This is the story of Ace, a young Australian football player from a small town in Queensland, who flees his questioning relatives to holiday in Thailand. There he rescues Matt a young sophisticated man from Sydney, who in turn rescues him and helps him to accept who he is.

NEW 5 star REVIEW
Spellbound by Julie A. Darcy
"A coven of twelve witches and a woman with the blue-black hair of a raven’s wing and bright blue-green eyes, congregate around a large iron black cauldron"
That is how Spellbound starts. And as good as that line is, it just gets better from there. Isabella is a modern woman determined to make a better life for herself than the one she finds herself in as the fiancé of a rich, powerful Russian Mafia boss.
I don't want to give away any spoilers but I can say, she makes her escape and the adventure begins.
Julie A. D’Arcy creates compelling, realistic characters. This enchanting story seized me to read it in one sitting. It's that good.

Whisper of Yesterday
By Julie A. D'Arcy
Review from Reviewer Cornelia Amiri-
It is always hard for an author to find a creative way to involve a ghost, with the limitations of a spirit's body, in the tantalizing, heated love scenes of a romance. Julie A. Darcy's method is smooth, superb, and original. I found myself so attached to the intriguing, fully fleshed out characters of Alyssa and Aidan that I know they will haunt me for some time to come.
---What follows is an interwoven tale of chilling betrayal and a haunting love story that traverses centuries...
