About the Author

Marion's parents are terribly disappointed with her... They wanted her to have a serious job, providing financial stability and social standing. For years, she really tried to make them happy; she studied hard, got into top schools, graduated with honors and found a high-achieving job... For everyone around her--friends, family and arch-enemies alike--Marion was the typical Type-A personality. What they didn't know was that, deep down, Marion was miserable. She never wanted to be a top executive, brokering deals in New York, London or Tokyo while crossing time zones dressed in designer power suits. Marion wanted to be... a ROMANCE WRITER. She wanted to spend her days in that good ol' tracksuit of hers, in front of her laptop, popping down Oreos like there was no tomorrow. She wanted to fall in love with a different man each time she wrote the first line of a new book (while being happily married to the most handsome man in Great Britain). That's exactly what Marion does these days, and it makes her incredibly happy. She loves to share these happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave, you are welcome to come and say "hello" from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn't sink into insanity. Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help. That's where you can find her: *www.marioncroslydon.com *www.twitter.com/mcroslydon *www.facebook.com/marioncroslydon *www.youtube.com/user/marioncroslydon.

Madison LeBon has spent her life trying to be something other than what she is. Her fear of her family's voodoo curse and psychic abilities makes her decide to isolate herself from anyone. If she doesn't have friends, no one will ever learn about her crazy family and her own weird abilities. As a result, she is sheltered, innocent, and still a virgin at the age of 21.

When she earns a place at Oxford to complete her Master's, Madison takes a chance and becomes closer to a few people assuming the distance will protect her. Unfortunately her ancestors resided in Oxford and their lingering influences send Madison into a tailspin of paranormal activities. She discovers a pair of individuals in a well known painting is based on people who are part of her ancestral line and that their story is still unfinished. Entwined with their own history is the vindictive spirit bound and determined to punish them for their "crimes". This spirit latches onto Madison and sees her as her ancestor, Sarah and as such she must be killed. Madison must unravel the secrets of her past and that of the figures in the painting to stop the vengeful spirit.

I liked Madison. She had a spunkiness to her that I felt showed her personal strength. As a relative innocent to romantic relationships she is immediately smitten with Rupert Vance or Earl Boy as she likes to call him, but doesn't want to succumb to the attraction. His attitude and behavior turns her off but their ancestral connection keeps bringing them together. Madison is constantly battling her heart and her brain when it comes to Rupert. She wants to believe he cares for her but his actions consistently demonstrate otherwise.

I was not a fan of Rupert Vance the entire book. I wanted to like him. Rich, good looking, intelligent...

This book was a little hard to put into a "category" because it's a romance between two college students but their modern relationship is overshadowed by the ghosts of one that took place in the 1600's between their ancestors. The characters are complex and interesting and the plot revolves around the heroine's research into a relatively obscure painting that she's using for her Master's level work at Oxford University. The painting belongs to the family of an Earl whose son is also an Oxford student, and despite their widely different backgrounds, the two are drawn together, just as their ancestors were. And just as back then, there is a jealous villain willing to go to any lengths to prevent their happiness.

Madison comes from a single parent home on the Louisiana Bayou and her grandmother is a Voodoun priestess, from a long line of "gifted" women with abilities to speak to the dead, and Madison is no different, despite her Yale and Oxford education. Rupert is the son of an English nobleman who has a terrible relationship with his father, is on the rowing team, has lots of emotional baggage but not so great grades, and who was not at all likeable at first. As she becomes more deeply involved in the story of the lives of the people in the painting, more threatening things happen to Madison. She also becomes Rupert's tutor and they become closer which causes strange things to happen to him also. Can they solve the mystery and stop history from repeating itself?

There is some sexual content, violence and mild profanity in this story. This book is the first in a series of Oxford mysteries with a paranormal twist from this author.

Heat factor moderate.

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars

Oxford Whispers took me completely by surprise. It's an amazing mixture of romance, history, "who dun it" and "who goes there" mystery, and supernatural elements.

Madison LeBon is running from a familial legacy of voodoo, but getting as far away from it as possible only has her running headlong into it. By going to Oxford, she thought she was putting Louisiana and the association of magic behind her, escaping a past that wasn't hers and a future she didn't want. Little did she know that both were waiting for her in England.

When she sees a painting called "The Wounded Cavalier" by William Shakespeare Burton in her history class, she has visions of the people in it. As she tries to discover who the maiden, the Cavalier, and the Puritan are in the painting, she falls in love with Rupert Vance, the bad boy, English aristocrat she couldn't stand and who looks startlingly like the Cavalier in the painting. To avoid a repeat of history that lies with the painting, she has to uncover the story behind it, but she also learns more about who and what she descends from and the destiny she can't escape.

With a steamy romance that felt doomed from the start, vivid description that set me in the heart of Oxford, and a suspenseful plot that had me anxiously tapping my Kindle for the next page, Oxford Whispers is one paranormal romance highly recommended for adults and mature teens looking for something original in the genre.

Where to start. I enjoyed reading Oxford Whispers. It was nice to read something different for a change. Though the beginning was a little slow once it picked up it sucked you in. I will admit to getting annoyed with several things, which I will mention later but over all Oxford Whispers was an experience. I found the plot original and filled out nicely with mystery, intrigue and just the right touch of paranormal to give it a bite. I loved that we do get to see both PoV's in the book, as there are far too few books out there that give us that. One of the biggest things that impressed me about Oxford Whispers was the distinction between the characters. You could see the difference in the characters. One English high born rich boy and the low born American girl, even the way they think is completely different.

First off we have Madison who actually speaks and thinks like an American. Not like so many other books where you can tell the author is English and the "American" doesn't speak like an American. And let me tell you this girl doesn't take crap from anyone. I am not saying she doesn't have her moments of giving in, but to me it never felt like she was caving more like she thought things through and went after what she wanted. I have to say that I did like Madison, she was refreshing girl who actually thinks with her head and not her hormones. She's smart, loyal (even though I would of said to hell with a few people and told them off) geeky and lovable. Not to mention the best part of all, she totally kicks butt, but I would go into that as it would be too spoilery!

Then we have Rupert the rich, popular womaniser. This guy would definitely have a few STD's especially if he does with other girls what he does with Madison. You don't do that!
