Christine Wenrick's The Charmed Triology Tour


   How is The Charmed Trilogy Different from Other Paranormal Romances?

First off I would like to thank Vampires, Werewolves and Fairies, Oh My, for having me here today to talk about my recently completed Charmed Trilogy.

Paranormal is such a great genre to play in, and nowadays it can be very difficult to write a story that is completely unto itself, original. With that said, I believe what makes this trilogy different is that our Hero and Heroine, Caleb and Olivia, are put through the ringer right out of the gate in The Charmed, and it binds them together in a short period of time. Some may think of this as insta-love, but what the trilogy asks as a whole is whether or not the feelings these two have for one another can be sustained over time and a very difficult road. They are tested many times over, unbelievably so at times. Are they willing to fight through the obstacles and forces that are trying to keep them apart?

This story, even though it’s set in the supernatural world of heightened powers and strength, will be very personal, I think, for a lot of people. As an author I purposely chose to isolate Caleb and Olivia at the beginning of the first book in a setting that feels remote and shut away, never letting the enormity of the supernatural world overwhelm their initial connection. I did this because, first and foremost, I wanted the reader to walk away from the series feeling as if they’ve been on an emotional roller coaster right along with these two people. The heightened gifts, senses and danger you get from choosing to set them in a paranormal world were simply a bonus! 

I hope you will check out my Charmed Trilogy and see if you agree that the end result is an incredibly action-packed, romantic journey that I hope you romance readers will love.

THE CHARMED
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 1

 “This has to be a dream.  This has to be a dream.  This has to be a dream.”
Olivia Ann Greyson sees only one future for herself – to compose and perform the music she has loved since she was a child.  But that future changes in an instant when a commuter train taking her to the city crashes and is attacked by, unbelievably, a coven of vampires!  As the rabid creatures feed their thirst on the surviving passengers, Olivia is spared from an unthinkable fate because of the intervention of another vampire – Caleb Wolfe, a figure from her past who, for reasons he doesn’t understand himself, would do anything to protect her. 
 After one familiar touch, Olivia recognizes the man behind the vampire.  Soon love and a powerful supernatural connection begins to grow between them.  But with that connection Olivia starts to notice startling changes happening within herself, and violent events make it clear that the vampire coven which wanted her the night of the train crash won’t stop until they have her.
Time is running out for Olivia and Caleb to discover why all this is happening.  And the answers they find may painfully tear their new found love apart.
THE CHARMED will be on sale for ONLY $0.99 from May 13 - 27 on:

THE CHARMED SOULS
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 2

“It was the blood!  The blood was somehow doing this to me!”
Olivia Ann Greyson is a Charmer, a Dhampir with the power to lure the supernatural world’s most dangerous of creatures – and she’s in an impossible situation. She must leave behind Caleb Wolfe, the strong, protective vampire she has fallen madly in love with, in order to learn how to protect herself from the vampires, shifters and demons that will be drawn to her for the rest of her life.

Human Guardian, Alec Lambert, has been assigned to see to Olivia’s training by the organization he belongs to, which is known simply as The Brethren. He takes Olivia to the group’s stronghold in the mountainous regions of Alberta, Canada, where she discovers the answers to her family’s painful past and the extent to which those hunting her will go to capture her. But she also uncovers many secrets and even more questions about this mysterious group she has trusted to protect her – secrets that will have her fighting to get back to the man she left behind.  
. . . but will it be too late?

THE CHARMED FATES
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 3

“You think you know him better than I do?  Interesting . . . and so boringly human.”
Over a year has passed since Olivia Ann Greyson discovered that she is a Charmer, a Dhampir fated to be part of the violent supernatural world that surrounds our human one. In that time, she has strengthened herself physically, learned of her family’s secret past, and found a deep and abiding love with the strongest man she has ever met, Daywalker Caleb Wolfe. But Olivia’s biggest challenge still lies ahead of her . . .

Dark vampire lord Luther Davin has been obsessed with capturing Olivia so he can use her special gifts for his own reasons. As Caleb and Olivia try to make a new life together with their coven, the Nightwalker’s attempts to capture her only intensify and inadvertently bring an unwelcome visitor from Caleb’s past barging back into his life.  
She is Caelestis—Celeste to the modern world—and she claims to be Caleb’s first and rightful mate. Although Olivia has grown confident and secure in her relationship with Caleb, she soon realizes that Celeste sees herself as no less than a goddess among mere mortals and will stop at nothing to get Caleb back—which means Olivia herself must die!
When these two threats collide and fate steps in to pull Olivia away from her new family, will she be ready for her darkest hour and her greatest battle?

  1. Sounds like this will be a great summer read, when I'm alone, so I can read it all at once and mellow afterwards since it will be emotionally draining. Sounds great:)

  2. I love anything romantic and "vampiric," so this series seems like something I will love! I'm a sucker for the :falling in love with the rescuer" stories...especially when they involve romance and vampires...did I mention that? ;)

  3. I've read all three books and really enjoyed them all. The love between Caleb and Olivia felt real, not the insta-love at all. They go through so much throughout all three books that make you hope & pray that things turn out right for them. At the end of each of the first two books I was practically salivating wanting the next installment and when I finally read the final book it was like Ahhhh that was GREAT.


    Here are some of my thoughts on the last book: My Personal Thoughts: Ever have a book turn you inside out?? LOL well, I've had a few and this one was one of them. Sitting there so engrossed in your book that life is just passing you by and then BAM...the bottom falls out in the book or you read something that makes your stomach drop, yep it happens in this exciting third installment of The Charmed Series. I laughed, I cried, I cringed when my stomach dropped, and I also could not put this book down. Christine's writing just got better and better with each chapter and I loved this book. It's my favorite out of the three. We also get a taste of her spin-off series, The Men of Brahm Hill, and oh lordy, it starts with that yummy, sexy as hell shifter, Kane. I am looking forward to that series!
    MY RATING: 5
