In 1692 the fear of witchcraft is spreading around Salem village. While those who are accused and sentenced face death, everyone else faces the risk of accusations placed upon them.

As Emmalynn Hawthorne, the daughter of a woman hung for witchcraft, places a bouquet of flowers upon her mother’s grave, a circle of black roses sprouts out of thin air. Dark magic, the roses strike fear through her heart when Mary Pruett and the handsome new-comer, James DeKane, spy upon her as they pass along the traveling road. Emmalynn flees and her panic soon turns into terror as another vine of black roses sprouts and grows throughout the inside of her home. Is she a witch? Will she be the next accused?

James DeKane has secrets of his own—ones that could prove deadly for him and anyone he holds dear. At fault for the untimely death of his parents, he must protect his hidden brother and dying sister, all while fearing that the haunting prophecy bestowed upon him at birth will come to pass. Desperate and fighting the monster deep inside of him, he’s searching for the one love who can alter his destiny.

A historical paranormal romance, WHEN THE BLACK ROSES GROW, spins the story of fearing witchcraft and living through persecution in 1692 Salem Village, Massachusetts.

  1. Are you going to write a sequel to when the black roses grow or is that the end of the story?

    • Hi Heidi! Actually, I am working on an outline for another one that will follow. Unfortunately, I have to wait to get my rights back from my publisher in December of 2021 before I can put it on the market. There are changes I would like to make to this book that will help build up a second one. A new and improved ending is first on the list. Thankfully, I was able to correct the typos in the novel, but adding a whole new ending isn’t something they will allow me to do. Believe me, I’m counting down the days. Lol. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
