Happy Hallowe'en!


For hundreds of years witches have been persecuted; forced to keep their heads down and conform to laws that we never agreed to.  To be a witch is to live a hunted life; to suffer the stupidity and ignorance of those around you, even though you could outclass them with the simplest spell. I was born to free the witches from oppression.  I am the Shadow Witch.  I have freed my kin from the so-called justice of the witch-hunters and their Malleus Maleficarum Council.  In one night, the world was thrown into chaos, and for once it was the witch-hunters that were forced back.

Remember LoveQuintal's Return (The Bounty's Retreat #1)Home Again, Home Again (The Bounty's Retreat #2) Following on from the review of the first in the Bounty's Retreat series: Quintal's Return, Nadine Christian has taken the time to answer a few questions for this blog.


1) First of all, a major factor in your book is the Island itself, was it always your aim to promote Pitcairn in your work? Well, it started off as a way to introduce my island to readers if I'm honest. I wanted to share what it's like to live here, with a little fictional oomph to mix in to the scenery. I'm glad you found both worked!  Unfortunately Yeti-man is a fictional character darn it all! 
2) What was the inspiration behind the Bounty's Retreat hotel? (ie the economic importance) We don't have a hotel/motel here. We do homestays for our visitors, and we love it, but wondered what would happen if we did have a hotel…

5 out of 5

Synopsis
A new job, a new love…and someone out for revenge.

Hotelier Kate Quintal and her sister Jen are hired to run a new luxury hotel on Pitcairn Island. Anticipating only the hard work that running the new facility would entail, a burgeoning romance with the burly and handsome Bryce Brown is the last thing she expected. With a new love and the success of the island’s new tourism endeavor, life seems sweet. 

So, why are things suddenly falling apart? Who is trying to sabotage the hotel, and why? Kate finds herself fighting, not only for her job, or her heart…but her life.

Review
The sisters, Kate and Jen Quintal are relocating to their parent's home of Pitcairn Island, where they are running the hotel that will make or break Pitcairn's tourism trade.  The small community of Pitcainers are depending on them to do a good job, and nothing else counts.
Until romance and revenge complicates matters.
