Welcome to the Spellbound Series Universe!

Official Site of the Spellbound Series!
Featuring excerpts, book trailers, spoilers, character bios, and publication info.



Dear Reader,
After reading numerous reviews and comments on the two originally published Spellbound novels from readers on places like goodreads and book review blogs, I decided to give the series a major overhaul.
The one thing that most of the remarks and statements had in common was the lack of romance. Basically, readers wanted more “Trent” and now I am happy to comply!
Initially, the budding romance between Shiloh and Trent was more of a subplot. One of the first editors that I worked with on the series, Rochelle French advised me to strengthen the romantic elements, but at the time, I didn’t think it was necessary. Now I wish I had listened. She was right, because it does have a lot of relevance to the overall storyline, which I realized as I started working on future books for the series. It needed to become more prominent in order for the series ARC to grow.
So after discussing it with my Indie publisher, we decided to divide each book into two parts. Hence, each novel will now become two separate books instead of one. The new editions will contain additional scenes filled with some really hot, sizzling character chemistry between the two stubborn love interests. And there will also be these really cool bonus scenes at the end of some of the books from other character’s point-of-view—including Trent. Plus, a lot of new scenes and much more exciting romance!

These serial novels should read as if you are watching a TV series. Each new book is like a whole season broken up into six separate parts (so far). Some end with a cliffhanger and others without complete plot resolution. However, each book continues the ongoing story of Shiloh and her friends as they face new foes together and fight their own inner-demons, finding bittersweet romance and everlasting friendships along the way. 
So, now I welcome you to the Spellbound series, which is set in the eerie world of Fallen Oaks. North of San Francisco, between Larkspur and Madrone Woodlands in Marin County. This coastal town’s magical charm and sweeping beauty is only a superficial facade. Nothing more than a smokescreen to conceal its murky history.
Those familiar with this area will realize I’ve taken some artistic freedom with this wooded setting. Ah, the power of a storyteller! I’ve chosen the backdrop of Northern California for an obvious reason. It is a beautiful area of lakes, forests, and wildlife.
On a special note, three amazing things really do exist in this locale: the lush forest of Muir Woods, the majesty of Mount Tamalpais, and San Francisco’s infamous roiling fog. I chose to retain these intriguing facets of the region because they contribute to the storyline in a very significant way.
In these serialized novels, you’ll learn the secrets of Fallen Oaks and more about the quirky inhabitants that populate this peculiar neighborhood, where it seems everyone has something to hide. Discover what skulks in the fog and prowls within the dense forest.
Meet the teenage residents that have good looks, lots of teen angst, and a fair share of supernatural intrigue. Read about Trent and Shiloh’s love story, which began with a mixture of lustful teen hormones and beguiling attraction. However, at its core, it is a story about the power of first love and the courage of two hearts that were meant to beat tremendous odds just to be together.
But will fate tear them apart?
I am very excited about this series, and I hope you are, too. I can’t wait to share the next installment with my readers!
Happy reading,
Sherry

A Spellbound Novel - Book Five

Hunting Demons is One Thing…Dating Them is Another.

Life sucks for Shiloh Trudell. And being a demon hunter who’s in love with a cocky half-demon makes things even suckier.

Especially when she discovers that Trent, her sinfully hot boyfriend, is hiding a few dangerous secrets. Like the fact that he’s losing his humanity.

To complicate matters, witches from the local coven are mysteriously turning up dead, and as Shiloh searches for answers, she confronts her worst nightmare…Trent is being blackmailed into becoming the next leader of the Underworld.

But Shiloh is still convinced that she can save him, even after the impossibly gorgeous, fallen angel Raze tells her that a relationship with Trent is forbidden now. Warned to stay away from the only boy she’s ever loved, she can’t ignore the sizzling attraction that ignites whenever they’re around one another. Especially after a swoon-inducing night of stolen passion.

As Shiloh’s world begins to unravel around her, it soon becomes obvious that her destiny lies in one of two choices: vanquish Trent or join him in the Underworld.
