Promo and Review: Shadows of Scars and Sorrow by Mary Palmerin

Available Now

Everett Brown has secrets. Secrets that Lyla has been waiting for him to tell her for months. He has successfully evaded them, but Lyla is becoming impatient.

 With the vicious attack of his beloved still fresh in his mind along with the painful loss he feels, his emotions play a battle against one another, testing his strength and ability to hold himself together.

 Will the secrets that he keeps jeopardize his relationship to the woman who has his heart? Or will he learn to cope with memories that resurface with a vengeance and move on to the next phase of his life... marriage.

 In this second installment of this beautifully tragic series, Everett Brown will face the family he thought he knew, a past he tries so desperately to disassociate himself from, and the potential for his life to be turned upside again. But is he strong enough to make it through another nightmare?

 With Michael Thomas and Davis Moore still free, justice has yet to be served. In this whirlwind contemporary erotic romance novel, this young couple's relationship will be tested with several wicked curve-balls and twists that even they aren't prepared for.




Succumbing to Scars and Sorrow [book one]

Lyla Harper is sure she will be alone for the rest of her life. After she leaves Kansas for college in Chicago, she hopes she will never have to face her dark secrets again. Four years later, Lyla lands an internship at a prestigious firm, hoping to plant her roots and close the door to her past forever. Unfortunately, Lyla is about to learn that the past has a way of finding her, no matter how well she hides.

 After she is assigned to assist a marketing millionaire and notorious jerk, Lyla attempts to overcome her pessimistic view of the world and move on with her life. But after she lays eyes on her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor, Everett Brown, her secrets begin to resurface, prompting her to regress into her old coping ways. Led by curiosity and an undeniable attraction, Lyla pursues a passionate relationship with Everett and slowly begins to feel like a woman again. Now all she has to do is decide whether to tell him the truth.

 In this contemporary romance, only time will tell if a young woman’s new lover will be able to save her from herself as her past emerges from the darkness to confront her once and for all.

About the Author

I am 26 years young and I have been writing for as long as I can remember, scribbling fairy tales down on notebook paper as a young girl, writing poetry though my teen years, and many short stories (all of which I have kept).

I love to read, every writer was a reader first. I still remember how I felt when I read The Giver for the first time and the emotions of love, loss and heartache in Gone with the Wind. Being taken to a place away from reality is truly awesome!

I published my debut novel, "Succumbing to Scars and Sorrow" (book 1 of The Sorrow Series) in August 2013. I have been told it is boundary pushing and taboo, but that I wrote it with sensitivity and grace. It is centered around a woman that is all too real, having a dark past that she tries to disassociate herself from and forget about.

She finds love, and to me, that is important giving women like her a voice. They deserve their place in the world of HEA. I just released a prequel novella, "Secrets of a Broken Girl" in December 2013 which tells the tale of being a survivor holding onto hope. It describes her journey near the beginning of the darkness, giving my readers insight into the heartbreaking path that she was taken on, the pain that she feels, and the drive that she has to survive, move on, and lead a life free from the memories that haunted her for so many years.

My second novel, "Shadows of Scars and Sorrow" (book 2 of The Sorrow Series) is due to be released in Feb 2014. It is told from my male lead's POV.

Shadows of Scars and Sorrows Review 4 Stars

It is recommended you read book one first, Succumbing to Scars and Sorrows.

Book two of The Sorrows Series picks up where Succumbing to Scars and Sorrows ends with Lyla and Everett Brown moving into a home together, building a relationship on trust.

Communication is the key to whether or not they will make it or lose it. Still recovering from the brutal attack by Davis Moore, Everett has made it his mission to protect Lyla.

Oh, my. There is a lot going on here. In between hot and heavy sessions in bed, on the couch, up against a wall, on a counter,  photo tumblr_mtalu8EsBp1rz2cbjo1_500_zps45d7f2db.gif Everett‘s goal is to make sure the men responsible for hurting Lyla are caught and pay for their sins and that includes Michael Thomas, Everett’s step father.

Not as dark and painful as book one, Lyla is coping with her past with help from her therapist. The beginning is a little slow as Layla and Everett adjust to living together but the author nailed it at the end!.

He is trying to find the perfect time to tell Lyla about his family, mainly his mother. He is so swoon worthy, always putting Lyla’s needs and safety first but how much is too much and when she feels suffocated will she run?

OMG, Michael Thomas is a monster who will burn in hell one day and the connection he will have with Lyla will floor you. When you start to realize what’s happening and who is involved it comes to quick end. The author did a good job tying together friends and family into an

ending which left me screaming… nooooo? wallslide photo wallslideHA.gif
