Bollywood Vermont Style



I discovered a Bollywood music video shares scene locations with my upcoming Northern Circle Coven series (namely Burlington, VT). I mean, like almost all the exact locations in this video are key spots in my novels. I love Bollywood, so this totally made me smile!   Check it out here!

Very Nice PW Review for REACH FOR YOU


I'm delighted by the nice review REACH FOR YOU received from Publisher's Weekly. 


REACH FOR YOU by Pat Esden (Kensington TP/July 2017/978-1-4967-0009-4)

The entertaining, fast-paced third Dark Heart gothic paranormal romance picks up just hours after the final events of Beyond Your Touch, in which Annie Freemont was unceremoniously ejected from the realm of the djinn. She refuses to let that stop her from rescuing her boyfriend, Chase, and her long-lost mother, who are still being held captive in the other dimension. Working with her father and extended family, Annie must make an uncomfortable alliance with mysterious Lotli, whose flute magic can help Annie safely cross between worlds, but it’s clear that Lotli has no qualms about manipulating everyone around her for her own benefit. Annie must find her way back to Chase, whose mental health is suffering from being trapped in the place where he spent so many of his younger years. Though Annie and Chase’s romance is a focus of the series, they’re kept far apart in this installment; fans will hungrily anticipate their reunion, but new readers will be completely lost.

***LIVE OUT LOUD***
I thought I'd live in silence forever . . . and then I met him. I'll never be able to hear, but music has always been a source of comfort for me. Rather than listen to the rhythm, I can actually feel the beat pulsing through me. It's pure bliss. So the moment I saw Thorin playing his guitar, I was mesmerized. I'd never seen anything more beautiful . . . or intimate. I couldn't tell where his body ended and the song began. He's everything I need in my life . . . I'm falling fast, hard, and deep. I want him more than anything. But while I live in silence, Thor lives in secrets. He's holding something back-something that's keeping this intensity, this longing from being real. And the silence may be too loud to bear . . .
