Publisher's Summary

Sandrine Salome flees New York for her grandmother's Paris mansion to escape her dangerous husband. The house, famous for its lavish art collection and elegant salons, is mysteriously closed up. Although her grandmother insists it's dangerous for Sandrine to visit, she defies her and meets Julien Duplessi, a mesmerizing young architect. Together they explore the hidden night world of Paris, the forbidden occult underground, and Sandrine's deepest desires.
Sandrine discovers her erotic nature as a lover and painter. Then darker influences threaten - her cold and cruel husband is tracking her down and something sinister is taking hold, changing Sandrine, altering her. She's become possessed by La Lune: A witch and a 16th-century courtesan, who opens up her life to a darkness that may become a gift or a curse.

Engrossing

I listened to this book and it was hard to even pause it. The sex scenes were delicious. It made me want to move to Paris, become a painter, and practice magic!! A must read for those who love history, art, witches and a good thriller.

Mumble, mumble toil & trouble

If you could sum up The Witch of Painted Sorrows in three words, what would they be?

Female narrator mumbles.

What did you like best about this story?

Seems like it could be interesting if you didn't struggle all the time trying to understand Ms. Ross narrating.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante ?

Phil was Ok, Ms. Ross sounded like someone with a mouthful of marshmallows speaking too fast through a pillow. If she could Slow down & enunciate it might be better.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Mumble, mumble toil & trouble!
