She's stealing his heart...
Vintage boutique owner Venus Smith is stunned to realize her newest acquisition comes with a larcenous legend. Stolen years ago, the antique mermaid brooch belongs to the Clayworth family. The right thing to do would be to return it, but that means facing Connor Clayworth O'Flynn, the sexy department store heir Venus has had an unrequited crush on since childhood-and the man who helped ruin her father.
...one kiss at a time
Connor knows that Venus has never forgiven him for what happened between their families. But business isn't personal, even though Venus's father's betrayal still cuts him like a knife. So when Venus proposes a deal-she'll return his family's brooch if he helps clear her father's name-he reluctantly agrees. As action-packed days turn into flirtatious fall nights, it isn't long before old memories resurface . . . and new desires ignite. Can two young lovers leave the past behind? Or must they first admit that all they've ever really wanted . . . is each other?
The original comic book from Sherrill Bodine, Patricia Rosemoor, Rosemary Paulas, and Laurie DeMarino
In a diabolical world four women who many consider monsters come together to challenge the forces of evil. The supernatural and haunting World of WHISPERS FROM THE VOID is similar to ours, with several taboo exceptions: Magic works, Aliens exist, Monsters are real.
The Dark Forces that inhabit the World of WHISPERS FROM THE VOID are very strong. Monsters exist and are considered sinful, but tolerated up to a point, and only if they remain underground. All monsters can be divided into seven categories, corresponding to the seven deadly sins: Ghosts = Envy Vampires = Gluttony Flesh-constructs, Zombies & Golems = Wrath Clockwork People, Robots & Artificial Lifeforms = Sloth Mad Scientists & Witches = Pride Succubi & Demons = Lust Dragons, Mummies & Faerie Folk = Avarice Hope for a bright future is uncertain, and most humans in this world are frightened by its supernatural phenomena.
While the forces of good usually win, victory tends to involve great sacrifice. Different cultures have different spells and magical systems, including dark magic. Unavoidably, the price is very heavy for the forces of good and redemption is very difficult for those who choose the path of dark magic. Polytheistic Gods wander the earth and carry some power, but it is generally weak. They can only gain more power based upon the number and extent of faith of their devotees. Most people are of the Christian Faith with their belief in the power of a Biblical God hence the Seven Deadly Sin categories.
The main characters from WHISPERS FROM THE VOID include: A Ghost named Blythe A Vampire named Callie A Flesh Construct named Ruth A Mad Scientist named Idonia. Idonia has formed this Team of Monsters to challenge the forces of evil. They all reside in a mansion next to a Chicago graveyard.
