and heartsick Emily to wonder if it is possible to cross the barriers of time and space to possess a love so pure, ethereal and everlasting.

This author has written a terrific story full of heart-rending emotion, lust and laughter. Remarkably, she interjects spell-binding poetry in her flowing prose, giving her story an almost eighteenth-century flavor. Readers will smile at the climactic twist Ms.Wilson springs with characteristic flourish as well as adore the characters of a dog and cat that lend added spice and humor to her sprawling narrative.
