About A PROMISE IGNITED:
Jaime Caldwell had the perfect life with her husband and son. Or so she thought. Over time, the stress of everyday life put a strain on her perfect marriage. The intimacy she once had with her husband is long gone—an intimacy she craves.
What she doesn’t expect, is for that craving to be reignited by an unexpected gentleman with an easy going smile. His flirtatious words fuel her, making her feel wanted, and lighting the passion within her.
But not everything is as it seems…
In the light of a new day, Jaime hopes she can use that passion to reignite her marriage.
A Promise Ignited is a short story, 10K in length, and previously published in Alphas of Sin with extended scenes included. It is a standalone, but the characters appear in A Promise Kept and A Promise Made.

Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He’s used to getting what he wants and he’s set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.
Time is not on Maria and Elijah’s side. There’s a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she’d have to face again. And this time, the stakes are life and death.Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.

I’m Zoe Thorne and I speak to the dead. Unfortunately, dead isn’t always synonymous with good-natured. In fact, most of the spirits I meet have dirty minds and a tendency to create mischief and mayhem.
For the past two months, I’ve been traveling with the cast of The Wraith Files, a paranormal investigation web show. Stony and Blaine are like the perverted, annoying brothers I never had. Our boss, Malachi Flemming, well, he makes my heart beat faster and my hormones dance.
During a break from filming, I’ve returned home to my resident ghost, Teri, an exotic dancer who died thirty years ago. I’m on a mission to find the man who murdered her and see that justice is served.
Preoccupied with my search for a killer, I’m unaware that something dark and twisted lies in wait for me. Not one, but two faceless entities intent on terrorizing me before moving in for the kill.
With unseen enemies shadowing my every move, it’s time to discover how deep my abilities run. I need every bit of power I possess…or I’ll be taking my place among the dead.
A native Texan, C.C. grew up
either reading or playing the piano.
Years later, she’s still not grown up and doing the same things. Since the voices in her head never shut up, C.C.
decided to share their crazy stories and started writing books.
Now that she has a baby girl
at home, C.C.’s non-writing time is usually spent cleaning up poopy diapers or
feeding the poop machine. Sometimes she
teaches piano, cooks, or spends time bugging her hubby and two beagles.
I knew nothing about this book before starting. As most of you know, going in blind is always my first choice. I saw the cover and knew I wanted to read it,so I didn’t even read the synopsis. If at all possible, I suggest you do the same. But if you just have to know a little ..keep reading for my spoiler free review.
The body and mind are resilient and powerful when forced to endure unimaginable trauma and heart wrenching pain…. Lucas has survived an ordeal no one should ever have to go through and coped the best way he knew how. Now a nomad just looking for a home, a place to fit in, and a place where no one knows who he is and what he’s done, he finds himself in Payson. A small town that offers something Lucas needs, a home and a job to feel as close to normal as he possible can..
With too many bad memories, Shyann is forced to return to Payson with her tail between her legs. A town she was hoping to never set foot in again. When she meets a mysterious man that is timid, shy, and she is magnetically drawn to.
The prologue hooked me! I love a suspenseful beginning that makes you hold your breath and pray for a character you’ve just met. Your heart will instantly fall for Lucas, the more you turn the pages the more in love with him you’ll be. The book is in multiple POV and it’s perfect to see the inner workings of each character and see through their eyes the battles that they face and feel what they feel.
While I did struggle through a lot of the beginning of the book it did captivate me at the 35% (ish) mark. I think my only true issue was with Shyann’s character. She’s a spoiled brat that graded on my nerves. But that’s just her and I completely believe in a character being who they are. But I found that she didn’t have a lot of character consistency till we get closer to the middle of the book where we start to see her grow and come into her own. Towards the middle of the book it didn’t read like a struggle anymore. Almost as if the author was refueled and energized. I’m glad I continued because it was well worth it. It’s a great read that I would totally recommend it.
Back to the beginning.. See how it all started in this quick easy read that you won’t be able to put down.
This is the first time c.c wood has written anything in this era. I am in awe and can’t understand why she hasn’t done this before. I loved this book. While it is a “historical” per say… There isn’t a lot time spent on era descriptions (that I sometimes find SO ANNOYING and over done because in my opinion it takes away from the story) C.C sweeps us away into the past to where it all began….You are consumed with the character and the story right off the bat. I am in LOVE with this book and I really can’t wait to see where it’s going to take us.
Well written & Hooked on yet another series by CC Wood
