Look at what's new in paperback!
Two of my novellas are now available in paperback!
The fifth book in my Cajun Series of historical romances...
Love has a way of bringing people together.
Orphaned and alone in antebellum New Orleans, Fiona Riley promises a dying friend she will raise the woman’s child as her own. But without a job and a roof over their heads Fiona fears for their lives. When a letter arrives announcing that relatives in a bayou town are searching for their long-lost cousin, Fiona finds the answer to her prayers, even if it means deceiving others to survive.
Emile Dugas knew she was lying the moment he set eyes on Fiona Riley, an Irish immigrant trying to pose as his distant Cajun cousin. But how could he resist the entreating blues eyes of the angel baby she held in her arms or the fact that a larger force was at work in bringing them together?
"Cherie Claire is a new voice in romance from the heartland of Louisiana. I found The Letter enchanting, original and lyrical from beginning to end. Catch this star rising - her talent is a gift of the Goddess!" — Eileen Charbonneau, author of Rachel LeMoyne
The Ghost is Clear
The sixth book in my Viola Valentine paranormal mystery series...
Some ghosts, like shipwrecks, refuse to stay sunken.
It’s winter break and Viola Valentine and her husband TB hope for a romantic getaway on St. Simons Island along the Georgia Coast while their children enjoy a field trip on neighboring Jekyll Island.
But those on the "Other Side" have other plans.
While Viola’s daughter Gaia grapples with the ghost of an old shipwreck, Vi sees a woman who worked the shipyards during World War II. Since the ghosts keep haunting both sides of the family, are the stories connected?
But that's not all!!
Magic's in the Bag: Creating Spellbinding Gris Gris Bags and Sachets by my twin, Cheré Dastugue Coen and co-author Jude Bradley, is also now available in paperback.
Powerful attraction in one small bag.
Cultures worldwide have long incorporated small bags containing herbs, stones, and other sacred items as part of their belief systems, whether to ward off evil, protect them while traveling or to attract positive elements into their lives. Egyptians carried amulets for protection, Native Americans wore medicine bags filled with healing herbs, and African Americans collected “sticks, stones, roots and bones” inside flannel bags and called them “mojo” or “gris gris.” Gris gris and sachet bags are, in essence, a prayer or magical spell you can carry with you.
Magic’s in the Bag explores this history, plus offers 75 simple spells to create your own gris gris bag, including bags for prosperity, safe travel, contacting spirits, protection, and more. You’ll get tips on which plants to use, what stones are appropriate, what spells work best for phases of the moon — even how to grow a gris gris garden!
