Mystical Imagination
Marie E. Reid



Marnie Tolliver lives a regimented existence until the sudden death of her father leaves the family business vulnerable to take-over, derails her engagement, devastates her invalid mother Deidre, and exposes long-held family secrets.  Health declining, Deidre is frantic to disclose murky details of an ancestral link to Mayan culture, and tries to convince Marnie that she’s in danger.  Insisting her husband’s death renders Marnie subject to Mayan law of Inherited Rights, Deidre dies before Marnie learns more.


Left with a sense of disquiet, puzzling images of exotic places and intimacy with a sexy apparition haunt Marnie's dreams, which affects her waking hours, and prompts Marnie to take off on a much-needed cruise vacation. During one port-of-call, while touring the Costa Rican rain forest, Marnie happens upon an indigenous tribe that entices her to join their rituals and share their meal.  Afterward, she drifts into a surreal state of sleep and her phantom lover appears.


When she awakens, she’s alone, and no longer in the forest. Once back onboard ship, no one believes her story. Marnie returns home to find the family business has a new partner, Etienne Luc Cuvier, the incarnation of her fantasy lover.  Two months later, she learns she’s pregnant.  Unwilling to accept all these occurrences as quirky déjà vu, she recalls Deidre’s ominous revelations, senses her life is in jeopardy, and suspects someone close to her is manipulating events.  But who, and why?

Contemporary M/F Romantic Suspense



Memories Erased
Calculated  Deception
 M. E. Reid


    Aianna Sinclair believes she has it all until her husband develops terminal cancer.  To support his needs, Aianna gets a job closer to home and soon realizes her mistake when she finds herself thrust into a situation rife with deception, conflict, and incompetent, treacherous supervisors. Then her husband dies.  At his funeral, she meets her alleged invalid neighbor Gregorio Galliano, aka Calderone whose imposing stature contradicts his purported infirm status.  Handsome and affable, with an underlying, subtle threat of menace, Aianna stares into jungle green eyes in a too handsome face, and a chill of apprehension sweeps her body.

    Weeks after her husband's funeral, when Aianna returns to work, the Chairman of the Board announces he's closing the offices, offers her another job, and she accepts.  At the new job, it’s déjà vu from day one.  Enmity from co-workers is palpable, the Chairman’s conduct toward her turns bizarre, and the CFO tries to set her up as an embezzler.  It’s not until someone kills her supervisor and she becomes the prime suspect that Aianna realizes she’s the target of something more sinister than antagonism, and she might not survive.
